Israeli police say that a security guard has been stabbed near Jerusalem’s central bus station. Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld says the guard was seriously wounded Sunday and his attacker arrested . The Magen David Adom medical service says a 30-year-old male suffered a stabbing wound in his upper body. The incident appeared to be the first attack since President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital . The announcement set off protests and demonstration across the West Bank, eastJerusalem and the Gaza Strip, and demonstrations around the world.
In more than two years of intermittent attacks, Palestinians have killed more than 50 Israelis, two visiting Americans and a British tourist in stabbings, shootings and car-ramming attacks .
Israeli forces have killed more than 260 Palestinians in that time, mostly attackers.

Nadine Dorries defends approach to cyber-security after admitting sharing computer passwords with staff
The backbencher took to Twitter to defend her colleague Damien Green3, who has been accused of having pornography on his Commons computer. She said a retired police officer s claim that Mr Green must have been responsible for material found on his machine, was utterly preposterous .
My staff log onto my computer on my desk with my login everyday . Including interns on exchange programmes, she said. She faced a backlash from Twitter4 users, with users accusing her of being cavalier or careless , and one asking: Does anyone know who s supposed to be in charge of data security for the UK Parliament ? Because they have some explaining to do.
Data protection officer Carl Gottlieb told Sky News: Sharing access to confidential systems should always be minimised, especially in Government where security and audit trails are paramount . MPs and the civil service have a track record of lax practices around sharing passwords and this needs to change.
MPs, like many senior managers, have team around them that act as a bubble of trust . Interns are trusted to handle their email and social media accounts on a daily basis.
The Mid Bedfordshire MP hit back, saying that she does not have access to sensitive government documents because she is not a minister. She said: I m a backbench MP with four staff working on two computers . I don t get top secret emails from government.
A Cabinet Office Inquiry is examining the claims from two retired detectives that a vast quantity of extreme pornography was found on Mr Green s parliamentary computer in 2008.
