We have seen vehicular jihad in Manhattan before, although authorities of course steadfastly ignore it.
AMNY.com, January 18, 2024:
The wrong-way driver who struck and seriously wounded a Manhattan cop on Wednesday afternoon is a known pro-Palestinian protester who allegedly targeted the officer, police reported.
Law enforcement sources said the street collision occurred at the corner of East 77th Street and Park Avenue on the Upper East Side at about 4:20 p.m. on Jan. 17.
The officer and a partner were guarding an abandoned vehicle at the location when the suspect, a female driver, came speeding northbound on Park Avenue’s southbound lanes.
Police say that the vehicle came to a stop as one of the cops approached to investigate before the female driver allegedly slammed on the accelerator and swerved into the male officer.
Sources familiar with the investigation said the driver allegedly yelled verbal insults at the officer when he approached the vehicle seconds before ramming the car into him.
The car then halted and other cops swiftly yanked the driver from the vehicle, placing her in cuffs.
The injured officer was rushed to Cornell Medical Center for treatment of a broken arm and leg.
Sources familiar with the case said the unidentified suspect is a known pro-Palestinian protester. It is not currently clear why the driver decided to target the cop or if her affiliation with the protest group played a role in the attack….

I’m not going to let the Democrats call me a racist and bigot because I defend Israel’s right to exist – and Jewish students’ right to be safe on college campuses. I’ll say it again: campus groups that spout pro-Hamas rhetoric are despicable pic.twitter.com/t6XkEKFBnE
