Muslim doctor in Michigan performed repulsive genital mutilation on many girls

A Muslim doctor in Michigan was arrested, along with at least a few other people, for performing Female Genital Mutilation on a considerable number of girls, and it turns out the damage is even worse than initially assumed:
The Detroit Free Press reported Thursday that documents obtained by the paper show much more serious mutilation of Dr. Jumana Nagarwala’s alleged victims’ genitals than the doctor admitted.

The arrests of Dr. Nagarwala and two others last week represent the first federal female genital mutilation (FGM) investigation in United States history. FGM is common in the Islamic world, particularly in Africa. According to UNICEF, 98 percent of Somali girls and 87 percent of Egyptians have endured the procedure. FGM involves removing varying amounts of the victim’s — usually a pre-pubescent girl — clitoris, labia majoria, and labia minora. In its most extreme form, the victim is “infibulated,” having virtually all her external genitalia removed and being sewn up, leaving her with only a tiny hole from which to urinate and menstruate.

Nagarwala’s attorney, Shannon Smith, claimed in her initial court hearing that no cutting of the seven-year-old alleged victims took place and that excess skin was simply scraped off to be buried in a religious ceremony. The Free Press, however, reports that documents they reviewed show the injuries to the two Minnesota girls’ genitals were “much more severe” than Nagarwala is claiming.
The practice is as dangerous as it's repellent to women's health. The doctor was never qualified to be one in the first place and should be imprisoned for life, not to mention get her citizenship permit revoked.

They won't solve the problem if they stick to "boomerang effects"

The chief rabbi in Ramat Gan wants to help homosexuals overcome same-sex mentality:
In the wake of Rabbi Yigal Levinstein's offensive comments about gays and about women serving in the military, another important rabbi has taken a public stance against homosexuals.

Chief Rabbi of Ramat Gan Yaakov Ariel, addressing the topic of same-sex parents, declared this week that "a normal family is based on a father and a mother."

Speaking at a conference titled Kdushim Tehiyu ("Be Holy") sponsored by the Association of Community Rabbis in Israel to discuss LGBTQ issues, Ariel said, "The human race was created as families, and this is normative. People who managed to escape this [homosexuality] should hold pride parades. Community rabbis must help people who are grappling with it."

Ariel continued, "There is no substitute for a normative family. This is a holy term according to the Torah. Today, an atmosphere could be created in which a normative person is someone who has no home and no natural family.

"This is a phenomenon that exists. Some of the reasons for it could be biological or psychological, but we must aspire to fix the problem. But in recent years aberrations have become the norm, and people who don't establish normal families are holding pride parades.

"A person who is aware that he has a problem and wants to solve it is on the right path. But not everyone has the spiritual strength [to do so], and our job is to help them, because there are many miserable people who have no place in either male or female society.

"Despite us rabbis being attacked and accustomed to wearing flak jackets, we have an obligation to speak the truth. We are obligated to save humanity from the disaster it is bringing down upon itself," Ariel said.
Yes, they do, but here's a challenging query: what do they propose, psychologically or otherwise, in order to persuade homosexuals to change their lifestyle/mentality and be able to find the opposite sex appealing, as normal people do? If they're opposed to men listening to women sing, for example, at a concert, or hear a lecture at a college by a woman, not to mention going out on dates and looking at pictures of the opposite sex, then I don't see why they're supposedly worried. If they keep up that gender segregation crap, they shouldn't be shocked when it leads to what they're supposedly trying to fix.

Lev Tahor ruled to be a dangerous cult

An Israeli court's made an important judgement on the Islamicized Haredi cult now residing in Guatemala after they fled Canada:
The Petah Tikva Magistrate’s court ruled on Tuesday that the Lev Tahor ultra-Orthodox sect living in Guatemala is a “dangerous cult” that is abusing children.

“Based on the conduct of the sect toward minors, it’s sufficient to call this group a dangerous cult that severely damages the physical and emotional well-being of the children of this community,” Judge Rivka Makayes wrote in her ruling, according to Hebrew media reports.

Makayes called on state authorities to take action in order to return the children held illegally by the sect. While the verdict has no jurisdiction in Guatemala, it reflects an official position of the state toward those considering joining Lev Tahor.

The court ruling comes in response to a petition filed by the attorney general and several relatives of sect members.

