Mother of Terrorist who Stabbed 2 to Death ‘Proud of Her Son’

Friday, November 20th, 2015

Jewish mothers like to wish that their sons will be a doctor, lawyer or businessman.

In the Palestinian Authority, a mother is proud that her son is a terrorist.

She told Hamas TV that her 36-year-old don’s deadly stabbing of two Jews while they were praying in a Tel Aviv synagogue was a “source of pride for Hebron and Palestine.”

The attacker, Raid Halil bin Mahmoud, 36, had a special permit to legally work outside of Judea and Samaria to have carried out a terrorist attack.  Israeli authorities said he had no criminal record.

His acts of murders were rationalized as a reaction to his “pain” for other Arabs.

Mahmud lives in Dura, a Hamas-infested city in the southern Hebron Hills, between Hebron and Be’er Sheva.

His clean record and his mother’s response are clear indications of how deep the Hamas ideology and Palestinian Authority incitement has seeped into the hearts and minds of the Arab population.

Paris Massacres Boost Interest in Israeli Security Systems

Thursday, November 19th, 2015

The Islamic State (ISIS) massacres in Paris have boosted interest in this week’s Millipol 2015 exhibition of security solutions and systems in the French capital.

Israel is represented by 57 companies, 24 of which are showing their wares in the national pavilion for interest from police and military forces around the world, but dozens of delegations have canceled their visits, according to Israel Defense’s Amir Rapaport.

He quoted Ramzi Gabay, Chairman of the Israel Export Institute, as saying:

In the beginning of the preparations for the exhibition… we have seen an increase in the demand to meet with companies that have border protection technology. Against the background of recent events, this year we expect an increased interest on behalf of European countries in the products and services presented in the Israeli pavilion.

Israeli security systems are one industry the European Union would not dare boycott.

Israel’s constant war against enemies has made it one of the leaders in security systems.

Several of the Made in Israel items on display at the exhibition, Rapaport wrote, include an innovative pouch for grenades, which shortens the time to extract the grenade, thus changing the rules of the game and possibly saving the lives of soldiers and police special units.

The Netline company is displaying communication disruption technology that enables detection and neutralization of unmanned aerial vehicles.

Rafael is presenting technology solutions for border protection, including command and control, observation and electro-optical systems along with radars for detection of vehicles and suspicious individuals.

Lior Textile is displaying wearable armor for combat forces.

Sen. Schumer: Condoning Terror against Israel Led to Paris Massacres

Tuesday, November 17th, 2015

The world is paying a heavy price for years of condoning terror attacks against Israel, New York Democratic Senator Chuck Schumer told National Committee for Furtherance of Jewish Education.

He directly blamed last Friday’s Islamic State (ISIS) massacres in Paris on years of malign neglect as terrorists mowed down Israelis one by one and 10 by 10, with the numbers now in the thousands and going up.

Here are some of his comments, reported by the Jewish Insider:

Israel and the Jewish people have been subject to the same type of terrorism since the 70s. And for so long, when it just happened to Israel, the world condoned it.

They [may have not] condoned it, but maybe didn’t do much about it, and Israel had to fight terrorism on her own.

One of his comments was half-correct and ignored the world’s lack of appreciation for Israel’s putting a virtual end to aerial hijackings in the 1970s.

Schumer said, “Had the world come down when the terrorists shot the Israeli athletes at the Olympics (in Munich 1972), or hijacked El AL planes, and come down on them hard, we wouldn’t have had what happened in Paris, today.”

The world indeed ignored the massacre of Israeli athletes at Munich, and the Olympics Games went on as usual, as if there was only a technical delay.

But it was Israel that taught the world how to deal with the plague of aerial hijackings in the 1970s. Operation Entebbe put a virtual end to the terrorism in the air when elite IDF commandos raided the Entebbe airport in 1976 to rescue more than 100 hostages taken by Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine terrorists.

The world never thanked Israel and instead literally condoned years of terror by excusing it as a result of the “occupation.” So far, no one in Paris has said that those ISIS suicide terrorists bombed and gunned down innocent civilians because of settlements.

Ya’alon Urges EU to Intensify Anti-Terror Measures

Sunday, November 15th, 2015

Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon warned Sunday that Europe must intensify its anti-terror efforts if it is to combat threats like Da’esh (ISIS).

In an interview with Galei Tzahal Army Radio, Ya’alon urged the member states in the European Union to pass laws that would “enable a more effective battle against terrorism.”

