In the day’s most violent attack, a 21 year-old male jihadi wounded 12 and killed Force before going on to meet his 72 virgins in Hell.
“Video showed a man running down a road and lunging at someone through a car window while being chased.
The attack caused panic, and one witness told Israeli television he hit the assailant with his guitar, with a hole visible in the wood of his instrument.
Police said the attacker wounded a number of people in the Jaffa port area, a tourist zone of Israel’s commercial capital, before going on toward a restaurant and stabbing others.
“Violence in Israel and the Palestinian territories since October has killed 184 Palestinians and 28 Israelis…
The number of attacks had diminished recently, but there were four separate assaults Tuesday.
Two occurred in Jerusalem, including one that saw a Palestinian shoot and seriously wound two Israeli police officers before being shot dead.
Earlier, a Palestinian woman attempted to stab Israeli police forces in Jerusalem’s Old City before being shot dead.
In the badass silver-lining from today’s attacks, an Orthodox Jewish man fought back and killed his attacker with the attacker’s own knife, despite having to remove the knife from his neck. From TimesOfIsrael:
The Palestinian assailant had followed (Yonatan)Azarihab, who was collecting money for charity, into a wine shop on the central city’s Baron Hirsch Street and began stabbing him “multiple times” in the upper body in a “frenzied attack,” police said.
At one point, Azarihab managed to break away and fled the store, while the owner of the store hit the attacker and tried to subdue him, police said. The victim then returned to the store, pulled the knife out of his own neck, and stabbed his attacker.
Initial reports had said the stabbing may have occurred during an altercation; however, the incident was later confirmed by police as a terror attack.
Definitely the feel-good story of an otherwise dark day.
In an unrelated tragedy, the Western media continues to engage in behavior that ranges from moral relativism to outright anti-Israeli bias. The headline above from the International Business Times is truly despicable. Shame on author Prianka Mogul and the entire Editorial Board of the IBT. You are complicit in the murder of innocent civilians. You are a disgrace to journalism. The very country you condemn is the only bastion of freedom of speech, freedom of religion, womens’ rights, LGBT rights, and the rule of law in a region filled with people and regimes to which such values are anathema.
