Smuggled Diving Suits Intercepted on their Way to Gaza

Wednesday, May 20th, 2015

On Monday, the Shin Bet, Israel’s security service, aka the Shabak, intercepted an attempt to smuggle diving suits into Gaza.

It was part of a series of attempts to smuggle weapons and equipment into Gaza.

In last summer’s war with Gaza, Hamas terrorists attempted to infiltrate into Kibbutz Zikim by sea. The IDF intercepted the terrorists (see videos below).

The diving suits were part of Hamas’s attempt to build up it’s naval terror unit.

In April, security officials found hidden welding electrodes hidden in marble slabs, and materials used for making metal weapons hidden in dry food packages.

The could be used for making rockets and other weapons.

Hamas is not the only smuggler of terror paraphanalia.

Earlier this week customs officials at Ben Gurion Airport intercepted a shipment of silver rings with ISIS slogans on them on their way to Ramallah.

Mohammed Abu Khdeir Removed from Terror Victims List

Wednesday, April 22nd, 2015

Following a request from the family, Mohammed Abu Khdeir’s name has been removed from Bituach Leumi’s list of terror victims.

After the kidnapping and murder of the Jewish teenagers Gil-Ad Shaer, Naftali Fraenkel and Eyal Yifrach in Gush Etzion by Arab terrorists associated with Hamas, a 16 year old Arab boy, Abu Khdeir, was kidnapped in Jerusalem and brutally murdered by three Israelis. The murder set off a wave of Arab violence in Jerusalem.

The three killers were eventually found and arrested by police.

The state decided to classify Abu Khdeir as having been killed killed by terrorists in a terror attack.

The Abu Khdeir family asked Bituach Leumi to remove his name from the list of terror victims and the memorial, and they complied.

Abu Khdeir’s father said he hadn’t been informed that his son’s name would be added to the memorial, nor did he want his son’s name added.

He said he only wanted his son’s killers punished and justice be done.

The Park Hotel Passover Massacre, America’s Mideast Retreat, and Teaching the Nakba Narrative

Tuesday, March 31st, 2015


The Passover massacre was a suicide bombing carried out by a Hamas terrorist at the Park Hotel in Netanya, on March 27, 2002. Thirty civilians, in the midst of a seder, were killed in the attack and 140 others were wounded. David Bedein, director of the Israel Resource News Agency, joins Yishai to reminisce about that awful night; the connected story of the Saudi Peace Initiative; the fraudulent “massacre” in Jenin; the documents that came out of PLO chief Yasser Arafat’s computer; and the link to today’s American empowerment of Iran.

Then, Mati Wagner, Editorial Page Editor of The Jerusalem Post, and Dr. Seth Frandzman, Op-ed Editor of The Jerusalem Post, join Yishai in-studio to talk about the new power vacuum, and anarchy, that is forming in the Middle East due to the retreat of America, and the State Department’s new Persianist spirit which results in the administration’s emboldening of Iran.

Finally, Mati and Seth debate the issue of whether the Arab “nakba” narrative — according to which the establishment of the state of Israel in 1948 was a catastrophe — should be taught in Israeli schools.

Netanyahu to Release Frozen Palestinian Authority Tax Revenue

Friday, March 27th, 2015

Prime Minister Netanyahu has approved the transfer of frozen Palestinian Authority tax revenue, following the recommendations of Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon.

The tax revenue had been frozen following various unilateral steps by the Palestinian Authority in the international arena, in breach of all agreements with Israel.

Debts owed by the PA, such as for water, sewage, electricity and medical care will be deducted from the amount transferred to the PA.

The Prime Minister’s office says the decision was made based on humanitarian concerns and a broad view of Israeli interests at this time.

PM Netanyahu said that with the Middle East in turmoil, Israel must act judiciously and responsibly, along with determination against the extremists.

The Palestinian Authority has not retracted its plan to go to the International Criminal Court and charge Israelis with war crimes, or other steps against Israel in the international arena, in particular at the UN.

And the PA is still transferring money to the families of terrorists.

Releasing the funds may be an attempt to appease US President Obama, or alternatively, Israel is afraid that the PA may actually collapse, which would usher in a Hamas take over.

Information from Tazpit News Agency was used to produce this report.

This Day in History: Shalhevet Pass Murdered

Thursday, March 26th, 2015

Fourteen years ago today, March 26, 2001, a Palestinian Authority Arab using a sniper gun targeted and murdered 10-month-old Shalhevet Pass in Hebron, as she sat in her stroller.

The sniper also shot her father, Yitzchak Pass, two more times in the legs, seriously injuring him.

Two additional Jewish children, playing in the park were grazed by additional bullets from the Palestinian Authority Arab sniper.

The Palestinian Authority arrested the Tanzin/PLO-affiliated terrorist to keep him out of Israeli hands, and then released him a short time later.

The Shabak then captured Mahmoud Amru on December 9, 2002, and in December 2004 he was given three life sentences.
