Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday criticized the international community for negotiating with Iran while taking no steps to curb its sponsorship of global terrorism, as top American and Iranian diplomats attempted to hammer out a deal in Geneva.

Speaking at the weekly cabinet meeting, the prime minister said that it was “astonishing that even after the recent IAEA report determined that Iran is continuing to hide the military components of its nuclear program, the nuclear talks are proceeding.”

 
Terror Strikes Copenhagen "It Is the Danes' Fault"

By Lars Hedegaard

The first question the Danish Prime Minister got from one of the journalists, was, "How do you think this is going to affect the Muslims in Denmark? None of the journalists asked, "What are you going to do to protect us from this Islamist savagery?"

Imam Hajj Saeed of the Al-Faruq Mosque in Copenhagen, the day before the terror attack, rejected any thought of interfaith dialogue, and noted that the Prophet Muhammad waged war against his Jewish neighbors rather than engage in dialogue.

The day after the shootings, the political spokesperson of the main liberal opposition party went on television and said, "We are dealing with a small group that is abusing the Koran." In other words, once again we are faced with one or more Muslims who have completely misunderstood their own religion. The implication, of course is that Danes have nothing to fear from the fast growing number of Muslims or the spread of Islam.

 
Variation on the Bird-Jew Theme

ImageShalom Aleichem: Although realizing he’s about to be put to death anyway, the bird-Jew played along with his executioner

In his autobiography, legendary Yiddish author Shalom Aleichem recounts a harrowing story his grandfather had told him about “the bird-Jew.”

That was how the grandfather called Noah, a pious Jewish innkeeper who lived in constant dread of his Russian landlord, the village squire. Trembling, Noah headed for the manor to renew his lease. His timing was off, because the courtyard was full of festive guests ready to go hunting.

The squire, in a jovial mood, agreed to extend the agreement if Noah would climb the stable roof and pretend to be a bird – so he can shoot him. Fearful of angering the nobleman, Noah obsequiously did his bidding. He clambered up as ordered, bent forward, flung his arms sideways and assumed a birdlike pose. At that instant the squire fired and Noah fell, as any slain bird would.

Although realizing he’s about to be put to death anyway, the bird-Jew played along with his executioner, still absurdly terrified of what might happen if he didn’t. This is the cringing mentality, the fear of giving offense to one’s mortal enemies, which Zionism was established to eradicate.

But not with full success, it seems.

You can take the Jew out of the Diaspora, but not all the Diaspora out of all Jews. Israel’s Left and its media mouthpieces are prime examples. To hear them, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has unpardonably angered the nobleman from the Oval Office. It was Netanyahu’s duty to obediently assume the role of the bird-Jew and self-destruct to appease his boss.

 
Copenhagen Jews shaken, not surprised, by attack they’d feared was coming

Fatal shooting came as 80 people were celebrating bat-mitzvah at synagogue; slain guard Dan Uzan was ‘a loyal friend’ and hero

ImageDenmark’s shaken Jewish community on Sunday grappled with the morning attack on a Copenhagen synagogue that killed a security guard who was a beloved member of the community, with some saying they anticipated an attack of this kind for some time.

“People are shocked, but not surprised. People thought this kind of thing would come to Denmark and even the synagogue,” Adam Melchior, a member of Copenhagen’s Jewish community, told The Times of Israel.

“They knew there was a possibility that this would happen,” Melchior said, explaining that a community crisis response team was set up before the attack.

There are an estimated 6,000 to 7,000 Jews in Denmark, including about 2,000 active members of the Jewish community. The community had voiced complaints that the threat of anti-Semitism was getting increasingly more widespread — particularly from elements within the country’s Muslim population.

 
The Crusades Aren't Our Problem

By Sarah Honig

Last week, at Washington’s annual National Prayer Breakfast, US President Barak Obama admonished us all lest “we get on our high horse and think that this [religious fanaticism] is unique to some other place – remember that during the Crusades and Inquisition, people committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ … So, it is not unique to one group or one religion.”

This presidential platitude looks innocuous enough except that it’s deceptively simplistic. For one thing it casually glosses over the fact that the crimes it alludes to aren’t contemporaneous.

I am the last who’d seek to whitewash the Christian record. I hazard a guess that my family line was affected way more by Christian brutality than were any of Barack Obama’s ancestors. (Even if we accept his thesis that slavery in the American South and its Jim Crow laws were imposed in the name of Christ, none of Obama’s forebears suffered therefrom).

But one quick glance at my uniquely long genealogical chart will show many names accompanied by the notation “killed for Kiddush Hashem” – the sanctification of the Holy Name – Jewish euphemism for martyrdom.

Some of my ancestors were executed by Christian persecutors because they resisted attempts to convert them forcibly. Others were massacred by their frenzied Christian neighbors and rampaging Crusaders who hacked them to death in their own homes. The most seminal early mega-trauma registered on our family tree occurred during the First Crusade of 1096, when the Rhineland Jewish communities of Speyer, Worms and Mainz were destroyed in a homicidal tempest.

