IDF Protects Jews’ Midnight Mission to Repair Joseph’s Tomb

Tuesday, November 3rd, 2015

IDF soldiers escorted Jewish workers on an overnight mission to repair the latest nightmare of destruction left by hate-filled Palestinian Authority attackers at the Tomb of the Biblical Patriarch Joseph.

The renovations came approximately two weeks after the Arabs had bashed up and then burned the sacred site.

They were carried out under an initiative by the Samaria (Shomron) Regional Council together with the regional brigade of the IDF, according to the Hebrew-language NRG news site.

Special construction workers entered the area after midnight with a military escort to perform the necessary comprehensive repairs on the ancient tomb.

A group of some 30 Breslov hasidim subsequently entered Joseph’s Tomb to make repairs to the site on the orders of fugitive Rabbi Eliezer Berland, the spiritual leader of Shuvu Banim, but did not coordinate their trip with the IDF. The group was attacked by local Arabs; five were arrested by police in the Samaria Jewish city of Ariel, according to a report on the Hebrew-language Kikar Shabbat website. In addition, one of the hasidim who was left behind at the Tomb was set afire by the Arabs.

Rabbi Yitzhak Yosef, Sephardic Chief Rabbi of Israel and the Rishon LeZion – rosh yeshiva of Yeshivat Hazon Ovadia – made a point of visiting the Tomb the next night with security provided by the IDF. The goal was to make an accurate assessment of the damage to the site perpetrated by the terrorists – including the Palestinian Authority police who participated in the attack – and to protest that damage.

The convoy in which the esteemed rabbi traveled was attacked by Palestinian Authority Arabs, who hurled rocks at the vehicles as they traveled towards the site, which is located in the ancient city of Shechem – today referred to by Arabs as “Nablus.”

Under the Oslo Accords, the city is controlled by the Palestinian Authority, but the PA is legally required to allow Jews free access to the Tomb.

Following the visit of the chief rabbi, the Tomb was torched again by enraged Palestinian Authority Arabs.

Friday Sermon at Gaza Mosque: ‘We Will Turn You Into Scattered Body Parts’

Monday, October 26th, 2015

It has become a regular fashion statement for radical Islamist clerics to rise to the podium in pristine dark robes and snow-white keffiyahs in order to preach new ways to murder Jews.

Among the Gaza crowd in particular it is de rigeur for Islamist preachers to find a spare but elegantly appointed archway from which to deliver the words of “glory,” so cameras will have a nice but neutral backdrop for the deliverer of the ‘hellfire.’

On October 23, Abu Hamza Shour exhorted followers at a Gaza mosque during his Friday sermon to “poison their daggers” and “blow up” Jews in “martyrdom operations.”

The sermon, posted on the Internet, was picked up and translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI).

“The time for demonstrations and rallies is over, and so is the time for pleading for help,” the cleric said.

“It is now the time to harvest, the time for operations, the time for swords, bloodshed, and the pulling of the trigger.

“O son of the West Bank rage! By Allah, only rage will liberate this land.

“O people of the West Bank, kill them! Poison your daggers, and then stab or slaughter them.

“Blow them up, shed their blood, pounce on them, dismember them, paralyze them, make the earth quake under their feet, trample on their heads.

Displaying an explosives belt he proclaimed, “The next martyrdom-seeking operations will be carried out with [such] explosives belts…

Abu Hamza Ashour held up the explosives belt, saying to the imaginary Jews in the audience: “This is what awaits you. This is what is being prepared for you. This is your nightmare. This is what the mujahedeen are preparing for you. (This sounds a little like the chant that Jews say during the kapparot ceremony that is performed each year prior to Yom Kippur, in which the repentent sinner expresses remorse and transfers his or her sins to a live chicken — or money — in order to expiate the aforementioned sins.)

“By Allah, we will use it to turn you into body parts, and we will send you messages written in blood.

“By Allah, we will annihilate you with it. We will turn you into lifeless corpses, and into scattered body parts, Allah willing. This is what will liberate our land, Allah willing.

Family of American Killed in Flotilla Raid Suing Ehud Barak, But Accounts Suggest Not Guilty

Thursday, October 22nd, 2015

(JNi.media) The parents of a young American who lived in Turkey and was killed on board the Marmara in the flotilla to Gaza in 2010, filed a civil suit in a Los Angeles court against Ehud Barak, who served as Israel’s Defense Minister at the time. The plaintiffs allege that their son, Furkan Doğan, was shot five times, once in the head at close range.

Furkan Doğan was born to ethnic Turkish parents in Troy, New York on October 20, 1991, precisely 24 years to the day prior to the lawsuit. He moved to Turkey at the age of two. His father, Ahmet Doğan, graduated from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute with an MBA in accounting, and works as assistant professor of accounting at Erciyes University in Kayseri, Turkey.

