Teen Terrorist in Court for Wounding Baby

Friday, December 19th, 2014

A Jerusalem court has brought charges against a teenage terrorist who wounded a young baby last week. The 16-year-old attacker, who cannot be named for legal reasons, is an Arab resident of the city.

He was charged with hurling a brick at a bus last Sunday. The bus was heading for the Western Wall, a Jewish holy site.

Several passengers were hit with shattered glass in the attack, and a baby suffered cuts to his head.

Arab children and teens living in Jerusalem have been involved in several recent attacks. This week, a group of Arab boys ages just 10 to 12 attacked a civilian bus, causing damage but no injuries.

The involvement of Arab children in terrorism in Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria and Gaza is a phenomenon that dates back generations. Terrorist groups in the region have been taken to task by Amnesty International, the Coalition to Stop the Use of Child Soldiers, and others for making cynical use of teenagers and young children to attack Jewish civilians.

Road Terror Attack on Southern Israeli Bus

Friday, December 19th, 2014

Arabs attacked a southern Israeli bus traveling Thursday night from Arad to Be’er Sheva along Highway 31.

The unidentified attackers hurled rocks at the bus, breaking the windshield and injuring a 60-year-old man.

Israel Police launched a search to hunt for the terrorists. Numerous “unrecognized” Bedouin encampments and small villages are located among the hills that run alongside Highway 31 between Arad and Be’er Sheva, as well as three “recognized” Bedouin towns.

No arrests have yet been made.

Arab Attack on Jerusalem Bus, No Physical Injuries

Sunday, December 14th, 2014

Palestinian Authority media propaganda has become extremely effective in conditioning even some of the area’s younger children to become vicious, murderous terrorists aiming to kill Jews on the road. A gang of three pre-teens attempted to do precisely that on Sunday evening.

Arabs attacked a Jerusalem bus traveling on Derech Jericho in the capital, damaging the vehicle. Miraculously, the passengers escaped physical injury.

The bus came under a hail of stones that were hurled by a gang of Arab minors from the side of the road in the Old City of Jerusalem.

The windshield was broken in the attack – something that could easily have caused the driver to lose control of his vehicle and send the bus flying off the road into a fatal accident.

Such attacks have achieved precisely that goal in the past, including one near Kiryat Arba-Hebron that killed a father and baby boy.

In this incident, Border Patrol police officers managed to apprehend three Arab minors, 10 to 12 years old. They called the parents of the young attackers, and reported them to social services officials.

Another Day, Another Arab Riot

Sunday, November 9th, 2014

Jerusalem Arabs hurled rocks at Israel Police on Sunday (Nov. 9) in the capital’s eastern neighborhood of Issawiya.

Masked Arab men gathered in a mob rioted during the afternoon hours to clash with Israeli security forces.

Police used riot control measures to disperse the mob.

More than 1200 police officers were deployed in Arab villages, towns and cities on Sunday, and Israel Police operated on high alert throughout the country.

Clashes also continued between Arab residents of Kfar Qana and Israel Police, with protesters waving Palestinian Authority flags while blocking entrance and access road to the town, setting tires ablaze and hurling stones at police. At least 20 rioters were arrested, including eight minors.

Riots were also reported in Kafr Qasim, and at a police station in Sha’ab, the Israeli flag was removed and replaced by that of the Palestinian Authority.

Israel Police are investigating the incident.

A number of highways were temporarily closed due to rocks, flaming tires or attacks along the roads, including Routes 65, 444 and 754. Two passengers were wounded on an Egged bus traveling from Hadera to the Galilee on Route 65 when the vehicle came under attack from Arabs hurling rocks. Police searched for the attackers but have not yet made an arrests.

Some 30 Arabs placed rocks and blazing tires on Route 754 near Nazareth, Ynet reported, forcing authorities to temporarily close the road in order to clear the obstacles.

Blazing tires created more obstacles on Route 444 near the Taibe Bridge in the “Triangle” area. One arrest was reported by police, as security personnel dispersed rioters.

The outskirts of Moshav Mei Ami were set ablaze by an Arab firebombing (Molotov cocktail). Police stationed in the Arab city of Umm al-Fahm launched an investigation into the incident.

The clashes followed protests by university students in Tel Aviv and Haifa over the death of an armed terrorist who threatened police in a vehicle late last week.

