What Shocking Israel News Did The BBC Report Today?

Can you guess what news from Israel the BBC reported today?

Is it...
A. Today a Palestinian admitted he planned to carry out a terror attack at the Cave of Machpelah in Hebron and stab as many Jews as he could; but was caught in possession of a knife before he could do it
B. Today a Palestinian planned to stab Jews in the Old City and was caught in possession of a knife
C. Today a Palestinian in possession of a knife and Molotov cocktail was arrested at a (darned) checkpoint
D. Last night three Palestinians were caught outside the Old City carrying knives with which they wanted to stab an Israeli policeman or soldier
E. Last night two Palestinians at the Cave of Machpelah in Hebron planned to stab Israeli settlers or soldiers and were caught carrying knives
F. On Sunday two Palestinians admitted they planned to carry out a terror attack , when they were caught carrying large knives
The answers is, of course, none of those. Now before you think I have an agenda against the BBC (hah!), it wasn't only them that didn't report any of those incidents. They were only reported in the Israeli media. The reason I singled out the BBC here is because on a news feed on Israel, sandwiched between all the reports of failed terrorist attacks was the BBC article with the headline, "Israel approves four new buildings in East Jerusalem".

It quotes Saeb Erakat as saying that Israel is "talking about peace and negotiations in a way that is totally opposed to the reality on the ground".

But Palestinians' attempts to murder Jews really says "let's talk peace".
