State Department spokesman John Kirby refused on Wednesday to let Arab reporter Said Arikat maneuver him into condemning slain Border Policewoman Hadar Cohen as being part of an “occupying force.” Cohen was killed Wednesday when three armed Arab terrorists mounted an attack on her and three other Border Police near the Damascus Gate of Jerusalem’s Old City. When asked about the incident by AP’s Matt Lee, Kirby said: “We do strongly condemn the attack in Jerusalem today in which two female border police officers were attacked with automatic weapons. “As before, sadly, once again, we have to extend our deepest condolences to a mourning family and to friends and the community of the victim, and we wish the injured officer a full and complete recovery. As we’ve said before, there’s no justification for these attacks,” the spokesperson said. At this point, Arikat moved in, asking: “These Border Police units, they are part of an occupying force. Correct? You agree with that?” READ MORE
