The story of the ordeal itself is absolutely horrific:

...The police investigation is still underway into the attack that wounded Givat Zeev resident Kay Wilson, an olah from Great Britain, and killed her friend Kristine Luken, as they were hiking in the wooded hills west of Jerusalem...

...The body of Kristine Luken, an American citizen living in England who was visiting Israel, was found south of Mata, approximately 400 meters from the road between Mata and Beit Shemesh, police said. Her body was discovered around 6:30 AM.

Kay Wilson, a tour guide who worked part time for Shoresh Tours, a Messianic tour company, was seriously wounded and handcuffed, but managed to drag herself to the road. At the road she saw two families, who called the police. After giving a brief recount of the incident, Magen David Adom evacuated her to Hadassah University Medical Center in Jerusalem's Ein Kerem.

On Sunday, police investigators interviewed her in her hospital bed for several hours. Her condition is improving and she is expected to leave the hospital in two to three days, a Hadassah spokesman said.

"[Wilson] had her hands tied up, and she was stabbed pretty bad in the upper part of her body," Rosenfeld said. "The obvious intention was to have her killed. This was not something where they were just trying to take her purse. It was a serious crime scene. We're talking about two women walking around Jerusalem forest, we're not even talking about Judea and Samaria."...

...Wilson described her ordeal, telling Hebrew media from her hospital bed how her attacker removed her Star of David necklace before proceeding to stab her in the chest where her pendulum had been resting.

Wilson and Luken had been hiking in the woods when two Arab men asked Wilson for water in Hebrew, she said.

After they disappeared from view, Wilson became uneasy about their intentions, and told Luken they should return to Mata.

As they walked towards the village, the attackers pounced on the two women, stabbing them both repeatedly. Wilson said her attacker had used a knife with a huge blade, adding that it looked like a bread knife. Wilson managed to produce a small blade on her own that she carried for self defense, she said, and stabbed her attacker once, according to her account.

But after being stabbed again and again, Wilson fell to the floor and played dead, as she waited for the suspects to leave. She provided harrowing descriptions of hearing her friend struggle for breath before dying of her injuries on the ground beside her.

After a few minutes, Wilson found that she was able to stand up, and walked towards Mata. She saw a passing car but was unable to shout out due to breathing difficulties. She then found a family sitting in a park, and turned around to show them that her hands had been bound. The family then alerted police.

"Syme: It's a beautiful thing, the destruction of words. You wouldn't have seen the [Newspeak] Dictionary 10th edition, would you Smith? It's that thick. [illustrates thickness with fingers] The 11th Edition will be that [narrows fingers] thick. Winston Smith: So, The Revolution will be complete when the language is perfect? Syme: The secret is to move from translation, to direct thought, to automatic response. No need for self-discipline. Language coming from here [the larynx], not from here [the brain]" -1984 (film)
