ISRAEL (VINnews) — Rabbi Leo Dee, who tragically lost his wife and two of his daughters (HY”D) in a Pesach terror attack, has blasted CNN’s “terror journalism” and is demanding an apology.
Rabbi Dee’s comments came in response to leftist host Christine Amanpour, who egregiously called the attack a “shootout”, equating both sides, when in reality three innocent victims were tragically targeted and gunned down, just for being Jewish.
According to a tweet by ‘Honest Reporting’, Rabbi Dee said: “This is the perfect example of ‘terror journalism’ where you have moral equivalence between the terrorist and victim.”
He added, “This type of journalism perpetuates the conflict in the Middle East. The real cycle of violence is a comment like this followed by a terrorist atrocity and then more of the same.”
“I demand an immediate apology.”
It's been five days since we called on @amanpour to apologize for saying the Dee family were "killed in a shootout."
Neither she nor @CNN has responded.
Now, Rabbi Leo Dee has joined the demand: it's time for Christiane Amanpour to apologize immediately. https://t.co/8a6z5IRJ4p pic.twitter.com/HzpH4VNFVE

Amanpour has always been an anti-Israel propagandist. This is just the most egregious example. https://t.co/jRZvRbPupR

On Thursday, orthodox Jewish podcast host Ben Shapiro slammed Amanpour. Shapiro tweeted the video and wrote: “Amanpour has always been an anti-Israel propagandist. This is just the most egregious example.”
In April, Rabbi Dee slammed CNN, after reporter Christina Macfarlane equated his family’s murder with Israel’s acts of self-defense against Palestinians.
Old news from last week.
Schumer still hasn’t condemned Tlaibs Jew hate fest event. Neither has any elected Democrat.
It wasn’t a shoot out, it was murder and Amanpour is a slithering liar
Obscene!! Vile Jew hater. Fire her Jew hating rear. I’m sick and tired of being sick and tired by the left is propaganda. I know God to change things in the blink of an eye, and I wish she do it now and strike down every Jew hater and destroy all our enemies right this minute it’s enough already.
