2 Yeshiva Students Injured in Friday Night Terrorist Attack

Saturday, November 22nd, 2014

Two student from Yeshiva Beit Orot on the Mount of Olives were injured Friday night when Arab terrorists set upon them as their group of 8 unarmed students were walking to their Yeshiva, coming back from the nearby Beit Hachoshen where they went for evening prayers.

The Choshen is a building on top of the Mount of Olives where 5 families reside, and has a hall that is serves as a local synagogue. It is a 15 minutes walk from Beit Orot.

One of the Jewish students, age 24, was slashed in the back with knife, a second, age 21, suffered a head injury from a metal pole wielded by the group of Arab terrorists. At least one Molotov Cocktail was also thrown at the group, and just barely missed hitting them.

The group of student, including the two wounded Yeshiva students ran the rest of the way back to the Yeshiva, and MDA ambulances transported them to Shaarei Tzedek hospital where they were stitched up. They were listed in lightly injured condition.

Residents of the area are angry that there wasn’t an active police presence on the A-Tur road, where numerous attacks against Jews and tourists repeatedly happen.

Just before Shabbat, according to Jerusalem councilman Arieh King, the local police commander announced a curfew for Jewish residents of the area, stating that any Jews found walking outside in Mount of Olives areas would be arrested. No such astounding announcement was made for the violent Arabs.

Yishai Fleisher, a local resident and JewishPress.com contributing editor told JewishPress.com that the residents will continue to walk the roads of Jerusalem, and the police had better get their act together, “The police need to defend our rights to walk the streets of Jerusalem, not curtail them.”

Yishai adds, the police didn’t place an actual general curfew on the residents from going outside, but unconditionally “forbade” the students from leaving via the back, southern gate of Beit Orot which leads only into Arab areas where rioting is happening.

Run-Over Terror Attempt Foiled Near Neve Tzuf

Thursday, November 13th, 2014

At around 11:50 AM there was an attempted run-over vehicular terror attack at the Tzofit bus/hitchhiking station. The Arab terrorist tried to run over 3 people, but failed.

The attack happened on the highway near the entrance to the Tzofit neighborhood of Neve Tzuf which is in the Binyamin region.

Ron, a local resident who was on guard duty near the entrance told Tazpit that two boys were sitting on the curbside, and he was standing near them when they saw an Arab van driving towards them at high speed on the shoulder of the road. The guard pointed his gun at the driver and the terrorist then quickly swerved away back onto the road and drove off in the direction of Bir Zit.

The IDF has put up roadblocks and is looking for the terrorist.

Neve Tzuf, also called Halamish, is built on the ruins of an ancient Jewish Talmudic-period city of the same name.

Flash Grenade Thrown At Jerusalem Restaurant

Wednesday, November 12th, 2014

A flash grenade was thrown in Jerusalem’s First Station on Wednesday evening. No one was injured in the attack, and there was no damage.

The grenade was thrown into the outside seating area of the Adom restaurant, located in the First Station promenade.

Witnesses say they saw three Arabs throw the grenade.

First Station is a restaurant and cultural center, at the location of Jerusalem’s old train station. It is situated near Jerusalem’s Abu Tor neighborhood and the Begin Center, where Yehuda Glick was shot two weeks ago by an Arab assassin.

Flash grenades make bright flashes of light and loud explosions, but are non-lethal.

Police are searching the area for the attackers.

Yesterday, a flash grenade was thrown onto Ben Yehuda Street from on top of a building. No one was hurt in that attack.

Together We Will Guard the Jerusalem Light Rail [photos]

Sunday, November 9th, 2014

With the Arabs rioting, breaking windows on the Jerusalem Light Rail, throwing firebombs, and running people over on the train platforms, riding the train can be a bit of a scary and even depressing experience for Jerusalem’s citizens.

A group of Bnei Akiva youth group girls decided they needed to change that.

Every night, from 6 PM to 8 PM, this spirited group of girls from Bnei Akiva’s “Chevraya Bet” are riding the train from beginning to end, and during that time will be raising up the spirits of their fellow passengers.

Second Victim From Jerusalem Light Rail Terror Attack Dies

Sunday, October 26th, 2014

Karen Yemima Muskara (22), a tourist from Ecuador, is the second victim to die from last week’s terror attack on the Jerusalem Light Rail platform near Ammunition Hill. She was being treated at Hadassah Ein Kerem following the attack.

The victim was in Israel, and in the process of converting to Judaism. [We have a reader report that she completed her conversion to Judaism and was just waiting to receive her Teudat Zehut - Israeli ID card.]

She will be buried tonight, Sunday, at 12:30am (time updated). The funeral will start at the Shamgar Funeral Home and then head to the Mount of Olives.

The public is asked to go to the funeral.

The terrorist, Abdel Rahman al-Shaludi, also killed 3 month old Chaya Zissel Braun when he drove his car onto the train platform, running down nine commuters.

Shaludi, a member of Hamas, was subsequently shot by a policeman and died a few hours later in the hospital.

Following his death, Arabs in eastern Jerusalem began to riot again.
