Hebron Police Arrest Groom on Wedding Day, Very Pregnant Bride Taken to Hospital

Saturday, January 3rd, 2015

Israeli police stationed in Hebron watched as the Arab wedding procession drove by and then noticed something strange, according to a Tazpit report.

The car the bride and groom were driving had Israeli license plates, but all the other vehicles in the wedding procession had Palestinian Authority plates.

A quick computer check determined that the wedding vehicle had been stolen from the town of Kiryat Gat.

Police stopped the wedding procession and pulled over the happy couple’s vehicle to talk with the groom and his very pregnant bride on their way to getting married.

The bride said she didn’t feel well from the stress, the police called it in, and a Red Crescent ambulance came and took her to the hospital.

The groom on the other hand was taken to the police station for interrogation regarding the stolen Israeli vehicle he was driving.

When he gets out of jail they might already be handing out cigars.

Shots Fired at Palestinian Authority Hamas Legislator

Friday, December 12th, 2014

Palestinian Authority gunmen fired shots at the home and car of PA legislator Azzam Salhab in Hebron, journalist Khaled Abu Toameh reported on Twitter.

No was injured .

Israeli security forces have arrested Salhab several times, and he was one of more than 50 Arabs who were rounded up after last June’s kidnapping of three Israeli yeshiva students, who were murdered by their captors.

Hundreds of Arabs Riot at Kiryat Arba-Hebron

Thursday, December 11th, 2014

Hundreds of Palestinian Authority Arabs are rioting at this hour between Kiryat Arba and Hebron following the death of PA Minister Ziad Abu Ein in clashes with the IDF in Samaria.

Rioters are hurling rocks and firebombs at soldiers and burning tires on the road between the two communities.

No injuries have been reported as of 9 a.m. Thursday.

Video footage of Wednesday’s protest show segments of the standoff between Abu Ein, who led a protest march towards the Jewish community of Adei Ad, and soldiers.

The Palestinian Authority claims soldiers beat Ein, but the only physical contact that can be seen is a soldier shoving him.

The IDF is on high alert for riots throughout Judea and Samaria on Thursday, when Abu Ein is to buried near Ramallah.

PA Sniper Gunman Shoots at Jewish Driver on Highway 60 near Hebron

Friday, November 28th, 2014

A Palestinian Authority gunman shot bullet holes in the door of the car of a Jewish motorist on Highway 60 near Hebron Thursday, but the driver, Israel Zaeera, escaped injury.

“A tremendous miracle happened here,” he said.

It was the second attempt by Arab terrorists to shoot and kill Jews in two days. As reported here yesterday, an Arab gunman took potshots at Jewish drivers in Samaria, and bullet shells were found in the area. No one was injured.

In both cases, the attackers fled.

The shootings represent a serious escalation in the motivation of “lone wolves” to kill Jews. The IDF is beefing up patrols, but soldiers cannot be on every mile of highways in Judea and Samaria.

Friday morning, a 17-year-old Arab girl was caught with a knife that she was planning to use to stab a security guard at the Patriarchs’ Cave in Hebron.

IDF on Manhunt for Arab Terrorists Trying to Gun Down Jewish Drivers

Thursday, November 27th, 2014

Police and the IDF are conducting a massive manhunt Thursday for one or more Palestinian Authority Arabs who tried to gun down Jewish drivers in Samaria Thursday evening.

No one was injured in the attempted murders, but bullet shells were found in the area of the Doar Junction in the Binyamin region.

Despite the use of live fire, rocks still remain a popular way to terrorize drivers in the hopes of causing a fatal accident, as happened in the past. One of the favorite rock-throwing spots continues to be the village of Azoon, on the road between Kfar Saba and the communities of Ginot-Karnei Shomron and Kedumim in Samaria. Several rocks damaged passing cars on Thursday, but no injuries were reported.

The IDF frequently beefs up patrols around Azoon but usually only after attacks.

In Hebron soldier stopped an Arab driver near the Jewish community in the city and found a sub-machine gun and ammunition. The man is being questioned by security officials.

 

Listen To Sarah

Tuesday, November 18th, 2014

First published: Jewish Business News.

I’m writing this about half an hour after having heard the news of the murder of at least four Jews who were praying in a synagogue in a Haredi neighborhood in West Jerusalem. If anyone has had any delusions about this not being a religious war, and anything but a religious war, one need only connect the images that are emerging from this morning’s massacre of four Jewish men in the middle of their morning prayer to the images of Jews massacred in Hebron, in 1929.

In both instances, and in so many others, many of them in just the past few weeks, it was always an enraged, maddened Arab attacker, having been stuffed to the gills with hate by his environment—real and virtual—who exited civilization to become the avenging angel of whatever god he imagined was blessing this horror.

