When you, and others who are nearly indistinguishable from you, bite the hand that feeds you.... you shouldn't be surprised when that hand gives you the finger:

http://www.jewishpress.com/news/brea...ls/2015/10/18/

Muqata already reported that Arab workers are banned from Jewish communities in the Shomron region by order of the IDF commander responsible for that area. Additionally, communities in Gush Etzion are petitioning school faculties to fire all of their Arab janitors, and replace them with Jewish labor.

MK Dov Hanin would do well to consult his party's most notorious member MK Hanin Zoabi if he's truly looking to address his constituents' problems, according to the mayor of Nazereth.

Is this a heavy-handed measure? Absolutely. But then, when Arabs with Israeli citizenship openly prefer to align with the PLO, and Arabs who passed background checks suddenly act as though they never should have received that chance, who can you trust?

List of attacks since September 14:
https://www.idfblog.com/blog/2015/10...trikes-israel/

Attacks compiled into statistics, based on weapon of choice, category of victim(s), and day of the week. The article notes the uptick in attacks immediately following Abbas' speech at the UN:
http://www.jewishpress.com/news/brea...rs/2015/10/19/
(The pie chart is very sloppy.)

No surprises that the most attacks occur on Fridays.

25 abstentions? I'd love to see that list.

An initial draft of the resolution had also called for the Kotel (Western Wall) to be listed as an Islamic site - or more specifically as an "extension of the Al Aqsa Mosque" - but that detail was hastily withdrawn after widespread condemnation, including from UNESCO's own Director-General.
Having visited both Rachel's Tomb and the Cave of the Patriarchs, and having seen the most recent damage to Josef's Tomb, I have to wonder what difference does a UNESCO designation make?

"It's not easy, we're in the eye of the storm," the mayor added. "There is a very large construction site nearby and we will have to reassess the situation and how to proceed for the future."
Arabs are a common source of cheap labor in this country. During the Second Intifada, lots of Arabs were fired in favor of foreign workers (especially Filipinos), and we will probably see this happen again.

Mr. Jonathan Schanzer's testimony before the House Foreign Affairs Committee. Before working at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, he was an analyst at the Treasury Department. He's extremely well-informed about the behind-the-scenes stuff.

The Arabs continue to harass traffic in the Shomron and Yehuda regions, but attacks and riots in major cities appear to have tapered off... apparently they're suddenly afraid that biting the hand that feeds them (Jewish customers) might have consequences.

http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/202449


Meanwhile, the army and the police are busy thwarting other attacks before they happen, and are occasionally attacked as targets of opportunity. That being said, just because the Arabs aren't successful doesn't mean they aren't trying.
http://www.jpost.com/Arab-Israeli-Co...st-Bank-430393

From a resident of the Shomron area, who works as a grocer:
http://shilohmusings.blogspot.co.il/...ror-waned.html

Of note: When she mentions that there are no Arab customers anymore, that is probably because of an order by a military commander in the region banning Arabs from entering Jewish communities.

In sum: The situation continues to be what it is, but we can't barricade ourselves at home forever.

The attacks haven't stopped, though most of the recent incidents were directed at soldiers, or stopped by vigilant soldiers before they could reach "soft" targets.

Ezra Schwartz from Sharon, MA.

Another American citizen allowed to be murdered because State is clueless.

http://www.timesofisrael.com/ezra-sc...vercome-fears/


Meanwhile, John Kerry will be visiting us next week. I sincerely hope he stays away from the grieving family, after what he did at Max Steinberg's family's shiva house.

With all the weapons caches that the IDF seems to uncover every other week, I'm surprised this didn't happen sooner.

US Army veteran and Vanderbilt student murdered in Jaffa, while Biden was visiting the "Peres Center for Peace" nearby:

http://news.vanderbilt.edu/2016/03/m...ath-in-israel/


PLO calls it a "complex operation":
http://www.israelnationalnews.com/Ne...5#.Vt_qzfl95hE


Gee, you don't think this attack (and the others which occurred yesterday and this morning) was timed to coincide with Biden's visit?
