Major Sting Operation Uncovers Terror Attack Plans in Northern Negev region

Tuesday, December 27th, 2016

Israeli security forces prevented a major terrorist attack in the northern Negev when they captured the members of an Israeli Arab terror cell last month, the General Security Service (Shin Bet) intelligence agency revealed on Tuesday.

Shin Bet agents and Israel Police forces captured two operatives in a joint operation carried out in the Negev region.

The terrorists were planning an attack against IDF soldiers, according to a statement by the Shin Bet, but there are other pieces in the puzzle not yet completely put into place.

Muhammad Masri, 37, of Be’er Sheva and Abdullah Abu Ayash, 26, were arrested by Shin Bet agents. During questioning one of the suspects revealed that Masri suggested carrying out a terror attack to avenge Israel’s ban on the northern branch of the Islamic Movement.

Abu Ayash agreed to the suggestion and the two planned the attack against IDF soldiers in three potential sites: the northern Negev cities of Dimona and Arad, and the Nevatim Air Base.

It is ironic that in all three of the target sites, the potential victims would inevitably include Negev Bedouin, Druze and Israeli Arab citizens, who live and own businesses in both cities, and are in all three places.

As part of the preparations for the attack, the operatives conducted a preliminary tour to gather information about the potential sites for their attack.

During the investigation, the forces also confiscated a Carl Gustav submachine gun and a large amount of hardware to be used for triggering explosives from a distance by one or both of the terrorists.

The leader of the terror cell, Muhammad Masri, has been employed for the past year as a deputy branch manager at the King Store Mashadawi” in Be’er Sheva, where Abdullah Abu Ayash was also employed. The two formed their relationship while working together at the store.

Masri has a long history of terrorist activity: He was released from prison just three years ago, in 2013, after serving a 12-year prison term for his involvement in planning a terrorist attack by the Al Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades at a banquet hall in Herzliya.

While in prison, Masri developed a strong relationship with Hamas terrorists from Gaza, Judea and Samaria, including a friendship with senior Hamas leader Yechiyeh Sanwar. In the years following, Masri pledged his loyalty to the flag of the Islamic Movement in Israel, and took part in its activities.

In addition, three Israeli residents of Negev communities were also detained for questioning in connection with allegations of involvement in weapons sales and similar transactions with Masri and Abu Ayash.

Bakhar Abu Tuqfa, 21, and Rami Abu Tuqfa, 22, both residents of Segev Shalom; and and Mahmoud Abu Kaf, 26, a member of the Bedouin tribe of Daw’it, near Nevatim, were all taken into custody.

Preliminary investigation from questioning of these individuals revealed information about the involvement of other Negev residents in weapons trade and other criminal activities.

“Indictments are pending against Muhammad Masri and Abdullah Abu Ayash,” the Shin Bet said in its statement. “The investigation is continuing and more arrests are expected.”

Netanyahu to Rename Dimona Nuclear Facility After Peres

Sunday, October 9th, 2016

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, at the start of his Sunday morning weekly Cabinet meeting, announced that he plans “to have the Nuclear Research Center-Negev renamed after the late Shimon Peres. Shimon Peres worked greatly to establish this important enterprise for the security of Israel for generations, and I think that it would be right and proper to rename the center after him.”

Peres is widely regarded as the founder of Israel’s nuclear research. He established collaboration treaties with France’s nuclear industry in 1954, through personal meetings with French government officials. As Director General and later Deputy-Minister of Defense, Peres controlled all aspects of Israel’s nuclear program.

“The idea and its implementation aroused the ire of many against me,” Peres described his Dimona project. “There were those who claimed nothing would come of all this. Others sought to prove that the idea was impossible to realize, and some prophesied that if we even tried to go in the direction I suggested, the whole world would turn against us, and Dimona would bring upon us a terrible war.” Instead, he pointed out, “the reactor undoubtedly gave Israel a new dimension. It is the greatest compensation for the country’s small size. Technology here constituted compensation for territory, for geography. And it is okay that the reactor is always mysterious and ambiguous because it is clear enough to serve as a deterrent to enemies, and ambiguous enough not to arouse the fury of the world. It gave Israel self-confidence. Everyone felt that the option to destroy us passed from the world.”

