There was a terrorist attack in Yerushalayim this morning. Two men were injured.

I just saw this on Jewish news sources that had video footage that you can pretty much only hear arabic loudly.

Why are Jewish news sources using/paying for videos taken by arabs? Do they know what those arabs are saying? Are they cheering on the terrorist? In one of them the guy keeps saying, wallah, wallah. Which can go either way.

It just struck me as off.

With Hashem's help the 2 injured people will have a refuah shelaimah!

If that's the footage we have, why not use it?

Because they are speaking in arabic. Did they vett it with someone who speaks arabic to make sure they aren't cheering the terrorist on?

Is this same video footage being put up on other channels to promote terrorism and recruit more terrorists?

I think it's instructive to hear what they are saying.

BTW, many Jewish Israelis learn Arabic (and certainly al the Arab Israelis do).

It could be instructive.

Maybe I should have been clearer in my OP. I am talking about american Jewish, frum on-line sites. They had video footage up so fast.

So? Your concern is that the Arabic footage will "promote terrorism and recruit more terrorists" -- what is the probability that this will occur if the footage is posted on a frum website?

I am not following your argument.

My concerns are:

1. Do the people on the american Jewish sites have arabic speaking employees so they can understand what is being said?

2. If they are paying for the footage do they make sure the person taking it isn't a terrorist sympathizer? Why should Jewish money support a terrorist sympathizer.

3. Is the same footage being posted or sold to terrorist supporting sites? This just feels yucky to me.

They are saying it was very deliberately planned. His wife and kids are all abroad so they will not feel the fallout of this.
