Media Exaggerates Arab Riots in Jerusalem

Sunday, July 13th, 2014

Police closed the Temple Mount for a short time Sunday morning after dozens of Arabs hurled stones at Israeli police, injuring two of them, but the rest of the city is relatively calm.

Media reported that Arabs hurled firebombs and rocks at police in predominantly Arba neighborhoods Saturday night, but there has been no repeat of the larger scale chaos that followed the kidnap-murder of a Jerusalem Arab by six Israeli hoodlums two weeks ago.

The violence and vandalism closed down the Jerusalem Light Rail system used by Jews and Arabs in northern Jerusalem, but service now has been restored, much earlier than previous estimates. Damages amounted to several million dollars.

However, the rioting Arabs managed to inflict “collective punishment” on Arab neighborhoods, where the light rail does not stop. That mean that the large majority of Jerusalem Arabs, like most in Judea and Samaria, who simply want to work and raise a family in peace, without the shenanigans of a corrupt Palestinian Authority regime, have another reason to blame fellow Arabs and not Israel for their woes.

There are approximately 250,000 Arabs in Jerusalem and about 249,000 don’t riot. This a big problem for the media establishment, which wants to promote the myth that Israel is “occupying” Jerusalem and that the Arab citizens of Israel really would prefer to give up all of their benefits from the Israeli government and medical service for the right to be subjected to the corrupt regime ruin by Mahmoud Abbas.

Twenty years of Palestinian Authority incitement against Israel and American and European Union promotion of the idea of “occupation” have educated a large part of the younger generation to hate Israel, but not enough are buying the lie to support a rebellion.

There is not much Arab love for Israel, but when they see that the propaganda has made lives even more miserable for their friends in Judea, Gaza and Samaria, there is even less fondness for the alternative.

Jerusalem Light Rail Service Restored

MK Ariel: Unity Zionist Government Now

Monday, July 7th, 2014

Minister Uri Ariel (Jewish Home) called on Israeli politicians to set their political considerations aside and to create a national Zionist government to ensure the security and spirits of the nation. Ariel called on government ministers to focus on what Israel needs at the current time – an end to infighting and argument – and not on individual or party politics.

 

Violence Resumes after Jewish Suspects Named

Sunday, July 6th, 2014

Israeli police are gearing up for another night of violence, following the arrest of six Jews in connection with the murder of 16-year-old Mohammed Abu Khdeir last week.

Riots have flared on-and-off all day in Jerusalem and the Galilee. Routes 70 and 65 have been partially closed, and about 200 Arab citizens of Israel attacked police with rocks and Molotov cocktails.  Eleven people were arrested, according to the Ynet website.

As of this writing, police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said affected areas were “relatively quiet,” but he added that riot forces were preparing for a long night of violence in the capital and in the north.

Six suspects have been arrested in the murder of 16 year old Mohammad Abu Khdeir.  Several of the suspects were minors.

Shocked many Israelis

The violence of the crime has shocked many in the country, who still find it hard to believe that Jews could be capable of such terror.

The young Arab teen, a resident of the northern Jerusalem suburb of Shuafat, was found dead in the Jerusalem forest last week. Burns covered 90 percent of his body and there were other signs of violence as well. The coroner allegedly reported that he had been burned alive, according to a source.

Arabs instantly used the murder as the excuse to launch a third intifada despite its immediate condemnation by the Israeli leadership before evidence existed the crime was committed by Jews.

Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas has continued to call for an investigation by the United Nations into the murder, despite the fact that suspects have already been taken into custody by Israel Police.

Arabs are now extending their riots into Jewish neighborhoods in Jerusalem.

Firebombs and stonings have been reported in Gilo, Har Homa and Maaleh Zeitim (on the Mount of Olives).

Arabs tried to kidnap a 13 year old Jewish child in Har Homa on Shabbat. The child got away. Police set up roadblocks hoping to catch the 2 Arabs.

Cholent Saves Diaspora Yeshiva from Arab Attack

Saturday, July 5th, 2014

On Friday night, 15 Arabs rioters from the Silwan/Shiloach (City of David) broke in and attacked Jerusalem’s Diaspora Yeshiva on Mount Zion.

The Arabs attacked the Yeshiva students inside with stones and blocks, according to a report on B’Chadarei Chareidim.

Fearing the Arabs were armed with guns, the students initially ran away for safety, but they then returned to defend the yeshiva and themselves from the Arab terrorists.

The students began to fight back, throwing chairs at the rioting Arabs, boiling water, and eventually even throwing the Cholent at the rioting Arab infiltrators.

Cholent is a traditional Jewish stew that sits on the fire throughout Shabbat, and is usually eaten for lunch.

After the Cholent was thrown, the Arabs ran away.

Police arrived a half hour after the attack was over.

It’s not known what the students ate for lunch on Shabbat.
