Good Jewish Boy from Israel Tries to Join the ISIS

Tuesday, September 1st, 2015

A Foreign Ministry statement Tuesday that an Israeli Jew has been returned home after trying to join the Islamic State (ISIS) leaves too many questions unanswered.

The facts that are known are simple: Turkish officials, despite far from loving relations with Israel, helped nab the 21-year-old man and return him home.

The family of the unidentified youth called the Foreign Ministry last week after their son flew to Crete as a stopover before traveling to Syria, where he would have violated Israeli law by setting foot in the territory of a declared enemy state.

That’s it. Happy ending, except perhaps for the youth.

As for Turkey, it is not surprising that it cooperated because it hates the ISIS much more than it hates Israel.

And now for the unanswered questions:

Is this young man a psychiatric case? Or does he simply live in a movie, albeit a horror film?

Did the ISIS have contact with him? Did the man promise to convert to Islam? Or has he? Did the ISIS plan to show him off as a Jew having found Allah?

Did he want to chop off peoples’ heads? Was he looking for sex slaves?

Did the 21-year-old man serve in the IDF? Is he angry at Israel as an “occupier?

Foreign Ministry spokesman told The Jewish Press Tuesday:

There is nothing to add to what we already have stated.

Our heartfelt concern goes out to the youth’s family, and may no other Jewish family know such sorrow.

3 Americans, 1 UK Man Subdue Terrorist on Train to Paris

Saturday, August 22nd, 2015

Three U.S. citizens and a British man subdued an armed terrorist who boarded a high-speed train from Amsterdam to Paris Friday night and then opened fire at passengers.

The 26-year-old gunman, identified by local media as Ayoub El-Qahzzani, is allegedly of Moroccan origin, according to Alliance Police Union official Sliman Hamzi, who spoke with French television station i-Tele.

El-Qahzzani lived in the southern Spanish city of Algeciras, according to the Associated Press, and was a member at a mosque under surveillance there. He moved to France in 2014 after visiting Syria.

According to a report by the British Telegraph quoting the La Voix due Nord newspaper, the gunman was linked to a jihadist group which attacked Belgian anti-terrorist police in January in Verviers, near Liege, and were shot dead. “It appears that he had been identified as a potential security threat by the Spanish authorities who had alerted French authorities and had asked them for further information about him,” the Telegraph reported.

U.S. Air Force serviceman Spencer Stone was released late Saturday from hospital after being stabbed. A second serviceman, Alek Skarlatos, served recently in the Afghanistan in the National Guard. The third, Anthony Sadler, is studying physical therapy in Sacramento.

The men told reporters they heard a gunshot and breaking glass, then saw a train employee racing down the aisle, followed by a gunman with an AK-47 assault rifle.

One of the Americans tackled the attacker while a second wrestled away the rifle and a handgun. The attacker pulled a box cutter and stabbed the man who had taken him down, until he was beaten unconscious by the three of them.

A British business consultant, Chris Norman, helped subdue the gunman and keep him held down after he was tackled. Stone then helped another passenger who had been shot in the throat.

Passengers on the train eventually arrived at their destination early Saturday, several hours later than scheduled.

It is easy to board a high-speed train in Europe with a weapon and in most places one can avoid metal detectors, the necessity for showing a passport or other identity papers, and even avoid a bag search.

Major rail stations are patrolled by armed soldiers, but if one does not appear suspicious in any way, and avoids a search, a terrorist can board a train with no problem.

Anti-Jihadists Are ‘Dirty Jewish Zionist Thugs” Says US University Professor

Thursday, August 13th, 2015

A university professor in Philadelphia this week called anti-Jihad activists Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer “dirty Jewish Zionist thugs.”

Kaukab Siddique, an associate professor of English at Lincoln University, told the Philadelphia Inquirer in an interview on Monday, “I would say it again.”

Siddique slammed Geller for activities carried out by the group she heads with Spencer, the American Freedom Defense Initiative. The group has sponsored the recent controversial “Draw Mohammed” cartoon contests – one of which drew terrorist gunfire in Texas from an irate Muslim jihadist.

