Jewish Man Stabbed in France; Attacker Yells “Allahu Achbar”

Friday, August 19th, 2016

A Hasidic man (Chabad), Chaim Levy, 62, was stabbed by an Arab attacker on Friday in Strasbourg, France, at 11:45 AM France Time.

Reports say the attacker yelled “Allahu Achbar”, pulled out a knife and stabbed Levy as he was walking back home from his pre-Shabbat shopping.

Levy managed to run into a bar, where they barricaded the door and called for an ambulance.

He was moderately wounded in the abdomen, but no vital organs were hit. He’s expected to make a full recovery.

The attacker was arrested.

According to The Independent, the attacker had previously stabbed a Jew in 2010, and was subsequently held in a psychiatric institute until he was released.

IDF engineers, backed by security and other Israeli forces demolished the home of Muhammad Taraiyre, in accordance with Israeli policy, which mandated the destruction of the family home of any Palestinian Authority Arab terrorist who murders an Israeli.

The eighth grader was stabbed dozens of times on the morning after having participated in a dance event organized by the local dance arts center in Kiryat Arba. Her bedroom was covered in blood by the time the security team reached her, witnesses said.

She passed away a few hours after the attack in Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem, and was laid to rest in the ancient Jewish cemetery in Hebron.

One of the Rapid Response Team security personnel who raced to the scene when the infiltrator’s presence was detected was also critically injured at the scene. Yehoshua Gilboa is a member of a famiy that has already lost two sons to terrorism, and is a volunteer with the Kiryat Arba security team.

Shuki Gilboa was stabbed by the attacker, and also sustained a bullet wound as the result of friendly fire during the clash with the terrorist. He ultimately lost the sight in his right eye as a result of the battle but doctors at Hadassah Ein Kerem Medical Center were able to save his life.

Update: Hareidi Man Stabbed Near Mount of Olives

Thursday, August 11th, 2016

An Arab stabbed a young Hareidi (Ultra-Orthodox) man with a screwdriver in the Beit Hakhoshen (A-Tur) area and fled. The attack happened around 2:30 PM.

The Israeli civilian had exited the Mount of Olives cemetery at about 2:30 p.m. after visiting the grave of a Hasidic rabbi who passed away in July. According to the Jerusalem Police, he was walking towards a nearby bus stop when an Arab man apparently approached him and pushed him to the ground. The attacker then stabbed him several times with a screwdriver and escaped the scene.

The Jewish victim then boarded one of the buses and was taken to a nearby police outpost. He reported the attack to the policemen who called in medical teams and summoned additional police forces to conduct searches for the escaped terrorist.

Magen David Adom paramedics treated the Jewish victim, who sustained stab wounds to his back and neck and was in light condition. He was transported, fully conscious, to Hadassah Mount Scopus Medical Center where doctors said that he was in stable condition.

Female Arab Terrorist Rendered Harmless by Police in Hebron

Tuesday, August 9th, 2016

A phenomenon called “death by IDF” sometimes involves very emotional young adult Arabs who seek to end their days in a “blaze of glory and martyrdom” by attacking Israeli security forces, hoping to be shot and killed.

On Tuesday, a woman from the Palestinian Authority arrived at the Hebron security checkpoint leading to the Cave of the Patriarchs and pulled out a knife, threatening the Border Guard Police officers on duty.

The forces responded to the threat from the “terrorist” with pepper spray, and subdued the wannabe attacker.

She was taken into custody and transferred to security personnel for further questioning to determine what had prompted her to carry out the attack.

No one was injured in the incident.

Syrian Refugee Kidnapped, Raped, Stabbed and Beheaded in Istanbul

Thursday, August 4th, 2016

A young Syrian man who fled the certain dangers of his homeland to what he thought was the safety of a new life in Istanbul has been found tortured to death, so badly mutilated that his friends had to identify him by his pants.

According to the report in Pink News, Wisam Sankari was gay — a status not well tolerated in the increasingly conservative society developing in Turkey, led by the Islamist AK (Justice and Development) Party headed by President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

There is also growing resentment among Turkish citizens against Syrian refugees, who are perceived to be a threat to employment and school opportunities for locals and other economic issues in the country.

Sankari arrived in Istanbul, the city once known as Constantinople, about a year ago after fleeing the civil war in Syria. The man was found dead during the last week in July, according to Cumhuriyet and other local news reports, which said his mutilated body was found in Yenikapi.

In fact, “They had cut Wisam violently… so violent that two knives had broken inside him. They had beheaded him. His upper body was beyond recognition, his internal organs were out. We could identify our friend from his pants,” said a friend, Rayan, who spoke with KaosGL.org.

This time they killed the young Syrian refugee, but it was not his first experience with abduction or torture at the hands of a band of men. His friends turned to alleged United Nations human rights advocates, who did nothing. Neither did local police.

“About five months ago a group kidnapped Wisam in Fatih. They took him to a forest, beat him and raped him,” Rayan said. “They were going to kill him but Wisam saved himself by jumping at the road. We complained to the police headquarters but nothing happened.”

Sankari and others had been threatened several times with rape, and more, several times by male groups armed with knives. They also had to leave a house in which they were living due to their obvious sexual orientation. “People around would constantly stare at us,” he said.

Another friend, Gorkem, told KaosGL.org that his friends had warned the victim not to leave the house due to recent threats, but he insisted on leaving “for 15-20 minutes.” When he didn’t return, the group panicked, and went to the Association for Solidarity with Asylum Seekers and Migrants (ASAM), which sent them to Fatih police headquarters.

“On Sunday police called us,” he said. They took the group of friends to Yenikapi to identify the body. Needless to say, they were horrified. Another friend, “Diya,” talked about also having been kidnapped twice before.

“They let me go in Cerkezkoy and I barely got home one time. I went to the United Nations for my identification but they did not even respond to that. No one cares about us. They just talk. I get threats over the phone.

“It does not matter if you are Syrian or Turkish — if you are gay you are everyone’s target.”

Turkey is currently under a three-month state of emergency after an attempted but failed coup to bring down the government.

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan told reporters last month that the move was aimed at effectively and swiftly taking steps to “eliminate the threat to democracy… the rule of law and the rights and freedom of our citizens.”

Any Syrian refugee will tell the reader, sadly, that such majestic concepts are not intended to cover the safety and well-being of those who fled to Turkey believing it a place in which to take shelter and begin a new life.

That, they discovered, was just another question mark at best.
