One dead, four injured in terrorist attack in Jerusalem’s Old City … Islamic Jihadis Hide In Plain Sight!

By Adina Kutnicki

THERE is nothing new under the sun, that is, when it comes to Islamic jihad. Indeed, it is a scourge from time immemorial. And for those who require a non-sanitized jihadi backgrounder, the following should more than suffice.

WITHOUT a scintilla of a doubt, the above policy paper, ISLAM & BLOOD (written in 2012 by Professor Paul Eidelberg, and reviewed/contributed to by this writer), contains the most rigorous scholarship, comprehensive underpinnings, and elucidating treatise on Islam’s relationship to blood, bar none. Full stop.

IN this regard, once you couple said knowledge base with the fact that PM Bennett signed a bloody deal with the Islamic Brotherhood devil to become PM, well,

AND, so, no one with functioning brain cells should be shocked, shocked when attack after attack reaches a crescendo — not unlike that which mirrors the post-Olso intifadas, and for years onward!

One person was killed and four were injured in a terrorist attack in Jerusalem’s Old City at the foot of the Arab market descending to the Western Wall.

One man was killed and four others were injured in a shooting attack carried out by a Hamas member in Jerusalem’s Old City on Sunday morning.
Magen David Adom rescue services said that two of the injured were civilians and two were border police officers. One man was taken in critical condition to Hadassah Hospital Mount Scopus with head wounds and was later pronounced dead.
A second civilian sustained moderate-to-severe wounds and the border police officers had light injuries.

Two female police officers rushed to the scene near one of the entrances to the Temple Mount and opened fire towards the attacker. Two male border police officers later ran to provide assistance.
The man killed in the attack was later identified as 26-year-old Eliyahu David Kay who made aliyah in 2017 and served as a lone soldier in the Paratroopers Brigade. He was from South Africa and employed at the Western Wall as a guide.
The two other injured civilians were identified as 46-year-old Rabbi Zeev Katzenelnbogen, a father of eight and yeshiva student Aaron Yehuda Imergreen, who is hospitalized in serious condition at Shaare Zedek Medical Center.
The attack, that took place at the Chain Gate in the Old City, was the second in less than a week.
Prime Minister Naftali Bennett, who sent his condolences to the family of the man who passed away and asked to pray for those who were wounded in the attack said that he had received an update from the Public Security Minister Omer Bar-Lev and Police Commissioner Kobi Shabtai and that security forces have to increase their alertness in order to thwart further attacks.
“There was a very swift action of our forces, the two policemen who were at the scene and who very quickly neutralized the terrorist. However, this is the second recent terrorist attack in Jerusalem. I instructed the security forces to prepare accordingly and show vigilance out of concern of additional attacks. We need to increase caution and prevent further attacks,” he said.
Bar-Lev said that the attacker “moved through the alleys and fired quite a bit. Luckily, the alley was mostly empty because otherwise — heaven forbid — there would have been more casualties. The entire incident lasted 32 or 36 seconds. The actions of the female officers was operationally at the highest possible level.”
Defense Minister Benny Gantz said that he wanted to commend the forces “who acted quickly and resolutely and thwarted a much more severe attack.”
Sending his condolences to the family of the man who was killed and his best wishes to the wounded, he said that Israel “will continue to fight terrorism everywhere it raises its head.”
Police officers at the scene opened fire at the shooter, an East Jerusalem Palestinian, and killed him, according to police. He was later identified as Fadi Abu Shkhaydam, a 42-year-old resident of Shuafat camp in east Jerusalem and a known Hamas member.

Bar-Lev who arrived at the scene of the attack said that Abu Shkhaydam came to pray at the al-Aqsa mosque on a daily basis and that on Sunday he arrived with a Beretta M12 and started shooting.

“There was a difficult incident this morning that was dealt with quickly and professionally by the men and women of the Israel Police,” Bar Lev said. The terrorist is affiliated with Hamas’ political wing who regularly prayed in the Old City, and whose wife escaped abroad three days ago. He used a standardized weapon that is uncommon in Israel,” he said.

In a video from the scene shared on social media, a voice can be heard repeatedly yelling “help” in Hebrew, followed by several bursts of gunfire.
Hamas quickly took responsibility for the attack, calling it a “heroic operation” and warning “the criminal enemy and its government to stop the attacks on our land and our holy sites. [Israel] will pay a price for the iniquities it commits against Al-Aqsa Mosque, Silwan, Sheikh Jarrah and elsewhere.”
Israeli security forces later raided Shkhaydam’s home.
