Anti-Semitism Rising, Memorial Desecrated in London

Sunday, August 23rd, 2015

Anti-Semitic vandalism is rising in Britain, most recently — this summer — in London.

The Jewish-funded Edward VII Drinking Fountain memorial in East London was desecrated last week with slabs of red meat and chicken.

Designed by sculptor William Silver Frith, the fountain was a tribute to the eldest son of Queen Victoria and was paid for by local Jewish residents in 1911.

Earlier in the month, a Nazi swastika was scrawled on a fence outside the Beis Chinuch Lebonos Girls’ School in the Hackney section of London.

The words “Yid Sh*t were carefully, neatly printed with the swastika.

It was the second time in a month the school had been targeted with anti-Semitic vandalism.

In Europe, the Yiddish word “Yid” has now become a racial slur, according to the European Jewish Press.

This month petition was created August 7 on the official website of the British Parliament, demanding the arrest of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu for “war crimes” against Palestinians during Israel’s counter terror operation last year against Hamas in Gaza.

The petition garnered more than 70,000 signatures so far this month. At the 100,000 mark the parliament allegedly is required to debate the matter.

However, the British government has stifled the issue, having responded last week to the initiative with a statement pointing out that under UK and international law, Netanyahu is “immune from criminal jurisdiction.”

Anti-Semitic Graffiti Strikes Second San Antonio Congregation

Tuesday, August 18th, 2015

Anti-Semitic graffiti has been found on the property of a second Jewish congregation in San Antonio.

Around 10 am Monday morning, a maintenance worker found two grills missing and the words “Jew Jew” spray-painted on to a tool shed around the back of the property of Congregation Agudas Achim.

The synagogue is located less than three miles away from Congregation Rodfei Sholom, located near Northwest Military Drive and Huebner Road. A driver’s side window was smashed on the car of a worshiper at the synagogue, and swastikas, “KKK” and vicious racial slurs were spray-painted on dozens of homes, cars, walls and other surfaces in the area around the synagogue.

Rabbi Arye Scheinberg told reporters, “Our citizens feel alert, but safe. They feel they are surrounded by love of this community.” Security in the area has been beefed up, he added, but did not go into details. Last week the FBI said they had identified “a person of interest” in connection with the attacks but no arrests have been made. On Monday, police said they are pursuing multiple suspects.

“I was already disgusted by what happened at Rodfei Sholom last week,” Rabbi Jeffrey Abraham told MySanAntonio.com . “This hits a little closer to home because it’s at my synagogue. I am just saddened that people would stoop to this level to try to break our community.”

Congregation Agudas Achim was founded in 1889 and serves some 550 families on the north side of San Antonio. It is the second-largest synagogue in the city, after Temple Beth El.

In a statement issued Monday, Texas Governor Greg Abbott called the vandalism an “offensive and disturbing attack on people of all faiths. Religious discrimination has no place in the State of Texas and I have faith that law enforcement spearheading this investigation will redouble their efforts to swiftly bring those responsible to justice.”

Anti-Jihadists Are ‘Dirty Jewish Zionist Thugs” Says US University Professor

Thursday, August 13th, 2015

A university professor in Philadelphia this week called anti-Jihad activists Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer “dirty Jewish Zionist thugs.”

Kaukab Siddique, an associate professor of English at Lincoln University, told the Philadelphia Inquirer in an interview on Monday, “I would say it again.”

Siddique slammed Geller for activities carried out by the group she heads with Spencer, the American Freedom Defense Initiative. The group has sponsored the recent controversial “Draw Mohammed” cartoon contests – one of which drew terrorist gunfire in Texas from an irate Muslim jihadist.

“She did the worst, other than killing us,” Siddique said. By violating what is “most sacred to us, we can talk about her, that she is Jewish and she is white and she’s a supremacist and she is doing this to us,’ he said.

Siddique has also publicly expressed doubt about the truth of the Holocaust, referring in speeches to the work of Holocaust denier David Irving who has said there is no evidence that Jews were murdered in gas chambers.

