American-Israeli Dies from Armon HaNatziv Terror Attack

Tuesday, October 27th, 2015

A 76-year-old American-Israel died Tuesday morning from knife and bullet wounds in the deadly attack on a bus in Jerusalem’s Armon HaNatziv neighborhood near Talpiot two weeks ago. One of the terrorists was killed, and the second one was arrested. Both were from the adjacent Jabel Mukhaber neighborhood. The latest victim is former Connecticut school principal Richard Lakin, who was being treated Hadassah Ein Kerem. His death brings to the death from the attack to three. Lakin was principal at Hopewell School for 15 years before making Aliyah with his wife and two children. He will be buried on Wednesday. His sons posted on Facebook Tuesday morning:

Dad passed away this morning. He was 76 years old, and had eight grandchildren. He was butchered by Muslim terrorists who shot him in the head and stabbed him multiple times during an attack on Bus 78 in Jerusalem’s Armon HaNatziv neighborhood. After the attack Dad was rushed to Hadassah Ein Karem Hospital in Jerusalem where the incredible medical staff worked diligently around the clock for two weeks trying to save his life, but, alas, his injuries were too severe. ‘We love you Dad and will do our best to live respectful, loving lives and pass along ‘acts of kindness.’

Other victims of the stabbing and shooting attack are Haviv Chaim, 78, and Alon Goldberg, 51. Chaim’s wife Shoshana was one of 15 others who were wounded in the attack. She suffered serious wounds but is recovering.

Boston ISIS Terrorist Intended to Behead Pamela Geller

Thursday, June 4th, 2015

The radical Islamic State (ISIS)-inspired terrorist who was gunned down by Boston police Wednesday originally intended to behead activist Pamela Geller but later changed his plans and decided to chop off policemen’s heads, CNN reported.

Police killed 26-year-old Usaamah Rahim when he refused to drop his 8-inch military knife, purchased through Amazon, when officers approached to arrest him for the murder plot.

Geller, who is Jewish, is in the forefront of the campaign against radical Islam and grabbed headlines last month when her American Freedom Defense staged a contest for drawing cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed in Texas. The event earned her plenty of harsh criticism for rabble rousing, and she walks around with security guards.

She told CNN Wednesday:

They targeted me for violating Sharia blasphemy laws. They mean to kill everyone who doesn’t do their bidding and abide by their law voluntarily. This is a showdown for American freedom. Will we stand against this savagery or bow down to them and silence ourselves?

Rahim and his alleged conspirator David Wright are said to have dropped their plans to make Geller their first target and decided approximately two hours before the clash with police:

 …Going to … go after them, those boys in blue. Cause … it’s the easiest target.

Wright was arraigned in a Boston court Wednesday and was charged with obstructing a federal investigation by destroying Rahim’s Smartphone that contained evidence of their plot.

Court documents also revealed that Rahim allegedly told Wright after purchasing knives:

I just got myself a nice little tool. You know it’s good for carving wood and … carving sculptures.”

A group of four or five Boston police officers approached Rahim to arrest him when he moved towards them with his drawn military knife and was shot and killed.

Boston Police Commissioner William Evans said that Rahim has been under surveillance and that “he was someone we were watching for quite some time.”

A video shows the shooting, but Rahim’s brother Ibrahim has a different version, which he posted on social media:

Boston Imam Abdullah Faaruuq also doubts that the video shows the whole picture. He said:

We can’t say what happened. We weren’t there. We do see a very vague video that is not clear as to what transpired. It wasn’t at a bus stop. He wasn’t shot in the back and there is not detail enough on the video to tell us exactly what happened.

The Council of American-Islamic Relations’ spokesman also joined the doubters and stated:

We have a number of questions. Why exactly was he being followed? What was the probable cause for this particular stop? Were there any video cameras or body cameras of the incident? How do you reconcile the two versions of the story, the family version being that he was on his normal commute to work at a bus stop?

The denial of the police account and the accusations that police simply gunned down Rahim in cold blood underlines the growing problem in the United States of radical Islam and is a carbon copy of the same mindset of the Islamic world in the Middle East, including the Palestinian Authority and some Israel Arab leaders.

No matter what, the guilty party is the victim.

That is why Rahim, the “victim,” wanted to behead Geller.

She has been active in the campaign against radical Islam since the 9/11 attacks and began her Atlas Shrugs blog, which re-published the cartoons from 2007 of Mohammed, showing him with a bomb in his turban and which set off Muslim riots throughout the Muslim world.

Critics have accused of Islamphobia, and she was banned from speaking at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference in 2019 after four years of having addressed the event. She said she was kept from speaking because she had accused officials of the organization of being “members of the Muslim Brotherhood and secret Islamist agents.”

