(JNi.media) At the end of the violent Al-Aqsa Mosque demonstration in Jaffa, the first in this mixed city of Jews and Arabs since October 2000, the city’s Arab business owners are concerned by the deterioration of relations with Jews and the loss of customers, Walla reported.
Five policemen sustained minor injuries Tuesday night in violent clashes with rioting Jaffa Arabs, who identified with the Arab violence in Jerusalem, Israel Radio reported. Police say the riots began during a protest initiated by the Northern Branch of the Islamic Movement—which is radical and anti-Zionist, and residents of Jaffa. The protesters threw stones at the police and at a local Hesder yeshiva (whose students serve in the IDF).
Police said the Arab rioters went on a rampage, throwing stones at vehicles, including buses. Six of the rioters were arrested. Police dispersed the protesters following a meeting with Jaffa community leaders and deployed forces to prevent further disturbances. Police say they are determined to locate the attackers who struck at policemen, and bring them to justice.
“All is calm at the moment,” community leader Samir Motoran, owner of a renowned candy store in Jaffa, told Walla. “From 2000 until today the city of Jaffa has been quiet, we live here in coexistence of Jews and Arabs, and there are no problems. Today, because of the situation in Al-Aqsa Mosque, the Islamic Movement does solidarity protests. Not only in Jaffa, throughout the country. Life here went back to normal after half an hour. The roads are open, and all the Jews are coming back because this city belongs to all of us.”
According Motoran, Arab business owners in the city fear a boycott by Jews, as it was during the second intifada. “My fear is that a small group of extremist Jews will begin to boycott us again, as they did in 2000. We do not want such a boycott, because we live here together and make a living off them. I call on all the citizens of Israel to come to Jaffa in droves. No one would harm anyone, I guarantee it.”
Kamal Aghbarieh, chairman of the Arab Ajami neighborhood, said the boiling point of the riot was in front of the Jaffa yeshiva, “where the demonstration got a little out of control. [Otherwise] the clashes were with security forces and not with the Jewish residents, who live with us together in the same buildings and streets.”
Israel is celebrating the Succot holiday and I wish I could share happy pictures and videos from Israel but there are pogroms happening in Jerusalem and you probably have not heard a thing from your news channels.
Over the past month Muslims have been attacking Jews throughout Jerusalem and have been showing their real anti-semitic face.
A Jewish man who was returning from his Rosh Hashanah (Jewish New Year) dinner was stoned to death by Muslim terrorists, Jewish men and women visiting the Old City of Jerusalem are attacked with stones and molotov cocktail bottles and Jews whose only wish is to pray on the Temple Mount are harassed, kicked, stoned and assaulted by Muslim terrorists.
Let’s stop beating around the bush and call what the Muslims are carrying out in Jerusalem by its real name; a full fledge anti-semitic pogrom against Jews!
It started with Muslim men, women and children screaming their heads off at Jewish worshippers and threatening them.
There were those who said, ‘no big deal’ all they are doing is screaming and there are those who even had the audacity to defend the Muslim behavior as freedom of speech.
The Muslim crowd had no pity on anyone and Jewish women and children were their next targets. The screaming turned to spitting and specific threats. Notice the Jews who were attacked in the video below were not holding any Israeli flags! In fact, they were Ultra Orthodox Jews who are not Zionist! They were on the Temple Mount simply to pray. This is exactly what anti semitism looks like for those of you who still have a hard time identifying the behavior of the Muslims on the Temple Mount!
People were still excusing the fanatic Islamic anti-semitic behavior and claiming it was just the radicals. Then then Muslim officers on the Temple Mount attacked Jews who were looking to just take a drink from a fountain on the Temple Mount. It is simply unreal how there are those around the world who claim Israel is an apartheid and then excuse this blatant demonstration of Islamic racism and anti-semitism.
In case any of you are still under the impression that these Muslim terrorists are just a fringe sect, watch a Muslim ISRAELI Parliament member assault Jews who came to pray on the Temple Mount.
This Arab, Muslim Israeli parliament member who has more freedoms and rights in Israel than he would in any Islamic regime assaults Jewish worshippers telling them to go to hell and that they have no right to pray on the Temple Mount!
Of course when the IDF finally reacted to these acts of terror, the world press pointed a finger at Israel! I am so sick and tired of the blatant anti-semitic behavior of the world! It happens every time and nothing ever changes! Israel is attacked and there is press silence, Israel responds and then the entire world gets up on their hind legs to blame the Jewish State for defending itself and winning!
