Terrorism seems to be a family affair:

12:02pm Info about Jerusalem terrorists
The terrorists on the bus in Armon HaNetziv had planned on hijacking the bus. At least one of the attackers was related to the terrorist that perpetrated the Har Nof shul massacre.
The Har Nof synagogue massacre occurred last November.

Melee Weapons

Nunchucks, umbrellas and "selfie sticks" have been used successfully as melee weapons to subdue terrorists.

The guy acts like he's being shot with an Airsoft gun. He just keeps popping up.

In the "You can't make this up" department...

Some people wouldn't recognize a hint if it fell out of the sky and smacked them in the face.

Ladies and Gentlemen, the US Secretary of State

I guess all the noise over here woke up the sleeping giant.
http://www.jpost.com/Israel-News/Pol...-crisis-423892
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/wires/reu...avel-soon.html
http://www.israelnationalnews.com/Ne...6#.Vh32pPmqpBc

... and this is par for the course.
http://www.israelnationalnews.com/Ne...9#.Vh32ovmqpBc

And this is what the street says about Abbas:
http://www.israelnationalnews.com/Ne...7#.Vh32d_mqpBd




We already know Fatah (and therefore Abbas) openly support the terrorism. There are rumors that they are doing this now because they are desperate for support from their own constituents, and that the PLO may collapse very soon, either in favor of Hamas, the Islamic Movement (mentioned previously in this thread), or someone else.


EDIT: NousDefions, your picture is displaying correctly now. I don't know why it wasn't displaying when I viewed this thread on a different computer.
UPDATED EDIT: The picture displays in Chrome, but not in FireFox.

New security policies going into effect.

3. The houses of terrorist will be destroyed and there will be no option to rebuilding them.
4. All property of terrorists will be confiscated.
5. Active police force will be enlarged.
6. 300 additional security will be engaged for protecting public transportation in Jerusalem.
7. Additional police and army units will be deployed in cities and on major roads.
8. Additional army units will be deployed along the green line and work will be done to finish the Fence.
- Litvshe

This part sounds like placing one security guard, soldier, or police officer at every bus stop around the city.

UPDATE: Over 1,000 Combat Soldiers Deployed to Jerusalem

The "Islamic Movement" has a face. And it's the face of a criminal who doesn't like to get his hands dirty.

This line from Firefly came to mind when I read his arrest history:

The massive deployment of police and military personnel seems to be effective. Meanwhile, there are also lots of posts circulating Facebook advising people how to boost their Situational Awareness (taking out the earbuds, keeping your eyes off your phone, etc). There have been a few "If you see something, say something!" moments-- some serious, some mundane upon investigation, all taken very seriously.

Today is Friday, so the Arabs are getting their weekly earful of "Kill Jews!" Outside of the cities, Arabs continue throwing rocks at traffic throughout Yehuda/Shomron.

Here's a glimpse into European and American citizens supporting the Arabs.

They are the same people. For example, Mahmoud Abbas funded the terrorists who massacred the Israeli athletes at the Munich Olympics in 1972.

The Oslo Accords provided sheeps' clothing for the wolves.

Depending on how far this goes, it could be worthy of its own thread...
UN Proposes to Deploy Forces as "International Observers" on Temple Mount:

PLO Requests UN Forces on Temple Mount
France (UNSC Permanent Member) Writes Proposal to Deploy "International Observers"
Israel Is Not Happy

This gets especially weird because technically, they might be able to circumvent Israel's position if the Jordanian government and the Waqf invite them.

By the way, meet the US ambassador to the UN:
