PALLING AROUND WITH JEW-HATERS FOR THE RADICAL CAUSE.

Daniel Greenfield

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam.

Bernie Sanders hates discussing his Jewish roots, but that hasn’t stopped his lefty Jewish fans from gnawing at the subject like poorly trained puppies chewing on old tennis shoes.

Think Progress claims that Bernie Sanders is a “devout secular Jew”. “Bernie Sanders Is Jewish, but He Doesn’t Like to Talk About It,” the New York Times coughs apologetically. (And the Sulzbergers ought to know.) A Forward editorial neurotically screeches, “We Need To Out Bernie Sanders as a Jew — for His Own Good”.

But Bernie Sanders likes his devoutly Socialist closet. He prefers to describe himself as the son of Polish immigrants. Asked about religion, he disavows Judaism and embraces Pope Francis. TheTimes has him embracing the description “Non-Jewish Jew” which was coined by a Marxist in an essay explaining anti-Semitism, including the Holocaust, as a “superficial” reaction against capitalism.

Where Obama and Hillary ran on race and gender, Bernie Sanders avoids Jewishness as much as possible. He doesn’t practice Judaism, isn’t part of a Jewish community and avoids the “J” word.

One of the few times he used the dreaded “J” word was when a Muslim activist who cheeredanti-Israel terrorism told him that she was afraid of Republicans. Suddenly Sanders puffed out his chest and told her, “I’m Jewish, my father’s family died in concentration camps. I will do everything that I can to rid this country of the ugly stain of racism.”

Considering that the activist, Remaz Abdelgader, had a quote stating, “It would be wrong and inhuman to impose the Jews on the Arabs” and snarled that, “Islam and civil rights issues are mutually exclusive”, that might not have been nearly as reassuring to the former MSA president as he intended it to be.

While Bernie Sanders invoked his last few drops of Jewishness and the Holocaust in support of a Muslim anti-Semite’s crybullying, he didn’t feel the need to do so for the Jewish State when it actually stood on the verge of destruction. Instead he had called for denying arms to Israelbefore the Yom Kippur War.

In 1971, he told an audience, “no guns for Israel.” Two years later, the Yom Kippur War brought Israel to the brink of destruction and shipments of American arms made the difference. But Bernie Sanders did not care and in 1988 still insisted that, “It is wrong that the United States provides arms to Israel.”

In 1990, he called for America to “put more pressure on Israel”.

Bernie Sanders sneeringly condemns what he calls Republican bigotry, but he endorsed Jesse Jackson despite his racist “Hymietown” slur. Before a joint appearance with Jackson, Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan had warned Jews, “If you harm this brother, I warn you in the name of Allah this will be the last one you harm.” Despite that, Jesse Jackson refused to cut his ties with Farrakhan.

Jackson had told a Washington Post reporter, “That’s all Hymie wants to talk about, is Israel; every time you go to Hymietown, that’s all they want to talk about”. Bernie Sanders however tried to prove he was a good “Hymie” (or a good Non-Hymie Hymie) by defending Jackson’s hostility to the Jewish state.

Bernie Sanders brags about his endorsement from Congressman Keith Ellison despite his pastsupport for the Nation of Islam and his appearance with Khalid Abdul Muhammad who had called Jews  “bloodsuckers” and had said, “If you’re a Jew, I’m against you.” Nation of Islam leader Farrakhan, who calls Jews “false Jews”, praised Bernie Sanders as a “real Jew, not a so-called Jew”.  The very thing that makes Bernie Sanders seem suspect to Jews makes him more appealing to anti-Semitic hate groups.

Sanders met with Al Sharpton despite his anti-Semitic remarks and the horror of the Crown Heights Pogrom in which an entire Jewish community was besieged by racist mobs chanting, “Death to the Jews”. The former Democratic presidential candidate had taunted, “If the Jews want to get it on, tell them to pin their yarmulkes back and come over to my house.” Not a problem for Bernie Sanders.

While Bernie Sanders is quick to call Republicans bigots, he not only fails to stand up against anti-Semitism from the left, but he has supported and collaborated with anti-Semites.

And he’s still doing it now.