Peter the Hermit of Amiens and Count Emich of Leiningen exhorted the masses to slaughter the Jews as an extension of their Christian mission. They vilified the Jews as the crucifers of Christ and these helpless heretics were available for immediate retribution – in contrast to the hardly vulnerable, hardly peace-loving, hardly non-aggressive, hardly blameless and more distant Muslims. Besides, robbing the Jews also served to fill Christian coffers and finance the onward march to Jerusalem.

 
Family of Isis hostage Kayla Mueller confirms aid worker has been killed

Family ‘heartbroken’ after receiving confirmation that 26-year-old aid worker held hostage since August 2013 has been killed

ImageThe family of Kayla Mueller, the 26-year-old aid worker held hostage by Isis since August 2013, has confirmed in a statement that she has been killed.

“We are heartbroken to share that we’ve received confirmation that Kayla Jean Mueller, has lost her life,” her parents and brother said on Tuesday.

Supporters of Islamic State had claimed on Friday that she was killed in a Jordanian air strike intended to avenge the burning to death of a captured Jordanian pilot. US officials could not determine her cause of death.

The National Security Council spokeswoman, Bernadette Meehan, said that over the weekend, the family received a private message from Mueller’s captors containing “additional information”.

 
Jordan vows to ‘eradicate’ Islamic State

FM Nasser Judeh says government is ‘upping the ante'; thousands take to streets in Amman to decry burning murder of pilot

ImageAMMAN, Jordan (AFP) — Jordan vowed further retaliation against the Islamic State group for the burning alive of one of its pilots, as thousands rallied in Amman Friday in solidarity with his grieving family.

The Jordanian military said “dozens of jet fighters” struck IS targets on Thursday, hitting training camps as well as weapons and ammunition depots.

Foreign Minister Nasser Judeh told CNN the operation was “the beginning of our retaliation over this horrific and brutal murder of our brave young pilot.”

IS earlier this week released a highly choreographed video of the horrifying murder of pilot Mu’ath al-Kaseasbeh, whose death has sparked grief and deep anger in Jordan.

 
22 minutes of sickening savagery:

Carefully edited and highly choreographed footage that ISIS knows will horrify the West - and entice even more jihadists to their cause

20-minute clip contains cinematic dimension never before seen from ISIS
Video features Hollywood-style graphics, sound editing and camera angles
Titled Healing the Believers' Chests - said to mean 'giving them pleasure'
ISIS considers pilot responsible for burning babies in airstrikes in Syria
Now they have burnt him alive in scenes that are too shocking to show

ImageEven by the Islamic State's barbaric standards, the terror group's latest execution video has reached a truly depraved new low.

The footage shows Jordanian pilot Moaz al-Kasasbeh being burnt alive in scenes that are far too shocking to even consider publishing.

As with previous beheading videos featuring British executioner Jihadi John, the 20-minute-long clip is characterised by its slick production values and graphics.

 
Three French soldiers stabbed during patrol outside Jewish community centre

Shares last name with Paris terrorist, but it is a common name
One man who stabbed the soldiers is detained, two others flee

ImageThe man who stabbed three soldiers outside a Jewish community centre in Nice today, was apprehended in Turkey last week while en-route to join ISIS, authorities believe.

Moussa Coulibaly, 30, was arrested at Istanbul airport and deported back to France after border control became suspicious, a security source has said.

His shares the last name of Amedy Coulibaly, who took hostages in a kosher supermarket in Paris and gunned down a policewoman last month.

The surname is relatively common among families of Malian descent, but anti-terrorist police have confirmed they are 'investigating a link' between the pair.

 
Why Is Hamas Smiling?

By Khaled Abu Toameh
Gatestone Institute
January 30, 2015


In 2007, Abbas lost the Gaza Strip to Hamas. Now he seems to be losing the Gaza Strip to his rivals in Fatah. Many of his former Fatah supporters have turned against him.

The last thing the Palestinians and the international community want is another Syria or Libya or Yemen in the Middle East.

This is not a fight about rebuilding Gaza, or reforms, democracy or building a better future for Palestinians. This is not a fight between good guys and bad guys. Rather, this is a fight between bad guys and bad guys -- and it is all over money, ego and power.

The Palestinian Fatah faction, whose leaders are supposed to be working toward preparing Palestinians for an independent Palestinian state, is currently embroiled in a bitter and violent power struggle between Palestinian Authority [PA] President Mahmoud Abbas and his major rival, Mohamed Dahlan.

This is a power struggle, however, that casts doubts on Fatah's preparedness to establish a Palestinian state in the West Bank, Gaza Strip and east Jerusalem.

 
Is Israel Guilty of War Crimes?

By Denis MacEoin
Gatestone Institute
January 29, 2015


Can the International Criminal Court [ICC] even be considered an impartial legal body, any more than a Jim Crow court in America's old South?

