Rivlin Tells Settler Leaders ‘We Need Iron Wall’ against Terror

Monday, August 24th, 2015

President Reuven Rivlin has not changed his stripes.

The long-time Likud nationalist hosted leaders of Judea and Samaria (Yesha) Monday and spoke in terms that washed away recent hints that his new office has shoved into acting like a shadow of Shimon Peres.

He praised Jews for living in Judea and Samaria and stated:

The settlement of the land of Israel is an expression of that right, our historical right, our national right, stemming from a love for the land of Israel, from recognition of our roots, which come together here.

His predecessor Peres never said such words nor did he dare visit Heron, as President Rivlin did last February to the chagrin of left-wing leaders.

In his reception on Monday of settler leaders, including Yesha chairman Avi Roeh, Rivlin called for an “iron wall” against the increasing terrorism that has plagued Judea and Samaria in recent weeks.

The mention of the word “wall” will send Boycott Israel activists and other leftists up the wall with accusations that the President was calling for what they see as a virtual “Apartheid wall,” which would discriminate against terrorists and take away their “right” to kill and main in the name of “resistance” against the “occupation.”

Rivlin said:

Over the past months and especially over the last few days, the communities of Judea and Samaria have faced very serious terror attacks….

We must be an iron wall, a protective shield, against those who seek to rise up against us. At the same time, we must remember that our struggle is not a struggle for the sake of struggle. We are fighting for our lives, for the continued growth of the settlements, a struggle for development, work, and prosperity….

I love the land of Israel with all my heart. I have never and will never give up on this land. For me, our right to this land is not a matter of political debate. It is a basic fact of modern Zionism. We must not give anyone the sense that we are in any doubt about our right to our land.

Yesha chairman Roeh said, ” We came here both to present before you the difficult situation in which we find ourselves. In Judea and Samaria, more than 400,000 citizens of the State of Israel live, for whom the development and the prosperity of the State is our daily concern. The building freeze and the halting of future planning in our communities, harms our very existence and our children’s future.”

Alleged Arab Arsonist Accused of Torching Center After Being Fired

Sunday, August 16th, 2015

Hebron resident Mohanned Qawasme, 27, was indicted Sunday in Jerusalem District Court in connection with torching the VIEW events Center in the capital in revenge for being fired.

Qawasme was indicted on charges of arson, resisting arrest, illegally entering Israel, identity theft and forging documents, the District Attorney’s Office announced in a statement.

The indictment by the Jerusalem District Attorney’s Office came in connection with the August 9 arson attack on the VIEW Events Center in the Talpiot section of the capital.

Court documents accuse Qawasme of igniting fire in an oil tank area used for storage next to the events center. According to the documents, Qawasme torched the center in revenge for having been dismissed as an employee at the center some three months earlier.

The blaze caused hundreds of thousands of shekels in damage to the contents of the storage area.

One of the employees at the center noticed the flames and called the fire department in time for firefighters to extinguish the blaze before it could spread to nearby buildings.

Meanwhile, Qawasme had already begun employment at a different events center in Jerusalem, according to court documents. When he saw police approaching, he tried to escape, but was caught by officers at the scene, the indictment alleged.

The district attorney’s office requested in the indictment that the court extend Qawasme’s remand until the conclusion of the trial.

Israeli Military Medics Rescue Palestinian Arab Girl in Hebron

Thursday, July 30th, 2015

An Israeli military medical team rescued a Palestinian Authority Arab girl Thursday in Hebron who suddenly went into respiratory distress.

The team, serving with the Border Guard Police, responded to an emergency call from the family who said the child was having trouble breathing, according to Israel’s Channel 2 TV.

Upon arrival paramedic Sgt. Shai Chen also found that the girl’s pulse was irregular. He quickly hooked her up to oxygen, speaking to calm her down as he did so.

“I told her I was with her and that everything is fine,” he said, adding that he was able to stabilize her condition after she started receiving oxygen.

The Arab family thanked the medic and the emergency response unit for its quick assistance. “We were given care and slowly her breathing returned to normal,” family members said.

Fighters on the scene transferred the child for further treatment by medics from the Red Crescent emergency service, who arrived later.

“The entire family thanked us,” a spokesperson for the Border Guard Police said. This is not the first case in which a paramedic has provided primary care and life-saving intervention for local Arabs. In recent months, battalion medic Sgt. Krissy Lidor saved the lives of three residents.

Hebron Police Destroys 3 Tons of Marijuana

Tuesday, July 28th, 2015

(JNi.media) The Palestinian Authority’s Hebron police officials on Monday morning set fire to about 3 tons of Marijuana valued at $50 million, seized in an operation over the past few months, Palestinian Authority media sources reported Tuesday.

Hebron governor Kamal Ahmed praised the efforts of his police force, and called for joint efforts against the “drug disease” which, according to Ahmed, is part of the Israeli occupation’s attempts to destabilize the Palestinian society.

Raid Dudin, who heads the PA’s Hebron Police Department drug fighting unit, said the marijuana that was destroyed was “30 times stronger” than regular marijuana, thanks to the efforts of “an Israeli scientist” who improved the species.

Dudin did not specify which method was used to determine the strength of the marijuana.

Israeli police have also detected a rise in the cultivation of marijuana in Judea and Samaria in recent years. Police investigators have uncovered a number of large marijuana production labs in those areas, as well as small labs used by residents for private consumption. The police attribute the increase to the shortages across the country.
