Update: terror suspect arrested

In an update to our post in December of last year, a joint operation of the IDF, Israeli border police, and  Israel Security Agency Shin Bet has resulted in the arrest of an Arab man suspected of stabbing a 22 year-old woman from Karnei Shomron near Bethlehem.

In our previous commentary, we noted how Reuters correspondent Allyn Fisher-Ilan sought to apologize for the attack by referring to the victim as a "settler woman" in the "occupied West Bank".  Fisher-Ilan also censored the official Israeli characterization of the perpetrator as a terrorist by substituting the word "militant" and described the attack as occurring "after a mosque was vandalised elsewhere in the West Bank".  We noted that the stabbing actually occurred three days following the act of vandalism.
