Pretty soon they will be blaming global warming on ‘Innocence of Muslims.’
A woman from east Jerusalem’s Silwan neighborhood tried to stab an officer at the parking lot of the Shalem police station on Sunday.
Police suspect the attack, which took place at around 7:30 am, was linked to the anti-Islam film ‘Innocence of Muslims,’ which mocks the prophet Mohammed.
According to an initial investigation, the 32-year-old woman approached the police officer as he was walking in the parking lot and attempted to stab him with a knife. Following a short struggle the officer restrained the woman. No one was injured in the incident.
Arab youngsters recently rioted near the Old City’s Damascus Gate in protest against the film, which sparked fierce riots by Muslim worldwide. The protesters began marching towards the US Consulate but were blocked by police officers who used stun grenades against them. Several officers were lightly injured by stones. Some protesters were detained.
On Thursday the Jerusalem District Court rejected a request filed by Arab leaders who sought a temporary injunction to block Israeli web access to the anti-Islam film.
