    This guy is a real terrorist. I don't care if he is an Arab terrorist or an Israeli terrorist. I hope he gets what he deserves. The ELECTRIC CHAIR.

    Kudos to the authorities for catching this slime.

    Why has CNN called the stabber a racist, he stabbed 2 white people, do you have facts to support racism or is it just a theory. The country is sensitive enough to race at this time, do you wish to fuel the fire without any real facts? Guess so!
