Chief Rabbi of Nikolayev, Ukraine on Firebomb Attack

Tuesday, April 22nd, 2014

On Sunday, JewishPress.com reported on the firebomb attack on the Nikolayev synagogue in the Ukraine.

Chabad.org interviewed Nikolayev’s chief rabbi, Rabbi Shalom Gotlieb about the attack, also on Sunday.

Here is an excerpt from their report:

“We came to synagogue on Shabbat morning, and it was quite scary,” said Rabbi Sholom Gotlieb, the chief rabbi of Nikolayev and the city’s Chabad representative since 1996. “We saw the front door and window of the synagogue were blackened.”

Synagogue surveillance footage showed a young man pacing in front of the synagogue shortly after 2 a.m. He then bent down and ignited a Molotov cocktail, lobbing it at the doors. Fifteen seconds later, he threw a second one at the window.

“He tried to light the synagogue on fire, but thank G-d, there are gates on the windows, so it did not go inside, but the window did get burnt, obviously,” added Gotlieb.

The resulting fire was put out by a stranger who happened to be driving by the synagogue and noticed the blaze, said Gotlieb. The man pulled a fire extinguisher out of his car, dousing the flames.

You can read their full report on Chabad.org.

As an aside, in response to some of the commenters calling the video a hoax, you should note that grass, when viewed though an infrared camera, looks like snow.

You can watch the entire attack on the video below.

Road 443 Warning – Too Dangerous for Israeli Ministers

Wednesday, February 5th, 2014

Israel’s VIP Protection Unit has warned Israeli government ministers that they should not travel on Road 443 due to escalating terror attacks. Those attacks include stones, firebombs, and a roadside bomb that was neutralized before it could explode, according to a report on Israel Army Radio this morning.

Road 443 is the second main highway connecting Jerusalem, Israel’s capital to Tel Aviv, Israel’s financial center.

When the Supreme Court ordered, just over 3 years ago, that parts of Road 443 be reopened to traffic by Palestinian Authority citizens, the more grounded Israelis warned that the road would return to being the terror zone it was before it was closed off to PA traffic and terrorism.

Before Road 443 was closed, six Israelis had been killed and more injured by Palestinian Authority Arab attacks on Jews travelling on the road.

Those on the left claimed that these Israelis were being paranoid and exaggerating (remember the warning about rockets on Israel from Gaza, before the disengagement).

It wasn’t long after Road 443 was reopened that the stone throwing attacks began again and escalated to the level it is now.

It raises the obvious question, since we know what prevents these terror attacks on Road 443, why are Israeli ministers being warned from traveling on the road, instead of the government resolving the terror problem the way it knows that works.
