Axe wielding Israeli man stabs security guard at US embassy in Tel Aviv

How differently would this news story have been reported had the assailant been an Arab?

Where is his shirt?

An Israeli man wielding an ax and a knife attacked and lightly wounded an Israeli security guard at the U.S. Embassy in Tel Aviv.

Would the wound have been described as "life threatening" of the assailant had been an Arab?
Would the assailant have been apprehended alive, had it been an Arab?

The man, in his early 40s, attacked the guard outside the embassy gates, police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said. He said the man’s motive was unknown, but political motives were not suspected and the incident had nothing to do with Israel’s battle with Hamas militants in the Gaza Strip.
 If the motive is not known, why are political motives not suspected? Because he is an Israeli follower of Judaism?

“A Mazda car stopped next to the U.S. embassy and a man got out carrying a red bag and a pitchfork,” said David Cohen, 48, who told Reuters he witnessed the incident while jogging along Tel Aviv’s Mediterranean promenade.
“He began to run toward the security guards. They saw him, took their guns out and told him to get down on the ground,” Cohen said.
“He continued running and then they fired in the air and ordered him again to lie down. He continued to advance. They jumped on him and took his bag away.”
Interesting law enforcement response. Fired into the air and ordered him to lie down. Would this have been the response if this individual were an Arab? Is this how Israeli law enforcement or IDF act in Gaza?
Or the West Bank?

“It appears he was mentally unbalanced,” Tel Aviv police chief Yoram Ohayon told reporters.

Hm, the Tel Aviv chief is a diagnosing doctor ??
How does he know he wasn't on drugs? Intoxicated?

Is the US going to send in the Marines? After all their embassy was attacked!!

  3. Al-Intiqad: Future MP, Rebel Groups Prepare for Attacking Syrian Border Posts

    Nov 20, 2012

    Well informed sources in the Northern Lebanese region, Akkar, revealed that Syrian armed groups intensified their presence in the region.

    In details, a significant increase had been noticed in the numbers of armed groups all along the Akkari villages and towns, especially in the border towns and villages of Wadi Khaled passing by central al-Dreb to reach the coastal villages.
    Meanwhile, the sources confirmed that these armed groups are preparing for a military action against Syrian army border positions. They are likely to target one of the three border crossings: Boqaia, Abboudia, or al-Arida.
    Another option for the militants is to attack the strategic Syrian military posts that overlooks the Lebanese territories.

    "The zero hour to attack the Syrian army positions will be determined by a Future Party MP, who embraces three senior officers of the "Free Syrian Army" militia," the sources said.
    They further unveiled that the three men will supervise the operations of these armed groups and their deployment in border villages after arriving via private vehicles belonging to the Future MP.

    "Numerous meetings are periodically being held between this MP and these defector officers in the former's house after being summoned by him from their residences in al-Dreb region," al-Intiqad learned.
    In parallel it further quoted sources as warning that "this MP aims to use these fighters in any internal conflict."

    "He intends to remove the Syrian Social Nationalist Party headquarters from Halba in case of the erupt of any internal disturbances in the North or between "March 14" and "March 8" supporters," they clarified.
    "This MP has more than two hundred elements in the "FSA" and various armed gangs," the source said, and pointed out that " he is in full coordination with one of the extremist Salafist Sheikhs in the capital of the North, Tripoli."

    The sources also mentioned that "this MP coordinates with Sheikh Ahmad al-Assir in Sidon, who struggled to recruit fighters from Akkar ahead of combining them to his military wing, to be announced soon.

  4. Avaaz has remarkably published this map of vanishing palestine :
    and earned the wrath of their supporters....read some of the shrill comments

    1. Wow!

      a comment-
      "avaaz...has your leadership secretly changed??? there is a disturbing change in your reporting"

      Are the (Jewish) leftists of Avaaz retaliating for the extremist anti-leftist protests of the Likudists such as this?
