France: Policeman and Wife Murdered; ISIS Takes Credit

Tuesday, June 14th, 2016

A French policeman, Jean-Baptiste Salvaing, 42, was stabbed multiple times, and his wife and son were taken hostage in their home in Magnanville, 35 miles north-west of Paris, on Monday night.

The attacker, a neighbor, stabbed the policeman outside the man’s home. Witnesses say the attacker may have shouted “Allahu Ackbar”, according to an AFP report. The attacker then entered their home and took the wife and son hostage.

At some point, the attacker also killed the policeman’s wife. Their couple’s 3-year-old son was rescued alive by a French SWAT team who stormed the house around midnight.

Reports say the man claimed allegiance to ISIS.

The Isis-linked Amaq News Agency says ISIS has taken credit for the attack, “Islamic State fighter kills deputy chief of the police station in the city of Les Mureaux and his wife with blade weapons near Paris.”

The attacker was identified as Larossi Abballa (25), who already had an arrest conviction for terror, according to The Guardian.

He was sentenced to 3 years in prison, six months suspended in 2013 for helping to recruit jihadists linked to Pakistan and Afghanistan.

And had recently been under police surveillance.

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.”

Closure around Yatta Relaxed

Monday, June 13th, 2016

The Israeli political echelon has ordered a relaxation of the IDF closure around the Arab village of Yatta in southern Hebron, according to a Walla report.

Following the Sarona terror attack in Tel Aviv last week, the IDF set up an impermeable closure around the village where the two terrorists originated from. Yatta is known as a hotbed of Islamic terrorism. Last week the IDF demolished the home of Murad Idais in Yatta. Murad Idais murdered Daphna Meir (38) of Otniel in front of her children in a terror attack on January 17, 2016.

According to the new guidelines, residents of Yatta will be allowed to enter and leave following a security check, except for those residents between the ages of 15 and 25, who will not be allowed to exit the village.

Tel Aviv Shows Its Colors in Solidarity with Orlando

Monday, June 13th, 2016

The city of Tel Aviv made sure to show its colors as soon as possible in solidarity with the city of Orlando, Florida in the wake of the worst mass shooting ever recorded in American history.

The city lit up the municipal building to show its support.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and President Reuven Rivlin had already both issued statements extending condolences and support within minutes of learning about the attack.

In his tweet, Rivlin said, “To @POTUS: The attack against the LGBT community in #Orlando is cowardly & abhorrent. #Israel stands w/America in the fight against hatred.”

Netanyahu’s statement was a bit longer:

The attack on the Pulse Orlando night club just south of downtown in the city took the lives of 50 people and left another 53 wounded early Sunday morning.

Hundreds of others were deeply traumatized by the events. Dozens were held hostage by the 29-year-old gunman, an American-born citizen with parents who immigrated to the country from Afghanistan in the 1980s.

Omar Sadiqque Mateen swore allegiance to Islamic State and Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi in a phone call to 911 just prior to carrying out his deadly attack.

Why I Go Grocery Shopping with an M-16 on My Back.

Thursday, June 9th, 2016

[Reposted from Facebook]

Several days ago I engaged with Leftist activists at the Jerusalem Day Parade, including Sarah Tuttle Singer and a friend of hers that did not give her name. They claimed Muslims in the Damascus Gate marketplace were friends of theirs.

I challenged them to go in and ask the first Muslim they find why the Muslims built a mosque on top of the Jewish Temple Mount?

I also challenged them to go ask their “friends” in what year did an Arab Palestine country, state Or land exist before Israel – and I will be there to watch the reaction.

Sarah’s friend claimed that my gun proves that I am not looking for peace. You see, liberals live in a make believe world so far out of reality it resembles a Disney cartoon. Jews are being slaughtered in the streets by Muslim terrorists, we are unable to walk through the gates of Jerusalem throughout the year, Jews are being shot, run over and murdered and the gun that I wear for self-defense proves that I don’t want peace?! They really have to stop sniffing that peace drug! This morning I went shopping at Rami Levy.

There were Muslims who were in the middle of Ramadan shopping and Jews shopping for Shabbat and the upcoming Shavuot holiday and I was there with my M-16 strapped over my back as well as my secondary weapon on my hip.

Not only were the Jews not nervous about the fact that I’m walking around with two guns, the Muslims knew that if a terrorist walks into that store, I will be protecting them just like everyone else. The guns that I and many other people wear are not a situation we asked for, they are a reaction to the situation we were forced into.

We did not start the wars, we did not ask for the wars And the fact that the Arabs lost the wars they started does not turn them into victims, only into losers.

I understand the world has gotten used to Jews picking up their arms and walking like sheep to the slaughterhouse, but they better wake up and understand, we will do whatever is needed to make sure that never happens again! I will not apologize for my guns nor will I apologize for unwilling to cooperate with the radical Islamic terrorists who want us once again to become victims.

I’m sorry the liberals in Israel have been struck with a fatal case of the Stockholm Syndrome and I’m happy the disease is not airborne. The cure? TRUTH!

The only person who would be nervous about my guns are the terrorists who are looking to murder my people and to them I say, be nervous and be scared!

This is why I spend my days and nights with Standing Together 24/7 IDF supporting IDF soldiers with whatever they need.

We must never apologize for our ability to fight back and defend ourselves, just like we should never apologize for winning the wars the Arabs started in order to destroy us and we certainly should not apologize for dancing through the streets of Jerusalem.

If you feel guilty for our ability to fight back, do not get upset at the world if they criticize us for doing so.

You convinced them that a Jew with a gun is the problem and not the reason we are forced to go shopping with an M-16 on our backs.

Four people are dead and 4 more are in critical condition and are being treated at Ichilov Hospital on Wednesday night, in a “Ramadan” terror attack in the Sarona Food MArket, on Kaplan Street in the heart of Tel Aviv. There are additional wounded. The attack happened just before 9:30 PM

According to eyewitnesses, the two Arab terrorists were sitting inside a restaurant dressed in their Ramadan finest clothing. They ordered food and then they stood up. They began shooting their Carl Gustav submachine guns at the other restaurant guests. One of them, after he emptied his gun, threw it down and the two started running.

Both terrorists have been neutralized. One was captured alive but seriously wounded and is undergoing surgery at Ichilov Hospital. The second one is now undergoing interrogation.

Police sappers are dealing with suspected bombs in the area.

Police issued a statement that the situation is under control, as both terrorists have been neutralized.

Arab sources initially claimed the terrorists are from the village of Dura in the Har Hebron region.

The two terrorists are cousins and are from the village of Yatta in the Hebron area, which is near Dura.

Hamas terror chief Ismail Haniyeh praised the attack on his Twitter feed.
