#JeSuisCouteau? 13 Stabbed in Tel Aviv Knife Attack.


In the wake of this week’s Tel Aviv knife attack, the hashtag #JeSuisCouteau or “I am Knife” has begun to trend.

A number of Twitter hashtags have popped up in the wake of the Charlie Hebdo attack. The most notable is #JeSuisCharlie, or “I am Charlie” for all those worldwide who stand in solidarity with free expression and liberal values against Islamofascist goons. Also trending is #JeSuisAhmed, mainly by Muslims who seek to identify with the slain French policeman who gave his life to protect speech that must have offended him personally. Of course there are also pathetic wastes of life who revel in this Islamist violence, and cheer on these psychopaths whenever they succeed in unleashing their carnage.

It is no different in the latest Knife Intifada attack in Israel, this time in Tel Aviv. 13 people were injured, 4 seriously. While the details of the attack are horrific in and of themselves, the fact that people celebrate this evil turns my stomach. Throughout the world, the cancer of Islamism exposes itself once again in the trending hashtag “I am Knife” #JeSuisCouteau.

Video NSFW – and sorry about the horrible background music.

from YNet.com:

At roughly 7:15 am, Hamza Muhammed Hassan Matrouk, a 22-year-old from the West Bank town of Tul Karem, boarded Dan bus number 40 on Begin Road in Tel Aviv, close to Beit Maariv Bridge, and stabbed the driver and more than a dozen passengers before fleeing the scene. He was quickly tracked down by Israel Prison Service officers present in the area, shot and apprehended.

Of the wounded, four are in serious condition, three sustained moderate wounds and the rest were lightly hurt. People were also being treated for shock after the attack

Hamas has welcomed the attack as an “heroic and courageous act.”

During questioning, Matrouk said he committed the attack because of Operation Protective Edge and events at the Temple Mount. He also said hew as motivated by watching radical Islamic material that spoke of “reaching paradise”.

Hamas was not alone in celebrating this evil. From DailyMailUK:

A hashtag that states ‘I am knife’ has begun trending on Twitter as hardline users take to social media to heap praise a Palestinian man who stabbed 11 people on a bus in Tel Aviv.

The messages are an attempt to reappropriate the hashtag of solidarity – #JeSuisCharlie – which swept the world in the wake of the terrorist massacre at the Charlie Hebdo magazine offices.

However, the tweets – often accompanied by illustrations which depict the Palestinian flag and a bloody knife – are being posted in support of the stabber, who was shot by a prison officer after injuring 11 people in a brutal act of violence.


Another piece of Islamist garbage.

Obviously, such freedom of expression, while vile, is something that the cartoonists of Charlie Hebdo died to protect. The irony is thick in that supporters of the killers are celebrating with illustrated expression.


  1. As a Jew, I appreciate your stance on the topic and your support and IMO common sense on the issue as a whole. What baffles my mind even more is how Israel while having a great military in the IDF has no gun rights available to the average citizen.
    While having access to firearms certainly doesn’t stop this type of attack…instead of 13 stabbed it could have been 5 with the terrorist shot injured or dead.

    I have several friends and family over there who emigrated from the states and they couldn’t believe the lack of ability for an individual to defend themselves, especially considering the circumstances in which they live.

    Furthermore, It makes my brain hurt to know that most of my jewish friends and family that live in the US are against guns and knives or really any type of weapon.

    1. They are loosening restrictions on handgun carry, though not fast enough for the victims in these attacks.

      Robert Farago has commented considerably about jews having an obligation to arm themselves. I don’t know if you are familiar, but Jews for the Preservation of Firearms ownership (http://jpfo.org/), but they are at the forefront of the issue.

      I am not Jewish, but I have friends who have served with the IDF. I agree with Netanyahu’s assertion that Israel is one of the front lines in the fight against Islamism. Hamas is just the “Palestinian” branch of the Muslim Brotherhood, who are just Al Queda with better PR. It is all part of the same twisted continuum.

    2. My support for Israel aside, the subject of “Politically Motivated Knife-attacks” is certainly in the TTAK wheelhouse.

      By the way, I am still waiting for someone to tweet that they want a sticker to @knifetruth. Someone…?

  2. I’ve seen Farago’s writing in the topic and I fully endorse his message! Although knowing the people I know the only way for them to be convinced would be for something dramatic to happen to them or their families…oh wait…that already did (holocaust,pogroms, etc)

    It seems like the Palestinians have taken a lesson from the Chinese knife attacks. Personally the knife attacks are as scary if not more than the suicide bombings.

    I don’t know if there is any hope for the American Jews to change their mind at all.
