Orange County Turns Out to Support Israel

I want to finish my reporting (such as it is) on tonight's pro-Israel event at the Jewish Center in Irvine, which was organized by the OC Jewish Federation and several other organizations. The featured speaker was the Israeli Consul General from Los Angeles.

I  had nit-picked the event only because I thought it should be held in open space so that the public could see the extent of support for Israel, much like the event in LA on July 13. In addition, since I am persona non grata with the OC Jewish Federation, an organization I have criticized in the past, I did not plan to attend the event.

I did, however, drive to the event location just in case pro-Palestinians had planned to protest outside, which I would have wanted to document. Therefore, I drove into the parking lot, got the last spot, waited for a few minutes and seeing no pro-Palestinian protesters, I left.

The one point I want to make is that this event drew a whole lot of of people. Indeed, I felt like I was driving into Angels Stadium for a baseball game. The traffic was snarled and there must have been a few thousand people. The overflow had to park down the street in the Mariners Church parking lot and other locations.

The lesson is that the American people overwhelming side with Israel. They may not be as loud, but we have more in numbers.

ISIS Massacres Hundreds of Shia in Tikrit

Viewer warning

Just another day in the neighborhood, Folks. In the latest video released by ISIS they execute hundreds of Shia in the Iraqi city of Tikrit.

And predictably, among the followers of ISIS, it is a YouTube smash.

These scenes are a carbon copy of how the Nazis massacred Jews in the Soviet Europe before they perfected the gas chambers. They rounded them up, trucked them to their execution site, and shot them to death to be dumped in mass graves.

The term Islamofascism does not do justice to what these savages are doing. Only the Nazis and the Khmer Rouge matched this barbarity.

Keep in mind this is Sunni Muslims killing Shi'ite Muslims. What do you think they would do to the Israelis if they could?

Third Rocket Arsenal Found in UNRWA School in Gaza

"We have informed the appropriate people."

For the third time since the Israeli-Hamas fighting broke out rockets have been discovered at one of those UN schools in Gaza.

I am sure that Ban ki Moon is really, really, really outraged now.

Dutch Orchestra Walks Out on Muslim Conductor

Hat tip Miggie

This video has just been posted. I don't know the exact date. Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands attends a concert in which the conductor is a Muslim. At the start, the conductor starts to give the queen a lecture on Islam. At this point, the orchestra gets up and walks out. The conductor is then escorted off the stage apparently by security personnel who check his papers and remove him.

This is classic.

UCLA Jewish Student Appointed to UC Regents Despite SJP Opposition

Students protest
A picture says a thousand words

This month, a Jewish UCLA student's appointment to the University of California Regents as student representative was confirmed despite loud opposition from the Students for Justice in Palestine.

Abraham Oved drew opposition because he is a Jewish supporter of Israel. The stated reason for opposition was because he had loose connections with a rich Jewish supporter of Israel named Adam Milstein, who contributed money to Hillel, which, in turn, contributed to Oved's campaign to join the UC Regents.

Also joining in the opposition was the previous student regent appointee, Sadia Saifuddin, whose own nomination drew opposition because she was a supporter of the Boycott, Divest and Sanctions movement against Israel. Saifuddin apparently did not recognize the hypocrisy in her position.

During the past year, UCLA has been the center of an ugly campaign (primarily by SJP)  to keep Jewish students off of student government. candidates for student office were asked to sign a pledge that they would not accept funding for travel to Israel by certain pro-Israel organizations. That drew a rebuke from Chancellor Gene Block and UC President Janet Napolitano. Even the Los Angeles City Council has taken note of the ugliness going on in Westwood.

No doubt the anti-Jewish, anti-Israel agitation by SJP and its allies at UCLA will continue. It bears close watching.

Imam in Jerusalem Calls for Jihad Against Jews

Hat tip Jihad Watch and MEMRI

This is good stuff.

