Israeli Border Guard Police officers check drivers on their way out of the Jerusalem Arab neighborhood of Jabel Mukabar.

A bomb-sniffing dog is the hero of the hour after he personally foiled a probable terror attack in Jerusalem or elsewhere in the country.

The dog “sniffed out” a knife hidden beneath a seat on a bus that traveled from the northern Jerusalem Arab neighborhood of Shuafat.


The dog was brought on board to search the bus after the passengers were asked to disembark at a security checkpoint, Israel Police reported.

The knife was found under a seat, carefully wrapped in netting and a sock, that was occupied by a 24-year-old man who was traveling with a baby.

The man was transferred to security personnel for questioning. The baby was returned to his family.

  1. I have been contemplating how to deal with the rise of individualized terror attacks against Jews in Israel. Shooting will stop the individual, but not the impetus. Islam is a Death Cult and becoming shaheed is a desired end, not a feared outcome. it is why the Cold War Nuclear philosophy of Mutually Assured Destruction in an impotent philosophy against Iran. Death is welcome to them.

    Preaching will not work. One of the key tenets of Islam is that Islam is superior to all other philosophies and no other philosophy has anything to offer Islam. It is why missionaries, blasphemers, apostates, and infidels are executed. Islam holds the non-believer is less than a true human and; like Ann Coulter’s belief towards Jews, believe the only hope for these less than true humans is to be perfected by conversion to their One True Way.

    So the answer is to find a deterrent within Islam.

    In Islam it is mandatory that the dead be carried to the burial site and mandatory fellow Muslims follow. Such an act is said to carry great rewards, and is why Islamic funerals are so big. The dead did not know them: they are Reward Parasites hoping to gain favour by the act.

    “Whoever attends the funeral from the house until the funeral prayer is offered will have one qeeraat, and whoever attends the funeral until the deceased is buried will have two qeeraats.” al-Janaa’iz, CE 1240 by al-Bukhaari

    In addition, Muslims should not be buried with Infidels, nor Infidels with Muslims. The Muslim should be buried in the Muslim graveyard. The Sunnah is to put the deceased into the grave from the end, then he should be turned onto his right side in the grave, with his face facing towards the qiblah in Mecca. The one who puts him into the lahd should say,

    “Bismillaahi wa ‘ala sunnat Rasool-Allaahi or ‘ala millat Rasool-Allaahi “peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him” “In the name of Allaah and according to the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allaah or according to the religion of the Messenger of Allah”
    Saheeh Sunan Abi Dawood, CE 836 by al-Albaani

    It is mustahabb for those who are at the grave to throw handfuls of earth, three handfuls scooped up in both hands, after the lahd has been sealed. Finally the grave itself is required to be raised about four inches higher that the surrounding area. This is to insure everyone knows it is a grave site.

    And herein lies the deterrent I would suggest. Take a lesson from the U.S. Navy Seals. Since Islam is a Death Cult and has very specific proscriptions and requirements regarding death, deny the dead their lionization, their reward. Yes. Shoot the terrorists, then take to bodies to sea on an Israeli Navy ship and give them a Chevra Kadisha burial at sea. Destroy their reward, destroy the chance of gaining qeeraats in the eyes of Allah, place them in a grave where they are certainly buried with Infidels dating back to the Phoenicians, Greek and Roman sailors in a grave guaranteeing they do not face Mecca. Deny them the reward they so desperately seek as shaheed. Deny thier family, their friends, their community, qeeraat.

    Qeeraat- a recitation of the Koran
    Sunnah- holy deed or action of the Prophet Mohammad
    Mustahabb- a suggested but not required religious action.
    Lahd- burial niche
