Emotions Run Deep as Body of Ezra Schwartz, z’l Arrives in US for Burial

Sunday, November 22nd, 2015

Emotions ran deep as the body of young Ezra Schwartz, z’l arrived home in Boston for burial on Sunday, Nov. 22, accompanied by many of the students with whom he had learned weeks earlier.

Dozens of young men bid farewell Saturday night to the 18-year-old yeshiva student who was brutally murdered in a terrorist attack by a Palestinian Authority Arab last Thursday.

Many yeshiva students from Beit Shemesh volunteered to travel the final journey with their fellow student’s body. They and numerous others gathered in a circle at Ben Gurion International Airport in Tel Aviv on Saturday night to sing the Israeli national anthem, HaTikvah. Schwartz was one of a total of five people who lost their lives to Arab terror on Thursday.

Yeshiva University Israel Alumni and Yeshiva University in Israel joined Yeshivat Ashreinu, Israel Friends and Alumni of Maimonides School and Klal Yisroel in mourning the student’s tragic death.

It was announced that a memorial service is scheduled for Sunday evening November 22 on the campus of Midrashiat Amaliah, Rehov Haim Heller 31, Givat Mordechai, Jerusalem. Recitation of Tehillim is set to begin at 6:30 pm. The funeral for the young yeshiva student, scheduled to begin at 7:00 pm Israel time, will be broadcast live on site.

On Saturday night, as farewells were said to the murdered American, people in Kiryat Gat raced for cover while others hunted for another Arab terrorist who stabbed four new victims, one a 13-year-old girl. Several hours later with air and ground support that included some 250 police officers, the stabber was caught just before midnight, with the blood-drenched knife still in his possession.

Barely 100 meters from the scene of the attack, the 16-year-old terrorist was hiding in a backyard on the same street where he stabbed his victims. He was given up to authorities by two of his friends, according to the Hebrew-language newspaper, Yediot Aharonot, and identified as an illegal worker from Hebron.

Arab Terror Attacks Popping Up in Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria

Thursday, October 29th, 2015

Arab terror attacks continued Thursday night on the roads in and around Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria, continuing the wave of Arab violence against Israeli Jews.

So far, Israel’s government and security establishment still intend to permit Arabs of all ages free access to the Al Aqsa Mosque on the Temple Mount Friday, despite the week-long festival of internet incitement to violence by radical Islamist preachers calling for the murder of Jews on the altar of “rescuing Al Aqsa.”

On Route 60 in Samaria north of Jerusalem, Israelis escaped injury when Arabs opened fire at people standing at a hitchhiking station. The attack took place next to the Jewish community of Ofra in the Binyamin region. The terrorists shot at four soldiers who were guarding the hitchhiking post, firing three bullets from a handgun, according to security sources. No injuries were reported. IDF soldiers at the stop returned fire at the terrorists, who drove away in a white Skoda, heading in the direction of the Arab village of Yabrud.

At around the same time, four Arabs in a car disguised themselves as Israeli police officers and tried to stop an Israeli vehicle on the highway in Judea Thursday afternoon.

Shortly thereafter, an Israeli motorist was forced to take evasive action while driving on the road near Ofra when Arab terrorists hurled a firebomb at his vehicle. No one was injured in that attack and there was no damage to the vehicle. IDF forces are searching for the perpetrators in all of the above attacks.

Arabs in eastern Jerusalem this evening also hurled an improvised explosive device at Border Guard Police officers patrolling near the Mount of Olives cemetery. The pipe bomb was aimed at the officers stationed next to the ancient Jewish cemetery.

Rioters are throwing firebombs (Molotov cocktails and stones at Israeli vehicles as they drive near Hebron, and on the road close to the village of Husan, south of Jerusalem. Husan is the village located opposite Beitar along Highway 60. “There were stones on the road, and army jeeps in the village,” a Jewish resident of Efrat told JewishPress.com .

In the Jerusalem neighborhood of A-Tur, police searched for Arabs who hurled an IED at a patrol vehicle making the rounds earlier this evening. The explosive device was hurled from one of the houses in the neighborhood and missed the patrol vehicle. Instead, it hit a parked car and exploded. Two people received treatment for severe trauma in the attack.

In a separate attack, two IEDs (makeshift bombs) were hurled at the Tomb of the Biblical matriarch Rachel, where the IDF has posted a permanent security presence. No injuries were reported.

“In light of recent events, I asked the commander of the Judea and Samaria Division to increase the military presence on the roads of Samaria, and to act more decisively against the terrorists,” said Kedumim mayor Hananel Dorn. “We set up an emergency headquarters at the Council and our representatives are managing the effects of the event on the residents,” he added.
