"Yellow Vest" infiltrator who yelled at Finkielkraut turns out to be an Islamofascist

Remember the reports of Alain Finkielkraut being screamed at with anti-semitic obscenities by alleged Yellow Vests? Turns out the worst offender was an Islamist already known to intel sources:
A “Yellow Vest” protestor who hurled anti-semitic abuse at French intellectual Alain Finkielkraut over the weekend has been identified as a radical Islamic extremist known to French intelligence agencies.

The abuse of Alain Finkielkraut, a Jewish intellectual who has railed against the policies of multiculturalism in the past, was caught on video and showed a man with shouting, “You racist, you’re a hater, you’re going to die, you’re going to hell, you Zionist,” Le Parisien reports.

The video provoked mass condemnation across the French political spectrum from French President Emmanuel Macron to populist leader Marine Le Pen who wrote on Twitter that is was “a detestable and shocking act, which illustrates the attempted infiltration of the Gilets Jaunes (Yellow Vests) by the anti-Semitic extreme-left movement.”

According to a police source, the man in the video has been identified as a radical Islamic extremist who has been under the watch of security services since being identified in the Salafist scene in 2014.
Irony comes in many forms, if this is to be considered such a thing. And this explains a lot of the infiltrations by anti-semites into where racial elements should be kept out. The organizers are going to have to start making serious efforts to keep out creeps like that if they want to maintain a good image everywhere.

TV anchorwoman faces disciplinary action for calling IDF soldiers "animals"

A TV newswoman who made denigrating comments about IDF soldiers who allegedly beat an Arabic suspect in terrorism, is now facing a possible trial:
Channel 13 anchorwoman Oshrat Kotler risks going to trial under section four of the Defamation Law and has been called in for a formal disciplinary hearing with the news station’s executives.

On Saturday night, while anchoring the news, Kotler referred to the IDF soldiers suspected of beating Palestinian detainees as “human animals.”

“When you send your children to the army, they are kids,” Kotler said. “You send them to the territories, and they come back as human animals. This is the result of the occupation.”

Following her statements, more than 2,000 listeners complained to the Office of the Second Authority for Television and Radio. Hundreds took to Twitter and politicians responded harshly.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu responded by saying that he is “proud of the IDF soldiers and loves them very much. Oshrat Kotler’s words deserve every condemnation.”

New Right Party leader and Education Minister Naftali Bennett appealed to Attorney-General Avichai Mandelblit to put the anchorwoman on trial.

“IDF soldiers are sacrificing their lives so that all of us, including Oshrat Kotler, can sleep quietly,” Bennett said.

He said the only “human animals” he knows are terrorists who murder children in their beds, girls who go for walks or entire families traveling on a highway.

“IDF soldiers are our children and our strength,” Bennett said. “Kotler’s words damage the reputation of the heroic IDF soldiers and slander them.”
This is a stupefying slander tactic that may have been used after WW2 and Vietnam, and for this Kotler should at the very least resign her position voluntarily, and not waste the public's tax money on her loathsome pseudo-reporting.

Anti-semites infiltrating Yellow Vests need to be purged

I always realized the Yellow Vests weren't exactly innocent, and now, a very sad case came up wherein Alain Finkielkraut was yelled at by alleged attendants using obscenities:
French philosopher and writer Alain Finkielkraut was came under a verbal anti-Semitic attack by Yellow Vest protesters in central Paris.

The incident on Saturday was captured on camera, with protesters yelling “Dirty Jew,” “you’re a hater, you’re going to die, you’re going to hell,” “Dirty Zionist,” “France is ours,” and “return to Tel Aviv.” Police intervened to protect Finkielkraut.

French President Emmanuel Marcon condemned the attack in a series of tweets. “The anti-Semitic insults he has been subjected to are the absolute negation of what we are and what makes us a great nation. We will not tolerate it,” Macron tweeted.
But is that an altruistic statement, or, is it only because these aren't Muslims who're making the filthy remarks? For now, it's definitely a shame this had to happen, as it embarrasses the causes the Yellow Vests are fighting for. Marion Marechal said there were violent leftists infiltrating the movement, and that could be so. Nevertheless, that something like this should happen is disturbing.

