Yet Again: Group Of Suspected Muslim Youths In Germany Attack Rabbi

06/07/2013 Leave a comment

By BENJAMIN WEINTHAL, The Jerusalem Post – “BERLIN – A group of youths attacked a rabbi on Sunday evening in Offenbach, a city near Franfurt.

Six to eight ‘Mediterranean looking’ youths attacked the 39-year-old Rabbi Mendel Gurewitz. The youths pushed the rabbi and called him a ‘s****y Jew’.

The Orthodox rabbi filed a police complaint.

Police spokesman Rudi Neu, in southeast Hesse state where Offenbach is located, said a criminal complaint was filed and there was probable cause to investigate for an anti-Semitic hate crime, bodily injury and harassment.

After the initial verbal hostility, Gurewitz photographed the youths with his mobile phone, the police spokesman said. The youths ordered him to delete the photos.

The alleged attack took place in a shopping center passage. The authorities are reviewing video cameras from the shopping area for footage of the event.

Mark Dainow, the deputy director of the Jewish community in Offenbach, criticized the security personnel at the shopping location for failing to intervene to stop the aggressive activity of the youths.

Gurewitz was forced to flee the building and the youths pursued him. A friend of the rabbi drove by and rescued the rabbi by picking him up in his car.” Read more.

For peaceful purposes …

AsiaNews – “Dhaka (AsiaNews) – A mob of dozens has raided a seminary of the diocese of Dinajpur, northern Bangladesh, injuring the rector and a group of students inside the building at the time of the attack. The raid took place at 3 pm yesterday: about 60 local fanatics broke down the doors of the Jisu Niloy seminary, pouring inside the compound. The group targeted the rector Fr. Uzzal, surprised in his room while he was resting; the assailants knocked down his door and violently beat him and some students present at the time of the attack.

During the assault, the fanatics blocked the young students of the seminary and beat them with violence and brutality. The Jisu Niloy seminary is located Bolakipur and refers to Marimpur parish in the Diocese of Dinajpur.

Previously, the same mob had raided the nearby tribal village – Catholic majority – of Tivipara and Bagja. The assault occurred at 1 .30 pm, they plundered the inhabitants of 40 cows, 50 goats, a van, fruit and many other objects and utensils. Before leaving, the assailants threatened to come back the next night and burn the residents homes.

Most of the men fled the area for fear of new attacks, the women and children, however, have found refuge in the Catholic mission, where there are more security guarantees. The Catholics of the area belong to the tribal Santals, Urao, Mundas, Kharias and Malos.

Over the past few days there have been a wave of assaults and targeted violence against the Christian community in Bangladesh, a largely Muslim nation: June 5 it was the turn of the parish of Tumilia, which was attacked by extremists. The parish priest Fr. Abel was beaten and robbed, along with another priest.” Source – AsiaNews.

By BosNewsLife Asia Service – “A 16-year-old Christian convert from Islam remained missing Friday, June 7, some two weeks after he was kidnapped by Islamic militants in Pakistan’s volatile Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Province, Christian said.

Aman Ullah was reportedly taken by fighters of a militant Taliban group on May 25 in Peshawar, the capital of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, the former Northwest Frontier Province.

‘We don’t know which of the 32 different Taliban groups operating both in Afghanistan and Pakistan is responsible,’ said John Taimoor, president of mission group ‘Crossbearers Ministry’ which works among former Muslims.

‘My team, workers and disciples from Muslim backgrounds are facing pressures from many sides and physical persecution,’ he said in a statement. However, ‘We are looking to our Savior who is able to save us to the uttermost…’

MEMORIZING BIBLE BOOKS

There was no known statement from the Taliban on Friday, June 7, though the group has spoken in the past to media in other kidnapping cases.

The young kidnap victim, who became a Christian a year ago and evangelized, had memorized the books of John and Ephesians in the Bible, said Taimoor who gave the boy Bible lessons. His goal was to memorize the entire New Testament as he had already memorized the Koran, Taimoor recalled.

‘He is very dear to me. Aman Ullah means ‘peace of God’ in Arabic, Persian, Urdu and Pushto languages,’ the official said. ‘He is a diamond, very dedicated and brilliant. He was outgoing; he made public statements and gave his testimony.’

Taimoor’s group helps young converts such as Aman to memorize the Biblical Book of Ephesians and demonstrate ‘seriousness about growing in their faith’ to impact other Muslims.” Read more.

