Two Palestinian terrorists Wednesday morning attempted to stab Border Policemen at Qalandiya checkpost north of Jerusalem before being shot and killed by security forces. No injuries were reported.Here are apparently the identity papers of the woman, Maryam Saleh Abu-Ismail:
Two terrorists, one female and one male, attempted to walk through a passage intended for vehicle entry and began speeding up in the direction of Border policemen stationed at the scene. The female assailant was carrying a knife.
The police called upon them to stop several times. However they continued to quickly approach in their direction causing the police to neutralize them.
According to this, she is a 23-year old mother of two girls.
We'll probably never know if she decided to become a martyr because of incessant incitement in Palestinian media, or if she wanted to do it as an "honorable" way to commit suicide and escape an abusive marriage. Or both.
What we do know is that it takes a sick society to create a woman who would want to make her children orphans.
(It is also bizarre that the Hebrew identity papers identify her birthplace as "Al Quds," not Jerusalem.)
