Soldier feared kidnapped

At the same time a ridiculous "cease-fire" was declared by sources other than Israel, it's been discovered a soldier may have been kidnapped:
An Israeli soldier is feared captured near Rafah, Israeli media reported, and a cease-fire collapsed in its first hours.

The army spokesman said the soldier there is a suspicion that the soldier was captured during exchanges of fire between Hamas militants and Israeli troops on Friday in the southern Gaza Strip. His family has been informed, the spokesman’s office said.

Multiple Israeli media also reported that Israeli officials have told U.N. officials that Israel considers the cease-fire ruptured.

The suspected abduction occurred when gunmen opened fire on IDF troops in the southern Gaza Strip city. The army is conducting extensive searches and efforts to resolve the situation, army sources told the Ynet news site.

Israel Radio quoted Moussa Abu Marzouk, a Hamas official based in Cairo, as saying that the group was holding a an officer and that he was captured before the cease-fire’s 8 a.m. start.
What cease-fire was there, ever? This kidnapping, if it took place, was indeed an act of war and should get a response accordingly.

Police injure Jewish Taliban woman at Western Wall after she refused to cooperate

A member of the Jewish burka cult got a bullet in the leg after she caused trouble at the Western Wall:
A Jewish woman who police said was dressed in blankets was shot in the leg by an officer at the entrance to the Western Wall area.

The woman did not stop at the security checkpoint at the holy site’s entrance on Wednesday evening when asked to by security guards, according to the Israel Police.

Police fired a warning shot into the air and, when she continued walking, fired at her legs.

She was later identified as being a member of a fringe haredi Orthodox Jewish sect often referred to as the “Jewish Taliban,” which is known for its extreme women’s modesty rules.

In keeping with the sect’s rules, the woman, 35, reportedly was dressed in layers of clothes and blankets, sometimes referred to as a “haredi burqa.”

She was treated on the scene by Magen David Adom and then taken to the hospital for further treatment.
I wonder if she was looking for trouble deliberately? It's understandable if the guards feared she could be some kind of terrorist, and she was concealing her face (and denying herself vitamin D), which only furthered the fears it could be a jihadist attacking. Particularly shameful is her adherence to such an awful sect and their oppressive culture.

Muslim youth from Haifa charged with injuring Jewish youth

Here's a case of one Islamist who's now facing trial for his anti-semitism in Jerusalem:
Jerusalem prosecutors filed charges against a 15-year-old Arab youth and Haifa resident, for causing a serious injury under severe circumstances and for the obstruction of justice.

The charges indicate that the youth and a friend attacked a Jewish youth in Jerusalem’s Old City. The two beat the Jewish youth, kicked him in his face and head, simply because he was a Jew. Following the attack, the two fled the scene.
I hope the other one is caught too, and put in isolation for his violence.

If this war was meant to isolate Israel, it had the opposite effect

Jonathan Kay of the National Post's had some questionable positions at times, but here, he seems to get some things right about Israel's current crisis:
“The world stands disgraced” was the banner headline that Britain’s Guardian newspaper put on Thursday’s front page — a quote from a UN official outraged after Israeli shelling killed 15 civilians at a school being used as a shelter in Gaza.

War is hell, and this tragic accident was unusually hellish. So that sort of language is understandable coming from UN officials tasked with keeping Gazans safe. But when those words are selectively lifted for use as a sensational headline in a British newspaper, it raises eyebrows.

Syria’s ongoing civil war has generated more than 170,000 deaths. Islamists are destroying what remains of Christian civilization in Iraq. Russia is igniting the flames of war in eastern Ukraine, with the casualties thus far including 298 dead (80 of them children) in the destruction of Flight MH17 on July 17. And yet the planet’s reputation, we are to understand, somehow survived all this — until it was “disgraced” by Israel’s fighting men and women, who are waging war against a terrorist group that uses human shields. Really?

It should come as no surprise that this sort of coverage is coming from the same British media that promoted the bogus Jenin “massacre” story when Israel fought a similar campaign against Palestinian terrorists in 2002. One can only expect yet more award-winning cartoons from British cartoonists showing leaders of the Jewish state devouring Palestinian babies and the like. Some things don’t change.

