Publisher’s note: With few exceptions during the past several weeks there seems to be an almost total media block out of anything not related to the Ebola outbreak. While the shootings in Canada and the US have garnered some attention, the continuing calamity in Ferguson rages on as does the continued strife in the mid-east. And in case anyone has missed it, there is a very important election taking place across America.
Most importantly, while we have been focused on Ebola, things have been intensifying in the mid-east and tensions are heightening over the fatal shooting of a Palestinian terrorist…shot while hurling a Molotov Cocktail in the West Bank.
Fox News: A powder keg atmosphere pervaded Jerusalem after an Israel Defense Forces soldier fatally shot a Palestinian teenager as he allegedly hurled a Molotov cocktail at cars in the West Bank in the latest violent incident that is stoking fears of a major Arab uprising.
Friday night's incident came after Arab youths and Israeli police clashed at the Temple Mount following afternoon prayers and two days after an Arab with a criminal record drove his car onto the crowded platform of the Jerusalem light railway system, crushing a three-month-old American baby girl to death and injuring seven more. That Wednesday incident was overshadowed by a terror attack the same day on the other side of the world, in Canada.
“The terror attacks that took place almost at the same time on opposite sides of the globe – Jerusalem and Ottawa – prove once again that terrorism is a worldwide plague that needs to be fought with force and without compromise," Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman wrote on his Facebook page. "We will... continue to be determined in the fight against terror and terrorists,” Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman wrote on his Facebook page.
