Jew Beaten to Death with Hammer in Morocco
Arutz Sheva ^ | 26/3/12 | Chana Yaar

Posted on 03/26/2012 4:37:07 PM PDT by Eleutheria5

n elderly Jewish man was murdered by an unknown attacker with a hammer Monday in the city of Fez.

The 74-year-old victim, whose name has not yet been released, worked in property management for rentals owned by other Jews.

According to reports in Moroccan media, the elderly victim was seen being hit repeatedly by a man wielding a hammer.

The murderer fled the scene. Police are investigating to determine whether the attack was nationalist or criminal in nature.

Critically injured, he died as he was being rushed to King Hassan II University Hospital.

Earlier Monday, thousands of demonstrators stormed the parliament building in the capital city of Rabat. The protesters torched Israeli flags and expressed anger at the presence of Israeli envoy David Saranga, who was in the city to attend a meeting of the Euro-Mediterreanean Partnership (EUROMED), in advance of the Global March to Jerusalem set for this Friday, an event scheduled for the Arabs' annual "Land Day" protest.

Saranga, who was expected to remain in the country until nightfall before flying to Brussels, instead was quietly escorted through a side door from the building. He was taken to the airport and immediately boarded a flight for Paris instead.

Hello. You have reached the offices of Sharpton, Mason and Maddox, rabble rousers at large. If you want to contribute money, press 1.

Let me see if I can figure this one out. Muslims hate Jews. Muslim teaching says to kill all Jews (and Christians). A muslim kills a Jew. Gee that seems odd! Why would that happen? Oh wait, I forgot. Muslims are bloodthirsty savages from the 6th century who are mutants. All muslims should be killed before they can kill us. Sorry. Just slipped my mind for a second.

Problem: There are more of them than us. They are better at killing than us, having no qualms of conscience. Thus, your solution is no option.

Whenever they get stirred up, we must kill enough of them that they stop trying to kill us. But that’s no solution. Spinoza says that when there is no solution, there is no problem. Moshiach is the only real solution. Until he comes, we’ll just have to deal, per Spinoza.

“Problem: There are more of them than us.”

That’s a problem the West could address in less than sixty minutes. All’s that lacking is the proper motivation and I suspect that the Muslims will inevitably provide it to us one fine day.

Morocco was by many measures the most sane and “Western” of the arab/muslim nations. There were more Jews in Maroc than in almost any other such nation. The King made a point of having some Jews in leadership positions. It's really sad to see that great nation slip under the veil of sharia.

Picture it: it's like California. It's within 10% of Canada in western-facing ocean coastline, mountains, prime agro area, and population size. Surfing is a huge sport, mostly catering to Europeans who want to catch overhead waves. It could be another California. Too bad to see this. (My next novel will be set in Morocco.)

The police are actually investigating. They did actually take him to a hospital and try to save him. The royal family is still in control. But the entire region is going nuts while the cretins in Washington and the MSM applaud. Morocco will be in the past tense soon.

Be of good cheer, look at the signs and see that He's coming very soon. Until then, I pray for the safety of all Israelis, very especially the settlers of Judea and Samaria. And you, friend, stay safe during the March to Jerusalem. Yes, Moshiach is coming, but things are still going to get a whole lot tougher while we wait for Him.

Meanwhile in Iran:

WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. says Iran should release a pastor who’s been sentenced to death for apostasy.

White House press secretary Jay Carney says 32-year-old Yusuf Naderkhani, who turned to Christianity when he was 19, has done nothing more than stay devoted to his faith.

Carney says Iran’s attempt to force him to renounce that faith “crosses all bounds of decency” and breaches Iran’s international obligations.

The pastor was convicted of apostasy in 2010.

His lawyer says he has appeared before an appeals court over the past four days and expects a ruling on a possible acquittal by week’s end.

