And again: Soldier attacked by 'Arab looking man' on Ramat Gan bus

An IDF soldier was stabbed in the neck this evening by an 'Arab looking man' on a Ramat Gan bus. The soldier is hospitalized in Tel Aviv's Ichilov Hospital in moderate condition.
"The motive for the attack is unclear at this stage," a Tel Aviv police spokesman told The Jerusalem Post. "We don't yet know what the background is. We do have a description of the suspect and we have launched a hunt for him," the spokesman added.

Eye witnesses on the bus reported hearing screams from the back of the 67 bus, and then turning around to see a soldier with a knife protruding from his neck. No dispute between the soldier and the attacker appeared to have taken place before the attack.

Following the attack, passengers called on the bus driver to stop the vehicle, and the attacker disembarked and fled the scene.

Magen David Adom paramedics reported treating a soldier for a stab wound to his neck under his ear. The stab victim was fully conscious, paramedics added.
While we pray for the soldier's full recovery, the fact that 'Palestinian' terrorists are - bli ayin hara (warding off evil eyes) - reduced to carrying out stabbing attacks rather than causing mass casualty events with suicide bombings shows that having the IDF in Judea and Samaria together with the 'security fence' (but truthfully mostly the IDF) is reducing the level of terror in the country.

Carl - Arab hatred of Jews would explode into murderous violence and when the British ran Eretz Israel, there was a massacre of Jews in Jaffa on May 1st-3rd 1921.

Sarah Honig has the details in the Jerusalem Post:
Another Tack: The May Massacre Of 1921
This happened long before Israel was born and before settlements and borders ever became an issue. The Arabs hate Jews not because of where they live but because of who are.

Things have changed little since the century gone.

Read it all.
