1 in 4 European Jews afraid to wear kippah, Jewish symbols in public, survey shows

Survey conducted among 5100 Jews; in France 40% of Jews surveyed said they avoid wearing such items in public.

The Jerusalem Post (Oct 16) — A quarter of respondents in a major survey of Jews from nine European countries said they avoid visiting places and wearing symbols that identify them as Jews for fear of anti-Semitism.

Fear of wearing a kippah and other identifiably Jewish items was especially strong in Sweden, where 49 percent of 800 respondents said they refrained from such actions, in a survey conducted this year among more than 5,100 Jews by the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights.

In France, 40 percent of approximately 1,200 Jews said they avoided wearing such items in public, followed by Belgium with 36 percent, according to preliminary results from the survey, obtained by JTA.

In total, 22 percent of respondents said they avoided “Jewish events or sites” because of safety concerns.

“The results show that a majority of European Jews are experiencing a rise in anti-Semitism,” Gert Weisskirchen, a former representative of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe for fighting anti-Semitism, said Tuesday at a conference in Kiev.

The survey, which began Sept. 3, 2012 and closed last month, was conducted online in France; Britain; Belgium; Germany; Sweden; Italy; Hungary; Romania and Latvia. The full report is due to be published next month in Vilnius.

In Hungary, 91 percent of more than 500 respondents said anti-Semitism has increased in the past five years. That figure was 88 percent in France; 87 percent in Belgium and 80 percent in Sweden. In Germany, Italy and Britain, some 60 percent of respondents identified a growth in anti-Semitism, compared to 39 percent in Latvia.

Figures for people who said they had experienced an anti-Semitic incident in the 12 previous months were 30 percent for Hungary; 21 percent for France and 16 percent in Germany.

The wounded US Army Ranger’s salute during a purple heart ceremony that left the room weeping

The Blaze (Oct 16) — Wounded, bandaged and hooked up to tubes in an Afghanistan intensive care unit, a U.S. Army Ranger, thought by hospital staff to be unconscious, heard his commander’s voice and addressed him with the iconic symbol of respect: a salute.

U.S. Army Ranger Josh Hargis, wounded at a base in Afghanistan, raises his hand in salute during his Purple Heart ceremony. He was thought to be unconscious and raised his arm despite a doctor initially trying to restrain him.

U.S. Army Ranger Josh Hargis, wounded at a base in Afghanistan, raises his hand in salute during his Purple Heart ceremony. He was thought to be unconscious and raised his arm despite a doctor initially trying to restrain him.

Josh Hargis, a Purple Heart recipient with the 3rd Ranger Battalion, was injured after 13 improvised explosive devices went off while he was conducting a mission in Afghanistan to capture a high value target, according to the website Guardian of Valor. Several members of the unit were killed by a woman wearing a suicide vest and others injured by the IEDs that went off afterward.

Hargis’ commander sent his wife, Taylor, a letter explaining what her husband endured along with a photo, which the Guardian of Valor is calling the “salute seen around the world.”

Before being transferred from Afghanistan to Germany where he would make his flight back to America, Hargis had a Purple Heart pinned on to his blanket in a ceremony, which included other Rangers, doctors and nurses at his bedside.

“During the presentation the [Ranger Regimental] Commander publishes the official orders verbally and leaned over Josh to thank him for his sacrifice. Josh, whom everybody in the room (over 50 people) assumed to be unconscious, began to move his right arm under the blanket in a diligent effort to salute the commander as is customary during these ceremonies,” the letter read. ”Despite his wounds, wrappings, tubes and pain, Josh fought the doctor who was trying to restrain his right arm and rendered the most beautiful salute any person in that room had ever seen.”

In this emotional moment, “grown men began to weep and we were speechless at a gesture that speak volumes about Josh’s courage and character,” the letter continued. “The picture, which we believe belongs on every news channel and every news paper is attached. I have it hanging above my desk now and will remember it as the single greatest event I have witnessed in my 10 years in the Army.”

