Arutz 7: Three Arabs Planned Terror Attack Disguised as Hareidim (Ultra-Orthodox Jews)
Jerusalem District Court convicts three Israeli Arabs for planning attack on event hall in Bayit Vegan, disguised as Jewish guests.
Tova Dvorin, January 6, 2015
The Jerusalem District Court convicted three Arab residents of Jerusalem of conspiring to carry out a terror attack Tuesday, after they were found to have planned an attack on a wedding hall in the Bayit Vegan neighborhood.
The three, named as Anas Awisat, Basel Abidat and Ahmed Sorour, were arrested last month following a joint operation by the Israel Security Agency (ISA or Shin Bet) and the Israel police.
According to Channel 10, the three had been planning on dressing up as hareidi Jews before entering the hall, disguised as guests, and then shooting everyone inside.
Planning for the attack began last December, when two of the defendants decided to carry out the attack, and choose the Nof event hall in the neighborhood because Awisat worked there in the past and said that events there usually include over 1,000 people, allowing them to maim or kill a large number of Jewish Israelis.
They became interested in the purchase of weapons and made contact with a Palestinian Arab arms dealer, who sold them two small machine guns and an Uzi for 50,000 dollars after they raised the necessary funds.
During the month of December 2014 the three traveled with their vehicle to the hall and looked at the building. They examined where the main entrance and where the staff entrance were and what would be the most convenient way to enter the hall, eventually choosing the main entrance - but they were caught before they could carry out the attack.
The conviction highlights an upswing in attacks on Jewish Israelis recently by Arabs who work near major social venues, such as the Har Nof massacre - carried out by terrorists who worked at a nearby grocery and convenience store - and the attempted assassination of Yehuda Glick, which was carried out by a terrorist who worked at the event hall where he was shot.And this was, by far, not the first time Arabs have used a Haredi disguise...

Jerusalem - Residents of the Kiryat Moshe neighborhood of Jerusalem were reeling Friday night after an attempt by Arabs to break into Jewish homes in the neighborhood – dressed as Hareidi Jews. The two “Hareidim” were seen walking around the neighborhood Friday night by residents, and at about 9:30 PM, a resident named Eliran saw the pair attempting to break into an apartment near the Mercaz Harav yeshiva in the neighborhood. He called police, who came within minutes. The Arabs began to ran, and Eliran joined police in chasing them. He nabbed one of the Arabs himself, while police chased down and tackled the second one.
The two were quickly questioned, and they told police that a third member of their gang was awaiting them at the nearby Har Hamenuchot cemetery. Police converged on the site, and he, too was arrested. Residents praised police, and especially Eliran, for his quick thinking and quick action.
In 2008, an Arab invaded the Mercaz Harav yeshiva, opened fire in the school’s study hall, and killed eight young students. Nine others were injured in that terror attack. Police were questioning the Arabs who were arrested Friday night to determine what their plan was, whether they had any accomplices - and how they came to acquire the long frock coats and black hats they were wearing when they were arrested.And less that a month ago...
JPost: Shin Bet thwarts terror cell planning Tel Aviv suicide bombingPalestinian woman planned to use disguise of pregnant Jewish woman to set off explosives belt.
Yaakov Lappin, December 15, 2014
Security forces arrested several Palestinians during October and November on suspicion of planning to carry out a suicide bombing attack in the Tel Aviv region, the Shin Bet announced on Monday.
The suspects include a woman from Jenin, named by security forces as Yasmin Sha’aban, and four residents of the Tulkarm area.
“According to the plot that was hatched, Sha’aban was the designated suicide bomber. She was supposed to carry out the attack with an explosive vest hidden in her clothes while disguised as a pregnant Jewish woman,” the Shin Bet said.
Sha’aban had intended on receiving an entry permit into Israel for medical reasons, and exploit it to carry out a mass casualty bombing of Israeli civilians.
The suspects have confessed to planning the suicide bombing and other terrorist attacks, the Shin Bet said. The suspected bombers were in touch with an operative from Gaza, who helped instruct them on how to assemble explosives, according to the investigation.
Following the arrests, security forces seized a homemade semi-automatic rifle, a hunting rifle, ammunition, and explosives.
The suspects intended to stay in an apartment in Israel used by illegal residents as part of their preparations, the Shin Bet added. There the Palestinian woman was meant to put on her explosives vest and head to the Tel Aviv area.
Hamas and Islamic Jihad planned to claim joint responsibility for the attack, according to the investigation.
However, there is no evidence that the central leaderships of Hamas or Islamic Jihad in Gaza were aware of this particular plot.
The suspects also confessed to planning to bomb a bus carrying soldiers and to kidnap a soldier.
Sha’aban and another suspect have been charged at the Samaria District Court with terrorism offenses.
The arrests underline “the high motivation that exists among terrorist operatives to carry out attacks, with an emphasis on the period after Operation Pillar of Defense,” the Shin Bet said.
The incident also pours light on how Gazan terrorist organizations seek to orchestrate attacks out of Samaria, and how they help would-be terrorists arm themselves and plan attacks.Esser Agaroth (2¢):
We can learn at least three things from the recent plans of Arabs to carry out terrorist attacks against Jews. Or rather, we should have already learned at least three things regarding Arab terrorist attacks, ages ago:

Where's Israel on the map?
1. Arabs do not discriminate between various groups of Jews. Haredi, Mamlakhi, Torah Nationist, Leftist and secular, Jerusalemite and Tel-Avivian, they do not care. They want to annihilate ALL of us from the map.
2. Do we really want to risk the potential consequences to our friends, family, and neighbors, by hiring Arabs,...any Arabs,...to work for us?
3. Should we really be risking the granting of entry permits to Arabs, currenting residing Yehudah and the Shomron (Judea and Samaria), even for medical reasons?
Not that the Israeli Government give a hoot about [the politically-incorrect] halakhah (Torah Law), but, I will mention it anyway...
משנה תורה, הלכות עבודה זרהמשנה תורה
י,א ...אסור לרחם עליהם, שנאמר "ולא תחונם" (דברים ז,ב). לפיכך אם ראה גוי עובד עבודה זרה אובד או טובע בנהר, לא יעלנו; ....ראהו לקוח למות, לא יצילנו....
י,ג [ב] מכאן אתה למד שאסור לרפאות עובדי עבודה זרה, אפילו בשכר; ואם היה מתיירא מהן, או שהיה חושש משום איבה--מרפא בשכר, אבל בחינם אסור....
Mishneh Torah, Laws of Foreign Worship10:1 ...It is forbidden to have mercy over them [goyim], as it is said, "do not have mercy" (Deut. 7:2), therefore if one sees a non-Jewish practiyioner of foreign worship losing his life or drowning in a river, one should not raise him up; ...one who sees him being taken to his death, he should not save him....
10:3  From here you learn that it is forbidden to heal pratticioners of foreign worship, even for pay; but if he is afraid of them, or that there would be any animosity -- he heals him for pay, but for free, it is forbidden....*The Ramba"m uses the term עבודה זרה/practitioner of foreign worship, to identify any non-Jew, who does not keep the Seven Commandments given to No'ah, and his descendants.
4. Next time we are attacks by missiles, we need to finish the job, regardless of pressure from the "international community" not to.
I suppose that my interest in adhering to the Torah, or as many of you will no doubt "my interpretation of the Torah," makes me a racist?
Better a live racist, that a dead idiot.
