Islamic jihad massacres – hate crimes en-masse

October 4, 2012

Islamic Jihad massacres, as hate crimes en-masse

Every Islamic terror act, anywhere, is a clear cut case of intolerance. It is always against the “other.”

True, by Islamic Jihad any infidel targets are fair-game. It’s just that some groups are easier targets than others, as “justification” are aided by propaganda, often backed by some radical liberals in the West. Such are many Muslim aggressors posing as “victims.” For instance, those Arab immigrants’ grandchildren, invaders in Jews’ Israel/Palestine who go by the title “Palestinians,” while some in the West really buy the notion that these mass-murderers (who hide behind civilians, to bring about casualties, to be used as trophies) are just about “Palestine-Arab-State,” ignoring or unaware of their real ethnic cleansing aims from the entire Holy Land.

Ethno-religious hatred classics:

Arab supremacy –derived from Koran, Koranic spirit and themes– especially resulting in enslaving Africans and Asians in the Arab world (often having the “inferior” non-Arabs as ‘sex-slaves’ as well) and the genocide in the Sudan (of already 3.5 million, since the 1950s) by a classic combination of Arab racism and Islamic Jihad. The same diabolical combination that “founded” (in the 1920s) the Arab Vs Israel “conflict,” by infamous Mufti who collaborated with the ultimate ‘racists’ – the WW2 Hitler/Nazis. Ever since, the ‘holy war’ against the Jews in the land has always been under the dual slogan of Allah Akbar and Itbach al-Yahud (AKA genocide). Leaving also behind, an inspired legacy of decades (and current) of ugly Nazi style cartoons in the hateful Arab press.

The Armenian Genocide 1915-23, was both: Turkish ethnic supremacy and an overall holy war against Christians. The same goes to Turkish anti-Greek and anti-Assyrian genocide. Totaling a combined 2.7 million Christian victims.

Ethno-Religious Moro-Muslims VS Philippines’ natives.

Ethno-Religious Malay-Muslims VS Thai natives.

Ethno-Religious Islamic-Hausa-Fulani VS Igbo Christians in Biafra Nigeria – 1960s-70s (3 million dead).
Current (2011-13) Boko Haram Islamic mass-murder campaign in that country, deepens the Ethno-Religious divide.

Farrakhan’s Nation of Islam Black-Muslim supremacy’s anti-White racism is deeply woven with radical Islamic vision. So were its linked Zebra murders in the 1970s and the Beltway snipers shootings in 2002.

Ethno-Religious “pure-Muslim” Pakistani VS Bangladeshi (regarded as the impure) genocide – 1971 (3 million dead).

Ethno-Religious “Palestinian” and Lebanese Muslims VS Christian Natives Maronites in Lebanon. 1970s-2000 (at least 100,000 victims).

Iran-Iraq war – 1980s (a million victims – at least). Racism (Arab supremacy vs Aryan-Iranians) and “we are the true Muslims” motivation, on both sides.

Pakistani Sunnis and Shiites VS Ethno-Religious Ahmadis, resulting in mass violence. So is rampant anti-Ahmadi bigotry among “Palestinian” Arabs.

Ethno-Religious Muslim-Uighur VS Han native Chinese. Terror attacks (not just against government but against ordinary Chinese too) recorded.

Ethno-Religious Indonesian Muslims VS Chinese (especially in the late ’90s, mass rape and murder); Vs native Papuans (100,000 dead); Vs native Catholics in E. Timor (1975-99, resulting in 200,000 victims).

One of the ardent supporters and admirers of Osama bin Laden, who celebrated 9/11 massacre, the pan-Arab, pan-Islamic AEL (Arab European League) founded by Arab Lebanese, former Hezbollah D. A. Jahjah, has been accused of inciting racism and violence in Belgium.

