Palestinian restaurant worker convicted of kidnapping and killing 20-year-old Israeli soldier

A Palestinian restaurant worker was convicted of kidnapping and killing Israeli soldier Tomer Hazan, prosecutors in Israel said.

Nidal Ammar, 42, of Beit Amin, lured Hazan to the West Bank and killed him.

Amar’s brother, Nuraddin Ammar, a member of the terrorist group Tanzim, was also convicted in the murder and kidnapping. Nuraddin Amar is serving time in an Israeli prison since 2003, for his involvement in several terrorist attacks.

He persuaded his brother to kidnap the soldier hoping to trade Hazan for his release. As we reported earlier, an Arab man was arrested and will be charged with murder related charges after he killed an Israeli soldier after luring him to the West Bank, according to a statement released by the military.

The suspect, who worked in a restaurant along with the victim, killed the man with the hope of using his body as a means to push for the release of his brother from an Israeli prison, military officials said Saturday.

Lt. Col. Peter Lerner, an Israeli army spokesperson, said the suspect, Nidal Ammar, 42, had confessed to the crime after being arrested on Saturday along with another brother and six others.

Colonel Lerner said Ammar knew the 20-year-old soldier, Sgt. Tomer Hazan, because they had worked together at a restaurant in Bat Yam. Ammar had picked up the soldier in a taxi on Friday in Israel, and had taken him first to a Jewish settlement in the West Bank. Later, he convinced him to go to the neighboring Palestinian village of Beit Amin, where Ammar lived.

Ammar then took Hazan to an open area nearby, killed him and hid his body in a water tank, according to Colonel Lerner, who said Ammar wanted to trade the dead body.

It is not known how Ammar persuaded Sergeant Hazan to go with him, or what kind of relationship they had.
Colonel Lerner said Ammar was married to an Israeli citizen.

The soldier's family notified the internal security service of Israel, Shin Bet, that he was missing about 10:00 pm Friday, according to a military statement.

An investigation was immediately launched involving a large number of military and intelligence officers. On Saturday morning, the army raided Beit Amin, a town of about 1,100 inhabitants, not far from the Green Line separating Israel and West Bank.

Within hours, Ammar led authorities to the body and confessed.

100s of Jewish World War 2 soldiers mark Victory Day in Israel

Hundreds of Jewish World War Two soldiers celebrated Victory Day in Israel, the Tazpit News Agency reported.

The Jewish World War Two veterans of the Allied armies, the majority of whom are from the Former Soviet Union, attended the official Yad Vashem ceremony marking the 69th anniversary of the Allied victory over Nazi Germany.

The ceremony took place at Yad Vashem’s Monument to the Jewish Soldiers and Partisans. Also present were wounded soldiers from the war against the Nazis, underground fighters, Jewish partisans, volunteers from the Yishuv who fought in the British forces, and veterans of the Jewish Brigade, as well as diplomatic representatives and military officials from the Allied countries.

Approximately 1.5 million Jews fought against Nazi Germany in the regular Allied armies including the U.S., the United Kingdom, and Polish armed forces. An estimated 500,000 Jews served in the Red Army during World War Two and 200,000 were killed in combat or as prisoners of war.

Yakov Karasin, originally from Tukum, Latvia, told the Tazpit News Agency that he was injured three times as a soldier in the artillery corps division of the Red Army fighting the Nazis. “I was 17 years old when I was drafted into the Red Army after escaping Latvia from the Nazis,” he said.

Karasin was awarded decorations for his actions in battle including the Order of the Red Star, a military decoration given for bravery in the Soviet Union, which he wore along with other Soviet military medals to the Yad Vashem ceremony on Thursday evening.

“I waited many years to come to Israel,” the 89-year-old great-grandfather told the Tazpit News Agency. “It was always my dream to come to Israel, but it took six long years before the USSR agreed to grant me emigration approval,” he said.

Applying for emigration in the Soviet Union at the time was equal to high treason. Yakov first applied for emigration in 1965 and was subsequently fired from his job. Only after multiple refusals, was the Karasin family finally granted approval in 1971.

At the Yad Vashem ceremony, wreaths were laid by representatives of the Government of Israel, the Knesset, IDF, diplomatic representatives of the Allied countries, as well as representatives of fighter and partisan organizations. Minister of Immigrant Absorption Sofa Landver, took part in the ceremony.

The Israeli Police Orchestra, conducted by Mikhail Gurevich and soloists, participated in the event along with Lieutenant Colonel Shai Abramson, Chief Cantor of the IDF.

Around 5,000 veterans of World War Two reside in Israel today. While Victory Day is marked by the United States and Britain on May 8, the day when the German army officially laid down its arms, Russia celebrates the Nazi surrender on May 9, as confrontations between the German and Soviet army had not ceased until a day later.

The pastor’s trouble began when the Virginia woman offered to sell herself for $200 - and pastor Chris Allen Phillips, 50, agreed.

However, Tonya Farnsworth hatched an evil plan. She set up cameras in her rented apartment, which recorded the two in the act.

She then called Phillips, who was a youth pastor at Mechanicsville Advent Christian Church, and threatened to release the sex videos if he did not give her money. Over the next three months, she called him and sent threatening text messages, demanding money.

The pastor paid her $85,000 from his own money, but she was not satisfied. Farnsworth wanted more money.

That is when the pastor started embezzling money from the church to pay off the woman. He was accused of taking over $87,000 from the church. She received a total of $176,432.12 - according to court documents.

The pastor was arrested and pleaded guilty to embezzlement. He will be sentenced later this year.

The woman was arrested after police found that all the stolen money went out of state to her boyfriend. They also saw her threatening messages. She was charged with extortion.

She was sentenced to 10 years in prison with seven years suspended plus 30 years probation.
