Hit and Run in the Shomron, Possible Terror Attack

Monday, December 1st, 2014

A 60 year old Jewish man was hit by a car in a hit and run on Monday afternoon near Migdalim (Tzomet Alon) in the Shomron. The victim was evacuated from the scene by helicopter to Beilinson hospital with a serious head injury. He is currently on a respirator.

Police suspect it may have been a run-over terror attack.

Israel Law Center Wins Landmark Decision Against PA in NY Court

Friday, November 21st, 2014

Shurat HaDin – the Israel Law Center – on Thursday (Nov. 20) won a landmark decision against the Palestinian Authority (PA) on behalf of 11 families of victims of terror. The U.S. District Court in New York set a date for a jury trial in January for the case that began in 2004.

The Israeli civil rights advocacy group is representing the families in a lawsuit that holds the PA and Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) responsible for the deaths of their loved ones due to seven terror attacks between 2001 and 2004, during the period of the second intifada.

“For years the PA provided funding and every measure of support for the murderous terrorist operations in Israel that devastated the country and left so many civilians dead,” said Shurat HaDin head Attorney Nitzana Darshan-Leitner.

“The decision and trial will provide an unprecedented opportunity to present to a New York jury all that the evidence that has been amassed documenting the Palestinians’ use of terrorism as an official policy to advance their goals,” she added.

At issue is the question of whether the PA and PLO are “vicariously liable” for the deaths of the American citizens killed in the seven terror attacks.

Thursday’s decision found there was sufficient evidence to prove that PA employees were involved in carrying out terror attacks against civilians in Israel and that the PA and PLO provided weapons, money and other material support to the operatives, in violation of U.S. Anti-Terror laws.

Moreover, there is sufficient evidence to provide the possibility that a jury could also rule the PA and PLO guilty of providing “safe haven” to the terrorists, and material support to Fatah’s military wing, the Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades and Gaza’s ruling Hamas terrorist organization.

Recently Shurat HaDin won a ruling against the Arab Bank in which the bank was found guilty of providing material support to Hamas in funding terrorist attacks. The bank has appealed the case.

The trial set for January is a landmark case whose costs in terms of damages awarded by the court to the plaintiffs could reach up to $1 billion.

 

 

Bicyclist Attacked Near Jerusalem’s Old City

Wednesday, November 19th, 2014

A 20-year-old man told police he was attacked by Arabs Tuesday night as he rode his bicycle near the New Gate of the Old City of Jerusalem.

The man was listed in fair to good condition at Hadassah Ein Kerem Medical Center after he was struck with a lead pipe.

Israel Police and Border Patrol officers have arrested two 19-year-old Arab males in connection with the attack. Both were held for further questioning.

The arrests were made after searches were conducted using footage from security cameras.

Why Hacking Jews to Death During Prayers Has NOTHING to Do with “Occupation”

Tuesday, November 18th, 2014

This morning two Muslim terrorists entered a Synagogue/Yeshiva (school for religious study) and while Jews were praying they hacked 5 Jews to death with axes and knives.

One of the knives used to murder innocent Jews

The Muslim terrorists were not from the West Bank or from Gaza, they were not unemployed and were not lacking any rights. The Muslim terrorists who walked into a place of worship this morning and slaughtered Jews, lived in Jerusalem and worked in a supermarket that is next door to the synagogue.

The Jews these Muslim terrorists murdered were not in IDF uniform and were not living in a settlement. In fact, the Jews these Muslim terrorists slaughtered like animals don’t draft to the IDF at all and are against ascending the Temple Mount to pray and do not live in a settlement!

The Ultra Orthodox population are exempt from IDF service so that they can spend their days studying Torah and this is who the two barbaric Muslim terrorists murdered this morning in a peaceful neighborhood in Jerusalem.

Hamas has called this morning’s terrorist attack a “Heroic act” and Abu Mazen, Israel’s peace partner, said nothing! CNN almost reported the attack but left the story as a supposed “Terror Attack”

Unfortunately, official news channels like CNN have chosen to support Islamic terror under the facade of an underdog. This is exactly the fuel radical Muslims use to sink their claws into the United States of America, England, France and the rest of the free world. My grandfather used to say, “When you’re too open-minded, your brains fall out!”

