From An 'Objective' State Dept. Report

On violence against Jews in Judea and Samaria:

There were also firebombings and other attacks on civilians in Jerusalem. In April a Palestinian man stabbed to death an Israeli settler at Tapuach Junction, south of Nablus, the first time an Israeli had been killed in the West Bank in 18 months. In September a Palestinian killed an Israeli soldier in Qalqilyah; the attacker and the victim were acquaintances. Although the Palestinian had a well-established criminal record unrelated to terrorism, the incident was listed on Shin Bet’s website as a terrorist act. Also in September an Israeli soldier in Hebron died from a bullet wound; the identity and nationality of the perpetrator remained unknown at year’s end. Shin Bet’s website also classified the October stabbing attack on a nine-year-old girl in the Israeli settlement of Psagot and the November killing of a retired Israeli colonel in the Jordan Valley, both carried out by Palestinians, as terrorist acts, although media reports indicated that both actions were failed robbery attempts

Why not raise a doubt, right?

After all, killing Jews is not normative, or is it?

it is obvious the "occupied territories" section was drafted in a way to bolster Abbas. In the Israel section, there is a blatant falsehood. They claimed there were cars firebombed in the E. Jlem "settlement" neighborhood of Abu Tor. I live in Abu Tor and we are on the '48 side of the line and located in W. Jlem as were the torched cars!
