13-Yr-Old Pisgat Ze’ev Terrorist Discharged from Hospital

Monday, October 19th, 2015

The 13-year-old bloodthirsty Arab terrorist who stabbed two Israeli Jews in the northern Jerusalem neighborhood of Pisgat Ze’ev last week has been discharged from Hadassah Ein Kerem Medical Center in Jerusalem.

The terrorist will remain under arrest and in remand for the next eight days while Israeli authorities try to decide what is to be done in his case due to his age.

Ahmed Manasara and his 15-year-old cousin stabbed a 25-year-old Jewish man multiple times, and then stabbed a 12-year-old Jewish boy riding a bicycle. The boy remains hospitalized in very serious condition — unlike Manasara, healed from injuries sustained when he was hit by a car after the attack.

Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas made headlines worldwide by claiming that Israel was “executing [innocent] Palestinian children… like 13-year-old Ahmed” even as the would-be murderer was receiving life-saving treatment at an Israeli hospital.

NYC Mayor De Blasio: ‘When You Are Attacked, We Also Feel Attacked’

Sunday, October 18th, 2015

New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio says New Yorkers are empathizing with Israelis.

Hizzoner went together with Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat on Saturday night to visit severely wounded terrorist victims at Hadassah Ein Kerem Medical Center.

De Blasio told Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat, with whom he has been in close contact, that New Yorkers have had a lot of experience with the effects of terror, particularly since the Al Qaeda attack on September 11, 2001.

“When you are attacked, we also feel attacked,” De Blasio said.

Barkat responded that terrorism is an international phenomenon, one that has become an epidemic that must be wiped out.

“The war on terror is global and common to many countries and the September 11 attacks, as well as our wave of terror, originate from the same source of evil that we must eradicate,” Barkat said. He added that although terrorists have done their best to try and disrupt the lives of Israelis, people living here do not allow their lives to be controlled by terrorism.

“Our residents are strong, determined and believe in the justness of our cause, and the desire to live in peace together,” he said.

Barkat added that Arab incitement that causes terrorism must also be stopped.

“This is not just a war against the terrorists themselves, but also factors that foment and create propaganda — lies and disinformation that we have to refute at every opportunity — to say instead one thing: the truth!”

He added that he believes that just as New Yorkers overcame terror, Jerusalem will also “soon return to normal.” Barkat thanked De Blasio for his visit at a challenging time, what he called “an expression of true friendship and solidarity.”

Yes, Abbas Lied Again – 13-Year-Old Arab Terrorist is Almost Ready to Leave Hospital

Thursday, October 15th, 2015

Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas can stop worrying now. His “13-year-old Ahmed” – the young teen terrorist who tried to slaughter two Israelis this week — appears to be quickly returning to health at Hadassah Ein Kerem Medical Center in Jerusalem.

In a statement Thursday referring to an incendiary speech by Abbas from his office in the PA capital city of Ramallah, the prime minister’s bureau said, “Abu Mazen’s comments last night were incitement and lies.

“The youth he is talking about is alive and hospitalized in Hadassah Hospital after he stabbed an Israeli youth who was riding a bicycle at the time.

“While Israel maintains the status quo on the Temple Mount, Abu Mazen, with his words of incitement, makes cynical use of religion and thus brings about terrorism.”

The young terrorist, meanwhile, is quickly returning to health, as is seen in a photo released by the prime minister’s office.

The hospital itself is also making an effort to disprove the lies by Abbas that Israel “executes Palestinian children.” Although this particular “child” nearly succeeded in executing an innocent boy even younger than him, he himself is recovering nicely, thank-you-very-much, in an Israeli hospital with up-to-the-minute medical care, the hospital explains.

“Hadassah Hospital wishes to inform the public that, in stark contrast to circulating rumors, the 13 year-old boy who attacked civilians … in the Jerusalem neighborhood of Pisgat Ze’ev was hospitalized at Hadassah University Hospital. His condition is stable and he is fully conscious.”

In the video footage filmed at the hospital, readers can see a nearly-healed, eating and drinking 13-year-old Ahmed Manasra — who stabbed and critically wounded a boy two months shy of his 13th birthday and a man age 25 — thus disputing the claim by Abbas that he was “executed.”

