Exaggerated Reports of Terrorist Incursion into Ginot Shomron

Tuesday, September 18th, 2012

Various news sources are reporting that a terrorist with a knife was captured while trying to squeeze under the fence into the town of Ginot Shomron around 6:30 PM on Tuesday.

The story is exaggerated. A Palestinian youth who had a knife and a slingshot was questioned as he was hiking along Nachal Kana, a stream which is located hundreds of meters below Ginot Shomron. He was seen by Jewish hikers also hiking along the river, who called the army and handed over the 24 year old Arab from nearby Kfar Azun to the IDF.

First response teams of the town were not activated due to non-likelihood of a terror attack in this instance.

Anti-US Riots Continue in Egypt (Videos)

Thursday, September 13th, 2012

In Egypt, hundreds of protesters continued to riot overnight outside the US Embassy in Cairo. A number of rioters and policemen were injured.

The US has stepped up security around US embassies and Cosulates worldwide in response to this latest round of Islamic violence against it.

Last year, on September 9, 2011, Egyptians rioters surrounded the Israeli Embassy in Egypt nearly killing the personnel inside. Egyptian commandos managed to hold back the rioters long enough for the trapped Israeli personnel to be rescued. Prime Minister Netanyahu had to personally call up President Obama to ask him to intervene on Israel’s behalf with the Egyptian government to save the Israeli lives.

In August 2012, 75 out of 76 of those Egyptian rioters were sentenced to one year in jail, but their jail terms were suspended. The 76th man, Omar Afifi, fled Egypt.
