BBC News claims motive for NY stabbing attack “not clear”

The claim appears in eight different versions of the BBC report.

On the morning of December 29th the BBC News website published a report concerning the stabbing attack at the house of a Rabbi in Monsey, NY.

That article is currently headlined “Monsey stabbing: Five people wounded at home of New York rabbi”. All eight versions published to date include the claim that the motive for the attack “was not clear”.

Apparently the BBC is unable to fathom why a masked attacker might enter the home of a Rabbi located next to a synagogue and begin randomly stabbing people.

The latest three versions of the report include the following:

“In April a gunman killed a female rabbi and wounded three people at a synagogue in San Diego.”

The murdered woman – Lori Gilbert-Kaye – was not “a female rabbi”.
