Army intel officer murdered near Hebron

On Passover, an army official and father was murdered:
The victim of the shooting attack outside Hebron Monday night, on Passover eve, has been named as Baruch Mizrahi, a 47-year-old father of five who filled a variety of senior positions in Israel’s military and police intelligence forces.

Mizrahi, who was gunned down as he was driving with his family to a Passover seder, was a senior officer in the IDF’s intelligence force, and then a senior police intelligence and crime officer, Army Radio revealed.

[...] Mizrahi, who served in the military for 25 years, filling a variety of roles. In June 2011, he was drafted into the police force, where he served as head of the technology department in the police intelligence force.

His pregnant wife Hadas, 28, was moderately injured in the attack. One of their sons, a 9-year-old who was in a second vehicle, was wounded by shrapnel. He was operated on overnight Monday, and released on Tuesday.

the IDF’s initial investigation of the attack found that the shooter approached Route 35, near Idhna, on foot, and fired dozens of rounds from a Kalashnikov automatic weapon at passing cars from a distance of several meters.

Mizrahi, a senior police officer and a father of five, was killed when the family’s car was struck by several bullets. His wife was in stable condition after the attack, and was evacuated to the Sha’arei Tzedek hospital in Jerusalem with broken bones, but no life-threatening injuries. She was informed of her husband’s death and was being treated for shock.

One of the couple’s children, aged 9, was lightly injured. He was in another vehicle at the time of the attack.
The PLO did not condemn the shooting, proving once more that they fully condone this kind of barbarism.

Ontario judge grants Lev Tahor appeal, ruling children don't have to return to Quebec

Not very pleasing judgement was made, even if some of the children will remain in local children's service's foster care:
Lev Tahor won a legal victory in Ontario this week, with a decision on appeal striking down the order for some of the Jewish sect’s children to return to Quebec and be placed in foster care.

Superior Court Justice Lynda Templeton overturned Justice Stephen Fuerth’s Feb. 3 ruling that upheld the Quebec order. As a result, the 14 children subject to the order will not be returned to Quebec, and Chatham-Kent Children’s Services is now in charge of their wellbeing.

Templeton ruled not only that Fuerth erred, but also that returning the children to Quebec would not be in their best interest.

“Even if I were wrong with respect to any or all of the above, I am entirely satisfied that it would be contrary to the best interests of these children to be returned to Quebec. I decline to visit upon the children the consequences of the conduct of their parents,” Templeton wrote.

But she also expressed concern over their wellbeing, based on evidence that included allegations of “suppression or limitation of critical thought in (the sect’s) children” and underage marriage. “These two factors alone are sufficient to cause the court grave concern about the health and welfare of these children and their protection,” she wrote. [...]

Denis Baraby, director of the Quebec youth protection agency that initiated the case, remains concerned about the welfare of the community’s children. In November he sought apprehension warrants for as many as 114 children in addition to the 14 subject to the court proceeding.

Baraby says the agency has run out of options for getting anything enforced in Ontario. But he has no intention of revoking the Quebec warrants, which have kept some children from getting passports.

“If the parents leave and go to a place like Guatemala, then we just permit the sect to go on. My intent is to keep these warrants active until I’m satisfied that the children are not at risk,” Baraby said.

Queen’s University law professor Nicholas Bala said the decision highlights a gap in the law: “The specific issue in this case is, because of the judge’s ruling, we now have an authoritative view that we don’t have a way of enforcing child welfare orders from another province.”
Granted, the children who were taken into custody may remain with the local authorities for some time. But the professor and Baraby are right; this is otherwise a very galling judgement that was made, allowing the cult to break the law and otherwise endanger the welfare of the children by being able to run between provincial lines under the confidence the authorities in the next one will rule in their favor. Some of the commentors on the Windsor Star's article are mad at the judge, with good reason. Keeping them away from potentially abusive parents is necessary, and if they're out of their hands, they can be out of their influence more easily.

Norway funding 1st Muslim only school

Speaking of schools, there sure is quite a bit in the news today about Islam's encroachment. The next example comes from Norway (via The Jawa Report):
The opening of Norway's first Muslim-only school has caused controversy in the Scandinavian country's capital, with anti-immigration activists and politicians expressing their concerns over how the taxpayer-funded move might harm integration in the country.

Plans for the school were green-lit last week, after years of campaigning by the 'Association of Muslim Mothers'. In Norway, religious schools can apply for state-funding, and on that basis, Torbjørn Røe Isaksen, the Education Minister, said "...when all Parliamentary parties are agreed that we should have a law where religious schools get state funding, it’s a little strange to deny Muslim schools approval.”

According to the Local.no, the school is set to "teach its pupils Arabic and Islamic values as well as the standard subjects on the curriculum, replacing the subject of Religion, Philosophy and Ethics with Islam, Religion and Philosophy."
And soon, they're bound to teach why infidels are inferior. And why women must wear burkas. And why only halal food is legitimate. And why sharia is the only acceptable way. On top of that, they even blatantly misuse taxpayers' money for this whole mess.

