Gaza Children’s Festival Shows Toddlers Being Trained to Murder Jews [video]

Tuesday, April 26th, 2016

The Prime Minister’s Office Arab media spokesperson Ofir Gendelman tweeted an extremely sobering message late Monday on social media, the third day of Passover.

“ISIS-like brainwashing in a kids’ festival in Gaza: toddlers act out stabbing & shooting attacks against Israelis,” Gendelman tweeted.

“When Palestinians send their kids to act in this school play no wonder their kids committ (sic) attacks when they’re older” Gendelman tweeted. More to the point, who hires the teachers who write and direct these plays? Where do they get their material, and are they researching it online in Da’esh websites?

Similar plays and festivals have been broadcast on children’s television programs in Gaza as well as in the Palestinian Authority-controlled areas of Judea and Samaria for decades.

But even those programs have become increasingly cold-blooded and brutal over the past five years — indicating the increasing influence of Da’esh (ISIS) in the region.

The fruit of those past efforts ripened and was borne out this past October with the spontaneous eruption of the deadly wave of terror that burst against Israeli Jews — and some Arabs — perpetrated to a great extent by attackers who were age 21 and younger.

These are the children who grew up in the generation nurtured in the all-encompassing environment of schoolbooks, television programs, summer camps and public venues all devoted to the glorification of death, so-called “martyrdom” in the cause of murderous terrorism against Israel.

How deadly will the next generation be?

Stabber of Gay Woman in Jerusalem Pride Parade Convicted of Murder

Tuesday, April 19th, 2016

by Michael Bachner

Yishai Schlissel, an ultra-Orthodox Jew from Modi’in Illit, was convicted on Tuesday of the murder of 16-year-old Shira Banki in a stabbing rampage during Jerusalem’s gay pride parade last year. Schlissel stabbed several marchers in the July parade, which he deemed “blasphemous,” killing Banki and wounding six others. He was also convicted of six counts of attempted murder.

Judge Nava Ben Or ruled that “it has been proven beyond reasonable doubt that the accused killed Shira premeditatively.”

This is the second time Schlissel is convicted of stabbing Jerusalem gay pride parade marchers. He was convicted in 2005 for stabbing and wounding several marchers in that year’s parade, and received ten years in prison. He was released just three weeks before attacking the parade yet again and murdered Banki.

The court blasted the Israeli police for allowing Schlissel to enter the parade with “intolerable ease,” despite his history and clear willingness to attack parade-goers. “The writing was on the wall,” the court said.

Schlissel repeatedly claimed in the past that the “blasphemous” parade desecrated Jerusalem’s sanctity and needed to be stopped at any cost. Schlissel refused to be represented by a lawyer throughout the trial, arguing that the court had no authority to judge him since it was not a religious court.

“He was very quiet while running between marchers and stabbing them, not hollering like you would imagine,” testified Eran Tzidkiyahu during the trial. He said he saw the knife being being pulled out of Banki’s back after the stabbing.

“The defendant was previously convicted of similar offenses for which he served a prison term,” commented the state prosecution after the ruling. “Nevertheless, he was not rehabilitated and has never expressed regret or sadness for his actions. He became even more radical and repeated his severe crimes.”

“This will not be the first time he goes to prison, which is a sign that prison doesn’t work,” commented Noam Eyal, who was wounded by Schlissel during the 2015 parade, after the conviction. “He is dangerous to the public and should not ever see the light of day.”

Another victim, Sheli Bar Lev, said she felt “relieved that he will not be coming to any parade ever again.”

Hottest New Arab Hit on YouTube: ‘Lovers of Stabbing’

Saturday, January 30th, 2016

Arab teen terrorists coming out of the Palestinian Authority are being moved by the beat of a specially-crafted form of music video.

It is the music of the street and the promise of glory forever — the knowledge that one’s family will be forever grateful, having received a salary* for one’s efforts despite a young age — and the endless, driving, urgent beat that some Arab teens find so compelling.

That may have been part of what sent two Arab teens into the Old City Saturday evening to stab two Jewish teens as they left the Western Wall after completing their Sabbath prayers.

For readers who haven’t had the chance, take a spin on the Middle Eastern side of YouTube network – if you’re over 18 and have a strong stomach, that is – to check out the Arab teen motivational movie clips.

This is top-flight 21st century Palestinian Authority government incitement, masterminded in the most cunning manner. For decades Mickey Mouse and life-size cuddly cartoon creatures have been talking up the joys of martyrdom; long enough to prepare human fuel for the war machine revving up in the current wave of terror. But now that those youths are growing up, with hormones to match, children’s programming no longer cuts the mustard.

