Appeasement Watch: The Train Left The Station!

German security authorities have issued a warning to the Jewish community of an increased threat of terrorist attack emanating from Lebanon, a senior Jewish official said Sunday.
Stefan Kramer, general secretary of the Central Council of German Jews, told Deutsche Presse-Agentur (DPA) the warning had been received more than a week ago, on January 11.
He confirmed weekend news reports that increased precautions were being taken. The increased threat was to synagogues and Jewish schools across the country, and not just in Berlin, as was reported earlier, Kramer said.
The case of Menachem Vorchheimer, an orthodox Jew punched in the face when he remonstrated with drunken men hurling anti-Semitic abuse in late 2006, has become a cause celebre here and elsewhere. Some might question Mr Vorchheimer’s zealous pursuit of those who victimised him but he doesn’t care.
What matters more than the Vorchheimer case is its context: it is just one of a growing number of anti-Semitic incidents in Australia, where Jews are now four times more likely to be attacked than they are in the UK. On the latest annual figures, 638 incidents were recorded here â€” twice the previous average.
No wonder, then, that a US envoy with a brief to combat anti-Semitism is arriving here this week to investigate what’s going wrong. We will watch with interest whether he gets a hearing from our Premier and our police chief. And report accordingly.
Moonbat Wankfest at the ABC:
The ABC provides a forum for the rabid Islamo agit-prop Irfan Yusuf, who uses it to smear Piers Akerman, Pauline Hanson, Tim Blair & Fred Nile. Here’s the latest sequel of
ABC: Eldorado for the loony left…?
* Sample: “There are extremists in every religion”- “Tim McVeigh was a Catholic” (sure. The Omagh bombing was done in the name of Catholicism?) “Religion … will be dead soon”. “Camden people racists.”– Then, the taqiyya master himself, Yusuf asks: “Can 1.2 billion people all be part of a conspiracy of violence?”– go ahead and prove that they’re not, Yusuf! Then of course there is “George Bush”- the Nazi’s, Ku Klux Klan, the Serbs in the Bulkans, Branch Dividian and Timothy McVeigh, finally the master speaks again: “The Liberation Tigers of Tamil Elam”- right, Yusuf, they want to establish a global caliphate. It must be so because you said so… Another ones blames “Christian extremists use their armed forces to bomb innocent people”-(Muhammedan drivel, you heard it before..) then there are the “born again christians of the USA”– goodness! Wake me up when they start beheading people, go on jihad or fly jets into buildings, will you, Yusuf?
The Islamic enemy is using an interesting and unusual arsenal of weapons to defeat the West, most of it involving using the West’s own freedoms against it, and helping the weight of its own guilt tip the scales in their favor.
That the non-Muslims are leaving tells me they don’t wish to become Muslim or live under Islamic rule. But it also tells me that there’s a pervasive unwillingness to stand up for their right to live as they choose over there. And that wasn’t always the case.
No matter what blame some national leaders place on themselves for their Muslim immigrants not having assimilated, the population knows better. They know the Muslims have no desire to become European. They want Europe to become Muslim.
