THE NEWS ON THE STREET IN ISRAEL
TERRORISM THIS AFTERNOON
At 3:48 pm this afternoon, a Palestinian terrorist carried out a bulldozer attack at the Gush Etzion Junction. The terrorist rammed her car into the bus stop there, but the Israelis standing there were able to get out of the way. Three Israelis, including a pregnant woman, were later treated for shock by MADA. The terrorist was shot but unfortunately not killed.
OTHER PALESTINIAN TERRORISM IN THE LAST 36 HOURS
There have been at least 30 terror attacks since yesterday morning.
Terrorists attacked Israeli civilians with “rocks” and Molotovs at such locations as Mt. Hevron, Husan, Sinjil, Ofer, Al Fawwar, Gorth Al-Heard, the Husan Bypass Road, Bab Al-Hutta, Neve Daniel, and Tubas.
Terrorists attacked Israeli soldiers and police at such locations as Sebastia, Deir Kadis, Dehaisha, Hevron, and Gush Etzion.
PALESTINIAN TERRORISM LAST YEAR
One of the Palestinian terrorists who was involved in the murder of Rabbi Miki Mark was sentenced today to two life sentences and payment of 250,000 shekels to Mark’s family. You may remember that Mark was shot to death on Road 60 near Beit Hagai back in July of last year. Mark’s wife was critically wounded in the attack and his daughter moderately so.
PALESTINIAN TERRORISM FROM 2001
An arrest warrant was issued yesterday by the United States for Ahlam Tamimi, the abominable Palestinian terrorist who drove another terrorist to the Sbarro pizza restaurant in Jerusalem in 2001. The suicide bomber she drove to the restaurant detonated himself slaughtering 15 Israeli children, women, and men–and wounding 150 more.
Tamimi was sentenced to 16 life terms but was incredibly released in the Gilad Shalit exchange in 2010. She subsequently went to Jordan where she was and is hailed as a heroine–and became a television star.
Why was the warrant and extradition request issued now? Simple. Two of those murdered at the restaurant were Israeli-Americans, and we suddenly have an Administration in Washington that cares.
Not surprisingly, Jordan–the supposed moderate voice in the Middle East–denied the extradition request today.
