Machsom Watch Activist Shames Herself in Attempt to Harass IDF

Friday, July 3rd, 2015

A member of the leftist Machsom Watch distinguished herself in Hebron this week in an odd display of insensitivity to the very needs of those for whom she claimed to advocate.

As a result, Leah Shakdiel embarrassed herself rather than the IDF soldiers she had set out to harass.

Shakdiel appeared at the IDF checkpoint with several other members of the organization, but when the group began harassing the soldiers, a call was made to Arutz Sheva TV, and a camera crew was sent out to film the women at “work.”

The man confronting the women on camera is the person who received the call from the soldiers. Following is the video of the encounter with an English-language transcript of what transpired.

LS: Nurit, Nurit, come on please.

A7: She’s afraid, she’s afraid, she’s afraid, she’s afraid. That’s clear.

LS: Of course, because you are a frightening person.

A7: Right, thank G-d.

A7: Here, these sweet Arabs don’t scare you.

LS: No.

A7: A Jew like me frightens you.

LS: Right. Totally, yes. Because you are violent. Violent. They are not violent. They seek peace.

A7: I forget the name of your organization; I only remember your address. The Street of the Traitors, Number 6, right? Hah? You came to give a little ….

LS: See you later …

A7: No, not ‘see you.’ Good bye, but not ‘see you.’

LS: We will keep coming. Don’t worry.

A7: I am also here, you see. Thank G-d, it’s not empty. You come here once in a while when they pay you money. Ofer Ohana. You come here once in a long while, when you are paid money. You see? You see?

LS: The opposite. You are the one who is paid. You get a salary from the Jewish community in Hebron.

A7: You see the difference between me and you? Guys, hello. Do you see the difference between me and you? Look at you.

LS: You see. You receive a salary, that’s clear.

A7: Hanan, shalom. Look. Look at how she is drinking, right in front of Arabs who are fasting on Ramadan. Tell me, aren’t you ashamed? A little consideration. Even I am considerate of their feelings. Look at what a disgrace. Right? She has no shame. Look! You see? There you go.

Arab bystanders: Shame on you! Shame on you. We are fasting. This is Ramadan.

A7: There you go. You see? You’ve made my movie. Good for you. Thank you very much. Shame on you, really. A disgrace. You see? Even your friends…

LS: I understand that you like Ofer Ohana. So you help Ofer.

A7: Lady, I have enough friends here.

LS: You like him?

Arab bystanders: You should not have lifted the water.

A7: You see? You see?

LS: Okay, I really apologize. Him, you like?

A7: Thank you, friend (in Arabic, to Arab bystander)

LS: Him, you like? Him, you like? (incredulous, to Arab bystander)

Arab bystander: Yes. )

A7: You see?

LS: You don’t know him.

A7: You see what this is? You see what you’re doing here? You come and shame yourself. You should be ashamed of yourselves. You came to give ammunition to the enemy. You see? You came to aid the enemy and you emerged degraded, even in the eyes of the enemy.

A7: See how the Holy One, Blessed Be He is good and beneficent to everyone, and He Knows how to get rid of you. He knows how to humiliate you; He has brought you down to the dust. Get into the car and go. Stand before the IDF soldiers and tell them that you are shaming them.

Coalition Chair’s Letter of Praise for 100 Shofars Protest in NYC

Tuesday, April 29th, 2014

Protesters who plan to demonstrate today at the world’s largest shofar-blowing event in history in New York City have drawn praise from the Israeli government coalition chairman, who expressed his admiration for their “courage.”

Israeli government coalition chairman MK Yariv Levin  is “deeply moved” by demonstrators who are to gather to protest participation in the Israel Day Parade of groups promoting the boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel.

In a letter sent to Richard Allen, founder of JCCWatch – organizer of the rally being held in New York – Levin praised the rally, set for Tuesday April 29 at  5 pm, “courageous stance of so many friends of Israel involved in the parade, calling to delegitimize those who delegitimize Israel.

“It is not logical or reasonable for Israel supporters to condone or overlook or indirectly cooperate with BDS groups which represent the antithesis of support for Israel. Refusing to recognize the State of Israel’s sovereign right to develop and maintain an independent legal position on any issue of national importance is not legitimate.”

The UJA-Federation and Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC) which sponsors the annual Israel Day Parade, agreed this year to permit a number of anti-Israel groups to march this year in the parade, setting off a tsunami of protest over their participation. Among those  are:

  • Partners for Progressive Israel: which encourages the public to boycott Ahava Cosmetics, SodaStream and wine from nine Israeli vineyards.
  • The New Israel Fund: which finances NGOs (non-governmental organizations) that promote BDS activities against Israel. NIF funds Machsom Watch, the Coalition of Women for Peace, Women Against violence, Social TV and Mossawa, all of which signed a letter to the Norwegian government pension fund, urging it to divest from Israel.
  • B’Tselem: A major recipient of funds from NIF, the group has produced the anti-israel video shown at Israel Apartheid Week events held at various universities around the world. The organization’s board chairman, Oren Yiftachel, has publicly called for “effective sanctions” against Israel.

