Israel’s systemic discrimination against knife-wielding attackers revealed

Despite the ubiquity of smart phones, it’s still not every day that a Palestinian terrorist attack is clearly captured on video. This may explain why a clip of a Palestinian woman stabbing an Israeli security guard at the entrance to a settlement on Nov. 8 was so widely circulated, even within British media typically averse to publishing evidence demonstrating the accuracy of ‘Israeli versions’ of events.

In case you haven’t seen it, here it is:

As you can see, shortly after the security guard asked the 22 year-old Palestinian woman for identification, as she approached the entrance to the settlement, she reached into her purse, grabbed a knife and stabbed him. 

The Independent was one such British news site which published the video, using the accurate headline: Palestinian woman stabs Israeli guard at West Bank settlement Beitar Illit entrance in CCTV video of knife attack.

However, though the video was published almost without commentary, editors evidently found it necessary to add one sentence of text below the clip.

Clearly, the footage represents just one more example within a pattern of systemic Israeli ‘discrimination’ against knife-wielding attackers.
