Egypt’s Pres. Sisi Urges Clerics, ‘Confront Misleading Islamic Ideology’

Thursday, January 1st, 2015

In a statement clearly intended to end terror recruitment at home and abroad, Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi urged clerics Thursday to confront “misleading ideologies harming Islam and Muslims worldwide.”

Many terrorist groups broadcast radical Islamist sermons via the Internet and satellite television as well as social networking sites in order to recruit new members to their jihadist cause. At least one produces a full-fledged Internet magazine.

Egyptian military and police forces have been focusing their efforts on eliminating terror bases and training camps embedded in the Sinai Peninsula over the past several years.

The local Al Qaeda-linked Ansar Bayt al-Maqdis recently swore allegiance to the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) terror organization. Also in Sinai are Hamas, Hezbollah, Islamic Jihad and Army of Islam terror bases, among others.

Sisi also told the clerics at al-Azhar and the Awqaf Ministry it is important to renew “religious discourse” and spread moderate teachings of Islam, and urged Muslims to “follow the prophet.”

The Egyptian leader offered his greetings Muslims and Christians on the occasion of the birthday of the prophet Muhammed, founder of Islam, and on the New Year.

He praised efforts by the country’s armed forces and the police to provide security and defend the nation. Sisi underlined in particular the importance of fighting terrorism, which he pointed out “tarnishes the image” of the greater Islamic nation in the world.

The Egyptian leader made the statements during the Awqaf Ministry’s celebrations of the anniversary of the birthday of the prophet Muhammed, the founder of Islam. The Awqaf is the ministry of religious endowments; in Israel it is known as the “Waqf.” The Cairo-based Al-Azhar, founded in 970 CE, is known as the primary global center of Islamic and Arabic learning.

Al Aqsa Mosque ‘Stand-Up’ Preacher Calls for Annihilation of the United States

Friday, November 28th, 2014

A spur of the moment speech by a Muslim at the Al Aqsa mosque on the Temple Mount called for annihilation of the United States.

The speech was translated and posted this week by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), and the video shows the young man, named Ali Abu Ahmed, railing against the Jews and West.

Ahmed’s voice and delivery definitely show him as having great potential to be a real Islamist preacher, breathing fire and brim storm against the evils of Islam, mainly Israel, Jews and the United States. The Palestinian Authority should place him on the “Arabs Got Talent.”

The “freedom of speech” in the mosque is a result of “goodwill measures” by Israel, at the insistence of the United States and King Abdullah of Jordan, to “reduce tensions” by eliminating restrictions on the ages of who can enter the Temple Mount.

If this reducing tension, what does “escalating tensions” mean?

Ahmed spoke from the mosque that is Islam’s third most holy site, proving once again what the worshippers pray for.

The Western world, as well as Israeli Public Security Minister Yitzchak Aharonovitch and national police commissioner Yohanan Danino, don’t want Jews praying near the mosque or even on the Temple Mount at all.

They are afraid that a Jewish presence will cause violence, but the freedom of people like Ahmed to scream for the destruction of Israel and the United States apparently is not incitement. It is the radical Islamic version of prayer.

If Jews were allowed to pray on the Temple Mount, the prayers for peace would certainly upset the Muslims. If there were peace, their preachers would be out of a job.

As for the speech itself, which can be seen with English sub-titles in the video below, Ahmed said Jews are “the most vile of creatures. Tune in around 2:00 into the video, towards the end, and you can see and hear Ahmed declaring,” Oh, Allah, annihilate America and its coalition.”

Arab Terror Hits Hard at Jerusalem Hotel Occupancy Rate

Sunday, November 23rd, 2014

The occupancy rate in Jerusalem hotels has plummeted by nearly 50 percent in the wake of recent Arab terror.

“Thirty percent of our clients, Israelis and foreigners already in Israel, called following the running over of bystanders by a terrorist driving a car and asked to move their tour route from central Jerusalem to the Biblical Zoo, which is fenced in and secured at the entrance, or to Tel Aviv,” Yossi Griver, co-owner of Zuzu Motoric Tourism, told the Globes business newspaper.

A veteran tour guide told The Jewish Press Sunday, “Tourists are cancelling trips they scheduled with me. They don’t even come from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.”

The war in Gaza last summer was a financially deadly strike at tourism, which had been at record highs before Hamas started pummeling Israel with missiles as far north as metropolitan Tel Aviv and Jerusalem.

