Terrorist Bought Soda before Attack

CBNNews.com - JERUSALEM, Israel - Israeli Arab Husam Dwayyat, 30, who ran down three Israeli civilians with a bulldozer in Jerusalem's city center last week, bought a soda from a shop on Jaffa Road an hour before the attack.

"He would come to my shop regularly," store owner David Hudeda told The Jerusalem Post. "From his appearance and demeanor, there was no way to tell what he was planning," he said.

"We have been immunized to terrorist attacks," Hudeda said. "We learned how to clear the wreckage and return to normality," he said, as if it were "a car accident."

Other than a small memorial, consisting of a few stones and three candles, no other evidence tells of the mayhem that occurred there one week ago.

"Every tractor noise and my mind becomes worked; towing or hauling noise and my heart drops," said Meir Nehamia, an employee of a store adjacent to where the attack took place.

"It is natural that many people will come and ask us, 'what happened' or 'how are you doing now,'" Nehamia said.

"Some ask out of curiosity and others out of concern for our well-being," he said.
