An Austrian politician's bold recommendation

The leader of the party formerly belonging to Jorge Haider, who was notoriously anti-semitic when he was around, is a considerable improvement over his predecessor, and recommends to move the Austrian embassy to Jerusalem:
Heinz-Christian Strache, leader of the anti-mass migration Freedom Party of Austria (FPÖ) has called for Austria to move its Israeli embassy to Jerusalem, echoing U.S. President Donald Trump.

The FPÖ chief said it was “totally absurd” for the Austrian government to not recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and relocate its embassy from its present location in Tel Aviv. Mr. Strache met with Israeli Deputy Yehuda Glick of the Likud party in Vienna to talk on the subject of “Islam and Islamisation”, Die Presse reports.
He's done a good deed raising these issues. Any European populist who can raise the importance of such issues will be making serious improvements in the continent's relations with Israel.

Court rules airlines no longer allowed to press women to change seats for Haredis

In an impressive ruling, an Israeli court's decided that airlines like El Al can no longer insist women change seats for the sake of Haredi men who won't sit next to the opposite sex:
El Al, and by extension other airlines, may no longer ask women to change seats on a flight due to the requests of haredi men who demand not to sit next to women, the Jerusalem Magistrate’s Court ruled.

The phenomenon of ultra-Orthodox men insisting on not sitting next to unrelated women on air flights has developed into a familiar pattern in recent years, with such demands frequently causing problems and delays for airlines due to the refusal of such men to take their seats before takeoff.

Although many leading authorities in Jewish law, including haredi ones, have ruled that there is no problem in inadvertently touching a woman while on some form of public transportation, a trend of ever-increasing stringencies in the haredi world on numerous issues has led to a refusal by haredi men to sit next to or with women.

The ruling, issued on Wednesday, relates to a case brought by the Israel Religious Action Center, the legal arm of the Reform Movement in Israel, in December 2015 on behalf of Renee Rabinowitz, an 81-year-old Holocaust survivor and Israeli citizen who boarded El Al’s Flight No. 81 from Newark to Israel.

Rabinowitz was asked by a flight attendant to move to another seat due to the request of a haredi man sitting next to her. She reluctantly agreed to do so but subsequently turned to IRAC to sue the airline over the incident.

“Requesting a seat change on an airplane before or after takeoff, based on a passenger’s gender, constitutes a breach of the Prohibition of Discrimination in Products, [Services and Entry into Public Places Law],” ruled Judge Dana Cohen-Lekach of the Jerusalem Magistrate’s Court.

The decision means that it will now be considered illegal and discriminatory for El Al to ask a passenger to move from her seat due to her gender.
When I first read about this particular case, what mattered is that the Haredi man apparently asked the stewards to move the lady somewhere else, and she felt the official who spoke to her either tricked her, or concealed the exact details. Also offensive was that a woman who'd been through a nightmarish situation would be asked to subject herself to something that wasn't all that different from the beliefs of the nazis. As a result, I found it revolting the airplane staff would coddle such insulting customs and beliefs.

Therefore, the success of the lawsuit is something I admire, and will even more provided that the staffs prove their ability to make clear to Haredis in the future that any attempt to delay flights over petty issues will have serious consequences.

A Canadian Muslim stabbed a police officer in Flint, Michigan

Now, here's news of a terrorist attack that occurred in Michigan, which has a significant number of Islamists living around Dearborn, Henry Ford's old stomping grounds (Hat tip: Gates of Vienna):
Police say an airport officer was stabbed in the neck Wednesday morning at Bishop International Airport in Flint.

The officer was taken to the hospital. Michigan State Police said the officer was in critical condition. He has since been upgraded to stable condition.

Police identified the injured officer as Lt. Jeff Neville.

Bishop International Airport was evacuated and is closed.

Police said a suspect has been taken into custody.

The airport released the following statement:

The stabbing incident at the airport remains under FBI led investigation. Local, state, and federal agencies are on scene. The airport remains closed until further notice. The police officer assaulted is in stable condition. The suspect is in custody and is currently being questioned. Please stay tuned to our Facebook page for updates including when the airport will reopen.

