Israel left off list of ‘underreported’ terrorist acts

(JTA) – No attacks in Israel were included on a list of 78 “underreported” terrorist attacks released by the White House. The list, which includes attacks around the world from September 2014 to December 2016, was released Feb. 6 after President Donald Trump spoke of the dangers of “radical Islamic terrorists” and said the media often did not want to report on terror attacks.

Attacks in Israel were omitted from the list, though over 350 terrorist attacks – including stabbings, shootings, vehicular ramming attacks and a bus bombing – have taken place since Sept. 13, 2015, according to an Israeli Foreign Ministry report.

Daniel Shapiro, the former U.S. ambassador to Israel, wrote on Twitter that the omission of attacks in Israel “is really hard to explain,” adding that several attacks “were genuinely underreported.”