When Bernie Sanders reached out for perspective on the Middle East during his campaign, hecontacted James Zogby, who defended Hamas and Hezbollah, and Lawrence Wilkerson, who had accused Jewish officials of dual loyalty and suggested that Israel was behind Assad’s chemical weapons attacks.

The truth about Bernie Sanders is that he is not Jewish in any sense other than the genetic. He is a left-wing radical who is uncomfortable with any mention of his Jewish background because he does not like Jews. Even his time on an Israeli Kibbutz, a staple with which his Jewish fans nurtured their fantasies of a Jewish Bernie, fell apart when it emerged that his Kibbutz had flown a red flag and admired Stalin and the Soviet Union as part of a radical leftist movement that had initially opposed the creation of Israel.

His first and foremost allegiance has always been to the left at the expense of the Jews.

Bernie Sanders cheered the Sandanista regime whose mobs chanted “Death to the Jews,” “Jewish Pigs” and “What Hitler started we will finish.” He did not invoke the Holocaust when a synagogue was firebombed and in an echo of Hitler’s Germany, its president was forced to scrub the streets.

The anti-Semitic regime that Bernie Sanders supported ethnically cleansed the Jewish population of Nicaragua. It marched the indigenous Indian population into churches and set them on fire.

And Bernie Sanders defended the Marxist terrorist regime that was committing these atrocities.

Bernie Sanders was equally enthusiastic about Cuba and the Soviet Union, two other Communist dictatorships that were persecuting the Jews. Sanders did not see fit to invoke the Holocaust on behalf of Jews actually facing anti-Semitic persecution the way that he has invoked it on behalf of Muslims.

But perhaps he thought that, like the other victims of the left, they were getting what they deserved.

When Bernie Sanders went on his visit to the USSR, there were no more concentration camps in Europe, but there were still Jews locked up in the gulags of the Soviet Union. While he was admiring Soviet youth programs, Jewish refuseniks were still being denied permission to leave the Communist dictatorship.

While American official visitors often met with political dissidents, there is no sign that Sanders did so. It would have been out of character for a man who had justified Communist crackdowns on the opposition to have met with enemies of the regime. For Bernie Sanders, the Sandanistas, Castro and the Soviet Union were models to be emulated and victims of capitalist repression by America, Wall Street and its evil corporations. Much in the same way that Muslim terrorism against Jews is excused today.

Bernie Sanders invokes the Holocaust when asked about his Jewish identity, not because he has empathy for Jews, but in a classic leftist maneuver to distract attention from that lack of empathy. His conception of the Holocaust is detached from Jewish suffering. It is purely about his leftist politics.

Surreally he references the Holocaust only to add that it taught him that politics is “important”. The Holocaust has no Jewish meaning for Bernie Sanders. It merely validates his self-importance.

At a Democratic debate, when asked about the historic nature of the election, he avoided saying that the first Jewish president would be as historic as the first female president. Instead he mumbled that it would be his “views” of “taking on the big money interests” that would make him historic.

Bernie Sanders does not want to be the first Jewish president. He wants to be the first Socialist president. There is nothing Jewish about Bernie Sanders except his vestigial accent. He makes common cause with anti-Semites because Jews don’t matter to him, only the agenda of the left does.

Anti-Semitism by Dave Hunt

Aug 1 1988

On the day of Pentecost, when the church was established, national Israel did not cease to exist. Israel remains God’s special people and is the beneficiary of particular promises which apply to her alone and which are in the process of being fulfilled. Yet there is a growing movement today which identifies the church as Israel, denies any place for national Israel in God’s future plans, and declares that all of the promises and unfulfilled prophecies that once referred to Israel now belong to the church. Earl Paulk, one of the leaders in this movement, writes,

Some of the strongest fundamental churches still preach that Christ will return to gather national Israel unto Himself, and I say that is deception and will keep the Kingdom of God from coming to pass!

