Terrorist Fails Attack Attempt on IDF Soldier in Hebron

Thursday, October 22nd, 2015

An Arab terrorist tried but failed to stab an IDF soldier in the Tel Rumeida neighborhood of Hebron, near the Cave of the Patriarchs, local sources said.

The attack occurred near the the Hassam Shoter checkpoint. IDF troops are in pursuit of the terrorist, who fled after he was blocked from reaching his target.

Initial reports indicate no one was injured.

Just two days ago, on Tuesday (Oct. 20) two Arab terrorists – 15-year-old Bashar Ja’abri and 17-year-old Husam Ja’abri stabbed an IDF soldier near a Jewish apartment building in Hebron on Tuesday night.

The soldier sustained a head injury. His fellow troops shot and killed both attackers. None of the Jewish residents of the building, Beit HaShalom (House of Peace) were hurt in the attack.

Earlier in the day, 50-year-old Avraham Asher Hasano of Kiryat Arba was murdered in a stone-throwing attack that targeted his vehicle as he was driving past the al-Fawar junction, southwest of Hebron.

When Hasano got out of his car due to the damage inflicted on the vehicle, he was struck and killed by an Arab truck driver who drove up behind him, and then fled to the Arab village of Dura, near Hebron.

The driver later turned himself in to the Palestinian Authority police, saying he feared for his life “in the current environment.” PA Police turned him over to Israel Police for questioning.

Mistaken for Terrorist, Man Killed in Jerusalem

Wednesday, October 21st, 2015

It was a tragic, horrible case of mistaken identity that ended in rage and tears.

Witnesses say two security officials began to board an Egged bus in the Romema section of Jerusalem late Wednesday night — but a passenger who was disembarking became suspicious, and asked them to show their IDs.

One of the soldiers responded by asking the passenger for his ID as well.

An argument then ensued, with the passenger possibly attacking the soldier, and may have tried to grab his gun.

A shot rang out.

And now a Jew is dead.

The current wave of terror has brought everyone’s tolerance for tension to the edge, with each person looking twice at the next and double-checking even himself in the mirror in the morning before breakfast.

Some children and even adults are reporting difficulties with falling and staying asleep, and mental health professionals are reporting a higher-than-average incidence of anxiety among populations in larger cities, particularly in Jerusalem.

People who suffer from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) are at particularly high risk for a recurrence of symptoms during these times, and should not hesitate to seek assistance if they experience flashbacks or any other upsetting feelings at any time.

In Jerusalem, Shaare Zedek Medical Center is available to provide support to anyone who is experience extreme anxiety, regardless of medical insurance coverage or ability to pay, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Simply go to the hospital emergency room and request assistance at the desk.

Likewise, Health Ministry mental health clinics around the city are also providing supportive counseling as well for those who feel overwhelmed by the current situation.

Fatah’s ‘Symphony of Love’ for Jerusalem on Twitter

Thursday, October 15th, 2015

As Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas proclaims the wish of his people for “peace,” the PA’s leading Fatah faction sings a very different song.

In a cartoon tweeted by Fatah on its official Twitter account, a masked Palestinian Arab is playing a knife as a violin, using a key for the bow – symbolizing the “return” of Palestinian Arabs to their abandoned homes from 1948.

The background shown is that of the currently embattled grounds of the Al Aqsa Mosque and the Dome of the Rock, on the Temple Mount.

The cartoon, a blunt warning to Israelis of more butchery with hatchets and knives, was caught and translated by the Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) watchdog organization.

“A symphony of love for Jerusalem. If the occupation wants to hear it again and again, it should continue invading Jerusalem, attacking our noble women and desecrate our Noble Sanctuary (i.e., the Al-Aqsa Mosque plaza) and our Jerusalem.” [Fatah Twitter account, Oct. 12, 2015]

The text echoes Abbas’ own words (as documented by PMW), as the Palestinian leader encouraged Arabs to “protect the holy places.”

The mention of “noble women” and “desecration” of Al-Aqsa echoes the refrain sung by Arab terrorist Muhannad Halabi listing the reasons for his murderous attack that robbed two people of their lives in Jerusalem.

New Anti-Terror Guidelines for Police: Shoot Them Now, Talk Later

Thursday, October 15th, 2015

“Shoot now and negotiate later” is the new directive for police when confronting terrorists in a closed place, such as a bus or building, Haaretz reported Thursday.

The new guidelines change the tactic whereby a negotiating team would arrive before a SWAT team could do what it came to do and eliminate any threat of terror by killing the terrorist.

The change might meet with disapproval from organizations such as the United Nations and “human rights” organizations that accuse Israel of using “disproportional force” by killing a terrorist before he or she kills someone else.

The same voices often add that “Israel has a right to defend itself.”

Hundreds of Gaza Arabs Riot at Erez Border Crossing

Tuesday, October 13th, 2015

Hundreds of Arab residents threw stones and burned tires at the Erez border crossing with northern Gaza at midday on Tuesday.

Some 200 Palestinian Arabs rioted in a possible attempt to storm the crossing, similar to the breach in the security fence that occurred late Monday and two days earlier, on Saturday as well.

Civilian contractors working on Monday to repair the damage from Saturday’s breach of the fence were attacked Monday by Palestinian Arab terrorists from the Gaza side of the border.

Security personnel closed the Erez crossing Tuesday in response to the violence and IDF soldiers at the scene used riot dispersal methods to address the situation.
