Earlier this morning a Palestinian woman stabbed an Israeli civilian in the back. Luckily, the victim was armed. He was able to save his own life by shooting his attacker.
The terrorist attack was carried out at Jerusalem’s Lions’ Gate in the Old City. Although some details remain unclear, police say the victim of the stabbing was a 36-year-old man. The perpetrator, an 18-year–old Palestinian woman, lightly wounded the man. Thankfully, the intended victim was armed. He turned around and shot the terrorist trying to kill him.
United Hatzalah paramedic Haim Attias was one of the first people on the scene of the terrorist attack. He explains:
When I arrived to the scene, I saw a man that was stabbed on his upper body at the same site where a previous terrorist attack occurred during Succot.
Although you wouldn’t know it if your news consumption is limited to CNN, the New York Times, the Washington Post and even Fox News, anti-Israeli violence is on the rise. Increasingly more Palestinians are carrying out attacks against random victims, whose only “sins” are their religion (Judaism) and nationality (Israeli). On Saturday, Rabbi Nehemia Lavie and Aharon Benita were stabbed to death by another radical Islamic terrorist. The rabbi’s two-year-old son (2!) was wounded.
That terrorist too was shot: police gunned him down after he opened fire at a crowd of tourists.
In the not-too-distant past these attacks would have been major news at most news outlets. Strangely, that’s no longer the case. If you didn’t know any better, you’d almost think that the mainstream media are determined to bury these attacks out of fear that reporting on them will cause Americans to sympathize with Israeli’s plight. Apparently, that’s such a nightmare scenario to these liberal hacks posing as journalists that they’re not even willing to touch it.
And things are escalating rather quickly in Israel and the Palestinian territories. The 19-year-old Palestinian who carried out Saturday’s murder, Mohannad Shafik Halabi, is a member of Islamic Jihad: a terrorist organization that quickly claimed responsibility for the attack and declared that it marked the start of “the third intifada.”
In other words, Israelis are less safe than, while Western media look the other way, pretending nothing is happening.
