Pro-Palestinians in London: "F---the Jews, F--- Their Mothers, Rape Their Daughters"

 Hat tip the JC. Viewer warning.

On Saturday, pro-Palestinian protesters fought with police near the Israeli embassy on Saturday. Nine cops were injured. In addition, they chanted the old refrain, "Khaybar, Khaybar, O Jews! The armies of Mohammad are returning," a reference to a 7th-century conquest of the town of Khaybar in present-day Saudi Arabia,  in which Jews were murdered by Mohammad's army.

On Sunday, it got even worse, as thugs with Palestinian flags, rode through North London, with a loudspeaker saying, "F the Jews, F their mothers, rape their daughters".

This is the true face of the anti-Israel movement. They didn't say, "Khaybar, Khaybar, o Zionists". They didn't say, "F--- the Zionists." It was Jews they attacked in this most vulgar of manner. And they have the nerve to pose as defenders of human rights for the poor, downtrodden Palestinians. They are latter-day Nazis.

May God protect Israel and the Jewish people from this scum, which has no place in Western society.

Paris: The Unauthorized Pro-Palestinian "Demonstrations"

Today, there are pro-Palestinian "demonstrations" going on in Paris, despite the fact that such demonstrations have been prohibited in Paris due to the obvious risk of disorder and danger to the populace.

But rules and regulations are for other people, namely the French, not the benighted supporters of the Palestinians. So here below are some links to three major French news outlets, showing videos of the "demonstrations". The fourth link is from the conservative French blog, FDesouche, and shows several videos both in Paris and other places where protests have been authorized.

The Pro-Palestinian Protesters Target Jews

How many times have you heard that the pro-Palestinian movement is not about attacking Jews or Judaism? It's just against Zionism and the policies of Israel vis-a-vis the Palestinians, right? It's a key feature of their vast propaganda machine when dealing with Westerners. But as usually happens, when they get riled up about something, as they are now riled up over developments in the Middle East, the Jew-hatred comes spewing out. In fact, I would argue that the entire Israel-Palestinian conflict is not about land. It is about religion. As you will see just from some of the examples I have chosen below, these protests are often accompanied by the threatening cry of, "Allahu Akbar". But it has nothing to do with religion, right?

In addition, the pro-Palestinian rallies, unlike the pro-Israel rallies, are always tense, on the verge of getting out of hand, or at times violent. Sometimes, if you are lucky, they only interfere with traffic. In some cases, however, synagogues are targeted. But it has nothing to do with religion, right? Synagogues have been targeted for protests or even vandalism. 

Both in Europe and the US, the Jew-hatred has manifested itself during the past week. In Europe, many major cities have been hit with pro-Palestinian, anti-Israel protests. I would like to show you a few.

On May 14, protesters took to the streets in the Dutch city of Utrecht. You can see what happened here and here.

Also on May 14, protesters took over the famed Piazza del Duomo in Milan. That can be viewed here

Germany: Who Is Attacking the Synagogues?

Germany in November 1938: Kristallnacht

May  2021

A rhetorical question, of course. With the fighting heating up between the Israelis and the terrorists of Hamas in Gaza, Germany's synagogues require special protection. That's because they are being attacked.

No, the (German) Nazis have not returned to Germany. It's not the Storm Troopers answering the call of Adolf Hitler and Josef Goebbels to sack Jewish businesses and burn synagogues.

Officially, the German government has recognized Israel's right to defend itself against the terrorists who rule Gaza. The problem is that they keep allowing more people to enter the country who bring with them an age-old enmity for Jews. That is why, with the Israel-Palestinian conflict once again heating up, we see synagogues being targeted in Germany. Germany, like so many of its neighbors,  has a problem with "imported anti-Semitism", the last thing this country needs.

The below article from Deutsche Welle is translated by Fousesquawk.

Anti-Israel action

Federal President Steinmeier: "Jew-hatred (cannot) be tolerated."

The anti-Semitic attacks in Germany are causing consternation. Federal President Steinmeier speaks of crimes that must be prosecuted. Israel's ambassador worries about the safety of the Jewish community.

Rocks thrown at synagogues, burned flags with the Jewish Star of David: The hate and the anger against Jews in several German cities as a result of the Middle East conflict has outraged and alarmed German politicians. "Jew-hatred-from whomever it comes- we do not want and will not tolerate in our country," said Federal President Walter Steinmeier to "Bild"-Newspaper. Nothing justifies threats against Jews in Germany or attacks on synagogues in German cities. 

