Australia’s Daily Telegraph Omits Israelis From List of Terror Victims on Newspaper Cover
Australia’s Daily Telegraph on Saturday failed to mention Israeli victims of terror on a list of those who were killed in recent terrorist attacks around the world, a media watchdog reported on Sunday.
According to HonestReporting, the cover of the newspaper’s Saturday print edition featured a list of terror victims in Brussels, Orlando, Paris, Istanbul, Ankara and other locations across the globe — in the wake of the truck-ramming attack in Nice last week that left at least 84 people dead and hundreds wounded.
The list, however, made no mention of any terror attack that took place in Israel recently, including the brutal slaying of 13-year-old Hallel Yaffa Ariel, who was stabbed to death in her bed at her Kiryat Arba home by a Palestinian terrorist on June 30. Also left out from the list was the shooting attack south of Hebron on July 1 in which Rabbi Michael “Miki” Mark was killed and his wife and two children were wounded.
“Since June alone, six Israelis have been murdered in Palestinian terror attacks. Since 13 September 2015, 40 people have been killed,” HonestReporting managing editor Simon Plosker wrote. “Do Israeli lives not matter to the Daily Telegraph?”
The Daily Telegraph did not immediately reply to The Algemeiner‘s request for comment.
On Friday, CNN similarly failed to mention attacks in Israel on a list of terror incidents that occurred around the world in the last 30 days.
