What has become an annual event, about 50 left wing whackjobs from Code Pink and other anti-Israel groups stormed the Washington Convention Center, blocking at least one entrance to AIPAC (American Israel Public Affairs Committee). Police made several arrests and had to physically drag several of the terrorist supporters out of the building.
Popular Resistance Also seen was the yellow flag of Hezbollah as well as the usual group of Rent-a-Rabbis (funded by Iran) who are anti-Israel at the annual American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC). Many were wearing Netanyahu masks and proclaiming him a war criminal, comparing Israel to ISIS, while others blockaded the doors resulting in arrests.
On Monday, March 2, 2015 from 6:00 – 9:00PM they will protest at the Washington Convention Center during Netanyahu’s AIPAC speech (801 Mt Vernon Pl, NW Washington DC). Activists will hold a protest and candlelight vigil to commemorate the Muslim lives lost in the Hamas-instigated war with Israel in 2014.
The Bethlehem-based news agency Ma’an has cited a Kuwaiti newspaper report, that Obama thwarted an Israeli military attack against Iran’s nuclear facilities in 2014 by threatening to shoot down Israeli jets before they could reach their targets in Iran.
INN Following Obama’s threat, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was reportedly forced to abort the planned Iran attack. According to Al-Jarida, the Netanyahu government took the decision to strike Iran some time in 2014 soon after Israel had discovered the United States and Iran had been involved in secret talks over Iran’s nuclear program and were about to sign an agreement in that regard behind Israel’s back.
The report claimed that an unnamed Israeli minister who has good ties with the US administration revealed the attack plan to Secretary of State John Kerry, and that Obama then threatened to shoot down the Israeli jets before they could reach their targets in Iran.
Al-Jarida quoted “well-placed” sources as saying that Netanyahu, along with Minister of Defense Moshe Yaalon, and then-Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman, had decided to carry out airstrikes against Iran’s nuclear program after consultations with top security commanders.
According to the report, “Netanyahu and his commanders agreed after four nights of deliberations to task the Israeli army’s chief of staff, Benny Gantz, to prepare a qualitative operation against Iran’s nuclear program. In addition, Netanyahu and his ministers decided to do whatever they could do to thwart a possible agreement between Iran and the White House because such an agreement is, allegedly, a threat to Israel’s security.”
The sources added that Gantz and his commanders prepared the requested plan and that Israeli fighter jets trained for several weeks in order to make sure the plans would work successfully. Israeli fighter jets reportedly even carried out experimental flights in Iran’s airspace after they managed to break through radars.
Former US diplomat and Islamofascist sympathizer, Zbigniew Brzezinski, who enthusiastically campaigned for Obama in 2008, called on him to shoot down Israeli planes if they attack Iran. “They have to fly over our airspace in Iraq. Are we just going to sit there and watch?” said the former national security advisor to former President Jimmy Carter in an interview with the Daily Beast.
Since January 15 the French Army’s “Opération Sentinelle” has protected 722 Jewish schools and synagogues, some 24/7 even when the establishments were empty. But the operation came to be regarded as too dangerous for the soldiers who were regularly targets of attacks. Over time the men were worn out.

10 News The army has reported 371 incidents perpetrated against the soldiers standing guard in front of the protected sites. The Defense Ministry has announced that the men will become more mobile, rendering them less vulnerable.
The army noted that “reconnoitering, the taking of snapshots and films” by jihadists preparing future attacks had been going on. “Fourteen serious attacks, with a knife, laser, even blows with heavy sticks,” were reported.

Saying, “We won’t let Islamic extremists intimidate Israel and turn it into another Islamic State,” Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman instructed Yisrael Beytenu party activists to buy thousands of copies of Charlie Hebdo’s ‘survivors’ issue’ after Israel’s largest bookstore chain decided not to stock it in order not to incite Muslim rage.
Times of Israel “We will not allow Islam to intimidate us and turn Israel into a country that surrenders to Muslim threats and harms our freedom of expression,” said Avigdor Lieberman.
In their decision, the judges wrote that distributing the magazine was “legitimate election propaganda” and did not constitute a prohibited gift, as the elections committee had argued. The court said that allowing the initiative would not pose a realistic threat to the integrity of the elections process, while preventing it would be a blow to freedom of speech.
Israel’s national elections are scheduled for March 17.
Liberman welcomed the ruling, claiming victory against Arab Knesset members who were against the magazine’s circulation because its front cover featured a cartoon drawing of the Prophet Muhammad.
“The High Court’s decision to allow the distribution of Charlie Hebdo is an important message that Israel remains a Jewish and democratic state and that we shouldn’t give in to threats and violence by Arab members of Knesset who are trying to turn Israel into another Islamic State country,” he said.
The Central Elections Committee had ruled earlier in February against Yisrael Beytenu’s plan to distribute complementary copies of Charlie Hebdo, saying such action constituted illegal gift-giving to voters. Explaining his decision at the time, committee head Justice Salim Joubran said giving out the magazine would constitute election propaganda.
Arab parties had petitioned against the move, citing election regulations but also the danger of infuriating Israel’s Muslim population due to the cover.
Liberman had ordered his party activists to buy up and hand out copies of the “survivors’ issue” of the satirical magazine, featuring a caricature of the Prophet Muhammad, after a local bookstore backed out of selling it at the last minute.
Charlie Hebdo has in the past angered some Muslims by printing caricatures of Muhammad. The issue released in mid-January drew widespread protests across the Muslim world, including in Gaza.
It’s about time! An increasing number of French Jews are turning to Marine Le Pen’s Front National, despite the party’s past reputation for anti-Semitism, as they now see Muslims as a bigger threat and Le Pen as their best ally against Islamic Jew hatred running rampant in France.
Breitbart (h/t Christian M) Roger Cukierman, the Chairman of the Representative Council of Jewish Institutions, said the party was no longer violent and that its current leader had never used anti-Semitic language, The Times reports.
The statement comes as at least 14 percent of France’s half a million Jews look set to support Mrs Le Pen in the country’s Presidential elections in 2017.
The feisty blonde daughter of Jean-Marie has been consistently rising in national polling, but has seen a surge of support following the Charlie Hebdo and kosher supermarket terrorist attacks earlier this year which left 20 dead.
Many Jews now see second and third generation Muslim immigrants, rather than the far-right, as the biggest threat to their community’s safety. “The National Front is a party for which I would never vote but it’s a party which today doesn’t commit violent acts. Let’s be clear: all the violence [against Jews] is now committed by young Muslims,” Mr Cukierman said.
His comments sparked a row among French Jews, some of whom see the Le Pen family as political descendants of the Vichy regime which collaborated with the Nazis following the occupation in 1940. Marine’s father, Jean-Marie Le Pen, has a history of anti-Semitism and justifying war crimes as well as defending the Vichy regime, while his daughter has firmly moved the party away from such a position.
“She is currently topping the polls and is far less tolerant of attacks on the Jewish community than her more centrist rivals; a point underlined by Mr Cukierman when he said: “She has never made anti-Semitic comments, I have nothing for which to reproach her personally.
She has shifted the focus of the party onto the danger of Muslim immigration, which France has been concerned about for many years, and was a key decision maker in the 2005 referendum on the European Constitution which supported Turkish entry.
Polling suggests the party is now making inroads into the Jewish vote, with data from the 2012 presidential elections suggesting that 13.5 percent of Jews voted for Mrs Le Pen compared with 17.9 percent of the population as a whole. This is a huge leap from when her father ran in 2007, scoring only 4.4 per cent of the Jewish vote.
In contrast, an FN candidate in next month’s local elections took to twitter to describe Islam as “The bubonic plague of the 21st century…to be fought, to be eliminated without hestiation by all possible means.” Le Pen said the candidate Chantal Clamer, who is standing in the South of France, went too far, but refused to suspend her from the party or force her to step down as a candidate.
Commentators say Mrs Le Pen is likely to make further inroads in her attempts to woo Jewish voters amid concerns over anti-Semitic violence.
At least 7,000 Jews emigrated from France to Israel last year, more than twice the number for 2013. It is estimated that around 10,000 will make the same decision in 2015.
NORWAY: The weekend’s feel-good story about a thousand-strong Muslim “Ring of Peace” formed to ‘protect’ Jews at an Oslo synagogue turned out to be a complete fabrication by the media, according to eyewitnesses, local officials, and attendees’ photos.
Breitbart According to a local eyewitness, barely 20 Muslims, if that, formed the “ring of peace” around the Oslo synagogue. In fact, pictures from multiple angles show that there wasn’t enough people to form a ring, so the locals instead formed a horizontal line in front of the synagogue.
As it turns out, as many as 40 times more Northern European Muslims attended the funeral of a Copenhagen Muslim terrorist than those who decided to form the non-existent “ring of peace” around an Oslo synagogue.

A local news outlet explained how the media got to its “1,300 Muslims” number. “According to police, there were 1300 persons present in the event. Most of them were ethnic Norwegians,” read a translated report from Osloby.no.
Demonstrators also reportedly chanted, “No to anti-Semitism, no to Islamophobia,” conflating criticism of Islam and hatred of Jews. Photos pulled off of social media appear to corroborate the narrative that only twenty or so people formed the “peace ring.”
The AP incorrectly reported, “More than 1,000 people have formed a ‘ring of peace’ outside Oslo’s main synagogue at the initiative of a group of young Muslims.” AFP reports almost identically, “More than 1,000 people formed a ‘ring of peace’ Saturday outside Oslo’s main synagogue at the initiative of a group of young Muslims.” The newswire agency has no excuse for the false report, as it had a photographer taking shots of the “ring” at the scene.
Reuters reported, “More than 1000 Muslims formed a human shield around Oslo’s synagogue on Saturday, offering symbolic protection for the city’s Jewish community and condemning an attack on a synagogue in neighboring Denmark last weekend.”
Even Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty reported, “More than 1,000 Muslims formed a human shield around an Oslo synagogue on February 21, offering symbolic protection for the city’s Jewish community and condemning an attack on a synagogue in neighboring Denmark the previous weekend.”
What the reports conveniently left out was the fact that the organizer of the Muslim “peace ring” is a virulent anti-Semite, 9/11 truther, a gay-basher, and an Israel-hater.
Ali Chishti, who helped to organize the event, said bluntly in 2008, “I hate Jews and how they operate,” reports Daniel Greenfield. Chishti added in his conspiracy-laden rant about the Jewish people, “It is a fact that during the attacks on the Twin Towers [World Trade Center] 1600 Jews were absent from work. OK, OK, what’s even more suspicious, is how unusually many Jews there were present in Mumbai on the day that Pakistani terrorists struck. How come?”
At a March, 2008 meeting in Oslo promoting his 9/11 conspiracy theory that the Jews were responsible for the World Trade Center attacks, Chishti read his speech titled, “Therefore I Hate Jews And Gays,” Haaretz reports.
Take a look at the so-called “Muslim” crowd:
They are busy inventing revolutionary ways to help blind people to ‘see.’
Fortunately, the attacker was captured by the Mayor of Jerusalem and his bodyguard.

Hundreds of graves were vandalized at a Jewish cemetery in eastern France over the weekend, in what the interior minister called “a despicable act.”
Washington Times “The country will not tolerate this new injury which goes against the values that all French people share,” said Bernard Cazeneuve, without giving further details of the incident in the town of Sarre-Union, The Guardian reported.
“Every effort will be made to identify, question and bring to justice the person or persons responsible for this ignominious act,” he said. France’s prime minister Manuel Valls, writing on Twitter, also condemned the vandalism, calling it “an antisemitic and ignoble act.”
Local media reported that about 200 grave stones were knocked down, and a monument to Holocaust victims was damaged, the Associated Press reported.
The vandalism comes as French Jews continue to flee the country amid fears of anti-Semitism, after an Islamic terrorist gunned town four Jews at a Paris kosher deli last month and similar attacks Denmark this weekend, AP reported.
French President Francois Hollande said in a statement that “France is determined to fight relentlessly against anti-Semitism and those who want to attack the nation’s values.”

An Israeli woman who has lived in the United States for the last 15 years was barred from boarding a London-bound Kuwait Airways flight in New York because of her Israeli citizenship.
Times of Israel Iris Eliazarov, 26, who came to the United States when she was 11 and has a green card, was barred from the November 1 Kuwait Airways flight from John F. Kennedy Airport in New York to London, The New York Daily News reported Friday. Her husband, David Nektalov, a US citizen, was allowed to board the flight.
A Kuwaiti law prohibits Israeli citizens from flying on Kuwait Airways. Eliazarov has filed a discrimination lawsuit against the airline, which argues that the airline policy violates both state and federal civil rights laws. “I didn’t think discrimination like this could exist in America, at JFK [Airport], in New York City. If they want to operate here, they have to obey U.S. laws.”
The airline’s attorney John Maggio told the newspaper that the suit has no merit because the policy is based on citizenship, not religion. He said that a Muslim with an Israeli passport also would not be allowed on the plane. (On the other hand, why would any Jew want to fly on an Arab-Muslim airline?)
A German court in the city of Wuppertal convicted two Palestinian Muslims of an arson attack on a Synagogue but denied the crime was motivated by anti-semitism. The court’s decision stated that the goal of the attack was to bring “attention to the Gaza conflict.”
J Post The Wuppertal court sentenced the two men, ages 24 and 29, to a suspended prison term of one year and three months.
The synagogue was attacked in the middle of the wave of anti-Israel and anti-semitic demonstrations that occurred in Europe last summer during the Gaza war, which were accompanied by many other attacks upon individual Jews and Jewish institutions.
The two men, along with an 18-year-old juvenile, in July tossed Molotov cocktails at the synagogue in Wuppertal, a city in the state of North Rhine-Westphalia with a population of nearly 344,000. The court ordered all three to perform 200 hours of community service.
Young Muslim girls leap in front of Jewish worshipers, screaming “allahu akbar,” and “Jews are dogs.” The Temple Institute reported that the “Muslim supremacists who dominate the Temple Mount” have come up with a new weapon against Jewish visits to the Mount – in the form of young girls.
INN “Their latest gambit, paying men and women to inhabit the Temple Mount during the hours that it is open to Jews and follow the Jewish worshipers every where they go on the Temple Mount, screaming curses and allahu akbars at the top of their lungs, got a flat tire when the Israel police and security services shut down the organizations which were funneling the money from Hamas to the agitators,” explained the Institute.
“The newest Islamic projectile aimed at the heart of Jewish worshipers on the Temple Mount is little girls. Young, pre-pubescent girls can now be found aplenty on the Temple Mount. Because they are Muslim, young and female, the Israel police won’t touch them.
The young girls, following the instruction and encouragement of their elders, feel free to leap in front of Jewish worshipers, screaming in their high pitched voices ‘allahu akbar,’ ‘the Jews are dogs,’ and whatever else comes to their innocent minds, while at the same time jabbing their fingers in the faces of the Jewish worshipers. “Sometimes the little angels get so wrapped up in their game of ‘harass the Jews’ that they even begin pushing the Jewish worshipers.
“What is a self respecting, dignified human being to do in response?,” asks the Institute. “Push the little things back? Pull on their pony tails? A group of six Jewish worshipers [Sunday] did what they thought was the responsible and appropriate thing to do: They called on the police to intervene. The police did, arresting the Jews and holding them in custody for more than 24 hours.
“All this goes to prove the wildly successful effectiveness of the Muslims latest weapon in their ever improving arsenal in the war against the Jews on the Temple Mount.” The Jewish youths who were arrested were represented by the Honenu organization, which said that the Jews were arrested in response to their demand that police arrest the Waqf men who had harassed them.