"Our basic law guarantees the right of expression and demonstration. But who burns flags with the Star of David and shouts anti-Semitic words on our streets is abusing not only the freedom to demonstrate, but is committing crimes, which must be prosecuted," explained Steinmeier.

Similar to the Federal President, the federal government underlined the freedom to demonstrate. But who uses such protests to "scream out their Jew-hatred," abuses this right, said its spokesman, Steffen Seibert. The federal government will not tolerate anti-Semitic demonstrations.

Whoever protests in front of a synagogue or damages Jewish symbols, shows "that he is not criticizing a government, rather hatred toward a religion and those who are members of it," The government stands against that with all its might. Seibert emphasized that the federal government condemns every form of anti-Semitism, no matter, whether it comes from Islamic, extreme right, or extreme left circles.

The Israeli ambassador in Berlin called on Germany to take action. "I ask the German authorities urgently to do everything to safeguard the security of our community," said Jeremy Issacharoff to ARD. The Israeli government is very concerned about anti-Semitic acts like attacks on synagogues in Bonn, Münster, and other cities. "The conflict in the Middle East has nothing to do with the Jewish community here in Germany," emphasized Issacharoff.

Zero tolerance for attacks on synagogues

Germany's foreign minister, Heiko Maas, is appealing to all citizens, not to accept, "when people of the Jewish faith in Germany are held responsible for the events in the Middle East-in the streets as well as social media". 

The minister emphasizes:  "For attacks on synagogues, there can be zero tolerance in our country."  Maas further told the newspapers of the Funke Media Group:  "It is so sad that it is generally necessary. The State must, without any ifs and buts, guarantee the security of the synagogues."

The Representative of the Federal Government for Jewish Life in Germany and the Fight Against Anti-Semitism, Felix Klein, spoke of terrifying images of destruction and suffering from the Middle East. "At the same time, 4,000 km away in Germany, we see violent rioters in front of synagogues, burning Israeli flags and openly chanting anti-Semitic words in a repulsive way. It is appalling how Jews in Germany are publically being held responsible for the actions of the Israeli government, with which they are completely uninvolved. That is pure anti-Semitism."

Solidarity with the Palestinians or criticism of the Israeli government are no justifications for violence, as has been seen in Bonn, Gelsenkirchen, and other German cities, Anti-Semitism Representative Klein Stein said in a statement.

In the Middle East, the violence between Israel and the radical Islamic organization, Hamas, is widening. Militant Palestinian organizations like Hamas and Islamic Jihad have fired more than 1600 rockets since Monday, according to Israeli information. As a result, at least 8 people have been killed and several hundred injured. In response, the Israeli Air Force bombarded targets in the Gaza Strip.

According to Palestinian sources, there were at least 119 people killed and several hundred injured. The trigger for the bloody exchange is the threatened forced eviction of about 30 Palestinians from their homes in East Jerusalem, which Jewish Israelis claim.

Merkel stands by Israel's self-defense

Regarding the escalation in the Middle East, Government Spokesman Seibert explained that Chancellor Angela Merkel condemns the continuing rocket attacks against Israel in the sharpest (terms). "These are terror attacks with one goal, killing people and spreading fear indiscriminately and arbitrarily. Nothing justifies such terror. This rocket-firing must stop immediately. The Federal Government stands with Israel's right to self-defense against these attacks."

Against the backdrop of the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians, there have been several attacks against Jewish institutions in Germany. On (Wednesday night-Thursday morning), an unidentified person attacked the synagogue in Mannheim and destroyed a windowpane. A police patrol encountered a 20-year-old in the vicinity, who said he had been a witness to the incident.

State Security is investigating and also examining the role of the young man. The police are again increasing presence at Jewish institutions in Mannheim. Mayor Christian Specht condemned the attack on site and expressed his solidarity with the Jewish community.

On Wednesday evening, police in Hanover broke up an anti-Israel gathering for violation of Corona-regulations. According to information from the police, around 550 people took part, two of whom attempted to burn an Israeli flag.