The supporters of this repackaged anti-Semitism always seem perfectly comfortable "forgetting" that Hamas offers its people no human rights. Thus is a liberal democracy, Israel, maligned by a theocratic tyranny.

It is clear that these illustrious members of the international community are secretly hoping that if they can rig the system so that the Arabs can finish off Israel, they, in the international community, will still be able to preen and congratulate themselves that the obliteration of the Jewish state had nothing to do with them.

Groups such as al-Qaeda, the Islamic State, Hizbullah or Hamas are considered terrorists because they do not abide by the principles of international or domestic law. That, as well as the acts they commit, is what identifies them as terrorists. The differentiating factor with Islamist terror organizations is that they do not recognize international law at all.

 
Hamas-Supporting MB Figures Meet With Congress, State Dept.

ImageA delegation including senior exiled members of Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood and two people with a history of open support for Hamas lobbied senators Wednesday.

The delegation requested a meeting with several senators, a Senate source told the Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT).

The delegation sought help in restoring former President Mohamed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood to power in Egypt. Morsi-era parliamentarians, government ministers and judges formed the Egyptian Revolutionary Council in Istanbul, Turkey last August with the aim of toppling Egypt's military government. It is based in Geneva, Switzerland.

The delegation arrived in Washington Monday and will leave Thursday, according to a brief provided to the Senate offices. A Facebook post Wednesday by former Egyptian Judge Waleed Sharaby showed him alongside fellow delegation members on Capitol Hill.

 
THE WRONG END OF A MUNICIPAL DRAIN-PIPE

By Sarah Honig
The Jerusalem Post
January 30, 2015


ImageThe Charlie Hebdo massacre (as distinct from the subsequent slaughter at the Jewish supermarket) turned the spotlight on Muslim proclivities for righteous rage. Instantly the West’s elected headliners fell over themselves to declare that Islam is a peace-loving religion whose meek adherents only aspire to win a modicum of respect.

As part of our urgent re-education and re-immersion in the cult of multiculturalism, the mantra that the bloodshed “has nothing to do with Islam” was drilled into us nonstop. This, it was repeatedly chanted, is the correct way for us to think. Deviations from the prescribed diktat would be sternly denounced in the name of freedom.

Perhaps that’s why the dismal fate of Saudi citizen Raif Badawi didn’t much move the agenda-setters who so warily safeguard our inalienable right not to veer from their infallible guidelines.

Badawi, 31, fell victim to precisely the same Muslim muzzling as did the Charlie Hebdo cartoonists, but he is geographically distant and, therefore perhaps, his pain is less in the enlightened faces of opinion-molders.

But the fact still remains that he suffers appallingly only because he dared take an independent stand. That’s his one and only crime.

Moreover, his torment isn’t at the hands of wild-eyed Islamic irregulars but at the hands of an orderly Islamic regime to which the international community’s movers and shakers – foremost Barack Obama, the Commander in Chief of the self-acclaimed Free World – all avidly suck up.

 
Two soldiers killed, 7 hurt in attack near Lebanon border

Victims named as Yochai Kalengel, Dor Nini; Hezbollah claims revenge strike on Israeli patrol; IDF bombards targets in Lebanon in response, reportedly killing a UN peacekeeper

By Lazar Berman and Jonathan Beck

ImageTwo soldiers were killed Wednesday when an Israeli army patrol came under anti-tank fire from Hezbollah operatives in the northern Mount Dov region near the border with Lebanon.

The IDF confirmed that at least seven soldiers were wounded in the attack and ruled out the possibility that a soldier had been kidnapped.

The two soldiers were identified later as company commander Captain Yochai Kalengel, 25, from Har Gilo and Sgt. Dor Nini, 20, from Shtulim.

Their vehicle was hit by the first of five Kornet guided anti-tank missiles fired at an IDF convoy near Ghajar, on a civilian road near the border. Other soldiers in the convoy evacuated their vehicles when the first missile struck, preventing further loss of life. The missiles were said to have been fired from a distance of some 4.5 kilometers.

 
Our past must not become the future for our children:

A deeply moving plea from one survivor as victims return to Auschwitz 70 years after they were liberated

Around 300 people who survived Auschwitz paid their respects at the former Nazi death camp yesterday
It came on the 70th anniversary of the camp's liberation by the Soviet Army near the end of the Second World War
Hollywood director Steven Spielberg also joined world leaders at the camp to condemn rise in anti-Semitism
Survivors and their families gathered to lay wreaths at the camp's 'wall of death' and lit candles
Heads of state and European royalty attended the service at the camp in Poland for poignant commemorations

By Robert Hardman At Auschwitz For The Daily Mail
January 27, 2015

They are the dwindling few who know, truly, what it is to go to hell and back. Seventy years on, they were there again yesterday.

On this very spot, they had seen their loved ones for the last time.

Next to this bleakest of buildings, millions of families had been torn apart forever in a hysterical bedlam of beating, whipping, attack dogs and random execution. Has anywhere else endured such misery?
