Post Fails To Report Double Terrorist Bombing Thwarted In Jerusalem This Week

Wednesday's Example of Media Bias   —   Posted on June 8, 2005

Israeli police authorities on Wednesday uncovered and arrested a group of Palestinian terrorists who were planning a double suicide bombing in Jerusalem this week. Five Islamic Jihad terrorists were arrested earlier in the week, and now the two suicide bombers themselves have been arrested. The bomb packs that were to be used were seized and detonated. The terrorists made multiple unsuccessful attempts to infiltrate Israel from the West Bank. The bombings were planned for a synagogue, cafe or bus in Jerusalem City Center and another in the Ramot neighborhood.

This apparently is not newsworthy to the Post, even though it prides itself on having two correspondents on the ground in Israel. The NY Times reported this story.
