Arab terrorists attempted to murder a Jewish motorist near Hevron Thursday morning. The man is Shai Malka, Director of the Manhigut Yehudit faction within Likud, which was founded by MK Moshe Feiglin.

The terrorists threw a large rock at Malka's car as it drove down Route 60, from a truck that was speeding down the road in the opposite direction. The same method of attack was used to murder Asher Palmer and his baby son Yonatan, in September of 2011, in the same region.  

"Thank G-d," wrote Malka on his Facebook page. "This is the rock that was thrown at me in the noontime hours from a passing truck on Route 60, about 200 meters north of Har Manoah at Har Hevron.

"Miraculously, the rock only hit a tire and not the window. I almost lost control of the vehicle but G-d was with me and I managed to stop…

"What do I think of this?

"That the army needs to wake up, and the state and the residents do, too… blah blah blah... But it seems that until we have a leadership of faith, this may be what our life's routine looks like.

"When the state of Israel gives up on its own sovereignty at the Temple Mount, the heart of Jerusalem, -- it is declaring, in effect, that this is not our land. And if this is not our land, then when we drive on the roads of Judea and Samaria, we are 'occupiers' and it makes sense that we will be attacked with rocks."
