    Arutz Sheva ^ | 10/2/16 | Leonie Ben Simon
    t takes a village to raise a child. Children are being raised in many Arab villages to hate from birth with the ultimate aim and honour of being a shahid – a martyr - if they kill Jews. Their schoolbooks and their media bring them up to believe this. Their teachers, their parents and their whole villages dance and celebrate when Jews are murdered by their own teenagers. It is no accident that their young people are murdering Jews. All efforts to stop this have not worked. The left has failed miserably in its integration efforts. Politicians are afraid of...

    In what can only be described as a celebration of violence and death, young Palestinian children participated in a Bethlehem parade last week by dressing up as armed terrorists, complete with mock suicide belts. The parade marked the 51st anniversary of the first terrorist attack by Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas’ Fatah movement, and was attended by several high ranking Palestinian Authority officials. Ofer Gendelman, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s official spokesman to the Arab media, called the event a glorification of terrorism aimed at encouraging a new generation of Palestinian youth to join the violence.

    HOUSTON (KTRK) -- A terror suspect who was arrested in Houston last week went before a judge Wednesday afternoon, where his bond was denied. During testimony, we learned disturbing allegations against him. A federal investigator testified that Omar Faraj Saeed Al Hardan, 24, wanted to blow up the Galleria and Sharpstown Mall with a remote bomb. According to testimony, Al Hardan would put the bomb in a trash can and detonate it using a cell phone. They also say he received military training on how to use an AK-47 late last year at a farm just outside of Houston. Agents...

    our years ago, then-secretary of state Hillary Clinton considered a secret plan created by her advisers to clandestinely foment unrest among Arabs in Judea and Samaria, in order to push the Israeli government back to the negotiating table. The revelation arises from emails released as part of the investigation into the Democratic presidential frontrunner’s private email server..... Another Clinton confidant, Anne Marie Slaughter, sent an email to Clinton staffers recommending that they undertake a “Pledge for Palestine” campaign to convince US millionaires and billionaires to donate significant portions of their wealth to the Palestinian cause.

The letter, signed by 32 members of Congress, cites Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) reports that the PLO funds terrorism by paying “salaries” to Palestinians who are put in Israeli jails as a way of rewarding and incentivizing terror attacks. “Our close ally Israel is...

After the capture of a fugitive Rwanda genocide suspect on Dec. 9, the news media noted that eight other Rwandan mass murderers are still on the run, and the State Department's "Rewards for Justice" program is offering $5 million to anyone who provides information leading to their capture. Paying tipsters may not be the single-most effective way to combat terrorism, but one should not dismiss the program's contributions. Its website,www.RewardsForJustice.net, reports that more than 80 informers have received reward money. Nine "success stories"...

    On Sunday morning, a female terrorist was attempting to stab a girl in the bus station at the junction of the Samaria Regional Brigade, when former Samaria Regional Council head Gershon Mesika noticed the incident and drove his car in her direction to try and stop her.

At that point, according to Elyakim Gross from Itamar, he, Gross, shot two bullets into the terrorist’s body, and a soldier who had rushed over also shot her twice.

Jay Shapiro thinks that is wrong. According to him, the problem of the Palestinians is that they have hope that they can destroy the Jewish state and until that hope is crushed they will continue to murder Jews.

The actual anniversary is on the Sabbath, the 11th day of the Hebrew month Cheshvan. It is customary for worshippers to visit the site at this time, though Arab violence makes this dangerous and in extreme cases, notably during the 2000 intifada, Israeli security closes the site to Jews.

Violence has risen in East Jerusalem and the occupied West Bank in recent weeks. Though not at the levels of previous Palestinian uprisings, or "Intifadas," it has triggered concerns of a wider escalation. Police spokeswoman Luba Samri said the victim was taken to hospital in moderate condition and that police men "saw the terrorist holding a knife, shot and neutralized him." The attack happened...

    Bits and pieces have emerged over the past few days about Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeezs troubled life. But two significant pieces of the puzzle are missing: Why did he ambush two military sites, killing four Marines and a sailor? And was he propelled to do so by his own demons or at the direction of someone else? Until last Thursdays shooting, the Kuwait-born 24-year-old was not on the radar of terrorism investigators. As a result, a portrait of his background, contacts, computer use and travels must be assembled from the ground up and pieced together. He blended into everyday life in...

    After it was revealed that the Muslim shooter who on Thursday murdered four US Marines in Chattanooga, Tennessee was the son of a man who previously was on the terrorist watch list, new details have surfaced about the father. It has been widely reported that the shooter, Muhammod Youssuf Abdulazeez, was a naturalized American born in Kuwait. While its true his mother Rasmia Abdulazeez is from Kuwait, where Muhammod was born in 1990, multiple reports reveal that the attackers father Youssuf Abdulazeez actually hailed from Shechem (Nablus) in Samaria, a city under Palestinian Authority (PA) control. [] Experts have said...

    BETHLEHEM, WEST BANK (CNN) - Pope Francis will canonize two 19th century Palestinian women as Roman Catholic saints. The historic event is especially meaningful to one of the world's oldest Christian communities. It is the perfect celebration of sainthood for two Palestinian nuns, a humble and devout offering of prayer to mark a historic moment for Christians and Palestinians. In the land of Jesus Christ and the Virgin Mary, the land of the beginnings of Christianity, Mariam Baouardy and Marie-Alphonsine Ghattas are the first two Palestinian saints in modern times. As Christians, this is a sign of hope, this is...

    Pope Francis met Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas on Saturday, calling him an angel of peace, days after the Vatican said it was preparing to sign its first accord with Palestine to the anger of Israel. Abbas met the pontiff for about 20 minutes for a private audience, a meeting that comes a day before the pope is due to canonise two Palestinian nuns, who will become the first Palestinian Arabs to gain sainthood.

    ROME The Vatican said Wednesday that it had concluded a treaty to recognize Palestinian statehood, a symbolic but significant step welcomed by Palestinians but upsetting to the Israeli government. Formal recognition of a Palestinian state by the Vatican, which has deep religious interests in the Israeli-occupied Palestinian territories that include Christian holy sites, lends a powerful signal of moral authority and legitimacy to the efforts by the Palestinian Authoritys president, Mahmoud Abbas, to achieve statehood despite the long paralyzed Israeli-Palestinian peace process. Israel has grown increasingly alarmed about the increased international acceptance of Palestine as a state since the...

    The internal tension in the Arab cities of Shechem (Nablus) and Jenin in Samaria has long been growing and threatening to boil over, as the Palestinian Authority's (PA) leading Fatah faction and its security apparatus clash. The two cities, which are under full control of the PA as per the 1993 Oslo Accords, in recent days became the scenes of violence between Fatah, which features a "military wing" named the Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigade, and the PA Security Forces. An exchange of gunfire was reported last Friday at Jenin between armed men, apparently from Fatah, and members of the PA Security...

    WASHINGTON President Obama said he has told Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that the Israeli leaders remarks in the closing days of his re-election campaign had upended the Israeli-Palestinian peace process and ran counter to the very nature of Israeli democracy, an unusually forceful and public condemnation of the top official of a vital United States ally. In his first public comments on the matter since Mr. Netanyahus victory in Tuesdays elections, Mr. Obama said the prime ministers pre-election statement that there would be no Palestinian state on his watch had all but foreclosed the chance for negotiations to resolve...