Pakistan Frees Terrorist behind Murder of Mumbai Chabad Rabbi

Saturday, April 11th, 2015

Israel, France and the United States have sharply criticized Pakistan’s surprise release of the alleged mastermind terrorist allegedly behind the 2008 attacks on a Mumbai hotel and Chabad Center, where Rabbi Gavriel Holtzberg and his wife were among six Americans and 160 others killed, including six Americans.

Israel’s ambassador to India Daniel Carmon said:

Israel is surprised and disappointed by the release of Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi, the mastermind of the Mumbai attack in which, as part of the horrific attack, also Israeli nationals and a Jewish centre – the Nariman [Chabad] House – were targeted.

This release is a setback for the international efforts in the war against terror in which India and Israel are close partners.

The United States said it was “gravely concerned:” after Lakhvi walked out of jail on Friday. French President Francois Hollande, was hosting Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, said the reelease was “deeply shocking.”

Modi said: “There is a need for global action to deal with terrorism. All nations should commit that they will not provide shelter to terrorists but punish them.”

State Department spokesman Jeff Rathke said at the daily news briefing Friday, “Pakistan has pledged its cooperation in bringing the perpetrators, financiers, and sponsors of the Mumbai terrorist attacks to justice, and we urge Pakistan to follow through on that commitment to ensure justice for the 166 innocent people, including six Americans, who lost their lives.”

Lakhvi was released after a Pakistani court suspended his detention. He had been arrested one week after the attacks.

Kenya Foils Attack Packed Cathedral as Country Mourns 148 Deaths

Sunday, April 5th, 2015

Kenya security forces foiled another attack Sunday and saved the lives of approximately 100 people inside a targeted cathedral in Mombasa while the country begins three days of mourning for 148 victims on Thursday’s terrorist attack as Garissa University College.

Kenya officials, under harsh criticism for their slow reaction to the attack, have arrested five suspects.

Kenya is predominantly Christian, and Muslim leaders joined priests on Sunday to speak out against violence.

Churches were heavily guarded for Easter Sunday prayers, and the extra deployment of forces may have led to the prevention of the planned attack on the cathedral.

“We are very concerned about the security of our churches and worshippers, especially this Easter period, and also because it is clear that these attackers are targeting Christians,” said Willybard Lagho, priest and chairman of the Coast Interfaith Council of Clerics.

Police have been deployed at malls and public buildings in Nairobi and along the eastern coast, while authorities have tried to close holes in the border with Somalia with the aid of helicopters.

Students at Garissa College told the country’s The Daily Nation that there had been warnings of a terrorist attack.

“There were rumors that there was going to be an attack on students. Some students said the messages were written in Arabic and that the writer cautioned Muslim students,” one student said, but some people thought it was an April Fool’s Day prank.




Copenhagen Terrorist Fooled Police by Acting Drunk

Monday, February 16th, 2015

The Muslim terrorist who killed Jewish guard Dan Uzan outside a Copenhagen synagogue late Saturday night was able to approach and kill him by acting drunk to fool two nearby policemen into thinking that he was not a terrorist.

The policemen apparently did not understand that good Muslims don’t drink, even if they do murder.

The Copenhagen Post wrote that the Danish newspaper Politiken reported that the attacker, Omar Abdel Hamid El-Hussein, “stumbled and weaved towards the synagogue, enabling him to get close to Dan Uzan, the man standing guard at the synagogue, and two policemen.”

El-Hussein, as The Jewish reported here, was on Denmark’s terror watch list and had a criminal record that included gang-related activities as well as offenses with violence and weapons.

El-Hussein possessed two other guns when police killed him after a massive manhunt. He is another example of a terrorist who does not fit the illusion of bleeding heart leftists who want to believe that poor education and oppression drive Muslims to radical Islam.

El-Hussein, a Danish national, was a “very talented and gifted student who did well professionally,” adult learning school director Peter Zinkernagel, told the Copenhagen Post.

However, he was expelled in 2013 because he stabbed someone, indicating that he also had a talent for violence.

El-Hussein was sentenced to two years in prison for aggravated assault, but – guess what? – he was released last month because he had completed a “long part” of his sentence.

Police have not finished investigating El-Hussein’s attacks on a Copenhagen café and the synagogue.

They have arrested two men on having provided him with the murder weapon, and then getting rid of it and helping to hide the murderer.

Jens Madsen, the head of Denmark’s security service, told the BBC that el-Hussein may have  “inspired by militant Islamist propaganda issued by IS [Islamic State] and other terror organizations.”





