Nazareth Mayor: Barely 1,000 Jewish Shoppers Saturday

Sunday, October 18th, 2015

(JNi.media) Nazareth Mayor Ali Salem, who last week ruined the Channel 2 News interview with Ayman Odeh chairman of the Knesset Joint Arab List, is still furious. “Every Saturday we get our 20 thousand guests—Jews, tourists and Israelis from across the country,” he told Ma’ariv Saturday night. “This Saturday we barely reached 1,000 people from out of town.”

Salem did not want to call what goes on in this city these days a “catastrophe” (which, in Arabic, is Nakba, a word that dates back to the war of 1948-9)—he prefers to maintain his optimism. “For three days we had complete quiet,” he continues. “No politicians arrived and they didn’t riot or strike or demonstrate. Therefore I believe, as early as next Saturday, if the quiet will be maintained, everyone will return. Businessmen I spoke to today were pleased, not because no one visited them for a month, but because they manage to rebuild the ruins they (the politicians) left us in the city,” he said.

“There were even smiles, even though the shops were empty. Everyone knows that if the quiet continues, everything will fall into place. We are built to absorb every Saturday 20 thousand and sometimes 30 and even 50 thousand, just come, Jews, Arabs and Christians. Send your Saturday here, shopping and touring. There’s a lot to see.”

Salem stresses the importance of the economy in his city. “If you are strong in trade, in the economy, you are strong in everything. Why am I fighting against any carpetbaggers who come to us to get their cut? Everyone shouts coexistence, and I shout existence and coexistence. Let us support the city. Let the traders make a living, let Nazareth have a livelihood. We’ve had two rarely prosperous years in this city, until the riots. Now we need to rebuild everything. Quietly, with colors, with sights, with smells.”

Salem optimistic but also concerned. “I walk around town and see what’s going on here, so no one can come to teach me how to make a city beautiful, strong and clean. Everyone has heard and seen me, they all know what I think, therefore I am not going to talk any more to the media…

Kuseifa Arab Questioned for Incitement on Facebook

Wednesday, October 14th, 2015

An Arab resident of the Bedouin town of Kuseifa was arrested Wednesday afternoon on charges of incitement to violence.

Kuseifa is a 10-minute drive west of the Negev city of Arad along Highway 31, just past the ancient Biblical city of Arad, where tourists can view the archaeological excavation of Tel Arad.

The 20-year-old, an employee at a factory at the Dead Sea in southern Israel, was taken into custody by police in the area, according to the Walla! website.

“The intifada has started, and I am sure that afterwards there will not be one Jewish pig here,” the worker reportedly wrote on his Facebook page.

He was taken for questioning by police to the precinct in Arad.

Kuseifa is comprised of Bedouin and Palestinian Arabs who have intermarried together, most of whom originate from the Hebron area.

Arab Demonstrates How Forest Fires are Started by Arson Terrorists

Sunday, August 9th, 2015

Most media outlets feature videos on how to prepare gourmet meals or build your own dream house.

Here in the Middle East, if you know where to look, apparently one can also find footage on how to set your own forest fire.

Arson researchers have found quite a bit of evidence recently in forests and open areas throughout Israel that prove most of the recent fires that were so terribly destructive were the result of arson.

Although in many cases it was clear that the fires did not start as a result of travelers in the area, fire investigators found that difficult to prove, due to a lack of evidence.

But on Saturday night, the Hebrew-language 0404 news website published a helpful video shot by Palestinian Authority Arab photographer Jihad Qade, showing an Arab demonstrating how to set a forest fire on the outskirts of Jerusalem.

Arson investigators are not always able to track down the evidence behind most of the fires that are set by such terrorists.

This video footage, however, together with some documentation by Arab media, shows the methods used to set some of these fires involves using a flame, an aerosol spray can and a spark plug.

The flame is then directed toward a tree or a bush of thorns, and soon it catches and begins to spread on its own.

In the above footage obtained by 0404, a fire is shown being lit by an Arab whose identity is concealed by a keffiyeh which covers his face as he stands in the open space next to a base in the Jerusalem area.

The goal of such activity is ominously clear: to burn and murder Jews.

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 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.

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.