Hadassah Ein Kerem Medical Center stated Thursday afternoon that Manasra’s condition is improving and that he will be released from the hospital in the next few days.

The condition of his victims – including the witnesses permanently traumatized by the attack they watched unfold – is not as clear.

Jewish New Year Begins with Bloody Arab Violence in Jerusalem

Wednesday, September 16th, 2015

The Jewish New Year began with blood for security personnel as well as for some who were traveling on Rosh Hashana in Jerusalem and surrounds. Police who provide security at the Temple Mount in the Old City of Jerusalem spent the last three days struggling to contain increasingly violent riots in the compound as both Jordan and the United States ramped up their rhetoric against the Israeli government’s decision to enforce free access to the site by all faiths.

On Tuesday morning (Sept. 15) five police officers were injured while working to contain Arab riots on the Temple Mount for the third day in a row, the second day of the two-day Jewish holiday. Dozens of masked Palestinian Arabs hurled blocks of cement, rocks and live firecrackers at the security officers when they entered the Temple Mount compound. The violence is part of an ongoing attempt by Arabs to prevent Jews from accessing the site.

Police officers and firefighters encountered more violence in the afternoon while trying to extinguish a fire on Hagai Street in eastern Jerusalem. Arab residents of the neighborhood took the opportunity to hurl rocks and bottles at the firefighters and police officers who had responded to the emergency.

Several hours later, Jerusalem Arabs came out in force to hurl firebombs at police officers in the northern Jerusalem neighborhood of Shuafat, and by 8 pm Arab residents were rioting in the Jerusalem neighborhood of Ras al-Amud as well.

Dozens of Arab residents were also reportedly rioting in the Jerusalem neighborhood of Shiloah (Silwan) at 9:30 pm. At about the same time, Border Guard Police officers were fending off pipe bomb attacks by Arabs at the Qalandia checkpoint on the outskirts of the capital.

Also at about 9:30 pm, Arab residents shot fireworks at Jewish homes in the Jerusalem compound of Beit Orot. (About 90 minutes later, a frustrated Jewish resident in Beit Orot lost his patience and ramped up music from a speaker in the window of his home. Guess who the police decided to arrest?)

Arab terrorists hurled rocks at the Light Rail train as it traveled through the northern Jerusalem neighborhood of Shuafat at about 10 pm. None of the passengers were physically injured though several were traumatized and at least one car was damaged.

At 10:45 pm Tuesday night, just after the end of the holiday, an IDF soldier was hurt in a rock attack near the Samaria Jewish community of Har Bracha. The soldier was evacuated for treatment to Beilinson Medical Center in Petach Tikvah.

At the start of the holiday, Arab road terrorists murdered a Jewish Israeli motorist as he was driving with his wife and daughter late Sunday night (Sept. 13) in the southern Jerusalem neighborhood of Armon Hanatziv. The Arabs hurled rocks at his car, sending it careening it out of control on Rehov Asher Weiner, where it hit an electricity pole. Alexander Leiblovitch, 64, was subsequently pronounced dead at Hadassah Ein Kerem Medical Center in Jerusalem. His injured wife was admitted to the hospital and remained hospitalized in stable condition; their daughter was treated at the hospital and was released.

Rav Ovadia Yosef Hospitalized

Sunday, September 22nd, 2013

Former Israeli chief rabbi and spiritual leader of the Shas party, Rav Ovadia Yosef, was taken to Hadassah-Ein Kerem Medical Center Saturday night following a deterioration of his medical condition, Kikar Hashabbat reports.

He was fully conscious during the ride to the hospital.

Over Shabbat Chol Hamoed, Rav Ovadia was not feeling well and did not go down from his apartment to his study hall. He prayed in a small minyan in his home instead. He also required a supply of oxygen and care from his personal physician, Dr. Yochanan Strassman, who is the director of the Hadassah-Mt. Scopus Hospital Unit for Rehabilitation and Geriatrics, and former director general of the National Insurance Institute.

Dr. Strassman conducted a consultation after the end of Shabbat, and reached the decision to hospitalize.
