First known Canadian Muslim waxed waging jihad in Syria

Thank Obama in part for legitimizing the Syrian jihadists. via Blazing Cat Fur: First Canadian to be killed in the jihad fields of Syria.
The civil war in Syria appeals to young Muslims from many countries including the West, wishing to join the ranks of Jihad (holy war) as part of the rebel forces in Syria, most of which are identified with radical Islamic streams.
Canadian citizens have also enlisted with the Syrian rebels. One of these Canadians was killed recently in fighting against forces of the Syrian regime in the environs of the capital Damascus. Jamal Mohamed Abd al-Kader was born and raised in Canada, a member of a Kurdish family originally from the village of Juka near Afrin in north east Syria.

Thrown in Prison for Shredding the Koran

ANDREW E. HARROD March 15, 2013
A Bruges, Belgium criminal court convicted a man for shredding a Koran on March 6, 2013.  The court imposed a four-month prison sentence and a 600 euro fine upon him.  He now additionally faces a revocation of a previous suspension of an 18-month prison sentence for having set a fire in a wood.  This case highlights yet again the greater restrictions on speech in free societies outside of the United States and how these restrictions can limit open debate about Islam.

One Small Step for Media Accuracy on Israel

Dovid Efune
This week, two vicious, accusatory and vastly damaging media reports about Israel were publicly exposed to be false. As is often the case, one correction drew little attention. The other however made international headlines which I believe should be cause for measured optimism.
The first story was published by Israel’s Haaretz, a newspaper that has distinguished itself in its eagerness to paint the government of the Jewish state as practitioners of racism and apartheid. Haaretz has displayed blatant disregard for accuracy in its frenzied pursuit of this agenda as evidenced in this particular case.
“A government official has for the first time acknowledged the practice of injecting women of Ethiopian origin with the long-acting contraceptive Depo-Provera,” opens the Haaretz report, which first appeared in the paper’s English edition on January 28th.
Citing a letter which was sent from Health Ministry Director General Prof. Ron Gamzu to four health maintenance organizations, Haaretz claims that he asked them “not to renew prescriptions for Depo-Provera for women of Ethiopian origin if for any reason there is concern that they might not understand the ramifications of the treatment.”

How Small is Israel? So Small You Can Run it in 9 Days

As Obama and his entourage prepare to descend on Israel demanding more territorial concessions for terrorists, it may be time for a reminder of how small Israel really is.
Marc Hendel, a south Florida native and recent graduate of Washington University in St. Louis, will soon attempt to become the first American to run the full length of Israel in nine days – from Rosh HaNikra, near the Lebanon border, to Eilat, the Red Sea port at Israel’s southernmost tip. Hendel is running to raise money and awareness for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Eastern Missouri and for Youth Futures, a Jewish Agency for Israel-sponsored mentorship program that assists at-risk children throughout the Jewish state.
The 23-year-old will begin his nine-day, 470-kilometer Strengthening Bonds Run on Tuesday, March 12.

Mike Huckabee addressing Barack Obama

Gov. Mike Huckabee’s Message to President Obama on his upcoming Visit to Israel
Excerpted from a Keynote Address at Gush Katif Museum Dinner
Razag Ballroom, Brooklyn NY
March 9, 2013
Well, first let me say thanks for the wonderful frank reminder of Gush Katif. (a group of Israeli communities in the Gaza Strip deliberately destroyed by Arik Sharon while giving all of Gaza to the Arabs in a self-serving gesture of insanity for which Sharon was visited with a devastating stroke and now remains maintained, for some questionable reason, in a permanent vegetative state – jsk)
It has been a delight getting to share a fellowship with you, to share a mutual passion with you, for the protection of the security of Israel. And I was asked earlier, “Why would a Goy, a Christian, be interested in Israel?” Sometimes I feel that my passion for the goodness of Israel, maybe exceeds even my Jewish friends – and I tell people, I say, “you have to understand – It is entirely possible to be Jewish and not have a complete relationship to Christians – but it is impossible to be Christian and not have a complete relationship with Judaism – because it is in fact the foundation upon which every Christian believes and every Christian understands – that Israel is G-d’s Chosen Land! And we recognize that, and respect it and understand that the Nations Who Bless Israel Will Be Blessed And Those Who Curse Israel Will Be Cursed!

Student Who Taped Dutch Muslim Youths Praising Hitler Forced Into Hiding


Zach Pontz

The Dutch doctoral student who was seen in a controversial video trying to reeducate Dutch-Turkish youths has been forced into hiding after receiving death threats.
The Dutch daily NRC writes that Mehmet Sahin has gone into hiding with his family on the advice of the mayor of Arnhem, Pauline Krikke.
Last week a video surfaced of Sahin interviewing several Muslim youths in Holland. During the interview the youths spewed vitriol at Jews and praised Hitler, with one of the boys saying,  “As far as I’m concerned Hitler should have killed all Jews.” The youths also displayed an alarming lack of knowledge about their subject, with one boy saying that “millions of Palestinians are being killed.”
Dutch Labor Party parliamentarian Ahmed Marcouch said that he will ask parliamentary questions about the threats. He remarked: “It is horrible that someone has to be afraid because he has done something that we all should do – teach children not to hate.”

Positive article about "settler and peace activist" in official PA daily

Official PA daily:
"He was the Rabbi of the Tekoa settlement... worked vigorously towards a peaceful solution for the Israeli-Palestinian conflict... founder of the peace movement, 'Land of Peace,' whose members are both settlers and Palestinians."
by Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik
Rabbi Menachem Froman of the Israeli town of Tekoa in the West Bank passed away a week ago. The Palestinian Authority daily newspaper seldom prints positive articles about Israelis and almost never portrays those they call "settlers" in a positive light. However, the PA daily recently published a very positive article on its front page about Rabbi Menachem Froman and his efforts to promote peace between Israelis and Palestinians. The article was originally published by Agence France-Presse.
In 2010, the official PA daily reported on a solidarity visit by Rabbi Froman to mosques in the West Bank.

‘Killing Jews Is Worship’ Ad Campaign Rolled Out On SF Muni Buses

Poeple so not realize that Koranic genocidal Jew-hate is part of the Islam book and is still taught today. 

‘Killing Jews Is Worship’ Ad Campaign Rolled Out On SF Muni Buses

SAN FRANCISCO (KPIX 5) – A controversy has been re-ignited this week as ten new ads go up on San Francisco Muni buses containing quotes used by terrorists.
“Killing Jews is worship that draws us closer to Allah,” reads one of the ads, which has people debating the line between free speech and hate speech.
“The purpose of our campaign is to show the reality of Jihad, the root causes of terrorism. Using the exact quotes and text that they use,” said Pamela Geller of the American Freedom Defense Institute.
Several San Francisco city leaders, including District Attorney George Gascon, have condemned the campaign.
“San Francisco won’t tolerate Islamophobic bigotry,” said Gascon. “The only thing necessary for evil to prevail is for good people to look the other way and do nothing.”
Board of Supervisors President David Chiu said the American Freedom Defense Initiative is made of “well-known hate extremists” and said he is introducing a resolution at Tuesday’s board meeting to denounce the ads.

Syrian Druze: Toward Defiant Neutrality

by Gary C. Gambill
Foreign Policy Research Institute
March 2013

Syria's Druze community once played a major role in shaping the country's modern history, despite comprising a mere three percent of the population. Today, however, this enigmatic highland minority that seldom met an anti-government revolt it didn't like finds itself precariously accommodating a dying regime as a gathering rebel alliance slowly moves in for the kill. Though a handful of Druze can be found fighting (and dying) with the rebels, the large majority of the few who have taken up arms in this conflict have done so for the other side.

When Race Hatred Meets Class Hatred

he desire of intellectuals for some grand theory that will explain complex patterns with some solitary and simple factor has produced many ideas that do not stand up under scrutiny, but which have nevertheless had widespread acceptance — and sometimes catastrophic consequences — in countries around the world.
The theory of genetic determinism which dominated the early 20th century led to many harmful consequences, ranging from racial segregation and discrimination up to and including the Holocaust. The currently prevailing theory is that malice of one sort or another explains group differences in outcomes. Whether the lethal results of this theory would add up to as many murders as in the Holocaust is a question whose answer would require a detailed study of the history of lethal outbursts against groups hated for their success.

