Don’t Mess With The Mayor of Jerusalem

In recent months, there have been a wave of stabbings in Israel by Palestinians.

One such stabbing took place near Jerusalem’s city hall yesterday. What the attacker did not count on was Nir Barkat, the Mayor of Jerusalem. Barkat and his security team were in the area at the time of the attack. Barkat and a member of his security team confronted the attacker and wrestled him to the ground. Barkat then went to the aid of the man who had been stabbed. Fortunately, Avaraham Goldstein sustained only minor injuries in the attack.

But if not for Barkat and his team, the situation could have been much worse.

Barkat has been Jerusalem’s mayor since 2008. Although he was elected with Labor Party support, Barkat is backing Benjamin Netanyahu in next month’s elections.

I have a feeling this won’t be the last we hear of Nir Barkat.
