JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- A Jewish Israeli man was stabbed in Jerusalem on Saturday evening in an incident that local police forces suspect had "nationalist" motives.

Israeli sources said that a suspect who "seemed to be" a Palestinian stabbed a 30-year-old Israeli in the neck before fleeing in the direction of Highway 1.

Israeli newspaper the Jerusalem Post said the incident occurred in the vicinity of Damascus Gate in occupied East Jerusalem.

Israeli police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld was reported by the Jerusalem Post to have said that the assailant stabbed the victim from behind without provocation, referring to the stabbing as most probably a "terrorist attack."

Israeli police forces are still searching for the suspect.

Palestinian sources referred to the Israeli victim as a "settler," but it was unclear where he was from.

Ambulance crews from Magen David Adom hospital arrived on the scene to treat the victim before transferring him to Shaare Zedek Hospital.

His injuries were described as moderate.

Standard Palestinian policy - attack all Israeli civilians, then blame the civilians for attracting the attack. This is just another in decades of Palestinian crimes against humanity.

The term "nationalist" has me puzzled. Could this be explained ?

I really hope he'll recover as soonest. But to blame all a society (the Palestinians) for it follows exactly the same thought pattern used by the criminal agressor. Peace

To #1, "this is just another in decades of Palestinian crimes against humanity." Are you forgetting that Israeli Zionists teach their children that killing non-Jews is A-OK? That they're lesser than roaches and should be squashed? Your so-called society has lost its humanity long ago when it teaches its children to do this: http://www.maannews.net/eng/ViewDetails.aspx?ID=664087 Lest we forget that YOU ARE THE OPPRESSOR.

I accept up to some degree when Gazans fire rockets in the meaning of resistance against occupation. However, I will never tolerate when Palestinians stab a sleeping solder in the bus(West Bank) or a civilian in Jerusalem. If Pa lestinians have such "heroes" they do not need enemies.
