Hamas Goons Beat Gaza Families During Demolition of their Homes [video]

Monday, July 18th, 2016

Avi Mayer, the international media spokesman of the Jewish Agency for Israel, tweeted a video showing Hamas henchmen attacking Arab families in Gaza who stood in their way and were trying to prevent the demolition of their homes.

According to Mayer, Hamas claimed the homes had to be demolished “to expand the street,” but local residents, who demand market value compensations for their property, accused Hamas of using double standards when it came to home demolitions — bad when Israel does it, highly acceptable when the Hamas government is doing it.

Meyer cited Arab media reports saying that many Arab civilians, including children and the elderly, were beaten and injured by Hamas thugs.

The video, titled Security in Gaza Assaulting Civilians, was posted by Alquds.

IDF to Demolish Home of Hallel Ariel’s Killer

Tuesday, July 5th, 2016

The IDF and Civil Administration have issued a demolition order to destroy the family home of the terrorist who killed 13-year-old Hallel Yaffa Ariel, hy’d, in Kiryat Arba last Thursday.

The murderer, 19-year-old Muhammed Tarayreh, climbed in the window of her bedroom and stabbed the eighth grade girl dozens of times as she lay sleeping in her bed.

The killer was a resident of the nearby Arab town of Bani Naim, which is currently under a general closure by the IDF. He was shot and killed by the town’s Rapid Response security team, who fought with him at the house.

One of the team members was stabbed and critically injured during the struggle to stop him from escaping and attacking others in the community. The security guard was also hit by friendly fire during the fight.

Defense Ministry to Demolish Amona, But Build Bigger Town Near Shiloh

Sunday, May 8th, 2016

The 40 families who live in the Samaria town of Amona have to find somewhere else to live by the end of this year; their town is to be demolished.

Although the town was built on land purchased — not stolen — from Arabs living in the Palestinian Authority, the deeds that prove the sale were not accepted as valid by Israel’s Supreme Court.

But officials remember the price paid over the court-ordered demolition of nine homes allegedly built on “privately owned Arab land” in 2006.

Hundreds of civilians were wounded in the clashes to defend the homes from the thousands of Israeli police and soldiers who came to destroy them. The vicious brutality of some of the security forces was caught on camera and a number of lawsuits followed; countless Israelis were permanently traumatized as well.

Media footage remains from that debacle.

This time, the Defense Ministry planned together with the Amana organization that built the town of Amona to create a new Samaria town in its stead, near the existent Jewish community of Shiloh.

If the state fulfills its promise, the new 139-home town will be built on state-owned property near the outpost of Geulat Tzion, a new community triple the size of that which they have been forced to leave.

Israel Demolishes Home of Henkins’ Hamas Killer

Tuesday, May 3rd, 2016

IDF soldiers and engineers demolished the family home of Hamas operative Zir Ziyad Jamal Amar on Tuesday.

The family home of Rajeb Ahmed Mohammed Aliwa, the mastermind behind the attack, has already been demolished.

Amar was one of several terrorists in the Hamas cell responsible for the murder of Neria residents Rabbi Eitam and Na’ama Henkin as they traveled a road in Samaria last October.

The couple was shot to death before the horrified eyes of their four children while driving the road between the Jewish communities of Elon Moreh and Itamar.

The children, though badly traumatized, were miraculously not physically harmed.

Israeli security forces hunted down the terrorists involved in the attack – a Hamas cell from the Shechem area – and captured them several days later.

A fund has been set up for the future care of the four orphans who survived the attack.

Israel Demolishes Homes of Hadar Cohen’s Killers

Monday, April 4th, 2016

IDF and Border Guard Police escorted Civil Administration forces overnight Sunday when they demolished the family homes of the three terrorists who murdered a recently-enlisted Border Guard policewoman and seriously wounded a second one in Jerusalem.

The homes of Ahmad Naj’ah Ismail Netzar, Muhmad Ahmad Muhmad Kamil and Ammad Naj’ah Abd Aliltif Abu Alrov, all three located in the Samaria Arab village of Qabatiya, were demolished.

The destruction followed the terror attack perpetrated by the three operatives on February 3.

