The IHH Shot Guns on the Mavi Marmara…and We Have Photos!

Monday, June 27th, 2016

Since it is the two year anniversary of the Mavi Marmara incident, it is reasonable to remind people:

IDF soldiers were shot on board the ship, and the IHH terrorists shot first. Bullet casings were found that did not match any IDF soldier weapons.

We have photos of some of the guns from one of the passengers’ cameras:

And we also have testimony from the soldiers who were shot and who witnessed IHH members with guns.

So even if you want to forget the fact that IHH members prepared knives, iron bars and chains to mercilessly beat and stab soldiers as they rappelled down, remember that they were armed, too. They are in no way “peace activists.”

I don’t think that this will be mentioned in the Turkish media today as they continue to demonize Israel on this anniversary.

Here are my Mavi Marmara posters:

3 Arrested at Holland Tunnel With Combat Gear, Weapons Cache, Driving to NYC

Tuesday, June 21st, 2016

Three people were arrested Tuesday morning with a large weapons cache, just before entering the Holland Tunnel on their way to New York City.

Two men in their fifties and a woman in her thirties were stopped by police on the New Jersey side of the tunnel when they were spotted in a car with a cracked windshield.

Port Authority Police initially stopped the trio at a toll plaza at around 7:40 am Eastern Time, police said. They were soon joined by agents from the Joint Terrorism Task Force, a source said, when a search of the vehicle turned up the cache of combat gear.

The collection of combat gear included body armor (several ballistic vests), a camouflage helmet with night vision goggles, multiple rifles and handguns (some loaded), a number of knives, and several magazines filled with ammunition.

Two senior law enforcement officials told NBC 4 News the suspects were “gun enthusiasts” and had “no nexus to terror.”

The trio reportedly may be from Pennsylvania, where a police source said “gun laws are more relaxed.”

Let’s See What the IDF Collected During Amnesty Month [photo]

Wednesday, May 18th, 2016

Back in March, the IDF declared amnesty month from March 20 until April 15. You could return all your IDF equipment you “accidentally” took home – no questions asked, no jail time.

The operation quickly received some guns and ammo, but now that it’s over, lets take a look at some of the more interesting things that was returned.

According to the chart below, the IDF received back:

IDF Weapons 5

457 guns and rifles of all types

1,343,711 rounds of ammunition

1890 grenades

396 explosive ignition and pyrotechnic systems

220 binoculars, scopes and night vision equipment

27,681 pieces of personal equipment (helmets, vests, knives, clothing…)

2142 explosives, shells, mortars and missiles

What appears to be 2 joysticks from a plane,

And one seriously decked-out motorcycle!
(The motorcycle appears to have been included in the photos as a joke.)

One 50-year-old civilian was taken to the hospital with gunshot wounds. He is seriously wounded.

The car matched the description of the vehicle that had carried out an attack just half an hour earlier in the Jerusalem neighborhood of Ramot.

Passengers on the bus in Ramot were told to “duck” and to lay down on the floor” when gunshots slammed into a bus earlier in the morning.

One civilian in a nearby car managed to stop and get a shot off at the terrorists.

A scarf identified with an extremist Islamic movement was found in the car that was used by terrorists in the shooting attack on Hatsankhanim Street in Jerusalem.

Discounted Guns to Be Sold to Beitar Illit Residents Amid Terror Attacks

Wednesday, January 6th, 2016

By Alexander J. Apfel/TPS

Beitar Illit (TPS) – In an effort to bolster security in the ultra-Orthodox city of Beitar Illit, located in Judea, which has experienced several knife attacks, the city municipality announced that a sale of handguns and various gun accessories will take place on Wednesday evening, January 6 in the Matnas on 2 Breslev Street. Representatives from the area’s security division will provide assistance to those seeking a gun license.

“Due to the current security situation, there will be a discount sale this evening in Beitar Illit where Glock handguns, accessories and holsters will be sold at extremely cheap prices. Representatives from the security division of the town will also provide assistance to applicants for gun licences,” related a local announcement.

In an interview with TPS, a Beitar Illit municipality spokesperson, who asked to be unnamed, explained that residents of the city should acquire guns for self defense as the community is flanked by three Arab villages in the Gush Etzion bloc. A terror attack back in November was perpetuated by an Arab villager from the local Husan village.

“Beitar Illit is located in Gush Etzion. The whole of Israel is in a stormy period and a large majority of Beitar Illit residents don’t carry a weapon,” the spokesperson said. He added that the precarious security situation combined with the cultural and religious nature of Beitar Illit rendered the area a particularly sensitive target for terrorist attacks.

“It is a haredi town so most of the residents don’t do the army, they don’t understand guns but they do want to. Therefore the municipality decided to put on an advisory evening where license forms will be distributed and explanations will be given on what they need to do to acquire a gun.”

The spokesperson also said that many of the terrorist attacks attempted or carried out thus far were thwarted by civilians who carried a gun. However, given that there is a conspicuously low number of civilians who have a licence to bear a firearm, “security guards, the police and ministers have called upon the residents to carry weapons. The people themselves understand the need also,” he said.

He added that “more and more people are applying for weapons throughout Israel.” Indeed, statistics shared with TPS by a spokesperson at the Ministry of Public Security seem to corroborate that many people in Israel do see the need to acquire a gun license.

According to the ministry, between October and December 2015, there were 13,124 applications for a gun license, of which 7,500 were approved. Between the months of May and July 2015, there were just 1,500 applications.

In the beginning of October as the terror cycle escalated, Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat, called upon civilians who were legally permitted to own a gun to carry them in the streets.

“Every time there is tension, I instruct people who are licensed to carry weapons and are experienced in using them to carry their guns with them. You’ll see that in many cases, those who neutralized terrorists were citizens who weren’t necessarily police officers,” Barkat told Army Radio.

Every Jew a .22 [audio]

Wednesday, December 2nd, 2015

In the wake of the daily terror attacks facing the Jewish state, the laws of gun control are changing in Israel. Nonetheless, the majority of Jews living outside of Israel believe in stricter gun control and do not own weapons themselves.

After the unparalleled history of oppression and murder suffered by the Jewish people, wouldn’t it make sense that out of all people, Jews would see the importance of bearing arms?

In this episode we look at the gun issue through a Biblical prism and explain why bearing arms in these times is not merely a privilege, but a responsibility.
