Anti-Semitic Thugs Attacks Jewish Couple in New York City

Tuesday, August 26th, 2014

New York Police and its Hate Crime unit are investigating a Monday evening attack by pro-Arab hoodlums for peace who peacefully harassed and assaulted a young Jewish  couple on New York City’s Upper East Side.

Two cars and several motorcycles were involved in the gang-up on the couple until the attackers fled the scene in a car that was flying Palestinian Authority flags, according to The New York Post.

The gang yelled “anti-Semitic statements’ at the woman and her 27-year-old husband, who was wearing a kippa.

The violence started when the attackers hurled a water bottle at the woman, hitting her. He came to her defense, and the punks punched him, slightly cutting one ear but enough that required medical care.

Anti-Israeli protesters in a London suburb last week also used the PA flag to stir up an incident by parading in an “unemployment protest” outside a kosher delicatessen,  prompting one of the Jewish customers to try to settle the score.

British police arrested him for assault.

The New York officers in blue still are looking for the gang that attacked the Jewish couple, in the heart of an area with a high Jewish population.

It is just another one of hundreds of anti-Semitic incidents in the United States that are considered as “isolated” by bleeding heart, consensus-seeking Jewish leaders and the Commission of Political Correctness for Radical Islam and Peace for Palestine without Israel.

British Police Arrest Jew for Fighting PA Flag Wavers at Kosher Deli

Sunday, August 24th, 2014

Police in Greater London arrested a Jew last week for scuffling with more than dozen demonstrators waving a Palestinian Authority flag and chanting anti-Semitic remarks outside a Jewish deli.

No one was injured in the incident at Flax’s Kosher Deli in the Borough of Bushey Heath, on the outskirts of London.

The only one who was arrested was the 47-year-old Jew, who along with other deli customers barged out of the store to confront the protesters.

Jewish man has been arrested in Bushey Heath after a fight involving socialists who produced Palestinian flags as they marched past a kosher deli.

Police investigators asserted that “no evidence was found that any race or religious hate crimes had occurred,” according to Britain’s JewishNews online website, but witnesses’ remarks indicate that the police investigation was not very thorough.

Among the “non-hate” remarks were, “Jews aren’t safe – we’re coming to get you.”

The demonstration was ostensibly a “March for Jobs” protest, with Palestinian Authority flags. The connection between unemployment and waving the PA flag outside a Jewish deli is not clear, unless the anti-Zionists were demanding that they work in the Kosher deli, assuming they understand Jewish dietary laws.

“That flag, in this area, with all that’s going on in the world in Gaza, it was bound to cause trouble.” said deli manager Mitchell Swillman. “ It escalated as they made their way down to Bushey village. From what I understand these guys were being quite anti-Semitic.”

 

The conclusion by police that there was not hate speech may explain why out of 240 anti-Semitic incidents registered last month, only 20 of them were followed up by an investigation or arrests.

London’s Community Security Trust (CST) blog stated, “The actual data is bad enough, but cannot convey the mood of the Jewish community, with many people telling us that they have never felt so bad, have been under such pressure, nor worried so much about what the future may hold.”

The Jews are worried. They sit and worry and come up with reasons why not to move to Israel.

Donna Rachel Edmunds, a councillor for Lewes District Council and founder and editor of UKIPDaily.com, wrote on her Breitbart.com, “I’ve lived my life entirely in the south east of England… As a libertarian, I’m proud to call thinkers such as Smith and Hume my fellow countrymen….

“I’ve never really thought of myself as being is an immigrant although technically I am – albeit second generation….Another label I’ve never meaningfully attached to myself is ‘Jewish’, although, again technically, I am.

“Yet I’ve never stepped foot inside a synagogue. I think I once took part in a Passover meal when I was very young, but other than that my mother made no real effort to educate my sister or myself on our Jewish roots. Our only tangible link to our maternal heritage is through soup: chicken noodle when we’re feeling ill; borscht when we want something filling….

“So I was as surprised as anyone when I found myself uttering six loaded words recently. And by ‘recently’ I don’t mean once, dropped into a passing conversation. I mean at least a dozen times, in a dozen such conversations over the past few weeks. Those words were “Maybe we should move to Israel….

“Not, primarily, because I worry about the rise in anti-Semitic attacks affecting me personally. As a church-going Christian I wear a cross on a necklace, and am more often assumed to be Spanish, if anything, so I doubt I would be targeted on the street….

“The reason that I’m seriously considering a move to Israel in the next few years is because I’m developing a strong suspicion that Israel is going to be one of the safest countries on the planet to live in over the next few decades….

Exiled Jordanian Palestinian Activist Tweets Support for Israel, Anger at Hamas

Tuesday, August 12th, 2014

A Jordanian Palestinian Arab writer and political activist exiled to the UK since 2010 has taken to the Twitter social networking site to express his support for Israel in its fight to end the terror from Hamas.

