On June 18th, Donald Trump, Jr. called out the BBC for publishing misleading headlines about an attack at Damascus Gate. The BBC tweet read, “Three Palestinians killed after deadly stabbing in Jerusalem,” omitting the fact that they were killed only after stabbing a female Israeli police officer to death.
Donald Trump Jr. tweeted: “You mean after they stabbed a female Israeli police officer to death right? This is as close to being misleading as possible.”
Killed in that attack was 23-year-old Border Police officer Hadas Malka, who was killed in an ambush attack by two terrorists who stabbed her in the neck from behind.
The BBC subsequently deleted that Tweet and many Israelis Including PM Benjamin Netanyahu thanked Trump Jr. for taking such a stand.

To which Trump responded that it was a pleasure for him to do.
It’s my pleasure. To me it seemed like a very slanted tweet against Israel given what actually happened. Guess I was right. https://t.co/zUcPQbfzFk

Today, it seemed the BBC did not learn its editorial lesson after a terror attack near the Temple Mount, where three Arab-Israelis opened fire on police officers, killing two and wounding one. BBC referred to it as a mere “gun attack.”
Trump Jr. once again blasted the BBC’s headline in reporting the attack: “Israelis injured in gun attack near Jerusalem holy site.” neglecting to mention anything about it being a terror attack which left two Israeli policemen dead.
Followed up with “The @bbc anti-Israel bias is so flagrant,” Trump tweeted.

Trump’s tweets have come under much scrutiny and are under a microscope lately after he tweeted out the email chain that led to his meeting with a Russian lawyer. So all eyes are on his standing up for Israel.
GOD BLESS ISRAEL AND THE JEWISH PEOPLE. Sickening what BBC is doing. Aljazeera is pure EVIL.🇮🇱🇺🇸

As well as a lot of hate from anti-Israel detractors, many of which we can not show because of the crude language.
