No Justice for the Yazidi. Well, maybe a teaspoon’s worth. ‘Do you have feelings? Do you have any honour?’ Powerful moment a brave Yazidi former sex slave confronts the sobbing ISIS rapist who attacked her when she was just 14-years-old while he hangs his head in shame.
However, she revealed last year that her slaver and rapist, Abu Humam, had stopped her in the street in Stuttgart and said he knew where she lived.
Ashwaq said she ‘wanted to leave Germany immediately’ after the encounter and said she ‘felt better staying in a refugee camp’ in Iraq with her father after meeting her slaver.
He is arrested and in Iraqi custody. Germany would send him to a spa for 5 years. So some justice? I doubt it.
Hat tip to Blazing Cat Fur, who notes…
She should have been allowed to kill him.
That doesn’t compute for the Social Justice Warriors in the crowd. Of course the SJWs are not interested in actual justice.
So the media doesn’t seem to interested in reporting the details of this attack. Migrant gang attack on white teenager shocks the Netherlands.
And this isn’t just a story of media bias, it the story of a vicious hate crime.
This past week, the Netherlands watched in horror as a group of migrants in Gorinchem, chased a young white teenager and seriously assaulted him. Videos of the extremely violent scenes were circulating on social media and Twitter exploded with indignation. The term “Gorinchem” trended on Thursday as did “Moroccans”.
If you click thru, most of the original stories are from the Dutch press and in Dutch. And while Google will translate for you, it doesn’t do an especially good job with Dutch. Still, it will translate enough so that you can make out what they are writing about.
It seems that a while back, a Moroccan was attacked by a gang of whites. The media was all over the race of the victim and perpetrators, and even blamed Geert Wilders for the attack. Now that the shoe is on the other foot, “youth” versus “youth” is as detailed as they seem to be able to get. All or nothing. If you want to live with color-blindness, that’s fine, as long as you are consistent. But that is not the media’s modus opererandi. Race is important if you can attack the right people/groups.
It sounds familiar somehow. But wouldn’t the press, UN, and others be up in arms over it? No, Impeachment is more popular. ‘Absolutely No Mercy’: Leaked Files Expose How China Organized Mass Detentions of Muslims.
But then the Media, the West generally were quiet during The Cultural Revolution, which was similarly hard on minority communities in China.
More than 400 pages of internal Chinese documents provide an unprecedented inside look at the crackdown on ethnic minorities in the Xinjiang region.
“Ethnic Minorities,” in this case, is NYSlimes weasel-wording for Uighur Muslims.
So what did these minorities do? They dared to think thoughts that were not approved by the party.
And if anyone dared to ask where their family members had gone…
The guide recommended increasingly firm replies telling the students that their relatives had been “infected” by the “virus” of Islamic radicalism and must be quarantined and cured. Even grandparents and family members who seemed too old to carry out violence could not be spared, officials were directed to say.
But you could substitute “Conservatism” for “Islamic radicalism” and the folks behind Antifa would be happy to unleash the same thing in this country.
Hat tip to The American Conservative, and Instapundit, who says, “I EAGERLY AWAIT COLIN KAEPERNICK AND THE NBA’S FORCEFUL CONDEMNATION OF THIS.” Me? I’m not holding my breath.
Of course he did. Paris prosecutors: Police attack suspect adhered to ‘radical vision of Islam’.
Officials have not officially said there was a terrorist motive behind the attack, but handing a case to anti-terrorism prosecutors usually indicates a terrorism link is the focus of inquiries.
Ricard said his office had taken over the probe because of signs the crime was premeditated, the attacker’s desire to die and the nature of injuries found on at least one of the victims.
So why could they find this out in 2 days after the attack and not anytime in the past 10 years? Oh wait, they DID know. French police minister admits security failings over Paris attack.
On Sunday, Castaner said Harpon had caused alarm among his colleagues as far back as 2015, when he defended the massacre of 12 people at the Charlie Hebdo newspaper by two brothers vowing allegiance to Al-Qaeda.
But even though a police official charged with investigating suspected radicalisation among the force questioned Harpon’s colleagues, none of them wanted to file an official complaint.
They don’t say why no one would file an “official complaint.” Probably because they were afraid of the guy in question, but also afraid of being labeled racist.
So can we chalk this up to “death by Political Correctness?” It isn’t the first time PC has stopped action, and it won’t be the last.
They will accept anyone, as long as you think exactly the way they want you to think. Abortion rights activists try to burn Mexico City cathedral.
This week has been a bit rough, but I don’t remember hearing or reading anything about this. And there seems to be exactly zero mentions in the mainstream media.
Amid a demonstration Saturday urging the legalisation of abortion, activists tried to set fire to the Mexico City Metropolitan Cathedral.
In response to the Sept. 28 arson attempt, Catholics gathered before the front doors of the cathedral.
Police stopped the “protestors” from doing any more acts of terror, and fire department put the fire out. So do rioters on the left ever get called out? And this is the Catholic Herald.
Antisemitic hate crimes continue to be a problem in NYC. Youths Knock Shtreimels Off Jews in Williamsburg.
