A pickup truck rammed into a group of Zionists assembled at a rail road station in occupied East Jerusalem on Wednesday, killing one person and wounding a number of others, the Zionist Channel 2 reported.
The operation was carried out by a Palestinian from the east Jerusalem neighborhood of Shuafat, it added.
Zionist newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth stated that the Palestinian driver first hit a group of security forces waiting at a crosswalk on a main road, and then headed for the train station and continued driving down the street, hitting cars. He then rammed into a group of pedestrian Zionists with his car, killing one settler and leaving two with serious wounds, two others in moderate condition and one in light condition.
He then continued to hit a number of cars and then stopped, exited the car holding a metal bar and proceeded to attack additional pedestrians. Border Patrol forces then shot and killed him.
The Zionist Minister of Internal Security said that one of occupation Border Patrol troops is among the injured.
However, Haaretz newspaper admitted that the operation left 14 casualties, while Palestine Today new agency stated that the young Palestinian was martyred after killing 2 settlers and wounding 8 others.
Our friends at the Jewish Press noted that the only Israeli newspaper that is not adorned with the “Zionist” adjective is Haaretz.
The Palestinian Ma’an news agency offered the AFP story, which described the incident in sane terms, including a citation from Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri, who said the attack was a “natural response” to Israeli crimes in Jerusalem and a sign that the city is set to explode.
There was another story from Ma’an that offered an even more blood curdling angle on the brazen murder of innocents:
Several Palestinian political factions on Wednesday praised a car attack in Jerusalem which killed an Israeli border policeman and injured at least 13 other Israelis.
Hamas and the DFLP said the attack was a “natural response” to ongoing Israeli crimes against Palestinians in Jerusalem.
The Palestinian Arab Front called for an Intifada to to defend Jerusalem and the Al-Aqsa Mosque, while the Popular Resistance Committee said the attack was a “small payback” for Israeli crimes.
PRC leader Haitham al-Ashar said that attacks like this were the only way to stop Israel and called on Palestinians in Jerusalem to defend Al-Aqsa.
Clearly, peace is around the corner.
