Sudanese attacks Israeli on Ethiopian Airlines flight

Muslim arrested for allegedly choking and beating man after finding out he’s Jewish on flight from N’Djamena to Addis Ababa BY TIMES OF ISRAEL STAFF November 3, 2015, 9:12 pm Tweet

Ethiopian authorities arrested a Sudanese man Tuesday for allegedly attacking an Israeli on an Ethiopian Airlines flight from N’Djamena to Addis Ababa last week.

The suspect reportedly beat the Israeli man, identified by Ynet as a 54-year-old named Arik, with a metal tray and shouted “Allah is greatest” and “kill the Jews” in Arabic on the flight from Chad to Ethiopia’s capital on Thursday.

The Foreign Ministry said that there was an alleged assault on an Israeli citizen on a flight to Ethiopia, and that the suspected assailant was a Muslim from Sudan.

“On landing the Sudanese man was arrested by police, where he was questioned and has remained since the incident,” the ministry said in a statement. “The embassy was updated by local authorities.”

Palestinians set fire to Jewish shrine in West Bank: army

JERUSALEM (Reuters) – Palestinians set fire to a Jewish shrine in the West Bank on Friday as the Islamist group Hamas called for a day of rage against Israel, and two weeks of turmoil in the region showed little signs of abating.

Israel’s military said about 100 people rushed the tomb of the biblical patriarch Joseph, which is located in the Palestinian city of Nablus. They were pushed back by Palestinian security forces who arrived on site, but not before setting parts of it aflame.

“We view this incident with gravity and strongly condemn any attack on holy sites. We will find and arrest those who set the fire,” the military said in a statement.

The unrest that has engulfed Jerusalem and the occupied West Bank, the most serious in years, has claimed the lives of 32 Palestinians and seven Israelis.

US Ignores UN Session on Christian Genocide in Mideast

As Christians and other minorities continue to be purged in the Middle East in general under the Islamic State and other jihadi organizations in particular, France sponsored an open UN Security Council meeting on March 27, to discuss “The Victims of attacks and abuses on ethnic and religious grounds in the Middle East. ”

While several Western nations sent high ranking officials to attend, the United States did not.

French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius opened by saying “Make no mistake, In the Middle East we are facing a barbaric, systematic process of ethnic and religious eradication. Although the majority of the jihadi terrorists victims are Muslim, non-Muslim communities are priority targets. ” Taking specifically about Christians, Yazidis and Kurds, the French minister said that they “all are threatened with the same triangle of horror: forced exile , enslavement, or death.”

Austria’s Foreign Minister Sebastian Kurz said that the Islamic State’s actions must be seen as war crimes and genocide and must not go unpunished.

Poland’s ambassador, Boguslaw Winid, said that “The history of the twentieth century teaches about the need to act in the face of similar developments to prevent even bigger-scale atrocities.”

Yet, in the words of the World Tribune:

Though many high level delegations from UN member states addressed the Security Council meeting, some at the Foreign Minister level, the United States failed to send UN Ambassador Samantha Power (and Secretary Kerry was busy negotiating a nuclear deal with Iran) or a high ranking member of the State Department. Why not?

Islamic law overrides Egyptian law in case of recent church attack, says Coptic priest

egypt-christiansAccording to a local priest and Coptic spokesman, last Friday’s assault on a Coptic Christian church proposed to be built, with President Sisi’s permission, to honor the 21 Coptic Christians who were slaughtered by the Islamic State in Libya, was all too typical and a reminder that Islamic Sharia sentiment continues to trump the sovereignty of the Egyptian state.  During an interview he said:

First, what happened is that, when we make a decision for the church but then cannot implement this decision [to build the church] because some of the Muslims do not want it, because they don’t want the church—this is, first and foremost, a failure of the state and its authority and a failure of the rule of law.  When a group comes to oppose [with violence, several Copts were injured], and the police leaves them free, this is like a disease that will spread everywhere.

Today, for example, there is a decision, but there are say 3-4 Brotherhood or Salafis opposing it, and the government appears protesting with them—in this case, you have given everyone who wants to oppose [with violence] the opportunity to oppose.

