The Arab terrorist who murdered 20-year-old Israeli Air Force Sgt. Almog Shiloni of Modi’in was sentenced to life in prison Wednesday by the Tel Aviv District Court.
Nur al-Din Abu Hashayeh was convicted for the murder a few months ago. Hashayeh was age 18 when he left his home in Shechem to infiltrate into Israel the day before stabbing Shiloni to death.
He told investigators during interrogation that he traveled to the site with the specific goal of killing an Israeli soldier in order to become a shahid, an Islamic martyr. In this way he knew he could earn a generous monthly salary for his family from the Palestinian Authority government and also would gain eternal fame as well. It is likely the killer succeeded in gaining a generous monthly stipend for his family from the Ramallah government, which pays the families of convicted Arab terrorists imprisoned in Israel in accordance with a scale rated to the severity of the attack, the number of victims and length of the prison sentence.
Hashayeh carried out his attack at midday in the HaHaganah train station in south Tel Aviv on November 10, 2014; he used a large kitchen knife to stab the young officer repeatedly and then tried to steal his M-16 military rifle before fleeing the scene.
Shiloni died of his wounds within a few hours. An estimated 1500 people came to escort the soldier to his final resting place.
Hashayeh was caught and then indicted for the murder by Israeli prosecutors the day after the attack, right after the young soldier died.Hana Levi Julian
Two members of the Palestinian Authority security force were reportedly killed Thursday in clashes with Arab fugitives, the Ma’an news agency said.
At least two more were reportedly wounded in the clash, which took place in northern Samaria, in the city of Shechem.
A spokesperson for the PA security forces said a search was launched to track down and arrest the Arabs who wounded and killed the officers.
The circumstances behind the shootout were not made clear, but tensions are rising in Judea and Samaria as local elections are drawing closer.
The Hamas terrorist organization is claiming that Israel is plotting together with the Fatah-led Palestinian Authority government in Ramallah to influence the elections and prevent Hamas from taking over.Hana Levi Julian
It’s interesting how unintentionally our enemies often manage to fit themselves right into interesting phrases from the Torah.
For instance, in this video from the Palestinian Authority, the singer describes the “Palestinians” as a thorn in the throat of Zionism.
Which parallels the pasuk (sentence) in Bamidbar (Numbers) 33:55 where it says, “But if you do not drive out the inhabitants of the land from before you, then those of them whom you let remain shall be as barbs in your eyes and thorns in your sides, and they shall trouble you in the land where you dwell.” Yup.
Singer: “We are not afraid of the enemy – a thorn in the throat of Zionism! Palestinians – We are! We are! The people of Jerusalem – We are! We are! The people of Jenin – We are! We are! … The people of Gaza… The people of Jaffa – We are! We are! The people of Haifa – We are! We are! The people of Lod – We are! We are! The people of Ramle The people of Acre – We are! We are! The people of Nazareth – We are! We are! … We swear in the name of the prisoners In place of one [prisoner], here are ten We have given them [Israelis] a taste of grief We have given them a taste of grief – a thorn in the throat of Zionism!” [Official PA TV, July 30 and Aug. 6, 2016]

Judea and Samaria (TPS) – Israeli security forces conducted several operations in Palestinian Authority towns on Monday night, arresting at least ten terror suspects and seizing weapons, ammunition, money, and vehicles that were all suspected to have been used or had been allocated to be used for terror purposes.
The forces carried out an operation in the Mount Hebron village of Dura in support of efforts to arrest those involved in the shooting attack on Route 60 that killed Rabbi Michael Mark on July 1.
After conducting two waves of arrests over the past several days, they raided the house that had sheltered the shooter, Mohammed Jabarah al-Faqih, after the terror attack and they arrested a relative of his for aiding him. Additionally, Israeli army and police forces seized a car that was purchased by the terrorist with the alleged intention of using it for another attack.
IDF troops in Hizme confiscated funds that it claims were meant to be used by the Hamas terror organization. The troops also arrested the individual who had the money in his possession.
Security forces using police intelligence discovered a Kalashnikov rifle and ammunition in the village of Urqub Jamla and arrested the individual hiding them. They also seized two vehicles in the nearby village of Sa’ir that were used to carry out terror attacks as well.
Furthermore, Palestinian Authority Arab rioters threw rocks at Israeli buses on the way to Joseph’s Tomb in Nablus. A total of 24 buses transported Jews to the holy site overnight. The rioters also rolled burning tires towards the buses, but there were no casualties.
Seven terror suspects were arrested overnight in other routine IDF activity throughout Judea and Samaria. Three of them are members of Hamas, while the rest are suspected of participating in violent riots directed at Israeli civilians and security forces. They were taken for questioning.TPS / Tazpit News Agency
It’s the Hatfields and the McCoys, Islam style.
Ramadan is not a very peaceful holiday for Muslim Arabs. They’re hungry from not eating all day, they’re tired from not sleeping all night, and they can’t even take a drink of alcohol to relax. That makes for some very irritated Jihadists.
On Wednesday night, Two Palestinian security officers were killed in gun battles in Shechem. The two showed up after a group of Arabs began shooting at the home of a third security officer. The PA officers were killed when the shooters redirected their fire. The shooters were arrested.
Three more PA Arabs were killed in a clan fight in Jenin. 14 Arabs were injured in that fight. Seven of them seriously.
A number of homes were also burnt down too in the process.
