Terrorists Arrested in Firebomb Attack That Burned Toddler and Family Near Beit El

Thursday, November 3rd, 2016

The IDF cleared for release that security forces arrested three terrorists who attacked a vehicle near the Jewish community of Beit El on October 24, 2015.

The three attackers are accused of hurling two firebombs (Molotov cocktails) at the car in which the Sofer family was traveling with their children. The seat in which their three-year-old daughter Tahel was fastened was struck by one of the firebombs.

It immediately ignited.

Tahel’s parents managed to stop the car, pull everyone out, tear off the little girl’s clothing and put out the fire, just as rescue teams arrived. Little Tahel suffered burns on at least 35 percent of her body.

The Sofer family had been driving on Highway 60 just before the start of the Sabbath when the firebombs were hurled at their car. The parents and two children were burned. The victims were rushed to Hadassah Ein Kerem Medical Center in Jerusalem.

“The attack was one of several pre-planned attacks targeting Israelis in the area,” the IDF said in a statement. It was carried out during the start of a wave of terror that included stoning, stabbing, firebombing, shooting and suicide terror attacks, and which continued for a number of months.

The three Palestinian Authority terrorists had been out “celebrating” another ‘Day of Rage’ on the Friday they carried out their attack.

Earlier that week, the United Nations Education, Science and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) had declared the site of the Tomb of Rachel — the ancient Biblical Matriarch of the three monotheistic faiths – to be solely a Muslim site, though it existed long before the founding of Islam.

A year later – in the latter half of October 2016 – UNESCO did the same with Jerusalem and the Jewish faith, effectively erasing all links between the Jewish People and Jerusalem, naming all her sacred sites solely by their Islamic names. The Temple Mount — site of the Jewish Holy Temple – also the location of the Al Aqsa Mosque and Dome of the Rock, and the Western Wall, the sole remnant of the retaining wall of the Second Holy Temple, are referred to in the recent UNESCO Executive Board resolution on Jerusalem only by their Muslim names.

The holy city of Jerusalem is stripped of her glory in Judaism and Christianity by UNESCO, as was Rachel’s Tomb the year before.

How fortunate that reality has so little to do with UNESCO pronouncements.

New Tel Aviv-Jerusalem Train Line to Reach Temple Mount / Western Wall, Just in Time for Moshiach

Tuesday, November 1st, 2016

The new upcoming high-speed train between Tel Aviv and Jerusalem will also stop at the Western Wall, Transportation Minister Yisrael Katz announced Tuesday.

The line will end with a tunnel reaching around the Old City to a terminal close to the Western Wall, he told a meeting with officials from the Transportation and Finance ministries, according to the Hebrew-language Yediot Aharonot newspaper.

There has also been some discussion about an extension of the current Jerusalem Light Rail north to Neve Yaakov, and south to Hadassah Ein Kerem Medical Center.

Such an extension is intended to relieve crowding at the main station in Jerusalem, making it easier for Israelis and foreigners, locals and tourists, to reach the Western Wall. In addition, once the Third Temple is rebuilt, it will allows Jews around the country to easily and quickly travel to the Jewish people’s holiest site for the holidays.

The Mikdash Movement praised Minister Katz, who is also a Kohen, for the plans for extend the train to the Temple Mount.

Katz also said, “This will allow thousands of workers to commute to Jerusalem, and to arrive in the capital quickly and comfortably.”

The project has been in the works since 2001. Projected to cost an estimated NIS 7 billion ($1.8 billion), it’s expected to reduce travel time on the train line between the two cities from 78 to 28 minutes. The original Tel Aviv-Jerusalem railway line was built during the reign of the Ottoman Empire.

The train is expected to be ready for passenger travel by Passover 2018, just in time to bring the Pascal sacrifice.

Arab Terror Stabber Sentenced to 17 Years, Fined NIS 50K

Wednesday, October 26th, 2016

An Arab terrorist has been fined and sentenced to prison by the Jerusalem Magistrate’s Court after his conviction on charges of attempting to murder IDF soldier on December 27, 2015, near the Jerusalem Central Bus Station.

The 21-year-old soldier who was stabbed in the attack near the Center One shopping mall in the Romema neighborhood was moderately wounded. He was evacuated to Hadassah Ein Kerem Medical Center and later listed in stable condition.

The terrorist, 30-year-old Siyad Komboz, was found guilty of attempted murder and weapons possession along with a number of other serious charges. He confessed to the attack, telling his interrogators that he had wanted to kill Jews and “die as a shahid,” the Arabic word for “martyr.”

Komboz was sentenced to 17 years in prison and fined NIS 50,000. However, he will receive a generous monthly stipend for his “work” from the Palestinian Authority via the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) prisoner’s fund. It will equal or exceed the average monthly salary of most Arab citizens living in PA territories, as a reward for his efforts to murder an Israeli Jew. When he is released, the Palestinian Authority will also support his rehabilitation and guarantee him a job.

Jerusalem Light Rail Expansion Approved, City to Add More Lines

Wednesday, July 6th, 2016

The city of Jerusalem has approved two more Light Rail lines in the holy city, a Green Line and a Blue Line. The go-ahead was given at a municipal planning meeting last month.

The current Red Line is also to be extended, north to the Neve Yaakov neighborhood, and south to the Hadassah Ein Kerem Medical Center.

“I am happy to see that Jerusalem will go from having one successful Light Rail line to a network of three lines,” Transportation Minister Israel Katz said after the approvals were passed. “Light rail has significantly changed the city’s transportation… Jerusalem deserves a light rail system like that in Europe.”

The approximately 19.6 kilometer route set for the Green Line begins in the southern Jerusalem neighborhood of Gilo and will pass through the Jerusalem Convention Center, known in Hebrew as Binyanei Ha’Uma, where the “A-1” fast line railway has a terminus. It will cross the current Red Line on Herzog Boulevard, and run up to Mount Scopus.

The Green line is currently set to include 36 stops to service an expected ridership of 200,000 passengers per day, according to the Railway Gazette website.

The Blue Line is set to run about 23 kilometers from the northwestern Ramot neighborhood through the center of the city out to the eastern Talpiot neighborhood, and then on to Gilo.

The Blue line will include branches to the Malcha Mall and to Mount Scopus as well, with 42 stops and an expected ridership of some 250,000 passengers per day.

Wednesday, July 6th, 2016

An Arab terrorist is believed to have carried out a vehicle ramming attack against IDF soldiers early Wednesday evening as they were traveling in a military vehicle on Highway 60 in Judea, near the Jewish community of Neve Daniel.

The site is about eight minutes’ drive south of Jerusalem. The Arab driver crashed his vehicle head-on into the IDF vehicle.

The terrorist sustained a serious head injury, according to military sources quoted by international media.

Three IDF soldiers, all age 20, were wounded in the attack. One suffered chest and limb wounds and is in serious condition; two others sustained broken bones and other injuries to their limbs. The latter two are in fair condition. All were evacuated to Hadassah Ein Kerem Medical Center in Jerusalem.

Security personnel and IDF soldiers closed down the highway and set up road blocks and launched a search of the area for any accomplices.

This was the second travel attack perpetrated by Arabs on Wednesday.

Rocks were thrown by Arab terrorists at the Jerusalem Light Rail as it made its way through the capital. It’s not the first time the railway has been targeted by terrorists.

The first car on the train was damaged but no one was physically injured. Police are searching for the terrorists.
