Live TV Reporter Caught Red-Handed Lying About Israelis Shooting Unarmed Arab [video]

Friday, October 16th, 2015

For the second time in less than one week there was violence at the Damascus Gate on Wednesday in Jerusalem. This time, like many others recently, was captured on video or the rampaging terrorist with a weapon would surely have been described as an innocent young man, shot down in cold blood. More on this, below.

The first attack took place on Saturday, Oct. 10. A 19 year old Arab resident of Jerusalem stabbed two members of Israel’s border police. The stabber was neutralized at the scene as he continued attempting to stab other officers.

The second incident took place late afternoon on Wednesday, Oct. 14. A Palestinian Arab male, later identified as Basel Sider, 19, was observed acting suspiciously. The man was wearing a camouflage t-shirt and pants. When Israeli officers approached him, he lunged at them and broke through the Damascus Gate checkpoint line. Israeli police repeatedly shouted for him to halt. As the Arab continued running with what appeared and was later confirmed to be a knife blade in his right hand, he was shot dead by Israeli officers on the scene.

Had there been no video, the Israeli officers who shot the terrorist would have been labeled murderers and executioners. Acting Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas has been only the most prominent individual to have made such horrific claims, paying no heed to the facts, recently denouncing the shooting deaths of rampaging terrorists as “field executions.”

In Wednesday’s incident, the only thing that was immediately known was that a young Arab man was shot dead by Israelis.

An MSNBC journalist was on the scene when the incident took place. Of course, as with athletic referees before the time of videotape, eyewitnesses are not always accurate in their observations. That is surely particularly so when an eyewitness may have a particular bias. This journalist was removed from Gaza for sloppy reporting during the summer 2014 conflict in Gaza.

What that MSNBC reporter, Ayman Moyheldin, tweeted out on Wednesday was, “I just witnessed the shooting of man running down the stairs towards Damascus gate before being gunned down.” Twenty-five minutes later, he tweeted again, this time writing that just at he was about to broadcast live “Israeli security opened fire on a Palestinian man dressed in camouflage. Killed instantly.”

The MSNBC eyewitness journalist filed a live report to his anchor. According to the report by Mohyeldin, the Arab man was not dressed in camouflage and he had no knife in his hands. The reporter also said that there were no injured Israelis on the scene, the Israelis removed the Arab’s clothes, probably in search of a bomb, and there was none on his body. Moyheldin assured his viewers that the Arab man “did not look to me to be particularly armed.”

In other words, according to “eyewitness” Mohyeldin, Israelis had just shot to death an innocent man.

But Mohyeldin’s anchor in the studio had already seen the video taken by Mohyeldin’s cameramen.

As Jeff Dunetz at The Lid explained, José Diaz Balart interrupted Mohyeldin on-air, and explained to the reporter and the audience that Mohyeldin’s version of events did not track the facts revealed on the videotape.

Diaz Balart then showed a screen capture from the video, which clearly shows the Arab man wearing camouflage shirt and pants, and holding a knife in his right hand.

Knife held by terrorist at Damascus Gate on Wed., Oct. 15, 2015.

Moyheldin attempted a few more times to rectify himself, but Diaz Balart stopped him cold. In fact, the news show host reprimanded the field reporter, explaining that it was always essential to provide a full context for any incident being reported.

Yeah, what he said.

Policeman in Life-Threatening Condition after Stabbing by Jerusalem Arab

Saturday, October 10th, 2015

One police officer is in life-threatening condition in Jerusalem’s Shaarei Tzedek Hospital after having been stabbed by an Arab terrorist near Damascus Gate in the Old City. The second officer suffered light to moderate wounds. A third officer was wounded in the crossfire that killed the terrorist.

Doctors said they have stabilized the policeman’s condition but that his life is out of danger.

He and two other riot-control policemen were stabbed Saturday afternoon in the Old City after the terrorist handed over to the policeman his identification card. Other officers shot and killed the terrorist, but a stray bullet lightly wounded another officer.

The attack occurred several hours after police officers shot and killed another Arab teenage terrorist who had stabbed two Hareidi Jews near Damascus Gate, both of them in their 60s. They suffered light to moderate wounds.

4 Border Guard Police Hurt in Jerusalem Terror Attack

Friday, September 18th, 2015

Four Israeli Border Guard Police officers were wounded late Friday afternoon in a riot that started in the Jerusalem neighborhood of Jabel Mukabar. The site is near Armon Hanatziv, where a Jewish man was murdered in a road terror rock attack earlier this week.