In almost any Christian bookstore, about 99% of the books will say that “God’s time-clock is Israel” and that “God’s covenant is still with Israel.”…[I say that] prophecies about Israel as a nation [are] now transferred to spiritual Israel, which is the people of God [i.e., the church]… 1

Christians in the West have traditionally been the major base of support for Israel. With the new “the-church-is-Israel” movement gaining a wide following, however, a drastic change is developing in the attitude of many Christians, especially charismatics, toward Israel. While those promoting this belief deny the charge of anti-Semitism, the increasingly bold use of sarcasm, ridicule and openly displayed antagonism by some is ominous. This trend is only in the beginning stage and is growing rapidly. Gary North writes,

When Israel gets pushed into the sea, or converted to Christ, Scofieldism dies a fast death. Rest assured, I have a manuscript ready to go when either of these events happens. 2

We are witnessing a revival among Protestants of the traditional anti-Semitism of the Roman Catholic Church. Many people have forgotten that the Church which claimed as its first pope a Jewish fisherman, whose alleged founder, Christ himself, was a Jew, as were the apostles and the entire church in its infancy, very early became a persecutor of Jews. Most Catholics are probably not aware that anti-Semitism was made the official position of the Catholic Church and it remains so to this day. As a reminder:

The Council of Vienne (1311) forbade all intercourse between Christians and Jews. The Council of Zamora (1313) ruled that they must be kept in strict subjection and servitude. The Council of Basel (1431-33) renewed canonical decrees forbidding Christians to associate with Jews, to serve them, or to use them as physicians, and instructed secular authorities to confine the Jews in separate quarters, compel them to wear a distinguishing badge, and ensure their attendance at sermons aimed to convert them.

Pope EugeniusIV…added that Jews should be ineligible for any public office, could not inherit property from Christians, must build no more synagogues, and…any Italian Jew found reading Talmudic literature should suffer confiscation of his property, etc. 3

No wonder Hitler felt that he had good precedent for his sanctions against the Jews. The Vatican was understandably silent during the Holocaust and has not yet, after 40 years, recognized the nation of Israel.

Anti-Semitism, like infant baptism, was one of several carry-overs from Catholicism from which Luther never broke free. His pamphlet Concerning the Jews and Their Lies (1542) was in fact filled with lies about Jews: that God hated them, that the Talmud encouraged lying, robbery and even the killing of Christians; that they poisoned springs and wells in order to accomplish this; and that they used the blood of murdered Christian children in their rituals. Providing Protestant confirmation to match Catholicism’s justification of much that Hitler would do to the Jews, in later life Luther

…advised the Germans to burn down the homes of Jews, to close their synagogues and schools, to confiscate their wealth, to conscript their men and women to forced labor, and to give all Jews a choice between Christianity and having their tongues torn out. 4

Such extremes are not yet openly expressed among evangelicals and charismatics, and hopefully will not be in the future. Yet the above shows what anti-Semitism can develop into in the name of Christianity. Those presently speaking out against Israel carefully vent their animosity only against the Jews as a nation, while professing a love for them as individuals. Earl Paulk even writes, “I have no disagreement with any who teach that national Israel is important to the fulfillment of end-time prophecy.” He says this in spite of having gone on record (as quoted above and elsewhere) that the church is now Israel and that Israel has no place in prophecy.

Instead of “God is dead,” we are now told that “Israel is dead.” There is little difference, however, in the two attitudes, since He is so often identified as “the God of Israel.” David Chilton’s Days of Vengeance attempts to justify the astonishing reconstructionist/kingdom/dominion thesis that Israel was “excommunicated” by God in a.d.70 when the armies of Titus destroyed Jerusalem. 6 Under the title, “The Church Is Israel-A Vital Teaching,” McKeever has written,

We love the Hebrews who live…in the nation of Israel. We support them and thank God for such an ally in the Mideast. However, the Lord has shown us clearly that in no way are they Israel. Israel is composed of all believers in Jesus Christ.

