Jerusalem Arabs Stone Bus near Mount of Olives

Monday, December 8th, 2014

Jerusalem Arabs attacked a busload of Jews in the area of the Mount of Olives Monday morning, causing damage to the bus but no injuries to the driver and passengers.

As usual, the stone thrower escaped, and as usual, the police were not around.

Why don’t the police escort Jews as the army used to do when terrorists attacked them every day in Judea and Samaria?

Israeli Arab Charged with Trying to Burn Jew to Death

Thursday, December 4th, 2014

A 21-year-old Arab with Israeli citizenship from the city of Taybe, near Netanya, was indicted Thursday for involvement in an attempt to burn a Jewish man alive a month ago

Police said Mohamed Haj Yehia incited violence during the riots last month in Kfar Kana, where a police officer had shot and killed Hir Alhamdan after he tried to attack officers. An edited video purported to show that police shot him in cold blood.

Haj Yahia joined the rioters, who had blocked a road where 47-year-old Moshe German was driving and was forced to stop. Rioters smashed the windows of his car, and Haj Yahia lit fireworks and threw them inside German’s car, igniting the vehicle.

Another Arab, Taybe resident Majdi Baloum, came to his rescue and hustled German into his jeep and sped away, leaving German’s car destroyed by fire.

‘Equal Opportunities’ Chief Rules Out Ashkelon’s Ban on Arab Workers

Thursday, November 20th, 2014

The Commissioner for Equal Employment Opportunities, directly referring to Ashkelon’s ban Arab workers in the area of kindergartens, stated Thursday that the law specifically bans such discrimination.

Tziona Koenig-Yair stated, “During these difficult times, I expect employers to exercise responsibility and leadership to encourage tolerance and equal opportunities, and not exclusion, particularly local authorities such as the Ashkelon municipality, which publicized that it has terminated the employment of Arabs in the municipality, a step which breaks the Equal Opportunities Law.

She said her department “has received a not insignificant number of requests regarding employers firing or wishing to terminate the employment of Arab male and female employees, solely on racial grounds” but that the Equal Opportunities Law “clearly prohibits employers from discriminating against their employees on account of their race, ethnic origin or religion.”

She added, “Local authorities also have public responsibility towards all their residents, Jews and Arabs alike.

“Such authorities must show leadership and act to calm the storm, and not take collective action which may fan the flames. We all need to work together to improve the situation, and continue to work towards equality and tolerance for all citizens of the State of Israel, both Jews and Arabs.”

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.