The recommendation came in the wake of the multi-site mass casualty attack in Paris carried out Friday night against France by Da’esh, which cost the lives of at least 129 people. More than 350 others were wounded, including 99 who remain in critical condition. Among the wounded are U.S. and British citizens, officials said.

“The Europeans understand that there is a threat, but they have not taken the measures they could have; for example, changing the legislation to allow listening in on potential terrorists,” Ya’alon pointed out.

“The balance between security and human rights in Europe so far has been tipped in favor of human rights,” he added, “but now there is no longer a choice. From now on, more weight must be given to the considerations of security, in order to defend democracy,” he said.

Ya’alon recommended checks at the entrances to public places, and increased passport controls throughout Europe as basic security measures for officials to put into place. He also noted that it is important to “bridge the gap in Turkey” with regard to the corridor used by Da’esh (ISIS) terrorists as they pass in and out of Syria.

The route to Europe and elsewhere in the world from ISIS-held territories runs across the Syrian border directly into Turkey, and from there onward to the rest of the world.

“We are all in the same boat when it comes to fighting terrorism and defending Western civilization,” Ya’alon said.

Shin Bet & IDF Arrest Arab Murder Suspect in Otniel Terror Attack

Sunday, November 15th, 2015

Shin Bet agents together with IDF soldiers from the Yehuda Brigade and the elite Duvdevan Hebron unit captured a suspect in connection with the terror attack on Friday (Nov. 13) that murdered Rabbi Jacob Litman and his son Netanel Litman near Otniel, in Judea. Additional suspects were captured as well.

During the course of the arrest, the murder weapon and vehicle used in the attack were both discovered as well.

Initial investigation and interrogation by the Shin Bet confirmed the suspect’s connection with Friday’s terror attack, according to a statement by security sources. Further details about the investigation remain under a gag order at the present time, the Shin Bet said.

A third family member was also wounded in the attack. The family, from Kiryat Arba, was traveling to a Shabbat weekend in Meitar, located about a mile past the Yattir checkpoint inside the 1949 Armistice Line, in order to celebrate the upcoming nuptials of their daughter.

But instead, Rabbi Litman and his son Netanel, a paramedic with Magen David Adom, were laid to rest Saturday night at 9 pm. President Reuven Rivlin, Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat, GOC Central Command Roni Numa, and Deputy Defense Minister Eli Ben-Dahan were among the hundreds of Israelis who attended the funeral as the two family members were laid to rest.

In addition to Netanel’s heartbroken brother and bride-to-be sister, President Reuven Rivlin eulogized the father and son as well. Mincing no words, Rivlin warned the rest of the world: “The scenes of death and bloodshed we have witnessed in Paris, throughout the Middle East, and here in our country, should serve as a warning to us all.

“Whether in Paris or Hebron, Jerusalem or New York, we must fight a bitter and stubborn struggle against those who massacre innocent people, against those who murder in cold blood.”

 

The IDF has pledged to increase patrols on roads in the southern Hebron Hills, where the attack took place, and in general to further beef up security in the region. It is clear the Palestinian Authority Arabs are hoping to frighten those who live in the area and those who travel to and from their communities as well — scare them enough, in fact, so that they will leave.

The answer to such tactics is to stand together, stand strong and to strengthen the settlements. Cowering in the face of terror has only ever emboldened terrorists in the past.

IDF Demolishes Homes of 4 Palestinian Authority Terrorists

Saturday, November 14th, 2015

Israeli security forces have demolished homes of four Palestinian Authority residents, including the resident of the murders of Rabbi Eitan and Naama Henkin and Malachi Rosenfeld.

The homes are located in Shechem and north of Ramallah.

The IDF stated:

On October 1, Yahia Muhammad Naif Abdullah Hajj Hamad, Samir Zahir Ibrahim Kusah, and Karem Lufti Fatahi Razek plotted and executed the lethal attack on Naama and Eitan Henkin.

The terrorist shot and murdered the two parents in front of their four children on the main route between the communities of Alon Moreh and Itamar.

On June 29, Maad Hamed shot and murdered Malachi Rosenfeld on his way back from a basketball game.

The IDF cleared out the families from the homes before they were blown up.

The Supreme Court approved the demolitions after several days of hearings that were drawn out because of arguments by human rights groups that the action punishes people who have not been accused of terrorism.

The government views demolishing terrorists’ homes as a deterrent to terror, and Mark Regev, spokesman for the Office of the Prime Minister, stated:

There are all too many incentives to encourage people to commit terrorist crimes. People who commit these terrorist crimes are not afraid to die. So the fear that the house that they lived in will be destroyed after they are gone provides an effective deterrence and saves lives.

 

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.
