It apparently was a “quiet” Yom Kippur for Israel’s establishment media because no Jews were seriously injured.

That is the only way to explain reports that Yom Kippur was “relatively quiet,” as termed by Reshet Bet (Voice of Israel) radio, despite at least 24 rock-throwing and firebomb attacks on soldiers and Jewish civilians.


After the holiday ended, the IDF reported that combat soldiers manning a post in the Jordan Valley foiled an attempted attack by a Palestinian Authority terrorist who was carrying an explosive device.

The soldiers arrested him when he approached their guard position, and no one was injured

During the day, Jerusalem Arabs missed their target in a firebombing attack on a Jewish home in the mixed Jewish-Arab Abu Tur neighborhood of Jerusalem.

More than 200 Palestinian Authority terrorists rioted near Hebron and threw rocks at police, and a firebomb was hurled at a Jewish home in Hebron.

Rock-throwing attacks also were reported in Har Homa, a large Jewish neighborhood at the southern edge of Jerusalem.

No injuries or serious property damage was reported, so for the media that are not concerned if Jews are targets of terrorists but not wounded or killed, it was a quiet day.

  1. Cody, A better idea has been around since 1967. Repatriate them back to Jordan & Egypt. It would be as effective, but would contain the compassionate element that would make it more possible, though the possibility is next to nothing. Israel's cowed, ignoneral population is incapable of doing anyrant gething but getting attacked daily, as they have been since their inception. They're suicidal and care more about the power of imaginary public opinion than being attacked daily.

  2. So, for their firebombing at Jews over the most sacred day on the Jewish calendar, they lost approx 700 at Mecca, when will people realise that to start with Jews, there will always be reprisal, it might not be immediately but as one says, the wheels of Gd grind slowly – just look at Germany with its influx of Syrians, tearing up the place – also the fact that VW has lost billions of dollars in stealthily disguising fumes for the unsuspecting and this is just too similar with that of 70 years ago – same meat, different gravy…