According to its official website, work on the Nuclear Research Center NEGEV (NRCN) began bac in 1959, as part of the national policy to develop the Negev desert. The IRR-2 reactor operates on the NRCN with nuclear fuel and heavy water, cooled and moderated.

Periodic authorizations to operate the reactor are granted following extensive safety tests.

The research conducted at the NRCN is designed to broaden the basic knowledge in nuclear sciences and adjacent fields, and to provide the foundation for the practical and economic utilization of nuclear energy.

A national radioactive waste disposal site is situated within the NRCN. Radioactive waste from hospitals, research institutions, higher education facilities and factories is delivered to the site.


A Founder of Dimona Reactor Calls on Govt. to Shut It Down Over Numerous Faults

Tuesday, April 26th, 2016

Prof. Uzi Even, one of the founders of the nuclear reactor in Dimona, called on the government to shut it down after numerous faults had been discovered in its core and its mantle. Prof. Even told israel Radio on Tuesday that the Dimona reactor has completed its mission and is no longer needed. He added that he had been warning for a long time that the reactor, which has been in operation for 53 years and could be the oldest operating reactor in the world, must follow the example of its contemporary facilities, in keeping with international safety rules.

But Even pointed out that the Dimona reactor is much smaller than the failed reactors in Chernobyl and Fukushima. According to him, even if the Dimona reactor springs a leak, the resulting damage would be minimal.

According to Ha’aretz, citing a research work that was presented in a Tel Aviv conference this month, an ultrasound examination has discovered 1,537 faults in the reactor’s metal core, which are being monitored continuously by scientists. Other topics that were discussed by the same researchers were ways to protect the reactors against earthquakes and missile attacks.

Israel Did Not Protest Release of 1987 Nuke Report

Saturday, March 28th, 2015

Israel did not protest the release of the 1987 US Department of Defense commissioned document that summarized The US’s knowledge of Israel’s nuclear and other technical programs at the time, according to a Jerusalem Post Report.

“We did inform the Israeli government of our planned release of the documents and they did not object,” Army Col. Steven Warren, director of Pentagon press operations, confirmed to The Jerusalem Post.

The report was released due to a Freedom of Information Act request a few years earlier.

The source claims Israel was informed and did not protest the document’s release, and if Israel had protested, in writing, the report would not have been released.

Israel has not publicly commented on the report.

The timing of the release, at a time of tremendous tension between President Obama and Israel, led to speculation that the timing of the release was intentional.

They Are Not Jews!‏

Monday, January 5th, 2015

Disclaimer: The following disclaimer is addressed solely to those who as a general rule eschew intellect for emotional outbursts.So pay attention, hypocritical liberals and moral relativists, because I will only say this once! It is always annoying to have to justify oneself to emotionally volatile people who throw the term racist out the way most people change their socks. Read the following article carefully before allowing blind rage to overwhelm you. Don’t skim the article or make false assumptions. Read every word and draw your own conclusion. My total opposition to the fictitious “Black- Hebrew” cult which is the focus of the following article has NOTHING to do with their skin color, and everything to do with their brazen attempt to usurp Jewish identity while labeling authentic Jews as frauds, and their persistent aggression and hostility over the years. It has everything to do with Israel’s grotesque failure to throw these racists out years ago, out of fear of what liberal gentiles in America will say, which resulted in the inevitable process of today, where Israel is granting them amnesty and citizenship. And it has everything to do with the contemporary effort of weakling Israelis to sanitize and sugarcoat their collective image, in light of the recent passing of their false prophet, Ben Ammi Ben Israel. There are obviously many authentic black Jews who were born Jewish or who converted according to Halacha. The Black-Hebrews in Israel and America are NOT Jewish, and the willingness of liberal Jews to accept their nonsense is consistent with their hypocrisy when it comes to tolerating black racism. 

Ben Carter, AKA Ben Ammi Ben Israel, the notorious leader of the Black-Hebrew cult in Israel has died, and judging from the reaction of many Israeli liberals, you would think that he was a great civil rights leader rather than a deranged false prophet whose life’s work was an attempt to usurp the legacy of the Jewish people. Israel’s most foolish minds are celebrating him as some sort of national cultural icon. Funny what happens over time. Once upon a time, this fraud and his cult were viewed by most normal people in Israel as an enduring outrage that was only tolerated because weakling politicians were afraid to address the actions of these black-racists, lest the world accuse us of prejudice.

