"Honor" Killing Ads in Canada Removed

Apparently wanting to protect girls from "honor" killing is racist.

http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/AtlasShrugs/~3/2ihYQ_-bPks/front-page-dhimmitude.html
“Honour killings is a very serious concern in every community and we need to speak up against it, but targeting one particular group, and singling out one particular group, does not help resolve it.
 What complete and utter crap. "Honor" murders are not taking place in EVERY community. It is almost exclusively the muslim community. That is why they are being singled out. The west has never had the problem of "honor" killings until the large influx of muslim immigrants. Why pretend this problem is universal when we all know otherwise?

Congress is Afraid of Confrontation With Iran

Israel is truly on its own and will have no choice but to bomb Iran. Even the Republican controlled House doesn’t want to increase sanctions for fear it will lead to conflict with Iran, let alone supporting more aggressive action.

‘Congress loves Israel, but is even more averse to another conflict’
Bob McNally, adviser on energy to former President George W. Bush: “There is a concern in Congress about tightening the sanctions so much that it would lead to a conflict” • Obama presses Senate to hold off on new sanctions to give Iran talks a chance.

Fresh U.S. sanctions over Iran’s disputed nuclear program being debated behind closed doors in the Senate aim to slash the country’s oil sales in half within a year of the plan being signed into law, an influential senator said this week.
Robert Menendez, the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, told a meeting of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) in New York on Monday that a package of sanctions ready to move in his chamber has a goal of cutting Iran’s current oil exports to no more than 500,000 barrels per day.
The reduction being sought is about 500,000 bpd less than a more severe bill passed by the House of Representatives in July, which aimed to slash exports to nearly zero.
The Senate bill, which has yet to be introduced by the banking committee, has been widely expected to be weaker than the House bill, which some analysts had said was not realistic.
Since the beginning of 2012, U.S. and European sanctions have already cut Iran’s oil exports to about 1 million bpd from about 2.5 million bpd, costing the Islamic Republic crude sales worth billions of dollars a month, and helping to spike inflation and unemployment.
But international talks over Iran’s nuclear program have revived after self-described moderate President Hassan Rouhani took office in August in Tehran. Rouhani and President Barack Obama talked by phone in September, the highest level contact between the two countries since 1979.
That has led some to hope that Iran could eventually win some relief from current U.S. sanctions.
Menendez said Iran must freeze and dismantle its nuclear program and demonstrate it is complying before sanctions are lifted.
“This is not the time to loosen sanctions,” Menendez told AIPAC, according to a copy of the speech that was seen by Reuters. Menendez said he had told members of the Obama administration he was ready to work with fellow senators to move a new package of sanctions if necessary.
The United States and its allies believe Iran is seeking the capacity to enrich enough uranium for a nuclear weapon. Iran says its nuclear program is strictly for peaceful purposes.
Menendez said the sanctions package would require China, India, South Korea, Turkey and Japan, Iran’s remaining oil customers, to further slash their purchases of Iranian crude and other petroleum products.

Aversion to conflict
Bob McNally, a White House adviser on energy to former President George W. Bush, Obama’s Republican predecessor, said the House bill was seen by many lawmakers as too aggressive.
“The only thing stronger than love for Israel in the Congress is aversion to another military conflict,” said McNally. “There is a concern in the Congress about tightening the sanctions so much that it would lead to a conflict.”
The plan mentioned by Menendez could still undergo big changes in the banking committee and before being passed by the full Senate, reconciled with the House, and signed into law by Obama.
The Obama administration has pressed the Senate to hold off on introducing new sanctions in order to give the talks a chance.
Secretary of State John Kerry and Secretary of Treasury Jack Lew are set to hold a secret meeting with senators on Thursday about progress of the talks. The United States, China, Russia, Great Britain, France and Germany, the so-called P5+1, are due to hold a second round of talks with Iran in Geneva on Nov 7-8.

French Antisemitism

The French and the Europeans in general are really disgusting. When are comedians going to do routines mocking islam and muslims? When are we going to see books and movies condemning islam and its hold on the world or complaints about being victimized by the muslim lobby? Even though muslim immigrants are outright destroying Europe through violent crime, welfare and creating a parallel society under sharia law, Europeans are attacking the Jews who are law-abiding, productive and peaceful. Europe hates the productive and successful and venerates the savage. The tiny Jewish state is contributing more in science, medicine and technology than Europe and the muslim world combined, yet Israel and Jews are the problem in the warped minds of the Europeans.

