‘He was smiling and shooting’ – witnesses describe Tel Aviv terror attack



JPost: “He was smiling, he was smiling when he was shooting”, Noa Keren said Friday, still trying to grasp being a witness to a shooting attack that killed two people in Tel Aviv earlier in the afternoon.

Keren had just sat down with her sister at a table inside the “Sidewalk” café on the corner of Dizengoff and Gordon, when they heard what sounded like a quick series of gunshots. Moments later a man wearing all black appeared at the window a few meters in front of them, raised his gun, and opened fire.

All the while, he had a smile on his face.

Opinion: I posted two headlines on this story on BPTnews.org yesterday. Terror attacks on Israeli citizens are occurring so frequently that the headlines get blurred.

I lost count of the stabbings at 90.

But this one, with a killer opening fire with a smile on his face reminds me of why I spent 3 years researching the blood line of a killer so virulent that God Himself swore to have war with him in every generation (Exodus 17:16).

His name is Amalek and he was on the streets of Tel Aviv just before 3 p.m. on Friday.
