Rabbi of Slain Teen’s Family Calls on Imams, Priests to Condemn Terror

Friday, November 20th, 2015

The Young Israel rabbi of the family of Palestinian Authority murder victim Ezra Schwartz called on all religious leaders to condemn terror.

Schwartz, 18 and from the Boston suburb of Sharon, was one of three people shot and killed when a Palestinian Authority terrorist went on a shooting spree Thursday afternoon at the entrance to Alon Shvut in Gush Etzion, using a Uzi sub-machine gun.

Having run out of ammunition, he then sped away and rammed into people at the Gush Etzion junction before he was apprehended.

The other two people murdered in the attack are Alon Shvut resident Yaakov Don, 49, and a Hebron Arab identified as Shadi Arafeh, 24.

Two women wounded in the ramming attack are in good condition, and one of them is scheduled to be released from Shaarei Tzedek Hospital in Jerusalem Friday morning.

Schwartz was killed when the terrorist opened fire on a line of cars. He and his fellow students from the Yeshivat Ashreinu in Beit Shemesh were in the area to distribute food to soldiers.

He graduated from Maimonides School in the Boston suburb of Brookline this year.

He and his family were members of the Young Israel of Sharon synagogue, where friends and members were overwhelmed by grief after hearing of the murder of Schwartz, who is to be buried on Sunday.

Rabbi Meir Sendor said:

I really think it’s well overdue that religious leaders step up,” Sendor said. “Rabbis, imams, priests. Recognize there is never, ever a justification for violence.

It has been silently accepted that virtually no religious leaders have categorically condemned Palestinian Authority and Israeli Arab attacks. Reform and Conservative rabbis are rarely heard, except to condemn settlements and sermonize on “two states.”

Muslim clergy are out of the picture completely. Priests can mention it without lecturing Israel for “causing” terror because it allows Jews to live in Judea and Samaria.

A haunting acceptance of Islamic terror, especially the murders of Jews, has sown seeds justifying it. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry has tried denying he excused terror this week by commenting in Paris that he could understand the “rationale” for the murders at the offices of the satirical Charlie Hebdo magazine last January. One of the victims was a Jewish cartoonist.

Kerry explained he was not defending terror or rationalizing it but simply saying he understands the reasoning of terrorists.

Hamas spokesman Hussan Badran praised Thursday’s attack calling it “an act of bravery” against “Zionist settlers.”

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said Thursday that “blindness and hypocrisy” stops people from condemning attacks as vehemently as the Islamic State (ISIS) massacres in Paris a week ago.

The Maimonides School stated:

The community is profoundly saddened as we mourn the tragic loss of our recent graduate, Ezra Schwartz, Class of 2015, who was murdered in a terrorist attack today in Israel. Ezra was spending his gap year studying in Israel. Our thoughts and prayers are with Ezra’s family, classmates and friends.

“They miss him. They miss Ezra. We all miss him,” Rabbi Meir Sendor said.

Maimonides School teacher Lori Kipnes told the Boston television station WCVB:

The whole school went into shock. The middle school and the upper school immediately canceled classes, and everybody came together to pray. At first, we heard he was hurt and was in surgery in critical condition. We were praying for his safety and his recovery, but then we got the news that it was too late.

Schwartz is the second alumni of the Maimonides school to be murdered in the last 12 months. Rabbi Moshe Twersky, 59, was killed in the November 14 butchery of five men, four of them rabbis, at a synagogue in the Jerusalem neighborhood of Har Nof. The victims were praying when two Jerusalem Arab terrorists attacked them with butcher knives, axes and a gun.

Turkish Soccer Fans Chant ‘Allahu Akbar’ During Solidarity for Paris

Wednesday, November 18th, 2015

Soccer fans are not the most civilized people in the world.

Nor are Turkish Muslims.

It gets even worse when you put the two together.

Players from Greece and Turkey stopped their friendly game to stand for a one-minute tribute to the memories of those slain by Islamic State (ISIS) terrorists in Paris last and to show solidarity with France.

Thousands of fans did not like the idea.

First they booed.

Then they broke out into a chant of “Allahu Akbar,” Muslim terrorists’ favorite words when killing non-Muslims.

It is no wonder that millions of Muslims in Europe are embarrassed to show their faces in public these days.

