An attack perpetrated last Friday against a mother and her children in Central Israel could have ended in tragedy, after an Arab man threw a Molotov cocktail at the family’s car, causing a fire to breakout.  Luckily for the woman and her children inside the flaming vehicle, her husband, Dvir Koula, was able to put out the fire, arriving just in time to rescue his family.

“Jewish blood is not free for the taking,” reads a statement from the local Jewish community’s Garin Torani.  Garin Torani members are fervent Zionists who work to spread Jewish culture in the areas in which they live. “That is not just a cliché – we will ensure that Jewish life, and the lives of those in the Garin, is not freely taken.”

Koula and his family live in the city of Ramla, where Jews and Arabs live together, and where the Ayalon prison in Israel is located.

According to Koula, the attack on his wife and children was an attempt at murder, and not simply vandalism.

Suspects in the case were arrested, according to numerous Israeli media accounts.
