NUS: Israelis are never killed by ‘terrorists’ and anti-Semitism not a problem

In 1972 Palestinian terror outfit Black September murdered 11 Israel athletes at the Munich Olympics.

Ilana Romano says her husband Yossef was tied up and castrated:

“What they did is that they cut off his genitals through his underwear and abused him. Can you imagine the nine others sitting around tied up? They watched this.”

She wants us to know what happened to the athletes before and after they were murdered.

But the Daily Mirror has a version of the story that should excite some readers:

The Mirror calls the murdered Israelis the “terrorists”.

The story has now been altered to read:

One of the nine Israeli athletes murdered by Palestinian militant group Black September was castrated and others were tortured during a 20 hour ordeal.

As you marvel at that error of fact, research and subbing (let’s be generous), the National Union of Students says that Israelis cannot be the victims of terror.

The Jewish News reports:

The National Union of Students has been urged to apologise over the “deliberate omission” of Israel from a list of countries suffering recent terror attacks.

An NUS statement read at its National Executive Committee meeting last night highlighted attacks over the past year by “paramilitary organisations” in Nigeria, Lebanon, Turkey, Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Kenya, Palestine, and Mali.

“Those who have perpetrated these attacks, have targeted people of all faiths, of all backgrounds and of all identities. Since the attacks, we have seen an increase in retributions places on Muslim communities here in the UK and around the world. We restate the NUS’ commitment to fighting Islamophobia.

“We mourn the victims of the attacks and stand in solidarity with the families and friends o al those affected…and stand in solidarity with citizens across the world who are suffering at the hands of violence and discrimination.”

Islamophobia gets more coverage and sympathy than the murder of Israelis. You might wonder why the NUS is not committed to fighting anti-Semitism, which in light of the attack on a Paris delicatessen and the Jewish-owned theatre is very real.
