Israeli Researchers Develop New ALS Treatment

JNS.org - Researchers at Israel’s Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU) announced the development of a new treatment for amyotrophic lateral...

Later reports on Ch. 2 News put the figure at 16 wounded, one critically.

A team of five Prison Service officers, who were driving behind the vehicle as it crossed the Ma’ariv Bridge, noticed the bus’s erratic movement as the driver struggled with and managed to pepper-spray the assailant.

The armed officers, who happened to be en route with prisoners to the city courthouse, chased after the terrorist and shot him in the leg.

“I had just arrived to open my business, and saw the bus stop at the intersection and passengers fleeing the vehicle,” Shlomi, an eyewitness, told Army radio.

“I ran towards the bus and saw police, who must have been chasing the perpetrator,” he said.

“The police fired two shots into the air and began to run. I ran and saw the victims and began to help. Then the police and paramedics arrived.

“There are 20 police cars and 20 ambulances on the scene,” he added.

Police are searching the area for possible accomplices who may have aided the suspect, a 23-year-old Tulkarm resident who was in the country illegally, in reaching the city, police said.

A Hamas official in Qatar, Izzat Risheq, lauded the terror attack, calling it “a brave and heroic act against the Zionists in Tel Aviv.”

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said the attack was “the direct result of the poisonous incitement being disseminated by the Palestinian Authority (PA) against the Jews and their state. This same terrorism is trying to attack us in Paris, Brussels, and everywhere.”

“It is Hamas—the partners [of PA President Mahmoud Abbas] in a unity government—who hastened to commend this attack,” said Netanyahu. “This is the same Hamas that announced it will sue Israel at the International Criminal Court (ICC) in The Hague. Abu Mazen (Abbas) is responsible for both the incitement and the dangerous move at the ICC in The Hague.”

    All Israeli Jews need to be armed with guns.
    Any sane Israeli leader would arm all Jews when dealing with these Arab barbarians

  • Terror
    “Let me explain to you what we – all of us -are up against. Classic warfare is fundamentally a contest of wills fought to impose so much stress on the enemy that he loses the will to fight. A war of terror has the same intent, but with a singularly insidious twist: the enemy can be anybody, anywhere. He is without uniform or identification. His targets are random. His weapon is fear. He knows no constraints. He comes in all guises, often in the dress of his victims. He seeks to shatter nerves and break morale by flaunting the impotence of the authorities to protect their people. He uses his own women and children as his shield. He seeks to goad the defender into ever-harsher counter measures so as to stoke the general hate. He goes all-out to sow despair and to brutalize the agitated hearts of the other side. And in so doing, he strives to corrupt the defender’s military professionalism and discipline through combat stress, demoralization, fatigue, boredom and overkill, the very things we’ve been talking about. Well” – this in a final arpeggio – “no enemy is going to brutalize our hearts, nor corrupt our military professionalism and discipline.

    Bus drivers who are heroes and people who run to the danger area to help others – characteristics of wonderful Israelis, wish we didn’t have these opportunities for these characteristics to show.

  • The Police didn’t kill him bec. they’re afraid of the Israeli court system who are afraid of the UN. Zionism is Golus mentality. Israel will jail, feed and sustain him for five or ten years before freeing him. Where is Jewish pride? Where is common sense????
