Bnei Brak housing project discriminates against Sephardics

An investigation into a Haredi housing project in the enclave of Bnei Brak discovered Jews from Sephardic backgrounds were not welcome:
Mizrahi and Sephardic Jews seeking to buy homes in the "David's Gardens" housing project in Bnei Brak claim they have been discriminated against.

The project, named after David Lubinsky of the Lubinsky Group, is currently being built in an area between HaRav Kahanman Street and Highway 4.

Yedioth Ahronoth and Ynet have received numerous complaints alleging the Lubinsky Group sales representatives and private investors were doing everything in their power to avoid having to sell apartments to anyone who is not Ashkenazi.

A Yedioth journalist calling to ask about apartments under the Mizrahi last name Hadad was told there were no apartments available. "Try in three or four months," the sales representative, Tzipi, advised.

When calling again, this time under the distinguished Ashkenazi name Sternbach, Tzipi was much more courteous and offered one of the nicer apartments available.

When asked what kind of population is expected to live in the 500 housing units in the complex, Tzipi answered: "Very homogeneous. Fifty percent Lithuanians, 50 percent Hasidic."

And what about Sephardic and Mizrahi Jews? "There are some," Tzipi replied with some trepidation. "Very few."
If the majority are being denied services, or the non-Sephardic tenants are hostile to them, that's bad. Whoever the cultists are behind this scheme, they should be taken to task for their grave mistakes.

Iraq's still rife with antisemitism

So much, in fact, that the family of the Iraqi contestant in the recent Miss Universe paegeant had to flee because of her friendship with the Israeli contestant:
Miss Iraq, Sarah Idan, became friendly with fellow contestant Adar Gandelsman, the Israeli contestant in the Miss Universe International Beauty Pageant held in Las Vegas last month. They even posted pictures together on Instagram, wishing “love and peace” to all – but the reaction of Idan’s fellow countrymen has been anything but peaceful.

So many people posted comments that cursed her for this act that the 27-year-old beauty queen felt she had to defend herself, noting in another post that the picture only showed her desire for peace and “does not signal support for the government of Israel and does not mean I agree or accept its policies in the Arab homeland.” And she apologized to anyone who considered it “harmful to the Palestinian cause.” But, courageously, she did not remove the photo from her account.

Idan’s participation in the swimsuit competition of the event also aroused great anger, with her family actually leaving Baghdad temporarily after being threatened by their more conservative relatives after that preliminary round of the pageant. However, Miss Israel told Israeli TV Wednesday that Idan’s relatives have now been forced to leave Iraq because of the anger over their joint picture, as well as ones of her modeling in a bikini.

“The two of those things together caused a mess for her back home where people made threats against her and her family that if she didn’t return home and take down the photos, they would remove her (Miss Iraq) title, that they would kill her,” Adar Gandelsman said.
Because of this, she's practically living in the USA now, where she's studying as a musician. I do think she should've avoided bringing up the "palestinian cause" mainly because it won't mollify the monsters. And this reaction compounds the failure of the Bush/Obama administrations to change the cultural attitudes in Iraq even after Saddam Hussein was deposed, making the war in Iraq meaningless. If cultural/ideological beliefs aren't changed, then the problem only persists.

Satmar's overlord condemns recognition of Jerusalem, the Conservative Judaist movement defends

Two interesting contrasts in who abhors recognition of Jerusalem and who appreciates it. In the former category, we have the Satmar's head honcho, Aaron Teitelbaum:
The head of one of the two rival groups of the staunchly anti-Zionist Satmar Hassidic movement ripped into President Trump for recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's capital last week.

Satmar, known as one of the most dogmatically anti-Zionist Hassidic sects, refuses to recognize the State of Israel and calls on members living in Israel not to vote in national elections, even for haredi parties and not to accept any funding from the state, including National Insurance payments. Satmar, however, does care for the welfare of Jews and runs the free meals for those staying in hospitals for Shabbat to care for loved ones.