In Gelsenkirchen, the police stopped an announced anti-Israel demonstration. Some 180 people had set off from the square in front of the train station in the direction of the synagogue, in which there were anti-Semitic chants, the police reported. The Central Council of Jews in Germany posted a video on Twitter, in which the chants are heard.

An initial investigative success

Meanwhile, one suspected perpetrator has been identified. As police report, it is a 26-year-old German-Lebanese from Gelsenkirchen. State Security has set up an investigative commission to clear up details quickly, it said.

Police in Wurzburg reported that on (Wednesday night-Thursday morning), an unidentified man tore down an Israeli flag that was hanging in front of the State Council Office, from its mast and badly damaged it. In Berlin, unidentified person(s) stole an Israeli flag from the CDU- Central (Christian Democrat Party); In front of the Pankow (district in Berlin), unidentified persons(s) tried to set an Israel flag on fire that was hanging there.

Fight anti-Semitism with all tools

After the escalation of the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians, Israeli flags in front of synagogues in Münster and Bonn were set on fire on (Tuesday night-Wednesday morning). In Bonn, the entrance area of the synagogue was damaged by thrown rocks; three suspects were arrested. Interior Minister Horst Seehofer declared, they would not tolerate," that on German soil, Israeli flags would be burned or Jewish institutions attacked". The CDU politician added, "We will fight anti-Semitic hate with all the tools of the rule of law."

Security precautions have also been sharpened in front of the synagogue in Frankfurt.

After the latest anti-Semitic incidents, the Green Party asked the minister to give an assessment of the situation to the Interior Committee of the Parliament. "We must do everything for Jews to be able to live in safety (in Germany)," said the Green Party interior expert, Irene Mihalic, in Berlin.

Disorderly Conduct in the Netherlands: Anti-Israel Protest

Hat tip Dagelijkse Standaard. Translation (of the Dutch) by Fousesquawk.

 Yesterday, hundreds of pro-Palestinian Arabs took to the streets of the Hague to demonstrate near the Israeli embassy. It looks like at times, things got out of hand, hardly surprising. In addition, there were plenty of "Allahu Akbars". The conservative Dutch blog, Dagelijkse Standaard, has several videos with comments. We have also translated the Twitter comments that accompany the video. Click the link below to view the videos.

(Videos) Pro-Palestinian demonstrators cause unrest near Israeli embassy: "Allah akbar!"

Again many people go out on the street to express their support for the Palestinians. Yesterday, there was unrest in Rotterdam, and today hundreds of pro-Palestinian demonstrators disrupted order near the Israeli embassy in the Hague.

And today, several hundred Dutch demonstrators showed which side they stand in the conflict. With a lot of fanfare and showing of flags, they showed that they support the Palestinians in the conflict.

First video from Bob van Keulen on Twitter (comment):

"Demonstrators walk by World Forum. 'Israel terrorist', and 'boycott Israel', they call out.

Second video from Bob van Keulen on Twitter:

"On the last day of Ramadan, before Eid, youths demonstrate in front of the embassy of Israel. No police to be seen. ICTY (International Tribunal Court for Yugoslavia) has called police because the demonstrators are not allowed to demonstrate on their grounds."

Third video from Bob van Keulen on Twitter:

Again, plenty of  'Allah akbar' at the demonstration for Palestine and against Israel.

- (Dagelijkse Standaard) In addition to the usual anti-Israel slogans and rhetoric, there were the usual anti-Israel figures also present at the demonstration. A spokesman from the anti-Semitic BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions) was also at the party.

Fourth video by Bob van Keulen:

"The Hamas fundraiser, Abou Eenarm, is also again present  at the demonstration for Palestine and against Israel."

Fifth video by Bob van Keulen:

"BDS activists who want all products from Israel out of supermarkets are once again, also present."

-(Dagelijkse Standaard) Finally, they didn't just demonstrate, and the demonstrators went onto the street, which disrupted traffic considerably.

Sixth video by Bob van Keulen:

"It goes wrong again."

Seventh video by Bob van Keulen:

"Too few police and no control at all."

-(Dagelijkse Standaard): A counter-demonstrator with an Israeli flag was also attacked. He was chased and his flag taken and destroyed.

Eighth video by Bob van Keulen:

"Someone with a Jewish flag is chased. Police do nothing about it."

-(Dagelijkse Standaard): Peace has now returned.


