What the Media Missed on Itamar

Murdering Babies is "Permissible" When They're Palestinian

By ALISON WEIR

US media have been widely and repeatedly 
reporting on the awful March 11 murder of three 
small Israeli children and their parents. While 
no one yet knows who committed this act, reports 
presume that the murderers were Palestinian, and 
for this reason the incident is receiving major 
attention. Various heads of state, including 
President Obama, have condemned it.

If it turns out that the murderer or murderers 
were Israeli, as some previously presumed 
“terrorists” have turned out to be, or a foreign 
worker who had previously threatened the family 
over unpaid wages, as some reports from the area 
suggest, it is likely that coverage of the 
incident will quickly vanish from U.S. headlines.

For now, however, American news reports continue 
to provide excruciating details about the 
atrocity. Given the amount of reportage, it is 
surprising how much significant information is omitted.

For example, none of these reports mention that 
the location of the murders, Itamar (near 
Nablus), is an illegal Jewish-only settlement on 
stolen Palestinian land in the midst of refugees 
whom Israel pushed off their ancestral land 
through massacres and ruthless military actions.

Nor do reports mention the frequency with which 
Israeli settlers beat, occasionally torture, and 
sometimes murder Palestinians of all ages, burn 
their crops, and hack down their groves of olive 
trees, the livelihood of many Palestinian 
villagers; hundreds, at least, of these trees, 
have been destroyed by rampaging Israeli settlers.

Religious extremism

Even lengthy articles on the tragic incident fail 
to mention the extremely relevant and chillingly 
ironic fact that Itamar was founded and is 
largely populated by fanatic Jewish extremists, 
many of whom believe that the killing of 
non-Jewish infants is religiously permitted, and 
sometimes mandated, as discussed in a 
best-selling book “The King’s Torah,” which was 
written by authors from the area and endorsed by 
numerous rabbis and religious schools (but opposed by most Israelis).

In their elaborate descriptions of the murder 
scene, U.S. articles neglect to mention that the 
building next door is the house of Chabad 
Lubavitch emissaries, a Hassidic movement in 
Orthodox Judaism, and features a photo of the 
late Lubavitcher Rebbe Rabbi Menachem Mendel 
Schneerson, known for his astoundingly supremacist teachings.

Schneerson is widely revered by such settlers 
(and his followers in the U.S.); many believed 
him to have been the messiah. In their book 
“Jewish Fundamentalism in Israel,” professors 
Israel Shahak and Norton Mezvinsky quote 
Schneerson’s teachings about the differences between Jews and non-Jews:

“
 we do not have a case of profound change in 
which a person is merely on a superior level. 
Rather, we have a case of ‘let us differentiate’ 
between totally different species. This is what 
needs to be said about the body: the body of a 
Jewish person is of a totally different quality 
from the body of [members] of all nations of the 
world...A non-Jew’s entire reality is only 
vanity
The entire creation [of a non-Jew] exists 
only for the sake of the Jews...”

Which children matter?

Finally, news reports on the abhorrent Itamar 
murders fail to mention the frequent, tragic, and 
equally abhorrent killing of massive numbers of 
Palestinian children by Israelis.

For example, the Los Angeles Times reported that 
the Itamar incident was “the deadliest such 
attack against Jewish settlers in the area since 
2002,” but didn’t bother to report that there 
have been numerous deadly attacks on Palestinians 
in the area in the intervening years, that dozens 
of Palestinian minors have been killed, many more 
injured and maimed, and even more Palestinian 
mothers, fathers, and grandparents killed.

This viewpoint is typical of U.S. media. 
Statistical studies show that primetime network 
news shows report on Israeli children’s deaths at 
rates up to 14 times greater than they report on 
Palestinian children’s deaths; regional 
newspapers report Israeli deaths at even more disproportionate rates.

Palestinian deaths are therefore often virtually 
invisible to American news consumers, even though 
they occurred first and are far greater in number.

In the round of violence that began in fall 2000, 
over 90 Palestinian children were killed before a 
single Israeli child; in total, approximately 
1,500 Palestinian children have been killed by 
Israelis, and approximately 130 Israeli children 
have been killed by Palestinians during this period.

Since American media, in stark contrast to 
coverage of the Itamar victims, so rarely report 
on Palestinian victims and their weeping 
families, or provide details of their grisly 
deaths, at the end of this article is a partial 
list of these young, largely disappeared victims.

While this very incomplete list does little to 
balance the moving, detailed reporting on Israeli 
children’s deaths found in U.S. news media, and 
completely ignores the even greater number of 
children grieving for parents killed by Israeli 
forces, publishing it here at least provides the 
names of Palestinian victims, a rarity in American media coverage.

A few years ago an Israeli army officer emptied, 
at close range, the entire magazine of his 
automatic rifle into a 13-year-old Palestinian 
girl. Afterward he said he would have done the 
same even if she had been three years old. 
Because so many of his underlings reported this 
particular incident, he was eventually tried in 
an Israeli military court – but on minor 
offenses, not murder. He was acquitted of all charges.

It is hard to imagine the feelings of Americans 
if these were our children and if we were 
suffering this degree of unbearable loss. The 
population in the Palestinian Territories is less 
than 1/90th the population of the U.S.; there is 
hardly a Palestinian family that has not experienced tragedy.

Because Israel partisans consistently screen out 
the mass of significant information on this 
issue, and other editors, perhaps through 
ignorance, negligence, and/or timidity, go along, 
Americans receive the kind of highly filtered, 
lying-through-omission “journalism” that is so 
effectively creating fear, hatred, and ignorance 
of Palestinians, Arabs, and Muslims – and that 
perpetuates the uniquely massive flow of American 
money to Israel, currently over $8 million per 
day. Israel, with a population of seven million, 
is reportedly about to ask for an additional $20 billion.

Regarding the as-yet unsolved murder of three 
children in Itamar, President Obama pronounced: 
“There is no justification and there can be 
neither excuse nor forgiveness for the murder of 
children.  I expect a similar condemnation, and I 
demand a similar condemnation, from the Palestinian Authority.”

Perhaps someday President Obama will have the 
integrity – and the courage – to make the same 
pronouncement about the murders of Palestinian 
children, and address it to the Israeli government.



A partial list of Palestinian Children Killed by Israelis

The following information is taken from 
<http://www.rememberthesechildren.org/remember2000.htm>“Remember 
These Children,” [ which works to document all 
Israeli and Palestinian children who have been 
killed, in the belief, sadly not shared by the 
U.S. media, that all of these children matter.

In the list below, “IDF” stands for Israeli 
Defense Forces, an offensive, occupying force; 
“Incursion” refers to an invasion of Palestinian 
land by Israeli military forces.  To reiterate: 
this is a partial list of children mostly 13 and 
under of the approximately 1,500 Palestinian 
minors killed by Israeli forces in the past 11 
years; during the same period Palestinians killed about 130 Israeli minors.
