|Ori Ansbacher hy”d|
The horrific murder of Ori Ansbacher by a Palestinian terrorist on Thursday is not, as far as I can tell, being celebrated in Palestinian Arab media.
This is only the second time I have seen what appears to be a little embarrassment about Palestinian terrorism in hundreds of attacks over the past 15 years. (The first was the massacre of the Fogel family.)
This is possibly because the attacker has not yet been associated with any organized terror group, or because of the reports of how Ansbacher was raped.
However, this doesn’t mean that the Arabic media is sympathizing with Ansbacher, either.
Jews who live beyond the Green Line, and soldiers, are considered deserving of being killed by Palestinian media.
The characterization of her as a “settler” and “soldier” is also useful in case a terror group does take credit. In that case the media doesn’t have to backtrack about whether they support the murder or not.
