Only in Israel: a new app for android phones lets drivers know if they are about to drive into a mob of Arabs armed with firebombs and rocks.

Such ambushes have killed and maimed many Israelis over the years, including a baby girl, Adelle Biton, who has been barely clinging to life in the Schneider Children's Hospital since last month.

As reported exclusively on the Tamar Yonah Show, The app was invented by a person who prefers to be identified only by the name Elad, and is being offered for free. To download the mp3 right-click here.

It may not work for iPhones.

The app will warn you if you are driving towards an Arab mob, a rock attack, Molotov cocktail attack, etc. It is based upon real-time reporting of security incidents by drivers.

It will also let you know if you are driving into the Palestinian Authority by mistake, a problem with GPS systems that are not geared to Israel and advise the shortest route between two places which may mean going through a PA area.
