Late Night in the IDF Reserves…in the Rolling Hills of the Shomron.

Thursday, July 9th, 2015

After a late night meeting for IDF Reserves duty planning, I drove a senior IDF commander back to our home base last night.

Driving through the winding roads in a valley… we saw a car stopped ahead of us, just around the bend, in the pitch black darkness of the night.

“Slow Down and turn on your strobe lights,” said my passenger and commander, as we both readied our weapons. The officer had his gun out the window pointed at the vehicle.

I pulled up alongside the vehicle with PA plates, as my strobe lights illuminated the suspicious car. 

My passenger asked the driver why he was stopped on the road in the middle of the night.

The Arab driver replied sheepishly that the car was out of gas…and help was on its way.

We asked him why he didn’t check the gas gauge on his car….and he replied that it was his brother’s car and he didn’t notice it when he left the house.

“You didn’t notice because you were fasting for Ramadan?” The officer asked.

The driver nodded…turning slightly red from embarrassment.

“Listen….do yourself a favor. Get out of your car….put up a reflective warning triangle…wear a reflective vest…just make sure you are visible so no one slams into you…,” the officer told him.

The driver complied immediately.

As we drove off, I yelled out and wished him a “Ramadan Kareem” as he stared incredulously at the two of us.

We drove back to the base….the rest of the ride was uneventful.

ISIS in Jerusalem, Threatens Christians

Friday, June 26th, 2015

ISIS has released a flyer in eastern Jerusalem threatening to kill all the Christian-Arabs living there.

ISIS explicitly threatened to kill the Christians if they don’t leave eastern Jerusalem by the end of Ramadan.

Presumably, the Pope hopes the Palestinian Authority will save them.

Vehicle Terror Attack Foiled at Gush Etzion Junction

Tuesday, May 26th, 2015

An attempted vehicle terror attack was foiled at the Gush Etzion junction at around 8:30 pmTuesday evening.

A police spokesperson said the terrorist, driving a white Subaru, attempted to hit several police officers sitting in their patrol car at the Gush Etzion traffic circle.

The incident took place near the turnoff for the Arab village of Beit Fajar.

The terrorist then fled in his vehicle towards Beit Fajar, officials said. A district spokesperson added that a traffic patrol vehicle attempted to block the terrorist’s vehicle but he escaped nevertheless.

The targeted officers were not injured, although their vehicle was slightly damaged in the attack.

Police have thrown a dragnet around the area and were searching for the terrorist along with IDF personnel.

Egypt Cites ‘Existential Threat’ from ISIS, ‘Terror Groups’

Thursday, March 12th, 2015

Egyptian Interior Minister Magdi Abdel Ghaffer warned in a speech Wednesday that his nation is facing an “existential war” in its battle against “terrorist groups.”

Speaking to a meeting of Arab interior ministers in Algeria, Ghaffar urged Arab nations to use all their resources to counter the imminent danger. The terrorist organizations, he said, “not only aim to come to power but also to divide Arabic countries and destroy their military and security capabilities…”

The danger posed by fighters from Daesh, the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), has escalated after local-area terror groups pledged allegiance to the organization, the state-run MENA news agency reported.

The Sinai-based Ansar Bayt al-Maqdis and similar local groups in Libya are now linked to Daesh, with Ansar having since changed name to “Sinai Province.”

Egypt proposed creating a joint Arab force to preserve Arab national security. The proposal is to be presented again at the Arab Summit, slated to take place later this month.

UPDATED: Arab Attacks Jerusalem Light Rail Guard – Get Taken Down [video]

Thursday, November 6th, 2014

CORRECTION: We initially reported this as two separate attacks. There was only one incident. There was some confusion as to the exact location from the different reports we received.

An Arab attacked a guard on the Jerusalem Light rail on Thursday morning, according to an 0404 News report.

The incident took place near Sha’ar Shechem (Damascus Gate) when an Arab tried to attack a Jerusalem Light Rail guard near the Old City.

Within seconds, the well-trained Jerusalem Light Rail guards had the man on the floor and handcuffed.

A Border Police patrol in the area then arrested the man.

The man who was arrested is reportedly supposed to be under house arrest for a separate security incident.
