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.
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.
