Covering the anti-gay shootings and killings in Tel Aviv, NPR's hourly news bulletin this Sunday morning stated the following:
(Dave Pignanelli): "Officials say they believe it is the worst hate crime in in Israel in decades."(Linda Gradstein): "The shooting has shocked many in Israel where hate crimes are almost unknown."
Worst hate crime in decades? Hate crimes almost unknown? Ignoring the bitter irony of "hate crimes almost unknown" in a state that has a general policy of state run hate crimes against non-citizens in territory it controls - can one find evidence of deadly attacks by individual Israelis against people based solely on race, religion, etc?
