EU Says ‘Europe Will Not Be Intimidated’ by Terror

Sunday, February 15th, 2015

The European Union vowed, “Europe will not be intimidated” in the wake of another round of Paris-style terror attacks over the weekend striking the Danish capital of Copenhagen.

“The European Commission and the High Representative (Federica Mogherini) deplore the attacks in Copenhagen costing the life of at least two citizens and injuring several others,” said the EU delegation to Israel in a statement sent to media by email late Sunday.

“Even one life is too many. Our thoughts are with the victims and their families. Europe stands united with Denmark in upholding freedom of speech and freedom of expression,” the statement continued.

“We stand against anti-Semitism and all forms of discrimination. Europe will not be intimidated.”

But while Europe issues statements about not being intimidated by anti-Semitism, Jews are dying for the cause.

Dan Uzan, 37, donated his life to stop the terrorist’s bullets with his own body, thus preventing the attack from becoming a massacre. Uzan was guarding a Bat Mitzvah being held at a Copenhagen synagogue at the time of the attack.

Hours earlier, 55-year-old documentary film-maker Finn Noergaard died from wounds sustained after absorbing gunshots fired in the first attack; it appears, however, that the gunman’s target may have been Lars Vilk, the Danish cartoonist known for his satiric caricatures of the founder of Islam, the prophet Muhammad, which Muslims have found offensive.

Remember the Terror Attack on Jerusalem’s Supersol Agron

Wednesday, February 4th, 2015

The family of a victim of terror fears Israelis will forget their loved one who died to give life to the Jewish State in 1969.

“Very few people are aware of this terror attack that took place in Jerusalem forty-six years ago, on Feb. 2, 1969,” Michael Jankelowitz wrote in an email marking the anniversary of the bombing at Jerusalem’s Supersol Agron – the supermarket on Agron Street in the capital.

Two Hebrew University students were killed that day: Eddie Joffe, formerly of Capetown, South Africa and Leon Kanner.

“Together with the Joffe family we are requesting the Jerusalem Municipalty and Supersol [together] place a plaque by the pavement near the entrance to Supersol on Agron Street in Jerusalem to mark the murder” of the two men, so their memories will be perpetuated.

On the lovely road that winds down to the Dead Sea from Be’er Sheva and Arad, one can see numerous memorials to those who have died in traffic accidents. They dot the landscape on each side of the narrow highway with various types of sculptures, each bearing a plaque with the name of the departed and the date he or she died.

This should not seem so difficult and one has to wonder why after nearly half a century that it has not yet come to pass. And yet, upon reflection, it is also true that generally within a short time after any terror attack, the scene is spotlessly cleaned and as if born anew; no trace of the tragedy remains.

Perhaps this is the way of Israel not to allow our enemies any way in which to gloat over our losses; our grief remains our own, private and within our hearts forever. If one cannot find evidence of terror, then can one say a scar on the nation exists? No victory to the terrorist…

Rest in peace, victims of terror. We remember you forever.

French Police Still Searching for 3 Terrorists

Wednesday, January 7th, 2015

French police are still searching for the 3 Islamic terrorists who opened fire in the offices of the Charlie Hebdo magazine in Paris, killing 12 people, including 2 policemen and an editor and cartoonist at the magazine. Four other people have been critically injured.

The three terrorists swapped cars after the attack, stealing another car for their getaway.

A witness who spoke to the terrorists before the attack and let them into the building, said they spoke perfect French and they said they were from Al Qaida.

The woman was there with her child, and they threatened to kill them if she didn’t let them into the building. The woman and her daughter hid under a table during the attack.

The terrorists asked for some of their victims by name.

Other witnesses to the attack said they heard them yell, “We’ve avenged the honor of the prophet” and “Allah hu Achbar.”

The terrorists have been described as clearly having professional military training.

Rivlin Visits Arami Family, Three Months After Murder

Tuesday, December 9th, 2014

President Ruby Rivlin visited the family of Netanel Arami on Tuesday to pay his condolences.

Netanel Arami was murdered three months ago in Petach Tikva, when both his rappelling cables were cut as he was going down the side of a building he was working on.

Originally, the police had a gag order on the case, but the court eventually lifted it after pressure from the family, publicizing that Arami was murdered in a terror attack.

At the time, almost no government officials, besides MK Moshe Feiglin visited the family.
