Eight wounded in Palestinian attack in Tel Aviv

Police report the assailant already admitted he planned the terror attack

According to initial reports from the police, at about 1:40AM Monday morning, a young Palestinian man from Nablus, West Bank, carried out a terror attack when he car-jacked a taxi cab and used it to run over several border police manning a checkpoint next to a nightclub in south Tel Aviv (two blocks away from my home), where thousands had reportedly gathered for a big end of summer bash. He then got out of the car and began stabbing people waiting to enter the club, while shouting “Allah HuAkbar” (“God is great” in Arabic), before being apprehended. One person is reportedly in serious condition.

According to Ynetnews, the police have ruled out the possibility of a criminal hit and run attack because they already questioned the assailant, who admits to planning the attack, and further rationalized that no one would commit such an act at that time of night.

The cab driver whose taxi was stolen reported that he picked up the assailant in Jaffa and drove him to the central bus station, where he was stabbed in the hand and thrown out of the car.  The police claim the assailant had been in Tel Aviv for at least a full day preparing for the attack.

This is the second terror attack in as many weeks on Israeli civilians, not including the rockets that have been fired from Gaza into southern Israel more or less unabated during this period.  When such attacks occur, it reminds me that life here is not normal and that what seems like relatively tranquil times are in fact just brief ebbs in what is a constant state of war. And indeed, Israel is in a constant state of war where it is both victim and perpetrator, and where the origin of attacks is nearly impossible to locate.

In such a state of war, one can argue that attacking soldiers or other figures directly involved in committing the attacks on either side, whether they be called “soldiers,” “guards,” “militants,” “freedom fighters,” “terrorists” or any other term, is a legitimate act of war.  Some may therefore argue that targeting border police is a legitimate act of war – but what is certain is that attacking high schoolers going out to party is certainly not.

      You say that you don’t count the rockets from Gaza as a terrorist attack? Why? Do you think people from Sderot would agree with that assessment?

      It’s worth pointing out, even though you’ve left it unsaid, is that for murderers like this, the aim is not to follow the rules of war and attack military targets. The absolute aim is to strike at defenceless civilians; guards are simply obstacles in the way.

      I know this is NOT the most important in this story, but I just have to point it out:
      “Allah HuAkbar” (“God is great” in Arabic)”
      No, no, and one time more no 🙁
      First, the transcription is wrong. It’s “Allah(u) akbar”.
      Secondly, it means “God is greater [than]…”.
      It’s NOT a positive adjective (great) neither a superlative (greatest) but a comparative. This is important in order to understand the use of Allahu akbar.
      I will dissociate my explanation from this event, but when people are pronouncing “Allahu akbar”, they are implying that God (and his justice) is greater than the worldly powers. Demonstrators yelling ‘Allahu akbar’ in defiance against a dictator are not necessarily Islamic fundamentalists, and in this use it can be compared to the ‘memento mori’ that a Roman slave said to the generals parading through the city in a victory triumph.
      And Mairav, I do 100% agree with you. Attacking high schoolers has NO justification whatsoever. I won’t pronounce myself on the Border Police. I might get banned ….:-)

      Jake – you misunderstood. I do count the rockets as indiscriminate murder, not accepted targets of war, which is why I wrote, not including the rockets.

      Michael W. – Border police are often deployed in “non-military” situations. You seem them at most large-scale protests, gatherings and other events – in this case it was a massive party, and they were there to maintain order, since they are trained for situations of unruly behavior on a large scale.

      Israel-haters think Israel is an empire stretching from sea to shining sea. Border guards are in Tel-Aviv because reality is Tel-Aviv is just ten minutes drive or so from the border where terrorists come.

      Well, who is going to pay for this (SUPPOSEDLY) terror attack?
      Are the citizens of Nablus going to be collectively punished?
      Of course, they always are collectively punished by Israel, just like Gaza.
      Citizens of Awarta next to illegal colony Itamar faced hell and abuse for weeks before Israel managed to stick the crime claims on two Palestinians since it couldn’t expose the real perpetrators.

