Arab Primary Voters Dump Terror-Supporting MKs Zoabi, Ghattas

Friday, June 17th, 2016

MK Hanin Zoabi, whose National Democratic Assembly (Balad) party is one of the three partner factions making up the Joint Arab List, has been the most frequent candidate for removal both from the elections list and, as MK, from the plenum, as well as defendant in court, all owing to her vicious attacks on Israeli values and on Israeli public officials—including, most recently, cursing out and spitting on Arab police. Now, all who trust in the wisdom of the voters are entitled to a big high-five, as Zoabi has been pushed in the primaries for her faction’s list of Knesset candidates down to spot number 9, well outside the realistic expectations for the 21st Knesset, Makor Rishon reported Friday.

The Joint Arab List, which has one Jewish MK, is a new political creature, a coalition made up of four different parties whose only common denominator is the fact that they are Arab and appeal to the Arab Israeli voter. Hadash, the United Arab List, Balad, and Ta’al, which make up the third largest faction in the 20th Knesset, were, essentially, the brain child of then Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman, who pushed for a higher vote threshold, requiring that a list gain close to four seats before it can claim any of its seats. Realizing that the new rule could wipe out the bulk of the Arab representation in the Knesset, the four parties, with communists, business leaders, ultra-nationalists and religious zealots, found a way to unite in order to stay alive. Ironically, Liberman’s own party, Yisrael Beiteinu, barely made it past the same threshold.

With the four factions sharing the 13 seats they were granted by the voter, it is unlikely for any one of them to get more than three or four MKs, so that Zoabi’s failure to get enough votes for the third or fourth spot in her faction means a resounding demotion by her party members.

But Zoabi did relatively well compared with her fellow Balad MK Basel Ghattas, who shared with her a much slammed ceremony honoring the families of Jerusalem terrorists who had died while murdering Jews. Ghattas was dropped to the 23rd spot, which is political death in the reality of Arab politics.

Another demoted Balad leader, also member of the honor guard to the killers, is Jamal Zahalka, who landed the fifth spot, which would only get him a seat should the Joint Arab List pick up between 18 and 20 mandates, a feat that would necessarily require direct involvement from Mohammed himself, if not an even higher authority.

Anonymous members of the Joint List told Makor Rishon they were pleased with the choices of Balad voters, who replaced their fanatical leaders with seemingly more pragmatic ones, including a woman, Nibin Abu Rahmoun, at the top of the list. The latest choices could revitalize the Balad faction as well as the entire Knesset list, possibly attracting one or two additional seats.

With MK Ghattas’ resounding defeat Balad voters have severed their ties to his uncle, former MK Azmi Bishara, who back in 2007 resigned from the Knesset through the Israeli Embassy in Cairo, following police investigation into his treasonous activities, aiding the enemy during wartime, passing information on to the enemy and contacts with a foreign agent, as well as laundering money received from foreign sources. With that shameful legacy out of the way, the new faces in Balad could devote themselves to improving the quality of life for Israeli Arabs.

PA Arrests Man After Son Curses 9-Year-Old Wife of Mohammed [video]

Saturday, May 7th, 2016

Mirroring ISIS in Syria, the Palestinian Authority arrested an Arab resident of Ramallah after he posted a video onto Facebook of his son cursing one of the wives of Muhammad, according to a report in Al-Watan.

The man said he posted it because he was converting from Sunni Islam to Shiite Islam.

In the video, the boy, encouraged by his father, curses Aisha, Muhammad’s 9-year-old third wife whose father, Abu Bakr, was the first Sunni Caliph. The Shiite’s claim Ali was meant to be the Caliph. Aisha is connected to the Hadith’s which are central to the Sunni version of Islam.

The boy’s father should consider himself lucky that the Palestinian Authority, unlike ISIS, will probably only torture and execute him and not his child – though one can never be sure when it comes to those wacky Palestinian Authority Islamists.

