On Thursday, traditional Jewish podcast presenter Ben Shapiro attacked CNN’s Christiane Amanpour, who incorrectly stated that three members of the Dee family (HY” D) were killed in a “shootout.”
Islamic terrorists shot and killed Lucy Dee and her children Maia and Rina while traveling in their car on Pesach.
In reaction, Shapiro tweeted the video and wrote: “Amanpour has always been an anti-Israel propagandist. This is only the most extreme example.”
Shapiro wasn’t the only one who took issue with the remarks; the website “Honest Reporting” also tweeted: “According to @CNN’s Christiane Amanpour, three members of the Dee family “were killed in a shootout.”
“In a firefight, both sides engage in armed combat. Palestinian terrorists opened fire on a mother and her two daughters at close range. @amanpour, you owe an apology to a troubled family.
In his opening remarks during an interview with Palestinian Prime Minister Mohammad Shtayyeh on April 10, Amanpour said the following:
A young Palestinian child, age 15, was killed by Israeli security forces after being shot by them.
Additionally, we have the mother of two Israeli-British sisters. The mother passed away due to her injuries after being slain in a shootout.
Even though the episode aired a month ago, the tape appeared to be widely circulated on social media for the first time on Thursday of this week.
There hasn’t been any word of a CNN or Amanpour apologies or retractions in the weeks since the clip aired.
Amanpour has always been an anti-Israel propagandist. This is just the most egregious example. https://t.co/jRZvRbPupR