      @ Ami
      Well, Palestinians have experienced more than once that the Israelis bomb first, and ask questions afterwards. “The Far West in the Near East”.
      So maybe Jalal’s “supposedly” as in ‘Palestinians were behind the attack in Eilat’. Israel bomb first, killing three children (two 2 years old), and we’re still waiting for these ‘supposedly’ proofs.
      The ‘supposedly’ OT have been so for 44 years, and the ‘international community’ has had the time to qualify them so, not that it has changed anything.
      I guess the IOF have already demolished the house of the family in Nablus, and Bibi is going to sign for another 200 house constructions in some settlement.

      Reply to Comment
    9. @Deir – I’m sorry, but I find that “supposedly” very offensive. And so should any one in his right mind. No one is saying that the occupation doesn’t exist (you obviously know my opinions by now), but when Palestinians won’t acknowledge an act of terror (forget about the elementary denouncing of it – I’d never even *think* of asking so much), then people like myself get pissed off. And rightfully so.

      @ami I used “Supposedly” because I know nothing about the motives of the attacker, for now, I prefer to call him a criminal and not a terrorist.
      A lot of Palestinians, like the bulldozer attacker in Jerusalem a few years ago, exploit the idea that they are Palestinian to label their action as nationalistic and escape the criminal label.
      Who knows, this guy might have stolen the Taxi, drove over the Police officers who tried to stop him. then when he thought he is already in big trouble, he’ll confess “nationalistic motive”

      Not every action done by a Palestinian should be blindly considered as nationalistic and targeting Israelis specifically.
      To Israel, every Palestinian wrong-doer is considered a terrorist.
      Come on

      If you remember the case of Ziad Jilani who was killed by the border police last summer, literally executed while lying on the ground, you would understand why I prefer to wait for further proofs. The Israeli media talked about a terrorist attack but he really lost control of his car, hit by stones, and drove accidentally into some soldiers.
      Personally, I’m very ‘pissed off’ by the bombing of Gaza last week.
      A non-violent ‘supposedly’ in a sentence doesn’t piss me off. We see the ‘supposedly’ here all the time, particularly the ‘supposedly’ Palestinians, a Ben Israel classic 🙂

      Reply to Comment
    12. @Deir – yeah, I guess when someone needs more proof than a guy yelling alahu-akbar and stabbing people, we’ll never see eye to eye. So be it.
      .
      Anyway, it’s not like you’ll believe any proof coming from an Israeli. So it’s destined to be “supposedly” forever, I presume.

      Reply to Comment
    13. @Jalal – Come on yourself.
      .
      So, according to you, this guy is just a criminal, who might have stolen a taxi and then rammed into a police car. Oh, and then he just happened to have a knife with him after he crashed, and started to stab people. Yeah, I do that all the time after I steal cars. I stab people.
      .
      Your defense, and Deir’s, is pathetic.
      .
      Just because there were numerous cases where attacks were not terror in the end, does not erase the thousands of attacks that were.
      .
      What’s amazing is that Palestinians like you and Deir manage to suck out all the “peace vibes” in someone like me, and make me wonder what it’s all for. Seriously.
      .
      In my writing on +972 I call the occupation what it is. I call the bombing of Gaza what it is. I call the apartheid what it is.
      .
      Too bad you can’t do the same for terror. It’s “supposedly”.

      @ Ami
      And if he’d been a Marsian stabbing another Marsian, would you call it a ‘terrorist’ attack by now ?
      Reminds me of a story from the US last year about some guy flying a little private plane into a buiding. We first heard the ‘terrorist’ mantra, but when it turned out that he was an average American pissed off by some on-going problems he had with the local tax-office, he dumped his plane into their buildings, and we never heard the ‘terrorist’-label any longer.

      I’m very suspicious of ‘Arabs stabbing Jews while yelling ‘Allahu akbar’ since this:
      http://www.jweekly.com/article/full/19232/stabbing-of-french-rabbi-raises-controversial-questions/
      All over the MSM when it happened (also Haaretz)for weeks, Haaretz never made a follow-up on the story though. The knife later turned out to come from Farhi’s own synagogue 🙂

      Reply to Comment
    15. @Deir – OK. So, you’re saying this guy actually stabbed himself now. Or that every one on the scene is lying.