UK launches inquiry into Muslim takeover at local schools

On the surface, it would seem they're concerned about this case, but in the long run, that has yet to be confirmed:
The investigation into an alleged plot by hardline Muslims to force out uncooperative head teachers and governors has widened to 15 schools.

Ofsted inspectors have been sent into the schools, all of which are in Birmingham, to investigate allegations of extremism and radicalism which came to light after an anonymous letter apparently setting out a “Trojan horse” blueprint for seizing control of governing bodies was leaked.

Ofsted will closely examine 15 schools after Michael Gove, the Education Secretary, ordered a series of inspections. The Department for Education (DfE) said it was vital these were “carried out impartially’’ and said it would be inappropriate to comment further at this stage.

A parallel investigation is being carried out by Birmingham city council, and one academy school has had its financial arrangements reviewed. The council last week announced a freeze on the recruitment of local authority school governors across Birmingham, stating the system was “not fit for purpose’’.
What are the odds this inquiry won't affect schools where a sizable number of the students are already Muslim? Come to think of it, what guarantee do we have results will be publicized for the inquiry to let people know what's going on? And who knows if any bad Muslim employees will be let go? In that country, you just can't count on them to be efficient.

US government promotes Islam in Czechoslovakia

But even the Czech government's not innocent here, in this decision they're making to promote Islam in schools:
The Czech government has approved a new project aimed at promoting Islam in public elementary and secondary schools across the country.

The project—Muslims in the Eyes of Czech Schoolchildren—is being spearheaded by a Muslim advocacy group and is being financed by American taxpayers through a grant from the US Embassy in Prague. (The US State Department is also promoting Islam in other European countries.)

The group says the Czech Ministry of Education has authorized it to organize lectures and seminars aimed at "teaching Czech schoolchildren about Islamic beliefs and practices" and at "fighting stereotypes and prejudices about Muslims."

But critics—there are many—say the project's underlying objective is to convert non-Muslim children to Islam by bringing proselytizing messages into public schools under the guise of promoting multiculturalism and fighting "Islamophobia." [...]

The group also organizes thematic lectures, workshops and debates for schools or groups of students, many of which are held at the Municipal Library in Prague—and which are more openly geared toward converting Czech youth to Islam.

One such lecture entitled "Paths of Young Czech Women to Islam" answers questions such as: What makes a young Czech woman want to become a Muslim? It is the main motive always falling in love with a Muslim man or are there other reasons? How does one convert to Islam? How can new Muslims cope with non-Muslim relatives?
Do they even cope? Or do they reject them, selectively or otherwise? It's a disgrace the Czech government is going along with this, and that the US government is funding the projects.

Neo-KKK activist commits murder at Jewish center in Kansas

On the eve of Passover, an anti-semitic and anti-Christian tragedy occurred in Kansas:
The man accused of killing three people Sunday in attacks at a Jewish community center and Jewish retirement community near Kansas City is a well-known white supremacist and former Ku Klux Klan leader who was once the subject of a nationwide manhunt.

Frazier Glenn Cross, of Aurora, Mo., was booked into Johnson County jail on a preliminary charge of first-degree murder after the attacks in Overland Park.

At a news conference, Overland Park police Chief John Douglass declined to publicly identify the man suspected in the attacks. But an official at the Olathe jail, speaking on the condition of anonymity because he wasn't authorized to discuss the case, identified the suspect as 73-year-old Frazier Glenn Cross, of Aurora, Mo.

"Today is a sad and very tragic day," Douglass said at the news conference. "As you might imagine we are only three hours into this investigation. There's a lot of innuendo and a lot of assertions going around. There is really very little hardcore information."

According to police, the attacks happened within minutes of one another. At around 1 p.m. a gunman shot two people in the parking lot behind the Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City. He then drove a few blocks away to a Jewish retirement community, Village Shalom, and gunned down a woman or girl there, Douglass said. Officers arrested him in an elementary school parking lot a short time later.

Police said the attacks at both sites happened outside, and that the gunman never entered any buildings. Douglass said the gunman also shot at two other people during the attacks, but missed.

Authorities declined to release the victims' names pending notification of their relatives, and the identity of the person shot at the retirement community was still unknown early Monday. However, the family of the first two victims put out a statement identifying them as Dr. William Lewis Corporon, who died at the scene, and his 14-year-old grandson, Reat Griffin Underwood, who died at Overland Park Regional Medical Center.

They were both Christian, and the family thanked members of their church congregation, among other people, for their support.

"We take comfort knowing they are together in Heaven," the family said. It asked for privacy to mourn.

