UK Police Detain Man for Anti-Semitic Verbal Attack

Tuesday, April 12th, 2016

British police have arrested an unnamed suspect after he allegedly shouted at two Chassidic teenagers in the northern London neighborhood of Stamford Hill Sunday night.

The man, age 23, allegedly approached the 14 and 17-year-olds and yelled, “F**king Jews. Kill the Jews!”

He also allegedly shouted “Allahu Akbar!” – Arabic for “God is Great” – and which is generally declared these days prior to launching an attack for “jihad” or “holy war.”

The teens called the Shomrim Jewish civil guard organization, whose members immediately contacted police.

The assailant was reportedly still in the area at the time, shouting anti-Semitic verbal abuse to other pedestrians and community members, Jewish News Online reported.

He was arrested early Monday morning by Hackney police officers on suspicion of racially aggravated public order offenses.

“Officers arrested a 23-year-old man on suspicion of racially aggravated public order offenses. He remains in custody at an east London police station,” a Metropolitan police spokesperson confirmed.

A possible third Jewish victim may also have been present at the time, the news site reported.

“Antisemitism and all types of hate crime is unacceptable. I urge victims and witnesses to report such incidents immediately,” Chaim Hochhauser, Stamford Hill Shomrim supervisor told the Jewish Chronicle.

“Such incidents should never be accepted as the norm, no matter how regular these incidents sadly happen.”

Homeless New Yorker Arrested for Slashing Israeli Tourist

Tuesday, April 12th, 2016

A 24-year-old homeless man with a prior record of 16 arrests has been nabbed for slashing an Israeli tourist, 55-year-old Abraham Fekete, at a Greenwich Village subway station last week.

Marvin Tayor is accused of stabbing Fekete in the Bleeker Street No. 6 subway station. He was turned in by a Tipster who called police, according to the NY Daily News.

Fekete, an Orthodox Jew who was in the city visiting friends, had gotten lost in the subway system. He fell asleep on a bench, not realizing how unsafe that can be in a city like New York. Fekete speaks only Yiddish.

He awakened to find Taylor standing over him with a knife, demanding money at 3:30 am Friday, police said. The attacker slashed the visitor from Jerusalem in the face, neck, arms and hands as Fekete fought with Taylor, who then fled with an undetermined amount of cash.

Taylor was taken into custody at around 11:30 pm Sunday night and charged with robbery, assault and criminal possession of a weapon, NYPD sources told the NY Post.

Police caught the stabber on a Nolita subway platform after receiving a call from the Tipster who apparently knows the attacker. Taylor was tracked down and arrested near Fordham University in the Bronx.

One of the occupants of the vehicle, a 17-year-old, had a very sharpened knife on his person.

While driving the arrested occupants to the police station, the same police unit noticed another suspicious vehicle on the road, pulling it over, inside they found yet another Palestinian Authority Arab with a fake Israeli ID trying to get into Jerusalem.

Altogether, 9 Palestinian Authority Arabs from the Hebron region were arrested, including 3 minors. Two 2 Israeli-Arabs from southern Israel, presumably Bedouins, who were helping sneak them into Jerusalem were also arrested.

French Jew Arrives as Paris Jihadist, Yells ‘Allahu Akbar!’ at Synagogue on Purim

Wednesday, March 30th, 2016

Jews in Paris have been under a lot of stress over the past couple of years.

A 40-year-old Jewish man in Europe decided to lighten things up for Purim at a Paris synagogue last week, so he arrived for the Megillah reading dressed as a jihadist, yelling “Allahu Akbar!”

He was really authentic, right down to the flowing robes, beard and fake AK-47 Kalashnikov assault rifle.

The guards protecting the southeastern Paris house of worship in Vincennes were, suffice to say, shocked. Police sources told media it definitely created “a certain emotion” among the soldiers.

The incident took place at a Chabad synagogue towards the end of Purim last Thursday night.

Many Jews consider it a mitzvah (commandment) on Purim to drink to the point of no longer knowing the difference between King Ahashuerus and Haman.

The man told Le Parisien he did it to “lighten the mood.” He later admitted that perhaps he made “a big mistake.” The synagogue is located in the same community where four Jews were shot last year.

The shock passed once some of the congregants recognized the “jihadist” dressed in the flowing Arabic robes.

However, the ersatz “jihadist” was ordered to pay a visit to the police precinct on Friday.

One 50-year-old civilian was taken to the hospital with gunshot wounds. He is seriously wounded.

The car matched the description of the vehicle that had carried out an attack just half an hour earlier in the Jerusalem neighborhood of Ramot.

Passengers on the bus in Ramot were told to “duck” and to lay down on the floor” when gunshots slammed into a bus earlier in the morning.

One civilian in a nearby car managed to stop and get a shot off at the terrorists.

A scarf identified with an extremist Islamic movement was found in the car that was used by terrorists in the shooting attack on Hatsankhanim Street in Jerusalem.

Krakow Gas Workers Expose Bones Digging at Plaszów Concentration Camp

Wednesday, March 2nd, 2016

Polish gas company workers exposed bones while digging at the site of the Nazi Plaszów concentration camp and Jewish cemetery. Only a single stone marker indicates the site of the cemetery.

Police were alerted to the incident by a local Jewish community leader who received a tip from an anonymous caller. Likewise, Rabbi Eliezer Gurary, Rabbi of Kraków and the city’s Chabad-Lubavitch emissary was anonymously notified — belatedly — on Wednesday about the find.

The rabbi told JewishPress.com in a statement, “The concentration camp was built upon a Jewish cemetery, therefore there’s a great chance that these are human Jewish bones.” Gurary added that he intends to turn to the local authorities “in order to take part at the investigation and to act in order to find a solution if they are indeed human bones.”

The gas company was doing pipeline maintenance work at the time the bones were discovered, according to a report in Newsday.

Kraków Police spokeswoman Mariusz Ciarka told reporters Tuesday the bones were sent for examination to a forensic lab “to determine if they are human.”

The Plaszów concentration camp was originally intended to be a forced labor camp. It was built on the grounds of two Jewish cemeteries and populated with prisoners during the liquidation of the Kraków Ghetto, which took place on 13–14 March 1943.
