Over in Israel a 40 year old named Yonatan Azarihab was able to pull a knife out of his neck after he had been stabbed by a terrorist and used it to kill his attacker.
Azrihab – an ultra orthodox Jew – was collecting money for charity in Petah Tikva when he walked into a wine shop. A Palestinian man followed him into the shop and began stabbing him multiple times in the upper body before leaving the knife stuck in his neck.
The store owner managed to attack the Palestinian and subdue him long enough for Azrihab to flee the store, but he very quickly returned, pulled the knife out of his neck and stabbed his attacker to death. It’s a dog eat dog world bro.
Following the altercation, Azrihab collapsed unconscious in the store. The owner called paramedics, who were able to transport him safely to Beilinson Hospital after applying initial first aid treatment. He was now said to be in moderate condition as he recovers from his attack.

The police have confirmed that the attack was not part of any altercation and was a completely unprovoked terror attack. I guess Azarihab was just walking around at the wrong place at the wrong time.
Although it’s undeniably badass to pull a knife out of your own neck after someone has tried to stab you to death and then stab them to death, I’m not sure if it was necessary for Azarihab to kill his attacker as it seems like he was incapacitated and weaponless from the report at the time of the killing blow. Having said that, nobody has ever tried to stab me to death because of my religious beliefs so I’m not sure what kind of mental state I would be in immediately following such an incident. I suppose he’s entitled to react that way as the Palestinian probably would have killed him if he had been able to.
It’s slightly less brutal than the Russian way of dealing with terrorists at least.
