Terrorists Stab Man in Nahariya, Try to Knife Soldiers in Jordan Valley [video]

Saturday, November 28th, 2015

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.

An Israeli army spokesperson said a “suspect approached a soldier with a knife in hand.”

Below is a video of the stabbing attack in Nahariya as it happened.

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.

Arab Teen Turns from Innocent Salesman to Terrorist at Checkpoint [video]

Saturday, October 24th, 2015

Security guards at a checkpoint at in the northern Jordan Valley shot and killed a 16-year-old terrorist Saturday morning after he stopped selling snacks and charged at them with a knife.

The guards initially had ignored the teenager, who seemed to be just an innocent youngster trying to eke out a few shekels by hawking chocolate-covered marshmallows (Krembo) to motorists waiting in line at the checkpoint several miles south of Beit Shean in the Jordan Valley, east of Jenin.

As seen in the video below, the boy suddenly decided to turn himself into a terrorist and ran at the guards, who sprung into action. They shot and killed the “salesman.”

The Palestinian Authority’s version of the incident is that the boy “attempted to cross the checkpoint through one of the metal gates” even though the video, which WAFA did not post, clearly shows him rushing at the guards.

Left-Wing Media call 24 Terrorist Attacks a ‘Quiet Yom Kippur’

Wednesday, September 23rd, 2015

It apparently was a “quiet” Yom Kippur for Israel’s establishment media because no Jews were seriously injured.

That is the only way to explain reports that Yom Kippur was “relatively quiet,” as termed by Reshet Bet (Voice of Israel) radio, despite at least 24 rock-throwing and firebomb attacks on soldiers and Jewish civilians.

After the holiday ended, the IDF reported that combat soldiers manning a post in the Jordan Valley foiled an attempted attack by a Palestinian Authority terrorist who was carrying an explosive device.

The soldiers arrested him when he approached their guard position, and no one was injured

During the day, Jerusalem Arabs missed their target in a firebombing attack on a Jewish home in the mixed Jewish-Arab Abu Tur neighborhood of Jerusalem.

More than 200 Palestinian Authority terrorists rioted near Hebron and threw rocks at police, and a firebomb was hurled at a Jewish home in Hebron.

Rock-throwing attacks also were reported in Har Homa, a large Jewish neighborhood at the southern edge of Jerusalem.

No injuries or serious property damage was reported, so for the media that are not concerned if Jews are targets of terrorists but not wounded or killed, it was a quiet day.

UN, EU Argue Over Demolitions of Illegal Arab Structures

Thursday, August 20th, 2015

The issue of illegal construction in and around Jerusalem and the Jordan Valley is again making headlines, this time using Palestinian Arabs and Bedouin as the proxies.

The United Nations and European Union have both issued statements of concern over Israel’s demolition of illegally built structures belonging to Palestinian Arabs in the Jordan Valley and around Ma’ale Adumim.

More than a 100 people were allegedly displaced by the demolitions of the structures, none of which were built on private Palestinian Authority land.

According to the leftist NGO B’Tselem, the 17 temporary structures included 14 residential huts and 3 livestock barns. The Civil Administration said, however, it had demolished only eight – all of which were built on state land, without government approval. Nor had any of the people who built the structures even attempted to obtain construction permits.

B’Tselem claims that since August 5, the Civil Administration has demolished 57 illegal Palestinian Arab structures in the Jordan Valley and around Ma’ale Adumim. There were 167 people living in 31 of the structures – including 101 children – and the rest were used for sheltering livestock.

The Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee’s subcommittee on Judea and Samaria has urged the IDF Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT) Maj.-Gen. Yoav Mordechai to increase action against illegal Palestinian construction in the Jordan Valley and around Ma’ale Adumim.

The lawmakers warned such activity is intended to block expansion of Jewish settlement.

In the summer months Bedouin clans are often camped out and pasturing their flocks in the valleys and hills around Jerusalem and surrounds. To do so involves a move of up to several hundred head of sheep and goats.

These are usually herded by the older women of the clan who are assisted by their daughters and their children. The men – most of whom work at various occupations – come to visit or stay for short periods of time and then leave to return to their employment.

In past years, and in some cases up to today, the clans used several huge black goats-hair tents in which to shelter from the burning sun. Due to the changes in weather and other environmental conditions, as well as the socioeconomic conditions in Israel, many clans have now switched to using other materials.

The problem with the current rash of construction around Ma’ale Adumim and in the Jordan Valley has to do with the nature of the structures being built. These are not necessarily the type of temporary structures intended to be removed and transported with a Bedouin family upon completion of the pasturing cycle.

They are intended to be removed and replaced with more permanent Arab housing instead.

It is this type of mushrooming presence on the landscape that has the lawmakers so worried and one the international community appears to be racing to encourage.

While the United Nations and European Union have been so meticulous in their monitoring of Israel’s “unjust” enforcement of its law against illegal construction, the two entities often call on Israel to demolish Jewish structures, even when they are built within legal municipal lines.

On Tuesday, GOP presidential candidate Mike Huckabee waded right into the middle of the controversy, stating bluntly that the “land for peace” formula has simply “not worked for Israel.” He encouraged visitors to the Jewish State to visit “all of Israel,” saying “that includes Judea and Samaria.”
