You may have read about the random stabbings that are plaguing Israel. Tuesday was particularly bloody with no fewer than 28 people being knifed to death. But the carnage could have been much, much worse had it not been for a brave Tool fan.
Identified only as Yishai, the Tool t-shirt-wearing man was playing his guitar when he heard screaming coming from across the street. When he looked up, he saw a man coming at him with a knife with murder in his eyes.
Rather than turn and run, Yishai ran at the man and brained him with his guitar. The assailant was so stunned and confused that he ran away.
At this point, no one knows what happened to the guy with the knife, although some reports say he was shot and killed by Israeli security forces.
