An accident. Right.

This morning, on the day which the Arabs call 'Nabka Day' (commemorating the 'catastrophe' of Israel coming into existence) an Arab truck driver in Tel Aviv crashed into a bus and several cars... killing one person and injuring at least five others.

He then went on ramming cars for several kilometers before being stopped and arrested.

And he is now claiming that it was an accident (and not a deliberate terror attack).

Forgive me if I'm a bit skeptical.

Probably drunk behind the wheel.

Other news reports I read today listed this incident among other acts of Palestinian protest.

I thought I read that the driver yelled Allu Akbar - is that true?

Jordan Hirsch... 'protest'? Really. Are you really calling the deliberate killing and injuring of civilians a 'protest'?

Jesus, David, stop being a paranoid jew. There were protests all day long. Some were violent, like this one. I am not minimizing it, I am saying that right away, much of the media was aware that this one was part of a larger pattern of violent Palestinian...protest. I am actually surprised that anyone thought he could get awat with claiming this was an accident.