This article is most interesting (to me anyway) because of the statistics.
At an annual pre-High Holidays briefing at NYPD headquarters last week, Deputy Inspector Mark Molinari said there had been 301 hate crimes reported in the city through mid-September, compared to 217 in the same period of 2018. Of those crimes, 155 have been against Jews, compared with 97 in the comparable period last year.
Over 80% of the anti-Semitic incidents have been property crimes, the vast majority of which included the scrawling of swastikas.
The Lamestream Media hasn’t been giving these crimes much attention because narratives must be preserved.
So when NYPD arrests two African American “youths” [cue accent from My Cousin Vinny] the media isn’t that interested. NYPD Arrests Williamsburg Teens for Assaults on Orthodox Jews.
The two boys, both aged 13, are suspected of being part of a group that threw a metal pipe into the window of Volkan shul on Franklin Ave.
They were also knocking hats off Jewish men and boys. Because civil society is gone.
Oh those kind and tolerant and diverse denizens of New York City. Orthodox Jewish Man Beaten With Belt On Brooklyn Street.
Police said the 45-year-old victim was walking home when he saw two men drinking in front of a synagogue near Avenue J and East 15th Street. They said there was some type of verbal dispute.
That’s when one of the men pushed the victim to the ground, took off his belt and started hitting the man in the face with it over and over again.
After 2 other hate crimes in the week.
Police said there have been nearly 150 anti-Semitic hate crime complaints in the city so far this year. That’s nearly double the number they saw at this time last year. Deutsch said the state needs to come up with stricter hate crime laws with tougher penalties to help hit back at hate.
I had a post ready to go on the normalization of antisemitism on the Left. Farrakhan calls Jews termites, and no one on the Left blinks an eye. David Karpf calls Bret Stephens a bedbug, and it is Stephen’s fault for blowing things out of proportion. And there is an epidemic of antisemitic hate crimes in New York, and you can barely find mention in the media, because the narrative must be preserved. Bill Maher is the only one on the Left calling out the BDS movement, and the media is even trying to ignore him.
“Let me read Omar Barghouti, one of the co-founders of the movement,” Maher added. “His quote: ‘No rational Palestinian … would ever accept a Jewish state in Palestine.’ So that’s where that comes from, this movement, someone who doesn’t even want a Jewish state at all. Somehow this side never gets presented in the American media. It’s very odd.”
Americans are ignorant of History. The Yom Kippur War and the following “Peace Process” that included – more than once – land for peace, which has never resulted in peace.
Am I just not tuned into the channels where the Left and the Media (but I repeat myself) is denouncing this kind of thing? NYPD Hate Crimes Unit Investigating Attack On Jewish Man In Crown Heights With Rock.
When 63-year-old Abraham Gopin exercised in Lincoln Terrace Park Tuesday morning, a woman warned him that a man on a nearby bench wasn’t right.
He was attacked with a “rock” (see below) and the guy jumped on him.
Gopin, who is Jewish and wears a long beard and yarmulke, says the man threw the rocks and then pounced on him like a crazed animal.
Twitter has a look at the “rock” in question.
For a really awful picture of a “person of interest” in the attack, see this link.
Oh, the tolerance of NYC… If a councilman can ask “Is it too dangerous” to be Jewish in NYC, then I think they have a hate problem.
I’m shocked – Shocked! – to discover a Muslim .gov that hate gays. OK, I’m not shocked about that at all. PA bans LGBTQ activities in West Bank.
Oh, and I actually am shocked that this is being covered by the mainstream media, but I think they were mostly backed into a corner on the topic.
The Palestinian Authority banned members of the Palestinian Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer (LGBTQ) community from carrying out any activities in the West Bank.
The ban came after the grassroots group Al-Qaws for Sexual & Gender Diversity in Palestinian Society (Arabic for “the bow”), which engages and supports Palestinians who identify as LGBTQ, was planning to hold a gathering for its members in Nablus at the end of the month.
Not satisfied with banning them, the PA then promised to arrest any of the members they found.
The PA police will chase those behind the LGBTQ group and see to it that they are brought to trial once they are arrested, Zreikat warned. He further appealed to Palestinians to report to the police about any person connected to the group.
Because they can. (Hat tip to The Other McCain – SJWs Silent as Palestinian Government Prohibits LGBT Activism in West Bank.)
Actually, I vote for the guy going to prison being responsible. Brooklyn Man Sentenced for Three Anti-White Attacks in Three Days.
Prosecutors say a Brooklyn man will go to prison for insulting or assaulting three white men in three days, threatening to kill them while shouting anti-white profanities.
One of the 3 has a concussion.
Don’t expect to see much of this story in politics or the media.
Don’t expect this to make an impression on the national press. Man shot outside synagogue near North Miami Beach.
A Jewish Orthodox man was shot outside a synagogue Sunday evening near North Miami Beach.
So why isn’t this a thing in the national media? Not enough victims? Wrong kind of victim?
The mainstream media doesn’t seem to care. As the leading targets of hate crimes, Jews are routinely being attacked in the streets of New York City. So why is no one acting like it’s a big deal?
