Eyewitnesses: It was Indeed a Terror Attack
Arutz Sheva ^ | 16/5/11 | Elad Benari and Yoni Kempinski

Posted on 05/16/2011 2:15:46 PM PDT by Eleutheria5

“I stood at the bus stop and saw a speeding truck that caused cars to fly left and right,” said eyewitness Shlomo Gabbai. “It took down a railing and hit cars, until it reached the junction and saw the Egged bus which headed towards it. It turned and stopped right in front of the bus. It hit the bus and then both of them went under the bridge and stopped.”

Sigal, another eyewitness, said: “I stood here and I saw a truck dragging a white car and not letting it go. Then the truck started going in a zigzag. I didn’t even understand that it was an Arab. I started screaming and calling the police. All of this happened right before my eyes. I saw parts flying and I was in total shock. I was completely shaking.”

Gabbai described how the Arab man attacked people who neared him with parts of traffic lights that were lying on the ground after his rampage, said it took 15 minutes until a police officer showed up on the scene.

There's a video of the interviews. Obviously another frenzied convert to the Amish faith has gone bonkers.

Maybe the driver was just trying to find the lavatory.

No, he was Swiss, and in love with the world. It’s customary in Switzerland to throw things at the object of your love.

What they should do with all these animals:

1. Shoot.
2. Bag.
3. Ship to Obongo.

I always thought that bizarre attack by an elderly driver on a Los Angeles farmers’ market a few years ago was intentional, although possibly he had dementia (what I suspect he had was hatred).

But there was a Muslim vehicular attack at a US college a few years ago that killed a number of people, although of course, since the nutcase was a Muslim and screamed Allah akhbar throughout the whole thing, it was never classified as a terrorist attack.

I feel bad for these poor Israelis. This was definitely a terrorist attack. I think there will be more of them in the US, too, because they hate all of us “infidels,” be we Jews or Christians or even pagans.

Two articles worth reading regarding jihadi’s using their cars as weapons.

That was Mohammed Reza Taheri-azar, who attacked a crowd of students at the University of North Carolina on 3 March 2006; the attack injured nine students, none of whom died.

He was tried and sentenced to 33 years in prison, according to this reference.
