Shhhhhhh! Police Now Say Bus was Firebombed Saturday Night

Monday, April 27th, 2015

Police have concluded that a bus that caught fire Highway 443, once known’s as the ‘Road of Terror” connecting Tel Aviv, Modi’in and Jerusalem, was firebombed. Part of the road is located in Samaria.

The bus was empty of passengers, and the driver was not injured.

The incident was one of several terrorist attacks in eastern Jerusalem during the day.

Police and media, except for The Jewish Press, initially reported that the bus, which was empty of passengers, caught on fire despite social media reports that it has been attacked by a firebomb. Police said at the time that terror was suspected, but they drew no conclusions.

The media giants treated it as a minor incident, perhaps an accidental fire, because they were more interested in telling readers that Israeli security forces killed a knife-wielding Arab terrorist.

The police and Israel’s liberal establishment media are very careful lately before describing terrorist attacks as terrorist attacks. Doing so might discourage the few people who still are nostalgic for the “peace process.”

They wait a couple of days, after everyone has forgotten about what happened, and draw the usual inevitable conclusion that the “traffic accident” was a terrorist attack.

In the case of Saturday night’s firebombing, the official police report  does not suggest “terror.”

The fact is no one knows at this point if an Arab threw the Molotov cocktail that destroyed the bus. Maybe it was a Martian, or drunken settler, or parasol the bus company sent an undercover agent to burn the bus so it could collect insurance?

The official report states, “After an investigation with firefighters,  evidence shows that the bus was set on fire by a firebomb that was hurled at it. Police and soldiers searched the area and found another firebomb ready to be thrown,…

“Investigators collected evidence  and concluded that a firebomb hit the roof of the bus, where it was caught in the opening for air conditioning.”

The fire spread from the middle of the bus, and the driver was able to drive another several hundred  feet to stop at a gas station.

Like rockets that land in open areas and don’t hurt anyone, authorities can ignore the Molotov cocktail attack because the bus was empty.

During the Oslo War in 2000, the IDF banned Arabs from Highway 443, where the attack occurred Saturday night, because of daily rock-throwing, firebombing and shooting attacks.

The Supreme Court later ruled that the closure denied rights to Arabs and the highway was re-opened to everyone.

 

 

24 Firebomb and Rock-Throwing Attacks in One Day

Wednesday, March 4th, 2015

Palestinian Authority and Jerusalem Arabs carried out 24 rock-throwing and Molotov cocktail attacks on Tuesday, according to the 0404 website.

Several victims suffered light wounds, and there was no scarcity of damage to vehicles.

Security forces also foiled a terrorist attack in Samaria when Border Polices in the Jenin area in Samaria spotted a Palestinian Authority Arab who was acting suspiciously.

They searched the 25-year-old man, who turned out to be a terrorist with a knife that he admitted he planned to use to kill a Border Police officer.

Overnight, security forces arrested eight other suspects in the area of Ramallah and Hebron. Two of them were suspected terrorists.

IDF Kills 1 Terrorist, Wounds Another in Samaria

Saturday, January 31st, 2015

Israeli paratroopers shot and killed a Palestinian Authority Arab terrorist Saturday night after he hurled a deadly firebomb at an Israeli motorist traveling in Samaria.

After a brief manhunt the forces shot and captured the second terrorist who also had been targeting Israeli motorists on the same road; he suffered a leg wound. That attacker was hurling firebombs at passing vehicles as well.

The IDF force set out to hunt down the third terrorist as well, who also was attacking passing Israeli vehicles on the road, located near the Jewish community of Yitzhar.

The IDF emphasized to media in its statement that the soldiers were operating according to the rules of engagement.

“I want to bless the soldiers who responded appropriately to the terrorist this evening,” praised Samaria Regional Council head Gershon Mesika. “Unfortunately we already know the awful results that can occur from rocks and firebombs hurled in the name of terror. Still, we must strengthen the soldiers who deal day to day with the enemy and, as we have seen tonight, not hesitate to respond.

“It is crucial that every terrorist know that the moment he intends to throw a rock or a firebomb at an Israeli soldier or an Israeli citizens, his fate is in his own hands.”

Israeli vehicles that travel between the Jewish community of Kedumim and the PA Arab village of Burin are at extremely high risk because the road has become tantamount to a rock-throwing and firebomb field for Arab terrorists in the area.

Since a young girl was critically injured in a terror attack on the road more than a month ago, however, Israeli security forces are taking the matter more seriously and have begun to intensify their protection of motorists in the area. The child and her father were both burned – the little girl nearly died – when their car was struck by a firebomb hurled by Arab road terrorists.

IDF Captures Palestinian Authority Terrorists Who Firebombed 11-Year-Old [video]

Saturday, December 27th, 2014

Soldiers of the elite Duvdevan unit captured the Palestinian Authority terrorists who firebombed the car in which 11-year-old Ayala Shapira was riding Thursday night.

Her condition has improved slightly but she still is in critical condition. Her father, who was driving, was lightly inured when the terrorists hurled the Molotov cocktail at their car near their outpost community of El Matan, located between Maaleh Shomron and Ginot Shomron in Samaria.