It is vitally important for the body of Christ to realize that they are Israel and that the unfulfilled prophecies concerning Israel are theirs to participate in. 7

Speaking in Oklahoma City on April 11, 1988, Rick Godwin, a long-time associate of James Robison and popular speaker on Christian media, delivered the type of anti-Israel rhetoric that is becoming so typical in charismatic circles: “They are not chosen, they are cursed! They are not blessed, they are cursed!…Yes, and you hear Jerry Falwell and everybody else say the reason America’s great is because America’s blessed Israel. They sure have. Which Israel? The Israel—the church. …That’s the Israel of God, not that garlic one over on the Mediterranean Sea !” 8 Earl Paulk’s criticism of national Israel and those who look favorably upon her includes the ultimate accusation:

The hour has come for us to know…that the spirit of the antichrist is now at work in the world…[through] so-called Holy Spirit-filled teachers who say, “If you bless national Israel, God will bless you.”

Not only is this blatantly deceptive, it is not part of the new covenant at all! 9

Paulk and Godwin were recently lauded and endorsed by Paul and Jan Crouch as guests on their internationally televised TBN “Praise The Lord” show. Paul asked Paulk some of the questions that critics have raised, and the latter did a masterful job of sidestepping the issues and presenting himself as not claiming that the church is Israel (in spite of the quotes above), as not rejecting the Rapture (in spite of having written entire books against it), and other such deceit. Paul and Jan have now added Earl Paulk to their whitewash of Kenneth and Gloria Copeland and Robert Schuller. They endorsed him enthusiastically, promoted his latest two books (and by implication all of his other writings), and, addressing Hal Lindsey and Dave Hunt directly (in case they were watching out there somewhere), asked them if they had heard Paulk’s answers and promised to give them a copy of his newest book, which would correct their false ideas.

If we are to believe the leaders in this “church-is-Israel” movement, then one of the greatest events in the history of the world—the return of the Jewish people to their own land and the rebirth of Israel in 1948—is a freak accident with no significance. On the other hand, if this astonishing occurrence of undeniably great importance is, in fact, the fulfillment of biblical prophecies that the church has so long believed it to be, then here is an indisputable modern miracle of international prominence to which Christians can point—an event which gives irrefutable validity to the Word of God. “The-church-is-Israel” advocates would rob the church of the most convincing available witness to God’s existence, righteous judgment and faithfulness: the remarkable history of the Jewish people, their prophecy-fulfilling odyssey and return to their historic homeland, and the prophesied climactic future events yet to occur there.

The rejection of Israel is essential to the unbiblical Reconstruction/Kingdom/Dominion teaching that a Christian elite has a mandate to take over the world and set up the Kingdom, (a theocracy), as a condition of Christ’s return. Only Jesus Christ himself can be trusted with such power. That is why it is so distressing to hear the Paulks, Norths, et al. laying claim to this absolute theocratic power in Christ’s name. This is but one of many reasons why King Jesus himself must set up His kingdom and personally rule over it—a teaching increasingly rejected in the church today. C.S. Lewis said it well:

I believe that no man or group of men is good enough to be trusted with uncontrolled power over others. And the higher the pretensions of such power, the more dangerous I think it both to the rulers and to the subjects.

Hence Theocracy is the worst of all governments. If we must have a tyrant, a robber baron is far better than an inquisitor. The baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity at some point be sated; and since he dimly knows he is going wrong he may possibly repent.

But the inquisitor who mistakes his own cruelty and lust of power and fear for the voice of Heaven will torment us infinitely, because he torments us with the approval of his own conscience and his better impulses appear to him as temptations. 10

Whether men are ready to admit it or not, the only choice is really between Christ and Antichrist. Nothing less than an absolutist theocracy will hold in check the evil and bring about the radical solution which the world’s ills require. World events point inexorably to the establishment of such a regime. It will either be under the false world religion of Satan and his personal incarnation, or under the truth of God and His Son our Lord Jesus Christ. No mere man could qualify, all of the good intentions of COR and the Reconstructionists and assorted other dominionists notwithstanding.

It is quite clear from Luke:24:47-48 [47] And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.
[48] And ye are witnesses of these things.
and other passages that the disciples were not expected to inaugurate the Kingdom but to be witnesses concerning the King and His future coming. There will be no kingdom of God without the King present and ruling in power. All Christians admit this to be the case when it comes to the spiritual kingdom in our hearts—Christ must reign there. The same is true of the outward manifestation of His kingdom upon earth during the Millennium—He must personally reign there as well.

