Pres. Rivlin Warns Support Growing for ISIS Among Israeli Arab Teens

Tuesday, January 19th, 2016

President Reuven Rivlin warned Monday evening that Israeli Arab teens are growing more enamored with becoming Da’esh operatives for the ISIS terror organization.

“The Islamic State is already here – that is no longer a secret,” Rivlin told participants at the ninth annual international conference of the Institute for National Security Studies (INSS).

“I am not speaking about territories bordering the State of Israel – but within Israel itself.”

Rivlin said that according to figures gleaned from “research studies, arrests, testimonies and covert analyses,” there is increasing support for Da’esh among Israeli Arabs.

A number have already been arrested during the past year for attempting to join the terror group. Some were recruited via the Internet, where Da’esh makes a special effort to target new members with flashy videos and webzines in various languages, including Hebrew.

A resident of the northern Negev Bedouin town of Hura was sentenced to three years in prison yesterday (Jan. 18) after admitting to having joined ISIS. He planned to travel to Syria with other family members.

This month the Be’er Sheva District Court is scheduled to hear five indictments against Bedouins who joined Da’esh. Several worked as educators in Hura, and in the Bedouin city of Rahat.

Earlier this month the terrorist cell leader Muhammad Abu Al Kian was sentenced to four years in jail. One of his early followers, a medical resident from Ashkelon, joined ISIS in Syria and was killed.

Much of the sympathy for Da’esh is seen among Muslim Arabs, said Rivlin, but support for Islamist terrorism is growing in secular circles as well.

“We are today seeing the influence of extremist ideas even in areas and groups identifying as secular,” he noted. “We have seen the waving of the black flag of the Islamic State in various villages and at political rallies, some which have included the participation of members of Knesset.”

Rivlin emphasized that “the State of Israel certainly does not regard the entire Arab sector as an enemy, nor as a group entirely tainted with extremism and Islamic fundamentalism.”

He did, however, underscore the need for Arab leaders to step up and take control of the situation – or own up to their part in it.

“I do not for a moment absolve the Arab leadership of responsibility,” he said. “The voices that blame the ‘occupation’ as the source of all ills while displaying sympathy and understanding for attacks on innocents represent a serious problem.”

Rivlin said it is in the best interest of the state to offer Israel’s Arabs a better future than that promised by groups such as Da’esh.

“If children are growing up without a dream, without hope or without aspirations, with the feeling that their blood and their lives are of a lesser value in the State of Israel, then we must think of how to offer them a dream, hope and faith.”

Jerry Lewis Praises Trump and Rejects Obama for not Wiping Out ISIS [video]

Wednesday, December 30th, 2015

Jerry Lewis, one of the icons of Jewish comedians who drew millions to TV screens  in the 1950s , said in an interview that Donald Trump is “great” while Obama “never was prepared” to deal with the Islamic State (ISIS).

Speaking in an interview with Raymond Arroyo on “World Over,” Lewis sounded light years away from the days when he was a Democrat who supported John Kennedy and who raised millions of dollars for charity through TV telethons.

Lewis put a red line on being liberal when it comes to accepting Syrian refugees, which President Barack Obama has made into a platform while Trump doesn’t want them in the country.

Lewis is with Trump all the way on the refugee issue and said:

Refugees should stay where the hell they are. Hey, no one has worked harder for the human condition than I have, but they’re not part of the human condition. If 11 guys in the group of 10,000 are ISIS—how can I take that chance?

He decline to “knock” President Obama and suggested that the President simply was “never prepared” for ISIS, but that his uncertainty shows he is not a leader. “We’re not stopping them [ISIS], We are just reporting what they are doing. That is ridiculous,” Lewis added.

Trump is certain. Like Lewis in his hey-day, he also is an entertainer, and that scores well for Lewis, who said of Trump:

I think he’s great. He’s a showman and we’ve never had a showman in the president’s chair.

Arroyo reminded Lewis that Ronald Reagan also was a showman, but Lewis insisted, “Well, that’s different. You can’t make do a comparison on Ronald Reagan because I can do three hours on him with just praise, he was so good.”

There is bigger difference between Reagan and Trump The former President entered the White House after having been in politics as governor of California, or as wacky comedian Tom Lehrer once sang. “We finally have a President who can do a song and dance.”

ISIS Fake $100 American Bills Found in Northern Israel

Tuesday, December 29th, 2015

Islamic State (ISIS) leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi has replaced one of America’s founding fathers, Benjamin Franklin, on the $100 bill.

On the other side of the bill appears an image of a terrorist stabbed to death by the Independence Hall in Philadelphia. The Arabic inscription the bill reads:

This is the end of dirty money. Return to your God, the best sinners are the ones who repent.

The fake bills may amuse Israelis, but the police don’t think it is funny and are investigating the source after they were found in the in the Upper Galilee Tuesday.

Nearly two dozen Israeli Arabs have joined, have tried to join the terrorist army or have set up ISIS-linked cells in Israel.

The ISIS has its own currency in areas it controls in Iraq and Syria but prefers gold coins.

 

 

 

Rouhani: Muslims Must Improve Image’ but not Forget ‘Zionist Crimes’

Sunday, December 27th, 2015

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said on Sunday that Muslims must improve the image of Islam in light of the evil of the Islamic State (ISIS) that has stained the religion as violent, according to foreign news agencies.

The report on Reuters omitted what was headlined in the Iranian regime-controlled Mehr News Agency, which headlined:

Ignoring Zionist crimes in Islamic world implausible – Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani slammed disappearance of addressing and broadcasting violence and crimes of Zionist regime in the Islamic world.