Being a pragmatic person, I, like so many of you, immediately started thinking of, well, what to do next. One really has to be nearly as mad as this morning’s two grocery workers-turned murdering butchers, to suggest they went on their murder spree to advance the cause of independence for their downtrodden Palestinian brothers and sisters. Clearly, they were out to kill as many Jews as they could before some policeman managed to shoot them dead. They were driven by religious hatred, determined to strike at the conquering enemy, wherever they could find him.

They must have talked about it beforehand. Schemed just how to acquire a gun, collect and hide butcher knives, coordinate their attack so as to inflict maximum damage before the unavoidable end. They were seeking only one thing: kill as many Jews as they could, while they still could. They had no concern for their own well being or even their lives. They sought death, willingly, lovingly.

Over the past two decades, the imaginations of a billion and a half Muslims have been ignited by a call to arms the likes of which they had not experienced since the crusades. With 9/11, followed by the emergence of Muslim zeal everywhere on the planet, and recently with the undeniable rise of the new caliphate in Syria and Iraq, Muslims young and old are awash in orgiastic fantasies of the rebirth of their old glory.

This is not a conspiracy, nor is this the actual wish of most Muslims in the world, it’s a fantasy. And the longer Western countries, including Israel, continue to respond to events around us as if they were localized emergencies, to be solved, managed, contained – the fantasy will grow more powerful.

Already we hear the president of Egypt accusing the Turkish secret service of supporting Muslim terrorists. And we’ve known for years of Pakistani secret service support for the Taliban and, by extension, Al Qaeda. The secret services of Muslim countries represent the vanguards of these nations. They’re not only living the fantasy in their everyday lives, they also know how far it can be taken if only they could master whole countries and their weapons.

Left unchecked, this Muslim fantasy will only fester and grow beyond anything our leaders in the west can imagine. I suspect that every erupted murder episode like this morning’s attack on Jews in prayer represents hundreds, perhaps thousands of others, yet unquenched.

Unfortunately, the only way to end this fantasy before it becomes so big it will envelope whole countries, is to crush it.

Which brings me to our beautiful matriarch, Sarah.

Sarah saw through Ishmael, the offspring of her slave girl Hagar and her husband, Abraham. He was up to no good, either plotting to rape her son Isaac or kill him, depending on which interpreter you prefer.

At another point, an angel of God told Hagar exactly who her son, Ishmael, father of all the Arabs was: “This son of yours will be a wild man, as untamed as a wild donkey! He will raise his fist against everyone, and everyone will be against him. Yes, he will live in open hostility against all his relatives.” (Gen, 16:12)

Biblical prophesies can be so annoying when they come true right in front of your eyes.

Sarah was no fool. She was, actually, the greatest prophet of her time. So she ordered her husband, Abraham, to get rid of the kid and his mother. Chase them out, she told him, in no uncertain terms.

She had no delusions about Ishmael.

This was the hardest moment in Abraham’s life. He just couldn’t being himself to do something this cruel. He resisted. He wouldn’t do it.

And so, according to our biblical account, God intervened:

God told Abraham, “Do not be upset over the boy and your maid. Do whatever Sarah tells you.” (Gen. 21:12)

And so Abraham, finally, obeyed his wife. There was no discussion of rehabilitation for the boy, no talk of cultural assimilation. He had to go.

I have no idea what will happen next in our war-torn Middle East and in the rest of the world. I suspect Sarah’s command still seems too harsh to most of us, myself included. It’s one thing to chase a woman and her son out into the desert, but what do you do with millions of Muslims? How do you recover from something like that? It’s one mad fantasy touching on another, evoking a third.

But if you’d like to know what our great grandmother Sarah, if she woke up today, would have told us, I can assure you, she would have said: “Get rid of that slave woman and her son, for that woman’s son will never share in the inheritance with my son Isaac.” (Ge. 12:10)

Arab Terrorist Tried to Pose as Israeli Hitchhiker

Thursday, November 13th, 2014

An Arab terrorist who police nabbed on Wednesday before he could stab a Jew posed as a hitchhiker but gave away his disguise when he stumbled in Hebrew as a Jewish driver offered him a ride.

The Jewish driver notified police of the suspicious “hitchhiker,” and officers arrived at the bus stop near the Jewish community of Dolev in Samaria. After a quick search, they discovered he was carrying a knife and a screwdriver.

He confessed to police that he was planning to ride to stab Jews on his way Jerusalem.

In Hebron, a man in his 20 raised the suspicion of Border Police officers at the Cave of the Patriarchs, where stabbing attempts are frequent.

The man was searched and was found to have been carrying a commando knife.

He showed signs of having drunk alcohol, which is forbidden by Muslim law, which does not recognize the Israeli law against carrying knives to carry out terrorist attacks.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu this week ordered all security units to go on high alert to try to prevent the recent wave of terrorism from spreading.
