Two Arabs Plotted to Blow up Jerusalem Mall Where They Work

Remember this the next time Kerry claims Israel’s oppression of Arabs, by giving them equal opportunity, is the reason for hate and violence. Two Arab workers at a Jerusalem mall tried to blow it up.

Two Arabs from areas of Jerusalem claimed by the Palestinian Authority were preparing to kill Jews during the High Holiday season by blowing up Jerusalem’s luxurious Mamilla Mall where they worked, authorities revealed Sunday after a gag order was lifted.

The two terrorists, in their 20s, were affiliated with a Hamas cell in Ramallah, headquarters of PA chairman Mahmoud Abbas. The head of the terrorist cell was Ramallah resident Hamdi Romana, who maintained an explosives lab  in his home. The cell also planned to manufacture and fire missiles from Ramallah and kidnap Israeli soldiers.

If you listen to the Obama administration, Abbas his fulfilling his commitment to eliminate the terrorist infrastructure in the Palestinian Authority, and if you read this, you know that it is Israel that arrests most heavy duty terrorists.

The two Arabs expressed their anger for the humiliation of having to work for Jews by plotting to plant explosives at the shopping complex, located across the street from the Old City.

The two Arabs are from the neighborhood of Shuafat, located next to the Haredi Ramat Shlomo area, and Ras al-Amud, where the Jews live in the neighborhood of Maaleh Zeitim. Both Jewish areas are considered “settlements” by the Obama administration.

According to the “Peace Process” theory, Israel is blocking economic growth in the Palestinian Authority because of checkpoints and searches.

That theory goes down the drain in the mall bomb plot because there are no checkpoints in Ras al-Amud or Shuafat. Both areas are under the administration of the Municipality of Jerusalem.

All residents are able to take out Israeli citizenship and carry Israeli identity cards.

One of dozens of factors that U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and his Council of Sages do not take into account is that if the Palestinian Authority were to include area of Jerusalem former occupied by Jordan, it is doubtful that the Arabs would want to give up their benefits they enjoy from Israel.

  1. American leaders and often general public see everyone and everywhere as some weird extension of America. It’s not that way and if the US wants to impose peace of their own liking on Israel and Arabs, they need to understand what the real situation is first.

    IN THE HOLY NAME OF JESUS WHY DON'T THESE CRAZY ONES LEAVE ISRAEL ALONE WHEN JEUS RETURNS THEY WILL REGRET TRYING TO KILL THE APPLE OF GOD EYES.

  5. Why employ them at all Mamilla Mall is swarming with Arab workers and some stores are owned by them too. Jews should boycott this Mall !

  7. Sounds racist to me. And if Mamila is swarming with arabs- maybe they should blow it up?!…..

  8. harrylax says:

    The headline for this story demonstrates why The Jewish Press will always remain a provincial, racist publication.  The headline should have been, “Two Terrorists plotted to blow up Jerusalem Mall.”  Imagine if a headline  in an American paper would be “Two Jews arrested for stealing millions.”  or “Two Negroes arrested for holding up liquor store.”?

    American papers DO have headlines including race &/or religion! Mamilla Mall is beautiful and not full of Arabs. Uch.

  12. Yechiel Baum says:

    Netanyahu called Abbas in Ramallah to whish them well for Ramadan and EID. Livini wished them also same. This is Abas way of reciprocating holiday wishes.
    Why employ the Arabs in Israel at all? Are all the Jews in Israel employed that we need to reach to employ our enemies?
    How many JEWS are employed in Rammalah, Hebron, Gaza by the arabs? Even the Nuterei Karta, Satmar and their Nazi allies is not employed by the Arabs and rely on Jewish handouts to these traitors. Have we gone mad?

  13. Shi Yuehan says:

    Empowering ones executioner, never a good game plan.

  14. Israel does not block Arab economy, your government does it for you. Arafat absconded with aide handed to the Arab community, go pester his widow, living outside of Israel! Another example of Hilary accepting $50,000 of jewels, kept it for herself, didn't even donate to charity, or as one US citizen stated use it to relieve the National debt. Terrorists are just incapable of outwitting Israel's security forces, give up and accept a well respected citizenship.

  15. Can't quite understand what you mean? Are you referring to Kerry? Kerry is rather incompetent and the whole business of the Peace talks will probably take a as we say in Ireland 'put on the long finger' too much else to deal with right now. In any event Security forces resolved the episode, and always will.

  18. Indeed Israel has a fifth column in her midst. What Obama considers occupied areas has nothing to do with reality. It’s urgent for Israel to include so much land as possible – stretching past the Green Line of 1967 – that the unpleasant neighbors can be held on an arm’s lengths.

  19.

    Arabs, as well as the world would suffer greatly, if Israel ever stopped protecting its land and borders..thankfully, Israel is "on its game" and protects all those who live in, work in, and visit Israel. Killing just leads to more killing…and then no one is safe. Two shootings this morning in my town in Bergenfield when people were preparing to go to church at 930 AM…and here I thought that our town was quiet…not sure that much is quiet anywhere anymore…and I am sure that those two Arabs would not like living without all of those benefits or peace that Israel offers. It makes me wonder when Obama hesitates about stepping into Syria to make things right after 100,000 have been murdered, injured or displaced but is so quick to condemn Israel for building in "settlements"..which the Mamilla mall is not even part of…as if Israel is the terrorist here…and making things wrong…oy…this world has been turning upside down for too long here..it's time for others to step in to help Israel set things right side up…Israel has been going this alone for way too long..

  20. Not racist at all. Israelis don't have stores in Arab areas if they did they would be lynched.

  21. This is sooooo Terrible…
    It is not supposed to be Done in Israel becoz is a house of the living Lord…. I Pray God’s Power to take over protection to his chosen childrens in Israel <3 <3 <3

    What the world needs to remember is that SoS John Kerry is a traitor to the United States and was given a Presidential Pardon by Pres. Jimmy Carter so he could be in politics in the first place. John Kerry got a Other Than Honorable Discharge from the Navy after his involvement in the protest of the VietNam war while still in the US Navy plus he was a coward while in VietNam and awarded himself several Medals that he did not earn.
