The wave of terrorism really kicked off with the Palestinian Authority’s announcement that it was ending security cooperation with Israel prior to Biden administration personnel visiting Israel. While the media is trying to make it look like a series of lone-wolf attacks, there’s nothing coincidental about them. Or the focus on Jerusalem.
The latest is another Jerusalem terror attack, this time using the familiar Car Jihad tactic.
A murderous drive-by attack in Jerusalem: 20-year-old Habarach Alter Shlomo Lederman and a 6-year-old boy were killed and five others were injured, some seriously, when a terrorist driving a car crashed into a bus stop at the corner of Golda Meir and Binyamin Mintz streets in the capital’s Ramot neighborhood. The terrorist driving
Lederman “had been standing at the bus stop with his wife, whom he married only six months ago, at the time of the attack. The two were waiting for a bus to the city of Elad, where they had planned to spend Shabbat with his parents. The wife was unharmed.”
The 6-year-old boy has been killed.
Jacov Yisrael Fali, a six-year-old boy. Fali was laid to rest in a small funeral before the start of Shabbat, at the request of his family. Fali’s father, who was moderately injured in the attack, is hospitalized and could not attend his son’s funeral. Jacob’s 8-year-old brother is still fighting for his life, while his father is also hospitalized in a moderate condition and another brother is in a mild condition
It was another horrifying scene in a long line of horrors perpetrated by Islamic terrorists.
MDA emergency medic Shraga Rosenthal said: “When we arrived at the scene, the sight was shocking. We saw a car near the bus station after it hit pedestrians who were waiting at the station. We saw 6 victims lying next to each other. Of these, 2 children were about 6 years old who were unconscious with severe multisystem injuries. A 27-year-old man and a 30-year-old man were unconscious and 2 other victims were fully conscious with injuries to their limbs. We gave them primary medical care and performed CPR on both children. This is a very difficult event.”
MDA paramedic Lishi Shemesh added: “I was in the car with my wife and children and I noticed a car driving quickly to the bus stop and running over the people standing at the stop. I stopped on the side and immediately ran towards the injured. A security guard neutralized and eliminated the terrorist. The sight was shocking, we saw casualties including 6 and 8 year old children lying unconscious. We started to do an initial screening of the victims and give them life-saving treatment. Immediately, large MDA forces arrived on the scene and continued the medical treatment and evacuated to the hospitals. I joined one of the ambulances and we evacuated a 26-year-old man in serious condition with a head injury to Shaare Zedek Hospital.”
All of this is being financed by the Palestinian Authority. And the Biden administration remains one of the biggest funders of the “Palestinians”.
This doesn’t have to go on happening. But it requires tough decisions by Israel and the United States. And those are not happening. Meanwhile, Israeli leftists and their allies will go on loudly denouncing judicial reform which could strip some of the unlimited power that leftist judges have at their disposal for protecting terrorists.

My pet idea is to restrict the mobility of terrorists, including terrorist vehicles. There are a number of ways of doing that, more traffic patrol, checkpoints, blocking roads, etc.
Angel Jacob says
The best defense is always a good offense. A 1000 to to one ratio will make the terrorists think twice.
The gloves must come off. Not only hit the terrorists at home, but also hit their supporters worldwide.
It’s a war. Islamists don’t fight conventional wars. They must be given a heavy dose of their own medicine.

Israel is for the Jews. That is the truth, verified by history. No one should live in Israel who does not love it and her people.
Jeff Bargholz says
That’s just too horrible for words to express. Dead kids. I can’t handle that.
Algorithmic Analyst says
Yeah, this was a bad one.

6-Year-Old Murdered by Islamic Terrorist in Jerusalem
Isn’t this unlawful too?
E T Gwynn says
My idea along with the above recommendation of Population and Resources Control, is to make and hold the national leaders of Palestine and wherever else to account for such activities.
1. Send the murderous a letter indicating outright the intent to hold them to account for terrorism directed at any Israeli or Jew anywhere.
2. Further inform them that in the aftermath of such murder the actual perpetrators will be killed as soon as they are identified and that the offices/residences and any other location frequented by the national leadership will be destroyed using standoff weapons and such retaliatory attacks will continue until success is achieved.
3. Recommend that the letter or a copy thereof be placed in the upper right hand drawer of the leader’s desk for his successor.
Sword of the Spirit says
I say then, Hath God cast away his people? God forbid. For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin.
2God hath not cast away his people which he foreknew. Wot ye not what the scripture saith of Elias? how he maketh intercession to God against Israel, saying,
3Lord, they have killed thy prophets, and digged down thine altars; and I am left alone, and they seek my life.
4But what saith the answer of God unto him? I have reserved to myself seven thousand men, who have not bowed the knee to the image of Baal.
5Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election of grace.
6And if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it be of works, then is it no more grace: otherwise work is no more work.
7What then? Israel hath not obtained that which he seeketh for; but the election hath obtained it, and the rest were blinded
8(According as it is written, God hath given them the spirit of slumber, eyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not hear;) unto this day.
Kynarion Hellenis says
Jewish readers may need context. You quote Romans 11: 1-8, foretold in the Song of Moses:
Deuteronomy 32:21 “[Israel has] provoked My jealousy by that which is not God;
they have enraged Me with their worthless idols.
So I will make them jealous by those who are not a people;
I will make them angry by a nation without understanding.”
Kynarion Hellenis says
#2 Romans 11:11 “ask then, did [Israel] stumble so as to fall beyond recovery? Certainly not! However, because of their trespass, salvation has come to the Gentiles to make Israel jealous. 12 But if their trespass means riches for the world, and their failure means riches for the Gentiles, how much greater riches will their fullness bring.
13 I [Paul] am speaking to you Gentiles. Inasmuch as I am the apostle to the Gentiles, I magnify my ministry 14 in the hope that I may provoke my own people to jealousy and save some of them. 15 For if their rejection is the reconciliation of the world, what will their acceptance be but life from the dead? 16 If the first part of the dough is holy, so is the whole batch; if the root is holy, so are the branches.
17 Now if some branches [of Israel] have been broken off, and you [gentiles], a wild olive shoot, have been grafted in among the others to share in the nourishment of the olive root, 18 do not boast over those branches. If you do, remember this: You do not support the root [of Israel], but the root supports you [gentiles].
19 You will say then, “Branches were broken off so that I could be grafted in.” 20 That is correct: They were broken off because of unbelief, but you stand by faith. Do not be arrogant, but be afraid. 21 For if God did not spare the natural branches, He will certainly not spare you either.”

That stupid Trump idiot hat we still have to listen to even though he already sold every aspect that pertains to him.

You might have had our tangential support last time. You’re not getting it this time. Appalling.
The murderer, unidentified here but presumably Muslim, acted as he did primarily for two reasons:
1. He expected that the P.A. would provide significant financial rewards to his family in perpetuity for his killing Jews, and
2. Islam commands its adherents to slay and be slain for Allah’s sake; as the Qur’an identifies Jews as ” greatest in enmity to the believer,” it follows that Jews should be the Muslims’ primary targets. Moreover, fighting and dying for Allah is the Muslim’s only guaranteed way of entering Jannah (i.e. Paradise).
The Palestinian Authority bases its “pay for slay” policy on these basic tenets of Muslim theology.
