Pipe Bomb, Molotov Cocktails Thrown in Hebron, Psagot

Sunday, May 1st, 2016

Terrorists on Sunday night threw a pipe bomb at the fence of the community of Psagot in Binyamin, News 0404 reported. The bomb did not explode and was discovered whole near the fence. Arab terrorists also threw three Molotov cocktails at the fence, which were ignited and caused a local fire. No one was hurt.

Elsewhere, terrorists threw a Molotov cocktail in Hebron, on the road between the local Jewish pharmacy and Gross Square. No one was hurt.

Gross Square is named after New-York born Asher Aharon Gross HY”D, 18, who was stabbed to death by three Arabs at the square on July 7, 1983. An Arab driver who mistook Gross for an Arab brought him to the Alia International Hospital where the doctors noticed his fringes and refused to treat him.

Hebron Launching 6 Day War Jubilee Celebrations Early

Tuesday, April 26th, 2016

Two Ministers, two Deputy Ministers, four Knesset Members, Israel’s Chief Rabbi and other VIPs joined leaders of Judea, Samaria, and Hebron, three Biblical patriarchs and three matriarchs, as well as 30,000 “regular” Jews in marking the Passover holiday in Hebron and kicking off the jubilee celebrations of the return of the Jewish people to the city of our forefathers and to all the rest of the Land of Israel.

The celebrations of 50 years since the Jewish nation has received the divine gift of completing the conquest of western Eretz Israel, in the Six-Day War of 1967, have begun a little early, to prepare us to be ushered into the actual jubilee, ending fifty years that started on June 5th, 1967, the 26th of Iyar, 5727. In fact, next year will mark four miraculous events in Jewish history, starting with the first Zionist Congress, launching modern political Zionism, 120 years ago in 1897; followed by the 100th anniversary of the November 2, 2017 Balfour Declaration, in which the world’s most dominant empire at the time recognized the Jews’ right to a homeland in the Land of Israel; followed by all the nations of the world 70 years ago, on November 29, 2017, voting to establish a Jewish state in the Land of Israel; and then, at the conclusion of the process, the divine gift, 50 years ago.

And while leftwing groups are laboring even as we speak on a multi-million dollar propaganda campaign for 2017 dubbed “Save Israel-Stop the Occupation” (SISO), the folks at Hebron are working on a long gratitude list each Jewish person should contemplate in the coming year (14 months, really).

And so busses filled with Israelis and pilgrims from around the world took part in the Hebron festivities Monday, visited the rarely opened Isaac Hall in the Tomb of the Patriarchs and Matriarchs, experienced the multi-million dollar 4D presentation on Hebron at the Beit Hadassah Hebron museum and were entertained by musicians Chaim Yisrael, Udi Davidi, Uzziah Zadok, Itzik Dadya, and Binny Landau.

The visiting leaders addressed the crowd from a large stage situated in the Machpelah plaza.

Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked (Habayit Hayehudi) said, “I am certain that in this city Jews are going to continue to live, as the saying goes ‘from antiquity to eternity.’ This spirit, which brought you to settle in the City of our Fathers inspired others to climb other hilltops and raise their new communities… and this same spirit will lead us, your representatives in the Knesset and government, to give you support, to fulfill your great vision — the vision of settling the land.”

Deputy Minister of Regional Cooperation Ayoob Kara (Likud) addressed the Arab population of Hebron in Arabic, saying, “Only under Israeli sovereignty in this area will your rights and your lives be insured. Without Israel there is ISIS.”

Chief Rabbi David Lau spoke said, “This large and holy crowd has gathered here to begin the jubilee celebrations of the liberation of Judea and Samaria… We have come here to mark 50 years that we can finally return, and this time it is a full return because we’ll never have to stand at the [Muslim rulers’ limit of the] ‘7th step’ in order to pray with Mother and Father. As we have merited this, may we merit to have full return and to settle the nation of Israel in its land.”

Tens of Thousands Stream into Hebron for Passover Festival

Monday, April 25th, 2016

Tens of thousands of Jewish civilians, lawmakers and senior rabbis have been streaming into the ancient holy city of Hebron on this third day of Passover for the annual holiday festival celebrating the city’s ancient Jewish heritage.

The Jewish community of Hebron is hosting a celebration at the Cave of the Patriarchs to mark the upcoming half-century year since the restoration of the city to Jewish hands by Israeli forces during the 1967 Six Day War.