But some things do. Unlike in similar conflicts in 2002, 2006, 2008 and 2012, this time around, the Arab world has been extremely muted in its support for Israel’s battlefield enemies.
While this is certainly true with Egypt, let's not think it says Saudi Arabia's changed - they're still bound to remain a Judenrein country for as long as nobody forcefully demands it be changed. They'll also remain a sharia-governed country for the same length of time. But Kay's take does have something to it here, and we can credit him for noting how the British media's propaganda about Jenin was phony. Yes, something has changed, though we shouldn't expect it to remain that way forever. But for now, it's good.

Lev Tahor and border problems in Canada

Canadian Lawyer spoke about the case of Lev Tahor, most of whom already fled from Canada for Guatemala, and they tell something very depressing about the blatant lawyer who defended the cult:
When Mamann arrived at the airport, four children had been taken into protective custody, but he was able to arrange for the release of the parents. Mamann, who is himself Jewish and fairly observant, says he’s known many Haredi families and was skeptical the allegations against the group could be true. “What I could say is that at the very least there is great suspicion about this community and a tremendous lack of cultural knowledge and cultural sensitivity of this community,” he says. “There just simply was a lack of trust on both sides of the table. And of course, when you have that, you have people doing crazy things like running away.”
So because he's Jewish, he feels he must defend these warped cultists and thinks it's impossible for a Haredi to commit an offense. And how classic of him to use moral equivalence and say distrust tainted both sides. This is not the WW2 era, and the authorities in Quebec are not the fascists people of Helbrans' standing chose to ignore.
Lev Tahor arrived in Canada over a decade ago, settling in the Ste-Agathe -des-Monts area of Quebec. Like most Haredi communities, they eschewed the modern world, instead focusing on studying the Torah. Their fundamentalist leanings meant morning prayer lasted for hours, people spoke only Yiddish, and women and girls wore a chador-like garment in public, covering everything but the oval of their face.
I guess Mamann doesn't think there's anything abnormal for a woman to wear a chador in Judaism, does he?

There's more at the link, and I hope the Quebec administration stands firm on prohibiting the children remaining there to get passports, something one of the Jewish agencies investigating the case supports too. At the same time, an eye must be kept on the remaining members of the cult, lest the parents try to smuggle them out of the country over the borders to the USA.

Turkey's deputy prime minister forbids women's laughter

Under Erdogan's dictatorship, murder rates of women skyrocketed. Now, one of Erdogan's minions is making things worse by forbidding women to laugh (Hat tip: Front Page Magazine):
Women should not laugh in public in Turkey, the Deputy Prime Minister has said in a speech on “moral corruption” in the country.

Bülent Arınç used a meeting for Eid al-Fitr on Monday to condemn perceived moral regression, consumerism and even excessive mobile phone use.

“She will not laugh in public. She will not be inviting in her attitudes and will protect her chasteness,” Mr Arınç said.

He called for Turkish people to rediscover the Koran and stop moral regression.

Targeting women once more, Arınç said women talk about unnecessary things on the phone.

“Women give each other meal recipes while speaking on the mobile phone. ‘What else is going on?’ ‘What happened to Ayşe’s daughter?’ ‘When is the wedding?’
I think this means he thinks women should be some kind of vegetables, and be brain-dead. Shudder. There's supposed to be a challenger to Erdogan in another election next month, but chances are the election will be rigged yet again, and the darkness in Turkey will continue.

Update: some Turkish women have defied the sick politician's demands. They're doing the right thing.

Haredi extremists in Beit Shemesh attack one of the soldiers defending them from real danger

A Haredi IDF member was attacked in Beit Shemesh by Haredi moonbats who consider the army worse than the jihadists endangering them:
Hareidi extremists attacked a reserve soldier returning home from the front Monday, according to several reports, as he came home to Beit Shemesh to visit his parents and pray at a local synagogue.

"His two children were very frightened," an eyewitness told Walla! news Tuesday. "The extremists cursed him, threw stones at his car, and ordered him to leave the neighborhood."

