The eastern Jerusalem Arab neighborhood of Ras el Amud, also called Ma'ale Zeitim.

The terrorist who stabbed a 72-year-old woman near the Jerusalem Central Bus Station early Wednesday evening was a resident of the city’s eastern Arab neighborhood of Ras el Amud, according to the Shin Bet, Israel’s Security Agency.

Ahmad Sha’aban, 23, was a convicted felon who had served time in an Israeli prison from 2012 to 2015 for terrorist activity, the Shin Bet revealed.

Sha’aban was shot and killed by a special ops police officer who spotted him fleeing with the knife in his hand after he was blocked from following his victim on to the bus she was boarding.

The victim, who managed to get into a front seat with some assistance, maintained consciousness throughout her ordeal. She was treated at the scene by Magen David Adom medics and then rushed to Shaare Zedek Medical Center, where she is currently listed in fair condition.

According to a report broadcast on Galei Tzahal Army Radio, the Jerusalem municipality has announced it will equip its inspectors with specially padded vests to protect them from stabbing attacks.

  1. I have been contemplating how to deal with the rise of individualized terror attacks against Jews in Israel. Shooting will stop the individual, but not the impetus. Islam is a Death Cult and becoming shaheed is a desired end, not a feared outcome. it is why the Cold War Nuclear philosophy of Mutually Assured Destruction in an impotent philosophy against Iran. Death is welcome to them.

    Preaching will not work. One of the key tenets of Islam is that Islam is superior to all other philosophies and no other philosophy has anything to offer Islam. It is why missionaries, blasphemers, apostates, and infidels are executed. Islam holds the non-believer is less than a true human and; like Ann Coulter’s belief towards Jews, believe the only hope for these less than true humans is to be perfected by conversion to their One True Way.

    So the answer is to find a deterrent within Islam.

    In Islam it is mandatory that the dead be carried to the burial site and mandatory fellow Muslims follow. Such an act is said to carry great rewards, and is why Islamic funerals are so big. The dead did not know them: they are Reward Parasites hoping to gain favour by the act.

    “Whoever attends the funeral from the house until the funeral prayer is offered will have one qeeraat, and whoever attends the funeral until the deceased is buried will have two qeeraats.” al-Janaa’iz, CE 1240 by al-Bukhaari

    In addition, Muslims should not be buried with Infidels, nor Infidels with Muslims. The Muslim should be buried in the Muslim graveyard. The Sunnah is to put the deceased into the grave from the end, then he should be turned onto his right side in the grave, with his face facing towards the qiblah in Mecca. The one who puts him into the lahd should say,

    “Bismillaahi wa ‘ala sunnat Rasool-Allaahi or ‘ala millat Rasool-Allaahi “peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him” “In the name of Allaah and according to the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allaah or according to the religion of the Messenger of Allah”
    Saheeh Sunan Abi Dawood, CE 836 by al-Albaani

    It is mustahabb for those who are at the grave to throw handfuls of earth, three handfuls scooped up in both hands, after the lahd has been sealed. Finally the grave itself is required to be raised about four inches higher that the surrounding area. This is to insure everyone knows it is a grave site.

    And herein lies the deterrent I would suggest. Take a lesson from the U.S. Navy Seals. Since Islam is a Death Cult and has very specific proscriptions and requirements regarding death, deny the dead their lionization, their reward. Yes. Shoot the terrorists, then take to bodies to sea on an Israeli Navy ship and give them a Chevra Kadisha burial at sea. Destroy their reward, destroy the chance of gaining qeeraats in the eyes of Allah, place them in a grave where they are certainly buried with Infidels dating back to the Phoenicians, Greek and Roman sailors in a grave guaranteeing they do not face Mecca. Deny them the reward they so desperately seek as shaheed. Deny thier family, their friends, their community, qeeraat.

  2. General secretary and (future president ) of the Zionist organisation and Israeli”s first prime minister David Ben Gurion said in 1920 following the Balfour declaration “The object of Zionism is to establish for the Jewish people a home in Palestine secured by public law.” … It has been said and is still being obstinately repeated by anti-Zionists again and again, that Zionism aims at the creation of an independent “Jewish State” But this is fallacious. The “Jewish State” was never part of the Zionist programme. The Jewish State was the title of Herzl’s first pamphlet, which had the supreme merit of forcing people to think. This pamphlet was followed by the first Zionist Congress, which accepted the Basle programme – the only programme in existence” Now stabbings are taking place cause Mr David Ben Gurion”s statement and intentions differed radically. Israel was built on lies and deception, it can only be sustained through lies and deception. This post is a classic example.

  3. No. Effendi Mogale, the stabbings are a fulfillment of that genocidal maniac Mohammad’s command to murder Jews issued in 624 CE.
