Armon Hanatziv Teen Terrorist Gets 3 Life Sentences

Monday, July 11th, 2016

The Jerusalem District Court on Monday entenced of Bilal Abu Ghanem of Jabal village, a 14-year-old terrorist convicted of involvement in a stabbing attack on bus passengers in Jerusalem’s Armon Hanatziv area last October, to three cumulative life sentences plus 60 years. The attack resulted in the murder of Alon Gobbrg, Haim Habib and Richard Leikin HY”D. The other attacker was killed by security forces.

The terrorist, who was 13 at the time of the attack, was convicted last May of two counts of attempted murder and one count of possession of a knife. The defense argued that the boy did not carry out the actual stabbing and was only involved “to scare Jews.”

The court did not accept the argument that scaring Jews was an appropriate leisure activity for youths and convicted the boy of the charges.

UNESCO to Question Jewish Ties to Western Wall in Arab-Sponsored Draft Resolution

Sunday, July 10th, 2016

United Nations Watch, a Geneva-based watchdog organization, expressed concern today that UNESCO may fuel anti-Jewish incitement and violence, and the increasing PA Arabs’ denial of Jewish religious and cultural rights, by adopting an Arab-sponsored draft resolution that denies Jewish ties to Jerusalem’s Western Wall and Temple Mount.

The Jordanian-Palestinian draft text on the Old City of Jerusalem was submitted to the 21-member World Heritage Committee, which meets over the next 10 days in Istanbul for its 40th annual session.

“This inflammatory resolution risks encouraging the past year’s wave of Arab stabbing and shooting attacks in Jerusalem and other parts of Israel, which began with false claims that Israel was planning to damage holy Muslim shrines,” said Hillel Neuer, executive director of UN Watch.

Under the battle cry of “Al-Aqsa mosque is in danger,” incitement in September by Fatah, Hamas and Islamic Jihad sparked a wave of terror attacks across Israel which began on the Temple Mount and eastern Jerusalem. At least 40 have been killed and more than  500 wounded. The Arab attacks include 155 stabbings, 96 shootings, 45 car ramming attacks, and one bus bombing.

The draft now before UNESCO includes the following problematic language:

  • The draft refers ten times to Al-Haram Al-Sharif, exclusively using the Islamic term for Temple Mount, without any mention that it is the holiest site in Judaism. This is part of a larger campaign at the UN, and particularly in UNESCO, to Islamize sites historically belonging to other faiths.
  • This year’s proposed draft is even more extreme than the resolution adopted in 2015. The new version three times uses the Islamic term Buraq Plaza while placing the parallel name “Western Wall Plaza” in scare quotes, implying skepticism or disbelief concerning what is the most hallowed site for Jewish worshippers over two millennia, due to the ancient wall’s connection to the Holy Jewish Temple destroyed in 70 CE. Last year’s resolution also sought to diminish the Jewish connection by putting the name Western Wall in parentheses after the Islamic term, yet the new use of quotation marks intensifies the denialism that was famously promoted by Yasser Arafat’s negotiator at Camp David, and which continues in Palestinian Authority statements.
  • Israel, which is referred to throughout as “the Occupying Power” in Jerusalem, is called to restore “the historic Status Quo,” with the new word “historic”—a change from last year’s text—implying a reversal of any changes since 1967.
  • Jerusalem’s light rail, which is used daily by thousands of Arab residents among others, is accused of having a “damaging effect” on the “visual integrity” and “authentic character” of the walls of the Old City of Jerusalem—even though the track passes through an existing highway and only facilitates transportation for visitors of all faiths.

The 21 members on the UNESCO world heritage committee are: Angola, Azerbaijan, Burkina Faso, Croatia, Cuba, Finland, Indonesia, Jamaica, Kazakhstan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Peru, Philippines, Poland, Portugal, South Korea, Tunisia, Turkey, Tanzania, Vietnam, and Zimbabwe. Good luck to all of us.

Watch: IDF Soldiers Afraid To Use Their Weapons Against Knife Wielding Zombie [video]

Wednesday, July 6th, 2016

On Tuesday a knife wielding female Arab terrorist approached a hitchhiking post at the Gitai Avisar junction in Samaria, an incident that ended in her death. However, the enclosed dashboard camera record of the incident reveals a troubling fact about the encounter: throughout the incident, it is painfully obvious that the two armed IDF soldiers are afraid to shoot the attacker.

They are afraid – but they are not afraid of the terrorist.  They are afraid to use their weapon against her and they do everything to avoid having to pull the trigger.

It takes the two soldiers a full 10 seconds, during which they keep retreating from the knife waving attacker, ordering her back as she continues to advance zombie fashion, until they are forced to shoot her.

Then, as the attacker, who is very much alive, continues to writhe in pain on the ground, the soldiers fail to eliminate her, exposing themselves to the real danger of being blown up by an explosive device she could be carrying, or if she got up again with her knife as the Bezeq terrorist did. There is even a point in the video where the two soldiers simultaneously look behind them, losing line of sight with the still-moving terrorist.

