The Israeli soldier critically wounded in a stabbing attack at an intersection near the West Bank village of Beit Anoun on Monday regained consciousness on Wednesday morning after being in a medically induced coma.

Remarkably, he remembered many of the details of his brush with death, Israeli Channel 2 reported.

From his bed at the Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem, Sgt. Gilad described being stabbed and – while bleeding profusely – shooting and killing his attacker.

In Surprise, Israeli City of Netanya Set to Host 2018 World Lacrosse Championships

JNS.org - Miriam Feirberg-Ikar, mayor of the Israeli city of Netanya, and Israel Lacrosse Association (ILA) Chairman Scott Neiss announced...

Hospital staff told Channel 2 that what saved Gilad’s life was the emergency treatment he got from paramedics at the attack site, as well as the swift action of police, who cleared traffic for the ambulance to pass.

According to Channel 2, this was not the first time Gilad’s family has been summoned to the hospital under dire circumstances. Just over a year ago, Gilad’s brother was critically wounded during Operation Protective Edge in Gaza, but survived.

The terrorist who stabbed Gilad was later identified as Raed Jaradat. According to Palestinian Media Watch, Jaradat was honored late Monday on the official Facebook page of Fatah, the organization dominating the Palestinian Authority in Ramallah.

The post reads as follows: “The path of the struggle Palestinian National Liberation movement Fatah, North Hebron branch, escorts its Martyr (Shahid) son to his wedding, Raed Saket Abd Al-Rahman Jaradat who carried out the stabbing operation at the Bet Anoun Junction.”

PMW explains that the reference to the terrorist’s “wedding” is an allusion to “the Islamic belief that martyrs marry 72 virgins in Paradise.”

  • Islamic disinformation, deception and intentional lies are permitted and in fact promoted under the Muslim Qur’an and Sharia law.
    Therefore, we should be suspect of any and all information coming out of any Arab-Muslim sources. All statements by Arab-Muslims must be held suspect until thoroughly verified.
    Deception, fraud and gross exaggeration are a way of life for the Muslims. Promises are not kept. Terror and violence is a fundamental premise. Their leaders subjugate the masses by inciting them against non-Muslims, and even against their own Muslim people.
    In the past 1500 years the Muslims have eliminated over a half a billion people and the death toll is increasing daily. Muslim promoting, financing and supporting terrorism is endangering the safety and security of the entire world. Muslims at large bring instability and insecurity to the non-Muslim people in the world. Over 90% of world conflicts today involve Muslims.
    The Muslims promote death and destruction and destroy any remnants of previous history which factually disproves their false teachings, and which contradicts their beliefs and agenda.
    When will the world-at-large wake-up and realize that all non-Muslims are in danger of losing life and liberty if we do not take immediate, proactive action to stem, and eliminate the growing terror and violence?
    A unified world with allied forces implementing full intelligence gathering and sharing, and security cooperation must be set-up to confront and end the unbridled Muslim terror and violent, genocidal Muslim activities.
    If the silent Muslim majority does not act to curb the extreme, radical Muslim agenda, they must be considered as complicit in all of the extreme Muslim activities; and thus, be held accountable. Fundamental “Common Law” dictates such “complicity” as guilt.
    The Media, which is always looking for sensationalism is only adding fuel to the fire, and is in fact accelerating the increase of terror and violence. Any media found guilty of such incitement should be held accountable.
    Muslim extremism has constantly made known its’ intent to kill, and subjugate all “non-believers”. World domination is the goal of Muslim extremism. As such, it is time for the world to unite, and finally put an end to this insidious nemesis once and for all. To do otherwise is to simply kneel and wait for the Muslim sword to fall and to behead us all.

    While Sgt. Gilad wakes to discover he has been given new life, the islamic moron who stabbed him, and got shot dead for his efforts, has been introduced to his new task of shoveling hot coals for his new master, Satan, and is also contemplating that this will be going on forever.

  • So grateful for this young man’s life & for his courage. He is the hero!

    If Israel wants to stop terrorist attacks it needs to start feeding dead terrorists to pigs. Spaniards in the Philippines used to bury Moro rebels in pigskins to deny them entrance into Muslim heaven. Later in Philippine history Americans Marines took up the practice. Seems the celestial whorehouse that is Muslim heaven is closed to martyrs tainted by pork.

    I want the world to read what the Palestinian Authority commends and what the Israeli people commend. Look at the reality of the situation here in Israel. An Israeli soldier is almost killed by a Palestinian for being a Jew, and the leadership of the Palestinians donors the would-be murderer by referring him to as a martyr. What did he sacrifice himself for? He attempted to murder someone to show what, to do what, to signify what?What was his language . . . death? How does any human being converse with death? How can there ever be peace when so many people–the Palestinian media, curricula, leadership, and more than half go the people–believe in a death cult? there is no country on earth that can make peace with people who manifest such a mentality.
