Israel Thursday pledged a tough response to any further attacks in Jerusalem and police flooded flashpoint Arab neighborhoods a day after a Palestinian car attack killed a baby.Wednesday's attack saw a Palestinian ramming his car at high speed into a crowd of Israeli pedestrians, killing a baby and injuring another six people in what police dubbed "a hit-and-run terror attack".The incident triggered clashes between police and stone-throwing Palestinians across East Jerusalem that lasted into the early hours.Palestinian community officials say the wave of unrest gripping the city is fuelled by a sense of hopelessness resulting from Israel's policies in east Jerusalem, which have left many young people with a sense that they have nothing to lose.Police shot the driver dead.Much Palestinian anger over Jewish settlements in East Jerusalem has focused on the neighborhood of Silwan, which hit the headlines in the past month after settlers acquired another 35 apartments there, triggering outrage from the Palestinians and condemnation from Washington.
