1 Arab Rioter Dead, 9 Israel Police Officer Hurt in Shuafat Clashes

Thursday, October 8th, 2015

Nine Israeli police officers were wounded and a 20-year-old Arab terrorist was killed Thursday evening in clashes that took place in the northern Jerusalem neighborhood of Shuafat.

Masked Arabs attempted to block Israeli security personnel from entering the neighborhood to search the home of the terrorist who stabbed a yeshiva student earlier in the day at a Light Rail station in the capital.

The rioting Arabs hurled firebombs and improvised explosive devices (IEDs) at the security forces.

Also Thursday, a 20-year-old Jewish man was stabbed by an Arab terrorist in the northern Israeli town of Afula. A few hours later, an IDF soldier was stabbed twice in the chest in another terror attack in the same town. According to Yossi Fahima, director of Magen David Adom emergency services in Afula, the victim was conscious when he was evacuated to a nearby medical center in serious condition.

The terrorist was captured and arrested within minutes of the attack. “The terrorist was not wounded, other than from blows he received from civilians, and [he] was rescued from the angry mob,” Fahima said.

Arab Riots Near Ramallah

Friday, August 8th, 2014

A mob of Palestinian Authority Arabs rioted near the Samaria-based PA capital of Ramallah, not far from the Jewish community of Beit El, north of Jerusalem, on Friday afternoon.

Several hundred rioters hurled rocks, firebombs (Molotov cocktails) and fireworks at IDF soldiers who at first used standard riot control methods in attempts to contain the mob.

When that failed, IDF soldiers allegedly opened fire, according to the Palestinian Authority’s Bethlehem-based Ma’an News agency. It is not clear how many of the rioters were wounded, if any.

FM Liberman Reminds US, Europe: ‘We Know How to Investigate’

Thursday, May 22nd, 2014

Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman rebuked the U.S. and Europe after their calls for a “thorough” investigation of the deaths of two Palestinian Authority Arabs in Nakba Day riots last week.

The two Arab teens were killed on May 15, allegedly by IDF soldiers, during violence outside the Ofer Prison, located next to the PA capital of Ramallah in Samaria.

“”We don’t need an American request to investigate the subject,” Liberman told reporters Wednesday while visiting Samaria’s Ariel University. “I reject any request and the hypocrisy we see worldwide.”

U.S. State Department spokesperson Jen Psaki called for a “prompt and transparent” investigation in response to a reporter’s question during a briefing on Capitol Hill.

European Union missions in the Palestinian Authority capital of Ramallah and in Jerusalem made similar statements. “We reiterate the need for security forces, whether Israeli or Palestinian, to refrain from the use of lethal force, except in cases where there is a real and imminent threat to life,” they said.

In response, Liberman pointed out that the Israeli army is the “most moral” military force in the world.

“I am saddened these demands don’t come up in other cases,” he commented. “In Syria around 170,000 people have been killed and I didn’t see any act or request from the international community to investigate those murders. Hamas executed two men in Gaza after accusing them of spying for Israel, both without a lawyer or fair trial. I didn’t see any request to investigate that [either],” he added.

As Liberman has pointed out, the video footage that has made the rounds was posted after several days and may have been edited, as such videos often are. Leftists groups with an agenda hoping to incriminate Israel often show only part of an incident, or judiciously edit the footage to falsify the information altogether, as in the Al Dura case.

At the end of the day, regardless of the outcome, one must ask the question:

Why were these two young men there in the first place, during a violent Nakba Day riot at Ofer Prison?
