(Jerusalem — Wednesday, February 11, 2016) Nachum Segal, the US radio personality who hosts the JM in the AM radio program heard weekday mornings by listeners in the New York metropolitan area and around the world, visited Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem as part of his Jewish Unity Initiative. Segal is encouraging his significant Jewish audience to step up visits to Israel and support its economy through tourism, and ultimately, to make their home in Israel. He also spoke with Tomer Ditor, 28, who was recovering at Shaare Zedek from injuries he incurred Tuesday when he was stabbed by a terrorist while jogging near Neveh Daniel.
Tomer’s description of the attack aired several hours later on the Wednesday, February 10, 2016 edition of JM in the AM, as Segal and a team from his eponymous Nachum Segal Network broadcast to a waking east coast from a restaurant on Tel Aviv’s Rechov Dizengoff. Tomer, of Rosh Tzurim, told Segal he knows several previous victims of the ongoing wave of attacks and that it is “weird” to have become a target himself.
“I went for a run in the Gush, near Neveh Daniel, and I saw the attacker. He came towards me and I turned around to return to Rosh Tzurim, and then he started running after me, so I turned around with my fist toward him, and then I saw the knife,” he recalled. “He started to attack me so I defended myself. I kicked him as much as I could, and he hit me in the head and twice in the shoulder. After this he just turned around and ran away. I screamed for the guard who was 100 meters from me. He heard me and called the ambulance.” Tomer said he was stabbed 5 or 6 times in more >
