Another Bulldozer Attack in Jerusalem
Another Palestinian ran amok with a piece of heavy equipment this morning in Jerusalem, attempting mass murder but only succeeding in getting himself killed: 2 cops lightly hurt, terrorist shot dead in Jerusalem attack.
The BBC, as usual, rushed out with a headline that portrayed the Palestinian driver as a victim: “Tractor driver shot dead in Jerusalem.”
Initial signs are pointing away from the possibility that the driver was a Buddhist: Jerusalem: Bulldozer plows into police vehicle; terrorist killed.
Jerusalem District Police Commander Nissan Shaham recapped the event: “At approximately 1:10 pm we received a report of a terror attack taking place at Menachem Begin Boulevard. A Jerusalem Highway Patrol car was first to arrive at the scene and saw the bulldozer attempt to crush the police car and then lift it up.
”The officers shot the terrorist and neutralized him. Seconds later, a cab driver who pulled over fired as well, as did another police officer who arrived at the scene, and a force volunteer. The driver was critically injured, taken off the tractor and rushed to a nearby hospital, where he later died of his wounds. We found an open Quran book in the driver’s compartment.“
