‘Call for Young People’ Recruits Terrorist Trainees on Twitter?

Friday, November 13th, 2015

A “Call for Young People” was put out early Friday in Arabic over the Internet via the Twitter social networking site, accompanied by a glowing picture of an Arab teen preparing to hurl a rock with a slingshot.

The fancy computer graphics are attractive to the eye, with bright colors that are sulfurous yellow and cherry-red above. The human figure is in ethereal white. The message seems pretty clear: violence awaits.

The “call” is only one of many such methods used to recruit new blood for the Palestinian Authority terror machine, which has begun to feed on its own children.

Allegedly the logic behind the strategy is two-fold:
1. Israeli authorities are loathe to jail a child, particularly one at age 13 or below, regardless of crime committed;

2. If the child is shot and wounded or killed during the course of attacking Israelis, that too is a “plus” because it makes for a terrific photo image to be used abroad, one that conveys the ultimate in “poor Arab population being abused by the powerful Israelis” graphics.

One way to avoid falling in to this abyss is to bar news coverage at a terror attack site. That is not popular but it can be done, citing the safety of media. Another way, and probably more effective, is for security personnel to erect an opaque cylindrical barrier around the body of any child terrorist shot or otherwise wounded during any attack.

Such a barrier will prevent the photographing of such images and their immediate misuse by media abroad.

The “call for young people” being flashed around the region by social networks in Arabic is not new: it is just updated with the Internet and bells and whistles now provided with computer graphics programs.

The sooner Israel learns to counter such posts, the better off we all will be.

Arab Terror Attacks Aimed at IDF, Light Rail Train

Friday, November 13th, 2015

Arabs attacked a Light Rail train Thursday night in northern Jerusalem and hurled rocks at Israeli security personnel early Friday in Samaria.

Riots were reported early Friday as Palestinian Authority Arabs clashed with Israeli military forces in Al-Bireh, which is adjacent to Ramallah in Samaria, about 15 kilometers (9.3 miles) north of Jerusalem.

The attackers threw stones at the IDF soldiers, according to local sources.

Elsewhere in related security news, Arab attackers threw stones Thursday night at a Light Rail train as it traveled through the northern Jerusalem neighborhood of Shuafat.

None of the passengers were physically injured in the attack, but at least one of the cars was damaged and was taken out of service.

On Tuesday, two Arab children stabbed a 25-year-old guard aboard a Jerusalem Light Rail train in a terror attack.

The guard was slightly wounded but shot the 11-year-old who had stabbed him, while passengers restrained the other young terrorist until police arrived.

“I wanted to kill Jews to avenge my cousin Muhammad who was murdered at Damascus Gate,” one of the two young terrorists later confessed to police. He explained that he wanted to avenge the death of his cousin, who was shot and killed last month after stabbing two police officers in Jerusalem.

The two youngsters, 14-year-old Muawiyyeh Alkam and 11-year-old Ali Alkam are both residents of Shuafat. They were seen on CCTV security footage from their attack carefully observing their target on the train in nearby Pisgat Ze’ev and waiting until the guard was distracted to draw their knives and attack.

Alkam, age 11, is hospitalized in good condition at Hadassah Ein Kerem Medical Center. Remand for his 14-year-old cousin has been extended for another week by the Jerusalem Magistrate’s Court, pending presentation of evidence by police for arraignment and indictment.

Israeli Security Forces Enter Hebron Hospital to Nab Arab Terrorist

Thursday, November 12th, 2015

Israeli security personnel entered a Hebron hospital to arrest an Arab terrorist who tried to kill a Jew in Gush Etzion on October 25.

The terrorist’s 28-year-old cousin was shot and killed when he attacked the security forces during the arrest operation, according to Tazpit news agency.

During the operation, now cleared for publication, a joint force comprised of Shin Bet, IDF and police operatives entered the Ahali Hebron hospital at night to arrest the attacker, Shalaldeh Azzam Izzat Sa’aban, age 20.

He himself was taken into custody by the forces and transferred to Shin Bet personnel for interrogation.

“It is important to emphasize the security establishment will not allow the existence of shelter for terrorists, no matter where they are,” the Shin Bet said in its statement.

Sa’aban was arrested after he threw rocks at an Israeli’s car and then stabbed him in the chest when he came to a stop and exited the vehicle.

The victim fired his gun at his attacker, who lives in the Arab village of Sair and belongs to a family of Hamas activists and operatives. Despite his own injuries, the terrorist fled the scene after the attack and succeeded in making his escape.

