Settling and Sovereignty is the Zionist Answer – Hebron and Gush Etzion First

Tuesday, July 1st, 2014

As a Zionist answer to the despicable murder of our three boys, a pioneering group of Jews headed by Women in Green went up to Givat Oz – a hilltop overlooking Tzomet HaGush – in order to create a new Jewish presence in the area.

As since the beginning of Zionism, the land of Israel is sometimes built with blood and tears. The hill is adjacent to the historical community of Migdal Eder, which was dismantled in 1927, in a forest near to Bet Fajjar, on approved State land.

The pioneers cleaned out an abandoned structure on the site and settled it, calling upon the government to immediately apply sovereignty, starting with Hevron and Gush Etzion. This call was made by the Women and Green, together with the Professors for a Strong Israel, headed by Aryeh Eldad and Matot Arim. Davidi Perl, mayor of Gush Etzion, together with his deputy, Moshe Savil, came to bless the new Givat Oz endeavor. The mayor said, “Our answer is clear and determined – we will continue to expand and build here and now. Here we will build a new community and many more in the near future. We will build and settle and hold strong to the land.”

The local police chief and army commanders came to visit and promised to safeguard the place.

This morning there will be Tefilat Shacharit at 6am. At 10am the public is invited to come and help refurbish the building (painting and cleaning).

Directions: Drive to Tzomet HaGush and turn toward Migdal Oz and Bet Fajjar. After a few hundred meters turn right onto the dirt path and continue up into the forest.

Hebron Residents Demand Kawasme Clan’s Expulsion

Tuesday, July 1st, 2014

Residents of Jewish Hebron are demanding the government expel the entire Kawasme Clan from Hebron to Gaza.

The extended Kawasme family have a long history of violent terror attacks. Marwan Kawasme is part of the terror cell that kidnapped and murdered EYal Yifrach, Gil-ad Shaar and Naftali Frenkel.

Yair Shreider, a Hebron resident and member of the Residents Committee (Vaad) of Judea said that the Kawasme clan is an “incubator for terrorism”.

Hebron residents are saying there is no way this murder can by without a serious response.

The Jewish Press adds: In Gaza, the Kawasme Clan would likely receive a hero’s welcome. Expulsion to Syria would be a far better choice.

Arabs Stoning IDF as They Search North of Hebron

Monday, June 30th, 2014

As IDF troops search areas north of Hebron for the kidnapped boys Naftali Fraenkel, Gil-ad Shaar and Eyal Yifrach, Arabs from the Halhul area are throwing stones and attacking the troops.

IDF Search Update

Friday, June 27th, 2014

The IDF search for kidnapped boys, Eyal Yifrach, Gilad Shear and Naftali Fraenkel continues on.

Overnight the IDF arrested nine Palestinian Unity Government (PUG) suspects, and searched 49 sites and homes in the Hebron area.

The army found handguns and explosives in last night’s search.

In the village of Idna an explosive device was thrown at the soldiers. None were injured.

The government has decided, that, even with Ramadan approaching, the IDF will continue the search unabated.

Last night the IDF released the names of two of the Hamas terrorists believed to have been involved in the kidnapping. They hope this will provide more incentive for the PUG population to turn them in.

Shalit Terrorist Recaptured, Believed to Have Murdered Baruch Mizrahi

Monday, June 23rd, 2014

Israel Police have arrested Ziad Awad, one of the 1,027 terrorists released two-and-a-half years ago in exchange for IDF hostage Gilad Shalit, on suspicion that Awad was responsible for the murder of Baruch Mizrahi  on Passover eve near Hebron.

Mizrahi, a senior police officer, was on his way to a holiday Seder meal when he was ambushed and murdered, reportedly by Awad, a resident of Idna, an Arab village near Hebron.

Mizrahi’s wife was also wounded in the attack.

Police said Monday that they unearthed the signs that identified Awad as Mizrahi’s killer during the manhunt for Eyal Yifrah, Gil-Ad Shayer and Naftali Frenkel.

Evidence includes DNA samples, finger prints and other incriminating material were collected at the attack scene.

An indictment was filed today (Jun. 23) against Awad for murder and attempted murder. In addition, Awad’s son, A Adin Awad (18), was also arrested for abetting the attack by helping his father flee the scene.

Ziad Awad (L) and his son Izz Eddin (R) arriving to Ofer Mlitary court on June 23, 2014. They were arrested on May 7 by the Israel Police’s elite counter-terrorism unit in collaboration with the Shin Bet security service for the April 14 shooting of B aruch Mizrachi, the 47-year-old father of five. The senior Awad is accused of carrying out the shooting, while his son allegedly assisted him in planning the shooting and coordinating the escape.

Noam Shalit, who pressured successive Israeli governments to make the lopsided prisoner swap instead of demanding action by international human rights groups, told YNet on the arrest, “I didn’t know that one of the terrorists freed in the deal killed Baruch Mizrachi. It wasn’t me that put together the list of prisoners to release.”

Shalit added, “We didn’t demand the release of these prisoners or others.”

Here is an ad from the Free Gilad Shalit campaign, consisting of former Shabak chiefs demanding the release of terrorists, and even saying they won’t pose a danger:

Too many of those involved in freeing these terrorists deny their responsibility.
