Arabs Attack Police on Temple Mount [video]

Sunday, September 13th, 2015

Jerusalem Arabs camped out in the Al Aqsa mosque early Sunday morning and attacked police with firecrackers, rocks, metal rods and foreign objects in a serious escalation of violence despite a recent government decision to ban two violent groups from the holy site.

Sunday morning’s clash broke out shortly after dawn, 12 hours before the beginning of Rosh HaShanah.

Intelligence reports that masked Arabs were preparing a massive attack Sunday enabled the police to surprise the rioters, who had prepared to block the entrance to the mosque so that police could not force them inside.

After a battle of approximately 15 minutes, police put an end to the riot and also confiscated a suspected pipe bomb from the entrance to the mosque.

A video that was provided to Sky News Arabic clearly shows men and women who were well-prepared for the battle. They used the mosque as a launching point for attacking police, who then briefly closed off the entrance to the Temple Mount.

Minister Uri Ariel of the Bayit Yehudi (Jewish Home), a champion for the right of Jews to pray on the Temple Mount, arrived at the scene. The government earlier this year banned ministers from visiting the Temple Mount as part of an official agreement to tone down violence,

The understanding did not last more than several months, and Arab groups pay men and women to arrive at the Temple Mount every day to harass and attack Jews and non-Jewish tourists.

Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon recently issued a decree banning two radical Muslim groups from the Temple Mount, but he only touched the tip of the iceberg. For every group that is banned, there are a dozen ready to take their place.

Arab media, both inside and outside Israel, are behind the incitement, and Sky News Arabic posted a tweet on Sunday from the Palestinian Authority official for Jerusalem stating that an “Israeli escalation will grow in the coming days,” apparently referring to the approaching Jewish holidays.

Sky News Arabic’s report of this morning’s clash was typical of biased information that incites hatred and violence.

The report, with the help of Google Translate and editing for grammar, stated:

Israeli occupying forces Sunday [raided] Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem and the Palestinian territories, where [there were] worshipers, and in an effort to pave the way for hardcore settlers to enter the holy site for Muslims.

The head of the Waqf Council in Jerusalem, Sheikh Abdel Azim Salhab, told Sky News Arabic, ‘The raid comes in the context of the ongoing Israeli attempts to Judaize Al-Aqsa Mosque.’

He called on Arab and Islamic countries to protect the site. Israeli forces and threw sound bombs and tear gas on worshipers and civilians [Worshippers] in the mosque [acted] to prevent the ultra-Orthodox Jews to break into the campus for the establishment of religious rituals on the occasion of the Jewish New Year, according to sources/

The past days of protests at the Al-Aqsa Mosque organized by Palestinian militants say that Israel is seeking to allow Jews to practice their faith in the compound, or even to remove the mosque to pave to build a new structure.

The video below of police on the Temple Mount this morning was posted on Rotter.net from a Facebook page:

PA May Have Helped Kill Abu Ein by Refusing IDF Medic’s Help

Friday, December 12th, 2014

Sky News footage of the confrontation between the IDF and the Palestinian Authority minister who eventually died shows that Arabs may have prevented his life from being saved because they refused the help of an IDF medic.

Ziad Abu Ein, the “Minister for Settlements,” which actually means the “Minister against Settlements,” was leading a protest march towards the Jewish community of Adei Ad when soldiers blocked the protesters from continuing.

Abu Ein refused to accept the orders from soldiers and yelled at them “dog” as well other expletives. At one point a soldier briefly grabbed him by the neck.

Abu Ein , who had a heart condition and suffered from high blood pressure, then sat down, short of breath.

Previous video footage, almost always  taken by Arab photojournalists who more frequently than not edit their work to frame Israel and make  the Palestinian Authority as the victim, did not show the women soldier trying to administer aid to Abu Ein.

Arabs on the scene refused to let her help, and the Sky News commentator who broadcast the video footage, which can be seen here, said that it raises a question, “Had he been left there with the treatment of the Israeli medic, he may have survived.”

He also noted that there is not video footage to substantiate claims that  soldier hit Abu Ein in his chest with his helmet or with a rifle butt.

Evidence form the autopsy showed that Abu Ein was a prime candidate for death. Evidence from the autopsy showed that more than 80 percent of his blood vessels were blogged, and the refusal to accept immediate help from a Jew from ”occupation army” instead of wasting precious time and hauling him off to a hospital could have led to his death.

The Palestinian Authority has claimed that the autopsy conducted by an Israel, Jordanian and PA doctor  prove “without a doubt” that Abu Ein was beaten, while the official autopsy report states that he died of a heart attack which likely was brought on by stress.

Soldiers stopped the protest march to prevent certain violence that would have occurred had Abu Ein’s group reached Adei Ad.

They used tear gas, a standard riot dispersal method, to turn back the rioters, and Abu Ein very likely may have been short of breath from inhaling the gas.

Almost unmentioned in the news report of the clash and the minister’s death is that he has been using his position of minister to incite riots and that in 1979 he personally set off a bomb explosion that killed two Israelis and wounded 36 others during a Lag B’Omer celebration in Tiberias.

He fled to the United States, was extradited to the United States in 1981 and served three years in jail before Israel cut short his life sentence and released him along with 11,50 other terrorists and security prisoners in exchange for three Israeli prisoners held in Lebanon.

I would write that Abu Ein finally received justified punishment, but that would be considered incitement.
