Gaza’s Hamas Leader Urges Arabs to ‘Keep Momentum of Intifada’

Monday, November 16th, 2015

As world leaders meet in Turkey to search for a way to end the bloodshed perpetrated by radical Islamist terrorists like Da’esh (ISIS) on their shores, Gaza’s Hamas terror organization is doing its best to ramp up the violence.

De facto Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh told members of the Palestinian Authority on Saturday it is essential that the Palestinian Authority does not return to any cooperation with Israel.

Haniyeh, who serves as deputy chairman of the Hamas political bureau, said the “Jerusalem intifada must not be invested in returning to negotiations with Israel.”

Speaking at the third National Palestinian Security Forum over the weekend, Haniyeh blamed “Israeli crimes against Palestinians in Jerusalem and the occupied West Bank” for the “outbreak of the intifada.”

He called on all factions of the Palestinian Authority to form a united leadership to “keep the momentum of the intifada,” the Hamas newspaper Alresalah reported.

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.

Peace Now Chief Urges IDF to Put Hero Soldier ‘on Leave’

Friday, November 6th, 2015

Peace Now head Yariv Oppenheimer called in a Hebrew-language tweet on Thursday for the IDF to send a hero soldier on leave after he saved lives and prevented major tragedies.

The soldier in question had eliminated three murderous Arab terrorists who attempted attacks over the past two weeks.

“It would be good for the IDF to give leave a few days leave to the soldier that was involved in preventing the terror attack. A situation where a soldier kills 3 attackers in 2 days is not good for the soldier or for the Matzav [situation]”

Yariv Oppenheimer's tweet.

Yariv Oppenheimer’s tweet.

It’s not clear how a soldier successfully killing three terrorists is not good for the current situation. It seems to only be not so good for the terrorists.

The soldier in question is IDF Cpl. “T” of the Shimshon Battalion in the Kfir Brigade. The soldier shot and killed an Arab terrorist Thursday night when he tried to stab fellow troops in Gush Etzion. Last week, he killed two other terrorists in a similar attack, also in Gush Etzion.

The soldier, only been in uniform for eight months, was referred to in a JewishPress.com article as “The Terminator” – an appellation that caught the eye of the Bethlehem-based Ma’an news service, which quoted the report.

The soldier’s Kfir Brigade officers have commended the rapid response and cool temper of the young warrior, whose actions under pressure prevented more serious results.

Gaza ‘Hitler’ Boutique Offers Hot Masked Mannequins Brandishing Knives

Tuesday, November 3rd, 2015

(JNi.media) Fashion is a business that must keep its ear close to the ground, to identify trends and capitalize on public whims. Which is why you can’t really blame the owners of a clothing store in the Nuseirat refugee camp in central Gaza Strip for posting mannequins in black balaclavas (the bank robber’s ski mask) and black-and-white checked keffiyehs over their faces. waving Palestinian flags in one hand and a knife in the other. The hat tip for discovering this new gem goes to Facebook user Mohammed Asad who took the first shot of the inspired display on Nov. 1, and to Israel Radio’s Arab affairs correspondent Gal Berger who ran with the story.

The combination of the store’s name glorifying the world’s most reviled anti-Semite with the most negative aspects of the Palestinian image, an image Palestinian officials are trying to erase—claiming those killed youths were non violent protesters, “executed” by Israeli security forces—depicts accurately the state of mind of today’s Palestinians, as only a fashion enterprise can do.

Defense Ministry Official: Eilat Bound Aircraft Receive Triple Protection against Missiles

Sunday, November 1st, 2015

(JNi.media) The Israeli government is still waiting, like the rest of us, for results from the Egyptian investigation of the Russian plane that crashed in the Sinai on its way from Sharm el-Sheikh to St. Petersburg. Although it is not largely believed that this was done deliberately, as ISIS is claiming, Israeli state officials are still waiting to see proof that the Islamic State is not behind the crash.

Amos Gilad, head of the political and security office in the Defense Ministry, told Walla on Sunday: “We trust the Egyptian statements which have shown good judgment and a professional examination. ISIS do have anti-aircraft missiles, but not the type that can hit a plane at a cruising altitude (the Russian plane was at an altitude of 40 thousand feet and shoulder-fired missiles simply do not reach that far up). There will be an in-depth investigation to rule out any possibilities of terror. Right now, they’re leaning towards a technical malfunction.”

Regarding the suspension of Air France and Lufthansa flights that pass over the Sinai, Gilad said: “These private companies have decided to suspend flights until they see the test results. Israeli companies will continue flying to Eilat normally because their airplanes are protected in three envelopes. The Elbit defense system is most impressive technologically, and Israel has adopted it. In addition, the Israeli Intelligence and deterrence systems are operating to prevent this kind of situation. Israel is well aware of the range of threats emanating from ISIS. This is a murderous organization with extremist ideologies that tries to undermine the existing order in the Middle East.”

Meanwhile, Russia’s air safety regulator has ordered Metrojet, the airline whose charter plane crashed in the Sinai, to suspend flights pending the probe, Al Ahram reported. Rostransnadzor, Russia’s transport safety watchdog, on Sunday ordered the carrier to ground its fleet of Airbus A321s following Saturday’s crash.

Update: 55-Yr-Old Jew Stabbed by Arab Near Meitzad in Gush Etzion

One Jew was wounded Sunday morning in an Arab terror attack at the entrance to Metzad, a hareidi-religious community of 535 people, located in the Gush Etzion block in Judea.

According to the IDF, “Initial reports suggest two assailants disguised as ultra-Orthodox men attacked the Israeli in Gush Etzion. The Israeli responded to the attack, firing towards the assailants before they fled the scene. Forces are currently searching the area for the perpetrators.”

Moments before, the victim exited his car due to the hail of rocks hurled at the victim’s car and those already on the road. One of the terrorists then attacked the Israeli, stabbing him in the chest, and then fled.

The 55-year-old Israeli victm was treated at the scene and then rushed to Hadassah Ein Kerem Medical Center in Jerusalem, where he is listed in fair condition.

At about the same time, Border Guard Police officers detained an Arab during a routine search on Sunday morning as he tried to cross a checkpoint at the Tapuach Junction.

The suspect was held for questioning by security officials.
