IDF on Manhunt for Arab Terrorists Trying to Gun Down Jewish Drivers

Thursday, November 27th, 2014

Police and the IDF are conducting a massive manhunt Thursday for one or more Palestinian Authority Arabs who tried to gun down Jewish drivers in Samaria Thursday evening.

No one was injured in the attempted murders, but bullet shells were found in the area of the Doar Junction in the Binyamin region.

Despite the use of live fire, rocks still remain a popular way to terrorize drivers in the hopes of causing a fatal accident, as happened in the past. One of the favorite rock-throwing spots continues to be the village of Azoon, on the road between Kfar Saba and the communities of Ginot-Karnei Shomron and Kedumim in Samaria. Several rocks damaged passing cars on Thursday, but no injuries were reported.

The IDF frequently beefs up patrols around Azoon but usually only after attacks.

In Hebron soldier stopped an Arab driver near the Jewish community in the city and found a sub-machine gun and ammunition. The man is being questioned by security officials.

 

Hamas Gunfire Damages IDF Patrol Vehicle

Thursday, November 27th, 2014

The IDF responded with an artillery shell aimed at the source of fire.

Exposed Hamas Terrorist Cell a ’Drop in the Bucket’

Thursday, November 27th, 2014

The capture of a Hamas terrorist network with tentacles in Turkey, Jordan and Syria is only one of several counter-terrorist maneuvers that still remain secret, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said Thursday.

Speaking at the ceremony to rededicate David Ben-Gurion’s hut at Sde Boker in the Negev, the Prime Minister commended the Shin Bet and IDF “for foiling very dangerous terrorist actions that could have claimed many victims in our country.”

He noted that although the gag order on the two-month-old arrests was lifted, “there are many actions that remain secret, counter-terrorist actions against Hamas, which challenges the existence of the Jewish nation-state and, in effect, challenges the existence of Jews in general.”

“We are operating day and night in order to maintain the security of Israel’s citizens; the people who do this are deserving of all praise and support,” he added.

The terrorist network planned to target Jews outside the country as well in Israel.

Hamas Planned Massive Attack at Teddy Soccer Stadium in Jerusalem

Thursday, November 27th, 2014

The Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) revealed Thursday it has exposed a huge terrorist network that was aided by terrorists and commanders operating from Jordan, Syria and Turkey as well as within Judea and Samaria.

One of their targets was Jerusalem’s Teddy stadium, home of the Betar soccer team.

They also were planned to use a car bomb and had drawn up plans for a mass casually attack on the Jerusalem light rail system, coordinated roadside bombs and shooting attacks with M-16 semi-automatic rifles, and infiltrations, murders and kidnappings in Jewish communities throughout Judea and Samaria.

The gag order on the arrests of more than 30 terrorists two months ago was lifted today. A large quantity of weapons and ammunition also were found.

At least two of those arrested are Jordanians who previously were soldiers for the kingdom, drafted by Hamas in 2010 and sent to Turkey and Gaza for training, entering the Hamas territory through smuggling tunnels from Egypt.

The command post from Turkey further shows how Hamas has been provided a deadly safe haven by Turkey’s Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

The cells had carried out two explosions in Samaria last August, but no one was injured. The terrorists set off the bombs using a timer so that the explosions would occur when security forces were on the scene. One of the bombs went off at the Rehalim junction.

The explosions were carried out under instructions from Hamas commanders in Gaza, Jordan, Syria and Turkey. Investigations by the IDF and Shin Bet helped them track down the extensive terrorist network.

Among those arrested were two from Jordan, Manaf Mohammed Angvera, 28; and Abdallah Mahmoud Zitawi, 25, Jordan;

Kuwait native Mahmoud Airbajie, 25, who learned in Jordan; two Arabs from Tulkarem, east of Netanya, Rjyie Ahmed Amuri, 30; Adnan Samara, 30; Mutzav Ruwib, 23, from Bethlehem; and Tzuhiv Rabat, 29, from the Jordan Valley.

Ferguson Fuels Unrest in America But Israel is Blamed

Wednesday, November 26th, 2014

Rioters and “protesters” were out in force again in Ferguson, Missouri Tuesday for a second night, rocking at least one police vehicle, hurling rocks and bottles.

They were “demonstrating” against a grand jury decision not to indict police officer Darren Wilson after he shot and killed 18-year-old Michael Brown.

In Seattle, Washington, members of the ‘Palestine Solidarity Committee’ made sure to take advantage of the situation, marching down a main street as well. The demonstrators carried a banner that read, “Occupation is a crime, Ferguson to Palestine, Resist U.S. Racism, Boycott Israel, Stand Up!”

One blogger wrote that he was rendered speechless by the spectacle. “Upset with the verdict in Missouri? Then boycotting Israel makes perfect sense,” The Mike Report said. The blogger added the same group had been associated this summer with protests in downtown Seattle that featured swastikas and comparisons of Israel to Nazi Germany.

Wilson told the grand jury the black teenager attacked him Aug. 9 after the police officer tried to stop him following a robbery he apparently had carried out. He was still clutching the stolen goods — a fistful of cigarillos — in his hand when the officer stopped him, Wilson said.

“Darren Wilson got to tell his story. Michael Brown won’t get to tell his,” black activist Rev. Al Sharpton said grimly to journalists at an afternoon news conference slamming Wilson’s account. Black customers at a local barber shop had similar comments.

The grand jury’s meticulous questioning of 60 witnesses — nearly all of whom were black — over a period of 100 days — was dismissed. The evidence gathered by three separate forensic pathologists — each conducting their own autopsy review — including one retained privately by the Brown family, likewise was ignored. Apparently the account told to a grand jury by Michael Brown’s own body did not rate against the words of Darren Wilson.

As Sharpton, Brown’s parents and their attorney spoke with media, protesters gathered to renew their activities in the evening hours. “Jail Killer Cops” read one poster in garish red and black.

In towns and cities across America, in fact, the “protests” and outright riots continued. A Ferguson police car was overturned and smashed. More stores were looted and destroyed.

In New York City’s Times Square, downtown Brooklyn and in other areas protesters again gathered to demonstrate and block traffic.

“Whose streets? Our streets!” the protesters yelled. Mobs of marchers blocked the Lincoln Tunnel leading from the city to New Jersey, and the West Side Highway.

One of the organizers of the protest told a reporter they intended to “shut down the city.” Marching up the main arteries, hundreds of demonstrators headed for Harlem.

Among those behind the unrest in New York, at least, was Al Sharpton, whose “credentials” in agitation go all the way back to August 19, 1991, when black mobs swelled in the Crown Heights section of Brooklyn in a three-day pogrom against the neighborhood’s Jewish residents. Sharpton was among those who egged on the mobs, chanting at the microphone, “No Justice, No Peace.” It became a mantra — one that was resurrected this week in Ferguson, Missouri.

But today Sharpton is an older and wiser man, presenting a more sophisticated appearance and more circumspect in his words. It was his “National Action Network” that held a “Hands Up! Rally for Justice” demonstration in front of the Brooklyn federal courthouse on Tuesday afternoon. It is also unclear how many other demonstrations around the country received assistance with organization or guidance from Sharpton’s staff.

Kirsten Foy was named by media as the Brooklyn representative of Al Sharpton’s National Action Network, for instance. He told television cameras in New York the grand jury’s decision meant the lives of “people of color” clearly are not valued as much as those of others. “If you’re a man of color in this country … your life does not have as much value as anyone else,” he said.

Thousands at Memorial for Jerusalem’s Har Nof Massacre Victims

Wednesday, November 26th, 2014

Thousands attended a memorial service held Tuesday night to mark the end of the “Shiva,” the initial seven-day mourning period for five men slain by terrorists in the Jerusalem Har Nof Massacre.

