Barbara Kay: France finally admits to its history of Jew hatred. What about the present?

Murders make the news, but pervasive, low-level Muslim violence against Jews is barely registered. Jewish children in France believe it’s normal for soldiers to guard their schools, not having known otherwise

July 16 marked the 75th anniversary of the infamous 1942 mass roundup of French Jews in Paris’s Velodrome d’Hiver (“Vel d’Hiv”), when 13,152 Jews were deported to Nazi death camps. Benjamin Netanyahu’s motorcade arrival at the commemoration ceremony, his limousine sporting gold-fringed Israeli flags, was an electric moment for French Jews, representing the first inclusion of an Israeli head of state in the event’s annual commemorative history.


Google Just Changed Search Results for ‘Jihad’, ‘Sharia’ and ‘Taqiyya’

Queries about Islam and Muslims on the world’s largest search engine have been updated amid public pressure to tamp down alleged disinformation from hate groups.

However, activists who have worked to bring about the changes say more work remains.

In the past, users on Google seeking information about the religion or its adherents would be presented prominently with what many criticized as propaganda from hate groups.

That has recently changed.

Google’s first page results for searches of terms such as “jihad”, “shariah” and “taqiyya” now return mostly reputable explanations of the Islamic concepts. Taqiyya, which describes the circumstances under which a Muslim can conceal their belief in the face of persecution, is the sole term to feature a questionable website on the first page of results.


Let’s import lots more of this vibrant diversity: Pakistan village council orders ‘revenge rape’ of girl

Some 20 people from Multan, Pakistan, have been arrested for ordering the rape of a teenage girl, in revenge for a rape her brother allegedly committed.

Police said the families of the two girls are related.

Members of both had joined forces to decide what should be done.

“A jirga [village council] had ordered the rape of a 16-year-old girl as punishment, as her brother had raped a 12-year-old,” police official Allah Baksh told AFP.

He said the village council was approached earlier this month by a man who said his 12-year-old sister had been raped by their cousin.

The council then ordered the complainant to rape the sister of the accused in return – which police say he did.


Now It’s Genocide Appropriation – Muslim Recoils In Horror At Badly Drawn “Chalkstika Of Doom!”

A FATHER has hit out after police initially refused to class a swastika chalked in graffiti outside his home as a hate incident or crime.

Monty Elnadi, who lives in the Riverdene area of Basingstoke, reported to police the symbol – commonly associated with the far-right – had been daubed on the pavement outside the back door of his family’s home.

However, Mr Elnadi has said the graffiti, which had been discovered by his son on his paper round at around 6.45am on Friday, July 14, would not be reported as a hate crime or hate incident and instead was initially put down to anti-social behaviour.

Mr Elnadi and his family are Muslims and he believes the symbol was deliberately left outside his home.


Germany: Idiot Muslim convert handed jail sentence for terror-related charges

The Higher Regional Court in Düsseldorf on Wednesday sentenced Sven Lau, who is accused of helping fund and equip Islamist militants in Syria, to five-and-a-half years in prison.

German prosecutors had asked for a sentence of six-and-a-half years in prison for Lau, who has been in custody since December 2015.

Lau, who was detained in the western German city of Mönchengladbach , was found guilty of supporting the terror group Jamwa – the full name of which roughly translates as “army of emigrants and helpers” – which is active in Syria and which last year switched allegiance from the self-styled “Islamic State” (IS) to al Qaeda.


One in 10 caught up in terror attacks likely to suffer PTSD a decade later

At least one in ten of those caught up in the recent terror attacks may still be suffering post-traumatic stress a decade later, a report in the Lancet suggests.

Emergency medicine doctors warned that substantial impairments in everyday functioning should be expected among direct victims, families and paramedics who arrived at such scenes.

And they called for efforts to protect hospitals from attack, with healthcare facilities “no longer sanctuaries but soft targets for terrorists”.


UK Terrorism: ‘Enough’ is Not ‘Enough’

On June 3, Britain underwent its third Islamist terror assault in just ten weeks. Following on from a suicide bombing at Manchester Arena and a car- and knife-attack in Westminster, the London Bridge attacks seemed as if they might finally tip Britain into recognising the full reality of Islamist terror.

The attackers that night on London Bridge behaved as such attackers have before, in France, Germany and Israel. They used a van to ram into pedestrians, and then leapt from the vehicle and began to stab passers-by at random. Chasing across London Bridge and into the popular Borough Market, eye-witnesses recorded that the three men, as they slit the throats of Londoners and tourists, shouted “This is for Allah.”

A day later, British Prime Minister Theresa May made another appearance on the steps of Downing Street, to comment on the latest atrocity. In what appeared to have become a prime ministerial tradition, she stressed that the terrorists were following the “evil ideology of Islamist extremism”, which she described as “a perversion of Islam”. All this was no more than she had said after the Manchester and Westminster attacks, and almost exactly what her predecessor, David Cameron, had said from the same place after the slaughter of Drummer Lee Rigby on the streets of London in 2013, as well as after the countless ISIS executions and atrocities in Syria in the months that followed.


China: Xinjiang Users Arrested For Not Installing State Spyware

Chinese police have reportedly set up checkpoints to ensure that ethnic minorities in the western Xinjiang province have downloaded state-mandated spyware to their mobile devices.

The surveillance app, known as Jingwang, is said to search the device for files that match those blacklisted by the authorities for terror-related content.

It can also prevent the spread of certain content via social media and online chat platforms and block access to illegal and malicious sites, according to reports.

The new rules are only in place in Xinjiang, which has a large population of Uyghur Muslims and a history of social unrest.


Why the Left Protects Islam

Richard Dawkins is no friend to conservatives. The atheist author has spent much of his life deriding Judaism and Christianity. He once stated, “An atheist is just somebody who feels about Yahweh the way any decent Christian feels about Thor or Baal or the golden calf.” Dawkins says that even moderate religious people “make the world safe for extremists.” He’s far to the left on politics: He’s pro-abortion rights, and a supporter of the Labour Party and the Liberal Democrats in Britain.

But he’s also smart enough to recognize that radical Islam is a greater threat to human life than Christianity or Judaism. He explains: “I have criticised the appalling misogyny and homophobia of Islam, I have criticised the murdering of apostates for no crime other than their disbelief. … Muslims themselves are the prime victims of the oppressive cruelties of Islamism.”

Such language makes him a pariah among leftists.


Two more German women ‘identified among group held in Iraq’

A total of four German citizens are among a group of women who were captured by Iraqi forces in the Iraqi city of Mosul last week, a foreign ministry source said on Tuesday.

The foreign ministry on Monday said that two women were among those seized, including a 16-year-old teenager, Linda Wenzel, who had run away from her home in the state of Saxony last year.


Muslim shouting ‘Allahu akbar’ attacks an officer near the Spanish-Moroccan border

Dramatic CCTV footage shows policemen overpowering a knife-wielding man who attacked officers on the Spanish-Moroccan border.

It is understood he was shouting ‘Allahu akbar’ or ‘God is greatest’ as well as other Arabic chants at the time of his rampage, according to local reports.

The video shows police carrying riot shields and batons surrounding the attacker, who is wearing a blue top and cream shorts.
