Dozens of Haredi Rabbis Call on Israel to Kill Every Terrorist ‘As Soon As He Leaves the House’

Monday, May 16th, 2016

Several dozen rabbis, many of them Haredi and Hasidic, on Sunday attended an emergency conference at the study hall of the Bostoner Rebbe, Rabbi Meir Alter Horowitz, in the neighborhood of Har Nof in Jerusalem, Kippa reported. Dubbed “emergency conference for the security of Israel in the Holy Land,” the assembly ended with a uniform call against a national unity government with the Zionist Camp (Labor) or with any other politicians who declare openly that they want to hand over areas of historic Israel.

Besides the host, the Bostoner Rebbe, the conference included Haredi “celebrities” such as the Chief Rabbi of Bnei Brak, Rabbi Moshe Landau, the Chief Rabbi of Tsfat, Rabbi Shmuel Eliyahu, and the head of the Temple Institute, Rabbi Yisrael Ariel.

The statement the assembled rabbis issued after their conference said in no uncertain terms that there must be no negotiations over territory across the “green line,” nor any mention of the “two state solution.” The announcement suggested that “the only way to uproot the wave of terror by Arab murderers in the Holy Land would by through a firm stand of the Israeli government that there will never be a negotiation over parts of the Holy Land, by expressing regret for past withdrawals and regret for the ‘miserable declaration’ of two states for two peoples.”

The assembled Haredi rabbis also said that “the areas of Judea, Samaria and Jerusalem are all part of the Land of Israel and we must continue to build there in accordance with the needs of the population without interruption. The rabbis have ruled according to Halakha that maintaining the security forces’ deterrence is more important than any holy object.”

The Haredi rabbis also mentioned what they called “stupid” statements by senior officials in government and the military which, they said, dishonor the nation of Israel and the IDF soldiers—referring to Deputy Chief of Staff General Yair Golan who compared the behavior of some IDF soldiers to that of German Nazis in the 1930s.

The rabbis added that every Arab terrorist must be executed. “Every Arab terrorist who leaves his house with the intent to hurt Jews has lost his right to live and must be shot without needless calculations,” they stated. They noted that whomever refuses to follow their directions should not be placed in charge of the security of Israel, citing Deut. 20:8 — “What man is there that is fearful and fainthearted? let him go and return unto his house, lest his brethren’s heart faint as well as his heart.”

Emotions Run Deep as Body of Ezra Schwartz, z’l Arrives in US for Burial

Sunday, November 22nd, 2015

Emotions ran deep as the body of young Ezra Schwartz, z’l arrived home in Boston for burial on Sunday, Nov. 22, accompanied by many of the students with whom he had learned weeks earlier.

Dozens of young men bid farewell Saturday night to the 18-year-old yeshiva student who was brutally murdered in a terrorist attack by a Palestinian Authority Arab last Thursday.

Many yeshiva students from Beit Shemesh volunteered to travel the final journey with their fellow student’s body. They and numerous others gathered in a circle at Ben Gurion International Airport in Tel Aviv on Saturday night to sing the Israeli national anthem, HaTikvah. Schwartz was one of a total of five people who lost their lives to Arab terror on Thursday.

Yeshiva University Israel Alumni and Yeshiva University in Israel joined Yeshivat Ashreinu, Israel Friends and Alumni of Maimonides School and Klal Yisroel in mourning the student’s tragic death.

It was announced that a memorial service is scheduled for Sunday evening November 22 on the campus of Midrashiat Amaliah, Rehov Haim Heller 31, Givat Mordechai, Jerusalem. Recitation of Tehillim is set to begin at 6:30 pm. The funeral for the young yeshiva student, scheduled to begin at 7:00 pm Israel time, will be broadcast live on site.

On Saturday night, as farewells were said to the murdered American, people in Kiryat Gat raced for cover while others hunted for another Arab terrorist who stabbed four new victims, one a 13-year-old girl. Several hours later with air and ground support that included some 250 police officers, the stabber was caught just before midnight, with the blood-drenched knife still in his possession.

Barely 100 meters from the scene of the attack, the 16-year-old terrorist was hiding in a backyard on the same street where he stabbed his victims. He was given up to authorities by two of his friends, according to the Hebrew-language newspaper, Yediot Aharonot, and identified as an illegal worker from Hebron.

