The Jerusalem District Attorney´s Office filed charges Thursday
against Muhammad Shuman, 18, of Beit Hanina, for attempted murder, in
the stabbing of a female soldier two weeks ago.
He was also charged with possession of a knife and obstructing
According to the charge sheet, Shuman was motivated to murder after
he "watched news reports on Al Jazeera, Al Manar, Al Quds, Al Aqsa
and CNN over the last three years, and felt great frustration from
the situation of the Palestinians and the security checks at Kalandia
crossing." He "felt that he had to ´do a deed´ and stab the soldier
so as to cause her death."
Al Manar is Hizbullah´s TV station. Al Quds and Al Aqsa are run by
Hamas, and CNN is owned by Turner Broadcasting System.
The investigation has discovered that the terrorist left his home in
Beit Hanina, north of Jerusalem, on the morning of March 15, equipped
with a knife. When he reached the gate to the school where he
studies, he decided not to go in, and at 10 a.m. he took the light
rail back to his home. When he got on the train, he saw soldier –
Yehudit Aharon, 19 – and sat down opposite her.
"A few minutes later, the train stopped at Beit Hanina," says the
charge sheet. "The accused got up from his seat and approached the
soldier, took the knife out of his pocket and stabbed her in the left
side of the chest with the aim of killing her. After the first stab,
the soldier tried to protect her body and the accused stabbed her a
second time, with the aim of killing her, wounding her in the arm and
chest. Immediately after this he ran and escaped from the train."
He then got on a bus toward Kalandia, with the aim of hiding with
relatives in Ramallah. During the bus ride, he threw the knife out
the window of the bus. This information somehow reached the police.
At the Kalandia crossing, he was arrested, and he admitted his crime
in the initial interrogation.
The investigation found that he acted independently and was not
affiliated with any terror group. (IsraelNationalNews © 2012 03/29/12)
