People Around the World Help Replace Guitar Destroyed Fighting Terrorist

We told you about the "guitar hero" who fought off the terrorist stabber in Jaffa on Tuesday. Now, Arutz Sheva's Matt Wanderman reports how the Israeli man's broken instrument is now being replaced:

Montgomery spoke with Channel 2 news about the attack. "I had just sat down to play my guitar near the ocean when I heard screams from down the road," he explained, nonchalantly. "He jumped on the bench yelling at me and trying to stab me so I grabbed my guitar and hit him over the head with it.

"He was so stunned and didn't know what to do with himself and then started running away."

Two police volunteers then shot and killed the terrorist.

Ed Dvir, from Philadelphia, read about Montgomery's quick reaction to an approaching terrorist and set up a GoFundMe account, explaining: "I Ed Dvir of Philadelphia will speak to Yishay to find out which guitars he wants and will purchase them on his behalf in America and will deliver them to him when I go to Israel."

In less than 24 hours, 213 people from around the world have contributed to the campaign. Some added short notes including "GUITAR HEROOOO!!!!!" and "Thank you for being awesome!"