Fousesquawk comment: A contrast to the pro-Israel rally I attended yesterday in Irvine, California. It was loud, it was boisterous, but it was orderly and peaceful. A few heated words were directed by a couple of people at some pro-Palestinian youths who showed up with keffiyehs and a Palestinian flag. However, there was no violence, and the counter-protesters were allowed to stay and even engage some pro-Israel folks in quiet exchanges. Nobody was assaulted or chased. No Palestinian flag was ripped away and destroyed. 

Retired Generals and Admirals Raise Their Concerns

Hat tip Steve

Last month, in France, 100 retired French generals (and other retired officers and soldiers) signed an open letter to the French government warning it that a civil war was just around the corner in France.

Now we have an open letter signed by over 100 retired American generals and admirals warning that America is headed in a dangerous direction. Having read the letter, I find myself in agreement with it, and thus, I am cross-posting it here.

Anti-Semitism in Sweden's Third-Largest City ("Imported Anti-Semitism")

Hat tip Nyheter Idag. Translation by Fousesquawk.


How timely is this article from Nyheter Idag, a conservative news site in Sweden? Nyheter Idag has posted an op-ed by two of the more conservtaive Swedish politicians in the southern region of Skåne, Ann-Catherine Björk and Edward Nordén, from the Medborgerlig Samling Party in Skåne,  . It is about the ongoing problem of anti-Semitism in Malmö (of which we have written many times).

Nothing is resolved in the question of Malmö's imported Jew-hatred

Schoolchildren should read biographies of Holocaust survivors, Holocaust-denying should be forbidden, Holocaust museums should be established, and all display their good set of values. In reality, everyone is busy saying the right things without doing anything about the problem itself. That more and more Jews are leaving Sweden's third-largest city is secondary to the warped reasoning that Malmö's anti-Semitism has become. Ann-Catherine Björk och Edward Nordén, from the Medborgerlig Samling Party in Skåne, write about anti-Semitism and lying in Malmö.


This year as well, discussion about Malmö's anti-Semitism came and went. It comes every year after problems and harassment increase in spite of the admonitions and condemnations of the politicians and leaders. In reality, the debate on anti-racism and the 1930s has never been louder at the same time Jews are leaving Sweden's third-largest city because of harassment and threats.  This results in discussions about what is really going on in Malmö.

The Jewish congregation in Malmö was founded in 1871, and its formation happened about 10 years after the law that forbade Jews to settle wherever they wanted throughout Sweden was abolished. Neither Jews nor anti-Semitism is a new feature in Sweden's third-largest city. But it is still possible that so many Jews want to leave Skåne's largest city that there will be no substantial Jewish population in Malmö within 10 years or so. What will happen then? All politicians and journalists know what is happening, but not everyone else does.

This year's debate on anti-Semitism began from a report that the city of Malmö commissioned. The report states that: Anti-Semitism in Malmö is a real problem with clear victims, but the question is more multi-faceted than it is sometimes described. 

There is reason to assume that almost all Jewish children in Malmö have been exposed to anti-Semitism, also in the form of harassment and threats. Both extreme right and extreme left are named, and it is likely that this is the "multi-faceted" that the authors of the report are referring to. What sticks out, however, is what is usually called "imported anti-Semitism". The Jew-hatred that comes with migrants from the Middle East-North Africa. Excused by many Swedish politicians as "criticism of Israel" and thereby legitimized by some of the city's leading Social Democrat politicians.

It is Malmö where the government party's youth association chants, "Crush Zionism," at the same time that the government warns about the 1930s, at the same time Malmö's Social Democrats want to have a Holocaust museum and investigate anti-Semitism in the city. The investigation is done by a politician whose youth association (young left) also sings rhymes about "crushing Zionism". All this in a city where they have held demonstrations with hundreds of people who chant about killing Jews and that we should remember Khaybar.

The rhyme in Arabic is, "Khaybar, Khaybar-ya Yahud, jaysh Muhammad saufa ya'ud", and means approximately, "Khaybar, Khaybar- Oh Jews-Muhammad's army will return." This refers to the battle at Khaybar in the year 628 when the Prophet Muhammad took the city and subjugated the Jews. The town of Khaybar lies 150 km north of Medina in today's Saudi Arabia. The Shia terror militia, Hizbollah, has named rockets after Khaybar. Rockets fired at Israel.

