Candid Camera Show Drops Two ‘Israelis’ in Gaza City and Waits for the Lynching to Start [video]

Monday, June 20th, 2016

The makers of a Gaza TV candid camera show in honor of the month of Ramadan were wondering how would rank and file Gazans respond if they realized that there are a couple of Israelis standing and walking in their midst. The concept was funny enough, and the two actors, Chouikh and Abu Zubaydah, depicting the hapless Zionists were equipped with a visual aid, just in case their subjects didn’t get the idea from their mix of broken English and Arabic — they each had an unmistakable, blue and white Israeli flag printed on their shirts. And so, with the hidden camera rolling, the two brave actors showed up in different parts of Gaza City, in front of a variety of astonished local men of all ages.

The funniest reactions were those of irate Gazans who grabbed the provocative Israeli before them and started beating him up, and the canned laughter loved those scenes. Some of the violent responses immediately followed the appearance of the blue Star and David between two parallel lines; others emerged following an exchange with the actors, in a clothing store, on a soccer field, on the street in front of a warehouse. Each time, the actor under attack, occasionally under a mob attack, would start yelling, “It’s a hidden camera” and urged the crew members to save his life.

But there were less violent, and more introspective reactions, too, when the subject would enter a lengthy argument with the two actors over their proposal that he become Israeli, for instance, because Israel is a mighty superpower. Unaware of being on camera, several subjects stood up to declare their fealty to their nation and their faith, expressing their anger at the provocation.

In one exchange, early on, one of the actors tries to speak Hebrew to a subject, who is older and therefore versatile in the language. What develops is a strange dialogue between a faux Israeli who can barely finish a sentence in Hebrew, and a Gazan who speaks fluent Hebrew. The actor asks, “Ma shlomekh,” how are you, except in the wrong declension, using the female form. His subject forgives the mistake, answering, “Barukh Hashem,” as many Israelis would.

Despite the obvious rage many in the video, especially the younger ones, unleash at the mere sight of an Israeli avatars, it is clear that Israel, Israelis and their own identity in relation to the Jewish State are central to the culture and the communal psyche in Gaza. The fact that the video makers manage to treat the tension over the subject matter with humor, albeit lowbrow humor, suggests there may be more under the shallow surface of hatred and denunciations, including a longing for a time when the sound of Hebrew in the streets also represented prosperity, more personal safety and probably more humor.

Attempted Lynch in Hebron

Saturday, November 14th, 2015

A Jewish man accidentally drove into Arab-controlled Hebron, near Junction 200 (near Beit Chagai) on Saturday evening.

An Arab mob pulled the man out of his car and began to beat him.

Another Arab managed to extricate the Jewish man from the lynch mob and got him to the IDF. He’s being treated for light injuries.

Be’er Sheva Eritrean Yelled “Allahu Achbar” During Terror Attack

Saturday, October 24th, 2015

The Eritrean man, Haftom Zarhum, who was shot and killed by a guard during the Be’er Sheva terror attack on October 18, and subsequently attacked by a mob, reportedly yelled out “Allahu Achbar” during the attack, according to the police investigation and witness accounts, Israel Channel 1 reported.

While Islamic terrorists almost always scream “Allahu Achbar” when they are trying to slaughter Jews, Muslims are also known to say it in times of emotional stress.

If accurate, it would explain why the guard mistook the Eritrean man for the terrorist during the attack.

Four people were arrested for beating up Zarhum after he was shot, thinking he was the terrorist.

Forensic Institute: Eritrean Killed by Be’er Sheva Security Guard, Not “Lynch” Mob

Wednesday, October 21st, 2015

(JNi.media) Eritrean citizen Haftom Zarhum, initially listed as the victim of a “lynch” mob following a terrorist attack at the central bus station in Beer Sheva Sunday, was killed by gunfire and not from the violence that was inflicted on him posthumously, according to the findings of an autopsy conducted by the National Forensic Institute at Abu Kabir.

Haftom, 29, worked in a nursery in Ein Habsor. Guy Malachi, CEO of the nursery, described him as a devoted employee with a pleasant demeanor, who was beloved by his colleagues. “We are saddened and pained by Haftom’s shocking death, everyone loved him,” he said.

Despite the forensic evidence, Negev District police investigators plan to locate all videos and security cameras that shot the event and identify individuals who carried out the lynching of the helpless Zahrum.

One of the participants in the violence against Zahrum, a shawarma stall employee, told Channel 2 News: “I myself threw the bench [that knocked him down], I’m sorry about it. Because of the fear you don’t know what you’re doing any more. Unfortunately he was not a terrorist.”

Police also intend to carry out a thorough investigation of the quality of the security service at the central station, primarily to find out how the terrorist, armed with a knife and a gun, managed to enter the station without being discovered by security guards.

