Mohammed El-Kurd tweeted a video that portrayed a Palestinian attacker as a victim, and refused to update his followers even after the full facts were presented to him.
Instead of centering the actual story – a stabbing attack – the headline centers the attacker, framing her as a victim for facing “eviction” and being “held.” No evidence is provided that the property dispute actually motivated the attack.

The magazine’s one-sided reporting on author Sally Rooney’s decision to decline translation of her most recent work by an Israeli publishing house fails to quote any opponents of the antisemitic BDS movement.
Kai Bird’s very positive new biography of Jimmy Carter unfortunately perpetuates a blatant lie the former president has been telling for more than 40 years – that Israeli PM Menachem Begin broke his Camp David promise of an open-ended settlement freeze. In fact Begin had promised, and delivered, a three month freeze, and Carter knows this.
When Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez withdrew her vote against helping Israel replenish its anti-missile defense system, the New York Times framed the story as a clash between principles and powerful "rabbis."
