‘Slight Improvement’ in Life-threatening Condition of Firebomb Victim

Friday, December 26th, 2014

Doctors at Sheba Hospital in Tel Aviv said Friday morning that there is a “slight improvement” in the condition of 11-year-old Ayala Shapira, who still is fighting for her life after a Palestinian Authority terrorist set on fire the car in which she and her father were riding last night.

They live in the El Matan outpost, adjacent to Maaleh Shomron, which is part of the Maaleh-Ginot-Karnei Shomron communities between Kfar Saba and Kedumim.

Her father escaped the burning vehicle with light burn wounds. Ayala suffered burns over 30-40 percent of her body, mostly in the upper parts and in the face.

Last month, Ayala’s mother Ruth was targeted in a similar Molotov cocktail attack in the same spot of last night’s attack. Her car was destroyed but she was not injured.

The girl’s father Avner told Yediot Acharonot that he saw the terrorists lighting the firebomb and throwing it.

“I shouted to my daughter to get out and she was able to do so,” he said. “We were able by the grace of God to get out of the car, but she was much more seriously wounded than I was. We hope that the hospital staff will be able to return her to her previous state.”

Ruth Shapira told the Israeli newspaper, “Ayala is a very special girl. She is an exceptionally smart child, who was on her way home from a program for youth gifted in mathematics at the Bar-Ilan University. “

Police said that Ayala almost certainly would have been dead if she had not rolled herself on the ground to extinguish the flames on her burning body.

As usual after a terrorist attack, the army sent a large number of soldiers to search for the attacker, who still is at large.

The nearby highway 55, the only direct road connecting Kfar Saba with Jewish communities in the area, has been the scene of hundreds of attempts to kill Jews with rocks, firebombs and guns. The army occasionally deploys several patrols simultaneously on the road.

And how does the pro-Palestinian Authority crowd understand the attack.

The Bethlehem-based Ma’an News Agency told its English-speaking readers, who include foreign media, a blanket lie.

“Maaleh Shomron is part of a larger settlement bloc…surrounding a number of Palestinian villages on at least three sides and preventing Palestinians from freely moving in the area,” it wrote.

As usual, the opposite is true.

There are far more Arab villages than there are Jewish communities, and the only ”preventing” to moving freely comes from Palestinian Authority terrorists who constantly try to murder Jews.

 

Breaking News: 11-Year-Old Girl Fighting For Her Life Following Arab Terror Attack

Thursday, December 25th, 2014

Samaria – An 11-year-old girl was seriously wounded and her father lightly injured when Palestinians threw a firebomb at their car in Samaria, on Thursday evening, December 25. The young girl suffered from third degree burns to her face and upper body as the car burst into flames. The two were travelling near Route 55, on the road between Maaleh Shomron and the El Matan community (an outpost of Maaleh Shomron) in northern Samaria when their car was hit.

Magen David Adom were called to the scene and volunteers provided medical aid the father, Avner Shapira, 40, and his daughter before transporting them to the Sheba Medical Centerv at Tel Hashomer in central Israel. A spokesperson for Tel Hashomer stated that the girl, Ayala, arrived unconscious and in critical condition.

Doctors at Sheba Medical Center are currently fighting for Ayala Shapira’s life, who suffered burns to 50% of her body.

The family’s car was completely burned in the terror attack.

It was the second time in the past month that the Shapira family, who live in the El Matan community, had experienced a terror attack of this nature. Earlier in the month, the mother of Ayala, had been driving when her car was hit by a Molotov cocktail thrown by Palestinians. She escaped the car unharmed.

Firefighter chief, Yossi Dahri stated that that “we got to the scene quickly and found the car completely engulfed in flames and the father standing next to the car. The girl had already been transported to the hospital.”

The call to report the attack took place around 6:30 PM, and IDF forces arrived shortly after to search for the perpetrators in the region between the Palestinian town, Qalqilya and Ma’ale Shomron.

Terrorists Firebomb Home in Beit El in Samaria

Monday, December 1st, 2014

One or more Palestinian Authority terrorists hurled a firebomb Sunday night at a home in the Jewish community of Beit El, in the Binyamin region of Samaria. No one was injured, and the attackers fled.

If the Arabs had “succeeded” by burning the house to the ground and wounding or killing the residents, the establishment media would have been all over the story.

But, like rock-throwing, it was barely reported.

That is how the center-left media moguls, including the government-funded electronic media, keep most Israelis in the dark. When a major terrorist attack occurs in Judea and Samaria, it is reported as if it out of the ordinary, an assumed sign of escalation, of an intifada, of the need for the government to take stock of why it allows Jews to remain in Judea and Samaria, unwanted by Arab terrorists.

Throwing rocks and firebombs at Israeli citizens and soldiers are daily events. It is not an intifada and it is not a war. It is carried out by a minority of Arabs, almost all of them under 30 and who have been fed 20 years of incitement by official Palestinian Authority media to hate Jews and to become martyrs.

The JNS news agency ran an interesting article this week that the Islamic State slave markets, and the ISIS’ treatment of young girls as objects of merchandise, operate with nary a whisper from the mainstream Muslim community.

Similarly, the majority of Palestinian Authority Arabs may not love Israel but they are not interested in an intifada. They know their own Palestinian Authority is a terrible alternative to the “occupation,” but they are afraid to speak out because of fear of punishment by the criminals, who do not even deserve the title ”terrorists.”

Israel’s establishment media is just as much to blame.

The attacks are on “settlers,” so they don’t merit coverage, unless someone is killed or seriously injured.

But when a couple of right-wing criminals, and that is what they are, set fire to an Arab-Israeli co-existence school, or post pictures of Tzipi Livni and other officials in Nazi uniforms, the broadcasters on Israel Radio rush to the microphone to resurrect the ghost of the blood libel aghast the national religious community for the murder of Prime Minister Yitzchak Rabin.

