Netanyahu: Cancel Citizenship of ‘Those Who Call to Destroy Israel’

Saturday, November 8th, 2014

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu declared Saturday night that he “will instruct the Interior Minister to evaluate revoking the citizenship of those who call for the destruction of the State of Israel.”

The Prime Minister did not specifically relate to the riots in the northern Israel city of Kfar Kanna on Saturday following the Friday night police action that killed an Arab terrorist whom officers tried to arrest.

Arabs in the city claimed that the terrorist was shot in cold blood.

“Israel is a nation of law. We will not tolerate disturbances and rioting,” said Prime Minister Netanyahu. “We will act against those who throw stones, block roads and call for the establishment of a Palestinian state in place of the State of Israel.

Whoever does not honor Israeli law will be punished with utmost severity.”

Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman, who previously has called on all Israeli citizens to sign a loyalty oath, specifically backed the Public Security Minister Yitzhack Aharonovich, who is responsible for the police.

Netanyahu is sounding more like Avigdor Lieberman every day, perhaps another sign that elections are not so far away.

Intifada Spills into Northern Israel after Police Kill Attacker

Saturday, November 8th, 2014

Arab rage spilled over into the Galilee in Northern Israel Saturday, one day after police killed an armed Arab who attacked their vehicle but who is shown in a video running away from police when an officer shot him in the back and killed him.

The mayor of the city accused police of “murder in cold blood,” but the police said their officers were in a life-threatening situation because the attacker was armed with a knife. He was identified as 22-year-old Kheir Hamdan

Former and current Knesset Members as well as current Arab MKs joined thousands of protesters Saturday afternoon in a protest that turned into a full-scale riot, complete with rock-throwing and firebombs aimed at police as well as burning tires in the streets.

MK Ahmed Tibi demanded the arrest of the police officer who shot and killed Hamdan.

The police version of the incident is that Hamdan tried to stab officer when they attempted to arrest him at his house for allegedly having thrown a stun grenade. Police official said that officers fired warning shots in the air and then shot and killed him when he ignored the warning.

The video, as seen below and probably edited, only shows that Hamdan banged on a police vehicle and then ran away when officers got out of their vehicle and shot him in the back as he fled.

The Justice Ministry said it will investigate police behavior.

Even if the video turns out to be a “Pallywood” edit of an obvious life-threatening attack on police, history has shown that rioters will believe what they want to believe.

This does not automatically acquit the police, whose behavior in protests has often proved to be totally unprofessional.

Kfar Kanna was quiet Saturday night as Hamdan’s funeral took place, but more violence is expected later in the night or tomorrow.

Jewish Home party leader Naftali Bennett commented, “A crazed and Arab terrorist, armed with a knife, attempted to murder police officers who were in their vehicle. The reaction of the police was exactly what should be expected by security officers. It is necessary to investigate, but this was not a cold-blooded murder, and there is no room to abandon police officers who are deployed to defend us.

“If we do not support them, we will see more and more murders with knives, firecrackers and hit-and-run terrorists.”

Update: Court Postpones Arab Riot-Funeral

Saturday, October 25th, 2014

A Jerusalem court of appeals Saturday night overturned a lower court decision and accepted a request by police to postpone a funeral for a terrorist until Sunday.

Palestinian Authority and Jerusalem Arabs were preparing for two funerals for terrorists, and Israeli police and the IDF were on hand for the usual custom of honoring the deceased by hurling rocks, cinder blocks and firebombs at ‘Zionist” forces who try to preserve some semblance of law and order.

One will take place near Ramallah for a 14-year-old Arab with American citizenship who was killed by Israeli soldiers when he tried to murder passing Jewish motorists on Highway 60 with a firebomb Friday evening.

The other funeral is for Abdel Rahman al-Shaludi, who rammed his car at a Jerusalem, light rail train on Wednesday and killed a three-month-old American-Israeli baby.

A Jerusalem court originally allowed 80 people to attend the funeral near the Old City at 10 p.m. Saturday and denied a police request that the number be limited to 20 in order to reduce the extent of possible violence. The higher court accepted the request at the last minute, and the funeral was postponed until Sunday.

The Palestinian Authority has managed to convince many western leaders and foreign media that the attack was really an accident. The family of al-Shaludi claims that he simply lost control his car and was unnecessarily killed by police.

The U.S. State Dept. bought the version and after condemning the attack, it referred to is an “incident.”

 

Rioting Arab Mob Attacks IDF Soldiers Near Ramallah

Wednesday, September 10th, 2014

A mob of rioting Arabs attacked Israeli soldiers Wednesday near Ramallah following the funeral of a Hamas terrorist killed overnight in Samaria.

Hundreds of Arabs hurled rocks at the soldiers following the funeral of 22-year-old Issa al-Qitri; he was one of about 50 Arabs who attacked Israeli soldiers the night before in an attempt to prevent IDF troops from arresting a Hamas operative.

The Arabs hurled rocks and firebombs (Molotov cocktails), and rolled burning tires at the soldiers, according to the IDF Spokesperson. Soldiers opened fire and hit a rioter who hurled an explosive device at the troops, the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit said. Al-Qitri later died of the gunshot wounds. Seven others were arrested.

The IDF soldiers continued with their task following the exchange late Tuesday night and proceeded to the home of the Hamas terrorist and arrested him. While searching the home they found and confiscated a significant amount of ammunition and several firearms.

During the day on Wednesday six Arab fugitives were arrested, including four suspects who were wanted for participating in previous riots and attacks on Israeli civilians and security personnel, the IDF said. Two were members of the Hamas terrorist organization. Arrests were made in Ramallah, Kalandia, Sair and Shukba.

Dozens of Jewish youths demonstrated Saturday night in the center of Jerusalem, yelling ‘Death to Arabs!’ A crowd of about 50 teens had gathered, police said. The protesters were gathered to demonstrate against Arab males who were “starting up with” and bothering Jewish girls on the streets of Jerusalem, according to a source who spoke on condition of anonymity.

Three Jewish teens were arrested for attacking and wounding a volunteer police officer, who was evacuated for treatment to Sha’are Tzedek Medical Center, and for incitement to attack Arabs.