Ever since the bloody ‘Islamic theme of al-Aqsa’ intifada erupted (2000), Jews in Europe have been even an easier target to Islamic anti-Semitism, physical attacks and attempted ethnic cleansing. Such as by Arab/African Muslims in France; by Turkish/Iranian Muslims in Germany; by Arab-Muslims in the Benelux, Sweden and Norway. The kidnappers and torturers to death of Ilan Halimi to the sound of reciting the Koran (Paris, 2006) –for instance– were inspired by Hamas literature.
The (2012) Toulouse school massacre by Mohamed Merah of the Islamic hate group ‘Forsane Alizza,’ (NYT reported Jan/23/12, that its site was laced with hate posting, it typically claimed to be “fighting Islamophobia,” and the DailyTelegraph reported Mar/23/12, that in Jan/12, “Forsane Alizza was banned in France for inciting racial hatred,”) made sure to mention those “Palestinians.”
Likewise, Arabs in Latin America, have been targeting Jews.

The Pakistani Jihadi Lashkar-e-Taiba (“Army of the Pure”) in Mumbai (2008), aided by the ISI (Pakistan Spy Agency) specifically targeted Whites, and even more so the Jews.

Ethno-Religious Arab-Muslims VS native Coptic-Christians in Egypt, hate crimes still going on…

Ethno-Religious (mostly separated by origin/ethnicity as well) Shiite VS Sunnis, and vice versa in Iraq (Zarqawi argued that ‘Shia were more dangerous than the “Zionists and Crusaders,”‘ Egyptian Cleric said -Mar/09- “Shiites are worse than Jews,”) and in Pakistan.
Sunni Vs Alawites, Syria (al-Qaeda cleric’s Fatwa -Jul/12- calls Alawites, “greater infidels than the Christians and Jews”).
Bloodshed going on, full force.
A study about 2011 worldwide terror attacks -for example- found 70% of the (over 12,000) killings were perpetrated by Sunni Muslims. That includes: al-Qaeda, Taliban, and others.

Last point but not least: most “conflicts” and bloodshed around the globe today ARE correlated to Islamism.

The decision to pursue an in-depth investigation of this subject was prompted by the anti-Semitic and otherwise racist speech that Farrakhan’s aide, Khallid Muhammad, gave at Kean College in New Jersey. The story was newsworthy in large part because it came just as some mainstream black groups were attempting to form a constructive alliance with Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam. News of the speech loosed a flash flood of reportage and commentary on the subject, and at that time we began the kind of weeks-long investigation a cover story like this one requires. At the same time, we published an article on one telling aspect of the larger story: the fact that some black leaders were offended when whites called on them to denounce racism in other black leaders…

Shouting pickets protest attention to Farrakhan – Baltimore Sun
June 13, 1994 | By Ivan Penn | Sun Staff Writer
A boisterous group of 60 people, marching and waving picket signs, voiced its opposition yesterday to the NAACP for inviting Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan to its summit of African-American community leaders.

Spurred on by Jewish activists and a former NAACP assistant director, the crowd chanted slogans, including “Don’t embrace the racist; Farrakhan is a racist,” outside the headquarters of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People.

We are anti-racist people.

ADC Anti Defamation Australia Report on Louis Farrakhan [1998]

Louis Farrakhan


And
The Nation of Islam (NOI)


Historical Background


The Nation Of Islam was founded by W D Fahd, who claimed to be a prophet and who held strong anti-white views.


Elijah Muhammad was of the first leaders of the group. He assisted in the development of NOI’s bizarre ideology that black people originated from the Moon whilst whites were the result of a botched experiment by a mad scientist (Searchlight December 1997).


Louis Farrakhan


Louis Farrakhan was previously known as Louis Eugene Walcott.


Joined the Nation of Islam (NOI) in 1955 and by the end of 1960 was a minister at the Nation’s Boston mosque.


Farrakhan was a protege of Malcolm X describing him as “the father he never had”.


However following Malcolm’s departure from NOI Farrakhan said”…Such a man as Malcolm is worthy of death.” According To HQ magazine on the February 21 1965 three NOI gunmen murdered Malcolm X. Furthermore, Farrakhan was allegedly accused by the widow of Malcolm X that he was involved in her husband’s murder.


Farrakhan’s racist comments and ideologies date back to 1972 where he made his anti-Semitic and black separatist views known in a Black Muslim publication, “Muhammed Speaks”.


