Arabs Still Trying to Kill Israelis: Saturday Night List of Attacks

Sunday, April 17th, 2016

Arab terrorists are still busy trying to kill Israelis with stoning and firebomb attacks on the roads and in mixed Jerusalem neighborhoods. A brief review of the events on Saturday night shows the terror wave is not yet over, regardless of the statistical analyses coming out of the government offices.

Plain and simple, Israelis are not yet safe from Arab terrorists who are being egged on by the Palestinian Authority government.

Following is a brief roundup of terror attacks that took place around the country on Saturday night.

Stonings in Binyamin Region Arab attackers hit Bus No. 140 to Beit El on Highway 60 in Samaria, between the Jewish community of Adam and the Arab village of Hizme, north of Jerusalem.

No one on the bus was physically hurt, but the windshield on the bus was broken by one of the rocks.

A second Israeli bus, No. 143, also came under a hail of rocks hurled by Arab terrorists on the road. No one was physically hurt but the windshield of the bus was smashed.

On highway 437 in the Binyamin region, Arab terrorists hurled rocks at an Israeli bus traveling along Highway 437 in the Binyamin region, north of the Arab village of Hizmeh.

None of the passengers were physically injured. The windshield of the bus was damaged.

Motorist Firebombed Arab terrorists hurled a firebomb at an Israeli motorist traveling along Highway 55 near Bnei Elias, also on Saturday night.

No one was physically injured and no damage was reported.

Karmei Tzur Attack Foiled Three Arab terrorists from the nearby Judean village of Beit Omer approached the security fence of the Jewish community of Karmei Tzur in Gush Etzion on Saturday evening.

The terrorists hurled a firebomb into the community through the fence, before fleeing when security personnel arrived. The firebomb landed harmlessly. No one was physically injured and no damage was reported.

Jewish Homes Attacked in Ma’ale Zeitim Arabs hurled firebombs at Jewish homes in the Jerusalem neighborhood of Ma’ale Zeitim on Saturday night in the eastern section of the capital.

Beit Horon Terror Stabbing Victim Shlomit Krigman, HY’D, Laid to Rest

Tuesday, January 26th, 2016

Hundreds of mourners gathered to support friends and family of Shlomit Krigman, hy’d, as they paid their final respects Tuesday before she was laid to rest at the Har HaMenuchot cemetery in Jerusalem. “She was a very special person,” said one.

The young woman — only 23 years old — lived in Shadmot Mehola in the Jordan Valley, but was staying in Beit Horon, located between Modi’in and Jerusalem along Highway 443, at the time of the attack.

“Shlomit was loved and known to all,” said the Beit Horon settlement administration in a statement. “She served as a Bnei Akivah youth group coordinator during her National Service. During the past year she lived with her grandparents in the settlement of Beit Horon.”

She was stabbed outside a grocery store late Monday afternoon by two Arab terrorists from the Palestinian Authority. Critically injured, she succumbed to her wounds on Tuesday morning at Hadassah Medical Center’s Mount Scopus campus.

A second Israeli woman, age 58, was also stabbed in the same attack. She is in stable condition with moderate wounds at Jerusalem’s Shaare Zedek Medical Center.

When the terrorists tried to enter the store to continue their stabbing spree, two Jewish workers pushed them back with a shopping cart, forcing them to run.

At that point, both attackers were shot and killed by a security guard. Forces who were searching the area found three IEDs (improvised explosive devices) they had planted around the store. Sappers were summoned to the site defuse the bombs.

The two terrorists, Ibrahim Ala’an, 22, from nearby Beit Ur al-Tahta; and Hussein Abu Ghosh, 17, from Qalandiya, a Hamas operative; reached the store via a nearby wadi. They jumped the fence surrounding the community, store worker Motti Shalem told Ynet.

“These difficult times are fraught with confrontation and we will overcome. We will continue to fight against terrorism and the incitement which drives it. In the face of terror, we choose life,” President Reuven Rivlin said in the wake of the attack.

On Monday night, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu ordered the IDF to prepare an upgraded comprehensive security plan for the Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria.

Immediately following the stabbing at Beit Horon, the IDF froze the work permits of the family members of the two terrorists and a series of other security measures. Roadblocks were set up on all access routes to Beit Ur al-Tahta, allowing only humanitarian cases in or out, according to an IDF spokesperson.

Shiloh’s Children Hard at Work Baking Matzohs

Wednesday, April 9th, 2014

Even as their parents are scrubbing and fixing and rearranging their homes in time for Passover, children in the Jewish community of Shiloh are working as well – making matzohs.

The community, located in the Binyamin region near Samaria, has a 20-year tradition of allowing its children the privilege of baking matzohs just before the Passover holiday.

During the process the children learn the special laws of the holiday while enjoying the practical aspects of preparing matzohs.

The original ancient city of Shiloh, mentioned in the Hebrew Bible, is situated at the modern Khirbet Seilun, south of Tirzah, 10 miles north of the Jewish community of Beit El in Samaria (Shomron).

Shiloh was the official capital of the ancient nation of Israel before the First Holy Temple was built in Jerusalem. It was located north of Beit El and is mentioned in the Book of Joshua and in Judges.
