IDF Helicopter Saves Palestinian Authority Baby after Heart Attack

Saturday, December 27th, 2014

An IDF helicopter evacuated a six-month-old baby to Hadassah Hospital in Jerusalem Saturday morning after the child suffered an apparent heart attack while on the way to Jordan for medical care.

Israeli border officials saw the baby collapse and called paramedics, who in turn sent an urgent call for a military helicopter.

Magen David medics arrived at the scene and, along with IDF doctors, resuscitated the child, but the medical staff decided he needed to be flown to a hospital immediately.

Transportation was coordinated with the IDF’s COGAT (Coordination of Government Activities in the Territories) unit, and the baby now is under care at Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital.

We would like to presume that the family is appreciative of Israel’s efforts.

 

IDF Captures Palestinian Authority Terrorists Who Firebombed 11-Year-Old [video]

Saturday, December 27th, 2014

Soldiers of the elite Duvdevan unit captured the Palestinian Authority terrorists who firebombed the car in which 11-year-old Ayala Shapira was riding Thursday night.

Her condition has improved slightly but she still is in critical condition. Her father, who was driving, was lightly inured when the terrorists hurled the Molotov cocktail at their car near their outpost community of El Matan, located between Maaleh Shomron and Ginot Shomron in Samaria.

The arrest of the terrorists was reported here on Friday, but gag order on details of the arrest was lifted Saturday night. The IDF, working on intelligence information provided by the Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet), arrested two terrorists, one of them around 16 years old, shortly after the attack.

The terrorists are from the village of Azun, from where terrorists have carried out hundreds, and perhaps thousands, of rifle, rock-throwing and firebomb attacks on Jews driving on the main highway between Kfar Saba, on the northern edge of metropolitan Tel Aviv, and Jewish communities in central Samaria.

The terrorists confessed to the attempted murders of Ayala and her father.

They armed themselves with firebombs, waited on the side of the road and lit and threw the weapon when they saw the Shapira vehicle advancing.

They fled back to Azun and were arrested the same night following intense efforts by intelligence units.

‘Slight Improvement’ in Life-threatening Condition of Firebomb Victim

Friday, December 26th, 2014

Doctors at Sheba Hospital in Tel Aviv said Friday morning that there is a “slight improvement” in the condition of 11-year-old Ayala Shapira, who still is fighting for her life after a Palestinian Authority terrorist set on fire the car in which she and her father were riding last night.

They live in the El Matan outpost, adjacent to Maaleh Shomron, which is part of the Maaleh-Ginot-Karnei Shomron communities between Kfar Saba and Kedumim.

Her father escaped the burning vehicle with light burn wounds. Ayala suffered burns over 30-40 percent of her body, mostly in the upper parts and in the face.

Last month, Ayala’s mother Ruth was targeted in a similar Molotov cocktail attack in the same spot of last night’s attack. Her car was destroyed but she was not injured.

The girl’s father Avner told Yediot Acharonot that he saw the terrorists lighting the firebomb and throwing it.

“I shouted to my daughter to get out and she was able to do so,” he said. “We were able by the grace of God to get out of the car, but she was much more seriously wounded than I was. We hope that the hospital staff will be able to return her to her previous state.”

Ruth Shapira told the Israeli newspaper, “Ayala is a very special girl. She is an exceptionally smart child, who was on her way home from a program for youth gifted in mathematics at the Bar-Ilan University. “

Police said that Ayala almost certainly would have been dead if she had not rolled herself on the ground to extinguish the flames on her burning body.

As usual after a terrorist attack, the army sent a large number of soldiers to search for the attacker, who still is at large.

The nearby highway 55, the only direct road connecting Kfar Saba with Jewish communities in the area, has been the scene of hundreds of attempts to kill Jews with rocks, firebombs and guns. The army occasionally deploys several patrols simultaneously on the road.

And how does the pro-Palestinian Authority crowd understand the attack.

The Bethlehem-based Ma’an News Agency told its English-speaking readers, who include foreign media, a blanket lie.

“Maaleh Shomron is part of a larger settlement bloc…surrounding a number of Palestinian villages on at least three sides and preventing Palestinians from freely moving in the area,” it wrote.

As usual, the opposite is true.

There are far more Arab villages than there are Jewish communities, and the only ”preventing” to moving freely comes from Palestinian Authority terrorists who constantly try to murder Jews.

 

Arabs Imitate Ancient Greeks and Vandalize Joseph’s Tomb

Monday, December 22nd, 2014

More than 1,000 Jews visiting Joseph’s Tomb (Kever Yosef) in Shechem Sunday night discovered that Palestinian Authority Arabs vandalized the holy site for the umpteenth time.

The vandals destroyed the electric system, but the Jews, under IDF protection, lit a menorah on the sixth night of Hanukkah, which commemorates the victory of the Maccabeans over the Greek conquerors who desecrated the Holy Temple nearly 2000 years ago.

Israel surrendered open access to Joseph’s Tomb in 2001 after a terrorist attack, allowing a violation of the Oslo Accords protecting the rights of all religions to visit holy sites to become an accepted principle.

