France Shuts Down 3 ‘Radical’ Mosques Under Emergency Laws

Wednesday, December 2nd, 2015

The French government has shut down three mosques under emergency laws passed in the wake of the Nov. 13 terrorist massacre in Paris.

Those laws gave police sweeping new authority until February 2016, despite rights groups and politicians who expressed concerns about reports of police abuses of power.

“Measures to close down mosques on the grounds of radicalization … have never been made by any previous government, French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve noted in his briefing with media on Wednesday.

He added that police have carried out 2,235 raids across France since the massacre; 334 weapons were seized, including 24 military-grade assault weapons.

The criticism was dismissed by the Interior Minister, however. “It is terrorism, not the state of emergency, which threatens freedoms,” said Cazeneuve.

The multi-site attack by Da’esh (ISIS) operatives and suicide bombers claimed the lives of 130 victims and wounded 350 others.

One of the mosques that was closed is located in the eastern Paris suburb of Lagny-sur-Marne, according to France 24. During the process, nine people were placed on house arrest. Another 22 were banned from leaving the country.

“Police searches [there] turned up a 9mm caliber pistol, a hidden hard drive, documents and files on jihad and a life insurance policy subscribed in 2012,” Cazeneuve said, according to the RFI news outlet.

“The Council of Ministers will now dissolve these three pseudo-cultural organizations which used clandestine prayer rooms on the premises,” he added. Mosques in Lyon (in central eastern France) and Gennevilliers (near Paris) were also closed on grounds of spreading radicalism as well.

Israeli Woman Arrested Trying to Join ISIS

Sunday, August 30th, 2015

An Israeli woman is allegedly heading north to join Da’esh (ISIS) in Syria, according to a report by the Hebrew-language Ma’ariv newspaper online service.

The newspaper quoted officials in an unnamed northern Israeli town.

The woman, reported to be in her forties, allegedly boarded a flight to Turkey Thursday intending to cross the border into Syria to join the terrorist group.

A local source close to the woman’s family said her husband and children notified authorities, saying they feared she was heading to the Syrian region controlled by Da’esh.

“Her husband and children went to the police and also told the Foreign Ministry in the hopes of tracking her down before she crossed the border into Syria,” the source told Ma’ariv.

According to a report by Ha’aretz, Turkish police arrested the woman Friday night as she did indeed attempt to cross the border into Syria.

They allegedly deported her straight back to Israel, where faced a remand hearing on Saturday. She is reportedly being questioned by Israel’s General Security Service, the Shin Bet.

This is not the first case of an Israeli citizen traveling to Turkey in an attempt to join Da’esh, although it may be the first attempt by an Israeli woman on her own.

This past June, a man and wife took their three children from the Galilee town of Sakhnin to join ISIS as well. As have many others, they too traveled first to Turkey, and then crossed the border into the ISIS-held region in Syria. Relatives of the husband notified Israeli authorities after the family left.

‘Jihadi John’ Vows to Return to Britain and ‘Cut off Heads’

Sunday, August 23rd, 2015

The Islamic State’s (ISIS) infamous beheader Mohammed “Jihadi John” Emwazi said on a video that he will return to his native Britain to “carry on cutting heads off,” the London Daily Mail reported Sunday.

The newspaper said it obtained the video, which reportedly fell in the hands of the Free Syrian Army and may have been filmed approximately two months ago in Syria, the first time he has been photographed unmasked. . The video shows a man claiming to be Jihadi John, dressed in black and wearing a cap under his hood. He announced in the video, with a clear British accent:

I will carry on cutting heads.

A Free Syrian Army activist told the Mail:

He looks at the camera and says, ‘I am Mohammed Emwazi. I will soon go back to Britain with the Khalifa’ [the leader of Islamic State].

He said something more about cutting heads off, ‘We will kill the kuffar.’ Then the camera shows two masked men that looked like bodyguards.

Jihdi John said that when he returns to Britain to chop off heads, he will spare “believers.”

Jihadi John is one of the world’s most wanted men with a $96 million bounty placed on his head by the United States for the bheading of Americans, the first of whom was James Foley last year.

EU Receives Warning ISIS Infiltrating Among Migrants

Monday, July 6th, 2015

The European Union is being warned by international security personnel that there may be terrorists infiltrating among the migrants who flock to the continent.

Smugglers’ boats sailing the Mediterranean Sea and carrying migrants to Europe may present a risk to the European Union, according to the warning received by Michele Coninsx, head of Eurojust, the EU judicial cooperation agency.

The agency, which is tasked with helping EU nations respond to illegal immigration, terrorism and cyber crime, warned that some of the migrants may actually be fighters with Da’esh, the ISIS terrorist organization.

In addition, Da’esh and similar groups are using funds obtained from human trafficking to fund their terrorist activities, according to a report by The Associated Press.

Coninsx told reporters on Monday that although she could not share specific information provided by EU nations to Eurojust, the agency’s efforts are ongoing. She added that the scope of the infiltration by Da’esh terrorists now facing EU law enforcement officials is not yet clear.

Nasrallah’s Golan Heights Mughniyeh Appointment Angers Jealous Hezbollah Terrorists

Saturday, June 27th, 2015

The Saudi news-site Al-Watan reports that Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah has appointed the young Mustafa Mughniyah (Mugniyeh) to take command of Hezbollah’s forces on the Syrian side of the Golan Heights, according to NRG.

The job involves both fighting to protect Syrian president Assad’s regime, as well as setting up the terror infrastructure with which to attack Israel.

Mustafa replaces his older brother, Jihad, who was killed on the Golan Heights, along with some Iranian generals, in a reported Israeli air strike in January of this year.

Mustafa’s father, Imad Mughniyah, a former senior Hezbollah leader, aka “The Chief of Staff, was assassinated in a 2008 car bombing in Damascus.

Danny Yatom, former head of the Israeli Mossad said: “He was one of the most dangerous terrorists ever on Earth.”

The U.S. State Department said of Imad: “The world is a better place without this man in it. He was a coldblooded killer, a mass murderer and a terrorist responsible for countless innocent lives lost. One way or another he was brought to justice.”

The report in Al-Watan and in Kuwaiti papers says the appointment of Mustafa has angered senior Hezbollah officials who feel that Mustafa has no experience, and since the Golan Heights is such a difficult and sensitive area, they are worried he will make serious mistakes to Hezbollah’s detriment.

They are also upset that Nasrallah appears to be promoting members of the Mughniyah family at their expense.

Pamela Geller’s Coup Against Jihad, and a Coup Against Moses

Friday, June 19th, 2015


Yishai deals with modern-day and ancient battles. First he is joined by political activist and commentator Pamela Geller, president of the American Freedom Defense Initiative and author, among other books, of “Stop the Islamization of America: A Practical Guide to the Resistance.” She sponsored the “Draw the Prophet” cartoon contest in Garland, Texas, which was attacked by jihadists, who were killed in a shootout. She tells Yishai about the challenges involved in fighting jihad in the US and Israel.

Then, Yishai is joined in-studio by Rabbi Mike Feuer to talk about the internecine Jewish political battles in the Book the Numbers. Was the biblical character Korach a communist or a man of the people? A fighter for democracy or a jealous would-be leader? Why did he pick a fight with Moses? And why did he merit having the Prophet Samuel as his progeny.
