Israel: Mother, newborn injured in attack; poll confirms most Palestinians support stabbings

Igal HechtIsrael Correspondent

A terrorist who carried out a car ramming attack on Monday was a member of Hamas.

Among the seven injured in the attack, were a newborn baby and his mother. In a separate incident, an Israeli-Jew and a Palestinian resident of Jerusalem were also injured when one of their co-workers attacked them.

On Monday, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas referred to the last three months of violence as a justified popular uprising a view which is shared by a large percentage of Palestinians as reflected in a new poll released on Monday.

The results of this poll show the Palestinian people have little interest in settling the conflict which is not surprising considering their own leaders have encouraged them to believe that terrorism and violence will lead them to defeat Israel.

Is it true that over the past ten years eight times as many Palestinians have been killed in Israel and the West Bank than Jews? The media gives the impression that Jews are being killed or injured disproportionately. Is this what we call the “left-wing media?” Are eight times more Palestinians killed than Jews?

These Palestinians would make great refugees to Obama’s America.

When you think of the number of Israelis and Palestinians killed over the last few years… Oops, sorry, I guess five times as many Palestinians have been killed.
I was going to say that the two parties could seek a solution together.

You would think progressives would have learned that Palestinian hydrophobia exceeds any reason when Sirhan murdered Bobby Kennedy over supporting Israel. Progs people reject truth like a poison.

There is only one answer, The Jews need to ban all Muslims from Israel, with the warning that if they come near, they will be shot. This is the only thing Muslims understand, but being Muslims they will resort to hiding behind Women and Children, just as they do when they launch their missiles.
The Jewish fuse must be getting very short.

Progressives hate Israel because Israel does not take this sh*t from fanatics.

And as always the trolls are absent, they hate reality.

I wonder how the CBC and the rest of the media party will explain how that newborn deserved this to happen. Past Life Sins?

I want to thank you for your reports.

It actually WILL serve the Palestinians to solve their problem – by causing Israel to enact the 1922 San Remo Agreement, the only legally binding agreement on the division of the territory. The lefties will get the vapors over it for a while, but it’s the only long-term viable solution, and the only one with a legal basis.

An entire race of people, the Palestinians, that want more than anything else to destroy Israel and all the Jews in it. Those responsible for brainwashing the people like that will pay for the evil they have done.

Israel never should have handed over the Gaza strip. I think they should take it back, given that these animals don’t want peace, and in stead want to exterminate the Jewish people. Well it will never happen, God will never allow it! God bless Israel!