NBC’s News’ investigative journalist Tom Winter reports that the Canadian-born suspect shouted “Allahu Akbar” before stabbing Neville multiple times.

The Flint City Hall began operating under heightened security in an abundance of caution after the incident.

“Right now we are still awaiting more information about the situation at Bishop Airport this morning,” Flint Mayor Karen Weaver said. “My thoughts and prayers are with all of our law enforcement officers who work to service and protect us each and every day. I want the public to know that several agencies are involved and working to ensure the situation is under control. However, at this time we are taking extra precautions just to be safe.”
Under Justin Trudeau, the situation with Islamofascists has gotten much worse. Now, the virus has gone across the border and led to some terrible results.

A suicide bomber in Brussels nearly caused death

Another suicide bomber tried to attack a Belgian train station, and fortunately, his devices failed to work. He was killed by a soldier guarding the station (Hat tip: The Jawa Report):
A man who triggered a suitcase bomb in a failed attack at a busy Brussels train station was a 36-year-old Moroccan citizen who was known to the police but was not wanted over terrorism-related offenses, the Belgian authorities said on Wednesday.

The bomber entered Brussels Central Station at 8:39 p.m. on Tuesday, went downstairs from the main ticket hall and began shouting near a group of passengers, according to Eric Van der Sijpt, a spokesman for the federal prosecutor’s office.

He was carrying a suitcase bomb that contained nails and gas bottles, Mr. Van der Sijpt said. The man set off a partial and relatively harmless explosion.

He then left the bag behind while he went in pursuit of a station master, Mr. Van der Sijpt said, and it “exploded a second time, more violently.”

After the second explosion, the man went back upstairs, approached a soldier and screamed “Allahu akbar” (Arabic for “God is great”). The soldier opened fire, killing him. Initial reports that the man might have been wearing a suicide belt proved to be unfounded.
Here's another case where you have a terrorist attack occurring nearly every week, yet almost nothing proper like curfews and deportations is done to prevent these horrors from potentially happening.

Muslim who rammed police van on Champs-Elysee had gun permit

There was another terrorist attack in Paris yesterday, and while the jihadist was shot dead without succeeding in murdering anybody, what's disturbing is that this man, an Islamofascist who was known to authorities, had something innocents are otherwise denied in France by the overlording politicians:
The suspect’s father told AFP that his son “had a registered weapon, he practised shooting”. A source close to the case said the 31-year-old had a firearms permit.
Naturally, this beggars the question how someone so vile could be allowed to have all the firearm permits he wanted, whereas any innocent bystander is forbidden to have any. It proves something is rotten, not in Denmark per se, but in France's political/authority system, and someone owes a serious apology for what they've led to.

Marine Le Pen wins 1st parliamentary election

She may have lost the presidential election, but for the first time, she's won a seat in France's National Assembly, and the Front National itself got nearly 10 percent of the vote:
Far-right leader Marine Le Pen on Sunday won a seat in the French parliament, but her anti-EU National Front (FN) party faced disappointment, winning only four to eight seats, polls and party figures said. The number of lawmakers, if confirmed, would be too small to form a parliamentary group which would give the FN a role in setting the agenda and win positions on committees.

Le Pen, 48, who lost her presidential bid to centrist Emmanuel Macron, triumphed in her northern fiefdom of Henin-Beaumont, a depressed former mining town, the town’s FN mayor Steeve Briois said.
Oh, I wouldn't be too sure the results wouldn't be enough to ensure she'll have some influence. After all, she's a beginner in politics, and this is her first actual election to parliament. Where she failed at presidency, she did succeed in making her way to parliament.

Though Emmanuel Macron's party won a huge amount of seats, it didn't get the vast majority the pollsters/media were predicting, and the French Republicains party got more than expected on their part. There's more about the election here.

In other good news, Meyer Habib was reelected to the Assembly. I'm hoping all of the relevant sources will do their best to make themselves heard on the case of Islamofascism devouring the country now, because that should be the most serious issue facing us all now.