Rebecca Sturtevant, a hospital spokeswoman, said family members told her Corporon had taken his grandson to the community center so that the boy could try out for a singing competition for high school students. Reat was a freshman at Blue Valley High School and an Eagle Scout.

Douglass said the suspect made several statements to police, "but it's too early to tell you what he may or may not have said." He also said it was too early in the investigation to determine whether there was an anti-Semitic motive for the attacks or whether they will be investigated as hate crimes. The Jewish festival of Passover begins Monday.

"We are investigating it as a hate crime. We're investigating it as a criminal act. We haven't ruled out anything. ... Again, we're three hours into it," he said.

[...] Miller has been involved in the white supremacist movement for most of his life. He founded the Carolina Knights of the Ku Klux Klan and was its "grand dragon" in the 1980s. The Army veteran and retired truck driver later founded another white supremacist group, the White Patriot Party, the center said.

Miller was the subject of a nationwide manhunt in 1987 for violating the terms of his bond while appealing a North Carolina conviction for operating a paramilitary camp. The search ended after federal agents found Miller and three other men in an Ozark mobile home, which was filled with hand grenades, automatic weapons and thousands of rounds of ammunition. Miller tried running for U.S. House in 2006 and the U.S. Senate in 2010, espousing a white power platform each time.
What an abominable man he was, a remnant of the older KKK activists of the early 20th century, as is apparent. He should burn in hell for his crimes.

Jimmy Carter has nothing to say about Muslim honor murders in new book

The former left-wing president's published a new book, and he has no comment on the crisis of honor murders in the Muslim world:
As debate rages over a new documentary about the “honor killings” of women by Islamic extremists around the world, former president Jimmy Carter has weighed in — and not on the side of oppressed women.

The film, Honor Diaries, is being denounced by Islamist activists such as the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) — not because the documentary is inaccurate, but because its accurate portrayal of the Muslim persecution of women is so unflattering to the Islamic world.

In the midst of the “honor killing” controversy comes the release of Carter’s new book decrying the abuse of women throughout the world. Well, not quite everywhere around the world: there is one place which, despite a recent 100% increase in the murders of innocent women, does not merit even a single mention in the ex-president’s book — the territories controlled by the Palestinian Authority.

At first glance, this omission might seem strange. Carter, after all, has devoted much of his post-presidential career to speaking out about what he claims is the mistreatment of the Palestinian Arabs by Israel. But for some reason, when it comes to the mistreatment of Palestinian women by fellow-Palestinians, Carter has nothing to say–even in a book that is ostensibly devoted to the problem of violence against women.
I wonder if he even has anything to say about honor murders in the rest of the Muslim world? Or if he has anything to say about Islam at all? But it's not so strange some leftists leave out serious issues like these, so much as it is terrible.

Britain loses identity, if it ever had one

Giulio Meotti wrote about Britain's transformation into an Islamic hub in Europe:
In 1215, Britain enacted the “Magna Charta Libertatum”. It is the basis of the UK legal system which protects individual rights.

800 years later, for the first time, that glorious legal system is changing face. It is now an experiment unique in the world, the hybridation of the Magna Charta and Islam. This is not Londonstan or Islamisation, the multicultural ghettos or threats, but Islam injected into the most important sectors of the country’s government: law, education and finance.
Honestly, I'm not sure they ever successfully instilled the influence of the Magna Carta in anybody. They have libel laws far exceeding those of other European countries like France, and as far as I know, they've never repealed them despite bringing up the issues at least once in the House of Commons.
The main Islamic courts are located in London, Birmingham, Bradford, Manchester and Nuneaton, the very hearts of the great British Muslim community. The first of these courts was established in 1982 in east London under the leadership of Suhaib Hasan, a prominent member of the European Council for Fatwa, the organization headed by Youssef Qaradawi, spiritual leader of the Muslim Brotherhood.

These courts formalize the “talaq”, the Islamic repudiation of a wife by her husband. Baroness Sayeeda Warsi, the Conservative leader of the Islamic faith, calls it “apartheid”.
So the first sharia court was established right under Margaret Thatcher's very nose, and nothing was done about it. And what of Warsi? Does she consider this kind of apartheid legitimate?
Meanwhile, four departments of the government (Labor and Pensions, Treasury , Revenue and Customs, Ministry of the Interior) have recognized polygamy. Although the practice is illegal in England and Wales since 1604, the polygamous Muslims in the UK benefit from social privileges and are recognized by the public authorities.

One of the highest UK Justices, Sir James Munby as well as Rowan Williams, the former Archbishop of Canterbury, and the former Chief Justice, Lord Phillips, all are open to the use of Sharia in the UK legal system.

