Here’s how the official Wafa news agency reported yesterday’s terror attack:

Three Palestinians have been fatally shot by Israeli police in Jerusalem, after they purportedly attacked with gunfire and knives Israeli policemen outside Bab al-Amoud Gate in Jerusalem, seriously injuring two Israeli policewomen, according to local sources.

An Israeli police report stated that two policewomen were seriously wounded in the gunfire and stabbing attacks carried out by three Palestinians identified as Ahmad Rajeh Zakarneh, Mohammad Ahmad Kmail, and Ahmad Najeh Abur-Rob.

WAFA correspondent said that, shortly after the incident, Israeli police sealed off Bab al-Amoud area, along with all the gates of Jerusalem’s Old City. Police reportedly attacked Palestinian locals present there with teargas canisters and stun grenades. [This seems to be made up – EoZ]

On January 26th, the United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said it was “human nature” for Palestinians to react violently to Israel’s nearly 50-year military occupation.

Speaking at the UN Security Council’s Middle East debate, Ban said the new year had begun as 2015 ended, “with unacceptable levels of violence and a polarized public discourse across the spectrum in Israel and the occupied Palestinian territory.”

He added that Israeli security measures were failing to “address the profound sense of alienation and despair driving some Palestinians – especially young people.”

I guess that they didn’t read Ban’s NYT op-ed where he claimed he was in no way justifying terror attacks.

Or perhaps they did, and understood him perfectly.

    Ki-Moon is obviously cosily into the pockets of Islam.

    What the UN SecGen is pointing out is quite, undeniably true observation of facts. It does not JUSTIFY, but it explains.
    Just as Menahem Begin fought violently against the British occupation, so we must expect that after 50 YEARS of simply holding the Palestinians at the end of our rifles, they are going to get fed up and start fighting back with whatever they can. JUST AS WE WOULD. JUST AS WE DID. That is how things work.
    The point is – the Israeli right wing wants to maintain the current situation indefinitely. If the territories are really Israel’s – why not make them part of Israel, as with the Golan Heights and East Jerusalem ? The answer is – the territories contain millions of Arabs. So Israel wants to maintain the no-solution solution indefinitely. But as Arik Sharon stated in his Herzliya speech – you can’t hold another people at the end of your rifle s forever. So time is running our for the status quo the right-wing strives to hang on to. Whether we like it or not, the two-state solution will end up imposing itself on us all, asw the only way to stop the rising violence and bloodshed the status quo is now moving into.

    The profound sense of despair and alienation felt by, particularly young Palestinians, who were brought up to hate and kill Jews could be changed into joy and laughter and feeling of well being and something to live for overnight, if their older leaders were to forget about their deep hatred towards Jews,sit down and draw up a lasting peace treaty with Israel. Their lives would improve drastically with what Israel has to offer. So yes Ban Ki, try that approach for a change, and yes ART, what a catastrophe it would be if Obama (the anti-Semite)became the next Sec General of the UN!!

  • ART

    If you think Ban is bad Obama wants to be the next Sec General of the UN

      Ban ki moon should really read Bernard Lewis” book on the Jews in Moslem lands.(1982) edition. Obama is a Moslem by Islamic tradition. His father was a Moslem and if the father is Moslem so is the child plus he attended a madrassah in Kenya. Can you imagine Obama in the UN. Run for a another country. We’d have another holcust.