“The escalating security situation in the city has dealt another blow to tourism, already hit hard by Operation Protective Edge,” said Alfred Akirov, owner of Alrov, which operates David Citadel and Mamilla Hotels in Jerusalem.

Occupancy rates at Jerusalem hotels now are 35-40 percent, compared with the usual seasonal rate of 65-70 percent.

The city of Jerusalem and businesses are trying to attract business with free tours and discounts, but it is difficult to overcome a mood of fear, exactly what terrorists want to drive in the hearts of Jews.

Jerusalem tour guide Ron Peled told Globes, “There is a dramatic plunge of 80-90 percent in the number of Israeli tourists visiting Jerusalem. Would you take your kids on a trip to Jerusalem now? If you were invited to a bar mitzvah at the Western Wall, would you go? It’s not a sure thing.

“A large number of the tour guides in the city have no work because of the situation that has prevailed since Operation Protective Edge. There is a more moderate decline. You can still see tourists in the city.”

Guy Klaiman, general manager of the recently opened Waldorf Astoria Jerusalem Hotel, is more optimistic, if for no other reason than radical Islamists have attacked throughout the world.

“Tourists regard these things differently these days,” he told Globes. “They understand that there is no safe place in the world, and that part of life today is taking some risks. It’s not safe in London, either. When I worked there, we had to deal with terrorist explosions. Being a Jew in Antwerp is not exactly safe now, either.”

‘There is a War against Jews on the Internet and on the Streets’

Saturday, November 15th, 2014

“There is a war against the Jews on the internet and on the streets” in Europe, European Jewish Congress (EJC) president Dr. Moshe Cantor said Saturday night, hours after an Antwerp rabbi was stabbed in the throat while he was walking to synagogue.

“Until there is a crackdown on incitement to hatred and anti-Semitism, then more people will believe that these types of attacks are legitimate,” Kantor added.

The EJC called on authorities across Europe to provide Jewish communities with a sense of security after the latest attack.

“Jews in Europe have lost a normal sense of security that worsens with every attack on Jews and Jewish institutions which are taking place with alarming regularity,” according to Kantor. “As citizens of Europe, it is the responsibility of the authorities, political, judicial and law enforcement, to ensure that Jews feel free to walk the streets in the open and live their lives absent of the fear these attacks generate….

“At the root of these attacks is the ongoing incitement against Jews from across the political spectrum and radical Islamists,”

When will European leaders take action, real action, against the radical Islamic threat to the continent?

A good guess would be that the time will come after Jews leave for Israel, if not elsewhere, and the Gentiles become next target of Muslim fanatics, who are rapidly emerging as the de facto leaders of Islam.

Americans Frantic over Threat of Islamic Terror

Tuesday, October 28th, 2014

An overwhelming majority of 86 percent of likely American voters “consider radical Islamic terrorism a threat to the United States,” according to a new Rasmussen telephone survey conducted last week.

The poll followed two deadly attacks in Canada.

The respondents also conceded that not all “lone wolf” terrorism can be prevented. The results obviously indicate that American also don’t seem to have much faith that terrorism by an organized group can be prevented.

Their sense of being threatened is 11 points higher than expressed in a similar poll in January.

Half of the sample of likely voters said that the threat from radical Islam is “very serious,” while only three percent dismissed it as not being a threat at all.

Kerry Says Lack of Israeli-PA Peace Fuels Islamic Terror Recruitment

Friday, October 17th, 2014

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry told Muslims Thursday night that the absence of peace between Israel and the Palestinian Authority is “a cause of recruitment and of street anger and agitation.”

He told a reception in honor of the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Adha that the anger “has something to do with humiliation and denial and absence of dignity.”

This is not satire. This is real. This is actually what was declared by Kerry, former chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and now the Secretary of State of the United States of America.

It would be funny if it were not true, but it certainly is sad when an intelligent person plays the role of idiot and connects dots that create a maze without an escape route by manufacturing the Arab world’s demands on Israel as the cause of all problems in the world, except for Ebola – so far.

The Muslim holiday reception was hosted by Shaarik Zafar, whom Kerry appointed last month as Special Representative to Muslim Communities. That was just after the Islamic State ISIS murderers hanged its first American victim, journalist James Foley. Kerry’s response at the installation ceremony of Zafar was, “The real face of Islam is a peaceful religion based on the dignity of all human beings.”

