Last October the Islamic State issued this call to Muslims in the West: “If you are not able to find an IED [improvised explosive device] or a bullet … smash his head with a rock, or slaughter him with a knife, or run him over with your car, or throw him down from a high place, or choke him, or poison him. If you are unable to do so, then burn his home, car or business. Or destroy his crops.” And a Nazareth billboard supported car jihad terror attacks [see the featured image above].
“Police: Palestinian rams car into Israelis in West Bank,” AP, November 8, 2015 (thanks to Bulldog):
JERUSALEM (AP) — A Palestinian attacker rammed his vehicle into a group of Israelis standing at a hitchhiking station in the West Bank Sunday, wounding four of them before he was shot dead by paramilitary officers, Israeli police said.
Police spokeswoman Luba Samri said two of the Israelis were moderately wounded in the attack, the latest in nearly two months of violence across the region.
Later, the Israeli military said a Palestinian woman stabbed a security guard at the entrance to a West Bank settlement. The guard was lightly wounded and shot the woman, wounding her.
Security camera footage showed the woman wearing a black, full-length robe and a veil over her hair chatting with the guard and handing over documentation. As he looks down to inspect her papers, she reaches into her purse to pull out a long-bladed knife and swings it in his direction as they both fall out of the frame.
Hours later, the military said an Israeli man showed up at a West Bank checkpoint with a wound to his stomach. He said he was stabbed while shopping in a Palestinian village.
Since mid-September, 12 Israelis have been killed in Palestinian attacks, most of them stabbings, while 74 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli fire, including 47 who Israel said were involved in attacks or attempted attacks. The other 27 Palestinians were killed in clashes between stone-throwers and security forces.
In addition to stabbings, Palestinians have also carried out shooting attacks and used vehicles to attack Israelis.
The bloodshed was triggered by unrest at a major Jerusalem shrine revered by both Muslims and Jews, and quickly spread to Israel, the West Bank and the Gaza border.
Israel has blamed the violence on incitement by Palestinian political and religious leaders. Palestinians say the violence is rooted in a lack of hope for gaining independence after years of failed peace efforts….
