Live TV Reporter Caught Red-Handed Lying About Israelis Shooting Unarmed Arab [video]

Friday, October 16th, 2015

For the second time in less than one week there was violence at the Damascus Gate on Wednesday in Jerusalem. This time, like many others recently, was captured on video or the rampaging terrorist with a weapon would surely have been described as an innocent young man, shot down in cold blood. More on this, below.

The first attack took place on Saturday, Oct. 10. A 19 year old Arab resident of Jerusalem stabbed two members of Israel’s border police. The stabber was neutralized at the scene as he continued attempting to stab other officers.

The second incident took place late afternoon on Wednesday, Oct. 14. A Palestinian Arab male, later identified as Basel Sider, 19, was observed acting suspiciously. The man was wearing a camouflage t-shirt and pants. When Israeli officers approached him, he lunged at them and broke through the Damascus Gate checkpoint line. Israeli police repeatedly shouted for him to halt. As the Arab continued running with what appeared and was later confirmed to be a knife blade in his right hand, he was shot dead by Israeli officers on the scene.

Had there been no video, the Israeli officers who shot the terrorist would have been labeled murderers and executioners. Acting Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas has been only the most prominent individual to have made such horrific claims, paying no heed to the facts, recently denouncing the shooting deaths of rampaging terrorists as “field executions.”

In Wednesday’s incident, the only thing that was immediately known was that a young Arab man was shot dead by Israelis.

An MSNBC journalist was on the scene when the incident took place. Of course, as with athletic referees before the time of videotape, eyewitnesses are not always accurate in their observations. That is surely particularly so when an eyewitness may have a particular bias. This journalist was removed from Gaza for sloppy reporting during the summer 2014 conflict in Gaza.

What that MSNBC reporter, Ayman Moyheldin, tweeted out on Wednesday was, “I just witnessed the shooting of man running down the stairs towards Damascus gate before being gunned down.” Twenty-five minutes later, he tweeted again, this time writing that just at he was about to broadcast live “Israeli security opened fire on a Palestinian man dressed in camouflage. Killed instantly.”

The MSNBC eyewitness journalist filed a live report to his anchor. According to the report by Mohyeldin, the Arab man was not dressed in camouflage and he had no knife in his hands. The reporter also said that there were no injured Israelis on the scene, the Israelis removed the Arab’s clothes, probably in search of a bomb, and there was none on his body. Moyheldin assured his viewers that the Arab man “did not look to me to be particularly armed.”

In other words, according to “eyewitness” Mohyeldin, Israelis had just shot to death an innocent man.

But Mohyeldin’s anchor in the studio had already seen the video taken by Mohyeldin’s cameramen.

As Jeff Dunetz at The Lid explained, José Diaz Balart interrupted Mohyeldin on-air, and explained to the reporter and the audience that Mohyeldin’s version of events did not track the facts revealed on the videotape.

Diaz Balart then showed a screen capture from the video, which clearly shows the Arab man wearing camouflage shirt and pants, and holding a knife in his right hand.

Moyheldin attempted a few more times to rectify himself, but Diaz Balart stopped him cold. In fact, the news show host reprimanded the field reporter, explaining that it was always essential to provide a full context for any incident being reported.

Yeah, what he said.

1 Arab Rioter Dead, 9 Israel Police Officer Hurt in Shuafat Clashes

Thursday, October 8th, 2015

Nine Israeli police officers were wounded and a 20-year-old Arab terrorist was killed Thursday evening in clashes that took place in the northern Jerusalem neighborhood of Shuafat.

Masked Arabs attempted to block Israeli security personnel from entering the neighborhood to search the home of the terrorist who stabbed a yeshiva student earlier in the day at a Light Rail station in the capital.

The rioting Arabs hurled firebombs and improvised explosive devices (IEDs) at the security forces.

Also Thursday, a 20-year-old Jewish man was stabbed by an Arab terrorist in the northern Israeli town of Afula. A few hours later, an IDF soldier was stabbed twice in the chest in another terror attack in the same town. According to Yossi Fahima, director of Magen David Adom emergency services in Afula, the victim was conscious when he was evacuated to a nearby medical center in serious condition.

The terrorist was captured and arrested within minutes of the attack. “The terrorist was not wounded, other than from blows he received from civilians, and [he] was rescued from the angry mob,” Fahima said.

Jerusalem Mayor – Armed and Dangerous

Wednesday, October 7th, 2015

Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat caused a minor storm yesterday when he was spotted in the Beit Hanina neighborhood, next to Shuafat, armed with what appeared to Israel’s Channel 1 as a mini-assault rifle, which the reporter misidentified as a variation of the Galil. The Arabs have been violently rioting in Beit Hanina and Shuafat.

