Netanyahu issues ultimatum to German foreign minister

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu threatened on Monday to cancel his meeting with German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel over his plans to meet with the ultra left-wing anti-Israel organization Breaking the Silence.

The Prime Minister’s Office would not comment on the matter, but it sent out Netanyahu’s schedule for Tuesday without mentioning the meeting.

Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely congratulated Netanyahu for setting a redline with regard to anti-Israel organizations.

“This is battle against those who slander Israel in the world,” she said.

The German Foreign Minister arrived in Israel on Monday and is set to meet with President Reuven Rivlin in Jerusalem and Palestinian Authority ‘Prime Minister’ Rami Hamdallah in Ramallah on Tuesday.

7738257699584640360no.jpgGabriel is a controversial figure in the relations between Israel and Germany, which have been deteriorating in recent months.

He is a member of the Social Democratic Party and, before serving in his current post, wrote many articles on social media condemning Israel, which he called “an apartheid state.” He refused to apologize for these statements, although he was asked to do so.


The German foreign minister is also one of the leaders of the foreign policy of the Merkel administration, and has worked to strengthen Germany’s relations with Iran as much as possible after the lifting of sanctions from the rogue state.

The German media reported this morning that due to the deterioration in relations, Israel conveyed a clear message to the Merkel government that it is not interested in its involvement in attempts to renew contacts with the Palestinian Authority.

PM Netanyahu’s comments following the cancellation of his meeting with the German foreign minister:

“I am leading Israel’s foreign relations to unprecedented growth. But based on a proud, assertive national policy, not out of weakness. Our relations with Germany are strong and important and will also continue as such. My policy is not to meet diplomats who visit Israel and meet orgs that slander IDF soldiers and seek to put them on trial as war criminals. Those same diplomats would never dream of doing this in the US or UK, or in any other place. Our soldiers are the basis of our existence. They guard us and we will guard them”.

Muslim Arab terrorist who murdered British student will get $1,025 a month salary from the Palestinian Authority

A Muslim Arab terrorist who murdered a British student in Jerusalem will be paid a salary of more than $1025 a month by the Palestinian Authority government – which receives more than £25 million a year from the UK in foreign aid.

Terrorist Jamil Tamimi, murdered theology student Hannah Bladon in a frenzied knife terror attack on Good Friday after the 21-year-old gave up her seat on a tram to a woman with a baby.

The 57-year-old Muslim terrorist told police that he attacked Hannah, a Birmingham University exchange student attached to Jerusalem’s Hebrew University, in the hope that a soldier in the carriage would kill him.

Instead Tamimi was arrested and is almost certain to be lauded as a ‘hero’ by the Palestinian Authority (PA), like hundreds of other terrorists before him.


An Israeli court has already ruled, following a psychiatric evaluation, that he is fit to stand trial and should be treated as a terrorist by the justice system.

It means Tamimi or his family qualify for a ‘salary’ from the PA, according to Itamar Marcus, the founder and director of the Israeli monitoring group Palestinian Media Watch.

‘According to PA law, everyone who is imprisoned for ‘resisting the occupation’ receives a PA salary,’ he said. ‘In PA practice, 100 per cent of the suicide bombers, stabbers, shooters and car rammers have been included in this category and do receive PA salaries.’

Terrorists who have ‘resisted the occupation’ are paid a monthly amount by the PA and the Palestine Liberation Organisation (PLO) on a sliding scale related to their sentence.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s official spokesman, Ofir Gendelman, tweeted his outrage, saying: ‘Not only didn’t PA president Abbas condemn Hannah Bladon’s murder, but he’ll reward the Palestinian attacker who did it with a monthly salary.’


Influential commentator Avi Mayer, a former spokesman for the Israel Defence Forces, added: ‘If you’re British and you pay taxes, know that your money is going to fund a body that rewards convicted murderers.’

British taxpayers give the PA £25 million a year from foreign aid for health and education.

Last December, the British Department for International Development announced that it would restrict its payments to the PA to health and education with a ‘vetted list’ of public servants. But when British taxpayers’ cash goes to education and health, it frees up money in other budgets controlled by the PA.

Soldier girl stabbed at Qalandiya checkpoint; female Muslim Arab terrorist neutralized

A female soldier was stabbed at the Qalandiya checkpoint Monday morning, north of Jerusalem.

