Crane Attack in Israel Kills One Civilian

Today in Jerusalem there was a terrorist attack of sorts, a Palestinian took control of a track-hoe, except it has wheels not tracks. I'm not sure what to call that.

A male pedestrian approximately 30 years old was run over by the tractor as it headed toward the bus and was killed. The tractor driver, identified as East Jerusalem resident Muhammed Naif El-Ja’abis, turned the bus over onto its side during the attack, making several efforts to do so before he succeeded. The bus driver as well as five others were lightly hurt.

Police said the attack, which took place at the end of Shmuel Hanavi Street, near the Olive Tree Hotel, was nationalistically motivated.

A police officer and Prisons Service official who realized what was happening ran up to the tractor and fired a volley of shots at the terrorist as he sat in the cab and killed him, Jerusalem police chief Yossi Pariente said.

Here is video of the attack and of Israeli police stopping the attack.

He's dead, Jim?

Yup, He's dead Jim!

Of course there will be no outrage from Hamas over the death of the Israeli civilian. They've declared every single living Jew a legitimate target, its only "wrong" when they die. See how this works?