Here is a clip produced by MEMRI of a sermon by some fanatical imam named Sheikh Nidhal Siam in E Jerusalem on July 18. It is truly ludicrous. In this sermon, this ibn sharmota refers to a "British study" (probably by Monte Python's Flying Circus) that says that the Egyptian army could crush Israel in a matter of days. He calls on Egypt to annex Gaza.

Well, first of all, Egypt and all those glorious Arab armies have tried to defeat Israel in 1948, 1967 and 1973. They have failed. Secondly, Egypt under its current leadership has no desire to go to war with Israel nor to annex Gaza. Who the hell would want it? Maybe word has not reached the sheikh, but Egypt is blockading the southern border between Gaza and Egypt too.

So to Sheikh Siam, I say, "Take your fatwas and shove them".

"Annex this."

Black Plague in the Hague

                                                                                                     The black plague returns to Europe

Another day in Europe and another despicable public display of Jew hatred with no response from the authorities. This sickening report comes to us from the Hague.

One distinction that is important to note here is that supporters of Israel are not calling for the murder of Palestinian people. Yet murder is what is being promoted by the supporters of Hamas (a terror group). These people are calling for the deaths of Jews while carrying a terrorist banner through the streets of European cities. As we speak, fanatical Muslim clerics in mosques not only in the Middle East, but in some cases the West are screaming for the murder of Jews and issuing fatwas calling on their flocks to go out and kill people.

And note how so many of this rabble wear scarves over their faces. Pro-Israel supporters don't do that. We are proud of which side we support.

Just another reminder from Stop the Islamization of America:


Anti-Jewish, Pro-Terrorist Graffiti Continues in Miami

Hat tip Creeping Sharia

In the wake of an ugly CAIR-sponsored rally in Miami days ago, the city has been hit with anti-Semitic graffiti for the second day in a row.

So where is Eric Holder's Justice Department if they are so concerned about hate crimes? Or is it just for certain kinds of hate crimes?

If any of the perps are determined not to be US citizens, they should be kicked out of the country.

Anti-Jewish Attacks Continue in France

Hat tip Times of Israel

A man was arrested by French police in Toulouse as he threw firebombs at a Jewish community center.

The article mentions that police were guarding the facility (as God knows they should have been). Though the name of the perp was not released (naturally) I would bet the farm it isn't Pierre.

Nancy Pelosi "Weighs in" on the Gaza Fighting

"And we have to confer with the Qataris, who have told me over and over again that Hamas is a humanitarian organization..."

Yes, Nancy. We must confer with Qatar, a state that supports terrorist organizations like Hamas.

Why don't we confer with Iran and North Korea while we are at it?

Offense Alert From Scotland: Scottie Dogs Are Offensive to Muslims All Over the World

Hat tip Atlas Shrugs and the Telegraph


The world famous and long-awaited  Commonwealth Games have opened in Glasgow, Scotland and during the opening ceremony, a flap ensued. It seems the Scots employed about 40 Scottie dogs to participate in leading the national team delegations around the stadium. That offended Malaysia. The Telegraph has the story, which has also been picked up by Atlas Shrugs.

"It is shameful and has offended not only Malaysia as a Muslim country, but Muslims around the world."

Yes, of course. I hear violence has already broken out in Syria, Iraq, Libya and Gaza. 

My reaction? This did not happen in Malaysia. It happened in Scotland. In this case, the Malaysians can recall their team. It seems they have better things to do anyway, like helping to do something about poor Malaysia Airlines.

Another Ghastly Atrocity by ISIS in Syria

Viewer warning: Graphic images

Hat tip IBN News and Live Leak

The ISIS rebels in Syria killed approximately 50 Syrian soldiers in the city of Raqqa. The soldiers who were not initially killed in the attack were beheaded and their heads placed on display on a wall on sticks.

I am not posting these images for the sake of sensationalism. I am posting them so that you may see for yourself the nature of what the world is facing if we surrender to this evil.
