Two Arabs Plotted to Blow up Jerusalem Mall Where They Work

Sunday, September 1st, 2013

Two Arabs from areas of Jerusalem claimed by the Palestinian Authority were preparing to kill Jews during the High Holiday season by blowing up Jerusalem’s luxurious Mamilla Mall where they worked, authorities revealed Sunday after a gag order was lifted.

The two terrorists, in their 20s, were affiliated with a Hamas cell in Ramallah, headquarters of PA chairman Mahmoud Abbas. The head of the terrorist cell was Ramallah resident Hamdi Romana, who maintained an explosives lab  in his home. The cell also planned to manufacture and fire missiles from Ramallah and kidnap Israeli soldiers.

If you listen to the Obama administration, Abbas his fulfilling his commitment to eliminate the terrorist infrastructure in the Palestinian Authority, and if you read this, you know that it is Israel that arrests most heavy duty terrorists.

The two Arabs expressed their anger for the humiliation of having to work for Jews by plotting to plant explosives at the shopping complex, located across the street from the Old City.

The two Arabs are from the neighborhood of Shuafat, located next to the Haredi Ramat Shlomo area, and Ras al-Amud, where the Jews live in the neighborhood of Maaleh Zeitim. Both Jewish areas are considered “settlements” by the Obama administration.

According to the “Peace Process” theory, Israel is blocking economic growth in the Palestinian Authority because of checkpoints and searches.

That theory goes down the drain in the mall bomb plot because there are no checkpoints in Ras al-Amud or Shuafat. Both areas are under the administration of the Municipality of Jerusalem.

All residents are able to take out Israeli citizenship and carry Israeli identity cards.

One of dozens of factors that U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and his Council of Sages do not take into account is that if the Palestinian Authority were to include area of Jerusalem former occupied by Jordan, it is doubtful that the Arabs would want to give up their benefits they enjoy from Israel.

Burger Ranch Going to Ariel, Where McDonald’s Fears to Tread

Tuesday, July 2nd, 2013

Only in Israel could the location of a fast food burger hangout be a “shot heard ‘round the world” that could set off a new Arab uprising.

Or maybe Israel will be the source of a “Peace Burger.”

Burger Ranch has decided to set up a branch in Ariel after McDonald’s Israel, whose franchise is owned by a Peace Now founder Omri Padan, announced it would maintain its policy of boycotting Judea and Samaria.

“Ariel is a major city in Israel, and there is no reason for us not to have a branch there,” Eli Orgad, an owner of Burger Ranch, was quoted as saying in the Israeli newspaper Maariv. “I will open anywhere that the state of Israel has decided that its citizens are located.”

Take that, Omri Padan. Since Jews have no right to live in Judea  and Samaria, he reasons, he is not going give them the right to eat McDonald’s burgers. If they want a Big Mac, let’em go to Tel Aviv, the “real Israel” although a much smaller sandwich.

When Padan was general manager of a textile company, he informed the directors that he would quit if they dared set up a plant in Judea and Samaria, even though it would provide employment to Palestinian Authority Arabs.

The Burger Ranch move to Ariel is a double whammy for Ronald McDonald.

Yigal Delmonti, deputy director of the Yesha Council of Jewish Communities of Judea and Samaria suggested that Israelis boycott the golden arches.

Minister of the Economy Naftali Bennett promised “to come and eat the first hamburger at the [Burger Ranch] branch on the day it opens, which is expected to be next year, when a new mall in Ariel is completed.

By that time, the European Union may have gone bankrupt, which would mean the Palestinian Authority no longer would exist. Or Hezbollah may have fired rockets into northern Israel, overshooting their target and wiping out some Arab villages in Samaria.

Or maybe Abbas will have succeeded in winning official membership in the United Nations, making the Palestinian Authority a full partner in the world’s most prestigious anti-American NGO.

Or maybe the Boycott Israel movement will have collapsed. It has failed to convince people to stop eating at McDonald’s even though it is religiously observant of maintaining a distance of at least a stone’s throw from Judea and Samaria.

“McDonald’s Corporation is a major corporate partner of the Jewish United Fund and Jewish Federation,” according to one Boycott Israel site. “The Jewish United Fund also runs ‘Fun-filled Summer Family Missions to Israel’ where families get to ‘visit an army base and meet with Israeli soldiers’ and ‘visit our sister city, Kiryat Gat and see the important work we are doing there.’ Kiryat Gat is built on stolen Palestinian land – the lands of the villages of Iraq Al Manshiya and Al-Faluja whose residents were ethnically cleansed in 1949 in contravention of International Law….

“McDonald’s first restaurant in the Middle East was in Israel, opened in 1993.”

So if the Boycott Movement cannot keep people from eating Big Macs, presumably it won’t be able to keep them out of Burger Ranch.

And what if Burger Ranch serves up a new item on the menu, something like a Peace Burger?

Take two rolls, one baked in Jenin and the other in the Jewish area of Hevron. Spread hummus generously and add two slices of ground meat, one of them in the design of Abbas’ face and the other an image of Netanyahu,

Take two pieces of Gush Katif lettuce and place them between the slices of meat and then put in a third slice, a cutout of John Kerry’s face.

Now, after the proper blessing for peace,  eat the whole thing and be done with all of them.

Then we can have some peace and go back to arguing about where Obama was born.

Rabbis and Secular Jews in Petition War over Jerusalem Area Mall

Wednesday, June 12th, 2013

Ten rabbis have signed a petition to boycott a mall in the Jerusalem neighborhood of Ramot because of “issues of modesty” while secular residents are organizing a demonstration in support of the shopping mall.

The petition alleges that Haredi rabbis in the Ramot area struck an agreement with the mall developers on rules concerning modesty, according to the Globes business website.

The rabbis charge that the mall owners have gone beyond the agreement on the assumption that the Haredi community in Ramot has not alternative but to use the mall for immediate necessities.

The rabbis urge a total boycott of the mall except for the pharmacy and bank.

The Jerusalem party in the municipality’s city council said it will hold a pro-mall rally on Friday.
