A Palestinian construction worker at a building site in Modi’in attacked his Jewish manager with a hammer on Tuesday afternoon, leaving him moderately wounded, Israel’s Army Radio reported.

The laborer then attacked another man, who turned out to be an Arab from a different construction site. The second victim was also moderately wounded.

The assailant was arrested and taken to the police station for questioning.

Earlier in the day, a stabbing attack was thwarted in Jerusalem, when police officers patrolling the center of the city noticed a young Palestinian woman behaving suspiciously, and found a screwdriver in her bag. During the initial investigation it emerged that she had intended to use the tool to commit an attack.

These incidents come on the heels of Monday’s car-ramming attack in Jerusalem, which wounded more than a dozen Israelis, among them a baby, who is reported to have lost his leg.

    Quote: The Lubavitcher Rebbe:

    Why are you placing terrorists into prison? Annihilate them!!!“

    You are mistaken in your policy of capturing terrorists and putting them into prison. These terrorists are coming to murder. We have a ruling; “One who comes to kill you, take pre-emptive action – annihilate him!”

    Then the Rebbe added his vision: You will pay dearly for putting them into prison, because in the future you will be beset with assorted demands to strike a ‘deal’ to free them as part of an exchange agreement.