The decision cited severe physical abuse, marriage of minors to spouses decades their elder, separation of children from their parents, denial of formal education and expulsion from the community of minors who do not conform to group’s rules as reasons behind her decision.

The judge added that members of the community are subject to decrees of long periods of fasting if the leading rabbi’s guidelines aren’t followed.

In order to reach her decision, Makayes relied on previous court rulings as well as the testimony from rights organizations that have investigated Lev Tahor in the past.

Makayes agreed with the petition that asked to categorize the ultra-Orthodox children illegally taken by their parents to Guatemala to join the group as “at-risk” minors.

While the ruling will have little effect on those already in Central America, Makayes hoped the decision will dissuade other ultra-Orthodox families from joining the group.
I think if an arrest warrant is issued for their overlord, that can help, ditto if authorities do what they did earlier, and remove more of the children from the clan's clutches. They'll also have to be on alert for if the cult decides to flee once more to another destination they think they can exploit for their abusive conduct.

And it's shameful that the mayor of a Guatemalan village who expelled such a repellent bunch is now being sentenced to serve in jail, all because they were worried about what a bad omen the cult happens to be.

The time's come to shut down Lev Tahor's operations and arrest their ringleaders.

Marine Le Pen wins over factory workers in Emmanuel Macron's hometown

Le Pen, who in the second election round has stepped down as official head of the Front National, went to visit factory workers at a plant in Macron's hometown of Amiens, and won them over, while he, by contrast got a negative reception. It made headlines so big even the New York Times had to take notice:
France’s presidential contest moved on Wednesday to an unlikely arena: a tumble dryer factory in the country’s north where, if the far-right candidate, Marine Le Pen, did not quite humiliate her rival, Emmanuel Macron, she sure upstaged him.

Workers at the plant, run by Whirlpool in Mr. Macron’s hometown, Amiens, have been striking to prevent the factory from closing. Far from being welcomed as a favored son, Mr. Macron was jeered and booed by a hostile crowd as tires burned, while Ms. Le Pen paid a surprise visit and was greeted with hugs and selfies as activists with her National Front party distributed croissants.

Their separate visits, covered live on French television, showed how Ms. Le Pen’s anti-globalization message resonates in regions struggling with factory closings and the loss of jobs, as well as the hostility that many workers feel for Mr. Macron, a centrist former investment banker who wants to loosen labor rules.

The contrasting styles, policy approaches and loyalties of the candidates, who face each other in a runoff election on May 7, were on full display in Amiens, sometimes painfully so.

Mr. Macron met first with a few union representatives from the factory at the local chamber of commerce; Ms. Le Pen beat him to the plant itself.

Mr. Macron said that he could not stop companies from firing workers, but that he would fight to find a buyer for the plant or to retrain workers. Ms. Le Pen promised to save the plant and the nearly 300 jobs there that are supposed to be shifted to Poland next year, and said she would discourage companies from moving jobs abroad with a 35 percent tax on any products imported from plants that are outsourced from France.

One of Mr. Macron’s supporters, the writer and economist Jacques Attali, said in an interview on French television that the case of the Whirlpool factory was an “anecdote,” meaning a detail in the wider context of France’s economy.

“The president of the Republic isn’t here to fix every individual case,” Mr. Attali said.

Of course, it was no detail to the people who work there, and campaign officials for Mr. Macron, who has sometimes been criticized as lacking empathy for working people, had to scramble to distance themselves from the comments.

It was just one example of how Mr. Macron, 39, who has never held elected office and is running against a political veteran, was on the back foot all day.

Ms. Le Pen, 48, praised the Whirlpool workers for “resisting this wild globalization,” and, taking a page out of the populist playbook of President Trump, she promised that the plant would not close if she were elected.

“When I heard that Emmanuel Macron was coming here and that he didn’t plan to meet the workers, that he didn’t plan to come to the picket line, but that he was going to shelter in some room at the chamber of commerce to meet two or three handpicked people, I considered that it was such a sign of contempt for what the Whirlpool workers are going through that I decided to leave my strategic council and come see you,” Ms. Le Pen said at the site.

Mr. Macron, speaking at a news conference after meeting with the union representatives, shot back that Ms. Le Pen would fix “nothing” if elected, arguing that her protectionist proposals would destroy more jobs and that she was “making a political use” of the Whirlpool workers. Still, he announced quickly that he would visit the plant, too.

