From Amnesty:
The Israeli authorities must immediately remove a new outpost set up yesterday by Israeli settlers in the Nablus district of the occupied West Bank, Amnesty International said today.

The new outpost was set up following the killing of Evyatar Borovsky, a resident of the illegal Israeli settlement of Yitzhar, on Tuesday.

Borovsky, a civilian who was carrying a gun at the time of the attack, was stabbed and killed by a Palestinian man who was wounded and later arrested by Israeli forces.
By any definition, the murder of Evyatar Borovsky was a terror attack.

But look how Amnesty tries to mitigate it:
  • It was a "killing," not a murder
  • He lived in an "illegal settlement" - implying that he was somehow more deserving of death than someone else
  • He was "carrying a gun" - implying that he was a violent person, also more deserving of death than someone else
They also pointedly ignore that the attacker seized Borovsky's gun and shot at others. To Amnesty, this was not a terror attack - it was merely an incident and the evil Jewish settler got what was coming to him, although Amnesty likes to point out that "We deplore all deliberate attacks on civilians, including settlers. But..."

Wow - even settlers? Thanks, Amnesty, for being so generous!

Of course, Amnesty would not mention that this gun-toting illegal usurper of Palestinian land that no Arab ever lived on was a father of five, or a well-loved and respected member of his community, or an actor working to help people overcome emotional trauma. Those facts, you see, are irrelevant. No, the only extraneous facts they mention are those that make him vaguely evil.

No such biased language is associated with Evyatar's murderer.
