Thousands of rock-throwing attacks have been carried out by Palestinians since the start of the current terror wave, Israel’s Channel 2 reported on Wednesday.

Channel 2 marked the September 13 stoning of Alexander Levlovich’s car — and subsequent death of the motorist, who drove into a pole as a result — as the beginning of the surge in Palestinian violence that has been directed at Israelis on a daily basis.

According to the report, in the three months since that date, there have been 2,225 rock attacks — an average of 24 per day.

Following the attack on Levlovich on the even of Rosh Hashanah, another 290 incidents of rock-throwing were carried out in the second half of September. In October, the number rose dramatically — to 915 attacks — and slightly decreased in November, when there were 730. Thus far in December, there have been 290.

    Quote: The Lubavitcher Rebbe

    One who approaches to kill you, pre-empt and eliminate him!

    There is a Torah obligation quoted in the Talmud [Sanhedrin 102.1] “One who approaches to kill you– pre-empt– and eliminate him!”

    One can understand two points from this law:

    [1] The legal decision refers to a situation when one indeed knows that he is approaching with the intent to kill you.

    [2] Upon realizing that his intent is to kill you, one must not wait until he approaches you in combat, rather, pre-empt and eliminate him. These two points give us clear direction in our times. How can one be certain what is in the heart of this gentile? Surely no-one can know what is stirring in the heart of another?! Regarding this situation the Torah says– by recognizing the overall circumstances one can indeed know with certainty that his intent is to kill you. When one knows the education he has been subjected to; by knowing his activities of yesterday and of today– one can be certain without any shadow of doubt that his intent is “to kill you”.

    Now that one knows that he is approaching “to kill you”; do not wait until he approaches you in combat, for then, G-d forbid, it may be too late, rather it is imperative that you must pre-empt the situation and eliminate him. Those that act it this way – they must not be labeled as spillers of blood; but this is the legal imperative of Torah– “One who approaches to kill you – pre-empt – eliminate him!”
