Amazing video of an Israeli man wielding a pizza board to subdue a Palestinian terrorist has just been released. Last week a Palestinian man carried out a stabbing attack in the central city of Petah Tikva and proceeded to stab a bus driver who was eating lunch in the store. The video shows Shlomi Madar swinging down the counter-top so that the terrorist can’t easily get to him and he swiftly hits the terrorist in the face with a pizza board. Police have said if not for Shlomi’s swift and heroic reaction, the terrorist would have continued to stab a victim who had just slipped and fallen right in-front of the terrorist.
“I heard screams coming from the shwarma shop two stores down and I immediately understood what was happening,” 24-year-old Shlomi Madar told the Times of Israel. “When he ran in front of my shop and I saw the knife, I quickly swung down the counter-top so he couldn’t get to me.”
Madar recounted, “I picked up the pizza board and slammed it into his nose as hard as I could. He fell backward, dropped the knife and started running away.”
The terrorist — a 21-year-old man from the West Bank city of Qalqilya — was arrested unharmed. According to media reports, he told investigators he was motivated by the ongoing tensions over the Temple Mount and the metal detectors that were put in place at the entrances to the Jerusalem holy compound following the July 14 terrorist attack there in which two Israeli police officers were killed.
One Israeli man — an Arab bus driver — was moderately-to-severely wounded in Monday’s stabbing assault.
In recent years, Israelis have used a wide variety of objects to fend off Palestinian attackers. For example, in March 2016, an Israeli man broke his guitar over the head of a Palestinian terrorist who was in the midst of conducting a deadly stabbing spree on the boardwalk in Jaffa.
