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.

One person was moderately wounded in a stabbing attack on Monday evening at the Gush Etzion Junction in the West Bank.

The female terrorist was neutralized by Israeli forces, and the victim, a man in his 60s, was taken to Hadassah Ein Karem Hospital in Jerusalem.

His condition was considered stable, according to doctors. The West Bank settlement of Karmei Shomron said he was one of its residents, a father who was waiting for the bus home when he was stabbed.

"We thank the soldiers for neutralizing the terrorist. There is no doubt that this attack is the result of continuous and savage incitement for which the leaders of the [Palestinian Authority] and the terrorist organizations are responsible, and we demand that the government fight without compromise,” settler leaders said in a statement released shortly after the attack.

The attack followed recent terror attacks in the West Bank and Israeli cities, tensions that have further heightened during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.

Attacks have not been limited in the West Bank, as the Israel Defense Forces said hours later that a shooting attack targeted a community in northern Israel.
