The student newspaper at notoriously liberal Harvard University, The Crimson, unleashed a scathing critique of world leaders following the string of deadly and gruesome terrorist attacks in Jerusalem last week.
Women, children, innocent bystanders were hit by cars, hacked with butcher knives and shot by Palestinian terrorists, yet not a word was said.
The point was clear, the silence that followed the attacks was deafening and illustrated just how afraid world leaders are to calling out the Palestinian authorities for motivating these attacks.
Rachel Huebner ’18 who penned the piece said:
“Instead of legitimately addressing the terrorism crisis, a recent BBC headline reads: “Palestinian shot dead after Jerusalem attack kills two;” the Palestinian had just slashed two men to death. The headline of a Monday Wall Street Journal article stated: “Israeli Police Fatally Shoot Two Palestinian Teen Attackers, Injure Two Others;” these terrorists stabbed Israeli civilians and officers with knives. These deceiving headlines might have you mistakenly believe that Israelis are the perpetrators.”
From the Harvard Crimson:
The silence is deafening.
Two weeks ago, Palestinian terrorists shot two parents to death as they were driving home with their four children in the backseat of their car. Two days later, in the Old City of Jerusalem, a Palestinian stabbed two Israelis to death. As the wife of one of the victims lay on the ground slashed and crying for help, Arab passersby spat on her and laughed. Her two-year old was beside her, also stabbed by the terrorist. A few hours later, a terrorist in Jerusalem stabbed a 15-year-old boy.
Last week in Israel, hundreds of terrorist attacks occurred around the country. More than a dozen people were injured in stabbing attacks. In one attack, a Palestinian mob pelted an Israeli woman’s car with stones and then attempted to drag her out—presumably to abduct or to murder her. In another attack, a terrorist stabbed a soldier and stole his rifle, and then barged into the home of a young woman and attempted to stab her.