Lady soldier stabbed to death by 3 Muslim attackers near Old City

Some terrorists with at least one machine gun and knives stabbed a female IDF soldier to death as they attacked a group of soldiers at the Old City:
Three Palestinian assailants armed with guns and knives carried out an attack Friday night in Jerusalem that killed one Border Policewoman and left a number of people wounded.

The officer, Hadas Malka, 23, was critically stabbed while attempting to reach for her gun, according to Israel’s Police, and later succumbed to her wounds. All three attackers were shot dead by officers at the scene.

The attack unfolded along Sultan Suleiman Street, near Damascus Gate in the Old City. At one scene, two of the attackers were shot and killed after assaulting police officers with knives and guns. At the other, an attacker was shot dead after stabbing a border policewoman, critically wounding her.
Thousands have attended her funeral. The PLO, in as much an act of contempt for America as for Israel, refused to condemn the murderers, proving why unless Islam is abolished, there'll never be peace between Israel and Arabic countries.

CNN published fake news about Democrats praying at baseball field

Gateway Pundit reveals that the news some Democrats supposedly prayed for Steve Scalise's well being was apparently fake. Needless to say, it's atrocious in the extreme how they were misleading everyone into thinking the liberals actually cared.

Should a girl be allowed to play on a mainly men's cricket match?

An Israel girl who practices cricket ball was turned down for a match by the Israeli association for the sport because of her gender. But what's bothersome here is that the manager remained vague as to why:
Maccabiah chairman Amir Peled is adamant that Naomi Eytan cannot play. “Just a couple of years ago an Israeli umpire was killed when he was hit by a ball,” he told the JC.

When asked if he is suggesting that cricket is too dangerous for girls but not boys he added, “I didn’t say that. We have our regulations and we cannot allow mixed teams.”
Ahem. If it's because he feels that as a girl, she may not have the endurance for the impact of the ball being thrown by a man, he should say so, yet he remains ambiguous, so I'm not sure what his beef is.

If the case is taken to court, I'm okay with that. I'm not okay, however, with transgender men deliberately pretending to be women and butting in on women's sports to get prizes they don't deserve.

UK arrests koran burners, apparently considering them more dangerous than jihadists

Three tragedies committed by jihadists recently, and who does the government in the UK consider a problem? People who burn korans. Robert Spencer's written about this (Hat tip: Jihad Watch):
The UK’s Mailonline reported the horrifying news Thursday: “Police have arrested two people on suspicion of racial hatred after a video appeared online showing a man burning a copy of the Koran.”

Well, that’s a relief. The British police are to be congratulated, and we all owe them a debt of gratitude, for getting riffraff like this off the streets and into jail where they belong, before more innocent Qur’ans are harmed. After all, twenty-two people were recently murdered in Manchester and seven in London by Islamic jihadis who were incited to violence by the Qur’an, but look! The “far-right” is just as much of a threat as the jihadis, as Britain’s “counter-extremism” Quilliam Foundation claims! Two Qur’ans were burned!

That’s what these arrests of Qur’an-burners are all about: shoring up that sagging narrative, and buttressing the claim that the racist, xenophobic “far-right” constitutes just as much of a threat to Britons as Islamic jihadis. A couple of charred copies of a book of which literally billions of copies exist next to twenty-nine dead is a sad exercise in moral equivalence, but it’s all the British authorities have to work with, and so they’re running with it.

Meanwhile, Sky News reported that in a raid of a safe house that the London jihad attackers used, “investigators found an English-language copy of the Koran opened at a page describing martyrdom.”

One might almost get the idea that the Qur’an had something to do with inciting the London jihad mass murderers to commit their great jihad, if we didn’t have learned imams such as British Prime Minister Theresa May to explain to us that jihad terror is a “perversion of Islam.”

