Berlin Street Assault on Kippah Wearing Teen Sign of Epidemic Anti-Semitism

 

Below we will include a video of a Kippah wearing teen taken by the victim, which explains the shaky and disjunctive shots, being assaulted and whipped with a belt by another youth. We will begin with an interview taken in Hebrew by The Times of Israel. The Jewish Kippah wearing youth was quoted telling of the events, “It happened right here, next to my home, when I was on my way to the train station with my friend. The truth is, I’m surprised something like this happened to me. I’m still in shock. We came out of our home, my friend and I, wearing our Kippahs, and walked down the street. We weren’t talking with anyone else. Three people came from over there” (points down the street from where attacker came) “and started cursing us from over there. We didn’t talk to anyone, didn’t answer them. So when they kept cursing us, my friend asked them to stop cursing, and that got them angry. So one of them ran at me. I immediately felt it was important to film, because I didn’t think we could catch him before police arrived. I wanted to give police something to go on.”

 

 

Levi Salomon, spokesman from Jewish Forum for Democracy and Against Antisemitism stated, “This shows that Jewish people are not safe here either.” Well, if by here he means throughout Europe and not just Berlin, then we are forced by events to agree. This is not reserved just for Europe as similar reports have come from South Africa, Australia and even North America. Even some of the most innocuous of protests where one would expect inclusion, the Women’s March after the Inauguration of President Trump a year ago January anti-Semitism reared its head at numerous locations across the nation. The most obvious was the rejection of a group of women who supported everything the march represented but their being Zionists lead to their being refused and rejected by the organizers of the Women’s March. There are dozens of stories such as Can You Be a Zionist Feminist? Linda Sarsour Says No and By Rejecting Jews, Intersectionality Betrays Itself plus ADL CEO: Boycott of Scarlett Johansson’s Women’s March Speech was “Contemptible” as well as I’m Glad the Dyke March Banned Jewish Stars additionally here in Three asked to leave Chicago LGBT march over ‘triggering’ Star of David flags (see picture below) and lastly also here in Everything You Need to Know About Anti-Semitism in the Women’s March Movement. Here are examples of the people who claim that they are for everyone’s freedom, well, I guess we need to add as long as they hate Israel, anything less makes one instantly into some kind of monster to be shunned and refused even the smallest sympathy or respect normally offered a human-being. We are talking about people on the all loving, all hugging leftern-most left of the far left wing, the ones who define the feminist wing of the Democrat and other leftist Parties and the ones who define who is to be seen and treated as a rightful female personage. Apparently Jews or anyone who has a love of Israel, any Zionist inclinations, are less than human and are likely just what Linda Sarsour was raised to believe from the Quran, Zionists are the apes and pigs as explained by MEMRI and further it is explained that the Jews are said to be turned into apes and swine for generally disbelieving in Allah’s revelations. Ms. Sarsour has not travelled far from the teaching from her youth as she refuses to permit Jews because they support the Jewish State and goes further to blame Israel for the sins of the Palestinian Authority and Hamas who are the actual oppressors of the Palestinians she claims reside in Israel. The Palestinian Arabs are separate from the Israeli Arabs and live under self-rule. Israeli Arabs have full and equal rights with Israeli Jews as do Israelis of every religion from Baha’i to Buddhist to Christian and every other religion including Islam in all its variants, something not even true in the vast majority of Arab states where they prefer one version of Islam over the others.

The serious problem is the rapidly rising anti-Semitism which is mostly occurring under the media radar often going unreported by the national media and only found in local print and radio and television news. Synagogues across the United States and especially Europe and South Africa have security around their grounds most often armed whenever they are expecting a larger observance such as in the High Holidays, for Bar Mitzvahs of large families and every event where the numbers of people is substantial. In France, the government has placed the military guarding Synagogues and Jewish schools round the clock seven days a week. Germany has admitted they are unable to provide the coverage which would be necessary to provide for the safekeeping of Jewish schools and synagogues. French new President Macon also promises to continue armed guards at Synagogues and Jewish schools as reported in this article, “ France’s Macron vows to fight anti-Semitism online and off.” In neighboring Germany we read, “Police must guard every synagogue in Germany, says Merkel, which shows the seriousness of anti-Semitism there. Then we come to Sweden where even the New York Times is awake to the problem covered in their article, “The Uncomfortable Truth About Swedish Anti-Semitism.” The question which will be coming down the pike and soon require addressing is how can the United States protest every Jewish school and Synagogue should things start to approach the same levels of anti-Semitism as is being experience across much of Europe and other areas around the globe. Such a need would be a formidable challenge logistically and financially. This becoming necessary in the United States and Canada would bring on challenges beyond imagination as these two nations have more Jewish citizens than Europe by multiple of three-plus.