Border Guard Police Officer Cohen, hy”d, 19, fell in the line of duty at the Damascus Gate entrance to the Old City of Jerusalem. Her 20-year-old female fellow police officer was also badly injured but survived the attack.

Small Synagogue at Karmei Tzur Demolished in Civil Administration Pre-Dawn Stealth Move

Thursday, March 31st, 2016

A small synagogue recently rebuilt at the site of the Givat Soreq outpost on the outskirts of Karmei Tzur was demolished by Civil Administration forces before dawn Thursday in accordance with instructions from the Defense Ministry, according to the Hebew-language 0404 website.

It was in this same synagogue that sacred texts were set ablaze two months ago by Arab terrorists, a hate crime carried out by those in nearby Halhul.

Just a few days ago, holy books had been donated to the newly-rebuilt house of worship. But by Thursday 9 am, not a trace remained of the solid cement-block structure upon which the community’s rabbi had placed a mezuzah.

Outraged residents told 0404, “Thousands of illegally-built Arab homes and other structures exist, but the Defense Minister in his ignorance destroys a synagogue established in the memory of three Israeli teens who were kidnaped and murdered (by Hamas terrorists). It’s clear that it’s worth it to continue burning – because instead of dealing with the Arabs, the Jews are destroying themselves.”

It would indeed seem that perhaps the defense establishment has become confused about who it’s supposed to be defending and where retaliation is appropriate in political or military terms.

Karmei Tzur has been under siege from its Arab neighbors since the start of the current wave of terror, and has not shied away from the challenge.

Barely two weeks ago, about 500 Israelis marched from Karmei Tzur to the Gush Etzion junction to demonstrate against terror.

The marchers blocked Highway 60, a main north-south artery, in both directions as they demanded that deterrence be restored. The move came in the wake of a series of deadly attacks in the Gush Etzion region.

The timing of the demolition of the synagogue and the stealth with which it was carried out raises the question of whether the move came in retaliation for the community’s activism.

At the start of this month, Arab squatters returned to the Wadi Rashrash valley near Karmei Tzur – six months after they had been ejected by the IDF Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT). Arabs had started to build a road there and were using the wadi as a garbage dump.

The area has been under processing for declaration as state land for some time. The violation was reported but it is not clear whether the government followed up.

Karmei Tzur has been repeatedly traumatized during this wave of terror. On February 24 one of the community’s founders and leading residents, IDF reserve Captain Eliav Gelman was killed in a stabbing attack at the nearby Gush Etzion junction. He was stabbed by an Arab terrorist who was then shot by IDF soldiers, who also hit Gelman by accident in the crossfire. Gelman was rushed to Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem but could not be saved. He is survived by his pregnant wife and two young children.

Earlier that month, on February 9 an armed 16-year-old female Arab terrorist tried to infiltrate Karmei Tzur at the start of the day, dressed for school.

A resident of the community alerted the guard, who then warned the young wannabe stabber to drop her weapon – a kitchen knife – which she did.

The blade had clearly been sharpened, most likely after watching an Internet video of a sermon by one of the numerous radical Islamist clerics who urge their followers to murder Jews. They include detailed instructions on how to carry out those killings, complete with directions on how to sharpen the knives.

Three days prior to that attempted terror attack, Arab arsonists attacked the little synagogue on February 6 at Givat Sorek, the neighborhood on the outskirts of Karmei Tzur.

IDF Maps, Prepares to Demolish Home of Gush Etzion Stabber

Monday, February 29th, 2016

Late Sunday night, IDF engineers and combat forces to protect them mapped out the Dura residence of Mamdou Amro. The house will be demolished in accordance with current policy regarding terrorist attacks that result in the deaths of Israelis.

The terrorist, 26, attempted to murder IDF reserve Capt. Eliav Gelman last week in a stabbing attack at the Gush Etzion junction.

Gelman lived with his pregnant wife and two children in the nearby Jewish community of Karmei Tzur. He was hit in the crossfire and critically injured as IDF soldiers were aiming at Amro to stop the attack.

The wounded officer was rushed to Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem but could not be saved.

The terrorist was also hit by gunfire and seriously injured. He was taken to hospital as well and treated in Jerusalem.

Iran said last week it will pay $30,000 to families of Arabs whose homes are demolished because they murdered Israelis — but it is not yet clear how and when the money will be paid.