In May’s view, which is, of course, the view of the entire British establishment, jihad terror has nothing whatsoever to do with Islam, and Muslims constitute a race different from that of non-Muslim Britons, such as to insult them – by, say, noticing that Islamic jihadis justify violence against Infidels by referring to clear texts of their holy book — is to commit an act of “racial hatred.”
This could explain at least partially why the Tories didn't do well in the election. The dhimmitude continues apace in Britain, and the whole establishment can only think of lecturing the public what to think/believe. It's an utter disgrace and disrespects the memory of the victims of jihadism.

A Reform group prays at Western Wall without Haredis interrupting

This was last month, but is still very significant in what it proves:
Some 450 people participating in a conference of the World Union for Progressive Judaism were allowed to bring Torah scrolls into the Western Wall plaza and read from them undisturbed on Thursday morning.

The group brought in five Torah scrolls, despite the ban by the Western Wall Heritage Foundation against bringing in private Torah scrolls.

[...] Thursday’s progressive prayer service appears to be the first time that a non-Orthodox group was permitted to bring in and read a Torah at the site.
The group first prayed in the egalitarian prayer area at the southern end of the Western Wall outside the main site, and went to the central plaza to read from the Torah.

When they arrived at the entrance to the Western Wall, security officials of the Western Wall Heritage Foundation said that bringing the Torah scrolls in violated its policies, but when the group insisted they wished to enter with them they were allowed to do so.

No less remarkable was the almost complete absence of harassment and protests of any kind against the progressive service, which was conducted in the upper plaza just behind the men’s and women’s section.

Rabbi Daniel Freelander, president of the World Union for Progressive Judaism, described the service as “a perfect experience” and a statement that progressive Jews want to be a normal part of activities at the Western Wall.

“This was a very different experience then we’ve had in the past; there were no protests, no upset and no violence, and hopefully this is a sign of where things are moving,” Freelander told The Jerusalem Post.

“We want to pray at the Western Wall the way we do in our home communities, and we therefore want the government resolution to be implemented,” he continued in reference to the cabinet decision last year to create a state-recognized egalitarian prayer area at the southern section of the site.

Rabbi Gilad Kariv, director of the Reform Movement in Israel, noted that there had been no massed ranks of schoolgirls or yeshiva students protesting against the service, as has frequently occurred at past non-Orthodox services, and neither was there women blasting on whistles, verbal abuse or any other harassment.

Kariv said that three yeshiva students began singing in their direction, which was the only form of protest that was encountered.

He added that the officials from the progressive Jewish denominations had directly informed the Prime Minister’s Office about the scheduled service and that they believed the PMO had asked the Western Wall Heritage Foundation and Rabinowitz to allow the Torah scrolls to be brought in.

Kariv said that the lack of protests on Thursday was proof that the opposition to progressive prayer at the Western Wall was purely political.
I think so too. Those Haredi sources who set all that up still haven't apologized for resorting to violence. This made me think recently: what if Shira Banki had been one of the Women of the Wall group? Do they know how bad it would look if they attacked people like her after what that horrible maniac who was raised under their terrible education system did? I think they're well aware of that, but because the tragedy had no direct impact or relation to that topic, they felt they could get away with it. I've seen how they only seem to publicly react to something abominable committed by Haredi crackpots when it actually makes serious headlines, as did the Beit Shemesh horror in 2011.

The Haredis know perfectly well that prayer alone will not damage the Western Wall/Temple Mount, and that it's ultimately up to God to judge WotW, not the Haredis. Which, IMHO, suggests, believe it or not, that the opposition is technically atheist, or has a warped idea of what God wants, sort of like Islamists. They might also want to consider how many converts to Reform Judaism they may have led to with their offensive reactions - I recently was walking through Tel Aviv, and noticed a possible Reform synagogue with a LGBT flag draped across; what are the odds the Haredis led to so many people to get angry to the point they'd join the Reform in revenge?

If there's any meat to that theory, then the Haredis have only their awful behavior to blame. If they truly don't want that to happen, that's why they'll cease giving the Reforms the attention they don't need. I don't find Reform appealing, but I am willing to respect their wish to pray unperturbed at the Western Wall, and don't think they could come within even miles of "taking over". I'm sure the Haredi extremists don't think so either.
