Israel suffered its first major terrorist attack of 2017 on Sunday. when a Palestinian Muslim drove a large truck through a crowd of Israeli Defense Force soldiers standing near a bus, killing four and injuring at least 17 others.
However, to hear the liberal-biased mainstream media report the story, one would think the Israeli soldiers died as a result of some unfortunate mechanical mishap, as the truck and not the driver who drove it was seemingly blamed for the horrific incident, according to The Daily Caller.
The New York Times initially ran with a headline that screamed: “At Least 4 Dead and 15 Injured in Jerusalem Truck Attack,” but have since adjusted that headline to more accurately read: “4 Die in Jerusalem Attack as Palestinian Rams Truck Into Soldiers.”

As has come to be expected these days, the watchful eyes of social media did not overlook these not-so-subtle efforts by the liberal media to avoid mentioning in their headlines that an attack by a Palestinian terrorist had just occurred.
The attack, of course, sparked memories of the pre-Christmas terrorist atrocity in Berlin, when a man identified as a Muslim Tunisian migrant drove a truck into a crowd at a Christmas market in Berlin.
While many social media users angrily challenged the media and demanded they “call it what it is,” a probable act of Islamic terrorism, many others resorted to sarcasm to get their point across, remarking that something must be done to address the recent spate of Muslim terrorist using trucks to mow down innocent individuals in separate countries.

It was not a truck attack. As in Nice and Berlin, it was a terror attack.

Unfortunately this is not the first time the mainstream media have sought to downplay or ignore the evil individuals who commit terrible atrocities, instead focusing on the tool those warped subhumans used, like a truck, gun, bomb or knife.
Sadly, it probably also won’t be the last such instance, as many established media outlets have made it quite clear that they have no intention of setting aside their bias and reporting stories without adding their liberal spin to support the prevailing progressive narrative — in this case that Islam is a religion of peace that has no connection whatsoever with evil acts of terrorism.
Please share this on Facebook and Twitter so everyone can see how the mainstream media reported on the evil truck that somehow murdered a number of Israeli soldiers.
