Medics evacuate an injured police officer at the scene of a stabbing attack at Damascus Gate in the Old City of Jerusalem.

One police officer is in life-threatening condition in Jerusalem’s Shaarei Tzedek Hospital after having been stabbed by an Arab terrorist near Damascus Gate in the Old City. The second officer suffered light to moderate wounds. A third officer was wounded in the crossfire that killed the terrorist.

Doctors said they have stabilized the policeman’s condition but that his life is out of danger.

He and two other riot-control policemen were stabbed Saturday afternoon in the Old City after the terrorist handed over to the policeman his identification card. Other officers shot and killed the terrorist, but a stray bullet lightly wounded another officer.

The attack occurred several hours after police officers shot and killed another Arab teenage terrorist who had stabbed two Hareidi Jews near Damascus Gate, both of them in their 60s. They suffered light to moderate wounds.

  1. Read what the Arab-Israeli Registrar Ahmed Tibi, a pity that the majority do not think so!

    Ahmed Tibi letter,
    By Mustafa Haj Ali Hamdan Ahmed.

    Ahmed Tibi, please note that I am an Arab Muslim. An Israeli citizen. Sick of mind called lie with the Palestinian and Arab restoration time has come and say it openly. We Arabs living in Israel, just Arabs. We have never been “flstinim” because there was no such thing as’ With Flstini”. Never. Most of the Arabs in Israel were born in the State of Israel.

    Our ancestors came from various Arab countries a hundred and twenty years, due to employment and income offered by Jewish farmers or different jobs for the British for thirty years.

    Indeed, a handful of Arabs were here before under Ottoman-Turkish rule. No Palestinians. That handful was gathered to his ancestors and his descendants continue to be Arabs like me.

    The invention of the Palestinian people and the subsequent demand for an independent Palestinian state are a nightmare for me. I do not want to live in an Arab state, not Falasteen.

    Another Arab country will be conducted like any Arab state that any sane Arab-Israeli conflict should oppose it. None of the Arab countries least one state to be democratic.

    No fight-no discrimination.

    I am an Arab-Israeli Muslim who wants to live in Israel, the home of the National Democratic Jewish people which is also my home. As Jews / Arabs / Chinese / living outside their countries of origin to abide by the laws, rules and customs of the place.

    I demand a complete civic equality between me and any other Jew, both rights and obligations. I want to just distribution of resources and fair for all segments of the population. The situation of some of the Arabs in Israel is better than the situation of Ethiopian immigrants, but also those know one option from Arab countries is much worse.

    The struggle of the Arabs against the Jews distinguishes us from Israeli society and requires Jews to discriminate against us negatively. There will be no struggle, there will be no discrimination. very simple.

    I’m not alone. There are many Arabs who think like me secretly and even give it expression in a whisper. It’s not fashionable to speak and write in terms Marbiim- we lived in Israeli society, we studied a chapter or two of the laws of life, sanctifying death brings death and the right to life is a supreme value than anything else.

    I am an Arab Muslim secular Jews who lived among secular if only we take the nonsense that is called Falasteen our lexicon, there will be differences and there should be a difference between us.

    Want an Arab country? -tza Israel!

    It must be admitted, Jews want to live in peace with the Arabs within them. We bother them with all kinds of Arab leaders “slno” only perpetuate the hostility. Enough, wars and now it’s the reality. Tiny State of Israel can and should be a model state and do not care to be called the National House of the Jewish people. I want to live here.

    Does not see the value of an Arab life but an Arab country should go choose a country like this. there is a lot. I do not!

    Even if this land and divided Palestinian state will be established, will not give up the opportunity to lead a democratic State of Israel. I love this country and respect the Jews who built it on the ruins of a desolate wasteland, neglected and abandoned was here.

    The State-Flstin” would be a terrible state. It certainly would not be democratic. You can already see the signs of corruption among the leaders of the pre-Palestine. Who will put them on trial and will sentence them to penalties? The State of Israel to do it. Read newspapers.

  3. At least they killed it instead of wounding. There should be no more woundings; only lethal outcomes. The sooner it is recognized that these are combatants, the sooner the proper responses can commence. Whether anyone states that the third intifada has begun, these attacks state the obvious.
