Jerusalem Arabs Riot against Israel because Arab Bus Driver Hanged Himself

Monday, November 17th, 2014

Jerusalem Arab rioters hurled firebombs and rocks at police Sunday night and Monday to protest an almost certain suicide of an Arab bus driver who Palestinian Authority propagandists said was executed: by “settlers.”

One child was lightly wounded Monday morning by a rock, but no injuries were reported among the police officers who had to deal with more violence by Arabs who are running out of excuses for their addiction to rage.

The driver was 32-year-old Yousef al-Ramouri, a driver for the Egged bus company, which is one of the most desired positions for a worker because of its generous benefits.

He was found hanged from his bow tie inside the bus he was driving in the Orthodox Jewish neighborhood of Givat Shaul in Jerusalem. Officials said there were no signs of violence on his body.

But that is not the way Palestinian Authority and leftist media reported the tragic death. The Bethlehem-based Ma’an News Agency quoted witnesses that they saw the “execution” of al-Ramouri at the hands of those fanatic settlers.

So now al-Ramouri is a martyr.

The International Middle East Media center, which claims “to provide independent media coverage of Israel-Palestine., quoted the Arabs48 website as reporting that “Palestinian media sources in Jerusalem said signs of strangulation were apparent on Ramouri’s neck, in addition to signs of violence on his body.”

That is all rioters needed to boil their blood and look for blood by picking up rocks and fixing some Molotov cocktails to throw at police in at least three predominantly Arab neighborhoods in Jerusalem.

So let’s get this straight.

According to the Arab narrative settlers killed the bus driver. How do they know the supposed killers were “settlers” and not just ordinary Jews, maybe a tourist from Miami?

That one is easy. All Jews in Israel are settlers because all of Israel belongs to Palestine, although that leaves open a small question of why Mahmoud Abba wants border based only on the Temporary Armistice Lines of 1949.

That question also is easy to answer.

His proposed borders are conditioned on Israel’s accepting a few million Arabs to come from Lebanon, Jordan, Iraq, Syria and maybe from South and North America because their great-grandparents or even their great-great-grandparents lived in Israel once upon a time. After that, the Arabs take over Israel and all Jews become settlers.

So the next question is, “How did the settlers ‘execute’ the driver?”

They must have pounced on him, strangled him and then decided to hang him by his bow tie so it would look like a suicide.

And there you have in a nutshell how the Arab world has programmed the robots in the U.S. State Dept., the United Nations and the European Union to blame Israel and the Jews for anything bad that happens to an Arab.

PLO Campaigns to Wipe ‘Temple Mount’ Off the Media Map

Sunday, November 9th, 2014

The PLO, to which the Palestinian Authority is subservient, has escalated its campaign to remove all connection between Judaism and the site of the destroyed Holy Temples by appealing to international media to stop using the ”inaccurate term Temple Mount.”

“The Al-Aqsa Mosque compound is not a disputed territory and all other terms, therefore, are null and void,” according to a PLO statement published by the official Palestinian Authority WAFA news agency.

It claimed that the Al Aqsa mosque has been under exclusive Muslim sovereignty and control since the construction of the Dome of the Rock in 692 CE, which is a blatant lie.

During the period of the Crusaders conquest, the site was turned over to the Augustinians, who turned it into a church while the Al-Aqsa Mosque became a royal palace. The mosque building became the headquarters of The Knights Templar during the 12th century

Israel raised its national flag over the Temple Mount after the Six-Day War in 1967, but Defense Minister Moshe Dayan ordered that it be taken down, and he authorized the Muslim Waqf to supervise the site. Jews freely ascended the Temple Mount without any objection for several years after 1967.

The Chief Rabbinate of Israel, run by Haredim, unwittingly aided and abetted the Muslim campaign to exclude Jews by ruling that Jews are forbidden from ascending the Temple Mount because they might walk over the buried ruins of the Holy Temples. An increasing number of national religious rabbis have permitted and even encouraged vesting areas of the Temple Mount where they say there is no such concern.

