Drive-by Shooting Attack Near Neve Tzuf

Wednesday, December 14th, 2016

An Israeli woman and her two children narrowly escaped death on the Cross-Binyamin Highway early Wednesday evening when their car came under a hail of gunfire while driving between the villages of Abud and Deir Abu Masha’al.

Residents of Neve Tzuf (Halamish), a community east of Shoham, the 27-year-old woman was driving towards home with her 4-year-old daughter and her 18-month-old baby son in the car at the time of the attack.

The vehicle was heading northwest in the direction of Ramallah when she felt the car get hit by what she first believed was a hail of stones.

The driver kept the car moving and called police, who immediately responded. Upon inspection of the vehicle, the officers saw three bullet holes around the area of the motor, and one more bullet hole in the car door.

Miraculously, none of the passengers in the vehicle were physically injured.

Security forces launched a search for the attackers.

ThyssenKrupp AG, Maker of Israeli Submarines, Suffered ‘Massive’ Cyber Attack

Thursday, December 8th, 2016

ThyssenKrupp, one of Germany’s largest companies, announced it has been the target of a large-scale, sophisticated cyber attack. According to German business magazine Wirtschafts Woche, Martin Hölz, Chief Information Officer at ThyssenKrupp, stated the attack had originated in south-east Asia and resulted in the theft of company secrets.

“ThyssenKrupp has become the target of a massive cyber attack,” the industrial giant said in a statement.

ThyssenKrupp AG is based in Duisburg and Essen, Germany. The enormous corporation owns 670 companies worldwide. It is one of the world’s largest steel makers, but also provides components and systems for the automotive industry, elevators, escalators, material trading and industrial service.

In 2006 Israel signed a contract with ThyssenKrupp to purchase two additional submarines from its HDW subsidiary. In late 2016 reports emerged of negotiations for the purchase of three additional ThyssenKrupp built submarines.

The hacker managed to steal data from two business units at ThyssenKrupp before the attack was noticed and stopped. ThyssenKrupp has reported the attack to the state of North Rhine-Westphalia, but the chances of bringing the hackers to justice are negligible.

ThyssenKrupp’s revelation came a week after the attack which hit a million routers, resulting in outages for Deutsche Telekom customers.

According to Wirtschafts Woche, the attacks hit Europe, India, Argentina and the United States in sites operated by ThyssenKrupp’s Industrial Solutions division, which builds large production plants.

The Hagen Hohenlimburg specialty steel mill in western Germany was also targeted.

Jewish Students Accuse Cambridge of Brushing Anti-Semitic Attack Under the Carpet

Sunday, November 27th, 2016

Three Jewish students at Cambridge University walked into the school’s Graduate Union building, to find it was full of members from the sports societies from Christ’s College, who had rented out the bar area, according to a report in The Telegraph.

After walking in, the three Jewish men saw it was a closed party and tried to walk out, but were accosted by the mob, who, after noticing their Kippot, began cursing and violently beating them.

At least seven people took part in the beating.

Shlomo Roiter-Jesner described to The Telegraph what was yelled at them,

“We, and other bystanders, heard a number of vicious anti-Semitic slurs including ‘f—— Jew, you don’t belong here’, ‘dirty Jew’ and to myself, ‘f— off, darkie’.

The college reports that two students were disciplined though the two denied initiating the violence or using anti-Semitic language, only foul language.

There was an audio-less CCTV recording of the attack.

The Jewish students are accusing the college of covering up the attack and failing to investigate it properly.

Professor Jane Stapleton, master of Christ’s College, told the Telegraph, “I reject categorically that Christ’s has engaged in a cover-up on this matter.”

Tucson Muslim Gets 8 Years for Planning to Attack Jewish Center

Saturday, November 5th, 2016

Mahin Khan, 18, of Tucson, Arizona, was sentenced on Friday to eight years in prison after pleading guilty to terrorism, conspiracy to commit terrorism, and conspiracy to commit misconduct involving weapons.

The prosecution said Khan had “expressed a desire” to attack a Jewish community center in Tucson. Police found a document in his home with plans to attack a military recruiting center and a fitness center. He also plotted to attack the Phoenix DMV, and instructed an undercover FBI agent on making homemade grenades.

Khan apparently received his inspiration from last year’s ISIS attacks in Paris and Brussels, and communicated online with a a member of the Islamic State.

The prosecutor said Khan was not being accused of just words but also of teaching bomb-making to the undercover FBI agent. “There has to be a consequence, a price to be paid,” she said.

Khan’s attorney told the court his client is struggling with mental health issues and poor impulse control. Khan accepted responsibility for his pots. Apparently, Khan has been known to the FBI since age 15. He also spent 45 days in a mental institution.
