Arab ‘travel terror’ attacks resumed bright and early Thursday morning in and around the greater Jerusalem area.

At around 9 am, Arabs hurled a large rock at the back window of a bus in the Jerusalem suburb of Beit Shemesh where IDF soldiers were seated, as it was exiting the community.

“There was a lot of panic on the bus,” one passenger told the Hebrew-language 0404 website. “The window was smashed.” The source said there were elderly and children on the bus as well. “They took us off and ordered another bus to take us instead.”

About two hours later, the Jerusalem Light Rail was pelted with a hail of rocks in the northern neighborhood of Shuafat, in what is becoming a daily occurrence.

None of the passengers were physically injured although several were traumatized, and the train was damaged, at a cost of several thousand shekels to replace the smashed window.

Arab rioters have repeatedly tried to derail the line from passing through the neighborhood as it serves northern Jerusalem, despite the service provided to both Arabs and Jews.

  1. Whoever liked this post should be on those buses and light rail cars and be injured in those attacks. See how much you will like that.

  3. Muslim, Islam, or jihad, not all Arabs are Muslim although I know the number of non Muslims Arabs aloud to live in Islam land is very small.

  5. Barb, FB “Likes” don’t mean people like what’s being reported, i.e., the trains being terrorized necessarily. Sounds weird to me too.
