Never Too Young to Drive (or Get Caught)

Sunday, March 8th, 2015

On Sunday morning, a motorcycle cop noticed a driver on the road that looked suspicious to him.

Pulling over the vehicle, the policeman was surprised to discover the driver was a 15 year old boy from Beit Shemesh.

In the passenger seat was his 14 year old brother.

The police called the children’s mother who identified them as her children.

The police confiscated the car for 30 days, for what they said was leaking oil and broken signal lights.

Court Rules: Police Must Allow Jewish Prayer on Temple Mount

Monday, March 2nd, 2015

The police “must ensure that Jews can pray on the Temple Mount” – that was the ruling of Judge Malka Aviv in the case of Yehuda Glick vs. the Israeli Police.

On a number of occasion the police have banned Rabbi Yehuda Glick from ascending up to the Temple Mount.

Rabbi Glick told JewishPress.com that he regularly leads tour groups up to the Temple Mount, and not being allowed up prevented him from earning a living.

Rabbi Yehuda Glick took the police to court and sued for damages. On Sunday the court decided in Glick’s favor.

But the bigger victory was the court’s criticism of the police’s actions towards Jews on the Temple Mount and the explicit ruling that the police must ensure that Jews be able to pray on the Jewish people’s holiest site.

The police may choose to appeal both the financial award and the ruling, but the question remains, until the appeal, will the police respect the court’s ruling and ensure that Jews can pray on the Temple Mount?

In November, an Islamic terrorist shot Yehuda Glick 4 times at close range in Jerusalem in a failed attempt to assassinate him.

The terrorist was killed the next morning at his Jerusalem home when security forces tried to arrest him.

Last week, US Congressman Dennis Ross when up to the Temple Mount and found himself harassed by the Islamic extremists on the Jewish holy site.

At Least 22 Egyptian Soccer Fans Killed By Police

Monday, February 9th, 2015

Published at Jewish Business News

At least 22 Egyptian soccer fans were killed Sunday night, when security forces wouldn’t let them into a stadium, Reuters reported. A riot broke out outside a major soccer game between two Cairo teams, Zamalek and Enppi. Fans told Egyptian TV that the death toll was higher. Egypt’s health ministry said dozens of people were injured.

Security officials speaking on condition of anonymity told journalists that Zamalek fans tried to force their way into the stadium without tickets, which started the clashes with police.

Police used teargas to disperse the crowd. Apparently, some fans were killed in the stampede that resulted from police teargas. Doctors told Reuters the deaths were the result of suffocation.

Egypt’s interior ministry said in a statement: “Huge numbers of Zamalek club fans came to Air Defense Stadium to attend the match … and tried to storm the stadium gates by force, which prompted the troops to prevent them from continuing the assault.”

Egypt law limits the number of people allowed into soccer gamed since a 2012 riot at a Port Said stadium when more than 70 people were killed. But fans have been ignoring the law, and trying to storm soccer overcrowded stadiums.

French Soldiers Protecting Jewish Sites Receive Death Threats

Monday, February 2nd, 2015

French military personnel guarding Jewish sites in Paris are learning first-hand what anti-Semitism feels like.

The soldiers guarding a Jewish school in a suburb of the French capital have received death threats at least twice in the past two weeks.

In the first incident, a man drove in a car past the soldiers as they stood outside a school in Montreuil, shouting, “What does a Kalashnikov bullet in the head do? Does it bleed?”

A police source quoted by Le Figaro said the man also praised the recent terror attack on the offices of Charlie Hebdo and the Hyper Cacher kosher grocery before escaping the scene.

The car drove away, but was later tracked down by police and the driver, approximately age 27, was arrested and detained overnight but was released the next morning.

The previous Saturday night, a similar incident occurred in the suburb of Le Raincy, according to the France Soir daily. Two soldiers standing guard outside another Jewish school were also threatened by a man pretending to hold a gun, who then fled the scene.

At present some 10,000 French military personnel are deployed around the Paris region following a wave of terror attacks on Jan. 7, 8 and 9 that were aimed at Jewish and non-Jewish French citizens alike.
