New ‘Riot Kits’ Help Protect Soldiers and Police from Terrorists

Friday, November 27th, 2015

The government has bought more than 1,000 new riot-protection kits to help soldiers and police deal with terrorists armed with different kinds of weapons,. Israel Defense reported.

Lior Textile Company designed the modular kits. They were tested for several months and have been approved by a laboratory in Europe, where standards are very high. Security personnel now are using the kits in “live tests.”

Israel Defense reported:

One of the options offered by the modular design of the kit is the option of using it in different combat situations, as it may be adapted and used in conjunction with bullet and knife proof protective vests supplied by the same company.

The kit includes all of the protective elements for all parts of the user’s body, as well as purpose-designed flame-resistant coveralls (providing protection against Molotov cocktails) made from Nomex fabric by DuPont.

Police discovered on Monday an explosive device at a checkpoint and prevented what might have been a mass-casualty terrorist attack on Hebron Jews.

There’s Nothing More Permanent Than Temporary

Monday, October 19th, 2015

Police have begun putting up “temporary”, portable, concrete walls in the Jabel Mukaber neighborhood of Jerusalem, adjacent to the Armon HaNatziv neighborhood.

The police hope these temporary structures will prevent the Arabs of Jabel Mukaber from throwing firebombs at the Jewish-owned homes in Armon HaNatziv as well as at police, as they have been doing.

Of course, as everyone knows, there’s nothing more permanent than something that is temporary, and besides, who knows when the Arabs of Jabel Mukaber will finally decide to start behaving like civilized human beings again (and if so, for how long).

Police Installing Metal Detectors at Jerusalem’s Gates

Thursday, October 8th, 2015

Police will be installing metal detectors at a number of the entrances to the Old City of Jerusalem, according to an exclusive Galei Tzahal report.

In addition, a new Arab cyber division will be opened to track Arab coordination for terror attacks on social media platforms.

What is not clear is that since there are already plenty of knives inside every kitchen in the Old City, how will this help, and why didn’t the police have an Arab cyber division until now to track their online coordination?

Israeli Sappers Detonate Roadside Bomb on Samaria Road

Wednesday, October 7th, 2015

Israeli police sappers were called Wednesday evening to detonate a roadside bomb apparently planted by Palestinian Arab terrorists on a road in Samaria.

The trap was well laid: The explosive appeared to be an unobtrusive object on the road connecting the small Jewish communities of Peduel and Bruchin.

The sappers detonated the object – which actually was a bomb – without fanfare. No injuries were reported in the incident.

Earlier this evening, a Border Guard Police officer sustained facial wounds while she was working to disperse a mob of stone-throwing Palestinian Arabs who were attacking the police. The officer, who required medical treatment, was evacuated to a medical facility.

Police Brass Objection to New Candidate for Commissioner: Too Close to the Ultra-Orthodox

Wednesday, September 30th, 2015

(JNi.media) Senior police officials are finding it difficult to accept the appointment of Roni Alsheikh, Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan’s new candidate for Police Commissioner, and, according to a report on Israel’s Channel 10 News, the praise they originally voiced at the plan to appoint a Shin Bet deputy chief, has been transformed into concerns. It turns out that Roni Alsheikh has managed to come up in the clandestine security forces on the strength of his personality and remarkable intelligence, despite his skullcap, and despite his close connections to both ultra-Orthodox and national-religious groups.

According to the report, after earlier attempts to crack the mysterious personality of the new candidate for the top job had failed, police brass tried to trace his activity on the social network — and became overwhelmed by a distinct feeling of discomfort.

The report cites the social network message shared by Alsheikh’s wife, Shira, originally posted by an acquaintance of the Alsheikh family. Following stone throwing at the car of the mother of said acquaintance, the latter wrote on Facebook: “Israeli police today received 54 complaints of stone throwing and … you guessed it! Have not done anything about it. The cops must be too hot today. They (the terrorists) bomb with stones and police is bombing with its capabilities.”

Mind you, the post was not written, only shared, and not by Roni Alsheikh but by his wife, and if that’s the worst his opponents at the police have come up with then his glide to the new post seems certain. But then there were photos exposed recently in which Alsheikh is seen speaking with the Grand Rebbe of Modzitz, Rabbi Chaim Shaul Taub, at his study hall in Bnei Brak, and dancing with Torah scrolls at the Chasidic court of Sanz in Netanya.

The police brass, who are still smarting from the scandal involving Rabbi Josiah Pinto, followed by the suicide of a top police officer—in a year that saw the police leadership getting mired in sex and corruption scandals, just aren’t happy to see a potential police officer on such friendly terms with the ultra-Orthodox.

According to the Channel 10 report, Alsheikh’s friends and colleagues understand this concern, explaining that the police leaders who haven’t been caught taking bribes or sexually abusing their female employees have nothing to fear. “Alsheikh is an officer with values,” they promised, assuring Channel 10 that “the good of the state and the police will always be on his mind.”

On Thursday, the Turkel Committee will convene to approve Alsheikh’s appointment. The Channel 10 news report suggested that the committee will inquire about his plans for handling of the ultra-Orthodox sector, although Justice Turkel, renowned for his mild temperament, is not likely to find fault with a police commissioner who genuinely gets along with religious Jews.