Currents of change are sweeping through the world and the church. In the crucial days ahead, the evangelical church could well suffer a division over the Rapture and the related issue of Israel comparable to that experienced by the Catholic Church as a result of the Reformation in the 1500s. Nor would it be surprising if, as a result, in the cause of “unity,” the larger faction in Protestantism moved much closer to ecumenical union with Catholicism, which not only has been traditionally anti-Semitic but discarded the Rapture about 1,600 years ago.

Please do not rest with taking my word for what I say. Check it out for yourselves. Be students of God’s Word, lovers of truth, and prayer warriors!  TBC

Outlaw Islam or DIE! Lessons from history tell the truth about Islam

It’s time to resurrect the spirit of the Crusades and send the Barbarians straight to hell before Islam takes over the world. These refugees from Syria are the filler for the Globalist agenda to destroy the Christian world and wipe out the people of the Bible.

More Than 100 Headstones Toppled at Philadelphia Jewish Cemetery

My Comments:  Of course there is no way of knowing for sure who did this to this historic cemetery, or who perpetrated the other acts of violence and hatred against the Jewish people of America, but I can guess.  Certainly we have been salted with huge numbers of foreigners, many of whom hate Jews and Christians.
By Ben Ariel, Canada FOR ISRAELNATIONNEWS.COM
Vandals knock down 124 headstones at the the Adath Jeshurun historic cemetery in Philadelphia.
cemetery
More than 100 headstones were toppled at a historic Jewish cemetery in Philadelphia, NBC Philadelphia reported on Friday.
According to the report, the groundskeeper of the Adath Jeshurun Cemetery arrived around 6:00 a.m. Thursday to the burial ground to find dozens of grave markers knocked down.
“The thought went through my mind, ‘this is a disgrace for somebody to do something like this,'” the groundskeeper, Johnny Gibson, who has worked at the cemetery for 44 years, told NBC Philadelphia.
The vandals knocked down 124 headstones, but didn’t leave any marking or graffiti, Gibson said.
Some graves on the 12-acre property date back 160 years and there are only a few new burials each year now, he added. On many days, neighbors use the cemetery as a shortcut.
Gibson said that he can’t recall anyone ever desecrating grave sites over the past decades.
“I don’t know who would do it,” he told NBC Philadelphia. “Were the people on drugs? Were they drunk? I don’t know. But you wouldn’t be in your right mind, I don’t think, to do something like this.”
While the nature of the incident is not yet clear, anti-Semitism has been on the rise in the United States, with a 21% increase overall in 2014, according to a damning Anti-Defamation League (ADL) report released in March.
In April, shots were fired outside of a synagogue in Nashville, Tennessee. No one was hurt.
In late March, two Jewish teenagers were attacked with paintballs in Brooklyn as they were coming home from synagogue with their grandfather. Several weeks earlier, the car of a rabbi in the city of Dallas was vandalized with a swastika.
Earlier in the year, some 30 homes were spray-painted with swastikas and anti-Semitic expressions in Madison, Wisconsin.
And in an incident in Texas, a judge was reprimanded in May for offensive comments against a Jewish attorney

