A Facebook photo on Sunday shows the Islamic State (ISIS) symbol displayed outside a building in the Arab city of Umm al-Fahm, headquarters of the northern branch of the radical Islamic Movement.
The city, with a city of approximately 50,000 Arabs, is located several miles northeast of Hadera and southwest of Haifa and on the main highway connecting the Mediterranean Sea with Afula and Beit Shean.
No Jews live in Umm al-Fahm. When right-wing activists wanted to stage a rally there two years ago and in previous years, complete with Israel flags, their numbers were limited as a security measure, and they were escorted and protects by dozens of police.
Umm al-Fahm, which borders smaller Jewish communities and is located next to northern Samaria towns, is a hotbed of radical Islam.
Arabs are Israeli citizens but risk their lives if they say anything in favor of the country.
MEMRI (Middle East Media Research Institute) posted last week a sermon by an Umm al-Fahm and shown on the Internet, supporting ISIS and calling Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu a “Jewish dog.”
Elsewhere in Israel Sunday, police continue to prohibit Jews from “inciting” Muslims by praying on the Temple Mount.
Below is video of a Jewish rally in Umm al-Fah, with explanations of Iran’s PRESS TV, which referred to the city as being “Palestinian” and located in the “occupied” territories.
Home Front Command says it will test the Code Red rocket alert siren system in the Haifa Bay area on Tuesday morning.
Residents of Haifa and surrounds should expect to hear a Code Red rocket alert siren at 10:05 am on Tuesday.
If there is an actual attack, the siren will rise and fall three times in succession.
On Friday, Iran released a new cell phone game to mark its “International Quds Day” dedication to its goal of wiping Israel off the map. The game is called “Missile Strike” and it features a rocket attack on Haifa.
For obvious reasons, Israel makes sure to keep its rocket alert sirens in perfect working condition.
Iran has come up with a new video game that features a missile attack on Haifa. This is a reality Israelis have lived with for years.
Iranian-backed Hezbollah terrorists in Lebanon have fired Katyusha rockets at northern Israeli civilians not only during the past two Lebanon Wars but also at various intervals in between as well.
Now, apparently, the attacks on northern Israel have become the subject of a cellphone game.
‘Missile Strike’ was unveiled Friday on International Quds Day – the Iranian-created international holiday devoted to the destruction of Israel.
The new anti-Israel game “displays Iran’s missile power and the Zelzal, Zolfaqar and Sejjil missiles (all built in Iran)” which are used by the players in the game’s first stage, according to game production project manager Mehdi Atash Jaam, who spoke with Iranian news agency FNA on Saturday.
“In this game, users break into the Zionist regime’s air defense and target Israel,” he explained.
Elaborating on the reason for developing a game in which the Iranian missiles destroy targets in Israel, Atash Jaam said that it was “a move in retaliation for the console game, ‘Battlefield’, that includes scenes simulating attacks on Tehran and its Milad Tower.”
The United States and five other world powers are expected to conclude a deal with Iran that will allow its scientists to continue their work on nuclear technology, albeit surreptitiously. Israel is concerned this may result in the country’s ultimate achievement of its goal: the creation of a nuclear weapon with which to make good on its vow to annihilate the State of Israel.
Former Mayor Michael Bloomberg has donated the foundation carrying his name is donating $100 million towards a $2 billion the Cornell Tech campus on Roosevelt Island, which is being developed with Israel’s Technion University.
The new campus is scheduled to open in 2017 and move from the small and temporary location since the Cornell-Technion project began two years ago. The new campus, to be called Bloomberg Center will cover 12 acres and accommodate approximately 2,000 students.
Cornell teamed up with Technion despite protests that the Ivy League university was tacitly supporting the “occupation.”
Qualcomm cofounder Prof. Andrew Viterbi said he is donating $50 million to the Faculty of Electrical Engineering at the Technion.
Viterbi, a native of Italy who grew up in the United States, has donated to Technion in the past, but the new grant makes him the university’s largest private donor.
This is not Viterbi’s first donation to the Technion, but it is his largest.
He co-founded the Qualcomm chip company and invented the Viterbi Algorithm for decoding signals.
Prof. Viterbi’s visisted and lectured at Technion in 1967, when he was on Sabbatical from UCLA, and he was granted an honorary Doctorate in 2000, when also was named a Technion Distinguished Visiting Professor of Electrical Engineering.
Technion President Prof. Peretz Lavie said:
This is the greatest honor for a professor at the Technion, and has been granted up until now to only six people, three of whom were Nobel Prize winners. The degree enables Viterbi to come to the Technion whenever he wants, and there was a period when he visited here every year.
Viterbi said after announcing the latest donation, “Technion electrical engineering graduates are in large part responsible for creating and sustaining Israel’s high-tech industry, which has been essential for Israel’s economic success.”
Technion graduates have been responsible for founding and managing 1,602 high-tech companies, he added.
The grant will enable Technion to enlarge the Faculty of Electrical Engineering.
It has taken at least two reports to police after a number of beatings, thefts and threats to elderly Holocaust survivors at a residence in northern Israel before the suspected attackers were finally arrested.
On Thursday, the accused abusers were to appear before the Haifa Magistrate’s Court as police request an extension of remand.
“Elderly Holocaust survivors, some not mentally well, went through a series of abuses” at the hands of a family of Palestinian collaborators with Israel, according to a police report filed in Haifa on Wednesday. The family lives on the same street as the residence in which the seniors are housed, according to the court papers.
“What we heard there was simply horrendous,” said one high-ranking police officer quoted by the Hebrew-language Yediot Acharanot newspaper.
“Their credit cards were stolen, they were forced to step off the sidewalk and walk on the road, they were beaten and their property was vandalized.”
A search of the suspects’ homes turned up jewelry, cell phones, work tools and other items that were suspected of being stolen. Police seized several of the family’s vehicles.
According to the police report filed with Haifa Police by the organization director and security officer who work at the residence for Holocaust survivors, employees were not exempted from the hostilities.
The seven members of the Palestinian family also vandalized vehicles belonging to employees of the organization that runs the residence, threatening the workers and assaulting them in several cases as well. Some of the suspects are known to law enforcement officials from previous incidents.
