Stabbing Attack in Old City
“Last night [August 17, 2020], in the Old City of Jerusalem, a terrorist attacked and stabbed a Border Police soldier. Luckily, the other soldiers responded quickly, shot and killed him.
This morning the footage was already on the various news sites.
The publication took 12 hours.
Nearly 3 months ago, not far away, Iyad al-Hallak, a young autistic Jerusalemite, was shot and killed.
According to testimony, he was not shot in one place, but as part of a chase that ended in a garbage room near the Lions Gate.
To this day we have not seen this footage.
I do not think there is a more photographed place in the country than the Old City.
Two and a half months ago I wrote that it is disturbing, today I write that it is scary.
A society that wants life, needs to know how to cope.
Even with mistakes, if made, and also – and I pray not – with malice if there will be,
hiding is never the way.
I wish the wounded warrior a full recovery, and wish us all better days.”
