American Tourist Dies in Tragedy at Masada

Tuesday, May 19th, 2015

An American woman visiting Israel has died while touring Masada National Park. Her name has not yet been released for publication.

The young woman, in her twenties, fell to her death while hiking around the wind-swept mountain fortress, according to Magen David Adom paramedics.

“She was showing no signs of life and there were injuries across her body,” said paramedic Uri Tzachi, who spoke with The Jerusalem Post. Tzachi said he found the woman lying near the base of a cliff when he arrived on the scene.

Paramedics who pronounced her dead at the scene said the woman also showed signs of heat stroke, Tzachi added. MDA said it appeared the woman had fallen from a height of approximately eight meters (about 26 feet).

A heat wave throughout Israel was especially intense throughout the Dead Sea area. A thermometer in the MDA ambulance showed the temperature in the vehicle reading 118 degrees.

At least 25 teenage female tourists from the United States were also evacuated to hospital from the same area due to dehydration. It’s a common occurrence for those who are unused to dealing with the dry, hot desert conditions in southern Israel.

PA Arabs Attack IDF Ambulance Carrying Teens’ Bodies

Tuesday, July 1st, 2014

Palestinian Authority Arabs attacked the IDF humvee ambulance that carried the bodies of the three Israeli teens out of the PA Arab village of Halhul, north of Hevron.

The Arabs hurled rocks and paint at the ambulance, smashing its windshield and blinding the windows – as road terrorists have done in similar attacks on Highway 60 — but failed to cause the driver to lose control of his vehicle and crash with his precious passengers.

The boys’ bodies were found in a cave or pit, situated in an open field near the Judean village, located just north of Hevron.

The teens were kidnapped on June 12 while hitchhiking home from yeshiva for the Sabbath, and almost immediately murdered by the Arab terrorists who abducted them.

Israel Police raised its alert to the second highest level nationwide on Monday evening in the wake of the discovery of the bodies of the murdered teens.

New Jewish Ambulance in Brooklyn ‘For Women Only’

Thursday, June 19th, 2014

Sometimes, a woman just feels more comfortable if she is surrounded by women at certain vulnerable times. Even if her husband is with her.

Now for the first time ever, a new emergency medical service for women only, by women only, has begun ambulance service in the Boro Park neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York.

The neighborhood is home to a high concentration of Chassidic Jewish families, where most women do not feel comfortable being treated by men in the ambulances, even Jewish ones.

And up to now, the Jewish Hatzoloh emergency medical service has refused to allow women to serve on its crews, even under really awkward circumstances when pregnant women are in labor or actually about to give birth. Many women have complained about that situation for years. Qualified Jewish religious female emergency medical technicians (EMTs) have offered to work on Hatzoloh ambulances as well, but all have been turned away.

Finally, someone has done something about it.

“It was a real challenge to establish this organization, said founder Rachel Freier. “But all the volunteers underwent extensive training and we are on our way. The women are being treated by women, so they feel more comfortable.”

So far, the organization is operating with 40 volunteers who are fully trained. Due to lack of financial resources, however, the group does not yet have its own ambulance, so they have reached an agreement with a private ambulance company.

Neturei Karta Anti-Zionists Give Hamas a Shiny New Ambulance

Friday, November 22nd, 2013

The schizo anti-Zionist Neturei Karta sect, with the help of Norwegians, has bought a fully equipped ambulance and has shipped it to Hamas as a “gift for the Gaza children,” it announced on its Facebook page Wednesday.

Their belated Halloween trick is their biggest PR gambit since 2006, when one of the cult’s factions visited Iran and praised Mahmoud Ahmadinejad for calling for the Zionist regime to vanish and then later in the year returned to Tehran for a conference that focused on Holocaust denial.

It is nice to know that there are Jews who are so caring of others, even if they are non-Jews.

The Hamas regime in Gaza now has another vehicle which can transport explosives and terrorists through Rafiah and then east to the border with Eilat. With a moaning terrorist disguised as a pregnant woman, laying on a stretcher, a pillow stuffed under his shirt and the ambulance shrieking its sirens and flashing its lights, Israel certainly would let it across the Taba crossing and into Eilat rather than be accused of denying humanitarian assistance.

