Former Human Shield: Palestinians Perfected Propaganda War [video]

Sunday, August 3rd, 2014

A former 10-year-old Lebanese girl used as a human shield by Hezbollah terrorists in Lebanon told Fox News “Kelly File” last week, “The Palestinians have perfected using children to win the world’s sympathy, and this goes back 30 years. The Palestinians have perfected the propaganda war.”

“My mother begged the Palestinian leader who used to park their rocket launchers in front of our homes, launch Israel fully knowing that when Israel retaliates, we will make the evening news,” she told Kelly File.

Gabriel added, “They would move their rocket launcher from home to home, fire one rocket and move away. When Israel retaliated,…guess what was on Lebanese television that night? People wounded because of Israel, and Lebanon television was saying look how horrible Israelis are. They are killing children.

“The Palestinians…cannot win militarily against Israel so they use their own children as disposable collateral in order to win the war of public opinion against Israel.”

Gabriel, an American journalist and activist, was born as Nour Saman in Lebanon. She has said that her life was saved by Israeli soldiers in the Litani maneuver in 1978, when she had been warned by someone of an Islamic attack on Christians.

Her constant condemnation of Islam has made her bait for criticism not only by Muslims but also by The New York Times. In an article by Deborah Solomon in 2008 its magazine, she called Gabriel a “radical Islamophobe,” a label that was protested by 250 people.

In 2007, she told Christians United for Israel annual conference, “The difference, my friends, between Israel and the Arab world is the difference between civilization and barbarism. It’s the difference between good and evil… They have no soul, they are dead set on killing and destruction. And in the name of something they call ‘Allah’, which is very different from the God we believe….”

Arab Mourners ‘Celebrate’ Funeral with Riots instead of Psalms

Friday, July 4th, 2014

Jerusalem Arabs rioted and hurled everything except the kitchen sink at Jerusalem police Friday during the funeral of 16-year-old Mohammed Abu Khudair, who was kidnapped and killed in the pre-dawn hours on Wednesday.

The Arab world, encouraged by international and even some Israeli media, have jumped on the murder as Israeli revenge for the kidnapping and murder of three Israeli teenagers three weeks ago. There are no clear signs who kidnapped and killed the Arab boy, and eyewitness accounts and video footage of the scene of the abduction do not offer clear evidence whether Jews or Arabs carried out the crime and if there were nationalistic motives.

Virtually every media source has refrained from mentioning the ongoing rumors that the boy was a homosexual, which is enough of an “offense’ to be met by death in many Muslim circles.

Friday’s violence, which spread to the Temple Mount, was broadcast throughout the world, but no one has contrasted it with the Jewish reaction to the kidnapping and murders of the three yeshiva students buried earlier this week.

Suha Khudair, mother of the Arab victim said at the funeral, “I hope your death brings victory to Palestine,” while mourners chanted, “With our souls and our blood we will redeem you, martyr.” His body was draped with a Palestinian Authority flag and got across the message that Jerusalem Arabs are not part of Israel.

However, all polls show that most Jerusalem Arabs hold Israeli identity cards, enjoy all the benefits from the city of Jerusalem and from the country that Jews enjoy, and do not want lose their rights and become subjects of a would-be Palestinian Authority country.

That view is summed up in an explanation by one Jerusalem rioter to an Israeli television reporter, who asked why he was wearing a mask.

The rioters said he is afraid of losing his job and his social security benefits. Friday’s clashes, complete with the usual round of rock-throwing and firebombs by Arabs and tear gas and rubber bullets by police, starkly contrasts with the actions by Jews after the reports of the abduction of Eyal Yifrah, Gilad Shaer and Naftali Fraenkel.

Their parent united Israel in prayers for their safe return, and even after their sons’ bodies were found, the families eulogized the children and did not even hint at revenge. Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon vowed that the killers will be found and tried for their crime, but there was not even a hint of casting all Arabs as terrorists.

The funeral of Khudair gave his family an opportunity to blame “settlers” for his murder even though there is no evidence. If God forbid Jews did kidnap and kill him, there will be a repeat media performance of the reaction to the assassination of then-Prime Minister Yitzchak Rabin, when the entire national religious community was blamed for the murder.

Minutes after the assassination, media already were reporting that the murderer, Yigal Amir, was a “settler.” After the damage had been done, it turns out his home was in metropolitan Tel Aviv.

Khudair’s father told TIME magazine Friday,  “The settlers killed my son, they kidnapped him and killed him,”

TIME added, “He reached for his Samsung smartphone, tapped the screen and pulled up a photo of two young men on a sidewalk. He said the image had been taken from a surveillance camera at a candy store around the corner that recorded the abduction. ‘These are the ones who kidnapped my son,’ he said.’”

When asked to describe them, he admitted that they did not wear Kippot, did not wear Tzizit, and did not have beards. His only explanation as to why they are settlers is because they drove to western Jerusalem (the Jerusalem Forest).

