An Arab terrorist stabbed a Jewish Israeli between the Judean town of Kiryat Arba and Hebron on Saturday. But before the knife could penetrate his body, it ‘miraculously’ broke preventing the Terrorist from stabbing anyone else. The victim was moderately injured with a stab wound to his shoulder.
The victim, 22-year-old Moshe Greenblatt, is a field organizer for the far-right Otzmah Yehudit (Jewish power) political party.
From his hospital bed, Greenblatt recalls the incident saying: “Thank God, I feel fine. Thank God the knife broke before it penetrated me”. Greenblatt attributed the knife breaking to the inability of the suspect to stab the other Jewish Israelis in his immediate vicinity. He then thanked God for what he called a “miracle” saying: “Thank God, many, many miracles.”
Greenblatt then lamented the Israeli government’s inaction adding how “pathetic” it is that a Jew “can not go to every place in Israel, especially Hebron, a place that belongs to us.” He then blamed Israel’s security forces for a lackluster approach to terrorism adding: “the people responsible for the security like the Defense Minister and all those people, are doing nothing to prevent this or ensure that incidents like these don’t happen in the future.”
The terrorist who stabbed Greenblatt was arrested by the IDF and Police shortly after the incident. The suspect resisted arrest as his family members tried to prevent his detention. A violent melee ensued as seen in the video below:
