Australia’s B’nai B’rith Anti-Defamation Commission has strongly condemned this week’s terrorist attack on a bus line in Tel Aviv by a Palestinian man from the West Bank in which 13 Israelis passengers were injured.

Four of the victims are reportedly in serious condition.
Dr. Dvir Abramovich, Chairman of the B’nai B’rith Anti-Defamation Commission issued the following statement:

“I am shocked and distressed by today’s cowardly attack in Tel Aviv in which, once again, innocent Israeli blood has been spilled. Our thoughts and prayers are with the wounded and we wish them a speedy recovery.  Today’s assault, in the heart of Israel, makes it clear that we have not seen the end of the spate of  terrorist violence by Palestinians that has claimed many lives. It is important to realise that this attack did not happen in a vacuum.   This horrific event is another timely reminder that the Palestinian Authority, under President Mahmoud Abbas, continues to celebrate and glorify terrorists as martyrs and this stabbing is directly related to the disturbing climate  of escalating anti-Jewish incitement and demonization of Israel promoted by Abbas and the Palestinian media.  After the massacres in Paris, it is the duty of all civilised nations to not only fight together against the perpetrators of such crimes that threaten us all, but to target those who inspire and support such atrocities. Therefore,  it is imperative  that the Australian government and the international community condemn this heinous act and demand that President Abbas abandon his dangerous and inflammatory rhetoric and recommit to non-violence and to a peaceful resolution of the  Israeli-Palestinian conflict”

    This latest attack in Tel Aviv didn’t get much Australian news coverage. We are still tacking the Lindt cafe siege onto every terrorist act that takes place; there’s no room for much attention to what happens in Israel if it affects Jewish Israelis. I mean no disrespect to the Sydney siege and its aftermath – it’s singular in its own horror, just doesn’t need dramatising or continual reliving while others further down the track are suffering their effects of terrorism. There’s something distasteful in the way the media are choosing to report it now, using it inappropriately.
