Man Loses Eye to Arab Road Terror Near Hadera

Sunday, November 30th, 2014

A man lost an eye after he was attacked last Friday by an Arab in a road terror attack on Route 65 near Hadera. The attack was not publicized by mainstream media, nor did police disseminate information to the public about the danger to motorists on the road.

This past Saturday night, the Hebrew-language 0404 website also reported on a gang of Arabs who attacked a couple of Jews walking their dogs in the community of Beit Dagan. The attackers hurled rocks and even citrus fruits at the man and woman as they were walking their dogs in an orchard. The pair released the dogs, who then defended their owners and drove away the attackers.

The potentially deadly road terror attack that took place last Friday, however, came out of the blue — according to the 56-year-old Jewish driver — who told 0404 he was driving at the time along Route 65 near Talmei Elazar, next to Hadera.

The driver, whose name is Shimon, said a car passed his and then just cut him off and blocked him on the road. The Arab then got out of his car, screaming threats and curses, and started to hit him with his hands. When Shimon told him he was calling the police, the Arab pulled out a crowbar and beat Shimon in the face and over the head.

“I lost my eye and I’m still in the hospital,” Shimon told 0404. “I hope the police will take this incident seriously, because up to this point, I have heard no warnings to the public about this kind of terror that can threaten people who are on the roads.”

A staff member in the hospital expressed his own shock that such an event could even take place, regardless of motive.

“I have an infant seat in my own car,” he said, “a first aid kit, some wood treatment and CDs. This Arab had a crowbar in order to harm Jews. I just don’t understand how such a story does not grab the headlines in this country.”

As a matter of fact, police had not publicized the attack at all, despite having received several reports by eyewitnesses to the incident, who called the police hotline.

Iron Dome Battery Deployed to Central Israel

Wednesday, August 21st, 2013

The Iron Dome battery was moved to the Sharon region north of Tel Aviv for the first time, and is in position to protect Netanya, Hadera and other central Israel cities, according to the IDF.

Military spokesmen said that the battery is being deployed as part of the regular operational process, and is the sixth operational Iron Dome battery.

Metropolitan Tel Aviv is believed to be within range of missiles fired by Hezbollah from Lebanon, and at least one missile fired from Gaza overshot Tel Aviv last November and landed in the Mediterranean Sea.

An Iron Dome battery deployed near Eilat in southern Israel last week intercepted rockets fired from Sinai at the tourist enclave.

Brotherhood of Murdered Kin Protest Release of Arab Israelis (VIDEO)

Thursday, August 1st, 2013

Zichron Yaakov is a picturesque Israeli town near the coast, situated between Haifa and Netanya.  It is one of the oldest settled areas in modern Israel, and its quaint stone-paved streets, combined with wineries and stores displaying local artists’ wares and Israeli fashion makes it a favorite destination.

It is in the town of Zichron Yaakov that two families lived, nearly as neighbors, although they never met each other until common tragedies united them – the first tragedy being when each family lost a member to terrorist murders by Arab Israelis.  And now another tragedy looms: the potential release of those murderers in a political deal with no reciprocity at all from the other side.

In November, 1980 Corporal Avraham Bromberg was 10 minutes outside of Hadera on his way home to Zichron Yaakov, when he took a ride from the wrong Israelis.  These two, Israeli Arabs, members of Fatah, kidnapped Bromberg and later shot him at point blank range.  Then they dumped him out by the side of the road to die.

It took three years, but the Israeli Defense Forces and the Shabak captured Bromberg’s two murderers: Karim and Mahir Younis.  Karim was a student at Ben Gurion University when he was arrested.

The Younis men were brought to trial.  All three judges imposed the death penalty for all three defendants.

But, as Avi Bromberg, the nephew born one year after Avraham’s murder told The Jewish Press, the death penalty has rarely been carried out in Israel’s history. On appeal, the death sentences for Mahir and Karim Younis were commuted to life imprisonment.

But the commutation was not enough for the Younis family, which has been disappointed by Israel’s treatment of Karim and Mahir.  You see, the family hoped that their relatives would be part of the Shalit prisoner exchange.

“My brother has been in jail for 26 years. Even a life sentence has its limits – it’s like that all over the world. It’s only here that we’re treated differently… if this is a democracy than the law should apply to everyone equally,” is what Nadim Younis said at the time the Shalit exchange was first being discussed.

While it is unlikely that anyone in the Israeli government was persuaded by Nadim Younis’s twisted reasoning, perhaps someone had noticed that at least one Israeli was sympathetic to the murdering Younis mishpocha.

Writing in Haartetz in October, 2011, Gideon Levy wrote   movingly about an “Israeli Arab, Karim Younis, who provided transportation to Maher Younis who in turn killed a soldier, has been sitting in jail for 29 years without a single furlough, without a single phone call, even without any reduction in his sentence.” Levy was castigating Israel for only expressing joy at the release of Gilad Shalit and his reunification with his family, yet failing to rejoice with the families in Gaza whose sons were returning home to them.

Speaking with The Jewish Press on Monday, Avi Bromberg revealed something that had not been discussed before.  His uncle, Avraham, and one of the Younis murderers, were in high school together in Hadera.

Avi was speaking by telephone with The Jewish Press while sitting with a brother of another Zichron Yaakov family member who had been murdered by Israeli Arabs – also three cousins from the Arara Valley – ten years after Avi Bromberg’s murder.

NIGHT OF THE PITCHFORKS

When Guy Friedman entered the IDF in 1990, his original unit was with the Navy SEALs, but due to a leg injury he was subsequently transferred to a regular combat unit.  Late in the night of February 14, 1992, as he slept, three Israeli Arabs infiltrated the base near Mt. Carmel at which Friedman’s Nahal unit was conducting training exercises.

The infiltrators used axes and pitchforks to hack to death Friedman and two fellow soldiers, Yakov Duvinsky and Yuri Perda.  This attack shocked Israel both because of the brutality of the murders, but also because the killers were Israeli citizens.  All three were members of the terrorist group Islamic Jihad.

These Arab Israeli murderers, also from the infamous Arara Valley, were tried and convicted.  The judges hearing the trial found all three deserved three consecutive life sentences.
