Tuesday's Jerusalem terrorist was relative of imprisoned Hamas 'lawmaker'

There was another terror attack in Jerusalem this afternoon. Fortunately, this time no one was killed, but sixteen people were wounded. The terror attack was a copycat attack of the bulldozer attack earlier this month.
The vehicle reportedly left a construction site near Yemin Moshe neighborhood and set off towards Liberty Bell Park (Gan Hapa'amon), near the corner of Keren Hayesod and King David streets. It drove a distance of approximately 160 meters, attempting to overturn a bus and crashing into four other vehicles - one of which it flipped over. The man was then shot dead by a civilian and a border policeman.

The wounded were evacuated to hospitals in the capital.

Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said police sealed off possible escape routes into east Jerusalem and were searching for two suspects who fled the scene.

The attack took place in a busy part of downtown Jerusalem, several hundred meters from the luxury hotel where US presidential candidate Barack Obama is supposed to stay Tuesday night as he kicks off a visit to Israel. [That's the King David. CiJ]

The bus that was hit, No. 13, belonged to the same line of the bus that was overturned in the previous attack.

"I was driving on the main road when the (construction vehicle) hit me in the rear, on the right hand side," the driver of the bus, who was not identified, told Channel 10 TV.

"After I passed him he turned round, made a U-turn and rammed the windows twice with the shovel. The third time he aimed for my head, he came up to my window and I swerved to the right, otherwise I would have gone to meet my maker," he said.

Witness Moshe Shimshi said the driver, who was wearing a large, white skullcap commonly worn by religious Muslims, slammed into the side of the bus, then sped away and went for a car.

"He didn't yell anything, he just kept ramming into cars," Shimshi said.

The driver then headed for cars waiting at a red light "and rammed into them with all his might," he added.

Channel 10 TV said a mother and her baby were wounded. Israeli rescue services said they had evacuated one person whose leg was partially severed; Israel media said he was in the car that was overturned.
I have a videotape for you, so let's go to the videotape and then I'll be back with more:

For those who know the city, in the first part, the white building on the left is the King Solomon Hotel and the second part is from the ambulance drop-off at Shaarei Zedek Hospital.

'Palestinian' sources in Jerusalem reported that the terrorist who carried out Tuesday's bulldozer attack is was 22-year-old Ghasam Abu-Tir from the Arab neighborhood Umm-Tuba in East Jerusalem. Abu-Tir is a relative of Hamas lawmaker Muhammad Abu Tir, who is held in Israeli prison.

For those of you who have seen Muhammad Abu Tir, he's pretty unforgettable, isn't he?

Here's another video, this time with narration.

Jerusalem Mayor Uri Lupolianski, who arrived at the scene after the attack, said that "this is another east Jerusalem resident from on of Jerusalem's villages."

Regarding the terrorists, Lupolianski said: "You throw terrorists out the door, they climb through the window with all kinds of means and ideas. Every working tool becomes a means of terror and we must rethink how we employ those working here."

No, Uri, there's no need to rethink. In fact, since you are ultra-Orthodox, let me remind you that Rabbi Chaim Kanievsky has already given us the answer, but we weren't listening. There's a very simple solution to this problem. Don't let Arabs work in Jerusalem, and certainly not with heavy machinery. That includes working for the city Uri.

For those of you who think that's not fair, it's real simple: Not all Arabs are terrorists but all terrorists are Arabs. I would rather be alive and have my family be alive than be multi-culti politically correct and - God forbid - be murdered in a terror attack.

And for those of you wondering about Abu Tir's ridiculous beard, no, it's not real. It's been dyed with henna.

Exactly, Carl. You would think the city would have learned Arabs pose a threat to Jewish lives after what happened three weeks ago. But nothing has been done to address the situation since then. Today's incident was entirely preventable. And I should add its a miracle innocents weren't murdered today but the Talmud warns us not to rely on miracles. The city must cease hiring Arabs for construction work permanently.

unfortunately your going to find more attacks coming from with in Israel than outside. I have a feeling that hizbollah and hamas have set up shop with in the Israeli Islamic citizens. Its going to be hard for mosad to find them