Two of the soldiers were shot and two others were targeted by firebombs hurled by the rioting Arabs. One of the four sustained a hand injury; two others were treated at the scene by Magen David Adom paramedics for burns. A fourth soldier was evacuated to Shaare Tzedek Medical Center in serious condition.

A number of the rioting Arabs were also wounded in the melee as security personnel worked to disperse the mob. In addition to the rocks, bottles, firebombs and firecrackers being hurled, the rioters also burned tires and trash bins in the street.

Clashes were reported at the Damascus Gate entrance to the Old City of Jerusalem earlier in the afternoon after the Friday call to Islamic prayers.

The violence comes in response to the call by Gaza’s Hamas terrorist organization for a “day of rage” in solidarity with Jerusalem Arabs who have been attacking Jewish civilians and security personnel all week.

Late Thursday night, IDF soldiers fired back at Palestinian Arab terrorists who were firebombing Israeli drivers traveling on the road between the Samaria Jewish communities of Itamar and Elon Moreh.

“Forces from the IDF’s Rotem battalion, who were performing an ambush in the vicinity, responded with accurate fire against the firebomb thrower,” said the IDF Spokesperson. “One of the terrorists was hit by the fire, and an additional terrorist was arrested following a pursuit.”

Damascus Gate Stabber Was Convicted Killer From Hebron

Thursday, August 27th, 2015

Hebron resident Muammar Ata Mahmoud, 56, should not have been in Jerusalem Wednesday night.

Had he obeyed the conditions of his release from prison in 2013, he would not have been able to stab a Border Guard Police officer at the Damascus Gate in the Old City of Jerusalem.

Mahmoud, a Palestinian Authority Arab resident of Hebron had no permit to enter pre-1967 Israel.

He and Salah Khalil Ahmad Ibrahim were both convicted of murdering Professor Menachem Stern, age 64, an Israel Prize-winning historian. They also murdered Palestinian Arab Hassin Zaid, a suspected collaborator with Israel.

They were freed in 2013 as part of the caravan of “good will gestures” to Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas aimed at keeping him in peace talks that ultimately led nowhere.

Stern was an internationally-acclaimed historian on the Second Temple period. When his murderers were freed, his daughter Meira Stern-Glick protested, saying “A person who murdered in cold blood should sit for life.” As with all other family members who have seen the murderers of their loved ones freed in the cause of “peace with the Palestinian Authority,” her protest was ignored.

Stern was stabbed to death on June 22, 1989 while walking to the Jewish National and University Library at Hebrew University in Givat Ram. The murder took place against the backdrop of the first intifada, led by the Palestine Liberation Organization from 1987 to 1993. It began with false charges of Israeli “atrocities” and incessant instigation from the mosques.

In one week, an Israeli was stabbed, a traffic accident in which four Arabs were killed was transformed by lightning rumors into a “deliberate” provocation, there was mass rioting by Palestinian Arabs and a teen rioter was killed by an Israeli soldier when he hurled a firebomb at an army patrol.

In the four years of the violence, the IDF reported more than 3,600 firebombing attacks, 100 hand grenade attacks and 600 shootings and bombings by Palestinian Arabs. Within that time, 16 Israeli civilians and 11 soldiers were killed; more than 1,400 civilians and 1,700 soldiers were wounded. Approximately 1,100 Palestinian Arabs were killed in clashes with IDF soldiers.

By that criteria, Israel is now well into its third intifada. How many injured and dead will it take before Israel takes steps to end this one?



Palestinian Authority Terrorist Critically Stabs Policeman in Old City [video]

Sunday, June 21st, 2015

An Arab terrorist from Hebron critically wounded a Border Police officer at the Damascus Gate area in the Old City of Jerusalem around 10:30 Sunday morning

The wounded policeman shot and critically wounded the terrorist. Early reports that the terrorist died have not been confirmed.

Magen David Adom medics treated the policeman and the terrorist before evacuating them to Shaarei Tzedek and Hadassah Ein Kerem hospitals, respectively.

Several posts of incitement on Arab media told readers that Israel left the terrorist to die.

The condition of the Border Police officer, described to be around 20 years old, is life-threatening. Doctors have operated on him.

Police estimate that the terrorist was a “lone wolf,” an increasingly meaningless term given the constant incitement from the Palestinian Authority and Muslim clerics preaching martyrdom.

Police clashed with Arabs in the same area Saturday night as the Muslim holy month of Ramadan gets off to a bloody start.

One person was slightly injured in a rock-throwing attack on his car and was rushed to Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital.
