Jewish Man Escapes Taibe Lynch, Car Torched [video]

Monday, November 10th, 2014

A Jewish man, identified as Moshe, visiting friends in the Israeli-Arab town of Taibe escaped with his life, but not his car.

Around twenty masked Arab men from the town surrounded his car and attacked him as he was leaving.

One decent Taibe Arab managed to extricate the Jewish man from the “Allahu Achbar” yelling lynch mob before it was too late, and drove Moshe away in his car.

Without a human target to kill, the rabid Islamic mob torched the man’s car instead.

MDA ambulances were also damaged by Taibe Arabs.

As a result of this pogrom, police prohibited all Jewish traffic on Road 444, north of Kochav Yair (the town where Ehud Barak used to live).

MK Dr. Ahmed Tibi lives in Taibe.

Video from the entrance to Taibe:

In other locations, including Jerusalem, the Galilee, as well as Judea and the Shomron, Arabs attacked Jewish drivers with stones and firebombs.

A woman travelling near Maaleh Shomron with her 5 children came under attack by firebomb and stone throwing Arabs on Sunday. Everyone is safe, but the car suffered damage.

In Jerusalem, a man was lightly injured when Arab stone throwers hit him with stones while he was driving near Neve Yaakov. An ambulance took him to the hospital.

4 Women Survive Near Lynch on Mount of Olives

Thursday, October 2nd, 2014

A woman and three teenage girls miraculously escaped an Arab lynch mob on Thursday afternoon in the Jerusalem A-Tur neighborhood on the Mount of Olives.

The driver of the car, a teacher, and the three teenage girls were returning from school to the Maaleh HaZeitim neighborhood at around 1:30pm, when they detoured through the A-Tur neighborhood due to congestion near Wadi Joz. The detour is a standard shortcut to avoid the Wadi Joz traffic.

Once inside the neighborhood, the driver noticed a crowd on the road. She had to stop and the car was then hit by a rock.

The rest of the Arabs then noticed them, and within seconds, the car was surround by Arabs, and the way behind them purposely blocked by another car.

The Arabs began pelting the car with large rocks from all directions. The car’s windows and the car were smashed.

The girls in the back seat covered themselves with their school knapsacks to prevent themselves from getting hit by the rocks and shattering glass.

One girl in the back seat was injured by a rock to the back.

Not yet panicking, the driver kept trying to call the police and the local security services to help them escape.

After being hit by rocks for a few minutes, the driver finally saw an opening and zoomed out of the neighborhood.

Once outside, they flagged down a police car, at which point the policeman called for an ambulance and transported two of the injured and scared girls to Shaarei Tzedek Hospital.

Police cars were then seen entering the A-Tur neighborhood.

Update: The girls have been released from the hospital.

Blame Is the Name of the Game

Thursday, January 30th, 2014

Arrest the gas technician! Condemn the gas company!

Arrest the exterminator! The emergency health clinic is at fault. Let’s censure the parents – maybe you and I are also to blame?

Every time a tragedy slaps us in the face, we immediately pursue a person who will bear the blame. Guilty until proven innocent.

Why do we seek out whom to blame?

First, it serves as an immediate release for our anger and frustration at the terrible disaster that has shaken our complacency. It is a way to cope. Our gut reaction is to lash out. The crowd cries out, “Lynch!”

Charging someone with the crime also makes us feel that we have done something positive to rectify the disaster. We are empowered. We are once more in control.

Furthermore, a world in which such calamities take place is chaotic; the normal, everyday laws of our lives have been broken. We cannot comprehend how such catastrophes happen to such nice people—people just like you and me. Where is Justice? But if we find a culprit for the crime, we feel that we have restored some semblance of law and order to our world.

Finally—and most ominously—settling the blame on one person or organization serves to distance us from its enormity, as well as the responsibility for the tragedy from ourselves. After all, no matter how much we commiserate and cry with the people to whom this tragedy belongs, our own lives continue more or less as usual, while their lives have been fatally altered. As far as blame is concerned, we are certainly above reproach; the culprit has been caught and it is not I!

But hasn’t every driver zipped past a stop sign, or driven obliviously through a red light at least once in his career? Do you know the unique pedestrian who has never forgotten to look before he crossed the street, or crossed against the light? Is there a mother who glued her eyes to her baby and never left him unattended in his high chair for even a minute when the doorbell rang? Thank God, because the event didn’t end in tragedy it was gratefully forgotten. But it could have ended differently.

I don’t have answers. Only questions. But Shimon and Michal Gross have advised us how to proceed. They ask that we pray for the complete and speedy recovery of their sons, Chaim Michoel Shlomo ben Michal and Refoel Yitzchok Isaac ben Michal. They ask that we perform some act of Kiddush Hashem. They also ask not to speak against the exterminator who is a God fearing man, and to understand that the tragedy is a decree from Heaven.

On a personal note, I cringe at the thought of these strong chemicals. I don’t even take a flu shot! I never liked calling the exterminator into my home. I really don’t mind ants too much, I would tell my children, they are cute and industrious, and they would always go away after sprinkling black pepper, only to pay a return visit the next year. But when the kids refused to enter the bathroom at night, I had to get rid of the bugs. I found a licensed, reliable, experienced, intelligent exterminator—with a degree in geology! I recommended him highly to my married children and friends.

When he heard of the poisoning last week, he rushed to the hospital to explain to the doctors what chemicals were used. The police handcuffed him in the hospital ward and took him to jail. He was released from jail to house arrest. And when he is released, I will still recommend him.

New York Family Rescued From Arab Lynch Mob in Jerusalem

Thursday, September 26th, 2013

On Wednesday, the Arfons family, visiting Israel from New York, were rescued from an Arab mob who tried to lynch them – in Jerusalem.

The family was on their way to visit the grave of their grandfather, located on the Mount of Olives. The Mount of Olives is the oldest Jewish cemetery in the world, going back an estimated 3000 years, and holds approximately 150,000 graves.

According to the father, Yoel, when they reached the area near Augusta Victoria, two Arab-owned cars suddenly blocked them, one in the front, and one from behind.

The Arabs in the the cars then got out and began stoning the car, smashing it, and attempting to physically pull the family out of the vehicle.

One of the passengers, a cousin (40), suffered a hand broken and internal injuries as he protected two children who were in the car, ages 14 and 17. The cousin was taken to Hadassah Hospital on Mount Scopus for treatment. The rest of the family suffered injuries and bruises, but were treated on site.

The police spokesperson said they are searching for the attackers.

Police Investigating Attempted Jewish Lynch Victims

Saturday, June 22nd, 2013

Last we reported on the attempted lynching of 3 Jews, by an Arab mob near A-Tor. The Jews were afraid to shoot, as they didn’t want to risk getting arrested by the police for defending themselves.

The story has now gotten even more absurd.

Aryeh King reports on his Facebook page that police have now opened an investigation against the 3 Jews.

Why?

Because they left their car in the middle of the road and were blocking traffic!
