Forest Fire in Jerusalem Threatening Main Power Company Station [video]

Wednesday, June 15th, 2016

A forest fire that broke out below Mount Menuhot in Givat Shaul, at the entrance to Jerusalem, is threatening to reach Jerusalem’s main power station nearby. The IEC building and the compound have been evacuated. Ten firefighting teams are on the scene, as well as additional teams from Beit Shemesh and from Judea and Samaria, as well as firefighting planes.

The eastbound lanes Route 1, the main highway from Tel Aviv, have been blocked near Ginot Sakharov, and additional traffic routes: Akiva Azulay, Kanfey Nesharim, Menachem Chaftzadi and Maginey Yerushalaim have been blocked.

A spokesperson for the firefighting and rescue forces reported that the fire is moving quickly eastbound, driven by the winds. Firefighters have been trying to move between the fire and residential neighborhoods.

The weather forecast in Israel on Wednesday is calling for high temperatures, low humidity and strong winds, an ideal combination for fast-spreading forest fires across the country.

Sarona Victim Discharged from Hospital with Bullet Still in Head

Tuesday, June 14th, 2016

Five days after the attack on the Sarona center in Tel Aviv, where four Israeli civilians had been murdered, Assaf Bar, who was shot twice in the head while sitting inside the Max Brenner Café, very close to the table where the two well dressed terrorists were sitting, is going home.

“I was the first one to be hit,” Bar recalled on Monday. “Of the shots themselves I don’t remember a lot. I slid toward the table. I was hearing, and I remember flashes of consciousness, in which I talked a little with my girlfriend, a little with the man who took me to the ambulance, a little with my dad on the phone, on the way to the hospital,” he reported.

He said that now, “thank God, I feel better. I still have headaches now and then, some trouble hearing, but I hope to get stronger. I feel stronger with every passing day.”

Bar presented the two scars in the back of his head, each from a bullet shot by the terrorists. The doctors took out one of them and decided to leave the other inside for the time being.

Dr. Ido Straus, who was on call during the Sarona attack, told reporters the first bullet “was very accessible, the other less so, and it does not pose a danger for now. In the future we’ll decide what to do with it, he might stay with the bullet inside. He hemorrhaged, which could have caused his death in a short period of time, and stopping the flow of blood prevented a collapse.”

Indictment Filed Against Arab Who Stabbed IDF Soldier With Screwdriver

Tuesday, June 14th, 2016

By Jonathan Benedek/TPS

Tel Aviv (TPS) – The Tel Aviv branch of the State Attorney’s Office has filed an indictment against Omar Jandab, a resident of the Arab town of Salfit in the Binyamin region. Jandab has been charged with attempted murder and illegal residence in Israel after carrying out a stabbing attack against a soldier in Tel Aviv on May 30.

Jandab had been living within Green-line Israel without a permit from May 19 through May 30 while he worked at a construction site in Givatayim, a town east of Tel Aviv.

Jandab had informed his friends of his intentions to kill a soldier in the hopes of becoming a “shahid,” or religious martyr.

Jandab spotted a soldier at approximately 7:00 p.m. on the evening of May 30 and stabbed him at the top of his back and head with a 19-centimeter-long screwdriver, which caused the soldier to fall to the ground. The soldier was still able to fight Jandal and eventually rose to his feet. Jandab then attempted to stab the soldier again in the face, and the soldier successfully pushed Jandab away and fled the scene.

Several citizens pursued Jandab until he ran into a building. The police were then called to the scene, and Jandab was arrested.

Obama’s Ridiculous Reaction

Monday, June 13th, 2016

I really wanted to take a break from politics and talk about something else besides radical Islamic terrorism and how liberals are giving in to them, but the recent attack in Orlando and the ridiculous reactions by POTUS and liberal minds across the globe leave me no choice. The entire situation reminds me of “The Emperor’s New Clothes”

For those who are unfamiliar with the story, An Emperor hires two weavers who promise him the finest, best suit of clothes from a fabric invisible to anyone who is unfit for his position or “hopelessly stupid”. Finally the weavers report that the suit is finished, they mime dressing him and the Emperor marches in procession before his nation. The townsfolk play along with the pretense, not wanting to appear unfit for their positions or stupid. Then a child in the crowd, too young to understand the desirability of keeping up the pretense, blurts out that the Emperor is wearing nothing at all and the cry is taken up by others. The Emperor suspects the assertion is true, but continues the procession.”

A radical Islamic terrorist walks into a restaurant in Tel Aviv or a bar in Orlando and murders innocent people. The reaction is anger and then there is a cry not to define this as a radical Islamic terrorist attack. The Mayor of Tel Aviv blames Israel and POTUS won’t even mention the words Islamic terror because telling the truth is not as important as faking like he sees the emperors clothes.

