Highway 443 is the old Tel Aviv-Jerusalem highway, which runs partly through Samaria.

Nasim Yousef Gomhour, 19, is a resident of Beit Anan, a suburb of the Palestinian Authority capital of Ramallah, in Samaria. Gomhour arrived at the Ofer checkpoint from west of Beit Horon, according to a report by Israel’s Channel 10 news, and asked the soldiers for some water.

When the soldier turned to get him the water, Gomhour pulled a knife and stabbed him. Other soldiers on the scene shot the attacker.

The wounded soldier was rushed by military vehicle to a nearby hospital. According to a subsequent report by the Hebrew-language Ynet website, the stabber told investigators he had decided to stab an Israeli soldier after he had been struck by his father in an argument.

The second stabbing occurred during a routine security check at the Beita junction near the Huwara checkpoint.

A Palestinian Authority Arab pulled out a knife and stabbed a Border Guard Police officer in the back.

Security personnel immediately opened fire and shot the attacker, later identified by the Bethlehem-based Ma’an news agency as Rafik Kamal al-Taj.

The wounded officer was treated at the scene before being taken to the hospital, according to a statement by the Border Police spokesperson. The injured terrorist was critically injured and later died of his wounds.

On Friday night, a gas station located on Highway 60 near the Samaria Jewish community of Eli was set ablaze by unknown arsonists who managed to escape detection. No arrests have been made.

  4. William Thomas Poirier: If you, a U.S. citizen, wanted to cross from NY in to Canada, you would be subject to a stop, passport (ID) check, vehicle inspection, questioned on the nature of your visit – all by armed Canadian border patrol as you ARE NOT A CANADIAN CITIZEN. The same would happen if you drove or walked in to Mexico (but with armed Mexican border authorities) because you ARE NOT A CITIZEN OF MEXICO.
    And guess what? That happens in EVERY COUNTRY IN THE WORLD.

    “Palestinian” Arabs ARE NOT ISRAELI CITIZENS (though they were given a choice to be, but rejected it, unlike those who are now Israeli Arabs), and therefore are subject to LAWFUL security checkpoints upon wanting to enter sovereign Israeli land.

    I lived there during the second intifada, BEFORE the checkpoints and security fences became necessary due to a violent rise in terrorist attacks – such as suicide bombings of buses, hotels, and cafés full of TOURISTS as well as Israelis (including a WEDDING), mass shootings of civilians at bus stops, car bombs, Molotov cocktails, and kidnappings (try googling the Sabarro bombing, or the December 1, 2001 suicide bombings AND car bombs in downtown Jerusalem – and before you say “lies and propaganda”, I was fortunate to survive 2 of the attacks mentioned above, AND could hear the celebrations going on in Ramallah on 9/11 – CELEBRATING THE TERRORIST ATTACK ON THE U.S. – from my friend’s apartment).

    As to the difference between the Israeli gay pride parade stabber and the “Palestinian” stabber this weekend:
    The Israeli stabber is mentally ill, and was focused on continuing as opposed to getting away, and they were able to catch him quickly; the “Palestinians” stab and run – should they have let him go so he could stab more people later??? Maybe you would have thought it more “fair” if they had caught him and stabbed him instead of shooting?

    If you choose to continue to believe the lies you’ve been fed, that’s your choice, and I feel sorry for you, but spreading your vile hatefilled garbage doesn’t help anyone (no, not even your Pally friends)

  6. So one can google the Occupied Territories,West bank,and Gaza and we get International law violations[edit]
    The establishment of Israeli settlements is held to constitute a transfer of Israel’s civilian population into the occupied territories and as such is illegal under the Fourth Geneva Convention.[105][106][107] This is disputed by other legal experts who argue with this interpretation of the law [108]

    In 2000, the editors of the Geneva Academy of International Humanitarian Law and Human Rights Palestine Yearbook of International Law (1998–1999) said “the “transfer, directly or indirectly, by the Occupying Power of parts of its own civilian population into the territory it occupies, or the deportation or transfer of all or parts of the population of the occupied territory within or outside this territory” amounts to a war crime. They hold that this is obviously applicable to Israeli settlement activities in the Occupied Arab Territories.”[109]

    In 2004 the International Court of Justice, in an advisory, non-binding[110] opinion, noted that the Security Council had described Israel’s policy and practices of settling parts of its population and new immigrants in the occupied territories as a “flagrant violation” of the Fourth Geneva Convention. The Court also concluded that the Israeli settlements in the Occupied Palestinian Territory (including East Jerusalem) have been established “in breach of international law” and that all the States parties to the Geneva Convention are under an obligation to ensure compliance by Israel with international law as embodied in the Convention.[101]

    In May 2012 the 27 ministers of foreign affairs of the European Union published a report strongly denouncing policies of the State of Israel in the West Bank and finding that settlements in the West Bank are illegal: “settlements remain illegal under international law, irrespective of recent decisions by the government of Israel. The EU reiterates that it will not recognize any changes to the pre-1967 borders including with regard to Jerusalem, other than those agreed by the parties.”[111] The report by all EU foreign ministers also criticized the Israeli government’s failure to dismantle settler outposts illegal even under domestic Israeli law.”[111]

    Israel denies that the Israeli settlements are in breach of any international laws.[112] The Israeli Supreme Court has yet to rule decisively on settlement legality under the Geneva Convention.[113]

    You breach International law and you the think others see what is happening ….and then feel others will not just this out rage

  8. Is William Thomas Poirrier,being paid by the Obama administration to harass Jew's? Why is this Jew hater wasting his time, reading the Jewish Press, unless he has an agenda to fulfill?
