Police Foil Bombing in Jerusalem

Friday, October 16th, 2015

Police prevented on Friday morning a probable terror attack in Jerusalem by discovering am explosive device at a checkpoint at an Arab neighborhood next to Hadassah Mount Scopus Hospital.

A sniffer dog helped located the pipe bomb that was in a vehicle, and sappers neutralized the device.

Earlier this week, alert traffic police discovered explosives in a car driven by an Arab woman on the highway from Maaleh Adumim to Jerusalem. They stopped car, and she threw a bomb at the police, lightly injuring one of the officers.

It has not been disclosed if she was on her way to carry out a suicide bombing or was trying to transfer the explosives to a terrorist in the city for a mega-terror attack.

Failed Ma’ale Adumim Suicide Bomber Identified as Jerusalem Resident

Sunday, October 11th, 2015

The failed suicide bomber who attempted to blow herself up outside the Jerusalem suburb of Ma’ale Adumim has been identified as a 31-year-old resident of an Arab neighborhood in the capital.

According to local sources she divides her time between the Jerusalem neighborhood of Jabel Mukabar and the Jordan Valley city of Jericho, in the east.

A female terrorist previously unknown to Israeli security forces, she lit a gas balloon she carried in her car – not a bona fide explosive device – and expected it to do the job.

The makeshift bomb did explode, but not in the way she expected. She tried to leave the car as it went up in flames.

A search of the injured bomber after the attack revealed she had handwritten notes, supporting “martyrs.”

She was critically wounded in her attempt to carry out her attack, and is now lying in a bed at Hadassah Ein Kerem Medical Center.

The traffic police officer who blocked her from successfully reaching downtown Jerusalem to carry out her attack was admitted to Shaare Zedek Medical Center in good condition with second-degree burns on his face and upper body.

6 Months’ Jail Without Trial for Jewish Teen Linked to Church Arson

Wednesday, August 5th, 2015

Ma’ale Adumim resident Mordechai Meir, 18, will be held for the next six months without trial under an administrative detention order signed by Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon, according to a statement issued by the Defense Ministry.

Meir was placed under routine house arrest on Monday in connection with the arson attack on the Church of the Multiplication of Loaves and Fishes at Tabgha on the shores of the Sea of Galilee (Lake Kinneret), near Tiberias. He was also banned from traveling to specific areas due to his alleged involvement in the arson.

A second suspect, Aviatar Slonim, was also arrested for participation in a violent radical Jewish organization. He too was banned from traveling to Judea, Samaria and Jerusalem.

“Minister Ya’alon signed the six month administrative detention order for the radical right wing activist Mordechi Mayer from Ma’ale Adumim due to his participation in the violent actions and terror attacks and violence which occurred recently as a member of a Jewish terror group. The order was signed at the recommendation of the Israel Security Agency / Shin Bet,” the Defense Ministry said in its statement.

Meir was jailed under authorization granted Tuesday to Ya’alon by Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein, who legalized implementation of administrative detention orders against persons of interest, including Jews suspected of terror activity.

The Honenu organization that works to defend the civil rights of detainees, said in a statement responding to the detention:

“The fact that the same youth received a house arrest order only two days ago and now is already being “upgraded” to administrative detention points towards a populist agenda within law enforcement. We firmly object to the use of administrative detention against Jews. The use of these draconian orders, circumvents the court system, and nullifies the courts role in the state.”

The move follows by one day the arrest of 24-year-old Meir Ettinger, the grandson of the late Rabbi Meir Kahane, on suspicion of involvement in nationalist crimes. Ettinger, who was arrested in Tzfat, has been barred from Judea and Samaria since January.

Burger King Returning to Israel

Wednesday, June 24th, 2015

The Burger King franchise will be returning to Israel.

Burger King arrived in the Israeli market in 1994, but cancelled the contract with Rikamor Ltd. following a worldwide boycott by Muslim groups, after Rikamor opened a Burger King branch in the Israeli city of Maaleh Adumim.

By 2010, all the Burger Kings in Israel were shut down.

Orgad Holdings bought the branches and converted them into the Israeli-based Burger Ranches.

Now, Tunisian-born businessmans, Pierre Besnainou, is planning to open 50 Burger King outlets around Israel over the next 5 years, with an initial investment of $12 million.

The first branch is scheduled to open in August, and 5 more by December.

But will they open in the cities of Maaleh Adumim, Ariel and Ginot Shomron?
