Police Stabbed in Jerusalem at Ammunition Hill and Lion’s Gate

Monday, October 12th, 2015

A Border Guard Police officer was stabbed by an 18-year-old female terrorist Monday afternoon in the Ammunition Hill section of Jerusalem near Ramat Eshkol.

The Arab teen terrorist was shot by police after she stabbed her victim. She first caught the notice of an officer who ordered her to stop while striding along on Rehov Bar Lev. Instead, she hurried ahead and then turned and stabbed the officer.

Wounded, the police officer nevertheless managed to pull out his gun and shoot his attacker.

The terrorist was later taken to a local hospital in fair condition.

A similar attack took place earlier in the day near the Lion’s Gate entrance to the Old City of Jerusalem.

A Palestinian Arab terrorist walked up to a Border Guard Police officer and stabbed him in the chest – but the knife struck the officer’s bullet-proof vest, which prevented any wound.

Security personnel immediately shot and killed the attacker, who has been identified as 18-year-old Mustafa Hatib, a resident of the Jerusalem neighborhood of Jabel Mukabar.

“I told him, ‘Come here – I want to check you,’ and as we came closer to him, I had my hand on my gun,” said one of the officers.

“I told him again, and he started running towards me and managed to stab one of the officers’ vests. We approached him while firing, until he fell.”

“That’s how it’s done,” said the Jerusalem district commander approvingly. “Anyone who attempts to stab a police officer or innocent civilian, that’s the mission.

“Well done.”

Monday, October 12th, 2015

A policeman killed an Arab terrorist who tried to murder a Border Police guard at the Lion’s gate in the Old City of Jerusalem shortly after 9 a.m. Monday.

The terrorist was approaching Border Police with his hand in his pocket. The guards told him to stop and show his hands, and the terrorist then stabbed one of the Border Policeman.

The guard’s protective vest saved him from injuries or death.

Police closed the Temple Mount following the attack.

The video below shows the same scenario that occurred on Saturday (not today). Around 00:25, officers are seen asking the terrorist for his identification card before he stabbed one of them and then was shot dead.

Policeman in Life-Threatening Condition after Stabbing by Jerusalem Arab

Saturday, October 10th, 2015

One police officer is in life-threatening condition in Jerusalem’s Shaarei Tzedek Hospital after having been stabbed by an Arab terrorist near Damascus Gate in the Old City. The second officer suffered light to moderate wounds. A third officer was wounded in the crossfire that killed the terrorist.

Doctors said they have stabilized the policeman’s condition but that his life is out of danger.

He and two other riot-control policemen were stabbed Saturday afternoon in the Old City after the terrorist handed over to the policeman his identification card. Other officers shot and killed the terrorist, but a stray bullet lightly wounded another officer.

The attack occurred several hours after police officers shot and killed another Arab teenage terrorist who had stabbed two Hareidi Jews near Damascus Gate, both of them in their 60s. They suffered light to moderate wounds.

70 Jewish Families Clinging to Old City’s Muslim Quarter amid Raging Violence

Wednesday, October 7th, 2015

(JNi.media) Israeli Aharon Bennett (Benita) was murdered only a few steps from the gate of the Wittenberg compound in the Muslim Quarter of the Old City of Jerusalem on Saturday, and Rabbi Nehemiah Lavi, a resident of the Jewish enclave who heard the screams and came downstairs to help was murdered, too. On Wednesday morning there was another murderous attack nearby — an Arab female stabbed a 36-year-old Jewish man at the Lions’ Gate, but he managed to cock his gun and shoot her, possibly fatally.

Walla’s Moshe Steinmetz visited the Jewish compound in the Muslim Quarter on Tuesday, and found a group of some 20 youths sitting outside the safety of the gate, right on HaGai Street, the scene of Saturday’s murders, playing a guitar with a mobile karaoke amplifier.

Some 70 Jewish families live outside the Jewish Quarter in the Old City, mostly in the Muslim quarter.

Recently, this Jewish settlement has begun to spread into the Christian Quarter as well. “The windows up here, this is my home,” pointed Rachel Zuberi, 43, a 23-year resident of the compound and the mother of seven. “Here is the door of the Lavi family,” she continued sadly. On Saturday, she heard the murder stabbing scene under her window. “I was here during those rough moments with Neta, when her husband passed away. I discovered what a neighbor she is, and near what great people I live. I draw strength from that.”

