A female Arab terrorist wannabe, age 16 but dressed as a much younger schoolgirl, attempted to infiltrate the Jewish community of Karmei Tzur in Judea on Tuesday morning.
The attempt was noticed by a resident of the community, who saw the young Arab female approaching the gate of the community, and noticed that she looked suspicious.
The resident – a woman – alerted the guard to the situation, who then called out to the young terrorist to drop her weapon – a steak knife.
The wannabe terrorist immediately complied and dropped the knife.
Last Friday Arabs from a nearby village in the Palestinian Authority attacked the synagogue at the adjacent outpost of Givat Soreq. The site overlooks the area where searchers found the bodies of three Israeli teens murdered by Hamas terrorists in summer 2014.
The neighboring villagers piled up the Torah scrolls and holy books from the prayer tent and then set them afire.
Residents of Karmei Tzur noted that it was not the first time Arabs in the area had carried out such attacks on their community. But to attack a synagogue and burn its sacred texts to ashes is an especially ugly form of anti-Semitism reminiscent of some of the “darkest events in our history,” they said.
