High Court Maintains Ban on Israeli Arab MK Hanin Zoabi

Wednesday, December 10th, 2014

The High Court has rejected an attempt by Israeli Arab Knesset Member Hanin Zoabi of the Balad party to block the parliament from banning her activity.

One after another, the five-member panel of justices scored Zoabi for her claims that she backs non-violence. Zoabi clearly identifed with the Hamas kidnap-murderers of three yeshiva students in Gush Etzion in a broadcast interview on Radio Tel Aviv last June, before it was known that the boys had been murdered.

Zoabi was barred for six months from all Knesset activity other than voting in response to a flurry of complaints from her colleagues — including Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein — about a statement she made regarding the abduction and particularly brutal murder of Eyal Yifrach, Naftali Frenkel and Gilad Sha’ar  were not guilty of terrorism.

“Is it strange that people living under occupation and living impossible lives, in a situation where Israel kidnaps new prisoners every day, is it strange that they act this way? They are not terrorists. Even if I do not agree with them, they are people who do not see any way open to change their reality, and they are compelled to use means like these until Israel wakes up and sees the suffering, feels the suffering of the other.”

The complaints charging Zoabi with incitement led the Knesset Ethics Committee to ban Zoabi at the end of July from making speeches, submitting legal questions or initiating debates from the plenum or in committee for half a year. It was the maximum punishment the committee was allowed to impose.

On October 7 Zoabi tried to appeal the ruling in committee, calling it a violation of freedom of speech. That effort failed, and the ban was confirmed by the full plenum at the end of October.

However, Zoabi has still won a victory: despite breaking the laws of the state by repeatedly visiting enemy nations and participating in events clearly as an advocate for an enemy entity (the Palestinian Authority), Zoabi has yet to be charged with treason.

Moreover, despite her verbal support for an enemy during wartime in July – when Israel was facing impending conflict with the Hamas terrorist organization, as she obviously knew, being a privileged lawmaker – Zoabi is free.

Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein ruled in the current case that Zoabi’s statements in July did not constitute criminal incitement.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

President Rivlin Bans Performance of Singer because of Anti-Arab Song

Tuesday, November 25th, 2014

President Reuven Rivlin announced Tuesday he has cancelled the scheduled performance of musician-singer Amir Benayoun because of a song he wrote and released after last week’s Har Nof massacre and which is called “Ahmed Loves Jerusalem.”

Benayoun wrote the lyrics of a fictitious Arab who learns at a government-funded university and plans to kill Jews.

“Ahmed” sings, “I will send a Jew or two to Hell…. I am just an ungrateful piece of scum. The day will come when you turn your back on me and I will stick a sharp knife into it, I will shoot you in the back.”

That was too much for President Rivlin, whose office said he would not allow Benayoun to perform next Sunday at the Present’s residence at an event marking the exile and expulsion of Jews from Arab Lands and Iran.

“Against the background of the release of Amir Benayoun’s latest song yesterday, I wish to notify you that we will not be able to allow him to perform at the President’s Residence,” the office wrote in a letter that was distributed as a press release.

“Amir Benayoun is a renowned and exceptional artist, and his talent has greatly contributed to Israeli music” the statement continued. “However, his statements made at this time of conflict and tension, even if uttered out of frustration and pain, do not, to say the least, help bring calm to the streets, and are inconsistent with the responsibility required of the President’s Residence, and of all institutions with influence over the public discourse, to work to alleviate tensions, and promote cooperation rather than division in Israeli society.”

Liberals on the left have charged that Benayoun should be arrested for incitement.

Benayoun said he did not intend to promote violence, which he opposes.

One of his former compositions is “Jerusalem of Hussein,” which describes President Barack Obama’s policies.

They Are Murderers and not ‘Terrorists’

Wednesday, November 19th, 2014

Elevating the murderers of four Jews, who were praying in a synagogue, to the status of “terrorists” grossly distorts the concept of terrorism.

They are murderers, just like those who gunned down eight young men studying in the Mercaz HaRav Yeshiva in the heart of Jerusalem six years ago; and just like the barbaric killers of five members of the Fogel family on Erev Shabbat in Samaria three and a half years ago.

