With the murder of the Henkins and the crying of their 6 orphan children still fresh in our minds, the terrorists have decided they would give us more reasons to grieve.
Two Jews are dead, and two others were wounded Saturday night after a Palestinian terrorist stabbed five Israelis in the Old City, and then shot a gun wildly into a crowd of tourists before being shot and killed by Border Police.
According to Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld, the attack occurred at approximately 7:30 p.m., when the unidentified suspect began stabbing the family members while they were walking past Lion’s gate, en route to the Western Wall.
After stabbing two others, Rosenfeld said the terrorist took a pistol from one of the victims and fired wildly into a crowd of tourists before being shot and killed by Border Police officer on patrol some 50 meters away.

BBC. No words.

Meanwhile, Al Arabiya seems to be behind the news cycle. And the photo is a curious choice.
Update: Max Blumenthal sees the terrorist attack as an “operation” i.e. legitimate resistance and the victims as “settlers”
