Khaled Abu Toameh: PA Police Break Legs of Arab Children

Sunday, August 7th, 2016

Israeli Arab Award winning journalist, lecturer and documentary filmmaker Khaled Abu Toameh on Saturday tweeted that “Palestinian policemen broke arms and legs of children during protest against power cuts in Yamoun, Jenin.”

Abu Toameh is a staunch defender of freedom of speech and has criticized the Palestinian Authority for arresting and harassing Palestinian journalists in the West Bank.

In the Durban Review Conference, Abu Toameh criticized Israeli Arab Knesset members for supporting extremism and calling Israel a “state of apartheid” rather than fighting for the rights of Arab citizens of Israel.

Abu Toameh says he is routinely subject to condemnations, and is often threatened. He notes, however, that more threats are coming from outside the Middle East than from within the Palestinian Authority, and that those who threaten him “roundly acknowledge” that he is telling the truth and don’t question his reporting, but merely want him to “shut up.”

Analysis: Pro-Terrorist PA Senior Compares IDF Actions to ISIS Terrorism

Sunday, July 31st, 2016

Shortly after Israeli forces last week eliminated Muhammad al-Faqih, who had murdered Rabbi Miki Mark ZL in a drive by shooting, top Palestinian peace negotiator Saeb Erekat issued an announcement condemning the killing of the terrorist, calling it a crime. Hamas has also praised the same terrorist as “Hero of the attack in Otniel.” It should be noted that locals from al-Faqih’s hiding place, Surif village, have blamed the PA security service of informing on the murderer to their Israeli counterparts. Perhaps this explains the PA high official’s protesting too much those actions by Israel.

It also means that come January 17, 2017, the pro-PA Obama Administration will make room for a new tenant in the White House, and at least in case said tenant sports an orange pompadour and employs the word “huge” as both adjective and verb—the PA’s path to Washington would be all but blocked. And so the boys from Ramallah will be using the coming few months to squeeze as much as they can in anti-Israeli gestures from the Obama team. That, too, will necessarily be limited to the period after November 8, up until which Democratic criticism of Israel could cost candidate Clinton the election.

This past week has seen a general increase in the energy and zeal of the PA in pursuing a sharply anti-Israeli line of attack under the guise of participating in the peace efforts, the French peace efforts to be precise. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has absolutely rejected the French initiative last April, insisting that the “best way to resolve the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians is through direct, bilateral negotiations.” And so, naturally, the PA brass migrated to Paris for the Vacance months, seeking peace on the banks of the Seine with French and US diplomats.

Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas arrived in Paris on Saturday to meet with Secretary of State John Kerry and French Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault, to devise new ways to push the French-invented (imagined?) peace process forward.

Last Thursday, State Department Spokesman John Kirby said Kerry’s meeting with Abbas would be devoted to discussing the “prospects towards helping us create conditions for a two-state solution,” because, as he put it, “there is a possibility there could be additional bilateral meetings while we’re in Paris.” The fact that all these multi-lateral gymnastics are being planned and conducted without the only truly decisive power in the saga was not mentioned.

In fact, in the same spirit of talking strictly to themselves, the French Foreign Ministry issued a statement saying Abbas and Ayrault will meet by the end of the year to work on implementing the multilateral French peace initiative, which is going to feature yet another international summit on the Isralil-Palestinian conflict — so at least 50% of the sides in the conflict would be there.

Meanwhile, Erekat has raised the flame under his attacks on Israel for its audacious killing of Arab terrorists, possibly looking to link in the Europeans’ minds the horror Arab terrorists are inflicting on their civilian population with the IDF and Israel police efforts to enforce law and order in Israel’s cities and on the highways.

“Those who murder children in Europe in the name of religion are no different from those who murder children on Palestinian land,” Erekat told the press on Saturday. Because, as we all know, the slaughtered children in Europe have all taken up knives and Molotov cocktails to attack lone wolf ISIS terrorists.

Both Erekat and Abbas have been demanding that Secretary Kerry furnish them with a timetable for the re-launching of the peace talks, as well as a timetable for the implementation of the one-sided, pro-Palestinian agreements they view as the only legitimate outcome of such talks. “We need a timetable for restarting negotiations, a timetable for implementing agreements, and an international framework to oversee any future agreements,” Erekat insisted.


Israeli Security Captures Shechem Cell of Arms Manufacturers and Dealers that Includes PA Officers

Monday, July 11th, 2016

A collaborative effort of the Shabak, IDF special forces unit Duvdevan and Israel Samaria police on Sunday night captured a cell of manufacturers and dealers of improvised weapons in Oreef Village near Shechem. The operation netted various types of improvised weapons, and four Lathes that were used to make the weapons.

