Jerusalem Light Rail Targeted by Arab Attackers

Wednesday, June 1st, 2016

Arab terrorists attacked the Jerusalem Light Rail in the evening on Tuesday.

The attackers hurled large rocks at the train as it passed through the northern Jerusalem neighborhood of Shuafat.

None of the passengers were physically injured but at least one of the windows in a car on the train was smashed, requiring the train to be taken out of service.

The train is often attacked by Arabs in northern Jerusalem, costing the CityPass company that owns the rail line hundreds of thousands of shekels each year in repairs.

Update: Rocket Siren in Southern Israel ‘False Alarm’

Wednesday, May 18th, 2016

Residents of southern Israel were sent running to shelters Wednesday night when they heard the Red Alert air raid siren warning them of an incoming rocket attack in Gaza Belt region communities.

However, Israeli defense officials notified media within the hour that apparently the sirens that activated in numerous Gaza border communities had been triggered by mistake, and the alert was a “false alarm.”

Reportedly there were sounds of explosions on the other side of Israel’s southern border in the northern Sinai Peninsula, but it is not clear whether the two incidents were related.

Three Israeli Arabs Indicted for Planning Terror Attack at Damascus Gate in Jerusalem

Wednesday, May 11th, 2016

By Michael Bachner/TPS

Haifa (TPS) – Three Israeli-Arabs are charged with planning stabbing attacks against Israelis in Jerusalem, according to two separate indictments filed on Wednesday in the Haifa District Court.

The three defendants are Ali Subh, Ibrahim Shami, and Mehdi Basal from the village of Jadeidi-Makr in the Galilee. Subh and Shami are charged with attempted murder, conspiring to commit a murder, and arms dealing offenses. The second indictment charges Basal with arms dealing as well as illegally purchasing and possessing a weapon.

According to the first indictment, Subh and Shami made their way to Jerusalem with knives, inspired by the wave of terror attacks in Israel. They intended to commit a stabbing attack at the Damascus Gate of the Old City, where many previous attacks took place. They did not carry out the attack, choosing instead to seek out firearms in order to cause greater damage.

On another occasion, Shami drove to Jerusalem with a knife given to him by Subh, who encouraged him to stab Israelis. The attack was stopped in circumstances not detailed in the indictment.

The two also planned several shooting attacks, and Shami even tried to find out the cost of weapons needed to carry out an attack.

The case was investigated by the Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet), and the indictments were filed by the Haifa district attorney along with requests to detain all three until the end of court proceedings against them.

Islamist Killer Yelled ‘Allahu Akbar!’ in Attack Near Munich

Tuesday, May 10th, 2016

A 50-year-old Wasserburg man was murdered and three others wounded, one seriously, after being stabbed at around 5 am local time Tuesday at a railway station in the suburb of Grafing, 25 miles southeast of central Munich.

Witnesses allege the attacker yelled “Allahu Akbar!” (God is Great! in Arabic) during the incident, the Süddeutsche Zeitung reported.

The 27-year-old suspected attacker captured and arrested by German police shortly after “made remarks at the scene of the crime that indicate a political motive — apparently an Islamist motive,” said a spokesperson for the Bavarian prosecutors’ office who was quoted by The Guardian.

“We are still determining what the exact remarks were,” the spokesperson added. The railway station was cordoned off, leading to restrictions on the Munich S-Bahn rail network.

Germany is participating in the U.S.-led coalition fight against Da’esh (ISIS), which has methodically set about attacking targets in every country participating in the coalition air strikes against its bases in Syria.

NYC Council Jewish Caucus Condemns Terrorist Attack in Jerusalem

Tuesday, April 19th, 2016

“Brussels, Istanbul, Lahore–and now Jerusalem must tragically be added to the long list of cities brutalized by terror in recent weeks. Our hearts go out to the bus bombing’s victims and their families, and to all Israelis, at this difficult moment. There is simply no moral or political justification for this act of savagery. Hamas’ statement that it “welcomes the Jerusalem operation” proves beyond a shadow of a doubt the barbaric values of those who seek Israel’s destruction. We proudly stand with the Israeli people in their ongoing struggle against terror.”