So what’s being used to move them in the right direction? Cue hot-blooded, fast-moving, specially-crafted music videos. One in particular features a hit called “Lovers of Knives” by Gaza-based band “Al-Gorba’a” that came out last October.

Sadly, its effectiveness is all too evident. The above video and countless others like it are considered the hottest tunes on the street in the Palestinian Authority today.

The fast-moving images are slickly edited to intersperse “daring” attacks by young Arabs met with “brutality” by clearly overwhelming numbers of Israeli security, military and police forces armed and uniformed to the nines. There is plenty of deep red blood, dramatic scenes of ambulances and medical stretchers, scenes of massive support and honor by crowds  for the dead “martyr” shot by Israeli forces, when brought to his final resting place.

The songwriters and singers use the names of those who have died attacking Israelis as mantras in the rhythmic, almost hypnotic beat.

The comments in Arabic say things like, “Allah have mercy upon our martyrs, God grant us victory over the Jews!” and “God protect the youth of Palestine.”

*   The Palestinian Authority government pays the families of “martyrs” a monthly stipend in compensation for the efforts of anyone who gives their lives for the “nationalist” cause of murdering Israelis. The more murders, the higher the stipend. It is not clear why foreign governments do not demand accountability regarding this practice and its connection with the massive foreign aid transferred to the PA government to support its operations.

French Jewish Lawmaker Found Murdered Near Paris

Wednesday, January 13th, 2016

The body of a French Jewish municipal councillor was found Tuesday morning at his apartment, stabbed multiple times and badly beaten according to police sources quoted by Le Figaro.

Alain Ghozland, 73, was described by the Conseil Représentatif des Institutions Juives de France (CRIF) as a “prominent leader of the local Jewish community.”

Originally from Algeria, he lived in the heavily Jewish Paris suburb of Créteil, about seven miles from the French capital. It is also the town where a Jewish couple was attacked – and raped – by robbers in December 2014.

“People are upset. They do not know what to think and ask a lot of questions,” a relative told L’Express and other media.

He was found after his brother called police when he did not show up for regular shacharit morning prayers at their synagogue.

According to the report by Le Figaro, there were also signs of forced entry into Ghozland’s home, and that the apartment was ransacked. His car was also missing.

The family has raised the possibility that he was attacked due to his identity as a Jew. Judicial sources have said an autopsy is to be performed to determine the cause of death due to the attack.

Police have no leads as yet, according to L’Express.

Also on Tuesday, French Jewish community leaders began debating whether Jewish men in Marseille should remove their yarmulkahs when walking in public due to the rise in deadly anti-Semitic attacks. But the Chief Rabbi of France, Haim Korsia, nixed the idea and said, “We should not give in to anything, we will continue to wear the kippah.”

The debate came a day after a machete-swinging teenage terrorist stabbed Binyamin Amsalem outside a Marseille synagogue as he was walking to the Franco-Hebraic Institute, where he is a teacher of Jewish subjects.

The nearly 16-year-old attacker informed investigators when he was caught (about ten minutes after the attack) and taken into custody that he was “acting for Da’esh” (ISIS) and that when he is released, he will arm himself and kill police.

Feces, DNA Revealed Whereabouts of Tel Aviv Shooter

Sunday, January 10th, 2016

It was the bodily needs of the Tel Aviv shooter, an Israeli Arab, that proved to be his undoing. In Judaism, there is a blessing for the correct function of those things.

Israel Police and all the linked and jointly operating security forces received unstinting praise Saturday night from Israel’s two top leaders for finding the Tel Aviv shooter. Their work was particularly unpleasant.

Security officials used DNA testing and feces found in an abandoned building in Nashet Melhem’s village to track down the killer.

Melhem had fled north toward his home village of Ar’ara immediately after murdering three people in Tel Aviv on January 1 — something suspected by security officials at the time, but that could not be confirmed.

In actuality, he made it back within hours, officials told reporters after he was killed in a shootout at the village on Friday.

First he hid out in the fields. Then he found shelter in an abandoned building – that’s where Israeli security personnel found the first traces of his presence.

By the following Monday they had tracked him down to that building, located in a field within the village boundaries. But they had missed him; he was gone.

How did they know he was there? Human feces was found at the site. They took a sample and tested it; the sample matched Melhem’s DNA, according to Channel 10 television news. Ditto a spent cigarette butt, which also matched his DNA.

Both discoveries allowed Israel Police Commissioner Roni Alsheich to calm the public in Tel Aviv by Tuesday, telling them it was much less likely Melhem was still in the area.