The home-made weapons made in the Oreef facility were being sold in other parts of Judea and Samaria, and included Carlo (a simplified version of the Swedish Carl Gustav submachine-gun), the originally US-made M-16 rifles, and Uzis.

Security forces believe the four cell members, ages 24 to 46, collaborated with Israeli weapons dealers. Two of the arrested cell members, Assam Najam Sharif Safadi, 39, and Ali Najah Sharif Safadi, 41, are also members of the Palestinian Authority Intelligence Services.

Al Monitor columnist Shlomi Eldar cited a PA Arab source who told him, “You don’t need a lot of imagination, professional skill or resources to manufacture the Carlo. All you need is a piece of pipe. With a lathe, you can convert it into the barrel, chamber and firing pin of a rifle.”

There are two prototypes of the Carlo, one with a short barrel, the other with a long barrel, selling for between $770 and $4,400, depending on the reputation of the gun maker. Eldar cited another Arab source who told him that “a few hundred of these rifles are making the rounds in the territories,” and “can be found in quite a few homes, mainly for self-defense, but also just to boost people’s egos. In our society, if you don’t have a gun, you don’t count, and that’s especially true in the refugee camps. Even an old, unreliable Carlo is better than nothing.”

Plainclothed Palestinian Authority Police Operating in Israel’s Area C

Sunday, July 10th, 2016

A Palestinian Authority newspaper, Donia Al-Watan,, reports that undercover PA police have begun operating in Area C in Judea and Samaria. The article reports they will now wear civilian clothing when operating in Area C.

According to the Oslo Accords, Area C is supposed to be under exclusive Israeli control and security. PA police are not allowed to operate there in any capacity according to the signed agreeements.

The Palestinian Authority decided they need to clean up the illegal weapons in the PA, after PA civilians opened fire on PA policemen and others in multiple shooting incidents and clan wars during Ramadan last month. The crackdown order came from PA president Mahmoud Abbas.

So far, four PA residents were arrested by PA Police in connection to the shooting incident in Shechem (Nablus) which left 2 PA policemen dead. Two of those arrested were in Area C at the time of their arrest.

In particular the PA police will focus there search for weapons in Shechem, Jenin and Hebron.

EXCLUSIVE: Eyewitness Reveals More Details Surrounding the Murder of 13-Year-Old Israeli-American Girl

Thursday, July 7th, 2016

[First Published in Western Journalism.]

While the knife jihad in Israel continues, new details emerged about what exactly happened last week Wednesday when 13-year-old Israeli-American Hallel Yaffa Ariel was slaughtered by a 19-year-old Palestinian Authority Arab terrorist in the town of Kiryat Arba near Hebron in Israel.

A source in the security forces of Kiryat Arba who wishes to remain anonymous told Western Journalism what happened in the house where the girl was sleeping, exhausted after a dance recital in Jerusalem the night before.

The horrific terrorist act that rocked Israeli society began when an alarm about a breach in the security fence was sent to members of the rapid response security team.

One of the security guards who responded to the alarm originally thought that the alarm was caused by youths who exit the town via the fence, but when he arrived in the area he noticed suspicious sounds coming out of the house of the Ariel family.

At that moment a second member of the security team arrived, and the guards decided to call Amichai, Hallel’s father, who is also a member of the local civilian rapid response security team. He confirmed that his daughter was at home.

A short while later, the father of the girl arrived to open the front door of the house, followed by one of the security guards. He immediately went to the girl’s room to check if everything was OK. When he opened the door, he saw his daughter bleeding from multiple stab wounds. Ariel called out Hallel’s name, but she didn’t respond. He then tried to resuscitate her but soon realized that his daughter had died. He then collapsed in shock.

At the same time, one of the other security guards noticed from his position in the corridor a moving shadow behind a closet in the room. He understood that the terrorist was still there and was trying to hide behind the closet.

He noticed that the terrorist, Mohammad Tra’ayra from the village Bani Na’im near Hebron, was in the possession of a very large knife that looked like a sword. The guard decided to neutralize Tra’ayra, shooting him two times in the back.

Tra’ayra collapsed, but that didn’t prevent him from stabbing the second security guard, who also was hit in his head by a ricocheting bullet. His colleague saved his life by shooting the terrorist in the head.

The wounded security guard lost an eye but the bullet miraculously didn’t reach his brain.

All this happened in the span of a few seconds, the source told Western Journalism.

He said that the girl had eight stab wounds in her upper body and that the terrorist also stabbed Hallel in her throat.

At Hallel’s funeral, her dance instructor called the girl  “a princess in white with a penetrating gaze and a stormy silence about her.”

“Yesterday, like a white bird, you danced the dance of your life,” Esther Marom said, referring to Hallel’s dance performance in Jerusalem the night before the horrific terrorist act.

