It’s Just Another Brick At The Windshield

If you want to know what it’s like just driving along a road when some “playful young rock thrower just practicing his hobby” jumps out and tries to kill you, here’s a video.

From Arutz 7:

A Jewish resident of Mahane Yatir, in southern Mount Hevron, was ambushed by a rock-wielding Arab youth Friday as he drove toward thecommunity of Carmel, not far from the Zif Junction.

The event was caught on video by the man’s car cam. This may be the first time such an attack is caught on video in real time, although rock attacks are common in Judea and Samaria, and have become regular occurences in Jerusalem as well. A large rock thrown into a car hurtling down a road can easily kill or maim the driver and passengers, or cause the driver to lose control of the car.

There have been numerous stone throwing stories over the last few weeks including injuries to babies, adults and an attempted lynching.

I’ll keep saying it, the stone throwers (called a “hobby” by the New York Time’s Jodi Rudoren) need to be severely dealt with. They should be fear for their lives when they do this, just like the drivers they attack.

    This whole rock throwing “hobby” should have been squashed a long time ago. You expect Israel to deal with the Iranian threat when it cannot or will not deal with these would be murderers and their bricks? The word should get out – you throw a rock and you will be shot. At times Netanyahu acts as if he is Ehud Olmert.

    while not nearly as critical a problem, we have a similar situation in the US right now.

    the “knockout game” has seen gangs of black teenagers sucker-punching whites and Asians on the streets of many large cities. and of course there has been much gnashing of teeth over how we could improve these poor young people’s lives and the usual liberal stuff. not much sympathy for the victims.

    in Brooklyn, all the victims have been Jewish, many Hasidic. but, as the newly elected councilperson of the area explains, turns out it’s all the Jews’ fault! their success has understandably irritated the not-as-successful black population.

    my brother says “Don’t worry about Israel, Hashem will protect her. worry about America.” I think he’s right.
