Arsonists Attacks Christian Seminary in Jerusalem

Thursday, February 26th, 2015

Arsonists damaged a Greek Orthodox seminary in Jerusalem’s Old City in the pre-dawn hours Thursday, and spray-painted anti-Christian graffiti.

No one was injured, and damage was minimal.

A Greek Church archbishop said two people who hid their faces three a flammable liquid at a bathroom in the seminary, located on Mt. Zion (Hat Tzion).

He said there have been previous threats from people whom he described as religious Jews.

Newspapers in the United States carried a report of the fire, which further blackens the image of Israel and of Orthodox Jews.

Another attack, this time on a mosque in Judea and Samaria, was reported Wednesday.

Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat vigorously condemned the apparent arson attack and said, “There is no room for such deplorable activity in Jerusalem. We must eradicate this behavior and bring those responsible to justice.”

The Mayors of Two Great Cities Meet

Nir Barkat is the mayor of Jerusalem, but Bill de Blasio is the mayor of the city with the largest Jewish community.

Likud and Bujie-Livni Use Stabbing Attack to Stab Each Other

Monday, February 23rd, 2015

The Likud and the Herzog-Livni “Zionist Camp” parties attached each other for being soft on security only hours after a Palestinian Authority Arab stabbed a Haredi man in his stomach near City Hall in Jerusalem.

Mayor Nir Barkat was at the scene and helped tackled the attacker, whose victim suffered moderate wounds in his stomach.

The terrorist attack and Barkat’s action did not interest the two major parties in the election. Instead, they continued to stab each other below the belt with personal insults, continuing a campaign absent of reason and logic.

The Likud started the verbal free-for-all by suggesting that the terrorist attack was a result of Tzipi Livni’s remarks that dividing Jerusalem is an option.

The Likud’s statement declared:

If Tzipi and Bujie [Yitzchak Herzog] form a left-wing government – Hamas will be in the heart of Jerusalem.

That is the way this campaign has been going. The price of water, determined by experts in the bureaucracy, goes down, and everyone takes credit. An Arab terrorist attacks, and all of a sudden it is because someone said something, or did not say something.

It didn’t take long for Herzog-Livni to react on Facebook, writing that the Likud disseminated “another lowly and despicable lie from the man who is personally responsible for the loss of security in the capital.”

Here we go again.  Netanyahu is “personally” responsible? And was Livni “personally responsible” for every terrorist attack when she was acting Prime Minister Ehud Olmert quit?

And do Israelis feel any less secure now than they did when Livni was Prime Minister.

Livni, who still acts like her figment of a politician, as usual could not restrain herself from showing everyone that she is as lowly and despicable as Netanyahu. She accused him of “dancing on the blood” of the victim of the stabbing attack and using it to win more votes, which may be true but is exactly what she is doing.

The good news is that we are less than four weeks away from the end of this disastrous campaign.

Jerusalem Mayor Captures Terrorist Who Stabbed Haredi Man [video]

Sunday, February 22nd, 2015

A Palestinian Authority Arab terrorist wounded a Haredi man in his stomach with a knife Sunday evening and then was jumped on by Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat who was walking on his way to his municipal office.

The victim, Abraham Goldstein, age 37, is in moderate condition after being attacked at Kikar Tzahal, between Jerusalem’s Municipality building and the Old City of Jerusalem.

The PA terrorist was in Jerusalem illegally.

In the first security video we see the mayor (wearing a white shirt) capturing the terrorist.

In the second video we see the mayor and his bodyguard manhandling the attacker in a video provided by the 0404 website.

How many mayors do you know that have captured a terrorist?

Muslims Show ‘Respect’ For Temple Mount with Snowball Fight [video]

Saturday, February 21st, 2015

Israeli Arabs, Christians and Jews are no different when it comes to enjoying snow, which is always a holiday in Israel except for those in the Upper Golan Heights, where snow is a routine as sun in the summer.

But a snowball fight among Jews at the Western Wall Plaza is unimaginable. Even Haredim and women did not toss snow on each other on “white Friday,” which also was Rosh Chodesh, when Women of the Wall make their monthly pilgrimage to show they are different from Orthodox men who pray there every day.

