Report: ‘Peace’ NGOs Sold Entry Permits to PA Arabs

Thursday, November 3rd, 2016

Israel’s Channel 1 News on Wednesday night reported that three leftwing NGOs which are furnished with Israeli government issued entry permits for PA Arabs, intended to encourage peaceful coexistence, have been selling those permits illegally to PA Arabs.

According to reporter Eliran Tal, the going rate for each permit was roughly between $500 and $1,000.

The corrupt behavior was exposed on Tuesday, when two officers working for the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT) became suspicious of the entry permits that were presented by a few Arabs at a check point. The suspects were interrogated and confessed to having purchased their permits from the three NGOs.

Police and COGAT plan to summon the heads of all three NGOs for interrogations, to discover whether the sales were initiated from the top or were only endeavors by local staff on the ground.

The identity of the NGOs was not revealed, and it is unknown whether they are Israeli or international. Tal pointed out that the fact that the illegal sale of entry permits took place in the midst of a wave of terror could escalate the investigation from simple fraud and corruption to serious security violations, since those permits could have been used by terrorists seeking to harm Israeli civilians.

Globalists Continue to Pressure Israel to Destroy Jewish Houses while Building Homes for Arabs

Wednesday, November 2nd, 2016

{Originally posted to the Israel Rising website}

Israel’s Civil Administration, the section of the army in charge of administering Israeli control over Judea and Samaria authorized new Arab buildings near Jewish Susiya.  The government has been under intense pressure to provide building permits for Arabs in Area C, the area of Judea and Samaria under complete Israeli control.

While Arab squatters from Yatta continue to illegally build and set up a fake village on top of the remains of the ancient Jewish village of Susiya, the government in Jerusalem has folded to international pressure and agreed to allow Arabs to build houses nearby.

National Union faction head Uri Ariel was outraged.  Yet, the program is part of Defense Minister Lieberman’s new program of reward for “moderate” Arabs while coming down hard on extreme ones.

“The program’s goal is to do good by those prepared to live in co-existence with us, and on the other hand make things harder for those planning terror attacks,” Liberman said, according to Ha’aretz.

However, this reasoning is dubious as the EU has been publicly advocating for new Arab houses in the area for months as well funding the illegal encampment nearby. More than likely, Lieberman’s carrot and stick policy is coverage for his inability to stand up to international pressure.

Obama and EU Forcing Israel to Kick Jews Our of their Homes

Meanwhile, the Jewish community of Amona slated for destruction has sent the government scrambling for solutions to the ruling of the Supreme Court that insisted on leveling the Jewish community.  Although the government is trying to find a way to legalize Amona in order to prevent a coalition crisis, chances are slim Bibi Netanyahu will be able to stall long enough to find a solution.

The Obama administration has stepped in and urged the Israeli government to knock down the Jewish homes effectively leaving the inhabitants homeless because as State Department spokesman Mark Toner has insisted that the 98 homes of Amona are an impediment to peace.

The government in Israel seems incapable of preventing an infringement of the Jewish people’s basic sovereignty in its historic homeland. Until it understands than any folding against international pressure gives more power to its enemies, more and more Jewish communities will be in danger.

Arabs Sprayed Swastikas, Hate Graffiti, in Samaria Jewish Community

Friday, October 28th, 2016

A group of Arabs took advantage of the “secure olive harvest,” and under IDF and police protection given to the Arab pickers, against local Jewish residents, managed to penetrate a military post at the Mitzph Yitzhar neighborhood in Samaria and smear it thoroughly with hate graffiti and with the age-old equation of Star of David equals swastika.

The Yitzhar community was surrounded this past week with Arab olive pickers, each protected by Israeli security forces against the “evil settlers.” And so some of them expressed their gratitude by completely defacing the post manned by their chivalrous defenders, with compliments such as “Death to the Jews,” “Land of Palestine” and, of course, the swastika.

This is not the first time local Arabs have taken advantage of the Jewish protection they receive against their Jewish neighbors. In the past they threw rocks at Jewish cars and even stabbed and IDF soldier near the community of Talmon.

“We view this penetration seriously, because it could have ended in a much more tragic way,” said Yitzhar Secretariat Chairman Uriah Cohen. “The so called secure harvest has proven time and again to be life endangering; this farce must end, once and for all.”