He claimed that “Since the Jews are in control of the mass media, newspapers, television, radio, we knew then that we could begin to look for a concerted attack on Nation of Islam though the mass media.” (Muhammed Speaks 12 May 1972)


Whites, Jews, Catholics and gays are subject to attack as well as blacks that work within the ‘white system’. At a rally in 1985 Farrakhan decried “…we will tar and feather them” and “We will hang them from the highest limb, we will chop off their heads and roll them down the streets.”


 


NOI’s Association with Far-Right Groups


NOI’s extremism of views has led to a series of bizarre allegiances with other far right contemporise that included the Klu Klux Klan and neo-Nazi type organisations.


 


In early 1961 NOI and the KKK had a meeting in Atlanta, Georgia in the US. Both Elijah Muhammad and Malcolm X a NOI leader met KKK dignitaries. The two groups came to the joint opinion that parts of South Carolina and Georgia in the United States should become a black homeland with KKK holding state power. (Searchlight December 1997).


 


Louis Farrakhan has shared a platform at an NOI meeting with members of the American Nazi Party in full dress regalia seated as honoured guests. The NOI publicly accepted donations from a former KKK leader who went on to lead the White Aryan Resistance.


The NOI also holds affiliation with the far-right National Front in Britain. In 1988 the NOI used the Front to import and distribute NOI’s “The Final Call” in Britain.


NOI’s Racist Publications


The NOI are also stockists of racist literature, including the infamous Protocols of the Elders of Zion, the conspiracy laden The Jews And Their Lies, as well as The Secret relationship between the Blacks and the Jews whose premise is that Jews were solely responsible for the killing of 100,000,000 blacks during the slave trade. The group also publishes the notorious anti-Semitic forgery the Protocols of The Elders Of Zion.


Fundraising


The Nation Of Islam operates numerous security contracts (through its security arm the Fruits of Islam) worth millions of dollars, publishes “The Final Call” as well provides numerous other extremist literature. The groups also sells hair and beauty products and runs chains of health clinics.


 


 


What Farrakhan and His Lieutenants Say about:




Narrow-minded, common Jews…The Jews cannot defeat me so I will grind them and crush them into little bits.


– Louis Farrakhan, Flushing New York, May 21, 1998



I called them [Jews] bloodsuckers. I’m not going to change that. Our lessons talk about the bloodsuckers of the poor in the supreme wisdom of the Nation of Islam. It’s that old no-good Jew, that old imposter Jew, that old hook-nose, bagel-eating, lox-eating, Johnny-come-lately perpetrating a fraud, just crawled out of the caves and hills of Europe, so called damn Jew….and I feel everything I’m saying here is kosher.”


-Khalid Abdul Muhammad, Baltimore, MD, February 19, 1994




“Your [whites] history is written in the blood of the human family. It comes out of you like a web comes out of a spider. Murder and lying comes easy for white people….Your history is shedding the blood of all human beings and you came lying to us, deceiving us, then killing us.”


-Louis Farrakhan, Saviour’s Day, February 27, 1994



“There is a little bit of Hitler in all white people.”


-Khalid Abdul Muhammad, NBC’s “Donahue,” May 12, 1994




“Christians preach love but practice hate and tyranny, use God to cover their corrupt and dirty practices.”


-Louis Farrakhan, Northeastern University, April 20, 1985



“The true meaning of Christmas is heathen, vain ignorant, backward white pagan worship and idolatry.”


-Khalid Muhammad, New Haven, CT November 16, 1994




“The Pope is not the Vicar of Christ. The Pope is the representative of the Anti-Christ.”


-Khalid Muhammad, Harlem, NY, May 3, 1994



“They said I called the Pope a ‘no-good cracker’. Did I lie? “


-Khalid Muhammad, February 19, 1994

What is the Nation of Islam?
Submitted on 23 March, 2006 – 15:38


How to beat the racists
 
The Nation of Islam (NoI) was founded in 1930 as a peculiar fusion of Islam and a conservative variant of black nationalism.


The NoI considered whites to be devils and that the answer to American racism was the promotion of black business, racial separation and the creation of a black state.


