Leading French news channel Euro News distorted remarks made by US Secretary of State John Kerry about the recent series of Palestinian terrorist attacks in Israel on Wednesday, a media analyst pointed out.

The headline for an article dated November 25 reads, “John Kerry denounces Israeli-Palestinian violence as ‘acts of terrorism.'” The first sentence of the Euro News story says: “US Secretary of State John Kerry has denounced the recent spate of violence between Israelis and Palestinians as ‘acts of terrorism.'”

However, a Reuters story on the same topic says Kerry’s reference to “acts of terrorism” was directed explicitly at the Palestinians. “Kerry on Tuesday described a wave of Palestinian knife and car-ramming attacks as ‘acts of terrorism’ that must be condemned as he held talks with Israeli and Palestinian leaders on how to end the violence,” the story reads.

“It is very clear to us that the terrorism, these acts of terrorism which have been taking place, deserve the condemnation that they are receiving,” Kerry told reporters during a joint press conference with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. “And today I express my complete condemnation for any act of terror that takes innocent lives and disrupts the day-to-day life of a nation.”

At Security Council Parley on Middle East, US and Israeli UN Envoys Decry Iranian Regional Provocations

The US and Israeli envoys to the UN slammed Iran's rulers at a Wednesday meeting of the Security Council on...

Gidon Shaviv, a researcher for the Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America (CAMERA), juxtaposed the Euro News and Reuters headlines in a tweet:

Meanwhile, the San Francisco Chronicle, reporting on a Palestinian knifing attack in the West Bank that left one Israeli soldier dead, also angered media critics for appearing to portray the Palestinian stabber as the victim.

The headline for the news brief ran, “Palestinians shot in assault,” and the first sentence said, “Israeli troops shot and killed a Palestinian attacker who stabbed an Israeli soldier to death Monday at a West Bank gas station.”

But in its next news brief, about girl suicide bombers in Nigeria and Camaroon, the Chronicle led with a round-up of the victims.

    Some months ago, the Cape Times.\, well known for false reporting on Israel,had a hheadline. ISRAELI SOLIER KILLS PALESTINIAN. HOW MANY PEOPLE READ THE STORY? tHE HEAD LINE TELL A STORY.
    IN THE BODY, IT SAID AFTER THE PALESTINIAN TRIED TO RUN OVER 3 ISRAELI WOMEN SOLDIER, SOME VERY SERIOUSLY WOUNDED.

    THAT TYPE OF REPORTING, IS WHAT CREATES HATRED OF JEWS AND ISRAEL

    THE HEAD LINE IS WHAT SELLS NEWS PAPERS.

    Not surprised at this Euronews story.That organization has had a rigid policy of anti-Israel and pro-Palestinian reporting for years.So typical of European anti-Zionism (read : anti-semitism).

    Seems like that French journalist likely went to a US university and studied under one of those maahvelous imported pro-Palestinean professors who are continually sponsoring BDS movement activities.
