Jewish Man Repeatedly Stabbed by Female Arab in Milan

Friday, November 13th, 2015

A 40-year-old Chabad Hasid, identified as Natan Graf, was stabbed between three to nine times in the head by a terrorist, while walking on the street in a Jewish neighborhood of Milan, Italy.

The injured Jewish man is currently in the hospital and is listed in light to moderate condition.

He was attacked outside of Carmel Pizza, a kosher pizzeria on via San Gimignano, which is right next to a Jewish school, Scuola Comunita Israelitica.

The terrorist stabber is a female Arab who attempted to flee the attack site but was captured.

Shortly after the attack there was a bomb scare outside the re Salomone kosher restaurant on via Sardinia, but it turned out to have been based on a false rumor.

The stabbing victim’s name is Natan ben Chana Sara, and prayers for his recovery are encouraged.

He lives in Milan and holds Israeli citizenship.

‘Human Rights’ Groups Cry over IDF Arrest of Terrorist in Hospital [video]

Thursday, November 12th, 2015

Israeli security forces arrested a Hamas terrorist in a Hebron hospital early Thursday and killed his cousin who attacked them during the undercover operation.

The terrorist, 22-year-old Azzam Shaldallah, stabbed Yisrael ben Aharon in the eastern Gush Etzion community of Metzad on October 25.

Ben Aharon had stopped his car after it was hit by rocks. Shaldallah then stabbed him, but Aharon fought the terrorist and managed to shoot and wound him.

Israeli soldiers and the Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) dressed in civilians clothes and infiltrated the hospital where Shaldallah was being treated and had found refuge.

Palestinian media said the security forces pretended they were bringing in a pregnant woman and then rushed to Shaldallah’s room, pulled out weapons and arrested him. The terrorist’s cousin violently interfered and was shot and killed.

Terrorists recently have evaded arrest by Israeli forces by turning themselves over to Palestinian Authority authorities, who protect them from arrest instead of handing them over to Israel.

Palestinian Authority Government Invests in Hebron

Wednesday, November 4th, 2015

The government of the Palestinian Authority held its cabinet meeting this week in the Arab terrorist stronghold of Hebron, and announced a decision to allocate funds to a special support program for Arabs living there.

Some $7 million is being allocation for 20 projects to be carried out in health, education and community infrastructure, according to a report published by Arab affairs journalist Khaled Abu Toameh in the Jerusalem Post.

Hebron has been a major locus of terrorism against Israel, particularly for the Gaza-based Hamas terrorist organization. The group has been active in Hebron for years; not only in promoting the current wave of terror but also in masterminding and carrying out the savage June 2014 kidnapping and murders of three Jewish teenagers that ultimately ignited Operation Protective Edge — Israel’s counter-terrorism war against Hamas in Gaza.

As part of the new PA investment in Hebron, more than 1,000 Arab families living in the Jewish side of Hebron will receive monthly stipends of $100 each. Residents of the Old City of Hebron will be treated to special support, according to the report, including financial aid to merchants and a salary hike for those who work for the Palestinian Authority.

Diplomatic visits to the city are also slated to increase, and foreign diplomats will receive regular updates on political developments in Hebron as well, particularly strife with Israel.

Jerusalem City Hall Tells Mosques to Turn Loudspeakers Down and Around

Tuesday, November 3rd, 2015

In the still of the night, Jerusalemites hear the sonorous Arabic call to prayers.

And another. And it keeps going on and on, until the night — and day — is filled with the blare of the Arabic wails, at least in Jewish neighborhoods situated cheek-and-jowl with Muslim neighbors. In the past, the loudspeakers weren’t so loud.

But the long-simmering battle over the loudspeakers of the mosques is heating up in the holy city and now is approaching the boiling point.

Imams in the Arab neighborhoods of Jabel Mukabar and Sur Baher were asked to direct speakers in their mosques pointed towards the center of their own neighborhoods, which have become strongholds for terrorist cells and lone wolf Arab attackers.

In addition, neighborhood representatives were told to obtain new speakers with adjustable volume; this coming after the broadcast level was measured at or near the allowable limit.

Police have also begun to track the sermons of imams in neighborhood mosques to monitor the clerics for incitement to violence.

“This is a disgrace, and an attempt to damage the values of the religion,” claimed Jabel Mukabar activist, Mehdi Akram.

The demand to order the mosques to change the direction of their speakers and for the vehicles to obtain those with adjustable volumes followed complaints from the residents of the Armon HaNatziv neighborhood.

The residents of the Jewish neighborhood hear the wail of Islam’s call to prayer at all hours of the day and night, since Muslims are called to prayer around the clock, five times a day. The residents of the Jewish neighborhood say the Muslim loudspeakers have been wailing particularly loudly ever since the start of the current wave of terror.

Environmental Protection Department personnel sent to measure the noise level at the mosques under an initial pilot test told the Hebrew-language Ynet news site they found abnormal intensities in the neighborhood. The noise level in the Armon HaNatziv neighborhood is “absolutely unbearable” when all three mosques begin to call for prayer from Jabel Mukabar at four o’clock in the morning, Ynet reported.

Residents of the Arnona neighborhood made similar complaints about the five mosques operating in Sur Baher.

Several months ago, Jerusalem city hall approved a comprehensive program for testing the noise levels from 200 mosques in Arab neighborhoods in the city. The cost of the pilot, which tested mosques in Jabel Mukaber and Sur Baher, was approximately NIS 200,000.
