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.”

Victims Identified from Jerusalem Terror Attack on Bus No. 78

Wednesday, October 14th, 2015

A gag order has been lifted on the identification of the victims of Tuesday morning’s deadly terror attack on Bus No. 78 in Jerusalem’s southeastern Armon Hanatziv neighborhood.

Both were killed during the attack by two terrorists. As one terrorist attacked the driver and sealed the doors shut, the other went through the vehicle and stabbed passengers.

One of the fallen was 51-year-old Alon Guverg, who lived alone in the neighborhood and is to be laid to rest Wednesday afternoon.

The ZAKA first responder organization is asking the public to please attend this man’s funeral at 5 pm at the Family Mourning Home in Givat Shaul, as he lived alone, a man who died a victim of terror in the holy city.

The second terror victim on the bus Tuesday morning was 78-year-old Chaim Haviv, who also is to be laid to rest Wednesday. Haviv’s wife Shoshana was on the bus as well and survived the attack but was seriously wounded. She remains hospitalized in serious condition at Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem.

At least 16 others were physically wounded in the two attacks, and dozens of others were badly traumatized. The second attack which came just minutes after the first involved a Bezeq technician who rammed his car straight into a crowd of people standing at a bus stop on Rehov Malchei Yisrael in central Jerusalem. The terrorist then got out of the car and began stabbing those who were still standing.

Among those stabbed by the Arab Bezeq worker-turned-terrorist was Rabbi Yeshiayahu Krishevsky, who was laid to rest Tuesday afternoon.

All of the terrorists in the above attacks were residents of the Jerusalem neighborhood of Jabel Mukabar.

Jerusalem on Lockdown, Prepares to Defend Against Terror

Tuesday, October 13th, 2015

Neighborhoods in eastern Jerusalem were placed on full lockdown following a chain of mass casualty terror attacks Tuesday morning.

All roads leading into Jerusalem were closed effective 11 am, until further notice.

The security measures came in response to a set of at least three nearly simultaneous Arab terrorist attacks that left more than 17 civilians wounded. At least five are in critical condition, and half a dozen more are seriously wounded.

Dozens more are badly traumatized after the attacks which took place on Bus #78 and in two locations in the very heart of the city, on Malchei Yisrael Street.

Another attempted terror attack at the Damascus Gate entrance to the Old City of Jerusalem was unsuccessful, however, and left only the terrorist dead.

4 Russian Cruise Missiles Accidentally Hit Iran (No Kidding)

Thursday, October 8th, 2015

At least four Russian cruise missiles are reported to have accidentally hit the Islamic Republic of Iran, according to two U.S. officials quoted on Thursday by CNN.

The missiles allegedly crashed Wednesday (Oct. 7) as they flew over Iran after being launched from Russian ships in the south Caspian Sea. They were headed for targets in Syria, via the Kurdistani skies of Iran and Iraq, where the missiles were seen flying low in the air.

Russian officials said they coordinated the attack with Syria, Iran, and Lebanon’s Hezbollah guerrilla fighters using air, land and sea forces. The launch involved 26 cruise missiles fired from naval vessels about 900 miles away from their intended targets.

Most of the attack was allegedly focused on Da’esh (ISIS) terrorists, but it was clear that Russia was intent on pushing back Syrian opposition forces who had recently gained ground near the coast as well.

There have also been reports of Russian jets intimidating coalition forces as they fight to support the regime of President Bashar al-Assad. The U.S.-led coalition is fighting Assad’s forces and is backing the self-described “moderate” rebel faction.

Israel Police Limit Access to Old City of Jerusalem

Sunday, October 4th, 2015

Israel Police began limiting access to the Temple Mount early Sunday in the wake of a massive wave of terror this weekend in and around Jerusalem.

Access to the area is to be limited for the next two days, the period spanning the Jewish holidays of Hoshana Raba and Simchat Torah, the final days of the first Jewish festival of the Hebrew calendar.

Two Israeli rabbis were murdered, and a young mother and her 2-year-old toddler were gravely wounded by a teenage Arab terrorist as they were walking back from the Western Wall on HaGai Street near the Lion’s Gate.

At around 3 am Sunday morning, a 15-year-old Jewish teen was stabbed in the chest by a Palestinian Arab terrorist outside the Old City. Police saw the attack, and the terrorist with the knife in his hand, and shot him dead.

Following the attacks, Israel’s government “agreed to proposals by Israeli security services and police to limit access to the Old City for the next two days,” according to a government statement.

Access to the Old City is to be restricted to Israeli citizens, residents of the Old City, tourists and business people who work in the Old City, and students who study in the Old City.

The murderer who carried out Saturday night’s terror attack was a resident of al-Bireh, an Arab village near the Palestinian Authority capital city of Ramallah, in Samaria.

Access to the Temple Mount for Muslim prayer is to be limited to males aged 50 and above, although there will be no age limit on female Muslim worshipers. That access will be through the Lions Gate, where Saturday night’s terror attack took place.
