Rock-Throwing Resumes on Highway 443 to Jerusalem

Wednesday, August 26th, 2015

Palestinian Authority rock-throwing terrorists returned to action Wednesday morning and threw stone and rocks at passing Israeli cars on Highway 443, which connects Jerusalem with Modi’in.

No injuries were reported, so most media source have ignored the attacks.

After all, they were harmless.

Palestinian Arab Stabber Identified, But Terror Affiliation Unclear

Monday, August 17th, 2015

The Shin Bet (General Security Service) has identified the Palestinian Arab terrorist who stabbed a Border Guard Police officer at the Tapuach junction earlier today as 25-year-old Mahmad Amsha, a resident of Samaria. But his “terror credentials” are still unclear.

Amsha lived in a village southwest of Jenin, according to the Shin Bet, and was a “lone wolf” attacker, unaffiliated with any recognized terror organization. Arab media reported Amsha was age 22 and a member of the Islamic Jihad terror organization, however.

Around midday Monday, (Aug. 17), Amsha approached a Border Guard Police officer guarding the Tapuach junction, saying he didn’t feel well and asking for medical assistance, according to the IDF spokesperson’s unit.

“When he got within a close range of the forces, he pulled out a knife and attempted to stab an officer,” the IDF said in a statement. “The officer was lightly injured and managed to fight off the assailant. The forces on site responded immediately, firing towards the attacker.”

Amsha subsequently died of his wounds, despite receiving treatment by IDF medics on site.

In its response, the Palestinian Authority warned in a statement: “Israel is executing our people in cold blood and the international community should stop it before the situation explodes.”

Monday’s attack was nearly identical to a similar attack in the same spot on Saturday by another Palestinian Authority Arab who likewise stabbed an IDF soldier in the back after he had turned to get him the water the terrorist had asked for, saying he was thirsty.

In that instance as well, other soldiers at the scene acted swiftly to neutralize the stabber, who later died of his gunshot wounds.

IDF Soldiers Foil Terrorist Stabbing, Neutralize Attacker in Samaria

Monday, August 17th, 2015

IDF soldiers foiled an attempted terror attack by a Palestinian Authority Arab terrorist Monday at the Tapuach junction in Samaria (Shomron), north of Jerusalem.

The terrorist attempted to stab a Border Guard Police officer who was standing guard at the junction, approximately the same location where a Palestinian Arab terrorist stabbed another soldier this past Saturday.

“A short while ago a Palestinian suspect approached the forces guarding the Tapuach junction, asking for help and medical assistance,” the IDF spokesperson’s unit explained in an SMS text statement to media.

“When he got within a close range of the forces, he pulled out a knife and attempted to stab an officer. The officer was lightly injured and managed to fight off the assailant. The forces on site responded immediately, firing towards the attacker.”

The terrorist reportedly died of his wounds, but this has not yet been confirmed.

Shomron Regional Council Yossi Dagan responded to the event with a strong statement of appreciation to the military and a call for the government to publicly support security forces as they enforce law and order in Judea and Samaria.

“We thank the security forces for their swift action,” Dagan said. “I call upon the prime minister to publicly support the soldiers for their decisive moves that without doubt saved the the lives of many — both civilians and soldiers — who were present at the scene [of the attack.]”

Bennett: Palestinian Terrorists Have Reached New Moral Bankruptcy

Saturday, August 15th, 2015

Bayit Yehudi party chairman and Education Minister Naftali Bennett said Saturday night that Palestinian Authority Arab terrorists have reached a new “low” in their attacks on Israeli soldiers.

“Palestinian [terrorists] have reached a new moral bankruptcy with their new heroes: terrorist who seek water from soldiers and then pay them back by attempting to stab them to death,” Bennett said.

The statement came in response to a day in which there were two separate attacks on Israeli police and soldiers. One attack came after a Palestinian Arab asked for water — when the soldier turned to get him a drink, the terrorist pulled out a knife and stabbed the soldier in the back.

The second attack took place during a routine security check at a junction near the Huwara checkpoint. In both cases, the terrorists were shot by other security personnel immediately following the stabbing. In the second instance, the terrorist subsequently died of his wounds.

“I would like to commend the activities of the soldiers and to say clearly: it is essential to give the soldiers authority to operate and strike at terrorists, and to back them up when they do,” Bennett added.

2 Israeli Police Stabbed, 1 Terrorist Dead in Sabbath Attacks

Saturday, August 15th, 2015

Over the Sabbath, two Israeli security officers were stabbed in two separate attacks, and a gas station was torched.

The first stabbing came early Sabbath morning when an IDF soldiers was stabbed by a Palestinian Authority Arab at the Ofer checkpoint on Highway 443 north of Jerusalem.

Highway 443 is the old Tel Aviv-Jerusalem highway, which runs partly through Samaria.

