While a Palestinian man from Tulkarm went on a stabbing spree on Wednesday in the center of the city that has kept him in office for well over a decade, Tel Aviv Mayor Ron Huldai was in the middle of a workout – and he doesn’t see a problem with it.
Huldai was interviewed by Army Radio not long after the initial reports of the bloodletting near Ma’ariv Junction. When asked whether he felt any sense of urgency in rushing to the scene of the attack, the mayor said he was content to allow the police to do their work without his presence.
"Where are you at the moment?" the Army Radio host asked the mayor.
