Ashdod Joins Ashkelon to Impose Racism to Stop Terrorism

Thursday, November 20th, 2014

Ashdod and at least one moshav farming community joined Ashkelon Thursday to declare that Arabs will not be allowed to work in the area of kindergartens despite widespread condemnation from political leaders.

Ashkelon Mayor Itamar Shimoni got the ball rolling with his public announcement Wednesday that no Arabs are welcome, as reported here. He not only refused to back down on Thursday but also stood his ground that his decision is legal because of the need for security.

Justice Minister Tzipi Livni said she has asked the Attorney General to enforce the law against discrimination and stop Shimoni in his tracks. Yesh Atid chairman Yair Lapid called Mayor Shimoni’s policy a surrender to terror and a denial of co-existence.

Jewish Home party Naftali Bennett took the opportunity to show a liberal face of the national religious community and went off the edge to declare that “99.9 percent of Israeli Arabs are loyal to the country.”

Everyone is racing, no pun intended, to show he is the most democratic politician since ancient Greece, even if it was not so democratic.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said, “There can be no discrimination against Israeli Arabs. We must not generalize about an entire public due to a small and violent minority. The vast majority of Israel’s Arab citizens are law-abiding and whoever breaks the law – we will take determined and vigorous action against him.”

Lest anyone think Netanyahu is flying on a left wing, he added that “in the framework of the draft nationality law that I will submit to the Cabinet on Sunday, we will enshrine the full equality before the law of every citizen regardless of religion, race or sex alongside ensuring Israel’s identity as the national state of the Jewish People.”

Mayor Shimoni’s declaration brought out the gut feeling of Israelis who reacted to Tuesday’s massacre of Jews praying in a Jerusalem synagogue exactly the way future murderers want – fear.

His ban on Arab workers in the vicinity of kindergartens comes on the background of trauma in the city from more than a decade of rocket and missile attacks on the port cities of Ashdod and Ashkelon.

It took the mayor’s statements to arouse Israel’s yellow journalist media to take a break from its own racism the past week that has tried to demonstrate that Israeli Arabs as a whole are at war against Israel.

Bennett grossly exaggerated to say that 99.9 percent of Israeli Arabs are loyal to the country. Netanyahu was more on the mark when he said a majority, without measuring it, are “law-abiding.”

Mayor Shimoni hit a raw nerve

Placing all Arabs in one basket of terror is racist, illegal and immoral.

It also expresses a frustration that the police must heed so that Israelis can be safe.

US Says Har Nof Murders Were Well-Planned and not ‘Lone Terrorism’

Wednesday, November 19th, 2014

The United States stated that Tuesday’s barbaric murders of four Jews praying in a Jerusalem synagogue “differs from recent attacks, potentially demonstrating low-level coordination to attack a pre-identified soft target as opposed to an opportunistic random act of violence.”

A Druze policeman who helped kill the Arab murderers and prevent a worse tragedy also was killed.

A statement from the U.S. Consulate in Jerusalem added that it cannot confirm the claim of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) that it organized and carried out the brutal killings.

It also said there has been no information indicating that the Arab murderers intentionally targeted Americans. Three of the worshippers who were killed were native Americans, and the fourth man was originally from Britain.

The U.S, statement contradicted a claim Tuesday by Israel Police Commissioner Yochanan Danino said the attack appeared to be carried out “lone terrorists,” but he added the police have not completed their investigation.

“Lone wolves” have carried out several murderous attacks on Israelis the past two or three years, leaving Israelis in increasing panic that anyone can wake up one day and decide the time has come for him to kill Jews while shouting “Allahu Akba” on his way to the Land of 72 Virgins.

Israel’s establishment media, which for years has campaigned for the “Two-State” illusion and for releasing thousands of Palestinian Authority terrorists, now are scaring the wits out of everyone by screaming that the Netanyahu government is not providing citizens with security.

Israelis must not let the medias establishment, which partially caused the breakdown of Israeli security and now is pointing fingers elsewhere, get away with it.

For once, the United States has it right. The primitive murders in the Har Nof synagogue were not a spontaneous attack. The timing may have had something to do with the blood libel that Israeli “settlers” supposedly “executed” an eastern Jerusalem Arab bus driver who, according to pathology reports prepared by an Arab as well as by Jews, committed suicide.

Whether or not the attack itself was well-planned, as the Consulate said it was, the killers escaped Israel intelligence. The Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) may have goofed by not following the cousins who carried out the attack and whose families have a record of involvement in terror, but count on officials to widen a dragnet over potential murderers.

