The Arab Heroes Who Saved the Mark Family [video]

Monday, July 4th, 2016

After Jihadi terrorists opened fire on the vehicle of Miki Mark and his family on Friday near Otniel on July 1, 2016, the first people on the scene were an Arab couple from the village of Al-Farar, Islam Albid and his wife, a nurse.

Seeing the overturned car, they immediately stopped and managed to get a door open and pull the trapped and wounded children out of the car.

The couple got the wounded children into their car, tried to calm them down (in perfect Hebrew) and called for a Red Crescent ambulance.

Albid told Israel TV that he did it “for humanistic reasons and of course for Allah.”

A few minutes after that, an Arab doctor, Dr. Ali Abu Shruch, a kidney surgeon from the village of Dahariya in the southern Hebron Hills, drove by with his brother and his brother’s wife. They were on their way to pray in Jerusalem.

In an interview on Israeli TV (see video below), the doctor described how he assessed the situation, and freed the mother, Chava Marks, who was being suffocated by the seat belt.

At that point a Red Crescent ambulance and an IDF army jeep arrived. A MDA ambulance arrived a few minutes after that.

It was then, when the doctor checked the father, Miki Mark, that he realized this wasn’t an accident, but a terror attack and they had been shot, and Miki was dead.

During the interview, Dr. Abu Shruch emphasized that he wasn’t a hero. He has an obligation to treat everyone and as a doctor he doesn’t get involved in politics, he was doing his job.

He said his friends have all blessed him for his honorable actions.

The doctor passed a message along to the family saying, “I know the damage to the family is hard, but I want them to know I did all that I could to help them.”

After the funeral, members of the Mark family pointed out that the first people on the scene trying to help save them were Arabs, and one must not think all Arabs are terrorists.

There is hope after all.

Arab Rock-Throwers Injure Baby

Wednesday, October 7th, 2015

Palestinian Authority rock-throwing terrorists wounded a baby near the community of Maaleh Levunah in Samaria Tuesday might. Her father, who was behind the wheel, continued driving, and the baby was treated at Hadassah Hospital on Mount Scopus for light injuries.

Another motorist was pelted with rocks near Tekoa, in eastern Gush Etzion, after he stopped his car because of an accident.

Near Tekoa, a soldier was treated on the spot for light inquires after being by hit rocks.

A soldier was treated at Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital afar suffering light injuries from rock-throwing at Kalandia, near Ramallah.

Terrorists attacked a vehicle with a firebomb near Neguhot, south of Hebron, but no injuries or damage was reported. Further south, several vehicles sustained damage from rocks at the Zif junction, near the city of Yatta, on Highway 60 between Kiryat Arba-Hebron and Arad. The area has been relatively quiet for months until the latest escalation of violence.

Near the Tapuach Junction in Samaria, Border Police foiled a stabbing attack. They grabbed a terrorist when he refused to obey orders to stop for inspection. He dropped a knife, and officers found a second knife in his possession.

Palestinian Authority media reported that 129 Arabs were injured in clashes on Tuesday, but the numbers usually are exaggerated and often include people who were hurt in home and work accidents. A spokesman for the Red Crescent told the Ma’an News Agency that soldiers wounded eight rioters with live fire and 23 others with rubber bullets,

It added that the Palestinian Authority “has warned that “attacks by Israeli soldiers and settlers indicate the Israeli government is deliberately creating a situation of violence and instability that threatens to spiral out of control.”

Intifada Mark 3 – 12 Arab Suspects Arrested, 2 IDF Soldiers Wounded

Thursday, October 1st, 2015

Arrests of Palestinian and Israeli Arab suspects continue daily as the attacks on Israeli Jews and others mount up, clearly escalating into what is obviously a deliberately organized, calculated Intifada Mark 3.

Israeli forces arrested 12 security suspects in eastern Jerusalem late Wednesday and early Thursday morning. Six adults and six minors were taken into custody on suspicion of disturbing public order.

A Palestinian Arab terrorist attacked a group of soldiers overnight into Thursday near Einav, a religious Zionist community located north of Jerusalem in the Samaria (Shomron) region.

The attacker, who pulled a knife and attempted to stab the soldiers, was caught and injured in the attack. Medics from the Arab Red Crescent emergency response service treated the attacker at the scene before he was taken for question to security personnel.

Earlier Wednesday night, two Israeli soldiers were hit by flying rocks while contending with a riot at the Palestinian Arab village of Beit Omar, between Kiryat Arba-Hebron and Gush Etzion.

One of the soldiers was seriously injured; the condition of the second soldier is unknown. Both were evacuated to a hospital in Jerusalem.

