Israeli Uses Disproportionate Force To Harm Palestinian

An Israeli mother in the small agricultural community of Sde Avraham managed to fight off an armed terrorist on Monday, saving herself and her young children from murder, Maariv/nrg reports.

Yael Matzpun was sleeping in a room with her four-year-old daughter and two-year-old son when she was awoken by heavy footsteps in the hall. She knew that her husband, an IDF officer, was not due at home.

“Suddenly I saw a terrorist in a kefiyyeh [head scarf] standing opposite me,” she told Maariv. “I decided that if I didn’t fight, he would murder me and my four children, there would be a massacre like in Itamar, where the Fogels and three of their children were murdered in their home.”

The terrorist turned on the light and said something in Arabic, she recalled. He had a knife in one hand and a metal pipe in the other. Suddenly he lunged at Yael, stabbing her in the face and shoulder.

What the terrorist did not know is that Yael is an athlete trained in Krav Maga, Israeli military hand-to-hand combat. She used her skills to drive him back and into the bathroom, and locked him in. At the same time, she pushed her young children to safety.

Once the terrorist was locked away, she called for help. IDF forces arrived only to see the terrorist escaping through a bathroom window. They gave chase and attempted to arrest him, but were forced to open fire when he refused to drop his weapons. The terrorist was killed.

“The terrorist fell into the wrong woman’s hands, from his point of view,” Yael’s father said. “Even when she was a young girl, she would hug me like a vice… After she learned Krav Maga she was always able to take down thugs.”

Sde Avraham is located in southern Israel, several kilometers from the Gaza security barrier.

Update: You just don’t mess with a Krav Maga woman!

    I think krav maga woman might have some “Daddy” issues. But don’t tell her I said so.

    When Nachlat Shiva, the third Jewish neighborhood outside Jerusalem was established out of the “Old Yishuv” in 1869, the wife of the first “settler” was attacked by a Bedoin. She managed to get the knife from him and stab him to death. Unofrtunately, it was too nuch for her and she died of a heart attack.

    Her husband stayed right there, and Nachlat Shiva is now in the heart of the city, next to Zion square. (The next settlement to be built was Meah Shearim.)

    So Mrs. Matzpun follows a long tradition, although in this case the end was more positive.

    The video reminds me of an ad I once saw by a dominatrix. “Beginners receive firm, capable training. Everybody else gets exactly what they deserve.”

    1-0 casualty ratio, the humanity. Israel kills Arabs relentlessly.

    “Jewish Mother Fights Terrorist” a delicious headline filled with wonderful subcontext. After disarming her attacker I can well imagine a good amount of berating and guilt-tripping being dished out. “With a knife this size you were planning an attack? You ought to have your head examined! And why don’t you call your mother more often?”

    Asah to Ms. Matzpun! At my taekwondo school we have a saying: don’t let the ponytail fool you. Sparring with female opponents is never fun because they’re usually more flexible (so it’s easy for them to kick you in the head) and they’re usually quicker (so it’s tougher for you to block). This dude should have just stayed in the bathroom.

    I expect KAPO Dickie to lament the death of this promising young man any minute now
