BBC Bias?

I had barely heard news of the latest terrorist attack in Jerusalem, and I immediately picked up my mobile phone to check the latest news online. The BBC Website at the time of going to 'press' bears this headline.

As far as I aware, this was a bone fide attack. The use of "scare quotes" really bothers me; why on earth should the BBC be so wary of calling a terrorist attack an attack? For crying out loud!

Make your own minds up.