That is the premise for the twisted path that ends with the finger of blame for Muslim violence at the doorstep of Israel. The Obama administration is careful to not to single out Israel for the failure of talks but simply says so in a twisted way by damning every one of nearly 350,000 Jews in Jerusalem neighborhoods as “illegitimate’ and “illegal,” just like an equal number in Judea and Samaria.

Kerry began his speech by praising the “terrific $5.4 billion” raised in Cairo this week to rebuild Gaza. He did not mention that Hamas, which runs Gaza, has not agreed to disarm and has actually bragged that it is continuing to manufacture rockets to restore the stockpile lose in the recent war.

Once again, the Obama administration has ignored Israel’s insistence that there can be no peace with a terrorist organization that does not disavow its stated goal of destroying Israel.

Instead, the key is “negotiations,” a term which Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas has successfully turned into “ultimatum.”

No peace in Gaza? No problem. Kerry said last night, “It is imperative that we find a way to get back to the negotiations for what everybody knows is, in the end, the only way to go forward that makes sense.”

And that is where his “Special Representative to Muslim Communities comes into play.

“We have the first faith-based office,” Kerry stated. “We have the office reaching out to the Islamic world. And when he started drafting our national strategic approach as a leader of a faith community, he began that strategy with two words: ‘religion matters.'”

Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism and atheism never mattered in the State Dept’s 30-year goal of punishing Israel for having won the war against the Arab Muslim world in 1967, but all of a sudden religion matters because radical Islam is embarrassing to followers of Allah.

“What we’re really doing as we… celebrate Eid al-Adha is that we are celebrating sort of the meaning and importance of sacrifice and devotion in our lives,” said Pastor Kerry.

Sounding more like John Lennon than a man of individual faith, he cited the quest for “introspection and re-evaluation through Eid al-Adha and Yom Kippur.

Kerry painted a lovely picture of the world of “a young girl somewhere in New Delhi praying outside of a mosque, or kids or adults in Pakistan, girls singing songs and painting their hands with henna, or Shiites in the holy city of Najaf or fellow Shi’a celebrating Eid-e-Ghorban in Iran.”

MSNBC Show Host Says Oklahoma Beheading Was ‘Workplace Violence’

Monday, September 29th, 2014

Put aside any radical and fanatical thoughts that the madman who beheaded a woman in Oklahoma acted out of any beliefs that are connected to his new-found Muslim religion. The murder simply was no more and no less than “workplace violence.”

Who says so?

Sp says Melissa Victoria Harris-Perry, who also is a convert to Islam and is the host of her show on MSNBC. Harris-Perry was backed by her three stooges who nodded their robotic heads approvingly, two of them being controversial Muslim comedians.

Rest assured. The host insisted, “I think this to me is that there is a belief that at the core – I can also probably have breakfast that morning but we don’t think any of those things are relevant. But we do think that his conversion, jailhouse by the way, conversion is what is relevant.”

She has a point – on her head.

Beheading is not your everyday murder, and the fact that ISIS Islamic radicals have popularized the barbaric act has no more significance than Harris-Perry’s eating breakfast?

The question is, “What is Harris-Perry putting in her corn flakes?”

Apparently she is eating with laughing gas. For her, the only connection between radical Islam and the beheading carried out by Alton Nolen is in the imagination of radical and fanatical right-wingers who are looking for a Muslim terrorist behind every beheading carried out by a Muslim who posted radical and fanatical statements on his Facebook page,

All Muslims are not violent, just as all Jews are not money-lenders, an image that has dogged us even until today ever since Medieval Christian rulers barred Jews from respectable professions and left them with little opportunity except to be peasants or lend money..

Normal, moderate mainstream Muslims have allowed radical Islam to hijack their religion, but Harris-Perry has a remedy.

Meet funny Islam.

“We’ve gone on and on and on creating this language between Muslims and violence and we need to have a counter-narrative. We don’t. So what we need — that is what we are trying to do… Muslims are funny. That’s the new stereotype. Pass it around. Muslims are hilarious,” one of her stooges said.

If Harris-Perry were not serious she really would be funny.

Take a look for yourself in the video below of the excerpt from her show in which she calls the beheading “workplace violence.”
