Muslim and Leftist supporters of Palestinian terrorist bitch who bombed Israelis and was just convicted of naturalization fraud in Detroit, try to spin her into a ‘victim’

Rasmea-Odeh-Guilty-620x435A defiant Palestinian Muslim terrorist, Rasmieh Odeh, was taken into custody after a federal jury in Detroit convicted her of naturalization fraud. Jurors determined Odeh knowingly lied when she failed to tell U.S. immigration officials that she spent 10 years in an Israeli prison, after being convicted in a series of 1969 Jerusalem bombings that killed two people.

Rasmea-Drop-the-Charges-e1414949988660-620x436

Rasmieh  Yousef Odeh, 66, spent a decade in an Israeli prison for her involvement in a 1969 attack that involved bombs planted at a crowded Jerusalem supermarket and a British consulate, according to a federal indictment. Only one bomb — one of two placed at the supermarket — exploded, killing the two people and wounding several others. Israeli authorities have said the attacks were planned by the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine.

An Israeli military court sentenced Odeh to life in prison in 1970, but she was released 10 years later in a prisoner exchange with the Popular Front. Israel released 76 prisoners in exchange for an Israeli soldier captured in Lebanon, according to Odeh’s indictment.

3rd INTIFADA? Muslims stab and kill woman and IDF soldier, stab two others in separate stabbing attacks

A 25 year-old Israeli woman has been stabbed to death at a bus stop in Judea-Samaria (West Bank), while in a separate incident an IDF soldier was fatally wounded by a suspected Palestinian terrorist at a Tel Aviv train station.

In one of the incidents, an assailant stabbed three Israelis at a bus stop outside the Alon Shvut settlement, leaving a 25-year-old women named as Dalia Lamkus dead and two others wounded. The knifeman was then apprehended and shot by a security guard.

RT  The first incident happened at the Alon Shvut junction in the Gush Etzion area of the West Bank, as a car pulled up to the side of the road, with the driver getting out a stabbing three people in total. The Jerusalem Post report that a guard, who was positioned at the entrance to the settlement, shot the perpetrator, who eventually died from his injuries.

The Israeli Defense Forces have sealed off the area as they look for any potential suspects. The two other victims, a 26 year-old man, who received a stab wound to the stomach and a 50 year-old women who has a light stab wound to the face have both been taken to hospital.

The incident occurred a short distance away from the bus stop where three teenagers — Eyal Yifrah, Naftali Fraenkel and Gil-Ad Shaer — were kidnapped and then killed in June. Earlier in the day, a young man was stabbed by a Palestinian at a train station in Tel Aviv in a suspected terrorist. The army confirmed the victim is an Israeli Defense Forces soldier. He was taken to hospital where he died of serious wounds.  

Police managed to arrest the assailant, who suffered light injuries in a struggle with law enforcement officers. The incident took place at Haganah train station in central Tel Aviv. The victim, believed to be about 20 years old, was taken to the Sheba Medical Center.

“The victim was seriously wounded and transferred to hospital for treatment. The suspect in the attack, a resident of Nablus, escaped from the scene and was detained by members of the police anti-terror unit hiding in a nearby building. A large police force is on the scene,”according tothe Israeli newspaper Haaretz.

 The victim was an Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) soldier, according to the Times of Israel newspaper, while Channel 2 claims that young man received a stab wound to the leg. “A young man of about 20 lay in the road adjacent to the Haganah train station,” said senior Magen David paramedic Moshe Amir, who arrived early on the scene. “He was unconscious, had no pulse and was not breathing. There was a huge crowd at the scene.”

There have now been five attacks against Israeli civilians by Palestinians in the last few weeks, which has left three people dead. On November 5, one person was killed and 17 wounded in two separate incidents that involved Palestinian drivers slamming their vehicles into crowds of Israelis.

A truck with Palestinian number plates deliberately crashed into a group of Israeli soldiers, which injured three, as it tried to target a military checkpoint, according to the IDF. Meanwhile, another motorist slammed into pedestrians near the Jerusalem light rail, killing one Border Police officer and wounding 14 others.  

