Tuesday, November 18th, 2014

IDF Radio reports the police have issued a gag order on the photos and identities of the terrorists who committed this morning’s terror attack in Jerusalem — despite the photos and names of the terrorists being all over social media.

Credit Card Extortion Ring Captured

Sunday, November 16th, 2014

Israel Police’s Lahav 433 cyber-crime unit, and other Israeli national security organizations as well as Thailand’s police department collaborated to take down an extortion ring that threatened not just the Leumi Card credit card company, but possibly Israel’s economic stability.

Eight people were arrested, seven in Israel and the reported ringleader, who was in Thailand.

The group put together an elaborate scheme to extort millions of dollars from the credit card company. If they didn’t receive the payment, they threatened to release and sell the information on 2 million active Israeli Leumi Card credit card users that they had copied and stolen from the company.

All eight were former employees of the Leumi Card credit card company.

Some of them had infiltrated into the company to be hired into key positions where they would have access to the needed data to pull off the extortion scheme.

It took two weeks From the time Leumi Card company received the threat until the police arrested the suspects. The spokesperson for Lahav 433 said it took an incredible amount of detailed work to track down the suspects over the internet.

It would have been the biggest cyber-crime ever committed in Israel.

What is not known yet is how the group actually had access to the data which should have been encrypted and restricted.

Arab Terrorist Tried to Pose as Israeli Hitchhiker

Thursday, November 13th, 2014

An Arab terrorist who police nabbed on Wednesday before he could stab a Jew posed as a hitchhiker but gave away his disguise when he stumbled in Hebrew as a Jewish driver offered him a ride.

The Jewish driver notified police of the suspicious “hitchhiker,” and officers arrived at the bus stop near the Jewish community of Dolev in Samaria. After a quick search, they discovered he was carrying a knife and a screwdriver.

He confessed to police that he was planning to ride to stab Jews on his way Jerusalem.

In Hebron, a man in his 20 raised the suspicion of Border Police officers at the Cave of the Patriarchs, where stabbing attempts are frequent.

The man was searched and was found to have been carrying a commando knife.

He showed signs of having drunk alcohol, which is forbidden by Muslim law, which does not recognize the Israeli law against carrying knives to carry out terrorist attacks.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu this week ordered all security units to go on high alert to try to prevent the recent wave of terrorism from spreading.

 

 

 

Another Day, Another Arab Riot

Sunday, November 9th, 2014

Jerusalem Arabs hurled rocks at Israel Police on Sunday (Nov. 9) in the capital’s eastern neighborhood of Issawiya.

Masked Arab men gathered in a mob rioted during the afternoon hours to clash with Israeli security forces.

Police used riot control measures to disperse the mob.

More than 1200 police officers were deployed in Arab villages, towns and cities on Sunday, and Israel Police operated on high alert throughout the country.

Clashes also continued between Arab residents of Kfar Qana and Israel Police, with protesters waving Palestinian Authority flags while blocking entrance and access road to the town, setting tires ablaze and hurling stones at police. At least 20 rioters were arrested, including eight minors.

Riots were also reported in Kafr Qasim, and at a police station in Sha’ab, the Israeli flag was removed and replaced by that of the Palestinian Authority.

Israel Police are investigating the incident.

A number of highways were temporarily closed due to rocks, flaming tires or attacks along the roads, including Routes 65, 444 and 754. Two passengers were wounded on an Egged bus traveling from Hadera to the Galilee on Route 65 when the vehicle came under attack from Arabs hurling rocks. Police searched for the attackers but have not yet made an arrests.

Some 30 Arabs placed rocks and blazing tires on Route 754 near Nazareth, Ynet reported, forcing authorities to temporarily close the road in order to clear the obstacles.

Blazing tires created more obstacles on Route 444 near the Taibe Bridge in the “Triangle” area. One arrest was reported by police, as security personnel dispersed rioters.

The outskirts of Moshav Mei Ami were set ablaze by an Arab firebombing (Molotov cocktail). Police stationed in the Arab city of Umm al-Fahm launched an investigation into the incident.

The clashes followed protests by university students in Tel Aviv and Haifa over the death of an armed terrorist who threatened police in a vehicle late last week.

The terrorist, a 22-year-old Israeli Arab, attempted to attack police officers with a knife while they sat in their vehicle, slamming his weapon on the window.

When he was some distance from the vehicle, one of the police officers shot and killed him.

Intifada Spills into Northern Israel after Police Kill Attacker

Saturday, November 8th, 2014

Arab rage spilled over into the Galilee in Northern Israel Saturday, one day after police killed an armed Arab who attacked their vehicle but who is shown in a video running away from police when an officer shot him in the back and killed him.

The mayor of the city accused police of “murder in cold blood,” but the police said their officers were in a life-threatening situation because the attacker was armed with a knife. He was identified as 22-year-old Kheir Hamdan

Former and current Knesset Members as well as current Arab MKs joined thousands of protesters Saturday afternoon in a protest that turned into a full-scale riot, complete with rock-throwing and firebombs aimed at police as well as burning tires in the streets.

MK Ahmed Tibi demanded the arrest of the police officer who shot and killed Hamdan.

The police version of the incident is that Hamdan tried to stab officer when they attempted to arrest him at his house for allegedly having thrown a stun grenade. Police official said that officers fired warning shots in the air and then shot and killed him when he ignored the warning.

The video, as seen below and probably edited, only shows that Hamdan banged on a police vehicle and then ran away when officers got out of their vehicle and shot him in the back as he fled.

The Justice Ministry said it will investigate police behavior.

Even if the video turns out to be a “Pallywood” edit of an obvious life-threatening attack on police, history has shown that rioters will believe what they want to believe.

This does not automatically acquit the police, whose behavior in protests has often proved to be totally unprofessional.

Kfar Kanna was quiet Saturday night as Hamdan’s funeral took place, but more violence is expected later in the night or tomorrow.

Jewish Home party leader Naftali Bennett commented, “A crazed and Arab terrorist, armed with a knife, attempted to murder police officers who were in their vehicle. The reaction of the police was exactly what should be expected by security officers. It is necessary to investigate, but this was not a cold-blooded murder, and there is no room to abandon police officers who are deployed to defend us.

“If we do not support them, we will see more and more murders with knives, firecrackers and hit-and-run terrorists.”