Black historian Manning Marable describes how the NoI came to be “re-founded” by Louis Farrakhan in 1981:


“[In the 1970s] Most black radicals, influenced heavily by Malcolm X’s public separation from and feud with the Nation in 1964-65, still viewed the organisation with a great deal of scepticism.


“… [Elijah] Muhammad [NoI leader] attempted to establish closer links with the US government and other foreign interests in an effort to resolve his group’s ongoing political and economic troubles. By making peace with Chicago’s political boss, Richard Daley, the Nation was able to eliminate most of the police surveillance and harassment against the sect.


“Imitating the FBI, Nation of Islam members in Philadelphia destroyed that city’s Black Panther Party headquarters in retaliation for the group’s public advocacy of Malcolm X’s ideas.


“In 1972, Muhammad negotiated a $3 million interest-free loan from [Libyan dictator] Colonel Muamar Kadafi which was used to expand Black Muslim enterprises. Despite these gains, the Nation of Islam was still plagued by internal dissension.


“One of the Nation’s most dynamic and powerful ministers, Hamaas Abdul Khaalis (Ernest McGhee) denounced the Nation as a corruption of the true faith, Sunni Islam, in 1972. Khaalis declared that Muhammad was ‘a lying deceiver’ and stated that their leader ‘who inspired former dope addicts and prostitutes to monklike lives of sacrifice, discipline and hard work, was instead stealing his followers’ money and leading them to hell’. For devout defenders of Muhammad, Khaalis’ challenge could not remain unanswered. On 18 January 1973, at least five armed gunmen, all members of the Nation of Islam, entered Khaalis’ Washington, DC, home and butchered five members of his family.


“With Muhammad’s death in 1975, the leadership of the Nation of Islam passed to one of his sons, Wallace. Quickly and efficiently, Wallace Muhammad ‘Malcolmised’ the [sect … a] mixture of racial mythology and religious dogma promulgated by Elijah Muhammad was abandoned in favour of the orthodox teachings of Islam; whites were permitted to attend services and in some instances even joined the group…


“Yet these dramatic changes did not occur without more dissension. Louis Farrakhan, perhaps the most charismatic minister in the Nation after the departure of Malcolm X, had quietly left the Nation by 1978. In February 1981, Farrakhan announced the creation of the ‘old’ NoI under his direction, following the tenets of Elijah Muhammad. Several thousand blacks soon flocked to Farrakhan’s group.” (Race Reform and Rebellion, p 177-8)


The following Farrakhan has built up since 1978 is particularly suprising because of the part he played in the NoI’s feud with Malcolm X. In December 1964, writing as Louis X, Farrakhan wrote, “Malcolm shall not escape… Malcolm is worthy of death.” Malcolm was shot down two months later in February 1965.


In 1994, Malcolm’s widow, Betty Shabazz, was asked on WNBC-TV if she thought Farrakhan had anything to do with her husband’s killing. She answered: “Of course. Yes… Nobody kept it a secret. It was a badge of honour. Everybody talked about it. Yes.”


Moreover, Farrakhan’s NoI has continued Elijah Muhammad’s tradition of links with the fascist right — believing that the Nazis, who also want racial separation, have something in common with the NoI.


In June 1961 a delegation of American Nazi Party members attended the NoI’s convention in Washington DC. In 1962 Nazi Party leader George Lincoln Rockwell, dressed in full Nazi regalia, declared to the NoI Chicago convention: “Elijah Muhammad is to the so-called Negro what Adolf Hitler was to the German people… Heil Hitler!”


Malcolm X, who had been ordered to represent the NoI at a meeting with the fascists in 1961, later wrote to Rockwell, “This is to warn you that I am no longer held in check from fighting white supremacists by Elijah Muhammad’s separatist Black Muslim movement”. (Malcolm Speaks, 1965). In 1964 Malcolm had offered to send people to the Deep South to “give the Ku Klux Klan a taste of their own medicine”.


But in 1985 Farrakhan repeated Elijah Muhammad’s mistakes by allowing Californian Klan leader Tom Metzger to attend an NoI rally in Los Angeles. The NoI accepted a $100 donation from this racist scumbag. Farrakhan has also declared that “Hitler was a very great man” (at a rally for Jesse Jackson, 1984).


