March 6, 2015 – San Francisco, CA – PipeLineNews.org – As the Jerusalem Post is reporting, “The east Jerusalem terrorist who rammed his car into a crowd of Border Policewomen on Shimon Hatzadik Street in the capital on Friday has been identified by authorities as Mohammed Mahmoud Abdel Razek Salaima…” [source, Purim Attack: Shin Bet interrogates family of east Jerusalem terrorist , JPost]

The incident occurred during the celebration of Purim, a time set aside for observing Israel’s deliverance from the hands of a despotic Persian official.

On Friday morning, the suspect, Mohammed Mahmoud Abdel Razek Salaima, drove his car into a group of people who were standing at a light rail station. He then exited the vehicle with a knife whereupon he was shot by security personnel.

Salaima is currently in critical condition in a local hospital.

The suspect’s family is undergoing interrogation about the matter to see what, if any, connections the terrorist has with known jihadist groups.

Israeli security officials are concerned that today’s violence might signal the beginning of another series of deadly vehicular attacks such as those which took place last October and November.

As we noted at the time:

“In the second such attack in less than two weeks, today a “Palestinian” Islamic jihadist killed at least one person and injured more than a dozen others as he drove a car into a train platform in East Jerusalem which was clogged with commuters.

In mid October a similar vehicle assault left two dead, one of which was a baby girl. Fox News is reporting that HAMAS, the Muslim Brotherhood terrorist entity sworn to genocide against the Jews, has expressed support for this indiscriminate act of terrorism against civilians.

"We praise this heroic operation," said Hamas official Fawzi Barhoum. "We call for more such ... operations." [source, One Dead After Car Rams Jerusalem Train Platform In Terrorist Attack , Fox News]…” [source, Another Day, Another Terrorist Car Attack In Jerusalem , PipeLineNews.org]

As of this writing none of the Arab terror organizations in the region have taken credit for the attack.