“I have read things from both sides and therefore I think that for any study of the Holocaust, we need to know what the critics say,” Siddique said. “Were there ovens?. . . If you study the pictures of Auschwitz, there are no ovens there.”

Spencer, who also heads “Jihad Watch,” responded in an email commentary Wednesday, “Siddique calls our defense of free speech ‘cultural genocide’ when in fact, Shari’a (Islamic law) is cultural genocide. Islamic history is built upon cultural annihilations, jihad wars and enslavements.”

In response to Siddique’s odd question about the gas chambers during the Holocaust, Spencer charges, “This poisonous Holocaust denier is teaching our children. How did we get here? The silence of reasoned, the rational. The silence of everyone who stood silent when they came after us, fearing they’d be labeled ‘Islamophobes’ and ‘racists’ by Jew-haters and radicals…

“Worst of all, back in May, when ISIS first issued its fatwa (edict) calling for me to be murdered, Siddique wrote on Facebook:

“Very cleverly, the corporate media are trying to present the Texas situation as ISIS vs. Geller. The Prophet Muhammmad [sic], pbuh, (ed: “peace be upon him”) is the , [sic] leader of the ENTIRE UMMAH, not just of ISIS. Two of ISIS gave their lives for the honor of the Prophet, pbuh. We can’t do that, but the law of this land gives us the right to speak out. ISNA, ICNA and CAIR think you can simply ignore blasphemy.  Millions embraced Islam because of Malcolm. (ed: Malcolm X) Imagine what America’s oppressed people think of us when we don’t speak even when our greatest sanctity is violated? Muslims, we are waiting for Allah’s wrath to descend on us.”

Siddique did not condemn ISIS, Spencer pointed out. “He says that ISIS is part of the umma, in arguing that the entire umma should be trying to kill me, not just ISIS. Siddique is, like ISIS, trying to enforce Shari’a blasphemy laws by force, trying to intimidate the West into silence in the face of the jihad threat.”

Other past Facebook postings have included such gems as: “Know the Jews and you’ll know your enemy” and references to renowned Harvard Law School Professor Alan Dershowitz as “that Zionist Jewish dog Derschowitz (sic).”

In his interview with the Philadelphia Inquirer, Siddique also slammed the U.S. military, saying it had “fallen below Hitler” in treatment of prisoners at Guantanamo Bay and in Iraq.

But in the classroom Siddique claimed, “My policy with students is to help them to think, not tell them what to think.”

The professor, age 72 and a native of Pakistan, teaches at a mosque and community center in Baltimore, where he lives with his wife, outside of the university. He also publishes an Islamic magazine.

Historic French Synagogue Burns Down in Maizières-lès-Vic

Tuesday, August 11th, 2015

A quaint little stucco synagogue in the small French town of Maizières-lès-Vic burned to the ground last week. Jews have lived in the remote area for nearly a thousand years.

It is not clear the flames started, since there were no electrical wires in the building, which had not been used as a synagogue in decades.

In fact, the building was being used by a local poultry farmer, according to the French news website republicain-lorrain.fr .

The structure was utterly consumed by the flames, said police, who have launched an investigation into the fire.

Arson is not being ruled out. “The synagogue had no electrical feed and it didn’t burn itself down,” Mayor Alain Guise was quoted as saying.

The central French union of Jewish students, UEJF, also published a statement condemning the anonymous arsonist, if he or she exists.

“UEJF deplores the destruction of a synagogue that, even though it no longer welcomes worshipers, was a symbol of Jewish presence of almost a thousand years,” the group said.

Maccabi Games in Germany Sparked Anti-Semitic Response

Tuesday, August 4th, 2015

The director for international relations at The Simon Wiesenthatl Center on Monday called on German Justice Minister Heiko Maas to condemn “the Jew-baiting of Maccabi athletes” at the Maccabi Games in Berlin.

In a letter to the minister, Dr. Shimon Samuels praised Maas for “welcoming the Maccabi Games to Berlin as a gift that Germany, after the Holocaust did not deserve.”

