Israel Demolishes Home of Arab Terrorist in Samaria

Monday, January 11th, 2016

The IDF and Civil Administration together demolished the home of an Arab terrorist who attacked Israeli soldiers last weekend.

The demolition took place Sunday night.

The terrorist was one of a team of two who tried to stab IDF soldiers on Saturday morning at the Beka’ot checkpoint. The site is located between the Jordan Valley and Samaria, on the eastern outskirts of Shechem.

Both terrorists were asked to exit their vehicle after being stopped at the checkpoint, also known in Arabic as the Al-Hamra checkpoint.

An IDF spokesperson said the two assailants attempted to stab Israeli soldiers at the security crossing, who opened fire in response to the attack, according to the Bethlehem-based Ma’an news agency.

The two attackers received medical treatment on site but were pronounced dead, the IDF spokesperson said. No Israelis were injured.

Both victims were residents of villages located in Palestinian Authority-controlled areas of Samaria.

Israel’s Four Lone Supporters in Pro-Palestinian Authority Resolution

Wednesday, December 23rd, 2015

Only four United Nations members, besides Israel, voted against a U.N. anti-Israel resolution Tuesday that demand Palestinian Authority sovereignty over Israel’s natural resources in Judea and Samaria, including the Jordan Valley.

Areas or Jerusalem claimed by the Palestinian Authority also were included in the non-binding resolution.

The vote was 164-5, with 10 abstentions.

Canada, the United States, the Marshall Islands and the Federated States of Micronesia voted with Israel.

The draft resolution carried the wordy title ” Permanent sovereignty of the Palestinian people in the Occupied Palestinian Territory, including East Jerusalem, and of the Arab population in the occupied Syrian Golan over their natural resources.”

The measure demands that Israel cease alleged “exploitation, damage, cause of loss or depletion and endangerment” of the natural resources in the “occupied” territories.

Supposed destruction includes what the Palestinian Authority calls “diplomatic terrorism,” meaning the alleged “extensive destruction” of Arab land utility infrastructure, especially during the war against Hamas missile attacks on half of Israel in the summer  of 2014.

Israel has tried to work with the Palestinian Authority on several sewerage system projects but has been turned down.

A 16-year-old Arab terrorist stabbed a Border Police officer Friday night in Nahariya, located n the Mediterranean Coast n northwest Israel, and a Palestinian Authority woman tried to knife soldiers at a checkpoint in Samaria Saturday morning.

No shots were fired at the terrorists, both of whom were arrested.

The Arab who stabbed the police officer, who suffered moderate wounds, escaped and later was arrested. He claimed he stabbed the victim in self-defense during an argument between them.

The stabbing attempt by the Palestinian Authority female terrorist at a crossing near Shechem was foiled by soldiers.

Businessmen Want Rabbinic Boycott of Palestinian Authority Food Items

Wednesday, November 25th, 2015

Food industry executives are calling for a boycott of Palestinian Authority items, some of which carry a stamp of approval as kosher by respected rabbis.

One food manufacturer told Globes Business newspaper:

They stab us. The world boycotts us, and we act like idiots and help them [Arabs] make a living.

One of the products on the potential boycott list is the Medjool date, a high-quality and relatively expensive date.

The Medjool dates in packages stamped as “Made in Palestine” carry a kosher certificate of high standing under the approval of “Rabbi Efrati.”

The Gatestone Institute reported this week that Palestinian Authority farmers in the Jordan Valley are able to grow Medjool dates thanks to a Jewish resident in the area whom they told that salty soil was not suitable for growing the fruit.

The farmer, Inon Rosenblum, used techniques to improve the soil so that it produces dates, grapes and herbs for export. His employees are Palestinian Authority Arabs, and he gave date palm seedlings to his Arab neighbors so they could grow them

Jews and Arabs living in the Jordan Valley account for approximately 40% of Medjool dates around the world.

600 Million Israel Spiders Attack Enemies of S. American Crops

Tuesday, November 24th, 2015

 

Israel is on the attack, but this time it is with kibbutz spiders grown as a natural pesticide to fight enemies of crops in Colombia, Globes reported.

The carnivorous spiders are grown in the Bio-Bee laboratories at Sde Eliyahu, a national religious kibbutz located in the Jordan Valley, approximately five miles south of Beit Shean and near the border with Jordan.

It has grown spiders that will be flown to Colombia and multiply to 600 million to eat up spiders half their size. They are kept refrigerated and then reproduce after being released in warm air at their destination.

The kibbutz spiders chase after the smaller enemy, hunt it down and then suck it dry.

Bio-Bee is looking forward to marketing the natural pesticide to replace chemicals.

Sde Eliyahu says the carnivorous spiders are expensive to grow. It takes only a week from incubation to reach the adult stage, but they fetch a price of tens of thousands of dollars and ounce.

25 Arab Fugitives Arrested in Joint Security Operation

Monday, November 23rd, 2015

IDF soldiers captured 25 Arab fugitives late Sunday night in a joint operation with Border Guard Police and Shai District Police.

The operation, which spanned Judea, Samaria and the Jordan Valley, hauled in 15 suspects accused of involvement in terrorist activity and violence against civilians and security forces.

Among the fugitives were five terrorists from the Judean Arab village of Beit Omar, a hotbed of terror activity. Israeli vehicles are damaged almost daily as they pass by this area on Highway 60, due to attacks by Arab terrorists hurling firebombs and rocks.

Also among those detained were several members of terrorist organizations, including a number from Gaza’s ruling Hamas terror group.

All of the suspects were transferred to security personnel for interrogation.