The killer was ultimately tracked to the home of a 76-year-old female relative who is hospitalized on a respirator. She has no idea that her home was used as a murderer’s hideout. The outside wall bears the name “Melhem” painted in blue Hebrew letters, a relative – Ahmed Melhem – told Channel 2 television news on Saturday night.

When Melhem saw the security forces coming to get him on Friday, he opened fire at them from the window of that relative’s home. He then tried to escape.

Security personnel had orders to try and take Melhem alive – if possible.

About 200 meters away, he jumped over a low wall into the yard of a neighbor, according to security officials. He turned and fired at security personnel chasing him – including an officer with a police dog (who was not injured).

That’s when Melhem was shot and killed by police who returned fire.

In response to questions from the television channel, Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan emphasized that accomplices are still being tracked down. “We will arrest everyone who had a role in this,” Erdan affirmed.

One suspect told a judge at a hearing that a friend had reported seeing Melhem in the village, but he had not credited the report.

Ahmed Melhem, however, had a different view of the matter: “Maybe people didn’t want to get into a fight with him. The whole country knew how dangerous he was.”

On Saturday night Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu issued a statement “on behalf of all the citizens of Israel” saying he wanted to thank “Israel Police, ISA, and the police special anti-terrorism unit” for their skill.

“They did their work professionally, methodically, day and night; they focused on the mission and they achieved it. All those who would murder Israelis should know that sooner or later we will find them, inside and outside the borders of the State of Israel. No one is immune. We will find the murderers and their accomplices,” Netanyahu warned.

Suspected Murderer of Rabbi Joseph Raksin, z’l, Arrested in Miami, FL

Thursday, December 10th, 2015

On Chanukah as we celebrate the miracle of both revealed and hidden light, the family of Rabbi Joseph Raksin has merited the miracle of closure: an arrest in the murder of their loved one.

The Miami Jewish community saw that which was hidden become revealed when police arrested a suspect in the murder of Chabad-Lubavitch Rabbi Yosef Raksin of Crown Heights, Brooklyn.

The rabbi was attacked while visiting his granddaughter in the South Florida Jewish community. Hundreds attended his funeral in New York, and the Miami-Dade State Attorney’s office vowed never to give up on his case.

Miami Jewish community members also had posted a $50,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the suspect or suspects who attacked the rabbi.

Now, as his family celebrates the miracles of the Festival of Light, their own closure is becoming a reality with the arrest of 15-year-old Deandre Edwin Charles after a 16-month-long investigation.

The teen allegedly encountered the rabbi as he walked to synagogue on the Sabbath morning of August 9 after a robbery spree, while Charles was age 14.

The rabbi carried no money, in accordance with Jewish customs on the Sabbath; Charles left the scene empty-handed after allegedly shooting Raksin to death.

The teen was cuffed on Wednesday and was indicted by a grand jury on a charge of first-degree murder, which means he will be tried as an adult, 7News reported.

Israeli Court Convicts Jewish Murderers of Arab Teen Mohammed Abu Khdeir

Monday, November 30th, 2015

A panel of three judges in the Jerusalem District Court convicted two of the three Jewish murderers of 16-year-old Mohammed Abu Khdeir of Shuafat on Monday. The Arab teen was abducted as he waited to enter a mosque at 4 am in the Shuafat neighborhood.

Both convicted defendants are minors.

The third defendant, 31-year-old Yosef Chaim Ben-David of Adam, has also confessed to having murdered the Arab teen last summer. He was not convicted by the panel, however, because he was deemed medically unfit to stand trial due to his mental state, even though the judges acknowledged that he had indeed committed the murder.

Ben Yosef and one of the two minors admitted during questioning to beating the Arab teen unconscious and then burning him to death by pouring a flammable liquid on his body and igniting it while he was still alive. The second minor sat in the vehicle during the murder but was involved in the kidnapping and the drive to the Jerusalem Forest where Abu Khdeir was killed.

According to the indictment, the murder was intended as revenge for the abduction and murder of three Jewish teens days earlier in Gush Etzion. Hussein Abu Khdeir, the father of the young victim, told Galei Tzahal Army Radio in an interview on Monday morning that he wanted the court to sentence the killers to life in prison. “I want what is done to Arabs, will also be done to Jews: life sentences, no pardons.”

After the indictments, the Defense Ministry has recognized Mohammed Abu Khdeir as a victim of terror, but the outraged and grieving family rejected the recognition.

At the time, the Defense Ministry had granted the family the same compensation rights as those granted to victims of Arab terrorism. Now the decision must now be ratified by the National Insurance Institute.