He arrived at the site surrounded by a giant, jostling scrum of journalists with cameras and microphones as he tried to talk with the crowd of workers around him.

Black smoke from burned tires lingered in the air, and some of Ms. Le Pen’s supporters cried out, “Marine for president!”

“Why didn’t you come before?” one worker shouted at Mr. Macron. “You are in favor of globalization,” another said, critically.

“I didn’t come here to promise the moon,” Mr. Macron replied. “When Marine Le Pen comes here to tell you that we have to leave globalization, she is lying to you.”

The workers did not seem convinced. One man joked that Mr. Macron was a “copy-paste” of President François Hollande, a highly unpopular Socialist who failed to significantly reduce France’s unemployment rate. In the 2012 presidential race, Mr. Hollande sought blue-collar support at a threatened steel plant in Florange in northeastern France, but unions later accused him of betraying them after the plant’s blast furnaces were kept idle.

It was not Mr. Macron’s first tense encounter with union workers or protesters. Last year, he was targeted by egg-throwing union activists in an eastern suburb of Paris, and he famously told a T-shirt-wearing protester in southern France — who had heckled him about his suit — that “the best way to pay for a suit is to work.”
But how can they work if he can't ensure the businesses they work for will be able to continue without too many financial problems? Without good economy and policies, not to mention safety at a time when Islamic terrorism is holding the country hostage in its grip, it won't be possible. Le Pen had a good idea to pay a direct visit to the employees, unlike Macron, who went first to some cozy little office instead of the workers themselves. There's no telling so far if her campaign for president will succeed, but so far, she's doing a pretty good job.

Austria's far-left president advocates oppression of women with headscarves

Alexander van der Bellen, the far-left president of Austria, is no true friend to the fairer sex:
Austria’s far-left president, Alexander Van der Bellen, has suggested that one day all women must wear headscarves to fight Islamophobia.

During a talk to students, Van der Bellen said that whilst be believes a woman should wear “whatever she wants”, should Austria’s “rampant Islamophobia continue, there will come a day when we must ask all women to wear a headscarf – all of them! – out of solidarity towards those who do it for religious reasons”.

Van der Bellen, who was sworn in as president in January after defeating anti-mass migration Freedom Party candidate Norbert Hofer in last December’s presidential re-run, has spoken of his support for abolishing national borders and creating a federal Europe, describing it as a “project of peace”.
It's a good thing his role is only symbolic. The Austrian government recently approved laws banning burkas/niqabs in public, and he should be ashamed of himself for condoning non-integration along with a misogynist custom. Look how he even used "peace" talk not unlike what the nazis were using in the 1930s. All he's done is provide proof that the nazis, contrary to liberal claims of yore, were leftists.

French police blow up suspicious car near synagogue in Metz

Though the car didn't turn out to have a bomb inside, there was reason for worry:
Police in the French city of Metz have blown up a car parked outside of a synagogue as the country remains on edge, fearing fresh terror attacks.

Police say the vehicle was suspiciously parked near the entrance of the Metz synagogue, located on the Rue du Rabbin Élie Bloch, in close proximity to the centre of the city. The car was, according to authorities, reported stolen so police executed two controlled explosions in case there were any explosives hidden in the vehicle, Le Parisien reports.

The incident turned out to be a false alarm but has highlighted the tension amongst French police and security services.

After the fatal shooting of a police officer in central Paris last Friday, authorities are increasingly nervous about the possibility of radical Islamic terrorism and potential attacks during the French presidential elections.
And they have valid reason to be. The terrible part is that the legal system is so badly set up, it's allowed utter incompetence and criminals all but getting away with their crimes.

Steve King's right: without France/Europe, it would be bad for America, and Israel

France24's talked about Marine Le Pen's supporters over in the United States, and she has some here in Israel too, who support her bid for presidency because there's many innocents in danger over in Europe, and also because American interests are at stake too:
When far-right National Front leader Marine Le Pen Marine made it through to the run-off of the French presidential election on Sunday, some powerful people in the United States were celebrating.

From Trump Tower to the US Congress, Le Pen has established her own circle of trust in the United States. And though Le Pen and Donald Trump have yet to meet in person, the National Front (FN) candidate and the US president have more than a few things in common.

But they came very close to crossing paths in January.

