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.

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.

 

 

Kerry Calls Synagogue Massacre ‘Pure Terror’

Tuesday, November 18th, 2014

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry condemned the Arab murders of four Jews praying in a Jerusalem synagogue Tuesday morning and labeled it an “act of pure terror and senseless brutality.”

Speaking in London, Kerry told reporters, “This morning in Jerusalem Palestinians attacked Jews who were praying in a synagogue.

“People who have come to worship God in a sanctuary of a synagogue were… murdered in a holy place in an act of pure terror and senseless brutality and murder.”

Interestingly, The New York Times referred to the terrorists as “assailants” and in the same article called the shooting of Temple Activist Rabbi Yehuda Glick last month an “episode.”

Abbas Follows Kerry’s Orders and Condemns Violence

Tuesday, November 18th, 2014

Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas condemned Tuesday’s massacre in a Jerusalem synagogue – and also called for an end of Israeli “incitement” after U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry told him to do so.

Kerry called Abbas after the attack, Israel Radio reported. He also expressed his sympathy to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, who told Kerry that Abbas is directly inciting terror.

Abbas issued a statement that “we condemn the murders” Tuesday morning but he also added that “we condemn violence no matter where it comes from.” He also said Israel must stop” incitement’ by allowing Knesset Members to ascend the Temple Mount.

One hour before Abbas’ statement, the official Facebook page of Fatah, the party Abbas leads, praised the murders of Jews while they were praying.

Hamas, which is part of the unity government with Abbas, said the attack was a “natural response to ongoing Israeli crimes against the Al-Aqsa Mosque,” and he urged Arabs to carry out more attacks.

The Islamic Jihad stated, “The operation in Jerusalem was a natural reaction to the crimes committed by the Israeli occupation and its settlers,” according to the Bethlehem-based Ma’an News Agency.

The Popular Resistance Committees described the attack as “heroic” and a response to “the Israeli occupation’s crimes against our people and our holy places in occupied Jerusalem.”

Update 1:15 PM: Four Murdered in Attack on Jerusalem Synagogue Worshipers [video]

Tuesday, November 18th, 2014

Two Arab terrorists killed four worshippers at a synagogue in the Haredi neighborhood of Har Nof in Jerusalem Tuesday morning.

Police officers shot and killed the murderers on the steps of the Kehilat Bnei Torah yeshiva-synagogue complex.

One of the policemen is in life-threatening condition from wounds in the shoot-out with the terrorists. The quick response of the police, two of whom were traffic officers who happened to be in the area, is credited with having prevented a worse massacre.

Seven people are being treated for injuries. Besides the police officer in very critical condition, one other is in very serious or condition, the wounds of two others were described as “serious, while two others are in moderate condition and one was injured lightly.

The terrorists were cousins and from the eastern Jerusalem neighborhood of Jabel Mukaber, next to the predominantly Jewish area of Armon HaNatziv in Talpiot.

One eyewitness told police that a third terrorist escaped, but police later ruled out the possibility.

One of the terrorists was armed with a gun and the other with an axe and butcher knife, which was the size of that used in a slaughterhouse.

Chief Ashkenazi Rabbi Davis Lau called the attack a “pogrom.”

“Two terrorists entered the synagogue and slaughtered worshippers wrapped in prayer shawls and tefillin. Several of the victims were mortally wounded,” rescue volunteer Aryeh Shavit told the 2525 website.