Islamic law is also advancing in public universities. The new guidelines of the university, under the item “External speakers in higher education institutions” prepared by the Committee on Universities, declared legitimate the Islamic fundamentalist campaign to separate women and men during university events. Many religious Jews also separate men and women at their events, but they have no plans to impose their way of life on others the way Muslims do.
That part's kind of sloppy. It depends which religious Jews and what events are in focus. Separation of sexes at Jewish gatherings is something usually just done during specific prayer sessions in Orthodox synagogues, and even some Conservative synagogues, because they want people to pay closer attention to the services at hand, and leave social interactions for afterwards. It's the Haredis who've taken the ideas to offensive extremes, acting as though gender separation must be done at all costs at every venue possible, and such a practice by the Haredis should be condemned, since it takes away focus from the more serious issues of Islamofascism.
A new report, entitled, “Easy Meat: Multiculturalism, Islam and Child Sex Slavery”, also shows how officials in England and Wales were aware of Islamic child grooming, the process by which predators befriend and build trust with children in order to prepare them for sexual abuse by Muslim gangs. This has been going on since at least 1988. Why was it not stopped? Call it “cultural sensitivity”.
So all this sexual abuse took place as early as Thatcher's third term in office, yet nothing was done about it. That's the sad reality; even under a conservative government, these kind of tragedies can be spawned.
One day, when landing at Heathrow airport, we will wonder whether the UK is still Winston Churchill’s country or whether it has become a surreal and ridiculous mix of Sharia and Spice Girls.
Maybe we'll be wondering why the Spice Girls are no longer singing, ditto where all their music records went!

Quebec's issued apprehension orders for all of the Lev Tahor children

According to Blackburn News:
A Quebec Provincial Court has issued apprehension orders for all 128 Lev Tahor children.

Youth protection officials in Quebec tell BlackburnNews.com the orders were issued in November of 2013, after the group fled the province.

“Those orders have been transferred to the Chatham-Kent Children’s Services,” says Director of Communications for the Laurentian Youth Center Isabelle Dugre. “For the moment, we do not know what will be the action of CKCS regarding those orders.”
Considering the cult broke the law last time a judgement was made, I sure hope they'll make the right decisions, and remove all of the children from the clutches of that horrible cult. They do not deserve to be living under such Islamized, Orwellian circumstances. The parents should see psychologists about their pagan worship of Shlomo Helbrans.

Brandeis University made mistake rescinding honor for Hirsi Ali

A writer for CNN had the audacity to agree it was a serious mistake for Brandeis to revoke the honor for Ayaan Hirsi Ali:
First, Brandeis University offered an honorary degree to Ayaan Hirsi Ali, an outspoken critic of Islam. Then apparently when officials actually familiarized themselves with her writing after several complaints, they took the offer back this week.

One Fox News contributor calls it "an honor killing, Brandeis-style." That's crass, but the university's behavior is certainly disappointing. It smacks of cowardice, and Hirsi Ali can't be blamed for seeing it as an attack on her personal dignity.

An act that was meant to honor her has been turned into an opportunity to shame her -- and, as she pointed out, "The slur on my reputation is not the worst aspect of this episode. More deplorable is that an institution set up on the basis of religious freedom should today so deeply betray its own founding principles." Indeed, the fear of creating offense is not compatible with academic freedom. On the contrary, criticizing society in the boldest terms possible is what intellectuals are there to do.

So Brandeis ought to have stood by its invitation. But there are some who would ask why it made the invitation in the first place. If the institution was worried about generating controversy, all it had to do was Google her name to discover that Hirsi Ali is a very controversial person. Indeed, her views fall well outside of the mainstream.
Unfortunately, the same writer begins to derail when he says:
Hirsi Ali's story is undeniably moving. Born in Somalia, she was the victim of female genital mutilation at the age of 5 and was betrothed into an arranged marriage, which she escaped by seeking political asylum in the Netherlands. Thereafter she emerged as a forceful, politically engaged critic of Islam -- her memoir, "Infidel," is an extraordinary testament to the horrors that fundamentalism can wrought on an individual. Her ethnicity excuses her from the charge of racism; her politics is not reactionary but rather a very muscular variety of liberal universalism.

However, the Islam that Hirsi Ali knew and denounces is a narrow cultural experience -- not the reality of the religion as a whole. There is no female genital mutilation in the Koran; tribes do it because it is a custom, not a legitimate religious instruction. Likewise, the extreme Islamism that threatens the West -- and against which the right campaigns -- is a small, geographically limited phenomenon that is almost unrelated to the considerably more liberal forms of Islam practiced in, say, Bangladesh or Europe.
Here's where he fouls up badly for the sake of PC. It may not be in the Koran, but it most certainly is found inside the Hadith. And his take on customs is confusing and bizarre, because don't customs usually derive from someplace? That's shameful to suggest it's seperate.

Israel HaYom warns that:
We're only 10 days into April, but 2014 already is shaping up to be a banner year for those who consider any criticism of Islam, radical or otherwise, to be something unfit for public consideration.
And they're right to be concerned. If we don't want this to keep happening, that's why all concerned must step up efforts to get universities, among other places, to stop harboring and paying lip service to totalitarians.

