Jerusalem Arabs Clash with Police in Old City after Jew Stabbed

Sunday, June 21st, 2015

A terrorist stabbed one person near Damascus Gate in the Old City of Jerusalem Saturday night, and other terrorists threw a firebomb at a bus near Nevi Yaakov in northern Jerusalem and a pipe bomb at Rachel’s Tomb.

Police clashed with rioters after the stabbing, according to Israel News Feed. Arabs hurled rocks at cars, wounding at least one person, and police carried out one arrest as of midnight Saturday.

The condition of the stabbing victim is not known, but he is believed not to have suffered serous wounds.

There are no known injuries in the firebombing of the bus and from the pipe bomb that was thrown towards Jews visting Rachel’s Tomb (Kever Rachel) near Bethlehem.

In Judea and Samaria, Palestinian Authority terrorists hurled rocks at passing Jewish motorists near Dolev and in the same region where one or more terrorists murdered Daniel Gonen and wounded a companion while they were hiking. Gonen was buried in his home city of Lod, near Ben Gurion Airport, Saturday night.

The terrorist fled on foot but is believed to have been whisked away from the area in a car, leading police and the IDF to believe he did not act alone.

They also estimate that the attack was planned and was not a spur of the minute attack.

Palestinian Authority terrorists usually are more motivated during the Muslim month of Ramadan, which began Thursday. They have an added incentive because this month is the anniversary of the kidnap-murders of three yeshiva youth, whose attackers were located and killed in a shoot-out with the IDF last September.

Rachel’s Tomb – After

Tuesday, November 4th, 2014

Yesterday we showed you what Rachel’s Tomb used to look like.

Unfortunately, the Oslo Accords and “Peace” changed all that.

Nowadays Rachel’s Tomb is Fortress Rachel, in order to protect Jewish visitors from Arab terrorists.

The original building is not gone. The fortress was built over and around it.

The original Rachel's Tomb, now inside Fortress Rachel.

Bomb Wounds One at Rachel’s Tomb

Tuesday, January 7th, 2014

At just after 11:00 pm on Monday evening, a pipe-bomb was again thrown into the Rachel’s Tomb compound at the edge of Bethlehem, near Jerusalem.

This pipe-bomb, thrown over the security wall, landed in the upper parking lot, exploded, and wounded a 25 year old man.

The injured man was treated and then evacuated by a medical crew.

Firemen were called to the site to make sure a fire didn’t break out from the explosion.

IDF forces searched for the terrorists.

Rachel’s Tomb (Kever Rachel) is one of the most ancient and important Jewish sites in Israel, and was not handed over to the Palestinian Authority during the Oslo Accords.

To protect the area from repeated attacks by Palestinian Authority terrorists, a large wall was built up around the tomb, parking lot, and road leading to the site.

Palestinian Authority Arabs attacks Israeli soldiers and civilians Monday night with two Molotov cocktail attacks on an IDF post neat Bethlehem and Rachel’s Tomb (Kever Rachel), injuring one person.

Kerry now can be assured that some Arabs on the same page with him.
