Sunday, June 18, in many Israeli Newspapers discussed how the foreign media covered the tragic events in Jerusalem, where last Friday three armed terrorists carried out the attack, which killed 23-year-old pogranichnitsa adas Malka and several Israelis were injured. The attackers were shot dead.
Special attention is paid to the message header for Twitter British broadcasting Corporation BBC «Three Palestinians killed after deadly stabbing in Jerusalem» («Three Palestinians killed after the deadly attacks with the use of bladed weapons in Jerusalem»). Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has demanded that the BBC remove or alter this header. It was supported by many politicians and public figures in Israel and abroad, in particular Donald trump Jr., the son of the President of the United States.
Soon the message header, distorting the description of actual events, was removed from Twitter, the BBC, and the BBC website was posted, the title is «Israeli policewoman stabbed to death in Jerusalem» («Israeli female police officer stabbing in Jerusalem»).
However, the titles of many other media still present events in Jerusalem in a distorted form. For example, the headline on the website of Qatari TV channel «al Jazeera» seems to be «Palestinians shot dead after Jerusalem Old City attacks» («Palestinian shot dead after attack in the Old city of Jerusalem»). About the murder of the employee of frontier service said only in the subtitle.
Similar headers are used by many Arab and Iranian media, including in English.
Note that the Russian state RIA Novosti news Agency the message, published a few hours after the events in Jerusalem, when it was known all the details, chose the title «Israeli police shot and killed in Jerusalem, three Palestinians». This publication provoked an angry reaction from many users of social networks, but not commented upon by the Israeli authorities.
Yet another state-owned Russian newspaper «Russian newspaper», on the night of 17 June on its website published a message entitled «Three Palestinians shot dead in an attack on police patrol in Jerusalem.» On the death of the girls, police said in the text of the article, but the title creates a distorted view of the incident.
