Netanyahu Proposes Stiff Jail Sentences for Rock-Throwing Terrorists

Monday, October 27th, 2014

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu told senior officials on Monday to prepare a new law that would call for up to 20 years in jail for attacks cars and people with rocks and for economic sanctions on parents of offenders who are minors.

Anyone who has been on the receiving end of a rock, as most residents in Judea and Samaria outside of Maaleh Adumim have been, knows the sound of the body of their cars being smacked, a window smashed , or their own bodies being bloodied and their bones broken by rocks.

In the best possible scenario, the driver is able to continue to driving, often with one less window. In the worst possible case, the terrorist, often a teenager, gets “lucky” and the driver is killed after being struck by the rock or flying glass and losing control of the vehicle until it crashes.

In between there are hundreds of cases of people having being wounded, often for life.

Arabs popularized throwing rocks in the beginning of the intifada more than 25 years ago. They won great headlines for causing havoc on the highways and being faced by rifle-toting soldiers.

It is the kind of David and Goliath story that foreign media love, especially when it can disgrace Israel.

“Proportionate” response, the favorite policy of the West when the Arabs are losing, would require soldiers and police to lay down their weapons and throw rocks back at the youth.

But that won’t help because then the media would complain that the Israelis have an unfair edge, deploying adults against children. Furthermore, the police wear protective gear. It’s not a fair fight if Israeli wins.

Netanyahu has come up with a better weapon than guns – jail. Throwing rocks at passing cars is attempted murder, nothing more and nothing less.

The police and IDF have arrested thousands of rock throwers. Most of them are released after detention or simply given a slap on the wrist by the judicial system, which goes to the extreme to avoid convicting a minor for disturbing the peace.

Netanyahu’s directive would change that, assuming Peace Now does not win an appeal to the Supreme Court that jailing rock-throwers violates their human rights.

 

Police Car Caught on Film Running Away from Arab Stone Throwers

Sunday, October 26th, 2014

Residents of the Maaleh HaZeitim neighborhood, who have been under regular attack by Arab rioters, filmed a police car running away from Arab stone throwers last night in Jerusalem, Israel’s capital.

One resident told News 0404, “If they’re running away, who exactly will protect us… Instead of going forward…and pulling their guns and arresting a few of the rioters, they simply ran away.”

Arabs have been rioting in Jerusalem since the summer, and in the neighborhood of Maaleh HaZeitim, Arabs have been launching fireworks and throwing stones at Jewish Nursery school children.

As Maaleh HaZeitim is one of the hot-spots for Arab violence, it is not clear why the police in the car would not be prepared to deal with it.

Jerusalem Arabs Riot but Police Have the Upper Hand

Saturday, October 25th, 2014

Arabs in eastern Jerusalem resumed rioting Saturday night, and Border Police arrested four rock-throwers and firebombers in an effort to keep an upper hand and send a strong message to deter incitement for a widespread uprising.

Only one person,possibly an Arab, was injured by rock throwing.

Border Police in Beit Hanina arrested three teenagers who were spotted preparing to throw stones, and one firebomber in Silwan, across the road from the Old City, also was arrested.

Riots broke out in several neighborhoods, and Arabs continued to target the light rail system, which has become a symbol of the “enemy” even though it serves Arabs and Jewish.

Palestinian Authority violence has escalated the past several weeks, and several attacks have gone unreported.

Hamas is trying to light the match to inflame violence in eastern Jerusalem, and its senior official Mahmoud Al-Zahar said that violence is needed to put an end to “Israeli aggression.”

However, he added that Arabs in Judea and Samaria are also fighting the Ramallah-based Arab regime.

Israeli forces numbered in the hundreds Saturday night to deal with a smaller number of rioters. The situation definitely is far from calm, but so far, there is not enough fuel for a return to the widespread intifada of the late 1980s and of the Oslo War, AKA Second Intifada, that began in 2000.

The security fence has stopped deterred most terrorists, and mainstream Palestinian Authority Arabs don’t seem to have any burning desire for the establishment of the corrupt and mismanaged Palestinian Authority as a country.

They know they are more secure with Israel protecting them in case Hamas takes over.

Arab Violence in Jerusalem Forces Police to Return Law and Order

Thursday, October 23rd, 2014

Widespread violence and several riots that erupted in Arab neighborhoods in Jerusalem overnight following the murder of an American-Israeli baby have forced the police to fill the vacuum that the government created with a “hands-off” policy that have left both Arab and Jewish citizens at the mercy of terrorist anarchy.

Palestinian Authority media are claiming that Wednesday’s car-light rail collision that killed three-month-old Chaye Zisel Braun was an accident and not a terrorist attack.

The driver of the car has died from his wounds, but even if police ever will be able to conclude that he was not a terrorist – despite circumstantial evidence to the contrary – he definitely was a murderer.

