Two Muslim women from America were barred from walking down a street in Hebron by Israeli security forces because they were Muslims.
In light of the current Islamic intifada against Israel, can you blame the Israelis?
UPDATE: Despite the fact that this video was most likely staged, Hamas-linked CAIR is demanding that Obama investigate:
Palestinian leaders reacted to Tuesday’s bloody attack by two Muslim terrorist on a synagogue in West Jerusalem by characterizing the synagogue as “a command center” and the murdered victims as “terrorists.” (It’s time to bomb the al-Aqsa mosque to smithereens and replace it with a temple)
CNS News Hamas described the attack as “a quality development in the confrontation with the Israeli occupation.” Hamas spokesman Sheikh Ismail Aal Radhwan called the four murdered rabbis “the greatest terrorists in that racist state,” concluding that “these are no civilians. They are terrorists.” “Blood will be met with blood, killing will be met with killing, and the defiling of the holy places will be met by resistance, and by the heads of the Zionist rabbis, who are the greatest terrorists in that racist state,” Radhwan told Al Quds TV in Lebanon.
“That synagogue is a kind of command center for the planning of acts of aggression against our people and our holy places. This is no prayer synagogue. Otherwise, how can we account for the presence of American and British citizens there?” asked Abu Ahmand Fouad, deputy secretary-general of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine.
Hreka Tube Palestinian internet channel published an animated video, in broken Hebrew, threatening to get rid of all Israelis with continued terror attacks. Hreka Tube specializes in publishing anti-Israeli and anti-Jewish animated songs on social media.

At least four Jewish worshipers are dead, with six or more in critical or serious condition, in the wake of a terror attack at a crowded Jerusalem synagogue Tuesday morning. Economic Minister Naftali Bennett says: “PA leader Mahmoud Abbas has declared war on Israel and we must respond accordingly.”
Algemeiner (h/t Liz) Israeli Police said two Palestinian terrorists entered the Kehilat Yaakov synagogue on Shimon Agassi St. in the city’s religious Har Nof neighborhood at about 07:00 a.m., opened fire with weapons and struck worshipers with a meat cleaver and knives.

Two police officers in the vicinity were able to shoot and kill the assailants. One policeman is in critical condition, in the wake of the attack, and unconfirmed reports said he has succumbed to his wounds. Police have locked down the area, and ground units and helicopters are searching for a third accomplice, Israel Radio said.
Palestinian social media wasted no time in glorifying the attack, with one Facebook poster uploading a grotesque cartoon poster (below) showing the attack, including the terrorists shooting and stabbing worshipers, and piles of bodies.
Police spokeswoman Luba Samri said the attackers were Palestinians from east Jerusalem, which has been the scene of relentless clashes between Israeli police and Palestinian protesters in recent months. She identified the assailants as Ghassan and Oday Abu Jamil from the Jabal Mukaber neighborhood.

“This is the direct result of the incitement being led by Hamas and Abu Mazen [Palestinian Authority – PA President Mahmoud Abbas], incitement which the international community is irresponsibly ignoring,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in comment, and will soon convene security officials to weigh responses. ‘We will respond with a heavy hand to the brutal murder of Jews who came to pray and were met by reprehensible murderers. We will respond harshly,” Netanyahu said.
US Secretary of State John Kerry called Netanyahu to offer his condolences, and called on the PA to clearly condemn the attack. However, no PA officials have publicly responded to the attack, as of this update.
Palestinians dancing in the streets and passing out candies?
Economy Minister Naftali Bennett said Abbas, “who is among the greatest terrorists to incite the Palestinian people, is directly responsible for the Jewish blood spilled. “While we dealt with fantasies about the political process, the Palestinians have prepared an interlocking infrastructure of terrorism and incitement. Even the concept of concrete blocks do not stop terrorism, but rather encourage it,” he said. “Abbas declared war on Israel, and we must respond accordingly,” Bennett declared.
Israel has been on edge with a spate of attacks by Palestinians against Israelis, killing at least six people in Jerusalem, the West Bank and Tel Aviv in recent weeks, prior to Tuesday’s casualties.
Jerusalem residents had already been fearful of what appeared to be lone wolf attacks using cars or knives against pedestrians, but Tuesday’s synagogue assault harkens back to gruesome attacks during the Palestinian uprising of the last decade.
Hamas in Gaza lauded the attack, calling it “heroic.” “There is no solution for the Palestinian question except through Jihad. Islamic Jihad and Fatah also praised the attack, with a spokesman for the latter blaming the Israeli government for the killings.
The two assailants, Uday and Ghassan Abu Jamal, in their 20s, are reportedly relatives of terrorists released in the prisoner swap with Hamas to gain the release of former IDF soldier Gilad Shalit in 2011.
A defiant Palestinian Muslim terrorist, Rasmieh Odeh, was taken into custody after a federal jury in Detroit convicted her of naturalization fraud. Jurors determined Odeh knowingly lied when she failed to tell U.S. immigration officials that she spent 10 years in an Israeli prison, after being convicted in a series of 1969 Jerusalem bombings that killed two people.
Rasmieh Yousef Odeh, 66, spent a decade in an Israeli prison for her involvement in a 1969 attack that involved bombs planted at a crowded Jerusalem supermarket and a British consulate, according to a federal indictment. Only one bomb — one of two placed at the supermarket — exploded, killing the two people and wounding several others. Israeli authorities have said the attacks were planned by the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine.
An Israeli military court sentenced Odeh to life in prison in 1970, but she was released 10 years later in a prisoner exchange with the Popular Front. Israel released 76 prisoners in exchange for an Israeli soldier captured in Lebanon, according to Odeh’s indictment.

A large police force is on the scene,”according tothe Israeli newspaper Haaretz.
The victim was an Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) soldier, according to the Times of Israel newspaper, while Channel 2 claims that young man received a stab wound to the leg. “A young man of about 20 lay in the road adjacent to the Haganah train station,” said senior Magen David paramedic Moshe Amir, who arrived early on the scene. “He was unconscious, had no pulse and was not breathing. There was a huge crowd at the scene.”
There have now been five attacks against Israeli civilians by Palestinians in the last few weeks, which has left three people dead. On November 5, one person was killed and 17 wounded in two separate incidents that involved Palestinian drivers slamming their vehicles into crowds of Israelis.
A truck with Palestinian number plates deliberately crashed into a group of Israeli soldiers, which injured three, as it tried to target a military checkpoint, according to the IDF. Meanwhile, another motorist slammed into pedestrians near the Jerusalem light rail, killing one Border Police officer and wounding 14 others.
On October 22, a three-month-old baby was killed and seven people were injured when a car deliberately crashed into a light rail station in Jerusalem as they were getting off a train. The driver, who was identified as Ibrahim al-Akri, was shot by law enforcement officers as he got out of his car and began to attack civilians in the vicinity with an iron rod.
Tensions have been rising in Jerusalem after Israel blocked access to the Temple Mount, which is Judaism’s holiest site and allegedly Islam’s third holiest site.
