Chemical Attack Hero Describes How He Took Down the Terrorist

Saturday, December 20th, 2014

On December 12, a PA Arab began attacking Jews near the Gush Etzion tunnels, throwing chemicals onto a family in a car, into the face of a Jewish hitchhiker, and then trying to stab people with a screwdriver.

The terrorist was neutralized by a bystander, M. who was driving home when the attack happened.

M. (24) described to Israeli site, Walla, how he stopped the terrorist in Gush Etzion.

M. a lifelong resident of the Gush was waiting at the traffic light near El Hadr when he saw the Arab terrorist running towards him holding a screwdriver.

He heard people screaming to stop him, and he quickly realized what was going on.

M. drove his car forward and clipped the terrorist, the terrorist fell, but he quickly got up and continued to run.

M.then got out of his car, pulled his gun and shot the terrorist twice.

Four Border Policeman then ran up, reached the terrorist and arrested him, at which point the terrorist was transported to the hospital.

After the event was over, M. says he was concerned about what just happened, what he did and if he would get in trouble because of it, but the police at the scene calmed him down and told him he did exactly what he should have done.

Terrorists Firebomb Home in Beit El in Samaria

Monday, December 1st, 2014

One or more Palestinian Authority terrorists hurled a firebomb Sunday night at a home in the Jewish community of Beit El, in the Binyamin region of Samaria. No one was injured, and the attackers fled.

If the Arabs had “succeeded” by burning the house to the ground and wounding or killing the residents, the establishment media would have been all over the story.

But, like rock-throwing, it was barely reported.

That is how the center-left media moguls, including the government-funded electronic media, keep most Israelis in the dark. When a major terrorist attack occurs in Judea and Samaria, it is reported as if it out of the ordinary, an assumed sign of escalation, of an intifada, of the need for the government to take stock of why it allows Jews to remain in Judea and Samaria, unwanted by Arab terrorists.

Throwing rocks and firebombs at Israeli citizens and soldiers are daily events. It is not an intifada and it is not a war. It is carried out by a minority of Arabs, almost all of them under 30 and who have been fed 20 years of incitement by official Palestinian Authority media to hate Jews and to become martyrs.

The JNS news agency ran an interesting article this week that the Islamic State slave markets, and the ISIS’ treatment of young girls as objects of merchandise, operate with nary a whisper from the mainstream Muslim community.

Similarly, the majority of Palestinian Authority Arabs may not love Israel but they are not interested in an intifada. They know their own Palestinian Authority is a terrible alternative to the “occupation,” but they are afraid to speak out because of fear of punishment by the criminals, who do not even deserve the title ”terrorists.”

Israel’s establishment media is just as much to blame.

The attacks are on “settlers,” so they don’t merit coverage, unless someone is killed or seriously injured.

But when a couple of right-wing criminals, and that is what they are, set fire to an Arab-Israeli co-existence school, or post pictures of Tzipi Livni and other officials in Nazi uniforms, the broadcasters on Israel Radio rush to the microphone to resurrect the ghost of the blood libel aghast the national religious community for the murder of Prime Minister Yitzchak Rabin.

Jerusalem Arabs Planned to Attack Feiglin and Glick on Temple Mount

Saturday, November 29th, 2014

Partially released for publication (Additional information related to the planned attack is expected to be released in the coming days):

Three eastern Jerusalem Arabs were indicted Friday for plotting to attack Knesset Member Moshe Feiglin and Rabbi Yehuda Glick on the Temple Mount last month, the day before another Jerusalem Arab tried to kill Glick.

The indictment was filed in Jerusalem on Friday against three Arabs, one of them, age 18 and the others 20 and 21 years old. They planned to stay overnight at the holy site and attack with fireworks and rocks when Glick and Feiglin were planning to visit the next morning, October 30. The day before, Glick was nearly fatally shot after he spoke at the Begin Center in Jerusalem.

The terrorists’ plan was that during an ensuing riot, they would flee to the Al Aqsa mosque and then walk away, untouched among a throng of Muslims.

Police had kept the arrests of the three Arabs under cover until Friday, which helps explain why National Police Commissioner Yohanan Danino and Public Security Minister Yitzchak Aharonovitch have been so adamant that Knesset Members not visit the Temple Mount.

The MK’s presence only riles up Arab terrorists and makes trouble for the police. If you can eliminate the cause for attempted murder, then there won’t be murders.

The only problem with this scenario, as most of our readers know, is that telling Arab crazies that Knesset Members cannot visit the Temple Mount has the opposite effect and gives them the incentive to plan attacks on any Jew who dares arrive at the site.

The reason for violence is not Knesset Members who visit the Temple Mount.

The reason for violence is that the security and court system allows them to be violent.

 

Police Chief: Think of 1 Billion Muslims and Don’t Pray on Temple Mount

Tuesday, November 25th, 2014

National police commissioner Yohanan Danino publicly criticized on Tuesday a new decision by the attorney general that gives permission to Knesset Member Moshe Feiglin to continue visiting the Temple Mount.

