After Failed Attack in Jerusalem Hamas Releases ‘How to Stab Jews’ Clip (VIDEO)
After a failed stabbing attack against two border policemen in Jerusalem’s Old City on Friday, Palestinians have published a training video entitled “How to stab right,” Israel’s NRG News reported Sunday.
In the attack, which took place after Muslim prayers, one officer was stabbed in the neck, and the other in the hand. Both were treated for their wounds in a Jerusalem hospital and are recovering.
The attacker fled after scuffling with police after the failed attempt.
“This was a serious event in which police officers were injured. The Jerusalem police will find the assailant,” vowed District commander, Maj.-Gen. Moshe Edri.
In the video, which shows a masked instructor holding a knife and a masked “victim,” the assailant demonstrates how to stab in order to cause maximum injury to the victim.
The instructor displays several knife attack techniques, including twisting the knife to inflict maximum harm, and how an attacker can quickly stab and flee the scene.
The YouTube clip became an immediate hit among Palestinian Facebook and Twitter groups in Jerusalem, and the West Bank.
The video ends by urging viewers to carry out similar attacks: “What are you waiting for? Go out and stab.”
Hamas, in the past, has used such video clips as psychological warfare tools intended for Israeli audiences, including one exhorting, “Rise up and carry out attacks,” to martial Arab music. Unfazed Israelis, however, quickly layered on mocking soundtracks, including a capella versions and even one interspersing clips from the Lion King animated film.
Watch the graphic clip. There is no gore, but some viewers may find the intensity disturbing:
