Kansas JCC holds ‘unity service’ after shooting attack
“Why would such a tragedy befall three good souls? Why do bad things happen to good people? We don’t know,” said Rabbi Arthur P. Nemitoff of Congregation B’nai Jehudah. “God did not cause this pain. But like us, He is weeping.”
Those were among the first words uttered at the Service of Unity & Hope, held at the Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City on Thursday, four days after the neo-Nazi activist Frazier Glenn Cross shot and killed Dr. William Lewis Corporon and his grandson Reat Griffin Underwood there. Terri LaManno, the third victim, was shot dead minutes later at Village Shalom, just up the street.
The JCC was overflowing with more than 1,500 people who came together in a gathering of faith and love. Among the crowd were hundreds of the local clergy and dignitaries from Overland Park, Leawood and Kansas City, Kansas, as well as officials from as far as Washington, DC.
Examining Extremism in the Wake of the Kansas JCC Violence
When Anti-Zionism Bleeds into Anti-Semitism - In the Wake of the Deadly Kansas City Shootings
It was revealed that the Neo-Nazi killer in Kansas had praised Max Blumenthal on the neo-nazi forum that he frequented
Israel Forming Super PAC to Attack Paul & Obama
This is some big dookee, yaw'll. Jew journalist Max Blumenthal exposes and explains this attempt by a foreign government Israel, to buy the presidential election for the neo-con, war-mongering republican establishment. Like I've been saying, the kikes simply do not trust a lame-duck black president with the name Hussein.
A few weeks prior, Max had re-tweeted a neo-nazi's rant about "Jewish Supremacism in the 20th Century," the same 20th century which saw the Holocaust, the worst genocide of the Jews in history.
However that same user, whose rant about "Jewish Supremacism in the 20th century" Max Blumenthal retweeted, had also tweeted this shocking anti-Semitic abuse at a Jewish twitter user
It was revealed that the Neo-Nazi JCC shooter had wanted to publicize what he described as the hateful anti-gentilism of the Talmud:
One of Max Blumenthal's collaborators, David Sheen, is an avowed Judeophobe who in a series of shocking tweets revealed his hatred of Judaism and the Torah and the Talmud, believing them to be anti-gentile. David Sheen features prominently in Max Blumenthal's new book, Goliath, as well as Blumenthal's videos. David Sheen also has a penchant for ranting against what he calls, "Jewish supremacists." Previously, such hateful language and Judeophobia had been seen mostly on the far-right neo-nazi forums where the JCC killer became radicalized.

In the wake of the deadly shooting, Max wrote an article on Mondoweiss attempting to link the gunman's Nazi ideology to Zionism. The post quickly garnered over 100 comments. Almost all the commentators at Mondoweiss used the Nazi targeting of the JCC as an occasion to lash out at Zionism and Israel. An official editor at Mondoweiss with thousands of posts, Annie Robbins, sought to portray the anti-semitic shooting as an Israeli Mossad conspiracy acted out through the Israeli Foreign Ministry. This was in response to another regular Mondoweiss commentator, bilal a, who has had thousands of comments on Mondoweiss. "Bilal a" implied that the shooting may have been carried out by the Zionists since only Christians died, and it was on Passover eve, and the blood libel teaches that Jews use Passover as a time to sacrifice non-Jews.

White Supremacist Website Linked to Nearly 100 Murders Worldwide
Nearly 100 murders around the world in the last five years can be traced back to users of the biggest white supremacist forum on the Internet, a hate-group watchdog said Thursday.
The majority of those killings were committed by Anders Behring Breivik, the Norwegian extremist best known for the massacre of 69 people, most of them teenagers, at a summer camp outside Oslo in 2011.
But, in common with other killers, he frequented, which the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) branded a "racist forum" in a study that comes on the heels of Sunday's triple murder at two Jewish sites in Kansas.
Kansas Mayor Faces Impeachment After Speaking Kindly of Jewish Center Killer
Clevenger added that Miller was “very fair and honest and never had a bit of problems out of him. He was always nice and friendly and respectful of elder people. He respected his elders greatly, as long as they were the same color as him.”
A month ago, a Marionville resident drew attention to a ‘Letter to the Editor’ Clevenger sent to a local newspaper nearly a decade ago in which he described himself as “a friend of Frazier Miller helping to spread his warnings.” Clevenger also decried the “Jew-run medical industry” and the “Jew-run government backed banking industry,” KOLR said.
Clevenger later tried to defend himself in a letter sent to the Aurora Missouri Advertiser days before Marionville’s April 8 election. He denied being a racist, saying that he “only pointed out the corporations responsible for destroying the United States are run by Jews.”
Palestinians Need More Than Borders
Even if one were to dismiss and explain away the Palestinian Authority’s blatant hostility to the state that it is supposed to be making peace with—as Western leaders routinely attempt to—there is no getting around the shambolic failure of the Palestinians to govern. The rioting that took place in Hebron today, and the terror attack perpetrated against a visiting Israeli family in that same city just before the Passover holiday, is just the latest and most visceral reminder of this refusal to run internal Palestinian affairs responsibly. Despite the unprecedented levels of international aid that is poured into the Palestinian areas, the PA’s spiraling debt is now so out of control that it no longer even seems able to pay the ballooning 850 million shekel electricity bill that it owes the Israelis, while at the same time the authority has been struggling to pay its employee’s wages. Yet somehow there is always enough money to make large payouts to Palestinian terrorists and their families.
Those such as president Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry who claim that the Palestinians are ready for statehood, or that we are on the verge of witnessing the emergence of a harmonious two-state arrangement, are living in fantasyland. Abbas is now so weak that under public pressure he has simply ceased to dispatch his forces to neutralize Hamas and Islamic Jihad opponents in places like Jenin and Nablus. This hasn’t always been the case; the PA has stacked up a shocking record of human rights abuses in the course of its crackdowns on Islamist rivals. No doubt Abbas would still wish to keep these militants at bay–and not for Israel’s sake but rather for the security of his own faction–but it seems the Palestinian public will no longer tolerate such actions. The constant fear of overthrow is real for Abbas and Fatah.
Netanyahu loses majority for deal to extend talks with Palestinians
The deal had a majority among the 23 members of the cabinet, thanks to support from Netanyahu, Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon and Strategic Affairs Minister Yuval Steinitz, all of the Likud, five ministers from Yesh Atid, two from Hatnua and two from Yisrael Beytenu.
But Public Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovitch of Yisrael Beytenu surprised Netanyahu’s associates when he told Army Radio that he opposes extending the negotiations if Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas does not publicly condemn Monday’s terrorist attack that killed senior police officer Baruch Mizrachi.
Hamas looks to scuttle talks while PA can’t make up its mind
The pictures from Wednesday morning show that the incident on the Temple Mount wasn’t spontaneous. Inside the al-Aqsa mosque, there were enough stones and fireworks gathered to make the site look, and especially sound, like a war zone. Hamas doesn’t want nine more months of talks between Israel and the PA, and is trying to shake up the situation in the West Bank in the hope that it might lead to the dissolution of the PA and the weakening of Fatah.
This is where the blatant attempts to sabotage the talks through incitement around al-Aqsa come from. Several Islamist groups operate on the Temple Mount, the Northern Branch and Hamas being the most dominant. They are the ones who called out slogans of support for ousted Egyptian president Mohammed Morsi, and they are also those who likely stand behind the recent attacks in an attempt to ignite the Temple Mount.
On the other side, the PA continues to suffer from a split personality regarding the negotiations. On the one hand, they want to continue the talks as much as Israel does. This is the clear interest of PA decision-makers, who understand that an implosion of the talks could lead to a serious escalation, endangering the PA — just what Hamas wants. On the other hand, the line the PA is taking in the Palestinian press against Israel sounds nationalist and militant.
Israelis, Palestinians to hold separate talks with US envoy
Indyk was due to hold talks with chief Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat in the West Bank city of Jericho from 08:00 GMT, the source said, but he had no details of the US-Israeli meeting and Israeli officials did not respond to requests for information.
Thursday’s talks, in a Jerusalem hotel, were “very difficult,” the source said. “The gap… is still wide.”
Officials in Jerusalem said Friday that no progress had been made in peace talks that took place between Israeli and Palestinian negotiators the night before, and that the two sides would meet again next week after the Passover holiday.
PA Official: Recognizing Israel as a Jewish State is 'Fantasy'
On Thursday, PA official Mahmoud Khalifa called Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman's demands that the PA recognize Israel as a Jewish state a "fantasy," and claimed Israel is "running away from the implementation of the peace process, and conditions which would cover up [its] crimes of [building] settlements and land theft."
Khalifa also said that Israel's operations against terrorism in PA-run areas constitute "aggressive and unilateral actions which show clearly that Israel is skirting the peace process."
He then accused both Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Liberman of power-mongering - and murder.
Palestinian Authority Flags Replace Israeli Flags in Tel Aviv
Israeli flags were replaced by Palestinian Authority (PA) flags on Friday morning at the Yafo (Jaffa) Port, located at the southern end of Tel Aviv.
Walla! reported the flags had been waving at the site for several hours, and that despite a number of requests to Tel Aviv police, officers or Municipality workers had not rushed to take them down.
The flags were put up after Israeli flags at the site were removed; the whereabouts of those flags and the perpetrators of the switch remain unknown.