And when, God forbid, the suicide ambulance blows up at the hospital, Neturei Karta can start looking for God.

The Hebrew language Kikar HaShabbat website wrote Thursday, “The representatives of the extremist organization [meaning Neturei Karta, not Hamas] were invited to a festive ceremony to receive a certificate of honor where they were photographed with Palestinian leaders as a souvenir.”

The website must have meant that the Neturei Karta crazies “were to be photographed” with Hamas crazies because there are no pictures showing officials of the two extremist groups together, and there is no way the IDF would have let anyone from Neturei Karta or any other Jews, nutty or not, into Gaza.

The ambulance has not even arrived yet, according to the Neturei Karta Facebook page.

It said the vehicle was shipped to Gaza via Alexandria, Egypt and “is now to be transported by road along the Sinai coast to Rafiah, located on the border with Palestine, and further into Gaza.”

Neturei Karta launched the campaign to raise funds for the ambulance last May. “People in Norway, in co-operation with American anti-Zionist Torah Jews, have collected money and bought and outfitted an ambulance which was then sent to the people of Gaza,” it stated. ”On the occasion of departure from Oslo, Al-Quds Day earlier this autumn, there was a large popular demonstration in support of the project.”

Egypt is not letting Neturei Karta officials accompany the ambulance. ”The Egyptian Embassy in Oslo also warned that the Jewish donors would not be issued visas to Egypt,” Neturei Karta said. Egypt also did not issue visas for the “Friends of Jerusalem (Al Quds)” to escort the vehicle.

Neturei Karta added, “The Palestine Red Crescent Society (PRCS) of Egypt gracefully took it upon themselves to arrange for transport to Rafiah, where their Palestinian counterparts will assume responsibility and later represent the donors as well as themselves at a formal reception in Gaza, thanking both the Norwegian donors and the American anti-Zionist Jews.”

Before we get all upset about this latest gambit to mock Israel, let’s look at this as a win for the Zionist entity.

If Iran and Hamas need friends like Neturei Karta, the terrorist organization really are on their last legs.

Extremists usually disappear by melting into the Establishment or isolating themselves into oblivion.

That is what will happen to Hamas and the radical Muslims in Iran and elsewhere, but for better or worse, the Jews, even the extremists in Neturei Karta, know how to survive and will look for another way to do other big mitzvahs.

Once Hamas disappears, they can always ship an ambulance to the Ku Klux Klan.

Day After Day: Palestinians Attack MDA Ambulances

Thursday, April 4th, 2013

In what has become a daily occurrence, Palestinians are routinely throwing rocks at Magen David Adom ambulances,  smashing windshields and seriously endangering the MDA medical crews.

Despite that MDA ambulances and medics treat wounded without bias to race or religion, Palestinians target these life saving efforts, even when the wounded are Palestinians.

 

 

 

 

Over the past few days:

April 2, 2013, 17:15 – Palestinians stone MDA ambulance on the Jerusalem – Hevron highway #60, near the community of Karmei Zur.

April 3, 2013 15:43 – Palestinians stone MDA ambulance on Halhul bypass road, part of the Jerusalem – Hevron highway #60.

April 4, 2013 11:27 – Palestinians stone Neve Zuf community MDA ambulance near the Abud village on road 465.

The dangers of daily Palestinian rock throwing in evident by the ongoing critical condition of 3 year old Adele Biton, wounded by a rock attack which left her critically wounded, and injuring her mother and 2 sisters. (story here)

Just yesterday, The Ofer Base IDF Military Court convicted Waal al-Araja, a member of the Palestinian Authority security forces from Halhoul, of the murder of Asher Palmer and his infant son, Yonatan, in September 2011.  Al-Araja, threw stones from a moving vehicle toward Palmer’s car on the Jerualem – Hevron highway 60, causing the father and son’s death.