On October 22, a three-month-old baby was killed and seven people were injured when a car deliberately crashed into a light rail station in Jerusalem as they were getting off a trainThe driver, who was identified as Ibrahim al-Akri, was shot by law enforcement officers as he got out of his car and began to attack civilians in the vicinity with an iron rod.

Tensions have been rising in Jerusalem after Israel blocked access to the Temple Mount, which is Judaism’s holiest site and allegedly Islam’s third holiest site.

Palestinian savages erupt in ‘Day of Rage’ against Israeli Temple Mount restrictions after assassination attempt on Israeli leader

Clashes broke out after Palestinian protesters took to the streets in a “Day of Rage” against Israel on Friday, after Israel imposed entry restrictions on the Temple Mount – the third holiest site in Islam, and the holiest place in Judaism.

timthumb.php

RT  Demonstrators shouted anti-Israel slogans and hurled stones, while explosions in the vicinity of the protests were audible. Israeli forces fired rubber bullets at the protesters, who had been throwing petrol bombs, according to Reuters. Protests were also met with tear gas.

Trouble has been brewing for two weeks over the area which is known to Muslims as the Noble Sanctuary and to Jews as Temple Mount. On Friday, Israel’s Sephardi chief rabbi forbade the presence of Jews.

This is the place to call on the esteemed public to stop this incitement, from here a call is heard, forbidding any Jews from going up to the Temple Mount – from here a call is heard to stop this, so that the blood of the People of Israel may stop being spilled,” he said.

At the Qalandia checkpoint between Ramallah and Jerusalem, protesters were fired on by Israeli troops. The checkpoint lies north of the Al-Aqsa mosque. 

Several people were arrested for throwing rocks, an activity which could soon be punished by up to 20 years in prison if a proposed change to the Israeli penal code goes ahead.

For several decades, prayer access has been banned to Temple Mount by Israel, and only Muslims are permitted to pray there. However, Christians and Jews retain access. More right-wing Jews have been lobbying for stronger rights and unrest has spawned from right-wing Jewish activists insisting that Jews be allowed to pray at Temple Mount.

PM Netanyahu and Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman have warned the activists to stop inflaming the situation. The Bayit Yehudi and Likud parties “only know how to light a flame and to exploit a situation for their own political gains,” Liberman said.

The shrine is currently under the administration of Muslim authorities.

In September, Israeli forces decided to only allow Palestinians over the age of 50 to enter the site. The Palestinian population feared Israel was going to restrict access to the mosque for all Muslims. That caused the latest in a series of clashes with Israeli police at the site.

“It’s a group of extreme right wingers who are really playing with fire,” Haaretz columnist Gideon Levy told RT. “It’s not only about the Palestinian community or even not the Arab states – this is about the Muslim world, and those provocateurs don’t seem to care at all.”

Protesters also took to the streets in Amman, Jordan. Jordan recalled its ambassador on Wednesday and Sheikh Hamam, head of the country’s opposition Muslim Brotherhood party, told crowds in central Amman: “Why are you keeping the embassy of the Jews? It should be demolished with everyone in it.”

PALESTINIAN-ISRAEL-CONFLICT

The Al-Aqsa mosque, located in Jerusalem’s Old City, is the third holiest site in Islam. It sits within an enclosed compound known as the Noble Sanctuary, which also includes the Dome of the Rock, an Islamic shrine built on the site of the sacred stone which is believed to mark the place from where the Prophet Muhammad ascended to heaven.

The Dome of the Rock is also believed by Jewish scholars to be the location of the first and second temples, both of which were destroyed – the first by the Babylonians in 586 BCE, the second by the Romans in 70 CE. Within Judaism the entire area, including Al-Aqsa, is known as Temple Mount and is equally as sacred.