Analysis: Turkey’s unprecedented act of betrayal against Israel

If Turkey did blow cover of Israeli spy ring in Iran, it would violate unwritten code of conduct that governs relations between allied intelligence agencies.

Turkish PM Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu

Turkish PM Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu

The Jerusalem Post (Oct 17) — In April 2012, Iran announced that it had uncovered a spy ring numbering 15 operatives working at the behest of Israel. Iranian authorities fingered the operatives as being responsible for the killings of nuclear scientists in recent years. Tehran had long suspected the Mossad as the mastermind of these operations. In announcing the arrests, Iran touted the apprehension of “Zionist spies” and the revelations regarding “Zionist” intelligence activity in a neighboring country.

The announcement, which didn’t garner much attention at the time, takes on added importance Thursday just hours after The Washington Post reported that Turkish intelligence revealed the identities of 10 Iranian spies working for Israel. According to the report, Iranian agents would meet with their Mossad handlers on Turkish soil.

This information was revealed by the newspaper’s senior foreign affairs analyst, David Ignatius, a journalist who is known to maintain extensive contacts with both the American and Israeli intelligence communities. If the report is accurate – and it is difficult to doubt the credibility of Ignatius’ sources – then we are talking about a very egregious – even unprecedented – act. In fact, this is the basest act of betrayal imaginable.

For over 50 years, Israel and Turkey were strategic allies. At the heart of this relationship were the extremely close ties between the Mossad and Military Intelligence on one hand, and the Turkish MIT and its military intelligence apparatus on the other hand. These ties were first established in 1958, and they were an integral part of the “Trident” partnership that also included Iran’s intelligence services during the reign of the Shah. It was only recently that Israeli intelligence chiefs permitted archived, previously classified material about the nature of this special relationship to be released for public consumption.

Obamacare’s Website Is Crashing Because It Doesn’t Want You To Know How Costly Its Plans Are

Obamacare websiteForbes (Oct 14) A growing consensus of IT experts, outside and inside the government, have figured out a principal reason why the website for Obamacare’s federally-sponsored insurance exchange is crashing. Healthcare.gov forces you to create an account and enter detailed personal information before you can start shopping. This, in turn, creates a massive traffic bottleneck, as the government verifies your information and decides whether or not you’re eligible for subsidies. HHS bureaucrats knew this would make the website run more slowly. But they were more afraid that letting people see the underlying cost of Obamacare’s insurance plans would scare people away…

Political objectives trumped operational objectives

The answer is that Obamacare wasn’t designed to help healthy people with average incomes get health insurance. It was designed to force those people to pay more for coverage, in order to subsidize insurance for people with incomes near the poverty line, and those with chronic or costly medical conditions.

Sex jihad of Tunisian girl in Syria: “They promised me paradise, so I gave myself to 152 men”

While Islamic apologists insist that the “sex jihad” is a fabrication, stories like this continue to increase in number. “Sex jihad of Tunisian girl in Syria: ‘They promised me paradise, so I gave myself to 152 men,” by Cheradenine Zakalwe for Islam Versus Europe, October 14:

I’ve seen some reports in the mainstream media claiming the Syrian “sex jihad” stories are a myth. Some of the stories I’ve seen in the Tunisian press strongly suggest otherwise.

“You will go to paradise, my sister” was the promise they made to her before convincing her to leave for jihad in Syria. She was 21. Veiled from the age of 17. She attended history classes at the Faculty of Manouba before abandoning her studies and leave for Syria in the company of her husband “orfi”.

It was in June 2012 that she left Tunisian territory for Turkey where she spent a week before going to Syria. Once she had arrived at Mont al-Arbaine, her husband forced her to wear the niqab and explained to her what jihad al nikah was.

Immediately divorced, the young woman married one of the leaders of Jabhat al Norsra, Abou Ayoub. Whom she divorced to marry another jihadist… And then another and another… In total, she had 152 “husbands”.

