Egypt Shuts Down Last Jewish Synagogue

For the first time in 2,000 years, there will be no Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur services at the Eliyahu Hanavi Synagogue in Alexandria in 5773, reports Daniel Greenfield in “In The Point.”

This was the last active synagogue in Egypt. The Egyptian authorities’ excuse for the shut-down, effectively outlawing High Holiday services in the country, were “security” reasons.

Levana Zamir, head of the International Association of Egyptian Jews in Israel, said: “It seems this is really the end of Jewish life in Egypt. The authorities have found a way to take over the last Jewish bastion, since all the remaining synagogues are already archaeological and tourist sites. It is very sad.”

This is yet another example of the fact that Jewish life is becoming extinct in the Muslim world.

    And in response..chairman barack has ordered 3 missile cruisers be delivered to the muslim brotherhood to help them protect their waters against the "Zionist experiment." Any Jews that are not looking at all these events, and obama's support of them, are looking to relive Germany 1939.

  2. As the great Winston Churchill once said, "The lights are going out… we shall not see them lit again in our time".

  3. Whoops, make that Edward Grey, not Churchill.

    Curse this world, curse this time; curse this fate,
    that uncivilized Arabs have come to make me Muslim. Humans want to be humans but islam teaches humans to be as smart as monkeys. WOW!

    Soon islam will take over the world and all our science and technology will be by-passed and discarded and as a species humans will again live like it was in Saudi Arabia in the times of moremad.The arabs will be the rulers and the whole world will forever be mad.
    Everybody will be muslim and women will be perpetually thrashed and uneducated and black people will only be slaves. The population of the blacks will slowly come to an end because as more and more black people will be slaved and castrated. No free thought will be allowed and there will be a non-stop stunting of the human mind. All education and forward thought will come to a stop and soon all tech will be passed and humans will once again use animals for locomotion. Within 4 generations of only islam all history will be wiped out and most animals will be slaughtered to extinction. Only Arabic will be spoken and fear and brainless thoughts will be encouraged and wide-spread. This will continue for at least 5000 years. As medical science will fall apart and viruses will attack the muslims unchecked. Islam will die from small pox or something even more lethal. Only after islam is wiped out by a virus and by then all humans will be as smart as monkeys are today will another civilisation rise from the annihilation of our current human race. Humans are doomed as of today. islam will rise and savagery will be the order of the day. Only from the ashes of islam 20,000 years into the future will new-man again rise as man, that will take another 20,000 years and another language besides Arabic will evolve.
    Today’s modern and rational man is tomorrows mayan…..soon to be slaughtered by islam and Arabic.
    As the great Edward Greyonce said, "The lights are going out… we shall not see them lit again in our time".

    When Israel punches through the Aswan with a 2 KT tac nuc and 50 cubic miles of Nile moving at 50-60 mph sweep through Cairo, those that survive will be treading water for ALLAHBLAHBLAHBLAHBLAHBLAHBLAH out in the Med beyond the ten mile marker.

    I'm not an Israeli but if anyone should start this mass cull it should be Israel because when the evil mad man was alive and spewing at them they didn't knock him off and look what's happened. It's never too late to stamp out filthy evil. Never too late. We all, bar none will help the Israelis.. We have to..for our sakes and for the good of children and this lovely planet. It is said that blood always flows where Blood-cultees go…soon blood will flow where Blood-cultees have gone but it will be Blood-cultee blood that will flow. Non-Blood-cultee good blood will also flow in the fight back by evil but that is expected. We live in interesting times. Get ready boys and girls..our grand-children will thank us but first we have some sincere work to do even if it repulses us. Such is life. After dark comes light and only after Islam is smashed will come peace for our children's children. We have to make this happen. And the only way it’s not going to is if we leave any Blood-cultees alive. 2+2=4, so few Blood-cultees =few mosques , therefore more Blood-cultees= more mosques , so no Blood-cultees = no mosques.
    So in conclusion : no Blood-cultees= no evil Islam = peace on earth and living in peace with science and joy and laughter.
    Class over. for today. Don’t forget your homework boys and girls. Read up more on the evil cult of Blood Cult.

    Western science flies you to the moon. Islam flies you into buildings!
    The main theme of the koran is fury and hatred against NON-MUSLIMS like we and our children, expressed in the most sadistic language ever placed between the covers of a single book. Only people who have not lived next to islam think islam is fine. People all over the globe are actually constantly moving away from islam since the last 1400 years.islam is a sadistic cult that is alive today because of pure luck. If buddhists take up arms against something it means that it must really be evil. Afganistan was a buddhinst country till islam came and finished it. Afganistan’s fate under islam is exactly what will happen to India and Nepal and The UK and The USA and Europe. Slowly slowly. Islam will win and the planet will lose. Muslims show up with their sadistic, dirty and very creepy morals and then the whole society collapses.
    Until the last emir is hanged by the entrails of the last imam……there will be no peace on earth.