The organisation Louis Farrakhan now leads has tacked towards the Democratic mainstream during the 1990s. It remains right-wing, anti-white and anti-Korean (some Korean people run shops in black areas in US cities) .


Farrakhan is anti-abortion, anti-gay and wants to see schools separated by sex. Some of the NoI’s meetings and rallies are closed to women.


The NoI is also profoundly anti-semitic. In the past it has distributed the infamous Protocols of the Elders of Zion, a Russian Tsarist police forgery which claims to show that a Jewish conspiracy exists to control the world. The NoI has its own “Protocols” — The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews claims that: Jews ran the African slave trade; Jews were the major owners of slaves in the US; Jews raped black women; that during Reconstruction, Jews preyed on freed black slaves. Like many anti-semitic texts the NoI claim it is based on the works of “respected Jewish authorities”.


In fact the Secret Relationship is a lying mess in which facts are misrepresented and notorious anti-semites — such as Dostoyevsky — are quoted to prove a point. (In fact Jews were a very small minority of whites in the Deep South and owned, as a proportion, less slaves than other groups of whites.)


Farrakhan believes the Jews control the media and that Judaism is a “dirty religion”.


Farrakhan’s deputy, Khallid Muhammad, called Jews “bloodsuckers of the black nation”.


Speaking in February 1994, Khallid Muhammad said: “God will kill my enemy… that old no-good Jew, that old impostor Jew, that old hooknose, bagel-eating, lox-eating, Johnny-come-lately perpetrating a fraud, just crawled out of the caves and hills of Europe, so-called damn J_w… I will never apologise to this bas_tard — never.”


The NoI and Louis Farrakhan are bad news.

What About the Nation of Islam’s Historical Ties to Fascism?
Published: February 23, 1994


It was widely reported when Louis Farrakhan, head of the Nation of Islam, suspended Khalid Abdul Muhammad, who told an audience at Kean College of New Jersey that Jews are bloodsuckers, gays are sissies, and the Pope is a cracker.


Mr. Farrakhan rebuked the manner in which Mr. Muhammad delivered his message, but Mr. Farrakhan reaffirmed the “truths” of that message! Reporters speculate if this is a repudiation of bigotry or not. But they are silent about the history of the Nation of Islam on these subjects.


In the early 1960’s, at a large gathering of the Nation of Islam, the featured speaker was Elijah Muhammad, its leader. But the speaker just before him, addressing Elijah Muhammad’s followers, was George Lincoln Rockwell, leader of the American Nazi Party.


In the early 1960’s Malcolm X, as a Nation of Islam spokesman, mocked the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and the civil rights movement. At the height of civil rights protest Malcolm traveled to the South, not to partake in civil rights protest, but to negotiate with leaders of the Ku Klux Klan on how to thwart the struggle for civil rights. This scene is omitted from Spike Lee’s film and from the recent PBS documentary on Malcolm X.

The Fruit of Islam who surround Farrakhan as bodyguards reflect an attachment to military trappings, and help build a cult of personality around Minister Farrakhan himself. The demagoguery of Farrakhan and some of his key lieutenants periodically strays into scapegoating of Jews as evil conspirators. And if congruence with key elements of fascism is not alone persuasive, consider that members of the Nation of Islam have at times cooperated with white U.S. fascists around a shared interest in racial separatism and racial nationalism… dangerous… are the themes of authoritarianism and racial nationalism which underlie racial organicism. Reed warns that “because of his organization and ideology, however, Farrakhan more than his predecessors throws into relief the dangerous, fascistic presumptions inscribed at the foundation of that model.”

ADVOCATING GENOCIDE

Khalid Abdul Muhammad

In recent years, the words and deeds of Khalid Abdul Muhammad have been the focus of increasing public attention. A former national spokesman for the Nation of Islam (NOI), Muhammad’s outspoken rhetoric is exceedingly confrontational. His supporters seem to view his hateful diatribes as expressions of rage that traditional Black leaders are unable or unwilling to deliver; however, his numerous appearances at universities and rallies have proven to be little more than a platform for his virulent anti-Semitism and racism.


