Too bad these good citizens can’t be armed, only if they’re in the military or former soldiers can, but on the other hand, if they allowed all citizens to arm themselves, it would have to include the Arabs as well.
Firebomb Hurled at Residential Home in Jerusalem
By Cynthia Blank
A firebomb was thrown Saturday night at an apartment balcony in southeast Jerusalem in what police are calling a terrorist attack.
Fire broke out on the balcony at the building located on Meir Nakar Street in the Armon HaNatziv (East Talpiot) neighborhood. It was extinguished quickly. No injuries were reported but the balcony itself was damaged.
Fire and Rescue Services arrived at the scene to limit the damage of the attack. Meanwhile police and Border Patrol officers began searching nearby in Jabel Mukaber, a Jerusalem Arab neighborhood, in an attempt to locate suspects.
Marcel Kornicher, one of the building’s tenants, said that he and his wife were sitting in their living room when the incident occurred.
“My wife suddenly saw fire and we had no idea why,” he told Ynet. “We heard a boom which was extremely frightening. We were in shock. The bomb did not penetrate the apartment, but if it had gotten into our house, it could have set the house on fire. We saw what kind of damage firebombs can do last week.”
Kornicher added that stones had been thrown at their building multipletimes from Jabel Mukaber. Two months ago, a firework was also thrown at the house.
