THE TRUTH ALWAYS COMES OUT IN THE END:
A British television news reporter has revealed that Palestinian demonstrators near the West Bank village of Turmusaya prevented an Israeli medic from providing aid to a Palestinian Authority official who collapsed after he shoved and verbally abused Israeli officers on the scene.
In a live report for the UK’s Sky News broadcaster, Middle East correspondent Tom Rayner reported that Ziad Abu Ein, a convicted terrorist who was appointed by the PA to organize campaigns against Jewish settlements in the West Bank, was lying on the ground “unconscious” after the clash – although separate footage shot by Kremlin broadcaster RT displayed Abu Ein conscious and sitting up after his altercation with the IDF officers.
“When he’s on the floor, an Israeli medic does come up to him, she tries to clear an area around him, but Palestinians pick him up and take him straight to a vehicle,” Rayner said, in footage viewed by The Algemeiner. The medic was “not able to deliver any first aid,” Rayner continued, and Abu Ein was “declared dead when he got to a hospital in Ramallah. Rayner added: "He should never have been moved by the mob that surrounded him, if they had let the Israeli medics attend him as they tired to do, he might be alive today."
A liitle about this ex terrorist known as Ziad Abu Ein (55), a senior Palestinian Authority (PA) official, died in Ramallah on Wednesday after suffering a heart attack during a 300-strong "protest march" in Samaria according to IDF appraisals; reportedly he had high blood-pressure and diabetes.
Abu Ein was a member of Abbas's Fatah movement's Revolutionary Council, which is also known as the Abu Nidal Organization - a recognized terrorist organization in the US for over 20 years.
After a string of bloody terror attacks conducted worldwide in the mid 1980s, the Revolutionary Council was labeled as the world's most dangerous terrorist organization according to the Council on Foreign Relations website. It remains on the US State Department's official list of foreign terrorist organizations, although it is thought to be largely inactive at present.
And Abu Ein's terrorist past is not just a matter of guilt by association.
Abu Ein himself was handed a life sentence in Israel in 1982 after being extradited from the US in 1981 over the murder of two Israelis in Tiberias in 1979. Abu Ein planted the explosives which killed the two - Boaz Lahav and David Lankri.
CHEMICAL ATTACK: A terrorist attacked a father and his four children all under the age of 10 with acid as they drove near Betar Illit, a settlement town south of Jerusalem.
The attackers approached the vehicle and hurled the acid through the window. The father, mother and four children suffered burns but are in stable condition. The attacker went on to chase an additional person with a sharpened screwdriver, was pursued and shot in the leg by an armed civilian. He was then apprehended by police.
The terrorist was identified as Palestinian Jamal Shaharne, and is from the village of Nahalin, just a stone's throw from Betar Illit.

ARAB CHRISTIANS ARE DELIGHTED WITH THE NEW RULING ALLOWING THEM TO JOIN THE ISRAELI ARMY...
Over the summer, the Israeli media highlighted a phenomenon that is both intriguing and encouraging: a movement among Israel’s Christian Arabs advocating that their community be drafted into the Israel Defense Forces, along with the country’s Jewish and Druze citizens.
Historically, Israel’s Arab citizens have been exempted from mandatory conscription. There have been exceptions — many Bedouin, for example, have served with distinction in the IDF — but those who actually volunteer are a tiny minority. At the same time, many Arabs have complained, not without justification, that the exemption marginalizes them, keeping them from participating fully in Israeli life.
That now appears to be changing, against the background of a broader reassessment of the conscription policy. Earlier this year, a Knesset committee headed by Science and Technology Minister Jacob Perry approved measures that would draft the majority of charedi men — another minority that largely has avoided military service — with criminal sanctions waiting in the wings in the case that draft quotas are not met.