    South America will slowly rise against islam. islam as we speak is infiltrating the latinos….. The latinos are not brits… no stiff upper lip bull… islam has a sword but south americans have the machette. Even match. Since the birth of islam because of some dumb and cowardly arabs the horror that is islam has been making forward thinking men and women move away from it constantly. But soon the planet is going to come to an end for running away from islam. Television is the culprit. The horror that is islam cannot be openly discussed on television because it is too horrible to show on TV. But the aftermath of living next to invasive islam can be showed only when islam is resisted and thus islam comes out looking good. Pure evil looks good because the Politically-Correct brigade refuses to see the horrors of islam and most of the channels in TV are slowly but surely being bought over by the arabs who are the only creeps who benefit because of islam. Women and children have no voice in islam and the politically correct way is silence. No one has the guts today to call islam evil. Evil it is. Savages muslims are. Islam is sadistic. Some of the writing is poetically sadistic. The Dirtiest poetry if there ever was any written. The idiotic Koran would never ever win any award for literature. Gutter-Literature First Prize. Hands down.
    Like I said..the main theme of the dirty and sadistic koran is fury and hatred against non-Muslims like us and our children, expressed in the most sadistic language ever placed between the covers of a single book. Islam is the twisted and aenemy of humanity and human dignity.
    Islam is not the answer.
    Islam is the wrong answer.If the polygamy angle was removed from islam…islam would die faster.

    If the death penalty for leaving islam was removed from islam…..islam would die faster.

    islam is a sex and death cult cult…nothing else.

    Why doesn't the supreme court forcibly read the koran and take a judgement call on it?

    Evil amonst us…islam is evil amongst us.

    If murder is not allowed then islam should also not be allowed.
    I think islam might win.
    Finished!
    We are finished!
    And within 50 years and within 4 post only-islam generations of stupid regressive and vile islam the whole human population will be muslims and muslims and only muslims….All looking the same with dirty beards and bad hygiene and gutter-thoughts-programmed. Imagine this…Deadly! No women in sight…all over the planet all women will be under burkhas and veils…un-educated and brainwashed and trashed and THRASHED into submission and when there is nothing to compare the cult with…. doom! Women are doomed under islam. Finished! Humans had the atom bomb but were slaved by the miserable , melodic amd sadistic koran. The arabs were the smartest in the end. Who says airconditioning isn’t creative in the desert. Free cash is all islam had. Free cash is sordid islam’s oxygen. It will again be in the sword age for humans and there will be no way out……All that is not muslim will be razed and everybody will be moremad.
    Moremad was definitely more mad. More mad was actually the maddest. Fantastic….and to think if somebody made this movie they’d be on the hit-list. Creepy morals.
    There is only one solution….everybody’s thinking it…..somebody please press the button.
    islam won. Human women and children and Good thoughts Good words and Good deeds lost. Finally. It only took islam hardly anytime to annihilate mankind and make a monster called muslims.
    It's like saying, "It won't hurt me, it will hurt my daughter, and will surely hurt my daughter's daughter, but for me being politically correct is much more important. I understand the threat, but let's talk equality even if it is poison that I and my family have to drink".
    They're going to can all the pyramids one of these days and I never got to touch them…what to do?

  10. Honig Biene says:

    Arie, how is it a response? And in what ways are the tow things connected. The last remark is just cheap and demeans history.

  11. Arie Rosenrauch says:

    Really Honig? Demeans history? EVERY time the MB threatens Jews or attacks Coptic Christians, the chairman announces a new donation to their cause. 2 weeks ago, there were open attacks on the Christians by the MB…within days chairman barack authorized a sign off of an IMF 1.3billion dollar donation to Egypt (US taxpayers pay 25% of the IMF funding). As for 1939, no demeaning at all. As a son of Shoah survivors I heard the stories first hand on how Jews acted pre-camps. Much of that is being relived today with many Jews globally hiding themselves and voting for those (like obama) who openly surrunds himself with Jew haters and proponents of our genocide. Examples: soros, his financier, who call his nazi alliance the "best years" of his life; Powers, who has called for a "US led NATO invasion of Israel to eliminate the criminality of the Zionist entity, return the lands to the indigenous owners, and return the aggressors to where they came from": The list goes on including Wright, Farakhan, Sharpton, Jackson. Add that to the expanding countries in Europe looking to make Judaism illegal and TWO US cities that have now also tried the same. I am on point!

  12. Honig Biene says:

    As grand child of survivor my grand father taught me about Allom Tikkun. The fact you keep going on about '39 shows poor grasp of history. Try '33.

  13. Honig Biene says:

    As grand child of survivor my grand father taught me about Tikkun Olam. The fact you keep going on about '39 shows poor grasp of history. Try '33.

