‘Allahu Akbar’ scrawled on Jewish home, 10-year-old Jewish girl beaten by classmates

It’s very likely that those classmates were also adherents of the Religion of Peace. Jews have not had this kind of trouble in France since World War II, until this period of massive Muslim immigration.

The Qur’an depicts the Jews as inveterately evil and bent on destroying the well-being of the Muslims. They are the strongest of all people in enmity toward the Muslims (5:82); they fabricate things and falsely ascribe them to Allah (2:79; 3:75, 3:181); they claim that Allah’s power is limited (5:64); they love to listen to lies (5:41); they disobey Allah and never observe his commands (5:13). They are disputing and quarreling (2:247); hiding the truth and misleading people (3:78); staging rebellion against the prophets and rejecting their guidance (2:55); being hypocritical (2:14, 2:44); giving preference to their own interests over the teachings of Muhammad (2:87); wishing evil for people and trying to mislead them (2:109); feeling pain when others are happy or fortunate (3:120); being arrogant about their being Allah’s beloved people (5:18); devouring people’s wealth by subterfuge (4:161); slandering the true religion and being cursed by Allah (4:46); killing the prophets (2:61); being merciless and heartless (2:74); never keeping their promises or fulfilling their words (2:100); being unrestrained in committing sins (5:79); being cowardly (59:13-14); being miserly (4:53); being transformed into apes and pigs for breaking the Sabbath (2:63-65; 5:59-60; 7:166); and more. They are under Allah’s curse (9:30), and Muslims should wage war against them and subjugate them under Islamic hegemony (9:29).

“French girl hospitalized following classmates’ antisemitic attack,” JTA, October 7, 2017 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

A 10-year-old girl was assaulted by her classmates and the home of a family was daubed with racist graffiti in two Paris-area incidents deemed antisemitic.

The alleged assault was reported to France’s ministry of education by the National Bureau for Vigilance Against Antisemitism, or BNVCA, the watchdog group wrote in a statement on its website Tuesday.  Separately, the same group reported that unidentified individuals on Wednesday wrote antisemitic slogans on the side of a home belonging to Jewish family in the eastern suburb of Noisy le Grand.

The mother of the girl who allegedly was assaulted, identified by BNVCA only as Ness, complained to police recently that a group of classmates of her daughter in the public school which she attends in Paris’ 18th district beat her on multiple occasions, often occurring day after day, only because she is Jewish. After one beating, Ness was brought to hospital with a visible contusion to her stomach and ribcage, the report said, requiring 10 days of recovery.

The child will be transferred to a different school, BNVCA wrote.

According to Francis Kalifat, the president of the CRIF federation of Jewish communities of France, antisemitic harassment has made public schools unsafe for Jews, leading to a sharp drop in the number of Jews attending them. In the past, a third of Jewish parents enrolled their children to public schools but now “no one does it,” he told JTA last year.

In the incident involving antisemitic graffiti, BNVCA said it was part of a campaign of intimidation against the family that owns the building targeted.

This time, they wrote “screw the shitty Jews, death to Jews, long live Palestine.” In recent years, the same family found in their mailbox an envelope featuring the words “Allah hu akbar” – Arabic for Allah is the greatest — with 9-milimeter bullets inside. They later received another envelope with a bullet for an AK-47 assault rifle and the words: “The next one is for you.”

The family is afraid to live in their home, wrote BNVCA, which complained to police about the incidents committed against the family and called on authorities to apprehend the culprits….

Muslims at University of Texas Arlington: ‘Stuff Jews in the oven’

Muslim students mocking the Holocaust, inciting violence against Jews, delegitimizing the existence of Israel, and pushing a false Palestinian and “Islamophobia” victim-hood narrative has become commonplace. The media is trying desperately to portray President Trump as responsible for antisemitism in the U.S.; in reality, they should be looking at Students for Justice in Palestine and its allied groups.