The government is not going to abandon Jerusalem.

During the Oslo War days of suicide bombings, before the security fence reduced them to almost zero, Israelis bounced back immediately to populate the same areas where the murderers struck. Likewise, Jewish Home chairman Naftali Bennett and Yesh Atid Knesset Member Dov Lipman were among dozens of Jews who rushed on Wednesday to pray at the Kehillat Bnei Torah synagogue where the killers struck during prayer service yesterday.

“The terrorists accomplished nothing by their horrific murders” because although four Jews were murdered, the Jewish People live, said Lipman. “I was inspired by the intensity of this morning’s prayers and was touched deeply by the cries and tears of those who publicly gave thanks to God for surviving yesterday’s attack,” he said.

Israel obviously cannot defend citizens against every “lone terrorist,” but the death that Tuesday’s killers met and the government decision to deport to Judea and Samaria the wife of one of the terrorists are the first steps to strike fear back into the hearts of would-be murderers.

Israel must not show fear. It must make the enemy afraid.

 

Netanyahu Says ‘Recent’ Arab Terror Is Continuation of 66-Year-Old War

Tuesday, November 11th, 2014

The recent escalation in terrorism against Israel is part of a campaign that “has continued since the foundation of the state and even before then,” Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu told an urgent Security Cabinet meeting Tuesday night.

He accused Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas of not being a “partner” in the war on terror and that “instead of calming the situation he is inflaming it…and disseminating lies.”

Prime Minister Netanyahu assured Israeli citizens that all security forces in the country are taking measures to protect Israelis and that “we have defeated terrorism until today and we will defeat it this time as well.”

Netanyahu called the meeting in the wake of two deaths at the hands of two Arab terrorists in separate attacks on Monday and hundreds if not thousands of riots, rock-throwing attacks, shootings and attempted murders the past several weeks.

“We are in the midst of a campaign of incitement and terrorism directed against the State of Israel and its citizens,” he said at the end of the meeting and in a statement for the media.

He noted, “This campaign has continued since the foundation of the state and even before then.

Prime Minister Netanyahu explained that he convened the meeting to update it on decisions made with the IDF, the Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) and the police to increase forces on the ground.

Measures that will be taken include “the demolition of terrorists’ homes; a strong hard and more severe punishment of those who throw stones, bottles, fireworks and firebombs; fines for the parents of children and young people who throw stones; [and] the outlawing of those elements that are stirring up unrest in Jerusalem.”

All of these measures have been previously reported this week, but the convening of the Security Cabinet at night and the public statement reflect a wide public fear that Israel is facing an Arab Spring rebellion or nationwide intifada.

“The terrorism being directed against us knows no borders,” Netanyahu stated. “It is trying to uproot us from all parts of the country. From the terrorists’ point-of-view, we do not need to be in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Gush Etzion or anywhere.

“They will not succeed. Even the attempt by extremist Islamic elements to ignite the ground and cause a religious war will not succeed.”

His harsh words for Abbas coincide with hints from the Obama administration that it finally is admitting that perhaps Abbas is not the greatest thing for Israel since Yasser Arafat.

U.S. State Dept. spokeswoman Jen Psaki finally admitted on Monday, after being questioned Palestinian Authority incitement, that “we would like to see President Abbas do more” to condemn incitement. That, of course, is not going to happen unless Abbas suddenly decides to condemn himself.

Netanyahu spelled it out for Psaki, her boss U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and all of the other peace groupies that’s how symptoms of a severe overdose.

“To my regret, Abu Mazen is not a partner in this effort,” the Prime Minister stated. “On the contrary, today, Abu Mazen has again proven that he is irresponsible. Instead of calming the situation he is inflaming it. Instead of speaking the truth, he is disseminating lies to the effect that we intend, or are operating in some way, to change the status of the holy places – this is a gross lie.

“Instead of educating his people for peace, Abu Mazen is educating them for terrorism. The sad thing is that the international community that rushes to condemn every balcony that we build in our capital city, simply ignores this wild incitement of Abu Mazen’s and thus it encourages him to continue actions that could ignite the entire Middle East.”

Netanyahu to Arab Rioters: If You Don’t Like It Here, Go to Ramallah

Monday, November 10th, 2014

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu told Arabs who carry Israeli citizenship, incite against the country and attack Jews that “if you don’t like it there, you are welcome to go to the Palestinian Authority or Gaza.”