Turkey: Defiant Erdogan Invokes The God Of Islam In Face Of Nationwide Protests, ‘No Power But Allah Can Stop Turkey’s Rise’

Sounds like Turkey’s Erdogan refuses to become another sitting duck …

By Humeyra Pamuk and Ayla Jean Yackley, Reuters – “ISTANBUL — Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan flew back to a Turkey rocked by days of anti-government unrest on Friday and declared before a sea of flag-waving supporters at Istanbul airport: ‘These protests must end immediately.’

‘No power but Allah can stop Turkey’s rise,’ he told thousands who gathered in the early hours to greet him in the first pro-Erdogan rally since demonstrations began a week ago.

At Istanbul’s Taksim Square, the center of the protests and now occupied by thousands around the clock, some chanted ‘Tayyip resign’ as they watched a broadcast of the address. In the capital, Ankara, the Kugulu Park echoed with anti-government slogans, while protesters danced or sang the national anthem.

Speaking from an open-top bus at the airport, his wife at his side, Erdogan acknowledged police might have used excessive force in crushing a small demonstration against a building project last Friday — the action that triggered nationwide protests against his 10-year rule.

‘However, no one has the right to attack us through this. May Allah preserve our fraternity and unity. We will have nothing to do with fighting and vandalism. … The secret to our success is not tension and polarization,’ Erdogan told the crowd.

‘The police are doing their duty. These protests, which have turned into vandalism and utter lawlessness, must end immediately,’ he added.

He gave no indication of any immediate plans to remove the makeshift protest camps that have appeared on Taksim Square and a park in Ankara. But the gatherings mark a clear challenge to his declarations.

Western governments including the United States, which sees Turkey as a key NATO ally in the Middle East, bordering Iran, Iraq and Syria, have expressed concern about heavy-handed police action.” Read more.

Report Details U.S. Government’s ‘Disastrous Muslim Outreach’

06/07/2013 Leave a comment

Under the Obama Administration, one of America’s mottos has been changed from “we do not negotiate with terrorists” to “we do not negotiate with conservatives.” Professing Muslims kneel and touch their foreheads to the ground when they bow down to the god of Islam. But America’s leaders are bowing down in their own special way …

Revelation 18:3, “For all the nations have drunk the maddening wine of her adulteries …”

My will be done ...

My will be done …

By Elizabeth Harrington, CNS News – “A new report documents the failures of Muslim outreach conducted by the U.S. government before and after the Sept. 11 attacks, faulting both Republican and Democrat administrations for reaching out to known terrorist funders and leaders.

Published by the Israel-based Global Research in International Affairs (GLORIA) Center by Patrick Poole, a counterterrorism consultant and investigative reporter, the 14,000-word exposé details the federal government’s ‘long-standing policy of engaging extremists.’

Among the many examples, Poole cites government leaders inviting radical cleric Anwar al-Awlaki to the Pentagon, just months after one of his spiritual disciples had flown a plane into the Pentagon on Sept. 11, 2001.

The report, ‘Blind to Terror: The U.S. Government’s Disastrous Muslim Outreach Efforts and the Impact on U.S. Middle East Policy,’ finds that a ‘campaign of political correctness’  has been ingrained in government, hindering investigations and resulting in culturally sensitive policies towards Islam, such as guidelines that required FBI agents to remove their shoes before raiding a mosque that financially supported the Taliban.

According to the report, President Obama issued a directive in August 2011 ordering law enforcement to engage ‘community partners’ to help combat ‘violent extremism.’

‘One example of the effect of this new policy are the Shari’a-compliant guidelines that federal law enforcement officials must now comply with when conducting raids related to Islamic leaders or institutions,’ Poole explains.  ‘This was exhibited in May 2011, when the FBI raided a South Florida mosque and arrested its imam and his son for financially supporting the Taliban.’

The rules required law enforcement officials to remove their shoes before entering the mosque and dogs were barred from property, Poole said.  ‘The common sense of these new rules undoubtedly would have been put to the test had the subjects tried to flee, to be pursued by shoeless federal agents.’

The report also reveals that numerous leaders linked to terrorism have been used as conduits for the Muslim community since the first attack on the World Trade Center in 1993, under the Clinton, Bush and Obama administrations.

Poole points to Abdul Rahman al-Amoudi, who was a regular visitor to the White House under both Bill Clinton and George W. Bush, who asked him to help train Muslim military chaplains.  He made six taxpayer-funded trips as a civilian goodwill ambassador to the Middle East for the State Department beginning in 1997.

But throughout his time working with the government, al-Amoudi was a major fundraiser for al-Qaeda.” Read more.
