Danish Buses Burned in Anti-Israel Attack

Saturday, May 9th, 2015

Four buses in Copenhagen were found on fire on Friday morning, and a fifth bus was covered with anti-Israel graffiti, according to a BBC report.

Last week the city’s transit authority ordered ads calling for the boycott of Israel removed from its buses, angering the anti-Semites.

The ads were deemed “too offensive” by the transit authority..

A few months ago, an Arab terrorist killed two people in a Copenhagen cafe and outside a local synagogue.

1,000 Danes Form ‘Ring of Peace’ Around Copenhagen Synagogue on Sabbath

Sunday, March 15th, 2015

A ring of peace encircled Jewish worshipers at a synagogue on the Sabbath this weekend for the second time in as many months.

On Saturday February 21, some 1,300 Muslims in Norway encircled the sole functioning synagogue in Oslo as Jews prayed within, showing their solidarity and protesting terrorist violence.

More than 1,000 Muslim and Christian Danes clasped hands to form a human chain around the Copenhagen Great Synagogue. It was the site where 37-year-old Dan Uzan, a volunteer security guard was murdered by a radical Islamic terrorist Feb. 14.

Organizer Niddal el-Jabr, a Muslim Copenhagen resident, told The Local newspaper on March 14, “We want to send a clear signal that we want a peaceful society in Denmark…

“Jews should be able to have their religion in peace,” he said.

Uzan’s father, Sergeot Uzan, told DR that he saw the move as an expression of “hope for humanity and democracy.”

It wasn’t the first.

On February 27, some 300 people held a peace vigil at the Copenhagen City Hall Square as well, organized by a separate Danish Muslim group.

Danish Muslims – who number some 200,000 – now comprise three percent of Denmark’s 5.4 million residents, according to the On Islam media outlet, and Islam is the country’s second largest faith group after the Lutheran Protestant Church.

Copenhagen Terrorist Pledged Allegiance to Islamic State

Tuesday, February 17th, 2015

The terrorist who killed two people in two consecutive attacks in Copenhagen Saturday and in the pre-dawn hours Sunday pledged allegiance to the Islamic State (ISIS), IBN-CNN reported.

Omar Abdel el-Hussein had posted on his Facebook page, “I pledge allegiance to Abu Bakr [ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi] in full obedience in the good and bad things. And I won’t dispute with him unless it is an outrageous disbelief.”

El-Hussein was armed with two guns when police killed him in a shoot-out after he fled the scene where he gunned down a Jewish volunteer guard at a synagogue and wounded two nearby policemen.

El-Hussein killed a Danish filmmaker in the attack on a Copenhagen café where he wanted to murder his real target, cartoonist Lars Vilks, who drew the Prophet Mohammed as a dog in 2007. Bodyguards escort Vilks wherever he goes and hustled him into the kitchen of the café when el-Hussein opened fire.

The question now remains whether two men arrested on Monday as suspected accomplices also pledged allegiance to ISIS. They have been charged with providing and disposing of el-Hussein’s murder weapon and with helping to hide him.

The Jewish Press reported here Monday that the ISIS has spawned World War III. Leftist media do not want to define it that way, and analysts are doing their best to assume Muslim terrorists are innocent of links to ISIS until proven guilty.

Foreign Policy, a widely respected and followed magazine and news website in the United States, wrote on Monday regarding el-Hussein and the ISIS:

 We still don’t know,” Rep. Adam Schiff, top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, said Sunday. He said the U.S. intelligence is working with Danish authorities in the investigation.

Was there an affiliation with al Qaeda or ISIS? Was this self-radicalization? Was this a copycat of what happened in Paris?” Schiff (D-Calif.) said on This Week With George Stephanopoulos. “It’s still too early to tell.”

Now it is not.

