‘Slight Improvement’ in Life-threatening Condition of Firebomb Victim

Friday, December 26th, 2014

Doctors at Sheba Hospital in Tel Aviv said Friday morning that there is a “slight improvement” in the condition of 11-year-old Ayala Shapira, who still is fighting for her life after a Palestinian Authority terrorist set on fire the car in which she and her father were riding last night.

They live in the El Matan outpost, adjacent to Maaleh Shomron, which is part of the Maaleh-Ginot-Karnei Shomron communities between Kfar Saba and Kedumim.

Her father escaped the burning vehicle with light burn wounds. Ayala suffered burns over 30-40 percent of her body, mostly in the upper parts and in the face.

Last month, Ayala’s mother Ruth was targeted in a similar Molotov cocktail attack in the same spot of last night’s attack. Her car was destroyed but she was not injured.

The girl’s father Avner told Yediot Acharonot that he saw the terrorists lighting the firebomb and throwing it.

“I shouted to my daughter to get out and she was able to do so,” he said. “We were able by the grace of God to get out of the car, but she was much more seriously wounded than I was. We hope that the hospital staff will be able to return her to her previous state.”

Ruth Shapira told the Israeli newspaper, “Ayala is a very special girl. She is an exceptionally smart child, who was on her way home from a program for youth gifted in mathematics at the Bar-Ilan University. “

Police said that Ayala almost certainly would have been dead if she had not rolled herself on the ground to extinguish the flames on her burning body.

As usual after a terrorist attack, the army sent a large number of soldiers to search for the attacker, who still is at large.

The nearby highway 55, the only direct road connecting Kfar Saba with Jewish communities in the area, has been the scene of hundreds of attempts to kill Jews with rocks, firebombs and guns. The army occasionally deploys several patrols simultaneously on the road.

And how does the pro-Palestinian Authority crowd understand the attack.

The Bethlehem-based Ma’an News Agency told its English-speaking readers, who include foreign media, a blanket lie.

“Maaleh Shomron is part of a larger settlement bloc…surrounding a number of Palestinian villages on at least three sides and preventing Palestinians from freely moving in the area,” it wrote.

As usual, the opposite is true.

There are far more Arab villages than there are Jewish communities, and the only ”preventing” to moving freely comes from Palestinian Authority terrorists who constantly try to murder Jews.

 

Arabs Imitate Ancient Greeks and Vandalize Joseph’s Tomb

Monday, December 22nd, 2014

More than 1,000 Jews visiting Joseph’s Tomb (Kever Yosef) in Shechem Sunday night discovered that Palestinian Authority Arabs vandalized the holy site for the umpteenth time.

The vandals destroyed the electric system, but the Jews, under IDF protection, lit a menorah on the sixth night of Hanukkah, which commemorates the victory of the Maccabeans over the Greek conquerors who desecrated the Holy Temple nearly 2000 years ago.

Israel surrendered open access to Joseph’s Tomb in 2001 after a terrorist attack, allowing a violation of the Oslo Accords protecting the rights of all religions to visit holy sites to become an accepted principle.

Leftists and plain President Obama-Arabs read the news differently.

The “Alternative News. Org” website reported, “1,000 Israelis raided the northern West Bank area of Nablus [Shechem] Sunday night to pray at Joseph’s Tomb, located on the outskirts of the city….

“Joseph’s Tomb is located in Area A of the West Bank, under full security and administrative control of the Palestinian Authority (PA). Although entry into Joseph’s Tomb requires permission and coordination with the PA, the Israeli civilians and troops entered without either.”

Every time a Jew visits the Temple Mount or Joseph’s Tomb, and soon the Dead Sea can be added to the list, it is a “raid.”

As for the report that they entered without permission, the IDF told The Jewish Press Monday morning that simply is not true. “There was coordination,” a spokeswoman said.

Alternative News also conveniently omitted the wording of the Oslo Accords that specifically reserves the rights of Jews to visit Joseph’s Tomb, among others, and requires “both sides shall respect and protect the listed below religious rights of Jews, Christians, Moslems and Samaritans.”

Hit and Run in the Shomron, Possible Terror Attack

Monday, December 1st, 2014

A 60 year old Jewish man was hit by a car in a hit and run on Monday afternoon near Migdalim (Tzomet Alon) in the Shomron. The victim was evacuated from the scene by helicopter to Beilinson hospital with a serious head injury. He is currently on a respirator.

Police suspect it may have been a run-over terror attack.

IDF Foils Samaria Terror Attack in West Bank

Thursday, November 6th, 2014

IDF soldiers prevented a would-be Arab terrorist from carrying out a terror attack Thursday in the Samaria region.

The Arab, a resident of the Palestinian Authority, was traveling from Shechem (Nablus) to Huwara when he caught the notice of IDF soldiers operating in the area.

The soldiers stopped the suspect for a routine search, having seen that he was carrying what appeared to be a suspicious object.

They discovered the object was, in fact, a pipe bomb. Sappers were summoned to the scene to defuse the explosive, which they did successfully.

No injuries or damage were reported from the incident. Security personnel took the suspect into custody for further questioning.

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.

Israel Goes on Offensive with Announcement of New Homes in Samaria

Friday, September 5th, 2014

Israel announced on Friday it is issuing tenders for 283 new homes in the community Elkana, located on the western side of Samaria and approximately 10 miles east of Kfar Saba, on the northern edge of metropolitan Tel Aviv.

The news is certain to draw the ire of the United States at the daily press briefing at the State Dept. which earlier this week virtually ordered Israel to “reverse” its decision to create a new community in Gush Etzion and build homes for Jews in Jerusalem.

Plans for 2,200 new homes for Arabs in Jerusalem did not draw a whisper from the Obama Defense Minister, as reported here on Thursday,

The new homes for Elkana, where more than 4,000 people were reported as a “land grab” by the AFP news agency, a total lie since, as lawyer-journalist Lori Marcus Lowenthau wrote here yesterday, the land is not “grabbed” from anyone because it has no owners since the time of the Ottoman Empire and Jordanian occupation.

This week’s flurry of announcements for new homes is not a coincidence. Palestinian Authority negotiator Saed Erekat met with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry Wednesday to present PA chairman Mahmoud Abbas’ three-year-ultimatum that Israel withdraw from every inch of land in Judea and Samaria as well as area of Jerusalem where he claims sovereignty.

A Palestinian Authority said that Israel rejected the idea.

State Dept. spokeswoman Jen Psaki said that the meeting between Kerry and Erekat was “constructive.” But did not reveal any details.

PA Terrorists Try to Blow Up Jews in Samaria

Sunday, August 31st, 2014

Palestinian Authority terrorists set off a bomb at a bus stop in Samaria and threw two pipe bombs at passing Jewish drivers in Samaria on Sunday. No one was injured.

Police sappers were called to the Rechalim Junction where the bomb exploded. They did not find any other explosive devices and still are searching for suspects.

Motorists and passengers also escaped injury in separate pipe bomb attacks near Kedumim, on the road that connects central Samaria with Kfar Saba, north of Tel Aviv. The bombs contained screws that were meant to cause multiple injuries.

On Saturday night, Arab terrorists threw a Molotov cocktail at “Beit Meyuhas,” an historical Jewish home in the City of David, across the street from the Old City. A 45-year-old Israeli man was hospitalized for first and second-degree burns to his head.