The response from hundreds of Arabs was more attempted murder. They wounded a driver in a rock-throwing attack in eastern Jerusalem, and dozens of other Arabs rioted in Silwan, across the street from the Western Wall.

Little children in kindergarten in the Maaleh Zeitim were targets for rock-throwers Thursday morning.

Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat complained after the apparent terrorist attack on Wednesday that “Jerusalem has become unbearable” and that action must be taken to quell violence.

If the good mayor had said that two or three years ago, and not today and two or three months ago, perhaps the baby killed yesterday would still be alive.

Police have tried to ignore dozens of “almost murders” in dozens if not hundreds of ambushes of Jewish motorists who have been abandoned as sitting ducks for Arab rock-throwers in narrow streets in eastern Jerusalem, part of the city that the Palestinian Authority demands as part of its would-be state.

The Arab response to the shooting of the terrorist, or killer if you wish, is typical of a culture that dates back 3,500 years to Ishmael, of whom it is written in Genesis 16:12, “And he will be a wild donkey of a man; his hand will be upon all, and everyone’s hand upon him, and before all his brothers he will dwell.”

Other translations are less flattering, such as a modern Christian version that Ishmael “will be a wild man, as untamed as a wild donkey! He will raise his fist against everyone, and everyone will be against him. Yes, he will live in open hostility against all his relatives.”

Of course, this smacks of racism, just as Jews are “racists” because we are the “Chosen People” and just as anyone upholding the family unit is racist, and God is a racist for not creating men so they can give birth.

The Arab culture sucks up lawlessness. Not all Bedouin are thieves, but most thieves in the Negev are Bedouin. The Be’er Sheva court’s defendants are almost entirely Bedouin.

Not all Arabs are crazy drivers, but almost every crazy driver in Judea and Samaria is an Arab. Traffic fines are useless because the drivers simply don’t pay, assuming the drivers even have a license and assuming their cars are not stolen.

Violence is a way of life in the Palestinian Authority, and whenever anyone, especially Jews, try to clamp down, they are called “occupiers” and are met with more violence.

“The Palestinian Authority does and never has had a culture of peace,” Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon wrote on his Facebook page Thursday. “It is a culture of incitement and jihad against Jews.”

The Palestinian Authority has educated an entire generation to believe in terrorism, and the chance of widespread revolution cannot be totally dismissed, but it is highly unlikely.

The idea of a Palestinian Authority state, especially one that would pre-1967 neighborhoods in eastern, southern and northern Jerusalem, never has excited anyone except the sheikhs in Saudi Arabia and the Western no-nothings in Paris, Brussels, Oslo and Washington. The only thing that excites them is a chance to attack Jews.

Police always try to play down media inciters screaming “Intifada, Intifada” on a slow news day when they remember their agenda is to force a Palestinian Authority state down the throats of Israelis while they still are alive.

Arab MKs Protesting Temple Mount Restrictions for Muslims

Wednesday, October 15th, 2014

Following the escalating and extreme violence by Muslims on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, the police have restricted Muslims access to the site, in order to reduce the likelihood they will attack Jews, police and visitors on the Jewish people’s holiest site.

On Wednesday morning, 250 Arabs protested at the Lion’s Gate against the police restrictions, though not against the ongoing Arab violence and terror that caused the police to restrict their access in the first place.

The protesters on their parts said it was not fair that Muslims were restricted from praying on the Temple Mount while Jews were allowed to pray at the Kotel.

There are no known incidents of Jews throwing Molotov cocktails and cinder blocks at visitors to the Kotel.

Among the protesters were Arab MKs Jamal Zahalka, Basel Gatz and Hanin Zoabi. Ynet reports that the protesters clashed with police as they tried to get a group of Arab women onto the mount.

Also on the Temple Mount, a Jewish man was arrested for the crime of praying on the Temple Mount.

In this video, Moshe Feiglin talks about the Arab riots on the Temple Mount yesterday:

3 Wounded in Jerusalem Gas Station Explosion

Tuesday, October 14th, 2014

Israel Police are investigating the cause of an explosion at a Yellow Paz gas station Sunday night (October 12) in a residential Jerusalem neighborhood.

Three people were lightly wounded in the incident, which took place on a quiet, tree-lined street in an older, well-established part of the city.

The explosion sent flames shooting into the air at the gas station, located on Shivtei Israel Street. Fire fighters quickly got the blaze under control, and immediately shut down the gas and electricity lines.

Israel Police and special fire investigators have begun probing the cause of the explosion, which caused major damage to the facility. Arson has not been ruled out.

Early this morning (Tuesday, October 14) an explosion at a second gas station was reported at the Tzemach Junction on Route 90 just outside the southwestern outskirts of Jerusalem, in the direction of the Dead Sea, according to the Hebrew-language news website Rotter.net. There were no reports of injuries.
