6. Gaza Crisis: Rome’s Historic Jewish Quarter Daubed with Swastikas and Anti-Semitic Posters
Anti-Semitic graffiti and flyers have defaced shops and walls in Rome’s historical Jewish San Giovanni neighbourhood raising fears of a rise in anti-Jewish sentiment in the capital.
Thank you Richard, Buck, M, and all who sent in materials. There is a pile more. Jihad watch today alone has 7 or 8 stories of Islamic antisemtism and renewed calls for global genocide around Canada, Europe and North America.
I am expecting however, that Jewish people will not go softly into that long night on this occasion. Even if some of the idiot leftist ones who are partially responsible for creating this situation (supporting Obama twice, pro state enforced gun control and pushing the ‘Islam is peace’ meme etc.) should be made to recognize their part in this. It is important however to remember, that is because they are leftists. Not because they are Jews. Jews are not a hive mind. But they once again have become a collective target.
Re; # 2, China will not take this latest attack lightly, soon tens of thousands of special paramilitary police, and troops will descend upon the area. Arrests and harsh punishment will follow.
I’d like to see more of that resolve.
Dozens of people have been killed or hurt in a terrorist attack in China’s Xinjiang region, according to the Xinhua news agency.
A gang armed with knives attacked a police station and government office in Elixku, Shache County.
The gang then attacked civilians and smashed vehicles in nearby town Huangdi.
The news agency, citing local police, said “dozens of Uighur and Han civilians were killed or injured” during the attack on Monday.
It added: “Police officers at the scene shot dead dozens of members of the mob.
“Initial investigation showed that it was a premeditated terror attack.”
Domestic politics in Israel are too tedious to follow. Just think of the Israeli left as the fanatical secular counterpart to the jihadi martyr. There’s been no reasoning with them.
The stark reality of isolation slaps sense into the most obtuse. And the founding maxim “Never Again” is suddenly, shockingly relevant.
Caroline Glick apprised a largely sympathetic Congress of Israel’s plight. That Jews may no longer be safe in many countries. And that the POTUS is the mortal enemy of the Jewish State.
World opinion certainly won’t save Israel. Leftist purity is a hollow echo in a cave. We’ve seen enough slaughtered Christians to reinforce the futility of passivity. Jews won’t go down easily this time, and they won’t go alone.
The Israeli Left is Waking Up

I think that ship has sailed, Ambassador.
