European Jewish Congress: Sweden’s Recognition of PA ‘Favors Terror’

Sunday, October 5th, 2014

The European Jewish Congress (EJC) charges Sunday that Sweden’s recognition of the Palestinian Authority as a formal nation “favors extremism and Islamist terror during a period when the Middle East and indeed, European citizens, are directly faced with these threats.”

Sweden’s Prime Minister Stefan Löfven told legislators on Friday that formal recognition of the PA is a statement to present the “two-state” solution as fact, as reported here.

EJC President Dr. Moshe Kantor described the decision as “reckless, irresponsible and dangerous.”

“Sweden has placed itself outside the consensus of the European Union and has chosen to reward terror instead of embracing peace through a negotiated settlement,” Kantor said. “What exactly Sweden thinks it is recognizing, the Hamas-Fatah terror coalition that supports unprovoked rocket attacks on civilians in Israel? Or is it two Palestinian states, one in Ramallah and one in Gaza?

“Perhaps Sweden isn’t aware of how close Hamas came to taking over the whole of the Palestinian Authority only two months ago. If it really intends to actualize this statement, it may well end up with full diplomatic relations with a terror state, run by a group recognized throughout the EU as a terror organization.”

It is not coincidental that Sweden, like other European countries, is being overwhelmed by Muslim immigrants, whose immediate presence in leftist parties tilts government policies in favor of the Palestinian Authority.

Muslims account for nearly 10 percent of Sweden’s population, and the country has accepted nearly 100,000 refugees this year from Iraq and Syria.

Jewish Groups Back Muslim Woman’s Headscarf Appeal to Supreme Court

Sunday, October 5th, 2014

Two Jewish groups joined a friend of the court brief on behalf of a Muslim woman whose right to wear a headscarf in a retail job is under consideration by the Supreme Court.

The court on Thursday agreed to hear the case, Politico reported.

The American Jewish Committee and the Commission on Social Action of Reform Judaism joined an amicus with Christian, Muslim and Sikh groups. The Anti-Defamation League and the Orthodox Union also are considering amicus briefs.

The federal Equal Opportunity Employment Commission brought the suit against Abercrombie & Fitch on behalf of Samantha Elauf, who had been recommended for hiring at an outlet in Tulsa, Okla. The outlet subsequently reversed its recommendation.

A lower court, the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver, ruled against Elauf, saying that she needed to give “explicit notice of the conflicting religious practice and the need for an accommodation for it, in order to have an actionable claim for denial of such an accommodation.”

That decision described Abercrombie & Fitch’s “Look Policy,” which, the court said, the retailer considers “critical to the health and vitality of its ‘preppy’ and ‘casual’ brand.”

Elauf contends that wearing the headscarf during her interview and communications with managers through a friend who worked at the store was sufficient.

The friend had checked with one manager who, citing the case of an employee who had worn a yarmulke, said there should not be a problem.

Elauf interviewed with another manager who was not certain of the policy and after consulting with her superiors dropped her initial recommendation to hire. Elauf did not explicitly raise her faith as an issue during the interview.

The religious groups argue in their brief that requiring an explicit notice of religious requirements is overly stringent.

“Hiring processes are often technologically structured in a way that precludes the employee from even raising the issue during the application process,” the brief argues.

Arkansas Shooting Range Declares Itself ‘Muslim-Free Zone’

Thursday, October 2nd, 2014

The woman owner of the Gun Cave Indoor Shooting Range in Hot Springs, Arkansas has declared her territory a “Muslim-free zone” because of domestic terror by Muslims.

Jan Morgan posted on her website 10 reasons to support her new policy, which is certain to be challenged in the courts.

Lawyers are going to make a lot of money over this.

One of her arguments is that the United States refused to classify several murders as acts of terrorism, particularly last week’s beheading by a Muslim convert in Oklahoma, the attack by a Muslim on Fort Hood and the Boston Marathon bombing carried out two years ago by two Muslims.

Morgan also wrote that two Muslim men, speaking in broken English, came to her range recently and asked to rent and practice with semi-automatic rifles and ammunition but could not provide identification other than a California’s driver’s license.

She agreed to rent one weapon but removed all other customers from the range while the two men shot.

Morgan is preparing for lawsuits charging her with discrimination.

Following are her 10 reasons for a “Muslim-free zone,” complete with her spelling of “Muslim” with a small ”m.”

1) The Koran, which I have read and studied thoroughly and (which all muslims align themselves with), contains 109 verses commanding hate, murder and terror against all human beings who refuse to submit or convert to Islam….

2) My life has been threatened repeatedly by muslims who are angry that I have studied their koran and have, over the past two years, been exposing the vileness of the Koran and its murderous directives.

3) The barbaric act of beheading an innocent American in Oklahoma by a muslim;

* the Boston bombings(by muslims)

* the Fort Hood mass shooting (by a muslim) that killed 13 people and injured over 30 people

* and the murder of 3000 innocent people (by muslims) on 9/11

This is more than enough loss of life on my home soil at the hands of muslims to substantiate my position that muslims can and will follow the directives in their Koran and kill here at home.

