Ramadan in Israel: Islamists murder female Border Police Officer

Not only have jihadis perpetrated this horror in Jerusalem, but now they will celebrate this murder.

Hadas Malka, 23-years old

“Border Policewoman murdered in Jerusalem terror attack,” by Elad Benari, Arutz Sheva, June 16, 2017:

Hadas Malka, a 23-year-old Border Police officer, was murdered in a combined shooting and stabbing attack in Jerusalem’s Old City on Friday evening.

Four other people were wounded, among them two moderately and one lightly.

The attack took place around 7:30 p.m. on Friday evening, when two terrorists armed with knives and rifles attacked people at Zedekiah’s Cave. They were neutralized by security forces.

A third terrorist stabbed Malka, who was stationed at the Damascus Gate. He, too, was neutralized by security forces.

Malka, who suffered critical injuries, was evacuated to the Hadassah Mount Scopus Hospital, where she later succumbed to her wounds.

The other victims were taken to the Shaarei Tzedek Hospital.

The area of the Damascus Gate has been repeatedly targeted by terrorists. Last month, a knife-wielding female Arab terrorist attacked officers who were deployed at the Damascus Gate.

Officers responded quickly to the attempted stabbing attack, neutralizing the terrorist before she was able to reach her intended target….

If Manchester jihadi had been Palestinian, his family would have been paid by Abbas

“And as you said this morning, Mr. President, funding and rewarding terrorism must end,” Netanyahu said. “Standing next to you, President Abbas condemned the horrific attack in Manchester. I hope this heralds a real change, because if the attacker had been Palestinian, and the victims had been Israeli children, the suicide bomber’s family would have received a stipend from the Palestinian Authority. That’s Palestinian law. That law must be changed.”

Yes, and more must be changed as well. It is in the Palestinian Authority charter to obliterate Israel; the aim of the PLO is the “liquidation of the Zionist presence.” As Abbas indicated less than two years ago:

“We welcome every drop of blood spilled in Jerusalem. This is pure blood, clean blood, blood on its way to Allah.”

Netanyahu and Trump’s noble hope of seeing the Palestinian law of paying terrorists changed would mean a complete shift in core perspective: the Palestinian Authority would have to give up Islam’s jihad doctrine, which Abbas would hardly be willing to do. Nonetheless, funding to the PA by American taxpayers should be cut off entirely unless and until they do change this law.

“Netanyahu Praises Trump Calling for End to Rewarding Terrorism, Demands Palestinians Change Terror Reward Law”, by David Rutz, Free Beacon, May 23, 2017:

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and President Donald Trump more indirectly, called on the Palestinian Authority Tuesday to cease its policy of paying terrorists who kill Israelis and supporting their families.

During remarks in the West Bank alongside Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas, the morning after a suicide bomber in England killed 22 people, Trump said violence should never be “tolerated, funded and even rewarded.”

“I was gratified that President Abbas joined the summit and committed to taking firm but necessary steps to fight terrorism and confront its hateful ideology,” Trump said……

Trump called for condemnation of such terror attacks in a “single, unified voice.”

Later on Tuesday, Netanyahu spoke before Trump at the Israel Museum and noted the statement Trump made while standing next to Abbas. While the terrorist in Manchester was condemned by Abbas, Netanyahu said, the suicide bomber’s family would have received money from the Palestinian Authority if the victims were Israelis.

“And as you said this morning, Mr. President, funding and rewarding terrorism must end,” Netanyahu said. “Standing next to you, President Abbas condemned the horrific attack in Manchester. I hope this heralds a real change, because if the attacker had been Palestinian, and the victims had been Israeli children, the suicide bomber’s family would have received a stipend from the Palestinian Authority. That’s Palestinian law. That law must be changed.”

The Washington Free Beacon reported last year that the Palestinian Authority pays terrorists and their families roughly $140 million a year, or about 10 percent of is annual budget. Official Palestinian media outlets have glorified the perpetrators of violent attacks on Israelis.

The Palestinian who killed U.S. Army veteran Taylor Force to death and wounded several others in March of 2016 was hailed on official media outlets as a “martyr.”

