13 Year Old Boy Attacked in Paris Suburb

Sunday, January 25th, 2015

A 13 year old boy was maced in a northeastern suburb of Paris last week, according to a report published online by the National Bureau of Vigilance Against Anti-Semitism (BNVCA).

The incident occurred Tuesday evening (Jan. 20) in Le Pre-Saint-Gervais.

The boy was surrounded by a group of three young thugs who appeared to be of North African descent, according to an eyewitness report.

The boy was visibly Jewish, making him an easy mark because he wore a kipah and tzitzit, an eyewitness testified.

One of the attackers sprayed the boy in the eyes with mace or pepper spray, temporarily blinding him. Then the perpetrator fled with two cohorts.

The victim was rushed to a nearby clinic, suffering intense pain for about 30 minutes after the attack. He received medical care at the clinic for the injury.

 

Palestinian Top Terror Music Video of the Week: A Satirical Commentary

Wednesday, January 14th, 2015

Hamas does it again with its Top Hits of All Time, and this week it’s a smashing music video from that Top Terror organization heating up all the beating hearts in Gaza.

The group’s Islamic Block at Al Quds University has just produced a special quick flick showing all the fans out there exactly how to murder Jews. It’s a musical enactment of the murder of two praying Jews, wearing their prayer shawls.

<iframe width=”560″ height=”315″ src=”//www.youtube.com/embed/zNSsb1O9FfA” frameborder=”0″ allowfullscreen></iframe>

The first praying man up is clearly no match for the heroic Hamas fighting men of radical Islam, with one who approaches with stealth and vigor, swiftly stabbing him to death over and over before slinking away and vanishing.

Our second contender is seen absorbed in his prayers, standing tall – but again, no match for the overwhelming forces of the fearless fighters of Hamas, who dance over to the praying Jew in a special choreographed movement, surrounding him completely and emptying their assault rifle clips into his body. He falls to the floor, his lifeblood leaving his body after the masked heroes of Hamas “open fire, [and] have no mercy.”

Overcome with gratitude to Allah for having merited the honor to murder two Jews, the entire terror squad – oops, I mean, Resistance Battalion – drops to its knees and bows their heads reverently in prayer.

It’s a top-of-the-charts video, folks. “Islamic Block (Hamas) of Al-Quds University”

(Translation courtesy of the Palestinian Media Watch organization) and you can catch it on Facebook (Jan. 12, 2015) on the page of the Islamic Block (Hamas.)

Lyrics:

Load your machine gun and advance, son of proud Jerusalem

Gird yourself with flames and capture the soldiers

Open fire, have no mercy, shoot the Zionists!

Advance with your men, O keffiyeh-masked one!

The land of the Night Journey [Jerusalem] is our [first] direction of prayer

Its liberation is our goal

Palestinian, lead the attack and raise our flag.”

Ed. Note: PMW has documented that the Palestinian Authority led by PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas and the entity’s leading Fatah faction, also led by Abbas, have publicly glorified the murderers who recently slaughtered four rabbis – three U.S.-Israel dual citizens and one UK-Israel dual citizen – in a Jerusalem synagogue. Hamas is a partner with Fatah in the PA unity government. An advisor to Abbas himself posted on his own Facebook page “pictures from the scene of the heroic operation,” showing the bloodied, badly mutilated dead bodies of the Jewish martyrs. Decades-long incitement through carefully cultivated media campaigns such as these have created the monsters who are no longer able to even envision a world in which peace is a possibility, let alone a need.

Dramatic Video of Police Killing Knife-Wielding Man at 770 [video]

Tuesday, December 9th, 2014

The Crown Heights Info website has released a dramatic video showing the entire attempted murder of Jews at the Chabad 770 Torah study hall in the pre-dawn hours Tuesday and a policeman’s neutralizing the man with a single bullet.

Footage shows the man standing in the Beit Midrash study hall with a knife. A policeman pulled out a gun and said, “Hands up.”

The man raised his hands but as soon as the police officer returned the gun to his holster, the man moved menacingly towards the police officer and then started running through the Torah study hall, yelling, “I want to kill a Jew” while policemen tried to trap him until a gunshot ended the chase.

The victim suffered serious wounds but his condition is not life-threatening. The attacker died in the hospital from his bullet wound.

Knesset Committee Approves Conversion Bill For Final Plenum Readings

Monday, October 27th, 2014

A Knesset committee has for the second time approved a bill allowing local rabbis to oversee conversions to Judaism in Israel, and the bill is now slated to be returned to the full Knesset for its second and third readings.

The Knesset Constitution, Law and Justice Committee on Monday approved the conversion bill by a vote of 6 to 5. It had previously been approved in March, but the committee was required to vote a second time following the addition of 38 amendments proposed by the opposition, all of which were voted down by the committee.

Despite the fact that the bill is now officially out of committee, it is unknown when it will move to the Knesset floor. Israeli media reported last week that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had withdrawn his support for the bill in order to shore up his coalition base and not upset the Haredi Shas and United Torah Judaism parties, whom he might need to form an alliance in future governments.

