Investigation: Officer, who shot Ethiopian, is telling the truth
An investigation reveals the officer shot at the ground. Pictures of his 3 young children have been posted online with calls to kill them.
A report related the policeman's version of what happened that fateful day. The off-duty policeman went out with his wife and his children to the park in the evening and saw three young Ethiopian men beating up a 13-year old boy and trying to steal his money and phone.
The policeman approached the scene, ordering them to leave the boy alone but they ignored him. The officer then identified himself as a policeman, but to no avail - the men began cursing at him and threatening him. The policemen then decided to leave the scene since the boy had run away and he noticed that the men seemed to be drunk.
However, shortly later the three men returned and began throwing rocks at the officer, hitting him in the head, chest and shoulders. The officer called for back-up, but meanwhile, feeling like his life was in real danger, pulled out his gun to warn and deter the men. He shot towards the ground and a nearby wall. "I didn't shoot in the air out of fear of harming passersby since it's a populated area," the officer said. (It did not take long for NIF and leftist anti-Zionist groups to finance, join and escalate the rotest!)
Food for Thought. by Steven Shamrak
I do want to see peace between Israel and her neighbours, but with all my vivid imagination I am not able to visualise it while Arab hate-dwellers live on Jewish land with the determination to destroy Israel and kill Jews. By repeating the same acts, one will get the same results only. Why would the same misguided and impotent plans and fake agreements bring peace to Israel after they failed so many times? Why are we sacrificing the Jewish dream, Jewish national unity and Jewish lives for the illusion that our enemies may become humane and respectful toward Jews! What kind of dream is this? Delusion!
MK Yousef Jabareen (Hadash-"The Democratic Front for Peace and Equality" - Leftist anti-Israel party) publicly called for a boycott of Israel in remarks he gave at the anti-Israel Palestine Expo event taking place in London. “Everybody is witnessing the return marches in Gaza, and I want to be frank here and say that there needs to a more mass mobilization of our people on the ground, in Gaza but also in the West Bank,” he said (Israelis/Jews are not his people!)
Israeli and US officials in recent days have intensified their efforts to prevent the Palestinian Authority’s (PA) self-inflicted financial collapse. Israel is considering waiving NIS 200 million a month of PA tax payments to Israel for fuel in order to alleviate the PA financial crisis.
Foreign Minister Yisrael Katz visited Abu Dhabi as part of the United Nations Environment Conference. This is the first trip by a senior Israeli minister to an Arab country immediately following the US-led economic conference in Bahrain. (Small and slow, but encouraging, steps in 'normalization' process with Arabs)
The Ministry of Energy is planning to have at least 2,500 charging stations for electric vehicles stretching across the entire country by the middle of next year.
The Palestinian Authority (PA) has paid NIS 234 million (approx. $65 million) in salaries to terrorists in the first five months of 2019. This vast sum is a rise of 11.8 percent compared to 2018 and is being paid out in a period that the PA claims it is facing financial failure.
Ancient bones excavated in Israel and analysed in Germany provided for the first-time evidence of the biblical people's European origins. The Philistines are believed to have arrived in the region in the 12th century BCE. Biblical and ancient Egyptian texts indicated their origin to be from "the sea". The word Philistine (means "Invaders") also morphed through centuries in Greek, Roman and Hebrew texts to create the geographic term "Palestine."
The head of the Mossad intelligence service said that Israel was renewing ties with Oman. “Just recently, renewal of formal relations with Oman was declared and the establishment of a representative office of the foreign ministry in that country.” (Wishful thinking? Oman has already denied the claim that it’s establishing diplomatic ties with Israel!)
Bernie Sanders joined IfNotNow Young Jews in 'Unforgettable' Anti-Zionist Outing! (It is not surprising!)
Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas announced that he is ready to sever all ties with Israel... Meanwhile, PA Economy Minister Khaled Al-Assaily on Monday told Voice of Palestine radio that the PA will begin to take practical steps to free itself from economic dependence on Israel. He did not specify a timetable for implementing these measures. The Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories confirmed that the PA had stopped transferring patients to hospitals in Israel. (Good luck! How about full 'disengagement' from Israel - stop occupation of Jewish land and leave?)
US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman had the honour of opening the path to the rediscovered City of David’s Pilgrimage Road. The Pilgrimage Road is the two-thousand-year-old main thoroughfare used by pilgrims to ascend to the Jewish Temple on Mount Moriah, after ritually purifying themselves in the Pool of Siloam (Shiloach).
A mother renowned in the Palestinian territories for having six terrorist sons who have murdered a total of at least 10 Israelis, became a grandmother this week after smuggling out of prison the sperm of one of her sons.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has approved a project to build an international field hospital campus near the Erez Crossing to treat Gaza patients. The hospital, to be funded by a private American organization, will have 16 departments.
The Palestinian Authority with support from the European Union is creating facts on the ground. Some 28,000 illegal Arab structures have been erected in Israeli-controlled Area C, Ushering Palestinian State
Palestinian Authority (PA) officials are seeking to obtain overseas posts at any cost. Hundreds of employees had requested to be posted abroad in PA embassies and consulates around the world, but PA head Mahmoud Abbas has denied all the requests. It is of significance to note that not all appointments abroad entail higher pay or improved work benefits. (Just imagine how fast ALL of them would run with a little 'push' from Israel!)
Quote of the Week:
“Israel is a country of the Middle East. Israel is part of the heritage of this whole region. The Jewish People have a place amongst us. The Israeli public needs to trust that there are countries in the region that do want to have peace and do encourage the Palestinians to do it.” - Bahraini Foreign Minister Khalid Al Khalifa, in his first interview with the Israeli media - Nice words! Rebuttals and 'clarification' have already been made immediately!

Israel might think its strong, but Gaza Strip leaders know we're as squeezable as ever, especially as elections near yet again; a strong country would have sent Hamas soul searching, with no gas or fishing perimeter, until they realize they have to stop the firebombs and explosives, (Most self-respecting countries would have obliterated Hamas terror group and have removed its supporting population from Gaza a long time ago!)
The wave of incendiary balloons in Gaza border Israeli communities ended yet again with another arrangement that has no hope of lasting, which is a microcosm of failing Israeli policies...
And that's how things fly: more than 15 fires every day, far more explosive devices on the border fence and a bonus — Hamas announced it is experimenting with long-range missiles. Israel's Pavlovian response was quick to come: it limited the Strip's fishing perimeter and gas supply.
Security officials know they're making fools of themselves with these failed zig zags in policy, but play along...
Throughout this crisis, Israel was busy at work, building infrastructure for water and power to Gaza. (Appeasement never works when dealing with Islamic terrorists!)
An independent and secure country should have sent Hamas packing until it has no choice but to stop. This extortion only leads to future extortion...
