Hit-and-Run Palestinian Authority Terrorist Arrested

Tuesday, June 16th, 2015

Cleared for release: The IDF, Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) and Israeli Police arrested Palestinian Authority Mohammed Yosuf Arfaya. for running over pedestrians at the Alon Shvut junction last month.

Three people were injured, and Arfaya escaped. He later was caught and initially claimed it was accident. Under questioning, he admitted to intentionally targeting Israeli civilians.

Arfaya also confessed to have previously attempted executing several terror attacks, all of them unsuccessful. An indictment will be submitted to the military court in Judea and Samaria charging him with the terrorist attack at Alon Shvut.

The terror attack that Arfaya executed is an example of “lone wolf” attacks. There have been many similar attacks over recent months, in which a singular attacker was involved and claimed credit.

In the upcoming days, an indictment will be submitted to the military court in Judea and Samaria incriminating Arfaya for the terror attack.

Three Jerusalem Arabs Jailed for 8 Years for Planning Attack on Wedding Hall

Tuesday, June 16th, 2015

Three Jerusalem Arabs will be spending 7 to 8 years in jail for planning to disguise themselves as Hareidi Jews to enter a wedding hall and carry out a mass murder.

The Jerusalem District Court sentenced two of the men to eight years in prison, and a third terrorist who had last-minute thoughts and dropped out from the plot received a term of seven years.

All three were between 19 and 21 years old when arrested and are from the Jabel Mukaber neighborhood, adjacent to Talpiot..

The plan had reached an advance stage, when they had found a Palestinian Authority arms dealer to sell them an Uzi sub-machine gun for $12,000 and had staked out the wedding hall in the Bayit Began neighborhood.

US Air Raid Targets Key Al Qaeda Terrorist in Libya

Monday, June 15th, 2015

U.S. military forces have eliminated a major Al Qaeda terrorist leader in Libya, according to Libyan officials in the eastern town of Beyda who spoke with media on Monday.

The radical Islamist, Mokhtar Belmokhtar, is an Algerian who led a deadly attack on an Algerian gas drilling site and had been dubbed by the French military as “uncatchable.”

Belmokhtar was targeted in a U.S. strike Saturday night on a farmhouse in a city near Benghazi that also killed seven members of the Ansar al Shari’a terrorist organization who were meeting at the site.

Pentagon spokesperson Col. Steve Warren told media in a briefing on Monday that military officials are continuing to assess the results of the operation in order to obtain confirmation of the kill.

Abbas Accuses Netanyahu of Imitating Goebbels’ Propaganda Tactics

Thursday, June 11th, 2015

Mahmoud Abbas has outdone himself for slander and disgust by charging that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu “uses the propaganda tactics of Goebbels to convince the world that the Palestinian Authority is the reason for the freeze in the diplomatic process.”

The Palestinian Authority chairman lashed out at Netanyahu and compared him with the Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels in comments he made on Palestinian Authority deletion. He said:

Netanyahu acts like Goebbels and lies, lies and lies…. There is no chance of any results of talks with this right-wing government.”

Abbas was responding to the Prime Minister’s speech this week at the annual Herzliya Conference, where he said:

I have been trying to speak with Mahmoud Abbas for six and a half years…. I froze construction for nearly a year, ten months. In the tenth month, he agreed to come. We met for three hours in Sharm el-Sheikh and three hours on Balfour Street in Jerusalem. He had one demand – another freeze….Six hours.

So I again call on President Abbas to return to negotiations without preconditions. But I also know he has very little reason to talk. Why should he talk? He can get by without talking. He can get by with an international community that blames Israel for not having talks. In other words, the Palestinians run from the table…from Prime Minister Barak…from Olmert… from, before that, from Sharon. And they ran away from me. When John Kerry proposed a framework for negotiations, the framework for a disagreement, for God’s sake, they ran away from that too….

Abbas did not try to counter the facts as told by Netanyahu.

Instead, he continued to disgrace himself for the foreign media who are finding it difficult to maintain their support for the “peace process.’

Goebbels?

It bears repeating that the Palestinian Authority talks about “two states” while using a map of the one state of “Palestine,” in place of all of Israel, in schools, television programs and official meetings.

It bears repeating that the Palestinian Authority says it is combating terror while it praises and honors terrorists whom it calls “martyrs.”

It bears repeating that the Abbas accuses Israel of “apartheid” and has repeatedly said that no Jew will be allowed to live under Palestinian Authority rule.

It bears repeating that Palestinian Authority has emasculated the Oslo Accords that call for negotiations with Israel on “final borders.”

IDF Kills Palestinian Authority Terrorist Who Wanted to ‘Meet Allah’

Wednesday, June 10th, 2015

Israeli soldiers killed a Palestinian Authority terrorist who was attacking them with an explosive device early Wednesday morning.

Border Police had finished arresting suspected terrorists when they spotted Ezzedine Ghora, 23, preparing to hurl the improvised bomb at them. It was not clear if the terrorist died from IDF fire or from the explosive device, which blew up.

His last Facebook message was:

One loves (willing) to meet Allah, Allah loves meeting him.

Jenin is in “Area A,” where the Palestinian Authority is supposed to be responsible for tearing down the terrorist infrastructure.

Foreign media, such as Reuters reported Wednesday morning’s incident with the usual claim, this time by “hospital officials,” that there had been no confrontation, just like Gaza Arabs trying to attack the IDF at the security fence actually were playing soccer.

Senate Passes Bill for Limited NSA Surveillance

Wednesday, June 3rd, 2015

The Senate voted 62-37 Tuesday night to pass a House bill that resumes clauses in the Patriot Ac t that expired Sunday night and left the NSA without power to collect phone data of suspected terrorists.

The bill revises the Patriot Act and ends the freedom of the NSA to collect data on everyone, even if not suspected of terror.

The new bill calls for phone companies to collect and forces the NSA to receive court permission to access records.

President Barack Obama signed the bill into law after tweeting:

Glad the Senate finally passed the USA Freedom Act. It protects civil liberties and our national security. I’ll sign it as soon as I get it.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who failed to block the passage of the bill, said, This is a step in the wrong direction. [It[ does not enhance the privacy protections of American citizens. And it surely undermines American security by taking one more tool from our warfighters at exactly the wrong time.”

House speaker John House Speaker John Boehner responded, “This legislation is critical to keeping Americans safe from terrorism and protecting their civil liberties. I applaud the Senate for renewing our nation’s foreign intelligence capabilities.”

Patriot Act Expires but Probably Will be Re-Enacted

Monday, June 1st, 2015

The Senate allowed the Patriot Act, designed to help the government combat terrorism, act at midnight Sunday, but it is preparing a revised bill for the “Freedom Act” that likely will be passed.

The House of Representatives already has approved the Freedom  Act, parts of which are opposed by civil rights champions.

Until the Senate acts on its revised bill that would deal with three controversial clauses, the National Security Agency no longer is allowed to collect phone data on suspected terrorists.

Opponents of the bill point out that the NSA also can snoop on millions of American who have no ties with terror.
