The CityPass company that owns and manages the Jerusalem Light Rail has implemented a new zero-tolerance policy for Arab violence aimed at the passenger line.
Guards on the train and inside train stations are now being instructed to act with zero tolerance against Arabs suspected of perpetrating attacks against the Light Rail.
Two Arab suspects were asked a short time ago to undergo a brief security check. They refused and instead attacked the guards. Within seconds, both found themselves on the ground, neutralized by the Light Rail guards, who held them until Israel Police arrived to take them into custody.
According to the Hebrew-language 0404 website, Long before the murder of Shuafat teen Mohamed Abu Kdeir this summer, Arabs attacked Light Rail guards, refused spot checks and cursed and attacked citizens riding on the train. They nevertheless were allowed to benefit from the service available to other riders.
Eyewitnesses told “0404” the suspects were screaming in order to create a provocation.
“No one started up with them,” one person said. “They attacked first, (when guards attempted a security check) and then they arrested them. They were screaming like crazy.”
Light Rail guards who are very professional and effective in their work have been given instructions that from this point forward, the safety and serenity of the riders on the train is to be maintained at all costs.
An armed Arab infiltrator was caught red-handed Sunday by the security coordinator of Shokeda religious moshav in southern Israel.
The suspect, who was carrying a knife and a hand drill, is believed to have sneaked in through the border in the Nachal Oz area. It is not yet known how he managed to get through the security fence and past the IDF lookouts.
He then walked over to Shokeda in the Sdot Negev Regional Council district, about seven kilometers (4.3 miles) from the Gaza border.
The suspect was turned over to security forces for further questioning.
The area’s kibbutzim and moshavim are usually filled to capacity with holiday tourists at this time of year. This year, however, they are still seeing vacancies, said Amit Lavkov, tourism association CEO.
“People want to make sure it’s really calm and the cease-fire has lasted,” Lavkov said. “There are fewer tourists than last year.
How many times have you gotten in an argument with an anti Israel troll on the internet and heard them spew words like Israel are Nazis or what we are doing to the Arabs is worse that what the Nazis did to the Jews?!
Besides having a total gap in historical knowledge, these claims are purely antisemitic. Blaming Jews or the Jewish State with Nazism is the same as telling us we bake children blood in our Matzah (The old blood libel that was used as an excuse to boycott and slaughter Jews).
As soon as you call them antisemitic they pull out the “not everyone who is anti-Israel is an antisemite!”
Some anti-Israel activists are simply ignoramuses, but those who know the facts and still blame Israel for genocides that never happened are purebred antisemites!
This is Fatah (Palestinian Authority) NOT Hamas!
Am I pulling out the antisemitic card to try to justify occupying the Arabs? Well, let’s listen to what the Arabs themselves have to say and then you tell me if I am being paranoid!
I listened to this several times and I did not here the word ZIONISTS, only Jews! I also did not hear about the settlements and the call for Jihad did not end with Israel. I heard an old Islamic passage talking about committing genocide against the entire Jewish as well as the American people! If you have a problem with the Jewish State fighting these people then guess what? You are a full fledged antisemitic bastard (excuse my French).
Just in case you thought this was a result of the settlement movement, here is video of the Muslim religious leader who teamed up with, yup, you guessed it, Hitler and way before a single settlement was on the ground!
Knesset Members Hanin Zoabi, arguably Israel’s most hated MK, Jamal Zahalka and Basel Ghattas Hamas’ benefactor Qatar last week and reportedly met with former colleague Azmi Bashar, who fled the country seven years ago after being indicted for spying on behalf of Hezbollah in the Second Lebanon War in 2006.
The Balad party MKs appeared on Al Jazeera, where they espoused their criticism of the Israeli government.
Al Jazeera is financed b and based in Qatar, which also has financed Hamas terror and has provided technology for Hamas to launch rockets from underground in Gaza by pressing on a computer button in Qatar.
Knesset Members from Yesh Atid and Likud asked Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein to investigate the connection between the three Arab MKs and Bashara as well as Qatar.
Weinstein previously has shown himself to be feeble when it comes to investigating incitement and alleged terrorist connections among Arab Mks, particularly Zoabi, who was on the IHH flotilla when terrorists brutally beat IDF navy commandos before the soldiers were able to overcome the Mavi Mamara ship trying to break the maritime embargo on Gaza.
The Knesset Ethics Committee got tough with Zoabi this year by suspending her for a period of time from the Knesset for hateful speech, including epithets at Arab security guards who escorted her out of the legislature after inciting remarks.
Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman, who heads the Yisrael Beitenu party, said he will continue to whatever has to be done to prevent the Balad party’s fifth column from representing a terrorist organization in the Knesset.”
