Turkish and Kuwaiti NGOs Funded Islamic Movement

Tuesday, November 17th, 2015

The Islamic Movement has become a “state within a state” and at the end of 2012 held $6.6 million, part of which came for foreign NGOs, Reshet Bet (Voice of Israel) radio reported Wednesday.

As reported here, the Security Cabinet has outlawed the organization, and police last night swooped down on its offices and NGOs to confiscate weapons, cash and computers.

NGOs in Turkey and Kuwait helped fatten the assets of the Islamic Movement, supposed a non-profit organization. Turkey’s IHH branch was organized and sent terrorists on the Mavi Mamara ship in 2010 to try to break the maritime embargo clamped on Hamas-controlled Gaza to prevent smuggling of weapons and terrorists.

If investigators can prove that the Islamic Movement, which preaches violence at the Temple Mount, used the money for incitement, indictments will follow.

Israel Declares War on Radical Islamic Movement and Seizes Weapons

Tuesday, November 17th, 2015

The Security Cabinet has declared the radical Islamic Movement to be illegal, paving the way for overnight police raids in 13 cities on 17 offices connected to the radical Islamic group.

The decision was held under a veil of secrecy until police could raid Islamic Movement offices in cities that included Umm el-Fahm and Nazareth in the Galilee and Be’er Sheva and Rahat in the northern Negev. Police and the Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) confiscated weapons, cash and computers. Bank accounts were frozen.

Raad Salah, the leader of the northern branch based in Umm el-Fahm, southeast of Haifa, called the Israeli action a “cynical exploitation” of the Islamic State (ISIS) massacres in Paris Friday night. He is scheduled to begin servng an 11-month prison sentence next week for incitement and violence.

Declaring the Islamic Movement illegal was just a matter of time because Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said two weeks ago he would do so, but his statement Tuesday morning invites the question why Israel did not lock up the pro-terror group long ago.

The office of the Prime Minister stated this morning:

For years, the Islamic Movement’s northern branch has been waging a campaign of deceitful incitement under the banner of ‘al-Aksa is in danger,’ which blames Israel by falsely accusing it of intending to harm the al-Aksa mosque and to violate the status quo there.

Historians will ask why it took years to make illegal the Islamic Movment, which Netanyahu’s statement said is Hamas’ “sister, “and to place the anti-Zionist organization in the same category as Hamas that the United States, like Israel, has defined as an illegal terrorist organization.

The Prime Minister’s statement added that declaring the Islamic Movement illegal means that anyone who is a member or works on its behalf can be arrested and subject to a term in prison.

The statement added:

The northern branch has established a network of paid activists in order to initiate provocations on the Temple Mount. This activity has led to a significant increase in tension on the Temple Mount. A significant portion of recent terrorist attacks have been committed against the background of this incitement and propaganda.

The northern branch of the Islamic Movement is a separatist-racist organization that does not recognize the institutions of the State of Israel, denies its right to exist and calls for the establishment of an Islamic caliphate in its place. The northern branch of the Islamic Movement belongs to radical Islam and is part of the global ‘Muslim Brotherhood’ movement. The two movements share an extremist ideology and a common goal – the destruction of the State of Israel.

Shin Bet Reveals Terrorist Stabbed Woman in Eilat

Thursday, November 12th, 2015

The Arab terror-knifing spree has reached Eilat.

An Arab Israeli carried out a terrorist attack in the southern two weeks ago, the Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) revealed Thursday afternoon.

The stabbing of the woman was reported at the time, but police later banned all reports. With the help of an eye witness and forensic experts, the terrorist was found not far from his home and is to be indicted.

It lifted the gag order on the attack by 24-year-old Nadal Yosef Jabarin, who has been living in Eilat for several years but originally is from Umm al-Fahm, headquarters of the northern branch of the radical Islamic Movement that preaches violence against Jews.

He stabbed a woman in the face, and she suffered light injuries.

