Israeli Border Policewoman

Remembered as Loving, Brave Warrior


An Israeli border policewoman stabbed to death by Palestinian terrorists Friday was warmly remembered at her funeral Saturday night, reports the Jerusalem Post.

“Hadas was a real-life Wonder Woman,” her friend Amit Azulai told Channel 2. “Good-hearted and optimistic.”

The Post reports that Hadas Malka had tweeted to friends a "Shabbat Shalom" greeting just minutes before the attack. An uncle reported that Malka knew of the risks serving in Jerusalem, but wanted to contribute to the security of the country.

Malka was murdered on Friday by a Palestinian terrorist in Jerusalem's Old City.

Malka, 23, was killed during two simultaneous coordinated attacks. She was stabbed repeatedly and died of her wounds shortly after.

Two other terrorists attacked Border Police officers nearby and were shot dead. Malka's attacker was also killed by police.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu issued a statement on the incident saying, "The Prime Minister demands that the Palestinian Authority condemn the attack and expects the international community to do so too."

Instead, as is typical, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas spewed bile at Israel for killing the terrorists, saying he "condemns the war crime carried out by Israeli occupation forces in Jerusalem against three Palestinian teens."