Those who took part in demonstrations in Malmö were also from this approximate geographical background. Also, those who threw firebombs at synagogues in Gothenburg and demonstrated in Malmö. The demonstration was also followed by firebombs outside the Jewish chapel. When the Danish politician and provocateur, Rasmus Paludan, burned a koran last year, there was a riot and also then screams of Khaybar and Jews.

Paludan was stopped at the border, and Malmö's politicians expressed happiness that Malmö escaped racism, hate, and incitement. But people strike their brow in dismay. In reality, many have breathed a sigh of relief because they have lost control of anti-Semitism, hate, and the violence that follows. Nothing is solved. That is why we will hear the same monologues next year as well.

It doesn't help either to give the impression that the conflict in the Middle East legitimizes harassment and the expulsion of Jews in Sweden. It is an absurd logic that should be treated as the nonsense that it is. Those who have received refuge in Sweden have no right whatsoever to exercise threats and violence against anyone in our country. But it is here that it becomes difficult politically. These are voting blocs. Not infrequently to the party that governs Malmö, as well as those who wish to run it.

It becomes difficult in Swedish politically correct logic when one ethnic or religious minority harasses another minority. It was easy when the criticism was about Nazis, but complicated when the anti-Semitism of the left and the Middle East becomes manifest. It was easy to refer to a Holocaust survivor's word and their autobiography but complicated when a mob screams anti-Semitic chants in Arabic in the middle of  Malmö. That this happens (simultaneously) gives a surreal feeling.

Adults who cannot act when Jews leave Sweden due to harassment still think it is important that schoolchildren read Holocaust survivors' stories. We think it is reasonable to challenge thoughts here. What exactly is it that adults want to convey to schoolchildren? That from a historical perspective, it is important to know about the rampage of anti-Semitism during the 1930s, which ended in the attempt to exterminate Jews? Or is it intended to create thinking in young adults to dare stand against group pressure and groupthink? Promoting tolerance?

Or should we raise another generation to express nice words about anti-racism on social media while Malmö's Jewish schoolchildren are unable to go to the schools they want?

Pro-Israel Rally in Irvine

 On May 12, 2021, there was a pro-Israel rally held in Irvine promoted by Stand With Us. Yours  Truly was there and took some pictures and video which are seen below. There were 200-300 people there by my estimation with plenty of American and US flags. Many motorists who passed by honked their horns in support.

After about an hour, no doubt the word spread throughout the area, and the pro-Palestinian hotheads began passing by giving us the finger and shouting obscenities. A handful of young pro-Palestinians walked through the crowd with their keyyifas. For the most part, they were left alone, and a few people engaged them in civil conversation. There were no incidents though one young man who appeared to be in his 20s appeared by the look in his eyes like he was ready to explode any second. He also attracted the attention of security, and they kept a close eye on him.  Fortunately, there were no incidents.

Oh, the Humanity!!

Felip Dewinter, leader of the conservative Vlaams Belang party, which opposes mass Islamic migration to Belgium, has posted a short video on his Twitter page of "refugees" arriving at Almeria, Spain from North Africa. Instead of the bedraggled women and children, what we see is what we almost always see: Young men in their 20s. In this case, they appear to be healthy, well-dressed, with the latest fashion, and cell phones in their hands.

Translation from Dutch by Fousesquawk:

"Look at the profile of these "refugees" from North Africa who arrived in the past days in Almeria, Spain. All trendily-dressed young guys, sneakers, mod haircuts, mobile phones at the women or children. Do we have to be in solidarity with that?"

My Prayers Go With Israel



Every few years, we have to go through these exercises. The terrorists of Hamas in Gaza launch rockets into Israel, who responds as they should. Arabs in Israel, Palestinians, or whatever they call themselves, riot at the Temple Mount, and the world plays along with the Palestinian pretensions that this is the 3rd Holiest Site in Islam, blah blah, blah.  Meanwhile, The worldwide propaganda machine of the Palestinians goes into overdrive, and the world's left and the world's media support the Palestinians.

Sadly, we now have an American administration in place whose support for the Jewish state is lukewarm at best. The Democrat party is now under the control of disreputable Islamists like Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib.

Every time this happens, I wish the IDF would just wipe out Hamas and take back Gaza. But it always ends with a cease-fire, and we await the next round of Hamas attacks and Israel's response.