Prosecution Indicts Wedding Guests for Hating Arabs While Dancing

Wednesday, October 26th, 2016

This story would be difficult to comprehend by readers who enjoy the benefits of the First, Second and Fourth Amendments. It also reflects the desperate mindset of Israel’s leftwing ruling elite inside the judiciary who wouldn’t recognize prosecutorial restraint if it bit them on the leg. On Wednesday, thirteen Jews, among them five minors ages 14 to 17, were hauled into the Jerusalem Magistrate’s Court, to be indicted for violence and terrorism, which they apparently carried out while dancing at the wedding of Yakir and Ronnie Ashbel, at the Shirat Yerushalaim hall. Incidentally, the groom, Yakir, was indicted for illegal assembly — at his own wedding.

The cases stem from a video that was shot clandestinely by the GSS at the wedding and broadcast by Israel’s left-leaning Channel 10 News some ten months ago, showing the wedding guests dancing yeshiva style, while stabbing pictures of the baby Ali Dawabsheh, who perished in an arson fire together with both his parents on July 31, 2015. The prosecution, which has indicted one Jewish man and his alleged minor sidekick, is yet to submit its case before a criminal court. There have been rumors of inconsistencies between the confession GSS interrogators have squeezed out of the suspect using torture—with the high court’s approval—and the recollections of local Arab villagers regarding the fire.

Unable to get results on the real arson case, the frustrated prosecution on Wednesday went after the wedding guests who, by stabbing a picture of the dead baby expressed their hatred for Arabs, for a repressive defense minister who locks up and tortures their friends, and for whatever else they disliked so vociferously. The accused also waved handguns and rifles, one of which belonged to an IDF soldier who was among the guests. The guests also created imitation Molotov cocktails by sticking napkins into empty wine bottles. As Attorney Itamar Ben-Gvir, who represents one of the accused, put it, every night at weddings in Umm al-Fahm and countless other Arab communities, there are weddings in which the guests are actually shooting live fire in the air to express their joy — prosecuting Jews for merely waving their guns seems a bit vindictive.

In fact, vindictive is the name of the game in this entire mad hatter prosecution. Ben-Gvir accuses the government of “selective prosecution” and points out that this is being planned as more a show trial than a trial, seeing as the summonses were sent to the media before the defendants received them.

Finally, the indictment declares that “with their actions the defendants issued a unified call to violence or terrorism or praise or encouragement of or support and identification with violence or terrorism, and based on the content of the inciting material and the circumstances under which they were publicized — there exists a real possibility that it would lead to carrying out acts of violence and terrorism.”

Here’s the internal logical conflict of the above statement: it wasn’t the wedding guests who publicized the dancing and the baby picture stabbing and the inappropriate songs. It was a GSS agent who shot the video and handed it to Channel 10 for publicizing. We left messages with several attorneys close to the proceedings regarding this issue, and will update this story when we receive their response.

Israeli Arabs Terrified of Joining Palestinian State

Tuesday, October 25th, 2016

Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman’s Monday interview with Al Quds revived Israeli Arab fears of his proposal, which he has been promoting for several years, that a future peace deal will see a swapping of Jewish settlements in Judea and Samaria for Israeli Arab towns in the Arab triangle in central Israel.

On its face, the Liberman “Umm Al-Fahm proposal,” named after the thriving Israeli Arab city, is logical: why not swap a 100% Arab block of settlements in Israel for a 100% Jewish block of settlements in what has been designated the future Palestinian State? Let the Jews become part of the Jewish State and the Arabs be reunited with their brethren in the Arab State?

MK Ayman Odeh, Chairman of the Joint Arab List, told Israeli Radio Tuesday that Liberman’s suggestion is unacceptable, since the Jewish communities of Judea and Samaria are illegal, and so they are not a viable bargaining chip in the negotiations. In other words, in order for a deal to be acceptable to Odeh, there must be a purely Arab state next door to a partially Arab state.

MK Odeh did not mention that, despite his gushing Palestinian patriotism (he refers to himself as an Israeli Palestinian), he and his voters have no intention of substituting life in a third world Palestinian State for their lives in democratic Israel.

Umm Al-Fahm’s deputy mayor Wisam Agbariya was irate back in 2014, when Liberman first proposed his swap, which would keep the city intact, only switch its political allegiance to the much heralded new Palestinian State. “I admit that I feel Palestinian, but I do not feel that the day of liberation has arrived. I don’t want to undergo another Nakba (the 1948 ‘catastrophe’)” he told Al Monitor. “For 65 years, part of the Palestinian nation has been formed here, let’s call it a population group under special conditions. Now you come to harm us again?”

How would becoming proud citizens of a Palestinian State harm this proud Palestinian? Apparently, he was insulted by being compared with the settlers and by being turned into “a bargaining chip.”

Naturally, he did not mention his understandable aversion to becoming part of a ruthless Arab tyranny that spends all its resources on maintaining the PLO in control and invests nothing in infrastructure and very little in healthcare and education.

