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.

Escalation as Tragedy Avoided in Female Terrorist Car Bomb En Route to Downtown Jerusalem

Sunday, October 11th, 2015

A major tragedy was avoided Sunday morning when a 45-year-old police officer stopped a female suicide bomber at the al-Zaim checkpoint near Ma’ale Adumim, about three miles from downtown Jerusalem.

According to police, the vehicle looked suspicious as it traveled slowly in the bus lane on Route 437 shortly after 7 am, so the traffic police officer signaled for the driver to stop.

She obeyed, but as the policeman began to approach the vehicle, the driver yelled “Allahu Akbar!” and detonated a bomb in her car.

According to Israel Radio, the bomber was trying to reach downtown Jerusalem. Instead, she was badly injured in the blast.

MDA teams who arrived treated the police officer at the scene and then evacuated him to Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem with burns to his face and upper body.

The terrorist was transported to Hadassah Ein Kerem Medical Center.

Following the attack, the section connecting the Highway 1 Ma’ale Adumim ramp and the al-Zaim checkpoint was closed in both directions.

“When we arrived we were led to a man .. who was fully conscious,” paramedic Aharon Adler told Walla!. “He was walking, and suffered burns to his upper body. We gave him medical attention and evacuated him to hospital in stable condition.”

Adler added that “when we were able to go near the vehicle, we took care of the driver who was conscious, with burns all over her body, and evacuated her to hospital in critical condition.”

Former MK Prof. Aryeh Eldad told NRG: “I was traveling uphill from Ma’ale Adumim to Jerusalem. About 100 yards ahead of me the traffic had stopped and I saw smoke. Police arrived with a sapper, and I heard it was a suicide bomber on the road. We heard warnings about this area and apparently the warning was about this.”

Early analysis suggests that this morning’s car bomb marks an escalation in the cycle of violence, from sporadic acts on the part of individuals and loosely organized riots to an attack operation that requires a more established organization.

The same analysts point to internal struggles inside the Palestinian Authority, and between Hamas and the PA, as well as between Salafi Muslim jihadists in Gaza and the ruling Sunni Muslim Hamas — all of which are being expressed through anti-Israeli violence.

A female suicide bomber drove up to the Al-Zaim checkpoint near Maaleh Adumim towards Jerusalem on Sunday morning, just after 7 AM, according to Israeli police.

She was stopped 200 meters before the checkpoint by a policeman, as something about her looked suspicious.

As the policeman approached to question her, she yelled “Allahu Achbar” and then blew up a bomb in her car, lightly wounding the policeman (45).

The Arab terrorist is seriously wounded.

Initially policed believe she intended to blow up at the checkpoint itself and kill the soldiers, but according to Israel Radio, she was on her way to downtown Jerusalem.

A second bomb has been found in the car and sappers are diffusing it.

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?

Purim in Pictures – Jerusalem and Maaleh Adumim

Friday, March 6th, 2015

Jerusalem began celebrating “Shushan Purim” Thursday night just as most of the rest of Israel, including Maaleh Adumim east of the capital, was ending Purim festivals.

Purim is a national holiday and costume party in Israel, when there is a spirit of unity. The election campaign has turned Purim into a two-month festival for politicians, who put masks over their masks in their desire to create total disunity that actually unifies the country not to trust any of them.

How’s that for “Na-hafach-hu”?
