2 Elderly Women Stabbed in Jerusalem Terror Attack on Eve of Israel’s Memorial Day

Tuesday, May 10th, 2016

Two elderly Jewish women were stabbed by two Arab terrorists as they walked along a path under the boardwalk in Jerusalem’s Armon HaNatziv neighborhood early Tuesday morning near the Arnona section of the city, which is not far from Arab neighborhoods.

The victims were part of a group of five women who were out enjoying the beautiful spring weather in the capital when the two masked Arabs launched their attack, according to police sources.

Both women were in their 70s and were stabbed in the chest, one stabbed multiple times. The two victims were rushed by paramedics from the Magen David Adom emergency medical response service to Jerusalem’s Shaare Zedek Medical Center. They were both conscious and were listed in fair condition upon admission to the hospital’s Trauma Unit.

Two suspects were tracked down and arrested within a short time after they managed to escape, fleeing in the direction of the Jabel Mukabar section of Jerusalem, according to security sources. Jabel Mukabar has been a terrorist stronghold in the city for months.

Israel Demolishes 2 Terrorists’ Homes in Jerusalem

Monday, January 4th, 2016

The homes of two Jerusalem terrorists were demolished Monday morning by IDF forces.

Both structures were located in the neighborhood of Jabel Mukaber, a terrorist stronghold from which a number of Arab attackers have originated.

The two terrorists, together with a third carried out lethal attacks on October 13 in Jerusalem that killed four and wounded 16 others.

In response, Israel’s High Court of Justice approved orders to demolish the homes on December 23, 2015. The orders were carried out on Monday morning (Jan 4).

The home of Baha’a Aliyan, 22, was demolished. Alliyan boarded Egged bus No. 78 in the Armon HaNatziv neighborhood together with another terrorist, Bilal Ranem, 23 and began stabbing and shooting the passengers. Two victims died instantly and a third died a few weeks later. More than a dozen others were wounded in the attack, which took place not far from the terrorists’ own neighborhood. Aliyan was shot and killed by police. Ranem was shot and wounded; he was arrested by police and taken into custody.

Aliyan’s home was completely demolished Monday morning by IDF engineers.

Nearly simultaneously, Abu Jamal rammed his Bezeq service vehicle into a crowd of people at a bus stop on Malchei Israel Street in central Jerusalem, then got out and began chopping whoever was left standing, with a cleaver. Rabbi Yeshayahu Krishevsky, z’l, 60, was killed.

The home of Ala’a Abu Jamal – who was employed as a technician with the Bezeq telephone company – was filled with concrete by the IDF engineers, and completely sealed off.

Jerusalem City Hall Tells Mosques to Turn Loudspeakers Down and Around

Tuesday, November 3rd, 2015

In the still of the night, Jerusalemites hear the sonorous Arabic call to prayers.

And another. And it keeps going on and on, until the night — and day — is filled with the blare of the Arabic wails, at least in Jewish neighborhoods situated cheek-and-jowl with Muslim neighbors. In the past, the loudspeakers weren’t so loud.

But the long-simmering battle over the loudspeakers of the mosques is heating up in the holy city and now is approaching the boiling point.

Imams in the Arab neighborhoods of Jabel Mukabar and Sur Baher were asked to direct speakers in their mosques pointed towards the center of their own neighborhoods, which have become strongholds for terrorist cells and lone wolf Arab attackers.

In addition, neighborhood representatives were told to obtain new speakers with adjustable volume; this coming after the broadcast level was measured at or near the allowable limit.

Police have also begun to track the sermons of imams in neighborhood mosques to monitor the clerics for incitement to violence.

“This is a disgrace, and an attempt to damage the values of the religion,” claimed Jabel Mukabar activist, Mehdi Akram.

The demand to order the mosques to change the direction of their speakers and for the vehicles to obtain those with adjustable volumes followed complaints from the residents of the Armon HaNatziv neighborhood.

The residents of the Jewish neighborhood hear the wail of Islam’s call to prayer at all hours of the day and night, since Muslims are called to prayer around the clock, five times a day. The residents of the Jewish neighborhood say the Muslim loudspeakers have been wailing particularly loudly ever since the start of the current wave of terror.