Work Accident or Mistaken Identity? Arab Car Destroyed by Firebomb, 3 Injured

Tuesday, November 25th, 2014

Israeli security and medical personnel rushed to the Binyamin Crossway (Road 465) near the Arab village of Dir abu Mashaal, after reports came in of an Arab car on fire.

By the time Israeli forces got there, Red Crescent ambulances were evacuating 3 people in unknown condition.

An initial investigation indicates that the car burnt up because of a firebomb.

What is not yet clear is if the firebomb was thrown at the car after the throwers mistook it for an Israeli vehicle, or if the passengers in the car were holding the firebomb preparing to throw it at a passing Israeli car and had a “work accident”, lighting themselves on fire instead of their target.

Security officials are examining both options.

Local residents scuffled with the IDF forces who arrived at the scene, and the IDF dispersed them with stun grenades.

The road was closed for a short time.

Jewish Man Escapes Taibe Lynch, Car Torched [video]

Monday, November 10th, 2014

A Jewish man, identified as Moshe, visiting friends in the Israeli-Arab town of Taibe escaped with his life, but not his car.

Around twenty masked Arab men from the town surrounded his car and attacked him as he was leaving.

One decent Taibe Arab managed to extricate the Jewish man from the “Allahu Achbar” yelling lynch mob before it was too late, and drove Moshe away in his car.

Without a human target to kill, the rabid Islamic mob torched the man’s car instead.

MDA ambulances were also damaged by Taibe Arabs.

As a result of this pogrom, police prohibited all Jewish traffic on Road 444, north of Kochav Yair (the town where Ehud Barak used to live).

MK Dr. Ahmed Tibi lives in Taibe.

Video from the entrance to Taibe:

In other locations, including Jerusalem, the Galilee, as well as Judea and the Shomron, Arabs attacked Jewish drivers with stones and firebombs.

A woman travelling near Maaleh Shomron with her 5 children came under attack by firebomb and stone throwing Arabs on Sunday. Everyone is safe, but the car suffered damage.

In Jerusalem, a man was lightly injured when Arab stone throwers hit him with stones while he was driving near Neve Yaakov. An ambulance took him to the hospital.

Jerusalem Arabs Riot but Police Have the Upper Hand

Saturday, October 25th, 2014

Arabs in eastern Jerusalem resumed rioting Saturday night, and Border Police arrested four rock-throwers and firebombers in an effort to keep an upper hand and send a strong message to deter incitement for a widespread uprising.

Only one person,possibly an Arab, was injured by rock throwing.

Border Police in Beit Hanina arrested three teenagers who were spotted preparing to throw stones, and one firebomber in Silwan, across the road from the Old City, also was arrested.

Riots broke out in several neighborhoods, and Arabs continued to target the light rail system, which has become a symbol of the “enemy” even though it serves Arabs and Jewish.

Palestinian Authority violence has escalated the past several weeks, and several attacks have gone unreported.

Hamas is trying to light the match to inflame violence in eastern Jerusalem, and its senior official Mahmoud Al-Zahar said that violence is needed to put an end to “Israeli aggression.”

However, he added that Arabs in Judea and Samaria are also fighting the Ramallah-based Arab regime.

Israeli forces numbered in the hundreds Saturday night to deal with a smaller number of rioters. The situation definitely is far from calm, but so far, there is not enough fuel for a return to the widespread intifada of the late 1980s and of the Oslo War, AKA Second Intifada, that began in 2000.

The security fence has stopped deterred most terrorists, and mainstream Palestinian Authority Arabs don’t seem to have any burning desire for the establishment of the corrupt and mismanaged Palestinian Authority as a country.

They know they are more secure with Israel protecting them in case Hamas takes over.

Palestinian Authority-American Shot Dead while Trying to Kill Jews

Saturday, October 25th, 2014

Israeli soldiers saved Jewish motorists from a firebombing attack Friday night when they shot and killed a Palestinian Authority-American teenager who was throwing a Molotov cocktail at passing cars on Highway 60, north of Jerusalem, Friday night.

Military spokesmen said that Israeli soldiers had set up a lookout patrol on the highway spotted the teenage terrorists hurling the firebomb and opened fire “in order to neutralize the threat to the lives of civilians driving on the highway.”

The terrorist, age 14, was identified as Orwah Hammad, who the U.S. State Dept. said was born in New Orleans, Louisiana and moved to the Palestinian Authority with his family at the age of 6.

He was from the village of Silwad, and residents told Haaretz that Hammad was the cousin of a terrorist who killed 10 Israelis in a sniper attack in 2002 and that his uncle was reportedly killed in the intifada that began in the late 1980s.

Hammad’s cousin admitted to the newspaper that he was among a group of that was throwing rocks at motorists, but U.S. State Dept. Psaki responded to the attack by sending “deepest condolences to the family of a U.S. citizen minor who was killed by the Israeli Defense Forces during clashes in Silwad.”

She made no mention of the circumstance of the shooting and simply stated, “We call for a speedy and transparent investigation, and will remain closely engaged with the local authorities, who have the lead on this investigation. We continue to urge all parties to help restore calm and avoid escalating tensions in the wake of the tragic recent incidents in Jerusalem and the West Bank.”

Psaki last week “condemned” Wednesday’s terrorist attack on the Jerusalem light rail train, when a three-month-old American-Israeli baby was killed, but unlike the American response strongly supporting Canada after the deadly attack that killed a Canadian solider in Ottawa the same day, Psaki suggested Israel do nothing.

She condemned the attack “in the strongest possible terms,” expressed “our deepest condolences to the family of the baby,” and then urged “all sides to maintain calm and avoid escalating tensions in the wake of this incident.”
