Bullet-Filled Doll Halts Traffic at Ben Gurion Airport

Monday, September 15th, 2014

Ben Gurion Airport officials foiled an attempt to smuggle drugs and bullets on a plane to Uzbekistan around noon Monday.

Flights were delayed until officials were certain there was no more contraband on the flight that was scheduled to take off at 14:00.

Inspectors discovered a cartridge of bullets in a toy in a suitcase carried by a 36-year-old man from central Israel. Surprised at the evidence, he ran away and shortly after was apprehended. He told investigators that a woman asked him to take the paclage because he already had several pieces of luggage.

The man later identified the woman, a citizen of Uzbekistan, and a further examination of her luggage revealed toy dolls stuffed with bullets and drugs.

Official checked out the entire plane to make sure there were no other drugs and ammunition on boards.

Hamas Terrorists were on Psychoactive Drugs

Wednesday, August 6th, 2014

An IDF officer reported that a number of Hamas terrorists in Gaza were hyped up on psychoactive drugs, according to a report on Rotter.net.

Soldiers noticed that some of the Hamas terrorists they captured in Gaza were acting very “weird”.

Examinations indicated that they had been given drugs to make them “not afraid” to fight the IDF.

The report claims that a side effect of the drug is that it made it easier for the IDF to interrogate them.

In the beginning of Operation Protective Edge, it was reported a number of times that Hamas terrorists ran away as soon as the IDF approached.

The Hamas leadership may have given their fighters the drugs to stop that rational behavior.

Israel Police Report 9% Rise in Calls for Help

Wednesday, May 14th, 2014

It’s going to be another long, hot summer for security personnel if the latest statistics are accurate.

Israel Police report they received more than nine million ‘100′ calls (Israel’s ‘911′) from Tel Aviv in 2013 — a nine percent rise over the previous year.

Annual police data showed the heaviest rate of calls came in the summer months, in June, July and August.

Of the 9,208,890 calls received by the national Israel Police dispatcher, 40,868 took place at one o’clock in the morning, an hour when many bars close. Only 3,731 crimes were reported between 5 am and 6 am – in that grey hour before dawn.

In 2012, 359,503 complaints went on to be processed by police and nearly one third of those — 89,580 — were for disturbing the peace.

Figures show that 40 percent of the calls originated from the southern and central regional districts. But 18 percent came solely from the city of Tel Aviv; not far behind, 14 percent originated in Jerusalem.

Car theft accounted for 55 percent of nearly 20,000 calls to police.

In addition, police reported that some 2,553 kilograms of hashish were seized during the year as well as 1,171 kilos of marijuana and 47,316 tablets of methamphetamine.

In 2012, there were 19, 352 arrests for drug use, 4,448 arrests for drug trafficking and 2,972 arrests for possession of drugs “not for personal use.”

Teva Wins FDA Approval for Leukemia Drug

Thursday, February 13th, 2014

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted Israeli-based Teva Pharmaceuticals full approval for Synribo, a drug that is injected for adults with a with chronic phase or accelerated phase of myeloid leukemia.

Chronic myeloid leukemia, also known as chronic myelogenous leukemia, is one of four main types of leukemia and is a cancer of the blood and bone marrow.

The FDA had given initial approval for the drug in October 2012 but said Teva had to provide additional clinical trial data before it could bring the drug to market.

“With this approval, based on the final analysis of two Phase II trials that evaluated efficacy and tolerability data of Synribo, we believe healthcare providers can be even more confident in the clinical profile of this important medicine, said Teva president and CEO global specialty medicines Rob Koremans.

Israeli Police Expose Palestinian Authority Drug Lab

Monday, December 23rd, 2013

Israeli police exposed a drug lab in the Palestinian Authority city of Tulkarm, located on the western edge of Samaria and less than 15 miles from Netanya. A police spokesperson explained that Tulkarm was chosen as a site for the drug lab because it is not easily accessible to the Israeli Police

A large force of police and IDF soldiers surrounded and then entered a house, where they discovered a large marijuana factory and more than 120 plants. The drugs were to be distributed in the coastal Sharon area,. Over 120 plants were found. The lab was run by Arab residents of Taybe, located in the Arab-dominated area between Netanya, Umm el-Fahm east of Hadera and Kfar Saba.

The lab was exposed after the police had over the past several months arrested several drug dealers involved in the distribution of drugs which originated in this lab.

Police Nab Sabbath Observant Drug Traffickers

Thursday, September 12th, 2013

Criminals who observe the Sabbath forgot that Torah also commands not to endanger others, but New York City narcotic agents have now made sure they can’t do so after arresting them on charges of multiple crimes, from illegal possession of narcotics to illegal possession of a weapon, according to CBS news.

The drug ring was comprised of five Brooklyn men who operated out of Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn.

Police reportedly seized around 900 doses of heroin, as well 335 oxycodone pills, cocaine, Xanax, Suboxone and Klonopin from the group during their initial arrest in April. They also found a sawed-off shotgun and ammunition.

The name of the NYPD sting operation that led to the drug bust? Only After Sundown.

Though cavalier about New York’s drug laws, the group was scrupulous about observing the Sabbath. Text messages from members of the gang show them alerting their clientele of their weekly sundown-to-sunset hiatus.

“We are closing 7:30 on the dot and we will reopen Saturday 8:15 so if u need anything you have 45 mins to get what you want,” they wrote in a group text-message to clients.

Heroin-Addicted Would-Be Terrorist Not a Nazi

Thursday, August 1st, 2013

By Talia Lavin

New York loves nothing so much as a good scandal. So considering the carnival of a mayoral race that is now unfolding, it’s probably understandable some people might have missed this one: Aaron Greene, 31, a son of New York Jewish privilege, was sentenced today to seven years in prison for possession of explosives.

Greene was arrested in December after police found a cache of shotguns, bomb-making literature and several grams of a potent explosive known as HMTD in the Greenwich Village apartment he shared with his girlfriend, Morgan Gliedman, 27. Police say Greene planned to blow up the arch in Washington Square Park.

The story is a tabloid writer’s fantasy. Greene and Gliedman, who was nine months pregnant at the time of her arrest, are both heroin addicts. They are also both children of the New York Jewish elite. Gliedman is the scion of a wealthy Jewish family who attended Dalton, NYU and the Art Institute of Chicago. Greene’s father is a respected architect who helped design the Eldridge Street Synagogue. In the papers, Greene and Gliedman come off as rich-kid junkies with a fetish for weapons: Sid and Nancy meet the Weathermen, only a few decades late on both counts.

You’d think that would be enough for the tabloids. But the story of two nihilistic junkies about to give birth in an apartment full of sawed-off shotguns and a copy of “The Terrorist’s Encyclopedia” apparently wasn’t enough. Greene was reported to have attended Harvard, and to self-identify as a Nazi – the former claim refuted by the university, the latter by his attorney. The New York Post interpreted a lightning-bolt doodle that Greene used as a signature as the infamous symbol of the SS, and cited an anonymous source that declared Greene had a Nazi grandfather.

In reality, Greene’s relatives were survivors. In what may be the first instance of the Holocaust being used to defend a heroin-addicted terrorist, Greene’s lawyers gave this statement to the New York Times: “To state that the young man is a neo-Nazi when this is a man who comes from a family devastated by the Holocaust, based upon a mere doodle, is more than unfair, it is unforgivable.”

It’s almost August, so perhaps the Post and its brethren can be forgiven for getting a little hot under the collar. But fear not, New York: your trust-funded, drug-addled pregnant hippie terrorists are only that — not neo-Nazis or Harvard graduates.

Now isn’t there something about sexting we can read about?
