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 Palestinian terrorist stabbed and lightly wounded an Israeli man on Ha'nevi'im Street in Jerusalem on Monday.

The terrorist, a resident of the West Bank, was apprehended by police.

The victim, described as a haredi youth, was treated by paramedics on the scene, before being transported to Shaare Zedek Medical Center in the capital for further treatment.

National Police Spokesman Micky Rosenfeld stated that police who were stationed in the area heard yelling on Ha'Nevi'im Street in the direction of Damascus Gate.

Upon approaching they saw the suspect stabbing a Jewish man before fleeing the scene. The suspect tossed away his knife while running from police.

Police apprehended the man after a short chase and took him into custody.

Dovid Shekler, a United Hatzalah volunteer medic described the scene, "I saw a young man who was stabbed in his upper body and I began treating him. After arriving at the scene I continued to treat him until an emergency services ambulance arrived at the scene and evacuated him to Shaare Zedek hospital. He was full conscious at t he time of transport."

Monday's incident came after two elderly women were stabbed in the capital's Armon Hanatziv neighborhood last week.