NYC Turf – Not Middle East – at Issue in Kosher vs. Halal Food Carts War

New York City’s food cart turf wars are tough enough without trying to turn them into the Middle East conflict

The idea was just too tempting. When there were reports of territorial animosity and whose “higher authority” was really higher as between Halal-observant Muslim food cart vendors and a Kashrut-observant Jewish food cart vendor, the need to cast the animosity as reflecting the Middle East conflict was too strong for some  to resist.

But in order to help avoid a real religious conflict where none currently exists, The Jewish Press is happy to report the facts in the New York mid-town food cart war.

And what it boils down to is some people play dirty. And sometimes they play dirty simply because that’s who they are, not what they are.

Let’s start at the beginning.

Yisroel Mordowitz owns the kosher meat food cart, “Holy Rollers Kosher Cart.” He used to be located in the Queens borough of New York City. A food cart vendor friend of his left a location in Midtown which Mordowitz knew would be spectacular for his cart. After six months during which the “prime” Midtown spot remained vacant, Mordowitz rolled his cart near Rockefeller Center in Manhattan, at 48th Street and 6th Avenue. That happened about ten days ago.

And that’s when the turf battle began.

Mordowitz and his Holy Rollers cart became the object of intense intimidation. Those menacing him were Egyptian Halal food cart owners. Halal is the standard of food preparation required of observant Muslims. Although observant Muslims can eat Kosher food, observant Jews are not able to eat Halal, as the Kashrut requirements are stricter and more extensive.

The competition would show up before Mordowitz arrived, and blockade the curb where he had set up his cart the day before. Then his competitors blocked the space with umbrellas and beverage cartons, just to ensure that the Holy Rollers cart could not serve customers there.  The Halal cart owners complained Mordowitz was interfering with their business, even though those who flocked to the Holy Rollers could not eat Halal-certified meat.

There are many Halal vendors in New York City, but, according to Mordowitz, Holy Rollers Kosher Cart is the only glatt Kosher meat food cart in all of New York City.

There is no “right,” under New York City law, for vendors to “own” certain locations, so the vendors blocking Mordowitz had no legal position. But they were intimidating.

When I was in Israel in the mid 80’s, I befriended a Yemenite Jew, actually two of them, they were brothers, some of the nicest people you could ever know. They were a part of the great exodus of Jews from Yemen to Israel in 1950.


Just a handful of Jews remain in Yemen, and the remaining few are said to be contemplating an emergency exodus to Israel or the United States after the Iran-backed Shiite Houthi militia staged a coup and overthrew the government.

On their march to Sanaa, the Houthis frequently espoused their motto, which reads, “Death to America, death to Israel, curse the Jews, victory to Islam.”

The 70 or so remaining members of Yemeni Jewry, who have a history that predates Islam by thousands of years, live in a situation that remains comparable to “house arrest,” the New York Times writes.

“Since last September, our movements have become very limited for fear of the security situation, and there are some members of the community who preferred to leave Yemen,” chief rabbi Yahya Youssef told Reuters.

Because of the hostile Iran-backed Houthi militia that now runs the country, “there isn’t a single one of us here who doesn’t want to leave,” Suleiman Jacob, 45, told the New York Times.

Under Muslim rule, Yemen’s Jews remain a heavily persecuted minority. They are subject to a jizya tax for their faith, and live very much as second-class citizens. Jews are also forbidden from even touching Muslims or eating within their vicinity. In return for their compliance, Yemen’s former governments protected its Jewish community, but the Houthi takeover has created an unpredictable situation for its remaining few.

Egypt court bans Jewish festival for ‘moral offences’

Jewish pilgrims light candles at a shrine dedicated to Rabbi Yaakov Abuhatzeira in Damanhur, Egypt (1999)The court also ordered the removal of the tomb from Egypt’s antiquities and monuments list
A court in Egypt has banned an annual Jewish festival held in honour of a 19th Century Moroccan rabbi.

The Alexandria Administrative Court said its decision was due to “moral offences” committed in previous years.

Locals had reportedly complained about the consumption of alcohol and mingling of men and women at the tomb of Yaakov Abuhatzeira in the town of Damanhur.