By 1985, Muhammad had become one of Minister Louis Farrakhan’s most trusted advisors in the Nation of Islam. He accompanied Farrakhan on fund-raising trips to Libya, where he became well acquainted with Muammar el-Qaddafi. Muhammad’s dedication to Farrakhan and to the racist message of the NOI eventually secured him the title of national spokesman.


The start of Muhammad’s notoriety was marked by a speech at New Jersey’s Kean College in November 1993. He referred to Jews as “bloodsuckers,” called for the genocide of white people, and demeaned both Pope John Paul II and homosexuals.

(3 Years to) MUSLIMS’ FACSIST GANG ATTACK ON ILAN HALIMI – QURANIC TORTURE

February 23, 2009

(3 Years to) MUSLIMS’ FACSIST GANG ATTACK ON ILAN HALIMI – QURANIC TORTURE

MUSLIMS’ FACSIST GANG ATTACK ON ILAN HALIMI

The Shocking unimaginable Torture for weeks (to the sound of reciting the Quran…) and murder by a gang of (about) 30 Muslims called the “Barbarians” [with additional “drop in” Muslim friends that happily participated in the torture] of the young french Jew Ilan Halimi (seduced by a Muslim prostitute sent by the gang to get into a trap).

   

   

The grisly murder of Ilan Halimi should concern the entire Jewish world.
 
The highest echelons of the French government — led by President Jacques Chirac and Premier Dominique DeVillepin — went out of their way Thursday night to express sympathy and solidarity with their country’s Jews, following the torture and murder of Ilan Halimi. Their attendance of memorial services at Paris’s Victoire Synagogue for the 23-year-old victim constituted the most unequivocal and authoritative admission that Halimi fell prey to a horrid hate crime.
 
The knee-jerk inclination of French officialdom, however, was refusal to categorize this as an anti-Semitic homicide. Initially there even was reluctance to note the Jewish identity of the victim.
 
The discovery of the dying Halimi near rail tracks in the Paris suburb of St. Genevieve on February 13 sent shock waves throughout France. The cell phone salesman was found handcuffed, gagged, battered, slashed and with burns over most of his naked body. He had obviously been tortured to death.
 
The interrogation of the since-apprehended gang, which abducted and then for three weeks held Halimi for ransom — before, as French police report, dousing him with flammable liquid and setting him alight — indicated that greed wasn’t the sole motive.
 
A pretty young woman lured Halimi from the store in which he was employed. He was kept naked, bound and hooded, subjected throughout to gruesome torments. The kidnappers, who demanded ransom, were told that the family was far from wealthy. They replied that funds be elicited “from the synagogue,” because “all Jews are rich.” The French-Arab and African-Muslim ringleaders also recited verses from the Koran in their communications with the family.
 
French interior minister Nicolas Sarkozy confirmed that the perpetrators “were convinced that ‘Jews have money’… That’s called anti-Semitism by conflation.” He added that four of six persons the same gang attempted to capture were also Jews.
 
Sarkozy revealed that some suspects possessed extreme Islamic and pro-Palestinian literature and documents. What they confessed to the police further confirmed the apprehension that Halimi was subjected to barbaric abuse because he was a Jew.
 
The grisly attack came at a time in which some French higher-ups boasted that they had beaten back the anti-Semitic tide that accompanied the 2000 intifada. Indeed the French government oversaw a dramatic drop in anti-Jewish incidents. Reportedly the number of anti-Semitic assaults in France for 2005 is 47% below that of 2004. In this respect the French approach and record is better than that of other European states.
 
But this clearly isn’t the whole story. Physical attacks are only one expression of the distress experienced by French Jews, many of whom live in close proximity to Muslim immigrants (estimated at 12% of the population). Jewish children in public schools are frequently bullied by Arab classmates. It’s almost impossible to teach the Holocaust in schools with large Arab/Muslim student bodies.
 
