Israel Will Revoke Citizenship of Arab ‘Paraglider’ – If He Returns

Sunday, October 25th, 2015

The Israeli citizenship of the Arab who glided from the air into Syria Saturday night will be revoked, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said at the beginning of Sunday’s weekly Cabinet meeting.

The Arab, as reported here, set off a crisis after the IDF discovered that someone had paraglided from the Israeli side of the Golan Heights into Syria.

The IDF began a search for the man, but once it was clear that the paraglider had crossed into Syria to join the enemy, either the Islamic State (ISIS) or the Al Qaeda-linked Al Nusra Front, the search was called off.

Prime Minister Netanyahu told the Cabinet:

We are constantly fighting Daish, Jabhat – Al Nusra and other terrorist organizations.

Yesterday an Israeli civilian crossed our border in the Golan Heights into Syria to join the ranks of the enemy. We will act to nullify his citizenship. That is what is done in any such case.

Whoever joins the ranks of the enemy to fight against Israel, will not be an Israeli citizen.

Hezbollah, Lebanon, Syria and Hamas officially are enemies or illegal in Israel. Does that mean that the citizenship of any Israeli who joins Hamas, or Islamic Jihad, will be revoked?

Don’t bet on it.

And how about Mahmoud Abbas’ “resistance” terrorists working for his Fatah party?

No chance. Israel has not declared Fatah an illegal terrorist organization.

It is headed by Israel’s “peace partner.”

Abbas’ ‘UN Bomb” Might Be Proclamation of Independence of New Arab Country

Monday, September 21st, 2015

The most likely “bomb” that Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmud Abbas said he will drop at the end of his speech in the United Nations later this month is a declaration that the PA is an independent country.

Speculation that his bomb will be the announcement of the extinction of the Palestinian Authority or the end of the Oslo Accords does not stand to reason. He has resigned or threatened to resign several times, so officially doing so from the podium of the United Nations would not even qualify as a stink bomb.

As for the Oslo Accords, officially breaking them also would not mean anything. The Agreement exists only as an historical record of one the modern history’s most ignorant, ill–conceived and poisonous ideas, a document that hypnotized the world to grant arch-terrorist Yasser Arafat the Nobel Peace Prize.

Israel Shield wrote here yesterday that Abbas’ “bomb” will be“to say he accepts Israel as the Jewish State and proclaim he is willing to negotiate a full and extensive deal based on the 1967 borders.”

I don’t know if the writer was being funny or serious, but in either case, “Mr. Shield,” Abbas never would make such an announcement unless he wanted one of his brethren to shoot his brains out.

Yes, it would make sense for Abbas to declare Israel as a country for the Jews. It would be a cunning concession that would shut up Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, who has baited Abbas several times to make such a statement.

No, Abbas won’t do it because taking a step backwards in order to take two steps forward is forbidden in the Arab world when it comes to dealing with Israel. That is why Arafat did not grab the insane offers of former Prime Ministers Ehud Barak and Ehud Olmert, one a suspected crook and the other a convicted crook, to give away all of the land it wants, for the time being, except for 3 percent of it.

The Arab world has never given up on its single-minded goal to erase Israel as a Jewish state. Despite the help of Britain during the period of the Mandate, it was not able to prevent the re-establishment of the State of Israel.

Instead of accepting the United Nations’ recognition of Israel with the Partition Plan’s indefensible borders that would have made it easier for them to overrun the tiny country, the Arabs eagerly threw all their ammunition and weapons against Israel to try to annihilate it immediately. They ended up with the 1949 “Temporary Armistice Lines” that gave Israel much more territory than under the Partition Plan.

Israel overcame economic hardship, undeclared war by Egypt and constant Arab raids until the Six-Day War in 1967, when Israel foiled the attempt by seven surrounding Arab states to finish off the Jews.

Abbas is an Arab Muslim and thinks like one, but he also is a brilliant though narrow-minded politician and magician who has hypnotized the world to accept him as man of peace at the same time he and his regime extol hate, venom and terror against Israel.

When he succeeded Arafat in 2005, he presented a new image of a Palestinian Authority leader, replacing the gun on the holster with a suit and tie. Abbas traveled around the world dozens of times, picking up diplomatic support from every continent and establishing embassies that helped convince politicians and media that the PA is a state for all intents and purposes.

All that was lacking was Israel’s agreement to his conditions, which one by one dropped off as topics of “negotiations” as provided by the Oslo Accords and various declarations by the Bush and Obama administrations.

Islamic Jihad Terrorist Mohammed Alla’an Re-arrested After Hospital Discharge

Wednesday, September 16th, 2015

Marathon hunger striking Islamic Jihad terrorist Mohammed Alla’an was discharged Wednesday morning from Ashkelon’s Barzilai Medical Center — and was re-arrested within hours by Israel on administrative orders.

Alla’an had been returned to the Israel Prison Authority after being discharged from Barzilai, where he spent three months receiving treatment for the ravages of his hunger strike, which lasted more than 60 days.

During the latter days of treatment his supporters and family managed to secure Alla’an’s release from administrative detention.

But upon his return to the custody of the IPA, Alla’an was re-arrested on a general IDF order by Ashkelon district police officials. The close supervision and arrests come in the wake of suspicions that Alla’an was involved in masterminding suicide bombing operations during the second intifada.

The terrorist is suspected of direct involvement in recruiting and directing suicide bombers, and aiding and abetting fugitive terrorists, but has not been tried on charges either due to the need to protect security sources, or a lack of direct evidence.

Gaza: Islamic Jihad and Hamas Threatening Rocket Fire

Tuesday, September 1st, 2015

In Gaza, the Islamic Jihad and Hamas terrorist groups are threatening to launch rockets at Israel in response to Monday night’s Jenin operation. As of now, a few hours after the operation began, neither have launched any rockets.

