Fearful Way Home

Thursday, January 15th, 2015

Shots were fired at four Israeli vehicles in Route 465, in the Benjamin Regional Council, on Wednesday evening, January 14. Although no injuries or casualties were sustained, the shooting is an uncommon event that could signify the deterioration of the already fragile sense of security, for the residents of Israeli communities in the Benjamin Regional Council.

Tazpit News Agency spoke to Yechiel Kapach, the secretary of the Neve Tzuf (Halamish) community located in the Samaria hills.

“A terror attack that includes shooting is very rare, while stone-throwing terror attacks are much more common. They occur on a daily basis,” Kapach told Tazpit.

“The number of attacks depends on the general political situation in the country. When tension rises we see more terror attacks and when tension goes down we see less.”

Terror attacks include stone-throwing, shooting incidents, firework directed at people and cars as well as usage of Molotov cocktails. Tazpit News Agency reports that during December 2014 there were 27 stone-throwing incidents on the 465 route alone.

The 465 route is used by Israelis and Palestinians alike. It starts in the Benjamin Regional Council and crosses the green-line at the Rantis Checkpoint. Kapach told Tazpit News Agency that “the second you cross the Rantis Check point, it’s the wild wild west.”

“There is a real problem of sovereignty and enforcement of the Israeli law. We feel the lack of sovereignty in civil issues such as driving or illegal building for example, and it projects onto security issues,” he pointed out.

Kapach also added that Neve-Tzuf’s inhabitants felt so disappointed by the IDF’s inability to control security related incidents, that they started their own civil guard.

“I hope Israel can strengthen its sovereignty and enforce Israeli law so that real security will prevail.”

Police Corner Terrorists near Paris in Hostage Situation

Friday, January 9th, 2015

French police have cornered two terrorists responsible for a massacre in Paris earlier this week. The two are holed up in a printing factory north of Paris.

According to initial reports, two people were killed in a shootout between the suspects and police, and 20 others were wounded. However, French police later denied reports of fatalities.

At least one person is being held hostage by the terrorists.

The suspects have been named as brothers Cherif and Said Kouachi. The two murdered 12 people two days ago in an attack targeting the French magazine Charlie Hebdo. The publication was targeted because it had published cartoons mocking radical Islam and terrorism.

The attack spurred demonstrations worldwide on behalf of free speech. Protests in France, Britain, Belgium, Israel and elsewhere have expressed support for the right to freedom of expression. Many have held signs saying Je suis Charlie (I am Charlie).

Dramatic Video of Police Killing Knife-Wielding Man at 770 [video]

Tuesday, December 9th, 2014

The Crown Heights Info website has released a dramatic video showing the entire attempted murder of Jews at the Chabad 770 Torah study hall in the pre-dawn hours Tuesday and a policeman’s neutralizing the man with a single bullet.

Footage shows the man standing in the Beit Midrash study hall with a knife. A policeman pulled out a gun and said, “Hands up.”

The man raised his hands but as soon as the police officer returned the gun to his holster, the man moved menacingly towards the police officer and then started running through the Torah study hall, yelling, “I want to kill a Jew” while policemen tried to trap him until a gunshot ended the chase.

The victim suffered serious wounds but his condition is not life-threatening. The attacker died in the hospital from his bullet wound.

Netanyahu Blames PA Chairman ‘Abu Mazen’ for Shooting of Temple Mount Activist

Thursday, October 30th, 2014

The streets of Jerusalem are quiet right now, and a tense calm has settled on the city.

Israel’s security establishment met this morning (Thursday, Oct. 30) with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to decide how to meet the challenge that now lies ahead.

“I would like to send my best wishes for a full and quick recovery to Yehuda Glick, who is now fighting for his life,” Netanyahu said at the start of the meeting.

Participating in the discussion were Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon, Public Defense Minister Itzhak Aharonovitch, ISA Director Yoram Cohen, Israel Police Commissioner Insp.-Gen. Yohanan Danino, Jerusalem District Police Commander Moshe Edri, Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat and representatives from the Attorney General’s office, the Justice Ministry and the IDF.

Netanyahu praised the Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) and the Israel Police for quickly solving “this act of terrorism.”

The prime minister added, “A few days ago, I said that we were facing a wave of incitement by radical Islamic elements and by Palestinian Authority Chairman Abu Mazen who said that Jews must be prevented from going up to the Temple Mount by any means possible.

“I still have not heard from the international community so much as one word of condemnation for these inflammatory remarks.

“The international community needs to stop its hypocrisy and take action against inciters, against those who try to change the status quo.

“I have ordered significant reinforcements so that we can maintain both security in Jerusalem and the status quo in the holy places. This struggle might be long, and here, like in other struggles, we must first of all, lower the flames.

“No side should take the law into its own hands. We must be level-headed and act with determination and responsibility, and so we shall.”
