On the morning of November 2, a terrorist and an accomplice tried to stab an Israeli soldier at the Jalame (Gilboa) crossing north of Jenin. On that same day, five Palestinians from Hebron were arrested when an IED was found in the vehicle in which they were travelling.

Later in the afternoon, a terrorist from Hebron stabbed three people — including an elderly woman — in Rishon LeZion.

“Two people — a man in his 40s and a woman in her 80s — were in serious condition,” the Magen David Adom rescue service said. The third victim, 26, was lightly hurt.

The attacker, identified by authorities as a 19-year-old Palestinian man from Hebron, stabbed the 40-year-old man from behind on a bus on Tarmab Street, got off the bus, and ran to the adjacent Herzl Street, where he stabbed the elderly woman and the young man.

In the early evening of the same day, another senior citizen was stabbed by a terrorist in Netanya.

An Israeli man, 71, was very seriously wounded in a stabbing attack in Netanya early Monday evening.

Witnesses said the victim bled profusely from a single stab wound. He was evacuated by Magen David Adom paramedics to the city’s Laniado Hospital.

The attacker was confirmed by police as a 23-year-old Palestinian from the West Bank city of Tulkarem, which lies just ten miles east of Netanya. He was shot by a police officer, reportedly while attempting to flee the scene.

None of those incidents received any coverage whatsoever on the BBC News website.

    Is anti-Semitism inherited in Great Britain or is it taught. Whatever, the British have a long record of being anti-Semitic and the media are making it now official.

    The only weapon available to the antisemites: lies.

  • Does anybody, anybody at all, still watch the Beeb? This is a dying news service, because it avoids the news at all costs.

    The first think of modern media is taught is to lie convincingly. You have to undergo a vigorous test if you pass you can be employed by the BBC & other broadcasters the same applies to foreign correspondents. I your lies are convincing you stay on the job if not out you go. The media believe in Goebbels credo if you lie long anough you will be believed. Taquiáh is the Muslim version but has the same label. These rules apply when applied to put a bad face on Israel victims.