The incident unfolded on Hillel street at about 10:00 pm, according to the report. The extremists called the reservist a "Nazi" and "vermin."

Several other eyewitnesses told Arutz Sheva on Tuesday that friends and neighbors of the reserve soldier condemned and apologized for the incident, helped him recover and offered to pay for the damage.

The District Police has opened an investigation and "are expected to make arrests."

Several hareidi MKs sharply criticized the incident Tuesday, with some even going as far as calling the extremists "terrorists."

"There are limits," Shas Chairman Aryeh Deri said Tuesday morning. "The attack by Jewish extremists on a soldier as he prayed in synagogue is an act of terrorism."

"They should be treated as we treat terrorists," he continued. "A hand that raises itself against a soldier should be smacked."
Well isn't that great a man who's been working at the same time to undermine this country supposedly understands the danger of turning against people working overtime to protect those anarchists from the Hamas and the missiles they're firing at them. Even the Haredi MKs aren't innocent in this affair, as rabbi Dov Lipman makes clear:
Yesh Atid and Beit Shemesh resident MK and Rabbi Dov Lipman welcomed the condemnations of the attack by haredi politicians but said that the fierce attacks from the haredi world on the recently passed law for haredi conscription had contributed towards the atmosphere of hate towards the IDF.

“While I applaud the condemnation of the attack from haredi leaders and I know that only small numbers of extremists would ever attack soldiers, I don't think the haredi political and rabbinic leaders can claim complete innocence,” Lipman said. “Their non-stop incitement against the government and the suggestion that haredim should[n't] serve in the army plays a role here. Had the haredi community called 500,000 people to a prayer rally on behalf of the soldiers instead of against the draft law which implies against army service, I believe the picture would be very different even among the extremists.”
Deri and UTJ members Yaakov Litzman and Moshe Gafni owe an apology for their own role in this incitement. But who knows if they'll own up?

How Shannon Conley succumbed to Islam's influence

The Los Angeles Times told how the Coloradoan Conley became obsessed with aiding the cause of jihadism:
To those who knew her, Shannon Maureen Conley was a bright teenager lost in middle-class suburbia who went searching for love and purpose.

She thought she found it half a world away with a Tunisian man 13 years her senior who promised marriage and holy war. The plan went only as far as Denver International Airport, where Conley was arrested in April as she tried to board a plane to support Islamic fighters in Syria.

Conley told the FBI she was determined to be "defending Muslims on the Muslim homeland against people who are trying to kill them." If that was illegal, she added, she "would rather be in prison than do nothing."

The 19-year-old Colorado woman is now under federal indictment, charged with conspiracy to aid Islamic State, the extremist military force with ties to Al Qaeda that has been on the march across Iraq and Syria.

Her transformation from a smiling girl, often clad in shorts or jeans and a floppy hat, who chatted with friends, to a solemn, dreamy young woman wearing the long dresses and flowing head scarves of traditional Islam, is one that neighbors and school administrators said came relatively suddenly.

She had been "among the brightest kids" at Arvada West High School, said principal Rob Bishop, adding that she was the daughter of a professor at a Catholic university, was enrolled in honors courses and presented no discipline problems.

Sometime during her junior year, Bishop said, Conley had begun to wear traditional Muslim dress. Several girls complained that she was kneeling on the bathroom floor three times a day for her prayers.

"I talked to her about accommodating her to get her out of the bathroom and move her into an office in our school's front offices," Bishop said. Conley told him she was converting to Islam and seemed grateful for his support.

Neighbors, too, noticed the change in her appearance, and said she often seemed lonely and reflective. Many neighbors were not closely acquainted with Conley or her parents. Her mother, Ana Marie Conley, is an associate professor of economics at Regis College, while her father, John Conley, works in the computer field and teaches martial arts out of his garage on weekends, according to neighbors.

Robert Taylor, who lives nearby, said he would sometimes see Conley sitting alone in a neighborhood park, drifting silently on the playground swing.

