Updates (Israel time; most recent at top)

7:18PM: An IDF soldier has been stabbed on a bus in an apparent terror attack.

The soldier, who sustained moderate to serious wounds, told Magen David Adom emergency services personnel that the assailant was an Arab.

According to eyewitnesses, the incident occurred after the soldier stepped off a bus in the central town, on the corner of Abba Hillel street and Rashi street. Immediately afterwards, another man got off the bus, who proceeded to pull out a blade and stab the soldier in the neck.

The assailant then hastily fled the scene, the eyewitnesses said.

A manhunt for the attacker has been launched by security forces.

6:00PM: Return of the Zionist Death PigsTM!

Now with bonus potential swine flu!

5:45PM: We already suspected that Free Gaza freak Lauren Booth – who described Gaza as “the largest concentration  camp in the world” yet still managed to look very well fed during her stay there – was a moron. This confirms it (hat tip: Shy Guy)

5:38PM: 5th column watch: Israeli Police and the Shin Bet have arrested 9 Bedouin men suspected of forming a terrorist cell and planning attacks against civilians on national highways.

1:30PM: An Israeli company is leading the fight against swine flu.

An Israeli company has come up with a technology, entitled Bull Connect, to detect swine flu and other animal diseases before they spread.

The revolutionary technology can distantly screen the health and condition of each pig in a herd.

According to Sharon Soustiel, CartaSense’s chief operation officer, the system can detect illness and prompt isolation.

“With this technology, I can know in real time about any epidemic breakout, and I can monitor it and immediately isolate the area,” the Jerusalem Post quoted Sharon as saying.

The Petah Tikva start-up had developed the technology to look over herds of cattle, but it has been accorded a renewed significance keeping in mind the recent outbreak of swine flu in Mexico since it can also be used to monitor pigs.

Sharon explained a sensor was put on every animal’s ear that monitored its temperature, heart rate, respiratory rate and location.

Sharon said: “All of this physical information can give us in real time the information to know if the cattle are sick or not. We make a wireless network from all of the cattle.”

The product is expected to hit the market in less than a year.

10:47AM: According to a French report, the IAF recently staged maneuvers between Israel and Gibraltar near southern Spain, proving we plan to strike Iran if Tehran continues with its refusal to cooperate with the international community.

Meanwhile, according to the JPost, air force reservists who operate the Arrow and Patriot missile defense systems have recently begun spending one day a week on duty to sharpen their skills.

5:55AM: Dr. Charles Jacobs, co-founder of Camera, talks about media bias against Israel with some guy who might possibly be the world’s worst interviewer.
