UPDATE: The Israeli who was stabbed earlier today has passed away.
It’s a societal sickness, a madness even, when Jews are targeted for being Jews as commanded in the Quran and yet it barely raises an eyebrow or commands a column inch in newsprint. And yet when a strip of bacon is left outside a mosque, or some absurd perceived insult is directed at the ideology that commands genocide, left-dominated institutions convulse in rage and indignation.
Media darling terror-tied CAIR’s mother org, Hamas, commended the attack in a statement, saying it commemorated 100 days since U.S. President Donald Trump declared Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

Israeli Seriously Wounded in Stabbing Attack in Jerusalem’s Old City
Assailant killed at scene ■ Man in his 20s stabbed in upper body, taken to hospital
Nir Hasson, Haaretz, Mar 18, 2018:
- BREAKING NEWS: More details soon.
- Israeli army releases names of two soldiers killed in West Bank attack
- Following attack, Israel may move West Bank separation barrier, splitting Palestinian assailant’s village
- Netanyahu vows to demolish home of Palestinian assailant who killed two soldiers
Magen David Adom emergency responders arrived at the scene, on Haggay St. near the entrance to the Temple Mount, and treated a man in his 20s with wounds to his upper body. He has been taken to Shaare Zedek Medical Center in serious condition.
Hamas commended the attack in a statement, saying it commemorated 100 days since U.S. President Donald Trump declared Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu vowed on Saturday that Israel would demolish the home of the Palestinian responsible for the attack.
Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman said on his Twitter account that he holds Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas responsible for the attack.
Following the attack, the IDF may recommend to the government to change the security barrier’s route in the area of the attack, military sources said. If the barrier is ultimately moved it will split the village of Barta’a in two.
