Arab Terrorists Who Attacked IDF Post in August Arrested

Monday, October 12th, 2015

(JNi.media) On August 19, the IDF, Shin Bet and Israeli police arrested three assailants for hurling an Improvised explosive device (IED) at the “Panorama” Army post near Beit Jala and the Israeli community of Har Gilo. One soldier was moderately injured as a result of the attack. The IDF spokesperson’s office today released this information.

One perpetrator, Asad Ibrahim Salah Asad, 18, is a resident of the Aida refugee camp, near Bethlehem. Two minors, also residents of the refugee camp, were arrested as well.

During their investigation, the perpetrators confessed to committing the attack. They also admitted to participating in additional terror activities, including manufacturing and hurling IEDs. The findings of the investigation have been submitted to the Military Prosecutor in Judea, in order to issue indictments against the three perpetrators.

PA Hides Islamic Arson of Church with ‘Electrical Failure’

Wednesday, October 7th, 2015

This is a “price tag” attack that international media don’t want to report – because it was perpetrated by Arab Muslims and not by Jews.

There now is proof that the Palestinian Authority was lying through its teeth when it claimed that the last September fire at the St. Charbel Monastery in Bethlehem was caused by an “electrical failure.”

The blaze was reported here by the Jewish Press.com.

Contrary to the claim of the Palestinian Authority, an electrical failure was not the cause of the fire for the simple reason that since the building was without electricity due to renovations.

Bishop Moussa El-Haj said that there was a break-in at the monastery two days before the fire and that items were stolen. There also was a fire in the oldest room of the monastery, where furniture was burned.

He told a Christian Arab website:

There is no electricity in the monastery because or repairs and restoration. This fire was deliberately set.

The biggest question that the Palestinian Authority lie raises is why does Pope Francis so enthusiastic about the Ramallah regime and Mahmoud Abbas, who touts freedom of worship while not only trying to prevent Jews from visiting, let along praying, on the Temple Mount but also covers up radical Islamic arson of a church?

Another question is: Why do foreign and most Israeli media go off the deep end when Jews burn a church but keep silent when Muslims do the same?

The answer is that Jews are not supposed to do these type of things, but it is accepted that Muslims do.

It is correct that Jews, the Chosen People, should not commit such acts, but why is it considered acceptable practice when Muslims do so?

Abbas’ Adviser Urges More Attacks 2 Days after Abbas Renounces Terror

Friday, October 2nd, 2015

Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas’ adviser on NGOs, Gen Sultan Abu Al-Einen, called for more attacks as Fatah claimed responsibility for yesterday’s attack, Ofir Gendelman, Israeli government spokesman for Arabic media, tweeted on Friday.

The Palestinian Authority has been totally silent since Thursday’s murder of an Israeli couple in Samaria while its ruling Fatah party took responsibility for the terrorist attack that orphaned four small children.

Abbas told the United Nations in his speech Wednesday:

The PLO and the Palestinian people adhere to the renouncement of violence and rejection and condemning of terrorism in all its forms, especially State terrorism, and adhere to all agreements signed between the Palestine Liberation Organization and Israel.

Not only have the PLO and Abbas not condemned the drive-by murder, but Fatah official Azzam al-Ahmed also told Hamas’ Al Quds TV:

The attack is a natural response to the crimes of the settlers and every action has a reaction.

The Martyr Abdul-Qader al-Husseini Brigades, associated with Fatah’s Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades said it carried out the “heroic operation.”

WAFA, the official Palestinian Authority website, did not mention the murders and instead drowned its readers with the usual daily reports of alleged IDF violence against Arabs.

The Ma’an News Agency, based in Bethlehem and considered close to the Palestinian Authority regime, reported the killings but implicitly supported remarks by the Fatah officials that they were a “natural response.” Ma’an told its readers:

Tensions between Israeli settlers and Palestinians have been running high in recent weeks, as right-wing groups have increasingly urged their supporters to visit the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound in East Jerusalem, which has sparked clashes and spurred political debates around what Palestinians see as a challenge to the status quo in Israeli policies concerning the holy site.

