Update: Arabs, Islamic Waqf Staff Clash w/ Israel Police, Jewish Visitors on Temple Mount

Wednesday, September 16th, 2015

For the fourth day in a row, a mob of dozens of Arabs attacked Jews Wednesday morning who came on pilgrimage to the Temple Mount compound.

Arab rioters have been stockpiling rocks, cement blocks, fireworks, firecrackers, rocks, firebombs and pipebombs in the Al Aqsa mosque on the site for use as ammunition against visiting Jewish pilgrims and Israeli security personnel. They have even broken walls within the holy mosque in order to use the pieces as weapons during their riots, according to a Jerusalem official.

Israel Police were physically assaulted by Islamic Waqf mainenance personnel in the morning on the Temple Mount after they attempted to protect a group of Jewish visitors to the site from screaming Arabs who hurled bottles at them in the compound.

According to a report by the Hebrew-language “0404” news website, the Islamic Waqf maintenance personnel showed no apprehension or concern that they would be reprimanded by their own security staff as they attacked Israeli police officers who were guarding the Jewish visitors.

A Muslim mob quickly gathered and surrounded the Jewish tourists despite a recent order signed by Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon, banning such groups.

Israeli police deployed at the compound attempted to protect the Jewish visitors and to distance the Muslim mob, but at that point, the Waqf maintenance personnel began to shove the police officers and then simply attacked them.

Although Israeli police acted “with great restraint” Arab rioters succeeded in hurling a bottle at the Jewish visitors, according to the 0404 website.

Miraculously, none of the Jews were physically injured although obviously there was a certain level of trauma experienced by those who ascended to the site.

As a writer with clinical background, I also wish to raise the issue of how these repeated, daily traumas must impact the views and ultimately the lives of young Israeli security personnel as well.

It is important to recognize that it is impossible for any human being to ignore constant provocation, antagonism and trauma without also eventually being affected. Each person reacts to that in different ways — but the effects, when not addressed, can be permanent. Our most precious resource in Israel is human.

Surreal: Israeli Police Raids Conference Against Anti-Democratic Administrative Detention

Thursday, August 27th, 2015

(JNi.media) Large police forces as well as a SWAT team on Thursday surrounded the community center at the village of Nof Ayalon near Modi’in, inside the 1949 armistice “green line.” The center was hosting a conference of right wing activists, rabbis and public figures, who gathered to debate the sharp rise in the issuing of administrative detention orders by the Israeli government. Police detained two (although there were reports of four) activists who have been expelled from Judea and Samaria attended the conference, although there presence there did not violate the orders against them.

Among the better known activists at the conference were Professor Hillel Weiss, Torah scholar and writer Rabbi Yoel Schwartz—a co-founder of the IDF Nahal Haredi battalion, former MK Michael Ben-Ari, Lehava leader Ben-Zion Gopstein, Noam Federman, Baruch Marzel, attorney Yitzhak Bam, and “hilltop youth” activist Meir Bartler.

Honenu legal aid society chairman Shmuel Medad, who attended the conference, wrote on his organization’s Facebook page, “The landlord is crazy (an Israeli expression meaning the government has lost it). It appears that even a conference against administrative decrees is not to the liking of the Israel Police. Unfortunately, the police receive instructions to act as if there are no restrictions on their force and no limitations on their resources.”

A senior police official confirmed to Maariv that forces were active in the village, and said, “The event was attended by young people who have recently accepted administrative orders. The orders include a prohibition on contacting other activists. These are activists who had violated the ban and met each other in this place. Troops arrived to carry out arrests following a breach of the order. Two activists have been arrested.”

Despite their claim to justification, police confiscated video cameras and erased records of their raid, saying the clips would expose clandestine members of the Jewish division of Shin Bet.

Israel Police Next Commissioner Gal Hirsch to Face Deep Public Mistrust in Law Enforcement

Wednesday, August 26th, 2015

(JNi.media) Internal Security Minister Gilad Erdan (Likud) on Tuesday announced his choice for new police chief, IDF Brigadier General (Res) Gal Hirsch. The nomination was surprising and certainly shocked the police brass. But both the police leaders, who have been passed for an outsider for the top job, and the new commissioner, now must face a number of major challenges, most urgent of which is the reconstruction of a dejected, demoralized force, plagued by corruption—and the restoration of public confidence, which has dropped to an unprecedented low.

In the past year, the police has suffered severe blows to its image, including a series of sex scandals involving Police Generals Nisso Shaham and Hagai Dotan, and Deputy Police Chief Nissim Mor, who were dismissed for sexual offenses against junior police officers.

On Tuesday night, Minister Erdan outlined for NRG the work awaiting the new commissioner: “I composed a 15-point document which includes the fight against traffic accidents, in which Israel is placed in an uncomplimentary spot, as well as improved intelligence — with a focus on the Internet. He will have to implement these points. In addition there horizontal issues, mainly strengthening stations and field personnel, while simultaneously reducing command staff.”

Another loss of public confidence in the police stemmed from the abysmal failure of the 100 Center (Israel’s 911) to identify and respond properly to a distress call from the three Jewish boys who had been kidnapped by Hamas in Judea and Samaria, and were killed shortly thereafter.

Erdan said on Tuesday: “I expect a change in the area of ​​deployment of police services in the Arab sector, opening more stations and connecting with the Arab leadership. The whole issue of police service in the non-Jewish sector, is also something the other side is interested in. Another thing is the increased police presence. I fought for it in the budget, and the new commissioner will have to make a plan to deploy more policemen on the streets.”