Speaking before thousands of his followers at a celebration on Saturday night at the New York Expo Center in the Bronx, the head of one of the two Satmar groups that split after the previous Grand Rabbi's death, Rebbe Aharon Teitelboim, said that Trump had no right to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

"We declare in the name of haredi Judaism: Jerusalem, the holy city, will not be the capital of the Zionist state, even if the President of the United States says it is," said Teitelboim.
It figures he'd even speak even in the name of haredis who don't agree with him. He's once again proven the Satmar are the defect in Orthodoxy who're hell-bent on proving themselves the closest allies to Islamofascists. That's practically why they distort the whole meaning of Zionism, when it's just a synonym for patriotism.

In the latter category, we have the Conservative movement, who've supported Donald Trump's recognition:
The Conservative movement’s US, Israel and global branches have welcomed US President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, while calling for progress in advancing a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

The statement comes in contrast to the declaration of the Reform movement, which said the decision was “ill-timed” and would “exacerbate the conflict.” The Conservative movement highlighted this difference in its statement to the Hebrew press.

The statement, published by its constituent institutions on Thursday, said it was “pleased by Trump’s declaration, and expressed the hope that the process of transferring the US embassy to Jerusalem begins in the near future.

“The status of Jerusalem is a matter to be settled in direct negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians. But in recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and planning to move the American embassy to a location under uncontested Israeli sovereignty, the US government acknowledges the age-old connection that Israel and the Jewish people maintain with the holy city,” read the statement authored by the Conservative movement’s Rabbinical Assembly, the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism, Masorti Israel and Masorti Olami.
Though the leadership may hold onto positions you could disapprove of, their backing for Trump's declaration of recognition is a positive step, and helps set them apart from both the Satmar and the awful Reform movement, who've also unshockingly voiced their support for the PLO's demands. We certainly don't need those two, and it's funny they'd have such problems with each other when they share some common ground on the aspects of evil together.

Jihadists just arrived in Sweden, and almost immediately attacked a synagogue

Sweden's fiasco of immigration continues to take a toll as Chanuka takes place (Hat tip: Jihad Watch):
Three men have been arrested for the attempted firebombing of a Swedish synagogue in Gothenburg, and according to a far-left group all three are recent asylum seekers from Syria and Palestine.
So at least one must be from Israel, but the original reports - or the activists themselves - refer to it by the delegitimizing name.
The men, aged 18, 20, and 21, were arrested by police following the attack, which saw a group of around 20 masked individuals attack a Gothenburg synagogue with firebombs in an effort to burn the building down. The three men arrested in connection with the attack are said to be asylum seekers who came to Sweden this year from the Middle East, according to George Soros-funded far-left group Expo.

Expo, who are known for their activism against right-wing groups in Sweden, claim they spoke to President of the Swedish Western Regional Police Ulla Brehm, who confirmed the arrests. They also say that they obtained court documents which showed that all three suspects are asylum seekers and that the trio pled not guilty to charges of deliberate arson.

The attack occurred around the same time as a demonstration in the heavily migrant-populated city of Malmö, where a group of around 200 demonstrators protested the decision of U.S. President Donald Trump to recognise Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

Participants at the event chanted anti-Semitic rhetoric, declaring: “We have announced the intifada from Malmö. We want our freedom back, and we will shoot the Jews.”
So a Soros-funded activist group appears to have had something to do with enabling these vile scum to enter Sweden, and unsurprisingly, many of the Islamofascists against recognition of Jerusalem made death threats. A pure disgrace.

Bangladeshi jihadist planted pipebomb near NYC bus and subway terminal

The threat of terrorism still lurks the streets of New York, as another ISIS worshiper tried to commit terrorism, and thankfully, this time, no one was murdered, and the jihadist was captured:
A terrorist detonated a pipe bomb in a subway passage between Times Square and the Port Authority Bus Terminal — one of the busiest transit hubs in the world — during the Monday morning rush-hour, injuring three people and causing commuter chaos.

Akayed Ullah, a Bangladeshi native, detonated part of his “low tech” explosive in the passage just 200 feet from the bus terminal at West 42nd St. and Eighth Ave. at 7:20 a.m., officials said. Three commuters suffered minor injuries
, officials said.

After the explosion, Port Authority cops struggled with Ullah, 27, who had wires attached to his body, sources said. The device was affixed to his body with Velcro and zip ties, police officials said.