The female Muslim Arab terrorist was neutralized at the scene, while the soldier—an NCO in the Civil Administration—was lightly wounded in the upper body.

Police report that the terrorist arrived at the checkpoint and approached security forces, claiming she wanted to ask a question. At that point, she pulled out a knife that was concealed in her bag and stabbed the soldier.

Police and security guards on the scene then neutralized the terrorist. The injured soldier was treated lightly by MDA and evacuated to the hospital.

The attack Monday morning on Holocaust Remembrance Day comes on the heels of another stabbing attack in Tel Aviv in which an 18-year-old Muslim Arab terrorist from Shechem stabbed several pedestrians in a hotel on HaYarkon Street.

Terror attack in Tel Aviv: Muslim Arab terrorist stabs 4 inside a hotel lobby

An 18-year-old Muslim Arab terrorist from Shechem stabbed and wounded three men and a woman in Tel Aviv at Leonardo Beach Hotel on Hayarkon Street Sunday afternoon.

Policemen and MDA teams were immediately called to the scene, where the terrorist was arrested.

The victims included three men, two in their 50s and one in his early 70s, and a woman in her early 50s.

The four were treated on the scene by United Hatzalah and MDA paramedics before being evacuated to Ichilov Hospital in Tel Aviv. The injuries sustained by all four victims have been listed as light.

Police have taken the 18-year old  Muslim Arab terrorist into custody.

The terrorist acknowledged his crimes during interrogation, and claimed the attack was nationalistically motivated, confirmed suspicions the incident was indeed a terror attack.

The 18-year old Arab terrorist had entered Israel legally with an entrance permit secured by a left-wing NGO, authorities revealed.

The terrorist received the entry permit, which was issued by the Defense Ministry’s department for Coordination of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT) at the request of the leftist Natural Peace Tour organization, for a one-day tour of Israel.

Natural Peace Tour is one of several leftist groups which bring Palestinian Authority Arabs into Israel for vacations, ‘peace tours’, and meetings with Israeli youths.

Rather than take a tour, however, the terrorist used the entry permit to carry out Sunday’s attack at the Leonardo Hotel.

ISIS terrorist who shot policeman dead in Paris was released from prison after shooting officers

French security services are today facing troubling questions as to how they failed to prevent an ISIS Muslim terrorist slaughtering one policeman and wounding two other officers when he was already on a terror watch list.

The Champs-Elysees terrorist – identified as Karim Cheurfi – had been detained only last month, it has emerged, after informants said he was ‘seeking to obtain weapons to kill policemen’.

But the 39-year-old, who used the war name ‘Abu Yousuf the Belgian’, had to be released because anti-terror police did not have enough evidence to hold him.

The homegrown terrorist, who officials confirmed was a French national despite his nickname, had also been released early from prison – where it is thought he was radicalized – having been jailed for 20 years in 2005 for trying to kill two policemen.

Cheurfi opened fire five times with a .38 revolver following a car chase in 2001, leaving the officers and a third victim wounded.


He had fled on foot before the driver of the other car and the passenger – a trainee police officer – caught up with him. He fired twice, seriously wounding both men in the chest. All three survived the attack in Roissy-en-Brie, in the Seine-et-Marne department of northern France.

Cheurfi was arrested and placed in custody under a false name. Two days later he seriously injured an officer who was taking him out of his cell, seizing his weapon and firing several times.

Two French officials said this morning that Cheurfi was detained in February for threatening police before being freed, although a warrant for his arrest is dated March 6.

Over the past few months he had reportedly been undergoing psychiatric and terrorist investigations for uttering death threats against law enforcement officials.


The ISIS terrorist is believed to have been released in 2016 following the triple assassination attempt, at a time when he was known for drug offences, car theft and robbery.


It has been claimed Cheurfi was making dark threats on messaging app Telegram before launching his attack on the Champs Elysees in Paris last night.

ISIS has claimed responsibility for the atrocity, which was carried out with a Kalashnikov weapon. A female foreign terrorist was also injured when a bullet ricocheted off the police car before Cheurfi was shot dead.

The terror attack unfolded as presidential candidates, including National Front party leader Marine Le Pen, debated on a TV show nearby before Sunday’s election.

French President Francois Hollande said he was convinced it was a terrorist attack, adding that he would hold a security cabinet meeting this morning.


Mortar shells from Syria explode in Israeli territory in the Golan Heights

A rocket Alert Siren was activated Friday afternoon on the Golan Heights.

