Friday, April 24th, 2015

Updated: 9:43 AM

An Israeli man was found stabbed and tied up in the trunk of his stolen car in the A-Tur neighborhood of Jerusalem, according to a Tazpit News Agency report.

The victim, a 60-year-old Israeli man, was kidnapped from Tel Aviv. His assailants were two Arabs, ages 19 and 20 from Jerusalem’s A-Tor neighborhood.

Early Friday morning, a police patrol noticed a suspicious vehicle, thinking it may have been stolen they approached it in their patrol car, at which point the car fled off into the nearby A-Tor neighborhood.

The police chased the car through the A-Tor alleyways.

During the chase, the car hit a few cars parked in an alley and got stuck. The two suspects ran out of the car, and the police caught them.

Hearing cries for help coming from the car, one of the policemen opened the trunk and found the Israeli man inside, tied up and bleeding.

An initial investigation has uncovered that the car belonged to the kidnapped man. The two Arabs had approached the man in Tel Aviv asking for his assistance with food and a place to sleep.

The man let them into his car to help them, and the two proceeded to rob him, in the process, stabbing him multiple times. T

hey drove off in his car, and at some point threw him in the trunk as they continued on to Jerusalem.

The man was taken to the Hadassah Ein Kerem hospital emergency room. His wounds are not life threatening.

The police have not yet decided if this was a terrorist attack, or a robbery gone bad.

But how often do car thieves stab and kidnap their victims and try to drive them to Jerusalem in the stolen car?

Thursday, April 16th, 2015

Jerusalem police Thursday afternoon finally stopped being politically correct and said that they “suspect” the driver who ran into and killed a pedestrian in on Wednesday acted as a terrorist.

The Jewish Press reported here this morning that Shalom Yochai Cherki died of his injuries Thursday morning after the Arab driver plowed his car into pedestrians at a bus stop at French Hill.

Two others, one a 20-year-old woman who is in serious condition, were injured.

The driver claimed the incident was an accident, and police said they were investigating if terror was a motive. Eyewitness reports left little doubt that the driver intentionally ran into the people, and police finally told a Jerusalem court early this afternoon they “suspect” the driver is a terrorist.

The 37-year-old Arab from New Anata in eastern Jerusalem was placed under house arrest by a Jerusalem court.

Shirki, a tour guide, is to be buried early Thursday evening. His family stated he was murdered.

Man Arrested at Temple Mount Entrance with Contraband

Sunday, March 22nd, 2015

A 27 year old Jewish man was arrested on Sunday morning at the entrance to the Temple Mount.

Police found Tefillin on his person.

When searching the young Jewish man before he went up onto the Temple Mount, the police discovered the man was wearing Tefillin on his arm.

Tefillin are generally worn during prayers. Despite an explicit court order allowing it, the police do not allow Jewish prayer on the Temple Mount, the Jewish people’s holiest site, for fear of upsetting the Arabs.

A lawyer from the Honenu organization is working to free the man from jail.

The police confiscated the car for 30 days, for what they said was leaking oil and broken signal lights.

Court Rules: Police Must Allow Jewish Prayer on Temple Mount

Monday, March 2nd, 2015

The police “must ensure that Jews can pray on the Temple Mount” – that was the ruling of Judge Malka Aviv in the case of Yehuda Glick vs. the Israeli Police.

On a number of occasion the police have banned Rabbi Yehuda Glick from ascending up to the Temple Mount.

Rabbi Glick told JewishPress.com that he regularly leads tour groups up to the Temple Mount, and not being allowed up prevented him from earning a living.

Rabbi Yehuda Glick took the police to court and sued for damages. On Sunday the court decided in Glick’s favor.

But the bigger victory was the court’s criticism of the police’s actions towards Jews on the Temple Mount and the explicit ruling that the police must ensure that Jews be able to pray on the Jewish people’s holiest site.

The police may choose to appeal both the financial award and the ruling, but the question remains, until the appeal, will the police respect the court’s ruling and ensure that Jews can pray on the Temple Mount?

In November, an Islamic terrorist shot Yehuda Glick 4 times at close range in Jerusalem in a failed attempt to assassinate him.

The terrorist was killed the next morning at his Jerusalem home when security forces tried to arrest him.

Last week, US Congressman Dennis Ross when up to the Temple Mount and found himself harassed by the Islamic extremists on the Jewish holy site.

At Least 22 Egyptian Soccer Fans Killed By Police

Monday, February 9th, 2015

Published at Jewish Business News

At least 22 Egyptian soccer fans were killed Sunday night, when security forces wouldn’t let them into a stadium, Reuters reported. A riot broke out outside a major soccer game between two Cairo teams, Zamalek and Enppi. Fans told Egyptian TV that the death toll was higher. Egypt’s health ministry said dozens of people were injured.

Security officials speaking on condition of anonymity told journalists that Zamalek fans tried to force their way into the stadium without tickets, which started the clashes with police.

Police used teargas to disperse the crowd. Apparently, some fans were killed in the stampede that resulted from police teargas. Doctors told Reuters the deaths were the result of suffocation.

Egypt’s interior ministry said in a statement: “Huge numbers of Zamalek club fans came to Air Defense Stadium to attend the match … and tried to storm the stadium gates by force, which prompted the troops to prevent them from continuing the assault.”

Egypt law limits the number of people allowed into soccer gamed since a 2012 riot at a Port Said stadium when more than 70 people were killed. But fans have been ignoring the law, and trying to storm soccer overcrowded stadiums.