Rouhani was speaking at an international “unity” conference, which he said he hopes will help unify Muslims.

He called on Muslims “to follow a fair, moderate tone of discourse which is far from any kind of extremism, which he said results in violence.”

Iran is fearful of the Islamic State (ISIS), which has the same objective of the Tehran regime by wanting to create a Caliphate in the entire Middle East, for starters, before conquering the rest of the world.

The real difference between Iran and the ISIS is who calls the shots, or in their case, who swings the knife or tightens the noose.

Rouhani implied the rest of the world should have listened to him two years ago when Iran proposed the “World Against Violence and Extremism” to the United Nations. “Although seemingly passed unanimously by Muslim and non-Muslim countries, no measure of good faith was taken in practice,” he said.

Ignoring the “Zionist crimes,” which means the existence of Israel, the Iranian president referred to Islamic civil war and added:

If the world wants peace, all have to work together against extremism, violence and terrorism.

Why are we so silent in the face of all the killing and bloodshed? Do we help those who are the main cause of crimes? Is it not a disgrace to the Islamic world that innocent Muslims with their small children, with women, travel during the harsh winter, inside the river or sea with boats to seek refuge in non-Islamic countries?

We have to eliminate the negative interpretation of Islam in the virtual and real world; the great injustice is not only upon Muslims and the people of Libya, Syria, Iraq and Yemen; it is also the greatest injustice in the face of Islam.

His thesis tried to distance Islam in Iran from ISIS. Rouhani asked, “Did we ever think that, instead of enemies, an albeit small group from within the Islamic world using the language of Islam, would present it as the religion of killing, violence, whips, extortion and injustice?”

Reuters did not ask if “the religion of killing, violence, whips, extortion and injustice” also exists in Iran but took care to call Rouhani “a relative moderate” who supports Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, who also is trying to defeat the ISIS.

Assad also continues to use chemical weapons and raid civilian population centers with barrel bombs.

“Rouhani the moderate” as secretary of Supreme National Security Council in 1999, stated in a pro-government rally during student protests, “At dusk yesterday we received a decisive revolutionary order to crush mercilessly and monumentally any move of these opportunist elements wherever it may occur. From today our people shall witness how in the arena our law enforcement force . . . shall deal with these opportunists and riotous elements, if they simply dare to show their faces.”

Since taking office as president, more than 600 people have been executed, usually by hanging, which for Rouhani may be a more moderate type of Islam than the ISIS practice of beheading.

New ISIS Audio Threatens Israel, Jews and the West

Saturday, December 26th, 2015

Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, if he still is alive, seems to be desperate.

After having directly threatened President Barack Obama, Washington, several Americana and European cities, he now has warned that his ISIS (Islamic State) terrorist army is “getting closer every day” to strike Israel.

The audio posted as an “alternative Christmas message” on Saturday, but the authenticity of the voice of al-Baghdadi has not been confirmed.

If the ISIS were to strike Israel, God forbid, it might be its last breath. Israel, on whom the United States and the West depend for intelligence, could be expected to zero in on al-Baghdadi, unless he already is dead, or his replacement. He reportedly was seriously wounded in an Iraqi air raid in October and has been moving around to avoid being targeted.

The latest threats could be a posture to cover up severe losses suffered by the ISIS, especially since Russia sent its air force and soldiers into Syria to fight the terrorist state.

Following are some of the quotes from the latest 23-minute audio:

Crusaders and Jews don’t dare to come on the ground because they were defeated in Iraq and Afghanistan Be confident that God will grant victory to those who worship him, and hear the good news that our state is doing well. The more intense the war against it, the purer it becomes and the tougher it gets.

Jews, soon you shall hear from us in Palestine which will become your grave. The Jews thought we forgot Palestine and that they had distracted us from it.

Not at all, Jews. We did not forget Palestine for a moment. With the help of Allah, we will not forget it… The pioneers of the jihadist fighters will surround you on a day that you think is distant and we know is close. We are getting closer every day.

The same day the video was posted, The American-led strike force captured a key dam north of the ISIS de facto capital of Raqqa, cutting off a supply route

The international terrorism watchdog group Terror Monitor tweeted on Saturday:

#UPDATE #ISIS Leader Al-#Baghdadi “God Has Made The #Jews Around The World Regather In #Israel, Easier For Us To Fight Them All At Once”

#ISIS Leader #Baghdadi “Soon you #Jew will pay heavily, Your houses, Palestine will be your grave. You will hide behind trees and stones”.

#ISIS Leader #Baghdadi “#Jews Thought We Forgot #Palestine, Wishful Thinking! We Are Indeed Approaching It Very Soon.”

Egypt Claims Terror not Involved in Explosion of Russian Jet over Sinai

Monday, December 14th, 2015

Egypt has determined that a bomb did not cause the explosion on the Russian Metrojet that exploded on October 31 shortly after taking off from the airport at Sharm el-Sheikh.

The investigators’ conclusions totally contradict Russia’s and may be a handy way of escaping accusations that Egyptian security was lapse or, even worse, that security workers cooperated with terrorists to bring down the plane.

The announcement also may help the tourist industry, seriously damaged since the jet blew up.

Egypt’s announcement Monday that it “found no evidence so far of terrorism or other illegal action linked to the crash that killed all 224 people onboard on October 31” doesn’t make sense considering a statement by investigators last month.

They announced that after having recovering the black box from the plane, they were “90 per cent” sure they heard the sound of a bomb before the crash.