Orwellian EU Crackdown on Free Speech

Ironically, this law enforcing “tolerance” will protect the most intolerant ideology and people on earth from any scrutiny.
Israpundit:
EU Proposal to Monitor “Intolerant” Citizens
by Soeren Kern, GATESTONE INSTITUTE
“There is no need to be tolerant to the intolerant” — European Framework National Statute for the Promotion of Tolerance, Article 4
“The supra-national surveillance that it would imply would certainly be a dark day for European democracy.” — European Dignity Watch
While European leaders are busy expressing public indignation over reports of American espionage operations in the European Union, the European Parliament is quietly considering a proposal that calls for the direct surveillance of any EU citizen suspected of being “intolerant.”

Critics say the measure — which seeks to force the national governments of all 28 EU member states to establish “special administrative units” to monitor any individual or group expressing views that the self-appointed guardians of European multiculturalism deem to be “intolerant” — represents an unparalleled threat to free speech in a Europe where citizens are already regularly punished for expressing the “wrong” opinions, especially about Islam.
The proposed European Framework National Statute for the Promotion of Tolerance was recently presented to members of the Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs Committee of the European Parliament, the only directly-elected body of the European Union.
The policy proposal was drafted by the European Council on Tolerance and Reconciliation (ECTR), a non-governmental organization established in Paris in 2008 by the former president of Poland, Aleksander Kwasniewski, and the president of the European Jewish Congress, Moshe Kantor.
The ECTR — which describes itself as a “tolerance watchdog” that “prepares practical recommendations to governments and international organizations on improving interreligious and interethnic relations on the continent” — includes on its board more than a dozen prominent European politicians, including former Spanish Prime Minister José María Aznar.
The ECTR first presented its proposal for a Europe-wide Law on Tolerance to the European Parliament in November 2008 as part of the European Week of Tolerance that marked the 70th anniversary of theKristallnacht, a night of anti-Semitic violence that began the Jewish Holocaust in Germany.
After five years of lobbying in Europe’s halls of power, the ECTR proposal appears to be making headway, as evidenced by the European Parliament’s recent decision to give the group a prominent 45-minute time slot to present its proposal to the Civil Liberties committee onSeptember 17.
Also known as the “Model Statute for Tolerance,” the ECTR’s proposal was presented as part of the EU’s ongoing work towards a new “Equal Treatment Directive” (ETD) that would vastly expand the scope of discrimination to all sectors of life in both the public and private spheres.
Critics of the ETD, currently being negotiated within the Council of the European Union, say the directive seeks to establish an ill-conceived concept of “equal treatment” as a horizontal principle governing the relationships between all and everyone, thus interfering with the right of self-determination of all citizens.

The Death Knell of Western Civilization

Have the British gone mad? Liberals are ok with violation of human rights as long as it can be justified as part of the culture of muslims or non-western peoples. Sick.

This is the extent to which the left has conditioned westerners to moral relativism and to equally value all cultures and be non-judgemental.  We no longer see our own culture as morally superior. To believe so is to be regarded as "racist".  The notion of group rights over individual rights turns the foundation of our civilization on its head.

Londoners sign petition supporting Female Genital Mutilation because "it's part of their culture"

More from the "moderates" and the enlightened left.
This is the ultimate result of collectivist indoctrination. The individual gives way to the "group." The Left only talks about groups because to them the individual is an enemy defying the group (thanks to Armaros).
PC Madness: Londoners sign petition supporting Female Genital Mutilation because "it's part of their culture" Blazing Cat Fur

Approaching shoppers with the petition supporting FGM, she told them she wanted to protect her “culture, traditions and rights”.

In only 30 minutes 19 people signed it with some saying they believed FGM was wrong but because it was part of Ms Hussein’s culture they would add their names. Only one person refused to sign.

New NY Slimes Columnist is muslim Jew-hater

A perfect fit for the NY slimes.


New columnist for New York Times is anti-Israel conspiracist

Jamie Weinstein
Senior Editor

In addition to your daily dose of liberal invective, you will now get a monthly infusion of anti-Israel conspiracy on the New York Times opinion page.
Earlier this month, the New York Times announced that it had hired Egyptian novelist Alaa Al-Aswany to write a monthly column for the paper. But according to Egypt scholar Eric Trager of the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, Al-Aswany buys into the conspiratorial notion that a cabal of Jews controls American leaders.
Writing in the New Republic, Trager explains that Al-Aswany has been able to cultivate an image of himself in the West as an enlightened liberal who ardently opposed the dictatorial regime of former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak. But his more nefarious views have largely been hidden from the West’s view because Al-Aswany most often expresses them in Arabic, says Trager.

