Tel Aviv Court Sentences Killer of IDF Sgt. Almog Shiloni to Life in Prison

Wednesday, September 14th, 2016

The Arab terrorist who murdered 20-year-old Israeli Air Force Sgt. Almog Shiloni of Modi’in was sentenced to life in prison Wednesday by the Tel Aviv District Court.

Nur al-Din Abu Hashayeh was convicted for the murder a few months ago. Hashayeh was age 18 when he left his home in Shechem to infiltrate into Israel the day before stabbing Shiloni to death.

He told investigators during interrogation that he traveled to the site with the specific goal of killing an Israeli soldier in order to become a shahid, an Islamic martyr. In this way he knew he could earn a generous monthly salary for his family from the Palestinian Authority government and also would gain eternal fame as well. It is likely the killer succeeded in gaining a generous monthly stipend for his family from the Ramallah government, which pays the families of convicted Arab terrorists imprisoned in Israel in accordance with a scale rated to the severity of the attack, the number of victims and length of the prison sentence.

Hashayeh carried out his attack at midday in the HaHaganah train station in south Tel Aviv on November 10, 2014; he used a large kitchen knife to stab the young officer repeatedly and then tried to steal his M-16 military rifle before fleeing the scene.

Shiloni died of his wounds within a few hours. An estimated 1500 people came to escort the soldier to his final resting place.

Hashayeh was caught and then indicted for the murder by Israeli prosecutors the day after the attack, right after the young soldier died.

Police Block South Tel Aviv Residents From Cinemateque

Saturday, December 19th, 2015

Police blocked the entrance of dozens of residents of South Tel Aviv into the Cinemateque where a group of left-wing NGOs were discussing how to further assist the illegal infiltrators living in Israel.

The Israeli residents were protesting outside the Cinemateque where the discussions were happening, as they see the illegal infiltrators as a danger to their neighborhood, which has become a popular final destination for many illegals.

Numerous South Tel Aviv residents have reported being harassed by the infiltrators, crime has risen, and there have been a number of high-profile rapes, including of the elderly, committed by the illegals.

The residents view the NGOs as helping and enabling the illegals to stay in their neighborhood through money, legal advise, and general support.

South Tel Aviv House Damaged by Gaza Missile Junk

Wednesday, July 16th, 2014

A house in south Tel Aviv was struck Wednesday morning by shrapnel falling from an interception by the Iron Dome anti-missile defense system.

At least four missiles were intercepted in the Gush Dan region when Hamas terrorists fired a missile barrage at central Israel at about 9:20 am.

The “gift from Gaza,” as one of the occupants of the Tel Aviv household put it, slammed into the couple’s living room, dropping straight through the roof. “It had this burning smell,” he added.

Last week, Israelis in south Tel Aviv made a habit of looking up at the sky to watch the rockets fired from Gaza as they were being intercepted by the Iron Dome over Tel Aviv. One missile landed near a gas station in south Tel Aviv, but it didn’t stop most of the rest of the neighborhood from watching the trajectory until it became clear it was heading directly for them. Home Front Command and Israel Police officials are repeatedly warning curious Israelis not to touch any shrapnel they encounter after Iron Dome interceptions.

Such items may still be coated with explosives or other poisonous material, and often are sharp or deadly in other ways.

From Holocaust To Rebirth

Wednesday, April 30th, 2014

Last year, together with my high school friends from Yeshiva Bnei Akiva Givat Shmuel, I joined the Annual March to Poland in the footsteps of the Shoah.

As soon as I stepped off the plane, I could feel the gray, empty and lifeless weather that prevails in Poland, and instantly realized that Poland is a place devoid of life. It rains or snows almost all the time at this time of the year, and there is hardly a glimmer of sunlight. How different it is with our tiny country blessed with good weather, blue skies and a shining, smiling sun.

During the tour, we saw the Polish villages and towns where Jews lived before the war. As we continued our trip, we visited the ghettos and saw firsthand the living conditions (if you can call it that – for which there are inadequate words to describe). It was obvious that all the members of the delegation found it most difficult to grasp this nightmarish reality wherein the Jews were forced to live. In each housing unit, 20 people were forced to share the meager food provided for such a group and live as normal a family life as possible under the harshest of conditions.

After completing our visit to the villages and ghettos, we came to the most difficult part of our journey – a visit to the death camps.

First, at Auschwitz; we saw all the Jewish valuables and stolen property that remained, from the dishes and eating utensils they carried with them, to babies’ shoes. It was staggering to look at this chilling display, and at the same time marvel at how people who were limited in what they could take with them, nevertheless chose to take their tallit and tefillin. I then understood that in that gray and chilling reality, there still shone the light that is Yisrael. And despite all the difficulties they endured, their devotion to the Creator remained steadfast under all circumstances. The faith and optimism that accompanies every Jew was so much an integral part of their identity that they refused to leave holy valuables and sacred objects, although this could likely cost their lives.

