that the previous bulldozer murderer did NOT have his house demolished by
the Olmert junta nor were his family members stripped of their survivor
benefits by the National Insurance Institute (Israel's social security)?
Another Bulldozer Attack in Jerusalem: 12 Wounded
by Hillel Fendel
(IsraelNN.com) For the second time in three weeks, an Arab commandeered a
bulldozer to commit a terrorist attack in Jerusalem. He wounded several
people before being shot and killed.
The terrorist began his attempt to murder Jews on King David St. near the
Yemin Moshe neighborhood. He took a tractor from a construction site, and
began plowing into vehicles along the street, hitting three cars and a
bus. When he reached the intersection of Keren HaYesod St., a citizen and
Border Guard policeman shot and killed him. The entire incident was over
very quickly, eyewitnesses said.
Less than three weeks ago, an Arab from eastern Jerusalem killed three
people in a similar attack before he was himself killed by a heroic
yeshiva student/soldier. The tractor used in today's attack was smaller
than the one used in the previous one.
Of the 12 injured, one is reported in moderate condition - apparently with
an amputated leg - and the others have light injuries or are suffering
from trauma. Among them are a woman and her nine-month-old baby son.
Gag-Order on Terrorist's Name
The dead tractor terrorist was an Israeli citizen, living in Um Tuba, a
south-eastern Jerusalem Arab neighborhood not far from Sur Baher. His
name was publicized over the radio, and minutes later, a gag order
prohibiting it from being disseminated was publicized - apparently because
of his family connections with a prominent Hamas family.
Moshe Feiglin, leader of the Likud's Manhigut Yehudit faction, was an
eyewitness to the attack. He told Voice of Radio that his first impression
of the attack was the tractor-shovel attempting to drop down upon a
passerby. "At first I thought it was some kind of accident, but very
quickly we realized that it was an attack. Thank G-d, it ended very
quickly, because of the alertness of passersby who shot him - I saw a man
I know from the southern Judea community of Susia, but he was the first
one to shoot the terrorist, and then the Border Guard policeman came and
finished the story."
The man who first shot the terrorist was later announced to be Yaki Asael,
56, father of eight, from Susia.
"We have long called for a policy of not hiring Arabs in construction,"
said Shifra Hoffman of Victims of Arab Terror. "We hold the government
guilty of this attack for not implementing this policy."