And now this hatred has even entered schools for the youngest children. Nancy Salem, who is quoted in the article below, taught at The Children’s Courtyard in South Arlington, Texas. Salem was also “a member of the UTA chapter of Students for Justice in Palestine and a supporter of the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement,” and “used her now-disabled Twitter account to post such remarks as: ‘How many Jews died in the Holocaust? Not enough…HAHAHAHA.’”

Salem was suspended from her teaching job; but she should be fired and charged with a hate crime, as should have been the case with a Toronto-area school teacher, as reported by Jihad Watch….

A Toronto-area schoolteacher who called a jihadist who crushed the skull of a four-year-old Israeli girl a hero and martyr is back in the classroom, after receiving a mere rap on the knuckles for her abhorrently violent Facebook postings. A spokesperson for the Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School said that Nadia Shoufani returned to work at St. Catherine of Siena Separate School before Christmas. She was not charged with a hate crime, according to the announcement, and she is being entrusted with the well-being of children. Why should any Canadian child have to sit in a classroom led by a murder-minded, hate-filled teacher? The school administration should be prioritizing the well-being of the children.

“‘Stuff Jews in the Oven’ Among Antisemitic Social Media Posts Flooding Pages of University of Texas-Arlington Students, Covert Campus Watchdog Finds”, by Lea Spyer, Algemeiner, February 15, 2017:

“Jews only live once” and “stuff Jews in the oven” are among the offensive comments flooding the social media pages of current and former students at the University of Texas, Arlington (UTA), a dossier recently released by a covert campus watchdog group revealed.

According to the document, compiled by Canary Mission – which anonymously monitors anti-American, anti-Israel and antisemitic activity on US college campuses — 24 UTA students and graduates have likened Israel to Nazi Germany, called for violence against Jews and both denied and championed the Holocaust in Facebook and Twitter posts.

Majority of the posts come from former and current students affiliated with the school’s chapters of Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) and Muslim Student Association (MSA).

In 2014, UTA student Mariam Ghanem — an SJP activist and member of MSA — compared Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to Hitler, and tweeted a cartoon equating Nazi soldiers and IDF officers.

In 2013, Ismail Said Aboukar — a member of UTA’s SJP and MSA and a proponent of the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement — referred to the Nazi genocide of the Jews as “#LiesToldInSchool.”

Aboukar also said the “world would be sooo much better without jews man [sic].”

Nancy Salem — a student activist with UTA’s SJP and a supporter of BDS — retweeted a riddle asking: “How many Jews died in the Holocaust?” The answer: “Not enough, HAHAHAHA.” And another: “How was the copper wire invented?” Answer: “They threw a penny between two Jews.”

The postings uncovered by Canary Mission represent just a “fraction of the hatred and intolerance that SJP and its members harbor on campuses across North America,” the group said, and pointed out that of the 24 students whose online rhetoric is blatantly antisemitic, 19 are affiliated with SJP and 12 with MSA.

As The Algemeiner reported in October, a study released at Brandeis — called “Hotspots of Antisemitism and Anti-Israel Sentiment on US Campuses” — showed that “one of the strongest predictors of perceiving a hostile climate towards Israel and Jews is the presence of an active Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) group on campus.”

Following the publication of this article, a UTA spokesman told The Algemeiner, “As one of the most diverse campuses in the nation, inclusion and respect are at the very core of the values of UTA. UTA condemns statements of hate while acknowledging the principles of free speech and open expression. We welcome and encourage the sharing of ideas, thoughts and opinions, but we also expect respect and civility from students, faculty and staff.”…….

INTELLIGENCE FAILURE: Berlin Muslim slaughterer was on terror watchlist, used 14 different aliases

This shows how effective terror watch lists are, and how well jihad terror suspects are being kept under surveillance. And there are many, many more Anis Amris in Europe now.

“Berlin Christmas market killer Anis Amri used 14 aliases,” Sky News, January 5, 2017:

German authorities knew of 14 different identities used by the man who drove a truck into a Berlin Christmas market, a police chief has revealed.

