Since the beginning of December 2015, the BBC News website has published one report on the subject of the ongoing wave of terrorism against Israelis. That December 4th article came after a 10-day hiatus in reporting on terror attacks in Israel, and was followed by a further 10-day (to date) hiatus, during which the BBC refrained from covering any Palestinian terror attacks, including the December 14 vehicular attack in Jerusalem, which was claimed by Hamas.

A terrorist from East Jerusalem plowed his car into a group of Israeli civilians at a bus stop at the entrance to Jerusalem on Monday afternoon, injuring 14 people. A 15-month-old baby was badly hurt, and two other people were moderately hurt, one of them a woman in her 70s. The infant’s mother was also among the injured.

Police named the terrorist as Abed el-Muhsen Hassuna, a 21-year-old resident of the neighborhood of Beit Hanina. He was shot dead as he tried to exit the car. A new axe and a new screwdriver were found in the vehicle.

A stoning attack on the same day in which three people were wounded was likewise ignored. Acts of terrorism that the BBC has found it unnecessary to report since the beginning of December also include:

The corporation is clearly not fulfilling the pledge made to its funding public “to keep them in touch with what is going on in the world, giving insight into the way people live in other countries.”
