Here we go again: Terror in Jerusalem

You would think after last summer no one would allow an Arab behind the wheel of a tractor or bulldozer in a city in Israel. You'd be wrong. This afternoon, yet another 'Palestinian' terrorist purposely drove a bulldozer into other vehicles on a Jerusalem road. This time it happened near the Malcha Mall, where the Menachem Begin highway ends, at Golomb Boulevard. It's an intersection my two young sons pass each morning on their way to school. Thankfully, this time a taxi driver shot and wounded the terrorist immediately, and only two police officers - whose car was flipped over by the bulldozer - were lightly wounded.
Two police officers were wounded in Jerusalem shortly after 1:00 p.m. when an Arab-driven tractor plowed into their vehicle. The officers, though hurt, fired at the terrorist, as did a civilian, and the terrorist was mortally wounded.

Details are still sparse, but it appears that the terrorist first tried to ram into a bus, which was empty at the time. He then turned his attention to the policemen. Other reports say the terrorist pushed the police vehicle into the bus, and then tried to hit other vehicles when he was shot.

The policemen were taken by ambulance to a nearby hospital, where they are listed in light condition.

The incident occurred at a busy intersection in southern Jerusalem, where the Menachem Begin Highway meets Eliyahu Golumb Blvd., not far from Teddy Stadium and the popular Malcha Mall.
The civilian was a taxi driver, and according to Israel Radio (which interviewed him), he shot the terrorist first. The taxi driver told Israel Radio that he shot the terrorist four times, critically wounding him.

Good job taxi driver!

UPDATE 2:02 PM

Israel Radio reports that the police car was flipped over twice - clearly not an accident as the 'Palestinians' may ultimately report. The bulldozer also hit an empty bus.

UPDATE 2:31 PM

Yes, that's the bulldozer at the top of this post.

UPDATE 3:52 PM

YNet reports that the terrorist is now dead (Hat Tip: Gateway Pundit).

UPDATE 4:47 PM

Arutz Sheva (Israel National News) has a photo essay from the scene of today's attack here.

UPDATE 4:59 PM

Here's raw video from the attack's aftermath. Let's go to the videotape.



UPDATE 5:29 PM

Israel Radio reported at 5:00 that police found an open Koran in the bulldozer. I'm shocked. Just shocked.

Arabs should be banned from construction jobs. Luckily, no one was killed today. Its quite clear the removal of Arabs from the Jewish economy is not simply a matter of personal safety but a matter of national security. If there is work Jews won't do, it can be filled with foreign labors. And to stupid Judge Shula, the slogan No Arabs No Terror is confirmed by events like today in Jerusalem.

I really would prefer a trial rather than a bullet to the head by a vigilante cabby. DIsabling the caterpillar does not require a murder. Bad scene all around

issy

nonsense...

a dead terrorists cannot be released to murder again...

it's time to react to all terrorist attacks with lethal force and to INSULT the cabbie by calling him a vigilante shows what a goofball you are...

yes my dear, just go STOP a tractor with tap on the shoulder and a pretty please?

issy grow up...

How about we GIVE the cabbie a medal?

How about we now seize all assets of the terrorist? And give the assets to the victims?

How about we sew the body of the terrorist in a pig skin and dump him in the sea for the sharks?

NO? why dont want to hurt his feelings?

It's a GREAT day in Israel...

A fucktard terrorist is shot dead

Congrats cabbie!

Great shooting!

This incident just goes to show the great danger of reading while driving.

Izzy - other than, as WIO said, "dead terrorists cannot be released to murder again" it must be clear that was not just a "vigilante cabbie" - he prevented the terrorist from continuing his rampage and killing people.

If you say someone running around with an axe, trying to kill people - would you not shoot him first?

If you're waiting for the terrorists' homes to be demolished - they haven't and they won't be. My guess is the latest terrorist family will also collect survivor benefits from Israel's Social Security.

The harsh truth is Israeli politicians do not hold Jewish life in particularly high regard or we wouldn't be seeing these incidents repeated every now and so often.
