UPDATE 6:15 PM: 11 Injured in Arab Citizen/Terrorist Ramming Attack [video]

Monday, December 14th, 2015

An Arab terrorist with Israeli citizenship was shot and killed near the Jerusalem Chords Bridge at the entrance to the capital after he rammed his vehicle into people at a bus stop around 3 p.m. (8 a.m. EDT).

Eleven civilians were wounded, including a seriously injured 18-month-old baby girl and a 65-year-old woman who suffered moderate injuries. Nine others were lightly injured.

Doctors entered the operating room at Hadassah Ein Kerem Medical Center and were fighting to save the leg of the baby girl, which was badly wounded in the attack.

An eyewitness said the terrorist, identified as Abed el-Muhsan Hassuna, 21, accelerated his white Mazda sedan and drove it into the bus stop on Herzl Boulevard near the Chords Bridge at the entrance to the city. Hassuna lived in the Beit Hanina neighborhood in northern Jerusalem.

She added that a security guard reacted immediately and eliminated the terrorist within seconds, before he was able to get out of his car. Police found a new axe and a screwdriver in the terrorist’s car, and the quick response by the security guard prevented more casualties.

The ax found in the terrorist's car - Dec. 14, 2105

Following the attack, Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat urged city residents to stand firm: “Go on with your daily routine, be vigilant, but do not let the terrorists win.”

Protective posts will soon be added to bus stops in high risk areas, Barkat said, to prevent future ramming attacks.

Beit Arye-Ofarim Vehicle Ramming Terrorist Captured

Friday, December 11th, 2015

Security personnel have captured the Hamas terrorist who rammed his vehicle into a group of soldiers from the IDF’s Kedem Battalion Thursday at the entrance to the Jewish community of Beit Arye in Samaria.

Three soldiers were lightly wounded in the attack; a fourth was seriously injured. The battalion had been conducting routine security operations near Beit Arye-Ofarim at the time.

Muhammad Abdel Halim Alhamid Salem, 37, escaped after the attack, abandoning his vehicle in the Arab village of Rantis, where it was later found, and returning to Al-Lubban al-Gharbi, the village where he lives, in Samaria.

A search of the vehicle by IDF soldiers revealed a stun grenade and an M-16 military rifle, making it likely that a more serious terror attack was averted by the IDF presence. The rifle was later discovered to belong to one of the soldiers; the force of the impact when Salem rammed his vehicle into the troops sent the weapon flying into the car.

In a joint operation carried out by the Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) and the elite IDF Duvdevan unit, the terrorist was arrested late Thursday night.

Salem is no novice terror; he was placed in administrative detention in 2001 for six months on the strength of past terror activity.

Under initial questioning early Friday, he confessed to having carried out Thursday’s attack in responseto to Arab media incitement. He referred to “the situation in Jerusalem” and the Temple Mount, and the “murder of Palestinian children” in his response.

3 Terrorists’ Homes Demolished in Hebron

Thursday, December 10th, 2015

IDF soldiers gathered in Hebron overnight Wednesday into Thursday to demolish the homes of three Arab terrorists.

Each of the attackers was responsible for carrying out a stabbing terror attack against Israelis last week.

Palestinian Authority activists have been collecting funds to rebuilding the homes of terrorists when they are demolished by the Israeli government.

As of three days ago, one Hebron Arab contributed NIS 114,421 to the fund, according to a tweet by Daoud Kuttab on the Twitter social networking site.

Firebomb Photos Latest ‘Rage’ Among Arab Terrorists

Thursday, December 10th, 2015

The latest “rage” among budding Arab terrorists involves shooting — from a camera, that is.

The firebomb (Molotov cocktail) is photographed just prior to being hurled at Israelis traveling on the roads.

The photo is then uploaded to Arab social media sites on the Internet.

Late Tuesday night Israelis came under firebomb attack on Loop 45, near Atarot, but no injuries were reported. Sure enough, shortly after the attack, alleged photos of the bottles used in the attack appeared in Arabic-language social media, which claimed the bottles were just “thrown away” after being photographed.

Earlier in the evening, photos appeared on the Internet of firebombs that were hurled at Israelis who were attacked on Highway 443.

