1. Glad it wasn't worse
John ,   Alaska   (08.29.11)
I'm glad nobody was murdered by this terrorist. It would be best for him to be convicted of 8 counts of attempted murder and go to prison for the rest of his life. Also, this leaves unanswered questions. How badly hurt was the taxi driver? How did the terrorist get to him to throw him out of the taxi? I'm assuming like all taxi passengers he would have gotten in back. Finally, will the Israeli Left and/or Arabs find a way to blame this attack on Jews?
2. Waiting for condemnation of the terror attack from PA and UE
Scott ,   Texas   (08.29.11)
If the EU, left-wing NGOs, PA and a host of those who never miss an opportunity to criticize Israel had any shred of credibility they would condemn this another act of terror. Once again, I will not hold my breath that these people have any dignity. Western media will hide this in the back pages and everyone will go back to condemning Israel while completely ignoring PA's blatant violation of agreements, incessant incitement and rejection. This attack and the predictable reactions (or lack of ) to it just shows why Palestinian state, at this time, is a terrible idea.
3. Why arrest him? Kill him on the spot.
Arthur ,   SF, CA   (08.29.11)
4. Palestinian spring
Susya Bar Dror ,   IL   (08.29.11)
Will this be the future of the two countries Palestine and Israel? Arabs terrorizing Israel, Israel terrorized by arabs? In the name of their obscure al-lat? Do not forget: Abbas, yimach shemo, is a denier of the shoah.
5. So the border police have no guns and he lives, wow!
tom ,   tel aviv   (08.29.11)
6. free Israel from islam, send them all to saudi arabia !
7. Were the security people unarmed?
jason white ,   afula, israel   (08.29.11)
I always have my 9mm with me. At work or not. If they have the terrorist, then why didn't they pump one into his head? Or are terrorists a protected species? The I.A.F. should drop a bomb on the terrorists house and hope for collateral damage. Also do not warn the family beforehand. We should also target pali youth centers for deadly attacks by our security people.
8. terror attack by TERRORIST
bezalel ,   tel aviv   (08.29.11)
This was a terrorist attack. Therefore the attacker is a TERRORIST. If the attack was undertaken by a soldier in military uniform then the attacker would have been a MILITANT. Until the mainstream media can see the difference, more innocent people will unfortunately unnecessarily get killed in such attacks. If you cannot define your enemy, how can you possibly win. Remember, this is a media war too.
9. yet no response from the Abu Mazen imps
ghostq   (08.29.11)
seems like their eyes r fully blind. odd indeed.
10. Yelling"Allahu Aqbar"the theme song of global terror.Why ?
PETER SM ,   AUSTRALIA   (08.29.11)
11. Come on, he's not a "terrorist", more like a car theft
Salma ,   Palestine   (08.29.11)
the suspect was armed only with a knife, why did he not stab soldiers at the checkpoints in Nablus ?! sorry, I see no logic in your story.
12. Salma
canada ,   canada   (08.29.11)
Car thieves don't yell allah ahkbar.
13. #11
Michael ,   Israel   (08.29.11)
Salma, even you have to admit that one of your crazy buddies running around shouting about your godless god and stabbing people is terrorism. It's attitudes like yours that keep your people from getting a state. Grow up, accept responsibility for your terrorists' actions, and start condemning THEM, rather than blaming Israel for all your problems.
14. Scott the only condemnation is when Israel retaliates,then
PETER SM ,   AUSTRALIA   (08.29.11)
the lefty media will froth at the mouth The" humanitarians" who could not care less about dead Arabs,when they cant use it for their agenda, suddenly weep. Where were these lowlives when hundreds of thousands were being murdered by Arabs in Darfur or the regular killing of Kurds for centuries now.?
15. various thoughts
Ellen ,   Israel/USA   (08.29.11)
1. note to JOhn from Alaska--here in Israel many many people, my self included get into the front seat of a taxi. 2. Note to Salma--WAKE UP, he didn't hurt anyone at the checkpoint because he had his eye on more than one or two soldiers. Of course--who knows if he even went through the checkpoint. He could have been in Tel Aviv illegally. 3. Note to all lefties and NGOs--this is why a separation fence is needed. As I've said before-as long as Arabs feel it is okay to slaughter Jews than Israel must do whatever is necessary to protect her citizens and guests. Years ago these problems didn't exist. In the name of "peace" Oslo has empowered every Arab to take matters into his own hand. Thus the open society that DID exist ( Arabs with free access to everything--to the Temple Mount, to the beaches, to good jobs etc. etc. ) have become a thing of the past. I wonder how many Arabs in the privacy of their own homes wish for yesterday. Of course--they can't say it--speaking against the cause is hazardous to one's health.
16. To Salma:
Emmet ,   USA   (08.29.11)
You've been posting on this site for far too long - go back to your hole in the ground. Your comments have become offensive now. Enough is enough.
17. #11 Bet you know the answer
Cynthia ,   USA   (08.29.11)
He didn't attack a checkpoint of soldiers because they would be armed, ready to shoot him dead. The cowardly Islamic terrorist planned the attack on civilians. This is the garbage that wants a state.
18. You will never ever know the meaning of peace...
Neither you nor your children, and do you know why?
19. Obviously, Jewish taxi drivers need guns & training.
Bunnie Meyer ,   Los Angeles, CA USA   (08.29.11)
Arab taxi drivers need to learn maps of Jordan. You can be as politically correct as you wish, but the arabs will never accept Israel and the day will come when the vast majority of them will have to leave for another country so there can finally be peace in Israel.
20. #11 Of course you dont see the logic. That terrorist
Frank ,   USA   (08.29.11)
is your brother.
21. No spairing murdurers
damien ,   Tel Aviv   (08.29.11)
Hes a thilthy terrorist and should be killed along with all his bloodthursty friends from shchem/gaza. car theft... who you kidding...
22. my heart goes out to these young kids!!! praying for them.
Tami ,   Israel   (08.29.11)
23. another palestinian monserous terror attack. speedy recovery
Lior ,   Israel   (08.29.11)
24. these are the results of the incitment in the PA TV.
Jeremy ,   Israel   (08.29.11)
25. Salma, the Palestinians are never logical
Eyal ,   USA Israel   (08.29.11)
Why would you think this story is logical?
26. Palestinian culture at its best
Brian Cohen ,   Judean Peoples Front   (08.29.11)
Just another example of what to expect from the new UN member called "Palestine". The only question is whether the Pallies will continue to align themselves with Iran (assuming Hamas wins the next elections), with the Saudis (deeper sponsorship pockets than the Iranians), the Taliban (heck, this guy was a Taliban in training), or maybe the Syrians (remember where the Hamas leadership sits). Any way you take it, this is just a sample of the violence to come. Oh right, it's just a bad example of the Palestinian violence we already know, since he failed twice: didn't kill any Jews, and didn't martyr himself.
27. #17 Cynthy baby...
This is nothing Cynthy baby, when Iran acquires nukes, this incident would be like a stroll in the park...
28. If these kids were not horny...
Logic ,   Planet Earth   (08.29.11)
They would not have been in danger...
29. #`11 Salma
Eli ,   Yerushalayim   (08.29.11)
Why would you expect logic from palestinien terrorist? He wants to kill as much as possible, like always.
30. #10 Peter
Eli ,   Yerushalayim   (08.29.11)
Because 99% of all terror acts world wide are done by muslim terrorists.
