Here’s a story which is on the web if you know enough to look for it but I’ve spoken to no one who has seen this story on television. One would think that it would be of topical interest considering the situation in Palestine/Israel and as an echo of the recent events in Benghazi.
Note that the attack was undertaken by an Israeli who is “not an Arab.” If the attacker had been Arab or Persian you can be quite sure that the story would have run for at least 24 hours on American television news programs.
Axe attack at US embassy in Tel Aviv: Israeli police
“A suspect came to the US embassy at 11:00 am (0900 GMT) with a knife and an axe and attacked a security guard,” spokeswoman Luba Samri told AFP, saying the guard was injured in the leg, prompting his colleagues to open fire.
“Other security guards fired shots at him,” she said.
“The attacker was not hurt,” Samri said, adding that the assailant, who had been arrested, was “not an Arab.”
She did not give further details on his identity but said he was from the town of Bat Yam, just south of Tel Aviv
