Families of Israeli Arabs shot dead on a bus in Galilee are not considered terrorism victims because their killer was JewishIf they were victims of terrorism then their dependants could receive pensions as a result of their love ones' deaths. An Arab member of the Israeli parliament is seeking an amendment to the law which at present states that "only attacks by enemies of Israel are considered terrorism." Now there's a dilemma for Israel. If they change the law to include the victims of Jewish terrorists, how will they distinguish between Jewish terrorists and Israeli soldiers?