Community rabbis and families of the fallen participated in the service attended by people from all over the country.

In Judaism, the immediate family continues mourning for a 30-day period and children of the fallen are bound to observe certain ritual restrictions for an entire year.

Four of the victims were rabbis; three were dual American-Israeli citizens and one was a British-Israeli national.

The fifth was a Druze Israeli police officer who gave his life for fellow citizens by deliberately drawing the attention of the terrorists to prevent them from continuing their slaughter. His partner shot and killed the terrorists.

Pro-ISIS Group Says ‘Use Ferguson Flames to Fuel Terror in America’

Tuesday, November 25th, 2014

A group linked to the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) terror organization is calling for lone wolf attackers to use the Ferguson riots in America as cover for their activities.

Al Nusra al-Maqdisiyya, a group of pro-ISIS activists who operate across social media on the Internet, tweeted on its Twitter account:

O lone mujahid, you must use the breakdown of security in #Ferguson to increase the burning in America. They are squabbling over worldly [matters], so you send them to hell! #ISIS.

A grand jury in the Missouri town decided Tuesday there was not enough evidence to indict police officer Darren Wilson in connection with the shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown. The black teenager was killed after he robbed a store and then physically attacked the police officer while he was in his vehicle.

The story of those events was told by 60 different witnesses — nearly all of whom were black as well — and three forensic pathologists who performed separate autopsies on Brown’s body, including one private pathologist retained by Brown’s family. It was heard by a grand jury comprised of nine white and three black jurors over a period of 100 days, who concluded the evidence overwhelmingly exonerated the police officer on all five charges of possible homicide brought before the panel by prosecuting attorney Robert McCullough.

But it wasn’t enough, and within minutes of announcing the decision of the jurors and despite appeals for calm by Brown’s family and even President Barack Obama who spoke on national television from the White House, Ferguson went up in flames, and protesters in numerous other major cities in America began to take to the streets in solidarity.

Rioters in Ferguson look suspiciously like those in the streets of Judea, Samaria and Jerusalem to this journalist who has covered violence in the Middle East. Many covered their faces with scarves and ski masks so their features could not be identified in media photos, and attackers were hurling rocks, bottles, firebombs (Molotov cocktails) and shooting fireworks at police. Some also fired actual guns — more than one hundred shots were fired, in fact.

But no police officer fired a gun, officials and media reported, although tear gas and smoke was used in an initial attempt to clear an area near the Ferguson police and fire department headquarters. Not that this stopped rioters from attacking others and doing their best to destroy their community, some of them practically dancing in glee during the process.

A gang that came upon a Fox News camera crew filming looting at a group of stores in Ferguson instantly beat up the camera man and smashed his camera on the spot as the film was rolling and while the shocked correspondent was voicing his report. The scene suddenly went black and the network switched to a second location, but not before the anchor team tried repeatedly to re-establish contact — unsuccessfully — with the news team that clearly had just been attacked. Footage of the looting was later replayed on Fox News network’s The Kelly File and then posted on the Internet, where it quickly went viral. The correspondent resumed reporting — clearly shaken and somewhat hoarse — within minutes, off-camera and using his cellphone camera to cover the violence. He told the anchor team that his cameraman was “okay” but revealed little else.

Two police cars were incinerated and a dozen buildings were torched in Ferguson, burnt completely to ashes. One police officer was shot and wounded; his condition and identity is unknown, probably in order to ensure his future safety.

According to the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), Al Nusra al-Maqdisiyya also tweeted:

O supporters of the Islamic State in America, what is happening in #Ferguson is a valuable opportunity that will not return. Rise up and engage them with themselves, away from the mujahideen. Spill their blood in the roads and in the neighborhoods.

The group is telling ISIS supporters to distribute ISIS videos — especially in the English language — on trending Twitter hashtags related to events taking place in Ferguson, Missouri.
