Machsom Watch Activist Shames Herself in Attempt to Harass IDF

Friday, July 3rd, 2015

A member of the leftist Machsom Watch distinguished herself in Hebron this week in an odd display of insensitivity to the very needs of those for whom she claimed to advocate.

As a result, Leah Shakdiel embarrassed herself rather than the IDF soldiers she had set out to harass.

Shakdiel appeared at the IDF checkpoint with several other members of the organization, but when the group began harassing the soldiers, a call was made to Arutz Sheva TV, and a camera crew was sent out to film the women at “work.”

The man confronting the women on camera is the person who received the call from the soldiers. Following is the video of the encounter with an English-language transcript of what transpired.

LS: Nurit, Nurit, come on please.

A7: She’s afraid, she’s afraid, she’s afraid, she’s afraid. That’s clear.

LS: Of course, because you are a frightening person.

A7: Right, thank G-d.

A7: Here, these sweet Arabs don’t scare you.

LS: No.

A7: A Jew like me frightens you.

LS: Right. Totally, yes. Because you are violent. Violent. They are not violent. They seek peace.

A7: I forget the name of your organization; I only remember your address. The Street of the Traitors, Number 6, right? Hah? You came to give a little ….

LS: See you later …

A7: No, not ‘see you.’ Good bye, but not ‘see you.’

LS: We will keep coming. Don’t worry.

A7: I am also here, you see. Thank G-d, it’s not empty. You come here once in a while when they pay you money. Ofer Ohana. You come here once in a long while, when you are paid money. You see? You see?

LS: The opposite. You are the one who is paid. You get a salary from the Jewish community in Hebron.

A7: You see the difference between me and you? Guys, hello. Do you see the difference between me and you? Look at you.

LS: You see. You receive a salary, that’s clear.

A7: Hanan, shalom. Look. Look at how she is drinking, right in front of Arabs who are fasting on Ramadan. Tell me, aren’t you ashamed? A little consideration. Even I am considerate of their feelings. Look at what a disgrace. Right? She has no shame. Look! You see? There you go.

Arab bystanders: Shame on you! Shame on you. We are fasting. This is Ramadan.

A7: There you go. You see? You’ve made my movie. Good for you. Thank you very much. Shame on you, really. A disgrace. You see? Even your friends…

LS: I understand that you like Ofer Ohana. So you help Ofer.

A7: Lady, I have enough friends here.

LS: You like him?

Arab bystanders: You should not have lifted the water.

A7: You see? You see?

LS: Okay, I really apologize. Him, you like?

A7: Thank you, friend (in Arabic, to Arab bystander)

LS: Him, you like? Him, you like? (incredulous, to Arab bystander)

Arab bystander: Yes. )

A7: You see?

LS: You don’t know him.

A7: You see what this is? You see what you’re doing here? You come and shame yourself. You should be ashamed of yourselves. You came to give ammunition to the enemy. You see? You came to aid the enemy and you emerged degraded, even in the eyes of the enemy.

A7: See how the Holy One, Blessed Be He is good and beneficent to everyone, and He Knows how to get rid of you. He knows how to humiliate you; He has brought you down to the dust. Get into the car and go. Stand before the IDF soldiers and tell them that you are shaming them.

Rock-Throwing Arab Killed While Attacking IDF Commander, Soldier Hurt at Qalandia

Friday, July 3rd, 2015

An army commander shot and killed a Palestinian Authority Arab on Friday morning who had attacked the brigade commander’s vehicle.

The incident took place northeast of Jerusalem near the Arab village of Al-Ram, security sources said.

IDF Binyamin Region Division Col. Israel Shomer was driving to the Kalandiya checkpoint separating northern Jerusalem from Ramallah when his vehicle was attacked.

An Arab mob began hurling rocks at the vehicle. In response, the commander fired warning shots, but when the attack did not abate he then opened fire at the attackers, killing one of them. According to security sources, it appeared the attack on the commander’s vehicle was a planned ambush.

The terrorist was identified as Muhammad al-Qasba, 17.

“The commander reacted exactly as expected, given that the incident presented an immediate risk to life,” the security source pointed out.

No injuries were reported among IDF personnel. However, the commander’s vehicle was damaged. A photo shows the windshield is smashed, with a large hole directly in front of the driver’s side – making the lethal nature of the threat obvious.

The IDF deployed a large force to the area following the attack and “return fire” since it is clear there will be more riots to follow in the wake of the attacker’s death.

One IDF soldier has already been injured — albeit lightly — by a bottle hurled by a Palestinian Authority Arab while she was guarding the Qalandiya checkpoint Friday morning. The soldier was treated at the scene for the injury.

Terror groups and extremist imams in the mosques have been whipping local Arabs and Palestinian Authority citizens into a frenzy of hatred for the Islamic holy month of Ramadan. In particular they seize the opportunity to address their followers in sermons during and after public prayers on Fridays at the mosques.

In addition, the Da’esh (ISIS) terror organization has also exhorted Muslims worldwide to “rise up” during Ramadan and attack local authorities – police, military personnel, political figures – and other targets.

