Four Israeli soldiers were murdered and at least 16 people were wounded, some seriously, when an Arab resident of eastern Jerusalem rammed his truck into pedestrians near Jerusalems Armon Hanatziv Promenade.
Armon Hanatziv, also known as East Talpiot, is located in southeastern Jerusalem, part of the eastern sections of Jerusalem declared occupied Palestinian territory by a United Nations Security Council resolution last month.
The promenade, a popular tourist site enjoyed for its spectacular views of Israels capital, is located about half a mile from the plot of land upon which the U.S. has been building a consulate that could serve as a future embassy if the current embassy is moved from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told reporters at the scene of the attack: We know the identity of the attacker. All signs point to the attacker being a supporter of the Islamic State.

Hopefully, O'muslimname & the other Muslim Brotherhood jihadist in Washington DC will soon no longer be in positions to empower their Islamic State co-religionists.
I hope that the Israelis bulldoze not only the houses of the dead jihadist’s immediate family but also the houses of his more distant relatives — out to third cousins. Let the Muzzies get the message VERY clear.
If that happened in our country for a week or so we would still be at the - it is possible the driver suffered a medical condition - or it might have been a vehicle malfunction, - or an example of reckless driving, - or an driver under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
The Israelis are much quicker to jump to conclusions it is Islamic inspired terrorism. -tom
My son is there. Says he is safe.
No names yet, I see. First sign of an incident I got was going back home from Jerusalem with wife and two grandkids (doctor visit). On our way through the Giloh tunnels, an ambulance passed by the other way doing ‘60 with its sirens screaming. Figured it was with a victim of an incident in the Gush Etzion area, but then we heard about the ramming, and I’m waiting for names to see if it’s anyone we know, and also to list the fatalities on Bli Teven (http://www.bliteven.org), the web site my son and I are building with a comprehensive list of people murdered for their Jewishness. He does code. I do content.
the world needs a general Turgedson to NUKE iran,
Logical results of “The Great ObamaNation’s” UN non-vote.
Or . . .
He was a moderate who just happened to have a freak accident where the accelerator stuck and the breaks failed at the same time.
I fear we will see more of this Truck/Bus/car ramming in the future. It may well reach a point that no Muslim should be permitted to live, work, or drive in Israel. Yes, Jews will have to clean their own toilets (or import Christians to do the job) but—it may come to this to be safe.
This IS the site of the Embassy in Jerusalem. Within 100 yards. Abbas said moving the Embassy was a red line, zero doubt in my mind this was a message to Trump.
Trump could easily send a message to Abbas after the inauguration ..... no money & NO SUPPORT from the U S State Department ...