Jack Straw's Antisemitism

Perhaps this SOB, Jack Straw, is trying to deflect from the fact that his own government is controlled by the vast wealthy, powerful muslim lobby. After all, muslims greatly outnumber Jews in England and the rest of Europe and they have billions in petro dollars. 

Report: Former British Foreign Secretary peddles “Jewish control” trope in Parliament


857901_422525704516058_1669493659_o
A report from an ex-Member of the Israeli Knesset (Parliament) yesterday claimed that during a meeting in the British Houses of Parliament, former Foreign Secretary and Home Secretary Jack Straw (Lab) peddled an anti-Semitic trope about Jewish control over U.S. and Germany foreign policy.
The Rt. Hon. Jack Straw MP, who served as both Home Secretary and Foreign Secretary under Tony Blair, and as Secretary of State of Justice under Gordon Brown, is believed by former Labor Member for the Knesset Einat Wilf to have claimed that the greatest hurdle towards peace is the “unlimited” funding for “Jewish organisations”.
Straw also reportedly claimed that pro-Israel lobby groups such as AIPAC work with this “unlimited” funding to “divert American policy in the region” and stated that “Germany’s “obsession” with defending Israel” was a major problem.
Einat Wilf, who served as a Labor, the Independence Party Member of the Knesset between 2010 and 2013 wrote on her Facebook page: 
“I nearly fell off my rickety British chair today when former UK Foreign Secretary Jack Straw spoke at the Round Table Global Diplomatic Forum in the British House of Commons. Listing the greatest obstacles to peace, he said “unlimited” funds available to Jewish organizations and AIPAC in the US are used to control and divert American policy in the region and that Germany’s “obsession” with defending Israel were the problem. I guess he neglected to mention Jewish control of the media….”
The trope about Jewish money and control is recognised as anti-Semitism by EUMC Working Definition, which a part of states: “[Anti-Semitism is]… Making mendacious, dehumanizing, demonizing, or stereotypical allegations about Jews as such or the power of Jews as collective — such as, especially but not exclusively, the myth about a world Jewish conspiracy or of Jews controlling the media, economy, government or other societal institutions.”
Straw was recently featured in the international media expressing favourability towards the new Iranian president Hassan Rouhani. Straw has gone on the record in stating, “You could do business with him, and we were able to do business with him. I very profoundly believe that [this] is a new chance for proper negotiations.”
Straw’s maternal grandmother was from an Eastern European Jewish family, though his father was imprisoned in 1939 for opposing war with Nazi Germany. Both of Straw’s parents were “conscientious objectors” and met in the Peace Pledge Union – an organisation which favoured appeasement of Hitler.
Speaking on his time in the British cabinet, Straw said in 2009: “Clearly there were forces in the U.S. system that disagreed with my views on the Middle East and there were differences with Tony Blair’s Middle East policy, too.”
It is understood that Straw did not share the U.S. or Tony Blair’s passion for the war on terrorism.
Jack Straw’s office has not yet responded to questions on the matter.

Obama's Catastrophic Mideast Policies

More potential lethal consequences resulting from Obama's reckless Mideast policies. You can imagine the scandal this would have caused if it occurred under Bush. Yet we've heard nothing about this. Multiple Obama administration scandals and yet he walks away unscathed through it all.

Obama's #EpicFail Foreign Policy Fallout: U.S. weapons were ‘stolen, sold abroad’ to Muslim Brotherhood and Al Qaeda

More Obama fast and furious -- jihad style. The poisonous fruit of Obama's Libyan misadventure continues, and the enemedia viciously scrubs and spins. Arms running to jihad militias meet the black-hole of Benghazi ...... there is no accountability. And any patriot who asks for it is "seditious" or "treasonous."  America's cold civil war.
"More Libyan fallout: Intel finds advanced U.S. weapons were ‘stolen, sold abroad’ " Special to WorldTribune.com (thanks to Christian)
WASHINGTON — The U.S. intelligence community has concluded that a huge amount of weapons from Libya was transferred to Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood and Al Qaida-aligned militias.
Officials said the Brotherhood has acquired U.S. weapons and military equipment stolen from Libyan Army bases.
The officials said the equipment could include night-vision and even armored vehicles.
“All of the U.S. equipment brought in over the last few months has been stolen, and most of it was sold abroad,” an official said. “There is evidence that the Brotherhood has bought some of it.”
Officials said the Egyptian Defense Ministry has shared information with the U.S. Defense Department on American weapons captured in raids of Brotherhood and Al Qaida-aligned militias in the Sinai Peninsula and the African mainland. They said Egypt has found evidence that some of the insurgents were already using night-vision goggles for attacks on critical infrastructure, including the Suez Canal.  Continue

Chris Matthews Off His Meds Again

Crackpot Chris Matthews makes yet another off the wall accusation of "racism".  This guy is totally off his rocker.

