    TheMilitary Court of Appeals has accepted an appeal against the leniency of the sentence handed to Muhammed Awad by the Samaria Military Court, over his part in the brutal murder of five members of the Fogel family in March 2011. Muhammed Awad was originally found guilty of accessory to voluntary manslaughter (the military court's equivalent to murder), failing to prevent a crime, weapons trafficking and conspiracy to carry out a shooting. The military court acquitted Muhammed of the first, most serious charge, finding him guilty only for failing to prevent a crime, as well as the latter two charges, which...

    11-year-old Roi Fogel, whose parents and three siblings were brutally murdered by Arab terrorists in the Shomron town of Itamar in 2011, wants to know why the Israeli government is releasing terrorist murderers. The 11-year-old boy, who survived the brutal terror attack, asked this question over this past Sabbath, as he was celebrating his birthday. Elihai Ben-Yishai, Roi's uncle and the brother of Ruth Fogel hy"d, recalled his nephew's remarks in a conversation on Sunday with Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat. The conversation took place as Barkat visited the bereaved families protesting outside the Prime Minister's residence. "My nephew asked why...

    Jews living in Judea and Samaria (Shomron) have argued for years that many Arabs in the region use the olive harvest as a pretext to prepare the ground for attacks on Israeli communities. The annual harvest often leads to conflict as Arabs and foreign left-wing activists insist on entering Jewish communities to pick olives – including communities where the olive harvest formerly led to fatal terrorism. The IDF provides them with security. Now, a new video filmed by Jews in Givat Ronen, near the Samaria town of Itamar, has revealed Arab “farmers” openly threatening terrorism, while filming Jewish homes and...

    The Military Court in Shomron (Samaria) convicted Yazed Hassan Mohammed Awad on Sunday of assisting the murderers of five members of the Fogel family in Itamar on March 11, 2011. According to the charge sheet against him, Awad gave shelter to some of the people involved in the multiple murders and attempted to obstruct justice by briefing the suspects regarding Shin Bet interrogation techniques. In addition, he held two M-16 weapons that were stolen in the course of the murderous attack. The defendant denied the charges but in view of the evidence, the court decided unanimously to convict him. Knesset...

    The British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) “got it wrong” in its reporting of the massacre of the Fogel family by Arab terrorists in the Jewish community of Itamar, the broadcaster's outgoing director-general admitted at a parliamentary committee hearing. The BBC’s Mark Thompson acquiesced on June 19 while being questioned by Conservative member of parliament Louise Mensch, the London Jewish Chronicle reported. In complaining about the insufficient coverage of the event on BBC radio and television programs, the newspaper reported that Mensch said, “I only found out, after the event, from an American blog, called ‘Dead Jews is no news,’ and the...

    ...... Amjad said that he had initiated the murder in Itamar. "I wanted to carry out a terror attack because I wanted to get rid of this life," he said. "There were problems between me and the family. Two years ago my father used to ask me about the studies, and why I smoked, and he would constantly meddle in my personal matters, so I thought of committing suicide. The way I thought of doing this was to carry out a suicide attack in Itamar." Hakim also took credit for the initiative to murder. "We spoke about another subject, which...

    Two Jewish shepherds from Itamar were injured on the adjacent Arnon Hill (777) on Thursday by a gang of local Arabs wielding clubs and rocks. IDF forces were called to the scene and succeeded in dispersing the Arabs, who were still throwing stones at the shepherds. The scalp of one shepherd was torn open, while the other sustained injuries to his hands and lower body. Both received medical treatment at the scene. Samaria Council head Gershon Mesika said that the incident was a serious one. “It could have ended in a 'lynch' murder by Arabs of the two Jewish farmers....

    The town of Itamar in Samaria has been particularly hard-hit by Palestinian Authority terrorism over the past decade, losing 20 of its 1,000 residents to various attacks. The Fogel family, five members of which were massacred brutally by terrorists as they slept in their beds, lived in Itamar. But in a bizarre twist, residents of the town found themselves accused of being perpetrators of terrorism by Haaretz journalist Neri Livneh in a televised appearance by her last year. Livneh termed Itamar “a settlement populated by particularly violent people,” and claimed, “Someone there commits murder roughly once every two years.” Livneh...

    It takes more than a murderer's knife to kill the Jewish spirit. One year after five members of the Fogel family were brutally stabbed to death, the residents of their small farming community in the West Bank dedicated a new religious school in their honor. Itamar, a quiet hilltop town surrounded by hostile Arab villages, has earned a tragic distinction as "the most wounded community." Since its founding in 1984, a series of terror attacks has killed twenty-two people (including nine children) in a town of just 200 families. Yet after each massacre, the people of Itamar rebuild and replant,...

    An attempt by a Palestinian Authority Arab to enter the community of Itamar on Thursday disguised as a hareidi Jew was thwarted at the last moment. The incident began in the afternoon hours, when the community’s security personnel someone who looked like a Jew wandering near the olive trees adjacent to the community. Itamar’s security coordinator drove to the area, thinking that it was a Jew trying to steal olives. When he reached the olive grove he realized that the man was a disguised Arab. The suspect fled towards the nearby Arab village of Awarta, and was chased by the...

    The Israeli army on Sunday confirmed the recent arrest of two young Palestinian Arabs for the March 11 slaughter of the Fogel family in the northern Samaria Jewish community of Itamar. An army spokesman told Israel Radio that 18-year-old Hakem Awwad and 19-year-old Amjad Awwad confessed to the murders of Udi and Ruth Fogel and three of their young children, and that they showed absolutely no remorse for their crime. Reenacting the murder, the young suspects told security officials that they infiltrated Itamar at around 9 PM armed with knives. They proceeded to enter a home that was empty and...

The interview took place a few hours ago (I missed it) and the transcript was sent to me by one of the participants.

Netanyahu’s eloquent remarks included a demand … that the Palestinian Authority stop the incitement that...

    In a special interview with Israel National News, the IDF Commander of the Judea and Samaria Division, Brigadier General Nitzan Alon, said progress has been made in the investigation of the horrific attack in Itamar, which left a married couple and three of their children dead. Alon said dozens of suspects had been arrested by the Israel Security Agency to clarify their connection to, or involvement in, the murders of the Fogel family. Alon unequivocally rejected claims that removing checkpoints made the attacks possible and put Jewish residents of Judea and Samaria at greater risk, insisting the current IDF doctrine...

    Members of Likud's National Headquarters have called on Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to immediately dismiss Defense Minister Ehud Barak, whom they accuse of advancing policies that directly contributed to the heinous murder of the Fogel family in Itamar. In an interview with Israel National Radio, Shevach Stern of the Likud National Staff said the Prime Minister cannot back-peddle from his government's positions to save Ehud Barak, "We hear this call from many Knesset members. They say it off the record and not for attribution. But everyone understands that Barak has taken over as head of government in various fields, and...

    Most of us surely remember those cute but chilling childhood games played with toy pistols. Sometimes they were packed with nothing more harmful than water or a well-worn plastic bullet, chewed several times over by the family dog. The game always ended when a shrill, childish voice would call out “Bang, bang, you’re dead” and the “victim” would fall to the ground faking death, before running in for lunch. If only all the innocent Jewish men, women and children felled by Arab bullets could just get up off the ground and run in for lunch. But the Palestinians are playing...
