IDF Soldiers Targeted in Escalating Jerusalem Attacks

Thursday, March 27th, 2014

Arabs opened fire with a blaze of bullets aimed at security personnel at a guard post just outside of Jerusalem this morning (Thursday).

The attack occurred at a checkpoint on Highway 60 north of the capital staffed by Border Police personnel at the entrance to Kalandia.

Several bullets managed to reach their target, hitting the building where security personnel were taking cover. The guard post was damaged but no one was injured, according to the IDF spokesperson who said 29 bullet casings were recovered at the source of the gunfire.

A full M-16 or AK-47 magazine clip typically holds 29 bullets. PA police are armed with AK-47 weapons.

The incident raises new questions about growing Arab violence around the country, and threats of a new intifada aimed at Israelis.

A cartoon posted on Facebook March 11th by the Fatah Mobilization and Organization Commission and translated by the Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) watchdog group called for the return to armed struggle. Fatah is led by PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas. Less than a week later, a member of the faction’s central committee declared on official PA TV, “A national enterprise cannot succeed without the National Liberation Movement, Fatah. We in this movement have not cast down the rifle and have not let go of the rifle. The rifle is here!”

Just one day earlier (Wednesday) Palestinian Authority youths in Bethlehem set fire to an IDF watchtower, according to the Bethlehem-based Ma’an news agency. Photos of the incident were allegedly posted on the Facebook page of the Aida “refugee camp.”

Quoting an IDF spokesperson, the news agency reported “20 Palestinians hurling rocks and they also rolled a burning tire” at nearby Aida, a so-called “refugee camp” but was unaware of arson at the watchtower.

An alleged incident involving an IDF soldier who claimed he was stabbed by a group of PA Arabs in Pisgat Ze’ev on Thursday morning was later found to be a false report. The soldier later confessed to police the attack had never taken place.

EU Diplomat Hits Border Policeman, Ends Up On Floor

Saturday, September 21st, 2013

Based on content from: IDF Blog.

Yesterday, following an illegal attempt by Palestinian Authority Arabs and foreign activists to erect an illegal outpost in Samaria’s Hemdat area, in the northern Jordan Valley, security personnel responded to the site with the intent to implement a standing Supreme Court decision.

At the site, Arabs and foreign activists violently responded, throwing stones and striking Israeli security forces. The security personnel contained the violence with riot dispersal means, seized the tents and detained three Palestinian Authority Arabs who were the main instigators.

Reports that foreign diplomats abused their diplomatic privileges are currently being reviewed and, if required, complaints will be filed with the relevant authorities.

Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesperson, Paul Hirschson, said a formal complaint might be filed with the French over the involvement of French diplomat, Marion Castaing. “If she did participate then a formal complaint will be filed because that is not the way diplomats behave,” he said.

Marion-Castaing1

This is what is being shown in the mainstream media: French diplomat Marion Castaing on the floor, with some media outlets questioning about the guns supposedly pointed at her by an Israeli police officer.

But this picture is being shown out of context, and the status of the gun supposedly pointed at her, purposefully misrepresented.

This is what the media fails to show:

The photo used to spread this misinformation was taken as a screenshot from a video with footage clearly showing that Marion Castaing was neither physically dragged to the floor nor had guns pointed at her. Also, the photo clearly shows that the officer is holding his gun by the magazine, nowhere near the rifle’s grip.

Many photos and videos have been manipulated to show Israel in a negative light. This is just another example of the length to which people will go to spread lies as part of the propaganda war against Israel.

Below is the edited “news” report, as reported by Iran’s state controlled TV.

Undercover Police Entangled in Refugee Camp, Killing Three Arabs

Monday, August 26th, 2013

A Border Police unit shot dead three Palestinians early Monday morning during an attempt to arrest suspects in the Qalandiya refugee camp in northern Jerusalem. 11 Arabs were lightly injured from gunfire, in addition to the three dead: Robin al-Abd, 28, Jihad al-Aslan, 20, and Jonas Jachjuch, 19. the Palestinian Authority condemned the killing.

The unit of undercover officers from the Judea and Samaria Border Police, entered the Qalandiya refugee camp before dawn Monday, and their activity there generated violent disturbances and severe clashes between locals and members of the police unit. Dozens of young locals came out of their homes and began hurling stones at the unit, until the gravely outnumbered force was forced to resort to live fire.

Police testimony shows that after the undercover unit had been exposed, the open confrontation with dozens of angry locals posed real and present danger to their lives. An initial investigation revealed that the officers used riot dispersal means, including the Roger rifle, which fires ammunition at lower and thus less dangerous speeds. A security official told Walla: “We are familiar with the report about deaths and the issue is under review.”

