Terror Victim Malachi Moshe Rosenfeld Laid to Rest

Wednesday, July 1st, 2015

Malachi Moshe Rosenfeld, 26, was buried in Kochav HaShachar in Samaria early Wednesday afternoon after he succumbed last night to bullet wounds from Palestinian Authority terrorists.

Bayit Yehudi (Jewish Home) chairman and Minister of Education Naftali Bennett was among hundreds of people at the funeral.

He called Rosenfeld “a symbol of the State of Israel, which salutes you.” Bennett quoted Psalms 18:37 to say, ” I have pursued my enemies and overtaken them, never turning back until they were consumed.”

Kochav HaShachar Rabbi Ohad Krakover called on the government to respond to the terrorist attack be strengthening a Jewish presence in Judea and Samaria. The murder of Rosenfeld was the third loss in the family. His older brother Naftali, an Air Force pilot, died in 2002 in an accident, and his uncle was killed while he was in the army in 1978.

Malachi’s father Eliezer is widely known as a clarinet player who performs at weddings.
He cried at the funeral, “What did we do wrong?

Victim of Palestinian Authority Shooting Attack Dies

Tuesday, June 30th, 2015

 

Malachi Moshe Rosenfeld died late Tuesday afternoon from gunshot wounds inflicted by two Palestinian Authority terrorists Monday night.

There others were wounded in the attack that has not been condemned by Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas.

The IDF believes that the murder, unlike several “lone wolf” attacks, was carried out by a terrorist cell that is responsible for previous attempts to kill Jews.

Rosenfeld and his friends were returning from a basketball game in a vehicle when the terrorist opened fire in a “drive-by” attack near the community of Shiloh. He was evacuated by helicopter, but doctors were unable to save his life.

The attackers pumped more than a dozen bullets into the car and continued firing until the driver turned off the road towards the community of Migdalim and the passengers called for help.

The IDF still is looking for the terrorists, who arable to travel freely on the highway with no checkpoints except at the security fence, part of “good will measures” instituted by former Defense Minister Ehud Barak and continued in the Netanyahu administration to bolster Abbas’ position.

Palestinian Authority Terrorist Fires on Jewish Ambulance in Samaria

Saturday, June 27th, 2015

A Palestinian Authority terrorist fired on a Magen David Adom ambulance near Beit El in Samaria Saturday night.

The ambulance sustained damage, but no one was injured.

The IDF is searching for the terrorist.

Last week, Druze in the Golan Heights ambushed an IDF ambulance that was carrying victims that were wounded in the civil war in Syria.

Attacking an ambulance is a war crime, but the United Nations is unlikely to pay any attention since it was not an Israeli Jew who attacked the vehicle.

Abbas Silent on Palestinian Authority Terrorist’s Murder of Soldier

Saturday, June 20th, 2015

Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas has been dead silent on the Arab terrorist’s murder of soldier-hiker Daniel Gonen and the wounding of his friend Friday afternoon.

The United States express its condolences, while the United Nations envoy to the Middle East, Nickolay Mladenov simply condemned the murder and stated:

On this second day of Ramadan and at the start of the Shabbat, I call on all sides to exercise the utmost restraint, to maintain calm and promptly bring the perpetrators to justice.

When State Dept. spokesman John Kirby was asked about the murder at the daily press briefing on Friday, he answered:

We have scant information. First of all, our condolences go out to the family of what we understand to be at least one of those individuals who was killed in this deadly shooting. Certainly, our thoughts and prayers go out to them. And the second thing I’d say is, as always, we condemn any violence against civilians there, completely unacceptable.

And on the Palestinian Authority side?

No regrets. No condolences. No renouncement of terror.

Mahmoud Abbas did not condemn the murder nor did he comment on it, and the Palestinian Authority’s official WAFA website referred to it only in a posting under the headline:

Newspaper Review: Fatal Shooting of Israeli near West Bank Settlement, Quarter Million Worshippers Praying in Al-Aqsa Mosque as Focus of Dailies

Abbas has a handy excuse. He can always say. “They did it.”

Who is ‘they?” Hamas, of course.

The terrorist organization took responsibility for the attack, as WAFA noted. Hamas stated: “One of the fighters ambushed a settler vehicle and shot at them from point-blank range after having observed the area continuously.”

Hamas then explained that the attack was a continuation of “a series of operations…in retaliation to occupation crimes” against “Palestinian martyrs who have recently been killed by Israeli forces including Izz Addin Abu Gharra from Jenin and Abdullah Ghanayim Gneimat from Kafr Malik near Ramallah.”