It’s all a matter of definitions. Islam is a Religion of Peace. “Peace” as defined by islam occurs when Muslims rule the world and have subjugated/eliminated all non muslims.

So it is perfectly accurate, in that context, to say that Islam is a religion of peace. They are carrying out the instructions of the Koran/Mohammed to the letter.

Just a matter of accepting their own definition. Too bad no one with a microphone/TV show will call them on it.

Morocco has been a relative oasis of peace and peaceful coexistence between Moslems and Jews since the creation of the state of Israel in 1948. Many Moroccan Jews left their country on Operation Magic Carpet for Israel, but many others stayed and prospered.

However, Moslem extremists, including an Al Qaeda affiliate for western Africa, have stoked the fires of the less educated, more fundamentalistic Moslems in Morocco. Just look at how many Morocco extremists have been involved in individual attacks in the US, England, and France, among other countries.

Remember, Moussaioui, the so-called 19th hijacker for 9/11, is a Moroccan, and someone wrote on the internet in an article that Moroccan extremists were among the worst in the world.

I hope that the good people of Morocco, and their King, continue to protect their minority peoples, as they have in the past. They have been among the most humane Moslems in all of Africa and they deserve the praise that they have earned for it.

PS: I have a Moroccan in my wife’s extended family. He was over the house yesterday with his new daughter. And he loves baseball.

Just a general comment to all: Think about it honestly. Think of every instance of the use of the ROP term and the people using it. Bush was trying to avoid Americans from depleting the American rope supply, but also, he is a friend of the Saudis. He KNOWS what Dal ar Islam means - “The peace of Islam”.

When the Palis, Hamas et all say to an American/english speaking audience “We only seek Peace with the Jews, and then say to a Muslim audience “DEATH TO THE INFIDEL!”, they are saying the EXACT SAME THING.

It’s just that most English speakers define ‘peace’ as getting along with the absence of violence. They define it as subjugation/killing of the non muslim.

So every time people ask “how can they claim to want peace with Israel and then rocket.kidnap/bomb them?”, there’s the answer. It’s been right in front of our nose the whole time, plain as day. But people just refuse to believe the words they are being told.

Also, my standard link. A fictional short story by Dan Simmons that no one should miss. Puts the above into crystal clarity.

Indeed, it’s easy to find peace with dead people around, kind of like a crazy soldier in a battle field strewn with deads, feeling strangely strong for being alive and having survived and not them. That’s what their peace means... and then you have their strange medicine or pillage attitudes, necrophiliac, perhaps.

Update. Name released.

Jew aged 73 clubbed to death in Morocco
http://www.debka.com/newsupdatepopup/437/

Binyamin Seriso, 73, was murdered in the Jewish Quarter of Fez, Morocco, by a man wielding a hammer and shouting Allahu Akbar. He escaped the scene. The dead man was a businessman who dealt in real estate.

Sometimes, I feel sick just searching for news item details. A blog devotes one paragraph. On AP, all my search yielded was sporting events. I h8 the MSM.

As a young boy, I read a biography of General Patton. In it, it told how before he landed his army in Morocco, he worried that the Arabs would start a pogrom against the Jews in the absence of order, especially if he had to fight the French.

I thought, “wait a minute - the Arabs are supposed to hate the Jews because of Israel and the Palestinians, but Israel didn’t even exist at that time....”

It started a change in my thinking, even as a kid.

One of Hitler's ideas for implementing the Final Solution, was to ship all of the Jews to Palestine, essentially turning it into one large Concentration Camp, and then letting the Arabs do the Nazis' dirty work for them.

It’s been 11 years since 9/11, a day of infamy that dwarfed Pearl Harbor. There were some stirring speeches, lots of new enlistments, military victories and setbacks, and then everyone got bored and played a new game: Let’s forgive ourselves for once having been racists and elect an ass-clown who happens to be black. Boy was that cathartic, but Obama sucks. Now let’s play a new game. Which ass clown should we elect now?
