Muslim Terrorists Attempted to Kidnap 8-Year-Old Girl as Hostage

This isn’t anything special. This is just life in Israel.

It happened exactly a year ago.

Shortly after midnight, Yael Shahak and her 8-year-old daughter Chen were returning from a family gathering to their home in Beit El. Suddenly, the car in front of them slowed down. At first, Yael did not understand what was happening. She tried to signal to the driver with her lights, to no avail. The mysterious vehicle stopped in front of her, blocking her way. Yael tried to reverse her car, but the other car also shifted into reverse and drove after her. She tried to go to the right, but the car blocked her again. Four young men, their heads covered with hats and scarves, got out of the car and signaled to Yael to open her car door. When she refused, they began smashing the car windows with metal rods. Shards of broken glass fell on Chen, who had been sleeping.

Luckily for the mother and daughter, another car arrived, driven by Aharon Hass of Maaleh Levonah.

Only a few months ago, it was learned that Yael and her daughter had been saved from a kidnapping attempt in which they were to be used as bargaining chips for the release of Palestinian prisoners. The terrorist cell, which was discovered by the Shin Bet, was headed by Muhammad Manzar Muhammad Ramadan of El-Bireh.

The members of Ramadan’s cell, which belongs to the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, planned their actions well. They bought a taser, tear gas, clubs and a gun-shaped cigarette lighter that looked like a real gun. They planned to hide the kidnap victims in a cave or an apartment in Ramallah, and also planned on filming the kidnapping and uploading the video to the Internet to start the negotiations for their release as soon as possible.

As the article goes on to say, these kidnapping attempts increased in the wake of the disastrous Shalit deal which has provided an incentive for kidnappings.

The terrorist premise once again is that every terrorist is only in jail until he can be traded in for a hostage. That didn’t use to work in the past, but the Hezbollah and Hamas deals were a huge mistake and the price once again is being paid by Israeli civilians. There are reasons that you don’t negotiate with terrorists.

This is one of them.

    Once they got out their car Yael should have run them down and then backed over them and done it again and again

      A perfect hostage for Muslim deviants. If they'd succeeded in kidnapping her and kept her for a year, she would have reached Aisha's age, then they could have had some sexual fun and games with her too.
      Of course, I mean this in jest, but actually I don't, as I would not put anything past these evil, twisted scumbags.
      But yes, you're right of course, running them down would have done humanity a big favor. Four less lowlifes in the World!

        While Muslims are supposed to wait until a girl reaches the age of nine years before they can have full penetrative vaginal sex with her, they may enjoy all forms of non-vaginal-penetrating sex with girls from their age of one day.

        But don't expect our spineless Western leaders or mainstream media to mention this uncomfortable fact.

    The fact of the matter is that jihadists will do what they do best – kidnap, torture and murder. However, it is also the case, Israel's appeasement-oriented leadership continually, tragically and unfathomably whet their appetites! In other words, if one continually gives into their demands, then what incentive is there to cease and desist, despite the heretofore ballyhooed "deterrence" of Israel's security forces –

    Therefore, Israel is led by a ship of fools –

    As depressing and disheartening as it is, it is the G-d's honest truth!

      You are 100% correct. I wish these Muslims would just lay off of Jews…and the rest of us. Jews don't bother anyone that I can see. They are just like anyone else…they have good people, bad people, etc. Muslims act as if the much smaller Jewish community is a threat to them …with their 1.2 billion (or whatever number of Muslims there are) members. The reason Muslims hate Jews so much is that they know they have the REAL God on their side. AND they are smarter – look at all the inventions and medical breakthtoughs Jews have been responsible for. Jews carry their own weight and don't have to be propped up like Muslims have to be by a leftist president who makes NASA's mission to make Muslims 'feel' good. Look at all the good they have brought the world.

    It's just islam, folks. Nothing to see here. Their false prophet, mohamat, inventor of allah the moon god and shatter of the koran would sanction actions like the ones his devout followers were attempting. Can they charge the others with preventing a muslim from performing his religious duties?

    That's in part why we don't hire muslims. We don't shop in their stores, and don't shop where muslims are employed. It's a safety issue. You can't tell by looking at a muslim if they'll explode or attempt to kidnap a child. It's best to just ignore them, and not patronize them.

    "There are reasons that you don’t negotiate with terrorists."

    Hit the nail on the head with this one. And as we know stories like these never make it to the Western media who I found out directly the other day believes that the Terrorist activity in the West Bank has significantly decreased as predicated in the withdrawal deal. Just makes you wonder if this is ignorance, or blatant anti-Semitism.

  • Ben Jabo

    Since this took place a year ago, why are we first hearing about it at this late date?

    • defcon 4

      Maybe Daniel only heard of the event himself recently.

  • JacksonPearson

    This is a classic example of why all Israeli lands, including the West Bank must be purged of Muslims.

      How long before kidnapping goes on here, it may not be to far in the future and for myself
      I have zero tollerance for kidnappers. Were I live kidnappers probably would not live to
      make it to court and the woman would have been armed and shot them dead as it should
      be. Some things just can not be played with and leftists wishing to marshmallow our
      society have delusions where American men still hold the ground……………..William

      • JacksonPearson

        I agree. I feel no tolerance or love for kidnappers either. They're pointedly saying, pay me XXX or I'm going to kill this person. We're getting very close to many tipping points where people are feeling hopeless, angry, and desperate. Just remember, the leftist wrecking ballers have stated that this is just the begging…heaven help us if they mean it!

        • WilliamJamesWard

          I know heaven will not help them, thier time is running out……………….William

            Hang in there, God hasn't failed us yet.

          • David, Thailand

            Doesn't matter if He does fail us, does it? He has enough form for that. But still, there are many idle minds that believe He knows best.

            This is why Islam is destined to triumph over the Judeo-Christian West. While we sit around trusting everything to our god, and blaming ourselves whenever He fcuks up, which is often enough for a reasonable person to begin suspecting He isn't half of what He's cracked up to be, the Muslims credit Allah with the sum of creation but trust him to do absolutely nothing for them, which is why they are at ground level doing it for Him.

            Western civilisation is on the back foot in the face of Islam, and lacks the will to confront and effectively address the dysfunctional ideology. If we are determined to cling to the moral high ground, and refuse to set aside democratic politeness for long enough to respond to a glowworm with a flame thrower, you can pray to your God all you want but your future generations will be praying to Allah five times daily. Oh yes, and they won't be thanking us for our complacency.

    A woman in our town went in to a business owned by a Muslim to exchange an item she had purchased there that did not work. The Muslim screamed at her 'I don't deal with women!!!" 'I don't deal with women!!!!' It scared the woman so bad she just left with the item that she had brought in Her husband wanted to go and clobber the guy, but she talked him out of it. This kind of behavior won't fly too long around here.
    On a related note, ACT! for America will be having a HUGE event September 25th, called 'Americans United to Defend Free Speech.' It is the 224th anniversary of Congress passing the Bill of Rights. It is a pushback against the proposed global UN Blasphemy Law. We have to start pushing back folks or we are going to lose all our freedoms!!!! Check it out here –
