Australia’s B’nai B’rith Anti-Defamation Commission has criticised Sydney’s The Daily Telegraph for failing to include terrorist attacks against Israelis in its list of global terrorism.

Dr. Abramovich, Chairman of the ADC, issued the following statement: “It’s hard to understand why The Daily Telegraph chose to glaringly exclude Israeli victims from its list.

One wonders if Israeli lives lost in such reprehensible assaults are not considered newsworthy or if the paper deems Palestinians terrorism as somewhat different to the others it listed.

Given that vehicular attacks have targeted and claimed the lives of many Israelis, and that over the last year dozens of Israelis have been murdered, it’s disappointing that the Daily Telegraph did see it fit to cite such grotesque incidents when reporting about the Nice attack and similar abominable incidents around the world. We hope that this regrettable practice does not occur in the future.”