      @ Ami
      I just saw your response to Jalal.

      I want to be clear: I’m not defending anything. That is, I do believe the Palestinians have a right to self-defense also by armed struggle, and also within the State of Israel (the metropol of the colonial occupation, though to me all Palestine is occupied), but this case – if it turns out to be an attack with nationalistic motives – is NOT in my opinion defensible.

      You in fact wrote my opinion yourself:
      “Just because there were NUMEROUS cases when attacks were not terror IN THE END, does not erase the thousands of attacks that were”.
      So you’re in fact applying the ‘guilty by probability’.

      If asking the questions whether this is really a terror attack “sucks out all your peace vibes” I imagine you didn’t sleep when your army bombed Gaza last week…..

      Ami, I love reading your columns, especially on the demonstrations this summer, and I’ve returned several times to the humor pieces (including those not labeled “Humor,” e.g., the US Evangelicals and the Rabbi — absolutely hysterical). I appreciate how you respond to broken records in the comments section with candor, intelligence, and directness: getting “pissed off.” Frankly, when I see these bores’ names, I skip their predictable sermons and diatribes, and I suspect not a few other readers do, too.

    20. I am with Mr Kaufman in this.
      Mr Yassin , I dont know if you live in Israel or another Middle East country, i think no but who knows maybe i am wrong, but in this places to cry Allah(u) akbar and stabbing people dont look like (ok everyone is inocent before..) an attack without political-hate motivation. Not in Israel and not in arabs country like Egypt, for example, where i read from a local newspaper, printed not internet, how they brand a killing (killing of political hate they put) because a man shout ” allah…” before the stabbing a bookseller . Ok, everyting can change with time and investigations, but sometimes if something looks like shit and smell like shit is very possible that finally is going to be shit(sorry for my beautiful language). Plus I dont understand why do you explain your claims with examples from Paris (the attack to the rabbi), USA (private plane), and all this patronazing thing of Marsian against Marsian. To cite the murder of Ziad Jilan is another thing, who could be proper and relevant to justify your point.

      a proof for what? he only came from nablus to dance and had a fight with some border police mans that simply didn’t like the way he crashed the cab that he stole (using a knife) from it’s driver into them and then shouted: “allahu akbar”. than they attacked him, and in order to defend himself he stubbed 8 people, before they finally understood he is not dangerous and only arrested him “for investigation”, in order to hide the truth and to create a false media spin that would serve the israeli growing conspiracy.

      Since ‘everybody’ seems to agree that the incident in Tel Aviv is a “terrorist attack”, I guess the same people have no problems calling this one a terrorist attack too:
      http://www.maannews.net/eng/ViewDetails.aspx?ID=416898
      The “terrorist” is still running, and if he’s ever found he’ll probably go free. Israeli “terrorists” mostly go free.
      These “terror attacks” happen every week in occupied Palestine.

      I have some difficulties seeing it as an act of “terrorism”, much less war.

      The perpetrator was seemingly untrained and barely armed, and not particularly effective.

      One can wonder if any life experiences in Nablus can make one despondent and hateful, or it was just the evil of outside agitators and internet.

      However, rocket fire from Gaza is a different story. On one hand, it is organized. On the other, in is not unprovoked. Most recently, IDF killed a large number of people with most dubious justification. Basically, if something happens IDF kills a number of people in Gaza, and if nothing happens, the killings are just less frequent. While in West Bank inhabitants are subject of contact sports which seem to provide a lot of joy to many Israelis.

    29. @Michael W., Border Guards are a police formation, basically riot policemen, and are stationed all over the country and in the occupied territories (where they answer to the military command). The name is a relic from the fifties, when most of its functions were to indeed guard the border.

      The first definition of “terrorism” that I found goes more or less like that:
      “violent acts intending to create fear and perpetrated with religious, political or ideological goals, and deliberately targeting or disregarding the safety of civilians”.
      That fits perfectly well the behaviour of the State of Israel for many decades, particularly the IOF and the settler thugs in the West Bank.