He tried to set off the rest of his bomb, but only part of it went off. Two PAPD officers grabbed him and successfully removed the explosives without further incident. [...]

Ullah was taken to Bellevue Hospital with burns to his hands and abdomen and also lacerations. He is expected to survive, sources said. [...]

Byron Woodhouse, 55, said he saw people sprinting for safety in the wake of the explosion.

“It was loud. It was scary,” he said. “People were running all over the place.”

Ullah has been in the country for about seven years, Bratton said.
The NYPD's investigating, but who knows if the press will keep focusing on this incident? Soon enough, they'll likely bury the story rather than call for keeping these monsters out of the country. The immigrant himself should be punished severely for his offensive act.

Beit Shemesh municipality finally takes down the majority of the modesty signs

There's still two more they have to do, and prove they won't allow the extremist hoodlums to get in the way, but for now, the threat of incarceration for failure to comply with orders seems to have had an effect:
Following a threat to lock up senior officials in the Beit Shemesh municipality for contempt of court, officials from the municipal authority began removing so-called modesty signs from radical neighborhoods in the city on Monday morning.

Large numbers of police personnel are present in the area to protect the municipal workers from potentially violent extremist Haredi (ultra-Orthodox) men who have gathered to protest the removal of the signs, and who have tried to block roads in the vicinity.

Cranes were brought in to remove one of the most prominent signs on the Nahar Hayarden street but, somewhat ingeniously, the radicals who had placed the sign in the first place had apparently taken the trouble to spray paint warnings directly on the wall of the building for women to dress in accordance with the strictures of the neighborhood, and then placed the sign over it.

So when the sign was removed, the words “Passage [through the neighborhood] is only with modest clothing” were plainly visible for all to see.
I don't suppose they thought to either wash it away or paint over it?
A spokesman for the Beit Shemesh municipal authority said that six of the eight signs ordered removed by the court had been taken down on Monday, at a cost of NIS 50,000.
Well gee, what happened to all the money they swindled, supposedly for paying taxes? Hey, if they'd respected the law earlier, they wouldn't have had to spend even that much.
He also noted that another of the signs removed on Nahar Hayarden had already been physically replaced, but that the police had decided not to remove it again due to violent disturbances from Haredi radicals who had gathered at the site.
Not good enough, and that's why, if another legal motion has to be filed, then so be it. I don't expect the whole saga to end here, and so, if more messages need to be sent, and if the police have to quell violence with tear gas or skunk liquid, then so be it. The extremists cannot be allowed to continue with this sharia-crap at the expense of taxpayers.

Americans born in Jerusalem should be allowed to have Israel marked on their passports

The attorneys in the Zivotovsky case have appealed to Donald Trump to get the State Department to start listing Israel upon passports for people with US citizenship born in Jerusalem:
The attorneys in the landmark Jerusalem passport lawsuit are calling on Trump to instruct the State Department to list “Israel” as the birthplace of American citizens born in Jerusalem.

Attorneys Nathan Lewin and Alyza D. Lewin represented Jerusalem-born Menachem Zivotofsky, whose parents first sued the State Department in 2003, after it wrote “Jerusalem” rather than “Israel” on his passport as his place of birth. In June 2015, the Supreme Court ruled, 6-3, that the president has exclusive power to decide which country to recognize as sovereign in a given territory.

In the wake of President Donald Trump’s Dec. 6 recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, the Lewins hope the previous U.S. policy will be reversed.

“Menachem Binyamin Zivotofsky and his parents view the president’s announcement today as the formal recognition by the United States that Jerusalem, being the capital of Israel, is necessarily in Israel as surely as Tel Aviv and Haifa are in Israel,” the Lewins said in an exclusive statement to JNS.

“We will be requesting promptly that, in light of the president’s statement today, Menachem Zivotofsky be issued a United States passport designating his place of birth as ‘Israel,’” the statement continued. “The president’s formal recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel should also entitle every United States citizen born in Jerusalem to have his or her United States passport automatically show ‘Israel’ as his or her place of birth.”

