Using resources from across Israel, The Algemeiner will regularly publish details of attacks on Israeli civilians and military personnel, which occur on a daily basis, but are unreported in the United States and abroad. This report was compiled with the assistance of Yehudit Tayar, who sits on the Board of Directors for Hatzalah Yehudah and Shomron, a voluntary emergency medical organization with over 500 volunteer doctors, paramedics, and medics who are on call 24/7 to assist Arabs and Israelis in need of urgent medical care.

  • Wouldn’t it be more appropriate to clarify whether these attacks took place in Israel or the Territories. It would make sense for contextual reasons seeing that Israel occupies the territories and the violence against Israelis in the territories is precipitated by the oppressive occupation. It certainly is suitable to have the above information available but it seems like the lack of reporting on such events in the American media is hardly an issue seeing as the media is still drastically ‘pro-Israel’ despite the occasional CNN piece. Add to that, the unflinching congressional support and foreign aid make the absence of daily ‘attacks’ on Israelis almost a non-issue.

    • Bonnie Prince Charlie

      And to which ‘oppressive occupation’ would you be referring? Perhaps the one that has resulted in the West Bank having a rate of economic growth which by far outstrips that of every other Arab country which is not ‘occupied’ by Israel?

      If the Arabs want total self-government for the West Bank and Gaza, all they have to do is recognise Israel’s right to exist in peace as a Jewish state and then negotiate the boundaries which will guarantee Israel’s security. So why won’t they?

    • John get a clue!

  • Wouldn’t it be more informative to have a list of number of deaths:
    1) Jewish against Arab,
    2) Arab against Jewish?

  • Thank you, Yehudit does great work, glad she has help now to share to a greater audience!