MSNBC's Chris Matthews: Ted Cruz racist for saying it's great to be in America

On Monday, MSNBC's Chris Matthews falsely claimed Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, was making a racial slur when he told a crowd in San Antonio that it's great to be back in America after spending a month in Washington, D.C., Newsbusters reported.
"Having spent the past month up in D.C., it is really great to be back in America," Cruz said.
But Matthews, eager to foment hate and violence against Cruz, falsely claimed that Cruz was making a racial statement.
"Howard, this isn't a casual reference," he told Howard Fineman, editorial director of the Huffington Post. "This 'We're Americans, we white people out here in Texas, as opposed to people who live in the big cities: the ethnics, the blacks, the browns. Those people in Washington, those liberals, they're not Americans.'"
Apparently, Matthews doesn't understand the meaning of the word "joke."
Noel Sheppard observed that those in attendance at Cruz's gathering understood what Cruz said, laughed and applauded the statement.
A post at The Right Scoop noted that Cruz never mentioned anything about race, but that doesn't matter to Matthews, who apparently believes that everything is about race.
"If this isn’t Cruz Derangement Syndrome on steroids, I don’t know what is," the Right Scoop said.
For some time, Matthews has engaged in over-the-top rhetoric that is apparently designed to foment violence against Cruz.
The MSNBC propagandist, for example, falsely claimed Cruz wants an insurrection because he disagrees with Obama and opposes Obamacare -- as do millions of other Americans.
Throughout the 2012 campaign, Matthews engaged in a relentless campaign of hate, falsely claiming that practically every word uttered by a Republican had a racial tone.
Matthews' overheated rhetoric, along with Democratic Party messaging, has resulted in death threats being leveled at Cruz.
Instead of toning the rhetoric down, Matthews continues to pile on.
"Can you imagine how many members of Congress through the centuries have made a similar comment returning to their states or districts after weeks in our nation’s capital?" Sheppard asked. "Is that one sentence really something for liberal media members to get in a tizzy over?"
Apparently so, Sheppard added.
It's almost enough to make one think liberals like Chris Matthews really do want a second civil war in America.

muslims Slaughter Coptic Christians in Egypt

These are the savage monsters who Obama wants reinstalled to power in Egypt and is withholding military aid until the Egyptian military relinquishes power back to these muslim brotherhood savages.

"Egypt: gunmen target Coptic church" By Mary Abdelmassih AINA, October 20, 2013
Virginchurchattack

(AINA) -- Two unidentified gunmen riding motorcycles opened fire on guests exiting the Virgin Church, located in Warrag, Giza. The gunmen fired automatic weapons as the guests exited the church after attending a wedding ceremony.
According to Reverend Justus, the pastor of the church, one man, one women and one 8 year old girl were killed, and 18 were injured.
Reverend Justus said the gunmen were masked and were able to flee despite traffic congestion.
The Director of Giza Security formed a task force to find the gunmen. The Corniche Road leading to the area was evacuated. The attack is yet to be classified as "criminal" or "terrorist."
A youtube video (Arabic) shows scenes from the church after the attack.

Obama Will Allow Iran to Get Nukes

Their game being to publicly pretend that negotiations are on the verge of preventing Iran from getting nuclear weapons in order to make it politically untenable for Israel to use military force. That is the true and reprehensible purpose of these fake negotiations. But Israel must act anyway even at the cost of the "diplomatic hell" they will face.  Does Bibi have the backbone?

Iran Threatens the West as Obama Proposes Giving Iran Access to Billions in Long Frozen Assets

Despite the obvious fact that Iran has given no quarter, no indication that they were willing to suspend uranium enrichment, Obama rewarded them anyway, which has led to more  threats and more demands. Obama's response? He is weighing unfreezing Iran's assets. 
Iran now controls the nuclear fuel cycle and can build a bomb in a few months.
Iran’s parliament speaker is warning that too much pressure from the West during nuclear talks could force Iranian lawmakers to call for stepping up atomic work. The Blaze
The message from Ali Larijani follows appeals by some members of the U.S. Congress to tighten sanctions despite nuclear negotiations that began last week. It also appears to address concerns by hard-liners over possible Iranian concessions in efforts to ease sanctions by the U.S. and its allies
Larijani said Sunday parliament could have a voice in the “amount and diversity” of nuclear activities, suggesting it could urge expanded nuclear activity if the West shows a “double-standard and unjustifiable behavior.” He gave no further details in comments reported by the semiofficial Fars news agency.
Talks have focused on one key Iranian activity, uranium enrichment.