The attack occurred while Palestinian Arabs were hurling rocks and firebombs (Molotov cocktails) and firing guns to mark the speech of Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas at the United Nations General Assembly. In his speech Abbas renounced the PA’s signing of the internationally-recognized 1994 Oslo Accords, declaring the PA no longer was bound by the mandates set forth therein.

Israeli motorists driving in two separate cars came under attack Thursday (Oct. 1) by Palestinian Arab terrorists on the road near Tekoa, in eastern Gush Etzion. A woman and a six-month-old baby, were wounded in the attack. Two other children were badly traumatized and required treatment for anxiety.

Both drivers continued to navigate their vehicles until they reached the safety of Tekoa, where they were able to inspect the damage to their cars.

Tekoa residents subsequently traveled to the Arab village near their town following the attack to protest the violence near their community. Clashes broke out between IDF soldiers and Arab residents after Tekoa’s military security coordinator fired into the air to warn Palestinian Arabs who had begun to throw stones at the vehicle of one of the families from Tekoa who came to protest.

Border Patrol Officers Resuscitate Electrocuted Arab Boy in Hebron

Thursday, November 6th, 2014

Very often the news media in Israel finds itself forced to report solely on negative events that swirl around relations between the IDF and the Palestinian Authority population.

As a result, it is rare that anyone gets a glimpse at the small daily events that comprise the other side of life in the PA — incidents that make it obvious that coexistence is already a reality and has been a natural truth for many years.

Every now and then, however, a journalist manages to catch a story in action and report it. Following is such an event, courtesy of the Tazpit News Agency

Yesterday (Wednesday) afternoon Border Guard police officers on routine patrol in the Hebron casbah (inner marketplace) spotted a Palestinian Authority Arab boy lying unconscious on the floor.

A police officer and a paramedic team quickly ran to the boy while reporting the incident and calling for additional medical help.

Early examination of the boy showed he was not breathing and had no pulse. The Border Guard officers began to resuscitate him by performing CPR, while removing obstacles in his mouth that had caused him to suffocate.

The Border Guards continued their lifesaving efforts for several minutes until the arrival of a Red Crescent medical team. The boy was then brought to the hospital.

The spokesperson for the Border Guards told the Tazpit News Agency that the boy had been electrocuted. However, thanks to the efforts of the police in those first minutes after the boy’s collapse, doctors in the hospital were subsequently able to save his life in the hospital.

Second Fire Bombing Arab Dies

Thursday, April 4th, 2013

An Arab teenager, Naji al-Balbisi, 18, died after being shot by Israeli forces during stone throwing and fire bombing clashes near Tulkarem, in Judea and Samaria, late Wednesday, Ma’an reported.

According to Ma’an, the IDF detained the body al-Balbisi for several hours, and then at 4 AM handed it over to the Red Crescent.

The teenager was the second to die after Israeli soldiers shot and killed a youth late Wednesday near a checkpoint in the Tulkarem area.

Soldiers in the area opened fire at Amer Nassar, 17, killing him instantly in response to Arab firebombing targeting a military post.

An Israeli army official said Arabs had attacked the post with firebombs.

“IDF soldiers responded by firing towards the attackers and identified a hit,” the IDF spokesperson stated, adding that “the circumstances are currently being reviewed.”

Close to a thousand people turned out on the streets of Tulkarem in the aftermath, according to Ma’an. Mourners carried the youth’s body as the crowd chanted slogans condemning the attack.

The incident came as clashes broke out in Judea and Samaria, especially in Hebron, between Israeli soldiers and Arabs protesting the death from cancer of a prisoner serving a life sentence in Israeli prison.

Maisara Abu Hamdiyeh was diagnosed with throat cancer and died after serving 10 years of his sentence, for attempted murder.

The Palestinian Authority has accused Israel of medical negligence, conveniently ignoring the fact that the prison service was in the process of approving an early release for Abu Hamdiyeh, on compassionate grounds.

Islamic Jihad Says Abbas Should Quit Talks with Israel

Monday, April 9th, 2012

The Palestinian news agency Ma’an reprts that Islamic Jihad leader Sheikh Nafeth Azzam on Monday urged PA President Mahmoud Abbas to walk out on negotiations with Israel.

Addressing relatives of detainees at a demonstration outside Red Crescent headquarters in Gaza City, Azzam said it made no sense for Abbas to be sending a letter to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, in an attempt to break the deadlock in peace negotiations.

“We tell the president that there is no point in sending a letter to the enemy,” Azzam said.

“We hope that the president will be clear about his positions and give up on the approach of the negotiations with Israel,” he added.