He assured them, “We won’t try to stop you.”

The Israeli government, particularly the state prosecutor and the judicial system, for years has returned the other cheek to a wild escalation of traitorous activities of insurrection by Israeli Arabs who call for a “one-state” of Israel that would include all of the Palestinian Authority and reduce Jews to a minority after the supposed importation of several million foreign Arabs wearing the disguise of “refugees.”

Virtually every poll shows that almost no Arabs in Israel would prefer to live under a Palestinian Authority regime.

Similarly, polls of Arabs in Jerusalem show a crazed desire for the end of the “occupation” but express no wish to give up their social and welfare benefits they enjoy in Israel in return for of becoming citizens of a Palestinian Authority country that is a virtual welfare entity, dependent on foreign contributions.

So far, no Arab with Israeli citizenship has announced he will take up Netanyahu on his dare.

Jewish Man Escapes Taibe Lynch, Car Torched [video]

Monday, November 10th, 2014

A Jewish man, identified as Moshe, visiting friends in the Israeli-Arab town of Taibe escaped with his life, but not his car.

Around twenty masked Arab men from the town surrounded his car and attacked him as he was leaving.

One decent Taibe Arab managed to extricate the Jewish man from the “Allahu Achbar” yelling lynch mob before it was too late, and drove Moshe away in his car.

Without a human target to kill, the rabid Islamic mob torched the man’s car instead.

MDA ambulances were also damaged by Taibe Arabs.

As a result of this pogrom, police prohibited all Jewish traffic on Road 444, north of Kochav Yair (the town where Ehud Barak used to live).

MK Dr. Ahmed Tibi lives in Taibe.

Video from the entrance to Taibe:

In other locations, including Jerusalem, the Galilee, as well as Judea and the Shomron, Arabs attacked Jewish drivers with stones and firebombs.

A woman travelling near Maaleh Shomron with her 5 children came under attack by firebomb and stone throwing Arabs on Sunday. Everyone is safe, but the car suffered damage.

In Jerusalem, a man was lightly injured when Arab stone throwers hit him with stones while he was driving near Neve Yaakov. An ambulance took him to the hospital.

Netanyahu: Cancel Citizenship of ‘Those Who Call to Destroy Israel’

Saturday, November 8th, 2014

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu declared Saturday night that he “will instruct the Interior Minister to evaluate revoking the citizenship of those who call for the destruction of the State of Israel.”

The Prime Minister did not specifically relate to the riots in the northern Israel city of Kfar Kanna on Saturday following the Friday night police action that killed an Arab terrorist whom officers tried to arrest.

Arabs in the city claimed that the terrorist was shot in cold blood.

“Israel is a nation of law. We will not tolerate disturbances and rioting,” said Prime Minister Netanyahu. “We will act against those who throw stones, block roads and call for the establishment of a Palestinian state in place of the State of Israel.

Whoever does not honor Israeli law will be punished with utmost severity.”

Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman, who previously has called on all Israeli citizens to sign a loyalty oath, specifically backed the Public Security Minister Yitzhack Aharonovich, who is responsible for the police.

Netanyahu is sounding more like Avigdor Lieberman every day, perhaps another sign that elections are not so far away.

Arab Revolt in Pictures – from the Northern Israel to Jerusalem

Saturday, November 8th, 2014

Arabs with Israeli citizenship called for a “third intifada” on Saturday in protests in Haifa and trendy neighborhood in Jerusalem and riots in the Galilee in northern Israel, in Jerusalem and Judea and Samaria.

The radical Islamic Movement, whose northern branch is headquartered in Umm el-Fahm in the Lower Galilee, called settlers “dogs” and hailed the Arab terrorist who was killed by police Friday night a “martyr.”

Rock -throwing spread from the usual hotspots in Judea and Samaria to a major highway north of central Israel. Two Egged bus passengers suffered light wounds when rocks were thrown as the bus passed the police station near the Iron Junction, east of Hadera.

A three-year-old child was one of several Jews lightly injured by rock-throwing terrorists near the community of Shilo in Samaria.

Rioters in Jerusalem caused light damage to the light rail system, used by Arabs and Jews.

In the up-scale German Colony neighborhood in Jerusalem, 100 members of the left-wing Hadash party staged a protest blaming the Netanyahu government for the escalation of violence in eastern Jerusalem.

Border Police clashed with rioters in the Muslim Quarter in the Old City of Jerusalem and in eastern Jerusalem.
