IDF Arrests Palestinian Authority Terrorists Who Fired on Israelis

Monday, March 24th, 2014

Israeli security forces and soldiers lifted a gag order Monday and revealed they have arrested a Palestinian Authority terrorist cell from Samaria that carried out shooting attacks and a firebomb attacks in the past several months.

They attacked Israeli motorists near Kedumim, located three miles east of the Karnei and Ginot Shomron communities in central Samaria.

The terrorists’ rifle was confiscated during the arrest.

No one was injured in the attacks.

Security Agencies Believe Israel’s Biometric Database Not Secure

Monday, March 3rd, 2014

Mossad, Shabak, and certain IDF officers have been ordered to avoid participation in the biometric ID “Smart Teudat Zehut” program that is currently under trial and being pushed onto unsuspecting citizens in Israel.

Israel’s security forces strongly believe that the biometric database is not sufficiently secure, according to a report in Haaretz.

But one doesn’t need to be a secret agent to worry about this program.

Private citizens should also be concerned about who will have access to their biometric and personal data, whether deliberately or accidentally, and how that data will be used and connected up with other database information, to track the activities of average citizens.

MK Moshe Feiglin (Likud) has been saying for months now that the new biometric database is bad news for Israelis.

In an article he published in The Jewish Press more than a year ago, Guard our Freedom: Beware the Biometric Law, MK Feiglin noted that the possibility of breaking into the ID database is simply too strong a temptation for powerful interest groups and tycoons, who are sure to find a way to get to this data.

“We’re giving the State unlimited abilities to control and manage civilian life,” Feiglin warned in a press interview recently. “We’re talking about being biometrically marked. If we were offered to be marked on our forehead we would refuse. We’d also refuse a tattoo on our ear, but when the tattoo is transparent we agree.”

“People can lose their liberty without feeling a thing,” he cautions. “So guard it with the greatest vigilance and do not give anyone your biometric information.”

Haredi Rabbi Warns Lapid Is a Target for Assassination

Wednesday, February 26th, 2014

A rabbi-lawyer warned  on radio that an “important’ Torah scholar told him that Yair Lapid is in line to be the first politician to be assassinated since the murder of Yitzchak Rabin 18 years ago.

The host of the radio show in the national religious Galei Israel radio station immediately half-joked that the Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) was on the way to arrest the guest, Dan Halberthal.

The program, by coincidence or not, is called “Don’t Gag the Mouth.” Since the assassination of Rabin, police from time to time have arrested people for suggesting that someone should be shot, although officials have conveniently ignored outright incitement from Arab and even one or two Jewish Knesset Members.

Halberthal defended his statement and said he feels an obligation to make a public warning as a matter of prevention. For the record, The Jewish Press, like Halberthal, is reporting what was said. Nothing more and nothing less.

The background to the rage in the Haredi community is the work of the “Shaked Committee” that has drawn up legislation for a universal draft that would put draft dodgers in jail if they don’t report for military duty.

The sounds of voices of extremism and for violence are becoming more commonly heard in the Haredi community, according to Halberthal.

“A guest of mine on Shabbat, who is an important figure in the world of yeshivas, told me – and I think there is a lot of truth to it – that “there is going to be a new Rabin assassination. Lapid is going to be killed by a Haredi.”

Shrugging off warnings about the Shin Bet, Halberthal, who also lectures on Jewish judicial law, continued, “When someone tells me something that I think is true, I listen.”

In a subsequent interview with Channel 2, Halberthal said, “Since the murder of Rabin, there has not been such a situation… as with Lapid. He is a marked man in the Haredi community.

“It is not exceptional to hear comparisons between Lapid, Amalek, Haman and Auschwitz when his name is mentioned. On Purim, there definitely will be costumes of Lapid as the modern Haman.

Therefore, it cannot be ruled out that some crazy nut will get up one day and decide to carry out the act [of assassination].” The Haredi street is entirely emotional now, and I feel I must issue a warning.”

Anti-Israel Cyber Attackers Posing as Shin Bet

Wednesday, February 26th, 2014

An anti-Israeli group is posing as the Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) and trying to plant spyware in personal computers by sending email in the name of General Security Service, Israel Defense reports.

Attributing the report to informed officials, it said that the group of cyber attackers copy data from the Shin Bet website and then impersonate as the Shine Bet.

After the receiver opens the email, a worm crawls into the computer, allowing the hackers to keep track of information on the computers.

Israel Defense said that the Shin Bet is trying to stop the hackers.

Shin Bet and IDF Arrest Hamas ‘Highway Rock-Throwing’ Gang

Monday, February 24th, 2014

The Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet), soldiers and police have arrested 15 Hamas members in the past several weeks on suspicion of carrying out rock-throwing and Molotov cocktail attacks on Highway 443, which connects Samaria, Jerusalem, the city of Modi’in and Ben Gurion Airport.

Several of those arrested are returnees to terror, having previously been jailed for attacks against Jews. Military official said there is not only a growing trend of the “revolving door terrorists” phenomena, but that the terrorist also are improving their methods and involvement.

Israel previously has received hundreds of terrorists who signed a piece of paper promising they would behave nicely and would not return to terror.

Since then, the released prisoners who returned to their favorite occupation of terror have killed more than 120 Jews the past several years.

Four Jerusalem Arabs Indicted for Plot for Wedding Massacre

Wednesday, February 5th, 2014

Four Jerusalem Arabs plotted to carry out a grisly massacre at a wedding hall near Shaarei Tzedek Hospital and Har Herzl in the capital, according to indictments filed in a Jerusalem court Wednesday, lifting a gag order that had been in effect.

All four Arabs, between 18 and 21 years old, are from the Jabal Muchabar neighborhood, adjacent to the Jewish neighborhood of Armon HaNatziv that is next to Talpiot on the southern edge of Jerusalem.

The terrorists planned to wear Haredi clothes to crash a wedding at the Nof wedding hall in the Bayit Vegan neighborhood, located well within the old boundaries of the capital before the Six-Day War in 1967. They were to be armed with an Uzi sub-machine gun, with which they would the spray at anyone in sight and carry out one of the bloodiest massacres since the Netanya Park Hotel slaughter on Passover in 2002.

The Arabs lived in a neighborhood that was restored to Israel during the war and officially annexed to Jerusalem in 1980.

The indictments stated that Anas Ouisat and Basel Abidat planned last December to work with terrorist organizations to kill Jews.

Ouisat previously worked at the wedding hall and knew that an attack there could kill and wound several hundred wedding guests. Ahmed Sarur carried out surveillance for the planned attack but eventually left the gang and Amru Abado took his place.

All four are between 18 and 21 years old.

Israel Foiled 40 Attempted Attacks by Terrorists Freed for Shalit

Monday, January 27th, 2014

Israeli security forces in 2013 foiled 40 attempted or planned attacks by terrorists who were freed by Israel in November 2011 for the return of kidnapped soldier Gilad Shalit, the Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) reported Monday in its annual summary of terror.

In addition, several attacks were carried out by other terrorists freed in the 1,000 for 1 deal.

The report also noted that Palestinian Authority terrorists killed six Israelis last year, compared with zero in 2012. Shortly before the first murder, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry boasted how the Palestinian Authority had stopped terror to the point that no one was killed in 2012.

For the record, there 1,271 terrorist attacks in Judea and Samaria  2012, more than twice as many as in 2012, and that does not include more than 150 attacks that were prevented by the IDF.

The Palestinian Authority not only did not prevent terror, its security services personnel were involved in at least two serious attacks.
