Video: Palestinian bulldozer attack kills 2 in Jerusalem

posted at 9:59 am on July 2, 2008 by Ed Morrissey

It would have killed more, too, if an IDF soldier hadn’t acted quickly.  Somehow appropriating a firearm, he jumped into the cockpit — where a police officer was already struggling with the attacker — and killed the driver with a point-blank burst. A look at the wreckage left in the bulldozer’s wake will give viewers an idea of the violence in this attack:

Two people were killed and more than 30 injured when a Palestinian man rammed a bulldozer into a bus and a car in Jerusalem on Wednesday before he was shot dead, medics and police said.

Police described the incident as a terror attack.

This looks more like a spontaneous attack than anything with extensive planning. Either that, or Palestinian terrorists have run low on explosives this summer.

The first thing they need to do is ban bulldozers or set up a licensing scheme. People don’t kill people, bulldozers kill people.

Bulldozers don’t kill people, crazy ass Palestinians with bulldozers kill people.

It’s really not a bulldozer, its a front end loader.

This is a typical attack, use some innocuous vehicle or method of delivering death.
School bus, mentally retarded, elderly, school age kids, box cutter…no I have to disagree, this fits the mentality of the terrorist. Use what’s common, available, the ordinary, and make it a killing machine.
IDF is a hero, he took a gun and killed the b*stard, he did the right thing. No trial, no martyr, just a body to bury.

I’m guessing opportunity came up. Maybe the ability to get explosives is not so opportune, but I suspect we’ll see a few more of these.

The article on Yahoo said that the Palestinian who did this probably only had an Israeli ID, never mentioning that he was more than welcome to get Israeli citizenship as are all Palestinians living in Israel. I guess that’s neither here nor there for the Media.

Good on the IDF officer. Although I suspect the newsmedia will say “Brutal, insane, gun wielding Israeli soldier stops innocent Palestinian from earning a living by shooting him in the head.”

The left will condemn Hamas and Islamic Jihad for the use of a fuel guzzling bulldozer, then they will go after the IDF for being Judge, Jury and Executioner.

I think you’re right. When I was wandering through Jerusalem and Eliat, there were Israeli kids (18, of course) running around with their guns in full view.

Oh, mofo, if Palestinians can come up with soaking shrapnel in rat poison, killing people in a pizzeria, shooting kids in a Yeshiva, ramming bomb-laden cars into checkpoints, I suspect they can come up with all sorts of ways to kill Jews.

BBC America is deftly calling him an “Israeli Arab” which, according to them, means that he has free access all over Israel.

No one doesn’t. It came from the same deranged source which encourages suicide bombers since this was essentially a suicide mission. If you’re trying to blame Israelis for the tool used, it’s a pretty long reach.

Sue on July 2, 2008 at 10:42 AM

The JP reports…

Finally, an off-duty soldier took a gun from a security guard at the scene and shot the terrorist, who cried “Allah Akhbar” (God is great) before being killed. The soldier, Moshe Plesser, was assisted in neutralizing the attacker by Eli Mizrahi, a member of police’s elite Yasam anti-terror unit.

The gun was “borrowed” from a security guard not a member of the the elite police unit.

Different country, different laws, different environment. There will be no investigation or talk of charges against the IDF soldier.

If an off-duty US soldier did the same thing in this country, our police would have to investigate. The laws require it. But you and I both know he wouldn’t be charged with anything. His actions would be found justified. Let’s not go borrowing trouble.

Nope. Remember how the guy who went into the Yeshiva was stopped? IDF/police guy went in and shot him in the head. No punishment for him either. When you have to stop someone, you have to stop them.

Who knows how many people would be dead without the quick action of these brave men?

