European Rabbi Says He Was Misquoted on Arming Jews with Guns

Saturday, January 17th, 2015

European Jewish Association (EJA) director Rabbi Menachem Margolin has “clarified” reports that he supports arming European Jews with guns and said he does not advocate widespread gun use.

It was the EJA that posted the original report, published here by The Jewish Press on Friday, that European Union countries should allow Jews to carry guns to protect  themselves against Islamic terrorists. and the “clarification” still  states that Jews will need to carry guns if governments cannot protect them.

The EJA Saturday night posted a new version and stated, “Rabbi Margolin never asked that every Jew carries a gun and does not advocate widespread gun use. Where licenses are issued, Rabbi Margolin calls for guns to be used responsibly and in self-defense.

“Referring to recent events, Rabbi Margolin has said that given the serious current climate, where Jews are afraid to go to the synagogue, to Jewish school or kosher supermarket, each Jewish institution – whether synagogue, school, kindergarten, or Jewish store… should be protected by the authorities across Europe.

” Should governments find they are unable to ensure the protection and security of institutions and Jewish citizens, in the long-term Rabbi Margolin called on Europe’s Interior Ministers to review current gun licensing laws ‘to allow designated people in the Jewish communities and institutions to own weapons for the essential protection of their communities, as well as receiving the necessary training to protect their members from potential terror attacks.’”

Muslims Burn French Flag on the Temple Mount [video]

Saturday, January 17th, 2015

Hundreds of Israeli and Palestinian Authority Muslims used the sacred Temple Mount Friday to burn the French flag in protest of the Charles Hebdo satirical magazine caricature this week of the Prophet Mohammed.

The cartoon depicts him crying over the murders of 12 people at the magazine’s office and shows a banner proclaiming, “All is forgiven.”

While Muslims in Jerusalem protested by burning the French flagon the Temple Mount, their brethren in Asia, Africa and Europe set fire to churches and raided shops run by Christians in Niger, attacked police n Algiers and Jordan, and burned the French flag in Pakistan.

It no longer is the “occupation” and the “Zionist enemy” that are the targets of angry Muslims.

The burning of the French flag on the holy site of the Temple Mount, as a response to the attack on Charles Hebdo journalists, has exposed, once again, that a large number of Israeli and Palestinian Authority Muslims act in the name of religion and not for a Palestinian Authority state.

The protesters on Friday screamed:

Burn it burn it! ….. in the cause of God. Allah the greatest. Prophet Mohammed is our leader forever.

God. Allah. The Prophet Mohammed.

Everything is in the name of God, but President Barack Obama and his counterpart in France don’t see it that way.

The French government last week continued to placate Muslims. President Françoise Holland declared, that Muslims were “the first victims of fanaticism, fundamentalism and intolerance.”

French Prime Minister Manuel Valls had a  bit more common sense and said that France is  in “a war against terrorism, against jihadism, against radical Islam, against everything that is aimed at breaking fraternity, freedom, solidarity.”

That is more than President Barack Obama can admit.

He was careful not use the “M” word when he denounced the attacks in France and said:

The fact that this was an attack on journalists, attack on our free press, also underscores the degree to which these terrorists fear freedom of speech and freedom of the press.

But the one thing that I’m very confident about is that the values that we share with the French people, a belief — a universal belief in the freedom of expression, is something that can’t be silenced because of the senseless violence of the few.

White House  Press Secretary Josh Earnest explained that radical Islam was not mentioned because “these terrorists are individuals who would like to cloak themselves in the veil of a particular religion.”

Obama’s position suggests that if a Muslim kills anyone in a terrorist attack, he is not acting as a Muslim.

And does the president think that any Muslim who burns the French flag in the name of Allah is not acting as a Muslim?

Never a Dull Moment in Paris with Multiple Terror Scares on Friday

Friday, January 16th, 2015

1) A Paris metro station was closed on Friday afternoon following a bomb threat. The bomb squad is presently on site.

2) Overnight, French security personnel arrested 10 people who were suspected members of a Jihadi terror network. They were arrested in simultaneous raids around the city.

3) An armed gunman took multiple hostages in a Colombes (northwest suburb of Paris) post office on Friday, using a Kalashnikov rifle and grenades.

The man eventually surrendered to police after a standoff that lasted hours.

The man has a criminal record for petty crimes, and when he surrendered he was said to have been “speaking incoherently”, according to an AFP report.

French police now believe it was a robbery, and not terror related.

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.”
