An Arab grandmother, an "accident", what we were told, what we know now

...Allegations that the Israelis have carried out "extra-judicial executions" are now a fixed part of the ritual, adopted by Palestinian Authority figures, by anonymous editors and reporters, and by members of the terrorists' family and/or clan. For foreign consumption only, the attackers are presented as being as innocent and pure as the driven snow.

They found a large commando knife in her handbag after the woman was rushed away to hospital in Jerusalem. She died there of her injuries.

Here's a clip of the attack as captured by an IDF helmet-mounted video camera:

In the immediate aftermath, the propaganda machine serving the Palestinian Arab side got busy with its customary denials and accusations:
