Stone-Throwing Teen Terrorist Gets 9 Years in Jail

Monday, November 21st, 2016

A teen terrorist who murdered Alexander Levlovich in a stoning on the street of a Jerusalem neighborhood on Rosh HaShana last year has been sentenced to nine years in prison.

The decision was handed down after a plea deal was reached three weeks ago with the State Attorney’s Office, against the wishes of the victim’s family.

The murderer agreed to admit to the charges and serve his jail term in exchange for testimony against the other three perpetrators involved in the attack.

All four Arab attackers were indicted on charges of manslaughter, aggravated battery, endangering human life on the road, obstruction of justice by a police officer in the line of duty, arson and weapons manufacturing. Two were also accused of throwing firebombs (Molotov cocktails) and stoning security forces during riots in 2014.

The four attackers hurled the rocks at Levlovich’s vehicle as he drove home with his family from a holiday dinner, attacking the Israelis in “retaliation and in solidarity” following clashes on the Temple Mount, according to the indictment.

According to the statement by the Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet), it was Abed Dawiat who hurled the stone that smashed Levlovich’s windshield, destroying his ability to control the vehicle and sending the car hurtling into a utility pole.

Earlier that year, four-year-old Adele Biton succumbed to the massive injuries she suffered months earlier when she and her family came under a stoning attack by Arab terrorists as they drove in a car on a road in Samaria.

Little Adele’s mother and sisters were also injured, but it was the smallest child who fought a lion-sized 18-months-long battle along with her doctors for life.

One of Adele Biton’s murderers was sentenced to 15 years in prison for the crime of murder by stoning.

There have been others.

Asher Palmer, 24, was the son of American immigrants to Israel when he and his baby son Yonatan were murdered in a September 2011 stoning near Kiryat Arba, by Arabs from the Palestinian Authority in Judea. Both of their murderers proudly confessed to their role when they were captured and charged with the attack.

That same month alone, 498 incidents of stoning attacks were recorded by the IDF.

It’s important to know that the leadership of the Palestinian Authority to this day glorifies those who maim and murder Jews and Israelis.

The PA government especially honors those who succeed in terrorist attacks against citizens of the Jewish State, and pays monthly salaries to those who are convicted and jailed in Israel on charges of terrorism. The longer the sentence, the higher the salaries, which are supported — perhaps inadvertently — by the international community via foreign aid to the coffers of the Palestinian Authority and the Palestine Liberation Organization.

Financial aid to the Palestinian Authority and to the Palestine Liberation Organization, via the United Nations, Russia, the European Union or the United States — the much-vaunted “Quartet of Nations” — or anyone else, for that matter, has translated into terrorist attacks against Israel.

Report: Bedouin Tribe, Gush Etzion Council, Cooperate Against PA Environmental Disaster [video]

Monday, November 21st, 2016

A few weeks ago, it was revealed that the Palestinian Authority was planning to build a cement factory at the heart of a nature preserve in the Judaean Desert. The news came from local Bedouins who had run into surveyors who were measuring the site in preparation for the construction.

According to a report in Kippa, the Bedouins physically blocked the surveyors, who called the PA Police, and only an IDF intervention prevented what would have become a bloodbath.

Following that incident, Moshe Seville, Acting Head of the Gush Etzion Regional Council, and Yossi Levitt, a local agricultural entrepreneur, met with the head of the local Rashaida tribe and listened to his and his people’s concerns regarding the planned factory. The tribesmen warned that it would harm the nature preserve, create massive pollution of the environment and cause illness in the tribe, especially the children.

Seville agreed that the new factory would have an environmental impact that would cause an irreparable damage to the entire area. He even predicted that the spilled waste from the factory would turn the Dead Sea gray.

The Rashaida leaders said they had already contacted their fellow tribesmen in Jordan, and the Hashamite Kingdom has already been acting to prevent the damage to the sea. One tribesman told Seville that he can’t understand how environmental organizations which normally raise hell at the slightest damage to nature preserves have kept mum in this case. He added that for him the Judaean desert is as sacred as Mecca, and he would never accept it destruction for the sake of making money.

According to Seville, the meeting concluded with a resolution to fight together to prevent the looming environmental disaster, and enlist the support of everyone involved, including the defense and the environmental protection ministers, the heads of neighboring councils, and anyone else who is concerned about the future of the Dead Sea, before it’s too late.

PA Arabs Build Ilegal ‘Outpost’ Near Jewish Town in Jordan Valley

Thursday, November 17th, 2016

By Andrew Friedman/TPS

Dozens of Palestinian Authority Arab activists erected a large tent on state land in the northern Jordan Valley Thursday, near the Israeli town of Mehola.

Eyewitness Hezy Eyal told Tazpit Press Service (TPS) that the Arabs called it a “settlement outpost” and said the move was intended to “protest Jewish settlements in the region.” They named the area Yasser Arafat Village.

Eyal said about two dozen Israeli activists joined the protest, asking why Israelis were living on “Palestinian land” and demanding that IDF forces not expel the Arabs from the site.

