Arabs Attack Police and Civilians in Jerusalem

Monday, November 3rd, 2014

Arabs hurled rocks and shot off fireworks at Israel Police in Jerusalem this afternoon (Monday, Nov. 3).

District police used standard riot dispersal methods to control the mob, including firing tear gas canisters.

Arab attackers also hurled rocks at a minibus passing near the Mount of Olives, in a separate incident.

The windshield of the vehicle was smashed but none of the passengers were physically injured.

Israeli security forces immediately began searching the area to hunt down the perpetrators.

When and if the attackers are caught, they may be punished with up to 20 years in prison due to a newly-stiffened penalty whose severity was harshened by the government cabinet this week.

Both attacks involved dozens of Arabs and took place in areas of Jerusalem that were restored to the capital in 1967 during the Six Day War.

Earlier in the day, police arrested three Arab residents of the Jerusalem A-Tur neighborhood. The suspects were taken into custody and charged in connection with last month’s destruction of tombstones at the Mount of Olives cemetery.

Report: Kiryat Arba Chief Rabbi ‘Settling’ in Jerusalem

Monday, October 27th, 2014

Kiryat Arba-Hebron Chief Rabbi Dov Lior has reportedly decided to leave his community and move to the Jerusalem neighborhood of Beit Orot on the Mount of Olives, according to Kipa, a national religious website.

The rabbi, who wields enormous influence as one of the top national religious rabbis and who heads the Kiryat Arba Hesder Yeshiva and the Council of Rabbis of Judea and Samaria, reportedly plans to complete the move by Chanukah.

The rabbi reportedly bought property in Beit Orot two years ago, according to The Jerusalem Post. His assistant told the Post that having reached age 80, the rabbi ‘thought it right to step down from his post’ and decided to move to Beit Orot because ‘settling in the east of the city’ [of Jerusalem] was “close to his heart.”

Rabbi Lior is student of Rabbi Tzvi Yehuda Kook and served as rabbi of Moshav Kfar HaRoeh for 10 years prior to accepting the post at Kiryat Arba.

The Bayit Yehudi party, with whom the rabbi is close, said it would move to fill the position of Chief Rabbi of Kiryat Arba-Hebron with someone close to the mainstream of the national religious movement.

Another Ambush in Jerusalem as Media Ignores ‘Silent Intifada’

Wednesday, October 15th, 2014

Arab rioters attacked Jewish motorists in eastern Jerusalem Tuesday night in what has become a “silent intifada” thanks to establishment media’s generally ignoring frequent violence.

Arab rioters attacked several cars whose occupants were on their way on the eve of Hoshana Raba, the last day of Sukkot, to learn Torah at the “Beit HaHoshen,” in the heart of a hostile and almost entirely Arab neighborhood above Wadi Joz in eastern Jerusalem.

Shuki Set wrote on the Rotter.net website that he and his son were driving to Beit HaHoshen when they got stuck in a traffic jam, a ready-made setting for Arab violence.

“Arabs suddenly struck our car with rocks at point-blank range,” he wrote. “The kicked the car and smashed the side mirrors, but there was nowhere to flee. We simply stood there like sitting ducks, hoping we would not be physically harmed.

“Suddenly, one of the rioters heaved a huge rock and smashed the back window.”

The driver barely was able to escape the ambush, and he called the police. He discovered that there were other families who were on their way to learn and who also were attacked.

“This Jerusalem!” he wrote. [It is] two minutes from Hebrew University. Where are the police” Where are the authorities?

“I never felt so ashamed and helpless in my life.

“I hope the government will start to exercise its sovereignty over our capital. If we don’t stop this erosion in Beit Hanina, the rioters will get to the Mount of Olives and then Rehavia,” an upscale neighborhood near downtown Jerusalem.

We have news for Shuki. Arab attacks on Jews traveling to and from the Mount of Olives as well as the nearby Maaleh Zeitim neighborhood are almost daily events.

The establishment rarely report on them.

Why?

Because their agenda is that “United Jerusalem” includes Ramot and Gilo, maybe Talpiot, Pisgat Ze’ev and French Hill, but does not include anywhere else where Jews live in eastern, southern and northern Jerusalem.

The media silence is somewhat reminiscent of the Arab violence in Gush Katif from the 1990s until the day in the summer of 2005 that the Sharon administration expelled 9,000 Jews from Gaza and withdrew the entire military, down to the last soldier.

The establishment newspapers, website and TV and radio stations only reported violence when someone was killed or badly injured, and they twisted the reportage to push their agenda that things would be a lot more peaceful if the Jews simply would go away.

Even the media snobs in Tel Aviv know today that the result was they also had to hide in bomb shelters to protect themselves from missiles fired in Gaza.

If Israel’s media and political leaders really had learned the lesson, they would not ignore the daily violence in eastern Jerusalem that, thanks to the self-muzzling, has become a “silent intifada.”

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu last week finally broke the silence and ordered police to crack down on Arab attackers “to ensure the safety of Jerusalem.”

Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat occasionally stands up and makes a nice speech that the police are not doing enough to protect Jews in eastern Jerusalem.

Public Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovitch, arguably one of the worst ministers ever to hold the portfolio, insists that his office has zero tolerance towards the rioters” and that hundreds of arrests have been carried out.

Arrests usually end up in in the revolving door, but he often claims violence is on the decrease. He usually does so at almost the same time rioters prove him wrong.

The attitude of the establishment media was best-expressed in a recent editorial in Haaretz, the left-wing bastion to which foreign media turn for their “knowledge” of Israel.

4 Women Survive Near Lynch on Mount of Olives

Thursday, October 2nd, 2014

A woman and three teenage girls miraculously escaped an Arab lynch mob on Thursday afternoon in the Jerusalem A-Tur neighborhood on the Mount of Olives.

The driver of the car, a teacher, and the three teenage girls were returning from school to the Maaleh HaZeitim neighborhood at around 1:30pm, when they detoured through the A-Tur neighborhood due to congestion near Wadi Joz. The detour is a standard shortcut to avoid the Wadi Joz traffic.

Once inside the neighborhood, the driver noticed a crowd on the road. She had to stop and the car was then hit by a rock.

The rest of the Arabs then noticed them, and within seconds, the car was surround by Arabs, and the way behind them purposely blocked by another car.

The Arabs began pelting the car with large rocks from all directions. The car’s windows and the car were smashed.

The girls in the back seat covered themselves with their school knapsacks to prevent themselves from getting hit by the rocks and shattering glass.

One girl in the back seat was injured by a rock to the back.

Not yet panicking, the driver kept trying to call the police and the local security services to help them escape.

After being hit by rocks for a few minutes, the driver finally saw an opening and zoomed out of the neighborhood.

Once outside, they flagged down a police car, at which point the policeman called for an ambulance and transported two of the injured and scared girls to Shaarei Tzedek Hospital.

Police cars were then seen entering the A-Tur neighborhood.

Update: The girls have been released from the hospital.