      “Wa’allah” what?
      And where do you get the idea from that I don’t know Arabic ? Because I mentionnd your ‘google translation’ on the PRC?
      Well, you could try to google translate ‘navel gazer’. If you enter ‘collective’ + ‘navel gazer’, you might even get “Israelis”.
      We still haven’t seen any proofs of the Popular Resistance Committee being involved in the Eilat attack, have we ? Or maybe you have more ‘insider’ informations ?

      @ Piotr
      The Palestinians in the West Bank don’t need the internet or outside agitators to feel hateful. Israel is doing the job just fine for herself. If you read the daily compilation on Mondoweiss from Kate or Seham, you’ll find articles on settler violence, IDF-violence, house demolitions, land grabbing on a daily basis.

      well, my english is horrible! 🙂
      but as a palestinian, how comes you don’t know arabic?? (my impression at least is that you don’t)
      you write:
      “Yeah, I had absolutely no problems sleeping when Israelis were killed in Eilat. They weren’t killed by the non-existing army of my non-existing state for non-existing reasons”.
      yaani you are palestinian… but in your “arabic” trnascribed attempts you tend to have mistakes….
      when i wrote “popular resistance groups” (because i didn’t know how to spell commitees in english) you laughed at me claiming that i don’t even know the name of whom i’m talking about,and gave an articulated show off of how to trnascribe it to english from arabic, whice was really funny, because you wrote al-jan instaed of lijan (whice made it be “the popular resisting demons”….)

      and when i wrote you back their name in arabic, together with some stuff, you said it was google translation (it wasn’t, and it proved me that you don’t know arabic)and then you quickly ran from the discussion… like you seem to do know….

      can you explain that please???

      Why don’t you look in a Arabic dictionnary, or maybe this:

      Too bad I don’t know how to write ‘chutzpah’ in Hebrew.
      You can write all you want in Arabic, try to apply grammatical and orthographical rules though. And frankly I don’t care whether you believe me or not.
      By the way ‘falastînî’ is with a ‘sîn’ and not a ‘sâd’ 🙂
      I have no idea what can be made with google translations. In fact I’ve never tried. I’m illiterate when it comes to techniques on the net. I can google though !

      i’m not trying to prove that my arabic is better than yours. i know arabic, it’s not perfect, for i’m not an arab, and i never claimed i was. you, my friend,simply don’t know arabic,or maybe you know very little. and given the fact that you claim you are palestinian, and use “arabic” transcribed words in your comments, it’s a little funny.

      I wrote al-jân etc etc because I made a typo I guess (instead of lijân).
      What mistake have I taken from the English wikipedia ? jinnî (singular), jinn (plural) ? Why don’t you look it up. You must have a dictionnary ? Jinn is the plural. And al-jan/al-jann does not exist. I’m sorry, you can insist all you want. Israeli chutzpah has no limits.
      You don’t even know whether to write al-jan or al-jann, don’t you ? It’s not the same. And I wrote al-jân with an alif which is something different again. Look up jinn in an Arabic dictionary, and you’ll see it’s jîm/nûn/nûn, vocalised with a kasra [i].

      sorry, wrong again. i checked it out, both are correct. see for example that sentence that contains both forms from the arabic wikipedia page:

      مغارة مجلس الجن في عمان يعتقد أنها ملتقى الجان.
      http://ar.wikipedia.org/wiki/%D8%AC%D9%86
      it’s in the picture at the upper left corner of the page, and you can see the translated verse in the same picture, same corner, in the english wiki page…

      very strange arab you are…

      anyway, your explanation that your ridicilous “demons popular groups” is ” a typo” is quite weak… don’t you think?

      now, just to remind you, YOU started it all by jumping on me for not calling the prc the correct name in english, and “corrected” me with your funny transcribe of their name to “demons popular etc”. than, when i wrote their name in my arabic comment YOU claimed that it’s a google translation (it wasn’t, and any arab SPEAKER could see that), and than went on to claim that i’m a zionist, even after i said i’m not, and that i’m a hasbara worker of edelstein… so you see, YOU started being nasty, coky, demagogic, using ad-hominem that was not even true towards me!… and when i gave you a link to a hebrew page you didn’t say you don’t understand hebrew, but said it’s rubbish…. interesting, ISN’T IT?
      and than couple of days afterwards what do i see? that you refer to yourself as a palestinian…
      so you can only complain about yourself… you got yourself into it… next time don’t lie AND attack people that way, it’s a bad combination…

      This will be my last comment on this subject. Wa’allah.

