Deja Vu, Another Terror Ramming

Every time an Arab terrorist uses a vehicle as a weapon against Israelis/Jews, I feel an ache. Over twenty years ago, I was most probably the very first to be injured by an Arab terrorist who drove his vehicle into a group of Jews waiting at a bus stop. Nobody can remember such a terror attack before "mine." The Israeli police tried to claim that it was an "accident," but we managed to convince them that nobody "accidentally" makes a sharp turn onto a sidewalk and another sharp turn to mow down shocked, unprepared innocent people.

Why am I writing about these terror attacks again? It's because right before Shabbat, there was another terror ramming attack.

An IDF officer and a soldier were killed and two additional soldiers were injured in a car-ramming attack adjacent to Mevo Dotan in Samaria on Friday afternoon.
The injured soldiers were taken to the hospital for medical treatment, said the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit.
The Arab terrorist initially fled the scene but was later caught. The IDF said he was injured and was taken to the hospital. He is being questioned and IDF troops are searching the area.
Recently this has become much too common, and that is because it really is easy. And there aren't any totally effective ways to prevent these ramming attacks.

All we can do is to stay alert, keep our eyes on the traffic. And when we're waiting, we should "case the joint," look and see where we can find protection. And of course we must always pray to Gd. Gd can protect us, but we must do our part.

Refuah Shleimah, a full and speedy recovery to the injured.

Harvard Law Professor Alan M. Dershowitz said:

“The world may have to deal with terrorists
in order to save lives. But the moral scandal
is that in addition to simply dealing with these
terrorists, much of the world has HONORED them.

The standing ovation accorded to Yassir Arafat –
the architect of international terrorism – by
many UN representatives in Geneva in 1988 will
live in infamy.

The willingness of world statesmen – including
the pope and other moral leaders – to treat
Arafat as a person deserving of tribute
is beyond moral comprehension.”

Yes, there is a way to minimize these horrific acts of 'war'. The way to do that is not to coddle the perpetrators but to show them no mercy as they show to the innocent victims of their terror. When you are at war, there is only one way to act and that is to go out and WIN! That's the way it has been since time immemorial and will be until Moshiach Tzdkeinu comes and then and only then will there be true peace in the Olam.

True, the terrorists are the darlings of the world, and we are condemned for surviving and protecting ourselves.
