Every Jew a .22 [audio]

Wednesday, December 2nd, 2015

In the wake of the daily terror attacks facing the Jewish state, the laws of gun control are changing in Israel. Nonetheless, the majority of Jews living outside of Israel believe in stricter gun control and do not own weapons themselves.

After the unparalleled history of oppression and murder suffered by the Jewish people, wouldn’t it make sense that out of all people, Jews would see the importance of bearing arms?

In this episode we look at the gun issue through a Biblical prism and explain why bearing arms in these times is not merely a privilege, but a responsibility.

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.’”

Brussels Govt: ‘We’ve Averted A Belgian Charlie Hebdo’ 

Friday, January 16th, 2015

Government agents killed at least two suspects in what they say was a developing “Belgian Charlie Hebdo” situation late Thursday.

The suspects opened fire as police began their raid on an apartment above a bakery in the eastern city of Verviers, 70 miles from Brussels. No security personnel were injured.

The public prosecutor’s office has confirmed the deaths of the two suspects, and added there have been arrests of “several” more.

“We’ve averted a Belgian Charlie Hebdo,” an unidentified police officer told La Meuse, according to Fox News.

Magistrate Eric Van der Sypt told journalists at a briefing in Brussels that the terrorists were linked to the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) and were close to launching a major attack.

Counter terror raids are underway in the Brussels region at this time, as well as in Verviers, he said, and the terror alert level in the country has been raised to its second highest level.

The raids were part of the security establishment’s investigation into local jihadists who are returning to the country “battle-hardened” from Syria.

Another suspect is currently being detained in a separate part of the country on suspicion of selling arms that were used in last week’s terrorist siege in Paris.

Belgian media reported that suspect had turned himself in Tuesday in the southern city of Charleroi, saying he had been in contact with Amedy Coulibaly, one of the gunmen involved in last week’s Paris terror attacks.

It is not yet known whether the two are connected, nor whether those who were killed Thursday were directly tied to the Paris terror cells.

IDF on Manhunt for Arab Terrorists Trying to Gun Down Jewish Drivers

Thursday, November 27th, 2014

Police and the IDF are conducting a massive manhunt Thursday for one or more Palestinian Authority Arabs who tried to gun down Jewish drivers in Samaria Thursday evening.

No one was injured in the attempted murders, but bullet shells were found in the area of the Doar Junction in the Binyamin region.

Despite the use of live fire, rocks still remain a popular way to terrorize drivers in the hopes of causing a fatal accident, as happened in the past. One of the favorite rock-throwing spots continues to be the village of Azoon, on the road between Kfar Saba and the communities of Ginot-Karnei Shomron and Kedumim in Samaria. Several rocks damaged passing cars on Thursday, but no injuries were reported.

The IDF frequently beefs up patrols around Azoon but usually only after attacks.

In Hebron soldier stopped an Arab driver near the Jewish community in the city and found a sub-machine gun and ammunition. The man is being questioned by security officials.
