NZZ and ‘confusing words’ usage: Westjordanland or Cisjordanland? or still Judea and Samaria …?

NZZ (Nr. 23, 29.01.2013, page 6) article is almost good and informative but missing some important points that should have been mentioned.

Deadly violence in West Bank (Tödliche Gewalt in Cisjordanien)

Why i consider this NZZ article as an example of anti-Israel bias:

  • Number of attacks from Palestinian Arabs (almost daily) and a constant threats to population not mentioned
  • Presenting well-known ‘According to Palestinian sources’ story with the same level of credibility as IDF information before investigations.
  • Using only anti-Israel vocabulary like ‘army of occupation’ (while army protects population from terror) and Cisjordan instead of Judea
  • Ignoring positive information on Israel like number of Palestinian Arabs getting treatments in Israel, financial aid, employment, education etc.
  • I treat this article as one in a chain of articles that present Middle East conflict in inadequately.

Sources and facts not mentioned by NZZ as follows

  •  Everyday Terror. Terrorists carried out a number of major attacks against Israel in 2012. But they also targeted Israeli citizens in smaller attacks — just about every day.