“Welcome, welcome to Trump Tower,” said Italian-born George – or Guido – Lombardi as he opened the door to his one-bedroom flat on the 63rd floor. The view of Central Park was stunning, and until three months ago Trump shared the same vista, although three floors further up. First Lady Melania Trump and their son Barron still live in Trump Tower.

Lombardi hosted a fundraiser for Le Pen in this very apartment when Trump was still president-elect. She met businessmen, real estate brokers and potential donors. Among them were Americans, Israelis, Indians and Russians, according to Lombardi. Trump did not attend but the end result was satisfying to Le Pen: Lombardi suggested that she received numerous donations for her campaign.
And the reason there are Israelis supporting her campaign? Simply put, while there are some policies she has that are questionable, she has made efforts to establish dialogues and be welcoming (Makor Rishon interviewed her a few weeks ago) to Israeli sources. And, she's got some Congressmen over in the USA who're in favor of her candidacy as well:
A case in point is Republican Congressman Steve King of Iowa. He was the first US member of Congress to publicly endorse Marine Le Pen for the presidency of France when he spoke to me earlier this month. King has spoken his mind since he was elected to the House of Representatives in 2002, but he now appears to do so with even more panache. His anti-immigration tirades are loud and proud. He is a man emboldened by the victory of Donald Trump. His support for Le Pen was the logical next step.

In his office – which sported a confederate flag on the desk and not one but three copies of Geert Wilders’ book, "Marked for Death: Islam's War Against the West and Me" – King waxed lyrical about Le Pen’s vision for France and for Europe.

King has met Le Pen twice, both times in Paris. He says Western civilisation is being eroded and only a Le Pen win can stop a situation in which “churches are being replaced by mosques”.

“I’m not one to give advice to the French, but I’m really glad that they produced a lady like Marine Le Pen,” said King. “I’m one who admires her love of her country, her love of French culture, the French language, the things that the French have to be proud of.”

For King, this presidential election is the last chance to stop what he calls “an almost uncontrollable immigration flow that must be controlled or France will no longer be French”.

But the Iowa congressman foresees an even bigger ideological clash: “I’m very concerned that our civilisation itself could be subsumed in a generation or two. Through that lens is how I see Marine Le Pen.”

“If we should lose France, and if we should lose several other countries throughout Western Europe, America will be next.”
He has a point. How can we expect to defend America - and also Israel - if we don't defend France, the country that gave us the Statue of Liberty in the late 19th century? And consider: allowing France - or anywhere else in Europe already plagued by Islamofascism - to fall would not only be allowing Islam to gain another foothold in the world, it would also be allowing another spot on which the invaders could build more nuclear arsenals, among other things, that could be used to attack the USA and Israel, along with anywhere else the Moors declared haram.

Look though, at how the channel's trying to make King sound like he's literally against all immigrants, and must be trying to make it sound like he's got a Confederate flag for all the wrong reasons. That's shameful on their part.

Besides some of the endorsements in the US, this article also notes she got support from European Jews:
Flanagan sees his job as improving Le Pen’s tarnished reputation. Her controversial image precedes her, even in the United States.

Anti-Semitism was a hallmark of her father Jean-Marie Le Pen’s political life; he was a presidential candidate himself in 2002. Flanagan’s solution was to tell Le Pen’s advisers to get endorsements from Jewish leaders in France.

Roger Cukierman, the head of the Representative Council of France’s Jewish Institutions (Crif), famously said in 2015 that Marine Le Pen was "personally blameless” for the National Front's anti-Semitism but that the FN was “to be avoided as a party”.

“To their credit, they understood that and they got statements from Mr Cukierman and others in France to say very positive things about Ms Le Pen,” said Flanagan. “That helped a lot with their American counterparts.”
And it's a good thing. That's not something many news outlets here have reported, if at all.

While we're on the topic, Le Pen's also taken Francois Fillon to task for his bizarre endorsement of Emmanuel Macron:
During a visit to the international market in Rungis Tuesday, anti-mass migration candidate Marine Le Pen called conservative former Republican candidate François Fillon’s immediate endorsement of Emmanuel Macron an act of “treason” against his supporters.

Ms. Le Pen visited the famous international market in the southern Paris suburb and talked to media about a number of issues including the endorsement by Fillon of Macron. During a breakfast consisting of coffee and croissants, she slammed Fillon saying she could understand how many of his supporters could feel let down by his immediate endorsement of pro-globalist Macron on Sunday evening, Le Figaro reports.

