Islamist drives truck through crowd of Israeli soldiers, killing 4

 

A Palestinian jihadi drove his lorry through a gathered group of Israeli soldiers in Jerusalem Sunday, killing 4 and injuring 10 others.

From CNN:

Israeli police shot and killed the attack suspect, whom they identified as 28-year-old Fadi Qunbar. Police have also arrested nine other suspects, including five of Qunbar’s family members.
Speaking from the scene of the attack, on a promenade overlooking the walled Old City of Jerusalem, Netanyahu said authorities have identified the terrorist and “all signs show he is a supporter of the Islamic State.”

While Netanyahu is attributing the attack to ISIS, another Islamist terror group – Hamas, has praised the attacker in a Twitter statement:
“We bless the courageous and heroic truck operation in Jerusalem,” the group tweeted. “It comes within the context of the normal response to the crimes of the Israeli occupation.”
Hamas’ goal is the creation of an Islamic fundamentalist Palestinian state and they insist that Israel is an occupying power and must be destroyed.
Virtually any tool can be used to kill, the object of choice is of secondary importance. Likewise, which specific organization is responsible is of less importance than the fact that Islamism encourages attacks on the infidel, using whatever tool is at hand.