“We welcome every drop of blood spilled in Jerusalem. This is pure blood, clean blood, blood on its way to Allah,” Abbas said in September of 2015 on Palestinian television. “With the help of Allah, every martyr will be in heaven, and every wounded will get his reward.”

Christian Broadcasting Network docudrama ‘In Our Hands-The Battle for Jerusalem’ – a review

Last night, the eve of Yom Yerushalayim, Jerusalem Day in Israel , upwards of 400,000  people in 700+ theaters across America watched the engrossing, and at times emotionally charged, Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN) production of In Our Hands-The Battle for Jerusalem. Those of us  who were young adults in 1967, with  fear and anxiety were  glued to transistor radios waiting to  hear whether Israel would survive annihilation. Viewing this excellent factually based production with superb Israeli casting brought back memories of the miracles and sacrifices made by the heroic and valiant commanders,  soldiers, airmen and sailors of the T’zahal.

Mike Bates  and I had interviewed Shoshana Bryen , senior director of the Washington, D.C. – based Jewish Policy Center about the legacy of the June 1967 Six Day War that we published in the NER/Iconoclast.  She  discussed the significance of how the stunning victory against enormous odds transformed the Israel that we have come to know, today: happy, confident, a technological powerhouse with a global reach and democratic, with a small “d” ally of the US in the Middle East.

For those of us who have served in the military the camaraderie, heroic resolve and raw emotions of liberation and reunification of Jerusalem, the eternal capital of modern Israel,  depicted in the film gave it persuasive power.  The interaction between  Colonel Mordechai “Motta” Gur,  charismatic commander of the 55th Brigade and his intelligence officer, Arik Achmon, as well as  combat battalion and company commanders had the ring of truth. As an ex US Army Intelligence officer, I appreciated the scenes between Gur and Achmon when he dragooned the  later away from his  Economics studies at Hebrew University to ‘learn’ how to be his intelligence officer. Then there was the exchange when in preparation for the War, Gur  asked Achmon  to prepare a  battle plan for a jump  by the 2,000 strong brigade  into the Egyptian town of El Arish behind enemy lines.  Then , Gur informed Major Achmon that plans had been changed, and  in less than 10 hours he had to prepare for the critical Battle of Jerusalem.

In Our Hands deftly segues between dramatized exchanges like these and interviews with the Achmon, 71st battalion company commander Zamosh, the son of the 66 Battalion commander killed leading troopers in the ‘alley of death, battle,’ when they had lost their way and were confronted with Jordanian fighters. The depiction of the bloody battle of Ammunition Hill, reminiscent of WWI trench  warfare was realistically portrayed. The episode commentary  noted  that 39 IDF troopers and  71 Jordanian Legionaries  were killed  and many maimed and wounded  on the Israeli side. The surviving  troopers of the Ammunition Hill Battle in the film version are shown digging a mass grave for the Jordanian dead. Later there is the recollection of a meeting between a brigade  survivor and a Jordanian legionnaire commander at an occasion 45 years after the battle for Ammunition Hill when they could laugh and talk of peace.

In Our Hands depicts a dinner given by a Jewish family in Jerusalem on the eve of the battle that was most effective.  An 86 year old grandmother, a refugee from the Jewish Quarter  in the Old City overrun by Jordanian legionnaires brings out an Israeli flag that had been taken down when she and 1,600 others were forced to leave at the end of the siege.  She  gifted it to Zamosh with the hope  for returning  to fly from the Temple Mount.

One  Battle for Jerusalem episode depicts Gur confronted by IDF Chaplain Rabbi Goren who had driven by jeep from the front in El Arish in the Sinai running breathlessly carrying a torah and shofar to pray at the eventual  breakthrough at  the Temple Mount. Goren urges Gur not to wait for orders from General Uzi  Narkiss of the Central Command. Nevertheless, with Jerusalem surrounded on all sides there is a dramatized conference on the southern overlook involving fabled Gen. Moshe Dayan, IAF operations Commander Ezer Weizmann, General Narkis and Col. Gur when the decision is made, despite some trepidations. to enter the Old City.  In Our Hands shows archival color footage of the breach of Lions Gate and audio of the race to the Western Wall and Temple Mount, amidst sniper fire with Gur’s dramatic  radio transmission, “the Temple Mount is in our hands.”

