The first murder of 2021 in Israel took place in Jadeidi-Makr. A 21-year-old resident of the village was killed in a drive-by shooting. The last murder victim of 2020 was a resident of the same village, age 27, who was stabbed in the head.
A total of 113 Israeli Arabs were killed in 2020 in murders and other violent incidents, compared with 94 in 2019 (a 20% increase). 96 of the victims were men and 17 women.
In total, since 2000, 1,523 Arabs have been killed in violent incidents, 80% of them by firearms, according to data from the Aman Center. It is estimated that there are 400,000 illegal weapons in Israel.
93% of all criminal shooting incidents in Israel
take place in Arab society!
A Knesset Research and Information Center report shows that more than half of the heads of the 67 Arab municipalities in Israel have been found by the Ministry of Internal Security to be under threats from Arab organized crime. Their number has doubled from 17 in 2017 to 35 in 2019, and 67 in 2020.
…as Arab organized crime families take hold of local municipal services they get more money, which in turn makes them stronger. (Jew-haters will tell you that it is all fault of Israel!)

Arab Israelis are “prominently involved” in violent crimes and in drug trafficking, said Israel Police Commissioner Roni Alsheikh.
According to the data, although Arab Israelis make up 21% of the population, their involvement in serious crimes is double or more that figure: Police statistics for 2017 show that Arab Israelis are involved in 57% of murder cases, 55% of attempted murder cases and 59% of arson cases.
The statistics also show Arab Israelis are involved in 45% of all theft cases, in 36% of all property crimes, and are implicated in 26% of drug trafficking cases.
In 2016, the statistics showed that Arab Israelis were involved in 63% of murder cases, 57% of arson cases, 48% of theft cases, 36% of property crimes and 22% of drug-related crimes...
A recent campaign to collect illegal weapons in the Arab sector was essentially a “failure,” as very few weapons were turned in, even though owners were guaranteed immunity from prosecution...
Additionally, the data showed that in 2016, the number of overall criminal cases dropped to 329,823, as opposed to 446,689 in 2007. This drop did not necessarily reflect an improvement, but may reflect the fact that the public has lost faith in the police and therefore files fewer complaints.
Food for Thought. by Steven Shamrak
SHAMFUL JEWISH SELF-HATE: There are 1.3 billion Muslims in the world - not a single anti-Wahabism (Islamic world domination movement) Muslim organisation could be found anywhere. There are just 14 million Jews, but there are a multitude of Jewish anti-Zionist organisations all over the world, supporting enemies of Israel and even Jews! I always say, “Nobody respects those who have no self-respect!”
Turkey continues to feed stories to media outlets about wanting reconciliation with Israel. At the same time, it has appointed an anti-Israel envoy to Israel who has accused Zionism of being racist and accused Israel of massacres. Turkey demands that Israel ruin relations with Greece, Cyprus and the UAE, isolating itself and become dependent on Ankara for energy trade. And Turkey wants to see Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu lose the next election. Ankara keeps talking about better relations with Israel. But Ankara’s government led by the ruling AKP Party, hosts Hamas terrorists. Turkey slammed Israel for the 2009 war in Gaza. Instead of condemning Hamas terrorist rockets, Ankara blamed Israel. Turkey also then mobilized Muslim Brotherhood-connected activists to sail to Gaza, creating another crisis.
The Trump administration on Thursday voted against the United Nations' 2021 program budget, citing its continued support of an "anti-Israel" event and Separately, Craft cited the UN’s decision not to implement the snapback mechanism of sanctions against Iran. The US triggered the mechanism, contained in the 2015 Iran nuclear deal. The U.S. has pulled funding from the U.N. Palestinian refugee agency (UNRWA) and has left institutions like UNESCO and the UN Human Rights Council.
Iran said it plans to enrich uranium up to 20% at its underground Fordo nuclear facility “as soon as possible,” pushing its program a technical step away from weapons-grade levels as it increases pressure on the West over the tattered atomic deal.
The IDF report said although 2020 saw a lower number of terror attacks compared to past years, there was a rise in what the army calls "The War Between the Wars", which is covert and open military operations against Israel's enemies abroad, mainly Syria, Iran and its Lebanese proxy, terror group Hezbollah. IDF memo outlining past 12 months details over 50 attacks in Syria; 176 projectiles fired into Israel from Gaza. Over the past year, almost 300 military targets in Gaza were attacked by the IDF. One underground terror tunnel along the Gaza border was uncovered, which apparently was dug by Hamas and crossed into Israeli territory.
The International Criminal Court (ICC) has announced that it will discontinue its investigation of the Chinese government over alleged human rights violations committed against China’s Muslim Uighur minorities. The Chief Prosecutor had swiftly determined that since China is not a signatory to the Rome Statute, and thus, China is not a member state, the Court had no jurisdiction to further advance any investigations or prosecutions. At the same time, ICC continues to pursue two other non-state members of the Court, the United States and Israel.
Gaza militants fire rockets into the sea in first-ever joint exercise. Hamas, Islamic Jihad, the Popular Resistance Committees and others launched rockets into the Mediterranean Sea off the Gaza Strip as their first-ever joint exercise. Eight rockets streaked through a cloudless sky in Gaza towards the Mediterranean as a test of their preparedness for any future confrontation with Israel. The drill was organized by the militants' sponsors in Tehran to demonstrate risks Israel could face if Iran comes under U.S. or Israeli attack
Quote of the Week:
“I will insist the Hebrews have (contributed) more to civilize men than any other nation. If I was an atheist and believed in blind eternal fate, I should still believe that fate had ordained the Jews to be the most essential instrument for civilizing the nations... They are the most glorious nation that ever inhabited this Earth. The Romans and their empire were but a bubble in comparison to the Jews. They have given religion to three-quarters of the globe and have influenced the affairs of mankind more and more happily than any other nation, ancient or modern.” - John Adams, the second President of the United States.
Self-imposed Limitation is the Cause
by Steven Shamrak.
The UN, USA, EU and even Arab states are not to be blamed for Israel's problems. They have always been disparaging of Jews. We will never be able to please them or change their nature. Disunity, self-hate and lack of direction are the main problems of the Jewish people.
The International pressure on Israel and the despair of Jewish people have been steadily increasing since the creation of Israel. The present level of disunity and even hate among Jews is appalling in Israel and in the Diaspora! These are direct results of the continuation of gutless, self-disrespectful and divisive policies that have been conducted by most Israeli governments and many community leaders.
Many Jewish communities have been hiding behind nice and politically correct activities which have not resulted in any true accomplishment! There are thousands of Jewish organisations, publications, websites and active individuals. Most of them are acting with a good intention for the common good. Many of them are even getting positive results in their niche. But there is a lack of a common vision, leadership and direction.
For centuries our enemies have been exploiting Jewish disunity with considerable success. After living in an anti-Semitic atmosphere for so long the Jewish people misplaced their national pride: the pride that made us unique among the nations! This was the pride that compelled Jews to fight both Greek and Roman occupations. The pride that made us succeed against all odds in business, science, medicine, music, art etc.
Unfortunately, Jews started to believe our 'inadequate' enemies' slander. Even in our own country, we are living under the imaginary 'Glass lid' - self-imposed limitations - and are unwilling to leave our self-imprisonment and realise our destiny.
We need Jewish leaders, bankers, educators and radicals united by the one Jewish National Goal now! Where are they? There is no time for useless debates anymore. Political affiliations must not interfere with the right of the Jewish people to live on all Jewish land as a sovereign nation. The time for action has arrived!