3rd INTIFADA? In a second vehicular jihad attack yesterday, three Israeli soldiers were injured when a Muslim van rammed into them near Jerusalem

One soldier was in serious condition and two suffered moderate injuries. The soldiers were evacuated to hospitals in Jerusalem for treatment, and a hospital official said the injuries were not life-threatening.

Times of Israel  In a graphic video posted online which appeared to show the incident, the three soldiers are clearly visible on the side of the road as traffic passed. The white van approached from the left-hand side and, without slowing, plowed into the soldiers and drove off.

The attack came hours after an East Jerusalem man drove his van into a group of pedestrians in the capital, killing a Border Police officer and injuring 11 other people, one of them critically. Shortly after the attack, Hamas lauded the attack on the soldiers.

JPost  The IDF raided the home of the man who they believe is responsible for the vehicular terror attack which wounded three soldiers, the Bethlehem-based Ma’an News Agency reported. According to the report, Israeli intelligence suspect that Hammam Masalma, from the southern West Bank town of Beit Awwa was behind Wednesday night’s attack. 

During the raid of Masalma’s home in Beit Awwa early Thursday morning, Israeli forces arrested four of his relatives, however the suspect himself was not at home and remains at large, Ma’an reported. A Palestinian from the Hebron region was arrested for suspected involvement in the attack after he turned himself in to security forces. The man is being interrogated, as an alleged accomplice.

3rd INTIFADA? Hamas terrorist rams his car into crowded Jerusalem train platform, killing 1, injuring 13

A MUSLIM driver of a commercial van ran over pedestrians at a train stop in eastern Jerusalem on Wednesday, killing an Israeli border police officer and injuring 13 other people before getting out of his vehicle and attacking people with a metal bar, Israeli police said. Police shot and killed the attacker, identified by Israeli authorities as a member of Hamas.

CNN  The attack came on another day of tension between Israelis and Palestinians over Jerusalem’s Temple Mount — one of the holiest sites in Judaism and Islam — where Israeli police clashed with Palestinians on Wednesday.

No motive for the van attack was immediately released, but Hamas backed it in a text message to the news media: “Hamas blesses the action. What is happening in Jerusalem is pushing us to prepare for war.”

Israeli police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld called the incident “a terrorist attack.” On October 22, a Palestinian man rammed his car into commuters waiting at a light rail stop in Jerusalem, killing a baby and wounding several other people.

KENT STATE UNIVERSITY Muslim professor resigns rather than apologize for his virulent antisemitism

Kent State University professor has resigned from the editorial board of an academic journal following Watchdog’s publication of a letter in which he accused pro-Israel academics of being “directly responsible for the murder of over 1,400 Palestinian children, women and elderly civilians.”

Assad Jibril Pino

Truth Revolt  In an unsolicited Nov. 2 email to Watchdog.org (full text below), associate professor Julio Pino, also known by his Muslim name Assad Jibril Pino, said his fellow editors at Latin American Perspectives have demanded that he apologize and publicly retract his remarks, published in Watchdog’s Aug. 6 and Aug. 13 articles.

In response, Pino attacked the journal and resigned.

“I apologize for not recognizing earlier that there is but one path to liberation – daily blows against the empire,” Pino wrote, adding that he was sorry “for having served on the same editorial board with Yankee stooges and frightened, flinching pussycats.”

Most of his colleagues, he wrote, “study Latin America for the same reason [Adolf] Eichmann learned Hebrew: to better serve a ravenous, rapacious empire – in this case, the Washington-Tel Aviv Axis.”

Pino’s earlier comments – he called for “jihad” and declared Israel “the spiritual heir to Nazism” – have already earned him an unsigned condemnation on the Kent State University website. (You can read the text of the condemnation here.) Pino also claimed that Allah will inflict a “painful punishment” on those who stand with Israel.

When asked in August for further comment on Pino’s open letter, Kent State spokesman Bob Burford told Watchdog, “That is all we have to release at this time.”

In 2002, Pino published a eulogy in the campus paper praising Palestinian terrorist Ayat al-Akras, who murdered two Israelis, Rachel Levy and Chaim Smadar,” and “Pino has been accused of having ties to terrorists and had his home raided in 2009 by the U.S. Secret Service,” according to the Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America.

During an Oct. 25, 2011 campus event, featuring Ishmael Khaldi, the first Bedouin to serve in Israel’s Foreign Service, Pino got into a heated exchange with the diplomat that resulted in the history professor storming out of the lecture shouting “Death to Israel!”

GERMANY: Islamic Jew Hatred causes Jewish student leader to resign in Offenbach.

ummahgerman-viBERLIN – The student spokesman for the city of Offenbach’s school system, Max Moses Bonifer, resigned his post because German Arab Muslim and Turkish Muslim students attacked him and threatened to kill him.

JPost  The German daily FAZ reported on Wednesday that Bonifer said young Muslims have threatened him over the last few weeks because he wore a kippa with a Star of David and yelled at him: “We spit on your people. We’ll find you and kill you.” 

BN-EM888_0911GE_G_20140911174912

Bonifer told the weekly German Jewish paper Jüdische Allgemeine that “since the Gaza conflict in the summer, youths of Arab and Turkish origin have regularly insulted me, spat at me and attacked me.” Bonifer said he could no longer represent students who wish death for him and the Jewish people.

Offenbach is a small city in the state of Hesse, with a population of roughly 122,000, and borders the financial capital Frankfurt am Main. More than 16,000 German Muslims live in Offenbach.

simularities-between-islam-and-nazis Dr. Elvira Grözinger, from the German branch of Scholars for Peace in the Middle East, told The Jerusalem Post on Sunday, “the anti-Semitism, especially by Muslim students at German schools, is becoming a very serious problem also for the teachers and school directors who have to deal with it daily.”

6a00d8341cb49853ef00e54f828f848834-640wi

She added,” It is absolutely necessary to counteract religious and political indoctrination among Muslim youth which is a threat to the German civil society as a whole not just to Jews, but… to inform students and teaching staff about anti-Semitism, Judaism, Jewish history, Israel and the history of the Middle East conflict. At present, many school books include biased information about these topics. The German Chancellor demanded this in public, and now concrete steps must follow. “ 

A little over six weeks ago, Chancellor Angela Merkel and her cabinet took part in a rally in Berlin, titled “Stand Up: Jew Hatred – Never Again!.” Bonifer said that the steering committee of the school council did not defend him and did not provide any support. He is slated to end his post at the end of November as student spokesman. He told FAZ that he has faced attacks for nearly year. Bonifer added that the city of Offenbach ignored the rise of radical German Salafists – a form of Islam that preaches a radical adherence to the Koran.

Muslims regularly clash with police in Germany

Sacha Stawski, the head of the Frankfurt-based Honestly Concerned media watchdog group, which tracks anti-Semitism, told the Post on Sunday that the “rally in Berlin did not fail, but the politicians who did not follow words with action [did].” 

Stawski said he was not surprised about the outbreak of anti-Semitism in Offenbach because one teenage class in Landsberg near the East German city of Leipzig allegedly used Nazi slogans, including “Heil Hitler,” to greet each other. The case of students wearing Hitler mustaches near Leipzig made headlines last week.

1414580884987_wps_14_Class_of_German_kids_is_u

Stawski termed the outbreak of anti-Semitism in Offenbach “cruel, a scandal, and hateful.” The Green Party Mayor Peter Schneider, said anti-Semitism, racism and xenophobia will not be tolerated in Offenbach. But the Green Party has, according to critics, contributed to an anti-Israel climate in Germany. The national party mounted a vigorous campaign in 2013 to demarcate Israeli products from the disputed territories.

Abdelkader Rafoud, the head of head of Offenbach’s advisory board for foreign immigration, termed the anti-Semitic attacks on Bonifer “very bad and entirely unacceptable.” He plans to speak to representatives of the of Muslim community.