The rally, promoted as the “largest shofar blowing event in Jewish history,” is set to take place this afternoon (April 29) at 5:00 p.m. Eastern time (New York City) in front of the UJA-Federation building at 130 East 59th Street, between Park and Lexington Avenues. Participants are urged to bring their shofars to the rally. Those who do not have a shofar but who wish to participate can receive one to use on site.

Scheduled speakers include Rabbi David Algaze from the World Committee for the Land of Israel / Havurat Yisrael; Richard Allen, JCCWatch; Dr. Paul Brody of the Jewish Political Education Foundation; Helen Freedman of Americans for a Safe Israel; Beth Gilinsky of National Conference on Jewish Affairs; Mort Klein, head of Zionist Organization of America; Robert Muchnick of Manhigut Yehudit, and Lauri Regan of Endowment for Middle East Truth.

Settlers Cancel Event with IDF Commander to Protest Pro-Arab Stance

Monday, May 6th, 2013

The stabbing murder of Eviatar Borowski at Tapuach junction in Samaria has brought to a head the bitter relationship between local Jewish residents and the head of the IDF Central Command Major General Nitzan Alon. The Jewish residents blame Maj. Gen. Alon’s policy of containing Arab violence combined with zero tolerance of suspected Jewish violence for the deterioration of security under his command.

According to Hakol Hayehudi, many residents and public officials in Judea and Samaria have been calling recently for the dismissal of Maj. Gen. Alon, because of the worst security situation in the area since Operation Defensive Shield a decade ago.

Eviatar Borowski’s widow also published a letter saying Alon is “heartless” and calling for his dismissal.

Maj. Gen. Alon’s ties with Israel’s extreme left are considered among the strongest in the IDF top echelon. His wife, Mor Alon, is a known supporter of “Machsom Watch” which documents the activities of IDF soldiers at checkpoints in Judea and Samaria.

For some reason, the leaders of the town of Beit El picked a time when public uproar against Alon is gaining momentum to embrace the IDF commander and invite him to be the guest of honor in the main event of Jerusalem Day, at a local synagogue.

The invitation, sent out before the murder, dismayed many local residents. But in recent days the grumbling has grown into loud protest, and on Sunday residents hung fliers around town protesting Alon’s invitation.

“Inviting someone like Nitzan Alon to the town of Beit El of all places, and on the day of the liberation of Jerusalem and Judea and Samaria, is an insult to a substantial portion of the population,” the flyer, distributed to community mailboxes, declared. “We ask that you act to revoke his participation as a guest of honor at the prayer ceremony.”

The flyer contains outrageous quotes by Alon, like his statement after the murder of the Fogel family, when he said it was “a price tag price tag,” referring to the campaign by some Jews to impose a cost in loss of property to Arab hostilities.

It appears that the protest, which was joined by many Beit El residents, including public figures and rabbis, left an impression. On Sunday, the Beit El leadership informed Maj. Gen. Nitzan Alon that he was no longer welcome.

Arab Terrorist Gets Out of Prison, Murders Israeli in the Shomron

Tuesday, April 30th, 2013

At Tapuach junction (Samaria / Shomron), connecting traffic from Jerusalem, Ariel and Tel Aviv, an Arab terrorist, on Tuesday morning, stabbed and killed an Israeli man (32), grabbed his gun and started shooting at the nearby IDF Border Police. The victim was Evyatar Borovsky a resident of Yitzhar, and actor, and the father of 5 children.

The IDF Border Police unit shot back hitting the terrorist in the leg. The terrorist was transported to Beilinson (Rabin) hospital.

It is not clear why they shot the terrorist in the leg, and not the head.

The Fatah terrorist had been released from Israeli prison just 6 months ago, after serving 3 years for another terror attack involving planting a bomb.

The terrorist’s brother is in a Palestinian Authority prison for allegedly collaborating with Israel.

The nearby strategic checkpoint, a mere 30 meters north of where the terror attack took place, that protected the area was removed a few months ago, under orders of former Defense Minister Ehud Barak, due to pressure from the radical-leftwing NGO Machsom Watch.

Last night, two terrorists were caught at the same location carrying a firebombs and knives, as reported by HaKol HaYehudi.

There have been 4 terror attempts at this junction in the past month alone.

Deputy Minister Tzipi Hotoveli (LIkud) said, “The terror attack in the Shomron is a direct result of the incitement coming from the heart of the [Palestinian] Authority against Israel and the Jewish people, and the responsibility falls on the [Palestinian] Authority and those that stand at its head”.

Rabbi Chaim Goldberg, the Rosh Yeshiva of a Kedumim High School, told the Tazpit News Agency that as he approached the Tapuach Junction he noticed there was mayhem: “I saw three young women jump into the street. I then heard shots fired. I noticed a person who was lying on the ground get up with a gun in his hand. I slowed down and ducked so he wouldn’t see me. I then called the emergency center to notify them about the incident. I now understand that the terrorist nabbed the gun from the Jew he murdered and I was the first target he saw.”

Several bullets hit his vehicle, but he was not injured.

Evyatar Borovsky’s funeral will begin at 5:30 PM in Kfar Chassidim.
