Palestinian Authority Terrorists Wound 4-Year-Old Girl with Firebomb

Saturday, October 24th, 2015

Palestinian Authority terrorists celebrated another Day of Rage Friday by throwing a firebomb at Jewish family in a vehicle north of Jerusalem and wounding five people, including a four-year-old girl.

The family was driving on Highway 60 near Beit El in Samaria before Shabbat when the Molotov cocktail was hurled at their car.

The parents and two children suffered light burns.

The little girl, her parents and siblings were rushed to Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital.

The Palestinian Authority calls terrorist attacks “acts of resistance” which on Friday included riots, rock-throwing and other firebomb attacks throughout Judea and Samaria. One of their targets was Rachel’s Tomb, which UNESCO declared this week is a Muslim site even though it existed long before the founding of Islam.


Palestinian Authority and Fatah at Odds on How to Kill Jews

Thursday, October 22nd, 2015

The Palestinian Authority and Fatah are in the midst of rare disagreement. To be specific, what is the preferred method to murder Jews?

Abbas, who still is considered Israel’s “peace partner” by the world, never, never urges Arabs to go out and kill Jews. He simply calls on them to continue the “resistance,” the wink-wink word for terror.

The Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) has translated and published recent cartoons posted on the Fatah and Palestinian Authority official web pages, and they illustrate the different tactics to carry out the same strategy.

Rock-throwing, which has killed several Jews either through a direct hit or by causing the driver to lose control of his vehicle and crash, has a romantic lure for media that always are looking for a nice angle that can show terrorists as lovers of freedom who use David’s weapon against Goliath to face the monstrous Goliaths they try to destroy.

How can anyone accuse the Palestinian Authority of encouraging terror when all it does is post a cartoon of rock-throwers, while the Fatah party that Abbas heads publicizes caricatures of Arabs stabbing Jews to death to fulfilling their “national duty,” as PLO Executive Committee member Mahmoud Ismail said and as reported here two weeks ago.

Here is a cartoon provided by PMW and which was published this week by the Palestinian Authority official daily Al-HayatAl-Jadida. Note how happy the children are when they throw rocks with slingshots, great stuff for anyone who sees children as victims and not terrorists.



The same daily two weeks ago published a “weather forecast” of rocks falling like rain on Israeli soldiers:



But the Abbas-led Faith party, unlike his Palestinian Authority regime, goes for the jugular.

PMW posted the following cartoon that was published in on Faith’s Facebook page, although the official Palestinian Authority daily saw it fit to post them also.

Perhaps, they wanted to give “equal time” to the “opposition.”

Mistaken for Terrorist, Man Killed in Jerusalem

Wednesday, October 21st, 2015

It was a tragic, horrible case of mistaken identity that ended in rage and tears.

Witnesses say two security officials began to board an Egged bus in the Romema section of Jerusalem late Wednesday night — but a passenger who was disembarking became suspicious, and asked them to show their IDs.

One of the soldiers responded by asking the passenger for his ID as well.

An argument then ensued, with the passenger possibly attacking the soldier, and may have tried to grab his gun.

A shot rang out.

And now a Jew is dead.

The current wave of terror has brought everyone’s tolerance for tension to the edge, with each person looking twice at the next and double-checking even himself in the mirror in the morning before breakfast.

Some children and even adults are reporting difficulties with falling and staying asleep, and mental health professionals are reporting a higher-than-average incidence of anxiety among populations in larger cities, particularly in Jerusalem.

People who suffer from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) are at particularly high risk for a recurrence of symptoms during these times, and should not hesitate to seek assistance if they experience flashbacks or any other upsetting feelings at any time.

In Jerusalem, Shaare Zedek Medical Center is available to provide support to anyone who is experience extreme anxiety, regardless of medical insurance coverage or ability to pay, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Simply go to the hospital emergency room and request assistance at the desk.

Likewise, Health Ministry mental health clinics around the city are also providing supportive counseling as well for those who feel overwhelmed by the current situation.

Netanyahu Attacks Deniers of Mufti-Holocaust Links

Wednesday, October 21st, 2015

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu preceded his flight to Germany Wednesday for a meeting Chancellor Angela Merkel with by rejecting criticism of his remarks last night that linked Mufti al-Husseini with the Holocaust.

Opposition leader Yitzchak Herzog, his cohorts on Israel Radio’s Kol Yisrael (Reshet Bet) and the Palestinian Authority were all over the Prime Minister Wednesday morning, accusing him of re-writing history and inciting Arabs.

Prime Minister Netanyahu’s comments on the Mufti during his speech to the World Jewish Congress were perfectly timed, giving him ammunition to carry with him when talking with Merkel about Palestinian Authority incitement.

He rejected criticism that his comments implied that Hitler was not responsible for the slaughter of 6 million Jews, and he explained:

It is absurd. I had no intention to absolve Hitler of responsibility for his diabolical destruction of European Jewry. Hitler was responsible for the Final Solution to exterminate six million Jews. He made the decision.