Now, there's a protest specifically dedicated to protesting anti-semitism, and it says here:
The fact that 14 national political parties are mobilizing to protest – not against a mixed bag of hate victimologies drafted against Islamophobia, refugees or gays, but focusing exclusively on antisemitism – is a breakthrough.

The main rally will, of course, take place in Paris, at the fabled Place de la République at 7 p.m.

The Right-Left polarization had put French Jews in a difficult position, just as the threat to bipartisanship for American Jewry or the Corbyn factor for British Jewry.

A French approach views “antisemitism as violating the values of the Republic, beginning with ‘Liberty, Equality and Fraternity.’”

Indeed, this is an occasion to emphasize those values for the absorption of immigrants from backgrounds that are steeped in antisemitism.
Indeed, I'd like to know if anybody attending is going to bring up the subject of Islamofascists entering the country? Because if they don't, and if they won't make a call for ensuring the right to self-defense by being allowed to purchase firearms for self-defense, then they've failed whatever message they're trying to convey. They're going to have to show they're up to the challenge, and if not, I don't see what's the use if they can't bring up important ideas.

Ilhan Omar and company were elected because of their bigotry, tragically enough

Caroline Glick says the modern conduct and beliefs in the Democratic party are exactly why Ilhan Omar and others like her were elected to Congress:
Rep. Ilhan Omar is an antisemite and, as the actions of the congressional Democratic leadership last week made clear, hating Jews is a perfectly acceptable position in today’s Democratic Party.

Consider the chronology of events. Last month, Rep. Steven King (R-IA) was stripped of his committee assignments following a statement he made to the New York Times where he seemed to legitimize white supremacism. (King insists his remark was deliberately taken out of context).

Last week, Rep. Omar tweeted another statement that was inarguably antisemitic. Omar argued that the only reason that Congressional Republicans seek to censure her and her colleague Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) for their anti-Jewish bigotry is because Jewish money dictates their actions.

That is, she defended herself against allegations of antisemitism by proving, yet again, that she is an antisemite.

The Congressional Democratic leadership responded to Omar’s statements not by censuring her, let alone stripping her of her committee assignments – including her membership on the House Foreign Affairs Committee. Rather Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD), and their colleagues reacted to Omar’s presentation of further proof that she hates Jews and sees the world through the distorted lens of antisemitism by asking her to apologize.

That is, she was allowed to get away with it.

Indeed, when Omar was asked if she feared that her bigotry would cause her to be stripped of her committee assignments, she responded confidently, “Absolutely not.”

In the event, Omar issued a self-evidently fake apology, in which she effectively repeated the antisemitic slur that Jews dictate policy through the pro-Israel lobby, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), for which she was apologizing. She then proceeded to re-tweet a post that backed up her contention that Jews control U.S. policy with their money.

What does the Democratic leadership’s decision to give her a pass for bigotry tell us about the nature of today’s Democratic Party?

Hoyer as well as Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Elliot Engel (D-NY)are strongly pro-Israel. Pelosi, while less outspoken, has never been a foe of the Jewish state or of American Jews who support Israel and seek to secure continued bipartisan support for a strong U.S. alliance with the Middle East’s only democracy.

And yet, all of these leaders gave a pass to a woman who effectively said that American Jews exert malign and all-powerful influence over the Congress with their “Benjamins,” (which we now all know, thanks to Omar’s slur, refers to $100 bills).
Read it all to understand more.

Update: here's more on the case from Alex Grobman.

Sweden's refusal to move embassy to Jerusalem is no shock

The rabid anti-semitism conveyed in Sweden's current government is rather predictable at this point:
The Swedish government has totally ruled out moving its embassy in Israel to Jerusalem following a request by the Liberal Party with Foreign Minister Margot Wallström saying a move would contradict European Union convention.

