30-Jun-16: Two Israelis fall victim to Arab knife-man in Kiryat Arba

An instance from an almost infinite choice of examples
of officially-sanctioned Palestinian Arab incitement to
murder Jews, preferably via the attackers' own two hands. 
Terror of the kind that both Fatah and Hamas hypocritically called "crimes against humanity" yesterday ["Fatah, Hamas condemn attacks on Turkish airport", Ma'an News Agency, June 29, 2016] happens in places other than airports and train stations.

Too often, as we have learned in the past two decades, it happens in the center of your home town. And it's always, but always, directly connected to incitement from some of the most protected parts of the Palestinian Arab world - especially its places of worship, its places of education and the luxurious offices of its self-pampering, kleptocratic political elite.

Two Israelis were attacked by a knife-wielding Palestinian Arab a short time ago, Thursday morning. One is a fifteen year-old girl. About the other, we know nothing at this stage. Both are being rushed into Jerusalem from the Kiryat Araba community, south of the capital, where the assailant launched his attempt at murder. He was shot dead trying.

From Israel National News:
One of the wounded is in serious condition, a second in critical condition. MDA emergency responders are on the scene treating the wounded. A Kiryat Arba spokesperson said the terrorist penetrated the town's security perimeter and entered the Ramat Mamre (Givat Harsina) neighborhood... Officials reported that the terrorist stabbed the 15-year old girl, then attacked a member of the local security squad who responded to the attack. The member of the security squad was wounded, but managed to shoot and kill the terrorist. The female victim, who is in critical condition, has been evacuated to Shaarei Tzedek hospital in Jerusalem. The second victim, a male in his early 30s, has been transferred to Hadassah Ein Karem in Jerusalem, and is in serious condition.
Social media sources say this is the private home in Kiryat Arba where
the knifer broke in and stabbed the Israeli girl. To be confirmed.
Times of Israel is working from slightly different facts. It says the knife-wielding attacker broke into a Kiryat Arba residence where he found and stabbed the teenage girl in the upper body. Upper body attacks have become part of the protocol for stabbing Israelis, as we have reported in the past. The second victim, evidently the one who killed the attacker, is said to be a thirty-year old male.

We will be adding to this report in the coming hours as we learn more. But at this stage we can say with utter confidence that neither Fatah nor Hamas will declare this cowardly knifing attack a crime against humanity.
