If demonize means to try to make someone or a group of people seem as if they are evil, as the Cambridge Free says, can a murderer be demonized?
To help readers understand the term, the dictionary provides the following as an example of its usage: The Nazis used racist propaganda in an attempt to demonize the Jews.
But can the Nazi killer himself be demonized? What about the cold-blooded murderer of an elderly Holocaust survivor?
More specifically, can Muqdad Salah, the Palestinian who murdered the sleeping 72-year-old Holocaust survivor Israel Tenenbaum, and other convicted Palestinian killers of innocent Israeli civilians, young and old, be [d]emonized as terrorists by Israelis?
