Ironically, possibly on purpose, on the anniversary of former Prime Minister Yitzhaq Rabin's death, there was another attack at a Jerusalem light rail station. Today was the anniversary in the both the Hebrew (12 Heshwan) and Western calendars.
Prime Minister Rabin was one of the main forces behind the Oslo "Death" Accords. Another major force behind the Accords included former President and Prime Minister Shimon Peres.
Over one thousand Jews have been killed since the acceptance of the Oslo "Death" Accords.

A pickup truck rammed into a group of pedestrians waiting for Jerusalem's Light Rail, wounding a number of people, in what seems to be an additional terror attack on Wednesday. The suspected terrorist was identified as a Hamas operative from the east Jerusalem neighborhood of Shuafat.
According to the police a "a vehicle struck a number of people in Jerusalem. Emergency units (are) at two scenes treating injured." Initial reports say that a terror attack has taken place at the Tomb of Simeon the Just (or Kever Shimon haTzadik) Light Rail train station.
According to initial reports, the terrorist first hit a group of security forces that were waiting at a crosswalk and then headed for the train station and continued driving down the street, hitting cars.
He then rammed into a group of pedestrians with his car, leaving one is in serious condition, two with serious wounds, two others in moderate condition and one in light condition.Esser Agaroth (2¢):
The driver then continued to drive hitting a number of cars and then stopped, exited the car holding a metal bar and proceeded to attack additional pedestrians. Border Patrol forces then shot and killed him. (cont.)
YNET's report in Hebrew did not even use the word "terror."
In English it was, but this crap about Shu'afat being in East Jerusalem has got to stop. Shu'afat clearly lies on the west side of the so called "Seam" between west and east. The "Seam" was a happenstance creation, resulting from Israel's War of Independence in 1948/תש"ח. Just because Shu'afat is [currently] as Arab neighborhood, does not magically make it part of the east, when it is in the west.
Furthermore, the report on YNET in Hebrew names the neighborhood in which the Shimon HaTzadiq Neighborhood sits as "Sheikh Jarra," The light rail company's error in name the station in Arabic aside, it is not. What the Arabs call "Sheikh Jarra" lies further north than this neighborhood of Shimon HaTzadiq, a neighbor which has a long history of being Jewish.
One of the results of the War of Independence was the lost of Jewish homes on the eastern, Jordanian-controlled side of the "Seam." In fact, the late, past Sephardi Chief Rabbi Ovadiah Yosef z"l and his family have always had a strong connection to this neighborhood. As a teen, Rabbi Ovadiah Yosef was one of its regular Torah readers.
One of his grandsons, Yehonatan "Yoni" Yosef, so of the late Rabbi Ya'aqov Yosef z"l gives tours of the , recounting the history of the area, from ancient times until now (video).
The tomb is the flashpoint Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood in East Jerusalem. Jewish settlers recently moved into a number of houses in the area, heightening tensions in the already volatile capital. According to initial reports the car hit a Light Rail train station.
YNET's reference is to the recent, purchase of properties in the Silwan neighborhood.
The Jewish Press: Jews Enter Six More Buildings in Silwan Secretly Bought from Arabs Tzvi Ben-Gedalyahu, September 30th, 2014
More than two dozen Jews under heavy police escort moved into six more homes purchased by a Jewish investment company in Silwan Valley, including the City of David complex, in eastern Jerusalem Monday night.
A group of Arabs hurled firecrackers and stones at police in a failed attempt to enter one of the buildings, and one policeman was treated at the scene for head wounds.
Three of the homes are located in the City of David complex, located on the road opposite the Dung Gate that is the entrance to the Western Wall Plaza. At least one of the other homes is situated near the ancient Silwan Pool.
The Jewish Press has learned that approximately two dozen youth moved into the newly-purchased homes as part of a strategy to show an immediate presence prior to families moving in...
...All other questions to Segal and Orenstein were met with a wall of silence, which is the smartest strategy because anything they say will be held against them by Peace Now, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and anyone else who cannot stand to see Jews violating the sacred principles of the holy ”peace process” that demands the expulsion of Jews from the same neighborhood from which the British once expelled them. (cont.)It is a misswah, a Torah Commandment, for us to take possession of the Land of Israel, whether or not the Israeli government stands in the way, or not (Num. 33:50-55).
|PA President Mahmud Abbas (Abu-Mazen) Vision of "Piece."|
By now, you should all know that Arabs put out a "hit" an any Arabs selling their property to Jews. How about that for a "peace partner?"
The Yishma'elim do not want peace; they want "piece." They want a very large piece of Israel. In fact, they want it all.
