Many people lack a factual understanding of events in our region because the media report them inadequately. We blog here because our daughter Malki, murdered at the age of 15 in a restaurant massacre in Jerusalem, was a victim of jihadist hatred and barbarism. For jihadism and terrorism to end in Israel, New York, Madrid, London and everywhere else, people first need to understand the scale on which it is happening and why. This ongoing war is killing us.

4-Feb-13: Stabbing attack near entrance to Jerusalem's Old City
A young Palestinian Arab resident of a West Bank town carried out a stabbing attack on a Haredi man today (Monday) at the corner of Haim Bar-Lev and Hanevi'im streets in Jerusalem, close to the Old City. The Times of Israel report says the intended victim managed to get away without being injured. The assailant tried to escape by running away but was caught by police on nearby Salah a-Din Street in East Jerusalem. The police say the motive for the attack was, as it is usually termed here, for "nationalistic motives".