Nasim Yousef Gomhour, 19, is a resident of Beit Anan, a suburb of the Palestinian Authority capital of Ramallah, in Samaria. Gomhour arrived at the Ofer checkpoint from west of Beit Horon, according to a report by Israel’s Channel 10 news, and asked the soldiers for some water.

When the soldier turned to get him the water, Gomhour pulled a knife and stabbed him. Other soldiers on the scene shot the attacker.

The wounded soldier was rushed by military vehicle to a nearby hospital. According to a subsequent report by the Hebrew-language Ynet website, the stabber told investigators he had decided to stab an Israeli soldier after he had been struck by his father in an argument.

The second stabbing occurred during a routine security check at the Beita junction near the Huwara checkpoint.

A Palestinian Authority Arab pulled out a knife and stabbed a Border Guard Police officer in the back.

Security personnel immediately opened fire and shot the attacker, later identified by the Bethlehem-based Ma’an news agency as Rafik Kamal al-Taj.

The wounded officer was treated at the scene before being taken to the hospital, according to a statement by the Border Police spokesperson. The injured terrorist was critically injured and later died of his wounds.

On Friday night, a gas station located on Highway 60 near the Samaria Jewish community of Eli was set ablaze by unknown arsonists who managed to escape detection. No arrests have been made.

Jewish Teen Attacked, Arabs Riot in Jerusalem

Thursday, August 13th, 2015

Arab violence against Jews continues in Israel with daily riots and attacks on Israelis.

A Jewish teen was attacked by an Arab teen as he walked through the Muslim quarter of the Old City in Jerusalem late Wednesday.

While Israel Police have not released details of the incident, spokesperson Luba Samri said that although the Jewish teen was badly shaken, he did not require medical treatment.

The attacker was arrested and taken into custody.

Dozens of Arabs in local “hot spots” around the capital continued to riot on Wednesday as well.

Police riot police were called to quell disturbances in the Jerusalem neighborhood of Isawiyya Wednesday morning.

Dozens of Arab teens launched exploding fireworks and hurled rocks and firebombs (Molotov cocktails) at Border Guard Police officers who were stationed in the area.

The riot unit used stun grenades to disband the mob. No arrests were made and no injuries were reported, according to Samri.

By Wednesday afternoon, a mob of masked Arab teens began rioting in the Silwan (Shiloah) neighborhood, nestled just below the ancient walls of Jerusalem’s Old City. The rioters again hurled rocks and firebombs at police who were stationed in the area. Riot police called to disperse the mob used stun grenades to break up the disturbance.

No arrests were made in either riot but police are searching for the organizers. None of the officers were injured in either incident.

Clashes also broke out between Jews and Arabs at a solidarity protest and counter protest over a Palestinian Authority terrorist prisoner who is on a hunger strike.

Mohammed Alla’an, a member of the Iranian-backed Palestinian Islamic Jihad terrorist organization, is on day 60 of his hunger strike. He is hospitalized at Barzilai Medical Center.

Demonstrators were protesting the possibility that the terrorist might be force-fed, although the hospital released a statement Monday saying that doctors see that procedure as “a drastic step that is not in line with medical ethics. Therefore it must be done with the consent of the patient or reserved only for situations where health has declined to where drastic treatment is needed to save a life.”

Israeli Arab protesters outside the hospital were waving Palestinian Authority flags which police said were not approved as part of the demonstration. PA flag-waving in pre-1967 Israel can also be seen as a provocation.

They were confronted with a counter demonstration by local Jews who yelled anti-Islamic slogans such as, “Muhammad is a pig.” Some also carried signs that police said constituted incitement as well.

Palestinian Authority Arabs Trying to Burn Down Israel

Monday, July 6th, 2015

Palestinian Authority Arabs lit the matches to set three fires that blazed through 300 acres of Jerusalem area forest and threatened to reach the Jerusalem Biblical Zoo, according to police.

The third fire broke out on Saturday near Kibbutz Maaleh HaHamisha, west of Jerusalem, after Arabs from a nearby village in Samaria threw firebombs at a forest.

Seventeen firefighting crews battled the blaze to keep it from reaching the kibbutz.

Beit Shemesh fire chief Reuven Yitzchak told JNS news service:

In the past week, around 300 acres of natural forest have gone up in smoke. In many cases, the fires were intentionally set with firebombs or various other various means.

Burning down Israel was a favorite tactic of Palestinian Authority Arabs in the Intifada that began in the last 1980s and early 1990s.

So much for the Palestinian Authority’s love of the land.

Terror by arson can be a very profitable operation, with the cooperation of Israel.

The Jewish National Fund (Keren Kayemet L’Yisrael) pays Arabs to plant trees, many of them donated by Jews in the Diaspora.

The Palestinian Authority often pays Arabs to set the fires.

Then the JNF pays the Arabs to put out the blaze.

Maybe that is why Mahmoud Abbas does not want an agreement.