In certain urban French neighborhoods it’s risky for Jews to wear skullcaps. Many French Muslims regard local Jews, their houses of worship and communal institutions fair game in their attempts to wreak vengeance on Israel. This indeed is something for Israelis to ponder. The Jewish state’s enemies often consider all Jews legitimate targets, as the 1994 blast in Buenos Aires’s AMIA Jewish Community Center (which claimed 86 lives) demonstrated on a tragic scale.
 
France was late in combating the “collective punishment” meted by some Muslims on their Jewish neighbors. It first turned a blind eye to numerous anti-Semitic outbreaks, insisting that “there is no anti-Semitism in France.” Jews were essentially requested not to bother the authorities.
 
Official downplaying of rampant anti-Semitism between 2000-2003 left deep emotional scars in the Jewish community. The Halimi murder and the initial disinclination to treat it as a hate crime reopened many old wounds. DeVillepin promised “the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth” about the crime that alarmed France’s Jews. He will have to convince them, but not only them.
 
Anti-Semitism in Paris isn’t just an internal French matter. It should concern all of us in the Jewish state. We mustn’t be wary of speaking up lest we offend French sensibilities. Ariel Sharon didn’t shrink a few years back from calling on French Jews to make aliya. Our government’s concern over the Halimi murder should be conveyed directly to the French government at the highest levels, and our solidarity more emphatically shown with the embattled French Jewish community.

The Murder of Ilan Halimi
Tuesday, March 07, 2006
…Little by little, information emerged about the crime. There were at least fifteen thugs, maybe more. They had used a girl to seduce Halimi into the trap where he was captured. They knew he was a Jew and they had chosen him for that reason. In his pocket they found the phone number of a rabbi and he was the first person they called, telling him: “We have a Jew. The family has to pay. If the family cannot pay, it will be the synagogue.” In succeeding days, they called the rabbi again, howling sentences full of hatred. Later, they called the family, asking for $600,000, before lowering the price to $5,000. They spoke to the mother, to Halimi’s sisters, uncle, and father. When they were not asking for money, they were reciting suras from the Quran. In some of the conversations it was possible to hear Halimi screaming in the background. The thugs sent a videotape showing the young man naked, humiliated, handcuffed, just like on a Zarqawi videos from Iraq. ..
During the last ten weeks, the people who tortured and killed Ilan Halimi had tried unsuccessfully to kidnap four other Jews..
http://frontpagemag.com/Articles/Read.aspx?GUID=609AC68E-E190-4749-A7E8-CF30DF89AF58

Barbarians seemed an appropriate name. The shocking cruelty inflicted on Halimi seemed to have little to do with efforts to extract money from his anguished family. It evoked the sadistic moral universe of A Clockwork Orange, the novel by Anthony Burgess, with a dose of anti-semitism thrown in.
Thanks to Yalda’s charms, Halimi was imprisoned and tortured with acid and cigarette burns for more than three weeks in the heart of a council estate.
More than 30 neighbours in the building knew what was happening but said nothing about the crime, part of a worrying wave of attacks against Jews all over the country.
Besides Yalda, several women have been arrested in an investigation into their role in botched efforts to lure other Jewish men into “honey traps”.

“He wanted a Jew,” a girl called Audrey told police, referring to Youssouf Fofana, the charismatic leader of the Barbarians, who was listed by the girls in their telephone directories as “Youssouf the barbarian”.
His choice of victims was based on two anti-semitic myths: that Jews are all rich and that they stick together. “They’re a big community,” Fofana told Audrey. “United and willing to pay.”

The murder of Ilan Halimi-Commentary
by Melanie Philips February 24, 2006

As if the kidnap, torture and murder of Ilan Halimi near Paris wasn’t bad enough, the way it has been dealt with and reported has graphically illustrated what can only be described as a pathological refusal within Europe to acknowledge the fact that French Jews are being attacked and murdered by Muslims in a kind of rolling pogrom. Ilan Halami was a Jew. He was… kidnapped and murdered because he was singled out as a Jew for this fate. A number of recent kidnappings have taken place of which the vast majority of victims have been Jews and their kidnappers Muslims. As Nidra Poller has reported in the Wall Street Journal [http://online.wsj.com/article/SB114064452021880485.html]:

the gang phoned the family on several occasions and made them listen to the recitation of verses from the Quran, while Ilan’s tortured screams could be heard in the background. The family has publicly criticized the police for deliberately ignoring the explicit anti-Semitic motives, which were repeatedly expressed and should have dictated an entirely different approach to the case from the start. Police searches have now revealed the presence of Islamist literature in the home of at least one of the gang members. The highest echelons of the French government are now preoccupied with the murder of Ilan Halimi. Paris is well aware that the case threatens France’s international reputation, but far more than that is at stake. Once again, as in the suburban riots of 2005, the country is forced to come face to face with the criminalized, alienated and racist Muslim youth and their adult enablers in its midst. Prime Minister Dominique de Villepin declared, in a long speech delivered at the annual dinner of the CRIF, that this heinous crime was anti-Semitic, and that anti-Semitism is not acceptable in France
http://www.israpundit.com/2006/?p=236

according to reports in the French press, some of the suspects in police custody said that they tortured Ilan with particular cruelty simply because he was Jewish.
No longer able to deny or play down the racial motive, the investigation is entering a new phase. One of the most troubling aspects of this affair is the probable involvement of relatives and neighbors, beyond the immediate circle of the gang, who were told about the Jewish hostage and dropped in to participate in the torture.
Ilan’s uncle Rafi Halimi told reporters that the gang phoned the family on several occasions and made them listen to the recitation of verses from the Koran, while Ilan’s tortured screams could be heard in the background. The family has publicly criticized the police for deliberately ignoring the explicit anti-Semitic motives, which were repeatedly expressed and should have dictated an entirely different approach to the case from the start. Police searches have now revealed the presence of Islamist literature in the home of at least one of the gang members.

The story of Ilan Halimi’s murder at the hands of a terrorist gang of French Muslims brings to the surface the various pathologies now converging to make the prospect of annihilating all Jews seem possible to our enemies. First, there are the murderers who took such apparent pleasure and felt such pride in the fact that for 20 days they tortured their Jewish hostage to death.
This makes sense. Anti-Semitism in the Muslim dominated suburbs of Paris and other French cities is all-encompassing. As Nidra Poller related in Thursday’s Wall Street Journal, “One of the most troubling aspects of this affair is the probable involvement of relatives and neighbors, beyond the immediate circle of the gang [of kidnappers], who were told about the Jewish hostage and dropped in to participate in the torture.”
It appears that Ilan Halimi’s murderers had some connection to Hamas. Tuesday, French Interior Minister Nicolas Sarkozy said that police found propaganda published by the Palestinian Charity Committee or the CBSP at the home of one of the suspects. The European Jewish Press reported this week that Israel has alleged that the organization is a front group for Palestinian terrorists and that in August 2003 the US government froze the organization’s US bank accounts, accusing it of links with Hamas.

A Follow-up attack?

Jewish teen tortured in French town where Ilan Halimi was killed
06/03/2008
The incident of brutal abuse began at 10 A.M. on February 22. Mathieu Roumi, 19, whose father is Jewish, was strolling through his neighborhood in the Paris suburb of Bagneux, which has been the site of violent riots by immigrants in the past two years. The suburb became notorious as the scene of Ilan Halimi’s 2006 murder, which horrified France.
…after which they beat him and, with the help of a third friend, dragged him to a dark basement. The three assailants were joined by three other youths, all neighborhood residents and neighbors of Roumi.
For two hours the attackers tortured the young man. One shoved cigarette butts into his mouth, another took issue with Roumi’s Jewish origin, grabbed correction fluid and scrawled “dirty Jew” on his forehead. The six men proceeded to scream at him and threaten that he would die the way Halimi did.
They identified themselves as members of the “Barbarians,” the same gang that kidnapped Halimi from his store, demanded ransom for his release, and when that was not forthcoming, tortured the 23-year-old over the course of three weeks. Moments after he was dumped on the street, Halimi died. …
“We admire Youssouf Fofana!” they shouted at him, referring to the leader of the gang that murdered Halimi. Fofana and 29 other suspects are on trial for abduction, torture and murder. If convicted, they can expect a life sentence.
…the six assailants were arrested. Most are in their 20s, two come from Muslim homes