"She just seemed kind of lost," he said.
She was. I'd figure she lost faith in societies with better beliefs, and grew detesting of civilized values, seeing Islam as a way to separate herself from the rest and live a form of quasi-isolation. She'll have to serve time now, and before she's released, I'm sure some want to know if she'll see a psychologist who can turn her around.

The true picture of Joel Teitelbaum: a coward

Tablet magazine can be a very mixed bag, with some articles fine and others dreadful, but here's an article they published about Satmar's founder that tells quite a bit about the true personality of a man who launched a Haredi sect that's been more trouble for Israel and many others than they're worth. Here's an example:
As I argue in greater detail in the following, Rabbi Yoel’s life, activities, and decisions during the Holocaust and his pressing need to explain and justify them thereafter offer a possible explanation for the extremism of his later views. Any fair examination of the historical record shows that Rabbi Yoel’s contribution to assisting Jewish refugees and to the rescue of Transylvanian Haredi Jews was negligible. Prior to the Holocaust, he ignored the dangers threatening the Jews of Transylvania and failed to engage in the preparation of rescue and aid plans. Although he became privy to reports on the extermination of the Jewish communities in Poland, given his position as a member of the Central Bureau and through his connections with the authorities, he refrained from calling on his followers to save or prepare themselves. On the contrary, he warned any would-be immigrants to Palestine or other countries that they were in danger of severely harming their Haredi way of life. Moreover, he refrained from cooperating with the Zionist—and even with the Haredi—leadership in addressing current issues or preparing for the impending threat and even opposed measures of a religious nature, such as prayer and fast days, which he feared would be perceived as a protest against the authorities.

When the danger of war became real and immediate, Rabbi Yoel did his best to equip himself and his closest circle with certificates or visas that would facilitate their escape to Palestine or the United States. At the same time, he thwarted all attempts at cooperation between the heads of the Orthodox communities and the Zionist organizations, which could have helped to rescue them. He failed to set a personal example and rejected his associates’ advice to prepare a hiding place or attempt to cross the border to Romania. Had he done so, some of his Hasidim may have done the same and thus survived.

When put to the test, he chose to save himself clandestinely after his own congregation had already been incarcerated in ghettos and to abandon his followers in the time of their harshest adversity. His conduct stands in stark contrast to that of other rabbis in his vicinity, many of whom rejected pleas to save themselves and accompanied their congregations to the transport trains, the extermination camps, and in some cases even into the gas chambers.

[...] In spite of the numerous reports of anti-Semitic occurrences in Germany and Poland, the Central Bureau, of which Rabbi Yoel was a prominent leader, took no actions to prepare for the imminent threat to Romanian Jewry. Moreover, the Bureau did nothing to try to revoke the requirement to prove Romanian citizenship, nor did it offer aid and relief to the Polish refugees. The same passive policy was adopted by several other organizations, such as the Jewish Party and the Union of Romanian Jews (Uniunea Evreilor Români). Other organizations, by contrast, undertook initiatives such as the formation of Jewish Self-Defense Brigades and a relief network for refugees, established by the Bureau of the Neolog Communities. (The Reform Movement in Hungary was called Neology.) Despite the prohibition and the risk involved, the Zionist youth movements maintained their activities, prepared for underground action, and at the same time trained pioneers for emigration to Palestine.

When the Goga government came to power in the late 1937, Rabbi Yoel decided to travel to Czechoslovakia. Fearing he may try to escape, leaders of his own community begged him not to abandon them at a time of crisis. In response, he argued that a tzadik could only perform his work in safety and, ignoring their pleas, departed as scheduled. A few weeks later, when the king dissolved the government, Rabbi Yoel returned to Satmar, and in his next sermon he justified having left his community. Although aware of the gravity of the situation, in his speech he offered no practical solutions and merely called upon his followers to put their trust in divine deliverance.