“She did the worst, other than killing us,” Siddique said. By violating what is “most sacred to us, we can talk about her, that she is Jewish and she is white and she’s a supremacist and she is doing this to us,’ he said.

Siddique has also publicly expressed doubt about the truth of the Holocaust, referring in speeches to the work of Holocaust denier David Irving who has said there is no evidence that Jews were murdered in gas chambers.

“I have read things from both sides and therefore I think that for any study of the Holocaust, we need to know what the critics say,” Siddique said. “Were there ovens?. . . If you study the pictures of Auschwitz, there are no ovens there.”

Spencer, who also heads “Jihad Watch,” responded in an email commentary Wednesday, “Siddique calls our defense of free speech ‘cultural genocide’ when in fact, Shari’a (Islamic law) is cultural genocide. Islamic history is built upon cultural annihilations, jihad wars and enslavements.”

In response to Siddique’s odd question about the gas chambers during the Holocaust, Spencer charges, “This poisonous Holocaust denier is teaching our children. How did we get here? The silence of reasoned, the rational. The silence of everyone who stood silent when they came after us, fearing they’d be labeled ‘Islamophobes’ and ‘racists’ by Jew-haters and radicals…

“Worst of all, back in May, when ISIS first issued its fatwa (edict) calling for me to be murdered, Siddique wrote on Facebook:

“Very cleverly, the corporate media are trying to present the Texas situation as ISIS vs. Geller. The Prophet Muhammmad [sic], pbuh, (ed: “peace be upon him”) is the , [sic] leader of the ENTIRE UMMAH, not just of ISIS. Two of ISIS gave their lives for the honor of the Prophet, pbuh. We can’t do that, but the law of this land gives us the right to speak out. ISNA, ICNA and CAIR think you can simply ignore blasphemy.  Millions embraced Islam because of Malcolm. (ed: Malcolm X) Imagine what America’s oppressed people think of us when we don’t speak even when our greatest sanctity is violated? Muslims, we are waiting for Allah’s wrath to descend on us.”

Siddique did not condemn ISIS, Spencer pointed out. “He says that ISIS is part of the umma, in arguing that the entire umma should be trying to kill me, not just ISIS. Siddique is, like ISIS, trying to enforce Shari’a blasphemy laws by force, trying to intimidate the West into silence in the face of the jihad threat.”

Other past Facebook postings have included such gems as: “Know the Jews and you’ll know your enemy” and references to renowned Harvard Law School Professor Alan Dershowitz as “that Zionist Jewish dog Derschowitz (sic).”

In his interview with the Philadelphia Inquirer, Siddique also slammed the U.S. military, saying it had “fallen below Hitler” in treatment of prisoners at Guantanamo Bay and in Iraq.

But in the classroom Siddique claimed, “My policy with students is to help them to think, not tell them what to think.”

The professor, age 72 and a native of Pakistan, teaches at a mosque and community center in Baltimore, where he lives with his wife, outside of the university. He also publishes an Islamic magazine.

Al Asqa Mosque Preacher: Jews Train Doctors to Spread Diseases

Monday, August 3rd, 2015

To paraphrase another hate-filled radical Muslim preacher, Israel’s masochistic side teaches Islamists to spread the disease of hatred.

Sheikh Khaled Al-Mughrabi teaches Islam twice a week in the Al-Aqsa Mosque on the Temple Mount, where Israel has ignored, at least publicly, the increasing takeover by supporters of radical Islamic ideology.

His most recently class taught Muslims that Jews own 95% of the pharmaceutical industry and train doctors to create new diseases so they can spread illness and make more money.

Al-Mughrabi, or his script writer, must be given credit for a creative and healthy – make that unhealthy – imagination.

Palestinian Media Watch translated and published al-Mughrabi’s rant that was telecast on the Al-Msjed Al Aqsa channel last Friday:

Many diseases were created in labs – viruses created by doctors who were bought, trained and taught by the Rothschild family, the Freemasons, the Zionists, or the Jews to create and spread disease so they will be able to sell medicine for it.

According to what is told about the Rothschild family, they own more than half of the world’s wealth… There are approximately 950,000 billion dollars in the world. Out of this amount, 500,000 billion dollars belong to the Rothschild family. The Rothschild family owns the World Bank.