Mudar Zahran tweeted “in the name of the Jordanian Opposition of Collation” on Tuesday, calling Israel a “friendly nation” and saying that he saw “hope for a global partnership against Hamas.”

Mudar Zahran ‏@Mudar_Zahran
In the name of the Jordanian Opposition of Collation, We identify Israel as a friendly nation and hope for a global partnership against Hamas

Zahran, who said he is “currently traveling in the West Bank for my people at this time of need,” added in a second tweet that he supports Israel’s Operation Protective Edge.

Mudar Zahran ‏@Mudar_Zahran
In the name of the Jordanian Opposition of Collation, We support Israel’s operations against Hamas, and we hope it brings freedom to Gazans

Zahran added, “I support Israel at 500%, and I will say it a million times if I have to, Hamas is a terrorist organization…”

‘Free Palestine!’ Gang Attacks Jewish School Children on Bus in Sydney

Thursday, August 7th, 2014

As new reports of anti-Semitism continue to flood the media, an especially troubling attack in Sydney, Australia has made headlines around the world.

A group of Jewish children and their parents were traumatized Wednesday by an attack by a gang of eight anti-Semitic teens who boarded a government school bus.

Dozens of the children were trapped in the school bus when the gang started hurling anti-Semitic threats and other verbal abuse at the children on Wednesday.

As the bus traveled towards the Sydney suburb of Bondi, drunken gang members yelled, “Kill the Jews,” and “Free Palestine,” “Palestine, Palestine, You’ve taken over our country, what do you want with our country,” and “Heil Hitler.”

The children, ages five to 12, were all from Jewish schools in Sydney’s eastern suburbs – Mount Sinai College, Emanuel School and Moriah College. They were not physically harmed but all were badly traumatized.

The bus is not open to members of the public, officials said. Parents picked up their children from Rose Bay and gave statements to police. But the bus driver cursed at a parent who questioned why he allowed the gang members to board in the first place.

Jackie Blackburn, the parent who questioned the driver, spoke with several members of the media. She told the Daily Mail Australia, “He was very rude to me, he swore at me and he wouldn’t give me any information. I said: ‘Mate, the police are onto you, they are all over the roads.’ He told me to f— off.’ “ The same gang had apparently targeted an earlier bus traveling from the same three Jewish schools, Blackburn said, and had kicked at the door, but were not allowed to board.

Blackburn told Channel 9, that her eldest daughter, age 12, was distraught and said the gang members were threatening to slit the children’s throats. The group knocked the phone out of her daughter’s hand, she said, but a friend found it and called her.

She raced to the scene, she said, and was “actually chasing the bus, I was just saying to the kids, ‘Where are you? Where are you?’”

The offenders got off the bus on Bronte Road at Bondi Junction, police said; they were identified after officers reviewed the CCTV footage on the bus.

Victor Dominello, Minister for Citizenship and Communities, made it clear government officials would pursue the case. “The people of NSW will never excuse it,” he said. “We are lucky to live in one of the most harmonious multicultural societies in the world but we must never be complacent. It is incumbent upon all citizens to expose those whose actions are based on racial hatred and who seek to import overseas conflict onto our streets.”

Five of the teens, ages 15 to 17, were arrested by New South Wales state police early Thursday and questioned in connection with the attack. A sixth is still being sought, police said.

The five were later released into their parents’ custody without being charged, pending further investigation, according to Associated Press.

The youths were “too drunk to be interviewed at the time,” according to police superintendent Jason Box, the Eastern Suburbs local area commander, who spoke with The Sydney Morning Herald.

“I’ve been informed that some of the six juveniles had bus passes and were in partial school uniform and I can only assume that the bus driver believed that they were school children due to their age and what they were wearing and that bus passes were produced,” Box told local media.

Egypt Proposes Cease Fire Extension to 120 Hours

Wednesday, August 6th, 2014

Egypt has proposed that Israel and representatives of the various Palestinian Arab factions extend the current 72-hour cease fire to 120 hours.

The proposal, suggested to each side in indirect talks, was announced Wednesday on Lebanon’s Al Mayadeen TV.

There is no word on whether the Egyptian proposal was accepted by either side.

White House Statement, Finally, on Terror Kidnapping

Wednesday, June 18th, 2014

The White House has finally managed to ‘catch up’ on the terrorist kidnapping of three Israeli teens last week — one of whom was also an American citizen.

In a tepid statement posted on the Twitter social networking site, President Barack Obama (at least it appears to have been written by or for the president) said, “Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of 3 Israeli teens who were kidnapped last week. May they be reunited with their sons soon.”

But although the statement was clearly written to be as neutral as possible, a quick glance at the comments posted in response makes it obvious the president is ‘damned if he does, and damned if he doesn’t.’

A flurry of condemnations followed the statement, including screams of protest about ‘prayers’ (‘Can we leave prayer out of this please. You’re the White House.”) Others demanded to know “What about Palestinian kids???”
