Terrorist Who Murdered Two Israelis in Tel Aviv Indicted

Sunday, December 13th, 2015

Written by Michael Bachner for TPS

An indictment was filed on Sunday against Raed Khalil bin-Mahmoud for murdering two Israelis in a deadly terror attack last month in the Panorama building in Tel Aviv.

Reuven Aviram, 51, and Aharon Yisayev, 32, were stabbed to death in the November 19 attack, and another Israeli man was wounded.

The indictment charged Mahmoud, a 36-year-old father of five from the Palestinian Authority town of Dura between Hebron and Be’er Sheva, with two accounts of murder and three accounts of attempted murder.

According to the indictment, he had an entrance permit to Israel “for personal needs.” which was valid for 30 days beginning on November 15, when he entered Israel and stayed at the Panorama building in Tel Aviv, where his brother resides.

Four days later, Mahmoud decided to murder Jews in the hope of dying in the process and being hailed by Palestinians as a “Shahid” (martyr), the indictment reads.

He took a knife from the kitchen of a restaurant on the building’s ground floor and then ascended to the second floor where he repeatedly stabbed and murdered Reuven Aviram and Aharon Yisayev, who were in the middle of afternoon prayer in a synagogue.

The terrorist then proceeded to try to murder other civilians. Mahmoud attempted to enter shops on the second floor but was prevented from doing so when the doors were held shut from the inside. He entered a shoe storeroom on the first floor and stabbed a worker in his upper body.

At this point, according to the indictment, an Israeli civilian who followed Khalil from the second floor entered the storeroom holding a metal pole. He hit the accused with the pole, trying to prevent him from continuing his stabbing spree.

Other workers joined the effort, and together they managed to take control of the terrorist and save the stabbed worker’s life, along with the lives of other potential victims.

Ban Ki-Moon Condemns Terror around the World – Except in Israel [video]

Monday, November 30th, 2015

The Paris climate conference opened on Sunday with a moment of silence for the world’s recent victims and a solemn recital of cities where radical Islamists have murdered people, with the blatant omission of Tel Aviv and Jerusalem.

Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, who draws a line connecting global warming and terrorism, ticked off the names of cities, including:

Paris; Tunis; Beirut, and Bamako, Mali. notably

And what about Jerusalem and Tel Aviv?

Apparently Jews murdered there are not terror victims, according to Ban. He and other Western leaders have tried to manufacture a link between the “occupation” and the Arab “resistance” movement that encourages the murder of Jews.

Or, the world is so used to them that it not worth mentioning, except in the London Daily Mail. The British tabloid not only headlined violence in Jerusalem, but also let readers think that the Arabs are the victims

Honest Reporting noted that the newspaper’s headline appeared as:

The conference in Paris is ostensibly over the climate, but Western leaders are running over each other for headlines to show their concern over the Paris massacres by Islamic State (ISIS) terrorists. President Barack Obama and Canadian Prime Justin Trudeau hurried over to the Bataclan Theatre to pay their tribute to victims of the Islamic State (ISIS) massacre there two weeks ago.

The conference will likely conclude with pontifical agreements on “global warming” without much follow through, but an agreement on an international effort to fight radical Islam is not in the cards.

In fact, Ban Ki-moon is afraid that the war against terror will “overshadow” the war against “global warming.”

Ban Ki-moon has adopted the line that one way to fight terror is to keep the temperature from rising one degree, because, so the theory goes, droughts cause famine and that is what causes Muslims to murder people in Paris and Jerusalem.

In his words, in an interview with Canada’s CBC:

When we do not address climate change properly it may also affect many people who are frustrated and who are impacted, then there is some possibility that these young people who [are] jobless and frustrated may join these foreign terrorist fighters.

There is a concern whether it may overshadow the climate change agreement and I think we have to move on this climate change agreement.

Israeli Start-Up Finds Parking Places for Drivers

Monday, November 30th, 2015

Israelis, who brought WAZE to the world,  have come with another invention that will make the Boycott Israel movement even more obsolete.