But, he pointed out, “apparently not everyone shared those sentiments” expressed by President Joachim Gauck, who had said he was “very moved” that the Games had chosen Berlin.

The athletes had encountered a number of very unpleasant experiences during their time in Germany, some of which are not at all unfamiliar to older Jews who have grown up in the Diaspora.

According to Samuels, German Muslims engaged in “anti-Semitic taunting” of the athletes at the Hotel Estrel which hosted several of the teams. In addition, there were a number of neo-Nazi threats made against the athletes on the Internet. Leftist German journalist Silke Burmester also made some rather nasty remarks on the Twitter social networking site.

“What are these Jewish sorts festivals?” she asked. “Have the Jews had their own Olympic games since ‘36?” In a separate tweet, she posted, “The Jewish sport has again arrived in Berlin. What should that be: swastika-throw?”

Samuels wrote to the minister that the games had not reached their goal, noting that the first Maccabi Games held in Prague came as a response to the exclusion of Jewish athletes from national teams.

“Maccabi’s return to Berlin, to the very stadium built for Adolf Hitler, was to have been a vindication of the united democratic Federal German Republic.

“Instead, the Jewish contestants had to be warned not to wear Stars of David or kippot for fear of violence,” he wrote.

Samuels went on to urge Maas to “vigorously condemn this Jew-baiting and take all legal measures available to apprehend those who would return us to 1936. This anti-Semitism targets Jews directly on German soil. It cannot be argued away as ‘anti-Zionism’ or ‘anti-Israelism.’

“The ironic context of Jewish sports reincarnated in Berlin that reawaken dormant phantoms is as unacceptable for Jews as for Germans.”

Al Asqa Mosque Preacher: Jews Train Doctors to Spread Diseases

Monday, August 3rd, 2015

To paraphrase another hate-filled radical Muslim preacher, Israel’s masochistic side teaches Islamists to spread the disease of hatred.

Sheikh Khaled Al-Mughrabi teaches Islam twice a week in the Al-Aqsa Mosque on the Temple Mount, where Israel has ignored, at least publicly, the increasing takeover by supporters of radical Islamic ideology.

His most recently class taught Muslims that Jews own 95% of the pharmaceutical industry and train doctors to create new diseases so they can spread illness and make more money.

Al-Mughrabi, or his script writer, must be given credit for a creative and healthy – make that unhealthy – imagination.

Palestinian Media Watch translated and published al-Mughrabi’s rant that was telecast on the Al-Msjed Al Aqsa channel last Friday:

Many diseases were created in labs – viruses created by doctors who were bought, trained and taught by the Rothschild family, the Freemasons, the Zionists, or the Jews to create and spread disease so they will be able to sell medicine for it.

According to what is told about the Rothschild family, they own more than half of the world’s wealth… There are approximately 950,000 billion dollars in the world. Out of this amount, 500,000 billion dollars belong to the Rothschild family. The Rothschild family owns the World Bank.

They own about 95% of the world’s pharmaceutical industry. Why do I mention the pharmaceutical industry? Many diseases were created in labs…to create and spread disease so they will be able to sell medicine for it. More than 95% of the pharmaceutical industry and the pharmaceutical trade are owned by the Children of Israel.”

Israeli police finally have had enough of al-Mughrabi and arrested him on Sunday for disseminating hate, according to the Palestinian Authority’s Quds Press, which reported that he” gives religious lessons to children at the mosque.”

Violent Bulgarian Soccer Fans Chase Israeli Team off the Field [video]

Monday, August 3rd, 2015

A violent group of Bulgaria soccer fans interrupted what was supposed to be a “friendly” game between Ashdod and the CSFA Sofia team Monday and chased the Israeli players off the field.

Ashdod was leading 1-0 when the game was canceled because of the outburst, which followed a red card against an Ashdod player for a heavy tackle.

The “bleacherreport” website described the scene as “incredible,” with the Ashdod players, in blue and white uniforms, scrambling for an empty portion of the stands to escape the anger of the mob. At least one glass bottle hit an Israeli player during the chase.