They own about 95% of the world’s pharmaceutical industry. Why do I mention the pharmaceutical industry? Many diseases were created in labs…to create and spread disease so they will be able to sell medicine for it. More than 95% of the pharmaceutical industry and the pharmaceutical trade are owned by the Children of Israel.”

Israeli police finally have had enough of al-Mughrabi and arrested him on Sunday for disseminating hate, according to the Palestinian Authority’s Quds Press, which reported that he” gives religious lessons to children at the mosque.”

British PM Cameron Wins Kudos for Fighting Anti-Semitism

Tuesday, July 21st, 2015

British Prime Minister David Cameron is winning international kudos for his fight against anti-Semitism, with World Jewish Congress (WJC) President Ronald S. Lauder speaking out to praise the UK leader for his new proposal to fight Islamic extremism.

“We congratulate Prime Minister Cameron for his strong stand against anti-Semitism and Muslim fanaticism. The resurgence of anti-Semitism and the spread of Islamic extremism across Europe is particularly troubling and Mr. Cameron’s plan takes a vital step toward combating these destructive forces,” said Lauder in a statement hailing the UK leader for the 5-year plan to fight homegrown terrorism he unveiled Monday in a speech in Birmingham.

“You don’t have to support violence to subscribe to certain intolerant ideas which create a climate in which extremists can flourish,” Cameron said. He added that conspiracy theories of a Jewish malevolent power or any Western plan to deliberately humiliate Muslims need to be challenged.

Lauder urged other European leaders to follow the Prime Minister’s lead, noting: “Once again, we are seeing the rebirth of classic anti-Semitic conspiracy mongering targeting Jews across Europe – and it is vital that Europe act now before the situation deteriorates.”

ISIS Tweets Home Address of Pamela Geller

Sunday, June 14th, 2015

A tweet from a man in Britain believed to be a senior member of the Islamic State (ISIS) posted the home address of anti-radical Islam activist Pamela Geller, who is Jewish. The Jewish Press.com is not re-posting the information even though we have no ISIS readers, as far as we know.

She was targeted for beheading in a plot that was smashed two weeks ago when Boston policemen arrested two men who had planned to decapitate her but then decided to make policemen their first victims because they were “easier targets.”

The Twitter account “#GoForth,” from which the tweet was sent and which now has been suspended revealed Geller’s address and apartment number in New York City.

Geller rose to be U.S. Public Enemy No. 1 for the ISIS after she staged a contest in Texas in May for drawings of the Prophet Mohammed.

She may soon have company in the form of New Hampshire resident and ex-marine Jerry DeLemus, who plans another “draw Mohammed” event in August.

He said last week:

I’m not worried about taking a risk. It’s more important to defend our way of life in this country, our constitutional rights, for everybody.

DeLemus told Maine’s WMTW:

I guarantee if there weren’t Muslims actually in this country actively trying to kill people for drawing pictures of Mohammad, I’d never have an art contest to draw Muhammad.

I’m not forcing anyone to come. That’s Sharia law. I’m sure they’ll know with the news media coverage there’s a risk involved.

He declared that he won’t allow offensive drawing and added:

It’s a political statement that we’re America, we’re free. And we can do things that offend one another.

As a Christian, they do all kinds of ugly things about my faith. But I’ve never wanted to kill someone about it. So I’m hoping it comes out peaceful. But I just want the dialog to be had.

Plenty of security will be on hand, and Geller now walks around with personal bodyguards because of death threats.

One of the suspects in the plot to behead Geller was killed when he pulled out an 8-inch military knife as he approached policemen who were preparing to arrest him for questioning.

Two others were charged on Friday for the plot. David Wright was arrested shortly after his co-conspirator Usaamah Rahim was killed, and the third suspect is Nicholas Rovinski, who was arrested on Thursday. He also goes under the name Amriki aka Nuh al Andalusi.

“Beginning at a date unknown but no later than May 2015, Wright, Rovinski and Rahim conspired to commit attacks and kill persons inside the United States, which they believed would support ISIL’s objectives,” according to a Dept. of Justice statement.

Rovinski and Wright face a maximum prison sentence of 15 years for conspiring to support the Islamic State.

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.”
