Islamic Terror in Europe Turning Israel into West’s Best Friend

Friday, November 27th, 2015

The intensified war against the Islamic State (ISIS) has propelled Israel into the West’s best friend.

Russian president Vladimir Putin said Thursday that Israel and Moscow are exchanging intelligence information and that “relations between our countries are at high level.”

He added:

We will continue to maintain contacts with the Israeli leadership to establish a just, comprehensive and lasting peace in the Middle East, to share information on the anti-terrorism track.

In September, we held intense and very fruitful talks together with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. We agreed to deepen our cooperation in the spheres of industry, high-tech and agriculture.

The JewishPress.com reported here earlier this week that Israel, and not France as originally thought, provided Germany with precise intelligence information that foiled planned massive terrorist attacks at a soccer game, where Chancellor Angela Merkel was attending, and at a train station.

The massacres in Paris have sent European governments into a panic, and no one even thinks of BDS when it comes to seeking out Israeli intelligence, which is clued in more than Western countries that have pretended that the Muslim invasion of the continent has not included a large number of  terrorist cells..

IDF Chief of Staff Gadi Eisenkot visited Brussels this week for secret meetings with Belgian security officials, Maariv reported Friday.

He also met with senior American military officials.

 

Fear of Muslim Hate Scaring US Jewish Leaders from Pro-Israel Rallies

Sunday, November 22nd, 2015

In a growing number of U.S. towns, Jews whose hearts ache over the terror faced by Israel and who are desperate to express their support, are starting to fear Arab hatred and the terror of radical Islam even more.

JewishPress.com has been asked to tell this story by an American rabbi who provided the information on condition that all identifying details be omitted “for the safety of those involved.” In particular, he requested that the location of the congregations involved be “blurred,” as he put it, in order “not to put Jews at risk.”

How scary is that?

“One of my congregants spoke to a friend whose son lives in a major Midwestern city where they had an Israel rally. They were greatly outnumbered by Palestinians,” he said. “That woman’s son called it a big disaster because it turned out to be great PR for the Palestinians, instead of support for Israel.”

As a matter of fact, the city in question had “10,000 Muslims show up to their rally,” according to the city police estimate.

Concerned rabbis who followed up raised the following question: “Without advertisement, we have no way to let those concerned citizens express their solidarity. With advertisement, how do we prevent this kind of fiasco?”

The rabbis also receive updates and security assessments from the Department of Homeland Security, which to its credit maintains contact with countless Jewish leaders and institutions.

“Clearly, I can’t give you a simple ‘it’s safe’ or not,” wrote one DHS official to the inquiring rabbi who asked during the summer of 2014 about the wisdom of joining a solidarity march for Israel.

“But, given the current situation in Gaza, it’s my opinion if the march was widely publicized prior to holding it, I wouldn’t be comfortable at all. If the group simply shows up, marches and departs, the risk would be much lower. As you know, there’s always a risk,” he wrote, adding that if the march is publicized “during or after, you also raise risk on existing Jewish facilities from retaliatory attacks.”

And that quiet warning was officially being transmitted more than a year ago, not in Europe, the Middle East or Scandinavia, but rather in the United States!

Below is a letter received by the same rabbi, who is among those who encourage their congregations to attend demonstrations of support for Israel. Note the emphasis on safety.

Dear Rabbi X:
As you know, these are tough times for our beloved Israel.
The Friends of Israel is having a public rally this Sunday, ______ , in the afternoon at the corner of _______________.
As you also may know at many other Israel rallies, scores of confrontational Palestinians have shown up, intimidated and stolen the PR. It becomes their hate fest instead of our peaceful rally in support of Israel’s right to self defense.
Will you please send this flyer out to your email contacts, call people and urge them to attend. Please speak about the rally at Shabbat services. Put this on Facebook, tweet, etc.
This is the time for all those who love and support Israel to come together; it is our responsibility!! Please do what you can to mobilize people. Even though people may only see Palestinian suffering, which ultimately Hamas has caused, on the news, we all know Israelis are suffering and being terrorized. My own family and several other friends have terrible stories.
We have a permit and police protection. This should be the safest place to be in _________ from ________ on Sunday! Thank you in advance for your support.

Brussels Shuts Down Metro, Goes To High Alert in Fear of Terror

Sunday, November 22nd, 2015

Brussels has been placed on maximum alert due to concrete threats pointing to a strong risk of an attack “along the lines of what took place in Paris,” Prime Minister Charles Michel told a news conference on Saturday.

Numerous “high-value target” institutions in the Belgian capital are being guarded by soldiers; these include buildings belonging to the European Union and NATO, both of which are headquartered in the city.

It is not known whether Jewish institutions are among the protected, or if so, which ones are the privileged. In 2014 the city’s Jewish Museum, targeted by radical Islamist terrorists a year ago, was forced to beg the government for upgraded protection after the massacre.

Brussels was placed at the government’s maximum level four on its threat scale after a security council meeting of top ministers, police and security services held on Saturday.

The public metro was closed down and people were warned to avoid crowds due to a “serious and imminent” threat of “coordinated, multiple attacks” by terrorists.

American citizens were warned by the U.S. Embassy to “shelter in place and remain at home… If you must go out, avoid large crowds,” the embassy said in a statement Saturday on its website.

Another government situation review is slated for Sunday afternoon. But until then, the metro system is closed, and although shopping centers and smaller shops opened briefly on Saturday, by midday they too had shut their doors.

