Jewish Athletes Told To Avoid Wearing Any Religious Items . . . In Germany…

ShowImage.ashx

Story sounds familiar.

Via JPost:

Two youths taunted six Jewish men with anti-Semitic insults and tossed an object at the group, police in the German capital said on Friday. The attackers fled and are being sought for alleged attempted assault and hate crimes. The incident took place in the Berlin district of Neukölln, a neighborhood with a large Muslim population. Separately, police arrested “a man with an Arab background” for yelling anti-Semitic insults at two security guards at the Hotel Estrel, where 2,000 people and athletes associated with the European Maccabi Games are staying, the Die Welt paper reported on Saturday. The hotel is 900 meters from the Al-Nur Mosque, a hotbed of radical Islam.

The head of the German umbrella organization for the Maccabi, Alon Meyer, warned Jewish athletes about traveling in large groups through Neukölln and wearing visibly Jewish items such as Stars of David or kippot. According to the Maccabi Games’ rules of conduct, athletes should not make themselves recognizable as Jews in “sensitive areas of Berlin,” and it is preferable that they travel in taxis and not wear kippot. […]

Critics said Silke Burmester, a left-wing journalist who writes for die Taz, die Zeit and a journalism trade magazine Medium Magazin, is stoking anti-Semitism. In response to the neo-Nazi threats, she wrote on Twitter, “What are these Jewish sports festivals?” and, “Have the Jews had their own Olympic games since ’36?” The Nazi regime hosted the 1936 Olympic Games in Berlin and banned German Jews from participating. Alex Feuerherdt, a leading expert on anti-Semitism in Germany’s sporting culture, told The Jerusalem Post on Saturday, “Naturally what Burmester said is anti-Semitic, because for her, it is not scandalous that neo-Nazis attack Jewish athletes, but rather that the Jews have their own sports festival.”

Feuerherdt added, “Jews established the event [Maccabi] because of anti-Semitism and Burmester wants Jews to integrate and not have their own sports event. She obviously has a problem with Jewish self-confidence and sovereignty and her comments reflect double standards.”

Via The Journal

A 16-year-old illegal immigrant was arrested Saturday (August 1) after he allegedly set fire to a Precinct 4 deputy constable’s patrol car at the Precinct 4 building in Manvel.

While on scene, Deputies saw a maroon Ford F150 four-door truck pull into the parking lot and they reportedly noticed that the suspect was acting suspicious.

The teenager then allegedly pointed a .22 caliber rifle from his car window as a deputy was approaching. The deputy pulled his weapon and retreated to his patrol vehicle. The suspect fled the scene and a pursuit began.

The pursuit lasted about 35 minutes, leaving Brazoria County, going into Ft. Bend County, and back to Brazoria County, where it ended at FM 518 and Kingsley Dr. in Pearland.

During the pursuit, the suspect swerved at two motorcycle officers who were escorting a funeral. One officer’s motorcycle was struck, but no officers were injured.

The suspect lost control of his vehicle and again pulled the rifle on the deputies. Deputies were able to take the suspect into custody without firing any weapons.

The chase ended in a one-vehicle crash on FM 518 at Kingsley Dr. in Pearland, where the suspect was taken into custody.
According to Brazoria County Sheriff’s Office Investigator Paige Newsom, the suspect said that he was tired of his people getting shot by police and nothing happening, so he came to shoot them.

He also reportedly said that the incident was about a war against the government because Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is always sending Mexicans back to Mexico for no reason, and they are the ones here in America doing all the work.

The suspect was charged with Aggravated Assault on a Public Service with a deadly weapon, Possession of a controlled substance, Evading arrest with a vehicle, and Arson, which are all felonies.

The suspect’s name has not been released due to his minor status.

OMG! Racist!

Via The Blaze:

Speaking to reporters after Officer Sean Bolton was fatally shot during an apparent traffic stop Saturday night, Memphis Police Director Toney Armstrong had a message for the community.

“As a community we say so often as a theme — black lives matter. And at the end of the day, we have to ask ourselves, do all lives matter? Regardless of race, creed, color, economic status, what profession that person holds,” Armstrong said. “All lives matter. And this is just a reminder of how dangerous this job is.”

“One life is too many, but how do you put a value on somebody’s life? How do you say one life is more important than another,” Armstrong said later during the press conference. “So, again, what we need more than anything right now is just your prayers again for this MPD family as well as this officer’s family.”

Police say the white 33-year-old officer was shot multiple times during an apparent traffic stop and had been with the department since 2010. Armstrong said they received a call to report the shooting from a citizen who used a police radio.

A militant Egyptian man wrapped an explosive belt around his wife’s waist after she threatened to report him to police, a local newspaper said on Saturday.

The woman, wearing the belt, went on foot to a police station near her house in the working-class area of Embaba north of Cairo, and requested help, the privately owned newspaper Al Masry Al Youm reported, quoting a security source.

Police escorted the woman to an uninhabited area where explosives experts defused the belt.