Three rockets landed in open territory on the Golan. No damage or injuries were reported.

According to initial estimates, the projectiles were thought to have been spillover from fighting in the civil war across the border in Syria.

The siren comes after the IDF reported that a mortar fell in the northern Golan Heights on Friday afternoon.

The IDF opened fire towards Syria, after three mortar shells exploded in the Golan Heights as a result of spillover from the Syrian civil war.

“The IDF will not tolerate any attempt to harm the sovereignty of the State of Israel and the security of its residents and views the Syrian regime as being responsible for what is happening in its territory,” the IDF Spokesperson said.

The border with Syria has been tense since the civil war erupted in 2011, and in April of 2015 Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu admitted for the first time that the IDF had carried out strikes in Syrian territory.

Terror in Paris: Police officer shot dead, 2 others wounded by Kalashnikov-wielding ISIS terrorist

A policeman was shot dead while two others were seriously injured by a Kalashnikov-wielding Muslim terrorist on the Champs Elysees in central Paris tonight – just three days before the French presidential election.

French police said that the attack was probably a ‘terrorist act’ and the world famous avenue was on lockdown by 9pm.

Dramatic video footage captured the moment police shot dead the ISIS terrorist who was known to security services and had been flagged as an ‘extremist’.

Police have launched a desperate manhunt for a second ISIS terrorist after heavily armed officers flooded the area in the heart of the French capital.

Officer are searching the home of the terrorist in east Paris and the Muslim terrorist had previously mentioned on social media that he ‘wanted to kill police’.

The terror attack unfolded as presidential candidates, including National Front party leader Marine Le Pen, debated on a TV show nearby before Sunday’s election.


The Interior Ministry spokesman said the officers were deliberately targeted and the police union added that the policeman was killed while sat in a car at a red light.

In the video, posted on Twitter, several figures can be seen moving around next to a police van on the Champs Elysees.

One of the figures then appeared to fall to the ground and a silver car – believed to have been used by the suspects – can be seen parked next to the van.

Police have now issued an arrest warrant for a second Muslim terrorist – a man understood to have arrived in France by train from Belgium.




2 Gazan cancer patients caught with explosives among medical equipment

Israeli authorities on Wednesday morning intercepted material used to manufacture explosive devices hidden inside spools of medical material at the Erez Crossing, the Shin Bet announced in a statement.

The material was located during the security check at the crossing in the luggage of two sisters who are residents of Gaza. The two Arab women had been approved to enter Israel for the purpose of receiving medical treatment for cancer, which one of the two sisters suffers from.

An initial Shin Bet investigation indicated that the explosives were sent by Hamas and that the terror group was planning to carry out terror attacks in Israel in the near future, the statement read, adding that the material was destroyed by a sapper of the Southern District police force.


“The terrorist organizations in the Gaza Strip, including Hamas, continue to exploit the humanitarian and medical assistance provided by Israel to the residents of Gaza in order to perpetrate terrorist attacks in Israel.”

Terror attack in Fresno: 3 people murdered by Muslim terrorist who yelled ‘Allahu Akbar’

Three people were murdered after a Muslim terrorist went on a shooting spree in downtown Fresno, California on Tuesday before he was tackled and taken into custody, police said.

Fresno Police Chief Jerry Dyer said officers have taken  Kori Ali Muhammad, 39, into custody in connection to the shootings. Dyer said Muhammad went by the nickname “Black Jesus” and shouted “Allahu Akbar” as police tackled him to the ground.

Dyer said at a news conference Muhammad has made posts against white people and the government on his Facebook page, and that all the people he shot were white men.


The shooting spree began around 10:45 a.m. local time, when one person was shot in a PG&E utility truck, a second person was shot on Fulton Street and a third person was shot in the parking lot of Catholic Charities.

All three shooting locations were close to each other. Around 16 shots were fired during the shooting spree, police said.


The terrorist was already wanted in connection to the killing of an unarmed security guard at a Motel 6 last week, police said.

“Our thoughts are with all involved in the incident that occurred in Fresno today,” PG&E said in a statement. “Public and employee safety is always our top priority. We are still gathering information on what happened, and will work to support first responders and law enforcement in their efforts.”

Dyer said Fresno police have called the FBI to assist in the investigation. The terrorist made other statements to police, but Dyer did not disclose what they were.
