October 21: The Restoration of the Land

Yesterday we stopped in the middle of the verse, here is the rest:

Zechariah 12:6b

…but Jerusalem shall be inhabited again in her own place—Jerusalem.

PRAISE GOD FOR HIS PROMISE TO RESTORE AND FOR ISRAEL TO PREPARE THE LAND FOR THE COMING OF THE KING.

 

 

Ori, an Egged bus driver who drove behind the 78 line bus that was attacked by two Arab terrorists in Jerusalem's southeastern Armon Hanatziv neighborhood. In the attack two people, including a 60-year-old man, were murdered and 15 others wounded, eight seriously. Two terrorists conducted the attack, one armed with a gun and another with a knife; one was shot dead and the other was shot and taken into custody. "We drove out at 10 a.m., we were driving one after the other. When I reached this point, Yisrael - the other driver, my friend - got out of the bus and ran towards my bus (shouting): 'stop, stop, there's a terrorist in the bus,'" recalled Ori. "Then the terrorist started to run after him with the knife, a large knife. He ran up to my door, I closed the door and he ran back to the (other) bus." "When Yisrael tried to approach, because he had passengers in the bus, he shouted to me 'he's slaughtering them, he's slaughtering them,' and we had nothing we could do, we were trying to contact the police, there's nothing we could do. I don't have a gun, he doesn't have a gun." "The terrorist approached again, and after a moment when he understood that in the best case scenario either Yisrael gets on with me and we flee or else run him over, there's no other situation, he went back to the (other) bus and locked the passengers in the bus until the police arrived, but in the meantime what he did there..." said Ori, trailing off. Speaking about how the terrorist was neutralized, the driver continued, saying, "the police arrived, what I saw from here outside - because you can't see inside - is that they of course shot in the windows of the bus and the doors to enter. They went in, and what happened inside I have no idea."