De Blasio A Catastrophe For NYC

New Yorkers reflexively vote democrat without actually examining what the candidate stands for. I don't know how such ingrained attitudes could be changed.  I don't know how Rudy ever won. We have come to the point where its more controversial to have ties to the Tea Party than to foreign communists and jihadists.

  • Text smaller
  • Text bigger
Bill de Blasio, the Democrat nominee for mayor of New York City, leads his Republican rival, Joseph J. Lhota, by more than 40 points, so he is virtually certain to be the next mayor. Now, 12 years after Sept. 11, when New Yorkers were literally throwing themselves out of a building attacked by jihadists, a terror-supporting Marxist is a shoo-in for Gracie Mansion.
It seems as if New York is a victim of Giuliani’s great success in preventing the continual pursuit of the jihad against the most desirable target of the Muslim world, New York City. Giuliani’s policies were followed, in a rare example of good sense, by his successor, Michael Bloomberg, in his unwavering support of Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly. De Blasio is living off the successes of Republican terror policies.

Read the rest
Bill de Blasio plans that he will not allow surveillance of jihadi suspects and terror mosques. This, although two New Yorkers were charged with plotting jihad terror attacks in the last week. And since Sept. 11, there have been plots against the Brooklyn Bridge, the subway system, the stock exchange, Citigroup headquarters, the Garment District, the PATH train, JFK airport, Long Island Railroad, synagogues in the Bronx and Manhattan, Times Square and more.
What’s de Blasio’s strategy? The Faisal Shahzad approach? Let’s just hope the bomb doesn’t go off? We see what happens when you cater to Islamic supremacist demands of removing jihad and counterterror programs. The Boston bombing – those people are dead because law enforcement didn’t pursue leads they received, out of fear of offending Muslims. That’s de Blasio’s plan.

Obama to Send Stolen Jewish Antiquities to Iraq

Yet another example of Obama spitefully sticking it to the Jews.


Jews fight US, Iraq, Obama over stolen Torahs

Military discovered trove of antiquities confiscated by Saddam Hussein
Jews worldwide are mobilizing to fight a plan by the U.S. National Archives under the Obama administration to hand over to the Muslim government in Iraq thousands of mostly priceless treasures, including ancient Torahs, that had been stolen by Saddam Hussein.
The historical items, labeled the Iraqi Jewish Archives, were taken from the soggy basements of dictator Saddam Hussein’s secret police headquarters when U.S. troops arrived there in 2003.
The Jews argue the items – including books, school records and rare editions of the Talmud – are their heritage, and there are no Jews left in Iraq.