“These are the people who defended their candidate in extremely difficult conditions and who were rewarded by listening to their candidate at 8:02 pm saying that we must vote for Mr. Macron,” she said adding: “Do you realise the feeling of betrayal of these people?”

The endorsement of Macron by Fillon took many observers by surprise by how quickly he endorsed the En Marche candidate after realising that he could not progress to the second round.
The point is valid. If Fillon's really against importing terrorism into France, for example, why would he just throw his support immediately in favor of a candidate whose own platform on the subject is very bad? He should've told the constituents they were welcome to decide where to go from there in voting. Instead, he made himself out to look like he didn't have a clear path. I got the impression from one of his previous TV debates that he didn't support Brexit either.

And let's not forget that, whatever Le Pen's own mistakes, Macron made a serious boo-boo himself last year when he attacked Jewish schools. Any willingness on his part to allow Muslim migrants into the country who could proceed to commit violence against innocents is also wrong. If we want to prevent further bloodshed, we have to ensure that a candidate who can oppose trojan horses will get our support.

Whatever the election results though, I think it's clear that western forces will have to go to war in order to protect innocents and other vital interests. In which case, I hope that all concerned and fit for the job will be willing to enlist in the army and stand up to the Islamic monsters.

The allied forces during WW2 have to shoulder blame for not acting sooner

Benjamin Netanyahu made a crucial point about why the Holocaust happened:
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday slammed western powers during his speech on Holocaust Remembrance Day, saying that Allied powers knew of the atrocities happening to Jews in death camps and had they have acted on that knowledge they would have saved the lives of four million Jews and millions of others.

The prime minister cited newly released documents from the UN that show the Allied forces were aware of the extent of the Holocaust in 1942 – two and half years earlier than previously assumed.

It was a “chilling revelation,” Netanyahu said.

“If the powers in 1942 had acted against the death camps — and all that was needed was repeated bombing of the camps — had they acted then, they could have saved four million Jews and millions of other people,” he said at the official state Yom HaShoah ceremony at the Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial in Jerusalem.

“When terrible crimes were being committed against the Jews, when our brothers and sisters were being sent to the furnaces,” he said, “the powers knew and did not act.”

According to Netanyahu, the Holocaust was the result of three elements coming together: a deep hatred of the Jews, global apathy to the horrors that occurred, and “the terrible weakness of our people in the Diaspora.”

Anti-Semitism had not disappeared, and neither was it likely to in the foreseeable future, he said. It was made worse by Iran and the Islamic State, he added. This was to be the only mention of the Islamic republic in his speech, a marked departure from previous years in which he would single out Iran several times.

Global indifference was still alive today too, Netanyahu said.
Yes, and that indifference is exactly what's turned several areas in Europe into hellholes, as self-hating European politicians turn against their own populations. It's considerable damage that's going to take ages to repair, and until then, the chances of another world war are very possible.

Here's more about Netanyahu giving a stern warning Islamofascist countries like Iran.

Emmanuel Macron attacked Jewish schools

Since we're talking about the French election, any Jews in France who overlook this disturbing news from several months ago, which did cause some anger, will be making a big mistake:
French presidential hopeful and former Economy Minister Emmanuel Macron sparked an uproar in the French Jewish community, following the publication of an interview earlier this month of an interview touching upon religious schools in France.

[...] Speaking with Marianne earlier this month, Macron warned of the influence of religion in French schools generally and decrying Jewish schools for emphasizing the Torah.

“It is very important to maintain neutrality in the public sector,” Macron said. “Religion cannot be present in school. But I hear few people becoming concerned by the consequences of this phenomenon, [with] more and more children being sent to religious schools which teach them to hate the Republic and teach mainly in Arabic, or,” Macron added, “in other places [Jewish schools] teach the Torah more than general studies.”
That kind of talk could easily suggest Jewish schools are no different than Muslim schools. Far from it, and most Jewish schools in France have some of the best students in various other subjects too. That Macron would make such a superficial claim only does more damage, and puts his sincerity further in doubt. Here's some of the French language interviews on Marianne and La Croix.

Since we're on the subject, the UK Telegraph says Macron would also be bad for Brexit:
Barring an unforeseen electoral earthquake, the centrist Emmanuel Macron now looks set fair to become the next president of France in two weeks’ time.

As the leader of one of the EU’s two most powerful nations, Mr Macron will have a key role in formulating the European Union’s attitude to Brexit when talks get underway after the UK’s General election on June 8.