Jabarin told investigators he was encouraged by social media to try to kill Jews.

In a separate attack, a Palestinian Authority terrorist escaped Thursday afternoon after trying to stab a soldier at a checkpoint near at Rachel’s Tomb (Kever Rachel).

Knesset Arabs in Split Over Condemnation of Be’er Sheva Attack

Tuesday, October 20th, 2015

(JNi.media) There’s a rupture in the Knesset Joint Arab List, as members of the National Democratic Assembly (Balad) group within the faction objected to the wording of the faction’s official condemnation of last Sunday’s terrorist attack in the Beer Sheva central bus station, because, as they put it, it’s inappropriate to condemn the victim, the newspaper Kul al-Arab reported Tuesday. As a result, the NDA MKs—Jamal Zahalka, Hanin Zoabi and Basel Ghattas—did not participate in drafting the statement of condemnation.

Despite the NDA’s opposition, the Joint List published a statement condemning the attack. Israel Radio noted that the NDA members have been boycotting the Knesset faction’s meetings because of their opposition to the appointment of Masud Ganaim as faction leader. The NDA want their own Basel Ghattas to receive the appointment by rotation.

Meanwhile, the Netanyahu government has been going about declaring the International Muslim Brothers illegal in Israel, after it has been discovered that they are the main funding source for the northern branch of the Islamic movement, which is in the process of being declared illegal.

At the Monday cabinet meeting, Shin Bet representatives presented information showing that the father of the terrorist who carried out the attack in Be’er Sheva the day before is active in the Islamic Movement. Netanyahu intends dry the Islamists’ financial resources, and later declare them illegal.

Meanwhile, Interior Ministry’s findings suggest that many of the perpetrators of recent attacks who carry blue, Israeli identity cards, were able to live in Israel as a result family reunification, a kind of olive-branch project heralded by many Israeli governments as an example of their wish for peace. This might change in light of the evidence.

Netanyahu on Radical Islam: Osama Bin Laden Meets Mark Zuckerberg

Monday, October 19th, 2015

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said Monday that he soon will announce measures against the radical Islamic Movement, whose northern branch leader Raed Salah has been arrested several times for inciting violence.

The Prime Minister added:

We are seeing a combination of the Internet and Islamic extremists, and the incitement on social media is fueling murder. It has been Osama Bin Laden meets Mark Zuckerberg.

Salah was convicted last week and faces a jail sentence of several months, but he vowed to continue his campaign from behind bars to “free Al Aqsa.”

The current and previous governments have turned a blind eye to the Islamic Movement, which has hypnotized of thousands of Arabs in the Galilee and Bedouin in the Negev to adopt terror “in the name of Allah.”

Netanyahu: Arab Terrorists Have not Learned They Cannot Destroy Israel

Monday, October 12th, 2015

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu warned the Israeli Arab sector Monday that their leaders who are inciting terror and murder will be investigated for criminal violations.

He singled out Arab Knesset Member Haneen Zoabi and the Northern Branch of the Islamic Movement, headed by Sheikh Raed Salah.

As he spoke, more terrorists struck and left Israelis wounded, one of them a teenager barely hanging on this life.

His speech was aimed not only at the Knesset but also at the entire country, whose citizens from border to border are under immediate threat of “lone terrorists,” most of them teenagers or in their 20s.

Netanyahu said that Arabs still have not learned they cannot annihilate Israel and called on Arab leaders to stop all incitement and decide if they want co-existence or a religious war.

He pointed out that the lies from the Palestinian Authority and the entire world that Jews have no connection with the Temple Mount and are trying to destroy Arab mosques are not new but will not live.

Prime Minister Netanyahu added:

We have no fight with Islam, but the attempt to ignite a religious war is based on a lie and is dangerous incitement that has cost lives.

Hamas and the Palestinian Authority do educate for peace but incite anti-Semitism. Abbas must stop the incitement and must condemn terror attacks just as I have condemned attacks on Arabs,

We are a country ruled by law, and we will not allow anyone to break the law.