Kerry Understands ‘Rationale’ for Terror Attack on Charles Hebdo

Wednesday, November 18th, 2015

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry put both feet in his mouth this time.

It took the massacre of more than 130 people in Paris Friday to cause him to philosophize that the murders were different from other terror attacks which, according to him, had a “rationale,” such as the murders of 12 people at the offices of the Charlie Hebdo satirical magazine.

The “rationale” is that since the satirical caricatures mocking the Muslim Prophet Mohammed aroused anger among Islamists, the murders were understandable. He almost said they were “legitimate” before correcting himself and settling for “rationale.”

He told CBS News from the U.S. Embassy in Paris:

There’s something different about what happened from Charlie Hebdo, and I think everybody would feel that.

There was a sort of particularized focus and perhaps even a legitimacy in terms of—not a legitimacy, but a rationale that you could attach yourself to somehow and say, ‘Okay, they’re really angry because of this and that. This Friday was absolutely indiscriminate. It wasn’t to aggrieve one particular sense of wrong. It was to terrorize people.

It is difficult to believe that Kerry really understood the implications of what he said. His comments were a kind of diplomatic incitement.

His reasoning, such as it is, means there is a rationale for a person to murder a specific victim if he has a specific reason.

In the case of the attacks on the offices of Charlie Hebdo, the terrorists did fire indiscriminately at people, but for Kerry, that doesn’t matter since all of them were working for the same magazine that gave the terrorists a “rationale” to be angry.

The Islamic State (ISIS) terrorists who bombed and gunned down victims Friday night also had a specific victim in mind. ISIS stated that last week’s attacks in Paris were against the “capital of prostitution and obscenity.”

If Kerry can see a “rationale” to murder a magazine’s employees because of caricatures mocking Mohammed, it stands to reason he should see a rationale for murdering people because they live in the “capital of prostitution and obscenity.”

Kerry has spent a good deal of his time as Secretary of State rationalizing Islamic terror, especially the murder of Israelis “because of the settlements.”

He thinks that if the settlements would disappear, Palestinian Authority terror would disappear, just like it was supposed to fade away after the PA’s first – and last – democratic elections 11 years ago, and just like Hamas terror was going to evaporate when Israel expelled all Jews from Gaza and withdrew all Israeli soldiers.

Kerry thinks that if the Charlie Hebdo magazine had not mocked Mohammed, none of the magazine’s workers would have been murdered.

And if Western civilization would evaporate, there would be no more Islamic terror.

Sen. Schumer: Condoning Terror against Israel Led to Paris Massacres

Tuesday, November 17th, 2015

The world is paying a heavy price for years of condoning terror attacks against Israel, New York Democratic Senator Chuck Schumer told National Committee for Furtherance of Jewish Education.

He directly blamed last Friday’s Islamic State (ISIS) massacres in Paris on years of malign neglect as terrorists mowed down Israelis one by one and 10 by 10, with the numbers now in the thousands and going up.

Here are some of his comments, reported by the Jewish Insider:

Israel and the Jewish people have been subject to the same type of terrorism since the 70s. And for so long, when it just happened to Israel, the world condoned it.

They [may have not] condoned it, but maybe didn’t do much about it, and Israel had to fight terrorism on her own.

One of his comments was half-correct and ignored the world’s lack of appreciation for Israel’s putting a virtual end to aerial hijackings in the 1970s.

Schumer said, “Had the world come down when the terrorists shot the Israeli athletes at the Olympics (in Munich 1972), or hijacked El AL planes, and come down on them hard, we wouldn’t have had what happened in Paris, today.”

The world indeed ignored the massacre of Israeli athletes at Munich, and the Olympics Games went on as usual, as if there was only a technical delay.

But it was Israel that taught the world how to deal with the plague of aerial hijackings in the 1970s. Operation Entebbe put a virtual end to the terrorism in the air when elite IDF commandos raided the Entebbe airport in 1976 to rescue more than 100 hostages taken by Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine terrorists.

The world never thanked Israel and instead literally condoned years of terror by excusing it as a result of the “occupation.” So far, no one in Paris has said that those ISIS suicide terrorists bombed and gunned down innocent civilians because of settlements.