Sydney Chabad Hanukkah Menorah Lighting Canceled ‘Out of Respect’

Thursday, December 18th, 2014

The public Hanukkah candle lighting at Sydney’s Martin Place was canceled for the first time in 30 years following the terror attack that killed two Australians.

Chabad, which has erected a giant 33-foot Hanukkah menorah in downtown Sydney for the past three decades, issued a statement Thursday, saying: “Due to the very recent terror attack in Martin Place and with sensitivity towards the families of the victims of terror, the Hanukkah commemoration scheduled for this evening has regrettably been canceled.”

“The Jewish community of Australia expresses our deepest sympathy for the families of the Martin Place tragedy. May the lights of the festival of Hanukkah bring comfort and warmth to our nation,” the statement concluded.

The giant menorah was scheduled to be erected Monday night, but the 16-hour siege inside Lindt chocolate café, just yards away from where the menorah is normally erected, was still underway.

Two hostages, café manager Tori Johnson, 34, and barrister Katrina Dawson, 38, were killed around 2 a.m. Tuesday when special agents stormed the café and killed the lone gunman, Man Haron Monis, a self-styled Iranian cleric who had forced hostages to hold up a flag bearing the Shahada – the testament of the Islamic creed – in the window.

Instead of the public candle lighting, Johnson’s father Ken was greeted Thursday afternoon at the memorial site – a sea of tens of thousands of bouquets of flowers – by multi-faith leaders, including Levi Wolff and Zalman Kastel, both Chabad rabbis.

“We have people from all faiths coming together to show that we are a very strong united people and a strong country,” Rabbi Wolff said. “A small, little bit of light distills a tremendous amount of darkness.”

Rabbi Elimelech Levy, from Chabad Youth of New South Wales, told Haaretz earlier this week, “We haven’t cancelled it [and] we are waiting to hear back from authorities. We’d like it to go ahead, and to pay tribute to the victims of terror.”

And what about Christmas?

Sydney is toning down the public festivities for the holiday but not banning the lighting of trees. The usual colorful decorations and pictures of Santa will not be displayed, the London Telegraph reported, but two Christmas trees will be put up at the central train station.

Rabbi Levy said concerning the ban on the public lighting of the Hanukkah menorah, “If we cancel the event we are giving terrorist exactly what they want. We want to do it compassionately for the victims.”

The Chabad.org website wrote that after the siege of the Lindt coffee shop, the local Chabad rabbi placed a plaque affixed to the menorah that stated, “The Jewish Community of Australia expresses our deepest sympathy for the families of the Martin Place tragedy. May the light of the festival of Hanukkah bring comfort and warmth to our nation.”

A little bit of darkness dims the light.

An earlier version of this article incorrectly stated that Sydney authorities ordered that the menorah not be lit.

ISIS Beheading of British Citizen Wakes Up Cameron

Saturday, October 4th, 2014

The British government finally woke up and vowed to destroy ISIS after the radical Islamic group posted on Friday a video that purported to show the beheading of British aid worker Alan Henning Friday.

It was the fourth time ISIS, AKA Islamic State and lately IS, has posted a video of beheadings, the first ones being American journalists James Foley and afterwards a Jew, Steven Sotloff.

Britain, like all European countries, is being overwhelmed with a burgeoning Muslim population, and the fundamentalists, whether a majority or a minority, have hijacked the new demographics and already has established Sharia law as the supreme law in some communities.

The more the Muslim demographic revolution overruns countries such as Belgium and France, the more the governments are afraid to do anything that might upset them and cause violence. The more they refrain, the more the radicals show their presence through fear.

Fear is the biggest weapon of radical Islamists, and ISIS has mastered the strategy through beheadings. It is more brutal than simply hanging or shooting someone in the back of the head, but the end result is the same. Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu tries and tries, so far unsuccessfully, to convince the world that ISIS and Hamas are one and the same. The West doesn’t buy it because doing so would ruin the peace process sham.

Everyone denies reality until it happens to close to home.

ISIS gave advance notice to Britain that British aid worker Henning was next in line, and the British Parliament last promptly voted to join the American-led coalition to strike ISI in Iraq, which the Royal Air Force bombed on Saturday.

Friday’s video sows the ISIS executioner, apparently the same British-accented so-called human being who decapitated three previous victims. It also shows Henning, with his tied behind his back.

“Because of our parliament’s decision to attack the Islamic state, I, as a member of the British public, will now pay the price,” Henning said in the video.

Cameron now is boiling.

“It is senseless. It is completly unforgivable. Anyone in any doubt about this organization can now see how truly repulsive it is and barbaric it is,” he said Saturday.

Good morning, Mr. Cameron.