Another thought that came to mind was how much we must appreciate even the smallest thing, and not to put down the smallest blessing we have, whether it is with food or clothing, and even the more simple. Also, I thought about how we treat our own tallit and tefillin, that for which people were willing to forfeit their lives in order to perform these mitzvot. Things we have today should not be taken for granted.

At one point, when we entered a building where 600 Jews lived in sub-human conditions, our guide asked us to remove our shoes and socks as we walked around the cabin, so we should be able to physically feel the cold. After a few moments, it was obvious that most were shivering and could hardly move about. Before we got frost bite, our guide then instructed us to put back our shoes and socks. It was only after we removed our shoes that we were able to feel somewhat the conditions that existed at the time.

And unlike us, they were not able to put on some shoes when they felt the bitter cold. In addition, they were forced to do slave labor, while we were only receiving a description from our guide. We were sure this was only a drill to demonstrate a point, and in a few moments we would be able to put back our shoes. But not them. Even to think about shoes or a blanket or coat to warm up was a fantasy light years distant away from any reality.

Government Failure, NGO Support, Fan Illegal Migrant Flame

Wednesday, January 8th, 2014

The past few days in Israel have seen a well organized protest campaign of thousands of illegal African migrants, mostly from Eritrea and the Sudan, on the roads, in front of the Knesset, and in a park in central Tel Aviv. The demonstrations, on behalf of an estimated 50,000 illegal migrants, is coordinated with the hunger strike of some 130 prisoners in Saharonim prison, who are slated for deportation to their home countries.

Meanwhile, the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) representative in Israel Walpurga Englbrecht blasted Israel’s new semi-open Holot facility in the south, saying it is a detention center for all intents and purposes.

She’s right, of course. Israel is facing a major social and demographic crisis, begun in the 1990s, as local wars in the Horn of Africa began to result in poverty and hunger, driving out hundreds of thousands of people in search of work. This influx of cheap, illegal labor happened just in time to fill in for the missing Arab workers from the newly created Palestinian Authority, whose entry into Israel was being curbed because of rampant terrorism.

In a manner reminiscent of the illegal Mexican migrant workers situation in the American South West until about the market crash of 2008, Israeli business, especially agriculture, but industry as well, cultivated the illegal African migration.

She’s also selective in her view of the migrant worker crisis in the region. While Israel to date has deported some 13,000 Africans out of an estimated 60,000, all them leaving willingly, according to the authorities—Saudi Arabia has been forcibly deporting more than half a million legal migrants, against their will, back to their home countries across the region.

One of the reasons may be that while the Sudanese and Eritreans in the Israeli democracy enjoy the right to assemble and the right to demonstrate – similar behavior would land them in prison, if not worse, in The Kingdom.

Englbrecht was also correct in pointing out that Israel acted in a most unprofessional and irresponsible manner in its treatment of the influx of migrants. “The Israeli government awarded temporary shelter to many Eritreans and Sudanese, but for many of them their status is being changed drastically,” she told the Army Radio. “One of the problems was that these people have never been processed properly, to discover if they were refugees or employment seekers.”

Englbrecht said Israel had made a big mistake by not discovering early on why these Africans had left their countries, and why had they crossed three different borders on the way.

What she didn’t mention was the fact that, on top of mishandling the illegal migrants, as supply began to outweigh the demand for labor in Israel, Israel was also neglecting and mistreating Israel’s poorest citizens, whose neighborhoods were eventually invaded by a myriad unemployed, uneducated, downtrodden foreigners.

At that point, under the poor management of a succession of governments run by Labor, Likud, Kadima and Likud again, the true magnitude of Israeli suffering under the lawless rule of these supposed “refugees” was being swept under the rug.

An NGO named Eitan-Center for Israeli Immigration Policy, documented an astonishing history of official lies about illegal acts committed by Africans against Israel’s most defenseless population: the working poor and the elderly, by and large of Sephardi descent, were stuck, economically immobilized, in perpetual purgatory.

South Tel Aviv Residents Protest, to Taunts by African Infiltrators and Leftists Enablers

Monday, June 24th, 2013

On Sunday evening, a hundred residents of south Tel Aviv, as well as former MK Michael Ben-Ari, demonstrated in Neve Sha’anan’s Levinsky Park, following the stabbing spree carried out by the illegal African infiltrators that have taken over this section of Tel Aviv.

The protesters claimed that the police have abandoned their neighborhoods, and have not done anything to stop the downward slide that has turned this Tel Aviv neighborhood into the most dangerous place in Israel.

Violence, stabbings, rape, and shootings have become commonplace.

During the protest, police kept thousands of African infiltrators as well as the members of Leftwing activist groups that enable and help these illegal infiltrators, away from the protesters, though that didn’t stop both the infiltrators and activists from jeering and taunting the Tel Aviv residents.

Still, it was probably the most police protection these citizens have received in months.
