Arabs Riot at Rachel’s Tomb, Border Guards Wounded

Friday, August 8th, 2014

Two Border Guard security personnel were lightly wounded while trying to control a mob of some 600 Palestinian Authority Arabs rioting Friday afternoon near Rachel’s Tomb.

Three of the rioters were allegedly shot in the legs with rubber bullets, according to the Hebrew-language 0404.co.il website.

The rioters burned tires and hurled firebombs and rocks at the Border Guards, who at first used standard crowd control methods but then allegedly opened fire when all else failed.

Security personnel succeeded in dispersing most of the mob but about 100 of the hard-core rioters remained into the early evening hours.

Hamas terrorists in Gaza have urged Arabs in Israel to riot and attack Jews in as many ways as possible, to encourage a budding third intifada.

The tomb of the Jewish matriach, one of the holiest sites in Judaism, is located on the outskirts of Bethlehem, barely five minutes south of Jerusalem.

Due to Palestinian Arab violence, Israeli authorities were forced to build high, strong walls around the once-modest tomb, transforming it into a virtual fortress in order to protect the Jews who visit the site to pray.

Ma’ale Adumim Mayor Beefs Up Security After Terror Attack

Wednesday, August 6th, 2014

Ma’ale Adumim Mayor Benny Kashriel has beefed up security following an attempted terror attack Tuesday, foiled by a security guard at the entrance to the community.

The guard fired at the terrorist but apparently missed; as he fought him off, the terrorist stabbed him and then fled from the Jerusalem suburb, home to nearly 40,000 people.

Three suspects were arrested later the same day in connection with the attack in the nearby Arab village of Azariyya.

Kashriel told residents that 20 new Border Guard officers have already been paired with the city’s regular police officers at checkpoints and in patrols around the city.

In a statement on the municipal website, Kashriel thanked local and national security officials for their rapid response to Tuesday’s terror attack. He added that he visited the security guard who was wounded and spoke with his family and the chief of surgery at Hadassah’s Mt. Scopus Medical Center campus, who said the victim was in “good condition.”

“I also have no doubt the terrorist will be caught,” he said. “I have faith in our security forces and I am sure we will hear good news soon,” he added.

Was Ramle ‘Hit-and-Run’ a Traffic Accident?

Tuesday, August 5th, 2014

The Jewish world is buzzing with questions about the motivation of an Arab woman who was the driver in a ‘hit-and-run’ that injured a Jewish woman and her small children Monday night in the mixed Jewish and Arab city of Ramle.

The Jewish woman, had stopped at a pedestrian crossing at around midnight with her three children, ages 6, 5 and 4 months old, while walking home.

The story being flashed around Israel on WhatsApp, Tuesday and even reaching to the U.S. is that the female Arab driver, who arrived at the crossing, had gestured for the little family to cross the street and trustingly, the woman began to cross. But as she and her children reached the middle of the road, the Arab driver accelerated her vehicle and ran the family over, injuring all four.

Police reportedly were searching for the driver and her vehicle. But on Tuesday afternoon, Israel Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld informed JewishPress.com in an SMS exchange that police have classified the incident as a “regular road accident.”

When asked whether the perpetrator had been arrested, Rosenfeld did not reply — leaving open the question as to whether, in fact, an investigation into the incident has even really been launched.

On September 23, 2011, Kiryat Arba resident Asher Palmer was driving on Highway 60 with his infant son Yonatan when he was attacked by two Arab road terrorists. The rocks that were hurled at his vehicle caused him to lose control of the car, which then overturned and crashed. Both Palmer and his baby boy died in what police immediately classified the incident as nothing more than a motor vehicle accident. Neighbors and first responders to the scene knew better, however, and persisted in pressuring police and other government officials into pursuing a more active probe.

Subsequent investigation with strong ongoing pressure from activists revealed the true evidence, including the actual rock that had smashed the windshield and landed in the car. Eventually intelligence ferreted out the perpetrators, who ultimately confessed to the crime — with pride — in an Israeli courtroom.

Israel is now into its third intifada. Quite a number of Palestinian Authority Arabs — and some who are citizens of Israel, even — are doing their best to support Hamas in its efforts to annihilate Israel and its Jewish residents.

The circumstances surrounding the incident in Ramle are still not clear — but it is patently obvious that given the current situation, an investigation is warranted. The question is, are police just too overwhelmed, politically and in terms of human resources, to be able to carry that out?

CANCELLED: Police Looking for Possible Kidnapped JM Boy

Wednesday, July 16th, 2014

UPDATE: Police have cancelled the search. They’ve concluded there was no kidnapping.
——

Two women in the Ramot neighborhood of Jerusalem reported to police they saw an 8 year old boy get into a white car, either a Mazda or a Toyota, with 2 Arab men, and they suspect it was a kidnapping.

It happened in front of 17 Mirski Street at approximately 5pm. The witnesses said he got into the car willingly.

Since the kidnapping of Gil-ad Shaar, Naftali Frenkel and Eyal Yifrach, police are taking kidnapping alert calls very seriously, and they have begun a search.

Police have set up checkpoints in the Binyamin region and Gush Etzion, as well as in key locations in Jerusalem.

As of now, there are no reports of any missing children in the neighborhood.

Police: We Failed During Gil-Ad’s SOS Call

Monday, July 14th, 2014

Police Chief Yohanan Danino told the Knesset Internal Affairs and Environment Committee that 540 Israeli Arabs have been arrested during rioting following the kidnap/murder of Mohammed Abu Khdeir.

In addition, Assistant Commander Moshe Barkat noted the police  emergency hotline’s “failure” to deal with the SOS call from Gil-Ad Sha’ar on June 12. He said officers manning the hotline should have dealt with the call as an emergency.

Barkat also said that officers that failed to act appropriately had been summoned to the police disciplinary committee. Nanino added that officers are scheduled to be fired, but added that like all employees in the State of Israel they have rights and that those rights must be respected.
