2 Israelis gravely injured in third stabbing of day in Jerusalem

Two Israelis were gravely injured in a stabbing attack in Jerusalem Monday, the third terror attack to hit the capital in a single day. The attack took place in the northern neighborhood of Pisgat Ze’ev, adjacent to a light rail station.

One 13-year-old victim was said to be in critical condition. Doctors at the Hadassah Hospital Mount Scopus said he suffered multiple stab wounds to his upper body, and he was undergoing emergency surgery in hopes of stabilizing his condition.

    Media have headlined it “fresh stabbing”. They’re now so common that media have to flag up that it’s not the same stabbing as another only recently reported.

    Israel needs the death penalty and then needs to resume their destruction of the homes of the families of these terrorists.

      They have already resumed destruction of homes, although I favor seizure of all property of value, same as it’s done in the States for even nonviolent offenses. That way, nobody can complain of cruel or unusual punishment. And, of course, I favor taking no prisoners.

    Don’t expect honest or accurate reporting of these stabbings on behalf of the Western media.

    Check out this classic Star moment from Sunday’s Toronto Star….

    ‘A protester runs from Israeli troops….’

    No, it’s a guy, his left hand full of stones, throwing a stone with his right hand.

    The photo caption paints him as a victim of aggression when in fact HE IS THE AGGRESSOR…..

    Time for a lockdown – maybe the Old City walls should be considered a separation barrier. Already built and no extra expense to Israelis!

    Second thought – since these “fresh stabbings” are outside the Old City, maybe annexation plus an enforceable Oath of Allegiance to Israel would be the ticket.

  • We need a visit from President Obama. Maybe he’ll politicize knife control legislation.

    WHY does Israel allow these vermin to remain in their country. They are vilified anyway, might as well do it.
