Funeral for Karen Yemima HY”D [photos]

Monday, October 27th, 2014

The funeral of Karen Yemima Mosquera was held Monday night, after midnight, starting at the Shamgar Funeral Home and ending on the Mount of Olives, where she was buried.

Hundreds of people attended the funeral.

Karen Yemima, an Olah Chadasha, was in Israel as part of her conversion process to Judaism. She died on Sunday, after being critically wounded in the Jerusalem Light Rail terror attack last Wednesday. In that attack, an Arab terrorist drove onto the train platform and ran over 9 people, killing Karen Yemima, and 3 month old Chaya Zissel Braun.

The state of Israel flew in Karen Yemima’s family from Ecuador following the attack.

Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat and the Ecuadorian ambassador to Israel were at the funeral.

The funeral of Karen Yemima was delayed by an hour, as the family of the terrorist planned their funeral at the same time, and police were concerned the terrorist’s funeral would exhibit the typical Arab violence associated with the funeral of killed terrorists, and they did not want any disruptions to Karen Yemima’s funeral or danger to the participants.

The funeral for the terrorist was held under heavy police guard with only a few dozen participants as the police demanded.

But dozens of other Arabs in the Shiloach (Silwan) did go wild while the funeral was going on, shooting fireworks at police. Police responded with riot dispersal tools.

PA-American Arab Firebomber Buried with Terrorist Headband

Sunday, October 26th, 2014

In death, many things become clear. Including a U.S. Arab citizen teenager’s terrorist membership.

The body of a 14-year-old terrorist-in-training killed while attacking Jewish drivers on Friday night was dressed in his finest for burial this weekend. Orwa Abd al-Hadi Hammad was tenderly wrapped in a black-and-white checkered keffiyah.

Encircling his brow was a fancy green terrorist headband bearing the ‘Qataib al Qassam’ logo.

The Palestinian Authority-American Arab teen was certainly no boy scout. He was killed while hurling a firebomb (Molotov cocktail) at passing Israeli vehicles on Highway 60 north of Jerusalem.

Israeli soldiers who had set up a lookout patrol on the highway spotted the group of teenage terrorists attacking civilians passing on the road.

The slogan and logo were translated by Yigal Carmon and Dr. Mordechai Kedar from a photo published on the website of the Bethlehem-based Ma’an news agency. They indicate that Hammad was linked to the Izz a-Din al-Qassam: the military wing of the Hamas terrrorist organization.

Born in New Orleans, Louisiana, Hammad moved to the PA village of Silwad with his family at age six, according to the U.S. State Department. The U.S. had immediately issued a statement of “deepest condolences to the family of a U.S. citizen minor who was killed by the Israeli Defense Forces during clashes in Silwad.”

Hammad’s cousin admitted, meanwhile, that he was part of a group who were hurling rocks and firebombs at cars traveling down Highway 60 on Friday night.

The velocity of a rock or fireball the size of a baseball or larger, when hurled straight into the moving windshield of a driver or front seat passenger, can create an impact that shatters the glass instantly. At the very least, the driver is stunned, if not badly wounded. Or dead.

Road terror attacks are intended to kill, and they have. When they don’t, they maim their intended victims. Failing that, they succeed in traumatizing their targets.

This is not about “throwing rocks” like little school children. This is an issue of life and death — on both sides of the road — because in Israel, people of any age who hurl rocks or firebombs or fireworks at traveling vehicles are doing it in order to kill those within. That qualifies them as terrorists, qualifying them as a potential deadly threat to a driver and a target the second they raise a hand to hurl any form of ammunition at a traveling vehicle, its driver and its passengers.

Second Victim From Jerusalem Light Rail Terror Attack Dies

Sunday, October 26th, 2014

Karen Yemima Muskara (22), a tourist from Ecuador, is the second victim to die from last week’s terror attack on the Jerusalem Light Rail platform near Ammunition Hill. She was being treated at Hadassah Ein Kerem following the attack.

The victim was in Israel, and in the process of converting to Judaism. [We have a reader report that she completed her conversion to Judaism and was just waiting to receive her Teudat Zehut - Israeli ID card.]

She will be buried tonight, Sunday, at 12:30am (time updated). The funeral will start at the Shamgar Funeral Home and then head to the Mount of Olives.

The public is asked to go to the funeral.

The terrorist, Abdel Rahman al-Shaludi, also killed 3 month old Chaya Zissel Braun when he drove his car onto the train platform, running down nine commuters.

Shaludi, a member of Hamas, was subsequently shot by a policeman and died a few hours later in the hospital.

Following his death, Arabs in eastern Jerusalem began to riot again.

Security Sabotaged Around Jordan Valley Moshav

Sunday, October 26th, 2014

A chilling discovery was made Sunday morning by members of Moshav Hamra in the Jordan Valley — vandals chopped down and destroyed poles bearing electric power to the moshav.

The destruction by unknown hands signaled a plot to cut off power and communications to and from the moshav.

It might also potentially cut off the community’s ability to call for help in a terrorist attack.

The Palestinian Authority has insistently demanded that Israel hand over the Jordan Valley as part of the lands it desires for the creation of its hoped-for sovereign country.

Israel is unwilling to comply with this demand since the Jordan Valley has strong military significance. Relinquishing such a strategic location would be an act of national suicide.

District police told the Hebrew-language 0404 website that investigators were sent to the site and subsequently confirmed the attack appeared to have been carried out over the weekend.

Death to Terrorists

Israelis protest at Jerusalem’s Ammunition Hill train platform where an Arab terrorist ran over a group of commuters, killing a 3 month old baby.

They are carrying signs, “Death to Terrorists”.

Tearful Message from Baby Terror Victim’s Grandfather

Friday, October 24th, 2014

Have faith. Be strong. Do good.

That’s the message of a tearful grandfather of his three-month-old granddaughter Chaya Zissel Braun, who was murdered in Wednesday’s terror attack on the light rail train in the French Hill neighborhood of Jerusalem.

Chaya was a “pure soul” who “didn’t do anything bad to anybody,” said her grandfather, Shimshon Halperin. He said her parents have accepted “with love” what he sees as God’s decree.

“We believe that from the whole wide world, from the land of Israel, from Jerusalem, she was chosen to be the public sacrifice,” he told a group of reporters on Thursday night in Jerusalem, alluding to sacrifices given in the ancient Holy Temple. “God gives; God takes away.”

Standing in a dim courtyard in a Haredi neighborhood of Jerusalem, outside the apartment where the family was sitting shiva, Halperin said that his daughter and her husband had wanted a baby for years. He explained that Chaya’s middle name, Zissel, comes from the Yiddish word for “sweet,” and hid eyes welled up with tears as he was describing how his daughter would rock Chaya.

“You can take for granted the way a grandfather feels for a granddaughter that has just been murdered,” he said. “You can see it.”

Chaya and her parents were returning from the baby’s first trip to the Western Wall when the car rammed into the crowd. Halperin said Chaya was flung in the air and landed on the pavement.

He thanked the soldiers, policemen and hospital employees who tried to save Chaya’s life.

For Halperin, Chaya’s death is a sign that Jews should rededicate themselves to Torah, good deeds and Jewish commandments. He said he hopes, in Chaya’s merit, that more Jews observe Shabbat and imbue their lives with more meaning.

“God is trying to wake us up,” he said. “To take [something] upon ourselves, to try to get better, to try to do a good deed, to behave to each other better.”