Theresa May has been clear that she does not want the EU or the euro to unravel - a near-certainty were Marine Le Pen to win the Elysee Palace - but while a Macron presidency brings stability, the 39-year-old former banker has promised to drive a hard bargain with Britain.
Worse is the hard bargain he'll drive with his own country, since his positions on safety and security for the public are uncertain.

And, if it matters, what about his affair and marriage with a former teacher of his, Brigitte Trogneux, when he was 16 years old, at a time when he was still underage and she was in her late 30s? His defense for this was:
“Nobody would call it unusual if the age difference was reversed,” he said. “People find it difficult to accept something that is sincere and unique.”
No, he's missing the point. In the USA, if an older teacher has an affair with a student who's under 18, it's considered illegal, and she would've been arrested and charged for violating statutory laws. The same goes for if a male teacher did the same with an underage girl. So what's his point? What he's done is an embarrassment, even if it's nothing compared to his fishy policies on security for the country and combating terrorism, which he doesn't seem to have a clue what to do about.

Marine Le Pen makes it to 2nd round of French election, with Emmanuel Macron as rival

The results of the first round are in, with some results giving Le Pen nearly 4 percent more in results than Emmanuel Macron. I'll have to admit, it's a shame that Francois Fillon didn't make it, because Macron's proven himself untrustworthy already.

Yet Fillon, in his defeat, isn't making a good impression upon himself, if, according to the reports I've seen, he said he'd support Macron in the second round. Does Fillon actually believe in his own platform, or doesn't he? Yes, I think it's idiotic to just go and throw support behind somebody who's bound to be an extension of Hollande's own disastrous government.

For now, we have to hope Marine Le Pen can win the presidency on the second round, and that nobody will be fooled by Macron's own deceptions.

4 stabbed by Muslim in Tel Aviv

Another stabbing by an Islamofascist in the Tel Aviv area:
Four people were stabbed in northern Tel Aviv Sunday afternoon inside a hotel lobby and on a nearby beachfront popular with tourists.

The victims included three men, two in their 50s and one in his early 70s, and a woman in her early 50s.

The four were treated on the scene by United Hatzalah and MDA paramedics before being evacuated to Ichilov Hospital in Tel Aviv. The injuries sustained by all four victims have been listed as light.

United Hatzalah emergency responder Yossi Eckler described the scene of the attack.

"When I arrived at the hotel, we found two men and one woman lightly injured in the lobby. They were suffering from wounds in their upper body. While treating them together with other EMTS from the ambu-cycle unit who arrived after me, we were told of another wounded man outside of the hotel. EMTs promptly ran to treat him as well."

Police have taken an 18-year old Arab man suspected in the attacks into custody. Authorities say the suspect is a resident of the Palestinian Authority.

The suspect acknowledged his crimes during interrogation, and claimed the attack was nationalistically motivated, confirmed suspicions the incident was indeed a terror attack.
There's a video clip over here. Be warned that it's graphic.

Israel honors Holocaust Memorial Day

It's time now for this year's Holocaust Memorial:
As the sun begins to set this evening, ushering in Israel's Holocaust Remembrance Day, the atmosphere will change. Slowly, the quotidian routine will give way to reflection as businesses and leisure venues close to allow the nation to honor the memory of the 6 million Jews murdered in the Holocaust.

The official events will start at 8 p.m. with the main ceremony at Yad Vashem Holocaust Memorial in Jerusalem, at which President Reuven Rivlin and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu are scheduled to speak. Yad Vashem Chairman Avner Shalev will light the memorial flame, and Holocaust survivor Esther Meron will speak in the name of all the survivors.

During the ceremony, six other survivors will light six torches, each one representing 1 million victims: Moshe Ha-Elion, Moshe Jakubowitz, Jeannine Sebbane-Bouhanna, Moshe Porat, Max Privler, and Elka Reines-Abramovitz.
Read the whole article for more. And see also this article about how the Arab/Islamic world has nothing but contempt for victims.

Update: also see this article about why it's up to 3rd generation descendants of survivors to record their biographies now.

Israel's president stands with Egyptian Christians

Reuven Rivlin came out in support of persecuted Christians following the terrorist attack at a church in Egypt that left dozens of people dead (Hat tip: Breitbart):
Israeli President Reuven Rivlin said the persecution of Middle East Christians was “a stain on humanity,” during a meeting on Wednesday with leaders of Jerusalem’s Christian community.

