Crucial information was concealed about alleged "victims" of what the MSM calls "settlers"

Here's something the UN, for example is distorting as they do everything possible to demonize all Jews living in Judea/Samaria:
But even OCHA's partial data raises serious questions. Here's where the UN's propensity for burying critical information again comes into play.

Significantly, the tenth paragraph of "Definitions and clarifications," appearing under the selectively revealed data from the database, states:

"Incidents involving Israeli settlers: includes attacks and alleged attacks by Israeli settlers, as well as incidents involving access prevention, and clashes following the entry of Israeli settlers into Palestinian communities. It also includes Palestinians killed or injured during attacks or alleged attacks they perpetrated against Israeli settlers."

In other words, omitted in the alarmist press release about alleged rising settler violence is the fact that the supposed victims who paid the ultimate price of settler attacks – "four Palestinians were killed by settlers this year" – were possibly the assailants.
Yet most mainstream press sources chose predictably to go with the falsehood angle, branding only Jews as villains.
CNN also fell for the press release's falsehood, originally stating: "Four Palestinians have been killed in settler violence, OCHA says." Following CAMERA's communication with CNN pointing out that OCHA itself acknowledges that its figures include Palestinians killed as they carried out attacks, editors slightly amended the text to state: "According to the UN organization's database of incidents, at least three Palestinians were shot dead by settlers in 2021." In addition, a note appended to the bottom of the article now states: "The original article has been updated with new information about violent attacks in the West Bank." While CNN's new language is technically correct, it remains grossly misleading as it still fails to note that even according to OCHA, the data includes cases in which settlers killed Palestinian assailants in self-defense.
Alas, that's no shock. CNN remains as anti-Israeli as ever before. The left-wing B'Tselem movement, interestingly, was willing to provide data confirming the Muslims who were casualties were villains:
B'Tselem's database, updated through Nov. 30, 2021 – in other words, it covers a longer period than the Nov. 10 UN press release – enables researchers to view detailed information on Palestinians killed by Israeli civilians in the West Bank. Significantly, over this period, B'Tselem lists two – not four – Palestinian casualties.

They are:

"Khaled Maher Saleh Nofal

"33 years old resident of Ras Karkar, Ramallah and al-Bira District, killed on February 5, 2021, in Sde Ephraim farm, Ramallah and al-Bira District, live ammunition. Additional information: … Fatally shot in the head and back by a settler and a settlement outpost security guard in circumstances unknown to B'Tselem. According to the military, he was unarmed. Israel held his body until 26 March 2021, when it was returned to his family.

"Ahed 'Abd a-Rahman Mahmoud Ekhlil

25 years old resident of Beit Ummar, Hebron District, killed on January 5, 2021, in Gush Etzion, Bethlehem District, live ammunition. Additional information: Wounded by a settlement security coordinator's gunfire at Gush Etzion junction after, according to the military, he had thrown a knife during suspect apprehension procedure. Succumbed to his wounds shortly afterward. Israel is holding his body."

Thus, B'Tselem's data points to two Palestinian assailants killed in 2021 – one was trying to break into a settler's home, the other had attempted to stab the settlement security coordinator – not four victims of settler violence.
How about that. These are not men to feel sorry for. Certainly not if they were employing murderous force on anybody. When will CNN for one ever just quit the journalism business for a change? Come to think of it, when will the UN's members just quit their business altogether, seeing as they're unqualified?