They are murderers just like Hamas “militants” and  just like Hezbollah “guerillas” and “resistance fighters” in the Palestinian Authority.

They are murderers just those in the ISIS who behead hostages because they are human beings who act like human beings.

The dictionary, media, sociologists and professors can define terrorism whatever they want, but once it is used to include murder even for ethnic cleansing and genocide, as American sociologist Charley Tilly has claimed, cold-blooded murder for the sake of cold-blooded murder is given an implicit justification.

The Palestinian Authority has incited an entire generation of youth to become “martyrs,” resistance fighters against the ‘occupation.’” It has excited them with a cause that is the personification of evil.

The enemy is not the “occupation.” The enemy is not the Jews. The enemy is not the Jewish religion

This is not a religious war nor is a war for land.

This is a war of the “Children of Light against the Children of Darkness.”

If the world – including Israel – had related to the “resistance fighters” as murderers and not as terrorists, perhaps the same youth would not have felt so exuberant,

No one joining ISIS does so to become a “murderer.” He signs up for the sake of some supposed ideology that is a thin disguise for killing.

Defining them as “terrorists” would put the Nazi butchers in the same category.

They are killers, murderers, butchers, barbarians and evil.

They are not human enough to be terrorists.

Midwest White Supremacist Sorry He Killed Gentiles instead of Jews

Monday, November 17th, 2014

The 73-year-old white supremacist who killed three non-Jews in a shooting spree last Passover eve at the Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City and a nearby Jewish retirement home has said that he wanted to feel good by killing Jews before he dies.

Besides suffering from a sick mind, F. Glenn Miller also suffers from emphysema.

In several interview with the Kansas City Star, Miller said that after he killed his victims, he was surprised to learn from a newspaper report that they were not Jewish, but he still had the satisfaction of making “Jews feel less secure.”

“I was convinced there would be all Jews or mostly Jews” at the two centers, he said,

Two of those were killed were a grandfather and his 14-year-old grandson, who were at the Jewish center for an audition for a singing contest. The third victim was visiting his mother at the retirement home.

Miller, who once founded a Ku Klux Klan group, is really sorry about the death of the grandson, the “young white boy,” as he described him.

He has been charged with murder but his trial that was scheduled last week was delayed so he could be examined for his mental health.

It will be interesting to discover if the doctors find anything in his brain.

Arab Violence in Jerusalem Forces Police to Return Law and Order

Thursday, October 23rd, 2014

Widespread violence and several riots that erupted in Arab neighborhoods in Jerusalem overnight following the murder of an American-Israeli baby have forced the police to fill the vacuum that the government created with a “hands-off” policy that have left both Arab and Jewish citizens at the mercy of terrorist anarchy.

Palestinian Authority media are claiming that Wednesday’s car-light rail collision that killed three-month-old Chaye Zisel Braun was an accident and not a terrorist attack.

The driver of the car has died from his wounds, but even if police ever will be able to conclude that he was not a terrorist – despite circumstantial evidence to the contrary – he definitely was a murderer.

The response from hundreds of Arabs was more attempted murder. They wounded a driver in a rock-throwing attack in eastern Jerusalem, and dozens of other Arabs rioted in Silwan, across the street from the Western Wall.

Little children in kindergarten in the Maaleh Zeitim were targets for rock-throwers Thursday morning.

Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat complained after the apparent terrorist attack on Wednesday that “Jerusalem has become unbearable” and that action must be taken to quell violence.

If the good mayor had said that two or three years ago, and not today and two or three months ago, perhaps the baby killed yesterday would still be alive.

Police have tried to ignore dozens of “almost murders” in dozens if not hundreds of ambushes of Jewish motorists who have been abandoned as sitting ducks for Arab rock-throwers in narrow streets in eastern Jerusalem, part of the city that the Palestinian Authority demands as part of its would-be state.

The Arab response to the shooting of the terrorist, or killer if you wish, is typical of a culture that dates back 3,500 years to Ishmael, of whom it is written in Genesis 16:12, “And he will be a wild donkey of a man; his hand will be upon all, and everyone’s hand upon him, and before all his brothers he will dwell.”