Every week, every jihadette had the right to 5 new “husbands”. The happy union of the jihadette du nikah and the jihadist lasted only a few hours, until the desires of the jihadist were satisfied…

Queens, New York: Silver-Painted Swastikas Were Scrawled Across Cars, Fences and Garages


NEW YORK (CBS NewYork October 11) — Residents of the Bellerose section of Queens woke up Friday to find messages of hate scrawled around their neighborhood.

Swastikas marked many cars, a fence, and a garage, CBS 2′s Tamara Leitner reported.

Carolyn Lyew said her blue Toyota was covered in swastikas near the corner of 87th Avenue and 256th Street.

“I’m just hoping it’s kids in the neighborhood who are not aware because anything else is unconscionable,” she said.

Lyew was not the only target.

“I was, what do you call it? Awakened by the police knocking on the door,” Bob Figueroa said.

On Friday morning authorities initially discovered 11 vandalized cars. Four of those cars were tagged with swastikas. By the end of the day the count had reached 18.

The vandals hit four blocks and scribbled on cars with sliver spray paint. Swastikas were also found on a garage and a nearby fence, police said.

Synagogues in Germany hit by over 80 attacks between 2008 and 2012

Israeli experts says there’s a strong connection between anti-Israelism and anti-Semitism behind the attacks.

Roonstrasse Synagogue in Cologne.

Roonstrasse Synagogue in Cologne.

The Jerusalem Post (Oct 13) — The German government announced in a written statement last week that at least 82 attacks took place on synagogues within a five year period.

In response to a parliamentary questionnaire by the German Left Party, the federal government wrote that most of the attacks (24) occurred in Germany’s most populous state of North Rhine-Westphalia. The state of Rhineland-Palatinate registered 13 attacks, the second largest number of anti-Jewish assaults on synagogues.

In 2010, The Jerusalem Post reported that a synagogue in the city of Worms, in Rhineland- Palatinate state, was attacked by arsonists.

The vandals left a note connecting their torching of the synagogue with the Israel-Palestinian conflict. The regional paper Wiesbadener Kurier reported at the time that German police found eight copies of a note written in “awkward” German, claiming responsibility for the blaze.

“So long as you do not give the Palestinians peace, we are not going to give you peace,” read the note.

According to German media reports, the yearly numbers of synagogue attacks varied between 21 in 2008 to nine in 2010.

The number of cases, which were documented by the Federal criminal agency, covered property damage (roughly 30 instances) and the use of symbols from constitutionally banned organizations (29 cases). An additional 17 cases involved incitement to hate.

Dr. Manfred Gerstenfeld, a leading Israeli expert on modern anti-Semitism, told the Post on Sunday, “Israel has been frequently blackened in Europe over many years by leading politicians, media and senior members of civil society. This has helped, bringing out again… the classic anti-Semitism which was latent and politically incorrect after the Second World War yet never disappeared. Laying the connection between the extreme anti-Israelism and classic anti-Semitism is largely taboo in European circles, even though it is obvious.”

He continued, “At the beginning of the past decade, the University of Bielefeld found that 51 percent of Germans agreed with the demonizing statement that Israel behaves toward the Palestinians like the Nazis behaved toward the Jews. In 2011, the same university asked Germans whether they agreed with the statement that Israel conducts a war of extermination against the Palestinians. Forty-seven percent of those polled answered in the affirmative. If so many people have such an unfounded, extreme, wicked opinion about others, all that that indicates is that one self has a criminal mindset. In such a societal climate much worse things can happen than graffiti and other attacks on synagogue buildings.”

IDF uncovers Palestinian terrorist tunnel leading from Gaza to Kibbutz in Israel

Entrance to 1.7-km-long tunnel discovered at kibbutz Ein Hashlosha reportedly near a kindergarten; IDF: Tunnel was built to kidnap civilians, soldiers or carry out attack on the community.

