JNS.org – A Palestinian terrorist stabbed a 16-year-old Israeli man in Jerusalem on Friday, and within less than an hour another Palestinian stabbed a policeman in Kiryat Arba as the wave of Palestinian terrorist attacks continued to spread throughout Israel.

The 16-year-old Jewish victim in Jerusalem was stabbed in his upper body and was lightly injured. He did not immediately realize he had been stabbed and tried to chase his assailant, who fled, only to be apprehended by police who were combing the area. The victim was taken to Hadassah Hospital for treatment, Israel Hayomreported.

Minutes later, police received word of the second attack, in Kiryat Arba. An Israeli policeman was lightly wounded when his attacker tried to snatch his service weapon, but the terrorist was killed before he could succeed. Later Friday, a female Palestinian terrorist tried to stab a security guard stationed at the entrance to the Afula central bus station. The terrorist was shot and seriously hurt. She was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment.

The ongoing string of Palestinian terrorist attacks also sparked Jewish retaliation on Friday, as a Jewish perpetrator from Dimona stabbed four Arabs, three of them municipal workers in the southern city. Two of the victims were lightly injured and two were moderately-to-seriously hurt in the attack. The attacker, who has a history of drug-related arrests, was apprehended.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu condemned the attack, saying, “I categorically condemn any attempt to hurt innocent Arabs….Israel is a state of law and order. We will prosecute to the fullest extent of the law anyone who engages in violence and violates the law, on either side.”

In contrast, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas has praised the Palestinian “struggle to defend Al-Aqsa mosque,” rather than condemning Palestinian terrorism.

Later on Friday, hundreds of Palestinians violently rioted near the Israel-Gaza border fence. Israel Defense Forces troops fired at rioters who had approached the no-go buffer zone enforced on the Gaza side of the fence. Five Palestinians were killed in the incident and 35 others were wounded. The Gaza-ruling terrorist group Hamas had declared Friday to be a “Day of Rage” against Israel.

    1. Step One Close off the PA cities as in 2002. We are waiting for the first suicide bomber to this. Be proactive not reactive.

    2. Apply Levy Report. Build wherever practical in Judah/Samaria. Annex all Jewish Towns. Not Arab Towns.

    3. Kick all Pal workers in Israel from territories out of Israel.

    4. Grab Abbas and all PLO, Islamic Jihad, Hamas leaders and either arrest them or deport them.

    5. Any terrorists caught will be sentenced to the maximum penalty and after the sentence is up they will deported. There families will be deported now. Their houses will be boarded up and or blown up.

    6. The Islamic Movement inside of Israel will be made illegal. Anyone joining it will be jailed. Its leaders who have been instigating riots will be jailed NOW.

    7. Jews will control and access completely to the Temple Mount. Any Arab causing trouble on it will be barred for life. Israeli Jews will be free to pray on the mount. We allow the Muslims to run their mosques on the Mount provided they are not used as weapon and/or attack centers.
