Magical Shape Shifting Jews

Wednesday, January 14th, 2015

H/T TruthRevolt - Video and transcription:

Diaz-Balart: You talked, Dana, to some of these French Muslims who say this was all a conspiracy. What do they mean?

Kennedy: Well, I went out to what they call the suburbs of France which are not what Americans think of as the suburbs, really the housing projects they’re outside Paris and there are a couple of areas inside Paris where a lot of poor Muslims live. I talked to cross section of mainly French Algerian young men who said to me it was pretty much they felt the attacks were actually a conspiracy by the Jews to make Muslims look bad. One person told me that in fact they weren’t just regular Jews that were doing this, in fact they were a race of magical Jews, shape shifting Jews, master manipulators that could be everywhere at the same time.

Last Edition of Charlie Hebdo Magazine Selling for $600 on eBay

Tuesday, January 13th, 2015

The most recent issue of the French satirical magazine Charles Hebdo is being offered on eBay for up to $600 while the not-yet-released edition for this week is going for four-figure numbers.

The terrorist attack on the magazine’s offices has made the recent edition a collector’s item. Among the 12 people killed in the murders were Jewish cartoonist Georges Wolinski and Charles Hebdo editor Stephane Charbonnier.

Other Charles Hebdo memorabilia sold on eBay are T-shirts, coffee mugs, pens and stickers, all of them bearing the “Je Suis Charlie” motto.

The magazine usually prints 60,000 copies, but the magazine is printing 3 million copies for this week’s edition, which features a cartoon of the Prophet Mohammed weeping over the murders and saying “All is forgiven.”

The satirical publication frequently carries cartoons mocking Mohammed, and Charles Hebdo’s attorney Richard Malka said more caricatures of Mohammed will be featured in this week’s edition.

“We will not give in otherwise all this won’t have meant anything,” he told France Info radio. “Humor without self-deprecation isn’t humor. We mock ourselves, politicians, religions, it’s a state of mind you need to have.

“The Charlie state of mind is the right to blaspheme.

“We have never criticized a Jew because he’s a Jew, a Muslim because he’s a Muslim or a Christian because he’s a Christian. But you can say anything you like, the worst horrors – and we do – about Christianity, Judaism and Islam, because behind the nice slogans, that’s the reality of Charlie Hedbo.”

Heartwarming Show of Solidarity During French Victims’ Funerals

Tuesday, January 13th, 2015

By Yotam Rozenwald

Thousands of Israelis showed their solidarity and sympathy at the funerals of the four victims killed by a terrorist attack on the kosher supermarket Hyper Cacher in Paris.

The victims were buried on Tuesday, January 13 at noon in the Givat Shaul cemetery in Jerusalem. All the victims were Jewish; Yohan Cohen, Yoav Hattab, Phillipe Barham and Francois-Michel Saada.

 

Although the victims were French citizens, their families asked the Israeli authorities for permission to bury their bodies in Israel. Israel’s government agreed, and made the necessary arrangements.

The funerals were attended by many Israeli public figures, as well as key figures from the French Jewish community, numbered at 500,000 strong. Speeches were made by Israeli President Reuven Rivlin, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, head of opposition Isaac Herzog and French Minister of Ecology and Sustainable Development and Energy, Segolene Royal.

 

Prime Minister Netanyahu talked about his visit to Paris the previous day during his speech at the funerals. “Yesterday, I returned from Paris, where I participated in the anti-terror march alongside leaders from all over the world. I think that the majority of them understand, or at least starting to understand, that radical Islam is a real threat to world peace”.The Israeli prime minister also added that Islamic terror is not just a Jewish or Israeli problem but a problem for all humanity. “It is time all people of all cultures unite, and eject these elements among us.”

 

President Rivlin addressed French minister, Royal, saying: “European leaders must obligate themselves to act in an effective manner; they must obligate themselves and act with a firm hand, so that Jewish people in Europe can feel safe again, whether in Toulouse, Paris, Brussels or Burgos.”

French Minister, Royal commented that “I want to give my condolences on behalf of the French Republic, which shares your grief…the victims were murdered for being Jewish, which is outrageous.”
“Anti-Semitism has no place in France and that is the message carried by the millions of French people who marched on Sunday.” Royal, announced in her eulogy that the four victims will receive a posthumous French honor, “Ordre National de la Légion d’Honneur ” (Legion of Honor), which is the highest decorative honor bestowed in France.
