Below are two headlines regarding today's incident at the Jerusalem light rail station.
Terrorist kills infant, wounds several, after ramming car into crowd in Jerusalem
Palestinian shot by Israeli police in Jerusalem
Eyewitnesses said Abd al-Rahman al-Shaludi, 20, was shot by Israeli guards at the light rail station after he lost control of his vehicle and hit commuters standing nearby.
(UPDATE: Palestinian news site Maan changed the headline to read, Police: Infant killed in Jerusalem attack, Palestinian driver shot.)
Israel Hatzolah tweeted that hundreds were visiting the kever of Shimon Hatzadik as it his yahrzheit today.
“The Rabbis taught: The year that Shimon HaTzaddik died, he told them that, in this year, he would die. They asked him, ‘How do you know?’ He replied to them, ‘Every Yom Kippur, an old man wearing white and wrapped in white appeared to me; he entered with me (into the Kodesh Kodoshim) and left with me, but today an old man wearing black and wrapped in black entered with me but did not leave with me.’ After the Yom Tov (of Sukkos), [Shimon HaTzaddik] was ill for seven days and died.”
Just days after posting a video that purported to show a New York City cop racially profiling two men in Islamic garb, the producers of the clip — who also star in it — have admitted that “it was a dramatization” and that it was not “an actual event.”
