Israeli Artillery Attack Hamas Outpost in Gaza, Retaliation for Gunfire at IDF

Monday, December 19th, 2016

Israeli tanks opened fire in an attack on an outpost of the Hamas terrorist organization in central Gaza Monday afternoon. Three artillery shells were fired at the observation tower near Al-Bureijj, sources said.

The attack came in retaliation for gunfire aimed at Israeli soldiers earlier in the day as they carried out routine work on the border fence with southern Gaza.

Farmers who were working their fields within a mile of the site of the attack were immediately told to evacuate the area.

No injuries were reported on either side.

Friday Night Infiltation into Beitar

Sunday, December 4th, 2016

It’s been a busy weekend for Beitar Illit, in Gush Etzion, just south of Jerusalem. On Saturday nights, Arab smashed the windows of cars driving down the nearby main highway.

Late Friday night, despite the fog and heavy rain, security cameras spotted two Arab infiltrators climbing over the security fence into the Ultra-Orthodox city.

The army was called out, and hundreds of soldiers ran searches all night long through the massive rain storm in the Givat Aleph neighborhood.

The alert level was finally lowered in the morning after it had been determined that the infiltrators had left the city via the fence.

An interesting point of information about Beitar, is that on Shabbat, the security chief is Faraj Daahar, an Israeli-Druze, who served as an officer in Givati, and has protected the town of Beitar as their Shabbat security chief for the past 25 years.

In August 2015, a female Arab terrorist tried to attack a security guard at the entrance to Beitar. That terrorist was killed.

President Rivlin Visits Bereaved Family of Israeli Teen Killed on Israel-Egyptian Border

Friday, October 28th, 2016

President Reuven Rivlin paid a condolence visit on Thursday to the family of Nimer Abu Amar, the 15-year-old Bedouin teen who was killed by shots fired on the Israeli-Egyptian border.

“We are all citizens of the same country, we have come to share in your profound grief,” Rivlin said.

“We are all equal in this country and there is no difference between a child from Lakiya or from Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, or Haifa. The Ministry of Defense treats a child from Lakiya in exactly the same way as it would any other child, and we will check and follow closely after this tragic incident.”

Bassam Abu Amar, the bereaved father, told Rivlin that he was confident the ministry would “pursue justice and investigate the issue.” He added, however, “We are in great pain; we are mourning our firstborn.”

Nimer’s uncle, Fares Abu Amar said, “We have been working with the security establishment for generations, and we will continue to serve the country and work along the borders.” He expressed confidence that the Defense Ministry would investigate and “draw the necessary conclusions.

“Our child is yours as well as ours – there is no question about that.”

The President embraced the family upon leaving and promised that the relevant officials at the President’s Office will follow the investigation into the incident.

Junior Terrorists-in-Training Caught With Knives in Gush Etzion [video]

Wednesday, October 26th, 2016

Two young armed terrorists-in-training were caught in Gush Etzion by IDF soldiers Wednesday night after an extended search near Kibbutz Migdal Oz in Judea, south of Jerusalem.

The two culprits, both from the nearby Arab village of Beit Fajr and younger than 10 years old, were carrying knives. They were spotted near the kibbutz security fence as two suspicious-looking figures who appeared to be hiding.

During the initial questioning, the children admitted to having been sent, armed with knives, in order to carry out a terror attack.

Lt. Col. Peter Lerner, IDF Spokesperson, said, “When two eight yearold children are sent on a mission to attack Israeli civilians it is clear that the hateful rhetoric that echoes within Palestinian society abuses the most vulnerable of minds.”

Palestinian Authority terrorist groups such as the Palestinian Islamic Jihad and Hamas terror organizations as well as the Fatah-linked Al Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades all run annual summer camps to train children from ages as young as possible in various ways to murder Israelis and Jews.

Arabs living in the Palestinian Authority are brainwashed from the cradle to the grave with the understanding that they will be heavily rewarded spiritually as well as financially for dedicating their lives to the destruction of the State of Israel and the physical annihilation of their Jewish neighbors.

IDF Soldiers Use Light to Frighten Off Wannabe Gaza Terrorists

Sunday, September 18th, 2016

IDF soldiers frightened off a group of Gazans who apparently decided to sneak towards the Gaza security fence with Israel — an activity that is clearly dangerous and known to everyone to carry a possible death sentence.

Someone approaching the security fence from the Gaza side in the middle of the night obviously has — at the least — highly suspect reasons for doing so.

This incident took place across from the so-called “refugee camp” of El Bureij in central Gaza, home to nearly 40,000 people — nearly double the population of the northern Israeli Negev city of Arad. The place has a long history of conflict and hatred of Israel.

In the dark, Israeli soldiers made the best choice: they detonated a brief illumination bomb and aimed it at the fence, thus lighting up the entire area in the process.

Unsurprisingly, the illuminating bomb that illuminated the area inspired the suspects to retrace their steps and return to Gaza territory.

It’s not clear what their motives were, but it is very clear they weren’t coming to defect, celebrate a melave malka (Saturday night party to greet the new week) or offer assistance to IDF soldiers serving in the area.

Even the smallest candle can light the deepest darkness. So much more so, a illumination bomb.

Terrorists Against the Wall

Monday, July 18th, 2016

A group of “former” Arab terrorists and their leftwing Israeli enablers held a protest in Gush Etzion on Friday, between Beitar and Efrat.

They shut down Highway 60, the main highway between Jerusalem and Gush Etzion. They held up signs with ridiculous statements on them, such as “The wall is violent”.

While my regular readers know that I am not a fan of the security wall or of Iron Dome, as these are defensive measures we use instead of fighting to win, there’s no question that the psychological shock the Jihadists and their supporters felt when the security fences and walls went up, forced them to reevaluate the “success” of their suicide bombing campaign and ability to continue them.

Almost immediately the Israeli Left and the Arabs began fighting the wall, always leaving out of their narrative the fact that the Arab terrorists were the ones responsible for it having to go up in the first place.

The group who blocked Highway 60 in Gush Etzion describe themselves as having “actively participated in the cycle of violence”, which in plain English means, the Arabs in their group were active terrorists who tried to, and perhaps succeeded in hurting and killing Jews.

In fact, it may very well be that included in this group protesting the security wall are failed suicide bombers and the people that sent them.

Of course people like that would consider the wall “violent”, as perhaps more than anything it affected their ability to kill lots of Jews, and it heavily reduced the active Arab support for their acts of terrorism.

It’s an obvious question to ask, are these “former” terrorists still supporting terror? Is “peace” simply a new tactic for their same nefarious goals?

We could talk about their one-track, mostly one-sided message, and how they don’t block the roads to Yata and Dura in colorful protest of the serial Arab terror emanating from those villages.

They explain away their one-sided protests and imbalanced messages citing the “occupation”. Their catchall word for excusing everything.

But to me, the real warning sign is how “former” terrorists, whose plans were thwarted by the security wall, are now calling to tear down one of Israel’s primary passive deterrents against suicide bombers and Arab terrorism – right in the midst of a new wave of terrorism.

I think they’ve answered the question.