It is time the leaders in Israel and the world realize this has nothing to do with settlements or the Temple Mount or a fake claim of occupation and everything to do with radical Islamic barbarism!

May God avenge the blood of those who were murdered and give our leaders the courage to fight Islamic terror and the brains NOT to make any more deals with them!

Sign the petition–> I SUPPORT ISRAEL’S RIGHT TO DEFEND ITSELF!

The pictures of the Jews who were murdered still their prayer shawls is very harsh. I personally believe they should be published but in order not to offend anyone I am not adding them to the blog. If you want the pictures they can be found HERE.

Netanyahu Convenes Top Brass in Jerusalem Over Terror Attack

Thursday, October 23rd, 2014

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu convened top officials from Israel’s security establishment and the city of Jerusalem Thursday over the terror attack that killed three-month-old Chaya Zissel Braun less than a day earlier, as well as to discuss ongoing terror in the city.

Public Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovitch, Israel Police Commissioner Insp.-Gen. Yohanan Danino, ISA Director Yoram Cohen, Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat and Jerusalem District Police Commander Moshe Edri were all included in the meeting, held at Israel Police headquarters in Jerusalem.

Prime Minister Netanyahu was briefed on the attack and on the ongoing disturbances that have been taking place in Jerusalem on a near-daily basis in recent months. Despite the constant attacks by Arab terrorists, Public Security Minister Yitzchak Aharonovitch continues to insist the violence does not constitute a “third intifada.”

Netanyahu ordered that “sovereignty be asserted in all parts of the city” via the stationing of additional forces throughout the city, according to a statement released by his office.

“Jerusalem is not the only city under attack by terrorists; other cities across the world are, as well. But the offensive in Jerusalem is supported by the chairman of the Palestinian Authority, Abu Mazen, who glorifies the murderers and embraces the group they belong to – Hamas,” Netanyahu said late Wednesday night after the attack, referring to the terrorist name of PA unity government chairman Mahmoud Abbas.

Netanyahu also met Thursday with the Jerusalem District police officer who shot the terrorist and asked to send his condolences to the family of three-month-old Chaya Zissel Braun who was murdered in the attack.

“On behalf of the entire nation, I send condolences to the family of this pure baby and my wishes for a quick and full recovery to those who were wounded,” the prime minister said.

Convicted Terrorists Still Have Drivers’ Licenses, But . . .

Thursday, October 23rd, 2014

A terrorist who has murdered Jews with a bulldozer, for instance, can still be holding his driver’s license and be able to get right back into the cab of a vehicle when he gets out of prison. Yes.

But if the Legal Forum for Israel has its way, this situation may not continue much longer.

The organization has appealed to Transportation and Road Safety Minister Yisrael Katz to revoke the drivers’ licenses of those who are convicted of terror activities.

Forum attorney Yossi Fuchs wrote to Katz that Abdul Rahman al-Shaloudi, the terrorist who murdered a three month old baby in a terror attack in Jerusalem Wednesday night and wounded numerous others, was a recidivist.

He called on Katz to submit an amendment to the current motor vehicle law, blocking convicting terrorists from holding a valid driver’s license once released from prison.

Shaloudi had been convicted of terrorism before, and had been released from prison just 10 months prior to carrying out his deadly attack.

“The prison term was no real warning to him, and he instead decided to use his drivers’ license as a license to murder Jews, as was seen in last night’s attack,” Fuchs wrote.

The attorney proposed an amendment that would require revocation of a driver’s license for a period of one year or more – until the terrorist finishes serving his or her sentence – and until such time as the Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) deems the driver no longer a security risk.

The revocation should be made in cases of terror activities that include rock attacks, not necessarily related to the use of a motor vehicle, Fuchs said.

The terrorist who prompted the proposed amendment is dead. He died of his wounds in the hospital after being shot by a police officer while trying to flee the scene of his motor vehicle attack on a crowd of bystanders waiting for the Jerusalem Light Rail.

His victim, tiny American citizen Chaya Zisel Braun, was laid to rest late the same night in Jerusalem’s ancient soil.