Up on the Temple Mount’s Al Aqsa mosque compound the Muslims’ third holiest site, things were different, as seen in the video below.

Perhaps they simply were staying in shape to throw stones at Jews.

Palestinian Authority Resumes Religious War on Temple Mount

Friday, February 20th, 2015

The Palestinian Authority has renewed incitement over the Temple with accusations that Israel is guilty of “over 100 attacks” on the holy site, following nearly half a year of relative calm.

King Abdullah of Jordan and Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu met several months ago and each side took steps for calm and to end daily clashes on the holy sites and a spate of barbaric terrorist attacks on Jews.

Israeli ministers stopped uttering statements that Jews one day will rebuild the Third Temple, and they suddenly dropped off the front pages by not grabbing headlines with high-profile visits.

Jordan made it clear to the Palestinian Authority that the “status quo” allows Jews to visit the holy site, so long as they don’t pray there, and Palestinian Authority news agencies stopped reporting that Jews were “invading” and “storming the Temple Mount.

Things are way too calm for the Palestinian Authority, whose officials uttered several gems of incitement by Palestinian Authority officials this past month and which were translated and published by the Palestinian Media Watch, which summarized:

The three most important PA religious leaders have all stated this month that Al-Aqsa is threatened by Israel. This religious incitement in the name of the Al-Aqsa Mosque is exactly what Mahmoud Abbas and his Fatah party used to incite Palestinians to carry out acts of terror, including murder, during the recent two-month terror campaign in Jerusalem. During October and November 2014, Palestinians murdered 11 Israelis using guns, knives, and cars, and wounded dozens.

At that time, Palestinian Media Watch documented  that Abbas’ Advisor on Religious Affairs Mahmoud Al-Habbash acknowledged the PA leadership’s full endorsement of the killings:

‘We kiss every forehead, every hand and even every foot that carries out Ribat (religious conflict/ war over land claimed to be Islamic) at the Al-Aqsa Mosque and in Jerusalem.”

PA Mufti Sheikh Muhammad Hussein on February 12 that said that Israel aspires “to build the alleged Temple on the ruins of the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque.”

Abbas’ Advisor on Religious and Islamic Affairs Mahmoud Al-Habbash, speaking a day earlier, said that UNESCO must prevent Israel from “destroying the human heritage in Jerusalem.”

The PA Minister of Religious Affairs Sheikh Yusuf Ida’is warned on February 5 that since January, Israel has carried out “over 100  attacks and incidents of desecration of the Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Ibrahimi Mosque [Cave of the Patriarchs in Hebron]” and that “the Al-Aqsa Mosque is in grave and direct danger and that with every sunrise, this danger grows.”

Muslim leaders are absolutely paranoid of Jews being near the Temple Mount.

The Mufti, in his remarks published in the Arabic edition of the Ma’an News Agency and translated by PMW, went ballistics over a sign showing Jews and others the direction to the Temple Mount. Ma’an wrote:

The Grand Mufti of Jerusalem and the Palestinian Territories and Preacher at the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque Sheikh Muhammad Hussein warned about the placement of a sign by the occupation municipality near the Council Gate [entrance to the Al-Aqsa Mosque on the Temple Mount), with the inscription, ‘Temple Mount’ ….

The Mufti explained that with the elections of the occupation authorities approaching, all the parties are trying to draw the votes of the extreme right by increasing the attack on the Palestinian people and its holy places.

Abbas’ adviser al-Habbash also spun out of control over the “threatening” sign and “warned of the severity of the escalatory measure implemented by the Israeli occupation municipality crews, in placing a sign in Arabic, Hebrew and English calling the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque “the Temple of Solomon.”

Al-Habbash said that Israel’s changing of names in the Holy City “is a kind of intentional falsification of history and heritage, and a desperate attempt to deny the [city’s] Arab and Islamic character and force a new, invented character – the Jewish character. He noted that this was a most dangerous step, heralding grave consequences. “
