    A rabbi was attacked over the weekend in Vienna, Austria, by local soccer fans. According to local media reports, the fans, who were on their way to a game, met Rabbi Schlomo Hoffmeister and screamed at him, “Move, Jew - Jews out, Heil Hitler.” According to the rabbi, they also saluted with the Nazi salute. Rabbi Hoffmeister claimed that police officers standing nearby refused to intervene. When he asked for their help, they reportedly replied, “It’s just soccer.” Local police later said they will investigate the claims and will work to catch both the police officers and the fans who...

    Islamic Jew hatred. it's holy, it's in the quran. The leader of the Muslim world aligned with Hitler and lived in the lap of luxury (on Hitler's dime) in Berlin from the ages of 1941 to 1945. There he, among other evil actions, made bloodthirsty weekly radio addresses to the Muslim world and axis powers inciting genocide against the Jewish people citing quran chapter and verse. The Mufti al-Husseini was responsible for the death of 400,000 Jewish women and Jewish children at Auschwitz. Alas, some things never change.

    Germany did not even make a “minimal effort” to save the lives of 11 Israeli athletes massacred by Arab terrorists at the 1972 Olympics in Munich, according to Israeli government archives that were opened up after 40 years. The documents include statement by then-Mossad director Tzvi Zamir, who returned from Munich after the massacre and told Prime Minister Golda Meir and senior ministers of apathy and lack of professionalism displayed by German authorities. “They didn't make even a minimal effort to save lives, didn't take even a minimal risk to save people, neither theirs nor ours, Zamir said, adding that...

    Michigan State Jewish student attacked at party, knocked unconscious; ADL "horrified by violent assault." A Jewish student at Michigan State University said he was attacked at an off-campus party in what he is calling a hate crime. Just before the assault, which broke his jaw, Zach Tennen said his attackers asked him if he was Jewish, according to reports. Tennen, 19, a resident of suburban Detroit, said he answered in the affirmative. He told WDIV-TV in Detroit that his attackers also "were making Nazi and Hitler symbols and they said they were part of the KKK." Tennen was knocked unconscious...

    Fearing additional attack on German soil, Germany offered Black September political upgrade of PLO, 'Der Spiegel' reports. BERLIN – For years, Germany’s government had contact with the organizers of the Black September terror group that was responsible for the murder of 11 Israeli sportsmen and a German police office at the 1972 Olympic Games, German newspaper Der Spiegel reported Sunday. Several months after the murders, the West German government proposed a secret meeting between one of the organizers of the Palestinian terrorist group and then-foreign minister Walter Scheel. The aim of the clandestine meeting was to create a “new basis...

    This week a German doctor in Bavaria filed a criminal complaint against Rabbi David Goldberg. Rabbi Goldberg’s “crime”? He performs ritual circumcisions on Jewish male infants in accordance with Jewish law. The doctor’s complaint came shortly after a ruling by a court in Cologne outlawing the practice of male circumcision. The Austrians and the Swiss also took the ruling to heart and have banned infant male circumcision in several hospitals in Switzerland as well as in the Austrian state of Vorarlberg. Denmark and Scandinavian governments are also considering limiting the practice of circumcision which has constituted one of the foundational...

    <p>The CEO, president, and "part-owner" of the Shangri-La, a "chic hotel in Santa Monica," one Tehmina Adaya, a Muslim, now claims to have, "condemned anti-Semitism and declared her support for Israel." Hmmm... That's strange. In July 2010, she belched out, "Get the [expletive] Jews out of the hotel." The expletive was the word "fucking." Back then, her vulgar, hateful words were aimed at a group of pro-Israel young people, many of them Jews, members of the Friends of the Israel Defense Forces (FIDF) -- surprise, surprise. Why now Adaya's sudden admiration for Jews and Israel?</p>

    BERLIN - In the debate in Germany over circumcision, you often hear people say jokingly that if cutting the foreskin off a baby boy’s penis for religious reasons is outlawed then piercing little girls’ earlobes shouldn’t be allowed either. But that’s just the scenario that may be shaping up. After a Cologne court ruled in June that circumcision was illegal, a Berlin judge is examining whether or not ear-piercing should be as well. The issue has come up in conjunction with a suit against a tattoo studio by the parents of a three-year-old girl whose ears were pierced at the...

    A prominent Arab-American supporter of Democratic Representative Bill Pascrell has attacked his opponent, Republican challenger Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, in starkly religious terms after Boteach's super PAC, Patriot Prosperity, received $500,000 from casino mogul Sheldon Adelson and his wife Miriam. Adelson has been the target of attacks from the Obama campaign and the Democratic Party throughout the 2012 election cycle, some of which have had religious undertones. Pascrell supporter Dr. Aref Assaf (above), president of the American Arab Forum, has taken that further, declaring that Boteach had "sold his soul" and accusing him of "Islamophobia." The explicitly religious nature of Dr....

    For the umpteenth time, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Friday publicly declared that the primary foreign policy goal of his government is to see the Jewish state erased from the map of the Middle East. "The Zionist regime [is] a cancerous tumor," Ahmadinejad told millions who took to the streets of Tehran to mark Iran's Quds Day, an angry commemoration of Israel's sovereignty over Jerusalem. The Iranian leader continued: "Even if one cell of them is left in one inch of (Palestinian) land, in the future this story (of Israel’s existence) will repeat. The nations of the region will soon...

    A new report by Britain’s Department for Education and Skills notes that an increasing number of schools are dropping the teaching of the Holocaust from history lessons to avoid offending Muslim students. The report, titled Teaching Emotive and Controversial History, also observes that many teachers are reluctant to discuss the Crusades because the lessons frequently contradict what is taught in local mosques... 30 non-Muslim children at an elementary school in Scotland were required to visit a mosque in Glasgow, where they were instructed to recite the shahada, the Islam declaration of faith, which states, “There is no god but Allah...

    Egypt's Islamist president has given himself the right to legislate and control over the drafting of a new constitution. He has installed at the top of the powerful military a defense minister likely to be beholden to him. Under Mohammed Morsi's authority, officials have moved to silence influential critics in the media. And though a civilian, he declared himself in charge of military operations against militants in the Sinai peninsula. Over the weekend, Morsi ordered the retirement of the defense minister and chief of staff and reclaimed key powers the military seized from him days before he took office on...

    Ombudsman for children's rights proposes that Jews and Muslims replace male circumcision with a symbolic, nonsurgical ritual. THE HAGUE - Norway’s ombudsman for children's rights has proposed that Jews and Muslim replace male circumcision with a symbolic, nonsurgical ritual. Dr. Anne Lindboe told the newspaper Vart Land last month that circumcision in boys was a violation of a person’s right to decide over his own body. “Muslim and Jewish children are entitled to the same protection as all other children,“ she said. She added that the practice caused unnecessary pain and was medically unbeneficial. Lindboe, a pediatrician, was appointed ombudsman...
