Israeli Jew Convicted of Murdering of Jerusalem Muslim Teen

Tuesday, April 19th, 2016

by Michael Bachner/TPS The Jerusalem District Court convicted Yosef Chaim Ben David, 29, on Tuesday morning of the abduction and murder of Jerusalem Arab teenager Mohammed Abu Khdeir in July 2014. The teen was on his way to a mosque in his neighborhood, Shuafat, when he was kidnapped. The incident rattled the region and played a key role in escalating the tensions leading up to the summer war in Gaza.

Ben David, from the community of Adam, was the central suspect in the murder, along with two minors. His verdict was delayed by several months to determine his mental state, following claims by his lawyers that he was mentally ill and not responsible for his actions.

The court, however, ruled that Ben David “was not in a psychotic state, fully understood what he was doing, had control over his actions and had the ability to refrain from committing the crime.”

Abu Khdeir was 16 years old when he was abducted and burned alive in Jerusalem by the three Israeli Jews. The murderers claimed they wanted to avenge the kidnapping and murder of three Jewish teens by Hamas terrorists just days earlier. The two atrocities sent tensions soaring between Israelis and Arabs from the Palestinian Authority and Gaza, culminating in the IDF’s 2014 Gaza campaign, Operation Protective Edge.

Ben David’s two nephews, 16 and 17 years old, were convicted in January of committing the murder along with him. One of them received a life sentence. The other was sentenced to 21 years in prison after the court ruled that he played a lesser role in the murder.

Before the verdict, Abu Khdeir’s father Hussein called on the Israeli government to demolish the homes of his son’s murderers, in keeping with Israeli policy of demolishing the homes of Palestinian Authority terrorists. “We need justice from the court,” he said. “These murderers should have their homes demolished. Such people cannot be granted parole. He needs to serve a life sentence.”

Following the conviction, the state prosecution released a statement saying that Ben David committed the murder “out of nationalistic vengeful motives, also dragging his underage relatives with him who participated in the heinous crime and were sentenced to many years behind bars.”

In the Palestinian Authority and in Gaza, people celebrate the murders of Israeli Jews, honking car horns and passing out sweets to strangers in the streets when an attack has taken place.

Public squares, special events and streets are named for especially “successful” terrorists so their deeds will be remembered and glorified for future generations.

American Jew Arrested for Murmuring Prayers, 2nd Warned to Close Prayer App

Sunday, April 17th, 2016

An American Jewish man was arrested on the Temple Mount on Sunday morning after it was noticed that he was quietly murmuring a prayer, according to a TPS report. At this time it is unknown if the arrested man is an Israeli citizen or a tourist.

A second Jew was warned by the Israeli police that he would be arrested if he didn’t stop looking at the Siddur app on his cellphone. He was not arrested as he wasn’t yet praying at that point.

Prime Minister Netanyahu can relax, his status quo has been upheld.

Sunday, November 29th, 2015

A woman was wounded on Shamgar Street in Jerusalem, near the Osher Ad supermarket, in a second terrorist stabbing attack in Jerusalem on Sunday morning, just after 10 AM.

Seeing the attack, a passing bus driver jumped from his bus, pulled the wounded woman onto his #418 bus and drove her away to safety.

The Arab terrorist then fled into a building construction site in the former Tnuva complex, in the Jerusalem Romema neighborhood, and security forces began searching the very large area.

Update: A suspect believed to be the terrorist has been captured in one of the building sites, after an hour long search.

The suspect, a 17.5 year-old-man from the PA territories has connected himself to the attack. Two additional Arabs from the PA were discovered in the building and also arrested.

Poland Sues U.S. Prof. for Saying Poles Killed Jews than the Germans

Friday, October 16th, 2015

Poland is preparing to sue a Princeton University professor for libel in an article written last month alleging that Poles “in fact did kill more Jews than Germans during the war.”

Professor Jan T, Gross, a Polish-born Jew and historian, also stated that Polish intolerance is behind the country’s agreement to accept only 5,000 Syrian refugees instead of a larger number,

The article was re-published by the German newspaper Die Welt, prompting more than 100 complaints to the office of the Polish prosecutor. The prosecutor’s spokesman Przemyslaw Nowak told Polish television that the country’s criminal code “provides that any person who publicly insults the Polish nation is punishable by up to three years in prison.”

Gross previously has provoked Poland and wrote in a book n 2001 that Poles in the town of Jedwabne massacred several hundred Jews.

Good Jewish Boy from Israel Tries to Join the ISIS

Tuesday, September 1st, 2015

A Foreign Ministry statement Tuesday that an Israeli Jew has been returned home after trying to join the Islamic State (ISIS) leaves too many questions unanswered.

The facts that are known are simple: Turkish officials, despite far from loving relations with Israel, helped nab the 21-year-old man and return him home.

The family of the unidentified youth called the Foreign Ministry last week after their son flew to Crete as a stopover before traveling to Syria, where he would have violated Israeli law by setting foot in the territory of a declared enemy state.

That’s it. Happy ending, except perhaps for the youth.

As for Turkey, it is not surprising that it cooperated because it hates the ISIS much more than it hates Israel.

And now for the unanswered questions:

Is this young man a psychiatric case? Or does he simply live in a movie, albeit a horror film?

Did the ISIS have contact with him? Did the man promise to convert to Islam? Or has he? Did the ISIS plan to show him off as a Jew having found Allah?

Did he want to chop off peoples’ heads? Was he looking for sex slaves?

Did the 21-year-old man serve in the IDF? Is he angry at Israel as an “occupier?

Foreign Ministry spokesman told The Jewish Press Tuesday:

There is nothing to add to what we already have stated.

Our heartfelt concern goes out to the youth’s family, and may no other Jewish family know such sorrow.

Screeching Muslim Women Assault Jewish Man Drinking Water

Thursday, June 4th, 2015

A Jewish man went to get a drink of water from the public water fountain while visiting the Temple Mount.

He was immediately assaulted by half a dozen screeching Muslim women, cursing everyone with their “Allahu Achbar”.

The police decided that the the problem was the thirsty Jewish man and told him to get a drink outside the Temple Mount.

Another Jewish man who did succeed in getting a drink was arrested.

The police have decided that Jews may not carry water with them when visiting the Temple Mount, and there are reports that the Muslims are shutting off the fountains during times when Jews are allowed to visit.

Does anyone else see a problem here?

13 Year Old Boy Attacked in Paris Suburb

Sunday, January 25th, 2015

A 13 year old boy was maced in a northeastern suburb of Paris last week, according to a report published online by the National Bureau of Vigilance Against Anti-Semitism (BNVCA).

The incident occurred Tuesday evening (Jan. 20) in Le Pre-Saint-Gervais.

The boy was surrounded by a group of three young thugs who appeared to be of North African descent, according to an eyewitness report.

The boy was visibly Jewish, making him an easy mark because he wore a kipah and tzitzit, an eyewitness testified.

One of the attackers sprayed the boy in the eyes with mace or pepper spray, temporarily blinding him. Then the perpetrator fled with two cohorts.

The victim was rushed to a nearby clinic, suffering intense pain for about 30 minutes after the attack. He received medical care at the clinic for the injury.