“Spaceek” had developed a system that has run a pilot test in Kfar Saba, located on the northern edge of metropolitan Tel Aviv, and uses sensors and an app for drivers to head to an empty spot.

Empty parking places in the Tel Aviv area, just like in New York City, are a prize for frustrated motorists driving around in circles until they can find a place to park.

The Spaceek system places a network of sensors on parking places. Drivers use an app to “see” which ones are available and then can navigate to it.

If another driver beats someone else to the punch, an app will let him know, a system that might prevent fights from breaking out when someone arrives 30 seconds too late to what he thought was an empty parking place.

Globes reported that Spaceek has attracted $272,000 in crowd funding. The money will be used to expand business in urban center, and Spaceek hopes to deploy its system overseas.

Mother of Terrorist who Stabbed 2 to Death ‘Proud of Her Son’

Friday, November 20th, 2015

Jewish mothers like to wish that their sons will be a doctor, lawyer or businessman.

In the Palestinian Authority, a mother is proud that her son is a terrorist.

She told Hamas TV that her 36-year-old don’s deadly stabbing of two Jews while they were praying in a Tel Aviv synagogue was a “source of pride for Hebron and Palestine.”

The attacker, Raid Halil bin Mahmoud, 36, had a special permit to legally work outside of Judea and Samaria to have carried out a terrorist attack.  Israeli authorities said he had no criminal record.

His acts of murders were rationalized as a reaction to his “pain” for other Arabs.

Mahmud lives in Dura, a Hamas-infested city in the southern Hebron Hills, between Hebron and Be’er Sheva.

His clean record and his mother’s response are clear indications of how deep the Hamas ideology and Palestinian Authority incitement has seeped into the hearts and minds of the Arab population.

Condé Nast Designates Tel Aviv Home of Best Vegetarian Food

Thursday, November 19th, 2015

(JNi.media) Condé Nast Traveler, which is part of a network of 20 print and digital media brands reaching more than 164 million consumers, focuses on literary journalism and hard news reporting. This month, it declared that Israel’s trend-setting city Tel Aviv has become a Mecca for herbivores. The magazine extols the city’s Carmel Market, with its “gleaming pyramids of eggplants, peppers, and cabbage heaped like pinups.” It is astonished by all the gastronomic influences: Russian, Polish, Arabic, Moroccan, Bulgarian, Iraqi, which “can coax a world of flavors out of the most humble potato.” And best of all, for the religious Jewish traveler, Tel Aviv’s abundance of no-meat, no-dairy restaurants are “kosher by default,” if you trust the owner, of course.

The article divides the eateries into outright Vegan and “veggie friendly.” Vegan food, in addition to being vegetarian, does not contain animal products and by-products such as eggs, dairy products or honey. The list of top notch, Tel Aviv Vegan joints is impressive (served here with choice lines from each):

Café Anastasia: tofu crepes, macadamia or chickpea omelets, and veggie scrambles.

Caffe Kaymak: fundamental bean soup is a medley of nutty al dente beans sitting in a sweet tomato broth roused by black pepper.

Nanuchka: hand-made dumplings, include a pastry pocket stuffed with potato, paired with eggplant salsa, as well as a pirashki filled with seasonal mushrooms.

Tenat (Ethiopian): crepe-like Injera bread, which you can wrap around the accompanying lentils, root vegetables, beetroot leaves, and potato salad.

Bindella: open ravioli piled with green-pea puree, mushrooms, and green-vegetable ragu.

Chiripom: Tip the party hat and out roll croquettes made of fried onion, parsley, and white potatoes.

Dallal: A forest-mushroom-and-mascarpone tortellini with hazelnut and truffled goat cheese makes for a rich starter.

Incidentally, Carmel Market, Shuk HaCarmel in Hebrew, is a vast, open air marketplace in old Tel Aviv, bordered by Allenby Street and Magen David Square. The market is open every day of the week, except Shabbat, and sells mostly food but also home accessories and flowers. Tuesdays and Fridays are the days when independent artists and vendors sell unique crafts, art, and jewelry nearby, along Nahalat Binyamin Street.
