One Injured when Arabs Stone Worshipers at Kotel, Netanyahu Capitulates on Temple Mount [video]

Tuesday, June 28th, 2016

On Tuesday morning, Arab rioters on the Temple Mount who presumably found no more Jews or police to attack up there, began throwing stones down at the Jews who were engaged in their morning prayer before the Western Wall. One woman, age 73, was injured lightly and was rushed to Hadassah Ein Karem hospital. (Update: The woman was released from the hospital late Tuesday afternoon).

Once again this week Israel has taught the Arab rioters on the Temple Mount that crime pays, and violent crime pays double. Following two days of violent riots on the sacred grounds, during which Arab youths threw stones and fireworks at security forces, police on Tuesday morning banned the entrance of Jewish and all other non-Muslim visitors, which is what the violent mob was demanding in the first place.

The announcement about the banning of Jews came before the Arabs started throwing rocks down on Jewish worshipers by the Kotel.

The Arabs argued that there had been a status quo according to which on the final ten days of the month of Ramadan no non-Muslim was allowed to set foot on the ground where a scene from dream of the prophet Mohammad took place back in the seventh century (he never actually set foot there).

For two days straight, Arab rioters barricaded themselves inside the Al Aqsa mosque, where they stored stones and fireworks, determined to interrupt the peaceful routine of Jewish visits to the Temple Mount. As soon as the first visitors had entered, Muslim youths, some of them masked, burst out of the mosque, screaming stuff about the supremacy of Allah (He is, apparently, very big) and throwing stones at the frightened visitors and at police. Police and Border Guard pushed back the attackers, and enabled the continued visits.

Israel Police issued a communiqué Monday saying that any attempt to violate the order anywhere in Jerusalem, including in the Old City and on the Temple Mount would be handled “resolutely and firmly,” in order to maintain the status quo allowing members of all religions to be on the Temple Mount. “Jerusalem Police will use all the tools at its disposal to arrest the rioters and to prosecute them to the full extent of the law.”

Nekhtike Tug, goes the Yiddish adage, meaning, roughly, go find the stuff you lost yesterday, or, basically, it wasn’t happening. Because overnight Monday, according to an Israel Radio report, there were talks between the Netanyahu government and the Jordanians, whose Waqf association is the de facto ruler of the sacred compound, and a decision was made to bow to the will of the thugs one more time.

Let it be a lesson to them.

A child was lightly injured on Saturday night after their car was hit by stones near the entrance to Sha’ar Binyamin, north of Jerusalem.

There was some confusion when emergency responders couldn’t find the vehicle near Sha’ar Binyamin.

It turns out, the father drove them directly to the emergency room at Hadassah-Mount Scopus after the attack. The boy was injured from the fragments of glass.

Israelis Kickstart After IDF Wouldn’t Rehab Wounded Soldier Living in Settlement [video]

Sunday, June 5th, 2016

Decorated special forces soldier Sgt. Yehuda Yitzchak Hayisraeli who fought and was critically injured in the 2014 Gaza War, during the courageous attempt to retrieve the late Lt. Hadar Goldin who had been captured and killed by Hamas. Sgt. Yehuda was in a coma for two years, surrounded by his wife and family, who never gave up on him. His son Erez was born and was circumcised while his hero father was still in a coma, an event that focused national attention on the family one more time.

Then a miracle happened and Yehuda came out of the coma, a few months ago. Since then he has been engaged in a grueling and demanding rehab process, where he is re-learning a large variety of basic skills, on the way to full recovery. Eventually the time came for Yehuda to be discharged from the hospital to continue his rehab at home. Like every injured soldier, the defense ministry pays for adjusting his home environment to his rehab needs. But Yehuda is a resident of the community of Ofra in Judea and Samaria, and since the entire region is under a construction freeze in an attempt to please Israel’s many friends in the world, the funds could not be legally transferred to him, no matter how deserving he may be.

The family was dumbfounded at this degree of bureaucratic autism, but a group of Israeli citizens who last week heard about the case in the media decided to come to their aid. They launched a communal fundraising page on the website headstart.co.il, and asked for the equivalent of $156,000, the amount needed to pay for Yehuda’s accommodations. As of Sunday morning, the page has raised $373,061.61 from 7,778 individuals.

On the fundraising page, the organizers have thanked profusely everyone who contributed (including opposition leader MK Isaac Herzog who gave about $300), and declared that the collection will continue, at least until the official expiration time, which is in 26 days. The money will go to provide for Yehuda’s family in the next year or so.

What a wonderful example of community values in face of government deafness. (Click here for an update on the government’s response).

Actor Harrison Ford ‘Lucky To Be Alive’ After Plane Crash

Friday, March 6th, 2015

Actor Harrison Ford is “lucky to be alive” according to the NTSB after being forced to crash-land a small private single-engine plane Thursday shortly after 2 pm local time on a golf course in Venice, California.

Ford’s son, chef Ben Ford, told CNN his father was “battered but okay” following the crash.

Ford reported to Santa Monica Municipal Airport’s air traffic controller the plane’s engine had “lost power” and that he was attempting to turn around and return to Los Angeles, according to an NTSB official who briefed media Thursday night.

The pilot was “absolutely lucky” to have survived the crash, the NTSB official said. A fire department official said medical personnel stabilized Ford’s spine before transporting him to the hospital.

Ford, who was the sole occupant of the aircraft, is listed in fair condition.

“This pilot was an experienced pilot,” the NTSB official said. “This was a vintage plane,” he added. “I’m not sure what idiosyncrasies it might have had.”

The cause of the engine failure is not clear; an investigation has been launched.

United Hatzalah Treats Groom Injured Breaking the Glass

Wednesday, March 5th, 2014

Guests at a wedding in Petach Tikvah last night were shocked as the groom did the unthinkable. Towards the end of the wedding ceremony, he stamped on a glass in the traditional manner, but before his friends and family could shout Mazal Tov, it became apparent that a shard of glass had gone through his shoe and seriously injured his foot. Luckily United Hatzalah volunteers were just a phone call away and arrived on the scene in minutes to provide first aid. The volunteers offered a comprehensive treatment to solve the problem from start to end: they escorted the groom to the nearest emergency room in a United Hatzalah ambulance, expedited his treatment there so he was released in fifteen minutes, and taking him back to his loving new bride, friends and family, where he delicately but defiantly danced the night away.

United Hatzalah President Eli Beer said: “ United Hatzalah is always on call for every kind of emergency and we were happy to be the first on scene to help this man to get back on his feet on his wedding day. We wish the family a hearty Mazal Tov and hope they will never need our services again in the future.”