If ever there were proof of the damage that the IDF leadership has inflicted on the ability of the soldiers on the ground to defend themselves effectively against crazed terrorist attackers — this one should be played round-the-clock at IDF headquarters. This is a video of soldiers plagued by the fear of being prosecuted for their righteous actions and a fear of being forced to use their weapon against a dangerous terrorist who has clearly stepped beyond the rational realm.

The action begins around 0:20.

Terrorist Neutralized At Hitchhiking Post in the Shomron

Tuesday, July 5th, 2016

A female terrorist tried to stab a soldier at the Gitai Evyasar junction hitchhiking post on Road 5 in the Shomron on Tuesday evening.

A civilian was waiting in the hitchhiking post, and two soldiers were guarding it.

The female terrorist approached and raised the soldier’s suspicions, so they asked her to show them her ID. She then tried to stab one of the soldiers.

The soldiers then shot and neutralized the terrorist.

No one was wounded in the attack.

The terrorist was moderately to seriously wounded, and received medical aid from the soldiers.

Update: Beilinson hospital reports the terrorist is in serious condition, unconscious and on a respirator.

Abbas’ Advisor May Have Inspired the Hallel Ariel Murder

Thursday, June 30th, 2016

The murder of 13-year-old Hallel Ariel Thursday morning may have been inspired by an exceptionally vile statement made this week by a high PA official, Abbas’ advisor and Fatah Central Committee member Sultan Abu Al-Einein, who on Monday urged Arabs to seek out Israelis in order to cut off their heads.

The statement was made during an interview with Donia Al-Watan, an independent Palestinian news agency, about building peaceful and normal relations with Israel, according to Palestinian Media Watch. Abu Al-Einein explained that he rejects “negotiations, meetings, and normalization” activities and believes that when a Palestinian meets an Israeli he should kill him.

“Regarding the matter of normalization [with Israel] and the participation of members of the Fatah leadership and members of the PLO Executive Committee in Israeli conferences, Abu Al-Einein said: ‘If you would ask me about my personal position, I would tell you — every place you find an Israeli cut off his head. Likewise, I am against talks, negotiations, meetings, and normalization in all its forms with the Israeli occupation,’” Donia Al-Watan reported.

According to PMW, based on his previous statements and Facebook posts it is clear that his statement promoting murder should be taken literally. Abu Al-Einein has stated in the past that killing Jews and Israelis is not merely a Palestinian national goal but is what Allah demands of Palestinians as an Islamic necessity. After the bloody terror attack in November 2014 in which four rabbis were murdered during prayer in a synagogue in the Har Nof neighborhood of western Jerusalem, this Abbas advisor posted pictures of the dead rabbis and a shot of a pool of their blood on his Facebook page to celebrate the murder. He wrote that the butchering of the rabbis with axes and kitchen knives was “the heroic operation at the religious Zionist institute.”

The Coordinator of Government Activities in Judea and Samaria, Maj. Gen. Yoav Mordechai, warned on his Facebook page that Abu al-Einein’s incitements would have “repercussions.”

“Such words, in the summer of 2016, in a region that wakes up and falls asleep to the news of terrorist actions… cannot be allowed to stay within the bounds of rhetoric,” Maj. Gen. Mordechai warned.

Considering that Hallel Ariel’s killer was attempting to cut her throat while stabbing her body repeatedly, it could be established that Abbas’ advisor’s instructions were the driving force behind the despicable attack and that the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories should at least pick the man up for questioning.

Israel Demolishes Home of Terrorist Who Murdered US Army Vet After PA Praises the Murder [video]

Tuesday, June 21st, 2016

Security forces on Monday night demolished the northern Samaria Hajjah village house belonging to the family of terrorist Bashar Masalha who murdered an American tourist, 29-year-old US Army veteran Taylor Force, and wounded 11 others last March. Masalha embarked on a stabbing spree near the Jaffa harbor promenade on the same night US Vice President Joe Biden was appearing at the nearby Peres Peace Center. In the end, the terrorist was shot by an Israeli policeman and then killed while lying wounded on the grass by an Israeli police volunteer. Both men were commended for their resolute action.

Israel handed Masalha’s body over to the Palestinian Authority, whose official TV channel glorified him by calling him shahid-martyr 11 times, according to Palestinian Media Watch. The PA TV reporter said, among other things, “His family, friends, and people of the region took it upon themselves to ensure that this [burial] would be a large national wedding befitting of martyrs… The martyr was accompanied to his last resting place in the cemetery for martyrs in Hajja.”

The official PA daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida also honored the martyr, saying, “Masalha died as a martyr on March 8, after carrying out a stabbing operation in Jaffa, in which he killed an American tourist.”

Or, as the PA TV reporter put it, “Martyr Bashar Masalha, 22, ascended to Heaven in Jaffa on March 8. He returned and was embraced by the soil of his homeland as a martyr.”

Someone should tell the State Dept. how the PA, a recipient of generous US aid, treats the murderer of an American citizen.
