An 11-year-old girl was seriously wounded in a Palestinian firebomb attack on her car near Maalei Shomron in the West Bank on Thursday while her father suffered minor burn injuries.

At around 6:30 pm, medic Yair Yitzchaki, a volunteer for the United Hatzalah rescue service, raced towards the burning vehicle and found the young girl with third degree burns to over 50 percent of her head and upper body. Working with IDF medical evacuation teams the girl was then transported to the burn center at Israel’s Tel Hashomer hospital.

IDF units, operating in close coordination with local rescue units, alerted nearby medics of the burning car. Israel’s Ynet News reported that the vehicle was hit by a Molotov cocktail thrown by Palestinians.

IDF forces that arrived at the area shortly after the paramedics, began searching for the perpetrators in the area between Ma’ale Shomron and the Palestinian town of Qalqilya.

    Allyn Fisher-Ilan cannot hide her hatred for Israeli Jews even if it’s an 11 year-old girl.

    Reuters is already blaming the victim of the attack using hostile language in this article:

    http://www.reuters.com/article/2014/12/25/us-mideast-palestinians-israel-idUSKBN0K30NE20141225

    “A firebomb attack on a car in the occupied West Bank left an 11-year-old Israeli girl severely burned and her father injured on Thursday, the Israeli military said.”

    “The military did not say whether the victims of the attack were settlers, who are bitterly resented by many Palestinians.”

    Kahane was right.

  • Obama’s relations with Israel and other Nations
    Obama has no respect from many of the International community. Obama has no credibility, he has the least experience in real politics, he is the worst president the U.S. has ever had.
    Obama has alienated many nations and has caused foreign policy damage that is costing the American taxpayer trillions.
    Obama has abused his executive powers and should be prosecuted for his violations. Obama is ignoring the true sovereignty of the Jewish people in Israel and the various treaties and international agreements entered into after WWI and the various congressional resolutions on behalf of Israel and the Jewish people since WWI. Obama’s blatant disrespect of Netanyahu and Israel’s International legitimate rights shows his naivety in International matters and foreign policy.
    Obama’s lack of etiquette is an outright embarrassment to the United States.
    Natanyahu is trying his best, but he will not compromise the security of Israel and that is the way a leader should perform.
    It is interesting to note, that Jordan is a country that never existed in history before WWI and nobody is contesting its legitimacy or territorial sovereignty and control. The same powers that established 21 Arab States plus Jordan after WWI, Established the State of Israel based on the Balfour Declaration and the San Remo Treaty of 1920.
    On the other hand, Israel and its Jewish people have over 4000 year history.
    Many Nations and people are questioning Israel’s control of its liberated territory. No one is mentioning that the Arab countries had ejected about a million Jewish people from their countries, confiscated their homes and assets to the tune of over 990 billion dollars and over 650,00 of these Jewish people were resettled in Greater Israel. The Land the Arab countries confiscated from the Jewish people 120,000 sq. km. which is over 4 times the size of Israel, and its value today is over 15 trillion dollars.
    Let the 21 Arab countries resettle the Arab Palestinians in the land they confiscated from the Jews which is 4 times the size of Israel. Provide them with funds they confiscated from the million Jewish people they expelled and let them build an economy, This will benefit both the Arab-Palestinians and the hosting countries, The other alternative is relocate the Arab-Palestinians to Jordan, (originally land allocated for the Jewish people) which is already 80% Arab-Palestinians, and give them funds to relocate and build an economy. This will solve the Arab-Palestinians refugee problem once and for all. It will also reduce hostility and strife in the region.

    If this is not discrimination against Israel, I do not know what is.
    It seems like nobody cares about land violations in other countries in the world, but when it comes to Israel, everyone has a say. Israel’s rights in the terms of the treaty of San Remo of 1920 are in affect in perpetuity, it clearly states that the Jewish people are the only ones with political rights in the British Mandate of Palestine and that the Jewish people can live anywhere in the British Mandate.
    If the U.S., Europe and other countries will stop meddling, and stop its criticism and involvement in the politics of Israel and the Arabs, than there will be a chance for peace.
    We know the great powers are only interested in the OIL and nothing else, that is the bottom line.
    A true and lasting peace in Israel will bring mammoth economic prosperity to The Israelis and The Arabs alike.
    An approach to peace starts by teaching your children and the people not to hate and condemn any acts violence that hurts civilian population and stop celebrating and rewarding the death and destruction of each other.

    It will be interesting to see how the press will convolute this attack as somehow being the victims’ fault. If the attackers are found, I hope they resist so they can be shot dead.

  • howiej

    Anyone found with a Molotov cocktail in their possession should be shot dead.

  • Mireille Mechoullam

    It will never ends till Israel does the right thing which is expelling these monsters out the country including all the members of their families. NO EXCEPTION.

  • Heinous atrocities of this kind have to be met with revenge.An eye for an eye and a life for a life.This is good old bible.May be this will be the language the PALIS WILL UNDERSTAND!There is no sense in dealing with inhuman people, observing humanistic rules.Just like a killerdog is no pet, they are not the ones to deal with going by these humanistic rules.

    . Israeli Police Shoot 5-year-old Boy In The Face

    by IMEMC News & Agencies Wednesday December 24, 2014 21:13

    Israeli forces in occupied East Jerusalem shot 5-year-old Muhammad Jamal Ubeid in the face with a rubber-coated steel bullet, Wednesday afternoon, as he was exiting a school bus on his way home.

    The incident is said to have taken place in the East Jerusalem village of al-Issawiya, where Muhammad’s family lives.

    The uncle stated that Muhammad and his 14-year-old sister had just stepped out of a school bus and were walking home when Israeli forces shot him. He also said that there had been no confrontations at all, in the area, at the time of the shooting.

    Muhammad was evacuated to Hadassah Medical Center, on Mount Scopus, where medical sources said the boy suffered a fracture in the bone just below his eye. He was later transferred to Hadassah Medical Center in West Jerusalem, for treatment.

    An Israeli police spokesman did not return a request for comment, according to Ma’an.

      Once again, Palestinians throwing rocks, Molotov cocktails, and explosives were clashing with police. Why would a school bus stop amid this and allow passengers to disembark?

      Why “honnest comment”?

  • Michael Chenkin

    The Algemeiner is generally a very fine paper, but why are Yehuda and Shomron referred to as the West Bank? Using this false and anti-Semitic label is giving implicit approval of and endorsement to the attackers. With “friends” like the Algemeiner, who needs enemies?