Leftists and plain President Obama-Arabs read the news differently.

The “Alternative News. Org” website reported, “1,000 Israelis raided the northern West Bank area of Nablus [Shechem] Sunday night to pray at Joseph’s Tomb, located on the outskirts of the city….

“Joseph’s Tomb is located in Area A of the West Bank, under full security and administrative control of the Palestinian Authority (PA). Although entry into Joseph’s Tomb requires permission and coordination with the PA, the Israeli civilians and troops entered without either.”

Every time a Jew visits the Temple Mount or Joseph’s Tomb, and soon the Dead Sea can be added to the list, it is a “raid.”

As for the report that they entered without permission, the IDF told The Jewish Press Monday morning that simply is not true. “There was coordination,” a spokeswoman said.

Alternative News also conveniently omitted the wording of the Oslo Accords that specifically reserves the rights of Jews to visit Joseph’s Tomb, among others, and requires “both sides shall respect and protect the listed below religious rights of Jews, Christians, Moslems and Samaritans.”

Rock-Throwing Terrorists Hit 4-Year-old Boy at Gush Etzion

Sunday, December 21st, 2014

Palestinian Authority terrorists targeted Gush Etzion Sunday morning and lightly wounded a four-year-old boy, who was treated by Hatzalah medics.

Soldiers are looking for the culprits.

The attack occurred at the junction of Highway 60 with Jewish communities in Gush Etzion, which has become a popular target for Palestinian Authority Arabs trying to murder Jews.

In the last two months, they have killed one woman and wounded several people with different means of trying to kill them – knives, guns, rocks, firebombs, and hit-and-run driving.

 

 

UN Security Council May Jilt Palestinian Authority

Tuesday, December 16th, 2014

The Palestinian Authority has not yet secured the nine votes needed to approve a United Nations Security Council resolution setting a deadline for Israel to expel 10 percent of its population from parts of Jerusalem and all of Judea and Samaria.

Senior Palestinian official Saeb Erekat told a Nazareth-based radio station Monday that Palestinians have yet to secure a two-thirds majority of the council.

The proposal, which calls for Israel to shrink to less than half its current size is supposed to come before the Security Council Wednesday, where majority approval could force the United States into the uncomfortable decision of deciding whether or not to veto the resolution.

Several European nations are formulating an alternate proposal calling for the establishment of the Palestinian Authority as a country through negotiations within two years.

On the other hand, PA delegate to the United Nations Riad Monsor said negotiations  are “history.”

The Palestinian Authority may have outsmarted itself.

It cannot save face by backing down from going to the United Nations unless  U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry comes up some fancy semantics that can take PA chairman Mahmoud Abbas off from a weak and long limb on a tall tree.

Mansour insisted Tuesday, “Tomorrow, it is almost certain that a draft will be put into blue ink ,meaning a resolution will be put on the table of the Security Council.

That will get the Palestinian Authority off the hook with the Arab world that wants to see if it can finally go all the way and in effect tell the United States to take a long walk on a short pier.

But the Security Council is not going to vote on any resolution right away, and, in fact, it does not have to vote on it at all.

If Abbas does not come up with  enough support on the Council when the chips are down, he might be very happy to let Kerry save him for embarrassment and agree to some sort of cockeyed double-talk that makes as much sense as the entire “peace process.”

The Palestinian Authority may will have  a better chance of securing the needed two-thirds majority on January 1, when Venezuela and Malaysia will be new rotating members of the U.N. Security Council. On the other hand Jordan and Chile will leave the Council.

Arabs Riot after IDF Kills Terrorist Throwing Bomb at Soldiers

Tuesday, December 16th, 2014

Palestinian Authority Arab riots are attacking Israeli police and soldiers at the Kalandia, between Ramallah and Jerusalem, Tuesday morning in protest of the death of an Arab rioter in the same areas last night when the IDF tried to arrest a suspected weapons dealer.

Soldiers entered Kalandia at night to arrest the man and were met with dozens of rioters. When one of them threw an explosive device at the soldiers, they fired back and killed the attacker.

The Arab version is that the man was shot in cold blood and simply was sitting on the roof of his house watching the action.

The Palestinian Authority has damaged itself over the years with a severe credibility gap that firing media no longer can ignore since Hamas was caught red-handed time after time lying to them during the war in Gaza last summer.

The Palestinian Authority made matters worse for itself the past few weeks by claiming that two men were murdered even though autopsy reports, issued by Arab and Jewish doctors, proved otherwise.

The first case was a Jerusalem Arab bus driver who hanged himself. The PA version is that “settlers” murdered him.

The second case was last week when an autopsy showed that a Palestinian Authority minister, suffering from heart disease and high blood pressure, died from a heart attack brought on by stress during a clash with Israeli soldiers. Tear gas that was fired to disperse the rioters contributed to the stress.

Now comes the claim that soldiers, confronting dozens of Arabs going wild and throwing everything but the kitchen at them, decided to turn their attention to a supposed peaceful Arab who was bored and went on the roof to watch the riot.