Ben Gurion U. Students’ Cancer Therapy Wins Boston Competition

Wednesday, September 30th, 2015

The student team from Ben-Gurion University of the Negev has won the Best Health and Medicine Project category in the prestigious 12th annual iGEM 2015 Giant Jamboree competition with their cutting-edge biological cancer therapy called “Boomerang.”

IGEM is considered one of the most important ventures in the global sphere of science. Nearly 4,600 students competed in this year’s event in Boston.

The BGU project Boomerang is based on advanced methods of genetic engineering and synthetic biology. It has many applications that rely on the special characteristics of cancer cells to identify and alter cells as well as treat the disease at the molecular level.

The name “Boomerang” mirrors the actions in which the synthetic system uses cancer cells’ own genetic alterations against them.

As a cancer therapy, Boomerang works as a modular system. It can cause disruption of genes essential for cancer survival or activate suicide genes so that the cancer or tumor kills itself. Boomerang can also produce color proteins for cancer cell detection so that the edges of a tumor are visible to ensure complete surgical removal.

In addition to winning the grand prize in the Best Health and Medicine Project in the “Overgraduate” category (graduate level), the BGU team was a first runner-up in the overall competition, the first Israeli team to reach this level in iGEM.

The BGU team also won the Best New Basic Part Award for developing and submitting the best new functional DNA sequence to this year’s competition.

ISIS Tweets Home Address of Pamela Geller

Sunday, June 14th, 2015

A tweet from a man in Britain believed to be a senior member of the Islamic State (ISIS) posted the home address of anti-radical Islam activist Pamela Geller, who is Jewish. The Jewish Press.com is not re-posting the information even though we have no ISIS readers, as far as we know.

She was targeted for beheading in a plot that was smashed two weeks ago when Boston policemen arrested two men who had planned to decapitate her but then decided to make policemen their first victims because they were “easier targets.”

The Twitter account “#GoForth,” from which the tweet was sent and which now has been suspended revealed Geller’s address and apartment number in New York City.

Geller rose to be U.S. Public Enemy No. 1 for the ISIS after she staged a contest in Texas in May for drawings of the Prophet Mohammed.

She may soon have company in the form of New Hampshire resident and ex-marine Jerry DeLemus, who plans another “draw Mohammed” event in August.

He said last week:

I’m not worried about taking a risk. It’s more important to defend our way of life in this country, our constitutional rights, for everybody.

DeLemus told Maine’s WMTW:

I guarantee if there weren’t Muslims actually in this country actively trying to kill people for drawing pictures of Mohammad, I’d never have an art contest to draw Muhammad.

I’m not forcing anyone to come. That’s Sharia law. I’m sure they’ll know with the news media coverage there’s a risk involved.

He declared that he won’t allow offensive drawing and added:

It’s a political statement that we’re America, we’re free. And we can do things that offend one another.

As a Christian, they do all kinds of ugly things about my faith. But I’ve never wanted to kill someone about it. So I’m hoping it comes out peaceful. But I just want the dialog to be had.

Plenty of security will be on hand, and Geller now walks around with personal bodyguards because of death threats.

One of the suspects in the plot to behead Geller was killed when he pulled out an 8-inch military knife as he approached policemen who were preparing to arrest him for questioning.

Two others were charged on Friday for the plot. David Wright was arrested shortly after his co-conspirator Usaamah Rahim was killed, and the third suspect is Nicholas Rovinski, who was arrested on Thursday. He also goes under the name Amriki aka Nuh al Andalusi.

“Beginning at a date unknown but no later than May 2015, Wright, Rovinski and Rahim conspired to commit attacks and kill persons inside the United States, which they believed would support ISIL’s objectives,” according to a Dept. of Justice statement.

Rovinski and Wright face a maximum prison sentence of 15 years for conspiring to support the Islamic State.

Boston ISIS Terrorist Intended to Behead Pamela Geller

Thursday, June 4th, 2015

The radical Islamic State (ISIS)-inspired terrorist who was gunned down by Boston police Wednesday originally intended to behead activist Pamela Geller but later changed his plans and decided to chop off policemen’s heads, CNN reported.

Police killed 26-year-old Usaamah Rahim when he refused to drop his 8-inch military knife, purchased through Amazon, when officers approached to arrest him for the murder plot.

Geller, who is Jewish, is in the forefront of the campaign against radical Islam and grabbed headlines last month when her American Freedom Defense staged a contest for drawing cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed in Texas. The event earned her plenty of harsh criticism for rabble rousing, and she walks around with security guards.