Cave of the Patriarchs Closes to Jews for Muslim Holiday

Tuesday, May 3rd, 2016

The administration of the Cave of the Patriarchs in Hebron has announced it will close its doors to Jews on Wednesday (May 4, Nisan 26) due to the Islamic holiday of Lailat al Miraj.

Both Jews and Muslims pray at the site, where it is believed the Biblical patriarchs Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, and the matriarchs Sarah, Rebecca and Leah are buried, as well as Adam and Eve.

The holiday of Lailat al Miraj commemorates the Islamic prophet Muhammad’s nighttime journey from Mecca to the ‘farthest mosque’ in Jerusalem, from where Muslims believe he ascended to heaven, was purified, and was given the instruction for Muslims to pray five times a day.

“Prayers and visitation will take place on the Seventh Step,” the administration said in its statement.

The Temple Mount will also be closed to Jews on Wednesday for the same reason.

On Thursday the Cave of the Patriarchs will reopen to Jews beginning at 4 am as usual.

Noah and Noam Most Popular Israeli Jewish Names, for Arabs: Mariam and… Mohammed

Monday, December 28th, 2015

(JNi.media) The most common name in Israel in 2014 was Mohammed, as 2,650 Muslim boys born in 2014 were given that name, according to a new release from the Israeli Central Bureau of Statistics. The second most popular name was Noam, given to about 2,000 children, of whom about 1,600 were Jewish boys and about 400 girls. The third most common name in 2014 was Yoseph, given to about 1,350 Jewish newborn boys and 600 tiny Muslim boys. In fourth place came the name Ariel, given to both Jewish boys and girls, about 1,300 and 500, respectively. Other popular unisex names were Uri and Daniel.

Here are more name-related stats for 2014, courtesy of the CBS:

If the most popular name among for Jewish boys was Noam, given to 1,600 newborn males, the most common name for newly born Jewish girls was Noah, with 1478 given it, making Noah the most common name for Jewish women in 15 years.

The Mohammed or Ahmed choice was made for one in five Muslim boys, 2600 and 968, respectively.

Among Muslim girls the most common name was Mariam — 419.

In 2012 only 36 Jewish boys were named Ovadia. In 2013, the year Rabbi Ovadia Yosef passed away, 117 boys were given the name, and in 2014 209.

Eitan (Ethan) climbed from tenth to seventh place among Jewish boys—the increase taking place during Operation Tzuk Eitan (a.k.a. Operation Protective Edge).

Adele continues to be popular, and there has been an increas in the number of girls given this name.

Finally — the name Romy is on the rise, to No. 15 after being ranked 29th the year before.

Have a sweet new calendar year, and don’t forget to check on little Mohammed and little Noah before you turn off the lights.

Police Arrest Woman for Calling Mohammed a Pig

Tuesday, July 28th, 2015

Mohammed the Prophet is not a pig. Let’s make that perfectly clear, so I don’t get arrested for angering a Muslim.

Mohammed is dead. Whether he was a pig or not, or really is a pig in his after life, is not known.

It is known that a 20-year-old Israeli yelled in front of Muslim women on the Temple Mount, “Mohammed is a pig.”

The Muslims did not call Jews pigs. They simply screamed, “Slaughter the Jews.”

Now, guess who was arrested, the Muslim women calling for murder or the Jewess insulting the prophet of Islam, may he rest in the peace process?

Jerusalem police spokeswoman Luba Samri said the police show “zero tolerance” toward such provocations as calling Mohammed a pig, so the Jew, Avia Morris, was arrested.

Police arrested another Israeli on Monday for uttering the same expression.

Morris told Channel 2 television:

They [Muslim women] wouldn’t stop insulting us. They didn’t stop offending our feelings and those of Jews. At some point, after more than an hour of taunts and insults, I decided to respond after things reached a climax.

Arabs, of course, reacted with something other than “oink, oink.” Arab media posted the video of Morris making her remark, and Arabs dutifully responded by rioting like, uh, wild pigs.

That is why police arrested her. They don’t want to deal with Arab riots.

