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.

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.

UN Raps Israel Over Status of Palestinian Women

Saturday, March 21st, 2015

There was a Prime Minister named Netanyahu He had Israeli children to feed and to school The UN Commission on Women said, “Nu, You should have watched over PA women too!”

Sometimes one just has to sit back and wonder when the members of the United Nations are going to come home from DisneyLand.

On Friday (March 20) the UN Commission on the Status of Women actually passed a resolution blaming Israel for “the grave situation of Palestinian women.”

Anyone who has had a look at the mansions on the hills behind the photo-op shacks along the roads of Judea and Samaria knows what a sham this is. Whatever crisis exists is one of the PA government’s own making, fed by its leadership’s insatiable appetite for Jewish and Arab blood and terror, and drained by the unending parade of foreign aid-supported salaries paid to incarcerated life-sentence terrorist prisoners who performed their “jihad” (holy war) by attacking Israelis — both Jews and Arabs.

“The Israeli occupation remains the major obstacle for Palestinian women with regard to their advancement, self-reliance and integration in the development of their society,” according to the resolution. As usual the international community is asked to pick up the tab for what is called “the dire humanitarian crisis being faced by Palestinian women and their families.”

Oddly, Israel was the only country to be singled out by the commission – oddly, because Iran hangs women for weird reasons, yet that nation was not mentioned — and yet it seems as though the UN Commission on the Status of Women is beginning to mimic the UN Human Rights Council. Perhaps they’ve been taking lessons.

This agency functions under the same international body that has granted these women status as residents of a “non-member observer state” – that is, an independent sovereign nation as yet undeclared officially in the UN Security Council. We have yet to see how long that will last. U.S. President Barack Obama has been threatening to abandon Israel there; if he does, the entire world may change — again.

Two governments, as a matter of fact, given that the Palestinian Authority is actually comprised of not one, but two governments.

The so-called “unity government” touted by PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas under the pact with Gaza’s ruling Hamas terrorist organization requires a separate government for that region. Gaza is still treated as a separate state, as it has been since Hamas seized control and ousted the PA’s leading Fatah faction in 2007.

So two governments, for one Palestinian people, in the one Palestinian Authority which has two Palestinian states comprising one Palestine … ? It’s all very confusing.

Why should Israel be held responsible for the “grave situation” of women whose welfare falls under the aegis of their own government? The government of the entity sponsored the resolution, in fact.

Yes. It does sound a little contradictory doesn’t it? But the resolution was sponsored by South Africa and by the Palestinians. It passed with 13 abstentions, by a vote of 27-2. Only the United States and Israel voted against it.

European Union members – cowards that they are – abstained. We will see how the vote goes one day when such cowardice brings the chickens home to roost.

Israeli Ambassador to the UN, Ron Prosor, denounced the resolution of course. “If anyone has ever doubted that the UN is biased against Israel, today we got further proof,” he said.

“Of the 193 member states in this institution, dozens slaughter innocent civilians and impose discriminatory laws that marginalize women and yet they all get a free pass,” he observed.

Teen Terrorist in Court for Wounding Baby

Friday, December 19th, 2014

A Jerusalem court has brought charges against a teenage terrorist who wounded a young baby last week. The 16-year-old attacker, who cannot be named for legal reasons, is an Arab resident of the city.

He was charged with hurling a brick at a bus last Sunday. The bus was heading for the Western Wall, a Jewish holy site.

Several passengers were hit with shattered glass in the attack, and a baby suffered cuts to his head.

Arab children and teens living in Jerusalem have been involved in several recent attacks. This week, a group of Arab boys ages just 10 to 12 attacked a civilian bus, causing damage but no injuries.

The involvement of Arab children in terrorism in Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria and Gaza is a phenomenon that dates back generations. Terrorist groups in the region have been taken to task by Amnesty International, the Coalition to Stop the Use of Child Soldiers, and others for making cynical use of teenagers and young children to attack Jewish civilians.

Sharp Rise in Palestinian Terror

Wednesday, August 6th, 2014

Palestinian terrorists committed 1,200 terror attacks during the first seven months of 2014, as compared to 1,400 for all of 2013, Israel Radio reported.

The most notorious attacks on Israel civilians included the abduction and murder of Eyal Yifrah, Gil-Ad Sha’ar and Naftali Fraenkel on June 12, and the roadside shooting of Asher and Yonatan Palmer on Erev Pesach. Palestinian gangs have attacked countless Israeli cars with stones and Molotov cocktails. In addition, IDF and security forces have thwarted thousands of attempts by would-be terrorists to infiltrate Israel, as well as attempted attacks aimed at Jewish communities
 

1 MIA as IDF Names 6 Additional Members of the Golani 13

Tuesday, July 22nd, 2014

The IDF has released 6 additional names from the Golani 13, who were killed in Shejaiya on July 20.

As of now, 12 names have been released.

The newly released names are:

Sgt. Oren Simcha Noach, 22, from Hoshaya

Sgt. Ben Oanounou, 19, from Ashdod

Sgt. Sean Mondshein, 19, from Tel Aviv

Sgt. Daniel Pomerantz, 20, from Kfar Azar

Sgt. Shachar Taaseh, 20, from Pardasia

Sgt. Max Steinberg, 24, from Be’er Sheva (LA)

The previously released names are:

Major Tzafrir Bar-Or,32, from Holon

Captain Zvi Kaplan, 28, from Kedumim

Gilad Yaakovi, 21, from Kiryat Ono

Oz Mendelovitz, 21, from Avtalyon

Sean Carmeli, 21, from Raanana (Texas)

Moshe Malko, 20, from Jerusalem

One name still hasn’t been released, as the IDF has been unable to identify his body at this point. The IDF is still working to identify body parts.

It is believed that Hamas may have taken his body or parts of it, and the IDF does not believe the soldier could have survived the attack.

The family is being kept up to date.

Or Heller of Channel 10 reports that an IDF drone above the fight in Shejaiya saw Hamas trying to steal the dead bodies, but they did not succeed. Heller says, in most likelihood, the most Hamas has in its possession is a shoe or a dog tag.