[...] Wallström rejected the calls to move the embassy saying, “it was during the Swedish EU Presidency that we agreed to respect what the UN has said about Jerusalem’s very special status and position, and its call not to open embassies in Jerusalem.”
They rejected even calls within their own parliament to move the embassy, choosing instead to be sellouts to the UN. Pure disgrace.

Merger of Jewish Home and National Union official

Well here's a positive note on how things are going so far in this election:
Bayit Yehudi and National Union plan to run as one list in the upcoming election, signing the agreement overnight Thursday after a long negotiating period.

The parties will alternate seats on the list, with Bayit Yehudi getting the odd numbers and National Union the even. If the list has an odd number of seats, then there will be a rotation for the last seat.

National Union will get first choice of cabinet posts – meaning that if the party is in the government, National Union leader Bezalel Smotrich will likely become a minister - but if there is only one ministry given to the party in coalition negotiations, then that, too, will be rotated between Smotrich and Bayit Yehudi chairman Rabbi Rafi Peretz.

In addition, all decisions for the faction will be made by the leaders of both parties.
This is good, but they should still bring in more like the Yachad party of Eli Yishai, if only for the sake of even better unity. Will they be willing to do that by the end of next week? We'll see.

UTJ member accused of using political influence to protect Haredi child molestor from Australia

United Torah Judaism member Yaakov Litzman's been accused of using his powers to defend the Australian child molestor Malka Leifer, whose extradition back to Australia has still be delayed, most offensively:
Deputy Health Minister MK Ya’acov Litzman was questioned Thursday at the National Fraud Investigation Unit in Lahav on suspicion of committing offenses of integrity, following a covert investigation that began several months ago.

The investigation is being conducted under the supervision of the Jerusalem District Attorney’s Office and with the approval of the attorney-general.

Litzman is suspected of obstructing legal proceedings by working to obtain false papers in order to prevent the extradition of Malka Leifer, an ultra-Orthodox pedophile who was arrested in Israel in February 2018. Victorian police fought to bring Leifer back to Australia to face 74 charges of child sexual abuse.

According to reports, Litzman is suspected of trying to obtain psychiatric medical evaluations psychiatric medical evaluations that would prevent her extradition.

His office said that he was “summoned to the police today for an affair related to a public request for help, and he gave his full testimony and answered all the questions as required.”

But Manny Waks, CEO of Kol V’Oz, said, “We have long suspected high-level interference in the Malka Leifer case, and these serious allegations against Israel’s Deputy Health Minister, Rabbi Ya’acov Litzman, confirms the ongoing suspicion many have regarding this case.”

Waks said that while he would view Litzman as innocent until proven guilty, the minister’s “appalling track record speaks for itself,” noting that Litzman defended a recent visit to convicted sex offender Rabbi Eliezer Berland. He said that the minister likewise informed Leifer’s alleged victims in a chance encounter at the Knesset that he does not support them or Leifer’s extradition.
This is exactly what's wrong with ultra-Orthodox society. Not only do they take a lenient view of sex offenders, men like Litzman practically defend repugnant criminals too. He should be forced to resign his posts, and resign from politics altogether. He's precisely the reason why a growing amount of the public's got a low opinion of Haredis.

Update: see also this report on Israel Hayom, and on Israel National News.

Rape and murder must be called what they are

World Israel News makes clear that the rape and murder of Ori Ansbacher was exactly those two forms of abominations, and that we shouldn't allow the PLO and Hamas to deceive us:
It’s the era of the #MeToo movement, even for terrorists.

Following the gruesome killing of young Jewish teen Ori Ansbacher in a nature park on the outskirts of Jerusalem, Palestinian terror groups have attempted to distance themselves from the killer due to the sexual nature of the assault.
Wait, seriously? That's one part where I would advise not to take taqqiya at face value, because lies are always possible coming from jihadists, and rape is commonplace among many of them.
Aida Touma-Suleiman, an Arab Knesset member, made the outrageous claim that “the rape and murder of Ori Ansbacher is a sex-related crime … the Palestinian criminal … can’t possibly be part of a national liberation.”