“The belt had highly explosive materials linked to an SIM card to be detonated through a remote controller,” the source said./blockquote>

Ben Carson Has To Defend Saying “Of Course All Lives Matter”…

Via The Hill

Presidential candidate and former neurosurgeon Ben Carson said Sunday that the “Black Lives Matter” controversy is “political correctness going amuck.”

“Of course all lives matter,” Carson, an African American, said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

Carson on Sunday defended his remarks during a rally last week, when he reportedly said, “Of course all lives matter. I don’t want to get into it, it’s so silly.”

Carson said he does not recall calling the “movement” silly.

“What I called silly is political correctness going amuck. That’s what’s silly,” he said.

At the same time, Carson said, “of course we should be very concerned about what’s going on, particularly in our inner cities.”

“It’s a crime, you know, for a young black man, the most likely cause of death is homicide. That is a huge problem that we need to address in a very serious way,” he added.

“The vast majority of police are very good people. Are there bad apples? Of course,” he continued. “But if you hire a plumber and he does a bad job, do you say all plumbers are bad? Let’s go out and kill them? I don’t think we do that,” he said.

“We need to be a little more mature, but certainly in cases where police are doing things that are inappropriate, I think we ought to investigate those promptly and justice should be swift,” he said.

Hundreds Gather At Stone Mountain, GA For Pro-Confederate Flag Rally…

Peacefully exercising their First Amendment rights.

Via WSBTV

Both pro and anti-Confederate battle flag activists went head to head at Stone Mountain Park Saturday.

At issue: whether the Confederate flag and the mountain’s carving of Confederate figures of the Civil War should be removed from Stone Mountain Park.

“I’m here to stand up for America,” Confederate flag supporter Mike Mulligan, of Loganville, said.

Mulligan was one of more than 200 people to participate in the flag rally, which at times got heated.

“Everybody is trying to make it about slavery now and it wasn’t,” Mulligan said.

Not everyone agrees.

“I think it negates half about what it represents,” Tyler Leah, of Atlanta, said. “You can say it’s about Southern pride and keeping the South, but it’s also about keeping slavery in it.”

Freya Powell and her family told Channel 2’s Audrey Washington they drove from southwest Atlanta to show support.

“I don’t agree that the flag should come down,” Powell said. “Yes, I’m African-American, but this is history and that’s why we’re supporting it.”

The word “PIG” was penned in what appears to be black marker on at least two of their items.

The couple told KAKE-TV they called and spoke to the manager on duty, who said they could bring back the five soft tacos and get new ones. When the couple told the manager they couldn’t return since they were both working, she said she would arrange to get their money refunded and food remade.

But on Sunday Taco Bell told KAKE they’ve done one better and fired the employee who left the nasty notes.

Linda Blank, 48, was stopped by detectives on Cleveland Street near Dewey Avenue in Douglas, Georgia.

Following her arrest she provided a striking mug shot, in which she looks somewhat dazed and confused.

After stopping her on the street, officers discovered that Blank was wanted for probation violation and for theft – and they started to arrest her.

She then tried to swallow a small amount of crack cocaine while she was being apprehended.

An arrest warrant states that officers were able to stop Blank from swallowing the drugs and took them from her, according to WALB.

Obama Unleashes Flying Monkeys Community Organizers To Push Iran Nuclear Deal…

Ooooh

#NuclearIranMatters

Via IJ Review

In a move that could be interpreted as a sign that votes might be getting hard to come by for his nuclear deal with Iran, President Obama is doing what he does best to try to rally support in Congress: He’s enlisting grassroots community groups to apply pressure on wavering politicians.

According to Time, the former community organizer inspired his troops in a conference call Thursday:

“You guys have to get more active and loud and involved and informed,” Obama said on conference call Thursday. Obama challenged the organizers to take an approach opposite what organizers took when Congress was mulling whether or not to authorize the Iraq War. His frustration with that effort, he said, was in the fact that everyone got “loud and active when it was too late.”

One man was responsible for the deaths or injuries of thousands of American soldiers in Iraq. That same man is responsible for sowing sectarian conflict today in Syria, Iraq, and Yemen. And yet, in the nuclear deal with Iran, this man, the commander of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps Quds Force, Major General Qassem Suleimani, will have sanctions lifted against him. Indeed, he will receive a large infusion of cash to wreak more havoc and terror. Having served in Iraq, having experienced first-hand his proxy operations against American forces, and having lost men to Gen. Suleimani’s terror operations, I find this offensive.

Navy Denies Any Charges At This Time Against Naval Officer At Chattanooga Terrorist Attack…

Navy is waiting for it to quiet down. Update to this story.

Via Chattanoogan

A spokesman for the U.S. Navy on Sunday denied reports that disciplinary charges will be filed against Lt. Cmdr. Timothy White for discharging an unauthorized weapon on federal property.

According to a post of Facebook and other social media sites, a statement reads, “Stories of Navy personnel being charges with an offense are not true. There is still a long way to go in reviewing the facts of this tragic incident, but at this time we can confirm no service member has been charged with an offense.”

