Through Kefiyah colored glasses.

In the third such attack in less than a year, a terrorist driving a bulldozer flipped a police car and tried to ram a bus full of school girls in Jerusalem.  Before he could complete his attack he was shot dead by a bystander and police.

The BBC Headline:

"Digger Driver Shot Dead In Jerusalem"

Memo to UK Jews:  What the hell are you waiting for?  Get out while you still can!

They changed the title to read "New Digger Attack in Jerusalem." But they still had to put quotation marks around the first three words in the headline and the article begins with the disclaimer that Israeli police "say they are treating it as a terrorist attack."

So there you have it, David (or so you claim to be named).

Did BBC really report the bus was full of school girls? It's not in the online edition now, but we all know how easy it is to edit online "news". We heard about this from IsraelNationalNews.com a few minutes after it happened and they were reporting that the bus had been empty. Here's their updated report: http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/130282

It seems to me, in a rational society, that unemployed Jews would obtain their construction equipment licenses in an expedited fashion and the ticking time bomb Arabs would be introduced to the concept of finding work among their own - like in one of the countries they really originated from.

The jewish Brits I know are quite happy there and some also enjoy their standing in the UK as some kind of modern Judenrat.

Indeed. Nothing to add.

I believe the school girls had evacuated the bus by the time the driver managed to get beyond some electrical pole which had been stopping it before. Without the pole, there would have been a much worse scenario.

"Traffic Accident"?

"Natural Response"?

"Terrorist Attack"?

All equally plausible, of course:

It's funny everyone got outraged about the heading. The real back-stabbing happens in the last six paragraphs.

What part of history doesn't the "journalist" in charge get, I wonder?