      Eitan august 30, 10:32: ‘too bad, you’re still wrong, al-jan means demons’
      And now you send me to the wikipidia-page, and what does it say: al-jân (with shadda): jîm/’alif/nûn/nûn. Just as the dictionary: your ‘jan’ and ‘jann’ does not exist. There is an ‘alif. At least in my dictionary, and on my screen.
      And al-jân al-muqâwama etc could never make any sense, could it ? You don’t put the definite article on an idâfa, or maybe in Israel you do.
      “Next time don’t lie” Listen, you can think whatever you want, I’ve already told you, I don’t care. And by the way, I’ve stated on various occasions that I don’t know any Hebrwe, so when I see a comment in Hebrew I just jump it. Paranoid maybe ? And I went looking at my comment: I never said you were a zionist. I commented on your Hasbara: claiming that the PRC fired rockets DURING the attack in Eilat IS Hasbara, isn’t it ?
      I’ll give you the last word.

      @deir

      your ongoing attempts to brag about your Arabic are generating a hilarious, fascinating chronology…
      see for example how you fail to get things right about one little word, 3 times in a raw!:-)
      first, you opened the chronology up by bragging about mastering the correct name of the pcr, claiming that al-jan stands for committee… 🙂
      then, after I told you al-jan means “the demons”, you started spinning and arguing with me, telling me that I don’t know shit and that jin means demons, and jan means one demon… 🙂
      then, when I insisted, you “checked it out” and suddenly claimed that al-jan don’t mean anything… 🙂
      and what do you discover in the end? Oops. Al-jan means demons… deir yassin, our Arabic expert, is wrong again… you tried so hard to brag about knowing one little word, and was mistaken 3 times!
      and now you tries to hide after stupid transcribing games, as the usuall… our argue about the correct form wasn’t at all about having or not having shadde, as anyone can see, and I never said that there is no shadde. And (I’ll remind you again), YOU opened it all up trying to criticize ME for not knowing Arabic. Well I know Arabic, it’s not perfect, but apparently it’s much better than yours!
      The most demagogic (and desperate) act so far, is that you now try to lie about me not knowing that there is an alif in the word (???????!!!!!!!)… well, that’s strange, all the examples I showed you were with an alif, in Arabic writing, as well as in English writing , and the fact that you add a funny sign and I don’t, is completely meaningless…… and pay attention that although I tried and asked to make that dialog in Arabic, you constantly avoided it and insisted to stay in the field of transcribed Arabic (why, actually, if your Arabic is so good and mine is so bad?). so now you try to use the transcribe differences in order to eliminate your emberassment! (…well, you can as well argue that i’m wrong about your name, for i don’t add something above the i in deir, like you…) unbelievable…!
      Now, again…. don’t tell me” khalas”, or that what I’m doing is “chutspa”. YOU were the one started jumping on me for naming the prc wrong in english ,telling ME, “you don’t even know their name”, and “corrected” me with your hilarious cocky “Arabic” transcribe of “demons popular committees”. Then, when I replied with a comment in arabic, that also contained the cpr name, YOU attacked me in an ugly way and said that i used a google translation, although any Arabic SPEAKER and READER could see was not the case, and then you went on to blame (YOU DID) me for being a Zionist, even after I said I’m not, and you also said that I’m a hasbara (propaganda) worker for Edelstein (the Zionistic propaganda minister).
      You attack people personally, insult them,brag about your arabic every 2 seconds and pretend to be a Palestinian (you are not!). it’s outrages, and really lame. REALLY lame.
