More deadly attacks in Israel

Shortly after 3 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 23, a stabbing terrorist attack took place at a gas station near the community of Beit Horon, on route 443 which connects Jerusalem with Modi’in.

A young man of around 18 years old was critically wounded in the attack. He was initially resuscitated by Magen David Adom paramedics, but they eventually pronounced his death.

MDA paramedic Uri Gavriel said: “At the entrance to the gas station laid a young man, around 20 years old, unconscious and with stab wounds in his upper body. He wasn’t breathing and did not have a pulse. We gave him medical treatment and continuously resuscitated him, but the wounds were severe and we were forced to pronounce his death at the scene.”

Poland's defense minister credits Protocols

Poland's defense minister credits ProtocolsWARSAW — Poland’s new defense minister has asserted that the anti-Semitic Protocols of the Elders of Zion is true. The appointment of Antoni Macierewicz of the right-wing Justice and Law Party, which earned a majority in the country’s recent national elections, was announced last week.