Palestinians clash with IDF in Hebron over prisoners
In the southern West Bank city of Hebron, some 2,000 people marched, carrying photos of prisoners and waving Palestinian flags, and another 1,000 protested in the northern city of Nablus.
“We support our prisoners!” read banners.
Palestinian Authority security forces were unable to prevent the marchers from drawing close to the Jewish enclave in Hebron and dozens of demonstrators began throwing rocks at an IDF post in the area.
Israeli security forces used tear gas, stun grenades, and other riot control methods in an effort to push the rioters back.
Likud Minister Says Terror has Won on the Temple Mount
Minister of Transport Yisrael Katz (Likud-Beytenu) called on his own government to allow Jews to freely ascend to the Temple Mount, and denounced the Muslim rioting on the Mount.
"All red lines have been crossed at the Temple Mount,” Katz stated Thursday, and added that Hamas has taken over the Mount, “carried out military parades and planted its flags on the mosques. The entry of Jews to the site, meanwhile, was barred again.”
Police Place Limits on Temple Mount for Muslims
Following intelligence information received by Jerusalem police on plans by Muslim visitors to the Temple Mount to disrupt the public order at the end of their prayers, entrance to the holy site was limited to Muslim visitors.
The decision to only allow Muslim men over the age of 50, and women of any age, to pray at the site was made by Jerusalem police commander Nitzav Yossi Pariente.
Further, only Muslim visitors with blue teudot zehut (identification cards), held by Israeli citizens and residents, are to be allowed in.
IDF Blog: How We Are Preparing to Defend Israel Against Hezbollah
The lessons of the Second Lebanon War continue today. In that confrontation with the Lebanese Shiite militia in 2006, the emphasis was put on cooperation between the different branches of the military in order to achieve maximum effectiveness against terrorists embedded within the civilian population.
“The forces on the ground, fighters in tanks, helicopters and fighter planes are more ready than ever and trained to work with the IDF Intelligence Corps in emergency situations,” the northern comander said.
Throughout the interview, the northern commander insisted on the professionalism expected from soldiers on the ground. This professionalism ​​results from hours of training, preparing the soldiers for all the circumstances they could face with the enemy, including: civilians in the combat zone, ambushes and attempted abduction. It is this value of maximum preparation that will ultimatly ensure Israel’s safety.
The Golan Heights, where al-Qaeda fights Hezbollah
Most of the Syrian Golan has fallen to the opposition. Along the entire Syrian-Israeli border, there are only two areas still under the rule of the Assad regime in Damascus — Quneitra in the central Golan; and Khader, the Druze area in the northern heights.
Groups affiliated with al-Qaeda maintain a strong presence here. What’s more, Jabhat al-Nusra, the group created as the Syrian branch of al-Qaeda in Iraq (until it began fighting with the leaders of The Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant) now controls the southern Syrian Golan Heights.
Syrian Airstrikes Close to Israeli Border
Syrian fighter jets struck villages and sites associated with the opposition forces late Friday morning, in the Quneitra region of the Golan Heights.
The attacks on Quneitra, the only crossing along the Israeli-Syrian border in the Golan Heights, raised concerns in Israel, reports Channel 10.
In response, the IDF stepped up preparations along the border, and sent out IAF planes to provide an air presence in the area and deter any encroachments on Israeli sovereign airspace.
Abbas’ Office Scrambles to Deny Reports He Condemned Passover Terror Attack
The office of Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas on Wednesday rushed to deny reports – given to media outlets by a delegation of opposition Israeli lawmakers who had just returned from Ramallah – that the Palestinian leader had condemned a deadly Monday terrorist attack on an Israeli family, a day after Abbas’s silence on the matter had been blasted by Jerusalem as deeply complicating efforts to sustain flagging peace talks. Terrorists had riddled the family’s car with bullets, killing the male driver and wounding his wife and child.
Abbas and other figures from his Fatah faction had through the week remained conspicuously silent on the matter, amid celebrations of the murder by other groups, triggering a harsh condemnation from Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
Gaza's Pro-Terror 'Arab Idol' To Perform in Nazareth
Mohammed Assaf of Gaza, who won the "Arab Idol" singing contest last June, is scheduled to perform in the Israeli-Arab city of Nazareth on April 27. The grassroots Zionist group "Im Tirtzu" is working to block the performance given Assaf's repeated attacks on Israel.
Im Tirtzu notes that Assaf dedicated his contest victory to the "shaheeds", or "martyred" terrorists, and the "prisoners," or Arab terror convicts in Israeli jails.
Assaf similarly sang songs in the contest referring to several Israeli cities not over the 1949 Armistice lines, including Nazareth, where he is to perform, as well as Tzfat, Haifa and others, as being part of "Palestine."