It is equally absurd to ignore the role played by the Mufti, Haj Amin al -Husseini, a war criminal, for encouraging and urging Hitler, Ribbentropp, Himmler and others, to exterminate European Jewry. There is much evidence about this, including the testimony of Eichmann’s deputy at the Nuremberg trials, not now, but after World War II. He said:

He replied to Arab criticism that he false accused the Mufti of advising Hitler to burn Jews and said:

There is much evidence about this, including the testimony of Eichmann’s deputy at the Nuremberg trials, not now, but after World War II. He said:

‘The Mufti was instrumental in the decision to exterminate the Jews of Europe. The importance of his role must not be ignored. The Mufti repeatedly proposed to the authorities, primarily Hitler, Ribbentropp and Himmler, to exterminate the Jews of Europe. He considered it a suitable solution for the Palestinian question’.

Eichmann’s deputy, added:

‘The Mufti was one of the instigators of the systematic extermination of European Jewry and was a partner and adviser to Eichmann and Hitler for carrying out this plan’.

He reminded listeners that “Haj Amin al-Husseini is still a revered figure in Palestinian society. He appears in textbooks and it is taught that he is one of the founding fathers of the nation, and this incitement that started then with him, inciting the murder of Jews – continues.

Ban Ki-moon Calls Emergency UN Session on ‘Violence’

Wednesday, October 21st, 2015

United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has requested a special closed-door emergency session with the UN Security Council at 10 pm Israel time Wednesday night to brief world leaders on the “violence between Israelis and Palestinians,” as he described it to reporters in Jerusalem.

The UN leader made his request Wednesday morning by video-conference from the Palestinian Authority capital city of Ramallah.

Ban arrived in Israel on a surprise visit to the region, warning of an escalation “into a religious conflict with potential regional implications.”

He told reporters in Jerusalem on Tuesday, “Security measures can be counterproductive if they are applied without special efforts to defuse the situation before people lose their lives.

“My visit reflects the sense of global alarm at the dangerous escalation in violence between Israelis and Palestinians,” Ban declared. “I am here to encourage and support all efforts to lower tensions and prevent the situation from spinning out of control.”

The UN chief expressed his condolences to the families and loved ones of all the victims of the hostilities and terrorist attacks. “No society should have to live in fear,” he said. “No society can afford to see its youth suffer in hopelessness.”

Ban said that ‘if action is not taken fast’ the dynamics on the ground may only get worse, “with serious repercussions in and beyond Israel and Palestine.”

“It is not too late to avoid a broader crisis,” he said. “In my meetings today and tomorrow with the Israeli and Palestinian leadership, I will be appealing to all to take concerted steps to limit new incidents on both sides. Violence only begets violence.”

He said that extremists on either side, or those who think violence is the answer, must not be allowed to further fuel the conflict.

“Beyond the immediate tensions, what is missing is the resolve to restore a political horizon for talks, and a political process that delivers real results and hope,” Ban said. “Violence only undermines the legitimate Palestinian aspirations for statehood and the longing of Israelis for security.”

Underlining that “the status quo is only making things worse,” the Secretary-General stated that ‘this conflict has gone on for far too long.’

“We must, for the future of our children, turn back from this dangerous abyss, safeguard the two-state solution and lead people back onto the road towards peace,” he urged, adding that the UN, and himself as Secretary-General, will ‘continue to support all efforts to create the conditions for a return to meaningful negotiations and a just and lasting peace.’

During his day in Israel, Ban met with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and President Reuven Rivlin. He told the prime minister he understands the duty weighing on him to ensure that his citizens can enjoy safety and security. He also urged Israel to guard against violent incidents, and to conduct thorough investigations when necessary.

“Mr. Prime Minister, the security challenges your government is currently facing raise many complicated dilemmas and may require tightening of security measures,” the UN chief said in a news conference.

“However, security measures can be counterproductive if they are applied without special efforts to defuse situations before people lose their lives. If the use of force is not properly calibrated, it may breed the very frustrations and anxieties, from which violence tends to erupt,” he said.

Arab leaders have accused Israel of “excessive force” used in the response to the savage terror attacks carried out by suicidal young Arabs who are intent on becoming the latest movie star martyr to be featured on Arab TV.

A young teenage Arab girl who disappeared from her home in southern Israel this week happily sent SMS texts to her friends a few days ago that soon “they will see me on TV.”

Police Officer Hurt in Arab Checkpoint Ramming Near Ofra

Wednesday, October 21st, 2015

An Israeli police officer was wounded Wednesday when an Arab driver in a car with Israeli license plates rammed through a checkpoint north of Jerusalem, and then fled into an Arab village.

The suspected terror attack took place near the Jewish community of Ofra, at a checkpoint on Highway 60, near Shechem (Nablus), in Samaria.

The police officer had motioned to the driver to stop the car for a routine search.

According to local sources the vehicle slowed down, but then speeded up again and raced through the checkpoint.

One officer sustained a leg wound.

Police shot towards the vehicle, which kept going until it was well past the checkpoint, stopping several hundred meters away.

The driver then got out of the car, abandoning his vehicle and running on foot towards the nearby Palestinian Arab village of Silwad.

The vehicle is currently being scrutinized as military police and IDF forces comb the surrounding area for the perpetrator.

The IDF has blockaded a number of roads in the area in an effort to prevent the suspect from escaping.