Gur’s intrepid troopers find a ladder and scamper up with Zamosh’s gifted  Israel flag to fly it from the Dome of the Rock Mosque.  Minister of Defense, Dayan sees the act of reclaiming Jewish sovereignty and requests Gur by radio to have it taken down.  That act of Dayan redounds to this 50th Commemoration given the unresolved  matter of  Israel’s sovereignty over its eternal capital of Jerusalem.  The flag is then flown on the Temple Mount fence overlooking the Western Wall. The dramatized scene of two soldiers at the wall, one Orthodox, the other secular, the latter being  trained to pray the shema was most effective. Another touching scene was Gur breaking down when he asked Achmon to read the list of the 55th brigade fallen in the retaking of  Jerusalem. 55th brigade commander Gur eventually becomes IDF Chief of Staff and enters politics to serve in Israel’s Knesset. Tragically he took his own life after contracting terminal cancer at the age of 65.

Gordon Robertson, head of CBN and  producer of its Israel documentaries  of which , In Our Hands was the latest, is shown narrating a 10 minute afterward using scripture from Old and New Testaments about the Jewish heritage of Ha  Shem’s gift to his covenanted people of Jerusalem.  Robertson  addressed the attack on Israel’s legal and biblical claims to Jerusalem in UNSC 2334 passed in December 2016 with a 14 to 1 abstention by the former Obama  US Ambassador  to the UN,  Samantha Power. He notes the election of President Trump with  promises to recognize Israel’s sovereignty over Jerusalem and long delayed move of the US Embassy to Israel’s capital.  However,  following the President’s  first trip to Israel and dramatic pictures of him and his entourage  praying for the Peace of Jerusalem at the Kotel or Western Wall appears not in the cards in the foreseeable future.

We commend your reading and viewing  the video excerpts in Professor Miriam  Elman’s review published  Legal  Insurrection of the CBN production of In Our Hands-The Battle for Jerusalem. It sent an important message about the legacy  of the June Six Days War in 1967 portrayed vividly in the CBN docudrama emblazoned on every Hanukkah dreidel: Nes Gadol Hayah Sham – “a great miracle happened there”.

If you missed the one night showing of In our Hands reprise performances in selected theaters as well as the eventual sales of DVDs by CBN.

On day Abbas met Trump, Fatah honored 12 jihadis who murdered 95 people

Palestinian Woman: Promised Land is where Jews will be exterminated by ‘divine decree’

The fallacy and the fantasy of the “peace process” fiction writers and the two-staters continue to explode in the face of reality and the religious motive behind the jihad against the Jews.

“‘Promised Land’ = Land where Jews will be exterminated,” by Itamar Marcus, Palestinian Media Watch, April 12, 2017:

When Fatah-run Awdah TV asked Palestinians about their views regarding US President Donald Trump’s “rise to power”, one woman explained that “Jews” mistakenly understand the term “the Promised Land” as “a promise to them,” however, the real promise is that Allah will “gather” and “exterminate” them:

Fatah-run Awdah TV host: “Dear viewers, our question today is: Are you optimistic about the rise to power of American President Trump?”

Palestinian woman: “We always put our hopes in Allah. This is the promised land. The Jews think it is promised to them, but what was promised was to gather them in order to exterminate them by a divine decree.”

ISIS on Christian killing spree in Sinai

Sinai Christians have become a target for the Islamic State, which is now “waging an insurgency against the Egyptian government in Sinai” and “has turned to targeting Christian civilians after suffering setbacks in its confrontation with the army.”

On February 19, ISIS released a video threatening attacks on Christians as a follow-up to its December bombing of St. Mark’s Cathedral in Cairo, which killed 28 people. The video described Christians as “infidels” and enemies of Islam.

The video included a masked man who shouted the words: “Oh crusaders in Egypt, this attack that struck you in your temple is just the first with many more to come, God willing.”

Here we see the same propaganda about “crusaders” against Islam, when it was the Islamic Arab invaders who conquered Egypt by bloody force in the 7th century.

“I am not going to wait for death,” Rami Mina, who left Arish on Friday morning, said by telephone. “I shut down my restaurant and got out of there. These people are ruthless.”

