BBC NEWS COVERAGE OF TERRORISM IN ISRAEL – AUGUST 2022

The Israel Security Agency’s report on terror attacks during August 2022 shows that throughout the month a total of 209 incidents took place: 172 in Judea & Samaria and 37 in Jerusalem and inside the ‘green line’.

In Judea & Samaria, Jerusalem and inside the ‘green line’ the agency recorded 135 attacks with petrol bombs, 39 attacks using pipe bombs, 23 shooting attacks, ten arson attacks, one rock throwing attack (the ISA only records rock throwing incidents resulting in moderate and serious injuries) and one stabbing attack.

In addition, 1,233 incidents of rocket fire were separately recorded in the Gaza Strip sector during Operation Breaking Dawn (August 5th – 7th inclusive). The BBC reported that 1,100 rockets had been launched during that period.

Fifteen people were wounded in attacks during August. A civilian was injured in a petrol bomb attack on August 10th. Eleven people were injured in a shooting attack in Jerusalem’s Old City on August 14th. The BBC News website’s report on that attack noted eight people injured.  One member of the security forces was wounded in a shooting attack in Kfar Burkin on August 25th which did not receive any BBC coverage. Two civilians were injured in a shooting attack at Joseph’s Tomb on August 30th which was not reported on the BBC News website.

In the first eight months of 2022 the BBC News website reported just 0.85% of the terror attacks against Israelis which actually took place (not including the rocket fire during Operation Breaking Dawn) and 89% of the resulting fatalities.

    In 1947, the UN decided to divide Palestine into two countries.
    One for Jews and another for Arabs. The Arabs disagreed and started a war against the Jewish state. Over the past 74 years, there were several wars. In all wars, the Arabs were defeated.

    Despite this, at the end of the 20th century, appeared another Arabs’ state west of the Jordan River.
    In this new Arab state, Jews are prohibited from building.
    Jews from Israel cannot be in the Gaza Strip and in areas A & B – even as part of tourist groups.

    The solution to the conflict in Palestine is possible only according to the Cypriot model.
    ALL 6.5 million Palestinian Arabs must obtain citizenship of their new country.
    All local Arabs will pay some taxes in Ramallah.
    For example: income tax, health care tax, pension tax, national insurance tax, etc.
    This will lead to a gradual economic separation between Jews and Arabs.
    The economic division will be followed by the physical separation of the two multi-million peoples in Palestine and the fading of the age-old conflict.
