‘Call for Young People’ Recruits Terrorist Trainees on Twitter?

Friday, November 13th, 2015

A “Call for Young People” was put out early Friday in Arabic over the Internet via the Twitter social networking site, accompanied by a glowing picture of an Arab teen preparing to hurl a rock with a slingshot.

The fancy computer graphics are attractive to the eye, with bright colors that are sulfurous yellow and cherry-red above. The human figure is in ethereal white. The message seems pretty clear: violence awaits.

The “call” is only one of many such methods used to recruit new blood for the Palestinian Authority terror machine, which has begun to feed on its own children.

Allegedly the logic behind the strategy is two-fold:
1. Israeli authorities are loathe to jail a child, particularly one at age 13 or below, regardless of crime committed;

2. If the child is shot and wounded or killed during the course of attacking Israelis, that too is a “plus” because it makes for a terrific photo image to be used abroad, one that conveys the ultimate in “poor Arab population being abused by the powerful Israelis” graphics.

One way to avoid falling in to this abyss is to bar news coverage at a terror attack site. That is not popular but it can be done, citing the safety of media. Another way, and probably more effective, is for security personnel to erect an opaque cylindrical barrier around the body of any child terrorist shot or otherwise wounded during any attack.

Such a barrier will prevent the photographing of such images and their immediate misuse by media abroad.

The “call for young people” being flashed around the region by social networks in Arabic is not new: it is just updated with the Internet and bells and whistles now provided with computer graphics programs.

The sooner Israel learns to counter such posts, the better off we all will be.

Kerry Tweets that Trump Is Disqualified to Run for President

Thursday, October 22nd, 2015

The American Secretary of State now has promoted, or demoted, himself to be the sole judge of whether a presidential candidate’s positions qualify him to be president of the United States of America.

John Kerry’s problem with Republican candidate Donald Trump is the maverick billionaire scoffs at global warning, a subject that is close to Kerry’s heart, perhaps even more than the “peace process.”

Trump, whose expertise on everything often is not supported by any knowledge, tweeted this week:


The Donald is sure he is right because cold weather stormed into the East Coast Monday, not unusual for mid-October.

Liberal media had a field day mocking Trump, but no one went so far as Kerry to “disqualify” a man because he thinks differently from the Secretary of State, whose expertise on world matters often is not supported by knowledge or common sense.

Kerry tweeted:


However, Kerry’s judgmental attitude reflects to a certain extent that of President Barack Obama, whose press secretary Josh Earnest said last May of those who are against a United Nations climate treaty:

Well these are individuals whom, many of whom at least, deny the fact that climate change even exists. So I’m not sure they would be in the best position to decide whether or not a climate change agreement is one that is worth entering into.”

In other words, the “freethinkers” draw the line when someone does not think like they do.

Greek Minister Quits after 12 Hours in Office over Anti-Semitic Tweets

Thursday, September 24th, 2015

(JNi.media) Greek Right-wing lawmaker Dimitris Kammenos on Wednesday night resigned—over anti-Semitic and homophobic remarks—from the post of the Deputy Infrastructure Minister, a mere 12 hours after the swearing-in ceremony of Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras’s new cabinet following Sunday’s snap national election.

Kammenos was accused of making fun of EU supporters last June, posting a photoshopped image of the gate of Auschwitz, with the infamous slogan “Arbeit Macht Frei” (Work Makes You Free) replaced with “We Stay in Europe,” on his Facebook page. At the time, the posting raised a scandal, and the Central Board of Jewish Communities in Greece protested the callused use of the death camp to make a political point.

Kammenos later tweeted kind of an apology: “The comparison may have been unfortunate but there is an economic holocaust under way in my country!”

From the tweet itself, despite its obvious crudeness, it doesn’t appear that the shortest serving government official in recent memory is an anti-Semite. However, Kammenos has also been accused of supporting a conspiracy theory that 2,500 Jewish World Trade Center employees received an early warning and stayed home on September 11, 2001.

The inclusion of Kammenos and four other members of the Independent Greeks party Prime Minister Tsipras’s government caused an outrage in Greece. The party’s leader, Panos Kammenos, is the new defense minister.

Also last June, news came out that Kammenos had called the Athens gay pride parade “pathetic,” and other homophobic comments by him were found on his social media accounts.

The two-party coalition government has 155 seats in the 300-member Greek parliament (with 145 for left-wing Syriza and 10 for the right-wing Anel).

