Donald Trump Jr. Takes To Twitter Over Israel Terror Attack

Donald Trump Jr. led a Twitter campaign to push the BBC to change a headline on a story about a weekend terror attack in Israel, blasting the venerable news organization for what he and other Israel advocates said was bias.

After the Friday night terror attack, which claimed the lives of an Israeli policewoman and those of the three Palestinian assailants, the BBC headlined a story: “Three Palestinians killed after deadly stabbing in Jerusalem.”

The headline was slammed by political actors in both Israel and the United States as misleading and unfair - implying that the Palestinian attackers were victims, rather than perpetrators.

The BBC later apologized, deleted a tweet in which had promoted the story and wrote a new one that was seen as more accurate.
