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.
