Female and Male Terrorists Shot Dead after Stabbing Attempt at Check Post

Wednesday, April 27th, 2016

Two Arab terrorists, a man an a woman, reached the Qalandiya check post just outside Jerusalem and were asked by the security force at the post to identify themselves. The female terrorist pulled out a knife and the two rushed the policemen, who called on them several times to stop. Police then shot the female attacker dead, then killed her accomplice as well.

Hamas and PA news outlets have turned the story into the “execution” of a woman and a child. Ma’an described the incident as “woman, child shot dead after alleged stab attempt,” meaning the two were running at police while armed with knives for reasons other than to stab them. The Arab news agency cites witnesses who said police shot more than 15 rounds into the woman’s body. But a video that accompanies the report only offers two single shots.

Gaza Children’s Festival Shows Toddlers Being Trained to Murder Jews [video]

Tuesday, April 26th, 2016

The Prime Minister’s Office Arab media spokesperson Ofir Gendelman tweeted an extremely sobering message late Monday on social media, the third day of Passover.

“ISIS-like brainwashing in a kids’ festival in Gaza: toddlers act out stabbing & shooting attacks against Israelis,” Gendelman tweeted.

“When Palestinians send their kids to act in this school play no wonder their kids committ (sic) attacks when they’re older” Gendelman tweeted. More to the point, who hires the teachers who write and direct these plays? Where do they get their material, and are they researching it online in Da’esh websites?

Similar plays and festivals have been broadcast on children’s television programs in Gaza as well as in the Palestinian Authority-controlled areas of Judea and Samaria for decades.

But even those programs have become increasingly cold-blooded and brutal over the past five years — indicating the increasing influence of Da’esh (ISIS) in the region.

The fruit of those past efforts ripened and was borne out this past October with the spontaneous eruption of the deadly wave of terror that burst against Israeli Jews — and some Arabs — perpetrated to a great extent by attackers who were age 21 and younger.

These are the children who grew up in the generation nurtured in the all-encompassing environment of schoolbooks, television programs, summer camps and public venues all devoted to the glorification of death, so-called “martyrdom” in the cause of murderous terrorism against Israel.

How deadly will the next generation be?

Australia: Update on the Kiddush Herring Dispute and Stabbing

Monday, April 18th, 2016

JewishPress.com received a number of updates and reports (and a lot of jokes) from members of the Australian community regarding the Kiddush Herring Dispute and Stabbing.

The CSG – Community Security Group of Victoria released the following description of the event:

At 12:18pm on Saturday 16 April, one community member stabbed another community member at Rambam Shule on Hotham Street, St Kilda East. The offender was identified but has not yet been apprehended.

It is believed that an altercation occurred inside Rambam between these two community members. The perpetrator then left the Shule, intoxicated, and is believed to have returned to his home to obtain a kitchen knife. He then returned back to the Shule and stabbed a different community member. He left the scene on foot and continued to pose a threat to other community members.

Which implies that perhaps Schnapps was also involved in the Herring dispute.

A number of readers asked, why was herring being served in a Sephardi shul?

A member of the Australian community who wishes to remain anonymous clarified some of the points to JewishPress.com:

1) The incident occurred outside the Rambam Sephardi Synagogue which is directly opposite the Chabad Yeshivah Centre.
2) The incident did NOT happen at the Kiddush or even inside. Synagogue members were unaware of the incident until they came outside.
3) The two who had been arguing and the third person who intervened and was stabbed were not regulars at the minyan. They were there for a Shabbat Chatan being celebrated upstairs in the Ramban Sephardi Bet Knesset.

JewishPress.com will continue to followup on this story as it develops.

Keep those reports and comments coming in, and Refuah Shleimah to the wounded man.

Israeli Tourist Returns Home to Jerusalem After Being Slashed in NYC Subway Station

Tuesday, April 12th, 2016

The Israeli tourist who was slashed last week by a homeless man in a New York City subway station flew home to the safety of Israel Monday night.

Avraham Fekete, 55, told JP Updates in an exclusive interview conducted in Yiddish he had been in “a lot of pain and soaked from blood” after being stabbed late Thursday night. But as soon as he reached the street and was seen, two “Good Samaritans” helped him put pressure on a neck wound to stop the bleeding and called police. That injury and stab wounds to his face, arms and hands were first treated at the scene by EMS medics who were summoned by police officers.

He was then evacuated to Bellevue Hospital, where he was listed in stable condition and remained through the weekend. Fekete was released from the hospital in time to board a plane to return home to his family in Jerusalem — with 20 stitches to be seen by his own doctor.

A Jerusalem resident, Fekete had traveled to New York ahead of his sixth child’s wedding. He told JP Updates he is “thankful to G-d it ended this way, because the doctors told me if he would have stabbed me a little deeper in my neck I would have been in a life-threatening situation.”

Police believe the motive behind the attack was robbery and are not classifying it as a hate crime, according to New York’s CBS 2 television news.

There have been more than 1,000 stabbing attacks across New York City since January 1. The number of knife attacks are rising at a 24 percent increase compared to last year, “making NYC subway riders very wary,” CBS 2 News reported.