Reminds me of another bulldozer rampage from the side of the “civilized”:
“For three days, I just destroyed and destroyed. The whole area. Any house that they fired from came down. And to knock it down, I tore down some more. They were warned by loudspeaker to get out of the house before I come, but I gave no one a chance. I didn’t wait. I didn’t give one blow, and wait for them to come out. I would just ram the house with full power, to bring it down as fast as possible. I wanted to get to the other houses. To get as many as possible. Others may have restrained themselves, or so they say. Who are they kidding ? Anyone who was there, and saw our soldiers in the houses, would understand they were in a death trap. I thought about saving them. I didn’t give a damn about the Palestinians, but I didn’t just ruin with no reason. It was all under orders.
“Many people where inside houses we started to demolish. They would come out of the houses we where working on. I didn’t see, with my own eyes, people dying under the blade of the D-9. and I didn’t see house falling down on live people. But if there were any, I wouldn’t care at all. I am sure people died inside these houses, but it was difficult to see, there was lots of dust everywhere, and we worked a lot at night. I found jo with every house that came down, because I knew they didn’t mind dying, but they cared for their homes. If you knocked down a house, you buried 40 or 50 people for generations. If I am sorry for anything, it is for not tearing the whole camp down.”

This bulldozer rampge didn’t get nearly as much media coverage as today’s, for some reason.

Well, yes and no … In numerous American cities, if an off-duty American serviceman/woman carrying a concealed handgun shot and killed a criminal or terrorist in the act, he or she would definitely need a lawyer, regardless of the courage and correctness of the act. New York City; Washington, DC; San Francisco immediately come to mind.

Limerick on July 2, 2008 at 11:25 AM

I heard a reference to this type of Muslim attack. It was called “ad hoc” or “lone wolf” jihad. No planning amongst a cell or in your local mosque or getting directions from a cave in Afghanistan. Just grab something, drive something, start killing people (preferably Jews then Americans but, crap, anything infidel will do. And don’t forget that children are equal opportunity infidel targets too!). Then off you go with pictures of virgins in nightgowns and teddies dancing your head.
How will the Obamamessiah and the rest of the lefty cowards respond to this? How would they? With great ineffectiveness (but with really great emoting!!! I mean no one , but no one emotes more effusively than lefties) that will lead to more attacks and death of innocents.
I fully expect that this type of attack will be coming to America. I’m surprised it hasn’t happened yet.
This is one more reason I carry a firearm. With a second clip.

Next for Dave 742:
Pictures of that old lady in Beirut with fifteen homes, the smoke replicating itself all over Beirut (despite the photographer trying to photoshop the dust off), and the IAF jet firing tons of flares.

Maybe also the Sabra and Shatilla massacres perpetrated by Christian Philangists (Arab Christians), but blamed on the Israelis for not realizing that maybe Arab Christians would have a bone to pick with Palestinians for a few killings here and there. Then maybe Etzion Bloc (oh, wait not that one. The only people killed in that were Jews so don’t count). Then maybe the Munich Massacre (oh, wait Jews). Or maybe the Al-Dura thing (Oh, wait, he was killed by Palestinians – never mind).

Yeah, Jenin – it’s a terrorist rathole. Just like Gaza, Bethlehem, Bethany, Jericho, Ramallah, etc, etc etc.

Israelis, surely, are a too patient and too generous people.

Dave742 thank you for your fantasy story regarding Jenin, where in order to avoid real civilian casualties, instead of simply dropping 2000 pound iron bombs like most every other country in the world, we lost EIGHTEEN of our finest young men going house to house in a terrorist wonderland where ‘civilians’ armed with AK47s & RPGs used the common cooking propane tanks attached to every home, to setup booby traps in order to slaughter & maim the Jews.

Your mother should slap you in the face for being such a cretin. You know, two buses full of people were just flattened by an Arab who was given a life, employment and full access to Israel. So go educate yourself & let us mourn our real civilian dead and wounded in peace.

Watch out – here come the Troofers!

The rabbis are also preparing for their battle against Jerusalem’s new light train, which, in their opinion, holds various dangers in its wake. In an ad published by the committee, the rabbis explain that once the train is completed, the Transportation Ministry plans to cancel many of the ultra-Orthodox neighborhoods’ kosher bus lines, thus forcing the inhabitants to make use of the new train.

The rabbis stated that “the light train is not compatible with the needs of the ultra-Orthodox public, material or spiritual, and the intention to coerce the ultra-Orthodox public into using the light train constitutes a grave spiritual danger.”

