Dozens of Jerusalem Arabs Attack Police with Rocks

Sunday, July 12th, 2015

Dozens of Arabs in the Jerusalem neighborhood of Shuafat attacked Border Police with rocks late Sunday afternoon during an arrest of a suspect.

Border Police employed riot-dispersing methods and seriously injured one of the rioters with a “sponge bullet” when the mob tried to prevent officers from leaving the area with the suspect.

There may be complaints that the police response was “disproportionate” because they did not retaliate with rocks.

Hit-and-Terrorist Cousin of Mercaz HaRav Mass Murderer

Wednesday, May 20th, 2015

The Jerusalem Arab terrorist who ran over two police officers and tried to kill them is the cousin of the driver who carried out the massacre of eight Mercaz HaRav Yeshiva students in Jerusalem in 2008, according to Arab media.

Wednesday’s hit-and-run terrorist was identified as Amran Omar abu Dahim, 42, from the Jabel Mukaber neighborhood located between the Talpiot and A-Tur neighborhoods in southeastern Jerusalem.

He is the cousin of Ala abu Dahim, who drove his vehicle in 2008 to the Mercaz HaRav yeshiva in Jerusalem, entered the building with a violin case and then pulled out a rifle and gunned down yeshiva students,.

The massacre shocked the world, even the bleeding-heart liberals since it occurred at a widely-known yeshiva that is located less than a mile from the Central Bus Station in Jerusalem.

Today’s terrorist hit three police officers, two of whom were evacuated to Jerusalem hospitals for treatment of moderate and light injuries.

Arabs claimed that it was an accident and that police executed an innocent man.

BULLETIN: Islamic State Claims It Nabbed Eastern Jerusalem Mossad Spy

Thursday, February 12th, 2015

The Islamic State (ISIS) claimed on Thursday that has taken as hostage an Arab youth from eastern Jerusalem who sent to Syria by the Mossad, Channel 2 television reported late Thursday afternoon.

The Israeli government has not responded, but the Mossad rarely comments on reports.

ISIS identified the hostage in its English magazine as Mohammed Sayid Ismail, whom it said was drafted by a Jewish police officer who was his neighbor.

The ISIS publication showed a picture of Ismail and quoted him as saying that the Mossad was paying him approximately $1,200 a month. He also allegedly said he was trained for one month, a very short period and which makes the ISIS report doubtful.

However, although the story sounds surreal, several Israeli Arabs have been known to arrive in Syria to fight for ISIS or other jihadist armies, and the ISIS may be using an Israeli Arab as a tool for propaganda or may have actually captured one who was fighting with another group.

Jerusalem Okays Homes for Ramot Community that Media call a ‘Settlement’

Thursday, December 25th, 2014

Jerusalem’s planning committee has approved the construction of 243 new residential units in Ramot, a large neighborhood on the western side of city that international media have now officially termed a ”settlement.”

Most of Ramot is on public land that was occupied by Jordan from the end of the War for Independence until the Six-Day War in 1967. It was developed in the late 1970s  and almost never has been lumped in with similar areas in eastern, southern and northern Jerusalem.

The planning committee also approved another bureaucratic stage for building 270 homes in the same area.

Reuters reported, “Israel describes both settlements as Jerusalem “neighborhoods” and added that Palestinian Authority fears that the “Israeli enclaves will deny them contiguous territory” in a future state.

According to Reuters, Israel cites “biblical links” to justify the right to of Jew to anywhere in Jerusalem.

As much as the biblical links are true, as they are true for the entire existence of the State of Israel, Jerusalem built up Ramot because the city needed to expand and because a strong Jewish presence is Israel’s best security against more Arab wars.

Anticipating criticism from the United States, which backs the Arab world stand to shrink Israel back to the 1949 Armistice Lines, the Jerusalem committee stated:

There is no change in the policy of the municipality in recent years and we will continue to build in all neighborhoods of the city, for Jews and Arabs alike, according to the master plan. In the coming years, it is expected tens of thousands of housing units will be built in all sectors of the city.

New construction in Jerusalem is essential for the city’s development and for allowing young people and students to live here and buy an apartment.


Jerusalem city councilor Yosef Pepe Alalu, of the left-wing Meretz party, told AFP, “This kind of decision distances us from any chance of reaching an agreement with the Palestinians.”

While Reuters reported that Israel ”captured” Judea and Samaria and what is now Greater Jerusalem, AFP went one step further from the truth and told readers it “seized” eastern Jerusalem.

Israel Capitulates — Returns Bodies of Nar Nof Terrorists [video]

Thursday, December 25th, 2014

Israel has quietly reversed its stand and has handed over the bodies of the two Jerusalem-Arabs who carried out the brutal massacre in the Har Nof Synagogue last month. The families buried the terrorists in a ceremony replete with Palestinian Authority flags.

The massacre left four American-Israeli and British-Israeli rabbis dead, as well as a Druze policeman who came to their rescue. Seven more people were wounded.

Police remove casualties from a Har Nof synagogue after two Jerusalem Arabs butchered four Jews to death.

The Bethlehem-based Ma’an News Agency reported that the families’ lawyer issued a statement after midnight confirming the release of the bodies, a month after Israel held them pending further consideration.

Chief Police Inspector Yigal Elmaliach told the Israeli court system, as reported here.

“The State of Israel is trying to cope with the recent wave of attacks. One possibility being considered is not to return the bodies to the families, but [for the state] to bury them. The issue is being examined at the highest levels.”

The families of the terrorists, Ghassan and Uday Abu al Jamal, who were cousins, went to court to demand the release of the bodies. Ma’an said that Israel agreed to return the bodies after ”the intervention of the lawyer.”

Israel’s reversal means either that it learned that it would lose the case in court, or that officials at the ”highest levels” now think that holding the bodies for five weeks was enough to help cope with the recent wave of attacks.”

The “wave” has subsided” if one follows Israel’s major media that play down or completely ignore attacks such as this week’s ambush of a vehicle that came under an attack of cinder blocks that nearly killed the driver, Jeff Seidel, and two passengers, as The Jewish Press first reported here.

The “wave” has subsided unless it washes ashore again with more murders and attempted murders of Jews. Then, if the terrorists are killed, perhaps the government will again decide to hold the bodies to help cope with the attacks.

The Har Nof savages were given an honorable burial before dawn Thursday in eastern Jerusalem in the presence of no more than 40 relatives, according to the lawyer who spoke with Ma’an.

A Palestinian Authority flag was held during the ceremony.

Below is the video of one of the funerals.
