Arab Terrorist Shot When He Tried to Knife Israeli Soldier

Monday, November 23rd, 2015

IDF soldiers shot and killed an Arab terrorist who tried to murder one of the troops on Monday afternoon at the Samaria junction near the Arab village of Huwara, south of the city of Shechem (Nablus).

The attacker drew a knife, approached the troops stationed at the junction and attempted to stab one of the soldiers, according to a statement by the IDF.

“The force responded to the immediate threat and fired at the suspect, resulting in his death,” the statement said.

Last month, Arab terrorists shot at an Israeli vehicle on the road near the Huwara checkpoint, close to Shechem. The car was traveling near the Jewish community of Tapuach at the time.

In September, a Jewish woman was shot in a terror attack near the same area.

The Tomb of the Biblical Patriarch Joseph is located in the ancient holy city of Shechem. Although the city is now under Arab control, the internationally-recognized Oslo Accords mandate free access to the site by Israeli Jews due to its sanctity in both Judaism and Islam.

Nevertheless, any Jew who approaches the site without first arranging an Israeli military escort does so at the risk of his life, as has been repeatedly made clear in numerous tragedies.

Even with the escort of the IDF, it is not also certain that Palestinian Authority Arabs will respect the international mandate. The convoy in which Israel Chief Sephardic Rabbi Yitzhak Yosef was traveling was attacked by PA Arabs, who threw stones at the vehicles as they drove towards the site. Furthermore, following the visit by the chief rabbi, the Tomb was once again burned down by the enraged Arabs.

Emotions Run Deep as Body of Ezra Schwartz, z’l Arrives in US for Burial

Sunday, November 22nd, 2015

Emotions ran deep as the body of young Ezra Schwartz, z’l arrived home in Boston for burial on Sunday, Nov. 22, accompanied by many of the students with whom he had learned weeks earlier.

Dozens of young men bid farewell Saturday night to the 18-year-old yeshiva student who was brutally murdered in a terrorist attack by a Palestinian Authority Arab last Thursday.

Many yeshiva students from Beit Shemesh volunteered to travel the final journey with their fellow student’s body. They and numerous others gathered in a circle at Ben Gurion International Airport in Tel Aviv on Saturday night to sing the Israeli national anthem, HaTikvah. Schwartz was one of a total of five people who lost their lives to Arab terror on Thursday.

Yeshiva University Israel Alumni and Yeshiva University in Israel joined Yeshivat Ashreinu, Israel Friends and Alumni of Maimonides School and Klal Yisroel in mourning the student’s tragic death.

It was announced that a memorial service is scheduled for Sunday evening November 22 on the campus of Midrashiat Amaliah, Rehov Haim Heller 31, Givat Mordechai, Jerusalem. Recitation of Tehillim is set to begin at 6:30 pm. The funeral for the young yeshiva student, scheduled to begin at 7:00 pm Israel time, will be broadcast live on site.

On Saturday night, as farewells were said to the murdered American, people in Kiryat Gat raced for cover while others hunted for another Arab terrorist who stabbed four new victims, one a 13-year-old girl. Several hours later with air and ground support that included some 250 police officers, the stabber was caught just before midnight, with the blood-drenched knife still in his possession.

Barely 100 meters from the scene of the attack, the 16-year-old terrorist was hiding in a backyard on the same street where he stabbed his victims. He was given up to authorities by two of his friends, according to the Hebrew-language newspaper, Yediot Aharonot, and identified as an illegal worker from Hebron.

Jew Rams Terrorist! [video]

Sunday, November 22nd, 2015

Former head of the Samaria regional council, Gershon Mesika purposely rammed his car into an Arab woman at the Hativa square in the Shomron, near the IDF Shomron Brigade headquarters, just after 9 AM on Sunday.

The Arab woman had pulled out a knife and was chasing after a Jewish girl to stab her.

The quick thinking driver rammed his car into the terrorist, damaging his car in the process.

A civilian (possibly Gershon Mesika) and nearby IDF soldiers then opened fire on the terrorist.

No civilians were injured in the attack, though Mesika was lightly bruised from the crash.

Initial reports say the terrorist is either dead or seriously wounded.

‘Call for Young People’ Recruits Terrorist Trainees on Twitter?

Friday, November 13th, 2015

A “Call for Young People” was put out early Friday in Arabic over the Internet via the Twitter social networking site, accompanied by a glowing picture of an Arab teen preparing to hurl a rock with a slingshot.

The fancy computer graphics are attractive to the eye, with bright colors that are sulfurous yellow and cherry-red above. The human figure is in ethereal white. The message seems pretty clear: violence awaits.

The “call” is only one of many such methods used to recruit new blood for the Palestinian Authority terror machine, which has begun to feed on its own children.

Allegedly the logic behind the strategy is two-fold:
1. Israeli authorities are loathe to jail a child, particularly one at age 13 or below, regardless of crime committed;

2. If the child is shot and wounded or killed during the course of attacking Israelis, that too is a “plus” because it makes for a terrific photo image to be used abroad, one that conveys the ultimate in “poor Arab population being abused by the powerful Israelis” graphics.

One way to avoid falling in to this abyss is to bar news coverage at a terror attack site. That is not popular but it can be done, citing the safety of media. Another way, and probably more effective, is for security personnel to erect an opaque cylindrical barrier around the body of any child terrorist shot or otherwise wounded during any attack.

Such a barrier will prevent the photographing of such images and their immediate misuse by media abroad.

The “call for young people” being flashed around the region by social networks in Arabic is not new: it is just updated with the Internet and bells and whistles now provided with computer graphics programs.

The sooner Israel learns to counter such posts, the better off we all will be.

Israeli Security Forces Enter Hebron Hospital to Nab Arab Terrorist

Thursday, November 12th, 2015

Israeli security personnel entered a Hebron hospital to arrest an Arab terrorist who tried to kill a Jew in Gush Etzion on October 25.

The terrorist’s 28-year-old cousin was shot and killed when he attacked the security forces during the arrest operation, according to Tazpit news agency.

During the operation, now cleared for publication, a joint force comprised of Shin Bet, IDF and police operatives entered the Ahali Hebron hospital at night to arrest the attacker, Shalaldeh Azzam Izzat Sa’aban, age 20.

He himself was taken into custody by the forces and transferred to Shin Bet personnel for interrogation.

“It is important to emphasize the security establishment will not allow the existence of shelter for terrorists, no matter where they are,” the Shin Bet said in its statement.

Sa’aban was arrested after he threw rocks at an Israeli’s car and then stabbed him in the chest when he came to a stop and exited the vehicle.

The victim fired his gun at his attacker, who lives in the Arab village of Sair and belongs to a family of Hamas activists and operatives. Despite his own injuries, the terrorist fled the scene after the attack and succeeded in making his escape.

Sa’aban subsequently sought medical treatment at the Elhal Medical Center for the gunshot wound in Hebron, but was tracked down and ultimately identified by the Shin Bet.
