Furious Israelis Protest Deadly Arab Terror Attacks in Judea, Samaria

Friday, October 2nd, 2015

Furious Jewish residents of Judea and Samaria came out in force Thursday night to demonstrate against the continuing deadly terror attacks that once again left Israelis dead, and others wounded.

The IDF fanned out to search for the perpetrators, who managed to escape following the attack.

In several locations around Samaria, there were reports of Jewish protesters hurling rocks at Arab motorists driving on the roads, according to the Hebrew-language HaKol HaYehudi website.

Hundreds of Jews poured out of their homes in communities where protests were held in various locations around Judea and Samaria.

Some 150 Jews from Kiryat Arba protested at the entrance to the city near the Harsina neighborhood along Highway 60. The protesters reportedly walked to Hebron and threw stones at some of the Arab homes in the city. Police blocked the mob and prevented the situation from escalating there; the group then began to march towards the nearby Arab towns of Beit Anun and Halhul.

Also at the Givat Assaf Junction and the Gidon Junction on the Alon Highway, hundreds of Jews demonstrated, blocking the movement of Arab vehicles.

Arab terrorists continued their attacks as well, however.

A 28-year-old Jewish woman was injured by Palestinian Arabs who were throwing stones near the Yitzhar Junction. The woman was evacuated to Beilinson Medical Center in Petach Tikva, to be treated for an eye injury.


The Palestinian Authority’s Hebron intelligence chief was also attacked late Thursday night, struck by stone-throwers as he drove through Samaria.

It is unclear who perpetrated the attack, which took place in the exact same spot where Rabbi Eitam Henkin and his wife Na’ama were murdered by Arab terrorists just a few hours earlier.

The intelligence chief’s vehicle was smashed by the rocks and the official himself was injured in the attack. He was taken to a nearby medical center for treatment, according to Ynet. The incident is under investigation.

The IDF has deployed four additional battalions to Judea and Samaria in the wake of the lethal terror attack that took the lives of Rabbi Henkin and his wife Thursday night.

The first of the supplementary units is to arrive on Friday and will assist the existing units in searching for the murderers as well as other terrorists in the region.

Clashes between Hundreds of Arab Demonstrators and IDF Soldiers in Judea and Samaria

Tuesday, September 29th, 2015

(JNi.media) A few locations in Judea and Samaria saw clashes between hundreds of Arab protesters and IDF soldiers throughout the morning and afternoon Tuesday, Israel Radio reported. The stormiest demonstration was in Ramallah, where protesters threw petrol bombs, laid down burning tires and threw stones. Arab sources reported that two demonstrators were slightly injured by rubber bullets. More riots took place in Hebron, Tulkarm and near Rachel’s Tomb in Bethlehem.

Ma’an reported that seven Arabs were injured by rubber bullets on Tuesday as Israeli forces pushed back a rally outside Ramallah in support of the Al-Aqsa Mosque and of Arab security prisoners.

Demonstrators marched from the center of Ramallah to the Jewish town of Beit El. Israeli forces fired tear gas, water canons, and rubber bullets, injuring seven people. There were unconfirmed reports of the IDF using live fire. According to Ma’an, dozens suffered tear gas inhalation.

PLO Executive Committee member Wasil Abu Yousef urged the international community to stop Israeli “restrictions and violations at Al-Aqsa,” which is code for a proposal to permit Jews to pray along the perimeter of the Temple Mount compound, in an arrangement similar to the regulations at the Cave of the Patriarchs in Hebron. A general strike across the PA saw stores closing for two hours in solidarity with the “threatened” mosque.

Amin Shouman, head of a Palestinian prisoners’ committee, said popular mobilization will continue in support of the Al-Aqsa Mosque and Arab security prisoners jailed in Israel.

An Israeli army spokeswoman confirmed that around 300 Arabs marched near Beit El, with Israeli forces using riot dispersal means before firing rubber bullets at the “main instigators.” She also confirmed that seven Arabs were hit.

Left-Wing Media call 24 Terrorist Attacks a ‘Quiet Yom Kippur’

Wednesday, September 23rd, 2015

It apparently was a “quiet” Yom Kippur for Israel’s establishment media because no Jews were seriously injured.

That is the only way to explain reports that Yom Kippur was “relatively quiet,” as termed by Reshet Bet (Voice of Israel) radio, despite at least 24 rock-throwing and firebomb attacks on soldiers and Jewish civilians.

After the holiday ended, the IDF reported that combat soldiers manning a post in the Jordan Valley foiled an attempted attack by a Palestinian Authority terrorist who was carrying an explosive device.

