Police Chief: Think of 1 Billion Muslims and Don’t Pray on Temple Mount

Tuesday, November 25th, 2014

National police commissioner Yohanan Danino publicly criticized on Tuesday a new decision by the attorney general that gives permission to Knesset Member Moshe Feiglin to continue visiting the Temple Mount.

He also accused “right-wing extremists” of igniting the recent Arab riots and murderous attacks by trying to change the so-called Temple Mount status quo, a long-standing government policy that allows Jews to ascend the Temple Mount but prohibits them from praying there.

The Supreme Court has questioned whether the discrimination against Jews is legal, but no one has brought the issue to the justices for a ruling. It is likely that the police would argue that the prohibition is needed as a security measure.

Danino left no doubt on Tuesday where the police stand – as far away from the Temple Mount as possible.

He stated at the annual Sderot Conference Tuesday that anyone who says that status quo should be changed “influences one billion Muslims in the world.”

His concern for Muslims is remarkable.

Public Security Minister Yitzchak Aharonovitch stated earlier this month that Knesset Members should not go on the Temple, and he also blamed them for violence, It is not the fault of Arab attackers that they pick up meat cleavers, knives and guns to kill Jews while they pray n a synagogue. It is the fault of the Jews for saying that they should be allowed to pray on the Temple Mount.

Perhaps the police commissioner and his boss would like Jews to change their prayers and not stop beseeching God for the Third Temple.

If the Jews simply would behave as the Muslims tell them to behave and stop making a big deal out of  going to the holy site, the Arab world would thank Israel and stop killing Jews.

Arabs would not even dream of violence if Jews would stop dreaming about the Third Temple. All of those eastern Jerusalem murderers and all of the rioters would have stayed home and enjoyed their hookahs.

If Danino things that anyone who wants to change the status quo is a “right-wing extremist,” then he is including Feiglin and Housing Minister Uri Ariel.

In his words today, “Anyone who wants to change the status quo on the Temple Mount should be prohibited from going there.”

The tactic of labeling someone a “right-wing extremist” is very effective. It places them outside the pale and makes them enemies of law and order.

Whenever Israel’s establishment media and political leaders want to oppose something, all they have to do is say that “right-wing extremists” are behind it.

As for Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein’s decision to allow Feiglin to visit the Temple Mount, Danino said it was a “mistake,” and Feiglin called on Danino to retract his statement.

“Perhaps Danino thinks the Temple Mount needs not be in our hands,” Feiglin stated. “He [Danino] is running away from his responsibility. His job is to protect Israeli sovereignty and calm on the Temple Mount.”

It is safe to assume that Danino thinks that if Jews who want to change the status quo would stay off the Temple Mount, there would be calm.

But judging by police tactics that harass Jews who simply want to visit the Temple Mount, without doing anything so radical as to pray there, Danino would be very happy to give the Muslims a long-term lease on the holy site and let Jews simply pray in their synagogues, even if they dare stir up trouble for one million Muslims by praying for the Third Temple .

That way, the police can go back to patrolling the streets, except for those in eastern Jerusalem, where those right-extremists Jews upset Arabs by living there.

Update 1:15 PM: Four Murdered in Attack on Jerusalem Synagogue Worshipers [video]

Tuesday, November 18th, 2014

Two Arab terrorists killed four worshippers at a synagogue in the Haredi neighborhood of Har Nof in Jerusalem Tuesday morning.

Police officers shot and killed the murderers on the steps of the Kehilat Bnei Torah yeshiva-synagogue complex.

One of the policemen is in life-threatening condition from wounds in the shoot-out with the terrorists. The quick response of the police, two of whom were traffic officers who happened to be in the area, is credited with having prevented a worse massacre.

Seven people are being treated for injuries. Besides the police officer in very critical condition, one other is in very serious or condition, the wounds of two others were described as “serious, while two others are in moderate condition and one was injured lightly.

The terrorists were cousins and from the eastern Jerusalem neighborhood of Jabel Mukaber, next to the predominantly Jewish area of Armon HaNatziv in Talpiot.