Where are Western nations to help innocent, non-threatening Christian refugees who are being singled out for slaughter by the Islamic State?

“Egypt’s Christians flee Sinai amid Islamic State killing spree”, By Ahmed Aboulenein, Reuters, February 24, 2017:

Christian families and students fled Egypt’s North Sinai province in droves on Friday after Islamic State killed the seventh member of their community in just three weeks.

A Reuters reporter saw 25 families gathered with their belongings in the Suez Canal city of Ismailia’s Evangelical Church and church officials said 100 families, out of around 160 in North Sinai, were fleeing. More than 200 students studying in Arish, the province’s capital, have also left.

Seven Christians have been killed in Arish between Jan. 30 and Thursday. Islamic State, which is waging an insurgency there, claimed responsibility for the killings, five of which were shootings. One man was beheaded and another set on fire.

“I am not going to wait for death,” Rami Mina, who left Arish on Friday morning, said by telephone. “I shut down my restaurant and got out of there. These people are ruthless.”

Sectarian attacks occur often in Egypt but are usually confined to home burning, crop razing, attacks on churches, and forced displacement.

Arish residents said militants circulated death lists online and on the streets, warning Christians to leave or die.

“My father is the second name on their list; anyone Christian they put on the list” Munir Adel, a vegetable seller who fled on Friday, said as he huddled with four family members at the Evangelical Church, waiting for church officials to find them a place to stay.

Adel’s parents did not leave Arish because of their old age, he said. “They could be killed at any moment.”

VIDEO THREAT

Islamic State released a video on Sunday threatening Egypt’s Christians and vowing to escalate a campaign against them after it bombed a chapel adjoining Cairo’s St Mark’s Cathedral, the seat of the Coptic papacy, in December, killing 28 people.

“Oh crusaders in Egypt, this attack that struck you in your temple is just the first with many more to come, God willing,” said a masked man in battle-dress the group said blew himself up in the chapel.

Orthodox Copts, who comprise about 10 percent of Egypt’s 90 million people, are the Middle East’s largest Christian community. They have long complained of persecution.

The Coptic Orthodox Church denounced “the recurring terrorist incidents in North Sinai targeting Christian citizens” in a statement on Friday.

President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi told military and police chiefs “to completely eradicate terrorism in northern Sinai and defeat any attempts to target civilians or to undermine the unity of the national fabric”, in reference to the killings, his office said on Thursday.

Egypt is battling an insurgency that gained pace in 2013 after its military, led by Sisi, overthrew President Mohamed Mursi of the Muslim Brotherhood. Hundreds of soldiers and police have been killed.

Major General Mostafa al-Razaz, North Sinai’s deputy police chief, said security forces were capable of handling the “crisis” and that they added more patrols and checkpoints.

But Sinai’s Christians say security forces on the ground are unable to protect them and are overwhelmed by the militants.

“The government does nothing. There is no security in Sinai, they can’t even protect themselves,” said Adel…..

Netanyahu: ‘What if Israel Funded Scottish Independence Groups?’

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in a Facebook post the leaders of Belgium and the United Kingdom ought to stop providing funds to non-governmental organizations with leftist visions that seek to damage and harm Israel.

“I will continue to fight the lies and do everything to protect our soldiers,” Netanyahu said in the video post that was in Hebrew but reported in English by Algemeiner.

His post came on the heels of a meeting in Jerusalem with Charles Michel, the prime minister of Belgium, and in London with Theresa May, the prime minister of Britain.

Theresa May meets with Benjamin Netanyahu at Downing Street in London.

And it also came as May doubled down on Britain’s support of the Iran nuclear deal that Israel sees as a major security threat to its nation.

Bibi said, post-meetings, in his Facebook video:

“I asked the British prime minister today: How would you feel if I was funding with Israeli government money organizations that call British soldiers ‘war criminals?’ Or called for independence for Wales or independence for Scotland with Israeli govenrment funding?

“‘Well unfortunately,’ he continued, ‘this is what many governments do when they fund groups like Breaking the Silence, B’Tselem, Adalah, etc. So I asked that the British government cease funding these groups. I think the time has come.”

Good points.