 

Anti-Semitism is rising around the globe while Israel continues to face challenges to her existence beyond anything faced before. Recently, Iranian Army Commander Brigadier General Kiumars Heidari has warned, Iranian Armed Forces “are much more powerful than before” and that “the date has been set” for Israel’s destruction, as he spoke in Tehran ahead of Iran’s Army Day. Iran has further claimed that Israel is now in direct confrontations with the Islamic Republic of Iran. This was over the Israeli strike against the control center which controlled the explosive armed Iranian drone was intercepted shortly after it entered Israeli airspace obviously on a mission to destroy targets in Israel. Iranian forces have recently been gathered closer than previous on the Israeli Golan Heights on the northeastern border with Syria. Add on the Gaza rioting and threats to breach the border as threatened by Hamas leader Sinwar that, “‘We Will Tear Israelis’ Hearts Out.” (see video below) Sinwar further threatened that the rioters, “eat the livers of those besieging (Gaza),” using an Arabic idiom that means to take revenge on someone. He has also explained about the violence that, “The March of Return will continue. It will not stop until we remove this transient border (the Gaza-Israel border).” Another of his threats is that, “March of Return affirms that our people can’t give up one inch of the land of Palestine. The protests will continue until the Palestinians return to the lands they were expelled from 70 years ago.” His claim here is the erasure of Israel completely followed by their cleansing the Jews from the population just as the Hamas Charter states along with their intent to murder every Jew on the planet.

These riots and rushes at the border fence with attempts to cut and breach the border fence are predicted to last six weeks in total and climax around the 11th to the 15th of May coinciding with the announcement of the moving of the United States embassy to Jerusalem (see above map and insert). Part of the aim is to influence the decision by President Trump and if Hamas, Islamic Jihad and friends in terror manage to cause sufficient violence and are able to cross the border marauding through southern Israel, there is their hope that this might deter the announcement. Hamas and friends are aware that they have numerous allies who will pressure President Trump from within the State Department and the Middle East departments which are peopled by Arabs and not that many Jews, like none. The rioting and the anti-Semitism in the Middle East and across North Africa is simply the level of hate which areas within Europe are approaching. There are those predicting that there may come a time where Jews will only be accepted residing in Israel and any Jews residing outside of Israel will face levels of anti-Semitism well over the top. Additionally, the nations of the United Nations will almost to an entirety will have turned on Israel and possibly have removed Israel from her United Nations membership and revoked the recognition of Israel claiming that they have dissolved the nation of Israel. Fortunately, the world will have sufficient other problems that the world will not be placing their armies on the Israeli border threatening her destruction. Eventually, this unbridled hatred will wane and Israel will gain acceptance. This will come about due to some simply facts. One is that despite how she is treated by the numerous national governments, Israel is often still the first to have people on the ground giving the necessary aid to people after a natural disaster. Israel is a nation that produces great advances in virtually every area from computers to agriculture to physics to medicine on and on. Israel has given the world everything from the technology for cell phones to instant messaging to drip irrigation to the cherry tomato and even more here and here. Israel will win the minds and later their hearts and it will become have relations with Israel or be left behind. Well, that is our hope at least.

If Obama and the United Nations Got Their Way

 

Imagine with us for a minute if President Obama, United States Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power and the United Nations with its adoption of UNSC Res. 2334 were to be fully implemented as intended by these anti-Zionist and anti-Israel forces which include numerous anti-Semites and the 1949 Armistice Line were to become the border between Israel and an Arab Palestinian terror state ruled by one of three forces, Hamas with backing from the Muslim Brotherhood, Islamic State with solid Arab backing by Saudi Arabia, the Gulf States and who knows who else, or Hezballah backed fully by Iran. This is the official position of the Democrat Party and is what their new leadership with Democrat National Committee Chair Tom Perez and Deputy Chair Keith Ellison. This was the same position of Democrat Party Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton and the position held by the Democrat Leadership for the Women’s Marches against President Trump, pro-Palestinian, anti-Israeli Linda Sarsour and convicted Palestinian terrorist Rasmea Odeh. This is the position of leading Democrat Party people who are also Jews including but not limited to Bernie Sanders and Senator Chuck Schumer. We suspect that they would never desire to live under the same conditions they would have imposed upon the Israelis residing in Tel Aviv. We will ignore the fact that at the border, which they would have imposed, there are the Judean Hills which rise directly along the lines giving the Arab side oversight allowing them to directly observe the entire coastal plain laid out before them all the way to watching people on some of the beaches along the Mediterranean Sea. We will just ask them if they would allow some group of American hating terrorists to be given their own nation within the United States giving them the lands which comprise Prince Georges and Montgomery Counties in Maryland. That would be the reality of the situation, a mere nine miles between the Capital Building and the Maryland suburbs is identical to the distance from the Judean Hills and the Mediterranean Sea which places all of Tel Aviv and the vast majority of Israeli infrastructure and production within that range.