The U.S. took custody, promising to return the items later.
The JWeekly, a newspaper serving the Jewish community in Northern California since 1896, reports that the Iraqi government at that time only had the Jewish artifacts because, “over several decades, successive regimes in Iraq systematically destroyed the country’s 2,500-year-old Jewish community and expropriated its property – right down to the last ancient prayerbook and Torah scroll.”
Iraq is the land where it is believed Abraham of Ur wandered, Jonah prophesied to Nineveh and Nebuchadnezzar ruled with an iron fist. But the New York Times reported only a few years ago that while 50 years ago Iraq’s Jewish population numbered 130,000, today there are virtually none.
“They cannot muster even a minyan, the 10 Jewish men required to perform some of the most important rituals of their faith. They are scared even to publicize their exact number, which was recently estimated at seven by the Jewish Agency for Israel and at eight by one Christian cleric.”
The Gatestone Institute reported not even a year ago on a conference for minority religions in Iraq. The institute expressed surprise “that there was not a single representative of Iraqi Jews to relate their glorious history, so full of great accomplishments for the glory of Iraq and its Constitution.”
The report, by Nabil Al-Hadairi, continued: “In their absence, they could not tell of the calamity that befell them when their citizenship was withdrawn, their money and property confiscated, their rights denied, and when they were subjected to being imprisoned or murdered while ethnic cleansing was committed by forcing the best of my Jewish friends to emigrate.”
He said Iraqi Jews “had been genuine citizens for thousands of years – even before Muslims and Christians.”
Jews made up a huge part of Baghdad’s population, he said, and by the 1920s they were 40 percent of the city’s people.
At IraqiJewishArchives.org, a report explains it was on May 6, 2003, just days after coalition forces took over Baghdad, “16 American soldiers entered Saddam Hussein’s flooded intelligence building. In the basement, under four feet of water, they found 2,700 books and tens of thousands of documents, in Hebrew, Arabic, Judeo-Arabic, and English relating to the Jewish community of Iraq – materials that had belonged to synagogues and Jewish organizations in Baghdad. The Iraqi Jewish Archive was shipped to the United States for preservation and exhibition, under the agreement that the U.S. State Department would ship the trove back to Iraq after an exhibition.”
The report said the U.S. spent $3 million restoring selected documents, including a 1568 Hebrew Bible with Commentaries, a Babylonian Talmud from 1793, a Torah scroll fragment from Genesis (one of 48 Torah scroll fragments found), and a Zohar from 1815. Those and others were scheduled to be displayed starting Oct. 11 in Washington.
The actual display was delayed by the partial government shutdown, but Jewish leaders are alarmed that after the exhibit, the items are scheduled to be handed over to the Islamic government in Iraq, even though “there is no Jewish community remaining in Iraq.”
It explains:
    The archive does not belong to Iraq, but was stolen from private homes, schools and synagogues in the 1970s. It is the cultural property of the Iraqi-Jewish community. According to Jewish law, sacred objects such as Torah scrolls must be entrusted to a living Jewish community. The Jewish community in Iraq is virtually extinct. Jews of Iraqi origin and their descendants now live outside Iraq – in Israel and the West.
    When there were Jews in Iraq, the modern Iraqi state showed only contempt for them and their heritage. It did its utmost to persecute and destroy its ancient, pre-Islamic Jewish community. From 140,000, the community has dwindled to five people. To return the archive to Iraq will be to compound a crime: returning stolen property to those who stole it. Iraq itself does not have the resources to conserve and store the archive safely. Iraq’s Jews and their descendants, 90 percent of whom are in Israel, will be debarred from access to original documents and history if the archive returns to Iraq. The memorandum drawn up between the US CPA interim government and Iraq in 2003 was signed on a flawed premise: that the archive is part of Iraq’s national heritage.
JWeekly reports Justice for Jews from Arab Countries and Jews Indigenous to the Middle East and Africa are running a campaign to regain control of the historical treasures.
Gina Waldman, executive director of JIMENA, told the weekly: “We hope the U.S. government will bar the return of the archives to Iraq, and do everything possible to [reach] a mutually agreeable, fair and just agreement so that the Iraqis are encouraged to hand the archives to the rightful Jewish owners.”
The weekly cited the sentiments of Stanley Urman, executive vice president of JJAC.
“[The artifacts] were seized from Jewish institutions, schools and the community. There is no justification or logic in sending these Jewish archives back to Iraq, a place that has virtually no Jews, no interest in Jewish heritage and no accessibility to Jewish scholars,” he said.
JIMENA board member Joseph Dabby told the weekly he believes he could be among the rightful owners. He was born in Baghdad in 1946 and suggested his school records may be among the archive’s documents.

Germany Demands Israel Stop Building in Their Own Country

Even after it was revealed that millions in EU aid to the PA was "lost", Germany turns right around and pledge millions more. It goes to show that Europe's Jew-hatred supersedes even its own economic self-interests.  Israel needs to tell Merkel it is none of her business where Israelis build in their own sovereign nation.  The last thing Germany should be doing is advocating the ethnic cleansing of Jews considering its own history.

"Germany urges settlement ‘restraint,’ pledges aid to PA" Times of Israel, October 15, 2013
Abbas meets with Merkel in Berlin, says Palestinians conducting talks with Israel ‘very earnestly’
Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel met with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas in Berlin Friday and called on Israel to restrain its settlement activities, which she said were jeopardizing the newly renewed peace talks with the Palestinians.
“That the Palestinians have halted their attempts to join further United Nations bodies is an up-front concession for these talks, and in the same measure we have appealed to Israel to restrain itself in extending settlements,” Merkel said in a joint press conference with Abbas after an hour-long meeting, according to AFP.
“I have repeatedly said that to Prime Minister [Benjamin] Netanyahu, since we ought not to imperil this consultation process,” she added.