Pharell Williams' "Happy" the Gaza Concentration camp edition
Variations of Pharell Williams' feel-good anthem "Happy" have been going viral all over Youtube. Nearly 800 different versions of Williams' song have been uploaded to Youtube from over 90 countries. Check out the latest- the Gaza Concentration camp edition. Note the broad boulevards, the swimming pools, discotheques, and the fully stocked grocery stores.
This is Gaza, the world's largest open air prison.
Iranians carry 'death to Israel' signs as Rouhani tells crowd he supports dialogue
Chanting "God is Greatest", troops paraded missiles carriers, some bearing banners saying "Death to America" and "Death to Israel", armored personnel carriers and unmanned surveillance aircraft as well as small submarines with men wearing aqua-lungs alongside.
Unlike hardline predecessor Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Rouhani did not use his speech to lash out at the United States and Israel, which Tehran refuses to recognize.
"We told the world during the (nuclear) talks and we repeat that we don't support any aggression ... We support dialogue," Rouhani said in the live broadcast.
NYT: “Extensive Disagreements” Suggest West May Lack Leverage to Bring Nuke Deal
Iran is obligated by binding United Nations Security Council resolutions to roll back – and in the case of its atomic program, to dismantle – infrastructure across all of those programs.
Continued Iranian intransigence is likely to fuel concerns that Western negotiators lack sufficient leverage to extract meaningful and robust concessions.
Mark Dubowitz and Rachel Ziemba – respectively the executive director of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies and the director of emerging markets at Roubini Global Economics - on Thursday published analysis concluding that “a variety of key macroeconomic indicators” all converged on the conclusion that Iran is experiencing an economic recovery, in part due to American and Iranian officials having undervalued the sanctions relief provided by the interim Joint Plan of Action (JPA). In light of the analysis, Dubowitz suggested that the White House should stop agreeing with Iran’s lowball estimations of the relief.
US releases $450 million of frozen Iranian funds
State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf said that "all sides have kept the commitments made" under the agreement. She said that "as Iran remains in line with its commitments," the United States, France, Germany, Britain, China, Russia and the European Union "will continue to uphold our commitments as well."
The report by the U.N. nuclear agency showed that Iran had -- as stipulated under the November 24 agreement -- diluted half of its higher-grade enriched uranium reserve to a fissile content less prone to bomb proliferation. Tehran has also continued to convert the other half of its stock of uranium gas refined to a 20 percent fissile purity, the IAEA report said.
Miserable Syrians in Jordan say they’d rather go home
With Syria’s war now in its fourth year, many of the 100,000 refugees in the sprawling desert Zaatari camp in northern Jordan feel the world has forgotten their struggle to survive.
“Syrian refugees would rather go home and face inevitable death than swallow the bitterness of displacement,” Abu Isam, 52, told AFP before his cousins and other refugees boarded a bus back to Syria.
“Nobody cares about Syrian refugees — the world has fooled us. They said our crisis will not last long. Now I feel a solution to our dilemma is impossible,” he said.
UN rights chief slams ‘rampant’ torture in Syria
UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay says her office has documented a “broad pattern of torture and ill-treatment” in government facilities and some run by rebel groups.
Pillay said in a statement Monday that the report draws on detailed testimony from victims and witnesses.
The abuses include rape, beatings and burning, sometimes leading to death.
Pillay’s office has documented widespread abuses by the government and rebel groups in Syria’s three-year civil war, prompting calls for war crimes inquiries.
Turkey 'seeking free trade deal with Iran'
Turkey has started to work on a deal with Iran to ease business between the two nations with the ultimate goal of having a full free-trade agreement, Turkey's Development Minister has said.
Speaking at a business forum in the Iranian capital of Tehran on Wednesday, Cevdet Yilmaz said: “The two countries complement each other. Turkey is the gateway for Iran to the west and Iran is to the east for Turkey.
"If the two nations cooperate more, it has the potential to affect the entire region. We can use this potential more accurately by not only increasing trade between two nations, but also by increasing mutual investments - especially in the fields of tourism and services.”
Western Companies Pressure Turks to Cancel Rogue Missile-Defense Deal with China
Turkey’s Hurriyet Daily News disclosed on Wednesday that figures from European and U.S. defense firms have been heavily lobbying their counterparts in Turkey’s defense industry for help in blocking a controversial move by Ankara – announced last September, only to be met with immediate pushback by the West – to purchase a missile defense system from a Chinese company blacklisted by Washington for violating anti-proliferation measures:
Turkey approves law to expand spy powers
Turkey’s parliament approved a controversial law on Thursday expanding the powers of the national spy agency and setting prison terms for publishing leaked information as the government fights back against a widening corruption scandal.
The new legislation, passed after a heated debate in parliament, is the latest ammunition being deployed by Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan as he seeks to push back against the greatest challenge yet to his 11-year rule.
