Foiled Stabbing, Dead Terrorist at Eliyahu Checkpoint in Samaria

Monday, November 9th, 2015

Two Arab terrorists tried to stab people at the Eliyahu Checkpoint in Samaria (Shomron) on Route 55, just before 7 AM on Monday morning.

This is the checkpoint that links the Kfar Sava area with Jewish communities in the Shomron region, and near Alfei Menashe, the site of a terror attack barely 24 hours earlier.

One female terrorist was shot and killed. According to the Ministry of Defense, a suicide note with a ‘goodbye’ to her family was found on her body. The attacker was clearly determined to die in her attempt, brandishing a knife while running towards guards despite being ordered several times to drop the weapon and halt. She continued moving towards the guards, even after she was shot, further increasing concerns that she might have been carrying explosives upon her person as well.

The second attacker escaped and a manhunt is on for the terrorist.

No one else was injured in the attack.

The Eliyahu checkpoint is manned by a private security firm for the Ministry of Defense, and not by IDF personnel.

Alfei Menashe, is located close to an Arab village in which an Israeli was stabbed yesterday in a similar attack by two Arab terrorists. That victim was miraculously able to drive himself to a nearby IDF checkpoint where he received first aid before being evacuated to a nearby medical center.

A Border Guard Police officer was wounded and an Arab attacker shot on Thursday morning in a terror attack near the Route 60 junction connecting Kiryat Arba with the ancient city of Hebron.

The 23-year-old Arab terrorist knifed the officer in the head and upper body, according to Magen David Adom.

The officer immediately pushed his attacker away despite his condition, even as the terrorist continued to try to stab him over and over again, according to police.

A nearby Border Guard Police officer shot the terrorist, who was mortally wounded and died shortly after.

The victim remained conscious while receiving emergency medical treatment from an IDF medic at the scene before being evacuated to a Jerusalem medical center.

The Gaza-based Hamas terror organization has secured a stronghold in Hebron within the past several years.

Islamist Stabs Jew, Punches Rabbi in Marseille, France

Sunday, October 25th, 2015

Rabbi Yehuda Malul of the Menuchat Shalom synagogue in Marseilles, France, was attacked this past weekend with another congregant while on their way to morning prayers.

The synagogue is located in the center of the southern French city, where there are many hareidi-religious Jews, synagogues and yeshivot.

According to a report posted on the Hebrew-language website Bhadarei Haredim, the attacker was a “young man of Arab appearance.”

The rabbi, who spoke with a writer at the website, said the attacker yelled, “Yahud, Allahu Akbar!” The attacker punched the rabbi with his fists, and he shouted again, “Itbah al-Yahud!” as the rabbi fell to the ground.

When the rabbi’s companion went to the rabbi’s side to try to protect him, the attacker pulled out a knife and stabbed the man in the abdomen.

The rabbi told the site that he was “not hurt” and continued on to the synagogue. However, his companion was rushed to the hospital where doctors “said it was a real miracle, and that the knife was blocked due to the heavy coat he was wearing. If not for the coat, the injury could have been critical.”

The attacker had been released only a few days earlier from prison, according to the rabbi, who said the incident was “frightening” when taken in context of the normal Marseilles lifestyle.

“Here in Marseilles, it’s not like Paris,” he said, “ we have had no anti-Semitic incidents; that this has happened at a time of stabbings in Israel is frightening, especially since after the stabbing the stabber continued to curse the Jews after being arrested by police.”

On Sunday, the Jewish community in Marseilles is set to hold a solidarity rally for Israel, walking from the city center to the Israeli consulate.

Counter Terror: Supermarket Chains Ban Sale of Knives

Thursday, October 15th, 2015

The large low-priced Rami Levy supermarket chain and Victory supermarkets have taken knives off the shelves to prevent a customer-terrorist from carrying out a stabbing attack on the spot.

Anyone who wants to buy a kitchen knife at Rami Levy stores can do so by going to the customer’s service desk, but the new policy leaves knives and cleavers in the hands of workers, most of them Arabs, at the meat counter.

Rami Levy said:

There’s no point checking customers at the entrance, if they can buy a knife inside.

I’m afraid of letting in a customer who’d do something. Why should I give him the weapon? It’s not smart to put a guard on the door to check people and then give him a knife inside the store.

Arabs, including those from the Palestinian Authority who work at the company’s stores in Judea and Samaria, account for approximately two-thirds of the unskilled labor force in the chain’s supermarket.

Meat cleavers will remind in the hands of workers, most of them Arabs behind the meat counter, but Levy said his employees undergo a strict security check before being hired. He is more worried about the “lone wolf” customer who could pick up a knife off a shelf and start stabbing anyone within reach.

One customer told Globes that fewer customers are shopping at the Rami Levy market where he works “because they are afraid to come to us.”

Levy said that Jerusalem has become a “ghost town” but that sales at his stores have not been affected by the recent wave of terror.

Victory CEO Eyal Ravid told Globes:

Yesterday afternoon I took the knives down to the warehouse just to be certain that God forbid somebody won’t come and buy and use it.
