Police Arrest Teen Stabbers of Elderly Jewish Women in Jerusalem

Monday, May 30th, 2016

Israel Police have cleared for release the details of the investigation into an attack by three teen terrorists on a group of elderly Jewish women in their 70s and 80s on May 10.

The women were strolling down a Jerusalem path at about 8:30 am to enjoy a sunny Israeli holiday when they were stabbed by the Arab teens. The attackers were caught and the details of their plot have now been revealed thanks to evidence gathered by the meticulous efforts of a joint operation by Shin Bet intelligence agents and Israel Police.

The two security forces tracked down the terrorists after they attacked the elderly women on Israel’s Memorial Day while they were resting on a bench along the path near the promenade in Jerusalem’s Armon HaNatziv neighborhood.

The three Arab terrorists are minors ages 16-17 from the neighborhood of Jabel Mukhaber, a hotbed of terrorism – and their attack was pre-planned, according to a statement released by police. Two of the suspects were arrested on May 19.

According to the police statement, the three teens decided to meet at a small supermarket in Jabel Mukaber, armed with knives and an axe which they had brought from home. The three then proceeded in the direction of the promenade where they waited for their Jewish victims. A third suspect left the scene after becoming afraid that the attack would lead to the demolition of his parents’ home.

Two of the terrorists targeted the group of five elderly women as they were walking along the path near the Shalom Forest, and prepared to attack and stab them. The women sat down on a bench along the path during their walk, passing the two Arab youths in the process. The two, both wearing masks, then attacked them from behind.

They then fled the scene in the direction of their village while throwing and hiding their weapons on the way. One made it home and the other took refuge in his school. “Later on, one of the attackers returned to retrieve the weapons and hid them in their village,” said the police statement.

The two communicated with the third via the WhatsApp social networking application and Facebook, elated with their success and determined to carry out another. But two of the young terrorists were almost immediately tracked down; after their arrest and interrogation they admitted to the third minor being part of their terror cell. His job had been to finish the job of attacking the elderly women in case the first two terrorists were killed before they could finish off their victims. Police arrested the third Arab minor shortly after.

It also emerged during the investigation that the mother of one of the suspects was arrested a week ago for attempting a stabbing terror attack at the Zeitim checkpoint entrance to Jerusalem. She failed in her mission.

“The police will continue to operate with determination to ensure the security of the capital’s residents,” said the local Jerusalem police commander.

Passengers Staying off Jerusalem Buses

Thursday, October 15th, 2015

The number of passengers riding Jerusalem buses has dropped 30 percent since the recent wave of terror, according to unofficial estimates.

The decline is not surprising, particularly after this week’s Jerusalem Arab murder spree that claimed the lives of three Jews in a bus stabbing-shooting attack in the area of Armon HaNatziv, located between Talpiot and the terror hornet’s nest in Jabel Mukahber.

Jerusalem Arabs Indicted for Plot to Bring Pipe Bombs to Temple Mount

Friday, October 9th, 2015

Indictments have been filed against three Jerusalem Arabs, including one minor, who were involved in making pipe bombs to attack police on the Al Aqsa mosque and compound on the Temple Mount during the recent High Holidays.

A gag order on the arrests of the gang was lifted Friday. Two adults from Jabel Mukaber, an Arab hotbed of terror and adjacent to the Jewish neighborhood of Talpiot, were charged with buying equipment and explosives for the bombs.

The two Arabs took materials to the home of a minor, who made 13 pipe bombs, 10 of which that were discovered during a police raid before last month’s Rosh HaShanah holiday.

The other three bombs were smuggled and later discovered on the Temple Mount, where Muslims forbid Jews from bringing any objects that are considered religious.

Muslims have accused Israel of violating their freedom of worship by preventing them from ascending to the holy site.

If “freedom of worship” means praying with pipe bombs, they are right.

Jerusalem Arabs Arrested for Brutally Beating Religious Jewish Couple

Monday, August 3rd, 2015

This is the news that the establishment media don’t want you to read because it interferes with their hate-fest against religious Jews and “settlers.”

Indictments have been filed against six Jerusalem Arabs whom police arrested for assaulting a Hareidi man and a religious couple in the Talpiot neighborhood.

The Hareidi Kikar Shabbat website published the report, but Israel’s left-leaning media, which like to wear their bleeding hearts on the public’s shoulders, were silent.

They continue to berate the entire religious community and the “settler movement” for last week’s arson-murder that everyone assumes was carried out by “hilltop youth” because the word “revenge” was scribbled in Hebrew on the wall of one of two houses in the heart of the Samarian village of Duma, that were attacked with Molotov cocktails and set on fire.

The same media were not interested in reporting that six Arabs, including three minors, used brass knuckles, a knife and a club to assault religious Jews. The language of the Hareidi website that reported the attack used a Hebrew expression that might have been “clean language” for sexual molestation of the young woman, but this has not been confirmed.

Three Jerusalem Arabs with the same last name and ages 19, 20 and 22, along with three minors aged 16 and 17, were indicted for two separate attacks.

They appeared at the Armon NaNatziv walkway in Talpiot and spotted a man, who appeared to be Hareidi, looking towards the Temple Mount.

They mocked him and then struck him with brass knuckles and a knife, leaving him bleeding.  The man was hospitalized and required stitches.

The next day, the attackers appeared at the same spot and started up a conversation with a young religious couple.

They told the man to stay where he was and that the girl should go with them, saying they would give her back to him after 10 minutes.

The Arab attackers stopped the women from trying to call the police and assaulted her and the young man. They knocked his kippa off his head and attacked them both with brass knuckles. The girl began reciting the “shema” prayer that Jews say when facing probable death.

The man was knocked on the ground and lost consciousness momentarily. He suffered a broken nose, and the woman suffered cuts and bruises on her head and shoulders.

Three Jerusalem Arabs Jailed for 8 Years for Planning Attack on Wedding Hall

Tuesday, June 16th, 2015

Three Jerusalem Arabs will be spending 7 to 8 years in jail for planning to disguise themselves as Hareidi Jews to enter a wedding hall and carry out a mass murder.

The Jerusalem District Court sentenced two of the men to eight years in prison, and a third terrorist who had last-minute thoughts and dropped out from the plot received a term of seven years.

All three were between 19 and 21 years old when arrested and are from the Jabel Mukaber neighborhood, adjacent to Talpiot..

The plan had reached an advance stage, when they had found a Palestinian Authority arms dealer to sell them an Uzi sub-machine gun for $12,000 and had staked out the wedding hall in the Bayit Began neighborhood.
