Netanyahu Orders AG to Probe MK Zoabi on Criminal Incitement to Violence

Sunday, October 11th, 2015

(JNi.media) Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced during his cabinet meeting on Sunday that he demanded of Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein to launch a criminal investigation against MK Haneen Zoabi (Joint Arab List) over incitement for attacks on Israeli civilians.

“Pay attention to what she told the official Hamas publication,” Netanyahu said, citing: “The hundreds of thousands of worshipers must go to Al-Aqsa Mosque in order to face up to the Israeli plot to permit shedding the blood of the residents of east Jerusalem. Today there is only the action of individuals, and what is needed is popular support. If only lone attacks continue, without popular support, they will fade away within a few days. So when thousands of our people come out it will turn these events into a real Intifada,’” Netanyahu concluded the quote from Zoabi’s recent message.

According to Netanyahu, “this is a false and reckless incitement, and a clear call to violence. I am not prepared to ignore such serious things. This morning I approached the Attorney General to immediately launch a criminal investigation against Zoabi.”

Netanyahu also said at the cabinet meeting Sunday morning that “we are in the midst of a wave of terror whose source is false and systematic incitement about the Temple Mount, an incitement that came from Hamas, the Palestinian Authority and the Islamic Movement in Israel. Over the weekend, I ordered the enlisting of 16 reserve companies of the Border Police, in order to restore security and order. It is preferable to raise a massive force in advance, to take care of possible developments, rather than enlisting it after the fact—and we will enlist as many troops as will be necessary.”

The prime minister also announced that he intends on Sunday to convene another cabinet meeting to deal with government action against the Islamist movement in Israel.”

Netanyahu added: “At my instruction, the Government will approve today the enactment of minimum prison sentences of several years in prison for stone and Molotov cocktail throwers, as well as fines for minors and their parents. I want to wish a speedy recovery to the civilians, policemen and soldiers who were wounded in recent days. Also, I want to commend the security forces, Police, Border Police, the IDF and Shin Bet, for their dedicated and tireless work for the security of Israel, and I particularly want to commend the citizens of Israel who show vigilance, determination and an impressive fortitude.”

Israel Bombs Hamas Weapons Factories in Gaza

Sunday, October 11th, 2015

The Israel Air Force bombed two Hamas weapons factories in northern Gaza early Sunday morning in retaliation for a missile attack on the coastal city of Ashkelon Saturday night.

The Iron Dome anti-missile defense system intercepted the missile, which was headed straight for the heavily-populated city.

The Color Red incoming rocket alert siren activated in a number of other southern Israeli communities in the Ashkelon regional council district as well.

No one was physically injured and no property damage from falling shrapnel was reported.

This was the second rocket attack on southern Israel in as many days, along with numerous attempts to infiltrate into Israeli territory.

“The IDF holds Hamas responsible for any act of aggression from the Gaza Strip,” said IDF Spokesperson Lt.-Col. Peter Lerner. “This weekend we have seen clear incitement encouraging the breach of Israel’s sovereignty, violent confrontation against Israelis and threatening the residence of southern Israel.

“The IDF will continue to act, preempt and defeat those that plot to harm the civilians of Israel.”

An Iron Dome anti-missile defense battery was also deployed Friday in Be’er Sheva.

The rocket attack aimed at Ashkelon came after a day in which Gaza Arabs were shot by IDF soldiers after a mob stormed the security fence along Israel’s southern border.

At least six of the terrorists attempting to infiltrate Israel in the attack on the border fence were killed; more than two dozen others were wounded.

Nearly a dozen managed to infiltrate Israel after breaking through the border fence, but all were caught and returned to Gaza. Five of those captured were taken into custody by IDF soldiers; they were transferred to security officers for interrogation.

Update: IDF Restores Order after Arabs Broke Through Gaza Security Fence

Saturday, October 10th, 2015

Approximately 30 Arabs from Gaza broke through the security fence at central Gaza later Saturday, and soldiers arrested five of the infiltrators, who were unarmed.

The IDF clamped a gag order on the infiltration for several hours.

Soldiers forced the mob back into Gaza except for those who were arrested.

The breach of the fence is a serious security threat, and the IDF is on patrol to prevent further infiltrations.

Waiting for Rockets as Gazans Reportedly Killed in Border Clashes with IDF

The IDF confirms that they opened fire on a Gazan mob approaching the fence.

There is now concern that Gaza/Hamas will launch rockets at Israel.

U.N. Officials on Way to ‘Rescue’ Israel and PA with ‘Peace Process’

Thursday, October 8th, 2015

There is no “Third Intifada” nor is there “war.” Plain and simple, Jerusalem and Palestinian Authority Arabs are on a murder spree.

The United Nations announced Thursday it will send high-ranking officials to Jerusalem and Ramallah next week to try to dig up the “peace process” and save Israel and the Palestinian Authority from themselves.

Or at least, that is how they see it.

