Under the headline “Jewish settler is killed in West Bank,” a May 1 World article included reports of the following incidents: “A Palestinian stabbed a Jewish settler to death in the West Bank on Tuesday.” And, “In the Gaza Strip, an Israeli airstrike killed an Islamist militant.” And “Settlers set fire to olive groves in the villages of Asira al-Qibliya, near Nablus, where a mosque was damaged in an attempt to set it on fire, Palestinians reported. Seven girls on a school trip were hurt when two buses were pelted with stones.”
Since the preponderance of violence described in the article was by Israelis against Palestinians, it was hard to understand the headline.
Of course, the killing of an Israeli might be highlighted in an Israeli newspaper, but why should The Post see the incident through Israeli eyes?
