A video captured on film a young Arab female terrorist stabbing a Jewish guard at one of the separation barrier checkpoints where critics claim Arabs are “humiliated” by security checks. The security guard suffered light to moderate wounds, and the attacker was arrested.

The video was uploaded several times on the YouTube website but was mysteriously removed repeatedly.

The film apparently was posted by police and probably was filmed from the security apparatus installed at the crossing where the 21-year-old woman attacked.

The video shows her apparently waiting patiently to go through the inspection station. When the guard was looking the other way, she suddenly lunged at him and thrust a knife into a part of his body that was not covered by a protective vest.

He fell to the ground, and another security guard immediately came to his rescue and arrested the terrorist, who was later questioned by security authorities.

The attack occurred at the Kalandia crossing, on the northern edge of Jerusalem on the road leading to Jewish communities in northern Samaria. Officials of the American government, as well as spokesmen for pro-Arab media and groups, often refer to the security checks as “humiliating.”