Several news outlets, including this one, jumped on a report by national columnist Allen West on Saturday that stated he was enraged after he had confirmed that LTC White, who drew his personal sidearm in the July 16 terrorist attack on a Navy Reserve Center in Chattanooga, would face a reprimand and could possibly be court marshaled.

The reaction by the public was immediate after the columnist West urged readers: to “Flood the phones of SecNav Ray Mabus and SecDef Ash Carter and ask them whose side they’re on. Demand the charges being brought against Lt.Cmdr White be immediately dropped. If those charges are not dropped, (Allen West) will personally lead the charge to have Carter and Mabus removed from their positions.

DHS Chief: Don’t Call It Islamic Extremism Because It Doesn’t Have Anything To Do With Islam

Of course it doesn’t.

Via Weekly Standard:

Department of Homeland Security chief Jeh Johnson says that the Islamic State wants to be viewed as Islamic, but they aren’t.

During an interview at the Aspen Security Forum, the interviewer asks if Johnson and DHS are missing the religious dimension of the terrorism we face by denying that it’s inspired by Islam. “I couldn’t disagree more,” Johnson says.

Disagree with what?

Even if you buy Johnson’s intellectually feeble claim that the Koran-quoting, Allah-praising, Halal-keeping members of Islamic State have “no connection to Islam,” they certainly believe they do. Denying a connection between al Qaeda and Islam would be like denying any connection between the Christian Identity movement and Christianity. The typical Christian understands that, which is why they don’t object.

Even more disturbing (and once again, watch the video for yourself), Johnson says he can’t call Islamic terror “Islamic terror” out of deference to American Muslims because they won’t cooperate with homeland security efforts if he does. So the head of DHS believes American Muslims will stand by and watch their fellow Americans die in bomb blasts over a vocabulary dispute?

That may be the most insulting thing you’ll ever hear anyone say about Islam in America.

If I met someone at a cocktail party and they expressed such a juvenile, naive opinion, I’d roll my eyes and wander back to the bar for another Bushmills. But to hear it from the guy whose job is to protecting my family from terrorists? That’s too important to be ignored.

How Many People Were Killed In Just 8 Attacks In ‘Gun-Free Zones’?

Screen Shot 2015-08-02 at 5.34.06 PM

It’s like waving a flag before a bull.

Via Breitbart:

Calls for more gun control almost always follow a public crime or terror attack in which the attacker–or attackers–use a gun. Yet many of the most infamous attacks take place in gun free zones–places where law-abiding citizens disarm themselves to comply with the rules while criminals take advantage of disarmed masses and open fire.

What follows are just a few of the many examples of shootings in gun free zones that could be listed. There is not one type of firearm that can be blamed–the weapon used was sometimes a handgun, sometimes a rifle, other times a shotgun–nor is there one specific race that can be pinpointed–the attackers come from various races/ethnicities. Nor is this a situation where expanding background checks would have made even the slightest difference–all the attackers listed but one, Adam Lanza, passed a background check for their firearms. Lanza opted to steal his guns instead.

The common thread is that the attacks took place in areas where the gunman knew he could inflict damage at his own pace, without the threat of reprisal from armed citizens:

Lafayette Grand Theatre: On July 23 John Russell Houser allegedly opened fire with a .40 caliber pistol, killing two people–Mayci Breaux and Jillian Johnson–and injuring nine others in a gun free zone.

Chattanooga: On July 16 Mohammad Youssef Abdulazeez opened fire on two military locations–one a recruitment office, the second a Navy Operational Support Center. The attack killed five people–USMC Gunnery Sgt. Thomas Sullivan, USMC Lance Corporal Squire K. Wells, USMC Staff Sgt. David Wyatt, USMC Sgt. Carson Holmquist, and US Navy Petty Officer Randall Smith–in a gun free zone.

Obama To Unveil ‘Biggest Step Ever’ In Climate Fight…

Your electricity bill will necessarily sky rocket.

Via Discovery

President Barack Obama will Monday unveil what he called the “biggest, most important step we’ve ever taken” to fight climate change, a sensitive issue central to his legacy.

The White House will release the final version of America’s Clean Power Plan, a set of environmental rules and regulations that will home in on the pollution from the nation’s power plants, setting limits on power-plant carbon emissions.

Laying out how climate change was a threat to the health, well being and security of millions of Americans, and adding that time was of the essence, Obama said in a video released early Sunday: “Climate change is not a problem for another generation. Not anymore.”

“Power plants are the single biggest source of harmful carbon pollution that contributes to climate change,” added Obama, who made the battle against climate change a core promise of his 2008 election campaign.

“But until now there have been no federal limits to the amount of that pollution that those plants can dump into the air.”

He added that without imposing limits, “existing power plants can still dump unlimited amounts of harmful carbon pollution into the air weekly.

“For the sake of our kids, for the health and safety of all Americans, that’s about to change.”

Obama argued that the plans will lead to lower energy bills for everyday Americans and create jobs in the renewable energy sector.