Although the president announced U.S. recognition of Jerusalem, he did not immediately take any steps to implement it, such as relocating the American embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. The passport question thus could emerge as the key test of how the president’s declaration will be implemented.
Absolutely. It's time to start proving Jerusalem be a non-issue to getting a passport listing Israel as the country it's in. If Trump can prove he's capable of ensuring this, it'll be another gold star for his record.

Geert Wilders says Pew report on illegal Muslim immigration to Europe is a wakeup call

Geert Wilders has written about Pew Research's latest findings, which indicate high levels of Muslim immigration to Europe - especially Sweden - by now, and rightly says it must serve as a wakeup call to what reality's become on the continent. And he also notes something very disturbing censors in France did after he warned about it earlier:
Last week, I posted a tweet with a picture from the Pew report, accompanied by the text “An existential problem: our population is being replaced. And it will get much worse if we don’t de-Islamise soon!” A few hours later, the tweet was censored in France. In the country of President Emmanuel Macron, the people are not allowed to know the truth.
That too should serve as a wakeup call that Macron's government is one of the worst running the store now, and there's every chance they could be working to clog the country with more Islamofascists and violence. This cannot go unopposed.

On a similar note, the official Pew report says that even if illegal immigration were stopped now, the Muslim population as it is would continue to surge:
Even in the unlikely case that all migration from outside the European Union suddenly and permanently ended, the new research on Europe’s rapidly shifting demographics found that by 2050 the Muslim population of the continent would hit 7.4 per cent, up from 4.9 per cent in 2016.
How to stop it? The best way would be to first exile those who pose a threat, by revoking their citizenship. In fact, there's a valid case that a new form of passport has to be conceived, one that could be electronic rather than just paper documents. That's a good way to deal with the problems for starters.

Security guard stabbed at Jerusalem's central bus station

Another Islamofascist sought revenge over America's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capitol:
A security guard is in severe condition following a stabbing attack near the Central Bus Station in Jerusalem on Sunday, according to police reports.

Magen David Adom Emergency Medical services said that at 2:15 pm paramedics tended to a 35-year-old male security guard with a stab wound to his upper body on Jaffa Street in Jerusalem.

Police told The Jerusalem Post that the attacker approached the security station at the entrance to the Central Bus Station, stabbed a security guard and began running away down Jaffa Street.

He was apprehended by a citizen, reportedly a cab driver. The attacker was then arrested by police.

The police spokesperson confirmed that the attacker was a 24-year-old Palestinian man. According to The Jerusalem Post's sister publication Maariv, the attacker was from the West Bank city of Nablus and held an Israeli work permit.

Police are at the scene and the surrounding area has been closed off. Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat has arrived at the scene as well.

The suspect was taken alive but suffered a head wound, according to United Hatzalah. He is being transferred to Shaare Zedek Hospital for medical treatment.
This is an utter disgrace that the perpetrator's being given medical treatment. He doesn't deserve it. What he does deserve is condemnation by all concerned for taking out his anger over petty, non-existent issues and perpetuating anti-semitism in the name of the Religion of Peace.

It'd be wonderful if Neturei Karta left Israel because of Donald Trump's recognition of Jerusalem

Guess who's threatening to leave Israel as a result of Trump's courageous step?
The 'Neturei Karta' faction has threatened that its members may leave Israel as a result of US President Donald Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of the Jewish state.

Neturei Karta is a small, extremist haredi faction which opposes the existence of a Jewish state. The faction's support for the government of Iran in its calls for the destruction of Israel and for terrorist groups have led to its ostracization by the wider haredi community.

The sect had campaigned against the president's decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Yoel 'Yoelish' Kraus, an anti-Zionist figure with ties to the Neturei Karta movement, told the Kikar Hashabbat Hebrew news site that the sect may "consider leaving the country" in light of the president's decision.
Let's hope they do. They're even worse than the Satmar clan they spun out of, and have done a considerable amount of harm to Israel for many years. Their departure from Israel would be a great mercy upon us all.

It remains to be seen where they'd go. England? Sweden? Or even Qatar and Dubai? Those would be great places for them, I figure, and they might as well start packing, because there's no place for them in a country believing in self-respect and dignity. The Karta kreeps won't be missed if they go.