Hezbollah Imam is Father of US Marine

Mohamad al-Halabi supports Hezbollah, but was he also a member?
IMAM
By Joe Kaufman for FRONT PAGE MAGAZINE
Mohamad al-Halabi, the imam of the American Islamic Center of Florida and father of a United States Marine, has been using his Facebook page to propagate the same type of hatred and fanaticism that his center had forced on the community one decade ago. But the big question is, was he also involved in an international terrorist group?
The American Islamic Center of Florida or AICF was founded in the city of Boca Raton, Florida, in 2003, as the Assidiq Islamic Educational Foundation. Unlike the Sunni mosques which had already been established in Boca, Assidiq was of the Shiite variety.
In April 2005, Assidiq attempted to broaden its following by inviting the community to a free dinner banquet that the mosque was sponsoring at the Boca Center Marriott. But instead of gaining support for Assidiq, the mosque succeeded in alienating a good number of residents by featuring a neo-Nazi as a speaker at the event and a representative of a Hamas-related group as a ‘Guest of Honor.’
The neo-Nazi that the mosque brought to speak was William W. Baker.
In 1984, William Baker was National Chairman of the Populist Party, a white supremacist organization founded the same year by notorious Holocaust denier Willis Carto. Officials from the party included neo-Nazis and former leaders of the Ku Klux Klan. The previous year, in 1983, Baker had given a speech at a function run by the Christian Patriot Defense League, also a white supremacist outfit. Baker’s speech targeted Jews, referring to Reverend Jerry Falwell, a staunch supporter of Israel, as “Jerry Jewry” and discussing a trip he had taken to New York where the first people he came in contact with were “pushy, belligerent American Jews.”
The Hamas-related group was the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR).
CAIR was established in June 1994 as being part of the American Palestine Committee, an umbrella organization acting as a terrorist enterprise run by then-global Hamas leader Mousa Abu Marzook, who was based in the U.S. at the time. In September 2001, right after the 9/11 attacks, under a graphic of a burning World Trade Center, CAIR asked its followers to donate money to Hamas charity Holy Land Foundation (HLF) via a link on the CAIR national website. CAIR later was named a co-conspirator for two federal trials dealing with HLF and the raising of millions of dollars for Hamas.
Following the mosque’s neo-Nazi banquet, a little over a year later, Assidiq Islamic Educational Foundation incorporated under a new name, Florida Islamic Education Center. Two years after that, in June 2008, the mosque reincorporated using the name, Al-Huda Islamic Center. And in December 2012, the mosque reincorporated under its most recent name, American Islamic Center of Florida.
From the time the American Islamic Center of Florida (AICF) was founded, there have been three imams leading it. The latest has been Mohamad al-Ali al-Halabi, a radical cleric who was born and raised in Syria and received his Islamic education in Iran beginning in 1987.
Since immigrating to the United States in 1999, Al-Halabi has become a very important figure in the American Shiite community. He is the head of the Education and Research Department of the Imam Mahdi Association of Marjaeya (IMAM), and he sits on the Executive Committee for the Council of Shia Muslim Scholars in North America (CSMSNA).
On al-Halabi’s Facebook page, there are a number of disturbing posts.
This past March, al-Halabi posted a video of virulent anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan, praising Farrakhan, stating “This man is a brave one.” In the video, Farrakhan denounces America as a corrupt nation with blood on its hands. In another video al-Halabi posted, in September 2014, the Secretary General of Hezbollah, Hassan Nasrallah, refers to America as the “mother of terrorism” and the source of all terrorism in the world. Of this video, al-Halabi wrote, “Nice words.” Al-Halabi further posted different videos from Hezbollah’s television station, al-Manar.
Being that al-Halabi grew up in Syria, one would think that he would recognize the terror and devastation that Syria’s leader, Bashar al-Assad, has unleashed against his own people. Over 100,000 Syrian civilians have been killed at the hands of those loyal to the Assad regime. Yet, al-Halabi seems to be a big fan of Assad, posting a number of Assad propaganda pieces to his Facebook page. When Assad stated that the US only claims to fight terror and instead funds and arms ISIS, al-Halabi wrote of it, “Good points.”
In October 2012, al-Halabi posted a graphic on his Facebook page linking to a heavily anti-Semitic video, titled ‘Iran Bashing, Terrorism and Who Chose the Chosen People, Anyway?’
The video suggests that Jews will deliberately commit crimes against the US knowing they will be protected by “the Zionist-controlled Main Street Media;” that the US itself is controlled by Zionists; and that Jews are conspiring to hide certain details about the Holocaust which they do not want “the un-chosen people” to know about.
The video doesn’t just attack Jews. It also explicitly targets America. The video claims that, regarding sanctions placed on Iraq in the aftermath of Operation Desert Storm, “long before the events of 9/11, the United States led an act of international terrorism which is almost beyond belief.”
Al-Halabi’s extremism seems to be exhibited, as well, in much of his family.
