Jerusalem Heating Up Intifada Style

The Israeli Defense Forces shot and killed a Palestinian-American teenager during clashes on Friday. The teen, Orwah Hammad, 14, was shot in the head in Silwad, a village north of Ramallah.

Hammad allegedly hurled a Molotov cocktail at cars in the West Bank in an attempt to burn Jews to death, but "terrorists will be terrorists," as they say.

An Israeli army spokesman said the IDF "managed to prevent an attack when they encountered a Palestinian man hurling a Molotov cocktail at them on the main road next to Silwad. They opened fire and they confirmed a hit."

This is often what happens when a person tries to kill another person with a Molotov cocktail and the other person has a rifle.

But the Friday clashes went on in the Arab areas in and around Jerusalem and several people were injured.

Ever the anti-Israel mouthpiece for Obama, Jen Psaki called for a "speedy and transparent investigation," not like the ones we had in Benghazi or Fast and Furious.

"The United States expresses its deepest condolences to the family of a U.S. citizen minor who was killed by the Israeli Defense Forces during clashes in Silwad on October 24," Jen Psaki said, adding that US officials will remain "closely engaged with the local authorities, who have the lead on this investigation."

It really is a tragedy about this poor kid, but it's understandable how it happened. I feel sorrow for his family.

Just the day before this occurred, a Jewish-American baby, 3 months old, was killed and 8 people were hurt when a Palestinian man slammed his car into a group of people standing at a Jerusalem light rail stop. It was described by police as a deliberate attack (which I describe as a jihadist attack that followed an accidental killing of a Palestinian girl, Enas Shawkat, 5, by an Israeli motorist). The Israeli driver was not arrested due to the nature of the accident.

The Palestinian jihadist, a man with a criminal record, was shot and killed. 

May his 72 virgins all be nuns with AK 47s and a bad attitude toward what Islam is doing to Christians.

So West Bank tensions are increasing and there are fears of new intifada in the making.
