Private TV Crew Catches Arab Rock-Throwers in the Act [video]

Friday, September 12th, 2014

A video crew for a security advising company caught Palestinian Authority Arab rock-throwers on film, leading to their arrest by the IDF Thursday.

Rock-throwing terrorists have been a deadly menace to Israeli drivers in Judea and Samaria, and sometimes beyond, for years because of the easy availability of weapons – rocks – and ridiculous IDF restrictions that forbid soldiers to shoot the “rock terrorists” unless there is a direct threat on their lives.

The aim of the rock-throwers is to murder, either by a direct hit on drivers and passengers or by causing a fatal crash, but that is not enough for the IDF top brass to allow troops to pull the trigger. Instead they shoot in the air and then hope they can catch up with the attackers.

The film crew that was on Highway 60, the major north-south artery in Judea and Samaria, caught two youth on film as they hurled rocks at passing cars near Ofra, north of Jerusalem.

The crew reported the incident to the IDF, and the footage helped soldiers apprehend the culprits.

Arab Rock Throwing Attacks Wounds 3-Year-Old Girl

Monday, September 1st, 2014

Palestinian Authority terrorists wounded a three-year-old girl and a bus driver in two separate rock throwing and firebombing attacks on Monday.

Both victims suffered light injuries and were treated on the spot, without need for hospitalization.

The girl was riding a bus in northern Jerusalem when the attackers smashed a glass window on the bus. She was treated at the scene for cuts from the shattered glass.

Two firebombs were broke the windshield on a bus in northern Samaria.

Police are looking for the suspects, and Jewish motorists and passengers in Judea and Samaria remain sitting ducks for terrorists, encouraged by a lax security and court system.

Rock-Throwing Terrorist Hits Jewish Driver in the Head, Car Overturns

Sunday, August 24th, 2014

A resident of the southern Hevron Hills is in serious condition from injuries to the skull after an Arab rock-throwing terrorist hit him in the head shortly after midnight Saturday, forcing his car to overturn.

The victim’s wife and baby, who were traveling in the car on their way home, were not hurt.

The terrorist struck between Al Aroob and Carmei Tzur, immediately south of Gush Etzion and one of the favorite launching areas for Arab attacks on Jewish drivers. The IDF routinely stations jeeps in the area, but restraints on dealing with rock-throwers have hampered deterrence,

The victim was rushed to Hadassah Hospital and is undergoing surgery Sunday morning for internal bleeding and skull fractures.

Prayers are being said for the recovery of Yedayah ben Orna.

Arab Rock Throwing on Temple Mount and Jerusalem

Tuesday, August 19th, 2014

Tuesday – Arab rioters are desecrating the Temple Mount once again with violence.

One policeman was lightly injured by Arab stone throwers on the Temple Mount. He received medical treatment on site.

Rocks were also thrown near Shaar Shechem (Damascus Gate), damaging windows on a passing bus.

No injuries reported, and no arrests reported either.

The Temple Mount is the Jewish people’s holiest site.

Arab Rock-Throwers Damage Israeli Car near Beit El

Monday, March 31st, 2014

Palestinian Authority rock-throwing terrorists struck again Monday afternoon on Highway 60

Earlier in the day, Arabs on the southern section of Highway 60 between Gush Etzion and Kiryat-Arba-Hevron, hurled rocks at soldiers on patrol. No one was injured.

Israeli soldiers continue to be under orders not to fire at terrorists who use rocks and boulders to smash cars and try to cause drivers to lose control.

IDF Politely Asks Rock-Throwing Arabs not to Throw Rocks (Video)

Thursday, February 27th, 2014

The IDF certainly is the most exceptional army in the world, but sometimes it really goes overboard.

The army has distributed a video, seen below, that explains how soldiers handle demonstrations every Friday, the Muslim Sabbath, when apparently it is a big mitzvah to throw rocks at the heads of Israeli soldiers.

Rock throwing is common in Judea and Samaria, and along with Molotov cocktails and booby-trapped tire throwing, is a terror act that comes under the definition of “popular terror,” military spokesmen explain.

The attacks are too undramatic for the media establishment to report them, let alone describe them as terror – unless they kill someone. That happens once in a while.

The rock-throwers are not just trying to break a window. They want to cause the driver to lose control and crash, hopefully – in their eyes – a fatal crash.

That is what happened in September 2011 when a rock smashed into the car of Asher Palmer, hitting him and causing him to spin out of control and into a guardrail near Kiryat Arba. He and his two-year-old son were killed.

Last March, Adva Biton was driving with her three daughters on her way home near Ariel in Samaria when an Arab youth – a minor – threw rocks at the truck in front of her car. The truck stopped suddenly and Adva did not have time to react. She collided directly with the truck. Adva’s five- and four-year-old daughters were slightly injured, but her three-year-old remains in the hospital until today, and requires the constant presence of Adva or her husband.

Besides the more than 2,400 rock-throwing attacks last year, there are the protests every Friday, gleefully filmed by leftists who edit out that rock-throwing and only show those mean IDF soldiers firing tear gas to disperse the mob instead of turning the other cheek, where a rock more than once has broken a few jaws.

Of course, the soldiers simply could leave and go home and allow the Arabs to find other targets, like the hundreds of thousands of Jews living in Judea and Samaria. As long as the government doesn’t decide to expel any more Jews, the IDF is staying put.

They are very nice about it. They do not want to incite Arabs, but their polite behavior is most certainly seen by protesters as a sign of weakness and the ultimate incitement.

As Captain Naveh Pepper explained, “Our mission is not to educate or to stir up tensions, but to protect the civilians who are present. If we were to act violently, it would only make the situation even tenser, which is the opposite of what we want.”

“Good morning, the people of Kadum,” says the officer. “We ask you today not to choose violence.”

While the “people of Kadum” burn  tires and arm themselves rock rocks and boulders, the office continues, “It is ok to demonstrate,, but it is not ok to use violence.”

Sure. Arab protesters definitely would take that to heart and conduct themselves in a civil manner, looking to Martin Luther King as a role model, but for some strange reason, they don’t.

“We ask you to stop throwing stones,” pleads the officer.

After a barrage  of rock-throwing, IDF vehicles enter the village, and the officer resumes his role of a diplomat that would put John Kerry to shame. “We came in because you threw stones,” he explains. You injured one of our officers.”

The IDF then shot rubber bullets, and the rioters threw more rocks.

“We ask you to stop,” the officer pleaded again.

Only in Israel.

IDF Tries to Pre-Empt Anti-Israel Amnesty Report

Wednesday, February 26th, 2014

The IDF preceded an upcoming anti-Israel Amnesty report Wednesday night and charged that “Amnesty International wholly ignores the substantial increase in Palestinian violence initiated over the past year, and shows a complete lack of understanding as to operational challenges the IDF is posed with.”

Amnesty routinely picks part the IDF for alleged violations, such as shooting at terrorists and warning suspects to stop or be shot.

Military spokesmen noted that in 2013, there were more than 5,000 reported rock-throwing attacks, a sharp increase from the year before. More than 130 Israelis were injured, some of them seriously. One baby girl still is hospitalized and remains unconscious as a result of a rock-throwing incident in Samaria.

There also were 66 other terrorist attacks in 2013, including shootings, the planting of explosive devices, blunt weapon attacks and the abduction and murder of a soldier.