Anis Amri ploughed into a crowd of shoppers at a market in the German capital on 19 December, killing 12 people and injuring dozens of others.

He was killed in a shootout with Italian police in Milan four days later.

The 24-year-old Tunisian arrived in Germany in mid-2015 and authorities later put him on a terror watchlist of potentially violent Islamic extremists.

He was kept under covert surveillance for six months in 2016 before the operation was halted….

Muslim migrants watching Islamic State videos in asylum home

Bring in more Muslim migrants, Merkel! What could possibly go wrong? It would be “racist” and “Islamophobic” to refuse to bring them in!

“Officials Alarmed After Discovering Young Migrants Watching Islamic State Videos,” by Chris Tomlinson, Breitbart, December 24, 2016 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

Officials in an asylum home in Germany have raised the alarm after discovering several young asylum seekers have been watching Islamic State propaganda films and may have been radicalised.

Officials at an asylum home for unaccompanied minors in Freising discovered three young migrants in their care had not only watched several Islamic State propaganda videos but had also taken pictures of themselves posing with the symbols of the terror group, Müncher Merkur reports.

Local councillor Josef Hauner said, “We are making sure to look for any hint” of radicalisation and added, “fortunately nothing has happened.” Both the police and local government were made aware of the three underage migrants and are said to be observing them closely.

District office spokesman Eva Dörpinghaus confirmed that the three migrants had been watching Islamic State videos and that one of them had made his own Islamic State flag. One of the migrants had been described by asylum staff as “ambitious, diligent and willing to learn.”

“The indications that unaccompanied minors are radicalising are different,” Dörpinghaus said, adding that supervisors of the underage migrants required a “special sensitivity” to detect the signs of radicalisation.

The Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (BAMF) was also notified and they, in turn, mobilised anti-radicalisation experts who are now working with the migrants.

An expert at BAMF said, “Looking at supposed IS videos or crafting an IS flag is a fact that may indicate a radicalisation process at an advanced stage,” and the agency appear to be taking the potential threat very seriously.

Freising Police Chief Ernst Neuner said that no charges would be made against the migrants as no crime had been committed. He likened the case to German children drawing swastikas, a symbol banned in Germany.

The radicalisation of young underage migrants is a top concern for German authorities as some of the attacks committed in the country this year were plotted or carried out by underage Muslims, some of them asylum seekers.

Salafist preachers have been reported infiltrating asylum homes to recruit young migrants. Police and intelligence agencies have warned that extremists volunteer in asylum homes for the purpose of radicalising migrants….

VIDEO: The Doctrine of Cowards

Why are so many Muslim refugees coming to the U.S.? Why do so few persecuted Christians come? The answer is the position of the churches. The biggest door into U.S. society is the church door. The Christians and Jews love to attend interfaith gatherings where they sit and nod their heads yes to all that the Muslims say.

But the Christian and Jewish leaders are ignorant about Islam. They know nothing about the Islamic doctrine of Christian and Jew hatred. But what is worse is that they refuse to learn.

Christian leaders have developed a doctrine of the coward to justify their pious ignorance and fear. They are all about turning the other cheek, loving their enemies, and doing nothing while waiting for Jesus to return. They are incapable of boldness and courage. Wimps all (well, about 95% of them).

And if you are not a Christian, why aren’t you concerned with the greatest human rights tragedy happening today—the killing of religious minorities in Islamic lands? Why can’t persecuted Christians come as refugees to America? When will Christians care about the persecution of their own brothers and sisters?

What has happened to us (Christians, Jews, Buddhists, atheists and all others) that we are no longer able to have moral outrage? Righteous anger?

The West has Abandoned Christians for Saudi Oil

The Patriarch of Antioch accused Western countries of hypocrisy in their fight against Islamist extremism by caring about oil more than Christian refugees.