He also accused “right-wing extremists” of igniting the recent Arab riots and murderous attacks by trying to change the so-called Temple Mount status quo, a long-standing government policy that allows Jews to ascend the Temple Mount but prohibits them from praying there.

The Supreme Court has questioned whether the discrimination against Jews is legal, but no one has brought the issue to the justices for a ruling. It is likely that the police would argue that the prohibition is needed as a security measure.

Danino left no doubt on Tuesday where the police stand – as far away from the Temple Mount as possible.

He stated at the annual Sderot Conference Tuesday that anyone who says that status quo should be changed “influences one billion Muslims in the world.”

His concern for Muslims is remarkable.

Public Security Minister Yitzchak Aharonovitch stated earlier this month that Knesset Members should not go on the Temple, and he also blamed them for violence, It is not the fault of Arab attackers that they pick up meat cleavers, knives and guns to kill Jews while they pray n a synagogue. It is the fault of the Jews for saying that they should be allowed to pray on the Temple Mount.

Perhaps the police commissioner and his boss would like Jews to change their prayers and not stop beseeching God for the Third Temple.

If the Jews simply would behave as the Muslims tell them to behave and stop making a big deal out of  going to the holy site, the Arab world would thank Israel and stop killing Jews.

Arabs would not even dream of violence if Jews would stop dreaming about the Third Temple. All of those eastern Jerusalem murderers and all of the rioters would have stayed home and enjoyed their hookahs.

If Danino things that anyone who wants to change the status quo is a “right-wing extremist,” then he is including Feiglin and Housing Minister Uri Ariel.

In his words today, “Anyone who wants to change the status quo on the Temple Mount should be prohibited from going there.”

The tactic of labeling someone a “right-wing extremist” is very effective. It places them outside the pale and makes them enemies of law and order.

Whenever Israel’s establishment media and political leaders want to oppose something, all they have to do is say that “right-wing extremists” are behind it.

As for Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein’s decision to allow Feiglin to visit the Temple Mount, Danino said it was a “mistake,” and Feiglin called on Danino to retract his statement.

“Perhaps Danino thinks the Temple Mount needs not be in our hands,” Feiglin stated. “He [Danino] is running away from his responsibility. His job is to protect Israeli sovereignty and calm on the Temple Mount.”

It is safe to assume that Danino thinks that if Jews who want to change the status quo would stay off the Temple Mount, there would be calm.

But judging by police tactics that harass Jews who simply want to visit the Temple Mount, without doing anything so radical as to pray there, Danino would be very happy to give the Muslims a long-term lease on the holy site and let Jews simply pray in their synagogues, even if they dare stir up trouble for one million Muslims by praying for the Third Temple .

That way, the police can go back to patrolling the streets, except for those in eastern Jerusalem, where those right-extremists Jews upset Arabs by living there.

Ex-Senior Justice Official Asks Homeland Security to Ban Abbas from US

Sunday, November 23rd, 2014

A former Department of Justice director who was behind the decision to bar Kurt Waldheim from entering the United States in 1987 has asked Homeland to Security to keep Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas out of the country under the Immigration and Nationality Act, which bars entry into the U.S. of aliens who incite terrorist activity or endorse or espouse terrorist activity.

New York Attorney Neal M. Sher, former Director of the Office of Special Investigations in the Justice Department, wrote Homeland Security Deputy Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas last week to bar Abbas on behalf of 140 victims and family members of the terror attack on Fort Hood, Texas five years ago this month.

“My clients know painfully well the deadly consequences of such incitements and endorsements” as those who radicalized the Fort Hood murderer, Nidal Hasan, Sher wrote.

The attorney reminded Homeland Security that as a Justice Dept. official, he “was responsible for the 1987 decision to bar entry to the U.S. of Kurt Waldheim, then the President of Austria,” based on Waldheim’s assistance or participation in Nazi persecutions.

Sher detailed the “abundance of publicly available evidence” showing that “Abbas (1) personally incited terrorist activity and (2) used his position of prominence to endorse terror activity.”

The Zionist Organization of American (ZOA) issued a statement endorsing and supporting Sher’s letter.

Congress has determined that some individuals should not be allowed entry into the United States for reasons that can be found in section 212, codified as Title 8 of the U.S. Code, section 1182, which states:

Terrorism-related inadmissibility grounds (TRIG), exclude persons who have participated in various kinds of activity, including activity that is generally illegal and/or violent. The grounds for inadmissibility include, but are not limited to, individuals who:

•Incited terrorist activity with intent to cause serious bodily harm or death;

•Are representatives or current members of a terrorist organization;

•Endorsed or espoused terrorist activity;

Sher detailed evidence that “ranking officials of the PA and Fatah, over whom Abbas has control and for whom he must be held responsible, have engaged in a widespread, deliberate campaign to incite and endorse terrorism.”

