November 5, 2014 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org – In the second such attack in less than two weeks, today a "Palestinian" Islamic jihadist killed at least one person and injured more than a dozen others as he drove a car into a train platform in East Jerusalem which was clogged with commuters.
In mid October a similar vehicle assault left two dead, one of which was a baby girl.
Fox News is reporting that HAMAS, the Muslim Brotherhood terrorist entity sworn to genocide against the Jews, has expressed support for this indiscriminate act of terrorism against civilians.
"We praise this heroic operation," said Hamas official Fawzi Barhoum. "We call for more such ... operations." [source, One Dead After Car Rams Jerusalem Train Platform In Terrorist Attack , Fox News]
There has been increasing unrest in the Old City of Jerusalem where the Temple Mount site is located, as Muslim express their outrage over any Jewish presence.
This despite the fact that Jewish claims to the site - the most sacred in Judaism - predates that of the Muslims by over a thousand years, dating back to the era of King Solomon.
"Muslim worshippers view Jewish prayer at the site as a provocation, and Israeli authorities place tough restrictions on it. Everyone visiting the area from the Israeli side has to be screened by police…" [source, ibid]
Though Israeli PM Binyamin Netanyahu is laying blame for the escalating tensions at the feet of the Palestinian Authority and HAMAS, Jordan has also been stirring the pot of incitement by withdrawing the country's ambassador.
"Hamas militants said they carried out the attack. PM Benjamin Netanyahu said it was a result of "incitement" by both the Palestinian Authority and Hamas…" [source, Yolande Knell, Jerusalem Attack Netanyahu Blames Incitement, BBC]
In keeping with its increasingly unapologetic anti-Semitism, the BBC pointedly refers to the area as "occupied land" and the new housing being constructed as "settlements" as if Israel didn't have a millennium long prior claim to the holy city.
Though the claim of occupation is technically true, it's not in the sense of BBC's usage, since the so-called Palestinians are actually squatters on Jewish land, Judea and Samaria which traditionally and inarguably have been part of Israel.
