Man Shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’ Shot Outside Israel’s Embassy in Turkey [video]

Wednesday, September 21st, 2016

A man brandishing a knife and shouting “Allahu Akbar” was shot by police as he was storming the Israeli embassy in Ankara, Turkey Wednesday afternoon, an Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman and Turkish police said in a statement. Turkish police told Reuters that the attacker shouted “Allahu Akbar” as he was rushing the embassy before being shot in the leg.

“The staff is safe,” said the statement, “The attacker was wounded before he reached the embassy. The assailant was shot and wounded by a local security man.”

The area outside the embassy was cordoned off and Police examined the bag the attacker was carrying and it either did not contain explosives, or the explosives were not activated, according to Reuters.

CNN’s Turkish channel reported the man had attempted to stab embassy personnel before being shot in the leg, and appeared mentally unstable. Turkish NTV reported two assailants had tried to storm the embassy.

UN Halting Humanitarian Aid Following Air Attack on Aleppo Convoy [video]

Tuesday, September 20th, 2016

The UN has announced on Tuesday that it is suspending all aid convoys across Syria, following an air attack on relief trucks near Aleppo that killed a Syrian Arab Red Crescent staff member and about 20 civilians, and destroyed a warehouse and hospital.

UN humanitarian aid spokesman Jens Laerke told reporters in Geneva that “as an immediate security measure, other convoy movements in Syria have been suspended for the time being pending further assessment of the security situation.” But he added that the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) remains “committed to stay and deliver to everybody in need in Syria.”

Local war monitors are blaming either the Syrians or the Russians for the strike against the aid convoy near Aleppo on Monday, which came after the Syrians had declared an end to the week-long ceasefire.

The attack may have been done in retaliation for last Saturday’s airstrikes by US planes against Syrian regime forces who had been under siege by ISIS in the town of Deir ez-Zor. At least 62 Syrian servicemen were killed and more than 100 wounded in what the Americans described as a mistake.

Igor Konashenkov, an official spokesman for the Russian defense ministry said on Tuesday that “no airstrikes on the UN humanitarian convoy in the southwestern outskirts of Aleppo were carried out by the Russian or Syrian forces.”

“The Russian side did not monitor the movement of the UN truck convoy that came under attack near Aleppo after the humanitarian cargo was delivered to that city,” he added.

“If this callous attack is found to be a deliberate targeting of humanitarians, it would amount to a war crime,” UN aid chief Stephen O’Brien said in a statement. He noted that the Syrian government had given the humanitarian convoy permission to move into Aleppo shortly before the attack.

Peter Maurer, president of the ICRC, released a statement saying “yesterday’s attack is a flagrant violation of international humanitarian law and it is unacceptable. Failing to protect humanitarian workers and structures might have serious repercussions on ongoing humanitarian work in the country, hence depriving millions of people of aid essential to their survival.”


Pipe Bomb Explodes in Elizabeth, NJ [video]

Monday, September 19th, 2016

A device exploded before 1 AM Monday while the package it was in was being examined by a bomb squad robot. near an Elizabeth, NJ transit station, according to Elizabeth Mayor Christian J. Bollwage, who explained the robot was “cutting into the device when it exploded.” The mayor noted it was “an explosive device” with an estimated five explosives. He suggested that “based on the loudness, I think people could have been severely hurt or injured if they had been in the vicinity.”

According to the Mayor, two men discovered the package in a waste basket on North Broad Street and Julian Place around 9:30 PM. He said they took the package “because they thought it was of some value,” but when they spotted wires and a pipe inside, they notified Police. The Union County Bomb Squad was alerted and brought its bomb handling robot. “The drone indicated it could be suspicious and it could be a live bomb,” Bollwage said.

The FBI and NJ State Police are on the scene.

IDF Cites Incitement, Arab Video Displays Pallywood ‘Bull’ in Full [video]

Sunday, September 18th, 2016

The IDF Spokesperson’s Office has put together a video tweet bluntly pointing out that Arab terrorists in the Palestinian Authority carried out four attacks against Israeli soldiers this past weekend, all due to government-sponsored incitement. (There were more, but production does take time, etc…)

The fact is, the IDF is extraordinarily tolerant in its verbal response to terrorist attacks on social media; one sees little or no saber-rattling from the Israeli military, be it in English, Hebrew or even Arabic. Scan the social media sites and in general, one sees pictures of sunrises and sunsets, with teenage soldiers barely out of high school framed against the sky. Sometimes a photo of boys putting combat black on the cheeks of girls, and the girls putting combat green on the foreheads of their male counterparts. Occasionally a photo of the soldiers completing their beret march — or, more grim and to the point, one of older and more experienced soldiers on night duty having to track down and arrest fugitives who have carried out terrorist activities, sometimes successfully.

But here’s a perfect example of the kind of incitement that prompts the next generation of Arab teens to become young terrorists — and inspired the above complaint from the IDF.

This video was posted on Twitter right under the tweet from the IDF Spokesperson Sunday evening. It shows a young Arab boy who appears to be caught between his desperate father trying to rescue him from an attack by a vicious Israeli soldier and his fierce, slobbering military K-9 partner, an IDF dog tugging at the other side.

It would be almost credible, except Israeli soldiers don’t yell, even in Hebrew, “Who’s afraid, who!!??” as if to teach someone NOT to be afraid. Secondly, look closely at the canine actor. What is the dog wearing — or rather, not wearing?

The dog in this video is not wearing the official IDF muzzle and body gear, or headgear of any kind, any kind of body gear. IDF K-9 fighters are in uniform as are their human partners. And they have metal muzzles to protect them, as well as those they must track down and ferret out.

Welcome to Pallywood, which stands for Hollywood of the Palestinian Authority. The acting can be quite realistic — but frankly, it’s all bull.

Israel Innovation Authority ‘Luring’ Academics, Entrepreneurs Back to Israel [video]

Thursday, September 15th, 2016

The Israel Innovation Authority’s program to return academics, in its effort to bring high quality human capital back to Israel, recently launched a new program intended to help Israeli entrepreneurs and academics abroad return to Israel and acclimate to Israel’s industry and academia. Called the “mentor program,” it brings together academics who wish to return to Israel with “mentors” – representatives of companies working with the Israel Innovation Authority and academics who returned to Israel over the years with the help of the program. The latter share from their own experience returning home and settling into the workforce and research environments.

According to Dr. Nurit Eyal, director of the program to return academics, “every year, hundreds from academia and industry return to Israel, fulfilling a desire to come back home and find employment appropriate to their education and skills. We help many return and contribute their know-how and skills to the Israeli economy and society. This has had a growing impact on Israel’s scientific leadership in the world.”

In addition to the guidance from mentors, the program also opened a Facebook group, entitled “Returning to Israel – a friend brings a friend to jobs in the industry,” intended to enable the community of veteran returnees to help recent arrivals find work, and to help the companies where they work absorb more high quality employees returning from abroad. This, in addition to the group “Returning to Israel – Questions and Answers,” that has been highly successful helping returnees with their day-to-day questions related to returning to Israel, is creating a community, and more.

The program to return academics also offers other benefits like personal guidance, help with job searches in conjunction with more than 340 companies and guidance in areas such as resume building, and career guidance workshops.