IDF and local security forces responded to the demonstration, and field commanders on site ordered the protesters to leave. As of this writing, the protesters have not left, and security forces have not removed them.

Jordan Valley Regional Council head David Elhayani told TPS that the move is reflective of a years-long reticence on the part of the government to exercise Israel’s sovereignty in the area.

“In recent years, [Arabs in the region] have become bolder than they were in the past,” he said. “They have been building illegal structures and taking over state lands. [They are nothing more than] law breakers who have figured out that law enforcement in this region has become lax.

“Today’s attempt by Palestinians to take over state lands is a challenge to the rule of law,” added Elhayani. “I demand not only that they be removed immediately, but that they also face criminal prosecution. Their cars should also be confiscated in order to set an example.”

ZOA Head Wants ADL’s Greenblatt to Apologize to Bannon

Tuesday, November 15th, 2016

Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) President Morton A. Klein released a statement saying “it is painful to see Anti-Defamation League (ADL) president Jonathan Greenblatt engaging in character assassination against President-elect Trump’s appointee Stephen Bannon and Mr. Bannon’s company, Breitbart media. ADL/Greenblatt essentially accused Mr. Bannon and his media company of ‘anti-Semitism’ and Israel hatred, when Jonathan Greenblatt/ADL tweeted that Bannon ‘presided over the premier website of the ‘alt right’ – a loose-knit group of white nationalists and anti-Semites.’”

But Klein insists that, as pro-Israel writer (who happens to be an orthodox Jew) Joel B. Pollak wrote, Mr. Bannon is “an American patriot who defends Israel & has deep empathy for the Jewish people.”

According to Klein, ZOA’s experience and analysis of Breitbart articles confirm Bannon’s and Breitbart’s “friendship and fair-mindedness towards Israel and the Jewish people. To accuse Mr. Bannon and Breitbart of anti-Semitism is Orwellian.” He cites cases in wich Breitbart fought against anti-Semitism:

Bannon joined ZOA in fighting the anti-Semitic rallies at CUNY, a Breitbart reporters called CUNY officials and Gov. Cuomo aides urging them to do something about it.

Breitbart regularly publishes articles reporting that the Palestinian Authority defames Israel with blatant falsehoods.  On November 13, 2016, Breitbart reported that “the Palestinian Authority’s official TV network has been airing a video several times a day baselessly accusing Israel of poisoning former PA President Yasser Arafat and further claiming that Israel is targeting current President Mahmoud Abbas next.  Arafat died at the age of 75 on November 11, 2004, just outside of Paris. A French forensic team examined his remains and concluded that there were no traces of poison in his body.  Nevertheless, every year around the anniversary of his death, the PA disseminates the libel that Israel murdered him.”

On November 14, 2016 Breitbart reported the human cost and pain to a Jewish student at the New School of finding a swastika scrawled on her dorm room door.

Breitbart publicizes Iran’s violations of the nuclear deal – which pose an existential threat to Israel.  On November 13, 2016, Breitbart reported that “despite a finding published by the UN’s atomic energy agency this week that Iran has — for the second time — stockpiled more heavy water than permitted under the terms of the nuclear agreement it reached with six world powers last year, the US State Department is declining to acknowledge this as a violation of the deal.

Breitbart also reports sympathetically on the scourge of anti-Semitic, anti-Israel boycotts, divestment and sanctions (BDS).  On November 2, 2016, Breitbart reported that “reports of anti-Semitic incidents on US college campuses have increased, much of it attributed to the rise of the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement.”

Klein declared the ZOA is urging “Jonathan Greenblatt/ADL to withdraw and apologize for their inappropriate character assassination of Mr. Bannon and Breitbart Media.”

Breslov Chassidim Attacked and Arrested by PA Police

Sunday, November 13th, 2016

Five Breslov Chassidim, who endangered their lives by sneaking into Joseph’s Tomb in Shechem in the the middle of the night — without coordination with the IDF — were attacked and arrested by Palestinian Authority (PA) police.

During the night, four of the Chassidim left their car and walked to Joseph’s Tomb, while the fifth Breslov Chassid, the driver, stayed with their vehicle.

At around 4 AM, according to Hatzalah Yo”sh, the PA police tried to arrest the Breslov Chassid in the car, and he sped off back to Jerusalem, leaving his friends behind.

As he sped off, the PA police reportedly opened fire. There is a hole in the car’s windshield which may be from a bullet. The driver was not injured.

The other 4 were arrested by the PA police, and eventually handed over to the IDF.

Joseph’s Tomb, according to the Oslo Accords, is supposed to be under Israeli control, but entry requires coordination and a permit from the IDF who runs the occasional organized, guarded visit to the Jewish holy site.

Yossi Dagan, the head of the Shomron Municipal Council called on everyone who wants to visit Joseph’s Tomb to not do so, unless it is in coordination with the IDF, and to do so otherwise is a sin against the Torah commandment to guard your life.

Dagan also demanded the IDF protect Jewish rights and ensure more Jewish entry to the site.

According to the Honeinu Legal Aid Society, the four are now being interrogated by the Israeli police in the Shomron district.