The videos above were horrific to watch but there were those who excused the terrorist’s behavior with the excuse that Jews praying on the Temple Mount (the holiest place on Earth for Jews) is a provocation. If the videos above made you upset, the two that you are about to watch will infuriate you. Unlike the videos above that took place on the Temple Mount, the videos below took place in Jerusalem. The Jews who were attacked below were not walking to pray on the Temple Mount but were walking to pray at the Western Wall! Please do not tell me that the hatred aimed towards Israel is not anti-semitic. Watch the videos below and explain what settlements, occupation or any other of the other justifications used by the Arabs to murder Jews have anything to do with the attack below!
Watch this Jews get attacked as he walks to the Western Wall wearing his prayer shawl.
Don’t think for a second these Muslim terrorists are a branch of Hamas. They are the fruit of the official PA headed by none other than Abu Mazen himself who last week commented on the current attacks that are taking place in Jerusalem. Israel’s “peace” partner did not condemn the fascist behavior of Muslim terrorists but rather justified them.
Taken from the Palestinian Media Watch website Abbas: We won’t allow Jews’ “filthy feet”“We bless every drop of bloodthat has been spilled for Jerusalem…blood spilled for Allah…Every Martyr will reach Paradise,and everyone wounded will be rewarded by Allah”PA: Jews are filth, they desecrate and defile Jerusalem When anti Israel activists use fake quotes from Israeli leaders I always demand they bring their source and video of the quote they are faking. My demand is usually met with four letter words instead of facts, so here is the video of the man the world calls a “peace partner”
Yes! He did say pure Muslim blood and yes he also claimed Churches are theirs as well.
JUST in case you thought these attacks were random, watch and listen to Abu Mazen explain his solution to the Jews who seek to pray at the holiest place in the world for the Jewish religion.
The audacity of these Muslims knows no boundaries at all. In one case, a Muslim woman assaulted a Jewish man and the man was just not going to take it so he reacted.
Here is the picture of a Jewish man who was covered as assaulting an innocent Muslim woman in Jerusalem.
He sure looks like a crazy Jewish man attacking a very innocent Muslim woman, doesn’t it? Now take a closer look at what this woman is holding in her hand!
So what really happened? Watch the actual video below and see just how far Islamic Taqiyya goes!
Jerusalem is under attack and the press is silent!

(JNi.media) Government legal experts opposed the demand to ease the rules of engagement with live ammunition when there is a risk to civilian lives. Speaking at a special session convened on Sunday by the Prime Minister in response to the rise in violent incidents in the capital, the same experts did authorize the use of non-lethal weapons. They said an examination of the plan to ease the rules will continue.
Netanyahu’s office said that during the hearing the prime minister instructed his legal experts to re-examine the rules of engagement in order to “adapt them to the reality on the ground, so that the police can prevent and deter terrorism.”
Netanyahu told his cabinet meeting on Sunday about the policy changes he wished to enforce following the deterioration in the security situation in Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria. “The police have already used new measures under the new directives this weekend, and struck the stone throwers and Molotov cocktail throwers,” Netanyahu reported. “Today we will allow further expansion of the ability of police forces to act and will add forces to damage the rioters,” he said.
But there have been tensions between the political and legal participants in the debate about the rules of engagement, with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu again demanding that the legal team at the office of the Attorney General re-examine the rules in light of the escalation of Arab violence in Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria. According to NRG, the legal team told the Prime Minister that he cannot change the rules of engagement with live ammunition, which is why the AG’s office had approved police use of the Ruger .22 sniper rifle, a non-lethal weapon used by the military to disperse rioters. However, the Prime Minister’s repeated demand, the Attorney General stated that the examination of the proposed changes will continue.
According to preliminary reports, the police was supposed to present at the discussion a draft proposal, finalized with the Attorney General, on the changes in the permission to open fire on rioters, namely that police would be able to use live fire in cases of risk to civilians inside Israel. However, as the debate had begun, representatives from the Attorney General’s and the State Attorney’s offices stated their opposition to the draft.
Later on Sunday, Israel Radio reported that the Prime Minister said in a private conversations that he was determined to confirm his new anti-terrorism measures put forward earlier. Netanyahu reportedly said his government is the sovereign and it can decide. Netanyahu once again instructed his professional staff to examine changes in the rules of engagement for rioters who throw stones and Molotov cocktails, setting minimum sentences for said violations, and denying the parents of rioting minors their government entitlements, such as social security benefits.
Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein told Israel radio he objected to minimum sentences, but said he was inclined to agree if the penalties remain part of a temporary order and be applied only to adults, and not to children. Weinstein also opposed a change in the rules of engagement for police but agreed to clarify the rules again, in case of a misunderstanding.
According to the Prime Minister, “there is a new situation and we should match the punishment and the rules of engagement to the new reality. We can’t allow that in Jerusalem, our capital, or in any part of the State of Israel, the Galilee or the Negev, people would organize popular terror and start throwing bottles at passing cars, or stones that kill people. This will not become the norm here, the opposite norm will be enforced — we will stop you in mid-action, and punish you to the full extent of the law,” Netanyahu said.
The attack came in retaliation for an arson attack on a home in the nearby Arab village of Duma.
It is still not clear who perpetrated the attack, which killed three of the four family members who were home. However, it is believed by many that Jews torched the home due to Hebrew-language graffiti scrawled at the site.
(JNi.media) Despite a massive police reinforcement in Jerusalem, clashes between Arabs and security forces raged Friday and Saturday, with serious disturbances in several refugee camps; a rocket exploding in Sderot and a Grad intercepted over Ashkelon—the IAF retaliated.
Friday’s violent clashes in Jerusalem included serious disturbances in the Shuafat refugee camp and in the neighborhoods of A-Tur and Issawiya. Molotov cocktails injured Border Guard officers in Jabel Mukaber, a predominantly Arab neighborhood in south-east Jerusalem. Arab rioters were wounded and arrested. There was another attack on the Jerusalem light rail.
Muslim prayers on the Temple Mount ended in relative quiet Friday afternoon, but at the end of the prayers, according to Ynet, the signal was given for Arabs to start rioting at several locations in Jerusalem. Starting at 1:00 PM Friday, Arabs threw stones at police and Border Guard at Jerusalem’s Damascus Gate. In A-Tur, about half a mile from there, on Mt. Olives, masked rioters hurled stones at police and Border Guard. Officers responded with riot control gear and one rioter was injured by police.
Around 3:00 PM an Arab threw a paint bottle at the light rail tram on the Shuafat line—no one was injured.
Around 4 PM some serious disturbances developed in the Shuafat refugee camp, with dozens of youths, some masked and others wearing gas masks, throwing stones and Molotov cocktails at Border Police officers. One rioter, 18, a resident of Hebron, was arrested. The Border Guard also arrested and transferred for questioning a 17 year-old who was throwing stones at police in Wadi Joz.
There were extremely violent clashes in the Jabel Mukaber neighborhood in southern east Jerusalem, where three border policemen were injured, one moderately and two lightly, from a Molotov cocktail that was thrown at them. An Arab who was shot in the leg was taken to Shaare Zedek Medical Center in moderate to severe condition. Eight Arabs who were involved in the clashes were later arrested.
At 6:25 PM, Friday, police arrested a 17-year-old Arab who, along with several other young men, threw Molotov cocktails and stones at the security forces and a security vehicle in A-Tur. The local guard fired in the air to disperse the rioters. There were no injuries.
Around 8:00 PM, three Arabs were wounded lightly to moderately, one of them 13-years-old, during clashes between rioters and IDF and border police forces at the Rachel’s Tomb compound. The rioters threw stones and Molotov cocktails at the security forces, and in response the forces fired at them. The boy was evacuated by Magen David Adom paramedics to Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital in Jerusalem and the rest of the injured were evacuated by the Red Crescent to a hospital in the Palestinian Authority.
At 8:40 PM, sirens sounded in the city of Sderot and the Sha’ar HaNegev regional council, as a rocket hit southern Israel. The rocket, launched from the Gaza Strip, landed adjacent to a bus in the Sderot area, causing damage. Sirens sounded for a second time, at 11:31 PM, in the city of Ashkelon. That rocket was intercepted by the Iron Dome Aerial defense system. No injuries have been reported.
In response to the attacks, IAF aircraft targeted three terror sites in the northern Gaza Strip.
Lt. Col. Peter Lerner, IDF Spokesman stated: “This evening’s acts of aggression are a clear reminder of Gaza’s commitment to violent terrorism. Israeli civilians should not have to live in fear, no one should. Hamas is the ruling power in the Gaza Strip and is therefore responsible, accountable and culpable for every attack emanating from Gaza.”
These were the 10th and 11th rockets to hit Israeli territory since January 2015.
