Israel Arrests Arab Assailant Almost Three Years After Attack

Tuesday, August 16th, 2016

By Michael Bachner/TPS

Binyamin (TPS) – Israeli authorities recently arrested an Arab who stabbed and wounded a police officer in December, 2013 near the Israeli community of Geva Binyamin, the Shin Bet cleared for publication on Monday morning.

The suspect, 21-year-old Mohammed Younis Ali Abu-Hanak from Al-Abidiya near Bethlehem, was arrested almost three years after the attack.

Abu-Hanak revealed under questioning that his motive for committing the attack was to put an end to his hard life.

The investigation also revealed that Abu-Hanak purchased a kitchen knife on the morning of the attack and hid it inside his jacket. He boarded a taxi from Ramallah to Bethlehem in order to choose a random target for his attack. He decided to attack a policeman who was standing at a roundabout near the Jewish community of Geva Binyamin and the Palestinian Authority village of Jaba’.

Abu-Hanak exited the taxi, approached the policeman, and stabbed him once in the back, inflicting moderate injuries. He then fled the scene and managed to evade the authorities for two and a half years before finally being apprehended.

The Shin Bet said in a statement that it will “continue to operate with all its available resources to prevent terror attacks and to bring the perpetrators to justice, even when a long time has gone by since the attack was committed.”

Report: Undercover Policeman Incited Rightwing Jews to Harm Arabs

Sunday, June 19th, 2016

According to the Honenu legal aid society, Israel’s secret police has been operating at least one agent provocateur in an attempt to trap rightwing activists in the performance of extremist acts. Honenu has dubbed the undercover officer Champagne 2.

Shortly after the capture of Prime Minister Rabin’s murderer Yigal Amir, Israelis learned that Amir had been guided and controlled by a Shabak agent named Avishai Raviv, whose code name was Champagne and whose mission, many believed, was to encourage and fabricate activities of right-wing extremists. He was, for instance, the behind the poster showing Rabin in an SS uniform, just days before the murder, making sure it appeared on the news. And there was testimony cited in at least one newspaper article that Raviv was urging Amir to kill the prime minister. In his trial, Raviv was able to get off by saying he was merely carrying out his duties as an agent provocateur.

The new undercover agent provocateur has been posing for two year as a member of the Lehava organization, and used his fake identity to incite Jewish activists over Whatsapp and Facebook. The officer was exposed after he had tried last week to recruit an informer from a Samaria community. The latter called on Honenu for legal advice and informed the officer he was not interested.

The officer contacted him for about 15 times from two different phone numbers, which the resident kept on his smartphone. Later, when the same resident entered a Whatsapp group where he is a member, he spotted the same number the officer had used to call him, but now the user was presenting himself as one of the gang of Jewish extremists, just aching to hurt himself some Arabs.

The Samaria resident approached the group leader who quickly removed the officer, and the latter protested, claiming that his name was Miro Amzaleg and that he was a Lehava activist from Jerusalem. But when he was challenged to come up with anyone who knows him in Lehava he was only able to provide names of people he had been in virtual contact with.

The undercover officer’s Facebook page, which has since been taken down, offered posts containing incitements against Arabs. One shares a story about the Jewish man who later burned down the bilingual school in Jerusalem, with the comment: No Arabs, No Terror Attacks. According to Honenu, the fact that the post was dated about a month before the arson might suggest that the agent provocateur was involved in inciting the man, Shlomi Tuito, to carry out the crime. There were several other posts that could be seen as calculated provocations of young and easily influenced fringe Jews, similar in profile to Yigal Amir.

One telling episode had to do with the picture of Rabbi Kahane’s grandson Meir Ettinger on the morning of his release from administrative detention earlier this month, a picture which the undercover officer posted online ahead of all the other media. The fact was Ettinger had been let out of jail earlier than scheduled and was left standing there, waiting for his family to come pick him up. No one else had the picture, and when reporters and activists asked “Amzaleg” how he got it, he said his relative, a prison guard, had sent it to him. But a quick investigation revealed that Ettinger had been standing in the company of three police detectives who handed him his release papers and shot his pictures from every conceivable angle. The detectives were the only possible source for the image, and when the agent posted it he outed himself.

