PA Terrorist Who Bombed Tel Aviv Bus Sentenced to 25 Years

Monday, March 10th, 2014

The Palestinian Authority terrorist convicted last year of bombing a bus in Tel Aviv in 2012 was sentenced on Monday to 25 years in jail. The explosion on the local bus wounded 28 people.

The terrorist, Mohammed Mafarji and who was 18 years old when he bombed the bus, said he carried out the attack during the Pillar of Defense counter terrorist operation in Gaza as an act of revenge for the death of a Hamas terrorist commander.

The sentence was handed down after plea bargaining, which included a promise that the jail sentence would not be no more than 25 years.

Assuming Israel does not free him sooner as a “goodwill concession” to Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas or U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, and if Mafarji behaves nicely in jail, he probably will be released long before 25 years pass.

IDF Tries to Pre-Empt Anti-Israel Amnesty Report

Wednesday, February 26th, 2014

The IDF preceded an upcoming anti-Israel Amnesty report Wednesday night and charged that “Amnesty International wholly ignores the substantial increase in Palestinian violence initiated over the past year, and shows a complete lack of understanding as to operational challenges the IDF is posed with.”

Amnesty routinely picks part the IDF for alleged violations, such as shooting at terrorists and warning suspects to stop or be shot.

Military spokesmen noted that in 2013, there were more than 5,000 reported rock-throwing attacks, a sharp increase from the year before. More than 130 Israelis were injured, some of them seriously. One baby girl still is hospitalized and remains unconscious as a result of a rock-throwing incident in Samaria.

There also were 66 other terrorist attacks in 2013, including shootings, the planting of explosive devices, blunt weapon attacks and the abduction and murder of a soldier.

 

 

 

Muslim Clerics Finally Forbid Suicide Missions but Only on Mars

Thursday, February 20th, 2014

Islamic law forbids a one-way trip to Mars, a “fatwa” Muslim religious committee has ruled in the UAE (United Arab Emirates), the Khaleej Times reported Wednesday.

“Such a one-way journey poses a real risk to life, and that can never be justified in Islam,” the committee said. “There is a possibility that an individual who travels to planet Mars may not be able to remain alive there, and is more vulnerable to death.”

The fatwa committee is under the jurisdiction of the General Authority of Islamic Affairs and Endowment in the UAE. Even worse than dying after a move to the red planet, the Muslim would meet his Maker for no “righteous reason” and therefore would be subject to “punishment similar to that of suicide in the Hereafter,” the committee warned.

Committee chairman Professor Dr. Farooq Hamada was quoted by the newspaper as saying, “Protecting life against all possible dangers and keeping it safe is an issue agreed upon by all religions and is clearly stipulated in verse 4/29 of the Holy Quran: Do not kill yourselves or one another. Indeed, Allah is to you ever Merciful.”

Really?

Does that mean that the Quran forbids Muslims to be suicide bombers? After all, the professor did say that the Muslim holy book says one should not kill himself.

I am not an expert in the Quran. In fact, I never have opened the book. But it seems to me that lots of holy Muslims say that suicide missions are not only not forbidden but also are a mitzvah, pardon the expression. There probably is a large footnote somewhere in the Quran that advises that suicide missions are forbidden – unless they blow up Jews.

But let’s get back to an expert such as Prof. Hamada.

His fatwa was in response to a plan by a Dutch company called Mars One to invite volunteers to fly and live on Mars while taking into account it would be a one-way ticket since there is no technology on the market for bringing them back to Earth.

Thousands of volunteers have signed up to pay $38 for the journey, including 500 Saudis and other Arabs, the Khaleej newspaper stated.

The professor declared, “This is an absolutely baseless and unacceptable belief because not even an atom falls outside the purview of Allah, the Creator of everything. This has also been clearly underscored in verse 19&20/93 of the Holy Quran in which Allah says, “There is no one in the heavens and earth but that he comes to the Most Merciful as a servant. (Indeed) He has enumerated them and counted them a (full) counting.”

Islamic researcher Dr. Shaikh Mohammed Al Ashmawy added to the religious discourse on the verse and concluded that “Almighty Allah said in verse 2/195 in the Holy Quran: Do not throw yourselves with your own hands into destruction.”

Sheikh Mohammed Yusuf, Imam of the Amena mosque, said: “Man’s life is not his or her own property; it is God’s creation, and therefore suicide is prohibited in all religions, and of course by law.”

Where were these guys when Palestinian Authority terrorists were blowing up, and still are trying to blow up Jews, and Hezbollah terrorists were blowing up and still are blowing up Sunni Muslims?

Where were these leading religious figures on Sept. 10, 2011, or even the day after 9/11?

And if Mahmoud Abbas really wants to control terror, why doesn’t he ask Prof. Hamada to make an exception and allow suicide bombers to take a one-way trip to Mars.

I am more than willing to put up the 38 bucks.

Massive Arab Rock Attacks Damage Cars near Modi’in

Wednesday, February 19th, 2014

Arab rock-throwing terrorists attacked dozens of cars in  western Samaria Wednesday  evening, causing widespread damage but no injuries.

The attackers fled the area when soldiers arrived at the scene on the road to Hashmonim, located between Jerusalem and Tel Aviv and near the city of Modi’in.

Soldiers so far have not nabbed the attackers.

Gaza Firm Offers Private Bodyguards

Monday, February 17th, 2014

Gaza’s first personal security business has opened up, but its owner says terrorists will not be accepted as customers.

“Secure Land” director Abdul Qader al-Arbid told the Chinese news agency Xinhua that clients will; include banks, hotels, celebrities and banks but not terrorists looking for protection from rival gangs.

