OK, so we are told by Gordon Brown and his ilk that if we just trust the arabs and live side by side with them, they will love us and make us cookies, and send flowers to our grandma--on the same day that, using any means available, another arab tries to kill as many innocent civilians as possible. This time, like last, with a bulldozer.
I'm sure Obama will have a similar message for us--sunshine and puppy dogs sprout from the very loins of Abbas. Yeah.
Meanwhile, we have to deal with the reality of the situation. Now, it is apparent, that not only do we need to protect ourselves from possible terrorists infiltrating from the fictional land of "palestine," we also must concern ourselves with eliminating the chances that Israeli Arabs, armed with heavy equiment, will try to kill any old lady, child, bus passenger on the street.
What will be our response? I'm sure it will be to look the other way.
However, if we were prudent, we would make it illegal for any arab to have a license to use heavy equipment, to move heavy equipment, or to possess heavy equipment within the borders of Israel. We would also make it illegal for them to drive large trucks for transport. Any transportation of goods or materials within Israel must be done by Jews in order to eliminate any possibility to the transportation of terrorist weapons or supplies.
I know, I know, the EU would immediately protest the "collective punishment" we were putting upon the "poor palestinian people." Boo Hoo. We won't let them have their weapons to kill us with.
Too bad. So sad.
Instead, we will just wait patiently for another terrorist to kill our people in a similar way because, as you know, the words of the EU are so much more important than the lives of real Jews.
Another Bulldozer Attack in Jerusalem: 23 Wounded

(IsraelNN.com) For the second time in three weeks, an Arab commandeered a bulldozer to commit a terrorist attack in Jerusalem. He wounded several people before being shot and killed.
The terrorist began his attempt to murder Jews on King David St. near the Yemin Moshe neighborhood. He took a tractor from a construction site, and began plowing into vehicles along the street, hitting at least three cars - one of which he completely overturned - and a bus. One driver was able to escape from his car even though the tractor plowed it into a bus stop. When the terrorist reached the intersection of Keren HaYesod St., a citizen and Border Guard policeman shot and killed him. The entire incident was over very quickly, eyewitnesses said.
Less than three weeks ago, an Arab from eastern Jerusalem killed three people in a similar attack before he was himself killed by a heroic yeshiva student/soldier. The tractor used in today's attack was smaller than the one used in the previous one.
Of the 23 injured, one is reported in moderate condition - apparently with an amputated leg - and the others have light injuries or are suffering from trauma. Among them are a woman and her nine-month-old baby son.
Gag-Order on Terrorist's Name
The dead tractor terrorist was an Israeli citizen, living in Um Tuba, a south-eastern Jerusalem Arab neighborhood not far from Sur Baher. His name was publicized over the radio, and minutes later, a gag order prohibiting it from being disseminated was publicized - apparently because of his family connections with a an orange-bearded Hamas legislator who has been jailed for involvement in terrorism.
Moshe Feiglin, leader of the Likud's Manhigut Yehudit faction, was an eyewitness to the attack. He told Voice of Israel Radio that his first impression of the attack was the tractor-shovel attempting to drop down upon a passerby. "At first I thought it was some kind of accident, but very quickly we realized that it was an attack. Thank G-d, it ended very quickly, because of the alertness of passersby who shot him - I saw a man I know from the southern Judea community of Susia, but he was the first one to shoot the terrorist, and then the Border Guard policeman came and finished the story."
The man who first shot the terrorist was later announced to be Yaki Asael, 56, father of eight, from Susia."We have long called for a policy of not hiring Arabs in construction," said Shifra Hoffman of Victims of Arab Terror. "We hold the government guilty of this attack for not implementing this policy."