She told CNN Wednesday:

They targeted me for violating Sharia blasphemy laws. They mean to kill everyone who doesn’t do their bidding and abide by their law voluntarily. This is a showdown for American freedom. Will we stand against this savagery or bow down to them and silence ourselves?

Rahim and his alleged conspirator David Wright are said to have dropped their plans to make Geller their first target and decided approximately two hours before the clash with police:

 …Going to … go after them, those boys in blue. Cause … it’s the easiest target.

Wright was arraigned in a Boston court Wednesday and was charged with obstructing a federal investigation by destroying Rahim’s Smartphone that contained evidence of their plot.

Court documents also revealed that Rahim allegedly told Wright after purchasing knives:

I just got myself a nice little tool. You know it’s good for carving wood and … carving sculptures.”

A group of four or five Boston police officers approached Rahim to arrest him when he moved towards them with his drawn military knife and was shot and killed.

Boston Police Commissioner William Evans said that Rahim has been under surveillance and that “he was someone we were watching for quite some time.”

A video shows the shooting, but Rahim’s brother Ibrahim has a different version, which he posted on social media:

Boston Imam Abdullah Faaruuq also doubts that the video shows the whole picture. He said:

We can’t say what happened. We weren’t there. We do see a very vague video that is not clear as to what transpired. It wasn’t at a bus stop. He wasn’t shot in the back and there is not detail enough on the video to tell us exactly what happened.

The Council of American-Islamic Relations’ spokesman also joined the doubters and stated:

We have a number of questions. Why exactly was he being followed? What was the probable cause for this particular stop? Were there any video cameras or body cameras of the incident? How do you reconcile the two versions of the story, the family version being that he was on his normal commute to work at a bus stop?

The denial of the police account and the accusations that police simply gunned down Rahim in cold blood underlines the growing problem in the United States of radical Islam and is a carbon copy of the same mindset of the Islamic world in the Middle East, including the Palestinian Authority and some Israel Arab leaders.

No matter what, the guilty party is the victim.

That is why Rahim, the “victim,” wanted to behead Geller.

She has been active in the campaign against radical Islam since the 9/11 attacks and began her Atlas Shrugs blog, which re-published the cartoons from 2007 of Mohammed, showing him with a bomb in his turban and which set off Muslim riots throughout the Muslim world.

Critics have accused of Islamphobia, and she was banned from speaking at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference in 2019 after four years of having addressed the event. She said she was kept from speaking because she had accused officials of the organization of being “members of the Muslim Brotherhood and secret Islamist agents.”

US Used Military Transport Plane to Fly Kerry to Boston

Tuesday, June 2nd, 2015

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, who broke his leg in a cycling accident this week, flew home to Boston from Geneva in a U.S. Air Force C-17 transport plane designed to carry 100 soldiers.

The Secretary of State is one of the most important individuals in the American government. He is leading negotiations with Iran for an agreement on how to supervise its nuclear program without allowing it to gain access to a nuclear bomb.

He obviously needs rest and treatment for his broken leg, but was it necessary to order a special fight in a military transport plane? After all, a broken leg is not exactly a life-threatening injury.

The State Dept. told The Washington Post that the C-17 transport plane, which is the Air Forces’ primary aircraft for global transport of troops and equipment, was carrying “military medical personnel in keeping with standard practice.”

Kerry landed safely in Boston and is being treated at Massachusetts General Hospital.

If you think that we will get by without Kerry in the talks with Iran, making peace for Israel and the Palestinian Authority, and leading the anti-Islamic State (ISIS) initiative, forget it.

State Dept. spokeswoman Marie Hard told reports Monday:

The Secretary’s made a number of calls to his counterparts today, including to the French foreign minister and the Spanish foreign minister…and also to Foreign Minister Fabius, of course, expressing his regret that we won’t be at – he won’t be at the anti-ISIL meeting tomorrow. He will, though, be calling – or be remotely participating in the anti-ISIL meeting…..

He also has made a number of calls to White House and State Department officials, including speaking with the President.

The Secretary is committed to pursuing an aggressive recovery schedule….Secretary Kerry’s main focus for the month of June remains squarely on the Iran negotiations. I want to be very clear about this. His injury does not change that. He and the entire team are absolutely committed to the same timetable and are working toward June 30th as the deadline for these talks.