The increase in the number of physical assaults against Orthodox Jews in New York City is a matter of empirical fact. Anti-Semitic hate crimes against persons, which describes nearly everything involving physical contact, jumped from 17 in 2017 to 33 in 2018, with the number for the first half of 2019 standing at 19, according to the NYPD’s hate crime unit. Jews are the most frequent targets of hate crimes in New York City, and have been for some time.
You would think it would garner more media attention. But then the MSM doesn’t care about antisemitism, because they actually support quite a bit of it.
Reality is what’s true even if you don’t want to believe it. Hate crimes surge in NYC, attacks on Jews almost double.
The New York Police Department recorded 184 hate crimes through June 2 — up from 112 in 2018 — during a period when the city experienced a continued reduction in overall crimes.
Of the 184 incidents, 110 targeted Jews, up from 58 in 2018.
The next highest targeted group was whites, who were victims in 11 hate crimes, up from three in 2018.
Other general crime stats are reported in the article, and they basically look good for NYC. This statistic, not so much.
I ran across this via Frontpage Magazine, which quips: “Reality meet narrative.”
When the means of self-defense are outlawed, the old and the infirm are at the mercy of the young and the violent, the small at the mercy of the large, and anyone can be overpowered by numbers.
No guns, no knives, no provision for self-defense at all. You MUST rely on the STATE of everything. Even things they can’t supply. London bus HORROR: Women brutally battered after refusing to kiss for gang of thugs.
Now my guess is that they wouldn’t think of self-defense. They’re too civilized, or domesticated.
TWO gay women were left covered in blood after being brutally beaten on a London bus when they refused to kiss for the twisted amusement of a gang of homophobic men.
In that place where Great Britain used to be.
Don’t expect to see this covered in the US media. Doesn’t fit the narrative. Terrorist attacks two in Jerusalem’s Old City, gets shot by police- watch.
On Friday morning, a 19-year-old terrorist from the West Bank, who had allegedly come to the Temple Mount for Ramadan to pray, stabbed and critically wounded a 47-year-old man at Damascus Gate – which wasn’t captured in the video. Minutes later, while running through the Arab market, the terrorist stabbed the 16-year-old.
The Palestinian doing the stabbing was shot and killed by police.
Both stabbing victims are expected to survive.
Antisemitism. Um, Germany?.
Germans are known for their efficiency, which is how we know that these commissions, councils and laws they create to “combat” the problem are window-dressing in lieu of actual combat. If they really want to stop antisemitism in their country, it would be over with yesterday.
Baldilocks (Juliette Akinyi Ochieng) spent most of the 1980s in Berlin, “Courtesy of the USAF.” She has been posting at Da Tech Guy Blog for a while. Go read the whole thing. (Hat tip to the Other McCain.)
I had to edit the headline of this post a couple times. These guys are more than idiots. Harvard Magazine Apologizes for Lewd Lampoon of Holocaust Icon Anne Frank. (They get the literary-reference facepalm.)
Following a social media outcry and protests from students and Jewish officials, The Harvard Lampoon, a campus satirical magazine, apologized Tuesday for printing a doctored photograph mocking one of the most iconic of Holocaust victims, Anne Frank.
How can you be that freakin’ tone-deaf, and still manage to be student in the Ivy League? I think this says something about how far the institutions of higher learning have fallen.
The New York Times prints antisemitic cartoons in their international division, and less than a month later Harvard does this. With a couple of synagogue shootings as backdrop. I wonder how many of the editors and staff members are Journalism majors.
The Left is going off the deep end. (So does Antifa remind you of the Brownshirts or Mussolini’s Blackshirts?)
Security in houses of worship in general, and Jewish synagogues in particular, is a thing. The ‘Tactical Rabbi’ helps synagogues defend against anti-Semitic violence.
It was 45 minutes into his lecture when the rabbi pulled out an AR-15.
“Who thinks, by show of hands, that we should be carrying more guns in shul?” Rabbi Raziel Cohen asked the crowd at a Westside Chabad synagogue Wednesday night, during an active-shooter seminar organized in the wake of the deadly attack at Chabad of Poway.
Half the room raised their hands.
There are those that disagree, of course. (This is California, after all.) But it is an interesting article.
Burkina Faso is a land-locked country in West Africa, northeast of Côte d’Ivoire (Ivory Coast). Burkina Faso church attack: Gunmen open fire at mass service – priest among six dead.
A group of gunmen broke into a Catholic church in Burkina Faso on Sunday morning during Mass and began shooting at the congregation, Radio France Internationale (RFI) reported. At least six people were killed, and a priest was among those who died.
20-30 gunmen were involved. When they were done with the church the set fire to shops, and attacked the health center.
And there is NO coverage in the US media. (At least according to a Google search.) Massive 82% spike in antisemitic hate crimes in New York City, NYPD finds.
The New York Police Department has reported an 82% increase in antisemitic hate crimes in the city in the first three months of 2019.
The statistics, released on Thursday, also showed a 67% increase in overall hate crimes in New York City over the same period.
Deep Blue Denial.