Five Palestinian Administrative Detainees Begin Hunger Strike

Tuesday, September 1st, 2015

(JNi.media) Five administrative detainees in Ketziot Prison in the Negev desert, some 45 miles south-west of Beer Sheva, on Monday started a hunger strike, according to the Israeli Prison Service. Palestinian media reported that five are members of the Islamic Jihad, and that they have been on a hunger strike for 11 days already. However, the IPS insists they only began their strike on Sunday morning this week. The five detainees are protesting their imprisonment without a trial.

Administrative detention is the arrest and confinement of individuals by the state without trial, usually for security reasons. A large number of countries, both democratic and undemocratic, resort to administrative detention as a means of combating terrorism, fighting illegal immigration, or to stifle political opposition.

Many inside Israel suggest it is one of the democracies which utilize imprisonment without trial to all three ends. The legal basis for Israel’s use of Administrative Detention is the British Mandate 1945 Defense (Emergency) Regulations which were amended in 1979 to form the Israeli Law on Authority in States of Emergency. Administrative detention is most often used for the indefinite detention of Palestinian prisoners—the ratio is about 20-1 compared with Jewish detainees. It is also used in cases where the available evidence consists of information obtained by the security services (Shin Bet), and where a trial would reveal sensitive security information, such as the identities of informers or infiltrators.

Recently there has been a significant increase in the number of Jewish detainees, although in most of these cases the detention is in the form of house arrest, or prohibition to enter Judea and Samaria and to associate with other Jewish detainees.

Two weeks ago, the Supreme Court quashed the administrative detention order issued against Muhammad Alan, a Palestinian lawyer who maintained a hunger strike of some 65 days in protest at being held in prison without trial. The decision of a panel of three High Court justices determined that Alan’s serious medical condition, a consequence of his hunger strike, was cause to suspend his arrest warrant.

Alan, who also belongs to the Islamic Jihad, has since ended his hunger strike, but told the Hamas journal “Al-Risala” that, should he be re-arrested, he’d start a new hunger strike again, “until the end of the tragedy of the thousands of prisoners in the jails of the occupation.”

Before being detained, Alan spent three years in jail on the charge of recruiting a suicide bomber.

PA Terror Cell Arrested for Plotting to Shoot Jews at Joseph’s Tomb

Tuesday, August 25th, 2015

Israel security forces have arrested an Islamic Jihad in Samaria terror cell for plotting to plant bombs and shoot at Israeli civilians at Joseph Tomb (Kever Yosef).

The Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) and the IDF arrested the cell earlier this week and lifted a gag order on the operation Tuesday afternoon.

The cell received directives from Rafat Mohamed Darwish, an Islamic Jihad terrorist operating in Gaza and who is responsible for connecting the terrorist organization with operatives in Judaea and Samaria Region.

Darwish was in charge of arming the cell in order to execute the attack.

Members of the cell arrested are:

Nisim Mohammed Ramdan Rashid Damiri, 30, is of Tulkarm, located east of Netanya. Damiri has been previously arrested on multiple occasions and associated with the Tanzim terrorist group;

Mohammed Mufak Rafik Damiri, 23, also from Tulkarm (’92) and who served as a Palestinian policeman;

Yasir Gaudet Abed Zaruri, 35, a former Hamas terrorist from Shechem and who previously has been arrested; and

Aduen Padel Hassan Nazel, 24, from the village of Qabatiya, south of Jenin in northern Samaria. .

The investigation revealed that each member of the cell held a specific position, such as acquiring weapons, gathering intelligence and executing the attack.

The residents of Nablus and Qabatiya were in charge acquiring the weapons, training and logistics, while the residents of Tulkarm were responsible for executing the attack. Nisim Damiri was planning to execute the attack, and Mohammed Damiri gathered intelligence information regarding the worshipers’ activities in Joseph’s Tomb.

Zaruri admitted to agreeing to teach Nisim Damiri how to prepare an improvised explosive device (IED).

Nazel revealed he was contacted by Darwish from Gaza, who asked him to supply the cell with weapons for the attack.

The case has been transferred to the Military Court in the in the Samaria Region in order to indict the four terrorists.

IDF spokesmen added:

The investigation revealed the clear and continued intent of operatives in the Gaza Strip to recruit terrorists as well as direct and lead terror activities in the Judea and Samaria Region.

Suspected ISIS Jihadists Blow Up Six Hamas Vehicles in Gaza

Sunday, July 19th, 2015

Salafists linked with the Islamic State (ISIS) blew up six Hamas and Islamic Jihad vehicles in simultaneous attacks in Gaza City, Sunday morning.

At least two people were wounded.

The ability to stage a coordinated attack in the Hamas stronghold reflects both the capabilities of the jihadists as well as the growing vulnerability of Hamas, whose regime has brought misery, depression and war to the local population.

An ISIS poster was found near one of the vehicles that as exploded.

Israel’s Reshet Bet (Voice of Israel) suggested that terrorists may have used the ISIS poster to frame the Islamists for attacks, which could have been carried out only with highly organized support.

The fact that there were not many injuries offers a hint that it might have been Palestinian Authority Fatah terrorists who staged the rare attack with the intent of scaring Hamas but without causing an immediate upheaval.

So much for the “unity” that President Obama so highly applauded earlier this year.

Hamas has face difficulties with Egypt too, which accuses them of helping the ISIS terrorists in Sinai.

Senior Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal won a rare audience last week with Saudi Arabia king Salman, the first time in four years that a Saudi king has publicly confirmed discussions with the Gaza regime.