FAA lobbies to keep sharia out of Florida courts

The Florida Family Association's doing its best to prevent sharia from being considered in local courts:
The head of a Florida-based, pro-family organization says he is lobbying the legislature to pass a statute that would keep Sharia law out of Florida courtrooms.

The Florida Senate Rules Committee is the final Senate committee that must approve SB 386 called "Application of Foreign Law in Certain Cases" so it can go to the full Senate.

The American Laws for American Courts statute is based on bills in other states. It would prohibit Sharia and other foreign laws from being used in Florida court proceedings, and has already been approved by several other committees.

"Judges are not to consider international laws, laws of other countries including Sharia law, and in particular in divorce cases," says David Caton, president of the Florida Family Association.

Sharia law is very cruel in its treatment of women, says Caton.

"It ranges from the unspeakable act to a woman's personhood, to even killing the woman in the name of honor to demean and mistreat women," he advises.

He warns that a male Muslim could enter a Florida court and claim that, according to Sharia law, he has the right to their children.

That is not how American courts operate
, Caton points out, and says that is why the Florida legislature needs to provide directives to the courts to prevent it from happening.

The committee is expected to vote Wednesday afternoon.
The American public - including the Tea Parties - also need to lobby to ensure human rights will be protected from such horrors.

Many more children in Lev Tahor cult could definitely be at risk

Officials in Quebec have warned about this, with good reason:
The head of the youth protection agency in Quebec that first gained access to the Jewish sect Lev Tahor is frustrated that children’s services in Ontario have not acted on Quebec court orders for more than 100 children in that community, CBC’s the fifth estate has learned.

While an Ontario judge has upheld a Quebec court order to place 13 Lev Tahor children in temporary foster care, Denis Baraby, the director of Quebec’s youth protection services Laurentian branch, told the fifth estate that his agency is concerned for more than just those children.

After Lev Tahor left Quebec, Baraby said youth protection authorities went to court and obtained orders to bring all the children in the community before a judge to determine if they are at risk. He said there were 128 orders in total. [...]

Baraby told the fifth estate’s Gillian Findlay that Quebec authorities handed over the court orders to their colleagues at the Chatham-Kent Children’s Services, expecting they would take them to an Ontario judge to enforce them. He does not understand why that has not happened.

“Frustrated, yes frustrated,” he told Findlay. “They [Chatham-Kent Children’s Services workers] had been in the community, they saw what was going on.

“Things were bothering [them], and yet there is no more action regarding the remaining children. So there is something we have difficulty comprehending.”

The executive director of Chatham-Kent’s Children’s Services, Stephen Doig, told the fifth estate that his organization is not legally obliged to act on the Quebec orders, as laws are different between the provinces. He said children’s services will wait to see what ultimately happens to the case of the 14 children that is already before an Ontario court. A decision is expected Monday.

Doig said his agency is not actively monitoring all the children in Lev Tahor, but he said if there are concerns reported, children’s services will visit the home and do an assessment.
I think Doig is foolish not to worry about the children in their entirety. There's every chance even other children in the cult were abused - both physically and psychologically - by the overlords and parents. But maybe the following could explain something:
Baraby said that Lev Tahor members might be presenting Ontario officials with a different view of their community. For example, Baraby says that in media reports, he’s seen the children playing with new toys that they didn’t have in Quebec.

“They’ve learned from their mistakes in Quebec, so things appear to be better in Chatham,” Baraby says. “If they are, you know it's going to be beneficial for the children because we know that they're seeing toys.

“I think we have all been manipulated by the community, even us.”
No doubt about that. The cult is clearly trying to disguise its earlier MO with a facade, but the authorities shouldn't let that get in their way. Besides, one of the worst forms of abuse against the girls in the cult was forcing them to wear niqabs.

As for the members who went to Guatemala, here's why:
The Lev Tahor members told Findlay they randomly chose Guatemala as their destination. However, that country may offer them a legal haven.

In Quebec, some of the allegations against Lev Tahor include marriage of girls as young as 14, and not following the provincial curriculum. In Guatemala, the legal age for marriage is 14 and there is no required educational curriculum.

The fifth estate learned that last month, Guatemalan authorities were warned that more members of Lev Tahor might be on their way to that country.

That warning came the same day the fifth estate learned that Lev Tahor’s leader, Rabbi Shlomo Helbrans, was detained in the Heathrow airport in London and sent back to Canada.
Boy, Guatemala sure doesn't have a very good political system, do they. And they clearly don't have much morale if they allow underaged marriages. But good to know the head honcho was collared and sent back to Canada after a potential jailbreak.

Some possible good news is that there's secret court orders preventing the children from leaving Canada:
More than 100 Lev Tahor children have effectively become prisoners of this country as a result of secret court orders that prevent them from obtaining passports and crossing international borders.

