SGT K sends us a link to The Blaze which tells the story of a woman in Israel, Yael Matzpun, who woke to find Palestinian terrorists in her bedroom.
The terrorist turned on the light and said something in Arabic, she recalled. He had a knife in one hand and a metal pipe in the other. Suddenly he lunged at Yael, stabbing her in the face and shoulder.
What the terrorist did not know is that Yael is an athlete trained in Krav Maga, Israeli military hand-to-hand combat. She used her skills to drive him back and into the bathroom, and locked him in. At the same time, she pushed her young children to safety.
She called the Israeli Defense Forces who arrived to find the youngster crawling out the bathroom window. They gave chase and when he wouldn’t drop his gun they dropped him. The only realistic solution for a man who would attack a lone woman and her four children, anyway.
