Arab terrorists, ages 13 and 15, chasing victim in Pisgat Ze'ev - both brandishing knives.

According to a report broadcast on Israel’s Channel 10 television news, the 13-year-old Arab terrorist who attacked two people in Jerusalem’s Pisgat Ze’ev neighborhood last month won’t sit in jail.


Ahmed Manasara and his 15-year-old cousin attempted to murder a Jewish boy two months away from his 13th birthday, and a 25-year-old Jewish man, both of whom were stabbed both multiple times. He is to be arraigned in court this morning (Nov. 11.)

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.

  1. Oh I see; he will turn his life around, become a Nobel Prize winner and better humanity. Then, with his love for his fellow humans, he will. . . . . Wait a minute. Whoever is in charge of this dog and pony show really needs better medication because their version of reality doesn't exist. At some point, this criminal will end up killing a person and then a bullet will have to be expended to eliminate him. Any terrorist caught in an act of terror should be shot dead on the spot. No age or gender consderations, no questions, no mercy. They have no mercy for anyone and none should be accorded them. It is the old truism: live by the sword; die by the sword. Everything else is just commentary.

  2. Well, here in America, a ten-year-old, a seven-year-old, can be tried and imprisoned as an adult, depending upon the nature and the severity of the crime. It sounds like you guys need to change your liberal stance, and make petitioning for trial as an adult a part of your Legal Code.

    In the Tanakh, it appears to be the gist of it, that at about 12.5 years of age, is when you are responsible for all of your actions, as an adult.
