Two More Arrested in Jihadist shooting on Jewish Day School in Toulouse, mass murderer killed three Jewish children, a rabbi and three paratroopers

Posted on: Dec4 2012

Of course devout Muslim didn't act alone. There were many Muslims working with Merah. There are millions like him, just waiting for their opportunity.

… The papers showed he had made more than 1,800 calls to over 180 contacts in 20 different countries, Le Monde said…

Toulouse-girl

 The savage's heart was soothed by his murders in accord with the Qur'an's promise:

"Fight
them, Allah will torment them by your hands, and bring them to
disgrace, and will assist you against them, and will heal the hearts of
the believers, and will still the anger of your hearts." — Qur'an
9:14-15

Mohamed Merah slaughtered French soldiers, Jewish children and a
Rabbi in the cause of Islam. Mohamed Merah videoed his cold-blooded
slaughter. In the video he is seen yanking the terrified 8-year-old
(above) Myriam Monsenego by her hair — then firing a bullet into her
head while he holds her. Officials believe Merah strapped on a camera
before each murder and posted the videos on jihadi Web sites, where he
believed they would inspire other al Qaeda wannabes.

Toulouse shootings: man and woman arrested over suspected links to killer Guardian  (thanks to Van)

Pair held on suspicion of links to Mohamed Merah, who killed three Jewish children, a rabbi and three paratroopers

A man and a woman have been arrested in southern France on suspicion of links to an Islamic militant who killed Jewish schoolchildren and French paratroopers this year, the Paris prosecutor's office said on Tuesday.

The
arrests, the first in the case since March, may throw new light on
suspicions that Mohamed Merah did not act alone in the attacks, which
left seven dead. Merah was later killed in a shootout with police.

One of Merah's brothers, Abdelkader, is already in custody on preliminary charges of complicity in the killings. Their oldest brother is among those who have suggested a third man may have played a role.

The
man arrested on Tuesday was picked up in the city of Albi in southern
France, and the woman – his ex-girlfriend – was arrested in Toulouse,
the prosecutor's office said. It released no other details.

An official with the prosecutor's office, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the man was the key suspect.

The Sipa news agency said the man was suspected of helping obtain the scooter used in the attacks.

Merah
told police during a standoff before his death that he carried out the
killings of three paratroopers, three Jewish schoolchildren and a rabbi
over a nine-day period in March.

Merah had travelled to Pakistan
and Afghanistan and was under loose surveillance by French security
services, which have since acknowledged lapses and promised to tighten
up procedures.

While authorities initially described him as a "lone-wolf" terrorist, lawyers for victims' families were sceptical.

"We
know that he didn't kill alone," lawyer Patrick Klugman, who represents
some victims' families, said on LCI television. "We want everyone who
helped him, who hid him … brought before justice."

Samia Maktouf,
lawyer for the father of one of the paratroopers, told Sipa that she was
expecting more arrests of suspected accomplices "in France and abroad".

The liberal anti-Semitic projection syndrome

Posted on: Nov21 2012

I’ve been on the road for the past several days and out of the loop so to speak. I just got home last night.

I read a blog post by Jonathan Tobin from Commentary today where I discovered that the post-Zionist poster boy of the American Jewish left Peter Beinart is now accusing Israel’s non-Jewish supporters of being anti-Semites. 
Beinart you see, thinks that an anti-Semite is someone who criticizes anti-Zionist (or post-Zionist, or fair-weathered Zionist) American Jews for hanging Israel out to dry. 
So if a non-Jew criticizes, say Peter Beinart for spewing nonsense about how Israel’s rejection of Beinart’s positions on territorial surrender legitimizes anti-Israel sentiment, then that person is an anti-Semite. 
Beinart, after all, criticizes Israel as a Jew so since he does it as a Jew, attacking him for making ridiculous accusations against Israel makes you an anti-Semite. 
There is a wider context for Beinart’s position. Beinart has closely associated himself with J Street the pro-Palestinian lobbying group run by American Jews. During the last election cycle, J-Street targeted Israel’s staunchest supporters in Congress for defeat. Specifically it targeted Joe Walsh and Allen West, (both ran in gerrymandered districts), because they refused to support the establishment of another Palestinian state in Judea and Samaria, (to the side of the Palestinian state in Gaza which the Left likes to pretend doesn’t exist). 
J-Street claimed that West and Walsh — among Israel’s firmest supporters on the Hill — were anti-Israel because they rejected the establishment of another Palestinian terror state in the historic and strategic heartland of the Jewish state.
Beinart’s attacks on Rupert Murdoch and others who criticize Jews who attack Israel have to be seen as a continuation of the J Street campaign against Israel’s supporters in Washington. 
Jonathan provided the following quote from Beinart’s assault on Murdoch:
I don’t think anti-Semitism is widespread on the American right, any more than it is widespread on the American left. But when expressed, it should be publicly condemned. Whether it masks itself as hostility to Israel or support for Israel should make no difference at all.