The soldiers arrested him when he approached their guard position, and no one was injured

During the day, Jerusalem Arabs missed their target in a firebombing attack on a Jewish home in the mixed Jewish-Arab Abu Tur neighborhood of Jerusalem.

More than 200 Palestinian Authority terrorists rioted near Hebron and threw rocks at police, and a firebomb was hurled at a Jewish home in Hebron.

Rock-throwing attacks also were reported in Har Homa, a large Jewish neighborhood at the southern edge of Jerusalem.

No injuries or serious property damage was reported, so for the media that are not concerned if Jews are targets of terrorists but not wounded or killed, it was a quiet day.

Diaa Hadid and The NYTimes Fail Again

Wednesday, September 23rd, 2015

It’s practically criminal what the NYTimes is putting out as news.

In their headline and excerpt about Israel which they sent out by email, the now infamous Diaa Hadid (or her editor) wrote:

2 Are Killed in West Bank as Jewish and Muslim Holidays Approach By DIAA HADID Israeli soldiers shot and killed a Palestinian woman at a checkpoint in Hebron on Tuesday, and a Palestinian man was killed by an explosion that the Israeli military described as an accident.

Such questions the original headline raises. Why did IDF troops kill some innocent woman? And how and why did the IDF accidentally blow up some innocent man?

With the most basic and important details left out, the readers are immediately left with a mistaken impression.

Here’s how it should have been written:

2 Suspected Terrorists Are Killed in West Bank as Jewish and Muslim Holidays Approach By DIAA HADID Israeli soldiers shot and killed a Palestinian woman at a checkpoint in Hebron on Tuesday claiming she was approaching a soldier with a knife, and a Palestinian man killed himself in an explosion that the Israeli military described as the premature blast from the explosive device he tried to hurl at ambushed IDF troops.

Such minor changes, yet now the headline and excerpt are actually accurate and truthful.

Female Terrorist Shot in Hebron Stabbing Attack on IDF Soldier

Tuesday, September 22nd, 2015

A female Palestinian Arab terrorist was shot at around 8 am Tuesday while trying to attack an Israeli soldier at the security checkpoint between Jewish and Arab parts of Hebron.

As she lifted her knife to stab the soldier, his fellow troops opened fire, reportedly shooting the attacker in the leg.

The terrorist failed in her mission to wound the soldier and all others were safe as well, the IDF reported.

“A Palestinian attempted to stab an IDF soldier at a military position in Hebron. IDF forces responded, fired towards the perpetrator and identified a hit,” the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit said in a statement. “There were no injuries to soldiers.”

A local source said people in the area were warned not to approach the woman out of concern she might have been carrying a bomb in her bag.

Soldiers subsequently shot her bag to ensure there were no explosives hidden within.

The terrorist was treated on the scene by an IDF medic and then evacuated by the Red Crescent emergency response service to a nearby medical facility, where she is listed in serious condition.



Arab Terrorist Kills Himself in Failed Terror Attack

Tuesday, September 22nd, 2015

Not quite making it into the category of suicide bomber, an Arab terrorist was killed when the bomb he was about the throw blew up on him.

On Monday evening, around 11:30 PM, Arabs set up an ambush on the road connecting Negohot and Adorayim in the southern Mount Hebron area, according to a Tazpit report.

The Arabs piled up rocks onto the road hoping an Israeli driver would crash into them, at which point they would apparently attack the driver directly.

An Israeli driver from Negohot saw the pile of rocks just in time, and managed to swerve around them. He then called in the army.

As an IDF jeep arrived, the IDF soldiers heard a loud explosion.

Searching the area, the soldiers discovered the remains of an Arab terrorist who was about to throw a bomb at them.

The explosive detonated prematurely.


Netanyahu Pledges to Beef Up Security at Patriarchs’ Cave in Hebron

Sunday, September 6th, 2015

Israel will do its “utmost so that Jews will be able to go everywhere safely, especially to the Tomb of the Patriarchs,” Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu told the Cabinet Sunday.

Tens of thousands of Jews visit the site, known, in Hebrew as Ma’arat HaMachpelah, for Slichot prayers between Rosh HaShanah and Yom Kippur.

It is the burial site of the forefathers Avraham, Isaac (Yitzchak) and Jacob as well as Sarah, Rebecca (Rivkah) and Leah. Rachel, Yaakov’s second wife, is buried at Rachel’s Tomb (Kever Rachel), which also attracts tens of thousands of people between the two High Holidays.

The Patriarch’s Cave also is the traditional burial place of Adam and Eve.

Palestinian Authority terrorists have escalated attacks at the two sites in recent months.
