Masalma turned himself in to the Etzion District Coordinating Office (DCO) after a number of his family members, including his father, were arrested. He is suspected to have been the driver or an accomplice in the terror attack.

He has been sent to interrogation.

He claims it was an accident, and not a terror attack.

  1. It's good, in a way, to know that culprits are captured 'after the fact'.
    But it's a bit like 'locking the gate after the horse has bolted'.
    There needs to be a pronounced deterrent to violence, regardless of whether it's called Terrorism, Law Breaking or Resistance.
    Perhaps the answer IS to wait for HaShem to act. But it doesn't feel so satisfactory as active prevention and deterrence.

  2. I taught English as a Second Language for 10 years. Mowing down non-Islamic children is a terror method that has been reported to me by refugees and immigrants from India, Ethiopia, Eritrea, Nigeria, Kenya, south Sudan, Albania, Egypt (Copts), and Macedonia. Drivers always claim it was an accident and these claims are almost always accepted. I've been told that after families convert, their children are safe.

  3. Accident? Amazing how many of the same "accidents" are killing people in places where NO cars allowed while the drivers of all these "accidents" appear to have deliberately drive their cars into the crowd. Israel enough of the game, DEATH sentence may cure some of these intifada perpetrators

  4. Muslims are deceptive by years of rearing and simple socialization which is reinforced by their faith. Their claims of innocence are devoid of any real remorse even for their own kind.