The arrest of the terrorists was reported here on Friday, but gag order on details of the arrest was lifted Saturday night. The IDF, working on intelligence information provided by the Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet), arrested two terrorists, one of them around 16 years old, shortly after the attack.

The terrorists are from the village of Azun, from where terrorists have carried out hundreds, and perhaps thousands, of rifle, rock-throwing and firebomb attacks on Jews driving on the main highway between Kfar Saba, on the northern edge of metropolitan Tel Aviv, and Jewish communities in central Samaria.

The terrorists confessed to the attempted murders of Ayala and her father.

They armed themselves with firebombs, waited on the side of the road and lit and threw the weapon when they saw the Shapira vehicle advancing.

They fled back to Azun and were arrested the same night following intense efforts by intelligence units.

‘Slight Improvement’ in Life-threatening Condition of Firebomb Victim

Friday, December 26th, 2014

Doctors at Sheba Hospital in Tel Aviv said Friday morning that there is a “slight improvement” in the condition of 11-year-old Ayala Shapira, who still is fighting for her life after a Palestinian Authority terrorist set on fire the car in which she and her father were riding last night.

They live in the El Matan outpost, adjacent to Maaleh Shomron, which is part of the Maaleh-Ginot-Karnei Shomron communities between Kfar Saba and Kedumim.

Her father escaped the burning vehicle with light burn wounds. Ayala suffered burns over 30-40 percent of her body, mostly in the upper parts and in the face.

Last month, Ayala’s mother Ruth was targeted in a similar Molotov cocktail attack in the same spot of last night’s attack. Her car was destroyed but she was not injured.

The girl’s father Avner told Yediot Acharonot that he saw the terrorists lighting the firebomb and throwing it.

“I shouted to my daughter to get out and she was able to do so,” he said. “We were able by the grace of God to get out of the car, but she was much more seriously wounded than I was. We hope that the hospital staff will be able to return her to her previous state.”

Ruth Shapira told the Israeli newspaper, “Ayala is a very special girl. She is an exceptionally smart child, who was on her way home from a program for youth gifted in mathematics at the Bar-Ilan University. “

Police said that Ayala almost certainly would have been dead if she had not rolled herself on the ground to extinguish the flames on her burning body.

As usual after a terrorist attack, the army sent a large number of soldiers to search for the attacker, who still is at large.

The nearby highway 55, the only direct road connecting Kfar Saba with Jewish communities in the area, has been the scene of hundreds of attempts to kill Jews with rocks, firebombs and guns. The army occasionally deploys several patrols simultaneously on the road.

And how does the pro-Palestinian Authority crowd understand the attack.

The Bethlehem-based Ma’an News Agency told its English-speaking readers, who include foreign media, a blanket lie.

“Maaleh Shomron is part of a larger settlement bloc…surrounding a number of Palestinian villages on at least three sides and preventing Palestinians from freely moving in the area,” it wrote.

As usual, the opposite is true.

There are far more Arab villages than there are Jewish communities, and the only ”preventing” to moving freely comes from Palestinian Authority terrorists who constantly try to murder Jews.

 

Terrorists Firebomb Home in Beit El in Samaria

Monday, December 1st, 2014

One or more Palestinian Authority terrorists hurled a firebomb Sunday night at a home in the Jewish community of Beit El, in the Binyamin region of Samaria. No one was injured, and the attackers fled.

If the Arabs had “succeeded” by burning the house to the ground and wounding or killing the residents, the establishment media would have been all over the story.

But, like rock-throwing, it was barely reported.

That is how the center-left media moguls, including the government-funded electronic media, keep most Israelis in the dark. When a major terrorist attack occurs in Judea and Samaria, it is reported as if it out of the ordinary, an assumed sign of escalation, of an intifada, of the need for the government to take stock of why it allows Jews to remain in Judea and Samaria, unwanted by Arab terrorists.

Throwing rocks and firebombs at Israeli citizens and soldiers are daily events. It is not an intifada and it is not a war. It is carried out by a minority of Arabs, almost all of them under 30 and who have been fed 20 years of incitement by official Palestinian Authority media to hate Jews and to become martyrs.

The JNS news agency ran an interesting article this week that the Islamic State slave markets, and the ISIS’ treatment of young girls as objects of merchandise, operate with nary a whisper from the mainstream Muslim community.

Similarly, the majority of Palestinian Authority Arabs may not love Israel but they are not interested in an intifada. They know their own Palestinian Authority is a terrible alternative to the “occupation,” but they are afraid to speak out because of fear of punishment by the criminals, who do not even deserve the title ”terrorists.”

Israel’s establishment media is just as much to blame.

The attacks are on “settlers,” so they don’t merit coverage, unless someone is killed or seriously injured.

But when a couple of right-wing criminals, and that is what they are, set fire to an Arab-Israeli co-existence school, or post pictures of Tzipi Livni and other officials in Nazi uniforms, the broadcasters on Israel Radio rush to the microphone to resurrect the ghost of the blood libel aghast the national religious community for the murder of Prime Minister Yitzchak Rabin.