The terrorist was interviewed by the FBI TWICE(!!) for radical Islamic activity but allowed to legally acquire a gun because to refuse his constitutional right to bear arms based on his radical Islamic views alone would be considered racist in the liberal mind . Careful about pointing out that this was an Islamic terrorist attack, they will make fun of you for not seeing the Emperor’s invisible clothes. It doesn’t matter the terrorist swore allegiance to ISIS (that’s ISLAMIC State for those who were wondering), or that he screamed Allah Akhbar before shooting up 50 people, the liberals are still applauding the Emperor’s new clothes and call this a gun problem! The emperor is walking around as naked as he was on the day he was born, but if you dare say so, you are called a racist and deemed unfit for the enlightened “libertard” culture that is running around protecting those who want you dead!

THE EMPEROR IS %^& NAKED!

I will happily be that little kid to let the emperor know he is stark naked and his not so flattering figure is putting us all in danger!

Islamic terror is hitting all over the world! The left in Israel that are advocating making deals with terrorists as well as the liberals in the US or Europe that refuse to admit there is a problem called Islamic terror are part of the problem!

This is about gun control? REALLY!

Perhaps after 9/11 we should have outlawed planes!

Who finally killed the terrorist in Orlando?

Who killed the terrorist in TA? I believe it was someone with a gun!

If the bar would not have been run by liberals who decided to make it a gun free zone, perhaps there would be much less than 50 innocent people murdered and the terrorist would have been sent to his paradise much earlier.

The Muslims I know have publicly bashed those who carried out these attacks, but where is the vocal majority? Where are the mass Muslim demonstrations in Orlando against terrorists who are using their religion to murder people? Where were the mass Israeli Arab demonstrations in Israel against the terror attack in TA?

After Orlando Bloodbath, Israeli Leaders ‘Stand Shoulder to Shoulder’ With US

Monday, June 13th, 2016

By Jonathan Benedek/TPS

Jerusalem (TPS) – Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein expressed his condolences to US Speaker of the United States House of Representatives Paul Ryan over the deadly shooting at a gay bar in Orlando, Florida on Saturday night.

“On behalf of all the members of the Israeli Knesset, I would like to express our condolences and to join in the great sorrow of the tragedy that befell you and the deaths of innocent people from this crime,” said Edelstein to his US counterpart Speaker Ryan.

“Terrorism strikes everywhere and it does not differentiate between Orlando to Tel Aviv,” Edelstein continued. Only a few days earlier, two Arab terrorists murdered 3 Israeli civilians in a shooting in Tel Aviv.

“To my great dismay, the Israeli public is very familiar with the feelings of grief and anger caused by these events, and all we can do is to join hands in the fight against global terrorism,” added Edelstein.

Prime Minister Netanyahu conveyed similar condolences to the US earlier today during his weekly cabinet meeting.

“On behalf of the government and people of Israel, I would like to again express our condolences to the American people and the families at this especially difficult hour,” said Netanyahu. “We stand shoulder to shoulder with the American people.”

Like Edelstein, Netanyahu had also called for unity against global terrorism.

“This terror threatens the entire world and it is necessary above all that the enlightened countries urgently unite to fight against it.”

President Rivlin shared his sympathies with US President Barack Obama on Sunday night, writing that “the Israeli people stand shoulder to shoulder with our American brothers and sisters in the moral and just fight against all forms of violence and hatred. On behalf of all of Israel, I send my condolences to the families of the victims, and prayers for a speedy recovery of the injured.”

Flames Enveloping Apartment Building in Ramat Gan

Monday, June 13th, 2016

A fire that started on the ninth floor of an apartment building in Ramat Gan on Monday afternoon appears to have moved rapidly on to other floors in the tower-like structure.

It is not yet clear what started the blaze.

Flames and smoke were pouring out of the 15-floor apartment building at 164 Bialik Street in the Tel Aviv suburb as just one firefighting unit was starting to set up its equipment to fight the blaze.

Numerous other firefighter units from the Dan region soon followed, as did Magen David Adom emergency medical response paramedic teams, Israel Police units and other first responders.

The unit that was first on the scene was from the Fire and rescue Services division in the Dan region, fire officials said, adding that the top 10 floors of the building have already been damaged.

In addition, a number of vehicles parked near the building have also been damaged due to falling embers and other materials from the structure as it distintegrates from the blaze.

Due to the high temperatures and dry, windy conditions in the region, the flames appeared to have quickly spread to other floors in the building as well.

Volunteer firefighters from the surrounding communities in Bnei Brak, Givatayim, Giva’at Shmuel, and Tel Aviv also joined the firefighting forces to battle a blaze that quickly appeared to be getting out of control.

No injuries have been reported.
