Security footage of the event show Barkat (in white shirt) lunge at the terrorist who walks into the junction after stabbing the Israeli man.

Ali Yahya, Israel’s first Arab ambassador, dies
Also recognized for his contributions to the teaching of the Arabic language, diplomat served in Greece and Finland
Ali Yahya, who was Israel’s first Arab ambassador, died on Thursday in Kfar Qara.
Yahya, who was 66, was to be laid to rest the same day.
He was first appointed ambassador to Finland in 1995, a position he held until 1999.
In 2006 he was appointed ambassador to Greece.
Yahya was renowned for his efforts in teaching the Arabic language in Israel.
He taught for many years at the Akiva Language Institute in Netanya, where he served as director.
On the heels of Finland’s major political scandal which saw it’s vice-chairman of a foreign council committee, Perttu Salolainen smear wealthy US Jews with an antisemitic canard of owning the US media, the Finns now follow suit by pulling their ambassadors from their embassy in Tel Aviv.
NOTE: We are not dealing with people (in Europe) who value logic, truth and facts. They are ideologically bound and no amount of explaining the details to them will matter.
Despite claims to the contrary, building in E1 would not necessarily undermine the contiguity of a future Palestinian state.