Police Foil Stabbing Attempt by 18-Year-old Hebron Terrorist

Saturday, December 5th, 2015

Another stabbing attack was prevented by Israeli security forces Saturday afternoon when an 18-year-old Hebron woman was caught with a knife in her hands at a checkpoint.

Border Police were conducting searches when they saw her with a knife, and she was arrested without any shots being fired.

The number of young female terrorists has risen sharply since the latest wave of escalating violence and reflects a generation or orchestrated incitement by the Palestinian Authority school system and media.

Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon has stated that the phenomenon of the “lone terrorist” is not going to disappear quickly.

Israeli’s best defense against attacks that are not carried out by organized terror cells is total alertness by civilians, police and soldiers.

Two Teenage Terrorists Killed in Stabbing Attack on Soldier in Hebron

Friday, December 4th, 2015

The IDF shot and killed two Palestinian Authority teenage terrorists after midnight Thursday when they tried to murder a soldier at the Jewish Hebron neighborhood of Tel Rumeida.

The soldier suffered moderately wounds in what was the third stabbing attack in 24 hours.

The teenagers were cousins. The father one of the terrorists said he was surprised that his son carried out the attack but added he is proud of him.

In the early evening, a 21-year-old Palestinian Authority terrorist from Tulkarm moderately wounded a police officer near Damascus Gate at the Old City of Jerusalem. Police shot and killed the terrorist.

The first attack of the day was carried out by a Palestinian Authority intelligence officer who lived in the Abu Dis area of eastern Jerusalem. He used his rifle to shoot at soldiers at the Hizme checkpoint, lightly wounding a soldier.

Like the other terrorists during the day, he was shot and killed.

White House Invites Arab MK Who Blames ‘Occupation’ for Terror

Tuesday, December 1st, 2015

President Barack Obama is introducing anti-Zionist values into the White House. After J Street and “Breaking the Silence,” next in line is Knesset Arab Knesset Member Ayman Odeh, who blames Israel for Arab terror.

One week after Knesset Member Michael Oren was falsely quoted as saying that the president is bringing “radical Muslim values” into 1600 Pennsylvania, it turns out that he definitely is opening its doors to the Arab MK who thinks that Muslim terror against Jews is the fault of the “occupation.”

Even more absurd is that Odeh is a Christian, but that has not stopped him from embracing his fellow Muslim MKs who call the Israeli government “Nazi” and openly campaign for the end of Israel as a Jewish state.

MK Odeh said on Israel radio two months ago:

I always blame the occupation for being guilty. I cannot tell the nation how to struggle, where and at which target to throw the rock.

Odeh is the chairman of the Joint Arab List, and told Yediot Acharonot that he will talk to senior White House and State Dept. officials on “issues that matter to Israel’s Arab Citizens [and] are hardly represented in the international conversation.”

He also will meet with the Palestinian Authority ambassador to the United Nations and will give interviews to all of the “correct” media outlets, such as The New York Times, the Nation, Huffington Post and the Washington Post. There is no indication that he will meet with President Obama.

Odeh also will speak with Jewish leaders, all of them from the Reform movement that decries the presence of Jews in Judea and Samaria and for which President Obama has rolled out the red carpet.

The Obama administration will describe Odeh as the leader of Israeli Arabs, but the truth is that he is not.

The JewishPress.com reported here last month:

A special survey conducted for Channel 2… reveals…54% of Israeli Arab respondents believe that the Arab MKs do not represent them, 25% say that Arab MKs represent them fairly well, and only a minority of 16% say that they represent them ‘very much.’

However, most of these surveyed criticized comments by Nazareth’s Arab Mayor Ali Salem that Odeh and his cohorts have been “ruining” the city by inciting violence and demonstrating in the city against Israel.

Salem said in October:

Every Saturday we get our 20 thousand guests—Jews, tourists and Israelis from across the country. This Saturday we barely reached 1,000 people from out of town.

For three days we had complete quiet. No politicians arrived and they didn’t riot or strike or demonstrate…. Businessmen I spoke to today were pleased, not because no one visited them for a month, but because they manage to rebuild the ruins they (the politicians) left us in the city.

On the eve of Odeh’s departure to Washington, he told Yediot:

Less than a month after Netanyahu’s visit to the US and his half-apology, I go so that I may tell the hard truth about him and the government in Israel, which rose to power through racist incitement against Arab citizens.”
