Jerusalem Arabs demonstrate against bulldozer terror

Tuesday, March 17, 2009 |  Israel Today Staff

About 35 bulldozer drivers, most of them Arab residents of Jerusalem, demonstrated on Tuesday against the use of construction vehicles in recent terrorist attacks in the Israeli capital.

The demonstration took place at Jerusalem's Teddy Stadium, about 100 yards from the most recent bulldozer terrorist attack.

Two police officers were wounded when an Arab bulldozer driver attacked their patrol vehicle at a nearby intersection earlier this month. The terrorist then targeted a bus full of schoolchildren stopped at the intersection, but was stopped short when another police officer and a taxi driver opened fire on him.

Last July, three people were killed and 44 wounded when a terrorist driving a massive earthmoving bulldozer went on a rampage in downtown Jerusalem.

Less than two weeks after that attack, a copycat terrorist used his bulldozer to wound 16 motorists, including passengers on a city bus, on Jerusalem's King David Street.

The attacks have left most Jewish residents of the capital extremely wary of Arab road workers.