4) Because the nature of my business involves firearms and shooting firearms in an enclosed environment, my patrons are not comfortable being around muslims who align themselves with a religion that clearly commands hate, murder, and violence against all non muslims…..

5) My range rents and sells guns to my patrons. Why would I want to rent or sell a gun and hand ammunition to someone who aligns himself with a religion that commands him to kill me?

6) * Muslims, who belong to and, or, support ISIS, are threatening to kill innocent Americans.

* Muslims, who belong to or support AL Qaeda, are threatening to kill innocent Americans.

* Muslims who belong to or support HAMAS are threatening to kill innocent Americans….

7) I not only have the right to refuse service but a RESPONSIBILITY to provide a safe environment for people to shoot and train on firearms. I can and have turned people away if I sense they are under the influence of alcohol or mind altering drugs. I have a federal firearms license…

The ATF informed us when we received the license that if we feel any reason for concern about selling someone a firearm, even sense that something is not right about an individual, or we are concerned about that persons mental state, even if they pass a background check, we do not have to sell that person a gun.

In other words, a federal agency has given us this kind of discretion for service based on the nature of the business. I can and have turned people away if I sense an issue with their mental state. So… it’s difficult to imagine how the DOJ could have issues with this when ATF gave us this discretion.

8) I have no way of looking at Islam other than as a theocracy, not a religion. Islam is undoubtedly the union of political, legal, and religious ideologies. In other words law, religion and state are forged together to form what Muslims refer to as “The Nation of Islam.” Once again it is given the sovereign qualities of a nation with clerics in the governing body and Sharia law all in one. This is a Theocracy, not a religion.

The US Constitution does not protect a theocracy. The 1st Amendment is very specific about protecting the rights of individuals from the government, as it concerns the practice of religions, not theocracies. It clearly differentiates between government and religion. Again protecting the individual’s religious beliefs and practices from (the state) government. In Islam religion and state are one.

We are a Nation governed by laws, or the law of the land the U.S. Constitution. We are not a Nation that is governed by religion, politicians or clerics.

How then, can anyone say that, the practice of Islam is protected by the U.S. Constitution?

The muslim brotherhood has a documented plan for the destruction of America from within, discovered by our own government during a raid of MB operatives in America. In addition, I am very cognizant of the civilization jihad under way in my country by American muslims. In a number of states Muslims, through our legal system, are trying to force us to accept Sharia Law over Constitutional law. I do not wish to do business with people who stand against the Constitution and are fighting to replace it.

9) Islam allows Muslims to kill their own children, (honor killing) if the behavior of those children embarrasses or dishonors the family name. ( did you know that dating outside of the faith is justification for murdering their daughters and this has already occurred on American soil?) Why would I want people (who believe it’s okay to murder their own children), be in the presence of other children? My patrons often bring their kids to the range to teach them to shoot. I am responsible for providing a safe environment for those children to learn gun safety and shooting sports.

10) In the 14 hundred year history of Islam, muslims have murdered over 270 million people. Not all muslims are terrorists, but almost all terrorists in the world right now are muslim. Since you can’t determine by visual assessment, which ones will kill you and which ones will not, I am going to go with the line of thought that ANY HUMAN BEING who would either knowingly or unknowingly support a “religion” that commands the murder of all people who refuse to submit or convert to that religion, is not someone I want to know or do business with. I hold adults accountable for the religion they align themselves with.

In summary, I not only have the right, but a responsibility to provide a safe environment for my customers. I do not believe my decision is religious discrimination because I do not classify islam as a religion.. It is a theocracy/terrorist organization that hides behind the mask of religion in order to achieve its mission of world domination.

People who shoot at my range come from all religious backgrounds… some are atheists… I do not care about their religious beliefs. I care about the safety of my customers who come to shoot here….

I will do whatever is necessary to provide a safe environment for my customers, even at the cost of the increased threats and legal problems this decision will likely provoke.

Frenchman Probed for Telling TV He Might Kill Jews

Tuesday, September 30th, 2014

French police have opened a criminal investigation against a young man who made anti-Semitic statements and suggested in a televised interview that Jews should be killed.

Yves Jannier, the prosecutor of the Pontoise region north of Paris, ordered the probe Monday following the airing last week by the France 2 channel of an interview with a young man about the Jews of the nearby Parisian suburb of Sarcelles, Le Parisien reported Monday.

The young man, who was not named, is seen in the interview while standing with friends on the street and answering the questions posed by a female journalist for France 2. “What they are doing over there in Palestine, we are doing here to the Jews. And if we get real angry, we might just kill them,” the man said.

The interview was part of a 46-minute special program on the Jewish community of Sarcelles, a poor suburb where 60,000 Jews live amidst a heavily-Muslim population.

“If I get angry, I will light up all of them, all the Jews,” said the young man.

