Syrian Bomber Kills Self, Wounds 12, in Fourth Muslim Attack in a Week in Southern Germany

Monday, July 25th, 2016

A Syrian man, 27, who had been refused asylum in Germany, killed himself on Sunday with a bomb he set off near a music festival in Ansbach, Bavaria, in southern Germany. This is the fourth violent attack by Muslims in southern Germany in less than a week. According to police, 12 people were injured in the explosion, three seriously. According to state officials, the man had been denied entry to the music festival just before the explosion.

The Syrian man was carrying a backpack filled with explosives and metal parts, in what officials are saying could have been an ISIS-inspired attack. Officials also said the man had arrived in Germany two years ago and this was his third suicide attempt.

Bavarian Interior Minister Joachim Herrmann told reporters early Monday that it was not yet certain whether the man had planned to “take others with him into death.”

Police evacuated more than 2,000 people from the festival after the explosion, and cordoned off a large area around the explosion site.

According to Reuters, citing a US intelligence official (The US maintains an Army base in Ansbach), investigators are focusing on the bomber’s history before he left Syria, the reasons he was denied asylum, and why he blew himself up — was it personal, political, religious, or all three.

Last week an Afghan refugee used an axe and a knife to injured a family of four on a train in southern Germany before being shot dead by police. On Friday, nine people were killed and more than 20 injured by an Iranian in Munich, also in southern Germany. Earlier on Sunday, a 21-year-old Syrian refugee was arrested after killing a pregnant woman and wounding two people with a machete in the southwestern city of Reutlingen, near Stuttgart.

Terrorists Against the Wall

Monday, July 18th, 2016

A group of “former” Arab terrorists and their leftwing Israeli enablers held a protest in Gush Etzion on Friday, between Beitar and Efrat.

They shut down Highway 60, the main highway between Jerusalem and Gush Etzion. They held up signs with ridiculous statements on them, such as “The wall is violent”.

While my regular readers know that I am not a fan of the security wall or of Iron Dome, as these are defensive measures we use instead of fighting to win, there’s no question that the psychological shock the Jihadists and their supporters felt when the security fences and walls went up, forced them to reevaluate the “success” of their suicide bombing campaign and ability to continue them.

Almost immediately the Israeli Left and the Arabs began fighting the wall, always leaving out of their narrative the fact that the Arab terrorists were the ones responsible for it having to go up in the first place.

The group who blocked Highway 60 in Gush Etzion describe themselves as having “actively participated in the cycle of violence”, which in plain English means, the Arabs in their group were active terrorists who tried to, and perhaps succeeded in hurting and killing Jews.

In fact, it may very well be that included in this group protesting the security wall are failed suicide bombers and the people that sent them.

Of course people like that would consider the wall “violent”, as perhaps more than anything it affected their ability to kill lots of Jews, and it heavily reduced the active Arab support for their acts of terrorism.

It’s an obvious question to ask, are these “former” terrorists still supporting terror? Is “peace” simply a new tactic for their same nefarious goals?

We could talk about their one-track, mostly one-sided message, and how they don’t block the roads to Yata and Dura in colorful protest of the serial Arab terror emanating from those villages.

They explain away their one-sided protests and imbalanced messages citing the “occupation”. Their catchall word for excusing everything.

But to me, the real warning sign is how “former” terrorists, whose plans were thwarted by the security wall, are now calling to tear down one of Israel’s primary passive deterrents against suicide bombers and Arab terrorism – right in the midst of a new wave of terrorism.

I think they’ve answered the question.

Joint Israeli Security Team Captures Hamas Terrorist Cell Behind Fiery Jerusalem Bus Bombing

Sunday, May 29th, 2016

A joint operation involving IDF soldiers, Israeli Police and Israel Security Agency (ISA) operatives has ended with the arrest of the six-member Hamas terror cell that allegedly blew up a bus in Jerusalem on April 18, 2016.

The suspects manufactured and assembled the bomb that was used in the attack on Bus #12 in Jerusalem this past April, wounding 20 people. Two of the victims in the attack, a man, 30, and a woman, 28, were critically injured, six moderately and the rest sustained light injuries, including two children ages 10 and 12.

Udi Gal, spokesman for the Jerusalem Fire Dept. told the media that “enormous flames that erupted in one bus reached the other. Both buses were ignited completely and a nearby vehicle was burnt as well. Luckily, no one was trapped inside.”