Jews don’t riot when Arabs say, “Slaughter the Jews.”

The police go into action only after the Arabs actually do slaughter the Jews, such as last year in a Jerusalem synagogue, where three rabbis and another Jew were hacked to death during morning prayer services.

No, Mohammed is not a pig. Why insult a pig?

ISIS Claims ‘Credit’ for Attack at Mohammed Cartoon Contest

Tuesday, May 5th, 2015

The Islamic State (ISIS) has claimed responsibility for the terrorist attack Sunday night in Garland Texas, where a contest was being held for drawing cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed.

The radio channel run by ISIS announced the claim Tuesday, and tweets by the two terrorists killed in the attack have been linked with ISIS.

It added:

We tell America that what is coming is more bitter and harder and you will see from the soldiers of the Caliphate what harms you.

One of the gunmen, Elton Simpson, posted a tweet shortly before the attack that wounded a security guard, “#texasattack:May Allah accept us as mujahideen.” He also encouraged his followers to read tweets by an ISIS propagandist, who tweeted after the attack, “Allah Akbar!!!! 2 of our brothers just opened fire.”

The same tweet stated that he and the second terrorist, Nadir Sofa, pledged allegiance to “Amoral Mu’mineen,” which means “the leader of the faithful,” a likely reference to the recently wounded ISIS leader Abu Bakr al Baghdadi.

The apparent success of the ISIS to infiltrate into the United States coincides with polls showing that terror, especially the Islamic State, is the biggest worry of Americans.

As the campaigns rev up for the Republic and Democratic presidential nominations, the Democrats will be on the defensive to show their party is best equipped to win the war against terror.

Muslims Burn French Flag on the Temple Mount [video]

Saturday, January 17th, 2015

Hundreds of Israeli and Palestinian Authority Muslims used the sacred Temple Mount Friday to burn the French flag in protest of the Charles Hebdo satirical magazine caricature this week of the Prophet Mohammed.

The cartoon depicts him crying over the murders of 12 people at the magazine’s office and shows a banner proclaiming, “All is forgiven.”

While Muslims in Jerusalem protested by burning the French flagon the Temple Mount, their brethren in Asia, Africa and Europe set fire to churches and raided shops run by Christians in Niger, attacked police n Algiers and Jordan, and burned the French flag in Pakistan.

It no longer is the “occupation” and the “Zionist enemy” that are the targets of angry Muslims.

The burning of the French flag on the holy site of the Temple Mount, as a response to the attack on Charles Hebdo journalists, has exposed, once again, that a large number of Israeli and Palestinian Authority Muslims act in the name of religion and not for a Palestinian Authority state.

The protesters on Friday screamed:

Burn it burn it! ….. in the cause of God. Allah the greatest. Prophet Mohammed is our leader forever.

God. Allah. The Prophet Mohammed.

Everything is in the name of God, but President Barack Obama and his counterpart in France don’t see it that way.

The French government last week continued to placate Muslims. President Françoise Holland declared, that Muslims were “the first victims of fanaticism, fundamentalism and intolerance.”

French Prime Minister Manuel Valls had a  bit more common sense and said that France is  in “a war against terrorism, against jihadism, against radical Islam, against everything that is aimed at breaking fraternity, freedom, solidarity.”

That is more than President Barack Obama can admit.

He was careful not use the “M” word when he denounced the attacks in France and said:

The fact that this was an attack on journalists, attack on our free press, also underscores the degree to which these terrorists fear freedom of speech and freedom of the press.

But the one thing that I’m very confident about is that the values that we share with the French people, a belief — a universal belief in the freedom of expression, is something that can’t be silenced because of the senseless violence of the few.

White House  Press Secretary Josh Earnest explained that radical Islam was not mentioned because “these terrorists are individuals who would like to cloak themselves in the veil of a particular religion.”

Obama’s position suggests that if a Muslim kills anyone in a terrorist attack, he is not acting as a Muslim.

And does the president think that any Muslim who burns the French flag in the name of Allah is not acting as a Muslim?
