It’s very telling what stories the media focuses on and which it buries out back.
The story of a Stanford Muslim student who claimed that he was hit by a driver who shouted ‘F— you and your people!’ is all over the media despite its vagueness. And I mean the national media, including CNN and CBS News, who have been mining the story for all it’s worth.
Meanwhile, a Muslim woman admitted to trying to attack a school that she thought was Jewish. And the media ignores it.
IMPD officers arrested a woman, who they labeled a “terrorist,” after she drove her car into a building that she thought was a Jewish school.
Ruba Almaghtheh, 34, was arrested on a preliminary charge of criminal recklessness.
Officers said Almaghtheh backed her car into the building while several adults and children were inside.
Almaghtheh told officers she was watching news coverage of the Israel-Hamas war on television and decided to plan an attack on the building because she was offended by the “Hebrew Israelite” symbol on the front of the building.
Police said Almaghtheh passed by the building a couple times and called it the “Israel school.”
IMPD said she made reference to “her people back in Palestine” and told officers, “Yes. I did it on purpose.”
According to the report, Almaghtheh was interviewed by detectives and admitted to committing the “hate crime” during her courtesy phone call with a family member.
The Muslim attacker didn’t know enough to realize that she was attacking a Black Hebrew Israelite institution, a group that hates Jews, rather than a Jewish school. Not that it makes much of a difference because she did attack a school.
With kids inside. Black kids.
Two days in the story only seems to have appeared on the local FOX News and CBS News affiliate in Indianapolis.
Why is the Stanford story a national story while the Indianapolis story is a local crime story?
Outrageous bias and propaganda.
The Islamophobia narrative is important, not least of which because it flips the moral dial into making the perpetrators into the victims, while Muslim attacks have to be buried for the same reason.
