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 man tried to strangle an off-duty IDF soldier at the Allenby Bridge border crossing on Wednesday, the army said.

The soldier, who is a guard at the bridge, the main crossing point between the West Bank and Jordan for Palestinians, was in civilian clothes when the man tried to strangle him with a cellphone charger cable.

He managed to fight off the attacker, who was then arrested by other forces who ran to help.

The army said there were no injuries and the Palestinian man was taken for questioning. There have been several attempted attacks at the crossing in the past.
