Security Forces Thwart Major Arms Smuggling Attempt from Jordan

Wednesday, July 20th, 2016

By Michael Zeff/TPS

Jordan Valley (TPS) – The Israel Police and IDF Spokesperson announced on Wednesday that security forces thwarted a large arms smuggling attempt last night and apprehended two Palestinian Authority smugglers.

“Not only did the successful operation prevent a large quantity of weapons from reaching the hands of criminal and terrorists, it also permanently severed that smuggling route and prevented any future attempts,” stated a Northern District Police spokesperson.

The intelligence about the smuggling operation was acquired after an undercover investigation was conducted by the Israel Police and the Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency).

According to the police, the two Arab suspects, residents of Jericho, operated an arms smuggling route that ran from Jordan to Judea and Samaria through the Jordan Valley. They worked as security guards at a plantation south of the Israeli city of Beit She’an and used the proximity of the plantations to the Israel-Jordan border fence to operate the smuggling route.

“An IDF light-infantry brigade with the help of the Shin Bet and the Israel Police seized 20 nine- millimeter handguns, five M-16 assault rifles, various parts for automatic weapons, and optical equipment,” stated an IDF spokesperson.

According to the police spokesperson, the two suspects also attempted to smuggle ammunition, laser and telescopic sights for rifles, and various parts used by illegal weapons manufacturers in Judea and Samaria to make Carl Gustav sub-machine guns.

Israeli Security Captures Shechem Cell of Arms Manufacturers and Dealers that Includes PA Officers

Monday, July 11th, 2016

A collaborative effort of the Shabak, IDF special forces unit Duvdevan and Israel Samaria police on Sunday night captured a cell of manufacturers and dealers of improvised weapons in Oreef Village near Shechem. The operation netted various types of improvised weapons, and four Lathes that were used to make the weapons.

The home-made weapons made in the Oreef facility were being sold in other parts of Judea and Samaria, and included Carlo (a simplified version of the Swedish Carl Gustav submachine-gun), the originally US-made M-16 rifles, and Uzis.

Security forces believe the four cell members, ages 24 to 46, collaborated with Israeli weapons dealers. Two of the arrested cell members, Assam Najam Sharif Safadi, 39, and Ali Najah Sharif Safadi, 41, are also members of the Palestinian Authority Intelligence Services.

Al Monitor columnist Shlomi Eldar cited a PA Arab source who told him, “You don’t need a lot of imagination, professional skill or resources to manufacture the Carlo. All you need is a piece of pipe. With a lathe, you can convert it into the barrel, chamber and firing pin of a rifle.”

There are two prototypes of the Carlo, one with a short barrel, the other with a long barrel, selling for between $770 and $4,400, depending on the reputation of the gun maker. Eldar cited another Arab source who told him that “a few hundred of these rifles are making the rounds in the territories,” and “can be found in quite a few homes, mainly for self-defense, but also just to boost people’s egos. In our society, if you don’t have a gun, you don’t count, and that’s especially true in the refugee camps. Even an old, unreliable Carlo is better than nothing.”

Why I Go Grocery Shopping with an M-16 on My Back.

Thursday, June 9th, 2016

[Reposted from Facebook]

Several days ago I engaged with Leftist activists at the Jerusalem Day Parade, including Sarah Tuttle Singer and a friend of hers that did not give her name. They claimed Muslims in the Damascus Gate marketplace were friends of theirs.

I challenged them to go in and ask the first Muslim they find why the Muslims built a mosque on top of the Jewish Temple Mount?

I also challenged them to go ask their “friends” in what year did an Arab Palestine country, state Or land exist before Israel – and I will be there to watch the reaction.

Sarah’s friend claimed that my gun proves that I am not looking for peace. You see, liberals live in a make believe world so far out of reality it resembles a Disney cartoon. Jews are being slaughtered in the streets by Muslim terrorists, we are unable to walk through the gates of Jerusalem throughout the year, Jews are being shot, run over and murdered and the gun that I wear for self-defense proves that I don’t want peace?! They really have to stop sniffing that peace drug! This morning I went shopping at Rami Levy.

There were Muslims who were in the middle of Ramadan shopping and Jews shopping for Shabbat and the upcoming Shavuot holiday and I was there with my M-16 strapped over my back as well as my secondary weapon on my hip.

Not only were the Jews not nervous about the fact that I’m walking around with two guns, the Muslims knew that if a terrorist walks into that store, I will be protecting them just like everyone else. The guns that I and many other people wear are not a situation we asked for, they are a reaction to the situation we were forced into.

We did not start the wars, we did not ask for the wars And the fact that the Arabs lost the wars they started does not turn them into victims, only into losers.

I understand the world has gotten used to Jews picking up their arms and walking like sheep to the slaughterhouse, but they better wake up and understand, we will do whatever is needed to make sure that never happens again! I will not apologize for my guns nor will I apologize for unwilling to cooperate with the radical Islamic terrorists who want us once again to become victims.

I’m sorry the liberals in Israel have been struck with a fatal case of the Stockholm Syndrome and I’m happy the disease is not airborne. The cure? TRUTH!

The only person who would be nervous about my guns are the terrorists who are looking to murder my people and to them I say, be nervous and be scared!

This is why I spend my days and nights with Standing Together 24/7 IDF supporting IDF soldiers with whatever they need.

We must never apologize for our ability to fight back and defend ourselves, just like we should never apologize for winning the wars the Arabs started in order to destroy us and we certainly should not apologize for dancing through the streets of Jerusalem.

If you feel guilty for our ability to fight back, do not get upset at the world if they criticize us for doing so.

You convinced them that a Jew with a gun is the problem and not the reason we are forced to go shopping with an M-16 on our backs.
