Police Foil Bombing in Jerusalem

Friday, October 16th, 2015

Police prevented on Friday morning a probable terror attack in Jerusalem by discovering am explosive device at a checkpoint at an Arab neighborhood next to Hadassah Mount Scopus Hospital.

A sniffer dog helped located the pipe bomb that was in a vehicle, and sappers neutralized the device.

Earlier this week, alert traffic police discovered explosives in a car driven by an Arab woman on the highway from Maaleh Adumim to Jerusalem. They stopped car, and she threw a bomb at the police, lightly injuring one of the officers.

It has not been disclosed if she was on her way to carry out a suicide bombing or was trying to transfer the explosives to a terrorist in the city for a mega-terror attack.

Peace Program Participants Injured in Mount of Olives Attack

Wednesday, August 19th, 2015

Four Jewish teenagers and an Arab woman were lightly injured when Arabs began massively stoning vehicles on the Mount of Olives, in the Jerusalem A-Tur neighborhood.

The group was participating in a summer peace program consisting of Israeli, Jordanian and PA/Israeli Arab students.

The father of one of the victims was shocked, according to the Tazpit News Agency.

He said, “My son is part of a group of youths, Israelis, Jordanians and Palestinians who study cardiology as part of a summer course in summer school. It’s unbelievable that it was specifically (“davka”) they who were hit by stones.”

It is unclear why he thought their participation in a peace program would provide them immunity from an Arab terror attack.

The attack happened around 9:30 PM on Tuesday, and a bus and two cars were hit, shattering their windows.

Four of the victims were taken to Hadassah Ein Kerem hospital for injuries sustained from the shattered glass. The fifth was treated on site.

According to Hadassah hospital, the four had injuries to their head and upper body, one also had injuries to the leg, and one had injuries to the eyes. The hospital said, very large stones were thrown at them, but overall their condition is good.

Thursday, April 23rd, 2015


Yishai broadcasts a speech delivered by Miriam Peretz, the mother of two fallen IDF soldiers, Uriel and Eliraz, during a “Friends of the IDF” dinner. In her address, she talks about her sacrifice, which she believes is necessary in the fight for the Jewish State.

Then, Yishai reads a story he wrote, called “Zikaron” (remembrance), one passage of which is as follows: “In that one moment, I though of gratitude: I am so thankful to you, fallen paratrooper, fallen Jew, fallen brother.”

Finally, Yishai is joined in-studio by former MK Dr. Aryeh Eldad, former surgeon-general of the IDF and head of plastic surgery at Hadassah Hospital in Ein Karem. He says that if the state of Israel is the thesis of Zionism, then the Holocaust is the antithesis, and the days of remembrance for the victims of the Holocaust and the fallen soldiers and victims of terrorism is the synthesis.
