Terrorists Against the Wall

Monday, July 18th, 2016

A group of “former” Arab terrorists and their leftwing Israeli enablers held a protest in Gush Etzion on Friday, between Beitar and Efrat.

They shut down Highway 60, the main highway between Jerusalem and Gush Etzion. They held up signs with ridiculous statements on them, such as “The wall is violent”.

While my regular readers know that I am not a fan of the security wall or of Iron Dome, as these are defensive measures we use instead of fighting to win, there’s no question that the psychological shock the Jihadists and their supporters felt when the security fences and walls went up, forced them to reevaluate the “success” of their suicide bombing campaign and ability to continue them.

Almost immediately the Israeli Left and the Arabs began fighting the wall, always leaving out of their narrative the fact that the Arab terrorists were the ones responsible for it having to go up in the first place.

The group who blocked Highway 60 in Gush Etzion describe themselves as having “actively participated in the cycle of violence”, which in plain English means, the Arabs in their group were active terrorists who tried to, and perhaps succeeded in hurting and killing Jews.

In fact, it may very well be that included in this group protesting the security wall are failed suicide bombers and the people that sent them.

Of course people like that would consider the wall “violent”, as perhaps more than anything it affected their ability to kill lots of Jews, and it heavily reduced the active Arab support for their acts of terrorism.

It’s an obvious question to ask, are these “former” terrorists still supporting terror? Is “peace” simply a new tactic for their same nefarious goals?

We could talk about their one-track, mostly one-sided message, and how they don’t block the roads to Yata and Dura in colorful protest of the serial Arab terror emanating from those villages.

They explain away their one-sided protests and imbalanced messages citing the “occupation”. Their catchall word for excusing everything.

But to me, the real warning sign is how “former” terrorists, whose plans were thwarted by the security wall, are now calling to tear down one of Israel’s primary passive deterrents against suicide bombers and Arab terrorism – right in the midst of a new wave of terrorism.

I think they’ve answered the question.

Jerusalem Mayor Praises Train Guards for Stopping the Terror Attack

Sunday, July 17th, 2016

Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat praised the Jerusalem Light Rail’s guards for their vigilance which resulted in the foiling of the terror attack this morning.

Barkat said, “This morning, thanks to the vigilance of the Jerusalem municipality guards of the Light Rail a major attack was prevented. The guards stationed at the Light Rail are part of the fabric of the human shield of Jerusalem against the terrorists who are trying to sow terror and fear. Our message to the public is to continue the routine, vigilant and never give in to terrorism. We must pursue the terrorists everywhere without compromise and without restraint, while continuing to develop and strengthen Jerusalem. We can be proud of the security men of the Jerusalem Municipality and the policemen of Jerusalem with their great devotion and willingness to risk their lives to save the inhabitants of Jerusalem. Thank you on behalf of local residents.”

Jerusalem resident Miriam Schwab described the scene on her Facebook page:

I’m on the bus to work and we come to a complete standstill. The bus driver tells us it’s a suspicious object, and opens the door so we can get off and walk since it looks like it will be a while. Oh man, I sigh, and start walking. I figure I’ll try to catch the light rail. I get to King George and Jaffa Road, and it’s crawling with police and taped off. More serious looking than your typical “suspicious object” situation. What’s going on, I ask two guys standing next to me. One of them saw it all: a terrorist with a bomb was going to get on the light rail. One of the train guards saw him and suspected him. He risked his life, tackled him, and neutralized the threat. That’s what I know so far. I’m a little bit freaking out, but at the same time am in awe of people like this guard who risk their lives to save all of ours. We are surrounded by heroes. Update: the guard who stopped the terrorist is a Druze Arab.

EXCLUSIVE: Eyewitness Reveals More Details Surrounding the Murder of 13-Year-Old Israeli-American Girl

Thursday, July 7th, 2016

[First Published in Western Journalism.]

While the knife jihad in Israel continues, new details emerged about what exactly happened last week Wednesday when 13-year-old Israeli-American Hallel Yaffa Ariel was slaughtered by a 19-year-old Palestinian Authority Arab terrorist in the town of Kiryat Arba near Hebron in Israel.

A source in the security forces of Kiryat Arba who wishes to remain anonymous told Western Journalism what happened in the house where the girl was sleeping, exhausted after a dance recital in Jerusalem the night before.

The horrific terrorist act that rocked Israeli society began when an alarm about a breach in the security fence was sent to members of the rapid response security team.

One of the security guards who responded to the alarm originally thought that the alarm was caused by youths who exit the town via the fence, but when he arrived in the area he noticed suspicious sounds coming out of the house of the Ariel family.

At that moment a second member of the security team arrived, and the guards decided to call Amichai, Hallel’s father, who is also a member of the local civilian rapid response security team. He confirmed that his daughter was at home.

A short while later, the father of the girl arrived to open the front door of the house, followed by one of the security guards. He immediately went to the girl’s room to check if everything was OK. When he opened the door, he saw his daughter bleeding from multiple stab wounds. Ariel called out Hallel’s name, but she didn’t respond. He then tried to resuscitate her but soon realized that his daughter had died. He then collapsed in shock.

At the same time, one of the other security guards noticed from his position in the corridor a moving shadow behind a closet in the room. He understood that the terrorist was still there and was trying to hide behind the closet.

He noticed that the terrorist, Mohammad Tra’ayra from the village Bani Na’im near Hebron, was in the possession of a very large knife that looked like a sword. The guard decided to neutralize Tra’ayra, shooting him two times in the back.

Tra’ayra collapsed, but that didn’t prevent him from stabbing the second security guard, who also was hit in his head by a ricocheting bullet. His colleague saved his life by shooting the terrorist in the head.

The wounded security guard lost an eye but the bullet miraculously didn’t reach his brain.

All this happened in the span of a few seconds, the source told Western Journalism.

He said that the girl had eight stab wounds in her upper body and that the terrorist also stabbed Hallel in her throat.

At Hallel’s funeral, her dance instructor called the girl  “a princess in white with a penetrating gaze and a stormy silence about her.”

“Yesterday, like a white bird, you danced the dance of your life,” Esther Marom said, referring to Hallel’s dance performance in Jerusalem the night before the horrific terrorist act.

Hallel’s mother, Rina Ariel, said at the funeral, “God, Father, how do you give a eulogy for a 13-and-a-half-year-old girl? I had the merit of giving birth to you and from that moment on my life was filled with light. For 13-and-a-half years you gave her to me for safekeeping, and now I give her back to you. But Father, there’s no more room up there in heaven, the people of Kiryat Arba have already filled it.”

She also had something to say to the mother of Mohammad Tra’ayra.

“I want to address the mother of the terrorist who did this. I teach my children to love and you’ve have educated yours to hate,” Hallel’s mother said.

Later Rina Ariel stunned the thousands of Israelis who came to her home in Kiryat Arba to comfort the family. Instead, she comforted her fellow Israelis.

She told them to be strong and that by living in Kiryat Arba (the place where Abraham once lived, according to the Bible) Israelis show the Palestinian Authority Arabs that they will win. By living in places the Arabs claim as their sole property, Jews pave the way to the rebuilding of the Temple (Har HaBayit), she told her sobbing visitors before eulogizing her daughter.

The Palestinian Authority, meanwhile, has yet to condemn the ruthless murder of Hallel Yaffa Ariel.

PA President Mahmoud Abbas made no official statement after the attack and reportedly refused to answer telephone calls from foreign leaders who wanted to urge him to condemn the murder. He also ordered Palestinian Authority media not to report on the brutal attack.
