Damascus Gate Stabber Was Convicted Killer From Hebron

Thursday, August 27th, 2015

Hebron resident Muammar Ata Mahmoud, 56, should not have been in Jerusalem Wednesday night.

Had he obeyed the conditions of his release from prison in 2013, he would not have been able to stab a Border Guard Police officer at the Damascus Gate in the Old City of Jerusalem.

Mahmoud, a Palestinian Authority Arab resident of Hebron had no permit to enter pre-1967 Israel.

He and Salah Khalil Ahmad Ibrahim were both convicted of murdering Professor Menachem Stern, age 64, an Israel Prize-winning historian. They also murdered Palestinian Arab Hassin Zaid, a suspected collaborator with Israel.

They were freed in 2013 as part of the caravan of “good will gestures” to Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas aimed at keeping him in peace talks that ultimately led nowhere.

Stern was an internationally-acclaimed historian on the Second Temple period. When his murderers were freed, his daughter Meira Stern-Glick protested, saying “A person who murdered in cold blood should sit for life.” As with all other family members who have seen the murderers of their loved ones freed in the cause of “peace with the Palestinian Authority,” her protest was ignored.

Stern was stabbed to death on June 22, 1989 while walking to the Jewish National and University Library at Hebrew University in Givat Ram. The murder took place against the backdrop of the first intifada, led by the Palestine Liberation Organization from 1987 to 1993. It began with false charges of Israeli “atrocities” and incessant instigation from the mosques.

In one week, an Israeli was stabbed, a traffic accident in which four Arabs were killed was transformed by lightning rumors into a “deliberate” provocation, there was mass rioting by Palestinian Arabs and a teen rioter was killed by an Israeli soldier when he hurled a firebomb at an army patrol.

In the four years of the violence, the IDF reported more than 3,600 firebombing attacks, 100 hand grenade attacks and 600 shootings and bombings by Palestinian Arabs. Within that time, 16 Israeli civilians and 11 soldiers were killed; more than 1,400 civilians and 1,700 soldiers were wounded. Approximately 1,100 Palestinian Arabs were killed in clashes with IDF soldiers.

By that criteria, Israel is now well into its third intifada. How many injured and dead will it take before Israel takes steps to end this one?

Netanyahu Warns World Leaders, ‘Stand Against Terrorism in Israel’

Tuesday, June 30th, 2015

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu called on the international community to also take a stand against terror when it occurs in Israel.

The prime minister made some pointed remarks prior to the start of his meeting with Italian Foreign Minister Paolo Gentilloni on Tuesday (June 30), commenting on two attacks the previous day that left five people seriously wounded – one in critical condition.

“I would like to send my best wishes for a rapid and full recovery to the Israeli citizens who were wounded last night in the terrorist attack near Shilo and to the soldier who was stabbed near Rachel’s Tomb,” he said.

“Attempts to attack us do not halt even for a moment. The ISA and IDF have foiled dozens of terrorist attacks since the start of the year and over 200 since the start of 2014.

“We are determined to take strong action and deal with the terrorists to the fullest extent of the law.

“The fact that up until now, the Palestinian Authority has not condemned these attacks needs to bother not only us, but also the international community as a whole,” he said pointedly.

Within minutes after a car bombing in Cairo on Monday night, the White House issued a statement condemning the terror attack that killed Egypt’s attorney general, Hisham Barakat, and nine other people.

Earlier in the day, A female Israeli soldier was stabbed by a Palestinian Authority terrorist at a checkpoint near Rachel’s Tomb and nearly died. She was rushed to a Jerusalem hospital where she remained unconscious until this morning. Late Monday night, four young Israeli men were shot in a driveby road terror attack on Highway 60 near Shvut Rachel, in the Binyamin district of Samaria east of Shilo — about 45 kilometers (28 miles) north of Jerusalem.

“Those who do not take an unequivocal stand against terrorism cannot wash their hands,” Netanyahu said.

Father of Terror Victim Issues Public Plea: ‘Pray For My Son’

Tuesday, June 30th, 2015

The father of one of the four young men who were shot in a drive-by road terror attack late Monday night near Shvut Rachel in the Binyamin region has asked the public to pray for his son.

The father of Malachi Moshe Rosenfeld, who is listed in critical condition, has asked those who are willing to pray for his son “with a full heart.”

He told reporters Monday night at the hospital, “We are aware that your prayers have power. Please pray for my son with a full heart, so the Holy One, Blessed Be He, will save him and send him a complete recovery. We are confident that He will send him the strength to fight and that the doctors will perform as they should. We trust them; they are great angels, like our son. Thank you and thank all of Am Yisrael.”

The family has already lost the boy’s older brother, who once was an air force pilot. He died in 2002 during a hike in Nachal Tzeilim.

For prayers, the names of the victims follow:

  • Malachi ben Sarah (critical condition)
  • Chananya ben Sarah
  • Shai ben Nili
  • Yair ben Shoshana

Two of the men, ages 34 and 26, are at Hadassah Ein Kerem Medical Center. Both are stabilized and are in fair condition with moderate wounds. The other two are at Shaare Zedek Medical Center (earlier reports they were transported to Sheba Medical Center were erroneous), including Malachi Moshe Rosenfeld, who remains in critical condition. All four are residents of Kochav HaShachar, another Jewish community in the Binyamin region of Samaria.

The men were on their way home from the community of Eli, traveling northbound on the Alon Road, when Palestinian Authority Arabs opened fire at their vehicle, peppering it with bullets.

In a separate incident, the female soldier who was stabbed Monday by a Palestinian Authority terrorist at the Rachel’s Tomb checkpoint has awakened, is breathing independently and is able to communicate with her family and the hospital staff, medical officials told media Tuesday morning.
