Quiet for all of, oh, four months, terror returned to Jerusalem this morning. Three Israelis died, as did the rampaging driver a bulldozer that plowed through crowds and cars near Jaffa Road and Sarei Yisrael Street. An off-duty soldier ended the ordeal when he grab a security guards gun and jumped into the Caterpillar’s cabin:
“At one point he [the driver] yelled out “Allah Akhbar” [God is great] and stepped on the gas pedal,” Plesser recalled. “I drew the weapon of the civilian who was with me and shot the driver three times in the head. I think I did what is expected from every soldier and citizen.”