Guidy Mamann, an immigration lawyer who is representing the ultra-orthodox Jewish group, said the existence of the judicial orders was discovered when some Canadian-born children were denied passports. Their parents are temporary residents in Canada and would therefore be free to leave the country.

“Some of the families said, ‘You know what, we’re not going to apply for (residency) extensions. This is getting crazy — we just want to go,” Mamann told the Star in a telephone interview. “We’re not talking about running; we’re talking about these families do not have permanent status in Canada — they have temporary status. What is being proposed? That they leave their kids here? It’s crazy.”
No, it's not. Besides, some of those parents could be just as crazy as Helbrans, and therefore unsuited to the task of caretaking. Some lawyers sure are apologists for victimologists.
A spokesperson for the director of youth protection for the Laurentians region of Quebec said the warrants for every single child in the Lev Tahor community were obtained in the days after they fled Quebec for Chatham-Kent, Ont. — a departure that was prompted by a fight over the community’s home-schooling regime as well as an approaching court case that risked seeing 14 children from two families taken into temporary foster care.
Well there you have it, that's why the court orders, and for the right reasons. Because of the cult's dishonesty and lawbreaking, that's one more reason why the courts wouldn't allow a Passover visit for some children:
An Ontario Court of Justice judge has denied a request for two Lev Tahor children to spend Passover with members of the community, citing a concern over flight risk raised by the lawyer for Chatham-Kent Children’s Services.

William Sullivan, the lawyer representing two children who were apprehended and placed in foster care, said the family of Mayer Rosner, a community leader in the controversial ultra-orthodox Jewish sect, was willing to host them for three days during Passover.

“They are prepared to come here, participate in Passover, and if ordered, to return,” said Sullivan of the two children. “I said to my children clients when I saw them on Sunday, I said I want you to be the engineers of building this small bridge. I want you to, if this court was to permit you, to come to Chatham to spend Passover on the days that I’ve mentioned … to show the court that you will respect it.”

But Loree Hodgson-Harris, lawyer for CKCS, alleged Rosner played a role in the flight of the families that prompted the emergency order.

“Mayer Rosner is one of the community leaders that the society has concerns with,”
said Hodgson-Harris, who said she was not given enough time to fully respond to the request. “The circumstances of this case involve parents fleeing the jurisdiction in the face of a court order. The evidence will be that it was with the assistance of the community leaders and in particular Mayer Rosner. The long and the short of it is that it’s much more complicated than the girls spending a few days in the community.”

Justice Lucy Glenn ruled that the two children could have access to the other children in care in Toronto and visits from their parents, but would not be returned to the community for Passover.

Glenn also ordered that the parents of the children be allowed eight hours per week of supervised visits. Chatham-Kent Children’s Services agreed to pay part of the cost required for the parents to travel to Toronto where the children are in care.
They really shouldn't. The cult and its sympathisers even tried to influence the rulings by posting articles about it in the judge's mailbox. They don't deserve the monetary support of the authorities.

Haredi moonbats continue to riot against law enforcement

The latest riot over an arrest of a draft dodger has taken place:
Over 500 haredim rioted in Jerusalem’s ultra-Orthodox Mea Shearim neighborhood Thursday afternoon to protest the arrest of a young man for refusing to report for IDF service.

According to police, shortly after the unidentified conscript was arrested, radical members of the community gathered and began throwing rocks at police, setting trash bins on fire, and blocking traffic.

“Special patrol units in the area promptly arrived at the scene to deal with the disturbance, which has resulted in five arrests so far,” said Police Spokesman Micky Rosenfeld an hour after the rioting began.

Rosenfeld added that police have closed off traffic in and out of the neighborhood, and cordoned-off the scene of the riot, to contain the violence.

No serious injuries were reported in the incident.

Mea Shearim has been no stranger to such radical demonstrations since the conscription bill requiring ultra-Orthodox men to serve in the army, or take part in compulsory national service, was announced. Failure to report for service can result in up to two years imprisonment.
There should be jail terms set for rioters who disturb the peace out of isolationist and socialist measures too.

How effectively will Egypt's new government combat sexual harrassment?

Here's another report on sexual harrassment and assault in Egypt:
A 2013 United Nations study found that 99.3 percent of Egyptian women have been sexually harassed.

Women, the Egyptian government has claimed, are a top priority for the interior ministry which established a task force to counter violence against women. One female task force member, Colonel Manal Atef, believes that women must take more initiative in reporting harassment. The government and the laws, she claimed, are not the problem.

But even when women try to bring the harassers to justice, they are sometimes dissuaded. After passers by intervened when Lyla El-Gueretly was slapped by a man she had chastised for making unwelcome sexual comment, "The (people) tried to talk me out of taking him to the police station... They said it's just a waste of time, a waste of effort and he has learned the lesson."

