The attack by two Palestinian terrorists from the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) early today at 7:00AM Israel Standard Time at the Kehillat Yaakov synagogue in Jerusalem sent a shock wave through Israel and the Jewish diaspora.
The perpetrators shot and slaughtered four rabbis; three Americans and one Briton, dual citizens,six other worshipers were wounded at early morning minyan prayers CNN reported
The four killed were all rabbis: Avraham Shmuel Goldberg, 58; Aryeh Kopinsky, 43; Moshe Twersky, 59; and Calman Levine. Goldberg was a dual British-Israeli citizen, and the other three were U.S.-Israeli citizens — which is why the FBI is investigating the attack, according to a U.S. law enforcement official.
An arm of a Jewish worshipper wrapped in tefillin (phylacteries) was chopped off by one of the two assailants. Blood according to one of the eyewitnesses was splattered over the pews, prayer books and prayer shawls or tallit of the dead and wounded. Continue reading
BREAKING STORY: August 29, 2014 4:10 pm EDT According to a confidential and highly reliable source, Commanding General of the 1st Armored Division and Fort Bliss, Major General Stephen M. Twitty, has been briefed today by the CIA, on a credible threat against the US by ISIS. Based on intelligence from chatter and other sources, an attack along our southern border by ISIS may be imminent. The nature of the attack may be a large truck bomb or the access may lead to another type of major event.
Further information revealed by Judicial Watch indicates that the attack may emanate from the border city of Ciudad Juarez in Mexico, across the border from El Paso, where terrorist groups, including ISIS, have been very active. This report flies in the face of Friday’s statement by White House spokesman Josh Earnest that “There is no evidence or indication right now that ISIL (ISIS) is actively plotting to attack the United States homeland.”
Editor’s Comment: We have been warning our readers for some time that ISIS has openly targeted America and already has agents here in the US. We do not have the luxury of adopting the White House’s laid back approach to this clear and present danger. We cannot wait until after a terrorist attack to wring our hands and say, “If only we had known!” We do know and the time to prepare is now. Another 9/12/2001 would be unforgivable. Mr. President, are you listening?
Senior level people in the Obama administration seem to think that ISIS is some kind of joke, a low level group with grandiose goals and little means of achieving them. So while ISIS has continued to shore up its power-base and train its terrorists for global warfare, the President completed his vacation and continues his round of fund-raisers. The President and his appointed advisers continue to demonstrate their ignorance and incompetence when confronted by real world terrorists who have, under their noses, evolved into savages at war with civilization. The urgency that is now required to address the real and present danger represented by ISIS to the United States seems to be low on the list of Obama’s priorities. Continue reading
Israelis face growing concern as the barrage of rockets from Gaza increases, putting more of Israel under threat than ever before. Today, anywhere in Israel, Israelis have a maximum of three minutes to find shelter, but in the areas close to Gaza, they have only seconds, not minutes. Reports that rockets from Gaza can now reach Tel Aviv are now being taken very seriously and Israel is responding in kind. Continue reading
What is hailed by ISIS jihadis as a victory for Islam, is a road to hell for those Muslims who don’t share their passion for their barbaric ideology. ISIS soldiers have shown themselves to be obscenely vicious and bloodthirsty to those in the cities they have captured. We saw it first in Syria, where Christians were targeted for rape, torture, beheadings, and crucifixions, but where Muslims were also victims of their greed and blood-lust. The following is just one account of the horror that they brought to the Muslims in Mosul, Iraq. ISIS fighters are now helping themselves to unmarried girls for mandated “jihad sex”. Continue reading
The United States condemns in the strongest possible terms this senseless act of terror against innocent youth. [BUT] I also urge all parties to refrain from steps that could further destabilize the situation. Continue reading
