West Bank: Palestinian stabs 2 soldiers before being shot dead

Rebel Staff

Two Israeli soldiers were wounded when they were stabbed by a Palestinian outside a West Bank settlement on Wednesday.

One of the wounded soldiers fatally shot the assailant, according to the Israeli military.

AP reports that both soldiers were taken to hospital, one in critical condition with a stab wound to the neck.

Similar attacks by Palestinians on Israeli soldiers and Jewish settlers in the West Bank and Jerusalem flared up at the end of 2014, but these areas had been experiencing relative calm before this incident.

Cabinet Minister Naftali Bennett of the nationalist Jewish Home party praised the wounded soldier's quick response.

"This should be the fate of anyone who harms innocent Jews," he said. "This is how such a serious incident must end."

We must learn from the history, if not then we are doomed.
In 1947 British decided the 2 state solution & divided India before giving it full independence. The Pakistan (east & west) was created for mohammedans while the rest in India was declared secular with a mixed population of Hindus, Buddhists, Sikhs, Christians & Mohammedans. There has been no peace in the area since the creation of Pakistan which has failed at every other front & has turned into a full fledge terrorist state.

Everyone keeps talking about a two state solution. That’s absolutely ridiculous. I know that’s a very politically-incorrect thing to say, but how can a two state solution ever work if embedded in the charter of one of those states is the clear unambiguous declaration that the other state should not be allowed to exist? There will not be a solution any time soon.

Nasty business.