A senior Syrian priest accused Western countries of abandoning their principles and allowing Islamist extremists to massacre Christians in the Middle East because they are blinded by their lust for oil, according to the Christian media outlet Crossmap.

Patriarch Ignatius Joseph III Younan of the Syriac Catholic Church of Antioch made the remarks to a meeting of the Knights of Columbus in Toronto.

“We have to understand that totalitarianism based on Islamic creed is the worst among all systems of government. Yes, my friends, the very survival of Christians in the cradle of Christianity is quite in danger,” the patriarch said.

“Why shall we wonder at the rise of the Islamic State or its new ‘Caliphate,’ when these ‘allied rich countries’ – with among the most retrograde systems of government – continue to channel funding and weapons to terrorists spreading hatred and committing barbaric atrocities in the name of a religion?” he asked, referring to Saudi Arabia.

He directly attacked the West’s funding of Syrian rebel militia groups saying, “We, the Church pastors, kept warning Westerners who pretended to have the right to interfere in Syria in the name of democracy, that fomenting violence would surely lead to terrible sectarian war because of the complex religious and ethnic diversity in Syria. We knew innocent people, primarily Christians and minorities, would suffer most.”

He also blasted Western support of Saudi Arabia, quoting New York Times Columnist Nicholas Kristof, who said,”For decades, Saudi Arabia has recklessly financed and promoted a harsh and intolerant Wahhabi version of Islam around the world in a way that is, quite predictably, producing terrorists.”

“You can’t be allied with regimes that discriminate or do not accept the religious freedom of non-Muslims” he asserted. “It’s not honest or sincere to be allied to such a regime, and [then] to say we have an annual report about religious freedom.”

Saudi Arabia does not allow any non-Muslim to enter the Muslim holy city of Mecca. Churches are forbidden and leaving Islam is punishable by death. Women are not allowed to drive or perform a host of other basic tasks without the permission of their male guardian, their father, husband, brother or occasionally son.

The Patriarch is right to attack the West for supporting regimes that promote Islamist extremism while it attempts to cope with that very same problem. Without directly tackling the Saudi regime, which funds its totalitarian vision of Wahhabist Islam worldwide, measures to address radical Islam will be addressing the symptoms rather than the cause.

Germans: ‘There is NO place for Islam in our politics’

This is a growing trend — a response to the increasing Islamization of Europe and its attendant supremacism, misogyny, Jew-hatred and bigotry.

Yesterday, Breitbart published an article I wrote on the same poll results in France: Poll Shows ‘Total Rejection’ of Islam in France Across the Political Spectrum. And still the European elites run roughshod over the will of the people. So prepare yourself for admonishments, Obama dawah speeches, wails of islamofauxbia and backlashophobia that we must always suffer for opposing jihad-terror and the most brutal, extreme ideology on the face of the earth — the sharia.

But this “discontent” is growing, and the fight for freedom has only just begun.

muslims-germany

“‘There is NO place for Islam in our politics’ Shock poll highlights Germany’s discontent,” By Rebecca Perring, The Express, May 5, 2016
MORE than half of Germans surveyed in a shock poll say there is “no place for Islam” in their nation’s political system.

More than 60 per cent of people say Islam cannot be part of German politics

The results hint at a dramatic changing attitude of the nation’s population towards the religion over the past year, which has seen the arrival of more than one million migrants.

In January, 37 per cent of people said Islam did have a place in Germany, but this has dropped to just 22 per cent, according to figures released by tabloid Bild.

Meanwhile 60 per cent of voters said “there is no place for Islam” in German politics.

Attitudes toward the religion appear to reflect fear of so-called Islamisation – with 46 per cent of Germans saying they were concerned their country would be taken over by proponents of political Islam.