Through his involvement in rescue efforts and his connections with the Jewish leadership in Budapest, Rabbi Yoel was well aware of the danger to European Jewry in general and to the Hungarian Jews in particular. Nevertheless, he held that any initiative to revoke the anti-Jewish measures or protest against them was doomed to fail and could even exacerbate the situation. Thus, for instance, although aware of the violent activities initiated by the Romanian student organizations, some of which he experienced firsthand, he objected to the formation of the Jewish defense brigades.
And that's just the beginning. There's more telling how he did not prove himself a leader or offer any inspiration for his followers. In the followup article that tells more, it says:
During his stay in the Cluj ghetto, Rabbi Yoel Teitelbaum hid rather than position himself as a leader. On the rescue train, he avoided the other passengers, failed to encourage or to comfort them, and did not share the precious commodities provided by his followers with them. In Bergen-Belsen, too, despite the preferential treatment accorded him in the camp, he refrained from assuming a leadership role, even among the observant inmates. After his release, Rabbi Yoel elected to run a rescue campaign from the safety of Switzerland. His efforts to rescue Jewish children raised by gentiles were restricted to fundraising, and even in that task he failed abysmally. Once again, his conduct stands in stark contrast to that of other rabbis, who returned to their hometowns to lead their surviving flocks or worked relentlessly in the DP camps. All the sources describing the rescue activities of the Haredi community during the Holocaust, including archival sources, indicate that compared to other rabbis who survived the Holocaust, Rabbi Yoel’s contribution was negligible in both scope and significance.

After the Holocaust, Rabbi Yoel also turned his back on all those who had helped to rescue him. After settling in Palestine in 1946, he refrained from expressing any gratitude to the people and institutions that had been instrumental in his rescue and had endeavored to obtain certificates for him, among them Chief Rabbi Yitzhak Herzog, Agudath Israel leaders Rabbi Yitzhak Meir Levin and Rabbi Moshe Porush, and Ha-Mizrahi’s Rabbi Joseph Yitzhak Rotenberg. He scathingly attacked the institutions they headed and, unlike other Hasidic rebbes they helped rescue, refused to make even the slightest symbolic gesture of gratitude. Moreover, it seems he repudiated his benefactors on a personal level, too. As far as we know, Rabbi Yoel never sent any letters of gratitude or appreciation to any of the people or institutions involved in his rescue.
A selfish, spiteful and ungrateful man till the bitter end, it sounds like. He also called Zionists descendants of Amalekites, declared the Holocaust God's punishment for Zionism, which is another way of saying it was a crime to want to live in Israel proper.

And most mysterious is how, despite all these damning revelations, he succeeded in forming a community with a backwards, Orwellian groupthink mentality that even listened to his atrocious ideas of how they should handle say, their hair, shouldn't work for a living and self-support, discriminate against women in ways not all that different from how fascists did, and not think for themselves. Teitelbaum's son continues his wicked ways today, and leads many people into states of misery that'll take ages to repair. Today, it's high time the Satmar were confronted about all this, and told clearly why it's vital to think for yourself and earn a living to aid yourself too.

Former Christian in UK converts to Islam

Christian Today brings up the story of a woman who lost her way:
At university, Sarah Ager was known for her Christian faith. Her parents are Salvation Army ministers. She grew up going to church and being in the church choir. Belief in God and being a Christian were a fundamental part of her identity, until she converted to Islam when she was studying English in Leicester.

She wasn't peeved with the Church, didn't know much about Islam, and she didn't convert in order to marry a Muslim.

So what led her on this journey? She decided to look into Islam when she met some Turkish Muslims at university. "The main reason I started studying [Islam] was because I was embarrassed," she says.

"I knew nothing about Turkey or Islam, I didn't know what they believed; I was intimidated. I thought 'I have to at least Google this religion'."

But Sarah didn't stop at a quick Google search, she decided to take a course on Muslim women in literature as part of her degree. "There were two Muslim women wearing Hijabs on the course and I remember being intimidated and sitting at the other end of the room. I thought they must be really Muslim.

"But when they were speaking during the class, they had such a beautiful way of expressing their faith. I became more interested in finding out how they perceived God."

It's one thing to appreciate another religion, but what made her convert?

"Just one day I looked back and thought I wasn't a Christian anymore," she says.