WAFA described the entire 36-acre site of the Al Aqsa mosque compound as a Muslim holy site.

The Palestinian Authority over the past decade has tried to eliminate any proof that the Holy Temples existed by removing hundreds of tons of debris that contained artifacts of the Temple period.

WAFA stated for media consumption that the Al Aqsa c=mosque compound is “sacred to approximately 1.6 billion Muslims around the world and [is] a symbol for all Palestinians.”

It added that the compound ”is located in East Jerusalem, an internationally recognized part of the Occupied State of Palestine” and alleged that “since Israel’s military occupation of East Jerusalem in the June 1967 War, several plots by settler organizations and other Zionist extremists to blow up the Mosque were uncovered by the Israeli authorities.”

The PLO strategy is to cash in on the Chamberlain-like appeasement preaching that “settler leaders, with the support of the Israeli government, continue to incite against this sacred site, and consequently provoke Palestinian fears and anger.”

According to the theory, Israel should not do anything that angers the Muslims.

It is no wonder that Iran still frees free to propose peace in the Middle East by annihilating Israel.

Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei tweeted, “Khamenei.ir ‏@khamenei_ir This barbaric, wolflike & infanticidal regime of #Israel which spares no crime has no cure but to be annihilated. 7/23/14 #HandsOffAlAqsa”.

Jews Ambushed in Arab Rock-Throwing Attack in Jerusalem [video]

Sunday, November 9th, 2014

Previous Arab riots, intifadas and suicide bombings succeeded only when Israeli security was unprepared and ill-equipped to deal with the violence.

Ignoring violence only incites rioters, who are excited by the smell of fear, to escalate viciousness to brutality and murder.

Arabs in some areas of eastern Jerusalem have ambushed Jewish motorist for the past three years, and the police have responded after the fact.

There is virtually no constant presence of Israeli police in the Arab neighborhoods, exactly like Hamas-Bedouin areas in the Negev where police don’t dare to enter for fear of being overpowered.

It was only a matter of time before Israel had to make a decision: De facto recognition of Arab neighborhoods as Judenrein or lethal violence that is going to exact a heavy price on both sides.

Below is a video posted on Facebook of an ambush in eastern Jerusalem. The driver barely escapes massive rock-throwing and attacks on his car by driving on the sidewalk to maneuver around a barricade that had been set up as a death trap.

Anarchy Fuels War over Jerusalem

Friday, November 7th, 2014

Jerusalem police found two stolen guns, 11 bullet cartridges and dozens of stolen IDF stun grenade in eastern Jerusalem Friday and arrested an Arab suspect in Jabal Mukaber, an Arab neighborhood next to the Jewish area of Armon HaNatziv.

The Israeli government has ordered a crackdown in Arab areas of the city in the wake of the new intifada, riots or Arab Spring uprising, depending on the mood of an editor.

The warning signs have been flashing for three years, but an Israeli blind eye and President Barack Obama’s overt backing for Palestinian Authority-claimed areas of Jerusalem have allowed terror to capture the fancy of an increasing number of Arabs in what is commonly referred to as “eastern Jerusalem.”

In fact, the Palestinian Authority also claims sovereignty over southern Jerusalem, home to tens of thousands of Jews in Gilo, Talpiot and Har Homa, and northern Jerusalem, where Pisgat Ze’ev and Nevei Yaakov are the homes of tens of thousands of other Jews. French Hill and much of Ramot also are in areas where President Obama has declared Jews to be “illegitimate” and “illegal.”

American ignorance of the Arab culture, especially when it comes to its attitude of a Jewish state of Israel, does not take into account that the president’s remarks, certainly not intended as incitement for violence, give the Arab world justification to ram cars into people, beat them with iron rods and throw rocks at them, at their cars and at the Jerusalem light rail trains system in order to defeat the “Zionists.”