  14. Honig Biene says:

    As grand child of survivor my grand father taught me about Tikkun Olam. The fact you keep going on about '39 shows poor grasp of history. Try '33. And your causal link just random.

  15. Arie Rosenrauch says:

    All of the 1930s as hitler grew in power; the kapos that assisted him then just like the kapos obama surrounds himself with; promotion of Anti-Jew laws in all of Scandinavia, Denmark, Holland, and now – with the approval or pelosi – in San Francisco and San Bernardino; There is a difference between Tikkun Olam and facing reality. Perhaps you should re-introduce yourself to the philosophy of Tikkun olam. Repair the world? First you must eliminate the flaws and threats

  16. In the NT era, Alexandria was the center of Jewish diaspora world.

  17. Mel Pol says:

    World news reports have proven that Muslims are intolerable of those outside their religious communities. Many labeled as infidels are often beaten or put to death. Believers in cultural diversity should use whatever method necessary to end the Muslim cult. Its practice is dangerous and a threat to peace loving people.

  18. Maria D'Alessandro says:

    Grace Fields McIntyre . NOR MINE

  19. Elli Kelly says:

    The Muslim life should become extinct in a Jewish world Israel. lol x

  20. Elli Kelly says:

    Belly dancing the beautiful Islamic Art has been banned in the Muslim world. Now the Christian girls are keeping the beautiful art of Belly Dancing to continue, by performing it, to keep it alive.

  21. Somewere in Shamyim Philo is sitting next to Hillel and Rebbe Akiva…Crying.

  22. Jeffrey J Howland says:

    He is NOT my POTUS and does not represent ANY ideals that I have. He has disgraced the USA.

  23. Anonymous says:

    Arie Rosenrauch What are you saying about San Francisco and San Bernardino? I don't understand.

  24. Anya Khan says:

    Yes he is the Presidet. G*d willing, he will be moving out in January and not do much more damage than he already has.

  25. I would like to know your source. A quick Google search finds this story on BlackListedNews.com, but I found nothing on the major news sites. No surprise there.

  28. My father is from Egypt and there used to be a vibrant Jewish community there…almost everyone is gone. My father found success, love and happiness in North America but it saddens me that he had to leave his home, his friends and his life to move somewhere else and start again.

  29. Anaïs Nun says:

    Arie Rosenrauch utterlt incoherent & bizarre reasoning. Of you think the lesson of Shoa is more bigotry. It seems like you have a problem. And you could introduce your self with the concept of causation.

  30. Honig Biene says:

    Arie Rosenrauch You seem to be randomly conflating different things and be under the impression it is that is presenting a coherent argument. As for your knowledge of history, to your previous sin you add the defaming of Denmark. The only country to be singled out & honoured as Righteous Amongst Nations at Yad Vashem. I think you need to reflect a bit more and say a lot less. http://www1.yadvashem.org/yv/en/righteous/pdf/virtial_wall/denmark.pdf

  31. Bill Robinson says:

    I find nothing in the news or on Snopes to confirm this.

  32. Chaiya Eitan says:

    Isn't this against some kind of international law?

  33. Sev Onyshkevych says:

    I hate to say "I told you so" to all those who reveled in the "democracy in action" of the Arab Spring, and to the Occupier-in-Chief who helped bring about "Change" in the form of the Muslim Brotherhood and other Islamist terrorist groups throughout the region imposing their anti-Semitic, anti-gay, anti-woman, anti-capitalist, anti-alcohol, intolerant, polygamist, slave-holding, capital-punishing, no-separation-of-church-and-state, illiberal view of the world. But since these organizations are also anti-American and anti-Western-civilization, they must be exalted. Dumb move.

  34. Bill Markson says:

    International law? hahahaha.

  35. Michael Trager says:

    Agree. Only one democratic and free nation in the Middle East. Israel. Not to mention, the same one that has a thriving economy (with lack of the fortune of oil).

  36. Chaiya Eitan says:

    I know….ridiculous question…

  37. Bohdan Pechenyak says:

    Barely free and democratic and in terms of foreign affairs atrocious. As far as economy, without Israel #2, it wouldn't have lasted or gotten to this point. Rather than taking a side and vilifying the other, one should try to understand both sides as dispassionately as possible. But, of course, that's the last thing people do.

  38. Michael Trager says:

    Israel's accomplishments are *amazing*. Let's not forget, what would have happened if Israel had lost any of those (non-provoked) wars…. How about 1967, 1973? People tend to forget their history very very fast. Israel survived, up against tremendous odds. Funny, how people forget. Oh well, I guess, it's all about the Palestinians…

  39. I am confused … I thought the Egyptians brought about this regime change themselves? And isn't the occupier-in-chief working his ranch in Texas right now?
