Jerusalem: Palestinian Terrorist Drove Car Into Commuters and Kills Two Israelis, Including 6-Year-Old Boy
Palestinian terror groups praise “heroic” the attack, Palestinians hand out candies.
Two Israelis, including a 6-year-old boy, were killed when a Palestinian terrorist rammed a car into commuters waiting near a crowded bus stop in East Jerusalem, the Israeli media report Friday.
“One child was killed and at least 6 others hurt when a car slammed into a bus stop in Jerusalem’s Ramot neighborhood in a suspected ramming attack on Friday,” the Israeli news website Ynet reported. An 8-year-old child injured in the attack is reportedly in critical condition.
The attacker, identified as Hossein Karaka, a 31-year-old Arab-Israeli resident of East Jerusalem, was neutralized by the police on the spot.
“Graphic footage from the scene showed several people strewn on the ground after a blue Mazda vehicle crashed into a bus stop near the Nebi Samuel site, between Jerusalem and the Palestinian city of Ramallah,” The Times of Israel reported. “Several bystanders were seen aiming firearms at the car. Police said the driver was shot dead by an officer who was at the scene.”
The Jerusalem Post reported the terrorist background of the Palestinian attacker:
The terrorist, identified as Hossein Karaka, a 31-year-old resident of the Isawiya neighborhood of east Jerusalem, rammed into a bus stop at the entrance to the Ramot neighborhood.
A Facebook account reportedly belonging to the terrorist posted a series of posts in recent months glorifying Hezbollah and Palestinian terrorists, including a post calling the terrorist who conducted a shooting attack at the Shuafat checkpoint last year a “hero.”
Friday’s terrorist attack occurred two weeks after a Palestinian gunman murdered seven Jewish worshipers leaving an East Jerusalem synagogue.

Like in previous years, Israel faces a wave of terror in the run-up to the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan starting in March. Deadly terror attacks on Israeli streets and rocket barrages from Hamas-controlled Gaza mark the period surrounding Ramadan.
Palestinian Terror Groups Hail the Attack, Palestinians Hand Out Candies
Palestinian terrorist groups, Hamas and PLO-affiliated Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades, hailed another deadly attack on innocent Israelis.
The #Hamas terror organization is praising the attack in Jerusalem, which killed two civilians, including a six-year-old boy, calling it "heroic."

The Israeli TV channel i24news reported the PLO-linked Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades’ response:
The Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades, the military arm of the Fatah movement, released a statement praising the attack: “We welcome the Occupied Jerusalem operation, and see it as a natural response to the crimes of the occupation against our people everywhere, and we confirm that the resistance will continue its activity as long as the occupation remains on our land and desecrates our sanctity.”
Videos and pictures circulating on Twitter showed Palestinians distributing sweets to celebrate the terrorist attack that took the life of a 6-year-old infant, among others.
I can’t even begin to fathom this sickness. The body of a 6 year old Jewish boy, murdered by Palestinian terrorist in today’s Jerusalem car ramming is still warm, and they are already celebrating in Gaza and handing out sweets! pic.twitter.com/4RltfycWLI

Similar scenes were witnessed after the synagogue shooting two weeks ago. Palestinians in Gaza and West Bank were seen handing out sweets, setting off fireworks, and joyfully chanting “Allahu Akbar” to celebrate the murder of innocent Jewish worshippers.
Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.
The news drill used to be (1) foreign tragedies: X people killed, including Y Americans; (2) domestic tragedies: X people killed including Y children.
These days it’s a hybrid. Nobody cares about Americans, probably, even at home. Children are still taken as innocent even if Americans are not, against everybody’s individual experience of being a kid.

To civilized people this is terrorism.
To Palestinians this is business as usual.
As the evil line proffered by Arab Muslim terrorists and their Dhimmi-crat/Leftist allies goes, ” ‘Resistance’ isn’t terrorism.”
All “Palestinian” terrorism is being enabled not just by the supremacist, totalitarian and belligerent pathologies that are inherent to the ideology of “Submission,” but, by utterly despicable and evil Dhimmi-crats and Leftists who grant deference and legitimacy to the contrived propaganda mythology that Jews — who’ve lived in the Middle East for millennia before Submission’s founding — have somehow “stolen” Arab Muslim’s land and are “colonizers” of it.
Worse than business as usual: cause for celebration.
at least the citizens / leo took the sob out right there
condolences to the victims
The only good terrorist is a dead terrorist
Now murder his children.
Sorry I’m just lashing out in anger, but it doesn’t feel like justice.
I get your anger, but it’s not a helpful comment. That’s exactly what the people who cheer him on say we do, and what the people who make excuses for him claim that we want to do.
Don’t give them ammunition for their lies (not that they won’t lie anyway) and don’t set yourself up to be mistaken for one of them.
The globe’s most insidious pests, the Palestinians. Even their Arab brethren in other countries have had enough of them. and their pathetic, self-inflicted misery.
(/sarc) I have been reliably informed that only AR-15 Assault death machines with high-capacity clipazines and folding things that go up can kill civilians indiscriminately.
(/sarc) Also, what’s this blaming the guy: it was one of those assault Civics, lured him into it. Those things are just evil, always lurking, waiting for their chance among the weak minded.
(/sarc) And what’s this “terrorist” label? Peaceful, occupied, oppressed, indigenous guy, so grievance-encumbered he can’t think straight did only limited damage. How many at that parade the other year? Hell, truck-killer-guy in France racked up dozens, Dozens, in France!
(/sarc) And fix the reporting. We all know that guns in civilians’ hands only randomly kill the innocent, bullet-hosing in all directions.
The second shame, after killing people to make a political point — for bog’s sake, just stop it — is that the “/sarc” I say above is what’s sincerely spewed out y in media, commentary, and statements by party and govt officials.
Meanwhile, they’ll blame Trump for this in 3, 2, 1…
And now with $50 million delivered to the PA just in the last week or so by Joe Biden and Tony Blinken, the terrorists family will be paid for
murder. Biden and Blinken aid
abet the behavior, as do the Germans and other Euros. But, hey, The victims were only Jews.
Sad to report that the 6 year old’s 8 year old brother who was badly injured in the ramming attack has now succumbed to his injuries. HY”D (Acronym in Hebrew for Hashem Yinkom Damam- ‘May G-d avenge their blood.)