The terror cell, near Bethlehem, had planned a series of attacks to be carried out in Jerusalem and surrounds, according to the ISA (Shin Bet) intelligence agency. Investigators revealed the six terrorists who comprised the cell were planning a suicide bombing. In addition, they planned to carry out shootings and vehicle ramming attacks.

According to the statement released by the Shin Bet, the investigation also revealed that two of the terrorists being held had been involved in a separate shooting attack last year.

Suspected terrorist Abdel Hamid Abu Srour, 19, died of the wounds he sustained in the attack. He was a resident of Aida, near Bethlehem.

Following Abu Srour’s death, the Hamas terror organization claimed responsibility for the attack and called him a “martyr.” Spontaneous celebrations erupted in Bethlehem and Gaza, with people passing out candy in the streets to celebrate the bombing, characterized by the Shin Bet as a suicide bombing.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu vowed in the evening just a few hours after the attack, “We will locate the men who created this bomb, we will reach the men who sent the bomber as well as the ones behind them. We will settle the account with these terrorists.”

The suicide bomber is dead. The remaining six suspects are currently being held in custody and a request to extend their remand until the end of court proceedings is expected to be submitted shortly.

58 Dead, 110 Wounded in 3 Terror Attacks on Baghdad

Tuesday, May 17th, 2016

At least 58 people died and 110 were wounded Tuesday in three separate terrorist attacks in Baghdad, all carried out by Da’esh (ISIS).

Two car bombings and a third bombing on an outdoor market took place in the Iraqi capital, all in Shi’ite neighborhoods, according to ABC News.

The worst attack was one that took place in the northeastern Sha’ab neighborhood where 38 were killed; more than 70 were wounded.

That was preceded by a car bombing at a produce market in the Dora section in southern Baghdad, where eight died and 22 others were wounded.

The day began with a roadside car bombing outside an open air market in Sadr City, immediately followed by a suicide bomber who detonated his explosives as rescue workers and others came running to help victims of the first attack. A total of 14 people died in that attack; more than 20 others were wounded, according to Iraqi security officials.

On Sunday, a Da’esh suicide bomber in the town of Taji, 12 miles (20 kilometers) north of Baghdad attacked a natural gas plant, killing 14 people and wounding at least 27 others. The flames consumed the facility and destroyed at least one of the gas-processing units.

Jerusalem Bus Bomber Dead, Other Arrests Made

Thursday, April 21st, 2016

By Jesse Lempel/TPS

Jerusalem (TPS) – The Hamas operative who detonated a bomb on a Jerusalem bus this week has died in an Israeli hospital, the Israeli police confirmed on Thursday, partially lifting a gag order on the investigation. A police spokesperson further revealed that several other suspects have been arrested.

Abdel Hamid Abu Srour, a 19-year-old Hamas operative from the town of Beit Jala near Bethlehem, detonated an explosive device on the number 12 public bus in Jerusalem on Monday, injuring 20 people, including one seriously. Abu Srour died of his wounds on Wednesday in Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem. The Shin Bet (Israeli Security Agency) characterized the bombing as a “suicide attack.”

The police, Shin Bet, and IDF conducted extensive raids in Bethlehem on Tuesday, arresting multiple Hamas activists who are suspected of helping Abu Srour plan and carry out the terror attack.

Further details of the investigation remain under a gag order.

Following Abu Srour’s death on Wednesday evening, the Hamas terror organization claimed responsibility for the attack and called him a “martyr.” Spontaneous celebrations erupted in Bethlehem and Gaza, with people passing out candy in the streets to celebrate the bus bombing.

Four victims of the terror attack are being treated at Jerusalem’s Hadassah Medical Center. Three are in the intensive care unit on respirators, said Hadassah spokeswoman Hadar Elboim on Thursday.

“We will locate the men who created this bomb, we will reach the men who sent the bomber as well as the ones behind them,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said after Monday’s terror attack. “We will settle the account with these terrorists.”

Terrorist Prematurely Explodes in Abu Dis

Sunday, January 24th, 2016

On Saturday evening, a terrorist killed himself when the bomb he was carrying blew up.

The attack happened near the Border Police checkpoint in Abu Dis, in eastern Jerusalem.

It is unclear if this was meant as a suicide bomb attack, or if the bomb blew up before the terrorist could throw it at the policemen.

No one was injured in the attack.

In December, 25 Arabs, most from around Abu Dis, were arrested as part of a Hamas cell that were planning and preparing to commit suicide bomb attacks.
