Palestinian Muslim runs over four Israeli border policewomen and a cyclist, then assaults them with knife before being shot.
Times of Israel Five people were injured Friday morning in a car-ramming terror attack near a Jerusalem Light Rail station in the north of the city. Four of the wounded were young border policewomen, in their twenties, and the fifth was a civilian bicycle rider in his fifties.

A Palestinian man in a private vehicle hit the five as they stood on a sidewalk. He was identified as Mohammad Salima, 21, from east Jerusalem’s Ras al-Amud. After the car attack, he then emerged from the vehicle with a butcher’s knife and attempted to stab passersby, but was swiftly shot and incapacitated by a Border Policeman and a Light Rail security guard at the scene.

They were treated at the scene by paramedics before being evacuated to the hospital. Two more border policewomen were treated at the scene for shock. Salima was seriously injured and taken to the hospital.
Friday’s attack mirrored a spate of similar assaults on Israelis involving cars late last year, in the same part of Jerusalem. (See below links)
In late October a Palestinian from east Jerusalem, who had served prison time for terror activities, slammed his car into a train platform in that part of the city, killing a baby girl and a young woman from Ecuador. Two weeks later, a Palestinian man rammed his car into a crowded train platform in East Jerusalem and then attacked people with an iron bar, killing one person and injuring 13. Both attackers were shot by police and died of their wounds.
What has become an annual event, about 50 left wing whackjobs from Code Pink and other anti-Israel groups stormed the Washington Convention Center, blocking at least one entrance to AIPAC (American Israel Public Affairs Committee). Police made several arrests and had to physically drag several of the terrorist supporters out of the building.
Popular Resistance Also seen was the yellow flag of Hezbollah as well as the usual group of Rent-a-Rabbis (funded by Iran) who are anti-Israel at the annual American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC). Many were wearing Netanyahu masks and proclaiming him a war criminal, comparing Israel to ISIS, while others blockaded the doors resulting in arrests.

On Monday, March 2, 2015 from 6:00 – 9:00PM they will protest at the Washington Convention Center during Netanyahu’s AIPAC speech (801 Mt Vernon Pl, NW Washington DC). Activists will hold a protest and candlelight vigil to commemorate the Muslim lives lost in the Hamas-instigated war with Israel in 2014.
Saying, “We won’t let Islamic extremists intimidate Israel and turn it into another Islamic State,” Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman instructed Yisrael Beytenu party activists to buy thousands of copies of Charlie Hebdo’s ‘survivors’ issue’ after Israel’s largest bookstore chain decided not to stock it in order not to incite Muslim rage.
Times of Israel “We will not allow Islam to intimidate us and turn Israel into a country that surrenders to Muslim threats and harms our freedom of expression,” said Avigdor Lieberman.
In their decision, the judges wrote that distributing the magazine was “legitimate election propaganda” and did not constitute a prohibited gift, as the elections committee had argued. The court said that allowing the initiative would not pose a realistic threat to the integrity of the elections process, while preventing it would be a blow to freedom of speech.
Israel’s national elections are scheduled for March 17.
Liberman welcomed the ruling, claiming victory against Arab Knesset members who were against the magazine’s circulation because its front cover featured a cartoon drawing of the Prophet Muhammad.
“The High Court’s decision to allow the distribution of Charlie Hebdo is an important message that Israel remains a Jewish and democratic state and that we shouldn’t give in to threats and violence by Arab members of Knesset who are trying to turn Israel into another Islamic State country,” he said.
The Central Elections Committee had ruled earlier in February against Yisrael Beytenu’s plan to distribute complementary copies of Charlie Hebdo, saying such action constituted illegal gift-giving to voters. Explaining his decision at the time, committee head Justice Salim Joubran said giving out the magazine would constitute election propaganda.
Arab parties had petitioned against the move, citing election regulations but also the danger of infuriating Israel’s Muslim population due to the cover.
Liberman had ordered his party activists to buy up and hand out copies of the “survivors’ issue” of the satirical magazine, featuring a caricature of the Prophet Muhammad, after a local bookstore backed out of selling it at the last minute.
Charlie Hebdo has in the past angered some Muslims by printing caricatures of Muhammad. The issue released in mid-January drew widespread protests across the Muslim world, including in Gaza.
