Los Angeles Times Whitewashes Murder of 3 Israelis

From left: murder victims Alon Bakal, Shimon Ruimi and Amin Shaaban

On New Years' Day, Israeli Arab Nashat Milhem opened fire in a Tel Aviv bar, killing Alon Bakal and Shimon Ruimi and injuring at least three others. During his flight from the killing scene, Milhem killed taxi driver Amin Shaaban, his third murder victim.

Here's how The Los Angeles Times whitewashed that deadly attack this week: "After an Arab citizen attacked a Tel Aviv bar in January. . . "

The assailant did not merely attack a Tel Aviv bar. He murdered three people, so why the obfuscation?

Did he (Nashat Milhem) "attack a bar" or kill 3 Isrealis. Can't you report the news as it happens? What business are you in to?

SO long as there is anti-semitism, there will be facts obscured, Israelis made the demons, even when they are defending themselves, and increased hatred learned from parents. SO long as this hatred continues, peace will be a dream!
