Policeman Who Brutally Attacked Amona Protester Gets Slap on the Wrist

Monday, July 20th, 2015

A Jerusalem court handed down a sentence of six months of community service, without a jail sentence, to a policeman convicted of a brutal beating of a protester during the expulsion of residents of Amona in 2006.

Even the judge, Moti Polik, criticized the prosecution for not demanding a harsher sentence for the policemen Moti Mahagar.

IT took nine years before Israel’s screwy judicial system finally handed down the sentence, a year after the conviction and nine years after the crime.

Mahagar would not have been indicted if it weren’t for a video that showed him relentlessly using a club to beat victims entrenched in buildings during the expulsion in Samaria.

Oh yes, Mahagar also was scalped with a fine, a grand total of $7819.53 (30,000 shekels), according to today’s official exchange rate.

IDF Reservists Patrol Hitchhiking Spots to Prevent Kidnappings

Wednesday, July 15th, 2015

The IDF has decided to implement a new practice to improve the security of hitchhikers in Judea and Samaria — one year after three hitchhiking Israeli teens were abducted and murdered.

Yisrael HaYom reported that the IDF will be sending reservists in civilian vehicles to provide security for hitchhikers in the territories. The cars will travel past popular hitchhiking spots each afternoon and into the night, observing the roads and looking out for suspicious sights.

The timing of the program coincides with summer vacation, when youngsters are more likely to be looking for rides, as well as with the recent rise in terrorist activity in Judea and Samaria and Jerusalem.

It also comes at a time when intelligence authorities have received several reports of plots to carry out another kidnapping. Har Hebron Regional Council head Yochai Damri had approached the commander of the Judea Brigade to ask for increased security due to a lack of public transport.

“Telling our children not to hitchhike does not work,” Damri said.

Hamas Rallies in Gaza to Protest PA Arrests in Judea, Samaria

Wednesday, July 8th, 2015

Hamas has accused the Fatah-led Palestinian Authority of caving to Israel after PA security personnel arrested hundreds of terrorists in Judea and Samaria.

“Power and occupation are two sides of the same coin. Stop betrayal,” read banners waved by protesters at a rally organized Tuesday by Gaza’s ruling Hamas terrorist group. “Political arrests and power are a stigma on the forehead of its president.”

The rally was organized to protest the security sweep conducted by Palestinian Authority security officials throughout Judea and Samaria over the past several weeks.

Mushir al-Masri, an organizer of the rally, said the arrests were a failed attempt by PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas to “eliminate the resistance.”

He warned the campaign of political arrests and security coordination “with the occupation” signaled a “blow to reconciliation efforts” in the ongoing but largely fruitless move to create a so-called “unity government” between the two factions.

Since the beginning of June, more than 200 members of Hamas have been arrested in Judea and Samaria, according to the Gaza-based terror group.

In addition, at least 40 Hamas operatives were arrested by the Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) earlier this month in a separate sting that foiled an attempt to set up a parallel shadow government aimed at toppling the Ramallah-based PA government led by Abbas’s Fatah faction.

BDS Trying to Stop Bon Jovi from Performing in Israel

Tuesday, July 7th, 2015

The “Palestinian Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel (PACBI)” is petitioning anti-Zionists to sign up in a bid to force the rock group Bon Jovi from performing for the first time in Israel.

The petition states:

World renowned band, Bon Jovi, is scheduled to perform in Israel on October 3rd. We ask the members of the band, Jon Bon Jovi, David Bryan, and Tico Torres, to reconsider their concert in apartheid Israel, until Israel complies with international law and respects the rights of the indigenous Palestinian people.

Israel’s crimes against the Palestinian people have caused enormous despair, death, injury, and displacement, to millions of people.

The boycott group also warned that Israeli company producing the show also has clients such as Motorola whose “crime” is that it provides Internet access on the Tel Aviv-Jerusalem train that will pass through a small area in Samaria. In the petition’s language, the “train which cuts through stolen Palestinian village land in the occupied West Bank.”

Equally “worse,” according to PACBI, the production company also does business with Hewlett-Packard, which provides biometric control systems at checkpoints.

The attempt to stop the rock group is on the road to another failure. Bon Jovi’s producer in Israel told the group , “Bon Jovi couldn’t care less.”

This question has been asked thousands of times, but it still needs to be presented: Why doesn’t PACBI and other boycott groups stop using computers made with chips at Intel, whose employees include people living in Judea and Samaria?

Police Crack Israel-Palestinian Authority Egg-Smuggling Ring

Monday, July 6th, 2015

Police closed in on a ring of Israeli and Palestinian Authority Arabs who smuggled eggs and sold to supermarkets in urban centers in Israel.

The gang raked in more than $2.5 million a year in the operation that stamped the eggs with forged approval. Police investigator Shai Kovnator noted, “The phenomenon of smuggling eggs from Palestinian Authority to Israel endangers human life.

“These are criminals who will stop at nothing to make money at the expense of the health of the public in Israel.”

Terror Victim Malachi Moshe Rosenfeld Laid to Rest

Wednesday, July 1st, 2015

Malachi Moshe Rosenfeld, 26, was buried in Kochav HaShachar in Samaria early Wednesday afternoon after he succumbed last night to bullet wounds from Palestinian Authority terrorists.

Bayit Yehudi (Jewish Home) chairman and Minister of Education Naftali Bennett was among hundreds of people at the funeral.

He called Rosenfeld “a symbol of the State of Israel, which salutes you.” Bennett quoted Psalms 18:37 to say, ” I have pursued my enemies and overtaken them, never turning back until they were consumed.”

Kochav HaShachar Rabbi Ohad Krakover called on the government to respond to the terrorist attack be strengthening a Jewish presence in Judea and Samaria. The murder of Rosenfeld was the third loss in the family. His older brother Naftali, an Air Force pilot, died in 2002 in an accident, and his uncle was killed while he was in the army in 1978.

Malachi’s father Eliezer is widely known as a clarinet player who performs at weddings.
He cried at the funeral, “What did we do wrong?