He is suspected of justifying a crime and “incitement to hate and violence” against an ethnic group, Le Parisien reported.

On July 20, riot police prevented approximately 150 participants of an unauthorized protest rally against Israel’s actions in Gaza from reaching the main synagogue of Sarcelles. Some rioters then burned one store and smashed the windows of another seven shops. A nearby synagogue was hit by firebombs.

Last week, the Correctional Tribunal of Strasbourg in eastern France sentenced a woman to three months in jail for insulting a Jew she saw on a bus. The woman called the man “dirty Jew,” removed his kippa and assaulted the bus driver after he tried to remove her from the vehicle, according to the news website 20min.ch. The woman is Muslim and was drunk when she engaged the victim, according to the report.

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.”

Muslims Say ISIS Has ‘Nothing To Do With Islam’

Wednesday, September 17th, 2014

From one end of the world to the other, Muslims deny that ISIS – the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria terrorist organization – has any real connection to Islam.

Including some Muslim groups that one might consider radical at best.

A spokesperson for the intelligence agency of the Free Syrian Army, itself composed of Muslims, told reporters that ISIS sleeper cells have embedded themselves close to Israel’s northern border. They try to ingratiate themselves with the locals, offering food or financial aid, but they don’t find many takers.

Why bother with small villages like Sahem Al-Jawlan and Hayt, near the Syrian-Jordan border? Because ISIS wants to control as large a swathe of territory as possible. But according to the FSA spokesperson, “We are against them wholeheartedly. They have nothing to do with Islam, which they merely use as a cover.”

Another Muslim who wholeheartedly denies that ISIS has any connection to Islam is Yosef Abobaker, Steven Sotloff’s former guide in Syria.

Abobaker was the fixer who took Sotloff into the country, and was captured together with the Israeli American journalist by ISIS terrorists. However, unlike Sotloff, he was later freed because he had once fought together with Syrian opposition forces against President Bashar al-Assad.

In an interview with CNN published Tuesday, Abobaker told the story of their relationship and said he had done his best to save Sotloff, adding that he expected U.S. officials to question him following the journalist’s death. “They can find me. It’s easy. But no, nobody tried to contact me,” he remarked.

At least one border guard on the Syrian-Turkish border had been paid as an informant by ISIS, he said, and notified the terror group the minute they crossed the border. His captors had accents from Morocco, Libya and Algeria, he noticed. After 15 days, he was let go, but Sotloff was held and eventually moved twice before he was beheaded by an ISIS terrorist with a British accent.

“I send a message to the world to say it’s not really Islam,” said Abobaker. “They are liars. I say that to all the people. They are not Muslims.”

Two the leading voices in the Muslim world denounced the persecution of Christians in Iraq by ISIS. One was Iyad Ameen Madani, secretary-general for the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, which represents 57 countries and 1.4 billion Muslims. Madani said bluntly that ISIS fighters “have nothing to do with Islam and its principles that call for justice, kindness, fairness, freedom of faith and coexistence.”  The other was Turkey’s top cleric and technically the spiritual successor to the caliphate under the Ottoman Empire. Mehmet Gormez said that Muslims should not be hostile towards “people with different views, values and beliefs, and regard them as enemies… an inability to peacefully sustain other faiths and cultures heralds the collapse of a civilization,” he told Reuters in an interview.

One hundred Sunni and Shi’ite religious leaders from the UK also denounced the group, saying in a video they produced they had “come together to emphasize the importance of unity in the UK and to decree ISIS as an illegitimate, vicious group who do not represent Islam in any way.”

The largely apolitical Muhammadiyah group, with 29 million members, also came out against ISIS. Secretary Abdul Mu’ti said, “.. This [group] is not in the context of religion. We all need to question the group’s goals. Don’t just follow radicals who tried to win their own wars in other countries; we will be the ones to suffer losses.”

Even CAIR – the Council on American-Islamic Relations – the largest Muslim group in the United States (which is not particularly moderate) has called ISIS “un-Islamic and morally repugnant.”

Police Finally Arrest Muslim for Provocation on Temple Mount

Sunday, September 14th, 2014

Police arrested a Muslim on Sunday for trying to stir up unrest on the Tempe Mount where a group of Jews was visiting.

A riot erupted after calls of incitement by the Arab.

Another Muslim was detained earlier in the day for similar reasons.

Police also arrested a Jew for incitement, of a different form – he dared to pray on the holy site. That kind of “incitement” is reserved for Muslims, who pray for the destruction of Jews among other blessings requested from Allah.

The Supreme Court has questioned whether the discrimination against prayers by Jews, judiciously enforced by the police, is legal, but no one has yet been able to bring the issue for the judges to decide.

It is obvious why Muslims don’t want Jews to pray on the Temple Mount, believing perhaps that God will pay more attention to Jewish prayers said there instead of elsewhere, such as in Psalms 92, verses 7-8:

“A boorish man does not know; neither does a fool understand this. When the wicked flourish like grass, and all workers of violence blossom, only to be destroyed to eternity.”