It comes after Alternative for Germany (AfD) launched its election manifesto calling to ban the burka and claiming Islam is “not part of Germany”.The manifesto, entitled “Islam is not part of Germany”, was agreed in a vote of around 2,400 party members.The results come amid an increasingly fractious debate over radical Islamism in Germany, sparked by Angela Merkel’s ill-fated open door asylum policy.

This has pushed voters into the embrace of right-wingers like the anti-immigrant AfD party which scored big in regional elections in March and which now threatens Merkel’s CDU conservatives at the general election in the autumn of next year.

Shocking opinion polls delivered a crushing blow to the German Chancellor as it was revealed Merkel’s conservatives lost in two out of three state elections. Germans appear to be punishing her accommodative refugee policy.

AfD have called for the burka to be banned

AfD have grown in prominence since Merkel’s open-door refugee policy

More than 1.1 million migrants entered Germany last year, with most coming from Middle Eastern and North African countries.But Merkel’s grip on power is growing ever weaker, with rebellion across the country against her controversial immigration policies.She has consistently berated other EU states for introducing border controls to bring the migrant flow under control, ever since she made a pledge last summer to welcome all Syrians with open arms.

But growing cracks appeared and members of her own movement are beginning to openly question her stance on immigration following the horrific Cologne sex acts, forcing her to back down.

Entire Muslim communities threatening Christians in refugee camps

These churchmen are courageous enough to note this problem when most of their colleagues are encouraging it to grow larger. But what do they think will happen when these Muslim refugees are fully settled in Germany? Do they think they will stop persecuting Christians then? Europe is committing suicide before our eyes.

“Christian refugees are under threat from other asylum seekers, says German bishop,” Catholic Herald, February 19, 2016:

The Archbishop of Cologne has warned that Christian refugees are being threatened by other asylum seekers in refugee camps, according to a report in The Tablet.

Speaking at an ecumenical service in Dusseldorf last Saturday, Cardinal Rainer Woelki said: “Concern is growing that politicians and the authorities might not be taking such threats seriously enough. Christian persecution is not a topic of bygone ages,” he warned.

He said Germany must speak out more loudly for religious freedom rights, a right that Christians in Muslim countries also had. “That is what we demand,” Woelki said.

That kind of talk, if Woelki follows its logical progression, will lead him right into Islamic theology. It is virtually certain that he will not follow it that far.

Meanwhile, Gottfried Martens, a Protestant pastor told katholisch.de that the “mobbing” of Christian refugees in refugee camps in Germany was increasing.

He said it was no longer rare for entire Muslim communities in refugee shelters to threaten Christians.

He claimed that Christians had been forced to watch videos of beheadings, were barred from using the kitchen because they were “unclean” and had been beaten up and their crosses removed from their necks.

As a solution, he suggested accommodation Muslims and Christians separately. He said: “In our efforts to be tolerant, which are in themselves praiseworthy, we cannot just let Christians become some kind of guinea pigs.

I can hear Catholic bishops in Europe and the U.S. responding, “Oh, yes we can.”

“Whenever I talk to politicians, I’m told that the churches do not think that separate housing is necessary and I’m left looking stupid.”

Yes, the Church as a whole seems determined to ignore and deny the Muslim persecution of Christians.

Israeli Christians are now registered as Arameans not Arabs

dry bones cartoon arameans israelHooray!  Israel formally recognizes Israeli Christians as Arameans and not Christian Arabs, as they antedated the great waver of Islamic conquest that swept the region 1,400 years ago. Yet they survived as a distinct religious and linguistic minority.  This is a credit to Father Gabriel Naddaf, a Greek Orthodox Priest of Nazareth and current and former IDF Christian serving officers and enlisted personnel.