With a population of 22,000 in an area of 76 acres, the Muslim Quarter is the largest of the four quarters of the old, walled city of Jerusalem, located in its northeastern part. It extends from the Lions’ Gate in the east, along the northern wall of the Temple Mount in the south, to the Damascus Gate—Western Wall route in the west. The Via Dolorosa starts in the Muslim quarter. The Muslim Quarter hosted a mixed population of Jews, Muslims and Christians until the 1929 Arab riots. Jewish landmarks in the Muslim Quarter include the Kotel Katan or Little Western Wall, and the Western Wall Tunnels, which run below the neighborhood along the Western Wall. There are many Roman and Crusader remains in the quarter.

Despite the difficult security situation, which has become increasingly more dangerous in recent weeks, Zuberi feels that she is living “in the best place there is.” Although she lives in the midst of many Arabs, she is certain: “We’re very happy here. It’s uplifting, magical and addictive. You cannot leave here. This is the place where our forefathers walked, the closest place to the Temple. It is a spiritual connection.”

She notes that where Muslims now reside used to be a Jewish neighborhood, and what she and her friends are trying to do is to “restore the old glory.” She says: “You walk down the street here and see homes whose Jewish mezuzas-doorposts were torn off. We are not invaders here, we’re not a delusional bunch choosing to locate in a dangerous place.”

The apartments in the compound, as well as throughout the quarter, belong to the “Ateret Cohanim” yeshiva, which and leases them to Jewish tenants, some for as little as $250 a month—but the demand is very great and currently there are no vacancies. “There are dozens of families who want to get in right away,” Rabbi Yossi Cohen, one of the first settlers in the Muslim Quarter 36 years ago, told Walla.

Birkhi Zarbib, 23, has lived in the compound with her brand-new husband since their wedding eight months ago. From her apartment window she sees the Temple Mount. She is determined: “We believe we have to settle the Land of Israel and to show Jewish presence. Of course we shouldn’t do it with pressure or nerves, but quietly and calmly, but we need to show that it all belongs to us. Since Rosh Hashanah, the Arabs have begun to rebel, which is why we’re here.” When asked if recent events have increased her fears, she replied that “during hot situations we are closely accompanied by police and soldiers 24 hours a day. It is a privilege to live here, and there is no fear. It is important for us that everyone will come and see that we’re having a normal life here.”


UPDATE: Arab Video Encourages Murder of Jews in Old City

Wednesday, October 7th, 2015

A video uploaded to YouTube* by a Hamas account on Oct. 6 glorifies and encourages murdering Jews in the Old City of Jerusalem.

The video shows what purports to be a Palestinian Arab man in his twenties. The Arab is shown wearing a Fatah-style kefiyah. He is sitting in an alleyway of what looks like the Old City of Jerusalem, and he is watching a video on his cellphone.  Young Arab boys play ball in the alley.

After a few seconds, two men dressed up as religious Jews appear in the alleyway. One is wearing a black hat and long frock coat, the other is wearing a kippah and a tallis.

2 Jews enter alleyway

The “Jew” with the tallit knocks over a small boy and then kicks him. Then the “Jew” with the black hat pushes one of the Arab kids, knocking him over. The two “Jews” then grin at each other as they continue up the alleyway, where they walk past the Arab young man.

The video closes in on the Arab’s face. He is seething.


The video then seems to back up and the two Jews are again walking down the alleyway. This time the Arab youth is standing on the side of the alley, holding a sharp knife. The Arab springs forward, brutally stabbing the “Jewish” black hatted man, who falls to the ground, dead.

Then the Arab runs down the alley after the “Jew” in the tallit, who is running away. But not fast enough.

The Arab catches the second Jew. The camera zooms in on the knife, and catches the moment of impact of the knife into the man’s neck. Blood gushes out.

The second Jew crumples to the ground.

The video ends with what looks like blood hitting the camera lens. A slogan in Arabic, calling for an intifada, and #freedom of al-Aksa, flashes across the screen.

The only truly surprising thing about the video is that it was uploaded by a Hamas account, but the Arab terrorist is wearing a Fatah kefiya and it focuses on the Old City, which is not typically thought of as the turf of Hamas.

UPDATE: The video was removed from YouTube. That is good news. But it was posted to other social media and it received wide distribution before it was removed from YouTube. You can see what was in the video because the JewishPress.com captured most of it in screen captures and included it here for people to see the venom and the violence pouring out of the people who are supposed to be Israel’s peace partners.

Significantly, the video was posted after various Arab leaders, including Jordanian and Egyptian leadership, told the Palestinian Authority’s Mahmoud Abbas that he had to clamp down on the murderous incitement amongst the Palestinian Arabs. It was also posted after Abbas made public statements that he was doing so.

This is what appears where the video was previously:

YT removed

Not sure why YouTube has “sorry about that” in the message, but at least this particular incitement has been removed.