The report then jumped to the riots, without any mention that the images of the kidnappers is so blurred that it is impossible to identify them.

Arabs Riot in Northern, Eastern Jerusalem

Wednesday, July 2nd, 2014

An undercover police officer narrowly escaped death Wednesday as an Arab mob tried to lynch him in the Shuafat refugee camp in northern Jerusalem.


The officer was discovered in the heat of Arab riots following the murder of an Arab teenager, Muhammad Abu Khdeir,  overnight between Tuesday and Wednesday. Abu Khdeir’s charred body was found in the Jerusalem forest at about 5:00 a.m., about an hour after police received a call from his parents reporting him missing. The boy, a 17 year old resident of Shuafat, was allegedly kidnapped from nearby Beit Hanina.

The discovery sparked riots by Arabs in northern Jerusalem Arab neighborhoods such as Shuafat and Beit Hanina, who claimed the murderers were Jews avenging the murders of Eyal Yifrah, Gil-Ad Sha’ar and Naftali Fraenkel.

Israeli leaders, including Minister Uri Ariel (Jewish Home) and Yesha Council spokesman Dani Dayan, condemned the murder immediately.  “I vigorously condemn barbaric murder of boy in #Jerusalem. I am confident security forces will bring perpetrators to justice,” Tweeted Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat.

Large Scale Riots

Throughout Wednesday morning, residents clashed with police and security forces in Arab-majority neighborhoods around the city.  Light Rail service in the area was suspended as rioters hurled rocks and rolled burning tires at police. At least one person injured in the melee and taken to the hospital.

In the Old City Arab worshipers stoned security forces on the Temple Mount and threw rocks over the wall at the Western Wall plaza below. In response to the violence police closed the Mount to Jewish visitors, while leaving it open to the Muslims responsible for the violence.

Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld confirmed that no arrests have been made as a result of the clashes, but added that police would likely detain participants in the riots “soon. “It is likely there will be (arrests), following review of CCTV footage of the incident,” Rosenfeld told The Jewish Press. 

Rosenfeld added that the Temple Mount area has since quieted down, although riots are continuing in the Beit Hanina neighborhood.

Police are continuing their investigation of the circumstances that led to the murder of the young Arab teen, who sources requesting anonymity said may have been killed in a blood feud between two rival clans.

Jewish Kindergarten Children Attacked in Antwerp

Tuesday, June 17th, 2014

Young Jewish kindergarten children traveling on the bus Sunday afternoon from the Antwerp Hayder school on their bus were attacked Sunday by a gang of Muslim teenagers, according to Jewish media in Belgium.

According to a security source quoted by the Coordination Forum for Countering Antisemitism (CFCA), the children were returning from a swimming pool at the time of the attack. The driver stopped the bus and realized that the Muslim attackers were youths who lived near the swimming pool.

The gang surrounded the bus and started hurling rocks at the vehicle and its small passengers, according to the report. None of the children, about five years old and members of the Orthodox Jewish community, were physically injured in the attack.

Police opened an investigation after the teacher filed a complaint. Security personnel arrived at the scene and collected surveillance footage from the area in order to identify the attackers. No arrests have been made thus far.

Just a few weeks ago, four people were killed in a terrorist attack on the Jewish Museum in Brussels. Belgian officials have yet to decide if they will assist the museum with upgraded security for the facility in the wake of the attack.

Arab Rioters Take Over Temple Mount on Jerusalem Day (+Video)

Wednesday, May 28th, 2014

Arab rioters succeeded in violently shutting down the Temple Mount this Jerusalem Day to everyone except Muslims.

One police officer has been injured so far by a rock hurled by a rioter as security personnel battle Palestinian Authority Arabs on the Temple Mount in the first hours of the morning on Wednesday.

Masked Arab youths have been hurling stones and firebombs (Molotov cocktails) since the start of the morning, once again effectively preventing Jews and anyone other than Muslims from reaching the site. Their handy weapons are stored in piled caches in and around the Al Aqsa mosque, one of two Muslim houses of worship located on the Temple Mount.

The Arab rioters are taken to calling themselves “Almoravids”, which were an early version of Muslim knights.

While only 250 Israelis managed to ascend to the Mount prior to the attack, four times that many — 1,000 foreign tourists — succeeded in reaching the site before police closed it down to everyone except Muslim ‘worshipers.’

Jews are routinely arrested on the site simply for moving their lips, in what might be construed as a prayer. The Waqf Islamic Religious Authority, which rules the site, forbids Jewish religious activity on the Temple Mount. It is part of the Western Wall complex and believed to be the location of the “holy of holies” in the ancient Jewish Holy Temple of Jerusalem, Judaism’s most sacred site.

Once safely shut down, police moved forward to take control the Temple Mount plaza area, according to Walla! The rioters have since retreated and are currently within the mosque, according to a local source, who said they are continuing to hurl rocks and firebombs at security personnel.

Police officers are using riot control methods in an attempt to disperse the mob.

