Manasara himself was hospitalized in fair condition after he was hit by a car during the attack, as were his victims. His cousin was killed by police after charging at them instead of dropping his weapon.
According to the report, the young teen terrorist will admit to the attempted murders but his attorney will try to change the description of what happened that day in order to change the severity of the charges against his client, who turns 14 in January.
Only at age 14 does it becomes possible to sentence a youth to prison time under the law in Israel. If, however, he is sentenced prior to that time, Manasara will instead only be held in a locked facility.
A video of the young terrorist’s interrogation was somehow leaked to the Arab media.
(JNi.media) The Doctors for Human Rights organization on Thursday protested the publication of a picture showing the 13-year-old boy Ahmed Manasra in his bed at Hadassah Ein Kerem Medical Center, after the stabbing attack he had launched in Jerusalem.
The organization said that the publication of a photograph of a minor without the permission of his parents is a breach of his legal right to privacy, and of medical ethics. The organization also stated it was disturbed by the fact that the picture had been distributed by a Government Press Office. Manasra was seriously injured after he was hit by a car when passersby began chasing him and his partner in terror after the stabbing.
In his short speech yesterday, PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas described the cold blooded execution of a 13-year-old Palestinian boy, Ahmed Manasra, who had stabbed two Israelis in the Pisgat Ze’ev neighborhood of Jerusalem, one of them, 13, critically. Abbas said his killing was but an example of the “summary execution of our children in cold blood” carried out by Israel.
So the Prime Minister’s Office on Thursday released photos of Manasra recovering nicely in his Hadassah hospital bed, and Israeli officials announced the show refuted Abbas’s claim, and revealed the chairman’s tendency to incite his people to violence.
Israel also released to Arab media outlets a video of the attack in Pisgat Ze’ev, with Arabic subtitles, showing clearly the extent of the young man’s brutality and bloodlust, along with Manasra’s bedside photos.
Meanwhile, despite the affront to his privacy, Ahmed Manasra’s medical condition has improved and is now considered light-to-moderate, a Hadassah spokesperson said on Thursday.
The other assailant continued to flee until he ran into a Border Police unit, which ordered him to drop his knife. When he refused to do so and instead continued running toward them, they shot him to death.
Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas can stop worrying now. His “13-year-old Ahmed” – the young teen terrorist who tried to slaughter two Israelis this week — appears to be quickly returning to health at Hadassah Ein Kerem Medical Center in Jerusalem.
“The youth he is talking about is alive and hospitalized in Hadassah Hospital after he stabbed an Israeli youth who was riding a bicycle at the time.
“While Israel maintains the status quo on the Temple Mount, Abu Mazen, with his words of incitement, makes cynical use of religion and thus brings about terrorism.”
The young terrorist, meanwhile, is quickly returning to health, as is seen in a photo released by the prime minister’s office.
The hospital itself is also making an effort to disprove the lies by Abbas that Israel “executes Palestinian children.” Although this particular “child” nearly succeeded in executing an innocent boy even younger than him, he himself is recovering nicely, thank-you-very-much, in an Israeli hospital with up-to-the-minute medical care, the hospital explains.
“Hadassah Hospital wishes to inform the public that, in stark contrast to circulating rumors, the 13 year-old boy who attacked civilians … in the Jerusalem neighborhood of Pisgat Ze’ev was hospitalized at Hadassah University Hospital. His condition is stable and he is fully conscious.”
In the video footage filmed at the hospital, readers can see a nearly-healed, eating and drinking 13-year-old Ahmed Manasra — who stabbed and critically wounded a boy two months shy of his 13th birthday and a man age 25 — thus disputing the claim by Abbas that he was “executed.”
Hadassah Ein Kerem Medical Center stated Thursday afternoon that Manasra’s condition is improving and that he will be released from the hospital in the next few days.
The condition of his victims – including the witnesses permanently traumatized by the attack they watched unfold – is not as clear.
Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas stepped up to pour a little ignition fluid on the flames of terror on Wednesday.
In a speech from his headquarters in the Palestinian Arab capital city of Ramallah in Samaria, Abbas attacked Israel’s response to the current wave of terror.
“We are peaceful, but we will not accept the actions of the settlers and the executions of Palestinian children under occupation,” he said, according to translations by Channel 2 television news and Ha’aretz.
“We will not concede to Israel’s occupation policies and those of its settlers who terrorize our holy sites, our women, our land, and execute our youths, like they did to 13-year-old Ahmed,” he continued, in a reference to one of two assailants involved in an especially vicious terror attack this week in Pisgat Ze’ev.
The prime minister’s office responded bluntly that the speech was filled with lies: “The boy referenced is alive (not “executed”) and still hospitalized after stabbing an Israeli riding his bike. While Israel maintains the status quo on the Temple Mount, Abbas makes cynical use of religion and thus prompts terror,” the PMO said in a statement.
It is Abbas himself, in fact, who has inspired these so-called “children” to such acts. Abbas and others in his government have glorified the “sacrifices” of those who die while murdering Israeli Jews, calling them “martyrs” and referring to their spilled blood as “pure blood, clean blood.” The Palestinian Authority government each year hastens to laud dead terrorists who have murdered Israelis, naming public streets, squares and camps in their memory. Those who are incarcerated in Israeli prisons receive high salaries for their service; the more deadly the attack, the higher the salary.
And yet, Abbas delivers a performance of the indignant statesman, outraged over the untimely death or bleeding wounds of an innocent Palestinian Arab “child” by Bad Israelis and the violent Occupation.
Thank God for security cameras, which can help us tell which side of Alice’s Looking Glass we’re seeing through.
The following video shows the world the truth about the “innocent Palestinian Arab children” Abbas refers to. Peaceful is as peaceful does. The “children” in the CCTV footage released by Israel Police on Wednesday are clearly anything but babies.
Ages 13 and 17, they are clearly seen brandishing chef’s knives that are reminiscent of hatchets. They literally track their prey in the first segment, a 25-year-old religious Jewish man, older than both of them. In the second segment, only the results of the attack are seen, and one of the assailants still brandishing his knife just before he is shot.
Fully capable of planning and executing an attempt to murder, arming themselves and chasing down their prey, they are hardly children.
The “occupation” referred to by Abbas, meanwhile, is his description of this country’s establishment and its continued existence. Since the State of Israel is not going anywhere anytime soon, it would be to the benefit of the Palestinian Arab population for their leadership to make their peace with that fact, sooner rather than later.
He’s only 13 years old, but a young Jewish boy who was riding his bicycle minding his own business Monday afternoon is now fighting for life at the Mount Scopus campus of Jerusalem’s Hadassah Medical Center.
He is currently in critical but stable condition after undergoing life-saving surgery after being stabbed nearly to death by an Arab terrorist — a boy no older than himself — who attacked him near the Jerusalem Light Rail station on Sderot Moshe Dayan, in the northern Jerusalem neighborhood of Pisgat Ze’ev.
A 25-year-old Jewish man was badly wounded when he was stabbed by a second terrorist, age 17, in the same attack as well.
