A group of some 20 Arabs attacked a Jewish family as they drove to
their home in Tekoa on Thursday afternoon.
Akiva Ami-El, his wife Keterya, and their two-year old son Benaiya
were coming home from a shopping trip in the Gush Etzion city of
Efrata when a gang of Arab students began pelting their car with
stones and bricks.
"We were coming home from shopping at Rami Levi [discount supermarket
chain, ed.]," Ami-El related. "We were driving past Tekua – Arab
Tekoa – a little before 1PM, when school let out. The kids came out
to the road like they do every day."
"I saw an Arab kid pick up a large stone on one side of the road,
while kids on the other side of the road picked up bricks," Ami-El
related. "And then they just started smashing us, like they do. I
just kept going."
“Thankfully, we made it home okay,” Ami-El added.
Arab ambushes of passing cars driven by Jews in Judea and Samaria is
a daily and potentially life threatening occurrence.
Last September, Asher Palmer and his infant son Yonatan were killed
when Arabs hurled a massive stone through his windshield near Hevron.
The stone smashed through the glass and struck Palmer´s head, causing
him to lose control of the car and go off the road.
Both father and son were later declared to be Victims of Terror by
Israel´s government. (IsraelNationalNews © 2012 04/19/12)