The question is: If it was just a sex-related crime, why did the suspect enter Israel looking for a Jewish victim? Couldn’t he have just carried out his perverse urges on an Arab girl in Hebron?

Touma-Suleiman, who made a name for herself with women’s issues and who heads the Committee for the Advancement of Women, appears to show here where her priorities lie. When it comes to defending women from assault or defending the Palestinian war against Israel from bad press, it seems the latter comes first.

Facts are stubborn things. Arafat Irfayia left his home in Hebron with a knife to carry out an attack on Jews. “I entered Israel with a knife because I wanted to become a martyr and murder a Jew,” Irfayia said. “I met the girl by chance.”

Irfayia’s family identifies with Hamas
. He has disseminated Hamas propaganda himself. Israeli authorities arrested him in 2017 for staying in Israel illegally and being in possession of a large kitchen knife. In a move hardly flattering of Israel’s security services, they released him even though he said he’d “come back here with a knife.”

So while Fatah, Hamas and Islamic Jihad refuse to take credit for the killing, and the Palestinian Prisoner’s Club hasn’t yet sent a lawyer to represent Irfayia, they’re not fooling anyone. Irfayia is the true face of the “Palestinian Liberation movement.” He is yet another product of a culture that marinates its people in Jew hatred, just one more jihadist looking for his 72 virgins.
And even before that, he looks for women of any background to victimize. He most definitely should get the death sentence, and this time, the legal system would do well to support the idea of getting rid of the monster for good. And rape/murder must always be referred to as what they are.

If the French government's serious about tackling anti-semitism, they shouldn't blame the Yellow Vests

Some more terrible incidents involving anti-semitic vandalism took place in France, and it looks like the politicians are searching for cheap excuses to avoid recognizing Islam's role in them:
The French government called on the authorities on Tuesday to crack down on anti-Semitic offenses after a spate of anti-Jewish graffiti and vandalism hit the country this past weekend.

Government spokesman Benjamin Griveaux blamed instigators on the fringe of the weekly “yellow vest” economic protests. He told France 2 television that “those who are committing violent acts, openly anti-Semitic or racist acts must be charged and severely punished.”

But as the government’s own interior minister pointed out only the day before, anti-Semitism was a growing phenomenon even before the protests began last November.

On Monday, Interior Minister Christophe Castaner disclosed that there had been a huge upswing in police reports of anti-Semitic offenses between 2017 and 2018 – from 311 incidents to 541, a surge of 74 percent. His office later clarified that 183 of them involved physical assaults — and at least one murder — while 358 were verbal threats or insults.

“Anti-Semitism is spreading like poison,” Castaner said at the Paris memorial for Ilan Halimi, a young Jewish Frenchman kidnapped by a gang for ransom, tortured for three weeks and then murdered in 2006. Memorial planners discovered that a tree planted at the site in Halimi’s honor had been cut down.

There were several other incidents over the past few days in the capital whose cumulative effect shocked the government into speaking out. The word “Juden” (German for Jew) was painted on a bagel bakery window, and large swastikas were found scrawled on mailboxes showing a photo of Simone Veil, a Jewish former government minister. Graffiti lashing out at President Emmanuel Macron by using anti-Semitic tropes has also appeared on the building of French daily Le Monde.

