The News On The Israel Street
Palestinian terrorism today (Wednesday):
A Palestinian terrorist attempted to stab Border Police at the Damascus Gate in the Old City of Jerusalem. No Israelis were wounded. The terrorist was shot and killed.
Other terror today: there have been “rock” and Molotov targeting Israeli civilians at Psagot, Luban Sharquiya, Gilad Road, and at Amos.
Palestinian terrorism yesterday:
There were more than 30 terror attacks yesterday. Numerous Israelis were treated for trauma, and a soldier was wounded in Qalandiya.
In what must be the greatest non-surprise in Israeli political history . . .
It appears today that PM Netanyahu and Finance Minister Moshe Kahlon are close to an agreement that will bring to a halt all of the nonsensical talk about new elections. The agreement involves a compromise over the Israel Broadcast Authority which is too ridiculous to go over again.
In what must be the greatest non-surprise in Middle East history. . .
King Abdullah of Jordan declared today that solving the Palestinian issue is the only way to achieve peace. The statement was closely coordinated with the Arab League which issued a nonsensical statement saying the same thing.
500,000 dead in Syria, Islamic State in Syria and on Jordan’s border, Sunnis and Shi’ites massacring each other whenever possible, and Iran establishing a crescent of power reaching from Lebanon on the Mediterranean to Tehran–and the Palestinian issue is of foremost importance?