El-Gueretly's attacker was arrested and charged with assault. The attacker, however, was released before his trial and while he was found guilty in absentia, he did not go to jail.

One Egyptian college student named Habiba encountered indifferent witnesses to her harassment. While walking down the street, a group of men began to chase her, making lewd gestures, and yelling "Come on! You know they want to." She sought refuge in a pharmacy but "No one in the pharmacy did anything to help me despite my pleas, they just wanted me to leave." After two hours of hiding in the pharmacy, Habiba ran as fast as she could out of the store. "I was so afraid that one of them would touch me ... you just don't forget something like that."

In Habiba's opinion, the harassment reflects "a lack of ethics and culture more than anything" and has nothing to do with choice of dress. "Even veiled girls get harassed all the time," she added.
I figured dress alone was not the reason for harassment. Rather, it's the Islamofascist mindset that does.
Gaber Nassar, a university dean, blamed one student for her "inappropriate attire" as the reason for an assault by a group of male classmates. He alleged that her removal of a black cloak upon entering the school caused a group of male students to grope and chase her. The female student, who was wearing a long-sleeved shirt, pants, and had bleached blonde hair, locked herself in a bathroom. A witness said that school security intervened only after the men tried to enter the bathroom. The dean later retracted his comments and asserted that the perpetrator, not the victim, would be punished.
But did they actually get rid of the man who committed the crime? If they didn't, then no justice was done.
The Egyptian Justice Ministry is working on a draft anti-sexual harassment law that stipulates fines and imprisonment terms for violators. Justice Ministry spokesperson Abdel Azim al-Ashry explained that instability and the absence of a parliament have delayed the passage of the law.
It's not enough. Only shunning the Religion of Rape will help reduce the crisis.

"Ground zero mosque" at Park 51 could be demolished to build bigger Islamic center

The Christian Post says the project of evil may be seeing a revival:
A real estate developer in New York City has filed an application to demolish Park 51, or what has become known as the 'Ground Zero mosque.' However, reports state that the developer may simply have plans to build a larger facility in its place.

The New York Department of Buildings told Reuters this week that it was reviewing an application from the developer to tear down the building and an adjacent property. The application was filed by Soho Properties, operated by Sharif El-Gamal, who owns three surrounding properties.
If this happens, opponents had better be ready to deal with this yet again. A structure devoted to the teaching of evil cannot go unchallenged.

Brooklyn Holocaust museum may be censoring women's images for sake of Haredi fruitcakes

A Holocaust museum in NYC is running a special exhibition for Haredis. Unfortunately, they're succumbing to political correctness:
Is it permissible to show images of Jewish women with their heads shaved but without a head covering as they walk towards Nazi gas chambers?

This is the type of question faced by organizers of the first Holocaust museum to be aimed specifically at Orthodox Jews.

Elly Kleinman, the Orthodox businessman behind the project, sought the advice of a Hasidic rabbi on this question not long ago. Kleinman said that the rabbi told him: “Are you allowed to show it? You are obligated to show it.”

But Kleinman, who declined to name the rabbi, said he wanted to accommodate the cultural sensitivities of the community’s more conservative wing.

So, for groups that shun images of women, the Kleinman Family Holocaust Education Center will have a separate track in which the material on display will not include pictures of women.

“Our objective is to cooperate with all constituencies,” Kleinman said, adding, “We expect to resolve these issues within the community.”
Why?!? Do they realize how pathetic they're being? Do they understand that by censoring women, they're giving the impression that female lives were expendable? In reality, they're cooperating with sects like Satmar that never fought seriously against such bigotry, and what if there were kapos of Haredi background whose names need to be known? Are they going to censor that too?
Kleinman has aims for the museum that go beyond just telling the story of the Holocaust itself. He wants visitors to learn about the vibrancy of Orthodox life in prewar Europe and about the flourishing of Orthodox life after the Holocaust. He also wants them to think more about anti-Semitism and about how easily a civilized country such as Germany could descend into barbarity. Jews often refer to America as a medina shel chessed — a country of kindness — Kleinman said. But toleration can disappear in an instant.
Civilized? Even in centuries past, that could be disputable, given that this was a country from where the Vandals came from during 429 led by king Genseric, and the society that cooked up the Brothers Grimm fairy tales.
In several interviews with the Forward, Friedmann and his colleagues said that the Holocaust has been a neglected topic in the ultra-Orthodox education system for decades.

Most children have been raised in households of survivor parents or grandparents. But until recently, the Holocaust was not taught in ultra-Orthodox schools. Even today, only a minority of schools, mainly girls schools, teach the subject.
I assume it's because they considered it too "secular" for their mindset.
Rabbi Dovid Reidel, the KFHEC’s director of research and archives division, said museum staff are still grappling with how to portray women in the Holocaust without upsetting religious sensitivities.

“The last thing we want to do is suggest there weren’t women in the Holocaust,” Reidel said. [...]