He said that legal procedures are being completed to declare the Islamic Movement an illegal organization.

The Prime Minister then turned his attention to MK Haneen Zoabi and told the Knesset that after Rabbi Eitam and Naama Henkin were murdered in front of their children:

A member of this house [Knesset] said, ‘The Henkin couple are settlers and you cannot refer to them as innocent citizens.’

What does that mean?

That is permitted to kill them and to kill others?

Zoabi did not restrict herself to settlers. She justified terror and said that ‘individua actions are not enough and that what is needed is an entire Intifada.’

Prime Minister Netanyahu called her remarks “unbelievable” and that when an MK calls for terrorist attacks against civilians of the country, nothing is needed more than a criminal investigation.

Israel Arab Mayor Complains: Terror Chasing Away Jews

Monday, October 12th, 2015

The Arab mayor of the predominantly Arab city of Nazareth has raised his voice against the recent wave of terror that he says is ruining his city by chasing away Jews.

Mayor Ali Salaam told Globes:

I’ve been knee-deep in trouble. On an ordinary Saturday, 20,000-30,000 Jews visit Nazareth, and there wasn’t a Jew in the city yesterday.

They [Arab businessmen] make millions on Friday and Saturday, at least NIS 10 million [$2.6 million], and they didn’t make a cent yesterday. Restaurants were closed, businesses were closed. They came to me in the municipality and wept. We have to work several months in order to bring back commerce back to the city.

The recent escalation in Palestinian Authority violence has spread to the heart of urban areas in Israel, including Kiryat Gat, home to a giant Intel factory and a normally quiet city north of Be’er Sheva, Afula in the north and metropolitan Tel Aviv.

While Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has lashed out at Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas for stoking the coals of terror, Arab Knesset Members have been openly inciting Arabs with Israeli citizenship. The Prime Minister has targeted MK Haneen Zoabi for investigation for violating laws, but there is no shortage of other openly anti-Jewish and anti-Israel Arab MKs.

The most vocal of them is Jamal Zahalka, who has preached against any connection between Jews and the Temple Mount, called Israel an Aparthied state and who has illegally visited the enemy states of Lebanon and Syria without being indicted.

Salam said of Arab MKs:

They staged a parade, and after the parade, they left the young people, who started throwing stones and burning things….. Each time, somebody else is responsible for the destruction. We can’t have everyone coming to make a parade in Nazareth. The business owners want to demonstrate against what’s happening.

Most of the MKs want to come for the publicity, to be seen and photographed. I’m sick and tired of them. Let them do something for the benefit of the people who voted for them.

I told [MK] Ayman Udeh, ‘Get out of here. I don’t want you to come to Nazareth. You’ve destroyed my city.’

The mayor said that the violence is not only bad for his city but also “is not good for the country.”

A Ben Gurion University professor from Umm el-Fahm, the northern Israeli city that is the home to the northern branch of the radical Islamic Movement, told Israel Radio (Reshet Bet) Monday that “95 percent of the people” are against the violence.

Unlike Israeli Jews, the Arab sector is not prone to public discussion, especially when it comes to voicing different opinions and attitudes towards Israel.

Radical Islamists have filled the vacuum and have monopolized public platforms.

The JewishPress.com previously has reported that even in the Palestinian Authority, the rank and file Arabs are interested in making a living more than being part of a new Arab country where they know that corrupt leaders will treat them as third-class citizens.

However, the Palestinian Authority agenda of preaching hate and incitement against Jews for more than 20 years has nurtured an entire generation that knows nothing of the stark improvement of the quality of life after the Jordanian occupation, and as well as the Egyptian rule over Gaza, ended with the Six-Day War in 1967.

Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked said on Monday that efforts are being made to define as illegal the Islamic Movement, which in the past several years has recruited tens of thousands of Bedouin in the Negev.
