'Terrorist' kills U.S. tourist, wounds 10 others in Israel -- near Joe Biden visit site

This news just breaking the attacker has been run down and shot dead...
Kind of strange this attack happened in Isreal so close to where Biden is at this time, especially since a meeting that was supposed to take place later this month with Isreal was cancelled earlier today by Netanyahu surprising Washington...

"There is no justification for such acts of terror," the vice president's office said in a statement. "(Biden) expressed sorrow at the tragic loss of American life."

Really now ?

We are calling 'mass' stabbers terrorists ?

What's next ?

Background checks on kitchen utensils, and government spying programs on Amazon?

Events like that should not happen. My sympathies go out to those harmed, and to their families.

But people need to stop using that word so 'liberally'.

It is wideley recognized terrorist movement known as the "knife infitada" or "stabbing infitada"

The current “stabbing Intifada” now taking place in Israel—a quasi-uprising in which young Palestinians have been trying, and occasionally succeeding, to kill Jews with knives—is prompted in good part by the same set of manipulated emotions that sparked the anti-Jewish riots of the 1920s: a deeply felt desire on the part of Palestinians to “protect” the Temple Mount from Jews.

Also known as the "individuaal infitada". Israeli officials are considering going after the terrorists' families, something Trump suggested and was widely criticized for.

For the past six months, Israel has been roiling in its latest wave of violence, although the nation has struggled to define the nature of the violence or the best ways to handle it. These latest attacks have been dubbed the “individual intifada,” or “knife intifada,” by both Israeli and Palestinian news networks, and the perpetrators, many of them young, range widely in background, although in the early days of the attacks, the assailants often hailed from impoverished parts of Arab East Jerusalem. Many of the attackers have used knives, cars, screwdrivers, or other items as unconventional items with which to attack civilians and soldiers both in Israel and the occupied West Bank. Analysts say the attackers have been mobilized by Facebook and social media rather than by organized political parties.

“We are in the midst of a war against ISIS-style Muslim extremist terror,” said Intelligence Minister Israel Katz in an interview Tuesday night on Channel 2. He added that he would soon commit to advancing a bill for the expulsion of terrorists’ families from the country, a demand echoed by many in Israel’s right-wing community as a necessary step toward deterring future attacks.