 

Muslim Gang Removes ‘Un-Islamic’ Flowers from Copenhagen Vigil [video]

Tuesday, February 17th, 2015

Thousands of Danes gathered Monday night for what has become a routine event in Europe – a self-righteous post-terror vigil that is more like a confession to the priest on Sunday before going back to six days of sinning, only to be followed be another confession.

A group of angry Muslims and the protesters themselves offered two pieces of proof at the rally to prove that their tears, songs, candles and flowers are am expression that satisfies their conscience that is blind to the root cause of terror – a bleeding-heart band permissive society that on principle prefers to allow free and open immigration regardless of the suicidal results.

The first piece of evidence was a Muslim gang’s kicking away a bunch of flowers that Danish immigrants, probably not from the radical Islam movement, laid at the spot where police killed terrorist Omar Abdel Hamid El-Hussein. It turns out he is full-fledged Danish native who was born in Denmark and is believed to be the son of a couple, two of the millions of “refugees” created by UNRWA to use as tool to eventually flood Israel with enough Arabs to eliminate Israel as a Jewish state.

The London Guardian reported that he “was always quick to debate the Palestinian issue.”

The dangerous Western custom of playing flowers at a vigil was too much for the Muslim group to bear since they were “un-Islamic,” The gang figured it was honoring Islam by kicking away the “desecration.”

The other piece of proof was provided by tens of thousands of Danes at the vigil who sang John Lennon’s “Imagination,” whose words sound like such a simply solution to peace and love forever.

Imagine there’s no heaven/It’s easy if you try

No hell below us /Above us only sky Imagine all the people living for today

Imagine there’s no countries /It isn’t hard to do Nothing to kill or die for /And no religion too Imagine all the people living life in peace

You may say that I’m a dreamer,/but I’m not the only one I hope some day you’ll join us /And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions/I wonder if you can No need for greed or hunger/A brotherhood of man Imagine all the people sharing all the world

That is the great liberal ideal in much of Europe and which is eating away at the United States. There is no heaven, there is no hell and more than all, there is no religion.

Lennon sang that you just have to imagine there are no possessions and, as John Kerry would say, “Poof,” it happens. By the way, Lennon’s net worth when he died was estimated at $800 million.

So the Danes expressed their opposition to violence by imagining that if you sing loudly enough, violence will disappear.

More important to the Danes, as speakers said at the vigil, is to maintain its ideal of an open society, and they had to prove it by showing solidarity with none other than the Muslim minority. It will be interesting to see in a few years if the Muslims will hold a rally to show solidarity with what will be the non-Muslim minority.

Leave it to the Jews in Diaspora to act like good Christians and turn the other cheek.

Dan Rosenberg Asmussen, chairman of the Danish Jewish Community, told a press conference:

We fight together with them (Muslims) for religious rights. We are moderates. We fight together against extremism and radicalism.

The Danes showed their solidarity by placing flowers where the terrorist was killed. If they cannot understand the reaction of kicking away the flowers, and it is certain it cannot and will not until it is way too late, it will be them and not Jews and not the cartoonists of Mohammed who will be on the receiving end of bullets.

Copenhagen Terrorist Fooled Police by Acting Drunk

Monday, February 16th, 2015

The Muslim terrorist who killed Jewish guard Dan Uzan outside a Copenhagen synagogue late Saturday night was able to approach and kill him by acting drunk to fool two nearby policemen into thinking that he was not a terrorist.

The policemen apparently did not understand that good Muslims don’t drink, even if they do murder.

The Copenhagen Post wrote that the Danish newspaper Politiken reported that the attacker, Omar Abdel Hamid El-Hussein, “stumbled and weaved towards the synagogue, enabling him to get close to Dan Uzan, the man standing guard at the synagogue, and two policemen.”

El-Hussein, as The Jewish reported here, was on Denmark’s terror watch list and had a criminal record that included gang-related activities as well as offenses with violence and weapons.

El-Hussein possessed two other guns when police killed him after a massive manhunt. He is another example of a terrorist who does not fit the illusion of bleeding heart leftists who want to believe that poor education and oppression drive Muslims to radical Islam.