Environmental Protection Department personnel sent to measure the noise level at the mosques under an initial pilot test told the Hebrew-language Ynet news site they found abnormal intensities in the neighborhood. The noise level in the Armon HaNatziv neighborhood is “absolutely unbearable” when all three mosques begin to call for prayer from Jabel Mukabar at four o’clock in the morning, Ynet reported.

Residents of the Arnona neighborhood made similar complaints about the five mosques operating in Sur Baher.

Several months ago, Jerusalem city hall approved a comprehensive program for testing the noise levels from 200 mosques in Arab neighborhoods in the city. The cost of the pilot, which tested mosques in Jabel Mukaber and Sur Baher, was approximately NIS 200,000.

American-Israeli Dies from Armon HaNatziv Terror Attack

Tuesday, October 27th, 2015

A 76-year-old American-Israel died Tuesday morning from knife and bullet wounds in the deadly attack on a bus in Jerusalem’s Armon HaNatziv neighborhood near Talpiot two weeks ago. One of the terrorists was killed, and the second one was arrested. Both were from the adjacent Jabel Mukhaber neighborhood. The latest victim is former Connecticut school principal Richard Lakin, who was being treated Hadassah Ein Kerem. His death brings to the death from the attack to three. Lakin was principal at Hopewell School for 15 years before making Aliyah with his wife and two children. He will be buried on Wednesday. His sons posted on Facebook Tuesday morning:

Dad passed away this morning. He was 76 years old, and had eight grandchildren. He was butchered by Muslim terrorists who shot him in the head and stabbed him multiple times during an attack on Bus 78 in Jerusalem’s Armon HaNatziv neighborhood. After the attack Dad was rushed to Hadassah Ein Karem Hospital in Jerusalem where the incredible medical staff worked diligently around the clock for two weeks trying to save his life, but, alas, his injuries were too severe. ‘We love you Dad and will do our best to live respectful, loving lives and pass along ‘acts of kindness.’

Other victims of the stabbing and shooting attack are Haviv Chaim, 78, and Alon Goldberg, 51. Chaim’s wife Shoshana was one of 15 others who were wounded in the attack. She suffered serious wounds but is recovering.

There’s Nothing More Permanent Than Temporary

Monday, October 19th, 2015

Police have begun putting up “temporary”, portable, concrete walls in the Jabel Mukaber neighborhood of Jerusalem, adjacent to the Armon HaNatziv neighborhood.

The police hope these temporary structures will prevent the Arabs of Jabel Mukaber from throwing firebombs at the Jewish-owned homes in Armon HaNatziv as well as at police, as they have been doing.

Of course, as everyone knows, there’s nothing more permanent than something that is temporary, and besides, who knows when the Arabs of Jabel Mukaber will finally decide to start behaving like civilized human beings again (and if so, for how long).

4 Border Guard Police Hurt in Jerusalem Terror Attack

Friday, September 18th, 2015

Four Israeli Border Guard Police officers were wounded late Friday afternoon in a riot that started in the Jerusalem neighborhood of Jabel Mukabar. The site is near Armon Hanatziv, where a Jewish man was murdered in a road terror rock attack earlier this week.

Two of the soldiers were shot and two others were targeted by firebombs hurled by the rioting Arabs. One of the four sustained a hand injury; two others were treated at the scene by Magen David Adom paramedics for burns. A fourth soldier was evacuated to Shaare Tzedek Medical Center in serious condition.

A number of the rioting Arabs were also wounded in the melee as security personnel worked to disperse the mob. In addition to the rocks, bottles, firebombs and firecrackers being hurled, the rioters also burned tires and trash bins in the street.

Clashes were reported at the Damascus Gate entrance to the Old City of Jerusalem earlier in the afternoon after the Friday call to Islamic prayers.

The violence comes in response to the call by Gaza’s Hamas terrorist organization for a “day of rage” in solidarity with Jerusalem Arabs who have been attacking Jewish civilians and security personnel all week.

Late Thursday night, IDF soldiers fired back at Palestinian Arab terrorists who were firebombing Israeli drivers traveling on the road between the Samaria Jewish communities of Itamar and Elon Moreh.

“Forces from the IDF’s Rotem battalion, who were performing an ambush in the vicinity, responded with accurate fire against the firebomb thrower,” said the IDF Spokesperson. “One of the terrorists was hit by the fire, and an additional terrorist was arrested following a pursuit.”