"I can't remember the moment when I stopped believing that Jesus was the son of God, but I remember how I felt – I wasn't sure what I was or what I believed anymore. I had been so sure before."
I guess she was agnostic well before her conversion. Like various other converts, she remains ambiguous about what she thinks is wonderful about the Religion of Rape, offering no verses or passages to back up her argument. She also says:
"In the Qur'an there are often passages that say that you shouldn't judge something because you don't know if there is a part of that thing that God really loves."
But she won't back herself up? Again, I can't see what she's driving at. There's more ambiguity:
"When I put on a hijab, I'm reminded of how I want to present myself in the world," she says. [...]

"I think often people willingly ignore the peaceful message of the Quran and use it for their own advantage, it makes me incredibly sad. In the Qur'an it says you shouldn't force someone into religion – but then there are laws in Saudi Arabia which do.
She has effectively performed taqqiya. Koranic verse 8:39, for example, contradicts her defense. As for how she wants to be seen with a hijab, I've got a sad feeling that's because the Catholic wimple influenced it. That could partly explain why she failed to comprehend anything. Honestly, I believe such an outfit as the Catholic wimple outfit was a bad idea, if only because it was like a precursor to the hijab, and a form of wear that can deny the woman wearing it sunlight and vitamin D.

As noted, she was dishonest about the "messages" she speaks of in the Koran, which suggests there's more to this than meets the eye.

New Shas guru won't offer blessing to IDF

Shalom Cohen, the new spiritual leader for Shas whom I hesitate to call a rabbi, lets his disdain for the army be known:
“Do you think that the people of Israel need an army?” Rabbi Shalom Cohen asked during a sermon. “It is God almighty who fights for Israel.”

The foremost religious arbiter in the Shas movement raised eyebrows on Wednesday when, during a special prayer held at Jerusalem’s Western Wall for IDF soldiers, he remarked that “Israel doesn’t need an army.”

The comments by Cohen, the man who succeeded the late Rabbi Ovadia Yosef as spiritual leader of Shas, drew rebukes from secular Israelis, as IDF soldiers continue to operate in the Gaza Strip on the 17th day of Operation Protective Edge.

When stunned worshipers asked the rabbi to offer a blessing for IDF troops, he replied, “Do you think you are fighting? I am fighting for you. We screamed out to God: ‘Save us without inflicting anymore sorrow on the people of Israel.’” The head of Hiddush, a religious freedom lobbying group, lambasted the rabbi for the comments.

“If the country doesn’t need an army, then there’s no doubt that the yeshivot and Torah students don’t need budgets from the Treasury,” Uri Regev, the director- general of Hiddush, said. “From now on, they can put their faith in the Lord when it comes to asking for money to fund their education systems. We will help the ultra-Orthodox in saying earnest prayers for money to start growing on trees.”

“At the end of the day, most of us believe that we do need an army, but we are quite uncertain as to whether we need Shas,” Regev said.
Of course we don't need those phonies, but sadly, there's a segment of the public that thinks we do, that being the knee-jerk Haredis who'll vote for them, if anyone. Cohen has let many better people down by refusing to bless the soldiers fighting for his safety and wish them a safe return. He's a rabbi in name only.

Neturei Karta kreeps attended more anti-Israel demonstrations

Almost forgot, but in the past few weeks, Neturei Karta have been at their anti-Israel activities again, with this demonstration in London one of their sickest faustian pacts of late. They also attended a demonstration in Canada, and a local rabbi wrote in the Hamilton Spectator why nobody should think they're real representatives of the Jewish community:
So-called "rabbis" affiliated with a radical fringe group called Neturei Karta, dressed in traditional Jewish garb, rallied together with hundreds of anti-Israel protesters in downtown Hamilton this past Saturday.

The group, founded in 1938 and funded in part by various Islamic entities, is dedicated to the destruction of the Jewish state. Its members are part of a cadre of professional anti-Zionist protesters that travel worldwide to various anti-Israel rallies — Hamilton being one of its more recent stops. While the number of adherents is sometimes estimated to be in the thousands, in reality it may total no more than several hundred.

