  • VIDEO: The Speech the LA Jewish Federation feared you would hear, Pamela Geller at ZOA, Western

    Listen for yourself, and then consider that one of America's largest Jewish organizations banned this speech and enforced the blasphemy laws under the sharia. That defines the modern dhimmi Jew. Regrettably, the introduction by the esteemed Paul Schee was not caught on the video. It was wonderful. BTW, my reference to the toilets in Afghanistan at the beginning of my talk was referring to a quip Schnee made just before he brought me on.

    Fighting Self-Hating Jews By Ari Bussel A local activist in Orange County has been fighting a large organization. The organization is Jewish and it supports an initiative to send students, Jewish and others, to Israel. Thus far, the idea is fantastic. For instance, the program “Birthright,” started by philanthropist Bronfman and now an official endeavor of the Israeli government, sends young Jews to Israel to get to know the country. They return after a short stay, an all-expense paid trip, turned into Israel’s best ambassadors. They, who never saw the Jewish state, experience it first hand—from its modern façade to...

    Jews Speaking Civilly to One Another? by Norma Zager “Who hates the Jews more than the Jew?” Henry Miller The other night I attended a Jewish Federation event about how Jewish people can learn to have a peaceful discourse about Israel and agree to disagree in a friendly manner. This was apparently necessary because the subject has grown to such aggressive proportions, Jews, who never had the capacity to get along anyway, are actually threatening the very health and welfare of the Jewish State. Why am I not shocked to learn that Jewish people engage in vicious self-destructive behavior, even...

    Note: Audio included at link. SEATTLE -- As the second trial of Jewish Federation shooter Naveed Haq continued, jurors heard Haq describe the violent rampage in a series of phone calls. In court Wednesday, jurors listened to 10 different recorded calls Haq made from jail to his parents in the Tri-cities in the days after the shootings. During the calls, Haq bragged of being a celebrity and said he was motivated by a desire to be a Muslim martyr, something that seemed to surprise his parents. Mother: I'm just afraid to tell you, you are not feeling well -- your...

Jail phone calls, claims of jihad at issue as trial approaches" by Levi Pulkkinen SNIPPET: "The jail calls, Haq's attorneys contend, show Haq making "nonsense claims that he wanted to be a martyr, that he was a jihadi, and that his parents should be proud of him."" SNIPPET: "In a search of Haq's homes in the Tri-Cities, Seattle police recovered a prayer written by Haq four days before the shooting. In it, Haq apparently complained that supporters of Israel had hijacked American foreign policy and expressed concerns that American-made weapons were...

    Pentagon Makes Fighting Extremism Top Priority Seven years after the Sept. 11 attacks, the Pentagon on Thursday officially named "the long war" against global extremism as its top priority and pledged to avert any conventional military threat from China or Russia through dialogue. The Defense Department, in a new national defense strategy, also emphasized the need to subordinate military operations to "soft power" initiatives to undermine Islamist militancy by promoting economic, political and social development in vulnerable corners of the world. Defense Secretary Robert Gates said he hoped the change would help establish permanent institutional support for counterinsurgency skills...

    The Hunt for American al Qaeda The United States is turning up the heat in the hunt for the California boy turned al Qaeda operative, Adam Gadahn, who has been charged with treason and is believed to be hiding in Afghanistan. If caught and convicted, Gadahn could face the death penalty. The State Department along with the Department of Diplomatic Security announced the beginning of a publicity campaign in Afghanistan urging locals to provide any information on Gadahn's whereabouts, with a reward if the information leads to his capture. Radio advertisements with information concerning the $1 million reward have...

    A mistrial has been declared in the trial of Jewish Federation gunman Naveed Haq. Superior Court Judge Paris Kallas declared the mistrial moments ago after jurors told her they were hopelessly deadlocked on 14 of 15 counts against Haq, 32. On the only count the jury agreed on, it found Haq not guilty of one of five attempted murder charges he faced. That count had to do with the shooting of federation employee Carol Goldman, one of five women wounded by the gunman. Haq showed no emotion when the mistrial was declared. Prosecutors immediately announced they would seek to retry...

    U.S. Wary Of Small Boat Terrorism As boating season approaches, the Bush administration wants to enlist America's 80 million recreational boaters to help reduce the chances that a small boat could deliver a nuclear or radiological bomb somewhere along the 95,000 miles of U.S. coastline and inland waterways. According to an April 23 intelligence assessment obtained by The Associated Press, "The use of a small boat as a weapon is likely to remain al Qaeda's weapon of choice in the maritime environment, given its ease in arming and deploying, low cost, and record of success." While the United States...

    A woman who was shot in the arm when she tried to protect her unborn child during a deadly shooting rampage at a Jewish center this summer has given birth to a healthy baby boy, her spokesman said. Dayna Klein, 37, who was 17 weeks pregnant at the time of the shooting, gave birth to Charley Paz Klein on Tuesday in a Seattle hospital. His middle name, which means peace, was chosen in memory of Pamela Waechter, who died in the July 28 shooting, said Klein's spokesman Howard Bragman on Wednesday. Four other women were injured when a man stormed...

    Media Downplay Seattle Terror Attack by Joel Mowbray Posted Aug 10, 2006  Hiding behind potted plants, Naveed Haq laid in wait for a 14-year-old girl he could use as a hostage. With a gun in her back, he pushed his way past security and through the door. He coldly, deliberately shot six women. When a wounded Pamela Waechter tried to flee up some stairs, he followed her, leaned over a railing and killed her. Are these the actions of a crazy person? A crazy person might cause harm to himself, maybe even someone close to him. Haq, though, did...

    Local Muslim leader reluctantly expresses sympathy over terrorist attack at Jewish Federation Regarding the recent terrorist attack at the Seattle Jewish Federation by a Muslim man motivated by anger with Israel, a leader of a local Muslim organization sent this letter to the Jewish Transcript (published August 4, 2006). I'm underwhelmed. It is with deep sorrow that we note the one dead and five injured people in the mindless act of cruelty by a hate-filled man. Our hearts go out in sympathy to the injured and to the families of victims.  We struggled for some time about whether a...

    RICHLAND -- Naveed Haq, now widely portrayed as a Muslim American so angry at Israel that he shot up a Jewish charity in Seattle, had recently converted to Christianity. His conversion is perhaps the most startling contradiction in a puzzling life. He had a degree in electrical engineering and was the son of a successful engineer. But he couldn't hold a job and recently worked as a security guard and retail clerk in the Seattle area. His father was a founding member of the Islamic center here. But the son was rarely seen at a local mosque for more than...

    RICHLAND -- Those who knew Naveed Haq said Saturday that to them he was an enigma, a puzzle that they wish they could have solved before his deadly rampage in a Seattle Jewish center. (snip) He held a degree in electrical engineering and was the son of a successful engineer, yet he couldn't keep a regular job. He was smart, creative and skilled as a writer. He recently won an essay contest for a U.S. Institute of Peace scholarship. Yet Haq was frustrated at his lack of friends and female companionship.He told friends he felt alienated from his own family,...

    The honor of hosting Vice President Dick Cheney for an "important Middle East policy address" put a local Jewish federation on a collision course with Democrats who wonder why the nonpartisan group would welcome such a blatantly political event. U.S. Reps. Robert Wexler and Alcee Hastings on Tuesday questioned the purpose of Cheney's scheduled appearance Friday at the Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County, which was organized by the Bush-Cheney reelection campaign. "Everyone knows how important Florida is to the upcoming election and everyone knows how important the Jewish vote is in the upcoming election," said Fred Turner, a...
