Last Saturday evil radicalized Jews killed 59-year-old Mohammed Abu
Jumaa as he worked the land in Gaza. The western media agreed not to
publish the story.
Suppose a Palestinian had shot dead a Jew working his field. You could
bet the same media would be all over the story, Israel would launch a
"response" and our politicians would declare that Israel has the right
to defend herself.
You are a loser, nazi, anti-semitic liar who has to post anonymously so your neighbours don't run you out of town.
OCCUPIED JERUSALEM: A 1948 Palestinian motorist injured three security personnel in a ramming attack in northern Israel Sunday and was shot and wounded, police and the military said.
A police statement said the driver was taken into custody after carrying out the attack at a market parking lot and outside a train station in the city of Acre. The force said he had acted for nationalistic reasons.
Video posted on social media showed a sport utility vehicle turning into the parking lot at high speed and hitting a pedestrian, sending him flying. In other footage, the vehicle is seen mounting a sidewalk.
Police said three people were struck by the vehicle, identifying one of them as a paramilitary policeman. The military said the two others hurt in the incident were soldiers.
The police statement did not say who shot the driver. Local media reports said soldiers at the train station fired at the vehicle. The hospital official said the driver was shot several times and was in a moderate to serious condition.
Separately, a Palestinian farmer, Mohammad Abu Jumaa, 59, was killed Saturday by Israeli army fire near the Gaza Strip city of Khan Younes, the Health Ministry said.
A spokeswoman for the Israeli army said soldiers opened fire at a Palestinian man who had entered a “banned zone” near Gaza’s border with Israel, but did not give any additional information.
The area around the border fence between Gaza and Israel is the scene of frequent demonstrations by Palestinians to protest the Israeli blockade of the enclave.
There has also been a rise of tension following the controversial announcement made in December by U.S. President Donald Trump recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
Israel and Hamas in Gaza have fought three wars since 2008 and the territory has been under an Israeli blockade for more than 10 years.
U.N. Middle East peace envoy Nickolay Mladenov has warned that Gaza, which also suffers from water and power cuts, unemployment and poverty, was on the verge of “full collapse.”