The sect, whose outward appearance is similar to many Hassidic groups, has no current or historic ties to any Hassidic group whatever. While professing to represent "authentic Judaism," these radicals have been unequivocally disenfranchised and shunned by the most religious and pious Jewish communities throughout Europe and the world.

While certain Hassidic groups maintain the belief that the establishment of a Jewish state should await the coming of the messiah, they do not support or advocate on behalf of terrorist entities determined to eradicate the Jewish state. This is precisely the policy of Neturei Karta.
I wouldn't be too sure most other Haredi movements don't support Islamofascism. After all, the Satmar's reps in Kiryas Joel met with delegates from the UAE a year ago, and some of their past members might have formed the Kartas in their modern incarnation. They also blamed the victims in the case of yeshiva students who were murdered by Hamas.

They may only number several hundred, but even that's more than dangerous enough. Let's recall the member who wanted to spy for Iran, another who vandalized a section of Yad Vashem's property, and a neighborhood in Mea Shearim where their followers may have a stronghold. Even if they don't number big, they can still cause a lot of danger, and again, that's why they were added to the ADL's list of worst anti-Israel movements.

CAIR takes part in pro-Hamas demonstration in Florida

CAIR came out in favor of the terrorist organization that helped found it:
Clad in the war garb of the jihad, the keffiyeh and chanting the Islamic death dirge, Khybar, Khybar, ya yahud, jaish Muhammad sayud.” The threat of Khybar is the threat of extermination harkening back to Muhammad’s annihilation of an entire tribe of Jews, the Quraya

Decked out in keffiyahs and stocked with vulgar posters, anti-Israel demonstrators have been descending upon cities across the United States rallying for what they call peace. One such group gathered on Sunday, July 20, 2014, just blocks from the Israeli consulate in Miami.

Photo of protest information card obtained at the Miami protest on July 20, 2014. Note, “Burning flags will not be allowed.”

The flier for this protest declares, “Stop the bombing – Stop the Killing – Free Palestine” and includes logos from: the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) Florida, the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA), Students for Justice in Palestine, the American Muslim Association of North America, American Muslims for Emergency & Relief, Syrian American Council of South Florida, and the American Muslims Foundation. Some of these groups have thousands of members across the country and their leaders are often featured prominently in the news as being representative of the Muslim-American community.

The event’s Facebook page indicates additional coalition sponsors including: Al-Awda Coalition, National Lawyers Guild (South Florida), CAIR among others. The same page declares the purpose of the event was “to support peace, liberation, and human rights.”

And initially, one mostly heard peaceful-sounding slogans like “Viva, Viva Palestina” and “No more killing, no more war.” These were interspersed with others like “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free” which means eliminating the Jewish State.

The “peace” aspect, however, was completely forgotten whenever a suspected Zionist appeared. One such man filming the event was accosted in a threatening manner by about six protestors, with one grabbing his arms from behind. The police had to calm the crowd as some rushed towards a passing vehicle carrying an Israeli flag. Later in the day, a small group of about eight Israel supporters arrived. At that point, the anti-Israel demonstrators shifted their focus to the pro-Israel group.

The anti-Israel protestors became increasingly hostile, to the point of invoking outrageous Islamist slogans.

In Arabic, they screamed:

“The martyr is God’s love.” This encourages one to die while committing Jihad — it is a celebration of terror attacks including suicide bombings.

“Khaybar, Khaybar Oh, Jew. Muhammad’s army will return.” This refers to a seventh-century massacre in which Muhammad’s army attacked the Jewish community of Khaybar in the Arabian Peninsula. The Jewish males who surrendered were beheaded; Muhammad and his soldiers then divided the women, children, and property. Islamists today routinely invoke this battle as a rallying cry to attack Jews.

In English, they yelled:

“We are Hamas!” openly confirming support for a group officially designated a terrorist organization by the United States, the European Union, Japan, Jordan, and Egypt.

“We are Jihad!” thereby calling for holy war.
And these kind of obscenities have become hallmarks of anti-Israel demonstrations. Another truly repulsive display of inhumanity.

Update: here's an old post from Smooth Stone that's still very relevant, discussing how nobody on the PC side cares when Jews are murdered.
