The Demise Of Knife Man

Is it a bird?

It it a plane?

No, it’s Knife Man!

And Israel killed him.

I wonder who Knife Man was.

This guy?

One of these guys?

Nope. It was this guy:

Palestinian terrorist was shot and killed Monday morning near Lion’s Gate, in the Arab Quarter of Jerusalem’s Old City, after attempting to stab a Border Police officer. It was the third such attack at the contested site in less than 10 days.

According to police, at approximately 9 a.m., the unidentified assailant, whom police deemed suspicious, was asked to stop for inspection. The suspect then withdrew a knife from his pocket and charged one of the officers, stabbing him in his metal breastplate.

At the risk of being blunt, WTF Reuters. Knife Man?

Update: A hero emerges: Nunchuk Man!