Stawski sees a German-wide problem of failed integration of German Muslims. He said many lived in a “parallel society” divorced from mainstream German life.

DECLARATION OF WAR? Israel shuts down the al-Aqsa mosque

What a great opportunity to destroy this monstrosity once and for all and build the Third Temple.

RT  The Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem has been closed to all worshipers for the first time since 1967. Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas called the closure a ‘declaration of war.’ Both Jewish and Muslim worshipers will be prohibited from visiting the site “until further notice,” Israel’s public security minister said. Following the announcement, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu ordered “a significant hike” in the number of police forces patrolling Jerusalem, Naharnet daily reports.

The closure of Al-Aqsa, Islam’s third holiest site, followed the shooting of a right-wing Jewish activist, Yehuda Glick, on Wednesday. Glick had advocated for greater Jewish access to the Temple Mount UPDATE: Jerusalem Arab Killed in Police Shootout, Suspect in Glick Assassination Attempt

Palestinian authorities quickly responded to the move, saying it was a “dangerous and blatant challenge”that would lead to more tension and instability in an already volatile situation. This dangerous Israeli escalation is a declaration of war on the Palestinian people and its sacred places and on the Arab and Islamic nation,” Abbas’ spokesman Nabil Abu Rudeina quoted him as saying.

FRANCE’S FIGHTING JEWS – Fighting IslamoNazi antisemitism in France with physical force, not verbal pleas

Unknown-2According to the French Interior Ministry, anti-Semitic incidents have increased 40 percent during the first three months of 2014. And in a country where a whopping 37 percent of the population harbors anti-Semitic attitudes, one Jewish youth group, Betar France, has started to fight back.

At its core, the 90-year-old youth Zionist movement called Betar aims at empowering and promoting leadership within young Jewish communities. But with an increased number of Jews falling victim to anti-Semitic assaults on the streets of France, the Parisian sect of Betar resumed training five months ago in Krav Maga—a martial art used by the Israeli Defense Forces.

ISRAELI MP calls for a ban on the offensively loud ‘Muslim Calls to Prayer’ across Israel

makeitstopA member of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahi’s coalition is formulating legislation to put strict limits on the Islamic call to prayer, known as the Athan, being blasted from mosques in Jerusalem and across Israel. The legislation, that is likely to attract accusations of religious intolerance from Israel’s Muslim minority, claims the prayer calls generate, “intolerable noise” that disrupts citizens’ sleep.

(See for yourself in the video below from Israel)

IB Times  Hundreds of thousands of citizens in Israel, in the Galilee, the Negev, Jerusalem and other areas in central Israel suffer on a common basis from noise that is triggered by muezzin calls in mosques,” states the bill, reported The Telegraph.

A muezzin is a Muslim appointed at a mosque to announce and recite the call to prayer, five times a day, starting as early as 5am. Parliamentarian Robert Ilatov is sponsoring the bill and supporting him is Israel’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Avigdor Lieberman.

The bill will be presented to the ministerial committee for legislation in the next few weeks and would grant the interior minister the autonomy to decide whether or not public address systems can be installed in “homes of prayer” –which in turn will permit Muslim calls to prayer to be banned altogether from mosques if the minister wills.

In defiance of irrelevant international condemnation, Israel continues to build housing in its capital, Jerusalem

jerusalem capital israel

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu authorized on Monday the construction of 1,060 new homes in Jerusalem. According to the plan, 660 apartments are to be built in the Ramat Shlomo neighborhood and 400 in Har Homa. Both neighborhoods are situated in areas perceived as controversial by the United States and the European Union. (Who cares?)

United with Israel  Netanyahu is reportedly also working to improve the infrastructure in Judea and Samaria, including the building and improvement of roads and water facilities as well as boosting the safety and accessibility to the Israeli and Arab populations in the area.

Israel’s Channel 2 reported on Sunday that Netanyahu’s government approved the construction of 2,000 housing units in various locations in Judea and Samaria.

