Arab Terrorists Blocking Roads, Hurling Rocks Around Jerusalem

Sunday, August 9th, 2015

Jerusalem Arabs were hurling rocks at Israeli vehicles traveling on the main arteries leading in and out the capital north and east of Jerusalem on Saturday night.

Rock attacks were reported in the area of Isawiyya in northern Jerusalem, where rioting was brought under control by Border Guard Police officers using riot dispersal measures.

Palestinian Authority Arab terrorists also hurled rocks at an Israeli bus just outside the tunnel between Jerusalem and the suburb of Ma’ale Adumim. None of the passengers on the bus were physically injured but the windshield of the bus was smashed.

IDF soldiers were deployed to the area to search for the terrorists.

Dozens of Arabs in other areas have also been blocking roads and hurling rocks and firebombs at IDF soldiers and Israel Police this weekend.

Security forces were already on high alert, however, and fully prepared to contend with any disturbances or possible attacks on civilians.

Israel Arrests Six Terror Fugitives

Sunday, July 5th, 2015

Israeli forces arrested six terrorist fugitives overnight in IDF operations taking place in locations throughout Judea and Samaria.

One of the six, caught in Hebron, was identified as a member of the Gaza-based Hamas terrorist organization.

The suspects have been transferred to the Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) for further questioning and investigation.

ISIS-Linked Sinai Terrorists Attempt to Drag Israel Into War With Rocket Fire

Friday, July 3rd, 2015

Sinai terrorists — already engaged in battle with Egypt — expanded their range of attack on Friday to include southern Israel. At least one, possibly two rockets were launched in the direction of the Eshkol Regional Council district at about 4:30 pm local time.

The rocket fire followed two intense days of clashes between Da’esh (ISIS)-linked “Sinai Province” terrorists and top Egyptian security personnel from the army and police. The Gaza-based Hamas terror organization, spawned originally by the outlawed Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood, was also found to have been helping Sinai Province in their battle, according to the IDF.

The jihadists ambushed the Egyptian forces in 15 separate locations on Wednesday using advanced weaponry, much of which appeared to have been produced by Russia. An Egyptian government spokesperson said more than 100 terrorists were killed in the battle, which continued into Thursday.

The IDF went to high alert along the southern border in the wake of the clashes. Highway 12, which traverses the southern Negev to Eilat, was officially closed to civilian traffic at 5 am Friday until further notice. “The highway was closed temporarily in line with the situation assessments, out of security considerations and the obligation to protect the citizens of Israel,” and IDF spokesperson said on Friday.

Israeli officials confirmed that one of the rockets fired on Friday landed in an open area in the district close to what was the Israeli-Egyptian border. IDF officials believe the rocket was fired from the Sinai Peninsula due to its proximity to the border.

Residents of Jewish communities near the Israel-Egypt border had a window of barely 15 seconds in which to race for shelter, courtesy of the Code Red rocket alert siren. The residents are maintaining their awareness for the duration, knowing they may once again need to make a run for their safe spaces over the Sabbath at any time.

TZOHAR Rabbis Say Forced Feeding of Hunger Striking Terrorists OK Under Jewish Law

Tuesday, June 16th, 2015

(JERUSALEM- June 16, 2015) Amidst a growing controversy within the Israeli government and justice system over responses to planned “hunger strikes” in the country’s prisons, the Tzohar Rabbinical Organization said that forced feedings of prisoners to prevent them doing harm to themselves is fully acceptable under Jewish law.

Tzohar’s announcement came following a governmental decision earlier in the week which allowed prison authorities to force nutrition upon prisoners in instances where self-imposed hunger strikes posed a danger to the patient’s well-being.

“In Jewish tradition, human life is something which is given to us by God and it is not up to us to harm our own bodies- even if it is for something one views as having great value. This includes taking upon oneself a hunger strike,” Tzohar said in a statement. “We therefore concur with the government’s decision that when viewed as judicially prudent, prisoners can be forced to intake nutrition and this action would be in accordance with halacha and salutes the Jewish outlook on the centrality of human life.”

Tzohar Founder and President Rabbi David Stav added, “The human body was created in God’s image and we as people have no right to intentionally harm that creation. I therefore believe the government decision was the correct one and should be respected.”

Infantry Unit Spots Syrian Terrorists, IAF Neutralizes Them

Sunday, April 26th, 2015

The IDF killed 4 terrorists on the Israel-Syrian border on Sunday evening around 9:30 PM.

The 4 terrorists were spotted trying to plant explosives along the border with Israel, near Majdal Shams.

The terror cell were taken out by an IAF aircraft once they tried to place the bomb on the Israeli side of the border on the northern Golan Heights.

The army said it will not tolerate any attempt to breach or harm Israel’s sovereignty.

The terrorists were spotted by an infantry unit who called it in.

PLO Won’t Fight in Yarmouk, as Left Call to Flood Israel with Refugees

Sunday, April 12th, 2015

Commissioner-General Pierre Krähenbühl, the head of UNRWA, left to visit Syria on Saturday to discuss the situation in Yarmouk, a ‘Palestinian’ refugee camp in Damascus, Syria, established in 1957, and actually a suburb of Damascus, with real buildings, streets and infrastructure, and not a tent city as the name implies.

