An Israeli man was nearly lynched by a group of masked Palestinian rioters this weekend while he was driving in the West Bank south of Jerusalem.

The incident occurred on Saturday on a main road near the Israeli community of Tekoa in the Gush Etzion region. Following a funeral for a terrorist killed during a recent attempted stabbing attack, local Palestinians established an improvised checkpoint and began looking for Israelis to attack.

One Israeli — who came upon the scene before security forces arrived to disperse the rioters and barely escaped with his life — recounted, according to Channel 2, “They smelled me a kilometer away. They had set up a roadblock there, it was impossible to pass. I immediately pulled out my gun and cocked it, so they would see I was armed, but that didn’t stop them at all.”

Fortunately, the man — a Tekoa resident — was able to drive away as the rioters closed in on him.

    This is an evil race, consumed with hatred and jealousy.

    Maybe the time has come for half-tracks to plow through the stone throwers…..& no need to scream ”ALLAHU AKHBAR”

  • Simply they should be persecute, arrested how Israel allow them so much liberty to cover himself and attack people. Had Israel not enough force to arrest them?

    Grateful for the escape of this person, and, for the IDF. Am Yisroel Chai!

    The status quo is surrendering to terrorism. It is a strategy of capitulation and political cowardice. In warfare, and this is war, it never has worked and never will. Time to sit down and come up with a new plan because the present one can only lead Israel over the abyss.
