"What Europe can learn from Israel in its war against vehicle attacks and lone wolf terror"

The van terror attack in Barcelona follows a similar wave of car rammings in Nice, London, Paris, Berlin, and Stockholm. By Colonel Richard Kemp, Arsen Ostrovsky

Shortly after the horrific terror attack in Barcelona last week, which claimed the lives of 14 people, Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy said terrorism is Europe's main problem "right now".

Similarly, it was not until the London Bridge car ramming in June this year that killed 8 people, that UK Prime Minister Theresa May said "enough is enough". But therein lies the problem.

Jihadists have been waging terror in Europe for years now and 'enough' was enough after the first attack. But European leaders have largely been in denial, only now beginning to concede there is a problem, and even still, many refusing to identify and confront the radical Islam at the root of this war. ...

Map of bomb threats across the USA since Jan 2017VSA en Canada: een golf van reeds meer dan 100 bommeldingen bij Joodse instellingen en centra in meer dan 33 VS staten en 2 Canadese provincies sinds januari 2017 veroorzaakt grote onrust en onveiligheidsgevoel:

"Jewish center bomb threats top 100 since January" - Kids pulled from schools as fears spread

They're supposed to be pillars of unity and peace, where both Jews and non-Jews can enjoy classes, sports and other communal activities. But more than 100 Jewish community centers have turned into targets of hate, subjected to bomb threats as fears of heightened anti-Semitism spread across the country.

The threats have reached such a crescendo that President Donald Trump used his speech to Congress on Tuesday night to address the issue. ...  "This is the first time in the 60-plus years of our organization we have had a bomb threat called in. And now we've had three bomb threats this year," said the CEO of a JCC in the Northeast who wished to remain anonymous for fear of copycats targeting his center. "It's alarming." ...

gevandaliseerde graven in Philadelphia [AP]In Missouri is de grote, 125 jaar oude, Cheset Shel Emeth begraafplaats in University City slachtoffer geworden van een brutale aanval. Meer dan honderd grafstenen werden omgeschopt en zwaar beschadigd. Het gaat met name om graven van voor 1960, dus veelal van overlevenden van de holocaust. Volgens de politie wijst alles erop dat het gaat om een georganiseerde actie, dit kan volgens hen nooit het werk van een enkel individu zijn. Op dit moment worden camerabeelden bestudeerd.

Geëmotioneerde families zijn toegestroomd om te kijken of er graven zijn geschonden van hun dierbaren. De directrice van de begraafplaats, Anita Feigenbaum, heeft al een plan voor het herstel gemaakt. Gelukkig is er sprake van hartverwarmende solidariteit uit diverse hoeken: de lokale islamitische gemeenschap gaf aan graag te willen helpen bij het herstel. De christelijke kerken houden collectes om bij te dragen aan de financiële gevolgen. ...

L'éducation palestinienne à la haine du juif est un paramètre trop rarement pris en compte dans le conflit israelo-palestinien. Un rapport de l'UN Watch aide à mesurer son ampleur

Le renouvellement de générations palestiniennes prêtes à faire la guerre à Israël est un problème dont l'importance est souvent ignorée. Une exception notable existe cependant. Barack Obama, lors des funérailles de Shimon Peres avait adressé cette pique à Abou Mazen présent dans l'assistance : Peres, avait compris, expliquait alors l'ex président américain, « à quel point la paix serait difficile [à atteindre] dans une région où la jeunesse arabe a souvent appris à haïr. »

Un récent rapport d’UN Watch, présenté devant le comité des Affaires étrangères du Congrès américain, en apporte une nouvelle fois la preuve.  ...

Forty years after his reporting exposed one of the worst war criminals in Dutch history, Hans Knoop is still celebrated in his native Netherlands as a hero.

Last year, more than a million television viewers watched a public broadcaster's historical period drama on how Knoop, a Dutch Jewish journalist, unmasked the art collector Pieter Menten in 1976 as a monster who murdered hundreds of Polish Jews and stole their property with help from German Nazis. It was the highest rating for such a production in the Netherlands.

"The Menten Affair" will have its U.S. debut March 5 at the East Bay International Jewish Film Festival. Knoop, 73, will be on hand to introduce the film and answer audience questions. (Video Trailer) ...

Nikki Haley, Amerikaanse VN-ambassadeur [screenshot YouTube]Nikki Haley, Amerikaanse VN-ambassadeur, tijdens haar eerste persconferentie na de maandelijkse vergadering van de Veiligheidsraad van de Verenigde Naties.:

U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley, Feb. 16, 2017:

"I just put out to the members of the Seucrity Council to help me understand: When we have so much going on in the world, why is it that every single month we're going to sit down and have a hearing where all they do is obsess over Israel?"

The first thing I want to do is talk about what we just saw in there. The Security Council just finished its regular monthly meeting on Middle East issues. It’s the first meeting like that that I’ve attended, and I have to say it was a bit strange. The Security Council is supposed to discuss how to maintain international peace and security. But at our meeting on the Middle East, the discussion was not about Hizballah’s illegal build-up of rockets in Lebanon. It was not about the money and weapons Iran provides to terrorists. It was not about how we defeat ISIS. It was not about how we hold Bashar al-Assad accountable for the slaughter of hundreds and thousands of civilians.
No, instead, the meeting focused on criticizing Israel, the one true democracy in the Middle East. I am new around here, but I understand that’s how the Council has operated, month after month, for decades. ...
