Netanyahu: PA Incitement Caused Pre-Passover Terror Attack

The incitement of the Palestinian Authority continues... it has yet to see fit to condemn this reprehensible act.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu blamed Palestinian Authority incitement for the terrorist attack that left a 46-year-old police officer dead, and his 28-year-old pregnant wife and nine year old son wounded.

A terrorist opened fire at Israeli civilian vehicles traveling along Highway 35, near the western edge of Hevron. Israeli soldiers closed off the area in search of the perpetrators but have yet to make arrests.

Netanyahu issued the statement to media following the murder of Israel Police Chief Superintendent Baruch Mizrahi, of blessed memory. He and his family were traveling on the road to a seder to celebrate Passover in Kiryat Arba at the time of the attack.

Mizrahi is to be laid to rest at 1:00 p.m. local time Wednesday at the military cemetery in Jerusalem, Mount Herzl, in the section reserved for the Israel Police.

Mizrahi served as director of Technology in the SigInt Unit for the Intelligence division of Israel Police since June 2011. He served in various roles in the IDF for 25 years, ending his military career as a Lieutenant Colonel in the 8200 Intelligence Unit.

“Baruch z’l devoted his entire life to two great loves – his family and the State of Israel,” said his commander. His entire unit and Israel Police released a statement expressing their joining the grief of the family and their wishes for a speedy recovery for his wife.

The terrorist responsible for the murder was standing by the side of a road, waiting for targets, armed with an AK-47 assault rifle, also known as a Kalashnikov. He also shot at other cars passing on the road, according to the Tazpit News Agency, which received reports of attacks from other drivers.

The AK-47 is the same weapon supplied to the Palestinian Authority police force by the U.S. government, via Jordan, during military training at an American-funded base in Jericho during the Bush administration under the supervision of U.S. Lt.-Gen. Keith Dayton.

“This reprehensible murder of a man who was traveling with his family to a meal for the Festival of Freedom is the result of the incitement for which the Palestinian Authority is responsible. The Palestinian Authority continues to constantly broadcast – in its official media – programs that incite against the existence of the State of Israel,” he said.

“Last night this incitement was translated into the murder of a father who was traveling with his family to celebrate the first night of Passover. The incitement of the Palestinian Authority continues in that it has yet to see fit to condemn this abominable and reprehensible act,” Netanyahu pointed out.

Government Minister Uri Ariel (Bayit Yehudi) released  a statement warning that every PA prisoner release emboldens the terrorists, and demanded the government cancel all future releases. Ariel said the government should require the PA to cancel any unilateral steps at the United Nations as a precondition to continuing any final status talks.

The United States has supplied more than $161 million dollars to the Palestinian Authority for paramilitary training for its security forces. This includes provision of assault rifles, ammunition and other military supplies. There have been a number of terrorist attacks on Israeli citizens committed by so-called “PA police officers” using this equipment.

Although the United States has had the fantasy that the PA security forces would enforce agreements made by its government to abandon violence and restrain terrorist groups in order to “enable” a “two state solution” — that has not worked out. Instead the PA paramilitary force has simply continued along its traditional path of enforcing the corruption of its leaders. Moreover, some of its members have joined – or returned to — terrorist ranks, bringing along with them new knowledge, training and equipment gifted to them from the American government.

These new police terrorists are more dangerous than the garden-variety operatives because they often appear to be security personnel, while being the very opposite.

  3. Bibi it’s time shoot to kill

  4. ISRAEL SHOULD WIPE OFF THIS EARTH MUSLIMS=MURDERS!!

  5. I mean that in a good way, BIBI….LOVE YOU

  6. BiBi please get rid of all the so called Palestinians in Israel so you can have peace

  7. These people I don’t know what they want!

  8. Palestinian must prepare they will used bombs to attack

  9. It is sad that hate runs so deep. Perhaps they should study modern history of the British who created many of the problems in the 30′s and 40′s.

  10. This terrorist attack shows that the Arabs of Hevron are making war against Israel, because they are killing the Jews. It is written in the Torah, in Devarim (Deuteronomy) 20:10-18, that God commanded that, in the war, Israel to kill all the enemies. Therefore, the State of Israel must kill all the Arabs of Hevron.

  11. PORTEU LA SENYERA CATALANA ESTELADA AL COSTAT DE LA BANDERA D'ISRAEL, SI US PLAU!

  12. Gene Strong says:

    Deport all.palestinians from Israel including all Muslims from jerusalem

  13. They did a good job of protecting us!!!!

  14. not only did the PA incite this, they praised the attack

  15. Discúlpeme, ¿Estás diciendo la bandera catalán de pie con la israelí?

  16. So sorry for your loss- so sad this happened. Amazing to me still- are the words the angel spoke to Hagar in the wilderness -after being told to leave with Ishmael – (his hand will be against every man and every mans hand will be against him)

  17. Where are the big charlatanes Netanyahu and Yaalon, send all terrorists prisoners in pig manure.

  18. Rivka Miller says:

    Bibi – I blame you just as much. You know what the arabs are capable of doing yet you still release terrorists. You also have blood on your hands. These murderers get out of prison and return to what they know best – kill innocent Jews. You are just a weak puppet and can't stand up to Kerry and Obama.

  19. Uzi Kattan says:

    Netanyahu talks a lot but he gave away 90% of Hevron to the PA and recently he released murderous terrorists as a 'good will gesture'. He is to blame as much as the Arab terrorists. He also armed the PA terrorist army instead of destroying their ability to attack Jews. Netanyahu is to blame for the attacks and for terrorizing Jews as he did in Yitzhar where Jewish youth finally had enough of his persecutions and destroying Jewish homes and struck back. Pipi only has a backbone when he attacks Jews but he is too spineless to do anything against the Arabs.
