Palestinians Stone Car Near Yerushalayim, Driver Escapes Unharmed


B’chasdei Shamayim, a Jewish woman driving on Route 60 north of Yerushalayim Thursday morning emerged unharmed after her car was targeted by masked, rock-throwing Palestinians, Arutz Sheva reported.

Ayelet Lash, 27, a well-known figure in the Shomron region, said she was almost killed in the attack, which shattered the windshield of her car.

“So much shattered glass,” she wrote in a posting shortly afterwards. “My whole body is shaking. Arabs tried to kill me. [G-d] saved me… I’m crying from the shock and despair.”

After the attack, Lash called the police, who advised her to file a formal complaint. Lash did so, but was skeptical that anything would come of it.

“I said to the officer, ‘I wonder what would happen if I stood and threw a stone at an Arab on this road. It would be the end of my life. They’d hold me in jail until I was 120.”

“It can’t continue this way,” she declared. “It’s impossible to live with your enemies, allowing them to drive alongside you, and then have them (throw) stones at you. There is no reason for Arabs to travel on this road… If there is a reason for the Arabs to be here, it is to continue to kill us. And the politicians are silent.”

Lash, a resident of Rehelim in the Shomron and mother of three, has survived previous terror attacks on the same road. A few months ago, a Molotov cocktail was thrown at her car.
