Where's the Coverage? Israeli Women Being Murdered by Terrorists


While most of the mainstream media has been preoccupied covering the horserace in the presidential primaries, precious little attention has been paid to a series of violent attacks on Israeli women by knife-wielding Palestinian terrorists. Twenty-three year-old Shlomit Krigman is the most recent victim to succumb to her wounds. She was buried a week shy of her 24th birthday.

Ms. Krigman and another woman, Adina Cohen, were stabbed by two attackers outside a market in Beit Horon, near Jerusalem. The murderers also tried to bomb the market but the devices failed to explode. The carnage could have been much greater had a quick-thinking store clerk not used a grocery cart to keep the terrorists from entering the market. The killers were eventually shot by a Druze security guard.

Watch security video of the attack in this report:

Virtually only the Israeli, Jewish, and some specialty media like CBN, above, reported on this event.

The New York Times did cover the story prior to Ms. Krigman’s death, but headlined the article with the death of the Palestinian assailants. The newspaper has since reported Ms. Krigman’s death, but only in the tenth paragraph of a story about an exchange between Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon.

CAMERA has noted that leading U.S. newspapers downplay and ignore the multiple recent stabbings of Israeli women. Sadly, that pattern continues. Where’s the coverage?