Apart from the foul language and marijuana advocacy (‘The Stoner’s Cookbook’) found on her Facebook page, Al-Halabi’s daughter, Nour Ali, is not that different from her dad. She even posted the same Louis Farrakhan video to her Facebook page as he did. One of her ‘Likes’ is of a group devoted to “Condemning Aggression Against Syria.” The group devotedly posts various pictures of Nassrallah, Assad and Iran’s former terrorist leader Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini on its Facebook page. The group also posted a Hezbollah communique on its page and a photo of U.S. and Israeli flags burning with the caption, “Death to America, Death to Israel” on it.
Al-Halabi’s cousin, Hossin Hallak, posted onto his Facebook page pictures of Hassan Nasrallah, Bashar Assad, and Assad’s father, Hafez al-Assad, who like his son was directly responsible for the murders of tens of thousands of his fellow Syrians. Another al-Halabi cousin, Retha Albaiaty, posted pics of Nasrallah and Adolf Hitler.
Yet another al-Halabi cousin, Radwaan Alrahe, posted onto his Facebook site pics of Nasrallah (one he had as his Facebook profile photo), Assad and various dead terrorist “martyrs.” He also posted photos of himself dressed in full camouflage gear; wearing large magazine/ammunition holders; whilst brandishing an AKMS Kalashnikov rifle, a weapon-of-choice for Hezbollah fighters and those fighting for the Hezbollah-backed Popular Committees in Syria, where Alrahe is located. He further made statements as if he is preparing to join his martyr friends.
Al-Halabi’s nephew, Ahmed (a.k.a. Ahmed HD), is also a strong supporter of Hezbollah. In fact, he is a member of Hezbollah. Al-Halabi is close with his nephew, as they frequently message each other on Facebook. On different messages, al-Halabi offers prayers to Ahmed and asks if he’s alright. Under a photo, where Ahmed proclaims his membership in Hezbollah, al-Halabi wrote, “May God protect you and grant you victory…” Al-Halabi has posted a number of photos on Ahmed’s Facebook page, at least one of which has both of them together.
Question: Is al-Halabi’s nephew Ahmed attempting to emulate his uncle, when it comes to joining up with Hezbollah?
In June 2010, al-Halabi posted on his Facebook page a short piece about an experience he had following Israel’s Siege of Beirut, Lebanon, 28 years earlier, in June 1982. In Arabic, he wrote, “We stood in line in front of the people from recruitment for training, in order to defend Lebanon after the invasion of Beirut by the Israeli enemy. The youngest among us was 15 years old and the oldest was 60 years old. When we were asked, we had one answer: ‘We want to fight, and we want to liberate Lebanon and Palestine. We want to die with dignity.’”
Al-Halabi mentioned that, at the back of the volunteer line, there was a “helpless” person with “crippled feet pushing his wheelchair with his left hand and his right hand hidden in his sleeve.” According to al-Halabi, the crippled man told him that he had been “a survivor of the October War” and that he wished to use his injured body as a “sandbag” in order to “shield hero fighters” in battle.
Following the Israeli siege against the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) in Beirut, the government of Iran put up money to pay for recruitment centers for a new militant organization made up of religious Shiites to compete with the largely secular Amal Shiite group. The organization would be called Hezbollah or Party of God, and its focus was in carrying out guerilla warfare against Israelis, who were conducting military activities in Lebanon.
At the time, a large percentage of the Beirut population was Palestinian. The “October War” that the crippled man was speaking of was the Yom Kippur War, which took place in October 1973.
If al-Halabi did indeed join Hezbollah, as his writing suggests, this would certainly have ramifications for his immigration status in the United States.
The U.S. Application for Naturalization (form N-400) asks, “Have you ever been a member of, or in any way associated with a terrorist organization?” And the U.S. Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status (form I-485) asks, “Have you EVER engaged in, conspired to engage in, or do you intend to engage in, or have you ever solicited membership or funds for, or have you through any means ever assisted or provided any type of material support to any person or organization that has ever engaged or conspired to engage in sabotage, kidnapping, political assassination, hijacking, or any other form of terrorist activity?”
In October 1983, a little over one year following Israel’s siege, Hezbollah suicide bombers carried out an attack against U.S. Marine barracks stationed in Beirut, which left 241 American servicemen dead – a terrorist assault against the U.S. only second in scope to 9/11.
After all the activities documented above, it is both ironic and disturbing to discover that Mohamad al-Halabi’s son, Mahmoud Ali, is presently serving in the United States Marines. A photo of him donning Marine gear is found on his sister’s Facebook page.
In May 2014, al-Halabi posted a photo on Facebook containing himself, Mahmoud and his Hezbollah nephew, Ahmed. In December 2014, al-Halabi posted a Facebook photo of himself and Mahmoud, with a caption that read, “Like father like son.” There is a strong possibility that these words could have more than a ring of truth to them, as the son would have to live in a bubble not to know of his family’s support and involvement with a terrorist organization.
Therefore, it is imperative that every individual in this article gets thoroughly investigated. If any one of them living in the U.S. is or has been involved with Hezbollah, they need to either serve jail time or be deported.
When it comes to openly glorifying terror, America, its armed forces, and its law enforcement agencies cannot afford to look the other way.