You see what he is doing here. 

He is saying that there is no difference between those who support Israel and decry its critics and those who oppose Israel and decry its supporters. 
This post-modern moral equivalence is absolutely necessary. If you want to make a completely false argument sound reasonable, the first thing you have to do is erase all distinction between good and evil. (See the film clips in my last blog post.)
We need to be aware of what Beinart and his allies are doing. In the coming months and years, we should expect more and more of Israel’s supporters to be attacked as anti-Semites by leftist American Jews. The intention of people like Beinart and J Street is to demonize and discredit Israel’s supporters just as Israel itself is being demonized and discredited. 
In the face of this new initiative it is imperative that we continue to point out the real distinctions.
And just by way of example, here is Glenn Beck’s recent message to the people of Israel. Remember, Beck was repeatedly and viciously targeted by leftist American Jews who called him a racist for pointing out that George Soros admitted to collaborating with the Nazis during the Holocaust.
G-d bless Glenn Beck

J Street’s hour has arrived

Posted on: Nov8 2012

From PJM’s Tatler:

Today, J Street executive director Jeremy Ben-Ami sent an email to supporters with the subject line “ASTOUNDING.”

All 49 House incumbents endorsed by the PAC were re-elected. All seven of the J Street Senate candidates were elected, including Democrats Tammy Baldwin in Wisconsin, Martin Heinrich in New Mexico, and Tim Kaine in Virginia.

J Street’s challengers and candidates for open seats were elected in 13 out of 15 races. Ben-Ami noted that the PAC adds one more and gets to its touted victory total if Ami Bera holds on to his razor-thin lead over Rep. Dan Lungren (R-Calif.).

Lungren is not conceding as Bera holds a 184-vote lead with tens of thousands of absentee and provisional ballots still to be counted.

J Street also cheered the losses of “One-State Caucus” Reps. Joe Walsh (R-Ill.), Allen West (R-Fla.), Bobby Schilling (R-Ill.), Frank Guinta (R-N.H.), and Ann Marie Buerkle (R-N.Y.). All were freshman reps who came to power in the GOP’s 2010 midterm Tea Party-driven rout.

West has launched a legal challenge of Democrat Patrick Murphy’s 2,456-vote lead. The congressman today asked a judge to impound ballots and voting machines, and his campaign called for a recount while alleging polling irregularities.

The lobbying group defines this “caucus” as “members of Congress who put Israel’s democracy and Jewish character at risk by promoting policies–such as annexation of the West Bank–that are at odds with long standing bipartisan support for a two-state solution.”

“This is an incredible victory – one that is part of transforming the political atmosphere around Israel in the U.S. that has blocked meaningful American efforts to achieve a two-state solution for decades,” Ben-Ami said.

He declared that “the campaign to sow fear and doubt among Jewish voters on Israel in an effort to defeat President Obama failed.”

There were no Republicans or independents on J Street’s endorsement list.

Tellingly, J Street also did not endorse either Rep. Brad Sherman (D-Calif.) or House Foreign Affairs Committee Ranking Member Howard Berman (D-Calif.). Both are strong pro-Israel members, and Sherman defeated Berman in a redistricting race yesterday.
