Attacking the Wrong Guys

A near fatal terrorist attack was averted today, thanks to the quick thinking of one of the targeted victims…and the bad judgment of the terrorist, who learned the hard way that in a game of Rock Scissors Paper Knife Gun, gun usually wins.

An Israeli hitchhiker shot dead a knife-wielding Palestinian in the West Bank on Monday afternoon after the man tried to stab him and a companion as they waited for a ride near the settlement of Shiloh.

An investigation into the incident ascertained that the two hitchers spotted a man running toward them, carrying a knife with a 20-cm blade. One of the two hitchhikers pulled out his personal weapon and shot the man.

Magen David Adom emergency service personnel pronounced the Palestinian dead at the scene.

While this was clearly not a humorous event, and I am extremely thankful that it was the bad guy who was killed, I couldn’t help but visualize this scene after reading the report of the knife-wielding terrorist taking on the Israeli with a gun.
