Dozens of Jerusalem Arabs Attack Police with Rocks

Sunday, July 12th, 2015

Dozens of Arabs in the Jerusalem neighborhood of Shuafat attacked Border Police with rocks late Sunday afternoon during an arrest of a suspect.

Border Police employed riot-dispersing methods and seriously injured one of the rioters with a “sponge bullet” when the mob tried to prevent officers from leaving the area with the suspect.

There may be complaints that the police response was “disproportionate” because they did not retaliate with rocks.

Police Arrest Terrorist North of Jerusalem

Thursday, July 9th, 2015

A 17-year-old Palestinian Authority terrorist was arrested on Thursday evening at the Raas checkpoint, north of Jerusalem, according to a Tazpit report.

Security forces at the checkpoint noticed the man’s very suspicious movement towards them. When they ordered him to stop, the terrorist pulled out a knife and continued towards the security forces. The security forces responded by brandishing their weapons towards him.

The terrorist-in-the-making then surrendered and was arrested.

During the initial interrogation, the man admitted he arrived at the checkpoint in order to stab someone in a terror attack.

Taxpayers Fork Out $90,000 for Police Commissioners’ Farewell Party

Thursday, July 2nd, 2015

A professional singer and stand-up comedian cost the taxpayers $16,000 (70,000 shekels) for appearing Wednesday night at a farewell party for outgoing Police Commissioner Yochanan Danino.

That is only a small part of the taxpayers’ money at work, so to speak. Total cost of the festival was $90,000 (370,000) shekels, part of which went for 200 copies of a book written in his honor and distributed to guests

The title of the souvenir is “My father, the Police Commissioner.”

A group of police officers boycotted the party.

The book and the officers’ absence  say volumes about Danino and the police department, whose trust from the people is somewhere around zero following several sex scandals and years of gross politicization when it comes to crime. Hundreds of complaints have charged that police officers arrest Jews on trumped-up charges when they file complaints of assault against police or Arabs.

Several of the invited guests who did not show up last night included former senior police officers and commissioners, who were quoted by Haaretz as saying that Danino “frequently speaks as if there were no commissioners before him.”

Several of them had left the police force out of frustration that Danino turned the police department into a club for his cronies.

Journalists were barred from covering the party .

Danino told Channel 2 television last week that he was not involved in planning the party, but officials in his own office said that the whole idea of the party was Danino’s and that he planned it.

The party concluded month-long “farewell events’ for Danino throughout the country.

The total cost to taxpayers is not known but obviously is far higher than the cost of last night’s gala.

Terror Attack Stymied at Temple Mount in Jerusalem

Sunday, June 7th, 2015

Israel Police prevented another young Arab from carrying out a deadly terror attack Sunday (June 7) on the Temple Mount in the Old City of Jerusalem.

A young man approximately age 25 moving around furtively aroused the suspicions of the security unit guarding the Temple Mount as he approached the Cotton Gate leading to the holy site.

The suspect apparently had second thoughts, however, and instead decided to leave the area when he noticed that his behavior had attracted the attention of police guarding the area. Nevertheless, police officers passed along the information by radio to other security personnel deployed in the area — and it’s a good thing they did.

Police who were stationed at the Iron Gate spotted the suspect once again trying to enter the Temple Mount. This time they detained him and called the commander attached to the site, Police Superintendant Shlomi Tobol, who began to ask the young man what he was doing there.

It’s important to know that many Israeli police officers — especially those assigned to guard the holy sites in Jerusalem and others deployed to areas with Arabic-speaking populations — speak fluent Arabic and in fact are also intimately familiar with the culture. There is a right way and a wrong way to behavior, to converse, and to ask a question in any society and when trying to get information to prevent a deadly terror attack, a chat with a witness or even a possible suspect is no exception.

This young suspect told Tobol during the extended conversation that followed that he had “formed within his heart” a resolve to carry out a terror attack at the site and stab one or several Jews, after having completed his final prayers at the Temple Mount. He also confessed to having purchased a knife and other equipment for the attack, which he had hidden away in a bag under a bush near the Damascus Gate in the Old City. After searching the area, police found knives and screwdrivers with which the suspect claimed he intended to carry out his attack.

The suspect was arrested and taken to the “David Precinct” for further questioning. The lethal evidence was confiscated as well.

The Temple Mount police commander praised the members of his unit for their quick and effective action. “I am proud of our police who were alert and operated smoothly to prevent this threat, which could have instead ended in a deadly terror attack,” Tobol said.

It’s unusual for the police to detain the Muslims who harass visitors on the Temple Mount.
