At 2:30 A.M., Jews Blast Shema Prayer at Muslim Neighborhood
Arutz Sheva ^ | 27/7/14 | Gil Ronen

Posted on 07/27/2014 3:19:06 PM PDT by Eleutheria5

Armed with loudspeakers, they blasted the “Shema” incantation (from the 'Hear O Israel' prayer) in the direction of the Muslim Arab neighborhood of Tzur Baher. They reportedly did so at about 2:30 a.m.

Video of the Jewish counterattack garnered enthusiastic reactions on Facebook.

Jews all over Israel find themselves routinely harassed by noise pollution from Muslim neighborhoods in recent years. This less-known “intifada” by Arabs involves fitting loudspeakers on minarets in mosques – which for centuries made do with unamplified muezzin calls for prayer.

The Jerusalem Municipality reportedly embarked on a process to investigate and limit the noise pollution by local mosques, in January. According to the move, initiated by nationalist Councilman Aryeh King, the prayer call of 200 mosques in the eastern part of Jerusalem will be measured to see if the decibel level violates the law.

King made the fight against Muslim noise pollution a priority when he was elected last November. At the time he stated "just like it's forbidden for us (Jews) to make loud noises after 12 at night it will be forbidden for them."

200,000 shekels have reportedly been allocated for the pilot program, in which the volume of the prayer calls emanating from two mosques in the south of the city will be measured. Mosques that disturb the public peace with their amplified prayer call will be put on a "black list" by the city.

Mosques on the list will be ordered to turn their loudspeakers to face the center of the Arab neighborhoods and villages, to try and prevent disturbances to the rest of the city. ....

I've always favored blasting "There Can Be Miracles" in Hebrew:

to counter it, and at the exact same time as the calls to Muslim prayers. We could just call it an accompaniment for the Muazzin. But Shema is better.

And of course the world MSM will call it outrages. Deplorable. Have the Jews no respect for Islam?

You can hear them in the Old City every morning, coming in from Jaffe Gate. They sound real pretty. So why not give the Muslims rising to prayer at 4 am the same benefit?

Idea: Ever time the Muzzies start blasting out their call to prayer, drown it out with Christian church bells, air raid sirens, or “Havah Nagilah” [Hebrew: “Let Us Rejoice”]. Psychological warfare doesn't directly hurt the bloody butchers of Hamas, but it certainly can make them nuts and place themselves where the IDF can kill them more efficiently.

“How about, “I kissed a goat and I liked it!”.”

A literture search will indicate the abundance of data showing kissing the goat is just the beginning of Muslim/goat relating.

I’m all in favor of the Shema at 2:30AM, but it needs to be followed up with this song from the Israeli group, Subliminal blasted into the ears of every Muzzie.

Listening to that little f@#$ again could break me, too. Towards the end of his life, he became a Moose Limb, and did another track about it. That was presumably after he stopped sword fighting with young boys, if he ever did.

Hindus are welcome to join in, too. It could be a world-wide movement called Rock the Minaret. Everyone could just play whatever counter-noise appeals to them, loud and clear.

I would reccomend an Isreali tunnel armed with a speaker at 140 decibles playing "Amazing Grace" on Scottish bagpipes
followed up by the coronet playing the 'Cavalry Charge' (played at most hockey games)
every hour during the night from 10 pM to 5 AM

If that step isn’t enough, a technological solution will be installed to screen and reduce the noise dramatically....Better yet 60 pounds of c-4 would reduce the noise exponentialy after the first six seconds.```````````````````

“Studies have shown that kissing is a goatway drug?”

Questionable studies, those. Same for studies correlating perversions with Democratic Party affiliation. Correlation is not causation - generally speaking.

However, in the case of Democrats, asking which came first, the Democrat or the donkey - the answer must be “What difference does it make?”

Gregorian chant. Buddhist monks. Bach’s “Toccatta and fugue in D minor”. Peter Framptons “do you feel like I do?”- the 17 minute long live version. Iron butterflies “innagoddadavidah”. Anything by Yoko Ono. Slim Whitman (hey, it works on aliens). William Shatner singing “tambourine man”. “Jingle bells”- performed by barking dogs. The soundtrack to Disneys “it’s a small world”(although this one may violate the Geneva Convention). Morrisseys “girlfriend in a coma”. The New Christy Minstrels. Paul Anka’s “havin’ my baby”.
“Seasons in the sun” by Terry Jacks. Anything by Leif Garrett. The Chicken Dance. “Julie, do you love me?” by Bobby Sherman. “Space Oddity” by David Bowie.

I can’t wait for the following accompaniment to the ‘Shema’,
the broadcast blowing of the shofar.

The IDF cannot very well march completely around Gaza, but they can do their best!

Gaza needs to be completely Israeli territory, as it was, a few years back, when they took it, the first time, before the ‘land for peace’ idiots got into the mess.

Pax Carthage for “Palestinians”.

The Moslems use a recording for the early call to prayer. My brother and his unit in the IDF once scaled the mineral and replaced it with some heavy metal. They were less than pleased. :>)

AC/DC has 2 that are particularly appropriate: “Hell’s Bells” and “ Highway to Hell.”

Deep Purple’s “Smoke on the Water” wouldn’t be bad, either.

Of course, one could always revert to simply playing The Beatles “Revolution” on a continuous loop. I believe that they’ll go nuts with that one after no more than 4 or 5 repetitions...and don’t ask me how I know, just trust me on that.