Channel 1 was very concerned that the mayor was walking around Jerusalem without a proper license for the weapon. It’s still difficult for the average Jerusalem resident (and Israeli) to get a gun license.

In fact, Barkat, who earlier this year caught a terrorist mid-attack in Jerusalem has a proper license for a .40 caliber Glock pistol (personally, I recommend the CZ P-07, but to each their own). He was using it with a RONI carbine conversion kit, which allows quick conversion of a handgun into a carbine rifle (it’s very cool). The conversion kit increases shooter accuracy.

The mayor’s office released a photo of the gun in the RONI, and the mayor’s gun license.

The mayor should know, his gun license expires at the end of the month. It’s renewal time.

Arabs Erupt in Violence Across Jerusalem, 2 Rockets in Southern Israel

Saturday, September 19th, 2015

(JNi.media) Despite a massive police reinforcement in Jerusalem, clashes between Arabs and security forces raged Friday and Saturday, with serious disturbances in several refugee camps; a rocket exploding in Sderot and a Grad intercepted over Ashkelon—the IAF retaliated.

Friday’s violent clashes in Jerusalem included serious disturbances in the Shuafat refugee camp and in the neighborhoods of A-Tur and Issawiya. Molotov cocktails injured Border Guard officers in Jabel Mukaber, a predominantly Arab neighborhood in south-east Jerusalem. Arab rioters were wounded and arrested. There was another attack on the Jerusalem light rail.

Muslim prayers on the Temple Mount ended in relative quiet Friday afternoon, but at the end of the prayers, according to Ynet, the signal was given for Arabs to start rioting at several locations in Jerusalem. Starting at 1:00 PM Friday, Arabs threw stones at police and Border Guard at Jerusalem’s Damascus Gate. In A-Tur, about half a mile from there, on Mt. Olives, masked rioters hurled stones at police and Border Guard. Officers responded with riot control gear and one rioter was injured by police.

Around 3:00 PM an Arab threw a paint bottle at the light rail tram on the Shuafat line—no one was injured.

Around 4 PM some serious disturbances developed in the Shuafat refugee camp, with dozens of youths, some masked and others wearing gas masks, throwing stones and Molotov cocktails at Border Police officers. One rioter, 18, a resident of Hebron, was arrested. The Border Guard also arrested and transferred for questioning a 17 year-old who was throwing stones at police in Wadi Joz.

There were extremely violent clashes in the Jabel Mukaber neighborhood in southern east Jerusalem, where three border policemen were injured, one moderately and two lightly, from a Molotov cocktail that was thrown at them. An Arab who was shot in the leg was taken to Shaare Zedek Medical Center in moderate to severe condition. Eight Arabs who were involved in the clashes were later arrested.

At 6:25 PM, Friday, police arrested a 17-year-old Arab who, along with several other young men, threw Molotov cocktails and stones at the security forces and a security vehicle in A-Tur. The local guard fired in the air to disperse the rioters. There were no injuries.

Around 8:00 PM, three Arabs were wounded lightly to moderately, one of them 13-years-old, during clashes between rioters and IDF and border police forces at the Rachel’s Tomb compound. The rioters threw stones and Molotov cocktails at the security forces, and in response the forces fired at them. The boy was evacuated by Magen David Adom paramedics to Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital in Jerusalem and the rest of the injured were evacuated by the Red Crescent to a hospital in the Palestinian Authority.

At 8:40 PM, sirens sounded in the city of Sderot and the Sha’ar HaNegev regional council, as a rocket hit southern Israel. The rocket, launched from the Gaza Strip, landed adjacent to a bus in the Sderot area, causing damage. Sirens sounded for a second time, at 11:31 PM, in the city of Ashkelon. That rocket was intercepted by the Iron Dome Aerial defense system. No injuries have been reported.

In response to the attacks, IAF aircraft targeted three terror sites in the northern Gaza Strip.

Lt. Col. Peter Lerner, IDF Spokesman stated: “This evening’s acts of aggression are a clear reminder of Gaza’s commitment to violent terrorism. Israeli civilians should not have to live in fear, no one should. Hamas is the ruling power in the Gaza Strip and is therefore responsible, accountable and culpable for every attack emanating from Gaza.”

These were the 10th and 11th rockets to hit Israeli territory since January 2015.

