An attack in the Middle east that the BBC seem not to have bothered reporting.

The BBC faithfully and gleefully report any attack by Israelis on poor Palestinians, they are less interested in attacks by Arabs on Israeli Jews. Al Jazeera reports what happened when some Israeli Jews visited an historic site in Jordan:
'Salem Jeradat - who owns a grocery in the town - was surprised Sunday afternoon by a delegation of Jewish men and women who wear wearing the clothing of religious Jews, which led him to throw his shoes at them.

"Then the people of the town immediately came to the group and they threw shoes and stones, and they kicked them out of town immediately." Jeradat continued, "The people of Jordan do not accept the Jews entering their homeland, and the Wadi Araba treaty between Jordan and the Zionist entity does not represent us."

The idea is that those who occupy Palestine and desecrate holy places should not be allowed to roam freely in Jordan. Citizens of the town gathered in the evening in a grocery and committed themselves to prevent Jews from returning to their town.'
Note that the people of the Jordanian town were not upset by or complaining about the presence of Israelis, the problem was that the visitors were Jewish. Once again, the Muslims don't hate Jews because of Israel, they hate Israel because of Jews. As for the BBC,  why no coverage of this story?