Chances are, Britain wouldn’t stand for the treatment.

Meanwhile, May came out just this week and announced support of the nuclear deal with Iran – a pact that’s been widely panned by Israeli authorities, including Netanyahu, as dangerous to the Jewish state.

From the Independent:

“Theresa May has stood firm in her commitment to the Iranian nuclear deal despite pressure from the Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for fresh sanctions on Tehran.

“In a visit to Downing Street just days after Iran test-fired a ballistic missile Mr Netanyahu said ‘responsible’ nations should follow Donald Trump’s lead to head of Iranian aggression. …

“But speaking in the Commons shortly after the two leaders met at Number 10 for their first bilateral meeting, Ms May made no mention of further sanctions against Tehran. ‘We continue to believe the Iran nuclear deal was an important step forward and important contribution to stability in the region and we continue to support it,’ she said.”

Israeli minister: ‘Thank God that Obama is finishing his term’

Free people and foes of jihad the world over nod in agreement.

“Israeli minister: Thank God Obama is leaving office,” Jerusalem Post, January 1, 2017:

Culture and Sport Minister Miri Regev has made public her pleasure that US President Barack Obama is soon leaving office.

In an interview with Army Radio on Sunday, Regev said “thank God that Obama is finishing his term.”

“In Obama’s world view we have moved closer to peace, but during his term we have just gotten further from it,” she said, adding that “there have been more and more terror attacks in Berlin, Orlando and yesterday in Turkey, what does any of this have to do with the [Israeli] settlements?”

“It just cannot be the case that this is the way the President of the United States, who thank God is finishing his term, treats the State of Israel, as the weak link in the Middle East,” she stated. (Obama urges Israel end occupation and Palestinians accept Israel)

Regev’s comments came more than a week after Obama administration provoked the Israeli government’s fury by failing to block the passage of an anti-settlement resolution in the UN Security Council….

Hamas thrilled that Obama let UN pass anti-Israel resolution

“Hamas Couldn’t Be Happier Obama Let UN Pass Anti-Israel Resolution,” by Russ Read, Daily Caller, December 29, 2016:

Palestinian terrorist group Hamas is ecstatic about passage of a United Nations Security Council resolution condemning Israel’s settlement policy, and its own incitement to violence.

Hamas issued a statement supporting the resolution Saturday, one day after its passage. The Obama administration abstained from voting on the measure, allowing it to pass. The move infuriated Israeli officials who saw it as an abandonment of the historical U.S. policy of vetoing such resolutions.

“We value the position of states that voted in favor of the resolution and welcome this significant transformation in international positions that support the Palestinian people’s rights,” said Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhoum in a press release.

The terrorist group’s keen support is surprising, given the resolution supposedly also condemns groups like Hamas for engaging in terrorism against Israelis. What’s more, Barhoum goes on to say his group supports further resolutions “backing the Palestinian people’s just cause.”

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry claimed Wednesday the resolution rightly condemns incitement, but the resolution itself makes no mention of Palestinian incitement specifically. Instead, a majority of the resolution outlines Israel’s alleged transgressions.

Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes assured reporters in a phone call Friday that the administration’s decision to abstain from the vote does not change its long-standing policy of supporting Israel.

“President Obama has done more for Israel and its security than any previous U.S. president,” claimed Rhodes….

“Jerusalem terror attack leaves two Israelis dead, several injured,” by Brooks Hays, UPI, October 9, 2016:

JERUSALEM, Oct. 9 (UPI) — Two people are dead and others injured after a Palestinian gunman opened fire on a street in Jerusalem. The gunman fired his weapon from his car as he drove.

Israeli police chased the gunman on motorcycles, exchanging fire with the assailant before shooting him dead.

The Wall Street Journal reported a 60-year-old woman and a 30-year old man were killed in the attacks. NBC reported a policeman was one of two people killed by the gunman.

On Twitter, Micky Rosenfeld, press spokesman for Israeli police, confirmed the death of one of the first responders.

Officials reported six others were wounded in the ambush, which authorities labeled a terrorist attack….

Over the last year, 42 Israelis have been killed and more than 500 wounded in attacks carried out by Palestinians. The majority of the attacks involved stabbings and car-ramming incidents….
