There has been a rash of knife attacks throughout Israel recently by Palestinians against innocent Jews, once again proving that evil people will still do evil things — even without a gun.
Security camera footage shows a knife attack on Saturday by a young Palestinian on a group of Israeli police officers.
Due to the increase in knife attacks, Israeli police have stepped up their security measures in Jerusalem, in this instance near a gate to the Old City.
According to the Jerusalem Post, the attack occurred as the officers were checking identifications for a group of Arab men and one of them jumped up and repeatedly stabbed one of the officers in the neck with a large knife. He then began wildly swinging his knife around, stabbing another officer in the chest.
Almost instantly, the knife-wielding terrorist was surrounded by the other officers who opened fire. They killed the man on the spot, but unfortunately wounded one of their own with friendly fire.
“Following the earlier terrorist attack in the area, police saw a suspicious Arab man and asked him for identification as part of the intensive police operations taking place in and around the Old City to prevent further attacks,” police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld told the Jerusalem Post.
“After handing over his ID card, the terrorist stabbed one of the officers in the neck and another one in the upper body. Police nearby shot and killed him, and a third officer was lightly wounded when he was accidentally struck by one of the bullets,” he said.
By way of comparison, look at this Facebook post from a Muslim in Germany who, although viewing the same video footage as the rest of us, still declares that an unarmed Palestinian was gunned down by the “occupying” Israelis.
Roughly translated by Facebook, the post in Arabic allegedly reads, “The Martyr ‘Muhammad Ali’ defend himself after the soldiers of the occupying police follow the attack against him and provoke a column two days ago.”
It remains unclear how an “unarmed” man can “defend himself” with a knife against police officers simply checking IDs, but that is nevertheless the propagandized anti-Israel version of the incident.
This is what the Israelis have to deal with in the crowded urban areas of Jerusalem and other cities, and goes to show that the gun-grabbers who think violence will simply not occur if there are no guns are flat out wrong.