Israeli authorities imposed severe restrictions on Palestinian entry to the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound for the fourth day in a row on Wednesday, while Israelis entered the compound under armed police escort.

According to the Palestinian Authority narrative, Arab rage is a result of Israeli actions.

After the murder, maiming and wounding of thousands of Israelis by Palestinian Authority terrorists the world no longer is buying the Arab agenda.

It is not falling in love with Israel but, as indicated by the absence of the words “Palestine” and “Israel” in President Barack Obama’s speech at the United Nations this week, the international community has run out of energy trying to make believe that the problems in the Middle East start and end with the “occupation,” if they exist at all.

ISIS, the Muslim immigration invasion of Europe, and the Syrian war have eroded the world’s illusions that the Palestinian Authority really wants “two states,” unless one is Fatah and the other Hamas with both of them killing each other in a war to see who can try to annihilate the State of Israel.

Arabs Burn Bethlehem Church

Sunday, September 27th, 2015

Shootout as Abbas Forces Are Pushed Back by Demonstrators in Bethlehem

Monday, September 21st, 2015

(JNi.media) On Sunday night in Bethlehem, Arab demonstrators united in protest against Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas. They called for his immediate resignation following the cooperation of security forces at his command with Israel, and the arrests they collaborate in carrying out, against the backdrop of the Al-Aqsa Mosque riots.

According to NRG, the security coordination between Israel and the Palestinian Authority, which has recently resulted in a wave of arrests carried out by the Palestinian security services, are infuriating the Palestinians, who carry the social protests against Abbas from the social networks to the streets.

Ma’an described the event as a march that was called to protest an excessive use of force by PA forces last week.

Sunday night’s demonstration began at the Deheishe refugee camp just south of Bethlehem, when protesters gathered in front of the Palestinian intelligence building, shouting and throwing rocks. After a few minutes, several police officers came out to disperse the demonstration, and one of them fired live rounds of ammunition at the demonstrators. After the demonstrators failed to disperse, a large force of Palestinian police left the building and began making arrests.

In response to the live shooting, armed Arab gunmen affiliated with the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades came out of the Deheishe camp, and entered a shootout with the security forces. They issued a statement saying “the security forces of Abbas use weapons against the Palestinian people; whomever uses weapons against us is the enemy and we will respond against him with war.”

The clashes during the night at Deheishe followed exchanges of gunfire in the Balata refugee camp in Shechem and the Jenin refugee camp. The protest is focused against the aging Chairman of the Authority, who is now identified as a “traitor against the Palestinian people.”

A high-ranking Fatah official, who wished to remain anonymous, told Ma’an: “We agreed with factions and powers not to participate in these marches where some people chanted against the president.”

Referring to violence from protesters, the anonymous source blamed Israel: “We think there are sides like Israel who might want to plant disturbances and benefit from them.

Netanyahu Pledges to Beef Up Security at Patriarchs’ Cave in Hebron

Sunday, September 6th, 2015

Israel will do its “utmost so that Jews will be able to go everywhere safely, especially to the Tomb of the Patriarchs,” Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu told the Cabinet Sunday.

Tens of thousands of Jews visit the site, known, in Hebrew as Ma’arat HaMachpelah, for Slichot prayers between Rosh HaShanah and Yom Kippur.

It is the burial site of the forefathers Avraham, Isaac (Yitzchak) and Jacob as well as Sarah, Rebecca (Rivkah) and Leah. Rachel, Yaakov’s second wife, is buried at Rachel’s Tomb (Kever Rachel), which also attracts tens of thousands of people between the two High Holidays.

The Patriarch’s Cave also is the traditional burial place of Adam and Eve.

Palestinian Authority terrorists have escalated attacks at the two sites in recent months.