Life Becomes Unbearable for Jews, Swedish Edition

Annika Hernroth-Rothstein Political adviser and journalist based in Sweden for THE TOWER

Targeted for humiliation, prohibited from observing her religion in freedom, Annika Hernroth-Rothstein tried to draw attention to the plight of Sweden’s small Orthodox Jewish community—and that’s when the trouble really began.

A few months after I had entered high school, the boys with the boots showed up. I called them that because they had paired their historically accurate Hitler Jugend uniforms with shiny 10-hole Dr. Martens, white laces dramatically contrasting their perfect oxblood shade.

I could always hear them approaching, the boys with the boots. The sound of rubber soles against linoleum would cut through the noises of my high school hallway and as soon as I turned around, there they were.

My family had settled in that sleepy coastal town some 70 years earlier, leaving the big city for a better place to raise a family. The war came, and what happened after that I only know through scattered pictures and hushed-down questions. I was told life had become difficult, so they adapted, as the children of their children would also be taught to do.

A year ago, to the day, I went to a foreign policy conference in Washington, DC, to attend a lecture by a State Department official who specializes in countering anti-Semitism. I had come there to ask for help, and when I asked this man whose job is to monitor and combat this scourge of hate around the world what the administration was planning to do about the European crisis, his response to me was that this is not 1939 and while the situation may be dire, the sky is not falling.

As we went around the room and I stated my name he smiled and acknowledged me as the Swedish girl who applied for asylum in my own country. Funny, he said. You don’t look like any refugee I’ve ever seen. The crowd erupted in laughter, and I sat silent, waiting to be clued in on the joke. I had come to tell my story, but the man in front of me did not really listen, and as I would later learn, neither did the world.

That was one year ago. A year of writing, fighting and sounding the alarm, and each time there was another isolated incident I told myself that this must be as bad as it gets.

Each time I was proven wrong.

Random Thought – End Stage Jew Hatred

My Comments:  I receive Dan’s emails daily, and I’ve found them to be spot on.  I believe his take on the escalating phases is quite perceptive.
Broadly speaking, anti-Semitism has four escalating phases, each one paving the way for the next:
1) Telling an anti-Semitic joke with no Jews present.
2) Telling an anti-Semitic joke with Jews present.
3) The willingness to break the law or injure oneself while committing anti-Semitic acts.
4) Official failure to enforce the law with regard to Jews or condoning physical attacks against Jews and their property.
5) Order breaks down as the governing authorities openly encourage Jew-hatred and sanction its role in society.
So where are we now in the Age of Obama? I believe we are still in stage three but crossing over to stage four. This, thanks to anti-Semitism’s new disguise as the more acceptable anti-Zionism. Of course, we’d never have reached this point in the first place if not for Obama’s regime and the Jewish quislings who backed him (twice).

The Violent Hatred Spreading Across Our Campuses

Zechariah

My Comments in Red: More than a decade ago now, famous Italian Journalist, Oriana Fallaci stated Europe had become Eurabia.  This is what happens when you allow immigration and infiltration of Islamists into the country.  The United Kingdom is now overrun by way too many Muslims.  Anti-Semitism, and Anti-Christianity have become the European norm.
