Ever since the recent escalation in Arab terrorism began - with daily brutal stabbings, shootings and car-ramming attacks targeting Israeli civilians and security forces alike - many Israelis have been enraged by what they see as biased reporting by western media outlets.

Much of the claims of bias surround the unending stream of questionable headlines, which lead with the deaths of "Palestinians" - without noting that they were in fact terrorist killed by Israelis in self-defense as they launched attacks.

And it isn't Israelis alone who have objected to the way some outlets have been reporting on the recent violence. The BBC's own former chairman recently scolded the news corporation for drawing a false "equivalence" between slain terrorists and their victims.

The outlets in question have defended their coverage, claiming they are merely striving for "balance."

But how would Europeans feel if the shoe was on the other foot?

That's what veteran Israeli journalist Zvika Klein of the NRG Hebrew news site went to find out.

Equipped with doctored headlines reporting the recent deadly terrorist attacks in Paris in a similar fashion (7 Men Shot Dead During Paris Attack), Klein asked random passersby in the French capital what they thought.

The response?

Speaking to Arutz Sheva, Klein said the aim of the video was "to show the world how an Israeli feels about the hostile and biased coverage" of attacks against Israelis.

Was it effective? Comment below and let us know your thoughts.