The terrorist, a 22-year-old Israeli Arab, attempted to attack police officers with a knife while they sat in their vehicle, slamming his weapon on the window.

When he was some distance from the vehicle, one of the police officers shot and killed him.

Road Terror in Jerusalem Despite Officials’ Vow to End Arab Violence

Monday, October 27th, 2014

Another day, another rock attack as an Israeli vehicle comes under a hail of stones hurled by Arabs in the Jerusalem neighborhood of Sheikh Jarrah on Monday morning, Oct. 27.

The road terror took place despite vows by Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat that Arab violence would no longer be tolerated — and despite an infusion of an additional 1,000 Border Police officers into the capital to prevent it.

Miraculously no one in the family car was physically hurt, although the passengers were traumatized by the ordeal. The vehicle was damaged as well.

Israel Police are hunting for the perpetrators, as well as for those who organized the attack.

Arabs Attack Bus to Western Wall as UN’s Ban Laments Damage in Gaza

Arabs Attack Bus Carrying Israelis, Tourists to Western Wall

Arabs in Jerusalem attacked Israelis and foreign tourists traveling in a bus on the way to the Western Wall Tuesday morning.

The attackers hurled rocks at the vehicle, smashing the windshield of the bus in a deliberate attempt to kill the driver and send the bus into a fatal crash.

A number of similar road terror attacks have successfully murdered and wounded numerous drivers and/or their passengers in the past.

Miraculously, this morning’s attempt failed to physically harm anyone, although passengers were traumatized. Police immediately began scanning the area for suspects but no arrests have yet been made.

The attack occurred as United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon was making headlines gasping over the destruction wrought by Hamas terrorists’ use of Gazans as human shields this summer during Operation Protective Shield.

Ban lamented the damage inflicted by IAF pilots, which came in response to incessant rocket and missile attacks on millions of Israeli civilians by Hamas and allied terrorists.

An estimated 20,000 homes were heavily damaged or destroyed due to terrorists embedding their ordnance, rocket launchers and strategic facilities among residential areas.

The land mass of Gaza is approximately that of New York City. The enclave’s population of about 1.8 million Palestinian Authority Arabs is concentrated in several areas where the land is good for agriculture, leaving numerous open areas.

The UN leader called the situation “beyond description” but also announced that Israel had agreed to allow an initial truckload of construction materials to enter Gaza.

The announcement comes despite the hard evidence that Hamas misused millions of dollars’ worth of construction materials previously trucked in for humanitarian purposes. Instead the terrorist group channeled the supplies to build a honeycomb of terrorist tunnels fully equipped for military use beneath the region and its borders, leading into both Israel and Egypt.

International donors pledged $5.4 billion on Sunday at a special donor conference in Cairo for reconstruction of the enclave. The sum exceeded the request of $4 billion submitted by the PA unity government for the purpose.

Jerusalem Light Rail Under Arab Attack – Again!

Sunday, October 12th, 2014

The Jerusalem intifada aimed at the capital city’s Light Rail on Saturday night with five separate attacks as the train passed through the Arab Shuafat neighborhood.

Arab attackers hurled rocks at the passenger cars in a blatant attempt to wreck the commuter line, with the light rail repeatedly coming under a hail of stones while making its way through northern Jerusalem.

Each attack began as the train passed through Shuafat; the same Arab neighborhood where three of the light rail’s stops were utterly demolished, right down to the infrastructure, at the start of Operation Protective Edge in early July.

In four out of five of the attacks, passenger cars sustained thousands of shekels’ worth of damage, with windows smashed each time.

None of the passengers were physically injured, although some were traumatized.

In four attacks no arrests were made, but in one case security forces on the train managed to arrest some of those who were throwing the rocks.

More than 100 attacks on the train have been reported since three Israeli teens were abducted and murdered in Gush Etzion by Hamas terrorists in June. An Arab teen from Shuafat was likewise kidnapped and murdered in what appeared to be a revenge killing by Jewish extremists the day after the bodies of the Jewish teenage victims were found.

In the past two months Arab attackers have caused approximately half a million shekels’ damage to the Jerusalem Light Rail as it passes through Shuafat and nearby Beit Hanina, according to the CityPass company that owns the rail line.
