The Islamic State has called for jihad attacks against Infidel civilians, and we see them increasingly — in Israel, Europe and the U.S. But authorities are content to wave their hands and insist it has nothing to do with Islam, which means they have no clue as to the motive of these attacks and don’t want one, which means there will be many more such attacks.

Tel Aviv (AFP) – A knife-wielding Palestinian attacked passengers on a bus in Tel Aviv on Wednesday wounding at least 12 people before being shot by a passing prison officer, Israeli police said.
It was the first attack in Tel Aviv since mid-November when a young Israeli soldier was stabbed to death by a Palestinian.
The attacker struck in the morning rush hour in the heart of Israel’s commercial capital, police spokeswoman Luba Samri said, describing him as a “terrorist.”
Twelve people were wounded in the attack, including three who were in serious condition, four in moderate condition and five who sustained light injuries, hospital sources said.
Another seven people were treated for shock.
“The terrorist stabbed the bus driver several times but the driver fought back until he fled on foot and was neutralised by a guard from the prisons’ service,” a police statement said.
He was shot in the leg then taken to hospital for further investigation.
Witnesses told army radio the driver apparently used pepper spray or tear gas to try to stop the attack.
Brief footage from the scene broadcast by Israeli television channels showed people fleeing a man who rams a knife into the back of a woman, then runs on when she collapses.
Police identified the attacker as a 23-year-old Palestinian from Tulkarem in the northern West Bank, who was staying in Israel illegally….