Attending Monday’s festivities will be Ashkenazi Chief Rabbi of Israel, Rabbi David Lau, Bayit Yehudi Agriculture Minister Uri Ariel, Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked and Deputy Defense Minister Rabbi Eli Ben Dahan. Also attending will be Likud Deputy Minister of Regional Cooperation Ayoub Kara, a spokesperson said.

Music, refreshments and more have been the order of the day, as the Passover Chol HaMoed festivities erased the frequent tensions felt among Jewish residents in the divided city.

In the wee hours of Monday, Israeli security personnel arrested at least four Hamas terror suspects around Hebron, prior to the day’s events.

Millions of visitors come each year to pray at the Cave of the Patriarchs, burial site of the Biblical forefathers and matriarchs Avraham, Yitzhak, Ya’akov, Sarah, Rivka and Leah (Rachel’s Tomb is located at the entrance to Bethlehem). It is said that even Adam and Eve are interred there.

Muslims also revere the site, since their ancestor, Ishmael, is a son of Avraham.

An Arab terrorist armed with a hatchet attacked an IDF soldier in El Arub, which is between the Gush Etzion junction and Kiryat Arba. The attack happened early Thursday afternoon.

According to Hatzalah, the soldier was hit in the head, but was protected by his helmet and only lightly injured. The terrorist had been hiding in the bushes and attacked as the soldier passed by.

The terrorist was shot and killed by a second soldier who pumped 4 bullets into the terrorist.

Military Prosecutor to Charge with Manslaughter Hebron Medic Who Killed Neutralized Terrorist

Thursday, April 14th, 2016

The military prosecutor in the case against the IDF medic Sergeant A, who on March 24 shot and killed a neutralized terrorist on the ground in Hebron, on Thursday told an IDF court in Jaffa that he plans to indict the accused on manslaughter charges. An earlier statement, made by investigators after the event, suggested they planned to charge the shooter with murder, but the unprecedented public outcry that followed resulted, possibly, with a reduced charge. The majority of Israelis in several recent polls believe there should be no prosecution at all in the case.

Military prosecutor Lt. Col. Adoram Rigler asked the court to extend the on camp arrest of the accused until Monday, when the indictment will supposedly be ready. Apparently there are a few technical details to be hammered out. The prosecution referred to the pathology report on the autopsy that had been conducted on the terrorist’s body, saying it determined that it was the shot made by the accused which killed the terrorist. The autopsy report will hopefully clear up just how many times the terrorist had been shot before the soldier put him out of his misery, and what would have been his chances of survival without the final shot. Rumor has the number of bullets he absorbed in his upper body at seven, before the last one hit him.

The prosecutor also told the court that the B’Tselem video, shot by Imad Abu Shmasia, was examined by a forensics lab and determined to be authentic and unedited.

The soldier’s attorneys objected to the demand for a remand of the clients saying he did not pose a flight risk and there was no justification for his continued on-base arrest, since the investigation—as stated by the prosecution—is all but complete.

As usual, there was a loud group of demonstrators outside the court building, demanding the soldier’s release without a trial, waving signs that read: “He was abandoned in the field.”

Much of the prosecution’s case hinges on the state of mind of the accused during the shooting, namely how much he knew about the neutralizing of the terrorist and the verification that followed his neutralizing. Since he arrived some ten minuets after the incident, the fact that the verification process had been proper may not matter if the defense can establish that the accused was not aware of it, and estimated the terrorist to still be dangerous.

The case will also revolve over the application of the rules of engagement in cases where a suicide bomb is suspected. The prosecution will bring witnesses who will tell the court there hadn’t been any suicide bombers in the entire six months of a terror wave leading up to the shooting. But that may not matter in establishing the state of mind of the accused or the validity of the rules of engagement that include an expectation of a suicide bomb.

Israel Uncensored: Will Israelis be Afraid to Shoot? [audio]

Wednesday, April 6th, 2016

On Sunday knife terror stuck Rosh Ha’ayin with another attempt thwarted at the Tapuach Junction. In both cases the respective Jihadist was arrested without a shot fired. Will Israeli security personnel be afraid to fire their weapons even when necessary following the Hebron incident in which a soldier was arrested on charges of being trigger happy? While Jihadist attacks continue at home and abroad, those events seem to be on the back pages while the media still puts the IDF soldier on page one. Will Israeli citizens pay the price because of the negative hype? Josh discusses all these issues on today’s show.
