Huffington Post Does Not Recognize Vehicle-Ramming Terrorist Attacks Against Israel


In the wake of the recent ramming attack in London, the Huffington Post features a nearly 2 minute video on vehicle ramming attacks as a new form of terrorism. The video states "Here are the vehicle attacks that have occurred in the last year" and then it shows footage of attacks in London, Nice, Berlin and Stockholm. There is no mention of several vehicle attacks in Israel over the past year.

All told there have been over 60 ramming attacks by Palestinians against Israelis.

The Huffington Post has a long and disturbing history of anti-Israel articles, opinion pieces and on-line commenting. The failure of this featured video to even recognize the occurrence of terrorist attacks against Israel is a striking example of implicit bigotry and dehumanization of Jews. The implication is that Israeli victims of terrorism do not deserve recognition or the humanitarian empathy bestowed upon European victims.

This continues a troubling pattern where the British media does not acknowledge ramming attacks against Israelis.

Since this comment is FACTUAL I am sure it will not be posted. Huffington Post features a video on car-ramming as a form of terrorism. But its list of attacks over the past year--including incidents in the UK, France, Sweden, and Germany--ignores Israel, where all told, there have been more than 60 vehicle ramming attacks by Palestinians against Israelis. As a gay man I can tell you now the twisted facts those of you in the media present or the plain out untruths are the very reason the public no longer trusts you. And one of the main reasons some many gays such as myself voted for President Trump.