He noted:

Abbas publicly glorified  the perpetrator of the attempted assassination of Yehuda Glick – an American – declaring the perpetrator a ‘martyr’ and in doing so endorsed a clear act of terror….

Abbas publicly urged ‘that Palestinian Arabs’ prevent Jews from entering the Temple Mount ‘by all means necessary,’ an unambiguous call for violence….

A close adviser to Abbas proclaimed on the PA’s official Facebook page that the convicted terrorist who, in October, rammed his car into a light-rail station in Jerusalem, killing a three-month old American infant and wounding several other U.S. citizens and Israelis, “was a ‘martyr’ and worthy of honor….

After additional incidents where vehicles were used as weapons of terror, official PA outlets incited Palestinians to show their anger by ‘running over Israelis.’

Similarly, in a clear-cut example of incitement to and endorsement of terrorism, the PA Facebook page posted ugly depictions of the three Israeli teenagers who were kidnapped and murdered in June of this year. One of the victims was an American. The kidnappers and murdered were praised, honored and glorified, leaving no doubt that their conduct should be emulated.

The Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) issued a statement endorsing and supporting Sher’s letter.

ZOA president Morton A. Klein stated, “It is time for our country to send the clear  message to Mahmoud Abbas that, under U.S. law, he is not eligible to enter the U.S. when he, his partners and subordinates regularly incite a terror campaign against Jews in Israel.

Klein pointed out several examples, several of which have been noted by  U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry in criticism of Abbas:

Abbas’ PA regularly holds parades and ceremonies glorifying deceased terrorists, and names streets, schools and sports teams in their honor.

Large posters of these terrorists are on display in PA schools, universities and public places, honoring these murderers instead of condemning them.

The PA pays pensions to suicide bombers and Jew-killing terrorists. The greater the number of Jews murdered, the higher the pension.

And rather than distance itself as much as possible from Hamas, Abbas’ PA embraced this U.S.-designated terrorist group, whose charter calls for the murder of Jews and the destruction of Israel.

Kerry last week said the barbaric murders of four Jews praying in a Jerusalem synagogue was ‘an act of pure terror,’ and Klein noted he condemned it as ‘a pure result of incitement, of calls for days of rage.

“The ongoing incitement by Abbas and others surely led to the savage, horrific murders,” Klein said. “Mahmoud Abbas is not a leader who is trying to calm tensions and encourage peace with the Jewish State of Israel.  He is leading a campaign of incitement and terrorism against Jews.  The U.S. should make it clear that based on his irresponsible and unacceptable conduct, which is ongoing and well-documented, he is ineligible under U.S. law to enter our country.”

 

Police Capture Massive Shipment of Swords, Knives and Fireworks for Jerusalem Arabs

Thursday, November 20th, 2014

Authorities at the Port of Ashdod and police  last week uncovered two containers with more than 6,000 knives and swords, 18,000 fireworks rockets destined for eastern Jerusalem Arabs to maim and slaughter Jews.

Police have arrested three suspects. A gag order on the smuggling of the weapons was lifted Thursday.

Customs agents detected that the contraband wrapped as Christmas gifts. One container was full of 18,000 20mm diameter firework rockets and hundreds of blasting caps, and the other container included 5200 commando knives, 4300 high voltage shocker flashlights, 5000 electric shockers and 1000 swords.

The weapons and fireworks were lined with Christmas presents, lights and wrappings in the hope of slipping them past Customs.

Realizing the security threat, port officials contacted police.

Police with containers of knives and fireworks headed for eastern Jerusalem Arabs to murder Jews.

Three Arabs from northern Israel arrived at the port 10 days to unload the cargo on two trucks. Police followed them to Afula, opened the containers and arrested the suspects.

The shipments originated in China and were destined for Beit Hanina in eastern Jerusalem.

Police said the smuggling attempt was intended to “significantly upgrade: violence by Arabs, who recently have turned firecrackers, which have become the latest fad for Arab rioters to injure or maim police officers trying to quell riots.

If the containers had slipped through, the organizers of violence in eastern Jerusalem would have had an opportunity to make Tuesday’s slaughter of Jews praying at a Jerusalem synagogue just a drop in a sea of Jewish blood.

The police investigation might help security officials track down a major source of the Arab riots and perhaps put a serious hole in the heart of what appears to be an organized war to take Jerusalem away from Israel.

Swords, knives and fireworks destined for Jerusalem Arabs were found hidden inside Christmas presents in 2 Ashdod shipping containers.

Update: IDF Officer Lost Fingers in Shooting Attack

Wednesday, November 19th, 2014

On November 17th, JewishPress.com reported on an IDF officer who lost part of his finger in a fireworks attack, during an Arab riot in A-Ram, which is just north-east of Jerusalem.

The IDF now reports that following an investigation of the incident, they discovered that the officer was in fact shot at 3 or 4 times with live bullets, and he lost part of his finger as a result of being hit by one of the bullets and not by fireworks as they originally thought.