Jews, mostly from Israel and Morocco, have made pilgrimages there since Egypt’s 1979 peace deal with Israel.

However, they were prevented by court orders in 2001 and 2004.

And in 2012 the festival was cancelled by the Egyptian authorities because of security concerns after the uprising that forced President Hosni Mubarak to resign.

Monday’s ruling will make the ban permanent unless a higher court overturns it on appeal.

Turkey for the most part, has been emptied of its Christians and Jews. All that love, peace and good will coming from the ROP just wasn’t enough to keep them there. No, wait, they were either killed or driven out.

That’s Islam. If its not the fast jihad, they do it little by little.

The BBC reported that the Pope visited the Blue Mosque in Istanbul as part of a three-day visit to Turkey. According to the BBC reporter, the Pope offered a moment of “silent prayer…next to the Grand Mufti.” The BBC man said that it was, “a moment of rich symbolism in terms of the inter-faith dialogue” that the Pope is trying to promote.

Guess what country is more Muslim than Iran

The BBC reports that the Christian population of Turkey has declinedfrom 20% to 0.2% in the last 100 years. No, that’s not a typo. And it’s not an accident either.

“No country in the region – including Iran – is as homogenous in terms of Islam as Turkey,” says writer Cengiz Aktar. “It’s a mono-colour country – it’s a Muslim country.”

After the Turkish Republic was born in 1923, it carried out a “population exchange” with Greece to create more ethnic and religious consistency. More than a million Greeks were forced out of Turkey to Greece while around 300,000 Muslims from Greece were relocated here.

The Greeks of Istanbul were initially saved but after a crippling wealth tax, (jiziya-extortion) anti-Greek pogroms in 1955 and mass expulsions in 1964, the Greek community was left in tatters. And so was the Orthodox Christianity they practised.

palis kill four jews in synagogue

“I see Arabs all the time and I am friendly, but you don’t know who will kill next – especially with the younger generation,” he continued. “You can see it in their eyes – they look at you like you are garbage.”

Terror attack scene in Jerusalem

Axes, knives and guns pierce the heart of a once peaceful community

The stormed the synagogue and shouted ‘God is great!’ in Arabic and started killing people with axes and knives,” said a man in disbelief, holding his head in his hands. “They are animals!”

The profoundly incongruous juxtaposition of an unimaginably violent mass murder in a sacred house of worship Tuesday morning by two Palestinian terrorists transformed a picturesque and peaceful Jewish neighborhood in Western Jerusalem into a scene from a horror film.

Amid dozens of heavily armed police officers, ambulances and helicopters hovering above, the site of the massacre, Bnei Torah Synagogue, nestled in a normally tranquil street in the ultra-Orthodox community of Har Nof, took on the visage of a war zone.

Hundreds of shocked residents watched police and paramedics enter and leave the crime scene behind red tape cordoning off the area.

“There were people hacked with axes on the floor screaming,” said Ezra Batzri, a 24-year-old yeshiva student. “I heard seven gun shots and people were running in all different directions. The cops came and told us to go back home because they thought one of the [terrorists] was still out there.”

In the aftermath, four rabbis, all wrapped in teffilin, were either hacked or shot to death, while six others, including two police officers, were rushed to area hospitals in critical or serious condition.

The two suspects, Odai Abed Abu Jamal, 22, and Ghassan Muhammad Abu Jamal, 32, of Jabel Mukaber in east Jerusalem, were killed in a shootout with officers at the shul’s entrance.

According to Batzri, a number of young Arabs work in the neighborhood’s grocery stores and synagogues.

The situation is obviously still developing, but I wanted to make sure you had Kerry’s immediate statement on the attack.

In addition to calling for a condemnation by the Palestinian leadership “at every single level” – a gesture toward among others Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas – Kerry drew an explicit link between recent PA incitement and today’s murders. Video via the Associated Press:

This morning, today, in Jerusalem, Palestinians attacked Jews who were praying in a synagogue. The people who had come to worship God in the sanctuary of a synagogue were hatcheted and hacked and murdered in that holy place, in an act of pure terror and senseless brutality and murder. I call on the Palestinian leadership at every single level to condemn this in the most powerful terms.  This violence has no place anywhere, and to have this kind of act, which is a pure result of incitement, of calls for days of rage, of just an irresponsibility, it is unacceptable. So, the Palestinian leadership must condemn this, and they must begin to take serious steps to restrain any kind of incitement that comes from their language, from other people’s language, and exhibit the kind of leadership that is necessary to put this region on a different path.

Some more links and background on recent Abbas statements, in case you’re following the incitement debate:

Nov 2: “Abbas says Glick shooter will go to heaven as martyr” (you’ll be hearing more about this stmt – Glick is an activist for expanded Jewish access to the Temple Mount; he’s also a rabbi and when he was shot earlier this month Abbas hailed the terrorist as a hero; today 2 other terrorists walked into a synagogue and started murdering other rabbis)

ISIS Pressure on Human Rights: Dangerous Developments in Pakistan

By • on November 12, 2014

Our friends in Pakistan at the FarrukhSaif Foundation made us aware of the following developments in Pakistan. These developments have huge implications for human rights in the Indian Subcontinent in particular. They are also likely to have a broader strategic impact that will likely have human rights implications across a much wider area.

Ready or not they are coming: By Farrukh Harrison Saif

South Asia: Pakistani intelligence agencies have warned the provincial governments and other law and enforcement agencies regarding the mounting threat from the ISIS militants. Recently a secret document was leaked in which Pakistani Agencies were sending information about the ISIS (Daish) activities in Pakistan.

According to the letter, dated 31st October, Daish or ISIS has recruited 10,000 to 12,000 fighters from the Hangu district of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Kurram tribal district in FATA. In that letter it is also mentioned that ISIS has offered some banned Islamic organizations like Lashkar-e-Jhangvi (LeJ) and Ahl-e-Sunnat Wal Jamat (ASWJ) to join hands in Pakistan. Both of these organizations are Anti-Shia like ISIS. ISIS (Daish) has also formed 10-members Strategic Planning Wing, which will target the Army installations in Pakistan as Pakistani Army is working hard to eliminate these terrorists from the North of Pakistan.

Moreover, Pakistani Military Intelligence revealed that there are more than 370 ISIS terrorists in Pakistan and the majority of them have made their strongholds in Karachi and Southern Punjab.Different media groups are revealing that hundreds of Islamists are joining ISIS in Punjab and currently five top ISIS commanders have shifted to Lahore from Karachi and all of them are Australian Nationals.

Pakistan is currently going through the hard time in its history , religious extremism is at its height and if, as with this situation, terrorist organizations like ISIS made their strong hold in Pakistan, then religious Minorities and Moderate Muslims will be in great tribulation.

Altaf Hussain, the Chief of MQM, is the only person who raised this issue in public on the same day when this report was leaked.

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas on Tuesday warned that the Palestinians will not allow Israeli extremists to “contaminate” the Temple Mount, and said that allowing Jewish prayer at the site would risk a global religious war.

The PA leader also maintained that the rioters at the Al-Aqsa Mosque on the disputed holy site had the right to defend themselves, and said Muslims and Christians would never recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Abbas’s remarks (Arabic link) came in an address to thousands who gathered in Ramallah in honor of the 10th anniversary of the death of PLO leader Yasser Arafat, during which he cautioned the Israeli government against changing the status quo at the Temple Mount.

“Keep the settlers and the extremists away from Al-Aqsa and our holy places,” Abbas demanded. “We will not allow our holy places to be contaminated. Keep them away from us and we will stay away from them, but if they enter al-Aqsa, [we] will protect al-Aqsa and the church and the entire country,” he said. It was unclear what church Abbas was referring to.

Wikipedia: The Hebron massacre refers to the killing of sixty-seven Jews (including 23 college students) on 24 August 1929 in Hebron, then part of Mandatory Palestine, by Arabs incited to violence by false rumors that Jews were massacring Arabs in Jerusalem and seizing control of Muslim holy places.[1] The event also left scores seriously wounded or maimed. Jewish homes were pillaged and synagogues were ransacked. Many of the 435 Jews who survived were hidden by local Arab families.[2][3] Soon after, all Hebron’s Jews were evacuated by the British authorities. Many returned in 1931, but almost all were evacuated at the outbreak of the 1936–39 Arab revolt in Palestine. The massacre formed part of the 1929 Palestine riots, in which a total of 133 Jews and 110 Arabs were killed, and brought the centuries-old Jewish presence in Hebron to an end.

The instigator of these Arab riots/pogroms against the Jews, was none other than Hajj Amin al-Husseini, the mufti of Jerusalem.

In 1929, after years of relatively peaceful existence, the Arabs of Hebron responded to the call of the Mufti of Jerusalem and slaughtered the Jews in their midst.

A Jewish child, Shlomo Slonim, 18-months-old at the time of the massacre, survived the brutality.

The Slonim baby lived because after being struck in the head with an axe, he lost consciousness and was covered by the dead bodies of his slain parents. His four-year old brother and grandparents were also slaughtered.

In all, 24 of the 67 Jews butchered in Hebron that day died in the Slonim house. People hid there because it was thought to be the safest place, given the close relations Shlomo’s father had with the Arab neighbors who had promised him protection.

But none were spared.

Watch: Arabs Attack Jerusalem Day Care Center

Arab rioters unleash fireworks, firebombs and rocks at Jewish children on Mount of Olives, as Aharonovich blamed for security ‘collapse.’

By Ari Yashar

First Publish: 9/30/2014, 10:33 PM

Arab rioters hurling rocks, fireworks and molotov cocktails at a Jewish infant day care center on Ma’ale Hazeitim, the Jewish neighborhood on the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem, were caught on film on Tuesday in further testimony to the ongoing “silent intifada” in the capital.

The video, which was posted by Jerusalem Council Arieh King to his Facebook on Tuesday, shows four Arab criminals throwing various of projectiles with impunity for many long minutes from a protected nook on one of the rooftops, forcing infants to be rushed inside to bomb shelters.

In the video a woman can be heard saying “you don’t even see a single police officer here,” as the rocks continue to hail down – reportedly the police took seven minutes to arrive. The women then can be heard shouting to the police to go up to where the Arab attackers were pelting rocks.

Jewish Worshippers Ambushed by Arabs in Vicious Jerusalem Attack

Victim of Arab attack over Rosh Hashanah says police nowhere to be found, claims victims of terror no longer able to defend themselves.

A group of Jews were subjected to a vicious assault in broad daylight after being ambushed by an Arab gang on Rosh Hashanah, in the latest of a spate of violent anti-Semitic incidents in Jerusalem.

Chanan Kupietzky, a 26-year-old counselor at the Old City’s Hakotel yeshiva, was walking with his 16-year-old brother and a friend on the way back from the ancient Shiloach Pool in the City of David where they had taken part in the tashlich ritual, in which Jews symbolically cast their sins into a body of running water as a gesture of repentance.

The site, which dates back to the Byzantine era, is usually frequented by Jewish worshippers during Rosh Hashanah, and the route through the predominantly Arab neighborhood of Shiloach (also known as Silwan) is supposed to be secured by police in order to prevent any violence against Jewish pilgrims. But as the trio made their way back from the site on Friday Chanan said they noticed that instead of fanning out and securing the route, police were nowhere to be found.

“They were all at the bottom of the hill, nowhere else,” he claimed.

Local Arab youths took advantage of the lack of police presence almost immediately to carry out what appears to have been a pre-planned ambush.

Chanan recounted how an Arab horseman began intimidating a group of Jewish families walking near to his group, including young children, by charging them repeatedly with his horse. Then, two Arab youths began pelting the families with rocks and bottles, eventually forcing them to turn back.

“They just couldn’t continue on because they had baby carriages and were obviously afraid for their children,” he recalled. “Suddenly, we realized our group was totally isolated.”

Another group of Arab youths standing on a balcony then began hurling insults at the trio, who picked up the pace in an attempt to get back to the Kotel (Western Wall).

But they didn’t get far before the incident suddenly turned violent.

“They signaled to some guy in a local shop to do something… he was a very big guy. We continued on our way but the man then started walking towards us, and as we got closer he kicked my brother very hard in the back of his leg.

Statement by Bürgerbewegung Pax Europa

OSCE Human Dimension Implementation Meeting

Working Session 12

Tolerance and Non-Discrimination II

Warsaw, September 30, 2014

Dangerous trends in hate crimes against Jews & Christians

BPE welcomes with great pleasure the recent demonstration in Berlin against anti-semitism, which was graced by the presence of German Chancellor Angela Merkel. This event, which also expressed support for Israels right to defend herself against terrorist forces, marks a new high point in awareness of this rising problem. Similar manifestations in Denmark have received significant media attention, which is good.

While not nearly as bad as in many Middle Eastern countries, intolerance and harassment against Christians is a rising problem in several OSCE pS. The rising awareness of anti-semitism is good news, but similar awareness of ‘Christianophobia’ is needed. Intolerance of Christians on religious grounds is on the rise, and this needs countering.

Danish media are reporting that in many cases Christians of immigrant background are being persecuted and even threatened with stoning, interestingly to great extent by immigrants of Muslim background. This happens also among asylum seekers, who should be escaping persecution, not propagating it. While the situation is nothing like the catastrophic levels we are witnessing in the Middle East, it would appear that the Middle Eastern conflict patterns are being replicated in European states. This must be addressed.

It is worth noting that Islamic groups (in particular salafist) have taken upon themselves to denigrate Jews and Christians. This inter-religious tension and conflict deserves attention and action from our secular states and institutions. Identifying not only the victims of hate crimes but also their sources should be standard operating procedure.

BPE recommends:

– That statistics be made not only about the victims of hate crimes, also about the perpetrators, in order to identify if any political or religious group appears to be causing particular problems in the field, and as a basis for further legal action if this is the case.

– That OSCE pS undertake a vetting of Islamic organizations in the political sphere to ensure that they do not give rise to radical views on adherents of other religions, and in particular that their literature and other material be investigated for endorsement of such views.

– That OSCE pS call upon Islamic organizations to issue official statements that harassment of and hate crimes against Jews, Christians or other non-Muslims is against the teachings of Islam, and that such intolerance of other religions cannot be tolerated.

Sudan apostasy woman Mariam Ibrahim ‘to campaign’

Meriam Yahia Ibrahim Ishag and her two children in RomeMrs Ibrahim’s daughter Maya was born in prison in May

Mariam Ibrahim said she believed her imprisonment in Sudan was ”a test”

Mariam Ibrahim, the Sudan woman who escaped a death sentence imposed for renouncing her faith, says she wants to campaign for others who face religious persecution.

Speaking to the BBC in the US, where she is seeking asylum, Ms Ibrahim said she hopes to return to Sudan one day.

Ms Ibrahim earlier received an award from a US Christian foundation.

Her sentencing – by a Sudanese court that did not recognise her Christian faith – sparked outrage this year.

Born to a Muslim father, she was raised a Christian by her mother and married a Christian man.

Under Sudan’s version of Islamic law, however, her father’s religion meant that she too was still technically a Muslim. A court found her guilty of apostasy, or renouncing one’s faith.

Sentenced to hang, she gave birth to her daughter while shackled in prison. Under intense international pressure, her conviction was quashed and she was freed in June.

She told the BBC that she had been threatened by the guards while she was in court.

It’s very difficult to dredge up any sympathy for the woman. It’s not like there isn’t enough available information out there to discourage any non-Muslim woman from marrying a Muslim, let alone converting to the mohammedan creed. That she’s an Israeli, already having to deal with the unpleasant thought that hundreds of millions of Muslims want her dead, then she goes ahead and marries one of them?

Charges have been filed against a Muslim man (21), originally from the neighborhood of Issawia in Jerusalem, for threatening to blow up his pregnant wife with a bomb. The woman is Jewish and converted to Islam, according to a report on Erev Eilat News.

The couple moved to Eilat a year ago.

After getting into a fight in their apartment on Los Angeles Street, the man cursed and threatened his pregnant wife. The woman, fearing for her safety, pulled out a knife to defend herself. The husband took the knife away and hit her in the face.

The woman then escaped the apartment and went to stay with a friend.

Her husband found her two days later, and threatened to blow her up with a bomb.