Arabs have repeatedly vandalized and destroyed the site.

PA UN Envoy Threatening to Make Trump’s Life Miserable for Moving Embassy to Jerusalem

Sunday, November 13th, 2016

In a priceless demonstration of the Arabs’ 600-year long failure to appreciate new realities, Riyad Mansour, the Palestinian Authority’s UN Ambassador, on Friday warned President-elect Donald Trump that if he dared move the US embassy to Jerusalem, he and his ilk would “make life miserable” for the United States at the United Nations.

“If people attack us by moving the embassy to Jerusalem, which is a violation of Security Council resolutions, it is a violation of resolution 181 of the UN general assembly that was drafted by the US … it means they are showing belligerency towards us … If they do that nobody should blame us for unleashing all of the weapons that we have in the UN to defend ourselves and we have a lot of weapons in the UN,” Mansour said.

Mansour did demonstrate that he was still living on Planet Earth by conceding that the Security Council would not vote to condemn such a move by the US, because, well, the US is a veto wielding member of the Security Council. But that did not hold the PA rep back from warning the incoming president. “Maybe I can’t have resolutions in the Security Council but I can make their lives miserable everyday with precipitating a veto on my admission as a member state.”

Mansour, who served as the Deputy Permanent Observer of the PLO to the United Nations from 1983 to 1994, succeeded Nasser al-Qudwa as Permanent Observer for Palestine to the UN in 2005. On November 29, 2012, 65 years to the day after the Arabs forever ruined their chance for a legitimate state in the UN Partition vote, the Permanent Observer Mission of Palestine to the United Nations was upgraded to “non-Member Observer State.” Now, it appears, Ambassador Mansour made sure no further upgrades may be coming. Especially when he promised Trump he would drag him to the International Criminal Court of Justice in the Hague.

Taking Trump to court — now, that’ll scare him.

Mansour warned that “it is illegal to defy Security Council resolutions that the US is party to it that the unilateral action by Israel annexing East Jerusalem is illegal and it is null and void. If the US administration wants to defy international law they are doing something illegal.”

Trump’s plan to move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem sounds radically different coming from his key advisor Jason Greenblatt than from his other key advisor, Walid Phares. The former has spread enthusiastic promises regarding the move before the election, the latter has told the BBC that the move depended on there being a favorable “consensus.”

On Saturday night’s satirical show Back of the Nation, comic Rotem Abuhav said moving the embassy would be a nightmare, seeing as it would permanently clog the already jammed city traffic, making it impossible for Israelis to receive consular services. Abuhav suggested that from now on, instead of taking a trip to see America, she and her family would just take a trip to the US embassy to take the Visa Application ride.

Trump Once Again Promising to Deal Peace for Israel

Saturday, November 12th, 2016

President Elect Donald J. Trump, possibly the most unpredictable man in American political history, has reiterated his promise to employ his “Art of the Deal” in achieving lasting peace between Jews and Arabs in the Middle East. In an interview to the Wall Street Journal Friday, in which he also said he would leave in place parts of Obamacare, and said he got a “beautiful” letter from Russian President Vladimir Putin upon his victory,  Trump repeated his promise “to help craft a resolution” for the Israel-Palestine situation, which he called “the war that never ends.”

Back in March 2016, candidate Trump told the NY Times regarding the 2-state solution, “I would love to see if a deal could be made. If a deal could be made. Now, I’m not sure it can be made, there’s such unbelievable hatred, there’s such, it’s ingrained, it’s in the blood, the hatred and the distrust, and the horror. But I would love to see if a real deal could be made. Not a deal that you know, lasts for three months, and then everybody starts shooting again. And a big part of that deal, you know, has to be to end terror, we have to end terror.”

Trump then said, “Basically I support a two-state solution on Israel,” with the proviso that “the Palestinian Authority has to recognize Israel’s right to exist as a Jewish state. Have to do that. And they have to stop the terror, stop the attacks, stop the teaching of hatred, you know?”

The Trump/Pence campaign website has since then removed all references to the 2-state solution from its “Foreign Policy and Defeating ISIS” positions page. But now, in his WSJ interview, the President Elect confessed to his desire for incorporating what he termed “the ultimate deal,” noting that “as a deal maker, I’d like to do… the deal that can’t be made. And do it for humanity’s sake.”

Walid Phares, a Trump top foreign policy adviser, told BBC Radio on Thursday that an Israeli-Palestinian peace deal is a Trump top agenda item. “He is ready and he will immediately move to try and solve the problem between Palestinian and Israelis,” Phares said. “He told me personally that, as the author of ‘The Art of the Deal,’ it’s not going to be impossible for him to broker a deal between the Israelis and Palestinians. At least he’s going to go in that direction and not waste eight years — four years for now — not doing something for the Palestinians and Israelis.”

Somebody should tell Ivanka Trump and Jason Greenblatt as soon as Shabbat is out. Greenblatt on Thursday told Israel’s Army Radio that “Trump thinks Israel is in a difficult situation and must defend herself. Peace must arrive through a bilateral initiative and he has no plan to get involved in it.”

But that was Thursday.