The “Sinai Province” terror group (formerly Ansar Bayt al Maqdis) ambushed Egyptian military personnel and police in more than 15 separate attacks Wednesday, killing dozens and wounding more. The Egyptian army retaliated and eliminated more than 100 of the terrorists in a two-day operation in the Sinai Peninsula. The mop up is continuing with cooperation from Israel, which has also gone to high alert along its southern border with Sinai.

Last week there were three different ISIS attacks on three separate continents that left more than a hundred dead and several hundred wounded, almost all of them civilians.

Egypt vs. ISIS: Victory or Death

Thursday, July 2nd, 2015

Egypt said it is in total control of the Sinai the day after massive and well-coordinated attacks by the Islamic State (ISIS) on army and police posts.

Israel’s Channel 2 television reported that Israel has given the green light to Egypt to bring in heavy weapons into the Sinai, as required under the 1979 peace treaty that paved the way for Israel to surrender the Sinai a decade after the Yom Kippur War.

Positioning heavy weapons in the Sinai always carries the risk they can be used against Israel, but for the time being, Israel is the last enemy on Egypt’s mind.

Egypt may have done Israel a big favor by demanding the Sinai, which for years has become a fiefdom of Bedouin criminals and graduated into a no man’s land open for grabs by Bedouin, Hamas, Muslim Brotherhood and now ISIS terrorists.

Israel remains on high alert while Egypt said it will not stop its counter-offensive against Sinai jihadists until all of them are “eliminated.”

The ISIS attacks yesterday killed between a dozen and nearly 100 Egyptian army officers, soldiers and policemen, depending on whom you want to believe.

The numbers do not matter because the attacks on 15 different posts proved that ISIS is a very organized army.

Egyptian bombing raids continued into the night following the wave of attacks that were aimed at cutting off Rafah and El-Arish, which would have created a critical threat to Israel.

The IDF immediately shut down border crossings at Egypt and Gaza after the ISIS offensive, but re-opened the Kerem HaShalom crossing Thursday morning to allow trucks into Gaza with foods and merchandise..

Egypt will “exterminate” every jihadist in the northern Sinai, said its military spokesman.

Brigadier General Mohamed Samir said:

We control the situation in Sinai 100%.

The army claimed it killed more than 100 jihadists.

The cabinet of Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi Wednesday night approved urgent measures that call for “swift justice,” which can be translated as “don’t let democracy get in the way of survival.”

Four years after the rebellion against Hosni Mubarak, ostensibly because of his autocratic rule, his regime has been reincarnated.

Minister of Parliamentary Affairs and Transitional Justice Ibrahim Al-Heneidy said that In the absence of the parliament, Al-Sisi has legislative powers.

Coincidentally or not, ISIS attacked the day after terrorists killed Egypt’s state prosecutor Hisham Barakat, who was riding in a motorcade. Barakat had said that if former Muslim Brotherhood president Mohammed Morsi is sentenced to death, the execution will be carried out.

Heneidy said that terrorists will face harsher punishment, meaning execution or life in prison.

The death penalty also will apply to anyone who funds terror, a classification that puts Muslim Brotherhood officials on notice that Al-Sisi is bent on destroying the organization that ruled Egypt only one year ago.

The process of appeal also will be shorted. “Under the current law, defendants are allowed to appeal verdicts twice, but under the amended draft, this process will be shortened to give defendants the right to appeal the verdict just one time,” said Heneidy. Furthermore, if a higher court accepts an appeal, the regime will be able to call for a retrial in the Court of Cassation, whose decisions are final.

So what did the Arab Spring rebellion and the Obama administration achieve by getting rid of Mubarak?

If the State Dept. has learned that transplanting American democracy in the Muslim Middle East is like feeding Muslims ham and eggs during Ramadan, it was worth everything to teach Washington a lesson.

The odd are heavy that the State Dept. has not yet learned.

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.

 

 

Palestinian Authority Incites Summer Camp Kids with AK-47 Rifles

Tuesday, June 30th, 2015

The Palestinian Authority has copied Hamas’ version of summer camp for children and teaches them to dance in military uniforms, holding assault rifles and reciting anti-Zionist slogans.

The Palestinian Authority (PMW) has translated and published the gross incitement of terror by the Abbas regime, which still wins praise from the Obama administration for supposedly renouncing terror and ending incitement.

PA chairman Mahmoud Abbas has not uttered a word on last night’s Palestinian Authority terrorist attack in Samaria that left one person clinging to life and three others with moderate to serious injuries.

The names of the groups of children in the summer camps say it all. One group of 150 children is part of “Martyrs and Prisoners” and participated in the camp known as “Jerusalem in the Eyes of the Lion Cubs and Flowers of Palestine.”

And who runs it? Not the Boy Scouts.

It is operated by the Palestinian Authority’s National Security Forces in coordination with the youth movement in the Fatah party headed by Abbas.

The camp’s activities highlighted by Palestinian Authority media are not tennis or playing tag.

