Islamic Movement Officials Arrested

Sunday, November 27th, 2016

By Andrew Friedman/TPS

Shin Bet and Israel Police filed indictments in the Nazareth District Court Sunday against four men charged with funding and supporting Mourabition activities and with involvement in a banned organization. The security agencies also said that several senior officials of the Islamic Movement have been detained in recent months.

Members of the Mourabitoun and Marabitaat were paid to harass Jews on the Temple Mount.

The arrests follow a government decision in November, 2015 to ban the Islamic Movement, a move which led to the closure of a long list of institutions associated with the Movement, including the Mourabitoun and Marabitaat.

On Sunday, the Shin Bet said in a statement that violent activities of the Mourabitoun and Marabitaat on the Temple Mount endangered the safety of visitors to the site and caused tensions and violence to be raised, in addition to the violation of Israel’s sovereignty at the site.

The arrested include:

– Khichmat Fahim Mustafa Na’amna of Araba – Yahiye Mahmed Mahmoud Sutri of Nazareth – Abd el-Carim Mohammed abd-elKader Kareem of Kfar Kanna – Ismail Diab Mahmoud L’hoani of Araba The four men worked to preserve the Al-Mourabitouns’ work even after they were made illegal. Six more people, who are accused of being Mourabitoun leaders in the north, were also detained.

The Shin Bet said interrogations revealed the the accused were involved in an active network of fundraising and payments, including transportation to Jerusalem and the Temple Mount from all around Israel.

The interrogations also focused on Arab residents of Jerusalem and of the south, who are suspected of transferring money to the Mourabitoun.

Manhunt for Arsonists Continues, 30 Arrested So Far [video]

Saturday, November 26th, 2016

On Saturday, the fifth day of the wave of fires, Israeli security forces continued a countrywide manhunt for Arab pyroterrorists involving a special effort of the IDF Judea and Samaria Division in cooperation with police and the GSS to identify and arrest suspects. So far 30 suspects have been captured.

The IDF manhunt includes use of Drones, skimmers, as well as observers in patrol cars, on motorcycles and on foot, who are deployed to locate arsonists.

On Saturday, a surprise IDF check post near Deir Qaddis, outside Modiin Illit, seized a car with three passengers suspected of having carried out arson. Soldiers discovered in the car two full gasoline bottles, one empty gasoline bottle, and a sack full of rags, gloves and ignition fuses. The three suspects were taken in for interrogation.

Earlier on Saturday, an Arab youth from Battir, a village in Gush Etzion, was arrested in Begin Park, outside Beitar Illit, after a green patrol of the Nature and Parks Authority alerted security forces. A combined force of police and the Tavor Battalion of the Home Front Command captured the suspect after he had returned home to his village. The green patrol managed to put out the fire.

On Friday, perimeter security cameras around Ariel, in Samaria, caught three suspects standing in an open field who took out Molotov cocktails and started a fire. The three were arrested and security forces put out the fire.

Israel Police issued a call to the “entire Arab leadership” in Israel and in the Palestinian Authority, “to show responsibility in these days, and strongly condemn and assault risking human life, regardless of religion, race, or nationality, and which also causes reversible harm to nature. We are certain that the entire leadership will express its revulsion and will excoriate both the incitement and the inciters who promote damage to people and to nature.”

The police call concluded with the statement: “The power of leadership is tested by its ability to influence the margins in its society and to bring about an immediate cease of condemnable actions.”

Four Arrested in Ukraine in Attack on Chabad Rabbi

Wednesday, October 19th, 2016

Police in Ukraine have arrested four suspects for the brutal beating and robbery two weeks ago of Chabad-Lubavitch emissary Rabbi Mendel Deitsch, who remains in serious but stable condition at a hospital in Israel.

According to local press reports, two men and two women from the Carpathian mountain region attacked Deitsch, 63, near the central train station in Zhitomir on the night of Oct. 6, or in the early hours of Oct. 7. They then fled the city with the rabbi’s cell phone and cash, leaving him bleeding and unconscious under a bridge near the station.

The suspects returned to the city a week after the attack and were identified and arrested by police two days ago.

The rabbi was discovered the morning after the attack and was admitted to the intensive care unit at a regional hospital, where he was diagnosed with multiple head injuries and brain trauma.

Deitsch underwent emergency surgery in Zhitomir while the victim’s family in Israel urgently worked with the Israeli government and emergency-services organizations in Jerusalem to arrange an airlift to Tel Hashomer hospital in Ramat Gan.

Deitsch has been active in strengthening Jewish life in the former Soviet Union for many years, and is a central organizer of hospitality and programming at the burial site of Chabad’s founder—Rabbi Schneur Zalman of Liadi, in Haditch, Ukraine, where Deitsch is believed to have spent Rosh Hashanah.

Arab Stone-Throwing Teen Boys Arrested in Jerusalem

Monday, October 17th, 2016

Jerusalem Police arrested 10 Arab boys, ages 10 to 17, in connection with stone-throwing attacks in the Old City of Jerusalem.

The boys were arrested Monday, the first day of the week-long Jewish festival of Sukkot, on suspicion of hurling the rocks from rooftops at people as they passed by, according to a police spokesperson. No injuries were reported.

Palestinian Authority terrorist organizations train children ages three and up each year at “summer camps” the various ways to attack and, they hope, to kill Jews and other Israelis.

Israel Police said that patrols in the area will continue, along with other measures designed to maintain security.

Thousands of people are expected to visit the Old City and the Western Wall, a 2,000-year-old remnant of the retaining wall of the Second Holy Temple of Jerusalem.

Rabbi Kahane’s Grandson Arrested Again

Monday, October 10th, 2016

Rabbi Kahane’s grandson, Meir Ettinger, was arrested at his home Monday morning for questioning, by detectives of the Judea and Samaria police, Honenu legal aid society reported.

According to the report, Ettinger is being interrogated over “an old affair” to which he denies any connection.

In early July, Ettinger was freed after 10 months of administrative detention. He had been arrested without trial, thrown into Eshel prison, and held in solitary confinement for those 10 months, after former Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon abused the anachronistic, anti-democratic administrative detention regulations left over from the British Mandate.

The question now is, will Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman sign new administrative detention orders against Ettinger, sending him back to prison without trial, or will the rightwing leader show more respect for democracy.
