6. Alarmed by anti-Semitism, French Jews consider flight

“I am French, born in Paris, says Salome Roussel. “I’m thinking about moving to Israel, because French people are more and more against Jews. They say we are a lobby, that we are the masters of the world, and it’s not so!”

Roussel, 38, is not alone. Growing numbers of French Jews are not just thinking about starting a new life in Israel: Record numbers of them are taking action. Last year 3,120 French Jews moved to Israel, according to the Israeli Immigration Ministry, a jump of 63 percent on the previous year. They even outnumbered US immigrants to Israel.

    Yeah, the elderly in nursing homes, relatives of same.

    The ones with adult children who are stupid and stubborn and won’t leave.

    Young adult, patriotic French Jews who don’t want to run from a country they grew up loving. Those want to fight for it, think others might join them.

    Poor things. Shocking, “dumber ones stay and die”.

    What Pakistan Knew About Bin Laden (NYT, March 19, 2014, H/T Jihadwatch)

    “… The Pakistani government, under President Pervez Musharraf and his intelligence chief, Lt. Gen. Ashfaq Parvez Kayani, was maintaining and protecting the Taliban, both to control the many groups of militants now lodged in the country and to use them as a proxy force to gain leverage over and eventually dominate Afghanistan. The dynamic has played out in ways that can be hard to grasp from the outside, but the strategy that has evolved in Pakistan has been to make a show of cooperation with the American fight against terrorism while covertly abetting and even coordinating Taliban, Kashmiri and foreign Qaeda-linked militants …”

  7. EGYPT – March 19 2014 – Cairo prosecutor orders inquiry into Al-Qaeda flag incident at Al-Azhar

    Egypt’s Prosecutor General Hesham Barakat has ordered an investigation into an incident at a student-led protest at Cairo’s Al-Azhar University, where the black jihadist flag used by groups like Al-Qaeda was raised on top of the university’s buildings.

    Around 300 students in favour of ousted Islamist president Mohamed Morsi had gathered at the university on Tuesday, according to security forces, which said the students had “caused chaos” and were reported to have displayed the Al-Qaeda flag.

    Prosecutors from east Cairo, where the university is located, have been ordered to look into the incident and arrest those who raised the flag.

    Security forces stormed Al-Azhar University’s campus on Wednesday to disperse students who had gathered for another protest.

    Also on Wednesday, reports have emerged that students at Cairo University, in the western part of the city, also raised the Al-Qaeda flag during a protest in the afternoon.

    The black flag – inscribed with the Islamic creed, or shahada, professing that there is no god but Allah and that Prophet Mohamed is his messenger – dates back to the third Islamic caliphate of the Abbasids, which enjoyed a 500-year reign from 750 AD until the sacking of Baghdad in 1258 AD by Mongolian forces.

    However, starting from 2001, the flag has been appropriated by jihadist groups such as Al-Qaeda, the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) in Syria and Iraq, Somalia’s Al-Shabaab and Egypt’s Ansar Beit Al-Maqdis, which has waged militant operations against security personnel and installations in the Sinai Peninsula and Nile Delta since the ouster of Islamist president Mohamed Morsi last year.