Jews Denied Religious Rights on the Temple Mount

It is a national disgrace that the Jewish people are denied basic religious rights ON THEIR HOLIEST SITE IN THEIR OWN SUPPOSEDLY SOVEREIGN NATION. Just what did Israeli soldiers fight and die for in 1967 or ’48 for that matter? We are saddled with spineless Jewish “leaders” in Israel and the diaspora. Is there a single leader in the western world who will stand up to muslims?


Rights to the Temple Mount



By DAVID KIRSHENBAUM, JPOST
It is time the police start enforcing the most basic of religious rights, for Jews as well as Muslims.
In a democracy that prides itself on upholding free religious expression, incitement, intimidation and the use of deadly violence to prevent such free expression should not be tolerated, and certainly not rewarded. It shouldn’t matter whether the violence is engaged in by members of the majority religion or by members of a religious minority.
Sadly, this principle is not followed in the State of Israel.

Judaism’s holiest site for over 3,000 years has been the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. It is on the Temple Mount that both the First and Second Temples stood, where millions of Jews from all over the Israel and the Diaspora made the three Festival Pilgrimages and where, according to Jewish belief, the Third Temple, ushering in the days of the Messiah, is destined to be built. Throughout history, wherever Jews were engaged in prayer, they faced Jerusalem. And in Jerusalem, they pray in the direction of the Temple Mount.
Yet, even though the State of Israel is in full control of Jerusalem, Jews, Christians and all non-Muslims are forbidden entry to the Temple Mount, except during very limited hours. And during those few hours, Jews can only walk in near silence; they may not pray.
A member of the Wakf, the Muslim religious council, monitors the movements of Jewish visitors, and the Israel Police will arrest any Jew upon a complaint by a Wakf member that a Jew was praying on the Temple Mount.
This happened to me and my daughter when we visited the Temple Mount the day before her wedding.
Her swaying in silent meditation was enough to anger our Wakf monitor and land us in the police station for hours for threatening the public welfare.
Any discussion of changing this woeful crushing of religious freedom elicits threats of severe violence from the Wakf, Arab Knesset members and the Islamic Movement in Israel. This incitement works wonders, as Israeli law enforcement officials regularly cite these threats in defending their discriminatory treatment of Jews on the Temple Mount.
During Jewish holiday periods, the level of incitement is raised, often accompanied by the hurling of blocks of stone at Jews on the Temple Mount and at Jewish worshipers in the Western Wall Plaza.
This pattern repeated itself during the this past Succot.
Israeli police responded in the way they always do: They did not stand up to the violent lawbreakers and protect the basic religious rights of law-abiding Jews. Nor did they take the less challenging but less equitable option of closing down the Temple Mount to all.
While this would have unfairly punished Jewish worshipers, including Muslims in the ban might have at least served as a deterrence to future violence.
Some price would have been paid by the perpetrators of religious terror.
Instead, the police took the path that requires the least work, elicits the least resistance, and results in the greatest inequity. On three of the Festival days, police closed the Temple Mount, not to Muslims, but only to Jews and other non-Muslims. Hate and violence were rewarded.
On a recent post-Succot visit to the Temple Mount – I was one of those turned away during the holiday – the group of Jews I was with had to wait an hour until we were allowed in. The police felt unable to deal with more than 25 identifiably Jewish visitors at a time. While we waited for police approval, hundreds of tourists, mostly from Europe, flowed in without a problem.
When we finally entered, we were immediately greeted by taunting screams from tens of Arab women. The harassment of Jewish visitors to the Temple Mount is part of their daily routine. Our group was led by Rabbi Yisrael Ariel, a member of the battalion of Paratroopers that liberated the Old City and the Temple Mount in the Six Day War.
Almost immediately, and frequently during the visit, Rabbi Ariel was spoken to rudely by the police, who didn’t like where he was standing or how fast or slow he was moving. At the end of the visit, as were exiting, Rabbi Ariel, who is 74 and battling cancer, was arrested and roughed up in the process.
What enraged the police and the Wakf was that Rabbi Ariel purportedly bowed down in a form of prayer.
The fear that the police have of the Arabs on the Temple Mount is palpable. When we were verbally assaulted by the Arabs upon our entry, the police made not the slightest effort to quiet them, this in marked distinction from their immediate and angry silencing of any form of Jewish prayer. Rather, their response was to quickly move us past the hateful bigots. And when we were again cursed near the end of our visit, the sole and frightened response of the police was to ask us to leave.
It is time the police start enforcing the most basic of religious rights, for Jews as well as Muslims, that our law enforcement authorities cease cowering in the face of Arab violence and stop their shameful hiding behind Muslim religious terror as an excuse for their failure to uphold the law.

Communist to Become NYC Mayor?