Hallel’s mother, Rina Ariel, said at the funeral, “God, Father, how do you give a eulogy for a 13-and-a-half-year-old girl? I had the merit of giving birth to you and from that moment on my life was filled with light. For 13-and-a-half years you gave her to me for safekeeping, and now I give her back to you. But Father, there’s no more room up there in heaven, the people of Kiryat Arba have already filled it.”

She also had something to say to the mother of Mohammad Tra’ayra.

“I want to address the mother of the terrorist who did this. I teach my children to love and you’ve have educated yours to hate,” Hallel’s mother said.

Later Rina Ariel stunned the thousands of Israelis who came to her home in Kiryat Arba to comfort the family. Instead, she comforted her fellow Israelis.

She told them to be strong and that by living in Kiryat Arba (the place where Abraham once lived, according to the Bible) Israelis show the Palestinian Authority Arabs that they will win. By living in places the Arabs claim as their sole property, Jews pave the way to the rebuilding of the Temple (Har HaBayit), she told her sobbing visitors before eulogizing her daughter.

The Palestinian Authority, meanwhile, has yet to condemn the ruthless murder of Hallel Yaffa Ariel.

PA President Mahmoud Abbas made no official statement after the attack and reportedly refused to answer telephone calls from foreign leaders who wanted to urge him to condemn the murder. He also ordered Palestinian Authority media not to report on the brutal attack.

Livni to British Police: ‘Absurd Arrest Warrants Have to Stop’

Sunday, July 3rd, 2016

Zionist Union leader Tzipi Livni has come out with guns blazing following an attempt by British police to present her with an arrest warrant and summon her for questioning over suspected “war crimes” committed in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead in 2009.

“What I have to say to British police I will say in every place: Israel will continue to fight terror and the absurdity of arrest warrants has to stop,” the Israeli Knesset member tweeted in response to the incident, which took place this weekend during her attendance at a Haaretz Israel conference held in the UK.

Livni, who was serving as Israel’s foreign minister during Operation Cast Lead, has also served as a justice minister.

The Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), Palestinian Authority (PA) and pro-PA NGO groups have been waging international lawfare campaigns against Israel for more than a decade by filing criminal complaints via local the courts against senior Israeli officials and military personnel whenever they travel abroad.

The main NGOs behind the campaigns in the UK and beyond — including at the International Criminal Court at The Hague, are the Palestinian Center for Human Rights (PCHR), Al Haq and Al Mezan, according to the NGO Monitor. All are funded by European governments.

Last year the legal codes were revised in Britain to prevent such tactics, but this weekend’s incident highlighted loopholes in the legislation.

At least Livni did not lose her sense of humor over the matter, tweeting her take on a recent anti-Israel comment by British Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn:

The summons against Livni was ultimately cancelled after intervention by the Israeli Embassy in London and action by senior officials in the ministries of foreign affairs and justice, which required granting Livni diplomatic immunity.

It has become particularly enticing for these bodies to use the European Union nations for this purpose, since the EU has been especially supportive of the PA activities.

The European Union has financially supported and even participated in illegal PA construction in Area C territories where under the internationally-recognized Oslo Accords, where Israel is supposed to have full legal, administrative and security control.

PA and Fatah Quick to Honor Murderer who Killed 13-year-old Girl in Her Sleep

Thursday, June 30th, 2016
{Originally posted to the Palestinian Media Watch website}
This morning, a 17-year-old Palestinian terrorist stabbed and murdered a 13-year-old Israeli girl, Hallel Yaffa Ariel, while she slept in her bed. The Palestinian terrorist Muhammad Taraireh, who entered the girl’s home in Kiryat Arba near Hebron, also injured an Israeli security official before he was shot and killed.
Fatah’s official Facebook page immediately posted his picture, declaring him a Martyr – “Shahid,” the highest honor achievable in Islam according to the Palestinian Authority.
WAFA, the official PA news agency, likewise honored the terrorist, referring to him as a Martyr – “Shahid.”
According to Palestinian Authority law, the family of today’s murderer will immediately start receiving a monthly PA stipend that the PA pays to the families of all the “Martyrs.”
The mother of the terrorist told a local Hebron news network that her son was “a hero” who made her “proud”:
Mother of terrorist Muhammad Taraireh: “My son is a hero. He made me proud. My son died as a Martyr defending Jerusalem and the Al-Aqsa Mosque. Praise be to Allah, Lord of the Worlds, he [my son] has joined the Martyrs before him, and he is not better than them. Allah willing, all of them will follow this path, all the youth of Palestine. Allah be praised.”

Earlier this week Palestinian Media Watch reported that Abbas’ advisor Sultan Abu Al-Einein said:
“Every place you find an Israeli cut off his head.”