Rivlin told the religious figures that Israel’s thoughts were with the region’s oppressed Christian communities, including those murdered and wounded in the ongoing Syrian Civil War and those being attacked by Islamic State, including the dozens killed in twin suicide bombings in Egyptian Coptic churches on Palm Sunday.

The president noted that the Jewish people “know better than any what it means to pray in fear, and suffer from terrorism,” and vowed Israel would “protect your freedom of worship, your security and the security of your holy sites.”
Something has to be done about this now. The best way would be to get Islam out of Egypt, as it doesn't belong there, or anywhere.

French police had Champs-Elysees attacker detained, then released him

They almost had him in custody, then they had to release him:
The Champs-Elysees gunman who shot and killed a police officer just days before France's presidential election was detained in February for threatening police but then freed, two officials told The Associated Press on Friday. He was also convicted in 2003 of attempted homicide in the shootings of two police officers.

[...] Investigators believe at this stage that the gunman, 39-year-old Frenchman Karim Cheurfi, was alone in killing a police officer and wounding two others and a German tourist on Thursday night, less than 72 hours before polls open, a French official who discussed details of the investigation with the AP said on condition of anonymity.

The official and another, also speaking on condition of anonymity, said Cheurfi was detained toward the end of February after speaking threateningly about police but was then released for lack of evidence.
It's terrible they botched the case, and look what happened as a result.

Hooters is kowtowing to Islam

The restaurant business notable for the hot outfits worn by the waitresses is opening up outlets across Asia, as they say, and in the process, turning sharia compliant when they get to Muslim countries like Indonesia:
The term "Hooters Girl" has long been associated with skimpy tops and short skirts, but they might look a little different in Asia.

In the Jakarta outlet for example, the company is working on a new uniform that will feature longer skirts, higher necklines and thicker stockings.

“We want to be culturally respectful,” Neil Bailey, the president of Hooters Asia told news outlet Channel NewsAsia.

“We sat down with members of the local governing boards and advisors of a mosque nearby. We showed them our website and said: ‘This is who we are. We know this is not acceptable so what would be acceptable?"

The outlet has a Halal menu that has a selection for kids included, and the restaurant is decked out with high chairs and booster seats.
If they want to cater to family friendly audiences, that's fine. But Islam is not family-friendly, and the managers' inability to distinguish between what is a culture worthy of respect and what isn't is galling. It makes no difference whether the chairman defends their concept stateside; if he kowtows to Islam, that's bad.

Haredi plane passenger holds up flight over film screenings

Another case of a Haredi potentially breaking the law on airline flights, on a sojourn between Israel and Ukraine:
A plane was delayed for over an hour on Thursday when an ultra-Orthodox man complained about a movie shown on the screen and refused to take his seat.

The flight from Kiev to Israel on the El Al-owned low-cost airline Up was unable to take off while the man insisted that the overhead screens be disabled.

“Our departure from Kiev tonight was delayed by an hour when an ultra-Orthodox man decided to take over the flight and announced that he would not take his seat until the screens were retracted,” sports reporter Amit Horsky posted on Facebook, along with a video of the incident.

“Every attempt by the crew and passengers to convince him [to sit down] didn’t help,” he wrote. “The plane, which was already on the runway, returned to the gate. The door was opened and an El Al security guard boarded the plane. After much pleading the ‘righteous man’ agreed to sit down.”

“I want to stress that dozens of ultra-Orthodox passengers on the flight yelled at the man, explaining to him that he was profaning God’s name through his actions,” Horsky said. “They told him that he was wasting important time for the 200 people whom he was detaining. An argument broke out between them which at times got very loud.

“The main thing is that this ‘righteous man’ has prostrated himself in Uman,” Horsky added cynically, referring to the site of the grave of Rabbi Nachman of Bratslav, where thousands of Hasidim come to pray.

In an official response to the incident, El Al said that the passenger allowed the flight to depart after flight attendants provided blindfolds for him and his family.
This was no righteous man at all. This was just some selfish product of socialist mentality who's using God's name in vain, and his family clearly weren't helping either. Even if some of the other Haredis on board protested his selfishness, they've still got to consider that the mindset he's clearly been raised on led to this latest embarrassment. The man should be fined and not allowed to travel the airline ever again.