Muslim Terrorist Wannabe’s Jewish Lawyer Seeks to Bar Jews from Jury

 Jewish Press

Frederick H. Cohn, New York lawyer for Abdel Hameed Shehadeh, recently said in court that he wants to exclude Jews from the jury that will hear Shehadeh’s case.

Shehadeh, 24, has been charged with lying about his alleged attempt to join the Taliban or other terrorist organization in Pakistan in 2008, and that he attempted to conceal the fact that he had traveled to Pakistan, when he later attempted to join the U.S. military.

The Not-Bluffing Bluff

Iran gains more time to build nuclear weapons while the U.S. makes more concessions.
Joe Biden got a rousing reception in Washington on Monday at the annual conference of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, especially when he talked about the Administration's approach to Iran. America's policy, he said, "is to prevent Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon, period." To underscore the point, he added that "President Barack Obama is not bluffing. He is not bluffing."
We've heard this kind of talk from the Administration for over a year now, and maybe they even mean it. But the audience Mr. Biden and his boss really need to reach is not at Aipac. It's in Tehran. And so far, the mullahs show every sign of thinking the U.S. is, in fact, bluffing.
That much was made clear Tuesday when General James Mattis, the blunt-spoken Marine in charge of U.S. Central Command, testified to the Senate Armed Services Committee. "Are the current diplomatic and economic efforts to stop Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapons capability, are they working?" asked Oklahoma Republican Jim Inhofe.
"No sir," the general replied. The evidence, he noted later in his testimony, was that Tehran's "nuclear industry continues."

Netanyahu Sings Praise of Rabbi Druckman, Religious Zionism

Gil Ronen & Yoni Kempinski Netanyahu Sings Praise of Religious Zionism

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu delivered a heartfelt tribute to Rabbi Haim Druckman, venerated spiritual leader of the religious Zionist stream, at an evening Sunday honoring Rabbi Druckman upon reaching the age of 80.

Netanyahu tore up the speech he had prepared and delivered an improvised version of it instead. "You know," he quipped, "in my family, reaching the age of 80 is not something to write home about... and you have a long road full of great deeds ahead of you."

Netanyahu played on the word 'gvurot' – courage – which is used in Judaism to refer to the age of 80.

"I would like to speak of your courageous virtues," he said, "three of them, and the first is here in the hall and outside it."

A misconception about Pollard

GREER FAY CASHMAN  - The Jerusalem Post
One of the reasons for a certain degree of complacency about the eventual 
release from prison of convicted spy Jonathan Pollard is that many believe 
that his freedom will be automatic once he has served 30 years. (Pollard 
began his 28th year in jail on November 21, 2012.) But that is not the case, 
former US secretary of defense Dr. Lawrence J. Korb, who has been one of the 
leading activists on Pollard’s behalf, said when asked about this at the 
Jerusalem Press Club this week. Pollard has to apply for parole, but his 
lawyers are not being given access to all the government files pertaining to 
his case.
Korb became interested in the Pollard affair after receiving a letter from 
Pollard’s father. He subsequently visited Pollard in prison and all the 
things that Pollard told him were later corroborated by the CIA.

Chechnya builds ‘2nd-largest mosque’ in Israel after Al-Aqsa

Russia’s Chechen Republic is funding the construction of a mosque which it claims will be the second-largest in Israel after the famous Al-Aqsa. It will be located just 10 km from Jerusalem and hold several thousands of worshippers at a time.
The location of the mosque is the Abu Ghosh village, which is partially populated by ethnic Chechens.
Construction is already underway. The mosque is being built on a street named after ex-Chechen President Akhmad Kadyrov, who was assassinated in 2004. The mosque will also be named after the deceased president, the father of the republic's present leader, Ramzan Kadyrov.
