ISRAELI TWITTER-GATE? Wife of Interior Minister under fire for alleged “racist” tweet she made about Obama

29D91FB300000578-0-image-a-27_1434931870745

Judy Shalom Nir Mozes, a well known face on Israeli TV and the wife of the country’s interior minister Silvan Shalom, quickly deleted the offending tweet – but it was too late to avoid mounting criticism after it immediately made headlines in Israel. Apparently, Mozes has apologized: “I apologize, that was a stupid joke somebody told me.”
What she should have done was to post a follow-up tweet, saying “It isn’t the color of Obama’s skin that’s the problem, it’s the thinness of it.”

[UPDATED] SUDDEN JIHAD SYNDROME? Bosnian (YES, he’s a Muslim as expected) man drives car at 90 mph into crowd of shoppers, before getting out and stabbing elderly bystanders

GOINGMUZZIE2MedA-vi-300x300At least three people are reported dead and another 34 injured. The incident took place in Graz, Austria’s second largest city, and police officers have now sealed off the area. German-language website Krone reported that the man arrested by police is of Bosnian origin. (SEE UPDATE BELOW)

UK Daily Mail (h/t Ros L) The driver did not resist when he was arrested by the police – who say he acted alone – and they have no reason to believe it was an act of terrorism. (If he’s a Muslim, it was terrorism, no doubt inspired by ISIS)

original

Eyewitnesses say the driver rammed into crowds at up to 90mph before he got out and began randomly stabbing bystanders, which included the elderly and policemen. “People were screaming in panic and ran into the shops to get to safety,” according to an eyewitness. A seven-year-old boy and a woman are thought to be among those killed in the onslaught on the main shopping street of Herrengasse.

A local resident told Sky News that her friend saw people flying through the air, adding: ‘Apparently he was attacking elderly people with a knife.’

The governor of the state has described the driver as a ‘deranged lone (MUSLIM?) assassin’ and the police say the man, who is believed to be a 26-year-old Austrian (Bosnian roots), was distressed over ‘family problems’.

He killed two people while speeding towards the main square where he ploughed into an outdoor dining table full of people, a spokesperson for the regional police said during a press conference today.

The busy square was hosting an event relating to the Austrian Formula One Grand Prix which is being held nearby, in the Red Bull Ring in Spielberg, in Steiermark.

Dr Sea Rotmann says her friend told her how the driver was ‘doing between 100km-an-hour and 150km-an-hour’ on the busy road. A waitress at the Pronto restaurant on the main square told the Kleinezeitung website she heard screaming before she even saw the driver.

Simone Zucca added: ‘He raced through the front of the restaurant without braking… He then caught a boy who was thrown against the wall.’ Another eyewitness told the BBC he saw bodies lying on the ground ‘covered in blood’.

About 60 ambulances converged on the scene and the Austrian auto club sent four helicopters to bring the victims to hospitals.  The city council released a statement which read: ‘At 12pm there was an appalling incident in the centre of Graz, which has caused major alarm and left the city deeply shaken.’  

Provincial Governor Hermann Schuetzenhoefer said at least one of his injured victims is in a critical condition. He added: ‘We are shocked and dismayed… there is no explanation and no excuse for this attack. (Yes, there was if he’s a muslim)

accident1

‘We have much to do to ensure cohesion in our community, which has clearly become difficult for many people.’ (Who in Europe is destroying cohesion in a community lately? Hmmmm)

The incident took place in Graz, Austria’s second largest city, and police officers have now sealed off the area.

Police chiefs told the Austrian  Kleine Zeitung newspaper that the suspect got out of the SUV and started stabbing people with a knife. Austria’s APA news agency said two bodies were lying near the scene, covered with blankets. 

SuddenJihadSyndrome

UPDATE: BOSNIAN MUSLIM man, Alen Rizvanović, who ran down and killed several people in Austria yesterday, allegedly was a fan of violent jihad and terrorism supporters.

Frontpage  When Alen Rizvanović plowed into a crowd in an SUV and then got out and began stabbing people with a large knife, the local media and authorities in Austria insisted that the Bosnian Muslim refugee was A: Mentally ill or B. Reacting to a failing marriage. C. Operating under completely inexplicable motives

The authorities have been quick to rule out terrorism and an Islamic connection, but they may have spoken too soon. Of course we don’t know at this stage know Alen Rizvanović’s motives, but his actions were very similar to Muslim terror attacks carried out in Israel, which also involved running people over and then getting out and stabbing them.

A Facebook account registered to a man of the same name also living in Austria suggests that the killer was a devout Muslim. His favorite book appear to be Islamic texts. They include entries like Light of the Koran and the Hadiths of Mohammed.

More troublingly his likes include this Facebook page which promote Islamists like Mohamad al-Arefe who has been linked to Jihadists.

A notorious Saudi cleric preached at a mosque accused of  radicalising three young Britons fighting in Syria.

Although banned from entering Switzerland because of his extremist views, al-Arifi has visited the UK several times. A Sunni Muslim, he has been accused of stirring up tensions with the rival Shia sect, reportedly calling it evil and accusing adherents of kidnapping, cooking and skinning children.