Ahmed Machmid, a bookkeeper and nursing student, father of two daughters, told Al Monitor, “I am worried what will be if it does happen, what will be with us? How will we live? How will we become part of a state that has not been established yet? And if it [a Palestinian state]is established, that will be the beginning of our destruction. How does a country that calls itself democratic, dare to expel 300,000 people? Are we supposed to be the victims of this peace?”

Machmid then added, with rare candor, “It is annoying and depressing. There’s no doubt that the State of Israel is the strongest country in the Middle East and everyone wants to live here. I was born here and am connected to the country economically, socially and emotionally. Why am I responsible for the antics of [Arab] Knesset members [Azmi] Bishara or [Ahmad] Tibi? They don’t represent me, and I tell you that they also do not represent the majority. Go out to the street to talk to the people and ask who is willing to become part of the Palestinian Authority. No one.”

Why then would Israeli Arabs wish to see their brethren next door become the subjects of such an undesirable Palestinian State? Apparently, even honest Machmid did not have enough honesty on hand to answer that question.

PA Arrests Arabs Who Visited Jewish Sukkah of Peace

Friday, October 21st, 2016

The Palestinian Authority on Thursday arrested three of its residents who on Wednesday committed the crime of paying a visit to the Sukkah of Peace, an annual celebration of the holiday of Sukkot and the Jewish outreach to our neighbors, offered by Oded Revivi, head of the Efrat local council in Gush Etzion, Judea, Israel’s Channel 2 News reported.

The celebration attracted more than a hundred guests, and was an opportunity for Arab dignitaries from nearby Bethlehem and Hebron to mingle with senior IDF and Israel Police officials, including IDF Operations Dept. Head Major General Alon Nitzan, Judea and Samaria Police District Commander Superintendent Moshe Bareket, Judea and Samaria Division Commander Brigadier General Lior Carmeli, and Etzion Brigade Commander Roman Gofman.

Maj. Gen. Nitzan commented that many disputes can be resolved in this kind of gathering, “including security challenges.”

Revivi told the news channel that he and his council are trying to intervene on behalf of his arrested guests. “Everyone who was present at the sukkah on Wednesday felt the excitement that surrounded this unique event,” Revivi said. “Officers and civilians, Jews and Muslims, sitting together and examining ways to create better neighborly relationships, and how to forge a future of peace.”

“The fact that the Palestinian Authority has chosen to summon for questioning our Palestinian neighbors who had come to drink coffee with us only shows what a great challenge we’re dealing with,” Revivi noted.

GSS Captures Tunnel-Digging Israeli Arabs’ ISIS Cell

Thursday, October 13th, 2016

The Israeli General Security Services have announced on Thursday the capture of an ISIS cell in September made up of Israeli Arabs from the town of Tayibe. The capture marks a new low in the tenuous relationship between Israeli Arabs and their home country.

Tayibe is an Arab city (pop. 40,000) in central Israel, located about 7 miles east of Kfar Saba, part of the Arab Triangle region. During the 1948 War of Independence, Israeli forces captured the Tayibe fields, but not the town itself. Tayibe was then transferred to Israel in the 1949 ceasefire agreement with Jordan. In the process, the residents have claimed the state had taken away from them more than two thirds of their lands. Tayibe became a local council in 1952, and in 1990 was declared a city. The city is 100% Arab, 99.7% Muslim.

In 1996, Hapoel Tayibe F.C. became the first Israeli Arab soccer club to play in the top division. We mention this relatively obscure point because the ISIS cell were arrested after attempting to set on fire the local soccer stadium during the Muslim Holiday of the Sacrifice.

Ibrahim Sheikh Yousef (L), and Amir Gevara

Ibrahim Sheikh Yousef (L), and Amir Gevara

In fact, the three cell members, all Tayibe residents — Ibrahim a Halim Mahmoud Sheikh Yousef, 26, Mohammed Tamim a Qader Nashef, 32, and Amir a Hakim Hafez Gevara, 20 — were dyed in the wool ISIS fans, setting their crosshairs on activities they considered immoral and contrary to the principles of the Islamic State.

Amir Gevara was arrested back in April 2016 by Turkish security when he was attempting to cross the border into Syria, to join ISIS there. As soon as he returned to Israel Gevara was interrogated by the GSS and by police.

Ibrahim Sheikh Yousef was also planning to leave for Syria, for which task he designed and built a pedal powered glider, which he tested once. He was helped by Gevara.

The three cell members also planned to smuggle illegal weapons from Tulkarm, in preparation for the “day of judgement.” The began digging a tunnel from the PA area into Israel, for transporting the smuggled weapons.

The three men were indicted on Tuesday in Lod District Court.
