On Thursday, Arutz Sheva ran the following article:
Education Minister Naftali Bennett on Wednesday evening criticized the attack on Border Police officers near the town of Yitzhar, in which a female officer was injured by rocks that were thrown by residents of the town.
“What a disgrace. Extremists injured a Border Police fighter. One of our fighters, a fighter of the State of Israel. Those who act so violently want to destroy our country. Just like what occurred 2,000 years ago. I call on the police to act to the full extent of the law against this violence,” Bennett tweeted.
Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman said, “A barbaric gang of rioters attacked Border Police officers and Civil Administration people with rocks in Yitzhar today and wounded a Border Police officer.”
“We are handling and will deal with this dangerous minority that has grown within us and threatens and harms policemen and IDF soldiers,” he added.
The article included a picture of the IDF solider with blood matted in her hair and down her neck.
That same day, what was the leading article on YWN? About 30 children holding a total of 11 anti-zoinist signs, supervised by 2 adults, in a Satmar protest in a side street in Lakewood: https://www.theyeshivaworld.com/news/general/1562103/a-first-for-lakewood-satmar-stages-anti-zionist-protest-on-busy-road-children-dressed-in-sack-cloth-photos.html
Matter of fact, a quick google search reveals that the only time the word “yithar” was used on this site was the following comment by american_yerushalmi on July 19, 2018 at 12:31 pm:
“I’m against ALL forms of violence, but let’s be even-handed in our reporting. On Wednesday, 7th of Av, settlers in Yitzhar assaulted some Border Police, with one policewoman requiring hospitalization. Three days before Tisha B’av. But, I guess that’s not news that’s relevant for the Chareidi Yeshiva World. A story that’s useful to condemn Chareidim — that’s worthy of reporting. But any other acts of violence, especially something committed by Hashem’s chosen ones — the DaL settlers — that’s not an acceptable news story. Maybe someone thinks there’s a difference between a Chareidi soldier and a chiloni police officer?”
Can anybody honestly tell me they think there’s no agenda here??July 24, 2018 7:19 pm at 7:19 pm #1564003ChongRymerMember
@mw13 – Boy oh boy… Talking about agendas…
First of all… much thank to you. It’s because of people like you that make this place so much fun! So much fodder, in your comment, that I don’t know where to start from.
#1- The word it Yitzhar. Not Yithar.
#2- No need to use a Google search. There is a approximately FIFTY stories with the word “Yitzhar” in it.
#3- YWN covered the story.July 24, 2018 9:00 pm at 9:00 pm #1564051☕️coffee addictParticipant

Yeah, well, what can you do? We stay, even with the bias, because this is the only frum news site that has a coffee room.July 25, 2018 9:03 am at 9:03 am #1564168☕️coffee addictParticipant
