The past year has seen a one hundred percent increase in illegal attempts by Palestinians to infiltrate Israel through border crossings around Jerusalem, according to figures published on Thursday by Military Police, Israel’s Walla reported.

According to the report on 2014’s statistics, 3362 individuals tried to enter Israel, compared with 1,545 Palestinians who tried to enter Israel without permits in 2013.

Meanwhile, there was a more than 200% increase in incidents of drivers transporting illegal aliens into the country. In one case in 2014, Military Police discovered a Palestinian hiding in the front part of the vehicle while it was stopped for a routine search at a checkpoint. The driver fled on foot, leaving his vehicle and ID with the soldiers.

UN, Norwegian Government, Distance Themselves From Palestinian Youth Center Named for Terrorist Dalal Mughrabi

The United Nations and the Norwegian government have moved swiftly to distance themselves from a Palestinian youth center named after...

At the crossings, which are operated by soldiers of the Erez Battalion of the Military Police, in the area under the command of Lt. Col. Gil Mamon, over 32 million individuals have passed through into Israel over the years.

According to the latest statistics, in 2013, 324 Palestinians tried to cross through the checkpoints with fake IDs. “There are workshops in the West Bank which make fake Israeli IDs, some of high quality and others of lower quality,” said Lt. Col. Mamon. “The professionalism of the Military Police aids them in identifying forged ID cards, licenses and permits to enter into Israel.”

In the past year, the Military Police have arrested 310 Palestinians posing as Ultra-Orthodox Jews or using real Israeli certificates. This compares to 348 impersonation attempts in 2013, an 11% decline.

In one case last July, an Israeli Arab driver impersonating a Jew was caught, and refused to be searched. Military Police arrested him and discovered he had a bomb in his car. He had connected 13 gas cylinders to pipe bombs, and some of the containers contained a chemical that was similar to nerve agents.

    Thank goodness the bombers are so far out numbered by those just looking to flee Gaza or the West Bank.
    And who can blame them.
    Look at Gaza.
    They are treating their own with such dis-regard can there be any wonder why they flee?
