Ambassador to UN Prosor Expects It to Condemn PA Terror

Wednesday, July 1st, 2015

Israeli Ambassaodr Ron Prosor to the United Nations wrote to the undistinguished body Tuesday that he expects it to condemn the latest Palestinian Authority terrorist attack, which killed Malachi Moshe Rosenfeld and wounded three others Monday night.

Prosor noted that since the beginning of the Muslim month of Ramadan, which they consider so holy that it drives them into a frenzy to try to murder Jews and Christians, “There has been a dramatic increase in attacks against Israelis – part of a global surge of terrorism.”

He stated:

I write to you for the second time in less than two weeks to ​inform you that yet another citizen of Israel has been brutally murdered by Palestinian terrorists…..

Each day seems to bring with it news of a shooting attack, or a stabbing. Just yesterday, a terrorist stabbed a 19-year old female soldier next to Rachel’s Tomb, causing severe injuries. These attacks are a direct result of incitement by the Palestinian Authority in the media and in its education system. Even after this latest incident, the leadership of the PA remains silent, failing to condemn the murder of innocent people.

Prosor noted that the United Nations condemned “in the strongest terms” last week’s terror stacks in France, Tunisia and Kuwait.”

Fulfilling his role as ambassador, he went through he motions to demand that the United Nations also condemn the murders of Jews by Palestinian Authority terrorists, and wrote:

We join in your call that ‘those responsible for these appalling acts of violence must be swiftly brought to justice’  and that ‘these heinous attacks will only strengthen the commitment of the United Nations to help defeat those bent on murder, destruction and the annihilation of human development and culture.

I expect you to condemn the terrorist attacks in Israel in an equally decisive manner.

Terror is terror, no matter where it takes place, or who is harmed. The people of Israel deserve the same level of concern and empathy as any other people in the world.

Nice try, Ron.

If the United Nations does actually condemn the murder, it will be done so with a “balanced” resolution that also condemned the “war crime” that Rosenfeld committed by living in Samaria, which Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas has stated over and over will be an Arab country closed to Jews, a volition of the U.N. charter.

 

 

Victim of Palestinian Authority Shooting Attack Dies

Tuesday, June 30th, 2015

 

Malachi Moshe Rosenfeld died late Tuesday afternoon from gunshot wounds inflicted by two Palestinian Authority terrorists Monday night.

There others were wounded in the attack that has not been condemned by Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas.

The IDF believes that the murder, unlike several “lone wolf” attacks, was carried out by a terrorist cell that is responsible for previous attempts to kill Jews.

Rosenfeld and his friends were returning from a basketball game in a vehicle when the terrorist opened fire in a “drive-by” attack near the community of Shiloh. He was evacuated by helicopter, but doctors were unable to save his life.

The attackers pumped more than a dozen bullets into the car and continued firing until the driver turned off the road towards the community of Migdalim and the passengers called for help.

The IDF still is looking for the terrorists, who arable to travel freely on the highway with no checkpoints except at the security fence, part of “good will measures” instituted by former Defense Minister Ehud Barak and continued in the Netanyahu administration to bolster Abbas’ position.

Palestinian Authority Incites Summer Camp Kids with AK-47 Rifles

Tuesday, June 30th, 2015

The Palestinian Authority has copied Hamas’ version of summer camp for children and teaches them to dance in military uniforms, holding assault rifles and reciting anti-Zionist slogans.

The Palestinian Authority (PMW) has translated and published the gross incitement of terror by the Abbas regime, which still wins praise from the Obama administration for supposedly renouncing terror and ending incitement.

PA chairman Mahmoud Abbas has not uttered a word on last night’s Palestinian Authority terrorist attack in Samaria that left one person clinging to life and three others with moderate to serious injuries.

The names of the groups of children in the summer camps say it all. One group of 150 children is part of “Martyrs and Prisoners” and participated in the camp known as “Jerusalem in the Eyes of the Lion Cubs and Flowers of Palestine.”

And who runs it? Not the Boy Scouts.

It is operated by the Palestinian Authority’s National Security Forces in coordination with the youth movement in the Fatah party headed by Abbas.

The camp’s activities highlighted by Palestinian Authority media are not tennis or playing tag.

The little kiddies wore military uniforms for the final ceremony of an early summer camp and danced. No, they did not dance with each other. They danced with AK-47 assault files, one of Abbas’ tools to further the peace process and a probably violation of the Geneva Convention

PMW reported that the official Palestinian Authority daily, after Israelis Independent Day (Yom Ha’Atzmaut) included the Al-Asima bi-weekly in which an article referred to Israel as:

The so-called ‘Israel';
The occupation state;
The Zionist entity.

The article also described the Israeli army in the 1948 War for Independence as “90,000 terrorists.”

Another blatant incitement of violence was recorded on a Fatah posting on Facebook last month, where it referred to “the weapon with which we will confront our Zionist enemy.” An image showed from Fatah’s Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades with rifles and rockets:

The posting stated, as translated and published by PMW:

We promise that we will meet the enemy with two weapons in our hands – faith in Allah and in the inevitable victory, and the weapon with which we will confront our Zionist enemy. We will defend the honor of this Arab and Islamic nation. #Al_Aqsa_Martyrs’ Brigades.

Itamar Marcus, the founder and director of Palestinian Media Watch, stated:

The PA message to U.S. leaders in Washington is that they want peace. The PA message to their kids is that killing Israelis is heroic. It’s time the U.S. figured out which is the true message.

Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon directly charged the Palestinian Authority with inciting the latest round of terror that has escalated since the beginning of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan. He said:

People sit during the [Ramadan] holiday in their houses, watch television program and go outside and act [accordingly].

US Churches to Vote on BDS Moves Against Israel, Affecting Millions

Tuesday, June 30th, 2015

Three U.S. churches are voting on resolutions to divest from firms with connections to Israel and support a boycott of the Jewish State.

The votes on the pro-Palestinian Authority resolutions are taking place today (Tuesday, June 30) at the general convention of the Episcopal Church and the Cleveland synod of the United Church of Christ, both to be held in Salt Lake City.

On Wednesday, a similar resolution is to be considered at the meeting of the Mennonites in Kansas City, Missouri.

The three churches represent millions of members in the United States, but the votes taken this week may also affect decisions of churches elsewhere around the world as well.

A year ago, the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church USA voted 310-303 to divest from US firms (Caterpillar, Motorola and Hewlett-Packard) which they complained profit from Israel’s “occupation” of the West Bank. The vote affected some two million members.

An amendment to reinvest the funds in Israeli companies seeking “peaceful solutions” was also rejected. The previous day, the Church also rejected a proposal to send Church leaders to Israel to examine conditions for themselves and present their complaints in person to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu.

Earlier in 2014, the United Methodist Church divested from G4S, a British-Danish firm providing security services to Israeli prisons in which Palestinian Authority terrorists are held.

The anti-Israel Boycott, Divest and Sanctions (BDS) movement, however is actually a thinly-disguised new form of anti-Semitism that has been making its way around the United States for more than a decade.  On U.S. college campuses, it has led to violence against Jewish students as well.

The movement has been particularly effective in the United Kingdom.

A statement on the BDS website describes its campaign against the iconic British Marks & Spencer chain.

“Historically, Marks & Spencer has made statements in support of Zionism,” said a statement on the site. “Lord Sieff, chairman and founder of M&S who died in 2001, made several statements in support of Israel’s military policies. In 1941, Sieff said that “large sections of the Arab population of Palestine should be transplanted to Iraq and other Middle-Eastern Arab States.” (Jewish Chronicle, 21/09/1941) Sieff, in a book entitled On Management: The Marks and Spencer Way, wrote that one of the fundamental objectives of M&S was to ‘aid the economic development of Israel.’”

The statement on the site goes on to cite the history of the chain’s support for Israel – and the effectiveness of the BDS campaign in ceasing that support.

“In 2008, the store wrote: ‘We do not buy products from the West Bank, Golan Heights or Gaza as we cannot safely visit the suppliers in these areas because of the current security situation.” It seems probable that the move to cease selling settlement products was, in fact, due to effective campaigning, protests and fear of adverse press coverage.'”

As a matter of fact, on a recent visit to London, JewishPress.com was told explicitly by a store clerk at Marks & Spencer that the chain carries “no kosher items whatsoever,” be they Israeli or locally produced and supervised.

It appears that the BDS movement against Israel has been shamefully successful in extending its anti-Semitism even in a chain once was owned by a pro-Israel Jewish family.

Moreover, no local kosher supervision was found on products in any major supermarket chains, or even smaller stores (save for one) in most London neighborhoods other than the specifically Jewish areas of Stamford Hill or Golders Green.

The British government has decided it must legally allow a neo-Nazi group to hold an anti-Semitic march in Golders Green this upcoming Sabbath, July 4. The group, led by self-described fascist Joshua Bonehill, is vowing to burn an Israeli flag and a Jewish holy book at its rally in the heart of the Jewish neighborhood that day.

Palestinian Authority Terrorist Fires on Jewish Ambulance in Samaria

Saturday, June 27th, 2015

A Palestinian Authority terrorist fired on a Magen David Adom ambulance near Beit El in Samaria Saturday night.

The ambulance sustained damage, but no one was injured.

The IDF is searching for the terrorist.

Last week, Druze in the Golan Heights ambushed an IDF ambulance that was carrying victims that were wounded in the civil war in Syria.

Attacking an ambulance is a war crime, but the United Nations is unlikely to pay any attention since it was not an Israeli Jew who attacked the vehicle.

Update: Armed Terrorist Shot by IDF at Jordan Valley Highway Checkpoint

Friday, June 26th, 2015

Israeli soldiers shot and critically wounded a Palestinian Authority terrorist who shot at them at a Jordan Valley checkpoint several miles south of Beit Shean Friday morning.

The terrorist had stopped his car at the checkpoint, got out of the vehicle and then shot at the soldiers as he approached them.

Highway 90, the only north-south road that links the Dead Sea with Beit Shean through the Jordan Valley, has been closed in both directions.

This is the handgun a terrorist used to try to murder Israeli Reservists soldiers Friday morning.

Hamas UAV Crashes in Attempt to Invade Israeli Airspace

Thursday, June 25th, 2015

BREAKING NEWS:

An unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) tried to invade Israelis airspace from Gaza but crashed at the security fence shortly after 3 pm. (5 a.m. EDT) Thursday.

The IDF has not stated if the drone was carrying surveillance equipment or an explosive device.

Hamas has tried several times to send UAVs into Gaza, and Hezbollah successfully did so two years ago before the IDF shot it down over the southern Heron Hills, northeast of Be’er Sheva.

Iran, which backs Hezbollah, lately has resumed financing Hamas.

Soldiers from the IDF Engineering Corps forces retrieved the UAV for inspection.

The Air Force said it had been monitoring the drone since it launch, and it scrambled warplanes, which did not have anything to shoot at since it the UAV couldn’t even fly past the security fence.