The Jerusalem Post (Oct 13) — The IDF recently uncovered a Palestinian terrorist tunnel leading from the Gaza Strip to Kibbutz Ein Hashlosha, they announced on Sunday.

The tunnel was dug in order to either kidnap civilians and soldiers, or to infiltrate the community and carry out an atrocity in it, the army believes.

The tunnel was 1.7 km in length and represents a grave attempt by Palestinian terrorists to perpetrate an attack, army sources added.

The entrance of the tunnel on the Israeli side was reportedly dug near a kindergarten.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu praised the IDF for unearthing the tunnel, his spokesman said.

The Coordinator of Activities in the Territories, Major-General Eitan Dangot called for Israel to stop the transfer of construction materials to the Gaza Strip following the IDF’s announcement, Israel Radio reported.

Leaders from communities near the Gaza border called for the the IDF to revoke its previous decision to pull soldiers out from deployments on frontline communities on northern and southern borders.

Sharia in action in Iran: “Network of homosexuals and satanists” arrested at birthday party

The Guardian (Oct 10) — Iran’s revolutionary guards have announced the arrest of “a network of homosexuals and satanists” in the western city of Kermanshah, close to the country’s border with Iraq, prompting fresh alarm over the treatment of gay people in the Islamic republic.

The news website of the revolutionary guards in Kermanshah province, home to the country’s Kurd ethnic minority, reported on Thursday that their elite forces had dismantled what it claimed to be a network of homosexuals and devil-worshippers.

…Until recently same-sex sodomy was punishable by death but a new amendment to the penal code, approved in 2012, has brought new changes. Under the new penal code, in effect, the person who played an active role will be flogged 100 times if the sex was consensual and he was not married, but the one who played a passive role will still be put to death regardless of his marriage status. Punishment for mosahegheh (lesbianism) is 100 lashes for all individuals involved, but it can lead to the death penalty if the act is repeated four times.

Unlike homosexuality, which is punishable by death, transsexuality in Iran has been legal since a fatwa was issued in 1987 by the late Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini on their behalf. Although transsexuality is legal, the social stigma means that they can have an even worse life than gay people.

In September 2007, Iran’s former president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad famously denied homosexuals existed in the Islamic republic. “In Iran we don’t have homosexuals like in your country,” he told a jeering audience at Columbia University in New York during his UN visit.

Back home, Siamak Ghaderi, a journalist working for the state news agency, Irna, proved him wrong by publishing a series of interviews with the country’s homosexuals but was later arrested and sentenced to jail. He is currently in prison serving a four year prison term for “insulting the president” and “spreading propaganda against the regime”, and was reportedly lashed 60 times in 2012.

Who just compared Obamacare to American slavery and soviet communism?

Dr. Benjamin Carson is a role model to me. The fact that he said this is significant. He grew up with no resources, but with guidance from his single mother he became one of the world’s top neurosurgeons, founded a very successful scholarship fund for gifted kids, and much more.

“Who just compared Obamacare to American slavery and soviet communism?” TheBlaze, October 11, 2013:

Dr. Benjamin Carson

Dr. Benjamin Carson

Dr. Benjamin Carson declared Friday that “Obamacare is the worst thing that has happened in this nation since slavery.”

Carson, a former professor of neurosurgery, oncology and pediatrics at Johns Hopkins University, spoke Friday at the Values Voters Summit in Washington.

“I have to tell you, you know, “Obamacare” is really, I think, the worst thing that has happened in this nation since slavery,” Carson said. “In a way, it is slavery, in a way because it is making all of us subservient to the government.”

The statement prompted a strong standing ovation.

“It was never about health care,” Carson continued. “It was about control and that’s why – that’s why when this administration took office it didn’t matter that the country was going off the cliff economically. All forces were directed toward getting this legislation passed.”

