It's a shame when Jews can't enter their own Jenin, thought to be the site of the Israelite village of En-gannim (עין גנים), mentioned in the Jewish Bible.
But like everything else Islam has hijacked, Islam has also hijacked Jenin.
The officer, a major serving in the army's Central Command, was on his way to the Mevo Dotan settlement in the northern West Bank but accidentally drove into Jenin, located seven miles northeast of the settlement.
Local Palestinian residents who noticed the officer driving into the city hurled rocks at his car, forced him out and began beating him.
A Palestinian policeman spotted the angry mob and called for backup. The security officers struggled to reach the battered officer and several shots were apparently fired before they managed to extract him from the crowd moments before his vehicle was set aflame.
