Another Killer Called a “Hero” by Jordanian Minister

AMMAN — Jordan’s justice minister on Monday described a Jordanian soldier serving a life sentence for killing seven Israeli schoolgirls in 1997 as a “hero,” drawing an expression of “revulsion” from Israel.
“I support the demonstrators’ demand to free Ahmad Dakamseh. He’s a hero. He does not deserve prison,” Hussein Mujalli, who was named minister last week, told AFP after taking part in the sit-in held by trade unions. (AFP)

Libya leader Muammar Gaddafi called on Palestinian Arabs to act like the Egyptians and Tunisians and start a revolt against Israel. Meanwhile, Gaddafi warned his own people against using Facebook.

Video of the Attack against the Great Synagogue of Tunis

Atlas Shrugs

In a shocking, horrible video (here) posted to facebook, hordes of Western, modern-looking Muslims attack the Great Synagogue of Tunis to the chants of “Allahua Akbar!” and the genocial Islamic death chant:

“Khaybar Khaybar ya yahud, Jaish Muhammad saya’ud,” which means “Jews, remember Khyabar, the army of Mohammed is returning.” This cry relates to an event in the seventh century when Muslims massacred and expelled Jews from the town of Khaybar, in modern-day Arabia.

News of a prior attack on this synagogue had been wildly disputed, but one thing is certain: the media may be painting these violent uprisings as darling and quaint, but they are anything but. Islamic supremacism is being sold to an unwitting public.

Here is a report from February 4th — when I get more info on the video of the attack, I will report:

Marauders attacked a synagogue in Tunisia, as well as schools. Local vigilantes and the military drove them off. Pamela has more

  1. Keren Cohen’s family, like the other families of the victims of the Naharayim attack, had been deeply touched by the personal condolence calls paid by the late King Hussein to the families in their homes.

    Only hate is flowing in the Jordan River down to the Dead Sea since then !

  2. * Muslims attack the Great Synagogue of Tunis to the chants of “Allahua Akbar!” and the genocial Islamic death chant …

    allah’s time is coming, along with its followers:

    “And I will make clear my holy name among my people Israel; I will no longer let my holy name be made unclean: and the nations will be certain that I am the Lord, the Holy One in Israel. See, it is coming and it will be done, says the Lord; this is the day of which I have given word. And those who are living in the towns of Israel will go out and make fires of the instruments of war, burning the body-covers and the breastplates, the bows and the arrows and the sticks and the spears, and for seven years they will make fires of them:”

    (Ezekiel 38:7 to 9)

  3. Tunisia: Muslims demonstrate in front of synagogue, chanting Islamic battle cry invoking Muhammad’s massacre of Jews

    They’re chanting “Allahu akbar” and “Khaybar, Khaybar, ya Yahud, jaish Muhammad sa yaoud” — “Khaybar, Khaybar, O Jews, the army of Muhammad will return.”

    As I explain in my book The Truth About Muhammad, Muhammad led a Muslim force against the Khaybar oasis, which was inhabited by Jews — many of whom he had previously exiled from Medina. When he did so, he was not responding to any provocation. One of the Muslims later remembered: “When the apostle raided a people he waited until the morning. If he heard a call to prayer he held back; if he did not hear it he attacked. We came to Khaybar by night, and the apostle passed the night there; and when morning came he did not hear the call to prayer, so he rode and we rode with him….We met the workers of Khaybar coming out in the morning with their spades and baskets. When they saw the apostle and the army they cried, ‘Muhammad with his force,’ and turned tail and fled. The apostle said, ‘Allah Akbar! Khaybar is destroyed. When we arrive in a people’s square it is a bad morning for those who have been warned.'”

    The Muslim advance was inexorable. “The apostle,” according to Muhammad’s earliest biographer, Ibn Ishaq, “seized the property piece by piece and conquered the forts one by one as he came to them.” Another biographer of Muhammad, Ibn Sa’d, reports that the battle was fierce: the “polytheists…killed a large number of [Muhammad’s] Companions and he also put to death a very large number of them….He killed ninety-three men of the Jews…” Muhammad and his men offered the fajr prayer, the Islamic dawn prayer, before it was light, and then entered Khaybar itself. The Muslims immediately set out to locate the inhabitants’ wealth. A Jewish leader of Khaybar, Kinana bin al-Rabi, was brought before Muhammad; Kinana was supposed to have been entrusted with the treasure of on of the Jewish tribes of Arabia, the Banu Nadir. Kinana denied knowing where this treasure was, but Muhammad pressed him: “Do you know that if we find you have it I shall kill you?” Kinana said yes, that he did know that.

    Some of the treasure was found. To find the rest, Muhammad gave orders concerning Kinana: “Torture him until you extract what he has.” One of the Muslims built a fire on Kinana’s chest, but Kinana would not give up his secret. When he was at the point of death, one of the Muslims beheaded him. Kinana’s wife was taken as a war prize; Muhammad claimed her for himself and hastily arranged a wedding ceremony that night. He halted the Muslims’ caravan out of Khaybar later that night in order to consummate the marriage.

    Muhammad agreed to let the people of Khaybar to go into exile, allowing them to keep as much of their property as they could carry. The Prophet of Islam, however, commanded them to leave behind all their gold and silver. He had intended to expel all of them, but some, who were farmers, begged him to allow them to let them stay if they gave him half their yield annually. Muhammad agreed: “I will allow you to continue here, so long as we would desire.” He warned them: “If we wish to expel you we will expel you.” They no longer had any rights that did not depend upon the good will and sufferance of Muhammad and the Muslims. And indeed, when the Muslims discovered some treasure that some of the Khaybar Jews had hidden, he ordered the women of the tribe enslaved and seized the perpetrators’ land. A hadith notes that “the Prophet had their warriors killed, their offspring and woman taken as captives.”

    Thus when modern-day jihadists invoke Khaybar, they are recalling an aggressive, surprise raid by Muhammad which resulted in the final eradication of the once considerable Jewish presence in Arabia. To the jihadists, Khaybar means the destruction of the Jews and the seizure of their property by the Muslims.

    “Tunisia: Salafites Demonstrate Before Tunis Synagogue,” from ANSAmed, February 15 (thanks to Insubria):

    (ANSAmed) – TUNIS, FEBRUARY 15 – A group of young Salafites linked to “Hezeb Tahir” (“Liberation party”) demonstrated in front of the synagogue of Tunis, in the centre of the capital.
    Calling slogans against the ”murderous and criminal” Jews, they walked down Avenue de la Liberté before reaching the place of worship.

    The demonstration has been harshly criticised by the chairman of the organising committee of the Ennhada movement, Ali Araiedh. He announced in a statement quoted by the newspaper in the French language Le Temps that ”we reject these acts of intolerance towards religious minorities”, and underlined that ”we are for a Tunisia that respects all religions. Religious minorities, which have to live in peace in our country, are welcome”.

    Therefore, the chairman added, ”we reject these acts of intolerance towards religious minorities carried out in the name of Islam”. (ANSAmed).