He was briefly arrested by the Saudis, banned from the UAE and from Switzerland for promoting beating women. His views on abusing little girls are sick. In a talk show appearance, al- Arefe gave advice to victims of parental molestation, and urged family members to not call the authorities. According to al-Arefe, “The girl should not be left alone with her father nor should she wear provocative clothing around him.”

And he’s all in on the Jihad.

In another YouTube video cited by the authors of the FDD report, Jonathan Schanzer and Steve Miller, al-Arefe advocates violence against non-Muslims.

“Devotion to jihad for the sake of Allah, and the desire to shed blood, to smash skulls, and to sever limbs for the sake of Allah and in defense of His religion, is, undoubtedly, an honor for the believer,” the Muslim cleric says. “Allah said that if a man fights the infidels, the infidels will be unable to prepare to fight [the Muslims].”

Some skulls were probably smashed when Alen Rizvanović rammed his SUV into a crowd. Alen Rizvanović’s likes also include Naser Oric, a Bosnian war criminal, whom he liked twice. Also liked was Zakir Naik who had said, “Every Muslim should be a terrorist.”

FLYING PIG MOMENT! Writer for far left ‘Salon’ defends Pamela Geller

THE LEFT HAS ISLAM ALL WRONG: Bill Maher, Pamela Geller and the reality that liberals/progressives must finally face. Confusion over Islam and how to relate to it, imperils free speech, without which no secular republic can possibly survive.

Bill Maher, Pam Geller, Nicholas Kristof

Bill Maher, Pam Geller, Nicholas Kristof

SALON  (h/t Robert F) Whatever her views on other matters are, Pamela Geller is right about one thing: last week’s Islamist assault on the “Draw Muhammad” cartoon contest she hosted in Texas proves the jihad against freedom of expression has opened a front in the United States. 

“There is,” she said, “a war on free speech and this violent attack is a harbinger of things to come.”  Apparently undaunted, Geller promises to continue with such “freedom of speech” events.  ISIS is now threatening to assassinate her. 

She and her cohorts came close to becoming victims, yet some in the media on the right and the center-right have essentially blamed her for the gunmen’s attack, just as far too many, last January, surreptitiously pardoned the Kouachi brothers and, with consummate perfidy to human decency, inculpated the satirical cartoonists they slaughtered, saying “Charlie Hebdo asked for it.”

No, they didn’t.

Senior Rabbi in Russia says the ouster of Vladimir Putin would endanger the Jewish population there

Under Putin, a devout Christian, dozens of synagogues have been renovated with Russian government support and a massive Jewish museum was opened in Moscow with state funding.

Haaretz  Alexander Boroda, head of the Chabad-affiliated Federation of Jewish Communities of Russia, made the warning Friday during a talk at Moscow’s 9th annual Jewish learning event organized by Limmud FSU.

“The Jews of Russia must realize the dangers inherent in the possible collapse of the Putin government, understand the rules of the game and be aware of the limitations,” Boroda said at a sessions, according to a translation provided by Limmud FSU.

The Moscow conference, which drew 1,400 participants, opened Friday at the state-owned Klyasma resort just outside the Russian capital.

Boroda’s Federation is among several Russian Jewish organizations that credit Putin for facilitating efforts to re-consolidate Russia’s Jewish community of 350,000 after decades of communist repression.

Under Putin, dozens of synagogues have been renovated with government support and a massive Jewish museum was opened in Moscow with state funding.

“In Russia, there is virtually unlimited freedom of religion and the Jewish community must ensure this situation continues,” Boroda said. “The support for religious institutions is wider than in the United States and defense of Jews against manifestations of anti-Semitism is greater than in other European countries. We do not have the privilege of losing what we have achieved and the support of the government for the community.”

All Russian Jews and especially those considering action against the Putin administration, Boroda said, “must understand the grave dangers that they take upon themselves and the potential consequences.” 

Such endorsements of Putin by Jewish leaders have exposed them to criticism by leftist Jews and Jews in Ukraine, who oppose Putin’s crackdown on civil liberties and rivals, annexation of Ukrainian land and perceived nationalism. The state of Israel did not criticize Putin’s actions in the Ukraine.

Muslim accuses article in the ‘Medical Post’ of being “racist” because it says the current leader of al-Qaeda, Dr. Ayman Al-Zawahiri, is a MUSLIM doctor

memed38b9709159bf0b8-viDear Editors of the Medical Post and its publisher, Rogers Digital Media: “I am deeply disappointed at the ‘racism’ embedded within ‘Physicians Famous for their Religious Leanings,’ the article published in the April 7th edition of Medical Post.”

 The article discusses the professional work of specific physicians in the context of their faith. The article recognizes Pope John XXI who was a practicing physician and teacher.  Dr. Schwitzer was an author of a biography on Sebastian Bach and a Nobel Peace Prize winner in 1952. Dr. Damadian was credited with contributions that led to the invention of the MRI.