Ambushes of Jews in “eastern “Jerusalem were reported as far back as three years ago. People were severely beaten and hospitalized, but the government ignored the incidents, encouraging the state of anarchy.

Police tried to stay out of Arab neighborhoods in order not to “escalate tensions,” a ghetto state of mind that is paralleled today by calls for Jews to stay away from the Temple Mount in order not to anger Arab Muslims.

It more or less reminds me of a little talk gave to a group of armchair Zionists in Baltimore more than 20 years ago during the Oslo idiocy. After I described the illegal hobbies of our Arab neighbors in the southern Hebron Hills, and after explaining the Jewish meaning of the word “Shalom,” one of the names of God, a very polite and stupid gentleman stood up and asked, “Well, if the Arabs don’t want leave you alone in peace, why don’t you just move to Tel Aviv?”

The Arab world has fed Arabs in Israel, and more worryingly an entire new generation, a steady diet of hatred and the notion that they are a “people” who are “stateless.” They believe Israeli is “occupying” them and would not believe how loathsome and pathetic were the lives of the grandparents and great-grandparents under the Jordanian occupation from 1948-1967.

That is part of history they never will learn. Instead, Hamas has done what Yasser Arafat did – exploit a vacuum and incite people to war.

There is war in Jerusalem, a war that Israel cannot afford to lose.

The violence may subdue tomorrow, or next week or next month, or not at all. Like most wars, there is no logic. Jerusalem Arabs received benefits from Israel that they could only dream of receiving under a Palestinian Authority regime.

They enjoy the light rail system, a cheap and efficient way of arriving to work.

But much of Arab Jerusalem is lawless. The city had allowed tens of thousands of Arab buildings to be constructed without permits. It also has discriminated against Arabs when it comes to funding for schools, parks and other municipal services.

Abbas’ UN Plan and Bibi’s Building Give Kerry Chance to Get Off the Hook

Monday, October 27th, 2014

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s announcement of big building plans for Jews in Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria give President Barack Obama and U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry their golden opportunity to dump their self-defeating peace process before it makes their foreign policy look almost as pitiful as it is.

“We are not going to make peace for the Israelis and the Palestinians, Obama and Kerry have said over and over again.”

The truth is they have been lying through their teeth. They have turned almost every trick in the book to pressure Netanyahu to cave in on almost all of Abbas’ demands, but they also have done the same to Abbas to back off at least an inch.

Their typical American misunderstanding of anything east of Atlantic City and west of San Diego, make that Hawaii, never has more apparent since the war in Vietnam. The only difference is that the ungodly number of casualties of American soldiers in the war finally forced a bit of common sense in Washington, which ended the debacle in 1973. The Obama administration has stubbornly hung on to the peace process to maintain its dubious diplomatic dominance in the Middle East.

Abbas’ insistence to ditch the failed negotiations, which were a charade to disguise his eventual ultimatum, royally ticked off President Obama. But he couldn’t very well kiss off a decades-old peace process project without making Israel share the blame.

Netanyahu almost gave him enough opportunities to do so with previous building projects in areas claimed by the Palestinian Authority.

May of the “projects” for new homes were the same ones announced several times, each time representing a different bureaucratic process in the nightmare to build a home in Israel, but that doesn’t matter. Headlines are headlines, and the U.S. State Dept. is more interested in its own agenda of illusions than it is in facts on the ground.

The timing never was right for Obama, and the projects for homes in Jews never represented a sweeping change in the off-and-ion de fact freeze on developing Judea and Samaria for Jews.

All of that has changed. New roads, a “boardwalk” in Gush Etzion, parks and a host of other projects, whether they ever get off the ground or not, give Obama the excuse he needs to state, “We have said all along that it is up the Israeli and the Palestinians to decide if they want the peace process to succeed.”