El-Hussein, a Danish national, was a “very talented and gifted student who did well professionally,” adult learning school director Peter Zinkernagel, told the Copenhagen Post.

However, he was expelled in 2013 because he stabbed someone, indicating that he also had a talent for violence.

El-Hussein was sentenced to two years in prison for aggravated assault, but – guess what? – he was released last month because he had completed a “long part” of his sentence.

Police have not finished investigating El-Hussein’s attacks on a Copenhagen café and the synagogue.

They have arrested two men on having provided him with the murder weapon, and then getting rid of it and helping to hide the murderer.

Jens Madsen, the head of Denmark’s security service, told the BBC that el-Hussein may have  “inspired by militant Islamist propaganda issued by IS [Islamic State] and other terror organizations.”

 

 

 

 

Suspected Accomplices of Copenhagen Killer Arrested

Monday, February 16th, 2015

Danish police report they arrested two men believed to have helped the terrorist who attacked a Copenhagen cafe and a synagogue with gunfire on Saturday, Feb. 14.

The suspected terrorist was killed in a gun battle with a Danish SWAT team on Sunday. The suspect has been identified as Omar Abdel Hamid el-Hussein, age 22, born and raised in Denmark, The Telegraph reported.

Hussein opened fire on a cafe while a seminar on free speech was taking place on Saturday. One man was killed and several police officers were wounded. Inside the Krudttoenden cafe was Swedish cartoonist Lars Vilks, best known for his 2007 Mohammad-headed dog drawings. Vilks’s drawings had incited cultural warfare, with Islamists threatening repeatedly to kill him, and free speech advocates insisting that the message may be unpleasant but it should be protected speech.

Agnieszka Kolek, a Polish artist and free-speech activist who was present inside the cafe during the attack told a Wall Street Journal reporter that although those inside the cafe could not see outside, they could hear him yelling. Kolek said, “we heard him shout ‘Allahu akbar.’”

The terrorist escaped from the scene of the cafe shooting, and later in the day is believed to have been the same one who (non-randomly) opened fire outside a Copenhagen synagogue, inside of which a bat mitzvah was taking place. Dan Uzen, a 37-year-old Jewish man who was volunteering as a security guard outside of the shul, was shot in the head and died. Two officers were also wounded in this terrorist attack.

The arrested suspects will have a custody hearing on Monday, Feb. 16.

The fact that there were accomplices makes the whole “lone wolf” theory – the one that is so often trotted out in the immediate aftermath of most terrorist attacks – look rabid.

EU Says ‘Europe Will Not Be Intimidated’ by Terror

Sunday, February 15th, 2015

The European Union vowed, “Europe will not be intimidated” in the wake of another round of Paris-style terror attacks over the weekend striking the Danish capital of Copenhagen.

“The European Commission and the High Representative (Federica Mogherini) deplore the attacks in Copenhagen costing the life of at least two citizens and injuring several others,” said the EU delegation to Israel in a statement sent to media by email late Sunday.

“Even one life is too many. Our thoughts are with the victims and their families. Europe stands united with Denmark in upholding freedom of speech and freedom of expression,” the statement continued.

“We stand against anti-Semitism and all forms of discrimination. Europe will not be intimidated.”

But while Europe issues statements about not being intimidated by anti-Semitism, Jews are dying for the cause.

Dan Uzan, 37, donated his life to stop the terrorist’s bullets with his own body, thus preventing the attack from becoming a massacre. Uzan was guarding a Bat Mitzvah being held at a Copenhagen synagogue at the time of the attack.

Hours earlier, 55-year-old documentary film-maker Finn Noergaard died from wounds sustained after absorbing gunshots fired in the first attack; it appears, however, that the gunman’s target may have been Lars Vilk, the Danish cartoonist known for his satiric caricatures of the founder of Islam, the prophet Muhammad, which Muslims have found offensive.
