Netanyahu Praises His Off-Duty Security Guard for Shooting Terrorist

Wednesday, December 3rd, 2014

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu praised one of his security guards who thwarted the terrorist attack on Wednesday at the industrial area of Maaleh Adumim.

“On the way here I spoke to the security guard who thwarted a deadly terrorist attack in Mishor Adumim,” he said. “I know him; he is a security guard at the Prime Minister’s Office.

“He acted with extraordinary level-headedness, resourcefulness and bravery. I told him that we are all proud of him. I told him that even when he isn’t at work – he’s at work, and this is our work, to fight terrorism with the same determination, persistence and decisiveness.”

Burka-Clad Terrorist Kills American Teacher in Abu Dhabi Mall [video]

Wednesday, December 3rd, 2014

A terrorist clad in a burqa from head to toe, totally hiding any identification, stabbed to death an American teacher in the rest room of an Aby Dhabi mall Tuesday,

The murder weapon was a sharp tool.

The 37-year-old woman teacher’s name has not yet been released for publication. Her 11-year-old twins are under police custody until the victim’s ex-husband arrives from abroad.

The murderer, disguised as a religious Muslim, or perhaps it is the other way around, was caught on a security film calmly entering a mall elevator and later leaving the building amid commotion following the attack

“The Abu Dhabi Police will spare no effort in order to unveil this heinous crime and bring the culprit to justice,” said Col. Rashid Borshid, head of the criminal investigation department.

The murder illustrates that not even the United Arab Emirates, a close ally of the United States considered one of the tamest countries in the Middle East, is free of terrorists.

Rabbi Yehuda Glick Pleads to Return to Temple Mount

Sunday, November 30th, 2014

On Sunday the Jerusalem District Court held a hearing into the question of whether to continue a restraining order issued by the court against Temple Mount activist Rabbi Yehuda Glick.

The matter was raised by Glick in response to the restraining order, which Glick contended prevented him from earning a living.

The restraining order had been issued after a complaint was filed by an Arab woman who claimed that Glick had pushed her on the Temple Mount.

Because Glick was unable to physically appear in court due to ill health — this, following an assassination attempt last month by an Arab terrorist who pumped four bullets into his chest at point-blank range — Glick instead sent a detailed letter to the Court in which he listed his claims.

Here are some key points of the letter, before you read the whole thing:

With regard to the case in question, the plaintiff wishes to accuse me of assault. She first claimed that the event occurred on 2 September 2014, but after I proved that I was not at the Temple Mount that afternoon, the respondent changed the story and stated the event occurred on 31 August 2014.

As a religious Jew coming to the Temple Mount, I am always accompanied by police, who stand right beside me. It should be noted that two police officers and one commanding officer that were from the area warned the plaintiff that they did not see the events for which she filed the complaint.

It is inconceivable that I would push a woman, let alone knock her to the ground, without all of the police officers in the area having seen such an event.

All of my tours on the Temple Mount are conducted with participants and Arab elements in place, and watched by police through fixed and mobile video security cameras. I was fully apparent and visible at the scene from four different angles. Anyone can see that I am the victim here — yet instead of reacting in self-defense, I turn and ask police in the area to distance the rioters.

The courts are expected to decide either this Thursday, or Tuesday next week whether or not to extend or cancel the restraining order.

Here is Yehuda Glick’s letter (translated):


“I really wanted to participate in the discussion of my appeal against the decision to bar me from the Temple Mount,” wrote Glick. “But as is well known, an attempt was made on my life on October 29, 2014 by a Muslim extremist (from this alone one easily learns who is the attacker, and who is the attacked, with regard to those who choose to go up to the Temple Mount.)

“After ten days in which I was sedated and on a respirator, and an additional week in which I remained in intensive care, plus an another week in the Department of Surgery, just a few days ago I was released for the purpose of extensive rehabilitative services. Despite that, I requested permission to participate in these court proceedings; however, this past Shabbat I became severely weakened and thus cannot appear physically in the court room.

Therefore, I respectfully request the court herewith accept this letter in lieu of my appearance and verbal testimony:

For 25 years, since 1989, I have guided groups in to the Temple Mount. To this day, I teach hundreds of groups, including thousands of participants, including Jews and non-Jews, secular and observant alike.

In recent years, this activity has become the means for my livelihood, and I guide groups sometimes three to four times a day.

With regard to the case in question, the plaintiff wishes to accuse me of assault. She first claimed that the event occurred on 2 September 2014, but after I proved that I was not at the Temple Mount that afternoon, the respondent changed the story and stated the event occurred on 31 August 2014.

It should be noted that the plaintiff does not claim, God forbid, that I attack on a regular basis, but rather claims it to be a single event.

It should be noted that since the so-called “incident” I have gone up to the Temple Mount eight times, and at no point has any such event occurred. (all during September 2014) Thus it is clearly proven there is no danger to the public at the Temple Mount vis a vis any event relating to my self.

As a religious Jew coming to the Temple Mount, I am always accompanied by police, who stand right beside me. It should be noted that two police officers and one commanding officer that were from the area warned the plaintiff that they did not see the events for which she filed the complaint.

ISIS Claims Israeli-Canadian Woman Captured

Sunday, November 30th, 2014

The Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) terror organization is claiming to have captured a female Israeli-Canadian dual citizen who went to fight with the Kurds.

Dual citizen Gila Rosenberg, reportedly captured by the terrorist group, joined up with Iraqi Kurds a few weeks ago to fight against ISIS in Syria.

Last week she wrote on Facebook that she would no longer be updating her page because she was heading to an area without Internet reception.

Rosenberg had posted photos of Tel Aviv and the Old City of Jerusalem, snapped prior to leaving for the Kurdish areas of Iraq and Syria. “My last day in Israel seems like way more than a week ago,” she wrote.

And the caption of another: “YPG uniform pics coming soon! Once the tailor finishes my customized uniform.”

The Syrian jihadi websites associated with ISIS reported Sunday that Rosenberg, 31, was kidnapped by the terrorist group.

A site believed to be a mouthpiece for ISIS also claimed that several other female Kurdish fighters were captured along with Rosenberg. The site reported that ISIS guerrillas carried out three suicide attacks prior to the women’s abduction.

The Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) has said it has no details about Rosenberg’s fate.

Kurdish rebel fighters told a reporter for Israel public radio, meanwhile, that Rosenberg had not been seen in the northern Syrian Kurdish city of Kobani. The fighter added it was doubtful she was captured, and more likely the report was ISIS propaganda.

PA Sniper Gunman Shoots at Jewish Driver on Highway 60 near Hebron

Friday, November 28th, 2014

A Palestinian Authority gunman shot bullet holes in the door of the car of a Jewish motorist on Highway 60 near Hebron Thursday, but the driver, Israel Zaeera, escaped injury.

“A tremendous miracle happened here,” he said.

It was the second attempt by Arab terrorists to shoot and kill Jews in two days. As reported here yesterday, an Arab gunman took potshots at Jewish drivers in Samaria, and bullet shells were found in the area. No one was injured.

In both cases, the attackers fled.

The shootings represent a serious escalation in the motivation of “lone wolves” to kill Jews. The IDF is beefing up patrols, but soldiers cannot be on every mile of highways in Judea and Samaria.

Friday morning, a 17-year-old Arab girl was caught with a knife that she was planning to use to stab a security guard at the Patriarchs’ Cave in Hebron.

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.
