Before Attack, Jerusalem Terrorist Cited ‘Third Intifada’ on Facebook

Saturday, October 3rd, 2015

A day before he set out to attack Israeli Jews in the Old City of Jerusalem, 19-year-old Muhnad Halabi apparently had already declared a “third intifada,” according to the Hebrew-language Ynet news site.

The young Jerusalem Arab terrorist attacked a Jewish family Saturday night as they were walking back from the Western Wall to the Lion’s Gate on HaGai Street.

“From what I can see, a third intifada has broken out. What is happening in Al Aqsa is what is happening in [all] our holy places and the way of our Prophet, and what is happening to the women of Al Aqsa is what is happening to our mothers and sisters.

“I don’t think the people will accept this humiliation. The people will rise up in an intifada,” he wrote.

Halabi murdered two people — including the 35-year-old father who he stabbed over and over, along with several others — before he grabbed the father’s gun and then shot family members and a group of tourists standing nearby.

He seriously wounded a 22-year-old mother and a 2-year-old toddler, who suffered a bullet wound to the leg.

Israeli Parents Shot to Death in Palestinian Terror Attack

Thursday, October 1st, 2015

Eitam Henkin, an officer in the elite Sayeret Matkal commando unit of the IDF, had no chance when a burst of gunfire slammed into his car from two different firearms on Thursday night. He and his wife Na’ama were killed within seconds before the horrified eyes of their four young children.

The lethal drive-by terror attack that killed the two Israeli parents took place shortly before 9 pm on the road between the Jewish communities of Itamar and Elon Moreh in Samaria, the IDF said.

At least two terrorists targeted the vehicle as the Henkins drove past the Arab village of Beit Furik. The couple, both in their thirties, lived with their children in the Jewish community of Neria, north of Ramallah, in Samaria.

Medics who arrived at the scene said they were forced to declare both the father and mother dead when they found no vital signs in either body. Both bore multiple gunshot wounds in the torso.

Military sources said bullets were found at the scene from two different firearms, a rifle and a handgun.

Their four children were rescued from the vehicle and taken to the Itamar Junction where they received initial treatment from Magen David Adom (MDA) medical personnel.

The 4-month-old baby, and four-year-old, seven-year-old and nine-year-old boys, were taken with light injuries to a nearby medical center for further treatment.

IDF Spokesman Lt.-Col. Peter Lerner said, “Gunshots fired at a civilian vehicle, slaughtered two parents in front of their children. The IDF is operating to pursue and locate those responsible for this ruthless, heinous barbaric attack.”

The route between the communities of Itamar and Elon Moreh was closed off for the time being, the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit added.

One of the first to arrive on the scene, MDA paramedic Boaz Malka said, “It was a very difficult scene. We saw a vehicle in the middle of the road, and a man in his thirties lying next to it with wounds in his upper torso. Inside the car sat a woman in her thirties, also with severe wounds to her upper torso. They were without any signs of life, and unfortunately we were forced to pronounce them dead on the spot.”

IDF soldiers fanned out across the area to search for the murderers.

The attack took place barely 24 hours after Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas announced from the podium of the United Nations General Assembly that his entity had renounced the internationally-recognized 1994 Oslo Accords.

Abbas declared the PA no longer considers itself obligated to meet its responsibilities under the agreement it signed with Israel at that time.

Education Minister and Bayit Yehudi party chairman Naftali Bennett issued a statement following the attack, saying the PA leader’s “call to arms was taken up tonight in Israel, and it is red with blood. A people whose leaders encourage murder will never have a state,” Bennett vowed, adding, “This must be made clear. Now the time of talking is done and the time for action has come.”

In the hour before the attack, Israel’s Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu stood before the UN General Assembly and slammed the incessant incitement and propaganda used by the Abbas government to whip up the Palestinian street.

Violent Palestinian Arab attacks on Israeli civilians and security personnel with a corresponding uptick in anti-Israel Palestinian Authority government incitement has escalated over the past several months, particularly over the past several weeks and especially since the start of the Jewish high holy days.

Baby, Mother Hurt by Stone-Throwing Palestinian Arabs Near Tekoa

Thursday, October 1st, 2015

Clashes broke out between IDF soldiers and Palestinian Arabs in a village near the eastern Gush Etzion Jewish community of Tekoa on Thursday afternoon.

The confrontation was allegedly triggered when the military security coordination in Tekoa fired into the air to warn off villagers who had begun hurling rocks at a vehicle belonging to one of the families from Tekoa.

Residents of Tekoa had traveled to the Arab village near their town to protest Palestinian Arab stone-throwing attacks that injured a woman and a six-month-old baby, and traumatized two other young children a few hours earlier. The father was uninjured.

Israeli motorists driving in two separate cars had come under attack (Thursday Oct. 1) by Palestinian Arab terrorists on the road near near the community, which is located close to the Herodian, site of the ancient tomb of King Herod.

Both drivers continued to navigate their vehicles until they reached the safety of Tekoa, where they were able to inspect the damage to their cars.

Medics from the Magen David Adom emergency response service provided first aid to the woman who sustained a leg wound, and the six-month-old baby who was cut by flying glass.

Two other young children were badly traumatized and required treatment for anxiety after the attack.

7 Palestinian Arabs Arrested in Temple Mount Violence

Tuesday, September 29th, 2015

Israel Police have arrested seven suspects in connection with Arab violence perpetrated at the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, according to spokesperson Luba Samri.

The arrests were made in connection with rioting on Monday, during the Jewish holiday of Sukkot. Palestinian Arabs at the site threw stones, firebombs (Molotov cocktails), firecrackers and other ammunition at police.

The Arabs hurled their ammunition from within their barricade inside the Al Aqsa mosque, which is located within the grounds of the Temple Mount compound.

Israeli Arab MK Jamal Zahalka joined Palestinian Arab demonstrators Tuesday morning at the Temple Mount, together with fellow Israeli Arab Mks Massoud Ghanayem and Abdel Hakim Hajj to further heat up protestor passions at the site.

Video footage filmed by the Hebrew-language NRG news site documented Zahalka’s attempt to block Jewish visitors from entering the grounds, and vicious curses and other remarks to the visitors and to the police who were protecting them.

As does every other Israeli parliamentarian, Zahalka and the other Mks who came to join the rioting against Jewish visitors and Israeli police officers on the Temple Mount, are supported by Israeli tax money.

Under the current laws, no matter how or when they complete their terms of service, they will each receive generous severance payments and subsequently continue to receive liberal pensions for the rest of their lives.

Meanwhile, also on Tuesday, Jerusalem police arrested a 15-year-old terrorist-in-training after he was caught throwing stones at a bus.

Upon searching the teen police discovered the youth was also carrying brass knuckles and individual gas cylinders. Individual gas cylinders are often used as fuel for firebombs (Molotov cocktails) and sometimes for other types of improvised explosive devices, or IEDs.

The young terror suspect was taken to a police station for questioning.

Saturday, September 26th, 2015

The Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) announced Saturday night that four Israeli Arab minors have been arrested in connection with the Rosh Hashana terror attack that killed Jerusalemite Alexander Levlovitz.

The four Arab teens are accused of hurling rocks at Levlovitz’s car as he drove in the Arnona neighborhood in southern Jerusalem, causing him to lose control of the vehicle.

After intensive intelligence gathering, the investigation by the Shin Bet led to the arrest of the following four Israeli Arab teens:

Muhamad Salah Muhamad, age 18 Walid Faras Mustafa, age 18 Abed Muchamad Abed Rabu Daviat, 19

An additional suspect is a minor and his name may not be released due to his age.
