As Barack bumbles his way through his grand brand marketing tour of the Middle East and Europe, which largely consists of attempting to look Presidential in front of a lap dog press corp against ancient backdrops, the Islamic jihad spits in his face and attacks Jews in Jerusalem just yards from Obama's hotel ( the second such attack in 3 weeks).
Watching Barack answer questions in Jordan, one has to pray that the American people see how he stutters and stumbles and essentially says nothing when speaking off the cuff. If the folks are watching him, this "world tour" will do him more harm than good, if one goes past the photo ops of course. He actually looks like he is playing President for a day.
He cannot handle what he is attempting to pull off.
He is speaking to the press corp now in Jordan. He is babbling now about Israel having to make compromises as if Oslo, Gush Katif, Gaza wasn't enough. The "Israeli government is divided" uncertain and their Palestinian people are divided between Hamas and Fatah [between deadly and deadlier].The Palestinians "have to feel some sense of progress" in their economic conditions i theyf "cant get to make a living" they get frustrated. If "they can't get to their jobs" they're frustrated. Is he kidding?

Another Bulldozer Attack in Jerusalem: 23 Wounded
For the second time in three weeks, an Arab commandeered a bulldozer to commit a terrorist attack. He wounded 12 before being shot and killed.
The terrorist began his attempt to murder Jews on King David St. near the Yemin Moshe neighborhood. He took a tractor from a construction site, and began plowing into vehicles along the street, hitting at least three cars - one of which he completely overturned - and a bus. One driver was able to escape from his car even though the tractor plowed it into a bus stop. When the terrorist reached the intersection of Keren HaYesod St., a citizen and Border Guard policeman shot and killed him. The entire incident was over very quickly, eyewitnesses said.
Less than three weeks ago, an Arab from eastern Jerusalem killed three people in a similar attack before he was himself killed by a heroic yeshiva student/soldier. The tractor used in today's attack was smaller than the one used in the previous one.
Of the 23 injured, one is reported in moderate condition - apparently with an amputated leg - and the others have light injuries or are suffering from trauma. Among them are a woman and her nine-month-old baby son.
Gag-Order on Terrorist's Name
The dead tractor terrorist was an Israeli citizen, living in Um Tuba, a south-eastern Jerusalem Arab neighborhood not far from Sur Baher. His name was publicized over the radio, and minutes later, a gag order prohibiting it from being disseminated was publicized - apparently because of his family connections with a an orange-bearded Hamas legislator who has been jailed for involvement in terrorism.
UPDATE: Jew hating liberal bias? I’m sure they’ll change it soon. Right now it reads, “Driver killed after Jerusalem tractor rampage”. MSNBC (no wonder the jihad media loves Oybomba).(hat tip Michael)
UPDATE DEBKA has the Muslim terrorists name (hat tip Van) When will the Jews stop hiring their killers??
At least 23 injured by rampaging bulldozer in copycat attack on main Jerusalem street
A quick-thinking passing civilian and a border guard officer shot the driver dead Tuesday, July 22, after two vehicles and a bus were rammed opposite the Liberty Bell Park, 200 yards from King David Hotel where UK premier Brown stayed Monday.
At least 23 people were hurt, one seriously. Two are children. The bulldozer burst out of a nearby building site in Yemin Moshe. The terrorist was Ghassen Abu Tir, 22, from Umm Tuba, a Palestinian village in southeast Jerusalem, who was employed at the building site. He was a relative of Muhammed Abu Tir, a Hamas lawmaker held in an Israeli jail.
