IDF Gears Up to Protect Jews in Judea, Samaria

Tuesday, November 11th, 2014

The IDF has beefed up its security forces in Judea and Samaria.

Patrols are being tightened along the roads in the region. Forces training in other areas of the country, such as the Golan Heights, have been redeployed further south as well.

Although military sources said the moves do not indicate any change in the region’s security status, nevertheless IDF Central Command is clearly taking no more chances.

Defense leaders gathered at security meeting convened by Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu Monday night.

Among other decisions, Netanyahu ordered security personnel to demolish the homes of convicted Arab terrorists, as a deterrent measure.

Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon, Public Defense Minister Yitzhak Aharonovitch, IDF Chief-of-Staff Lt.-Gen. Benny Gantz, Shin Bet Director Yoram Cohen, Israel Police Commissioner Insp.-Gen. Yohanan Danino and Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein were all in attendance at the meeting.

The gathering convened in the wake of terror attacks in Tel Aviv and Gush Etzion just a few hours earlier that left two young Israelis dead and a number of other Israelis wounded.

One of the two victims, 26-year-old Dalia Lamkus of Tekoa, was laid to rest this morning (Tuesday, Nov. 11) at the cemetery in her community. She had survived a stabbing during prior terror attack in 2006.

The second victim, IDF Staff Sergeant Almog Shilony, age 20, is to be laid to rest this afternoon in a private ceremony at the military cemetery at Mount Herzl. His family has requested the media refrain from coverage.

Arab Violence Against Police Follows Jerusalem Terror Attack

Wednesday, November 5th, 2014

Six masked Arab men hurled rocks at a police car near a construction site close to the Jewish community of Beitar Illit late Wednesday afternoon.

The attack followed a vicious spate of terror in Jerusalem and a horrifying terror attack in the northern part of the capital earlier in the day.

No one was physically injured in the attack near Beitar Illit, although the police vehicle was damaged. IDF troops were called to the site and immediately began searching for the attackers.

Around mid-afternoon, Arabs in northern Jerusalem’s Shuafat neighborhood hurled firebombs (Molotov cocktails) and shot fireworks at Border Patrol officers.

In a separate incident, two Arabs sprayed tear gas at Jerusalem police officers. No one was injured in either attack.

One arrest was made.

New PA Foreign Policy: Renew Iranian Ties to Threaten Israel

Saturday, February 8th, 2014

During a visit to Iran last week, Jibril Rajoub called for a return to armed resistance against Israel if Kerry’s peace talks fail, according to a report in Makor Rishon.

Armed Resistance is a euphemism for suicide bombers and other terror attacks, and Rajoub is one of the Palestinian Authority’s strongmen, as well as the current deputy chief of the Fatah (PLO) Central Committee.

During his visit, Rajoub met with the Iranian foreign minister Mohamad Juar Zarif.

The meeting signifies an end to the freeze between the Palestinian Authority and Iran that went on for many years.

On an “Al Alam” Iranian TV interview, Rajoub said that if the talks failed, “returning to armed resistance would be a good strategy for the Palestinians.” While the PA ambassador to Iran made sure to mention that the talks have reached a dead end.

No one from the Palestinian Authority denounced Rajoub’s pronouncements of renewed terror attacks, while Hamas responded and said the statement was a welcome positive change, and Islamic Jihad said they hoped [Palestinian Authority Prime Minister] Abu Mazen would visit Iran soon.

Abu Mazen released an official statement that, “It’s understood how important the renewal of ties with Iran are for the Palestinian nation.”

Israel has expressed concern that if a “Palestinian State” were to be created, they would immediately sign treaties with Israel’s enemies, such as Iran, and bring Iran onto the Israeli border.

It doesn’t look like they’re waiting for a state to do that.

GSS: Terrorism Doubled in Israel from August to September

Sunday, October 6th, 2013

The number of terror attacks and attempted terror attacks roughly doubled in Israel over the last month, rising from 68 in August to 133 in September, new data from the Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) revealed Thursday.

Two notable instances of Palestinian terrorism were the murders of Israeli soldiers Staff Sgt. Gal (Gabriel) Kobi, 20, on Sept. 19, and Sgt. Tomer Hazan, 20, on Sept. 21. The Shin Bet noted that 104 terror attacks in September took place in Judea and Samaria, compared with 68 terror attacks in those communities in August.

Muslim Acts of Beheading in the West

Sunday, May 26th, 2013

The gruesome murder of a soldier outside London by a Muslim convert, Michael Adebolajo, brings to mind that throat slitting and beheading are Islamically sanctioned forms of execution. Although these occur particularly often in the course of family-related crimes – think, for example, of the case of Aasiya Hassan in suburban Buffalo, N.Y., killed by her husband in 2009, stabbed with two hunting knives more than forty times in the face, back and chest, then beheaded – this monstrous form of violence is also used in non-family instances. Some of those that took place over the past decade in the West in chronological order include:

In addition, Ibragim Todashev, who was shot and killed yesterday while being interviewed about the Waltham murders, reportedly grabbed a knife and stabbed an officer several times, including in the head, possibly an attempt on his neck. In any case, it was so threatening that the officers used deadly force and on the spot killed Todashev.

This list (to be updated as needed) is only part of the story: other characteristically Muslim crimes taking place in Western countries include honor killingsfemale genital mutilation, and slave holding. These, sadly, are among Islam’s contributions to the lands of immigration.

Postscript: What this analysis does not cover: (1) Daniel Pearl, Nick Berg, and other Westerners murdered in Pakistan, Iraq, and other non-Western places. (2) Meir Kahane, Hitoshi Igarashi, and other prominent individuals assassinated in the West but not beheaded; Theo van Gogh is the only person listed both here and at “Islamist Assassinations in the West.” (May 23, 2013)