The bill was sponsored by Elazar Stern of Tzipi Livni’s HaTnua party and is opposed by the Likud and Jewish Home parties as well as the Haredi parties and chief Rabbi David Lau and his Sephardi counterpart, Rabbi Yitzhak Yosef.

Under the measure, as many as 30 courts made up of municipal rabbis would be allowed for the purpose of conversion. Currently there are 33 rabbis and four conversion courts that can perform conversions throughout Israel.

“We are pleased that, in the end, the lawmakers were able to see beyond the politics and reach out to potential converts in a positive way,” Rabbi Seth Farber, director of the ITIM Jewish Advocacy Center, who was involved in the drafting of the bill and participated in the hearing told JTA. “Each day, hundreds of individuals who made aliyah as Jews but aren’t recognized as Jews by the rabbinate are being alienated by the Jewish State. This bill provides them a small glimmer of light.”

‘ISIS Jew’ Report May Be False

Monday, October 13th, 2014

The words “ISIS’ and “Jew” make a great combo for a thrilling headline, but the report this week that a French Jewish girl joined the terrorist organization so far has not been confirmed or dismissed.

The London Daily Mail, in a report on young girls falling to temptations to join the fanatic Muslim terrorist empire, “ Despite ISIS repeatedly expressing of deep hatred of Jews, there was even a Jewish girl, according to a security official who spoke anonymously because rules forbid him to discuss open investigations.”

The report made all the rounds of Israeli news sites and is the talk of the town in France, but so far, it is only a rumor.

Some people claim the mysterious girl is from Marseilles. Other assert she is from Paris.

The French Interior Ministry says it has no update on the report.

“No one should throw rumors around. There is no proof that this really happened, French legislator Meir Haviv said, according to Globes. The Interior Ministry is trying to trace everybody [who joined ISIS] and their families. Even if she is Jewish, I cannot understand why a Jew would join ISIS. If true, she probably is half-Muslim.”

He added, “if there really is a Jewish girl who went with ISIS, this is the end of the world – complicated and complex.”

A French Jewish journalist said his research indicates the girl is from Paris. “She met with people at a center that is against radical religions before she traveled, and officials are trying to track her down,” he reported. She wants to travel to Syria, according to sources I spoke with.”

One rabbi in France said, “It is not possible that something like this happened. There are lots of rumors. Some say she is Jewish, and other says she converted. It is worrisome.”

A Marseilles resident suggested that the rumor may be a lie to blacken the name of Jews.

French intelligence official estimate that at least 100 young girls have crossed the border in recent weeks to join ISIS in Syria, part of a campaign to exploits girls suffering from personal problems.

 

 

Pro-Arab Peacenik Assault Jewish Leader after NY Nets-Maccabi Game

Thursday, October 9th, 2014

Leonard Petlakh, the head of a Jewish Y in Brooklyn, was hospitalized for a broken nose Tuesday night after being punched by a pro-Palestinian protester following the exhibition basketball game between the NBA’s Nets and Maccabi Tel Aviv.

Petiakh’s 14-year-old and 10-year-old sons were with their father at the time of the attack while exiting the Barclays Center arena following the Nets’ 111-94 victory.

“The last thing I remember is this guy screaming ‘Free Palestine’ and then a really strong punch,” Petlakh told JTA. “To get bloodied in front of your kids, it really crosses all the red lines.”

The assailant ran away and Petlakh sought medical care and required eight stitches. He reported the incident to the police, who are investigating the attack as a hate crime.

Prior to the game, a reception was held to raise funds for the Friends of the Israel Defense Forces.

Fans verbally sparred inside the arena as the game was ending when pro-Palestinian protesters began shouting slogans and a pro-Israel fan grabbed a Palestinian flag from one of the protesters, according to Petlakh.

As the crowds spilled out of the arena and onto the street, one of the protesters took a swing at Petlakh.

The Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP), which sponsored the protest rally, condemned the attack.

“If something happened after the game, which would have been several hours after the protest ended, it had nothing to do with us or the demonstration,” JVP said in a press release. “(We) express our horror at the injuries that Mr. Petlakh suffered.”

Swiss Jew Wounded in Hate Crime

Wednesday, August 13th, 2014

An Orthodox Jew from Belgium was lightly wounded in an assault in Switzerland, which witnesses called an anti-Semitic attack.

The victim of the Monday evening assault in the Davos area is a 26-year-old tourist from Antwerp, according to a report published Wednesday in the online edition of the Swiss Jewish weekly Tachles.

The victim, identified as A. Wachsstock, was walking toward his car, where his wife and four children were waiting for him, when a man in his 60s began hitting him and shouting anti-Semitic profanities, including “Juden raus,” or “Jews, get out” in German.

Wachsstock entered his car with lacerations on his right hand from the assault and drove away, Tachles reported. The man’s family witnessed the assault.

Wachsstock complained to police about the assault but no suspects are in custody.

In 2011, a man in his 20s seriously wounded a French Jew in the parking lot of Geneva’s Natural History Museum while the victim was putting a baby carriage in the trunk of his car. He was stabbed four times in view of his family.

The man suspected of the attack was declared last year unfit to stand trial for mental reasons.