The rabbis added that “the Transportation Ministry intends to alter the courses of the buses that serve the general public and reroute them through Geula neighborhood, thus completely ruining the spiritual identity of the neighborhood.”

The rabbis called on those who can to assist in the matter, as these plans “completely ignore the needs of the ultra-Orthodox public, and will cause the collapse of the ultra-Orthodox transportation layout in Jerusalem, which required much labor to achieve.”

I’m struck by the difference in this video of the terrorist attack in Jerusalem and the video three weeks ago of the pedestrian struck down in the streets of Hartford, Connecticut. In Hartford, a 78 year old man is struck down and everyone stands around with their hands in their pocket, waiting for somebody else to handle it.

In Jerusalem, a terrorist goes wild in a bulldozer and you get a street full of people chasing it. OK, think about that. The people are chasing a BULLDOZER, OK? And I can’t help but note that some of those people are waving handguns. The attack is NOT stopped by the police, but by an OFF-DUTY soldier who COMMANDEERS A GUN, climbs up on the moving bulldozer and kills the terrorist. That looks like what we call in the business world a bias toward action.

This is an illustration of the different values of Jerusalem and Hartford. In Jerusalem, it’s the citizens duty to solve problems when they see them. In Hartford, well, we better not get involved.

Are we suppose to feel sorry for the people who didn’t have enough sense to get out of the houses? Sorry but I don’t, they are well warned in advance. When Israel bulldozes houses its normally in response to terrorist activities and they are cleaning out areas they believe that activity originates from.

Palestinians have been given every chance in the world to make peace, but they don’t want it, they want to destroy Israel. I support Israel, they have tremendous restraint, how they have tolerated the Palestinians for so long without destroying them all is a mystery to me.

Dave742 is an open Iranian shill and anti-semite. He wants to kill Jews and Americans, so is rather openly an enemy of the United States and Israel.

Limerick:

The report includes the incident that was the suppposed “truce breaker” by Islamic Jihad. That’s why the article said “The first violation committed by the Palestinians was recorded a day later, on June 24, when Islamic Jihad fired three rockets at Sderot from the northern Gaza Strip town of Beit Hanoun.” The rocket attack that was not included was the “most recent rocket attack” which supposedly occured the same day as the article, on June 27. The reason for this is because the report had already come out before these “most recent” attacks, and the UN report failed to include attacks that occurred in the future. Try reading with comprehension, genius.

an unnamed UN source

You’re right. The source must have made up the existence of this report, included details of injured vctims such as “70-year old Jamil al-Gahoul”. Is all a lie. I am surprised that yediot ahronot would report such an obvious fabrication.

Sometimes it is simply amazing how stupid you really are. The information in the article all comes from the UN source and the UN report.

Of course, maybe you’re really smart and acting like a rock to try and frustrate me.

The information in the article all comes from the UN source and the UN report.

Post it then. While you are at it post the follow up investigation by the reporter with the interviews with the Israeli soldiers and the ‘farmers, and any eye witnesses to the events. Somehow I have a feeling the reporter will not be able to any of those things.

You are a typical liberal. You accept single unidentified source information as fact.

While you are looking for that information you also might want to figure out why Hamas rejoiced in todays horrific attack and Abbas condemned it.

Video: Palestinian bulldozer attack kills 2 in Jerusalem

The religion of peace, eh!

You’re right. The article is a big hoax. Troofer.

At the start of the video people are congratulating the bank security guard who fired once into the cab of the bulldozer but he was still conscious, a soldier comes in from the foreground carrying a black back pack who will later use his Sub-MG to shoot the terrorist for good measure after the policeman shoots him 4 times.

Correction, from this video the soldier himself doesn’t climb the cab but a Yasam police officer with the sub-MG (person in the black bike helmet).

From Honest Reporting a pro-Israel media-watch group:

While BBC Online currently covers the story “Bulldozer rampage hits Jerusalem,” this was not the original headline. Offering a glimpse into the BBC’s warped journalism, the initial headline read “Israel bulldozer driver shot dead”.

Gotta love the Beeb. Here’s the full article