Other translations are less flattering, such as a modern Christian version that Ishmael “will be a wild man, as untamed as a wild donkey! He will raise his fist against everyone, and everyone will be against him. Yes, he will live in open hostility against all his relatives.”

Of course, this smacks of racism, just as Jews are “racists” because we are the “Chosen People” and just as anyone upholding the family unit is racist, and God is a racist for not creating men so they can give birth.

The Arab culture sucks up lawlessness. Not all Bedouin are thieves, but most thieves in the Negev are Bedouin. The Be’er Sheva court’s defendants are almost entirely Bedouin.

Not all Arabs are crazy drivers, but almost every crazy driver in Judea and Samaria is an Arab. Traffic fines are useless because the drivers simply don’t pay, assuming the drivers even have a license and assuming their cars are not stolen.

Violence is a way of life in the Palestinian Authority, and whenever anyone, especially Jews, try to clamp down, they are called “occupiers” and are met with more violence.

“The Palestinian Authority does and never has had a culture of peace,” Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon wrote on his Facebook page Thursday. “It is a culture of incitement and jihad against Jews.”

The Palestinian Authority has educated an entire generation to believe in terrorism, and the chance of widespread revolution cannot be totally dismissed, but it is highly unlikely.

The idea of a Palestinian Authority state, especially one that would pre-1967 neighborhoods in eastern, southern and northern Jerusalem, never has excited anyone except the sheikhs in Saudi Arabia and the Western no-nothings in Paris, Brussels, Oslo and Washington. The only thing that excites them is a chance to attack Jews.

Police always try to play down media inciters screaming “Intifada, Intifada” on a slow news day when they remember their agenda is to force a Palestinian Authority state down the throats of Israelis while they still are alive.

ISIS Urges Muslims Worldwide, ‘Kill A Disbeliever’

Tuesday, September 23rd, 2014

The Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) has launched a global campaign to encourage Muslims to randomly murder non-Muslims anywhere in the world.

“If you can kill a disbelieving American or European – especially the spiteful and filthy French – or an Australian, or a Canadian, or any other disbeliever from the disbelievers waging war, including the citizens of the countries that entered into a coalition against the Islamic State, then rely upon Allah, and kill him in any manner or way however it may be,” ISIS spokesman Abu Muhammad al-Adnani stated in explaining the campaign.

“Smash his head with a rock, or slaughter him with a knife, or run him over with your car, or throw him down from a high place, or choke him, or poison him,” he continued.

Adnani has also taunted U.S. President Barack Obama as “a mule of the Jews.”

On Monday, an ISIS-linked global jihad group abducted a French national and is now threatening to execute him. Two American journalists and a British aid worker have so far been beheaded by ISIS in the Syrian border town of Raqqa. The group has threatened to execute a second British aid worker, Alan Henning, as well, but faced a storm of protest from Muslims around the world who insist that Henning is a “friend to the Ummah.”

British Muslims Plead for ISIS to Free Captive Alan Henning

Thursday, September 18th, 2014

UK Muslims are calling on ISIS to release British captive Alan Henning, an aid volunteer who is next on the beheading list according to the most recent video released by the group.

In their letter, more than 100 Muslim groups and leaders wrote, “We, the undersigned British Muslim Imams, organizations and individuals, wish to express our horror and revulsion at the senseless murder of David Haines and the threat to the life of our fellow British citizen, Alan Henning.”

During the filmed decapitation Saturday of fellow British aid worker David Haines, an ISIS terrorist warned the group would do the same to Henning if the UK continued to support action against ISIS.

It is believed the man who is carrying out the beheadings in all of the videos, and who appears to speak English with a British accent, is indeed a British national. “UK media have begun to call him “Jihadi John.”

Numerous Muslims in countries around the world are hurrying to dissociate themselves from the group, insisting that ISIS has no connection to Islam.

The group is rapidly spreading its influence around the globe, with lone wolf operators and ISIS sleeper cells developing in various countries, including the United States. Security officials are working hard to keep up with the group.

This week a massive security sting operation hauled in 15 suspects and foiled an ISIS plot to hold a public beheading in Australia. More than 800 police officers were involved in the raids that focused on 22-year-old Omarjan Azari, who was believed to be the ringleader of the groups local network. He was charged on Thursday with preparing to commit a terrorist act.