Khamenei Tweets Silhouette of Obama Committing Suicide

Sunday, July 26th, 2015

Iran continues to make President Barack Obama look like a used mop while knowingly or unknowingly providing ammunition for wavering Congressional Democrats to decide to vote against “ObamaDeal” and retain American sanctions.

Ayatollah Ali Khamenei’s latest missive to mock President Obama was tweeted on Saturday in the form of a silhouette that shows the President pointing a gun at his own head.

The message above the picture repeats the same disparaging tweet that the Ayatollah sent out a week before and only three days after the United States and the other P5+1 powers signed a nuclear agreement with Iran:

If any war happens, the one who will emerge loser will be the aggressive and criminal U.S.

The U.N. Security Council jumped for joy and almost immediately approved the agreement, leaving the United States as the only possible holdout and whose rejection would only affect American sanctions, while foreign corporations already are lining up in Tehran to stuff Iran’s and their own pockets.

President Obama has not responded to the tweets, the latest have been re-tweeted more than 1,200 times, which might be the best thing for Twitter’s stock since it went public.

However, even the Democrats on Main Street, America do not take kindly to a foreigner mocking their president. Patriotic cloth is part of the American wardrobe that is also worn by Democrats who support senators like Church Schumer and Ben Cardin, both of them key votes in the battle to accept ObamaDeal or reject it by a veto-proof majority.

As much as Schumer, Cardin and other undecided Democrats care about supporting President Obama, they have to keep in mind their ultimate bosses – the voters – if they want their votes come election time.

Khamenei’s making Obama look like a wimp could be just the ammunition the Republicans need to ditch the American side of the deal.


Twitter Poll: Voters Prefer an Avocado over Trump in the White House

Tuesday, July 7th, 2015

Would you prefer that an avocado sit n the White House instead of Donald Trump?

If so, you are not alone.

“A Twitter account called AvocadoFact tweeted what seemed like a fun and harmless message on July 1,” the Mashable.com digital media website reported.

Readers were asked:

Who would you rather have in office? rt for an avocado. fav for donald trump?

As of Sunday, the avocado beat Trump by a margin in 10-1, with 61,367 rewets for the fruit and 5,987 for Trump.

Trump has won big headlines and lost even bigger support with his degrading comments about Mexicans, prompting several large companies to break business deals with him.

He made matters even worse on Monday be going on an another rant against Mexicans, alleging they are responsible for “tremendous infectious disease … pouring across the border.”

In a poor attempt at a “some of my best friends are Mexicans” spin, Trump added, “I am proud to say that I know many hard-working Mexicans – many of them are working for and with me.”

Some of the replies to the poll were even more amusing than the question.

Here are some of the best:

I would equate Obama and potatoes, for foreign policy and for all his job as president

You’re retarded if you think Trump could be taken seriously.

I bet he has cleaning staff in his properties that are illegal immigrants.

While everyone who knows better laughs and makes jokes about these crazy, racist idiots – real people with real fears are willing to vote for them.

Lowly? Avocados are a gift of heaven. Comparing them to this bozo is just an insult.

Now, how about Twitter poll asking people to choose between Hillary Clinton and a baked potato?

And let’s give voters a chance to decide whether they would prefer or a lemon to sit in the Oval Office.

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.

ISIS Threatens ‘Countdown to Terror’ in Rome

Thursday, April 30th, 2015

The Da’esh (ISIS) terror organization said Wednesday it has begun its “countdown” to terror in Rome.

The radical Islamist group organization posted photographs to ISIS-linked accounts on the Twitter social networking site, saying “waiting for the zero hour.”

The photos are taken in the streets of Rome with a paper bearing the message with the hashtag “ #Islamic State in Rome “ held up to the camera. Some are handwritten in Arabic, some are in Italian, saying, “We are in your streets,” the RT news site reported Wednesday. A number of messages on Twitter were posted in English as well.

One of the photos appears to have been taken at the Colosseum in Rome; others seem to have been taken in Milan. Some Italian Twitter users are claiming the tweets are fake and the photos are as well.

The Italian government, meanwhile, is taking no chances and has increased security around Rome, particularly at strategic sites and landmarks that could be targeted by the group. Security officials established a counter-terrorism task force months ago with Albania, following the “Charlie Hebdo” and Hyper Cacher massacres in Paris this past January.