It appears that, despite calming messages from the IDF about how the rate of violence on the part of Judea and Samaria Arabs is going down, a third Intifada is still brewing. Last week, a Palestinian civilian was shot dead and two others were seriously injured, while two IDF soldiers were lightly injured during an arrest operation in the Jenin refugee camp.

The Haredi IDF battalion Netach Yehuda and Border Police arrived in Jenin to execute arrest warrants against Palestinian residents. The arrest attempt, much like this morning’s scenario, developed into mass disturbances against the two forces, as dozens of Arabs began throwing stones, grenades and improvised explosive devices at the two forces.

Open Season on Jews in the Jewish State

Thursday, June 20th, 2013

The coverage of Tuesday’s mob attack in Jerusalem noted a forty-minute response time from the police. Something sounded familiar when I read that.

After a little digging, I found it: an interview Arutz Sheva’s Tamar Yonah did last September with a resident of Aish Kodesh in the Shomron following a mob attack incited by mosque speakers. Here’s the relevant exchange:

“I heard that it took an hour-and-a-half for the IDF to arrive at the scene. Is that true?”

“Yeah, about. That’s usually what it takes.”

A further similarity between these attacks was the victims’ fear of prosecution if they defended themselves. One of the people attacked by the mob in Jerusalem said:

“…we preferred to flee rather than shoot, because we were afraid of the police. In an event two weeks ago, a security guard fired a shot in the air and he’s facing all sorts of legal complications. My buddy knew that if he shoots, he’d lose five years of his life and go to jail.”

The Aish Kodesh resident likewise explained:

“We probably have enough bullets to take care of it, but that’s probably more the scary part.

We’re probably more scared to shoot someone and kill someone than we are to get hurt ourselves… All we need is one bullet to hit one person, and the whole incident is over. Everybody turns around and runs away, and we’re fine. But then that person is basically taking it upon himself to go to jail, because the way it works here in Israel it’s kind of like you’re guilty until proven innocent—especially if you killed an Arab—and everybody knows that…And the Arabs kind of know the bluff already. They know that we’re not going to shoot them.”

Lest these fears be thought unfounded, Border Police raided Aish Kodesh in April and seized weapons after another attack. Weapons seizures have been occurring for some time in these communities.

Meanwhile, Jews continue to be arrested for praying at the holiest site in Judaism as Jews elsewhere in Jerusalem live in nightmarish conditions. Our enemies see all of these signals and act accordingly.

Arab Terrorist Gets Out of Prison, Murders Israeli in the Shomron

Tuesday, April 30th, 2013

At Tapuach junction (Samaria / Shomron), connecting traffic from Jerusalem, Ariel and Tel Aviv, an Arab terrorist, on Tuesday morning, stabbed and killed an Israeli man (32), grabbed his gun and started shooting at the nearby IDF Border Police. The victim was Evyatar Borovsky a resident of Yitzhar, and actor, and the father of 5 children.

The IDF Border Police unit shot back hitting the terrorist in the leg. The terrorist was transported to Beilinson (Rabin) hospital.

It is not clear why they shot the terrorist in the leg, and not the head.

The Fatah terrorist had been released from Israeli prison just 6 months ago, after serving 3 years for another terror attack involving planting a bomb.

The terrorist’s brother is in a Palestinian Authority prison for allegedly collaborating with Israel.

The nearby strategic checkpoint, a mere 30 meters north of where the terror attack took place, that protected the area was removed a few months ago, under orders of former Defense Minister Ehud Barak, due to pressure from the radical-leftwing NGO Machsom Watch.

Last night, two terrorists were caught at the same location carrying a firebombs and knives, as reported by HaKol HaYehudi.

There have been 4 terror attempts at this junction in the past month alone.

Deputy Minister Tzipi Hotoveli (LIkud) said, “The terror attack in the Shomron is a direct result of the incitement coming from the heart of the [Palestinian] Authority against Israel and the Jewish people, and the responsibility falls on the [Palestinian] Authority and those that stand at its head”.

Rabbi Chaim Goldberg, the Rosh Yeshiva of a Kedumim High School, told the Tazpit News Agency that as he approached the Tapuach Junction he noticed there was mayhem: “I saw three young women jump into the street. I then heard shots fired. I noticed a person who was lying on the ground get up with a gun in his hand. I slowed down and ducked so he wouldn’t see me. I then called the emergency center to notify them about the incident. I now understand that the terrorist nabbed the gun from the Jew he murdered and I was the first target he saw.”

Several bullets hit his vehicle, but he was not injured.

Evyatar Borovsky’s funeral will begin at 5:30 PM in Kfar Chassidim.
