Arabs Attack Bus Carrying Israelis, Tourists to Western Wall
Arabs in Jerusalem attacked Israelis and foreign tourists traveling in a bus on the way to the Western Wall Tuesday morning.
The attackers hurled rocks at the vehicle, smashing the windshield of the bus in a deliberate attempt to kill the driver and send the bus into a fatal crash.
A number of similar road terror attacks have successfully murdered and wounded numerous drivers and/or their passengers in the past.
Miraculously, this morning’s attempt failed to physically harm anyone, although passengers were traumatized. Police immediately began scanning the area for suspects but no arrests have yet been made.
The attack occurred as United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon was making headlines gasping over the destruction wrought by Hamas terrorists’ use of Gazans as human shields this summer during Operation Protective Shield.
Ban lamented the damage inflicted by IAF pilots, which came in response to incessant rocket and missile attacks on millions of Israeli civilians by Hamas and allied terrorists.
An estimated 20,000 homes were heavily damaged or destroyed due to terrorists embedding their ordnance, rocket launchers and strategic facilities among residential areas.
The land mass of Gaza is approximately that of New York City. The enclave’s population of about 1.8 million Palestinian Authority Arabs is concentrated in several areas where the land is good for agriculture, leaving numerous open areas.
The UN leader called the situation “beyond description” but also announced that Israel had agreed to allow an initial truckload of construction materials to enter Gaza.
The announcement comes despite the hard evidence that Hamas misused millions of dollars’ worth of construction materials previously trucked in for humanitarian purposes. Instead the terrorist group channeled the supplies to build a honeycomb of terrorist tunnels fully equipped for military use beneath the region and its borders, leading into both Israel and Egypt.
International donors pledged $5.4 billion on Sunday at a special donor conference in Cairo for reconstruction of the enclave. The sum exceeded the request of $4 billion submitted by the PA unity government for the purpose.
