Prepare to watch the most legendary serving of justice with this police footage of a terrorist’s home being blown up.
An extensive security operation between Israeli police and military was carried out to demolish the east Jerusalem home of Ibrahim al-Aqari, who killed a yeshiva student and a Border Police officer in a terrorist attack in the capital last November.
When I learned further details of the terrorist attack and how al-Aqari’s family was proud of him, I appreciated this video even more.
A Hamas operative, al-Aqari struck 14 people when he intentionally drove his vehicle into two groups of Israelis waiting by the Shimon Ha Tzadik light rail station next to the ultra-Orthodox neighborhood of Shmuel Hanavi.
Al-Aqari attempted to attack more bystanders with a metal pipe after exiting his wrecked vehicle but was shot dead by an officer.
“Border Police officer Jidan Assad, 38, from the Druze village of Beit Jaan – the father of a then three-year-old son, whose wife was pregnant with their second child – was killed in the first collision.
Yeshiva student Shalom Aharon Baadani, 17, the grandson of Rabbi Shimon Baadani, a member of the Shas Party’s Council of Torah Sages, was critically wounded in the second attack, and died two days later,” journalist Daniel K. Eisenbud revealed.
Following the attack, al-Aqari’s family expressed how proud they were of him. His wife said that when he saw images of blood and wounded people during clashes with police forces at the Temple Mount earlier that morning, “He rushed out to become a martyr and hero.” Residents of the Shuafat refugee camp, where al-Aqari lived, even declared a day of mourning after his death.
Hamas and its armed wing, Izaddin al-Qassam, called al-Aqari’s vehicular homicide a “quality operation” and encouraged Palestinians to carry out more terror attacks against Israel, particularly in Jerusalem. As if that wasn’t disturbing enough, the Palestinian Authority referred to the terrorist attack as a “car accident,” and the PA’s official news agency headlined: “Jerusalem driver dies in car accident that also injured Israelis.”
It’s safe to say the demolition of this terrorist’s home was justified. Obama could learn some valuable lessons from Israeli leaders’ response to the terrorist attacks.
“Israel is a nation of law. We will not tolerate disturbances and rioting. We will act against those who throw stones, block roads and call for the establishment of a Palestinian state in place of the State of Israel. Whoever does not honor Israeli law will be punished with utmost severity,” Prime Minister Netanyahu said.
“Police forces are prepared to ensure order and security, and to prevent violence in order to allow IDF forces to carry out the order of the commander of the Homefront Command and destroy the home of the terrorist in the Shuafat refugee camp,” Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said.
