‘Charlie Hebdo’ Terrorists Have Hostage

Friday, January 9th, 2015

French police are reportedly exchanging fire with two terrorists who carried out a brutal massacre in Paris two days ago. The suspects were found north-east of Paris, and a car chase and shootout ensued.

According to French media reports the terrorists are holding a hostage.

The terrorists murdered 12 people, most of them staff at the Charlie Hebdo magazine. The magazine was targeted because it had published controversial cartoons mocking radical Islam. The paper also frequently poked fun at other groups, including Catholics and Jews.

Following the attack tens of thousands gathered in Paris, Toulouse, London, Brussels, and elsewhere in Europe to demonstrate for the right to free speech. Many held placards stating “Je suis Charlie” (“I am Charlie”).

Hamas Wants to Clean Up It’s Image, Just Like Iran Did

Tuesday, December 30th, 2014

Clearly learning a lesson from Iran, how a “charm offensive” can make your terrorism and anti-social behavior completely palatable to the West, some Hamas officials and ideologues and throwing out ideas on how to clean up their public image and gain global acceptance for their war on Israel.

Though their brutality, Islamic extremism and terrorist behavior are similar if not the same as ISIS and al-Qaida, Sheikh Ahmad Yousef, one of Hamas’s ideologues, doesn’t want Hamas associated with al-Qaida or ISIS anymore, according to a report in the British Independent.

Both terrorist groups, al-Qaida and ISIS, are considered enemies by Iran, which would certainly explain why Hamas, an Iranian client, doesn’t want their image associated with their fellow Islamic terrorists with whom they share so much in common.

To some extent, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s efforts to get the West to see the similarity between Hamas and ISIS worked, and that effort didn’t go unnoticed by Hamas.

As part of cleaning up their public image, the British Independent reports that Mousa Abu Marzouk, the deputy political chief of Hamas said,

“We have negotiated with Israel using weapons; so it is possible to negotiate with words.”

Sheikh Ahmad Yousef wants direct talks not just with Israel, but also the West, just like Iran:

“We have to acknowledge that there is a negative image of us among some in Europe and America. We can carry on and let that continue, or we can talk to these countries, put forward our case, exchange ideas: that seems to us to be the practical way forward.”

According to the Independent, the Sheikh continued,

Hamas needs to rethink its whole strategy, held Sheikh Ahmad, looking at what has been learnt from successive rounds of conflicts and negotiations and also be prepared to make changes to its 27-year-old manifesto, especially the parts in it which can be viewed as anti-Semitic. At the same time everything possible must be done to distance the movement from al-Qaeda and Isis, “making it very clear that the Islam we believe in is very different from theirs”.

The Islamic Republic of Iran, which hasn’t given up its efforts to build a nuclear bomb as it gets sanctions removed from a gullible West, is clearly a good teacher.

Hamas isn’t changing its plan to destroy Israel, but now they’ll put a happy face sticker on it.

Jewish Man ‘Accidentally’ Run Over – Twice

Sunday, December 21st, 2014

The family of Avi Ben-Tzion, who killed by a group of Arab men in the Shomron, is fighting to prove that he was murdered. The family held a press conference Sunday during which they revealed evidence about his death.

Police say Ben-Tzion was killed in a carjacking gone wrong – an explanation that his family dismissed as “an insult to our intelligence.”

His widow and children told Maariv that the men who killed Ben-Tzion ran over his body twice, indicating that his death was not a mere accident. “Police told us that the murderers did a u-turn, hit him, put the car in reverse, and hit him again. Does that not sound like they were confirming the kill? Does that not sound like murder?” they demanded.

The family noted that the Israel police has previously avoided describing attacks as “terrorism,” only to admit later that terrorism was involved.

Ben-Tzion was found three weeks ago at the Elon junction in the Jordan Valley, after having suffered serious physical trauma. He was taken to hospital in critical condition, and died a short time later.
