The fact that the killer was a Muslim terrorist seemed up for debate when the media first reported on the attack. This is what the Daily Mail out of Britain first reported:
"It is not immediately clear what motivated the shooting, which initial reports say happened at a downtown bar on the city’s Dizengoff Street."
Now, the article at the Daily Mail has been scrubbed and updated here.
Even though every single editor at the Daily Mail knew this was an act of Islamic terror the moment it occurred, they STILL tried to cover that up initially. When the facts started to flood in, then they quickly tried to cover their asses. This happens in England, it happens in all of Europe and yes, it happens here in America. A concerted effort to protect Islam, its followers and its jihadis is on display each and every day in every form of the media. At what point does the media pay the price for its lies?
Here's video of the attack in Tel Aviv:
Was Tel Aviv shooting first ISIS terror attack on Israel?
Police are investigating if a shooting which left two dead in a bar in Israel was the first terror attack inspired by ISIS on the country as officers hunt the gunman.
The gunman entered a grocery store in central Tel Aviv, pulled out a gun and opened fire on customers at a nearby restaurant, leaving two dead and at least seven others seriously wounded.
The suspect is believed to be a 29-year-old Arab Israeli man, possibly from Wadi Ara in the district of Haifa. His father identified him after watching the CCTV footage and contacted the police.
Yesterday a tweet was posted warning of an attack on the street in Tel Aviv. The tweet claimed to be representing ISIS although the jihadi group have not claimed official responsibility for the attack.
The attack took place at a downtown bar Simta on the city's Dizengoff Street with witnesses describing how the shooter smiles as he sprayed bullets into the packed bar.
The first victim has been named as 26-year-old Alon Bekel, manager of the bar where the attack occurred.
The Israeli police are hunting for the lone gunmen, who was reportedly identified by his father after watching the CCTV footage.
The gunman's weapon was later found dumped inside a green rubbish bin after he fled the scene.
'All possible angles are being investigated.Large-scale police forces are conducting searches for him, police spokeswoman Luba Samri said.
The shooting comes amid a recent wave of Palestinian attacks on Israelis and just days after ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi threatened the Jewish state with violence.
Nati Shakked, owner of the Simta bar on Dizengoff Street, which was hit by gunfire, said the assailant had waited on a bench outside before taking a machine-gun out of a bag and 'shooting in every direction'.
Witnesses say the man appeared to be in his mid-to-late 20s and wore protective eyeglasses and a windbreaker, while browsing dried fruit at a delicatessen before 'shooting wildly'.
The attack comes as Israelis relaxed before sundown and the beginning of Shabbat, the holiest day of the week. An eyewitness being treated for shock told the media that several of the people in the bar were there to celebrate a birthday.
It is thought that the attack was carried out by a single gunman who reportedly used an Italian made sub-machine gun, which he took from his backpack before starting the attack.