Honenu is in the process of examining two-years’ worth of correspondence the officer had kept with activists, and they intend to turn them into a lawsuit. The officer is known to Honenu as a recruiter of Jewish residents of Judea and Samaria to inform on their neighbors. That part, as repulsive as it may sound, is not illegal. However, Honenu officials contend, for the same police officer to be involved in inciting young Jews to commit acts of violence against Arabs should be grounds for suspension, followed by dismissal.

Police on Sunday refused to comment on intelligence operations.

France: Policeman and Wife Murdered; ISIS Takes Credit

Tuesday, June 14th, 2016

A French policeman, Jean-Baptiste Salvaing, 42, was stabbed multiple times, and his wife and son were taken hostage in their home in Magnanville, 35 miles north-west of Paris, on Monday night.

The attacker, a neighbor, stabbed the policeman outside the man’s home. Witnesses say the attacker may have shouted “Allahu Ackbar”, according to an AFP report. The attacker then entered their home and took the wife and son hostage.

At some point, the attacker also killed the policeman’s wife. Their couple’s 3-year-old son was rescued alive by a French SWAT team who stormed the house around midnight.

Reports say the man claimed allegiance to ISIS.

The Isis-linked Amaq News Agency says ISIS has taken credit for the attack, “Islamic State fighter kills deputy chief of the police station in the city of Les Mureaux and his wife with blade weapons near Paris.”

The attacker was identified as Larossi Abballa (25), who already had an arrest conviction for terror, according to The Guardian.

He was sentenced to 3 years in prison, six months suspended in 2013 for helping to recruit jihadists linked to Pakistan and Afghanistan.

And had recently been under police surveillance.

The Policeman Let the Terrorist Into His Home

Policeman Lets Sarona Terrorist into his Home, Leaves, Then Realizes What He’s Done

Friday, June 10th, 2016

This story should be tagged under Soon to Be a Major Motion Picture: a policeman who lives near the area where the shooting attack took place Wednesday night let one of the terrorists into his home and gave him water, unaware of his identity.

The encounter took place while the terror event was still in full swing, as both cousin terrorists from the Yatta Village near Hebron in Judea were trying to flee the scene. One of them, who had already dumped his empty Carl Gustav submachine gun and was unarmed, ran with a group of fleeing civilians who had no clue about his identity—to remind you, both killers were dressed up in evening suits. As he was running, the terrorist reached an apartment building with a group of residents hanging out near the entrance and asked them for some water. The policeman, who lives in the building, took him upstairs, sat him down, gave him a glass of water and went outside to join the manhunt — leaving the terrorist with his wife and other family members.

The policeman ran outside and joined the chase, when shortly thereafter he came upon the other terrorist, who had been neutralized and lying on the ground. Only then, when he saw the killer dressed in the same impeccable suit as the swarthy man he had left at home, did it dawn on him that his family was now playing host to a deadly terrorist.

According to the policeman’s testimony, he ran home very fast, taking along a few fellow policemen. Opening his apartment door, he realized to his relief that all was still well — the terrorist was unarmed and probably did not want to risk an attack on the family, so he remained seated quietly next to his glass of water. The policeman quickly overtook him and sent out word to the rest of the force.

At that point, one of the cops who had come into the apartment with his gun drawn behind the first policeman returned the weapon to its holster and let out a bullet which ricocheted and lightly injured the hero of our story.

The other terrorist was shot and neutralized near the Tel Aviv Cinematheque by a security guard employed by the Sarona mall. A consummate professional, the guard heard the shots, identified the suspect and hit him while the latter was running. With his cool response the security guard prevented a second bloodbath.

“I reached the source of the shooting with my weapon drawn and cocked and began scanning,” the security guard described the event to Channel 2 News. “I identified the terrorist as he was starting to flee and I hunted him… He didn’t stand a chance, I hunted him the way you hunt a rabbit… It’s what I’m paid for.”
