How Did the Shabak Capture the Terrorist from Friday’s Attack So Quickly?

Sunday, November 15th, 2015

Shadi Ahmed Matu (28), the terrorist who murdered Rabbi Yaakov (40) and Netanel (18) Litman on Friday near Otniel was captured relatively quickly, considering how few leads Israel actually had.

So how did they identify and capture him so quickly?

The breakthrough came from none other than the terrorist’s family.

Following the attack, the terrorist proudly told his brother about the attack, who then informed their father.

The father subsequently contacted Israeli security services and informed them that his son committed the terror attack.

The army went in and arrested him, and he confessed to the attack.

But why would his family do that?

The working assumption of the Shabak is not that the family suddenly became Zionists or cared that Jews were murdered, but rather, they were fearful that their home would be demolished once Israel caught the terrorist on their own.

It turns out that demolishing homes of terrorists actually does work to a certain extent and does have significant deterrent value after all.

Terrorist Stabbing Saves Jewish Man’s Life

Wednesday, November 11th, 2015

(JNi.media) “The terrorist attack saved my life,” Daniel Cohen, 31, who was injured on Monday, Nov. 2, in a stabbing attack in Rishon Lezion, told NRG. Cohen, a kashrut supervisor, was stabbed several times in his upper body and was rushed to the hospital, where doctors discovered a dangerous tumor in his colon, and saved his life.

“I was in the middle of work in Rishon Letzion,” Cohen recalled on Wednesday. “I was at the central bus station and waited for a local bus to take me to my next appointment. I waited for the bus and did not see anything suspicious. Then I moved a little and suddenly the terrorist attacked me and choked me.”

I felt my wrist almost being dislodged,” Cohen continued. “He pulled out his knife and tried to cut off my head. I tried with my hand to push it away and then he tried to stick the knife in my throat. I tilted my head and then he hit me in the jaw, near the ear. He knocked me down to the floor and then stabbed me several times, puncturing along the left side of my body, in the chest, the abdomen and the shoulder.”

“I grabbed his leg and tried to get up,” Cohen related. “I hit him, but couldn’t take away his knife. A passerby tried to throw a trash can in our direction and then the terrorist ran and I ran, too. I was in very serious condition. I knocked for the driver to open the bus door for me. The driver quickly let me into the bus. I reclined in the back seat. They tried to stop the bleeding. They asked me what happened and I groaned in pain. I started to say Shema Israel (which religious Jews say before going to sleep and before giving up the ghost).”

Except that later on it turned out that the attack was very lucky for Daniel Cohen. “When MDA arrived I was still conscious, we reached Assaf Harofeh Hospital — there they put me to sleep,” he said. “I went into a four hour surgery. The surgery went well, they removed the spleen and a piece of liver. My intestines were damaged.”

Then, “as they were treating these organs, they discovered over my colon a tumor I did not know I had. They cut this growth and stitched me and everything,” Cohen said. “Thank God I’ve reached the point within a week that I’m in good shape. They told me they discovered the tumor during the operation. If they hadn’t cut it, it could have gotten worse.”

A resident of Bnei Brak, Cohen is married and the father of five girls. “My wife took it very hard,” he said. “I’m staying in my parents’ home now for rehabilitation, for rest. There’s some pain, but there’s simple faith, especially in the situation we’re in. A person does not understand where a stabbing can lead him. I’m getting stronger, little by little.”

Foiled Stabbing, Dead Terrorist at Eliyahu Checkpoint in Samaria

Monday, November 9th, 2015

Two Arab terrorists tried to stab people at the Eliyahu Checkpoint in Samaria (Shomron) on Route 55, just before 7 AM on Monday morning.

This is the checkpoint that links the Kfar Sava area with Jewish communities in the Shomron region, and near Alfei Menashe, the site of a terror attack barely 24 hours earlier.

One female terrorist was shot and killed. According to the Ministry of Defense, a suicide note with a ‘goodbye’ to her family was found on her body. The attacker was clearly determined to die in her attempt, brandishing a knife while running towards guards despite being ordered several times to drop the weapon and halt. She continued moving towards the guards, even after she was shot, further increasing concerns that she might have been carrying explosives upon her person as well.

The second attacker escaped and a manhunt is on for the terrorist.

No one else was injured in the attack.

The Eliyahu checkpoint is manned by a private security firm for the Ministry of Defense, and not by IDF personnel.

Alfei Menashe, is located close to an Arab village in which an Israeli was stabbed yesterday in a similar attack by two Arab terrorists. That victim was miraculously able to drive himself to a nearby IDF checkpoint where he received first aid before being evacuated to a nearby medical center.
