The Huffington Post is more than willing to cover the news of Palestinian men approaching the Gaza border and coming under fire for doing so, but an Israeli nine-year-old girl almost murdered in her back yard? Nah.
A 9-year-old Israeli girl was injured Saturday night in a suspected terrorist attack at the West Bank settlement of Psagot, outside Ramallah. The girl, who was playing in the yard outside her home, said she was shot by a gunman at very close range; confusingly, doctors said later that they had not established whether her wounds were caused by a shooting or a stabbing.The girl, who did not lose consciousness, was reported in light-to-moderate condition by doctors at Jerusalem’s Shaare Zedek medical center. It was “not clear” whether she had been shot or stabbed, said Dr. Danny Fink. Security sources said they believed the incident was a nationalist terrorist attack, but were not ruling out other unspecified possibilities.This attack happened Saturday night and this blog post is published the following Monday morning. The Huffington Post, if it ever covers the story, is delaying it.
