Suspected Shooting Attack at Egged Bus

Wednesday, June 10th, 2015

A 60-year-old female tourist was lightly injured in what appears to have been a shooting attack at Egged bus #1 in Jerusalem, according to a Tazpit report.

The attack happened around 10:30 PM. The bus was on its way from the Kotel at the time, and the attack happened near Zion Gate.

The driver continued driving until the bus approached the Mamilla mall.

The woman was treated on site by MDA, and then transported to Hadassah Har Tzofim hospital. United Hatzalah treated a few other shocked passengers.

Passengers on the bus and police believe that most likely the bus was shot with a bullet, but are also considering that it was a stone shot with a slingshot.

Ministerial Committee Approves Tougher Stand on Stone Throwers

Monday, June 1st, 2015

The Knesset’s Ministerial Committee for Legislation approved a bill on Sunday (May 31) proposed by Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked to increase the severity of the punishment for stone throwing. The bill, initially proposed by the previous justice minister, Tzipi Livni, will amend the existing law to cover cases in which the stone thrower’s intent to inflict casualties cannot be proven – as in cases of attacks on buses or police vehicles, when the aim may be “merely” to harass or draw attention. Shaked’s aim is to diminish the current disparity between the maximum punishment stipulated by law (20 years) and the relatively light sentences given in practice – a result of the difficulty in proving intent. The new bill will make it possible to convict stone throwers without proving their intent to injure; the penalty in these cases will be up to 10 years in prison.

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.

Arab Rock Attacks on Israeli Drivers in Jerusalem, Gush Etzion

Monday, September 1st, 2014

Arab terror gangs have again attacked Israeli vehicles over the past few hours on main arteries around Jerusalem.

In the early afternoon, Egged Bus No. 161, which travels through the Etzion bloc in Gush Etzion, was the target of a massive rock attack as it drove towards the capital.

Arabs hurled rocks at the sides and windshield of the bus, hoping to distract or even injure the driver enough to force an accident and stop the bus. The deadly strategy, which has been used successfully in the past, would enable the terrorists to finish off the passengers as well as the driver.

The ambush occurred near the Beitar Illit junction and the attackers smashed the windshield of the bus, but did not succeed in distracting the driver, who was well-trained. He kept the vehicle moving and drove out of harm’s way.

Miraculously, no one was physically injured although a number of passengers were traumatized by the incident.

Earlier in the day, a private vehicle was also targeted in a separate attack near Hadassah Medical Center at Mount Scopus.

The driver of the vehicle told the Hebrew-language 0404 website that he and his wife were attacked by Arabs about 200 meters ahead of the entrance to the medical center.

Early this morning, the Jerusalem Light Rail was also attacked by Arab thugs who hurled rocks at the train as it passed through the capital’s northern neighborhood of Shuafat. The attackers did not succeed in damaging the cars — this time — and none of the passengers were physically injured although some were traumatized.

The Light Rail only returned the route to full service through northern Jerusalem this week, after a forced hiatus due to damage caused by four attacks in a 12-hour span on Aug. 25. Rioting Arabs in Shuafat targeted the train and hurled a rain of rocks and firebombs at the rail cars, damaging several at a cost of tens of thousands of shekels and terrifying the passengers. The route was suspended for a week — cutting off service to thousands of Jewish and Arab commuters who use the line in northern Jerusalem neighborhoods.

The move followed a period in which service was suspended in early July due to the destruction of three stops in Shuafat by rioting Arabs who vowed to permanently stop the train from ever passing through the neighborhood again.

Arab Murder of Soldier Fuels Hopes for Kerry’s Threatened ‘Intifada’

Wednesday, November 13th, 2013

The IDF has identified the victim of Wednesday’s Palestinian Authority terrorist attack as 19-year-old Eden Atias, of Nazareth Illit in the Lower Galilee.

The 16-year-old attacker, from Jenin, pounced on his helpless victim while he was sleeping on an Egged bus at Afula, approximately five miles north of Jenin.

The bus had stopped for a break before its scheduled trip to Nazareth Illit, and it was empty except for Atias and two other soldiers. The murderer ran out the back door but was quickly overcome by security guards who had been alerted of the attack by a women soldier, apparently unarmed, who fled the bus while screaming that a soldier has been stabbed.

The terrorist said he acted out of revenge for Israel’s having sentenced two of his relatives to jail, one of them with a life sentence for terror.

That is all the State Dept. needs to tone down its response to the attack, in contrast to Tuesday’s bellyaching over reports that Housing Minister Uri Ariel hired an architect to draw up plans for new homes and apartments in the controversial E-1 area in the city of Maaleh Adumim and in smaller towns in Judea and Samaria. When Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu got wind of the news, he promptly Ariel to back off and freeze his plans.

The State Dept. will say in a more diplomatic tone, “If Israel simply would release all terrorists and prisoners, there will be peace” and never mind the victims of the revolving door terrorists who return to their favorite occupation of killing Jews.

The latest murder at the hands of Palestinian Authority Arabs, the sixth this year, occurred only days after the liberal bleeding heart wing of the defense establishment served up warnings that Israel is about to face a third intifada.

Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon, a lot more level-headed than most of the “experts” who are panting after the Obama administration to show how much they cooperate with the United States, insisted, “There is no sign of a popular uprising or so-called third intifada.”

Almost every one of this year’s murders has been carried out by lone terrorists, not connected with any terrorist organization.

But U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, who thinks he knows more about Israel’s security needs than anyone else in Israel, piped up last week with a warning that Israel faces a “third intifada” if it doesn’t give up its crazy idea that 600,000 Jews in Jerusalem and Judea and Samaria have a right to remain there as Jewish people in a Jewish state.

Hamas, which praised Wednesday’s terrorist attacks, definitely agrees with Kerry and is active in Hevron, Jenin, Shechem and other areas, but there is no popular support in Judea and Samaria for a revolt against Israel.

The average Mohammed does not want another round of violence, retaliation and the resultant economic stagnation that only would further postpone into eternity the date for establishing the Palestinian Authority as a country.

The average Mohammed is more concerned with Abbas’ corrupt regime and his single-minded aim to head a new Arab state that is totally dependent on foreign handouts and ignores the daily needs of its own people.

Every effort by the Palestinian Authority to organize “million man protests” has succeeded in bringing out 1,000,000 Arabs minus the last there zeroes.

The people aren’t interested.

The violence comes from lone rangers, usually teenagers or young men who have grown up with 20 years of incitement from their PA schools and Muslim preachers.

They don’t need Kerry to teach them to kill, but the Secretary of State’s statement is music to the ears of Hamas and the terrorist arm, known as the “military branch,” of Abbas’ Fatah party.

The threat of an intifada is simply another gimmick to pressure the Netanyahu government to fold up, go back to the edge of the Mediterranean Sea, and wait for the next boat.

The problem is one of “adaptive expectation.” If you think inflation is going to go rampant, you go out and buy like crazy, which encourages sellers to raise prices and bingo – inflation.

If the Obama administration continues to spout off the threat of violence, it will happen.

When Kerry responded rhetorically to an Israeli reporter last week and said, ”Do you want a third intifada,” he really meant, “I want a third intifada if that is what it takes to earn the Nobel “Peace” Prize.
