Look what is happening behind the smokescreen of the run-away daily Arab riots and stabbing attacks:
On the Home Front...
Meir Ettinger and Evyatar Slonim were moved to a more permanent situation at another prison.
Three other Jews were arrested on "suspicion" of an "arson attack" that happened a half a year ago.
Another Jew from Samaria was served with a "restraining order" banning him from his home and from making contacting with thirty other people for the next six months.

And BIG SURPRISE: Geologist Reports Major Oil Find in Golan Heights; Firm Stays Mum - Genie Oil executive says discovery points to 'significant' quantities.
...“We’ve found an oil stratum 350 meters thick in the southern Golan Heights,” said Yuval Bartov, the chief geologist of, Genie’s Israeli unit, Afek Oil & Gas. “On average worldwide, strata are 20 to 30 meters thick, and this is 10 times as large as that, so we are talking about significant quantities.”
Genie is controlled by the U.S. millionaire Howard Jonas and its shareholders include the media magnate Rupert Murdoch and Lord Jacob Rothschild.
Oh, and Dick Cheney, too. Enough said.
On the Syrian Front...
Russia launches missiles at 'Isil targets' from Caspian warships as Assad forces start ground offensive (See video there)
Russian warships in the Caspian Sea have launched dozens of missiles into Syria, sharply escalating a military campaign to shield the regime from rebel forces. Travelling more than 900 miles, the missiles struck 11 targets inside the war-torn country, officials said.
EU warships start migrant smuggler...
European warships in the Mediterranean launched a new operation Wednesday to catch migrant smugglers... The military mission dubbed Operation Sophia involves six naval vessels in international waters off Libya with the power to stop, board, seize and destroy traffickers' boats in a bid to curb the worst crisis of its kind since World War II.
Two questions come to mind: might this Russian agression turn at some point towards Israel and are these EU warships actually planning to do double duty in order to be on station for closing the noose around Israel's thin neck?
And as for Chinese involvement in Syria, you really have to look for it. I'm kind of sorry I did...
Putin's boost in battle against ISIS: China preparing to 'team up with Russia in Syria'
Russia has carried out a series of deadly airstrikes against the terrorist group over the last few days and Vladimir Putin has now sent the country's most elite special forces team into the war zone.
And speculation is heightening that offensive will be bolstered by the China's People's Liberation Army, following a number of reports of military movements in the region backed up by strong words from a senior government member at a United Nations meeting.
Reports emanating from the Middle East last week said China was planning on joining the fight against ISIS "in the coming weeks", according to a Syrian army official.
While Beijing insists it will abide by the United Nations (UN) in the region, hints of an action were backed up when it spoke strongly about a coordinated response to the rising terrorist threat.