Meanwhile, suspected fugitive terrorist Salah Abdeslam, 26, has arrived home to Brussels from Paris, and fear of the Da’esh terrorist has inspired Brussels sports authorities to postpone weekend games in two professional divisions.

The Belgian Interior Minister told reporters he wants a register of everyone living in Molenbeek, a neighborhood in Brussels, since it is still not clear who is living there and who is not.

Authorities are now conducting door-to-door checks of every house in Molenbeek. Abdeslam is from that neighborhood, as was the Da’esh (ISIS) mastermind of the Paris massacre, Abdelhamid Aba’aoud, 28, who was killed in a police siege in a Paris suburb last Wednesday. The two terrorists met and bonded in prison.

Turkish Soccer Fans Chant ‘Allahu Akbar’ During Solidarity for Paris

Wednesday, November 18th, 2015

Soccer fans are not the most civilized people in the world.

Nor are Turkish Muslims.

It gets even worse when you put the two together.

Players from Greece and Turkey stopped their friendly game to stand for a one-minute tribute to the memories of those slain by Islamic State (ISIS) terrorists in Paris last and to show solidarity with France.

Thousands of fans did not like the idea.

First they booed.

Then they broke out into a chant of “Allahu Akbar,” Muslim terrorists’ favorite words when killing non-Muslims.

It is no wonder that millions of Muslims in Europe are embarrassed to show their faces in public these days.

Netanyahu to French Envoy: The Beasts Have a Name – Radical Islam

Wednesday, November 18th, 2015

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu spoke with French Ambassador Patrick Maisonnave and expressed the solidarity of the entire country with France following the latest and by far the worst terrorist attack in Paris.

He said:

The people of Israel stand with the people of France. Ambassador, this is not a figurative stance, it’s not just lip service….

It’s difficult for civilized men and women to recognize that our cities, our airways, sometimes our waterways are prowled by beasts that devour the innocent in their way. And the forces of civilization…have no option but to unite very clearly and defeat these beasts.

The beasts increasingly have a name – it is radical Islam.

The Prime Minister spoke at the Jerusalem Post Diplomatic Conference, where the newspaper’s Herb Keinon asked him if Israel would consider unilateral measures in light of the diplomatic stalemate with the Palestinian Authority.

Prime Minister Netanyahu answered that there are various ways to do so, but he declined to clarify what he meant.

Kerry Understands ‘Rationale’ for Terror Attack on Charles Hebdo

Wednesday, November 18th, 2015

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry put both feet in his mouth this time.

It took the massacre of more than 130 people in Paris Friday to cause him to philosophize that the murders were different from other terror attacks which, according to him, had a “rationale,” such as the murders of 12 people at the offices of the Charlie Hebdo satirical magazine.

The “rationale” is that since the satirical caricatures mocking the Muslim Prophet Mohammed aroused anger among Islamists, the murders were understandable. He almost said they were “legitimate” before correcting himself and settling for “rationale.”

He told CBS News from the U.S. Embassy in Paris:

There’s something different about what happened from Charlie Hebdo, and I think everybody would feel that.

There was a sort of particularized focus and perhaps even a legitimacy in terms of—not a legitimacy, but a rationale that you could attach yourself to somehow and say, ‘Okay, they’re really angry because of this and that. This Friday was absolutely indiscriminate. It wasn’t to aggrieve one particular sense of wrong. It was to terrorize people.

It is difficult to believe that Kerry really understood the implications of what he said. His comments were a kind of diplomatic incitement.

His reasoning, such as it is, means there is a rationale for a person to murder a specific victim if he has a specific reason.

In the case of the attacks on the offices of Charlie Hebdo, the terrorists did fire indiscriminately at people, but for Kerry, that doesn’t matter since all of them were working for the same magazine that gave the terrorists a “rationale” to be angry.

The Islamic State (ISIS) terrorists who bombed and gunned down victims Friday night also had a specific victim in mind. ISIS stated that last week’s attacks in Paris were against the “capital of prostitution and obscenity.”

If Kerry can see a “rationale” to murder a magazine’s employees because of caricatures mocking Mohammed, it stands to reason he should see a rationale for murdering people because they live in the “capital of prostitution and obscenity.”

Kerry has spent a good deal of his time as Secretary of State rationalizing Islamic terror, especially the murder of Israelis “because of the settlements.”

He thinks that if the settlements would disappear, Palestinian Authority terror would disappear, just like it was supposed to fade away after the PA’s first – and last – democratic elections 11 years ago, and just like Hamas terror was going to evaporate when Israel expelled all Jews from Gaza and withdrew all Israeli soldiers.

Kerry thinks that if the Charlie Hebdo magazine had not mocked Mohammed, none of the magazine’s workers would have been murdered.

And if Western civilization would evaporate, there would be no more Islamic terror.

Turkish and Kuwaiti NGOs Funded Islamic Movement

Tuesday, November 17th, 2015

The Islamic Movement has become a “state within a state” and at the end of 2012 held $6.6 million, part of which came for foreign NGOs, Reshet Bet (Voice of Israel) radio reported Wednesday.

As reported here, the Security Cabinet has outlawed the organization, and police last night swooped down on its offices and NGOs to confiscate weapons, cash and computers.

NGOs in Turkey and Kuwait helped fatten the assets of the Islamic Movement, supposed a non-profit organization. Turkey’s IHH branch was organized and sent terrorists on the Mavi Mamara ship in 2010 to try to break the maritime embargo clamped on Hamas-controlled Gaza to prevent smuggling of weapons and terrorists.

If investigators can prove that the Islamic Movement, which preaches violence at the Temple Mount, used the money for incitement, indictments will follow.