Commenting on the motives that led to Hirsch’s appointment, the Minister mentioned his disappointment in the police conduct at the Jerusalem Gay Pride Parade, which convinced him to appoint someone from outside the ranks. Erdan said: “What happened at the gay parade is one of the main reasons [to seek a commissioner from outside the force], but not the only one. In the three months since I took office, I’ve been exposed to problematic issues. I read in the latest report about some very difficult problems all the way within the organization, and here and there even encountered them directly.”

Erdan added: “I do not think that three months is sufficient time to get to know such an organization and the people in it, but when I saw the extent of the problems, I understood that only someone who comes from the outside has a chance to make a change. This is a move that is so difficult in these organizations, and I’m talking about fundamental changes, like discipline, organizational norms, and other areas on these levels.”

No Arab Women and Children Hecklers Allowed on Temple Mount

Tuesday, August 25th, 2015

Arab women and children who have spent more than a week harassing Jewish visitors to the Temple Mount were barred from entering the site this morning (Tuesday, August 25) by security forces.

Adult Arab men with Israeli identification cards are being allowed to enter the site, according to Israel Police, but are being asked to leave within a half hour of their entry. In addition, Israel Police are not allowing the men to gather in groups at the exit of the Temple Mount, next to Ohel Yitzchak and harass Jews, as has happened in the past.

There have been reports of clashes at the exit gates of the Temple Mount near Ohel Yitzchak with Muslims who were pushed back after they had attempted to attack Jews within the compound.

Nevertheless, visits to the site were allowed to continue despite the attempted provocations, which are aimed precisely at forcing the police to close the site to non-Muslims.

The restrictions came in the wake of recent violence by the burka-clad women and Arab children, who were terrorizing every Jewish visitor to the site. The Arab hecklers clearly answered to Islamic authorities, who were seen in several videos telling them to be quiet during questioning at the entrance to the site — and they immediately lowered the volume of their chants.

Once away from the entrance, however, the Arab women and children instantly resumed clapping their hands in visitors’ faces, bursting water balloons and popping other balloons, and incessantly screaming “Allahu Akbar! (God is Great) at the top of their lungs, crowding as close to the Jews as possible.

Last week one burka-clad Arab woman viciously punched an elderly Jewish woman in the ribs and then swiftly slipped back among the other burka-clad women; it was impossible to know who was guilty of the assault.

Muslims on the Temple Mount or Escapees from a Mental Institution

Monday, August 24th, 2015

The Temple Institute posted this video from August 11th, showing how Muslims really act on the Temple Mount while the Israeli police stand by. Islamic behavior like this happens all the time.

After watching this, does anyone believe the Muslims actually consider the Temple Mount holy, or is this only about preventing Jews from praying on our holiest site?

This is like looking at a scene from a mental institution.

But finally, after yesterday’s latest Islamic insanity on the Temple Mount, the police have forbidden Muslim women and children under 12 from entering the Jewish holy site today.


MUSLIMS TRASH TEMPLE MOUNT TO BLOCK THE PATH OF JEWSThe latest illegal antic adopted by racist Muslim supremacists on the Temple Mount is to throw garbage dumpsters in the path of Jewish worshipers on the Temple Mount. This video footage taken today shows exactly what 'devout' Muslims think of what is claimed to be "Islam's third holiest site.'Mr. Netanyahu: Iran is not the only threat to the well-being of Israel and the nations. Nothing is more crucial than the situation on the Temple Mount. Cleaning the trash from the Temple Mount and granting full rights to Jewish worshipers on the Mount is THE most effective way to counter the Iranian nuclear threat and to make the world a better place.

Baby Girl Wounded in Jerusalem Arab Rock Attack

Wednesday, August 19th, 2015

A Jewish Israeli baby girl, age 22 months, was wounded Wednesday night by a Palestinian Arab terrorist who hurled rocks at the car driven by her father on a road on the outskirts of Jerusalem.

The attack reportedly took place on Highway 443 on the road between the Atarot Junction and the Bentzion Interchange.

The baby’s father was also hurt by flying glass when Arab terrorists attacked the vehicle in which they were traveling. He suffered facial wounds and the vehicle was damaged as well.

Both the baby and her father were rushed to Shaare Tzedek Medical Center in Jerusalem.

Israel Police asked IDF soldiers to search the area, and in particular requested that IDF forces search the side of the road which is within “Area A” of the Palestinian Authority, since that is the side from which the attacks were launched and the rocks were thrown.

On Wednesday afternoon, masked teenage Arab boys rioted in the Jerusalem neighborhood of Issawiyeh. The boys hurled rocks and firebombs at Israel Police and Border Guard Police officers who were deployed to disperse the mob. One police officer was injured in the melee.

Arab Terrorists Blocking Roads, Hurling Rocks Around Jerusalem

Sunday, August 9th, 2015

Jerusalem Arabs were hurling rocks at Israeli vehicles traveling on the main arteries leading in and out the capital north and east of Jerusalem on Saturday night.

Rock attacks were reported in the area of Isawiyya in northern Jerusalem, where rioting was brought under control by Border Guard Police officers using riot dispersal measures.

Palestinian Authority Arab terrorists also hurled rocks at an Israeli bus just outside the tunnel between Jerusalem and the suburb of Ma’ale Adumim. None of the passengers on the bus were physically injured but the windshield of the bus was smashed.

IDF soldiers were deployed to the area to search for the terrorists.

Dozens of Arabs in other areas have also been blocking roads and hurling rocks and firebombs at IDF soldiers and Israel Police this weekend.

Security forces were already on high alert, however, and fully prepared to contend with any disturbances or possible attacks on civilians.