Carson rose to prominence earlier this year for his speech at the National Prayer Breakfast in Washington, and has fielded some calls to run for president in 2016. Carson didn’t address that in his remarks, but is in company at the summit with numerous other presumed Republican contenders including Sens. Rand Paul, Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio.

“Vladimir Lenin, one of the fathers of socialism, said that socialized medicine is the keystone to the establishment of a socialist state,” Carson said. “Some people say, oh come on, you’re being paranoid. Why would you bring up something like that. I would say if you know anything about history, how could you not bring that up.”

Sources: Terrorists making practice runs on US flights

WTC911APAccording to WTSP in Tampa, terrorists are making practice runs on U.S. flights in preparation for an airline terrorist attack. WTSP said a memo it found was from a union that is comprised of pilots working for major airlines, and the memo wrote that terrorist dry runs have already been attempted, notably one on a flight inbound to Orlando on September 2.

Breitbart (Oct 11) — According to the memo, on September 2, U.S. Airways Flight 1880 left Reagan National Airport in Washington D.C. to fly to Orlando International. Crew members stated that just after takeoff, a group of four “Middle Eastern” men acted in a suspicious manner. One bolted from his seat in coach toward the flight deck door, only to swerve to the forward bathroom “for a considerable length of time.” While the first man was in the bathroom, the three other men started changing their seats, opening overhead bins, and “generally making a scene.” Witnesses said they appeared to be intent on making a distraction.

WTSP investigators asked both US Airways and the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) if the incident was true, and they both acknowledged that it was.

A current Federal Air Marshal who had to remain anonymous because he is prohibited from speaking to the media, said of the TSA, “They’re liars. They’re flat out liars.” He added that the TSA doesn’t want to alarm the public, concluding, “We’re waiting for the next 9/11 to happen, because it’s not a question of if. It’s a question of when.”

Obama: The Muslim Brotherhood President

The director of JihadWatch Robert Spencer wrote an excellent article describing the horror of the Muslim Brotherhood and Obama’s relationship with them.

“The Muslim Brotherhood President,” FrontPage Mag, October 10, 2013:

The State Department announced Wednesday that it was cutting hundreds of millions in military and other aid to Egypt, and make no mistake: this was not a government shutdown move. This was the President of the United States blackmailing a sovereign state to force it to restore the Muslim Brotherhood government he favors. With the Egyptian economy in crisis and Egypt strongly dependent on this aid, Obama has just effectively cast his vote for the Muslim Brotherhood’s return to power – and his vote outweighs that of millions of Egyptians.

This comes as the Brotherhood is becoming increasingly violent in Egypt, belying its “moderate” reputation. The New York Times reported Tuesday that “three brazen attacks across the country included a drive-by shooting near the Suez Canal that killed six soldiers, a car bomb that killed three police officers and wounded dozens near the Red Sea resorts area, and the first rocket-propelled grenade launched in the struggle, exploding near an elite enclave of the capital and damaging a satellite transmitter.”

Obama has said nothing about this. Nor has he said anything about the recent attempt by Muslim Brotherhood supporters to assassinate Bishop Makarios of Upper Egypt’s Minya governorate, where Brotherhood men have burned churches and terrorized Christians, scapegoating them for the toppling of the Muslim Brotherhood regime. Indeed, Christians have been scapegoated and brutalized all over Egypt at the hands of supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood.

…And AINA reported on the same day that “two Coptic Christians government employees were shot dead yesterday for refusing to pay Jizya, the Muslim poll tax on Christians. Emad Damian, 50, and his cousin Medhat Damian, 37, from the village of Sahel Selim in Assuit Province, were contacted two days before their murder by the leader of a Muslim gang, who was identified by Watany Coptic Newspaper as Ashraf Ahmed Mohammed Khalajah, a registered criminal from the village.”

The jizya is a tax that non-Muslims must pay as a sign of their subjugation to the Muslims, and it is mandated in the Qur’an: “Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.” (9:29)

Yet while warning the Burmese government to stop persecuting that nation’s Muslims, Obama has said little about the escalating persecution of Christians in Egypt – a persecution that is being carried out by people who want to see the Muslim Brotherhood in power there.

