Palestinian ‘Day of Rage’ – Israelis Shot, Stabbed & Run Over in Murderous Attacks [Video]

Palestinian ‘Day of Rage’ – Israelis Shot, Stabbed & Run Over in Murderous Attacks [Video]

The Palestinians have declared a ‘Day of Rage’ against Israelis and are definitely getting their violence on. Two Palestinian men got on a bus in Jerusalem and began shooting and stabbing passengers. Another murderous psychopath rammed a car into a bus station, got out and started stabbing people. Three Israelis and one attacker are dead. Sixteen Israelis are injured so far. There were four separate attacks. The Jews are being relentlessly attacked by Jihadists, but you’d think it was on both sides according to this article. Palestinians are dead because Israelis are protecting themselves. Jews are dead because the Palestinians have a murderous hatred for them. See the difference here? Many fear this is a third Intifada.

Palestinian Day of Rage

From CBS:

JERUSALEM (CBS News/CBSDC/AP) — A pair of Palestinian men boarded a bus in Jerusalem and began shooting and stabbing passengers, while another assailant rammed a car into a bus station before stabbing bystanders, in near-simultaneous attacks Tuesday that escalated a monthlong wave of violence. Three Israelis and one attacker were killed.

The Jerusalem attacks, along with two stabbings in a central Israeli city, marked the most serious outbreak of violence since the current round of tensions erupted. More than 15 people were wounded.

The violence, coming at a time when peace prospects appear bleak, have fueled a sense of panic in Israel and raised fears that the region is on the cusp of a new round of heavy violence.

CBS News’ Jonathan Vigliotti reports Palestinian groups have declared a “Day of Rage” on Tuesday across the region.

Since the Jewish New Year last month, at least seven Isrealis and 27 Palestinians have been killed in the almost daily violence. The troubles began largely due to Muslim anger over increasing Jewish visits to the al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem.

The Jerusalem hilltop compound lies at the heart of recent tensions is revered by Muslims as the spot where Prophet Muhammad ascended to heaven and by Jews as the site of the two Jewish biblical Temples.

Many Palestinians believe Israel is trying to expand Jewish presence at the site, a claim Israel adamantly denies and considers slanderous. Under a longstanding arrangement administered by Islamic authorities, Jews are allowed to visit the site during certain hours but not pray there. The site is under the administrative authority of Jordan.

On Tuesday, police closed major highways leading in and out of Jerusalem, while Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called an emergency meeting of his Security Cabinet, where police were to present a plan to halt the violence. Police spokeswoman Luba Samri said the country’s internal security minister, Gilad Erdan, was considering a number of immediate steps, including sealing off Arab neighborhoods in east Jerusalem, where many of the attackers have come from, and making it easier to get gun licenses.

In the bus attack, police said two men, one carrying a gun and the other with a knife, boarded the vehicle and attacked passengers. Police said a 60-year-old man was killed, and a second person who was wounded later died. One of the attackers was shot dead and the second attacker was subdued by a crowd.

Elsewhere in Jerusalem, a Palestinian motorist rammed his vehicle into a crowded bus stop, then got out and began stabbing people. One Israeli was killed, police said.

The Jerusalem attacks, coupled with a pair of stabbing attacks in the central Israeli city of Raanana that injured five, including one seriously, came in rapid succession. Emergency services said several of the wounded were in serious condition.

On Monday, Palestinians carried out three stabbings in Jerusalem, leaving a teenage Israeli boy in critical condition.

The unrest began last month with clashes at Jerusalem’s most sensitive holy site and quickly spread across Israel and into the West Bank and Gaza Strip.

The Israeli military says hundreds of Palestinian protesters in Gaza gathered Tuesday near the Israeli border and threw stones and burning tires toward Israeli positions. The army says it is using “riot dispersal means” against the crowd.

Sami Abu Zuhri, a spokesman for Gaza’s Hamas rulers, said the movement “praises these heroic operations in Jerusalem and greets the heroes who carried them out.”

The attackers, many of them teenagers, have had no affiliation with militant groups, and the seemingly random nature of the stabbings has made it difficult to predict or prevent them. The use of vehicles and firearms in Jerusalem on Tuesday, however, marked a more serious level of violence and bring back memories of the deadly attacks that plagued Israeli cities during last decade’s second Palestinian uprising.

Israeli security officials, however, said Tuesday’s seemingly coordinated attacks indicated that the outburst of violence was starting to take on a more organized fashion, from groups behind the planning and those carrying out attacks. The officials, speaking anonymously according to regulations, said Israel expects the current wave to last at least a few more weeks.

In a fiery speech to parliament on Monday, Netanyahu accused the country’s Arab leaders of helping incite weeks of violence.

[…]

The violence erupted over the Jewish New Year last month, fueled by rumors that Israel was plotting to take over a site holy to both Muslims and Jews. The rumors ignited clashes between Israeli police and Palestinian activists who hurled stones and firebombs at them from inside the mosque, and the violence has spread.

Israel has dismissed the rumors and repeatedly said there are no plans to alter a longstanding status quo at the spot, revered by Jews as the site of the biblical Temples and today home to Islam’s Al-Aqsa Mosque compound.
Netanyahu will be meeting President Barack Obama at the White House next month.

This is the worst unrest in years in Israel and everyone is on edge. Citizens are being urged to arm themselves. It is expected that the violence will increase. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu convened an emergency meeting of his security cabinet to discuss what police said would be new operational plans. Officials said Israel’s public security minister was considering whether to seal off Palestinian neighborhoods in East Jerusalem, home of many of the assailants of the past two weeks, from the rest of the city. In all, seven Israelis and 28 Palestinians, including 10 alleged attackers and eight children, have died in almost two weeks of street attacks and security crackdowns. In my opinion, none of this is Israel’s fault. The Palestinians want them gone and dead and want all their land. This is more of the same hatred we have seen forever from these animals. My prayers are with the Israelis during this dark time.