Haredi politicians have a tepid, otherwise negative response to Trump's recognition of Jerusalem

If there's any fifth column the anti-Israel left can rely upon for victim-blaming mentality, it's the ultra-Orthodox politicians in the Knesset and even "opinionators". For example, here's one dummy from the UTJ party:
Haredi politicians on Wednesday offered a reserved response to U.S. President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

Deputy Education Minister Meir Porush (United Torah Judaism) argued that Trump’s declaration could lead to a diplomatic process being forced on Israel.

"Trump's declaration of recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel will cost us dearly and in the diplomatic plan that he will present, it will harm us," said Porush.

“It is preferable to build in Judea and Samaria and in neighborhoods of Jerusalem where they are crying for housing, rather than a declaration that has no substance,” he added.

Porush’s colleague, Deputy Knesset Speaker MK Yisrael Eichler, had similar sentiments.

"I welcome the U.S. recognition of Jerusalem. But I would prefer a thousand apartments for young couples in Jerusalem to one building of the American embassy. I pray that the declaration will not cost us the blood of terror attacks,” said Eichler.
Ahem. There are more plans to build, but that aside, their reaction is still quite insulting to the intellect. Who says the declaration's got no substance? Only pea-brains like them, that's for sure. I also miss the part where they say the Islamofascists should get the hell out of Israel if they don't like what's been done now.

And then, guess who else sides with the bad mentality, his dislike for Reform/Conservative sects notwithstanding? The dhimmi "rabbi" Avi Shafran:
Many in the broader Jewish world, the one, that is, beyond my cloistered Orthodox environs, have voiced criticism of President Trump’s declaration of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and of his plan to move our embassy there.

The critics include the Union for Reform Judaism, the Association of Reform Zionists of America, the Central Conference of American Rabbis, the Women’s Rabbinic Network, J Street and The New Israel Fund.

Some of my fellow Orthos may feel that those critics are anti-Israel or, at best, deeply misguided. I don’t agree. Not only am I heartened to see Jewish passion, civilly communicated, about an important Jewish issue, but I understand the latter groups’ concerns. In some ways, I even share them.

The goal of us all, however deep our theological or political differences may be, is that peace reign in Israel, and none of us can know whether Mr. Trump’s announcement will bring that desideratum closer or, God forbid, push it even farther away.

While the president’s action was a simple recognition of reality—not to mention a reflection of long-standing American law, i.e. The Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995—I am sensitive, as are the president’s critics, to the impact of his move on the deep-seated, sincere feelings of Arabs in Israel and the Palestinian Authority areas, many of whom have characterized the new American policy as an ugly, callous affront to their sensibilities.
Wow, fascinating! If he's got such a poor position on Jerusalem's validity, and even a lenient, otherwise accepting view of Islam, then no wonder he's got such a lenient view of Haredi extremists. Of course, the funny thing is how he wrote this crappy op-ed to argue that Reform should consider "cultural sensitivity" towards the brand of "Orthodox" he adheres to, even as he sides with them full force on any position that could harm Israel. And what's this, he views the PLO as legit?
But zoom in with me, please, to a small part of modern Jerusalem, a parcel that sits in its Old City: The Temple Mount. It is a place, incidentally, where Israel shows respect for Muslim Arabs’ feelings, where two large mosques have functioned unhindered even after Israel conquered the area in 1967, despite the fact that the site in antiquity served as the worship-locus of all Jews’ ancestors.
Does he know that Muslims on the Temple Mount have many times over the years acted with violence, and even destroyed some antiquities? His whole viewpoint is naive in the extreme, and he should be ashamed of himself for basically shunning his heritage that the Temple Mount happens to be, all because he doesn't want to "offend" people who consider violence a perfectly acceptable reaction in every way, shape and form. As a result, how can I possibly accept his argument about what he considers Jewish "norms"? Coming from a supremacist like him, it's awfully rich.

Anyway, it's still quite bizarre how somebody can say he has a problem with a branch of Judaism yet fully agrees with a cowardly position said branch extols. Why do anti-Zionist Haredis and Reform have a problem with each other, yet make strange bedfellows on anti-Israelism? Shafran's just proven why some critics of ultra-Orthodoxy within Orthodox circles themselves find his visions so offensive - because he really does undermine the sect/movement as a whole with his 5th column approach.