A memorandum distributed by Cabinet Secretary Avichai Mendelblit indicates that there are plans for the building of a promenade in Judea and Samaria in memory of the three Israeli teenagers who were kidnapped and murdered by Hamas terrorists in June.

The European Union (EU) expressed disagreement with Israel’s building plans in Jerusalem and said on Monday it was seeking Israeli clarification on the reports, voicing new concern about the peace process, AFP reports. (Who cares?) 

“It will call once again into serious question Israel’s commitment to a negotiated solution with the Palestinians,” EU foreign affairs chief Catherine Ashton stated. (Who cares?)

Jerusalem-capital-of-Israel2

The European Union could only “condemn such an ill-judged and ill-timed decision” if the plans went ahead, spokeswoman EU Maja Kocijancic said. (Who cares?)

The EU threatened Israel again, stating, “we stress that the future development of relations between the EU and Israel will depend on [its] engagement towards a lasting peace based on a two-state solution.” The EU has previously condemned Israel for its plans to build in its capital and made similar diplomatic threats. (Who cares?)

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at a crossroad

Washington joined the EU in condemning Israel for its building plans in Jerusalem. “We continue to make our position absolutely clear that we view settlement activity as illegitimate and unequivocally oppose unilateral steps that prejudge the future of Jerusalem,” State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki told reporters. (Who cares?)

Responding to the condemnations, a diplomatic source told Arutz Sheva: “Whenever Israel wants to build, the world demands clarification. The best clarification that Israel can provide is that Israel has the right to build anywhere. They’ll shout, they’ll make noise, and they’ll get over it.”

netanyahu

Speaking at the opening of the Knesset’s winter session on Monday, Netanyahu stated: “Israel has every right to build in Jewish neighborhoods of Jerusalem.” “Violence against us is not the result of construction in Jerusalem,” he clarified, “It comes from the desire of our enemies for us not to be here at all.”

Netanyahu has strongly rejected such criticism of Israel’s building in Jerusalem in the past, stating that Jews have a right to homes in Jerusalem, and that he would not discriminate against the Jews.

“I don’t understand this criticism, and I don’t accept this position,” Netanyahu declared. “Arabs in Jerusalem freely buy apartments, and nobody says that is forbidden. I will also not say that Jews cannot buy property in Jerusalem. There cannot be discrimination between Jews and Arabs. This is a normal process, and I see no reason to discriminate.”

“These are neighborhoods in Jerusalem. If you said to me that in some city in the United States or in Mexico, or anywhere else, Jews cannot buy apartments, there would be an uproar,” he added.

Gee, IsraeliAID doesn’t fall into the hands of ISIS…like ObamaAID did

tumblr_mxx8r0tR1t1stmkp8o1_400IsraAID, the first Israeli aid agency to take part in relief efforts for Kurdish refugees in northern Iraq, is set to continue its work helping victims of the brutal Islamic State (ISIS) organization.

393832_355049991174068_100000072107914_1479323_53393568_n

INN (h/t Mike F)  Earlier this month, the NGO supplied beds, blankets, and food to over 1,000 families in the Kurdish city of Duhok, in northern Iraq. The emergency aid was dispatched to help refugees – many of them Christians and Yazidis who have faced the gravest threats from ISIS’s bloody military campaign – with the onset of the notoriously harsh winters of the Kurdistan region.

The convoy arrived at a 14,000-strong refugee camp carrying 2,000 blankets and mattresses, as well as enough powdered milk for all the 1,015 babies under one year of age.  Israeli aid workers were well-received. “They were aware that we were Israeli, and they received us very well. The Kurdish people really love Israel,” said IsraAID’s Founding Director Shahar Zahavi, who added that more aid was on the way.

“We are planning for the harsh winter coming, and alongside the international aid community we are preparing special winterized clothes, blankets, gloves and more. “Israel’s dedication to reach out to the other has no limits or borders. As Jews we are obligated by tradition to care for the other especial those persecuted unjust fully.”
