Israeli Arab Who Joined ISIS Killed in Iraq

Saturday, October 11th, 2014

An Arab citizen form Israel who left his home in the Galilee this year and joined the ISIS has been killed in fighting in Iraq.

He was identified as 23-year-old Hamed Mohammed Habashi, 23, who is believed to have traveled to Turkey and to Syria.

Other Israeli Arab also have joined the Islamic State, which is a magnet for jihadists to help fulfil the ISIS aim of turning Israel into a Muslim country that is to be part of an Islamic Caliphate.

Hamas is mild stuff compared with ISIS in terms bravado, making it attractive to wannabe gung-ho jihadists.

“Unfortunately, lately we’ve been hearing about a lot of youths and men of religion who support the Islamic State. I don’t understand this. This is an organization that must be classified as a first-class terror organization,” A Galilee Muslim cleric told Yediot Acharonot.

As previously reported, several Arabs from Israel, including some from Judea and Samaria, have joined Al Qaeda and rebel forces fighting Syrian President Bassar al-Assad.

ISIS flags are the new rage in Israel, and several have been seen flying in Israeli cities.

Where in the World is Mohammed Zoabi?

Sunday, September 28th, 2014

Many of you who have been following the Muqata FB page know about the Israeli-Arab Zionist teenager, Mohammed Zoabi – who proudly expressed his support for Israel, and not only condemned the kidnapping of the 3 Jewish teens this summer (as opposed to his infamous cousin, MK Hanin Zoabi — the Hamas cheerleader in the Knesset), yet young Mohammed also threatened the terrorist kidnappers that they should return the kidnapped teens safe and sound if they knew what was good for them.

Mohammed was ultimately correct, and while the 3 teens were already murdered at the time unbeknownst to us all, — the terrorists who kidnapped and murdered the teens were all killed by the IDF.

Unfortunately, while Mohammad is a great example of loyalty, he received death threats and the police even uncovered a kidnapping plot against him — by his own relatives!

They planned to take him to a PA controlled city…for him to be “reprogrammed” and taught a lesson what happens when an Israeli Arab dares express loyalty to the State of Israel.

We reported all this while it was happening, and then Mohammed went underground for his own safety.

We respected his privacy…and kept him out of our newsfeed.

Today… in an article in Yisrael HaYom, we learn that not only has Mohammed gone underground — he has LEFT ISRAEL for his own safety.

What a tragedy that a brave Arab teenager has to flee Israel — the same revolting Palestinian terrorism that he spoke out against, has been used against him to silence his criticism of terrorism and his loyalty to the State of Israel.

Mohammed Zoabi — where ever you are, we pray for your safety, and thank you for your loyalty.

An Israeli-Arab Bedouin Sheikh arrives at Beer Sheva Saroka hospital yesterday to distribute flowers to wounded IDF soldiers.

Each flower had a note attached to it, “We’re all in this together”.

Bill Introduced to Strip MK Hanin Zoabi of Citizenship

Thursday, July 24th, 2014

The Yisrael Beytenu Knesset faction introduced a law on Wednesday to strip Knesset members of their parliamentary seat, and their citizenship, if they are found to have backed and endorsed terrorism.

The move is aimed at Israeli Arab Balad MK Hanin Zoabi, who has expressed pro-Hamas views from the podium of the Knesset and in 2010 joined a foreign anti-Israel flotilla aimed at breaking the counter terrorism blockade of Gaza. Zoabi is being investigated in connection with her incessant anti-Israel incitement and possibly treasonous actions, particularly in wartime.

In the past, her predecessor in the same political party, Israeli Arab MK Azmi Bishara, was under investigation for similar activities and was about to be charged with treason when he fled the country.

Abu Ghosh Resident Charged with Arson

Tuesday, July 1st, 2014

A resident of the Israeli Arab village of Abu Ghosh has been indicted on charges of starting a forest fire in the area west of Jerusalem.

Abu Ghosh, friendly to Israelis for decades, is comprised mostly of Christian Arabs and is extremely popular both locally and abroad for its world-famous hummus.

Apparently one of its residents is not nearly as friendly to Israel, however. An indictment was filed in Jerusalem District Court on Tuesday against 19 year old Sa’id Abd al-Rahman, charging him with arson.

Rahman was accused of igniting a fire, using a lighter, last Sunday at a grove on HaTamar Street. He allegedly lit the blaze after a number of other fires were already burning in the area, according to the indictment.

Firefighters succeeded in extinguishing the blaze within 15 minutes – though not before half a dunam (1/8 acre) of forested land had already been destroyed.

The crime may indicate that Rahman intended to participate in an act of arson terror, a relatively new recent type of terrorism being perpetrated against Israeli by Palestinian Authority and Israeli Arabs especially in forested areas.

Probe to be Launched Against MK Hanin Zoabi?

Monday, June 23rd, 2014

Will the State of Israel at last investigate the actions of MK Hanin Zoabi? The decision is up to Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein and State Prosecutor Shai Nitzan.

But if they give a green light, police have recommended the government take a look into whether MK Hanin Zoabi has crossed the line into criminal incitement with her constant barbs against the State of Israel.

The straw that may have broken the camel’s back, finally, was an interview Zoabi gave – and a follow-up – in the wake of the terrorist kidnapping of three yeshiva boys who were hitchhiking home from Gush Etzion on June 12. Zoabi declared on TLV1 Radio that the kidnappers – discovered by Israeli intelligence to irrefutably to have been members of the Hamas terrorist organization – were “not terrorists.”

Instead, Zoabi declared, “They are not terrorists. I do not agree with you. They see no other way to change their reality and have to restort to these measures until Israel sobers up and feels the suffering of the others.”

In fact, she later added that perhaps it was Israel’s Defense Forces who were the terrorists, and maybe the boys weren’t kidnapped at all. She then accused the Palestinian Authority security forces of “treason” for cooperating with Israel to search for the kidnapped boys.

Knesset members from one end of the political spectrum to the other condemned her remarks with many calling for her dismissal – but Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein pointed out that he has no recourse to do so under Israeli law.

Zoabi has often made remarks — and acted — in ways that are more in line with representing the interests of the Palestinian Authority than those of the State of Israel, in whose parliament she participates.

In 2010 she supported and even participated in an illegal flotilla intended to violate Israel’s legal boundaries and break Israel’s maritime blockade of Gaza. That blockade is a defense against terrorist imports of weapons and ammunition that are used in attacks on civilians and IDF soldiers.

She has also been photographed in past years at unauthorized meetings with Hamas officials from Gaza.

The participation of an Israeli parliamentarian whose loyalty is questionable is deeply troubling because as a member of the government, she automatically has access to highly sensitive security information.

Several years ago, her predecessor in the Balad party, former MK Azmi Bishara, fled the country just prior to being charged with treason. Bishara was suspected of receiving large sums of money in exchange for handing over information on sensitive military sites and other security information to the enemy during the 2006 Second Lebanon War. He has since traveled from one enemy Arab nation to the next, broadcasting poisonous lectures against the State of Israel and recruiting terrorists for attacks against the country. For a long time he also managed to also draw a Knesset member’s pension for his time served as a legislator, since he succeeded in fleeing abroad before ever being charged with a crime.