All the relief workers have fled the neighborhood since Islamic State invaded, and the situation in the neighborhood has been described as “beyond inhumane”.

Reading through the purposefully vague wording of the official UNRWA press release, it appears that Krähenbühl will not actually visit the Yarmouk neighborhood, though it tries to give off the impression that he would.

On April 1, Islamic State (Da’esh) attacked and overran Yarmouk, a suburb in southern Damascus, fighting the local Hamas-affiliated terror group, Bait al-Maqdis, that controlled the neighorhood.

There is another terror group in the Sinai also named Bait al-Maqdis, who are thought to have had connections with Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood, but have since sworn allegiance to Islamic State.

Da’esh took over most of the southern Damascus neighborhood, and were reportedly assisted by members of Jabhat Al-Nusra who helped get them in.

Two years ago, Yarmouk had over 200,000 residents, but now they are down to less than 18,000. The neighborhood has been under siege by pro-Assad’s troops for the past two years. The PLO and other ‘Palestinian’ factions were among the first to flee in 2013.

Islamic State said they came in to liberate the residents from Assad’s siege.

On Friday, the Palestinian Authority/PLO has made it clear they have absolutely no intention of helping their compatriots militarily, contradicting an AP report quoting the PLO envoy to Damascus, Ahmad Majdalani, who said the PLO would join sides with the Syrian government to expel Da’esh from the Yarmouk neighborhood.

The PLO says it refuses “to be drawn into any armed campaign.” The Palestinian Authority has been undecided as to which side it should support in the Syrian civil war.

According to Al Jazeera,

Wasel Abu Yousef, a senior PLO official based in the West Bank town of Ramallah, said Friday that negotiating safe passage for Yarmouk’s besieged residents and for humanitarian supplies is preferable to military action.

Of course, since Jordan, Lebanon, and Turkey are refusing to allow most ‘Palestinian’ refugees to enter their countries, it’s not clear where the safe passage would actually take them, except outside the latest immediate battle zone.

Left-wing groups in Israel have launched a new campaign to flood Israel with tens (hundreds?) of thousands of Yarmouk “Palestinian refugees” for “humanitarian” reasons, since their fellow Arabs and Muslims refuse to help them and grant them refuge.

Left-wing ideologues are trying to use the Yarmouk crisis to radically change the demographics of Judea and Samaria, while saying that Israel should ignore the political consequences of such an action.

In the Jerusalem Post, Gershon Baskin writes, “This is not the time to score political points… Israel should announce immediately its willingness to have those 18,000 remaining residents of Yarmouk come to the West Bank.”

A Haaretz Editorial wrote, “Israel could offer Abbas the possibility of absorbing some of the refugees into the Palestinian Authority… Political considerations and disputes with the PA should be set aside at this time.”

Islamic State’s control of Yarmouk gives Da’esh a strong foothold in Damascus, which they haven’t had before.

For the Israeli far-Left, their “solution” to this crisis aligns perfectly with their ongoing political agenda to get rid of Israeli control over historic Judea and Samaria – some might say, almost cynically so.

ISIS Burns to Death 45 in Iraq, Vows to ‘Conquer Rome’

Wednesday, February 18th, 2015

Daesh (ISIS) terrorists from the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria have carried out another horrific mass execution, this time in Iraq — a follow-up to beheading 21 Egyptian Coptic Christians in Libya — and vowed to conquer Rome as well.

The video evidence was reportedly uploaded Tuesday, showing Daesh terrorists burning alive 45 people in the western Iraqi town of al-Baghdadi. The identity of the victims was not known, although it is believed that some were security officers.

On Friday, a media group linked to Daesh released a four-minute video titled “Peshmerga Captives in Kirkuk Province,” purportedly showing Kurdish captives in iron cages being driven around on trucks in Iraq, according to the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI).

Last week Daesh captured the town, located in Anbar province, about five miles away from a U.S. air force base. There are 320 U.S. Marines stationed at the nearby Ain al-Asad air base, training members of the Iraqi Army’s 7th Division.

The base also was attacked this past Friday by Daesh fighters, but the terror group failed in their attempt to capture the site.

Meanwhile, Italy – specifically, Rome – has raised its alert and its security following the slaughter of 21 Egyptian Coptic Christians by Daesh last weekend on a Mediterranean seaside in Libya. The Libyan government followed up the massacre with a 24-hour deadline for all Egyptian Christians to leave the country.

A specific threat against the ancient city was also made by the terrorist organization, which vowed to conquer Rome in a video released on Sunday showing the mass execution of the Christian victims in Libya.

“And we will conquer Rome, by Allah’s permission, the promise of our prophet, peace be upon him,” the terror leader said in the Libyan execution video on Sunday.

According to the Breitbart news website, Gaza’s ruling Hamas terror organization has warned Italy not to get involved in Libya under “the pretext of fighting terrorism.” Hamas spokesperson Salah al-Bardawil said such a move would be taken as “a new Crusade against Arab and Muslim countries.”

Is this a sign the Muslim Brotherhood-spawned Hamas group has begun to align with Daesh?