The little kiddies wore military uniforms for the final ceremony of an early summer camp and danced. No, they did not dance with each other. They danced with AK-47 assault files, one of Abbas’ tools to further the peace process and a probably violation of the Geneva Convention

PMW reported that the official Palestinian Authority daily, after Israelis Independent Day (Yom Ha’Atzmaut) included the Al-Asima bi-weekly in which an article referred to Israel as:

The so-called ‘Israel';
The occupation state;
The Zionist entity.

The article also described the Israeli army in the 1948 War for Independence as “90,000 terrorists.”

Another blatant incitement of violence was recorded on a Fatah posting on Facebook last month, where it referred to “the weapon with which we will confront our Zionist enemy.” An image showed from Fatah’s Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades with rifles and rockets:

The posting stated, as translated and published by PMW:

We promise that we will meet the enemy with two weapons in our hands – faith in Allah and in the inevitable victory, and the weapon with which we will confront our Zionist enemy. We will defend the honor of this Arab and Islamic nation. #Al_Aqsa_Martyrs’ Brigades.

Itamar Marcus, the founder and director of Palestinian Media Watch, stated:

The PA message to U.S. leaders in Washington is that they want peace. The PA message to their kids is that killing Israelis is heroic. It’s time the U.S. figured out which is the true message.

Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon directly charged the Palestinian Authority with inciting the latest round of terror that has escalated since the beginning of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan. He said:

People sit during the [Ramadan] holiday in their houses, watch television program and go outside and act [accordingly].

ISIS Beheads Two Women for Sorcery and Witchcraft

Tuesday, June 30th, 2015

The Islamic State (ISIS) has beheaded two women, along with their husbands, for allegedly practicing witchcraft and sorcery, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights

The executions took place Sunday and Monday in two different villages. ISIS previously has executed dozens of women, but usually for adultery and by stoning or by a firing squad.

It also has beheaded foreign women, but this is the first time the Satanic Islamic group has decapitated women for not following Sharia law.

For the record, according to the Observatory, ISIS had has been busy the past 12 months executing 86 women and 74 children among its 1,800 civilian victims,

The executioners earlier this month crucified two children for not fasting during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.

Its thirst for displaying the most terrifying pictures possible would seem to have left no room for more monstrosities, but that has been said in the past and has been disproven every time.

An Observatory official explained that the beheadings of the alleged sorcerers may have been an attempt to scare other women into showing up at mosques for prayers five times a day.

The world keeps trying to fight the ISIS from the air, but there has been no unified and determined alliance to make eliminating the insane group the most urgent and important priority.

The only unified mission that United Nations has been able to come up with is the U.N. Human Rights Council condemnation of Israel for the sin of Jews living in half of Jerusalem, the Golan Heights Judea and Samaria.

If there were only some way to get the Jews out of those areas, maybe the ISIS would disappear, right?

It sounds stupid and almost funny, but if you don’t think it is true, click here.

Turkey’s Jewish Community in Edirne Hosts Public Iftar Meal

Monday, June 29th, 2015

Led by the Chief Rabbi of Turkey, Ishak Ibrahimzadeh, the Jewish community in the northwestern province of Edirne hosted a public iftar meal for their neighbors last week.

The Jews hosted the meal which breaks the daily Ramadan fast in order to “express appreciation for the recent restoration of the historical Edirne Synagoge by the General Directorate of Foundations,” Turkey’s Hurriyet Daily News reported. The synagogue was reopened on March 26.

Some 700 people showed up for the meal on June 21, according to the newspaper, which quoted the chief rabbi as saying, “We thought that the most convenient way to thank people in Edirne was to share an iftar meal with them.

“We thank them all very much,” Ibrahimzadeh was quoted as saying. “We returned to Edirne and found a more beautiful home than our own.”

According to the report, “Leading figures of the country’s Jewish community personally served guests at the Ramadan fast-breaking dinner in a tent set up by the Social Solidarity Foundation.”

The head of the Edirne office of the General Directorate for Foundations, Osman Güneren, attended the event.

The Grand Synagogue of Edirne was the second-largest synagogue in Europe, built in 1907 after a massive 1905 inferno in the city destroyed 13 separate Jewish houses of worship.

Allegedly “abandoned in 1983 due to a lack of worshipers,” Hurriyet reported, The synagogue was transferred for use as a museum to the local Thrace University after its restoration by the General Directorate of Foundations. Sharp criticism from the Turkish Jewish community put a stop to that plan, however.

Nevertheless, last year Edirne Governor Dursun Ali Sahin decided to punish the local Jewish population for Israeli government measures that were necessary to stop Palestinian Authority Arab violence on the Temple Mount.

In retaliation, Sahin announced the synagogue would be turned into a museum, rather than be returned to the Jewish community for worship following its restoration.

The Edirne governor later claimed his suggestion had “no connection” to Turkish Jews and apologized for the proposal. Four months later, a government ceremony was held to herald the reopening of the synagogue for use by the Jewish community.