The funny or unfunny part is that once upon a time, most Israelis and Arabs wanted the peace process to go ahead, with reasonable compromises on both sides. Thanks to Washington’s stubbornness, even the center-leftists in Israel know that there is no sense in making another agreement that simply is a basis for another war. On the Arab side, the word compromise is not in their vocabulary. That is how they lost the wars.

The American lack of understanding of the Middle East culture, and especially of the Arab mind, forced Abbas into his no-compromise stand. Previous U.S. administrations have given the Arab world so many concessions they simply whetted their insatiable appetite for more and more.

Israel, whether under Barak, Sharon, Olmert of Netanyahu, repeatedly buckled under, However, the United States never understood that you can push Israel up against the wall, and when you do, watch out.

Washington is not used to Israel saying “no,” but the threat of breaking up Jerusalem is too much even for center-left Israelis.

Given the impossibility of Abbas returning from his one-way street to the United Nations for recognition of a Palestinian Authority state, and given Netanyahu’s fantastic nose for smelling a political opportunity, the timing could not have been better for him to declare “game over.”

Arab Violence in Jerusalem Forces Police to Return Law and Order

Thursday, October 23rd, 2014

Widespread violence and several riots that erupted in Arab neighborhoods in Jerusalem overnight following the murder of an American-Israeli baby have forced the police to fill the vacuum that the government created with a “hands-off” policy that have left both Arab and Jewish citizens at the mercy of terrorist anarchy.

Palestinian Authority media are claiming that Wednesday’s car-light rail collision that killed three-month-old Chaye Zisel Braun was an accident and not a terrorist attack.

The driver of the car has died from his wounds, but even if police ever will be able to conclude that he was not a terrorist – despite circumstantial evidence to the contrary – he definitely was a murderer.

The response from hundreds of Arabs was more attempted murder. They wounded a driver in a rock-throwing attack in eastern Jerusalem, and dozens of other Arabs rioted in Silwan, across the street from the Western Wall.

Little children in kindergarten in the Maaleh Zeitim were targets for rock-throwers Thursday morning.

Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat complained after the apparent terrorist attack on Wednesday that “Jerusalem has become unbearable” and that action must be taken to quell violence.

If the good mayor had said that two or three years ago, and not today and two or three months ago, perhaps the baby killed yesterday would still be alive.

Police have tried to ignore dozens of “almost murders” in dozens if not hundreds of ambushes of Jewish motorists who have been abandoned as sitting ducks for Arab rock-throwers in narrow streets in eastern Jerusalem, part of the city that the Palestinian Authority demands as part of its would-be state.

The Arab response to the shooting of the terrorist, or killer if you wish, is typical of a culture that dates back 3,500 years to Ishmael, of whom it is written in Genesis 16:12, “And he will be a wild donkey of a man; his hand will be upon all, and everyone’s hand upon him, and before all his brothers he will dwell.”

Other translations are less flattering, such as a modern Christian version that Ishmael “will be a wild man, as untamed as a wild donkey! He will raise his fist against everyone, and everyone will be against him. Yes, he will live in open hostility against all his relatives.”

Of course, this smacks of racism, just as Jews are “racists” because we are the “Chosen People” and just as anyone upholding the family unit is racist, and God is a racist for not creating men so they can give birth.

The Arab culture sucks up lawlessness. Not all Bedouin are thieves, but most thieves in the Negev are Bedouin. The Be’er Sheva court’s defendants are almost entirely Bedouin.

Not all Arabs are crazy drivers, but almost every crazy driver in Judea and Samaria is an Arab. Traffic fines are useless because the drivers simply don’t pay, assuming the drivers even have a license and assuming their cars are not stolen.

Violence is a way of life in the Palestinian Authority, and whenever anyone, especially Jews, try to clamp down, they are called “occupiers” and are met with more violence.

“The Palestinian Authority does and never has had a culture of peace,” Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon wrote on his Facebook page Thursday. “It is a culture of incitement and jihad against Jews.”

The Palestinian Authority has educated an entire generation to believe in terrorism, and the chance of widespread revolution cannot be totally dismissed, but it is highly unlikely.

The idea of a Palestinian Authority state, especially one that would pre-1967 neighborhoods in eastern, southern and northern Jerusalem, never has excited anyone except the sheikhs in Saudi Arabia and the Western no-nothings in Paris, Brussels, Oslo and Washington. The only thing that excites them is a chance to attack Jews.

Police always try to play down media inciters screaming “Intifada, Intifada” on a slow news day when they remember their agenda is to force a Palestinian Authority state down the throats of Israelis while they still are alive.

Another Ambush in Jerusalem as Media Ignores ‘Silent Intifada’

Wednesday, October 15th, 2014

Arab rioters attacked Jewish motorists in eastern Jerusalem Tuesday night in what has become a “silent intifada” thanks to establishment media’s generally ignoring frequent violence.

Arab rioters attacked several cars whose occupants were on their way on the eve of Hoshana Raba, the last day of Sukkot, to learn Torah at the “Beit HaHoshen,” in the heart of a hostile and almost entirely Arab neighborhood above Wadi Joz in eastern Jerusalem.

Shuki Set wrote on the Rotter.net website that he and his son were driving to Beit HaHoshen when they got stuck in a traffic jam, a ready-made setting for Arab violence.

“Arabs suddenly struck our car with rocks at point-blank range,” he wrote. “The kicked the car and smashed the side mirrors, but there was nowhere to flee. We simply stood there like sitting ducks, hoping we would not be physically harmed.

“Suddenly, one of the rioters heaved a huge rock and smashed the back window.”

The driver barely was able to escape the ambush, and he called the police. He discovered that there were other families who were on their way to learn and who also were attacked.

“This Jerusalem!” he wrote. [It is] two minutes from Hebrew University. Where are the police” Where are the authorities?

“I never felt so ashamed and helpless in my life.

“I hope the government will start to exercise its sovereignty over our capital. If we don’t stop this erosion in Beit Hanina, the rioters will get to the Mount of Olives and then Rehavia,” an upscale neighborhood near downtown Jerusalem.

We have news for Shuki. Arab attacks on Jews traveling to and from the Mount of Olives as well as the nearby Maaleh Zeitim neighborhood are almost daily events.

The establishment rarely report on them.


Because their agenda is that “United Jerusalem” includes Ramot and Gilo, maybe Talpiot, Pisgat Ze’ev and French Hill, but does not include anywhere else where Jews live in eastern, southern and northern Jerusalem.

The media silence is somewhat reminiscent of the Arab violence in Gush Katif from the 1990s until the day in the summer of 2005 that the Sharon administration expelled 9,000 Jews from Gaza and withdrew the entire military, down to the last soldier.

The establishment newspapers, website and TV and radio stations only reported violence when someone was killed or badly injured, and they twisted the reportage to push their agenda that things would be a lot more peaceful if the Jews simply would go away.

Even the media snobs in Tel Aviv know today that the result was they also had to hide in bomb shelters to protect themselves from missiles fired in Gaza.

If Israel’s media and political leaders really had learned the lesson, they would not ignore the daily violence in eastern Jerusalem that, thanks to the self-muzzling, has become a “silent intifada.”

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu last week finally broke the silence and ordered police to crack down on Arab attackers “to ensure the safety of Jerusalem.”

Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat occasionally stands up and makes a nice speech that the police are not doing enough to protect Jews in eastern Jerusalem.

Public Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovitch, arguably one of the worst ministers ever to hold the portfolio, insists that his office has zero tolerance towards the rioters” and that hundreds of arrests have been carried out.

Arrests usually end up in in the revolving door, but he often claims violence is on the decrease. He usually does so at almost the same time rioters prove him wrong.

The attitude of the establishment media was best-expressed in a recent editorial in Haaretz, the left-wing bastion to which foreign media turn for their “knowledge” of Israel.