Jewish New Year Begins with Bloody Arab Violence in Jerusalem

Wednesday, September 16th, 2015

The Jewish New Year began with blood for security personnel as well as for some who were traveling on Rosh Hashana in Jerusalem and surrounds. Police who provide security at the Temple Mount in the Old City of Jerusalem spent the last three days struggling to contain increasingly violent riots in the compound as both Jordan and the United States ramped up their rhetoric against the Israeli government’s decision to enforce free access to the site by all faiths.

On Tuesday morning (Sept. 15) five police officers were injured while working to contain Arab riots on the Temple Mount for the third day in a row, the second day of the two-day Jewish holiday. Dozens of masked Palestinian Arabs hurled blocks of cement, rocks and live firecrackers at the security officers when they entered the Temple Mount compound. The violence is part of an ongoing attempt by Arabs to prevent Jews from accessing the site.

Police officers and firefighters encountered more violence in the afternoon while trying to extinguish a fire on Hagai Street in eastern Jerusalem. Arab residents of the neighborhood took the opportunity to hurl rocks and bottles at the firefighters and police officers who had responded to the emergency.

Several hours later, Jerusalem Arabs came out in force to hurl firebombs at police officers in the northern Jerusalem neighborhood of Shuafat, and by 8 pm Arab residents were rioting in the Jerusalem neighborhood of Ras al-Amud as well.

Dozens of Arab residents were also reportedly rioting in the Jerusalem neighborhood of Shiloah (Silwan) at 9:30 pm. At about the same time, Border Guard Police officers were fending off pipe bomb attacks by Arabs at the Qalandia checkpoint on the outskirts of the capital.

Also at about 9:30 pm, Arab residents shot fireworks at Jewish homes in the Jerusalem compound of Beit Orot. (About 90 minutes later, a frustrated Jewish resident in Beit Orot lost his patience and ramped up music from a speaker in the window of his home. Guess who the police decided to arrest?)

Arab terrorists hurled rocks at the Light Rail train as it traveled through the northern Jerusalem neighborhood of Shuafat at about 10 pm. None of the passengers were physically injured though several were traumatized and at least one car was damaged.

At 10:45 pm Tuesday night, just after the end of the holiday, an IDF soldier was hurt in a rock attack near the Samaria Jewish community of Har Bracha. The soldier was evacuated for treatment to Beilinson Medical Center in Petach Tikvah.

At the start of the holiday, Arab road terrorists murdered a Jewish Israeli motorist as he was driving with his wife and daughter late Sunday night (Sept. 13) in the southern Jerusalem neighborhood of Armon Hanatziv. The Arabs hurled rocks at his car, sending it careening it out of control on Rehov Asher Weiner, where it hit an electricity pole. Alexander Leiblovitch, 64, was subsequently pronounced dead at Hadassah Ein Kerem Medical Center in Jerusalem. His injured wife was admitted to the hospital and remained hospitalized in stable condition; their daughter was treated at the hospital and was released.

Jerusalem Arabs Attack Fireman and Force Police to Retreat

Saturday, September 5th, 2015

Parts of eastern Jerusalem appear to be under control of Arab anarchists.

Jerusalem police were called to the Arab dominated Shuafat neighborhood in northern Jerusalem Saturday and immediately were violently attacked by local residents.

The fire crew called the police, who then found themselves overwhelmed by the rioters and were forced to retreat, along with the firemen.

The blaze smells like an ambush because when the fireman arrived at the scene, they discovered that the fire had been extinguished. When they stated to investigate why the fire stated, dozens of Arab rioter spat on them, cursed and attacked them violently.

Two police vehicles arrived to arrest the attackers, but the police officers were not prepared for such a large number of attackers. Both the police and firefighters fled the scene.

The fire department said they view the incident as “grave” and noted this is not the first time they have been “greeted” by attackers, often several times in one day.

The department noted that firemen have been injured by attackers in previous incidents.

Jerusalem Arabs Attack Jerusalem Light Rail with Rocks

Monday, August 31st, 2015

Jerusalem Arabs on Monday returned to their masochistic hobby of throwing rocks at the Jerusalem Light Rail trains that passes though the Arab Shuafat neighborhood. Wibndwos were shattered, but there were no injuries.

If one tries to understand the reasoning for Arabs trying to disable the trains that serve the Arab population, the conclusion must be that the attackers see the trains as a symbol of the “occupation.”

It is more reasonable to assume that those who throw rocks are unemployed and therefore do not need to travel to the heart of the capital.

In other events Monday, events, a Palestinian Authority vehicle hit an Israeli police car at the Tapuach intersection in northern Samaria and sped away. No injuries were reported.