Today, the liberal Jewish blogs and online rags are celebrating Ben Israel and the Black-Hebrews as a community of peaceful, Sabbath day fasting, non-vaccinating, polygamous, vegan masseuses who only want to share their healthy juices with us and impart their wisdom of organic colonics. So there is no mention of the racist supremacist teachings denigrating us as devils that are hidden within the cryptic teachings of their protected community. Gone from the record are the many violent skirmishes of the 1970’s and early 80’s when they successfully used the turbulence of the times to push their insane agenda.

Even before his death, such revisionist writing of history has become the norm. The following embarrassing excerpt is from the official webpage of Israel’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs:

“A phenomenon in a land  full of phenomena is the story of the Hebrew Israelite Community in Dimona, Israel. Labeled over the years as the “Black Hebrews,” community members began arriving in Israel in 1969. Led by Ben Ammi Ben-Israel, they came from the United States via Liberia stating that they are the descendants of the tribe of Judah….”

A more accurate wording would have been:

“A disturbing phenomenon, in a country where government regards insanity as the norm, can be seen in the illegal actions of the Black Hebrew community in Dimona, Israel. These racist interlopers from Chicago espouse a pseudo-historical racist ideology which designates themselves as the true Hebrews and the Jews of Israel as frauds. They have resided in Israel since 1969, when the Liberian government correctly viewed them as a menace and threw them out. Israel became their next destination. During the next forty years, successive governments of Israel have consistently refused to take the logical self-respecting step that Liberia took, and over the years violent confrontations, U.S. political pressure, threats of mass suicide, and other aggressive measures have successfully earned them amnesty and in many cases citizenship. Their love of organic fruit juices, and expressions of exotic dance have earned them a place in a society that is largely unaware of their true racist teachings.”

For a far less glorified account of the Black-Hebrew community than the pandering  of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and a window into the more ominous side of this cult, please refer to Yaakov Katz’s 2005 article “Distrust In Dimona” which was featured in The Jerusalem Post. Pay attention to Katz’s documentation of Ben Ammi’s close association with Louis Farrakhan and the former’s attendance at the latter’s 1995 Million Man March hate fest in Washington. Don’t expect to read such critical exposes in today’s edition of the same paper.

In a terror attack on Shabbat morning (Shabbat), Gaza terrorists emerged from a tunnel in the Be’eri region and attacked an IDF jeep, killing 2 IDF soldiers.

Sgt. Adar Bresno (20) Nahariya HY”D

Major Amotz Greenberg (45) from Hod HaSharon HY”D

The Hamas terrorists were planning to massacre the citizens of a nearby town.

One of the nine terrorist was killed. The rest managed to escape.

The terrorists were wearing IDF uniforms.

The army believes there may be as many as 20 more tunnels like these entering into Israel.

Additionally, in fighting today in Gaza, 2 IDF officers were seriously wounded, 3 officers and 1 soldier were moderately wounded and 5 soldiers were lightly wounded in battles with the terrorists.

A soldier was wounded on Saturday evening by an IDF tank’s active defense system which activated when an RPG which was launched at the tank. Apparently, the soldier was outside the tank and was seriously wounded by shrapnel. The soldier was transported to Soroka hospital in Beer Sheva for treatment.


70 Hamas terrorists have been killed since IDF ground troops entered into Gaza. 34 tunnel entrances have been discovered, 5 of which had already reached under the Gaza border, and into Israel.

Hamas terrorist launched a large number of rockets over Shabbat towards the Tel Aviv area and the rest of Israel.

One of the dozen rockets aimed at the Dimona nuclear reactor killed a Bedouin near Dimona, Aluj Aday (32). Hamas is hoping to hit the reactor and cause a nuclear holocaust in Israel.

That rocket at Dimona also injured two additional members of the man’s family, including a small boy and a baby.


The IDF discovered multiple terror tunnels in Gaza, during searches yesterday and today, as well as homes lined with explosives:
