Arab Terrorist Shot Near Rachel’s Tomb in Bethlehem

Wednesday, September 2nd, 2015

At around 9 PM, Border Police in the Bethlehem neighborhood of El Ayaadah, which is adjacent to Rachel’s Tomb but on the other side of the wall, shot and wounded an Arab teenager who was about to throw a bomb at them, according to the police spokesperson.

The terrorist was shot in the lower extremities before he could throw his pipe bomb. The terrorist was treated on site, and then transported to Hadassah Ein Karem hospital.

The bomb was neutralized by Border Police sappers.

No one else was injured in the attack.

As expected, the residents of El Ayaadah began rioting and throwing stones, and police used anti-riot gear to disperse them.

PA Media: Two Opposite Statements for Two People

Thursday, August 6th, 2015

The Palestinian Authority’s most widely-quoted English news site reported that today’s hit-and-attack on three Israeli soldiers was a “suspected car attack” but in its Arabic version, it was described as a car accident.”

The Obama administration, the United Nations and foreign media in general for years have ignored numerous reports of “two statements for two people,” particularly when it comes to denouncing terror in English for the State Dept. to read while encouraging terror in Arabic for its future martyrs to read.

By all accounts, the Palestinian Authority driver intentionally rammed into the soldiers in Samaria, leaving one in a life-threatening condition. A second soldier suffered very critical injuries, and the third is in good condition with light injuries.

Ma’an reported in English:

Israeli forces shot and injured a Palestinian man on Thursday after a suspected car attack which injured two Israeli soldiers, a Ma’an reporter said.

The man allegedly ran over two Israeli soldiers on Route 60 near the illegal settlement of Shilo, north of Ramallah, with Israeli forces shooting the suspect at the scene.

And for the Arabic version of Ma’an, it wrote, according to a translation by Google:

[They] were injured on Thursday described as serious injuries in a car accident.

The Palestinian Authority official WAFA website did not mention the attack – or accident – at all.

Unlike the Ramallah regime, Hamas was up front. It said the attack was “a natural” response to the occupation.

Does anyone in the Obama administration read Arabic or know how to use Google Translate?

Vatican Signs Treaty with ‘State of Palestine’ Proving Pope to be Fallible

Friday, June 26th, 2015

The Vatican signed a treaty with the “State of Palestine” on Friday.

It’s the first time the Pope used the phrase “State of Palestine” in an official document, proving once and for all that the Pope is completely fallible in his official capacity.

The treaty deals with aspects of life and activities of the Catholic Church in “Palestine.” It also recognizes PA control over eastern Jerusalem. (Huh?)

The PA’s signing an international treaty is a breach of the Oslo accords, which shows how much you can rely on any treaty the PA signs.

The Israeli Foreign Ministry expressed its regret at the Vatican’s decision.

Under Palestinian Authority rule, the number of Christians in PA controlled areas has dropped to less than 2% of the population. In Bethlehem, the number of Christians has dropped to below 20%, where once they made up 80% of the city.

According to the Vatican, the percentage of Christians in the PA has halved since the year 2000.

Many Christians have run away from the Palestinian Authority to pre-67 Israel, where they don’t face PA and Muslim persecution.

At most there are 50,000 Christians in Judea and Samaria and a mere 3000 remaining in Gaza.

The PA hides any official and accurate statistics.

Perhaps the Pope is concerned for the day when all the Christians run away from the “State of Palestine”, and then no one will be there to protect Christian holy sites, except this treaty.

Of course, if the Pope believes a treaty with the PA will protect Christians, he has a thing to learn about the PA and their keeping treaties.

On a related note, Khaled Abu Toameh reports that ISIS has vowed to expel Arab Christians from east Jerusalem by the end of Ramadan.

Jerusalem Arabs Clash with Police in Old City after Jew Stabbed

Sunday, June 21st, 2015

A terrorist stabbed one person near Damascus Gate in the Old City of Jerusalem Saturday night, and other terrorists threw a firebomb at a bus near Nevi Yaakov in northern Jerusalem and a pipe bomb at Rachel’s Tomb.

Police clashed with rioters after the stabbing, according to Israel News Feed. Arabs hurled rocks at cars, wounding at least one person, and police carried out one arrest as of midnight Saturday.

The condition of the stabbing victim is not known, but he is believed not to have suffered serous wounds.

There are no known injuries in the firebombing of the bus and from the pipe bomb that was thrown towards Jews visting Rachel’s Tomb (Kever Rachel) near Bethlehem.

In Judea and Samaria, Palestinian Authority terrorists hurled rocks at passing Jewish motorists near Dolev and in the same region where one or more terrorists murdered Daniel Gonen and wounded a companion while they were hiking. Gonen was buried in his home city of Lod, near Ben Gurion Airport, Saturday night.

The terrorist fled on foot but is believed to have been whisked away from the area in a car, leading police and the IDF to believe he did not act alone.

They also estimate that the attack was planned and was not a spur of the minute attack.

Palestinian Authority terrorists usually are more motivated during the Muslim month of Ramadan, which began Thursday. They have an added incentive because this month is the anniversary of the kidnap-murders of three yeshiva youth, whose attackers were located and killed in a shoot-out with the IDF last September.

Freedom of Worship on Temple Mount: Gazan Arabs, 190; Jews, 0

Sunday, June 7th, 2015

The score was 190-0 for freedom of worship for Arabs from Gaza and zero for Jews on Friday.

Israel allowed nearly 200 Gazans, all over the age of 60, to pray at the mosque on the Temple Mount, eight months after 500 Arabs from Gaza prayed there for the first time since 2007, according to the Ma’an News Agency, based in Bethlehem.

The last time Israel allowed Jews to pray regularly at the Temple Mount was nearly 2,000 years ago, during the time of the Second Temple, which a growing number of Muslim clerics like to pretend never existed.

Permission for Arabs from Gaza to travel to Jerusalem and pray at the Al Aqsa mosque is part of the last year’s ceasefire between Hamas and Israel that was supposed to end the most recent barrage of missile attacks on Israel.

Hamas again broke the ceasefire on Saturday with rocket launches against Israel but blamed them on rival terrorist groups.

Israel continues to honor its end of the ceasefire and allows Gazans to pray at the Temple Mount mosque, where Hamas banners and even Islamic State (ISIS) banners frequently fly amid sermons that preach jihad against Jews, all in the name of freedom of worship, if you are not Jewish.

Bethlehem May Charge a Fee for Tourists to Enter

Sunday, May 3rd, 2015

Bethlehem wants every tourist entering the city to pay approximately, the Bethlehem-based Ma’an News Agency reported.

Ramallah also is considering a tourist fee.

Deputy Mayor of Bethlehem Issam Juha told Ma’an, “Tourists have so far been receiving services for free, and now we are considering a mechanism to make them pay a fee which would help us improve public services, including wireless internet, maps and tour signs.

Tourism expert Dr. Hamdan Taha warned that a fee could boomerang, according to Ma’an, because it night drive tourists away.
