He described how a guard cocked his weapon, causing the attacker to drop his knife and allowing Barkat and his guards to overpower him. "It's clear to me that if the terrorist had continued stabbing, he would not be alive right now. But because he dropped the knife we overpowered the terrorist, and I hope he is punished appropriately."

Asaf Na'amani, the guard who drew his gun, recalled: "From the moment we jumped out of the car, I noticed a terrorist armed with knife trying to cross the street. I told him to drop the knife; he froze in place and then dropped it. The mayor and I jumped on him and wrestled him to the ground. In our world, there's no such thing as hesitation – there's only yes or no."

 

Barkat, 55, served as an officer in the paratroopers' brigade. A former high-tech entrepreneur, he was elected as Israel's mayor of Jerusalem in 2008.

Abraham Goldstein, the victim, recalled the attack: "I felt a sharp blow in my stomach. I began shouting that there was a stabbing and that they should move away, then he came to stab me again and I blocked him with my tefilin."