Doğan was not too interested in politics, according to the NY Times’ Roger Cohen. It’s not clear, then, why he decided to participate in the Gaza Flotilla. His father said “Furkan was a US citizen only and he never thought that he would be killed since he was an American citizen.” But his final diary entry written on the ship, reveals a zeal for martyrdom: “It is the last hours to martyrdom, insha’Allah [God willing]. I am wondering if there is a more beautiful thing. The more beautiful thing is only my mother, but I’m not sure. The comparison is very difficult. Martyrdom or my mother? Now, the hall has been evacuated. So far people were not serious, but they have become serious recently.”

According to Reuters, the civil case is being brought by some of the same human rights lawyers who have been attempting, to push on the International Criminal Court (ICC) in the Hague to launch a criminal investigation of the Marmara case.

According to IDF accounts consolidated by Wikipedia, the MV Mavi Marmara was part of the Gaza Freedom Flotilla, organized by the Free Gaza Movement and the Turkish Foundation for Human Rights and Freedoms and Humanitarian Relief (İHH). It claimed to be carrying humanitarian aid and construction materials, in an attempt to ram through the Israeli-Egyptian blockade of the Gaza Strip. Israel, which questioned the humanitarian motives of flotilla organizers, said they were welcome to unload their cargo in Ashdod, in southern Israel, to be trucked to Gaza following an inspection—but they refused.

On May 30, at 11 PM, the Israeli Navy’s three warships, UH-60 Black Hawk helicopters, and 71 commandos made contact with the flotilla, some 120 miles northwest of Gaza, 80 miles off the coast of southern Lebanon, in international waters, and ordered the ships to follow them to port in Israel or be boarded.

After a failed attempt to board the Marmara from speedboats, the Navy sent in the Black Hawk with a 15-man assault team on board. A rope was dropped from the helicopter to the ship’, but three passengers tied it to the deck. A second rope was dropped and the soldiers started sliding down to the deck. Each soldier was met by a group of violent passengers who assaulted him with makeshift weapons. The commandos responded with their less-lethal weapons and tried to physically fight off the passengers.

Three Israelis were captured. The first, the commanding officer of the assault team, was roping down from the helicopter when he was attacked by ten men before his feet hit the deck. He was beaten across his body and head, then picked up and thrown to the lower deck, where he was attacked by a dozen passengers. They beat and choked him, removed his bulletproof vest and sidearm and smashed his helmet, and shoved him into a passenger hall below deck.

Beit Shemesh Terrorists Linked to Hamas

Thursday, October 22nd, 2015

Two Arab terrorists who carried out an attack Thursday morning in Beit Shemesh appear to be linked to Gaza’s ruling Hamas terrorist organization.

The attackers wore shirts emblazoned with symbols of the Izz a-Din al-Qassam Brigades, police spokesperson Micky Rosenfeld confirmed to JewishPress.com.

Izz a-Din al-Qassam Brigades is the military wing of Hamas.

Magdad Alhih and Mahmoud Ghanimat, both age 21, were residents of the village of Surif in the Hebron / Gush Etzion area.

One of the two terrorists was declared dead on arrival at Hadassah Ein Kerem Medical Center. The second attacker is still living and is listed in serious condition.

Israel to Withhold Bodies of Terrorists From Families

Wednesday, October 14th, 2015

Israel’s Security Cabinet voted Wednesday to approve a suggestion by Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan not to return to families bodies of terrorists killed during attacks.

“The family of the terrorist turns the funeral into a demonstration of support for terrorism, and incitement to murder. We must not allow it,” Erdan said.

“We must do everything possible to prevent the terrorist from receiving honors and ceremonies after having carried out an attack.”

Erdan also suggested burying such terrorists in IDF cemeteries on the far borders of Israel that have been set aside for this purpose.

Families often turn funerals for terrorist relatives into massive celebrations where the departed jihadist is honored as a hero.

The nation’s Security Cabinet also approved a host of other security measures late Tuesday night.

Interior Minister Revoking Residency From Terrorists ‘Unfit to Live Among Us’

Sunday, October 11th, 2015

Interior Minister Silvan Shalom has instructed the Population and Immigration Authority to begin revoking the residency status of two terrorists who attacked Israelis last week.

Both terrorists live in Jerusalem neighborhoods.

The decision was made and is being carried out under the Interior Minister’s authority as delineated by Article 11 of the Law of Citizenship and Entry into Israel.

When the process is completed, the attackers will no longer have the legal right to receive Israeli social benefits. These include stipends from the National Insurance Institute (Bituach Leumi), and medical insurance (kupat holim) and related medical care.

“These terrorists clearly broke – and severely broke – their loyalty to the State of Israel through their attempts to kill innocents, and as such they are not fit to live among us,” Shalom said.

“We cannot allow terrorists and enemy actors to take advantage of their status as citizens or residents in our country to carry out attacks.”

The interior minister warned that he would do the same with anyone else who acted likewise.

“We must expel these bloodthirsty killers from among us,” Shalom declared.

This is not the first time that Article 11 of the Citizenship and Entry into Israel law has been invoked against terrorists to revoke their residency status. Past ministers have acted similarly in times of severe terror against Israel.