 

Most major cities of the world would not be fit between the proposed border under UNSC Res 2334 of Israel and the Arab state it would create as its center as it averages a mere twelve miles and is only nine miles at its narrowest point (see map below). Ben Gurion International Airport would be within six miles, Tel Aviv under twelve and a half miles, and Netanya under nine miles with all within direct line of sight allowing for adjustment of rocket and mortar fire to be made easily from the many hilltops (see image depicted below). These examples give one a direct idea as to why Israel would face immediate destruction should it not control these areas with the Israeli Defense Force (IDF) and the story gets even worse in Jerusalem. From the taller buildings in East Jerusalem much of Western Jerusalem becomes subjected to direct sniper fire making crossing many streets dangerous. Entire areas of Jerusalem become uninhabitable. An entire ridge of apartments had to brick up their windows such that snipers would not gain targets at night when the lights on inside the apartment might throw shadows visible on curtains to regular sights or infrared sights which show heat signatures through curtains but are incapable of seeing through brick walls. Looking at the map below, Jerusalem sits at the end of a long narrow connecting corridor where the road and railways are often located between higher ground and in open terrain which should be obvious from the map immediately below. This means that Jerusalem could find itself cut off from the rest of Israel should the Arabs decide to risk a war through such an act. Cutting off Jerusalem and its suburbs from being supplied by the rest of Israel would be considered an urgent situation and a casus belli declaration of war requiring an immediate response by Israel.

The idea of an Arab state was not the intention of the Oslo Accord which delineated the Palestinian Authority be permitted an autonomous zone where they would enjoy political rights electing their own general leadership and city and town councils and mayors while remaining under Israeli dominion and with the IDF permitted operational dominion over their regions and be responsible for their defense. This would provide a situation where the Palestinian Authority would need little more than a policing force while Israel would be responsible for protecting them from any invaders such as Hezballah, Islamic State or other belligerent groups be they a national army or terror army. The Arabs west of the Jordan River must remain under Israeli control as there honestly is nowhere near sufficient room nor can there be drawn defendable borders between two independent nations west of the Jordan River reaching to the Mediterranean Sea. This is a reality which has become more and more true as weaponry has become more dangerous and capable of destruction which could make life on the coastal plains completely destroyable from the higher elevations if Judea and Samaria. This is why these areas must continue to be controlled by the IDF. The fact that the Arab Palestinians have yet to obey the conditions of any agreement they have entered with Israel and this is one further and major reason that Israel must not and cannot rely on any treaty or pact signed with the Palestinian Authority. They never altered their charter and it remains calling for the destruction of Israel and the end to the Jews residing there and continues to use their media, schools, road names, youth tournaments and park names to glorify terrorists and incite further violence against Israel. These are the realities which the world needs accept and realize the truth, the reality of the facts of the ground as well as on the ground. This is also why the settlements are a vital part of the defense of Israel as they control some of these vital highlands and also provide the IDF with places from which to organize their operations. Without the settlements the entirety of Judea and Samaria would become a deathtrap for the IDF troops operating within these areas as they would always be completely isolated and surrounded by potential enemies ready to ambush them at any moment.

 

Israel is not attempting to make any agreement impossible but Israel is also not about to commit suicide just because the world demands she do so. Israel has watched as the world continued to whittle away the lands she was promised starting with the seventy-eight percent of the Mandate Lands which were taken to form Jordan. Then there was the 1948-9 Arab War to Annihilate the Jewish State where Israel lost the Gaza Strip to Egypt and Judea and Samaria to Jordan. These lands were illegally occupied and Israel actually lost land in a war the world claims she won. In the Six Day War in June of 1967 Israel liberated these lands and also captured the Golan Heights and the Sinai Peninsula. When UNSC Res 242 demanded Israel return lands the demand was for Israel to return lands but not all the lands and that Israel was to retain defensible borders. If the world were dealing honestly, they would realize and reward Israel with the entirety of Judea and Samaria and allow the Jordan River to be the Israeli natural border to the east. With modern weaponry which Hamas has proven anyone can construct with simply a machine shop and a small chemical shop, Israel cannot allow such weaponry to be manufactured in Judea and Samaria and fired from the Judean heights down on Tel Aviv and the rest of the coastal plain where there is line of sight targeting. That is the reality and anybody who would simply visit and see the situation for themselves would, providing they desired to be honest and not actually desire Israel to die as the Jewish State and have her people slaughtered, see for themselves that there cannot be any Arab state formed in Judea and Samaria, ever. That is a simple and obvious truth.
