The Bedouin terrorist who attacked soldiers, police and civilians at the Central Bus Station in Be’er Sheva Sunday night supported the Islamic State (ISIS) ideology, according to a man who worked with him.
Channel 2 television reported that the worker said, “He talked about it all the time.”
The terrorist was from the city of Hura, located between Be’er Sheva and Arad. It used to be a relatively pro-Israel city, and its residents years ago cast most of their votes for none other than the Shas Hareidi religious party for the simple reason that it was responsible for the government’s pumping millions of dollars into the city. Among other projects, a large community center was built in Hura.
In the last elections, Shas won 0.6 percent of the vote, and the United Arab List swept the city.
Hamas has undermined its way into the city’s younger population, and now it appears that ISIS is winning the hearts and minds of some people.
Bedouin leaders in Hura said Monday they were shocked that by the attack in Be’er Sheva and that the terrorist was a quiet young a man.
