Arab Terrorist Shot Near Rachel’s Tomb in Bethlehem

Wednesday, September 2nd, 2015

At around 9 PM, Border Police in the Bethlehem neighborhood of El Ayaadah, which is adjacent to Rachel’s Tomb but on the other side of the wall, shot and wounded an Arab teenager who was about to throw a bomb at them, according to the police spokesperson.

The terrorist was shot in the lower extremities before he could throw his pipe bomb. The terrorist was treated on site, and then transported to Hadassah Ein Karem hospital.

The bomb was neutralized by Border Police sappers.

No one else was injured in the attack.

As expected, the residents of El Ayaadah began rioting and throwing stones, and police used anti-riot gear to disperse them.

Ambassador to UN Prosor Expects It to Condemn PA Terror

Wednesday, July 1st, 2015

Israeli Ambassaodr Ron Prosor to the United Nations wrote to the undistinguished body Tuesday that he expects it to condemn the latest Palestinian Authority terrorist attack, which killed Malachi Moshe Rosenfeld and wounded three others Monday night.

Prosor noted that since the beginning of the Muslim month of Ramadan, which they consider so holy that it drives them into a frenzy to try to murder Jews and Christians, “There has been a dramatic increase in attacks against Israelis – part of a global surge of terrorism.”

He stated:

I write to you for the second time in less than two weeks to ​inform you that yet another citizen of Israel has been brutally murdered by Palestinian terrorists…..

Each day seems to bring with it news of a shooting attack, or a stabbing. Just yesterday, a terrorist stabbed a 19-year old female soldier next to Rachel’s Tomb, causing severe injuries. These attacks are a direct result of incitement by the Palestinian Authority in the media and in its education system. Even after this latest incident, the leadership of the PA remains silent, failing to condemn the murder of innocent people.

Prosor noted that the United Nations condemned “in the strongest terms” last week’s terror stacks in France, Tunisia and Kuwait.”

Fulfilling his role as ambassador, he went through he motions to demand that the United Nations also condemn the murders of Jews by Palestinian Authority terrorists, and wrote:

We join in your call that ‘those responsible for these appalling acts of violence must be swiftly brought to justice’  and that ‘these heinous attacks will only strengthen the commitment of the United Nations to help defeat those bent on murder, destruction and the annihilation of human development and culture.

I expect you to condemn the terrorist attacks in Israel in an equally decisive manner.

Terror is terror, no matter where it takes place, or who is harmed. The people of Israel deserve the same level of concern and empathy as any other people in the world.

Nice try, Ron.

If the United Nations does actually condemn the murder, it will be done so with a “balanced” resolution that also condemned the “war crime” that Rosenfeld committed by living in Samaria, which Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas has stated over and over will be an Arab country closed to Jews, a volition of the U.N. charter.



Netanyahu Warns World Leaders, ‘Stand Against Terrorism in Israel’

Tuesday, June 30th, 2015

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu called on the international community to also take a stand against terror when it occurs in Israel.

The prime minister made some pointed remarks prior to the start of his meeting with Italian Foreign Minister Paolo Gentilloni on Tuesday (June 30), commenting on two attacks the previous day that left five people seriously wounded – one in critical condition.

“I would like to send my best wishes for a rapid and full recovery to the Israeli citizens who were wounded last night in the terrorist attack near Shilo and to the soldier who was stabbed near Rachel’s Tomb,” he said.

“Attempts to attack us do not halt even for a moment. The ISA and IDF have foiled dozens of terrorist attacks since the start of the year and over 200 since the start of 2014.

“We are determined to take strong action and deal with the terrorists to the fullest extent of the law.

“The fact that up until now, the Palestinian Authority has not condemned these attacks needs to bother not only us, but also the international community as a whole,” he said pointedly.

Within minutes after a car bombing in Cairo on Monday night, the White House issued a statement condemning the terror attack that killed Egypt’s attorney general, Hisham Barakat, and nine other people.

Earlier in the day, A female Israeli soldier was stabbed by a Palestinian Authority terrorist at a checkpoint near Rachel’s Tomb and nearly died. She was rushed to a Jerusalem hospital where she remained unconscious until this morning. Late Monday night, four young Israeli men were shot in a driveby road terror attack on Highway 60 near Shvut Rachel, in the Binyamin district of Samaria east of Shilo — about 45 kilometers (28 miles) north of Jerusalem.

“Those who do not take an unequivocal stand against terrorism cannot wash their hands,” Netanyahu said.

Jerusalem Arabs Clash with Police in Old City after Jew Stabbed

Sunday, June 21st, 2015

A terrorist stabbed one person near Damascus Gate in the Old City of Jerusalem Saturday night, and other terrorists threw a firebomb at a bus near Nevi Yaakov in northern Jerusalem and a pipe bomb at Rachel’s Tomb.

Police clashed with rioters after the stabbing, according to Israel News Feed. Arabs hurled rocks at cars, wounding at least one person, and police carried out one arrest as of midnight Saturday.

The condition of the stabbing victim is not known, but he is believed not to have suffered serous wounds.

There are no known injuries in the firebombing of the bus and from the pipe bomb that was thrown towards Jews visting Rachel’s Tomb (Kever Rachel) near Bethlehem.

In Judea and Samaria, Palestinian Authority terrorists hurled rocks at passing Jewish motorists near Dolev and in the same region where one or more terrorists murdered Daniel Gonen and wounded a companion while they were hiking. Gonen was buried in his home city of Lod, near Ben Gurion Airport, Saturday night.

The terrorist fled on foot but is believed to have been whisked away from the area in a car, leading police and the IDF to believe he did not act alone.

They also estimate that the attack was planned and was not a spur of the minute attack.

Palestinian Authority terrorists usually are more motivated during the Muslim month of Ramadan, which began Thursday. They have an added incentive because this month is the anniversary of the kidnap-murders of three yeshiva youth, whose attackers were located and killed in a shoot-out with the IDF last September.

Rachel’s Tomb – After

Tuesday, November 4th, 2014

Yesterday we showed you what Rachel’s Tomb used to look like.

Unfortunately, the Oslo Accords and “Peace” changed all that.

Nowadays Rachel’s Tomb is Fortress Rachel, in order to protect Jewish visitors from Arab terrorists.

The original building is not gone. The fortress was built over and around it.

The original Rachel's Tomb, now inside Fortress Rachel.

The original Rachel’s Tomb, now inside Fortress Rachel.


Just a reminder of what it looked like before the fortress:
