INN (h/t Marge K)  Latest anti-Semitic attack by Arab thugs leaves teen in serious condition; passerby joined in the assault.  The 16-year-old boy, who was wearing a Kippa (skullcap) at the time, was attacked while returning to his home to prepare for Shabbat dinner.

According to French news service JSS, he was then approached by four men, which the report described as looking North African Muslim and between the ages of 17-20. The men robbed him, took his shoes, and shattered his phone into the ground.

During the assault, two of the attackers held the victim down while a third repeatedly delivered blows to his body and head, injuring one of his eyes severely.

According to a witness, another man – also described as North African – approached the group, but instead of helping the victim proceeded to verbally assault him by calling him a “coward,” and then advised the attackers to “break” the teen.

The attackers fled when a witness called the police. A report was filed with the police at the scene.

The Bureau National de Vigilance Contre L’Antisemitisme (BNVCA), which monitors anti-Semitic attacks in France, has publicly pledged to help the victim and his family, and has asked the police to make every effort to identify, question, and detain the attackers.

The Buttes Chaumont district is home to many Jewish families, and has recently been targeted on numerous occasions, including attacks on Jewish businesses, and a recent shocking attack on a Jewish mother by three assailants of Africanm Muslim origin. The perpetrators of those crimes have yet to be found.

Ewwww! Those nasty anti-Israel BDS boycotters don’t like it when they get boycotted back

BDS1-1

We have been here before. The vicious anti-Israel boycotters of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement don’t like it when the tables are turned on them.  That’s why, when faculty pass their anti-Israel boycott resolutions, they include in the resolutions the demand that their right to boycott be protected.

Legal Insurrection  In other words, boycotters claim the right to boycott others, but deny others the right to boycott them. It’s an “academic freedom for me, but not for thee attitude.

no-bds-hm

In Europe, in particular, the BDS rhetoric and tactics are so toxic that BDS has become the mother’s milk of anti-Semitic violence and threats.  In many cities, Walking While Jewish is hazardous to one’s health.

But boycotting the boycotters was bound to happen. Israel supporters were not going to be punching bags forever. And forever has arrived.

We have highlighted before proposed federal legislation updating boycott protection for Israel in new trade legislation, including the massive European Union free trade agreement under negotiation. BDS supporters howled that the trade legislation could mean the death of BDS in Europe.

BDS-3-2

Recent legislation introduced in the House targets the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement, whose goal is the destruction of Israel through economic, cultural and academic boycotts.

The legislation, called the United States-Israel Trade and Commercial Enhancement Act, focuses on the “economic” boycott of Israel, expanding upon prior legislation implemented several decades ago in response to the Arab League Boycott of Israel.

200-Reject-ASA

The legislation reportedly was intended to force European countries and companies, where the BDS movement has some influence, into adopting anti-BDS policies and procedures as part of a proposed free trade agreement between the European Union and the U.S.

The EU would be forced to choose between a massive free trade agreement which would bring enormous economic benefits to the floundering EU, or the anti-Israel BDS movement. You could have a boost to European economies and employment, or you could have BDS, but you couldn’t have both.

The sponsors of the legislation presumably expect Europe to choose prosperity over anti-Israel activism.

Screen-Shot-2014-09-09-at-5.35.40-PM

Apparently there is a hard punch packed into the mere 12-page legislation, according to BDS activists who are part of a group dedicated to thwarting free trade agreements.

Writing at The Electronic Intifada, an influential anti-Israel portal, the authors sound like the sky will fall on BDS, How EU-US trade deal could thwart “boycott Israel” campaign:

BDS-lies

Two members of the US Congress have introduced a bill that would turn a giant trade deal between the EU and US into a devastating weapon against the people of Palestine and all those seeking justice alongside them. Together with the proposed Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) that is currently under negotiation, the proposed bill would compel all 28 EU member states to crack down on European groups participating in the growing movement of boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) against Israel in solidarity with the Palestinian people.

In order to combat the increasing isolation of Israel in global public opinion, European governments would effectively be turned into police agents for the US state.

B0aucPdCIAAjCK1

The proposed US-Israel Trade and Commercial Enhancement Act presented to Congress on 10 February seeks to make any trade deal with Brussels conditional on the EU’s willingness to stop European governments, organizations or individuals engaging in BDS actions designed to hold Israel accountable for its responsibilities under international law.

There also is separate federal legislation pending that would require contractors with the U.S. government to certify they are not participating in BDS. There are similar efforts ongoing at the state level.

Look at how Ali Abunimah, one of the most prolific and aggressive anti-Israel boycott advocates who travels from campus to campus advocating various forms of BDS, complains about legislation in Illinois similar to the federal legislation, Illinois law would force state to boycott companies accused of boycotting Israel.

Fake-Gandhi-Quote-Chicago-Sun-Times-Op-Ed-Illinois-boycott-legislation-e1431694253613

The people of the United States overwhelmingly support Israel. It’s not even close.

Now we, the people, are being heard in opposition to the BDS movement not just on campuses, but also through our elected representatives.

Gallup-Israel-Palestinian-Side-With-Feb-2015

In another important move, the Tennessee and Indiana legislatures officially condemned BDS:

Resolutions condemning the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel in the Tennessee and Indiana state legislatures mark what a group of pro-Israel organizations and grassroots activists hope is just the start of a new trend in fighting BDS on American soil.

bdsomar

The Tennessee General Assembly on April 21 became the first state legislature in the U.S. to formally condemn the BDS movement through the passage of Senate Joint Resolution 170. The resolution was initiated by Laurie Cardoza-Moore, founder of the Christian Zionist group Proclaiming Justice to the Nations (PJTN). Cardoza-Moore worked with local Jewish and Christian organizations to bring the resolution to the state legislature.

After years of being a boycott punching bag, supporters of Israel are fighting back.

Bcuz562CEAATXLJ

And don’t think the fight won’t come to academia if BDS continues to rip at the fabric of academic freedom and the free exchange of ideas through its boycotts.

The easy days for BDS are over.

Canada, too, is considering using hate-crime laws against anti-Israel boycotters:

BUSTED! ‘Award-winning’ Palestinian Muslim ‘journalist’ tries to pass off an image of a disabled child being treated by Israel as a ‘victim of Gaza war.’

A Palestinian Muslim ‘journalist’ has been caught cynically using a picture of a severely disabled Palestinian child for propaganda purposes, falsely claiming his limbs were blown off by the Israeli military during last summer’s conflict with Gaza.

INN Mohammed Omer – who started the Rafah Today blog and has written for numerous major news outlets including Al Jazeera, the Washington Report on Middle East Affairs, the New StatesmanAftonbladet and others – received the Martha Gellhorn Prize for Journalism in 2008.

The Prize is granted to journalists who “tell an unpalatable truth, validated by powerful facts.” 

But ironically, Omer’s reporting skills have been exposed as anything but truthful after a tweet he posted Sunday, featuring a Palestinian toddler from Gaza he claims is “one of the last Gaza war victims,” referring to last summer’s Operation Protective Edge.

But the picture in question is of Mohammed al-Farra, a toddler from Gaza with a rare genetic disease who has been living at Israel’s Tel Hashomer hospital with his grandfather after being abandoned by his parents. Soon after being exposed, Omer removed the tweet – which had been retweeted dozens of times by then. 

Omer was called out by an Israeli blogger and activist David Ha’ivri, who noted that the only way he could have gotten hold of the picture was by lifting it from an article about Al-Farra and his treatment in an Israeli hospital – cynically co-opting the young child’s suffering for the sake of cheap propaganda.

DENMARK: Four buses set on fire in apparent anti-Israel attack

J Post The apparent arson may have been a reaction to a controversy surrounding an advertising campaing urging people to boycott products from Israeli settlements. The attack comes a week after a pro-Palestinian group was ordered by Mavia, the country’s bus operator, to take down advertisements calling for a boycott of Israeli goods.

The advertisements which were removed from 35 public buses featured two woman beside the quote:  “Our conscience is clean! We neither buy products from the Israeli settlements nor invest in the settlement industry.”

It has since been revealed that the majority of complaints about the advertisements were written in English, leading many to conclude that it was the organized work of a foreign lobby campaign. 

The Danish Palestinian Friendship Association told AFP that the removal of the ads was “a clear attempt to deny us our freedom of speech”.  “There is nothing whatsoever about this campaign that is harmful, discriminatory or hateful in any way,” Fathi El-Abed added.

UK ELECTION NEWS: Virulent Jew hating, Hamas supporting George Galloway has been ousted

GOOD NEWS: Two radical MPs with history of anti-Semitic tinged comments, George Galloway and David Ward, lose their elections, proving ‘Jew-baiting doesn’t pay.’ NOT SO GOOD NEWS: They appear to have been replaced by two Muslim candidates.

George-Galloway

INN  As David Cameron’s Conservative party seals its victory in Thursday’s UK general elections, two radically anti-Israeli MPs infamous for a long past of comments edging on anti-Semitism have lost their posts.

In Bradford West, MP George Galloway failed in his re-election bid, with Labor’s Naseem Shah thrashing him soundly in the polls. Shah won 19,977 votes, whereas Galloway’s Respect party fielded a mere 8,557, and George Grant of the Conservative party came third with 6,160.

After winning, Shah said Galloway’s election campaign had “demeaned democracy,” and she told him “you have been sent on your way.” But the radical MP apparently was not to be deterred, announcing his intentions to run for the post of London Mayor.

Galloway’s antics recently included one of his party’s PR people booting a Jewish reporter from an event, and pointing out he was a Jew, at which point Galloway’s crowd turned on the man and began physically assaulting him, calling him a “f**king Jew.

The MP also recently declared his constituency an “Israel-free zone,” prompting charges of racism, which were also made after he walked out of a public debate when he found out his opponent was Israeli, snarling “I don’t debate with Israelis.”

Another anti-Israeli MP lost his post as well, with David Ward of the Liberal Democrat party falling in Bradford East. Imran Hussain of Labor ousted him with 19,312 votes, as opposed to Ward’s 12,228, and Iftikhar Ahmed of the Conservative party trailed with 4,682.

Ward’s Liberal Democrat party was soundly routed in the elections, only winning a total of eight seats out of a total of 650 seats according to late vote counts on Friday morning ahead of the announcement of final results.

Liberal Democrats temporarily suspended David Ward for remarks about ‘the Jews’ and reference to Israel as an apartheid state

Ward has made a long series of harshly anti-Israel tweets condoning terrorism. During last summer’s terror war by Hamas, he wrote, “The big question is – if I lived in #Gaza would I fire a rocket? – probably yes.”

Before International Holocaust Memorial Day in 2013, he accused “the Jews” of not learning their lesson in the Holocaust.

Many Palestinians admit they would rather live under Israeli rule than Hamas rule

israelpaliflag1“Hamas wanted us butchered so it could win the media propaganda war against Israel.” Now that the smoke has cleared from the recent Israel/Gaza conflict the truth of what really happened is finally beginning to emerge. Hamas – the terrorist regime which controls Gaza – does not come out of it well.

Breitbart

“We are under Hamas occupation, and if you ask most of us, we would rather be under Israeli occupation… We miss the days when we were able to work inside Israel and make good money. We miss the security and calm Israel provided when it was here.” — S., graduate of an American university, former Hamas sympathizer.

Hamas tortures a man in the street

These quotes were collected by Mudar Zarhan, a Jordanian-Palestinian writer and activist at the Gatestone Institute, who used his contacts in the West Bank to secure secret interviews with friends and family members in Gaza. All spoke anonymously because of the understandable fear that if their identities were revealed they would face execution by the ruthless Hamas regime.

What the interviews show is that many of the deaths attributed to Israel during the conflict were in fact caused directly or indirectly by Hamas.

Some were opponents of the regime – often Fatah members – who were shot as “Israeli spies” pour encourager les autres. One – Ayman Taha – was a senior Hamas leader murdered by his own side but supposedly martyred, according to Hamas press release by Israeli air strikes. Others were killed while demonstrating against Hamas on the streets.

Testimonials from Palestinians about Hamas torture

According to D, a store owner: “There were two major protests against Hamas during the third week of thewar. When Hamas fighters opened fire at the protesters in the BaitHanoun area and the Shijaiya, five were killed instantly. I saw thatwith my own eyes. Many were injured. A doctor at Shifa hospital told methat 35 were killed at both protests. He went and saw their bodies atthe morgue.”

Many more deaths were caused by Hamas’s refusal to allow Gazans to take shelter from Israeli attacks.

S., a medical worker, told Zarhan: “The interviews provide a version of events which could scarcely be more different from the one promulgated by most of the world’s mainstream media during Operation Protective Edge, where the Israeli assault was presented as brutal, indiscriminate and almost entirely unjustified.”

Young Palestinian girl blames Hamas for wars

Israel’s claims that it was doing everything possible to avoid civilian casualties went largely unreported. So too did the Hamas weapons caches under mosques, the rockets fired from hospitals and the vast network of tunnels built to facilitate a planned cross-border spectacular – timed for the Jewish New Year which began yesterday – whereby Hamas terrorists planned to kill or kidnap as many Israelis as possible.

Partly this was the result of reporting restrictions. All journalists operating from inside Gaza were aware that if they failed to toe the Hamas line they would be immediately expelled – or worse.

But the bias was mainly ideological. Many of the media organisations reporting on Gaza – from the BBC and Channel 4 News to the New York Times – were predisposed to the idea that the Palestinians were the innocent victims of an Israeli overreaction to a few harmless missiles lobbed over the border by an oppressed and desperate people at the end of their tether. 

Hamas beating up civilians in the streets

It was as a result of the political outcry created by media reports of weeping mothers and dead babies that Israel – as usual in these bi-annual wars – was forced to withdraw prematurely before it could fully protect its citizens’ interests by destroying Hamas’s military infrastructure.

PRO-SHARIA, ANTI-ISRAEL, LESBIAN RABBI’s guerilla war on Pamela Geller’s anti-Islam ads in Philadelphia

HoltzmanLinda Holtzman (photo right), a lesbian, is the senior rabbi at Mishkan Shalom, a synagogue in Philadelphia, and author of My Life as a Lesbian Rabbi” in Lesbian Rabbis: The First GenerationHoltzman, who has made a career of liberal activism, ventured into new territory when she began slapping black-and-yellow ‘hate speech’ stickers on the back of Adolf Hitler’s head. 

pbuses29

Philly.com  Hitler is featured in an anti-Islam ad displayed on SEPTA buses this month, and Holtzman and other Jewish activists have launched a campaign of guerrilla protest.

Holtzman, 62, is on the faculty of the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College in Wyncote and has been active in campaigns against gun violence, for Palestinian rights, for illegal immigrants, and for a higher minimum wage. She said she was disappointed by the lack of reaction to the Hitler ads. But not a word about this:

hiltler_avait_raison-vi

They are pasting stickers that are a parody of SEPTA’s own “Dude, It’s Rude” pro-civility ad campaign onto the anti-Islam ads: “Dude It’s Rude . . . Hate Speech – Really?” “It’s our Jewish obligation to stand up and acknowledge there is oppression in our society and act on the behalf of our friends and neighbors,” Holtzman said Tuesday. “Muslims are faced with deep prejudice. For us not to speak feels like a deep disgrace.” What about this?

BrERNzICYAAZVD0-vi

Linda Holtzman is of the 8 Rabbis on the Rabbinical Council of The Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP)–an organization named by the Anti-Defamation League as one of the 10 most anti-Israel organizations in AmericaAccording to the ADL analysis JVP, the organization with which these Rabbis are involved:…calls for an end to U.S. aid to Israel, accuses Israel of “apartheid” policies, and supports divestment campaigns against Israel. Holtzman is one of the Rabbis for Obama that includes many leaders of the Boycott, Divest, and Sanction (BDS) Movement, a movement inimical to Israel’s well-being. as well as founders of the pro-Hamas “Fast for Gaza” initiative.
n00026772-r-b-004
Even worse, Holtzman eagerly jumped into bed with designated terrorist group CAIR to protest AGAINST anti-sharia legislation in Pennsylvania., even playing the Nazi card at CAIR-PA’s press conference. “The echoes for me are strong of Germany in the 1930s,” she said, “when repeatedly Jewish law was brought forward and defamed in the courts as a means of defaming all of Jewish tradition.” Aside from the sheer ugliness of her analogy, Shari’a could be “defamed” only by spreading inaccuracies about it. The bill correctly labels Shari’a as “inherently hostile to our constitutional liberties.” 
CBNsbLgUQAAJ-Qa.jpg-large

She and a loose coalition of activists say they have been stickering the bus ads almost since the provocative images began appearing a month ago, after a federal court ruling that SEPTA had to accept the ads. The anti-Islam ads will soon come down, as the monthlong, $30,000 advertising contract expires at the end of this week, Williams said.

ZSvideoMEMRIEgyptianClerics1-vi

The ads, which read, “Islamic Jew-Hatred: It’s in the Quran,” were paid for by the American Freedom Defense Initiative, an organization underwritten by a Jewish activist, Pamela Geller, an outspoken critic of Islam. The ads feature a photograph of a 1941 meeting between Hitler and Hajj Amin al-Husseini, a Palestinian Arab nationalist who made radio broadcasts supporting the Nazis.

“I would support other actions, like marching at the bus depots,” Holtzman said. “If these ads just become part of the accepted background of what it means to live in America, that feels awful to me.” (Good, go live in Gaza with your Hamas pals)

UNIVERSITY OF NORTH CAROLINA’s radical Muslim students ‘don’t feel safe’ on campus after counter-jihad activist David Horowitz speaks there

If a conservative political activist like David Horowitz makes you feel unsafe on campus, then perhaps the Islamic terrorists have won. Horowitz recently spoke to an audience at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, invited by the College Republicans to address issues about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and terror-linked Muslim groups on campus.

28296_horowitzf

According to student-newspaper accounts, Horowitz said “that student organizations like the Muslim Students’ Association and Students for Justice in Palestine are connected to terrorist organizations.”  Horowitz added that SJP and the MSA — along with the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas, Fatah, Iran and Hezbollah — intend to “kill the Jews, to push them into the sea.”

After Horowitz’s speech, some UNC students began an online campaign called #NotSafeUNC to show how they have felt discriminated against on and around campus. The campaign is not just for Arab and Muslim students, but for any student who identifies as a marginalized person.

However, as you will see by the tweets below, this stupid hashtag campaign has backfired.

Daily Tarheel  Horowitz runs the Horowitz Freedom Center, a think tank that “combats the efforts of the radical left and its Islamist allies to destroy American values.” He’s also a critic of academia who has written books that name American professors who he believes teach radical ideologies. After playing a 10-minute video that attempted to give background to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Horowitz addressed students, faculty and community members directly.

Most professors on university campuses indoctrinate their students with leftist views, he said, adding that student groups such as the Muslim Students’ Association and Students for Justice in Palestine are connected to terrorist organizations. “The goal of SJP, the MSA and the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas and Fatah, and Iran and Hezbollah is to kill the Jews, to push them into the sea,” Horowitz said. 

He argued that activists who claim to be defending the human rights of Palestinians are really attempting to erode support for Israel. He believes these activists are persuaded by Muslims and the Arab states surrounding Israel to attack the Jewish state, saying that, “Arabs are racists.”

Although the name of the speech referred to “paths toward peace,” Horowitz said that the existing peace process being pursued between Israel and Palestine is fiction.

Tali deGroot, a UNC junior and co-chairwoman of J Street UNC, an advocacy group devoted to peace between Israel and Palestine, spoke up during the question-and-answer session, raising a problem with Horowitz’s categorization of Muslims as backward and violent. 

“(Horowitz) blatantly ignored the realities on the ground in the Middle East,” deGroot said later in an email. “He claimed that to solve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Palestinians had to be killed and coerced into fear until there would be peace. Palestinians are being killed and are ruled by a military occupation, and there is no peace.”

Frank Pray, chairman of UNC College Republicans, helped bring Horowitz to campus, along with Christians United for Israel and Young America’s Foundation. Pray said more attention needs to be given to reforming the MSA and SJP in light of Horowitz’s assertions about connections to terrorist groups. 

“I think it’s important to have a variety of views on college campuses,” he said. Pray said police were present because there have been past threats directed at Horowitz

Jerusalem belongs to Israel. There is no West and East Jerusalem. Jerusalem is Jerusalem – the capital of Israel, and the Muslims there are the illegal occupiers

The village of Nabi Samwil is surrounded by Israeli neighborhoods and a national park which makes it impossible for Muslims to expand and build. The Muslim residents are closely monitored by Israel in order to protect the Jews from more Muslim attacks.

Because they are on the Israeli side of the wall in Jerusalem, they must pass through Israeli military checkpoints to get to Ramallah and are restricted as to which products they can bring back into Israel. They are only allowed in when an Israeli liaison gives them permission  Because of this, they consider their life a tragedy, especially as more and more Jews move into the area. Imagine that, more and more Jews moving into the Israeli capital of Israel – Jerusalem. Here’s an idea, cupcake, go move to Gaza or one of the other 56 Muslim majority nations if you don’t like it.

JERICHO: No Jews Allowed

250px-PikiWiki_Israel_15003_Jericho_synagogue_mosaicCommonly known as “the oldest city in the world,” Jericho is an important historical, cultural, and political center located northwest of the Dead Sea. The Jericho Synagogue in the Royal Maccabean winter palace dates from 70-50 BC.

The city is perhaps best known from the Biblical story of a great victory over its Canaanite citizens by the Israelite leader Joshua. In the story, the walls of the heavily fortified city were destroyed with divine assistance during the year 1400 b.c. The site of ancient Jericho, known today as Tell es-Sultan, has been the focus of several archaeological excavations to investigate the Biblical story. The original settlement was built on a hill, or “tell”. The results of these excavations suggest that the walls of Tell es-Sultan have been built and rebuilt many times, due mainly to collapse caused by earthquakes, which are common in the region.

JERUSALEM: Muslims are desecrating the Temple Mount with filth, garbage, and old toilet seats

These are the same Muslims who throw rocks and verbally harass Jews and Christians who try to visit the Temple Mount, the holiest site in Judaism, but a phony holy site in Islam.

But don’t blame the Muslim savages, Israel should have destroyed the al-Aqsa mosque illegally built on the Temple Mount on Jewish land when they took back Jerusalem in 1967. It’s still not too late.

Iran’s latest Holocaust Denial cartoon contest gets 839 submissions

Organizers launched the cartoon contest centered on the theme of Holocaust denial in late January in response to French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo’s decision to publish caricatures of the Prophet Mohammed.

(What they ignore is the fact that Charlie Hebdo mocked Jews and the Holocaust, too: Below)

A Jew says: "In exchange for the creation of Palestine, I'll accept a one million discount on the six million".  The six million is a reference to the extermination of six million European Jews.

A Jew says: “In exchange for the creation of Palestine, I’ll accept a one million discount on the six million”. The six million is a reference to the extermination of six million European Jews.

This contest legitimizes Holocaust denial and encourages Holocaust deniers to continue their incitement. It ridicules one of the darkest events in human history, and it cheapens the death of millions of Jews who were murdered. The horrors of the Holocaust are still fresh in the collective memory.

The winner of the contest will receive a $12,000 cash prize and their cartoon will be shown at the Palestine Museum of Contemporary Art in Tehran. Second and third place finalists will receive $8,000 and $5,000, respectively.

The first such contest was held in 2006, following Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten’spublication of cartoons depicting Mohammed. At the time, it drew 1,200 submissions from all over the world.

BELGIUM: Jewish kindergarten cannot get insurance due to high risk of Islamic terrorist attacks

A Belgian insurance company has refused to renew the policy of a Jewish kindergarten in Brussels. They cited the recent growth of anti-Semitic attacks on Jewish organizations, adding that the risk of insuring the school was too high.

JewishKindergarten-600x377

RT (h/t 10 News) The European Jewish Kindergarten is located in the same Brussels district as the European Union headquarters and it normally enrolls around 20 to 30 children per year. The decision by the Belgian insurance firm not to renew the school’s insurance policy was taken in relation to a marked increase in the number of terrorist and anti-Semitic attacks on Jewish institutions over the last few years.

A spokesperson for the European Jewish Association said, “The insurance agent contacted us a few days ago with the unpleasant news that the insurance company we’ve worked with up to now is not prepared to extend the kindergarten’s insurance policy, in the current situation, due to the high risk entailed by a Jewish institution,” according to Haaretz.

In May 2014, four people, including an Israeli couple were killed at Brussels Jewish Museum by an Algerian-born militant who had been living in France. It is unfortunate to see that the insurance companies have realized what many European governments have not – Jewish institutions are a target for terrorist attacks.