The statement identified the “Marwan Qawasmeh and Amir Abu Eisha Brigade” as the affiliated group directly behind Friday’s shooting, adding that “the operation was carried out days before the first anniversary of the martyrs Marwan Qawasmeh and Amir Abu Eisha,” who kidnapped and murdered three Israeli yeshiva students last June and were killed in a shoot-out with the IDF.

WAFA, Abbas’ official mouthpiece, whitewashed the terrorist attack and stated:

Palestinian factions and groups released statements following Friday’s attack deeming the incident as a natural response to ongoing Israeli occupation.

Israel’s Latest ‘War Crime’ and Human Rights Violation: Uprooting Trees

Friday, June 19th, 2015

Israel uprooted approximately 1,000 almond and olive trees that were planted illegally in a land grab on the western edge of Gush Etzion on Thursday, an action that Arabs are calling a “war crime” and even a human rights violation.”

The office of the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT) stated:

[We] carried out the eviction of an illegal invasion of around 1,000 olive trees planted illegally without permits on state land in Wadi Fukin.

The area is located between the security fence and the Hareidi city of Beitar Illit, west of Efrat.

The Palestinian Authority’s official WAFA website claimed that the land is owned by Arabs.

The London Independent reported:

Palestinians have accused Israel of a war crime after military tractors destroyed around a thousand olive and almond trees belonging to local farmers on the grounds that they were illegally planted on state land….. Three years ago, Israeli authorities posted signs saying that the land belongs to the state, farmers said.

Wasel Abu Yusuf, a member of the executive committee of the Palestine Liberation Organization, told the newspaper: This is occupied territory and international humanitarian law and the Geneva Convention apply. This is the land of the Palestinian state and any colonialist settler building or expropriation of land or cutting trees is a war crime against the Palestinian people.

If they are going to claim it is a “war came,” why not go even farther and charge Israel with violating human rights?

That may sound absurd, but read what an unidentified journalist, whom we can assume to be Al Quds correspondent Sayid Erikat, told the State Dept. at yesterday’s daily briefing:

Yesterday the Israelis pulled out something like 1,800 trees in the West Bank; they uprooted trees and so on. I mean, we talked about the commission of inquiry and human rights abuses and so on. Is that something that you would like to see the Israelis stop doing?

State Dept. spokesman John Kirby answered, “I haven’t seen the report on the trees being uprooted. You’re going to have to let me go back and look at that. I just don’t have anything on that.

What is amazing is that there was no laughter from Kirby or fellow journalists.

Shomron Jews Warn ‘West Bank Label’ Could Cause Arab Unemployment

Wednesday, June 17th, 2015

The Shomron Settlers Committee has warned the far-left Meretz party that support for labeling settlers’ product as “Made in West Bank” could lead to mass unemployment among Palestinian Authority Arabs.

The letter, which also was sent to TheJewishPress.com, urged Meretz leader Zehava Gal-On to drop her support for her proposal to legislate the “West Bank” label if she does not want to see Jewish employers fire Arabs.

Her proposal is a copy of the Boycott Israel campaign in the European Union.

Shomron Settlers Committee official Sagi Kaisler wrote:

“Your actions could cause chaos in the economy. It is not reasonable that radical leftists always harm settlers’ ability to make a living. This letter serves as a red light to anyone who tries to harm settlements and Israeli citizens.

Fifteen businessmen signed the letter anonymously in order not to endanger sales to foreign buyers.

The letter made little positive impressing on Gal-On, called it an “act of terrorism,” “blackmail” and an effort turn Arab workers into “hostages.”

So who is calling the kettle black?

When Meretz calls for boycotting settlers, that is not an act of terrorism, by her definition?

And does she also want to boycott all Jewish-owned businesses in Judea and Samaria, such as Rami Levi supermarkets. which where thousands of Arabs shop and which provides work for hundreds of Arabs?

Hit-and-Run Palestinian Authority Terrorist Arrested

Tuesday, June 16th, 2015

Cleared for release: The IDF, Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) and Israeli Police arrested Palestinian Authority Mohammed Yosuf Arfaya. for running over pedestrians at the Alon Shvut junction last month.

Three people were injured, and Arfaya escaped. He later was caught and initially claimed it was accident. Under questioning, he admitted to intentionally targeting Israeli civilians.

Arfaya also confessed to have previously attempted executing several terror attacks, all of them unsuccessful. An indictment will be submitted to the military court in Judea and Samaria charging him with the terrorist attack at Alon Shvut.

The terror attack that Arfaya executed is an example of “lone wolf” attacks. There have been many similar attacks over recent months, in which a singular attacker was involved and claimed credit.

In the upcoming days, an indictment will be submitted to the military court in Judea and Samaria incriminating Arfaya for the terror attack.