This is an old scene, played hundreds of times. Whenever Israel does not give the Palestinian Authority what it wants, Mahmoud Abbas calls for “peaceful resistance” in English while his Fatah party call for the murder of Jews in Arabic.

For example, the official PA daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida on Wednesday reported on a statement by Fatah Central Committee Member Jamal Muhaisen, according to a translation and posting by the Palestinian Media Watch (PMW):

Muhaisen stated that the Palestinian people has proven that its life and blood have little value [compared] to support for the Al-Aqsa Mosque and achieving freedom and independence… Muhaisen stressed that it is important that the popular uprising) increases, in order to deal with the occupation’s crimes and the settlers. He clarified that the settlers’ presence is illegal, and therefore every measure taken against them is legitimate and legal.

In plain Arabic, Arabs have a license to kill Jews.

But maybe Hamas terrorists and not Fatah terrorists or behind the murders of Rabbi Eitam and Naama Henkin?

A host on official Palestinian Authority TV asked PLO Executive Committee member Mahmoud Ismail, according to PMW:

Are they [killers of the Henkin couple] from the Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades (Fatah’s military wing) or from Hamas?

He answered:

There is no need to return to the argument and dispute about who carried out the operation… There is no need to announce it and boast of having done it. One fulfills his national duty voluntarily, as best as one can.

In plain Arabic, that is more than license to kill. It is a “national duty.”

Abbas has the instincts of a hunting dog. He knows exactly when the time is ripe for the “international; community” to step in and save his neck from being slit by his political opponents, which is just about everyone.

He can count on the U.N. delegation to blame Israel for anything and everything at a time when the Obama administration and even most foreign media are having a hard time blaming the “occupation” for attempted murders in Tel Aviv, Petach Tikvah and Kiryat Gat, let alone the “occupied territory.”

Abbas also knows very well that if he breaks off security arrangements with Israel, he has to make sure his will is in order and that a burial plot is ready.

He also knows that Israel always deals from weakness when international leaders get involved.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu does not have many cards to play and that he also cannot make much more concessions.

He may have to promise that no new Jewish outposts will be built, even if it means preventing a new community near the location where the Henkins were murdered.

There are a lot of things the Prime Minister “should” do, such as reinstating roadblocks and checkpoints in Judea and Samaria, but like it or not, he cannot do it. Israel cannot roll back concessions, at least not now.

It has to wait until the Palestinian Authority regime totally disintegrates, and that is not going to happen before the United Nations fulfills Abbas wish and flies to his rescue next week.

Report: Hamas Terrorists to Get Light Plea Bargains So Shin Bet Won’t Expose Interrogation Methods

Wednesday, October 7th, 2015

(JNi.media) Back in September 2014, it was revealed that a joint Shin Bet (Shabak) and IDF operation exposed and foiled an extensive military infrastructure of Hamas, which operated throughout Judea and Samaria, recruiting military units and carrying out attacks against Israeli targets. The infrastructure operations, controlled by Hamas headquarters in Turkey, involved Hamas members who had been trained abroad, and were placed in Judea and Samaria to carry out terror operations. The joint operation arrested 93 suspects, out of whom 46 were interrogated by the Shin Bet. The operation also captured 24 M16 rifles, six pistols, seven rocket launchers, explosives materials, and about $150,000 in cash.

The newly hatched Hamas underground was involved in the kidnapping of three Jewish boys which led to the 2014 Operation Protective Edge against Gaza.

Now, according to a report in Haaretz, the Shin Bet is demanding that the military prosecution sign plea bargains with the Arab defendants, who will receive disproportionately light sentences, considering this is a case of the largest-scale Hamas infrastructure effort in Judea and Samaria. The report suggests the reason for the light deals has to do with the Shin Bet looking to avoid having its operatives testify in court about the interrogation methods used against detainees in this case.

According to the Shin Bet website, Hamas is highly motivated to open a second front against Israel in Judea and Samaria, as part of its plan to destabilize the Palestinian Authority.

In 1987, after complaints about excessive use of violence, the Landau Commission— a three-man panel set up by the Israeli Government—drew up guidelines condoning “moderate physical pressure” when necessary. In 1994, State Comptroller and later Supreme Court Justice Miriam Ben-Porat found that these regulations were violated and senior Shin Bet commanders did not prevent it. In 1999, the Supreme Court heard petitions against Shin Bet methods, including “forceful and repeated shaking of the suspect’s upper torso, in a manner which causes the neck and head to swing rapidly,” manacling of the suspect in a painful position for a long period of time, and the “frog crouch” consisting of “consecutive, periodical crouches on the tips of one’s toes.” The Court, in a heralded, landmark decision, ruled that the Shin Bet did not have the authority, even under the defense of “necessity,” to use these methods. The Shin Bet claims it now uses only psychological interrogation methods, although B’Tselem and Amnesty International continue to accuse it of using torture.