“We only work with the private sector,” Arbid said. “This is how security companies work across the world.”

The company’s bodyguards’ first assignment last week was to protect Mohammed Assaf, the winner of the Arab Idol singing competition. Hamas has allowed the company’s 32 security officers to use light weapons, when necessary,

Secure Land also will not provide bodyguards for international aid organizations, meaning that UNRWA, which has increasingly been confronted by Hamas, will have to find its own solution to keep its workers alive.

“We have no problems to have such companies here. We are ready to support and help them in their job,” said Islam Shawan, spokesman for the Interior Ministry of Hamas.

PA Allocates $46 Million More for Terrorists

Thursday, February 13th, 2014

The Palestinian Authority announced last week it will be giving an additional $46 million a year to released prisoners, including hundreds of murderers of civilians, according to the Palestinian Media Watch (PMW). This new funding is an addition to the tens of millions the PA already gives in salaries and other benefits to terrorists in prison and released terrorists.

The PA’s funding of terrorists is enabled to a large extent by money the United States and European countries give to the PA for salaries and its general budget.

PA Minister of Prisoners’ Affairs Issa Karake explained that the Palestinian Authority was not able to fund this financial support for released prisoners in 2013 because of its “large budget deficit,” so it will only start in 2014.

“Due to the large budget deficit and the PA’s financial situation, establishing the budget, which has been estimated at 160 million shekels a year, has been postponed until April [2014],” he was quoted as saying in a report by Al-Hayat Al-Jadida.

Most Western countries have laws and regulations prohibiting support for terrorists or former terrorists. The United States, Britain, UK, Holland, Norway, Sweden and others have debated, proposed or passed laws or motions against giving the Palestinian Authority money that ends up in the hands of terrorists, but these countries nevertheless continue to fund the PA’s general budget, thereby paying tens of millions of dollars to terrorists as salaries and other payments.

The PA responded to Western criticism of support for terrorists by mocking European donors for wanting their money to remain “clean.” In the words of the same PA Minister who announced the $46 million for released prisoners on official PA TV, ”The Europeans want their money that comes to us to remain clean – not to go to families of those they claim to be ‘terrorists.’ [They] need to renounce this occupation (Israeli) mentality. These [prisoners] are heroes, self-sacrificing fighters (fedayyeen), and fighters who fought so that we could live in dignity… These heroes, whom you [the audience] are applauding, must live in dignity, so that we will continue to hold our heads high. We appreciate the people of the revolution and are proud of them.”

Four Jerusalem Arabs Indicted for Plot for Wedding Massacre

Wednesday, February 5th, 2014

Four Jerusalem Arabs plotted to carry out a grisly massacre at a wedding hall near Shaarei Tzedek Hospital and Har Herzl in the capital, according to indictments filed in a Jerusalem court Wednesday, lifting a gag order that had been in effect.

All four Arabs, between 18 and 21 years old, are from the Jabal Muchabar neighborhood, adjacent to the Jewish neighborhood of Armon HaNatziv that is next to Talpiot on the southern edge of Jerusalem.

The terrorists planned to wear Haredi clothes to crash a wedding at the Nof wedding hall in the Bayit Vegan neighborhood, located well within the old boundaries of the capital before the Six-Day War in 1967. They were to be armed with an Uzi sub-machine gun, with which they would the spray at anyone in sight and carry out one of the bloodiest massacres since the Netanya Park Hotel slaughter on Passover in 2002.

The Arabs lived in a neighborhood that was restored to Israel during the war and officially annexed to Jerusalem in 1980.

The indictments stated that Anas Ouisat and Basel Abidat planned last December to work with terrorist organizations to kill Jews.

Ouisat previously worked at the wedding hall and knew that an attack there could kill and wound several hundred wedding guests. Ahmed Sarur carried out surveillance for the planned attack but eventually left the gang and Amru Abado took his place.

All four are between 18 and 21 years old.

Here’s How Hamas Digs Terror Tunnels and Builds Rockets (Video)

Monday, February 3rd, 2014

Hamas continues to dig underground, building dozens of tunnels used to attack and kidnap Israelis while manufacturing powerful weapons, producing missiles that can reach major Israeli cities such as Tel Aviv and Jerusalem.

The terrorist authority has trained civilians to become experts in building underground tunnel, IDF spokesmen stated on the military’s blog website.“Hamas’ military wing devotes about 20 percent of its budget to building these tunnels inside Gaza, many of which lead under the border into Israel.

IDF soldiers last October discovered the opening of a 60-foot deep and mile-long tunnel built by Gaza terrorists near the Israeli community of Ein HaShlosha.

“There’s one Gaza above ground, and another one underground,” said a senior officer in the IDF Intelligence Corps. “Tunneling has existed [in Gaza] since the mid 1990s, but it has really grown into an industry. More funds are invested in it – we’re talking about millions of dollars every year – and the need for engineers are growing.

“Our estimate is that there are tens of tunnels from Gaza into Israel, only half of which we know about. Hamas pays professionals to train special military units that have one simple purpose: to dig and tunnel underground.”

Since the end of Operation Pillar of Defense, in November 2012, Hamas has been busy rebuilding its arsenal. Because importing weapons has become more difficult for Hamas, the terrorist organization has begun manufacturing rockets inside Gaza, and Hamas is producing the M-75, which can reach as far as Tel Aviv and Jerusalem.

“They focus on rockets of higher quality,” explained the officer. “During Operation Pillar of Defense, only five M-75 rockets were fired, but we expect more in a future conflict.” The rocket is only one part of Hamas’ expanding arsenal. Today there are more than 10,000 rockets, mortar shells and ammunition in the hands of the Gaza terrorists.