Sa’aban subsequently sought medical treatment at the Elhal Medical Center for the gunshot wound in Hebron, but was tracked down and ultimately identified by the Shin Bet.



Israeli Motorcyclist Wounded in Jerusalem Arab Stone-Throwing Attack

Monday, November 9th, 2015

An Israeli man in his 20s who was riding a motorcycle in Jerusalem was wounded by Arab terrorists Monday when they hurled rocks at him as he drove through the A-Tur neighborhood in the city.

The victim was treated for facial injuries by Magen David Adom personnel who arrived at the scene, before he was evacuated to Sha’are Zedek Medical Center.

The neighborhood has been a flashpoint for Arab violence more than once this year, and often since the start of the current wave of terror.

Abbas Awards Order of Merit to Cartoonist for Glorifying Stone-Throwing Terrorists

Sunday, October 25th, 2015

Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas has awarded the entity’s Order of Merit for Culture, Sciences an Arts to the cartoonist at the Al-Ayyam daily newspaper who has been glorifying terrorist stone-throwing attacks on Israeli motorists.

Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas awards Order of Merit for his career-long work to anti-Israel, anti-Semitic cartoonist Al-Bukhari.

Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas awards Order of Merit for his career-long work to anti-Israel, anti-Semitic cartoonist Al-Bukhari.

The Palestinian Media Watch organization (PMW) picked up and translated the news article announcing the award to Baha al-Bukhari. PMW monitors Arab news media around Israel.

Abbas explained that al-Bukhari received the award because his work “fits Palestine and its resolute and full culture,” according to the announcement, which ran in several Arab news outlets.

“The president [Abbas] awarded the Order of Merit for Culture, Sciences and Arts to the creator and artist al-Bukhari in recognition of his creative path in plastic arts and cartoons, and out of recognition of his life full of giving, actions, struggle, and beauty, in a way that fits Palestine and its resolute and full culture,” announced the Al-Hayat Al-Jadida last Thursday.

Nearly two weeks ago (Oct. 13) in the Al-Ayyam, a cartoon showed a whole Arab family prepared with rocks in their hands and ready to attack. The text above the cartoon proclaimed, “The rocks of 2015!” and the text on the text on the man’s arm read, “Allah is with you, Abu Al-Abed” – the name of the cartoon character.

Another cartoon by Al-Bukhari, published in the Al-Ayyam on October 9, encouraged more rock throwing, calling Arabs to “Advance, advance.” The cartoon showed an Arab throwing a rock, with a Palestinian Authority flag in the background.

Al-Bukhari has in the past (March 23, 2014, Al-Ayyam) drawn Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu bathing in blood. The cartoon referred to an incident in which the IDF came to Jenin arrest a Hamas terrorist, but he and others started shooting; subsequently the fugitive terrorist and two others were killed.

The same cartoonist also has presented Israel’s President Reuven Rivlin in much the same way (Al-Ayyam, June 12, 2014) in a cartoon in which he is seen carrying what appear to be buckets of blood. The same cartoon adopted the libelous claim by the Palestinian Authority that the two stripes on the Israeli flag represent the Nile and the Euphrates, or the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea, representing an alleged Jewish plan to establish “Greater Israel” ruling over all of “Palestine.”

Al-Bukhari two years ago presented Israel as an octopus wrapping its arms around Al-Aqsa Mosque, criticizing the Arab nations for “sleeping!”

On the same note, he prepared a cartoon that supported the claim by the Palestinian Authority that Israel “Judaizes” Jerusalem while attempting to “erase” all Arab and Muslim traces in the city. The cartoon featured a huge mushroom to represent the Hurva Synagogue, which was rebuilt and restored by Israel a few years ago in the Old City of Jerusalem. The mushroom-as-synagogue was overshadowing the Dome of the Rock, with Arabic text on the mushroom literally meaning “destruction,” but also translated as “Hurva Synagogue.”

2 Arab Teens Nabbed in Jaffa Stone-Throwing Attack

Wednesday, October 7th, 2015

Two Arab attackers were arrested in Jaffa (Yafo) Wednesday evening after they were caught throwing stones at a bus in the center of town. Both of the terrorists-in-training were legal minors and cannot be identified due to their ages, though their youth did not stop them from attempting to kill Israelis.

Numerous people have been murdered in Israel by Arab terrorists hurling rocks at the vehicles in which they were traveling. As a result, the Israeli government has upgraded the fines and prison terms for convictions of this crime in all age groups as a result.

In Wednesday night’s attack in Jaffa, the bus was damaged but none of the passengers were physically injured.