…Obama’s support for the Muslim Brotherhood goes back to the beginning of his presidency. Early in 2009, when the group was still outlawed in Egypt, he met with its leaders. He made sure to invite Brotherhood leaders to attend his notorious speech to the Islamic world in Cairo in June 4, 2009.

He even invited Ingrid Mattson, then-president of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), to offer a prayer at the National Cathedral on his first Inauguration Day – despite the fact that ISNA has admitted its ties to the Brotherhood. The previous summer, federal prosecutors rejected a request from ISNA to remove its unindicted co-conspirator status.

With Brotherhood operatives so warmly favored in the Obama Administration, it’s no surprise that he would want them in power in Egypt as well. And by cutting off aid, he’s strong-arming the Egyptians until they have no choice but to agree.

Poll: Obamacare rollout gets poor reviews

WASHINGTON (AP Oct 10) — The debut of the government’s health insurance marketplaces drew a huge audience — and underwhelming reviews.

Just 7 percent of Americans say the rollout of the health exchanges has gone extremely well or very well, according to an AP-GfK poll.

The reaction was somewhat better among supporters of the new health care law, but still middling: 19 percent said the rollout went extremely well or very well.

Among the uninsured — a key audience for the health exchanges — 42 percent said they didn’t know enough to judge how well the rollout had gone, suggesting an ongoing lack of awareness about the program in its early days.

Despite the bumpy rollout, plenty of Americans are giving the system a try.

Seven percent of Americans reported that somebody in their household has tried to sign up for insurance through the health care exchanges, according to the poll.

While that’s a small percentage, it could represent more than 20 million people.

Three-fourths of those who tried to sign up reported problems, though, and that’s reflected in the poor reviews.

Read the powerful op-ed from Israel debunking an ugly claim about Glenn Beck

TheBlaze.com, which receives 19 million unique visitors per month wrote an article about my recently published op-ed, “Beck a Nazi Sympathizer, Seriously?” It is a huge honor since Glenn Beck is the founder of TheBlaze, and he is a true hero to me.

“Read the powerful op-ed from Israel debunking an ugly claim about Glenn Beck: ‘We are with you, you are not alone,’ TheBlaze, Oct 10, 2013:

In an op-ed published this week, Gabriel Rosenberg, an author and the founder of WorldMediaMonitoring.com, debunked a troubling allegation that one of Glenn Beck’s harshest critics waged this summer — that the popular host is essentially a Nazi sympathizer.

After The Salt Lake Tribune published an op-ed accusing Beck of being a “sympathizer” as a result of some of the items in his “Independence Through History” exhibit over the summer, the outlet subsequently declined to retract the piece. As a result, Rosenberg felt compelled to speak out (the original Tribune article was entitled, “Glenn Beck’s Nazi Exhibit”).

Boldly dismantling this claim, Rosenberg presented a compelling case and urged readers to educate themselves and to “stand with” Beck.

“The scandal does not lie with the author of the op-ed, but with the newspaper’s opinion editor Vern Anderson,” Rosenberg wrote. “That article should never have been published, and since it doesn’t seem that the Tribune will retract or correct the lies, after this much time has elapsed, I would like to present you with the real Glenn Beck.”

One of the many examples provided by the writer was Beck’s “special message for Israel” that was delivered in Nov. 2012. In it, the radio and television host made it more than clear that he supports the Jewish state.

Watch that address, below:

Rosenberg provided many other examples — speeches, statements and personal acts that make it clear that Beck is certainly no Nazi sympathizer. In fact, the commentary called the host one of the most influential, powerful and brave supporters of both Israel and the Jewish state.

“Beck has made it abundantly clear that he stands with Israel and the Jewish people. Now I am urging you to stand with Glenn Beck,” he concluded.