Although the numbers indicate that Jew-hatred is increasing in the country, Jewish citizens are not immigrating to Israel in larger numbers. There was a spike in 2015, when almost 7,500 made Aliyah, but the figures have gone down since, with only some 2,600 moving to Israel in 2018.
Well it wouldn't be that much of an emergency if anybody would demand the Islamists be moved out of France and other European countries where they've poisoned the wells too. And while the Yellow Vests obviously aren't saints, let alone a fully organized movement, it's pathetically cheap to blame them when Islamofascists are obviously still a serious threat to security, and they're bound to be the ones behind the vandalism of Halimi's memorial site. If any alleged YV are behind the anti-semitic graffiti at Le Monde's office, I'll admit that's peculiar, since he's proven anything but respectful to the Jewish community, recalling he wanted to honor traitor general Petain. But chances are that the particular incident at Le Monde was done by pro-government sources just to make the YV look bad. And in any case, the government definitely shouldn't be scapegoat-hunting, rather than facing challenging questions and answers.

I hope the tree and boxes are repaired, and that security cameras will be installed to make sure they can spot anyone attacking the sites and stop them.

Again, the small right-wing Knesset parties had better unite

The prime minister himself has urged it:
In a meeting Monday night with the leaders of the religious Zionist movement, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned that it is critical for the small parties that represent its various facets to unite before the upcoming elections.

They must do so, he insisted, “to save 6-to-7 mandates for the right-wing bloc. We can’t lose these votes.”

The Jewish Home, Otzma LeYisrael, Yachad and National Union parties are currently running separately for the 21st Knesset, to be elected on April 9th. In most polls, none of them are currently passing the 3.25 percent threshold, which would lead to tens of thousands of votes being thrown out.

This could be disastrous, Netanyahu stated bluntly.

“At the end, it’s either [going to be] a left-wing government or a right-wing government. The splintering of the right will certainly lead to the elections being lost.”
If they don't unite, nobody should even vote for those small parties that refuse to show unity and recognize the vitality of it. They're going to have to decide, because the country's safety is at stake, especially in a time when Iran's horrors could soon be unleashed.

Ilhan Omar keeps unrepentantly attacking Jews

Muslim Congresswoman Ilhan Omar's antisemitism knows no bounds. She recently attacked AIPAC:
Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) on Monday apologized for antisemitic remarks in which she implied Republicans are being bribed into supporting Israel — but ended her statement by taking a shot at AIPAC, referring to its role in U.S. politics as “problematic.”

“Anti-Semitism is real and I am grateful for Jewish allies and colleagues who are educating me on the painful history of anti-Semitic tropes,” Omar said in a statement shared to Twitter. “My intention is never to offend my constituents or Jewish Americans as a whole. We have to always be willing to step back and think through criticism, just as I expect people to hear me when others attack me for my identity. This is why I unequivocally apologize.”

At the same time, I reaffirm the problematic role of lobbyists in our politics, whether it be AIPAC, the NRA or the fossil fuel industry. It’s gone on too long and we must be willing to address it,” the Minnesota Democrat continued.

Earlier Monday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) insisted that Omar immediately apologize for tweets saying that members of Congress are being paid by a powerful interest group to support Israel.
I think Pelosi's demanding it now isn't enough, because they haven't tried to get Omar off committees. Lee Zeldin doesn't think Omar was convincing:
Zeldin said there is a “double standard” with how Democrats rushed to criticize Rep. Steve King (R-IA) for his white nationalism while they rushed away from condemning Omar’s anti-Semitism, adding he does not think her apology was “sincere.”

“The apology itself states that it’s an unequivocal apology, but it’s filled with equivocation,” Zeldin stated.
President Trump's also condemned her:
President Donald Trump addressed the controversy around recent antisemitic statements by Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) on Monday evening, telling reporters on Air Force One that she should be “ashamed” of what she had said.

“I think she should be ashamed of herself. I think it was a terrible statement and I don’t think her apology was adequate,” the president said, according to a pool report. Asked what Omar should have said instead, Trump answered: “She knows what to say.”
Including, in two words, "I resign". Exactly what she should be doing already, but alas, the Democrats so far, aren't getting her off committee panels she doesn't belong on. And if not, then they have no defense for what they are now.

John Nolte has more on the hatemongers the Democrats have come to embrace, and what their terrible policies have led to.