Islamists Previously Threatened Le Bataclan in Paris

Half the United States Won’t Accept Syrian Refugees [video]

Tuesday, November 17th, 2015

Half of America’s 50 governors have rejected President Barack Obama’s plan to relocate 10,000 Syrian refugees throughout the country.

Muslim American groups immediately accused them of “Islamophobia.” Ibrahim Hooper, national communications director of CAIR, told Al Jazeera.

We believe these governors are succumbing to fear and Islamophobia. This is really a non-issue because refugees and immigrants are checked thoroughly by the authorities before entering the US.

In Israel, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has stated that Israel is not a position to take in refugees, but Opposition leader Yitzchak “Bujie” Herzog asserted that “Jews cannot be indifferent when hundreds of thousands of refugees are searching for a safe haven.” He did not refer to the risk of terror or the effect on increasing the non-Jewish population in Israel.

Several of the American governors, all of them Republican except for New Hampshire, said they would accept Christian Arabs, prompting President Obama to express his horror at what he called discrimination that is not “American.”

The President said in his speech on Friday night’s Islamic State (ISIS) massacres in Paris:

That is shameful. That is not American. That is not who we are. We don’t have religion tests for our compassion. Pope Francis visited…he didn’t just speak of Christians who are being persecuted…

I was very proud after 9/11 when President Bush] was adamant and declared that is not a war ion Islam….”

Governors’ comments indicated this is a war against terror and not Islam, and since almost all of the terrorists are Muslims, they are not taking any chances.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott wrote in an open letter to President Obama:

Neither you nor any federal official can guarantee that Syrian refugees will not be part of any terroristic activity.

Jeb Bush, one of the leading Republican candidates for the GOP presidential nomination, said that the United States should accept only “the Christians that are being slaughtered.”

Texas Senator Ted Cruz, also vying for the nomination, stated that there “is no meaningful risk of Christians committing acts of terror.”

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker said:

There may be those who will try to take advantage of the generosity of our country and the ability to move freely within our borders through this federal resettlement program, and we must ensure we are doing all we can to safeguard the security of Americans.

Here is a list of states whose governors said they will not cooperate with federal efforts to disperse Syrian refugees:

Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Idaho;

Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Maine;

Massachusetts,Michigan, Mississippi, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey;

North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Wisconsin.

Only seven states have said they will accept refugees. Only one of them, Utah, has a Republican governor. The six states with Democratic governors are:

Connecticut, Hawaii, Kentucky, Minnesota, Pennsylvania, and Washington.

Below is the video of President Obama’s horror that states reject Syrian Muslims refugees:

I Will Not Post the French Flag

Sunday, November 15th, 2015

Sorry people!

I know it’s sensitive but I can’t hold back anymore!

The terror attack this Friday evening in Paris was horrible! Families have been destroyed and the devastation is horrific! I know how they feel, anyone who lives in Israel knows what it feels like to live through terror attacks.


The French government has been condemning Israel at every chance they had! While we are sending our condolences and support to France, they didn’t even bother to cover the attack on Friday when a Jewish father and son were gunned down by Muslim terrorists! France took Hamas off the terrorist list and instead started marking goods produced by Jews in Judea and Samaria!

With all due respect, I will not post a French flag on my Facebook profile and quite frankly I don’t understand why anyone would! It is the French government who has been condemning Israel for fighting the same radical Islamic organizations that attacked Paris!

Some may call me insensitive, I agree! it is exactly this insensitivity that is the reason I am NOT posting a French flag on my feed!

What do you call the reactions (or the lack of) from the French government when Israel has been under attack day in and day out?! Should I call for restraint? Should I give credit to the claims ISIS is using to justify this terror attack?

So instead of putting a French flag up, I will raise the Israeli one. Why? Because Israel warned France and the rest of the world of the effect of radical Islam! We tried to explain who and what we are fighting but they would not listen!

We told them this was not about land or occupation but they didn’t listen! They pressured us to make deals with those who shoot us, blow us up and stab us and when we refuse to do so, they condemn us!

We warned them that this is about a radical culture that has no respect for life, but they ignored us and shook their finger at us for fighting the same radical Islamic ideology that attacked Paris. Only we fight it every day!

So here is the Israeli flag!

The one that is fighting radical Islamic terror every day!

The one flag that is condemned and yelled at from every international podium for fighting the same evil that murdered over 130 of French innocent civilians.