That an outright communist like De Blasio has such a tremendous lead shows how little voters actually pay attention to what the candidates stand for. This is how Obama got in. Or New Yorkers just blindly vote democrat. I don't know how Guiliani ever won. The Democrat primary in NYC had a choice between a pervert and a communist.

Atlas:

Communists Defend Democrat NYC Mayoral Candidate
Bill de Blasio, the Obama-backed Democrat “progressive” poised to become New York City’s mayor, is under attack by “Rupert Murdoch’s tabloid empire,” his supporters are charging. It’s a reference to the New York Post examining the candidate’s ties to the Nicaraguan Solidarity Network, a Communist-front organization that still supports the Marxist regime in Nicaragua headed by Communist Sandinista Daniel Ortega.
 In fact, however, it was The New York Times that originally disclosed de Blasio’s fondness for the “foreign revolution” in Nicaragua, in a major piece that shocked even some liberals. The Times article revealed de Blasio’s pro-communist activities and his prediction back in 1991 that Islam would become a major political force.   Read the rest

Ax-wielding "palestinian" muslims Attack Jewish Couple, Hack Husband to Death

Israel is pressured to surrender land to these murdering savages.

Five Palestinians arrested for Jordan Valley killing" Times of Israel

Housing minister says he will bolster settlement after retired IDF colonel Seraiah Ofer bludgeoned to death outside home by ax-wielding attackers
 Five Palestinians were arrested Friday in connection with a suspected terror attack in the northern Jordan Valley in which a retired IDF colonel was bludgeoned to death overnight. The arrests came after several hours of searches and roadblocks by security forces in the area, following the early-morning killing.
IDF Chief Benny Gantz called the attack “serious” and President Shimon Peres said “no one will rest” until the perpetrators were caught.
Officials initially said they were not sure whether the attack was nationalistically motivated or criminal in nature. However, police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said, “We strongly believe this was a terror attack.”
Seraiah Ofer, 61, was beaten to death by men wielding metal bars and axes outside his home in the Brosh Habika vacation village, which he owned and operated, at about 1 a.m. Friday.
His wife, Monique Mor, 51, managed to escape. She was lightly injured on barbed wire before reaching a nearby highway, where she flagged down a car for help.
The attack, coming on the heels of a number of isolated incidents over the past month, drew harsh responses from politicians.
Housing and Construction Minister Uri Ariel, from the nationalist Jewish Home party, said in a statement Friday morning he would work to “enlarge and strengthen” settlement in the area.
“This is the proper Zionist response to a revolting murder,” Ariel said.

Antisemite Miley Cyrus

Not only is bimbo Miley Cyrus a filthy slut with zero talent, but it turns out she is an anti-Semite as well.

Miley Cyrus: I Won't Take Advice From a '70 Year Old Jewish Man'

"With magazines, with movies, it’s always weird when things are targeted for young people yet they’re driven by people that are like 40 years too old. It can’t be like this 70 year old Jewish man that doesn’t leave his desk all day, telling me what the clubs want to hear."
So oddly said Miley Cyrus in an interview with Hunger TV Wednesday:
HUNGER TV: HOW DOES IT FEEL TO BE BASICALLY THE MOST FAMOUS WOMAN IN THE WORLD RIGHT NOW?
MILEY CYRUS: It feels pretty sick. Only because like I said I have been gone for a few years, where I wasn’t doing anything and I wasn’t working. So now it feels like all that work in the studio did pay off. And I had so many times where I had to tell people like, “Yo, just trust me, I’m telling you with this ‘Can’t Stop’ video this is going make people watch” or with ‘Wrecking Ball’ saying, “this is going to make people go crazy.” And once I did ‘Can’t Stop’ that’s when people really started trusting me. At first on paper that video sounded insane, no one understood it and I’m just like, “let me film it and then if it doesn’t work out you never have to trust me again but if it works out you have to let me drive this ship, you know I’m on to something.” And then they call me and they’re like “yo, you’re onto something!”
You know me and Rankin were talking about it. With magazines, with movies, it’s always weird when things are targeted for young people yet they’re driven by people that are like 40 years too old. It can’t be like this 70 year old Jewish man that doesn’t leave his desk all day, telling me what the clubs want to hear. I’m going out, I know what they want to hear. I know when you’re in a club, what makes everyone go crazy and when the time is where everyone’s like “alright I’m going go get a drink”. I know when people walk off the dance floor and I know what’s driving it so I’ve got to be the one doing it because they’re just not in on what 20 year olds are doing.