One eyewitness told police that a third terrorist escaped, but police later ruled out the possibility.

One of the terrorists was armed with a gun and the other with an axe and butcher knife, which was the size of that used in a slaughterhouse.

Chief Ashkenazi Rabbi Davis Lau called the attack a “pogrom.”

“Two terrorists entered the synagogue and slaughtered worshippers wrapped in prayer shawls and tefillin. Several of the victims were mortally wounded,” rescue volunteer Aryeh Shavit told the 2525 website.

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.

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.

Arab Rioters Injure Tourists in Jerusalem’s Old City

In the Jabel Mukaber Arba neighborhood, next to the Jewish area of Armon HaNatziv, Arab youth clashed with police, who dispersed the rioters.

 

 

 

Report: Kiryat Arba Chief Rabbi ‘Settling’ in Jerusalem

Monday, October 27th, 2014

Kiryat Arba-Hebron Chief Rabbi Dov Lior has reportedly decided to leave his community and move to the Jerusalem neighborhood of Beit Orot on the Mount of Olives, according to Kipa, a national religious website.

The rabbi, who wields enormous influence as one of the top national religious rabbis and who heads the Kiryat Arba Hesder Yeshiva and the Council of Rabbis of Judea and Samaria, reportedly plans to complete the move by Chanukah.

The rabbi reportedly bought property in Beit Orot two years ago, according to The Jerusalem Post. His assistant told the Post that having reached age 80, the rabbi ‘thought it right to step down from his post’ and decided to move to Beit Orot because ‘settling in the east of the city’ [of Jerusalem] was “close to his heart.”

Rabbi Lior is student of Rabbi Tzvi Yehuda Kook and served as rabbi of Moshav Kfar HaRoeh for 10 years prior to accepting the post at Kiryat Arba.

The Bayit Yehudi party, with whom the rabbi is close, said it would move to fill the position of Chief Rabbi of Kiryat Arba-Hebron with someone close to the mainstream of the national religious movement.

Arab Road Terror in Eastern Jerusalem

Sunday, October 26th, 2014

Once again, Arab road violence strikes the capital. This time Arabs hurled rocks at a bus and another vehicle traveling this afternoon (Sunday, Oct. 26) through Jerusalem’s eastern sector.

No one was physically injured in the attack, and no property damage was reported. Police threw a dragnet around the area and began searching for the perpetrators.

Less than 24 hours earlier, five rock-throwing attacks in various neighborhoods throughout the city included the Jerusalem Light Rail. Passenger cars on the commuter line were damaged by attackers on the northernmost section of its route through Jerusalem, in the Arab neighborhoods of Shuafat and Beit Hanina, even though the train serves their own population as well.

“In recent days we have reinforced the city with a thousand police officers, border police and specialized units. We will not allow rock throwing and disorder to become a reality in the capital,” Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said earlier in the day, commenting on the rising Arab violence in the city.

Many are coming to believe a third intifada has been launched by Arabs in Jerusalem. Some media have referred to it as a “silent intifada” because government officials are so adamantly opposed to calling it a full-fledged ‘intifada.’ In fact, it may be just the opposite. “It is not a coincidence that there are radical Islamist sources attempting to inflame the Israeli capital,” explained. “We will operate all force necessary to decisively and responsibly thwart their efforts. I expect wide support from all Israelis to defend the capital of Israel,” he added.

Hamas has been trying to ignite the violence in eastern Jerusalem, security officials contend — and Hamas senior official Mahmoud Al-Zahar himself appeared to confirm their comments, saying that violence is needed to put an end to “Israeli aggression.”

Zahar added, however, that the “Israeli aggression” is not the only enemy: Arabs in Judea and Samaria are also fighting the Ramallah-based Palestinian Authority Arab regime headed by Fatah faction and PLO chairman Mahmoud Abbas. That group is also an alleged partner with Hamas in the “PA unity government” both agreed to this past spring.
