An Arab driver intentionally crashed his Caterpillar bulldozer into a city bus and hit two cars in central Jerusalem Tuesday afternoon in an apparent effort to recreate the terror attack in the capital several weeks ago. The bulldozer reportedly left a construction site opposite Liberty Bell Bark near the corner of King David Street in the heart of the city, wounding one person moderately and several more lightly. The driver was first shot by a civilian, but kept smashing cars until being shot dead by a border policeman.My guess is that the police realize this time that they could make things worse for themselves by going by the notion that they're not allowed to use deadly force to prevent monsters like that one from murdering innocents. I'm glad if they're acting responsibly this time. They're also going to be monitoring Arab workers at construction sites in order to prevent further attacks of this sort.