Today marks the 47th anniversary of the liberation of the 3,000-year-old Jewish capital of Israel, the Old City of Jerusalem, from Jordanian occupation in the 1967 Six Day War. Jerusalem Day celebrates the unification of the holy city and its restoration as the healed capital of the Jewish State.

“Moderate” Muslims Silent on Brussels Attack

Sunday, May 25th, 2014

“Moderate” Islamic groups have remained silent on the murder of four people at the Brussels Jewish Museum on Saturday.

In contrast to Jewish groups, which have roundly denounced price tag vandalism in response to nearly every incident, as of this writing not one major Islamic organization in Europe, North America, Australia or the Middle East has condemned the yesterday’s murders in Brussels.

Non-Jewish leaders in Belgium spoke out immediately about the attack.  Prime Minister Elio Di Rupo said, “Our country and all Belgians, regardless of their language, their origin or their beliefs, are united together to face this despicable attack on a Jewish cultural center.”

The country’s Interior Minister, Joelle Milquet, spoke out immediately upon hearing about the attack. Belgium would  “apply to a maximum level of protection to Jewish sites,” he said.

While many left-wing activists, including the Haaretz daily, cautioned that “it is too early to jump to conclusions aver the identity of the shooter in Saturday’s terror attack,” even the left-wing mouthpiece was forced to conclude that “for now, the scenario of radical Muslim attackers… is most likely.”

But that does not seem to have moved “moderates” like Feisal Abdul Rauf, the author of “What’s Right With Islam” and spiritual leader of The Cordoba Initiative who gained notoriety by trying to build an Islamic prayer centre on the ruins of the World Trade Center. Rauf’s website fetters statements about violence at the Boston Marathon and condemning the burning of Christian homes in Pakistan. But the murder of Jews by Muslims appears to be off the Cordoba radar.

Same could be said for the Islamic Council of Victoria (Australia), despite the fact that leaders of that group have protested their depiction as radical terror sympathisers for many years. Other “moderate” groups that have yet to condemn the shooting include the Federation of Islamic Organisations in Europe, Native European Muslims Assembly, the Islamic Center of Southern California, the Organization of the Islamic Conference

Likud, Labor MK s Unite to Submit Temple Mount Prayer Bill

Monday, May 19th, 2014

Two Knesset members from separate ends of the political spectrum plan to submit a bill allowing Jews to pray on the Temple Mount in the Old City of Jerusalem.

Likud MK Miri Regev and Labor MK Hilik Bar say they will unite to advance the measure, but were mum on when. “There is no reason that Jews should not be allowed to pray in the holiest site in the world,” Regev said, according a report this weekend by Ynet.

The bill is intended to promote co-existence, added Bar. “I insisted the authority of the Muslim Waqf not be harmed, but Muslims must understand that we also have a right to pray there. I see in these holy sites the cradle of our existence. If someone on the left has complaints against Jewish prayer on the Temple Mount, they will have a hard time claiming that other ethnic groups suffer discrimination,” he added.

Jews are not allowed to even move their lips when touring the site, considered the holiest place on earth in Judaism.

Many times Muslims in the area simply accuse Jews of “praying” and police immediately force the “suspect” into custody and off the grounds, fearing violent reactions by Arabs if they don’t.  By contrast, Muslim children run freely throughout the plaza area, even playing soccer around the site.

The fiercest verbal provocations by Arabs are generally met by stony silence by Israeli police when accompanying Jewish tour groups, and usually also by hurrying their charges away. Sometimes closure of the site to anyone other than Muslims follows as well — even if the site has just opened and it is the eve of a Jewish holiday.

The Al Aqsa mosque located on the Mount has become a hotspot for fiery sermons each Friday that whip worshipers into a frenzy of hatred against the State of Israel. The site has also been at the center of negotiations between Israel and the Palestinian Authority. The PA has insisted the Old City — including all Jewish holy sites — must be handed over to be part of a capital for its hoped-for independent state.

Arab rioters carefully store piles of rocks, bottles and other handy missiles in the mosque that they can hurl at Jews – or police — when “protesting” after prayers have ended. Such incidents occur often prior to Jewish holidays, and became the opening salvo to the second intifada in the year 2000. In response, police simply close the Mount to Muslim men under age 50 and limit entry to those bearing Israeli identity cards. Any Muslim woman can enter.

“I firmly believe that each event of Muslim unrest on the Mount should lead to its closure to Arabs,” Regev said. “The prime minister is not the only one to decide on the issue, and if the proposal does not pass I will turn to the High Court of Justice in a public petition until Jews are allowed to pray with tallit (prayer shawl) and tefillin on the Temple Mount,” she said.

According to the language of the bill as it is currently written, “no demonstration of protest or incitement that disturbs the peace will be tolerated.” Violators will be fined,” Ynet reported.

Deputy Religious Affairs Minister Rabbi Eli Ben Dahan (Bayit Yehudi) said after Passover the ministry was in the process of creating new regulations to allow Jewish prayer on the Temple Mount.
