While the UN devotes its human rights operations to the demonization of the democratic state of Israel above all others and condemns the United States more often than the vast majority of non-democracies around the world, the voices of real victims around the world must be heard.

A man was stabbed and moderately wounded in the central city of Jaffa on Sunday afternoon in what police said was potentially a terror attack.

Israel Police said an 18-year-old Palestinian from the Jenin area in the West Bank was arrested as a suspect. Officials said he had illegally entered Israel.

Police said indications were increasing that the incident was a terror attack, although they did not rule out other motives.

Security officials had initially believed it was an attempted robbery.

The 67-year-old victim, who was not immediately named, was stabbed in the back at least five times.

He was taken to the Wolfson Medical Center in Holon by Magen David Adom medics.

A law enforcement official said the assailant also attempted to stab the victim’s wife before fleeing the scene.

The suspect was arrested near the scene of the stabbing, and was taken by officers for questioning. Police said officers were continuing to search the area for possible accomplices.

If confirmed, it would be the second terror attack of the day, after a shooting attack in Jerusalem’s Old City killed a man and injured four.
