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 bus driver was lightly injured Friday when rocks and glass bottles full of paint were thrown at his vehicle as it traveled from Jerusalem to the nearby Ma'ale Adumim settlement in the West Bank, police said.

Glass shards from a broken window hit the driver, cutting him, as he was driving down the Route 1 highway. No other injuries were reported.

Police officers began searching the area to find the perpetrators of the attack, according to a police spokesperson.

Earlier in the day on Friday, Israeli soldiers shot and killed a Palestinian man and seriously injured a woman as they carried out a suspected car-ramming attack outside the Kirya Arba settlement near Hebron, the army said.

Less than an hour beforehand, a Jordanian national was shot and killed by Border Police officers at the Damascus Gate in Jerusalem's Old City as allegedly charged at them with a knife, police said.

In the past year, Israel saw a wave of so-called "lone wolf" Palestinian terror attacks, which claimed the lives of 35 Israelis and four foreign nationals since October 2015. Over 200 Palestinians have also been killed in the past year, with the Israeli army and police saying that most of those killed were attackers or involved in clashes with security forces.
