Hebron Attack Foiled

Thursday, July 2nd, 2015

An Arab was caught by Border Police on his way to committing a terror attack in Hebron on Thursday night, according to the Police Spokesperson.

The Border Police noticed an 19-year-old Arab man approaching them suspiciously. They ordered him to stop, and from a safe distance had him show them what he was carrying – which turned out to be a large knife.

The man was arrested and during the initial questioning admitted he planned to stab a policeman or a Jewish civilian.

PA Media Accuse Settlers of ‘Mission Impossible’

Monday, May 18th, 2015

Jews from the Hebron area “destroyed and uprooted hundreds of olive saplings” northeast of Hebron on Sunday, according to the Ma’an News Agency, based n Bethlehem.

This is the same Ma’an that constantly reports of IDF “attacks” that never happened. It also reports of Jewish visits to the Temple Mount as “invasions” or “storming” of the holy site.

Eighty acres?

That is 880 yards by 440 yards. The average olive orchard consists of approximately 120 trees per acre, which means the settlers roamed through 9,600 trees, and no Arab called the IDF to stop them?

The village where the alleged vandalism took place is the same place where settlers supposedly uprooted 1,000 trees last month.

Sunday’s alleged vandalism was the fourth time the village’s olive orchards have been run over by settlers, according to Ma’an.

The real problem with these reports is that foreign media repeat them without any verification.

Israeli Political Leaders Praise the Lifetime Work of Late Hebron Rabbi Moshe Levinger

Monday, May 18th, 2015

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu sent a letter of condolences to the Levinger family on the passing of the late leader Rabbi Moshe Levinger, who was known for his life work in establishing the modern Jewish community of Hebron and as one of the founder of the Gush Emunim settlement movement.

Rabbi Levinger, who had been battling a serious illness, passed away at age 80, on Saturday, May 16 in Hebron.

“There is great symbolism that Rabbi Levinger passed away on the eve of Jerusalem Day; he leaves behind him a well-established legacy and many students are dedicated to taking root in our Land,” wrote the Israeli prime minister.

This year, thousands took to the streets of Jerusalem Day to commemorate the liberation and reunification of the Jewish people’s ancient capital 48 years ago. The public holiday also marks how for the first time in thousands of years, the holiest city in Judaism came entirely under Jewish sovereignty.

“Rabbi Levinger’s name will be forever linked with the movement for renewed Jewish settlement in Hebron and other areas of the country where our patriarchs walked thousands of years ago. He was an outstanding example of a generation that sought to realize the Zionist dream, in deed and in spirit, after the Six Day War,” pointed out Netanyahu.

“You believed with all your heart that by rebuilding Hebron, you would also re-build Jerusalem, and out of that belief you acted to ensure that not only would Jerusalem be redeemed, but so would Kiryat Arba in Hebron,” the Israeli President Reuven Rivlin further eulogized at Rabbi Levinger’s funeral in Hebron today, May 17.

Rabbi Levinger, a prominent student of Rabbi Tzvi Yehuda Kook at the Mercaz Harav Yeshiva in Jerusalem, was described by Rivlin as coming from a unique Jerusalem family. “You grew up in a household with rare religious and spiritual depth. A house with wide-ranging knowledge, a loyalty to the concept of Torah and science…” said Rivlin.

The Israeli president also noted that the first donor to the Hebron Yeshiva, under Rabbi Levinger’s leadership, was none other than Israel’s first prime minister, David Ben Gurion, who gave 100 Israeli liras (the old Israeli currency).

“Today, as we accompany you on your last path, I cannot but remember your struggle not only for life here, but for the right to be buried in the cemetery here in Hebron. Today these graves here will be joined by the grave of Rabbi Levinger one of our most treasured sons and founders of the Jewish community here,” concluded Rivlin, whose own mother’s family lived in Hebron before the Arab massacre of 67 Jews in 1929.

A Great Leader of Israel has Passed – Rabbi Moshe Levinger, obm

Sunday, May 17th, 2015

The Women in Green movement is pained by the great loss to the People of Israel upon the passing of Rabbi Moshe Levinger, father of renewed Jewish settlement throughout the Land of Israel after the Six Day War.

Rabbi Levinger blazed the trail for glorious settlement throughout Judea and Samaria; he was the driving spirit that inspired the great movement together with his wife Rabbanit Miriam. The trailblazers of settlement in Binyamin and Samaria were his students.

His faith, courage, audacity and the love for the People of Israel resulted in the first Jewish community in Judea. He established a city that carries all of the banners of Zionism: settlement, absorption of immigrants and security. Thanks to him, Kiryat Arba-Hevron is a symbol of harmonious life among religious and secular, immigrants and long-time citizens from all sectors of the People.

Rabbi Levinger was a symbol of simplicity, always traveled by hitchhiking or by bus, despised materialism, was always on a mission, always active for the People of Israel and the Land of Israel. He did not engage in small talk, everything always revolved around the great goal – the Land of Israel.

He died on the eve of the anniversary of the liberation of Jerusalem. He always corrected us and said: the liberation of the Land of Israel.

A very great spiritual presence, who knew how to combine the vision with reality, has gone from us.

May we be comforted in the building of the Land of Israel

Rabbi Moshe Levinger ZT”L

Saturday, May 16th, 2015

Rabbi Moshe Levinger, born in Jerusalem in 1935, passed away on Shabbat, on the eve of Jerusalem Reunification Day.

Rabbi Levinger was a leading figure in the Religious-Zionist camp and helped organize the resettlement of Gush Etzion after 1967. Gush Etzion had been emptied of Jews following the 1948 Kfar Etzion massacre. He was a founder of the Gush Emunim movement.

Rabbi Levinger is most remembered for reestablishing Jewish life in Hebron and establishing the town of Kiryat Arba.

He began the process in 1968, when he rented some rooms in a Hebron hotel, and then refused to leave until the government allowed him to move to a former army base, which ultimately became the town of Kiryat Arba.

Rabbi Levinger, married to Miriam, had 11 children and 50 grandchildren.

The funeral will be held on Sunday at 12:30 PM, starting at Maarat Hachpelah (The Tomb of the Patriarchs) in Hebron.

Gag order removed:

The Shabak reports that the Arab driver in Thursday afternoon’s terror attack near Alon Shvut has admitted to his intentions.

Arfaaih admitted he ran over the children on purpose, to commit a terror attack, and the Shabak are investigating if incitement from the Palestinian Authority on the Internet and Facebook inspired him to commit his attack today.