Police Negev District Commander Brigadier General Amnon Alkalay ordered investigators to locate the civilians who were in the central station during the attack, and who beat Zarhum, and summon them for questioning. Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon on Tuesday night called for a trial for participants in the lynching.

Today is the 15th Anniversary of the Brutal Lynching of 2 IDF Soldiers in Ramallah

Monday, October 12th, 2015

[WARNING: Graphic Description of PA Terrorist Attack]

On October 12, 2000, two IDF reservists were lynched; brutally beaten and mutilated by a Palestinian Arab mob in Ramallah, Samaria. Yosef Avrahami, aged 38, was the father of three; Vadim Novesche, the other victim, was a 33 year-old newly-wed.

The 2 soldiers accidentally entered Palestinian Authority-controlled Ramallah, and were captured by PA police forces. The PA police took them to a police station where the soldiers were brutally beaten. The PA police then handed over the soldiers to a mob, while the Police watched the scene. One of the Israelis was thrown out the window into the midst of the bloodthirsty mob who continued to beat and dismember the body, all the while cheering.

A “proud” Arab-Muslim “hero”, Aziz Salha, his hands covered in the blood of the Israelis, waves in a bragging manner through the window to the larger crowd anxiously waiting in the public square.

During the lynch, one of the Arab murderers paused in his savage beating to answer a cell phone belonging to one of the dying soldiers. He told the worried voice on the other end of the line, “We are killing your husband.”

Not much has changed in 15 years. May the memories of Yosef Avrahami, and Vadim Novesche be a blessing.

A Tzaddik in Sodom

Friday, September 4th, 2015

Last night, five American Yeshiva students made a wrong turn and entered into the PA-controlled area of Hebron. At which point the savage Arabs of Hebron tried to lynch them, simply because they were Jews.

At least two of the Americans were injured and their car was completely torched.

But one Arab man, Faiz Abu-Hamadya (51) stood apart from his neighbors and saved the Jews, bringing them into his home until Israeli security forces could extricate them.

That man deserves all our praise.

He is nothing less than a Tzaddik (righteous person) in Sodom.

UPDATE:
Faiz Abu-Hamadya gave an interview in Makor Rishon, and these are the details of what happened:
He heard screams and went outside and yelled to the five to run to his house. When they got to his house he gave them water, called the police and sent one of his sons to run to the army post and get the army.
He speaks a few words in Hebrew, enough to calm them down. He works with Jews in Be’er Sheva.
When asked if he wasn’t afraid the mob would attack his house, he said he did the humanitarian thing, and what was done to the five was evil. He added, we have to live together, so that everyone has work and that everyone can live as they should.

Israeli Arab Lynch Suspect Indicted, More Arrests Expected

Friday, December 5th, 2014

An Arab resident of the “Triangle” region was indicted Thursday in Lod District Court on suspicion of helping a mob attempt to lynch a Jewish man during a riot.

That riot and other Arab disturbances began November 9 after Kafr Kanna resident Kheir a-Din Hamdan was killed by police the night before after he tried to attack officers in a van.

On Thursday, 21-year-old Mohamed Haj Yehiyeh, was charged with aggravated assault, vandalism and mayhem. He is accused of having lit a package of fireworks and throwing them into a car with someone still inside, and having lit a second package of fireworks and throwing it at a police cruiser. He was arrested a month ago by the Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) and the Central District Police.

Haj-Yehiyeh was accused of leading a mob who stopped 47-year-old Moshe German as he was traveling along Highway 444 northbound from Kochav Yair, on the road in Taibe. In order to avoid burning his tires, the driver tried to turn his car around in the street, but was surrounded by the rioters who started speaking Arabic.

When it became clear he could not understand them, they began yelling, “Jew! Jew! Jew!” and hurled rocks at him and the vehicle, smashed both the front and rear windshields.

The court papers say Haj-Yehiyeh lit a package of fireworks and tossed them into the car while German was still trapped inside, igniting the vehicle as well. The targeted driver was saved by Majdi Baloum, a local Taibe man who fought his way through the mob to rescue him, placing German in his car with his own children and driving to a nearby police station – endangering his own family and saving the motorist’s life.

German’s car, meanwhile, became engulfed in flames, after the gasoline in the vehicle was ignited, incinerating it completely.

During the probe investigators discovered a video clip showing Haj-Yehiyeh speaking into the camera, calling for an intifada and making other nationalist statements.

That video was released by Central District Police on Thursday.

“People of the Triangle, today it was Kafr Kanna, tomorrow in Taibe, and Umm al Fahm,” Haj-Yehiyeh proclaimed.

“Intifada, intifada! Anyone who can, carry out an intifada in their own way. God willing, the blood of Kheir of a-Din Hamdan won’t be spilled in vain.

“God is greater than the Zionists! Allahhu Akbar! Allahu Akbar!”

Haj-Yehiyeh was arraigned in Lod District Court and an indictment was issued Thursday in the wake of a confession, police said.

Further arrests are expected in the case, police said.
