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.”

Terror Victim Arrested for Organizing Anti-Terror Rally

Thursday, September 17th, 2015

A 61-year-old man from the neighborhood of Armon Hanatziv in Jerusalem was arrested on Wednesday night, on charges that he was one of the organizers of an illegal, but non-violent, anti-terrorism rally held in the neighborhood in response to the ongoing Arab attacks emanating from the neighboring Tzur Bachar neighborhood, according to a report by the Tazpit News Agency.

The man is a victim of a previous Arab terror attack.

Six protesters were arrested in total from the dozens who participated in the protest that began after the funeral for Alexander Levlovitz, who was murdered on Rosh Hashana eve by Arab terrorists who stoned his car, as he drove through the Armon HaNatziv neighborhood.

The protest was held at the traffic circle, at the entrance to Tzur Bachar, where the Arab terrorists threw the stones that caused Levlovitz to lose control of his car and get killed.

The protesters complained of police violence, while the police claimed the protesters were yelling, “Mohammad is a pig.”

The Honenu organization claims that one of the six was arrested after he photographed police violence against the angry residents.

Jerusalem Apartment Firebombed, Miracle Saves Family

Sunday, December 28th, 2014

A Jerusalem family merited a miracle in the southeastern part of the capital on Saturday night when the balcony of their apartment was suddenly set ablaze by a firebomb — but the fire never reached the main living quarters.

The fire caused by the Molotov cocktail damaged part of the balcony, but was extinguished quickly. No one was physically injured, although the residents in the building, located in the Armon HaNatziv neighborhood, were traumatized.

Israeli security teams began to sweep the nearby Arab neighborhood of Jabel Mukabar in an attempt to track down the terrorists.

The attack follows last Thursday’s firebomb attack on a car that left 11-year-old Ayala Shapira with third degree burns on more than a third of her body. Her father, who was driving the vehicle near the Samaria town of El Matan when they were attacked, was also injured and taken to hospital.

Earlier in the day on Saturday, the Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) announced the arrest of two Palestinian Authority Arabs in connection with the attack. The two suspects, ages 15 and 16, are both residents of the village of Azzoun, situated close to El Matan.

Yes Planet Multiplex to Overlook Old City of Jerusalem

Wednesday, April 30th, 2014

The city of Jerusalem has big plans for the Sherover Promenade overlooking the Old City of Jerusalem, with a new multiplex to include an IMAX theater.

The 28,500-square meter facility will be only part of a comprehensive tourism and cultural complex expected to begin at the Jaffa Gate.

The complex will run past the Sultan’s Pool, continue past the Cinamateque, the Khan Theater and the old Ottoman Train Station (now filled with kitschy little shoppes and restaurants), to the promenade, from Abu Tor to Armon Hanatziv.

The six-floor multiplex is to be built jointly by Yes Planet together with its mother company Cinema City International NV and will include a 400-space, three-level parking garage as well as a nearby parking lot to relieve the crazy traffic congestion that drivers traveling into the capital fear most of all.

The NIS 150 million multiplex will feature 16 screens, four auditoriums, an IMAX theater and a DX4 multidimensional movie auditorium in addition to showrooms, art exhibition space, cafes, restaurants, commercial space, book and music stores.

In addition to Sherover Foundation chairman Uzi Wexler, Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat told reporters this week that he feels the ‘shidduch’ with Yes Planet and the movie scene is simply a good fit.

“The new Sherover-Yes Planet Center will add to Jerusalem’s cultural renaissance and to the countless cultural sites that have opened in the city in the past few years,” Barkat said. Yes Planet CEO Moshe (Mooky) Greidinger added that the state-of-the-art technologies featured in the complex will make the cinematic experience especially enjoyable for the multiplex consumer.

Jerusalem Gas Leak Terrorist Captured

Wednesday, March 12th, 2014

The police and Israeli security services have captured the alleged terrorist who tried to blow up three buildings in Armon HaNatziv in Jerusalem, in a mega attack in March.

It’s now been revealed that he had tried to blow up a total of eight buildings in an attempted terror attack just 2 days before.

The man was identified as Aziz Musa Salam Awisat, age 49 and father of 6. Awisat holds Jerusalem Resident status. He lives in Jabal Mukaber.

Awisat admitted to police that after hearing of the gas explosion in Gilo that killed a family and destroyed a building, he was inspired to commit a terror attack that would do the same.

Awisat allegedly cut the gas pipes inside a total of eight buildings on February 28 and March 2, and lit a flame next to them, hoping it would set off a massive explosion, blowing up the buildings and everyone inside.

The gas leak was detected and the Jerusalem fire department evacuated the buildings in time.

DNA left behind at the scene of the attacks was used to find Awisat.

During the investigation police discovered that Awisat also attacked an elderly Haredi Jew on HaNeviim Street in Jerusalem in 2012, hitting him with an ax.
