Arabs ambush terror victims' group leader

Brig. Gen. (Res) Meir Indor, already a terror attack victim once before and the head of the Almagor terror victims' organization, was wounded by an Arab mob on Wednesday morning as he returned from an all-night Torah study session at a yeshiva on the Mount of Olives.
Jerusalem Arabs, including children from an Israeli government school, attacked and wounded the director of the Almagor terror victims group early Wednesday morning. He and his wife narrowly escaped murder at the hands of the rioters.

The victim, former senior IDF officer Meir Indor, suffered head wounds and is being treated at Hadassah Mount Scopus Hospital.

His daughter Sarah Beck, a journalist for Channel 2 television, told Israel National News her mother was driving Indor back from an all-night Torah study session at a Jewish neighborhood at the Mount of Olives (Har HaZeitim), a tradition on the last day of Sukkot, known in Hebrew as Hoshanah Raba.

“My father was sitting next to my mother, and they were stuck in traffic and blocked by a car full of Arabs,” early Wednesday morning, she reported. “Suddenly, the Arabs attacked them with metal rods, cinder blocks and rocks with the participation of children from the adjacent Al Tur school.

Beck pointed out that the school is administered by the Israeli Ministry of Education.

The attack continued for several minutes, and Indor’s wife managed to get out of the traffic jam, but not before her husband was wounded and their car damaged beyond repair. She was able to drive the vehicle to the hospital.
They're lucky they knew their way around. I get lost every time I try driving in that area.

Carl - that's an area you won't be driving past any time soon unless you get a gun.

Only foolish people drive where there's danger.

That said, Meir and his wife were very fortunate. If they had a gun, a tragedy might have been averted.

What are the laws in Israel about carrying weapons? I guess regardless of the law all Israelis should arm themselves. Is this another area where the IDF has turned over security to the PA?
