Another East Jerusalem resident used a tractor as a terroristic weapon today in Jerusalem. Once again the attack was near the center of the city, this time focusing on the area near the King David Hotel where Barack Obama will be later today. I still don’t understand the desire to solve a problem by trying to kill people. I don’t think I will ever understand it, for such a perspective is not part of who I am.
I only have a few minutes as I post this, so I am keeping it short. Here are some links:
Ha’aretz story on the attack, Jerusalem Post on the attack, reactions of Obama and Abu Mazzen to the attack (also Ha’aretz),