Financial Spots noted the change in Israel’s Population, Immigration and Border Authority (PIBA) in this brief article, “Israeli Christians Officially Recognized as Arameans, Not Arabs;”

Earlier this year, Israel took the first step in recognizing the nation’s Christians as an independent minority. Now, local Israeli Christians can register as a distinct ethnicity, as well. Lumped together with the Arab population for centuries, Israel’s Population, Immigration and Border Authority (PIBA) has been instructed to now recognize the bulk of the country’s Christians as Aramaeans, the actual ethnicity of most of the region’s Christians prior to the Arab Muslim conquest. “The existence of the Aramean nationality is clear and obvious,” wrote Interior Minister Gideon Saar in his official directive to the PIBA. Saar noted that local Aramean Christians have a distinct “historical heritage, religion, culture, descent and language” – all the conditions necessary to be recognized as a national or ethnic group. The change in the national registry will be by request for those Christians born into Christian families or clans and who can speak Aramaic.

In an Iconoclast post about IDF Christian personnel celebrating Christmas in December 2015, we wrote:

Father Gabrief Naddaf, a Greek Orthodox Priest from Nazareth refers to the 165,000 Arab Christians in Israel as Israeli Christians. We have followed his Zionist efforts urging Christians in Israel to volunteer for the IDF. He is the head of the The Israeli Christian Recruitment Forum. When founded in 2012 there were 40 Christian volunteers in the IDF. There years on there are now over 102. This past Monday he met with IDF Christian volunteers at a Forum sponsored Christmas party. Naddaf spoke at the UN Human Rights Council in September 2014 on behalf of UN Watch telling this questionable UN body dominated by Organization of Islamic Country members that “Israel is the only country in the Middle East where Christians are Safe.” In fact it is the only country in the Middle East where the Christian population is growing and has full rights of citizenship. As noted in this Breaking Israel News report:

While Christians are often persecuted for their religious beliefs in the Middle East, to the point of kidnapping and wholesale murder in the case of the Islamic State, Israel’s Christian population is free to worship as it wishes. It is also one of the best-educated populations in the country.

Kol hakavod to Father Gabriel Naddaf and Israel Christian now officially Arameans.

Islamic State Slaughters 14 in Christmas Day Attack

Boko Haram aligned itself with the Islamic State and changed its name to the Islamic State in West Africa last winter.

“At least 14 killed in Boko Haram Christmas day gun attack in Nigeria,” AFP, December 26, 2015 (thanks to John):

At least 14 people were killed and several others injured by Boko Haram gunmen in a Christmas Day attack on a village in northeastern Nigeria, vigilantes said on Saturday.

Attacking astride bicycles, the jihadists invaded Kimba village in flashpoint Borno state around 10:00pm on Friday, opening fire on residents and torching their homes.

“The gunmen killed 14 people and burnt the whole village before they fled,” Mustapha Karimbe, a civilian assisting the military in fighting Boko Haram, told AFP.

“Not a single house was spared in the arson,” another vigilante, Musa Suleiman, said after visiting the razed village.

Hundreds of Kimba residents fled to Biu nearby, where they were put up in a refugee camp already brimming with people running from Boko Haram.

The attack comes just days before Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari’s self-imposed deadline to stamp out the group expires on December 31 and in the same week he said that Nigeria has “technically” defeated the jihadists.

Buhari took office in May vowing to end the six-year insurgency that has killed over 17,000 people and spooked much-needed investors in Africa’s largest economy and foremost oil producer.

Nigerian troops have won back territory from Boko Haram, but in response the jihadists have increasingly resorted to suicide bombers – many of them young children – to wage war for an independent Islamic state.

The militants have damaged what little infrastructure existed in the country’s underdeveloped north at a time when the government is facing a cash crunch as a result of the free-falling oil price.

A week ago, Boko Haram killed 30 people and injured 20 others in raids on three villages near the home of the Nigerian army chief.

Raids on the Islamic militants’ camps near the border with Cameroon this week yielded women and children thought to have been held captive as well as 43 suspected enemy fighters and intelligence about bomb-making, Nigerian army says An estimated 2,000 women and children have been seized by Boko Haram since January 2014

The jihadists have allied themselves with the Islamic State group, but experts doubt the scale and scope of the collaboration….
