Female Terrorist Stopped, Stone-Throwers Hurt Israeli Cop in Hebron

Sunday, December 27th, 2015

A female Arab terrorist was caught and disarmed Sunday by security personnel when she tried to enter the Cave of the Patriarchs in the ancient Judean city of Hebron.

She was transferred to security personnel for interrogation.

A few minutes earlier, an Israeli police officer was hurt in an attack by Arab terrorists hurling rocks at forces stationed at one of the Kiryat Arba junctions near Hebron.

Security forces are out sweeping the area for the perpetrators.

Investigation Clears Police Officer Who Killed ‘Scissors Terrorist’

Wednesday, December 16th, 2015

A police investigation ordered by the offices of the attorney general and government prosecutor has cleared a police sapper of criminal intent of shooting shot dead a terrorist attacking bystanders.

The two teenage female terrorists brandished scissors to stab people at the city’s Mahane Yehuda open market last month. One of them managed to lightly wound a 70-year-old Arab before the police sapper at the scene shot her and her accomplice.

A video showed one of the women on the ground after being shot and then the police officer shooting her again and killing her, prompting the government attorneys to demand an investigation on suspicion of murder.

The investigators concluded, after three days of questioning, that since there was no sound with the video, there was no way to contradict statements by the police sapper that he first ordered the woman to drop the scissors and shot only after she refused.

It also could not be proven that the woman still did not present a danger even after she was on the ground. Experience has shown that terrorists sometimes have tried to stab police or guards who approach them after being grounded by gunfire.

Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan spoke from the podium in the Knesset Tuesday to sharply criticize the offices of the attorney general and prosecutor for ordering the probe

He said:

I express my regret at the decision of the legal advisers to investigate the police sapper who foiled the attack in Jerusalem by two female terrorists.

I am not able to understand why people try to judge police security forces every time they make split-decisions during a terror attack, as if we were talking about working in a laboratory and as if it were possible to know in a moment what weapons and explosives may be on the body of terrorists or if they still have the strength to stab anyone who approaches them.

An indictment was presented in court on Friday against the female terrorist who was not shot dead during the attack.

Two Arrested for Temple Mount Prayers

Monday, December 7th, 2015

Two people were arrested by Israeli police on Monday morning for praying on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, according to TPS reports.

The first man arrested was a Rabbi from Beit Shemesh who said the “Aleinu L’Shabeach” prayer, one of the oldest prayers in Judaism.

He has since been released and a court hearing has been scheduled for him.

The second person arrested said a “Mishaberach l’Cholim” (Prayer for the sick).

He’s currently still in custody.

Both are being assisted by lawyers from Honeinu.

Police Foil Stabbing Attempt by 18-Year-old Hebron Terrorist

Saturday, December 5th, 2015

Another stabbing attack was prevented by Israeli security forces Saturday afternoon when an 18-year-old Hebron woman was caught with a knife in her hands at a checkpoint.

Border Police were conducting searches when they saw her with a knife, and she was arrested without any shots being fired.

The number of young female terrorists has risen sharply since the latest wave of escalating violence and reflects a generation or orchestrated incitement by the Palestinian Authority school system and media.

Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon has stated that the phenomenon of the “lone terrorist” is not going to disappear quickly.

Israeli’s best defense against attacks that are not carried out by organized terror cells is total alertness by civilians, police and soldiers.

France Shuts Down 3 ‘Radical’ Mosques Under Emergency Laws

Wednesday, December 2nd, 2015

The French government has shut down three mosques under emergency laws passed in the wake of the Nov. 13 terrorist massacre in Paris.

Those laws gave police sweeping new authority until February 2016, despite rights groups and politicians who expressed concerns about reports of police abuses of power.

“Measures to close down mosques on the grounds of radicalization … have never been made by any previous government, French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve noted in his briefing with media on Wednesday.

He added that police have carried out 2,235 raids across France since the massacre; 334 weapons were seized, including 24 military-grade assault weapons.

The criticism was dismissed by the Interior Minister, however. “It is terrorism, not the state of emergency, which threatens freedoms,” said Cazeneuve.

The multi-site attack by Da’esh (ISIS) operatives and suicide bombers claimed the lives of 130 victims and wounded 350 others.

One of the mosques that was closed is located in the eastern Paris suburb of Lagny-sur-Marne, according to France 24. During the process, nine people were placed on house arrest. Another 22 were banned from leaving the country.

“Police searches [there] turned up a 9mm caliber pistol, a hidden hard drive, documents and files on jihad and a life insurance policy subscribed in 2012,” Cazeneuve said, according to the RFI news outlet.

“The Council of Ministers will now dissolve these three pseudo-cultural organizations which used clandestine prayer rooms on the premises,” he added. Mosques in Lyon (in central eastern France) and Gennevilliers (near Paris) were also closed on grounds of spreading radicalism as well.

Israel Demolishes Home of Terrorist in Northern Jerusalem

Wednesday, December 2nd, 2015

Hundreds of police officers and IDF soldiers gathered Wednesday morning to protect workers who demolished the home of a terrorist in the northern Jerusalem neighborhood of Shuafat.

The terrorist, Ibrahim Al-Akri, carried out a ram-and-stab attack in his mini-van at a train platform, killing two officers and then getting out of his vehicle to attack bystanders. He was neutralized by forces at the scene who shot and killed him.

Israel Police said in a statement, “We will operate with zero tolerance against anyone who attempts to disrupt society, and against anyone who attempts to harm security forces.”

Earlier in the week, two of the three Jewish minors who brutally murdered an Arab teen from Shuafat were convicted in the Jerusalem District Court. But the swift response of the Israeli justice system did little to stem the wave of Arab terror, much of which emanates from the neighborhood. That same day, Arab attackers in Shuafat hurled rocks at the Jerusalem Light Rail — which serves commuters in the neighborhood with a regular stop there — traumatizing passengers and damaging another car on the train, which again had to be taken out of service.

A number of the residents in the restive neighborhood have been deeply involved in terrorist activities and others, while not actively involved, have supported their actions. In a prelude to Operation Protective Edge in summer 2014 and during the war itself, Arab terrorists in Shuafat destroyed all the Light Rail stops in the neighborhood and also one in a nearby area.

Security Passes Being Scrutinized in Paris Airport

Tuesday, December 1st, 2015

Authorities have revoked security clearance tags from dozens of employees at the Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris and now are checking others, according to The Sunday Times of London.

The move came after officials after Da’esh (ISIS) and Al Qaeda terrorists slaughtered more than a dozen people in Paris last January.

But other workers continued to work.

It was found after the attack that 57 workers with access to aircraft were on a watch list of suspected terrorists. The report did not indicate exactly when that revelation became clear.

But an immediate review of the security passes of 86,000 airport workers will begin, starting with those of 5,000 security personnel, according to police official Philippe Riffault.

“It’s a question of verifying what these people might have been doing since they obtained their authorization,” Riffault said.

French police swept the airport under state-of-emergency powers after the Nov. 13 terrorist massacre in Paris.

The suicide bomber who blew himself up at the Bataclan concert hall in Paris got a job as a bus driver while on a terrorist watch list.
