BBC: 'Palestinian shot dead after Jerusalem attack kills two'
Shavua tov u'moadim l'simcha, a happy holiday to all of you. Yes, that screen cap really was the BBC's headline of a terror attack in Jerusalem's Old City this evening in which two Israelis were murdered, and two other Israelis - one of them a toddler - were wounded.OMG .@jaketapper .@KhaledAbuToameh .@elihustone The Beeb as bad as AJE @instapundit @DRUDGE_REPORT @EdMorrissey https://t.co/PupoXCVLLE— IsraelMatzav (@IsraelMatzav) October 3, 2015
And the Beeb wasn't the only one as some of the tweets below will show you. They were just the most blatant non-Arab example.
Just like @AJEnglish and @Naharnet .@jaketapper .@KhaledAbuToameh .@elihustone https://t.co/tEgnz92Px4— IsraelMatzav (@IsraelMatzav) October 3, 2015
For once @MaanNewsAgency headline looks unbiased compared to @AJEnglish @Naharnet .@jaketapper .@elihustone https://t.co/ekyxXCGUgh— IsraelMatzav (@IsraelMatzav) October 3, 2015

The biased headlines have almost caused social media to ignore the event itself.How about "Palestinian terrorist murders two Israelis, stabs two others, including toddler." https://t.co/oAuONg65Hu— IsraelMatzav (@IsraelMatzav) October 3, 2015
Rabbi Nehemia Lavi, 41, and Aharon Banita Bennett, 21, have been named as the two Israelis murdered in a stabbing attack on Saturday night, which took place in Jerusalem's Old City and left two others wounded.
Bennett, along with his wife and two-year-old son, were attacked by the terrorist; his wife was seriously wounded and the child lightly wounded.
Rabbi Lavi, a father of seven, is originally from Beit El in Binyamin north of Jerusalem, but has lived in the Old City for the past 23 years. He is a rabbi at Yeshivat Ateret Kohanim.
According to the rabbi's friends, he went down with his gun to try and save those wounded by the Arab terrorist in the attack, but the terrorist stabbed him and took his weapon.
The rabbi's funeral will take place on Sunday at 12 p.m., at the Har Hamenuchot Cemetery in Jerusalem.
Rabbi Lavi volunteered last summer to take an officer's course as part of his IDF reserve duty, so as to become an officer in the army and stay on longer.May God Have mercy on and console the families and may they know of no more sorrow. And may God Avenge their blood.