Asked how the museum could depict both women’s stories without offending ultra-Orthodox men, Reidel said that on days when ultra-Orthodox school groups visit the museum, they might have to make sure no images of the women are on display.
If they go that route, they'll be blowing everything. To censor images of women is wrong, and would give the wrong impression about the value of life for both sexes. More to the point, if the Haredi schools refuse to attend simply because of women's imagery, then they're the guilty party, and are putting petty discrimination before historical knowledge. The museum should not seek to please Haredis who consider women inferior, something which, let us note, the nazis were doing during WW2.

Update: speaking of censorship, here's another article about how it's a serious problem in Haredi newspapers.

John Kerry predictably blames Israel for falldown of pseudo-peace talks

He may pretend otherwise, but it's obvious he's pinning the blame on one side only:
Referring to a fourth batch of Palestinian prisoners Israel had committed to release on March 29 but did not, Kerry said: “Unfortunately, the prisoners weren’t released on the Saturday they were supposed to be released … day (one) went by, day two went by, day three went by, and then in the afternoon, when they were about to maybe get there, 700 settlement units were announced in Jerusalem, and poof, that was sort of the moment.”

Kerry was referring to the Israeli government’s approval of the construction of homes in east Jerusalem, an area Israel says is an integral part of its capital city that it will never hand to the Palestinians, who claim Jerusalem as their future capital.

The Israeli government did not release the final group of prisoners, who had been convicted of terrorist activities, after the Palestinian Authority demanded that several Arab citizens of Israel be included in the group. Palestinians officials also would not commit to an extension of peace talks beyond April.

Jonathan Tobin, senior editor of the conservative Commentary Magazine, took issue with Kerry’s “poof” comment.

“Poof? To say that this evaluation of the situation is disingenuous would be the understatement of the century,” Tobin wrote. “Kerry knows very well that the negotiations were doomed once the Palestinians refused to sign on to the framework for future talks he suggested even though it centered them on the 1967 lines that they demand as the basis for borders.”

Tobin noted that Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas has repeatedly said he would never recognize Israel as a “Jewish state,” which would be an indication of his willingness to end the conflict, nor had he “budged an inch on a single issue.”

“Kerry doesn’t want to blame the Palestinians for walking out because to do so would be a tacit admission that his critics were right when they suggested last year that he was embarking on a fool’s errand,” Tobin added.
There's more at the link. Kerry's only proven himself an incredibly selfish ignoramus by failing to admit failures can happen.

Brandeis University shuns Ayaan Hirsi Ali

Another outrageous attack on a courageous woman, this time at the grounds of a complex named after a judge who defended free speech:
Brandeis University — an institution named after Supreme Court Associate Justice Louis Brandeis, a famed defender of free speech — has canceled plans to award an honorary degree to scholar Ayaan Hirsi Ali, who is known for her scathing criticisms of Islam and its treatment of women.

Brandeis students and faculty — including many in the Arab American studies department — had balked at the idea of the university bestowing an honorary degree on such a notable critic of Islam. Faculty urged administrators to consider the feelings of the Muslim community, according to The Justice, Brandeis’s student newspaper. [...]

Hirsi Ali grew up Muslim in Somalia, where she overcame genital mutilation and an arranged marriage. She emigrated to the Netherlands and eventually joined Dutch Parliament. She now lives in the United States and is a visiting fellow of the American Enterprise Institute. She considers herself a classical liberal and an atheist, and has worked to call attention to the plight of women under oppressive Islamic regimes. She wrote the script for the Dutch film “Submission,” which resulted in the assassination of the film’s director, Theo van Gogh, by a Muslim extremist.
I suppose they think by contrast that Islamofascists are worthy of honorary degrees? This cowardice by the varsity has already drawn some flak, and honestly, nobody should fund them if this is the way they're going to act, and the crowd they're going to go with.

Shas appoints vulgar rabbi as its spiritual leader

Aryeh Deri continues to make quite an impression, as he nominates Shalom Cohen, the man who called religious Zionists "amalekites":
The 83-year-old rabbi is the head of the prestigious Sephardi Porat Yosef Yeshiva in Jerusalem and is the eldest member of Shas' Council of Torah Sages, of which he has been a member for over 30 years. Shas Chairman Aryeh Deri ran the campaign to install Cohen as Shas' new spiritual chief, with assistance from the council.

[...] Cohen is known for his frankness. Recently, he spawned controversy with statements directed against the national-religious community, in one such instance, calling the community "Amalek," the biblical enemy of the Jews. The public outcry that ensued prompted Cohen to apologize for his remarks.

In another incident, Cohen singled out Habayit Hayehudi, derisively comparing its membership in the government to "taking a potty that babies dirty, and putting it on your heads. Poor things."
I wouldn't call it frankness so much as I would call it abominable. Besides, he didn't exactly apologize for his remarks, and I don't expect him to do any better now.
