With everything that has gone on in Ottawa today, a terrorist attack in Israel is easily overshadowed but is no less evil.
A convicted Palestinian terrorist rammed his vehicle into a group of civilians at a light rail stop in Jerusalem killing a three month old girl in a stroller and injuring seven others including three American tourists.
The terrorist fled the scene but was shot and killed by police. At this point, it isn’t clear if this terrorist was part of this year’s prisoner exchange or part of the exchange which resulted in the release of Corporal Gilad Schalit. What is clear is that once a Palestinian terrorist, always a Palestinian terrorist. Releasing Palestinian terrorists was supposed to result in peace, but instead it results in more violence against Jews, including a little girl in a stroller.
UPDATE: The girl, who has been identified as Chaya Zissel Braun, is an American citizen. All the Obama Administration has to say to “urge all sides to maintain calm and avoid escalating tensions in the wake of this incident.”
It seems to me that only one side in this conflict sees fit to ram a vehicle into a baby stroller.