The article also recognizes Ayman Al-Zawahiri, al-Qaeda leader and an architect of the 9/11 attacks, as a Muslim physician noted for his faith.

11188368_10155461981180282_6352688618868329420_n

Among those named in the article, three of four physicians are of various Christian faiths. Each of those three are noted for their contributions to humanity. Al-Zawahiri is the only one on the list who one who is identified as Muslim and is an undeniable criminal.

Accomplished Muslims physicians, past or present, are not difficult to identify. A Google search for “famous Muslim physicians” leads to long lists of them. 

Al-Zawahiri’s politics, tactics, or religious beliefs are not representative of Muslim physicians. By citing Al-Zawahiri and comparing him to positive, non-Muslim examples, the Medical Post implicitly suggests that there is something inherently wrong with being Muslim and providing medical care. (There IS, and nobody in the West who knows anything about Islam and values life would ever allow him/herself to be treated by a Muslim doctor)

The framing of the article perpetuates stereotypes of Muslims as terrorists. The Islamophobic article is ultimately disrespectful and hurtful to Muslim physicians. (Oh, Boo Hoo, who cares?)

I request that Medical Post and Rogers Digital Media publicly withdraw the article and publish an apology that will be available both in the digital and print versions of the Medical Post. I expect that the Medical Post and Rogers Digital Media will take this opportunity to internally reflect about their values and publicly outline how the incident will change their internal processes.

Sincerely,

Dr. Amina Jabbar BSW, MSc, MD, Department of Internal Medicine, University of Toronto

Australian radio host under fire for allegedly calling a terrorist-looking Muslim football player a “terrorist”

Maybe it was a freudian slip? Radio host denies calling AFL’s first Muslim player a ‘terrorist’ at a function.

280CEA2000000578-3057045-image-a-65_1430119302454 UK Daily Mail  Melbourne radio broadcaster John Burns has been revealed as the media personality alleged to have vilified Richmond’s Bachar Houli. Burns, who hosts 3AW morning show Ross and John with Ross Stevenson, is alleged to have referred to Houli as a ‘terrorist’ at a club function at the MCG on Friday night during the Tigers’ match against Melbourne.

The radio station confirmed a complaint has been made against Mr Burns and said he doesn’t recall making the comment, and is ‘mortified’ by the allegation. John Burns said a friend sitting with him at the time also didn’t recall the comment being made.

Mr Burns spoke to 3AW’s Tom Elliott on Monday afternoon and said that while he didn’t recall making such a comment, he apologised unreservedly if any offence had been caused. ‘The game was underway and the person in front of me turned around and said ‘what did you say’?’ Mr Burns said on the radio show.  ‘I wasn’t aware of having said anything really and I don’t recall what I said but he alleged that I made a comment that was offensive.

This is one scary-looking muslim

When quizzed by Tom Elliot on how much liquor he had consumed during the game, Mr Burns said he had enjoyed himself but alcohol did not contribute to the events.  He said he couldn’t even begin to imagine what words of his might have been misconstrued but went on to tell Tom Elliot that he ‘didn’t say anything like accidental tourists, I wouldn’t think’.

‘I can’t recall saying anything that I intended to be offensive to anybody on the other side of the game.’  Mr Elliot told Mr Burns that he has heard the term ‘terrorist’ and ‘jihadist’ being used to describe Bachar Houli on numerous occasions at matches, however Mr Burns said he has never witnessed this.

What to say when ignorant people and/or Muslims accuse you of being ‘racist,’ ‘Islamophobic,’ ‘xenophobic,’ or a ‘hater’ when you honestly criticize Islam

To help you fight the war against creeping Islamization, here are answers to several common responses you are likely to get for your anti-Islam views:

CLICK ON THE LINKS BELOW:

1. But it is just a small minority of extremists.

2. My friend is a Muslim and he’s really nice.

3. What you’re saying is racist.

4. Aren’t you being religiously intolerant? 

5. Christianity is just as bad. 

6. Not all Muslims are terrorists.

7. We can’t go to war with 1.3 billion Muslims!

8. Are you an Islamophobe?

9. Isn’t this bigotry?

10. Are you a hatemonger? I don’t believe in promoting hatred.

11. You should really talk to some Muslims. You’re getting all this from books.

12. There are peaceful passages in the Qur’an too.

13. You can pretty much justify anything if you quote it out of context.

14. There are millions of Muslims in this country and they’re not blowing things up.

15. You are a xenophobe.

16. Fundamentalism is fundamentalism.

17. Haven’t mosques and churches and synagogues sat side-by-side in the Middle East for a thousand years?

18. You’re taking the verses of the Quran out of context.

19. But jihad is an internal struggle.

20. Criticizing Islam will push the moderates into the arms of the extremists.

21. You’re cherry-picking verses out of the Quran.

22. Wouldn’t it be better to support the peaceful Muslims (than to criticize the violent ones)?

23. What about the good verses in the Quran?

24. The majority of Muslims are peace-loving people.

25. Who are we to tell Muslims to change their beliefs?
