Hate: Miami synagogue vandalized with swastikas, pro-Hamas messages

posted at 6:41 pm on July 28, 2014 by Guy Benson

First we saw the Boston tussle, then came last weekend’s spectacle in Chicago, and now we have this report out of South Florida.  Two incidents in two days (via CBS 4 Miami):

For the second time in as many days, messages of hate targeted members of South Florida’s Jewish community. Early Monday morning, spray painted swastikas and the word “Hamas” were discovered on the pillars in front of the Congregation Torah Ve’emunah... “It was the worst thing that one wants to see on his own place of worship,” said a member of the temple. A member of the community watch discovered the vandalism around 1 a.m. “As I was rolling by I noticed some coloring on the wall,” said Yona Lunger. “I back up again, looked again and I said ‘wow, it’s a swastika’. It’s very disturbing, very disturbing.” On Saturday, a family who lives along Meridian Avenue in a predominantly Jewish neighborhood of Miami Beach found their cars had been vandalized as they left to attend a service at their synagogue. “They wrote “Hamas” on the back of the car window and they wrote “Jew,’” said Joshua, who didn’t want us to publish his last name.

Why might a Jewish victim of anti-Semitic vandalism be wary about giving his name to the press?  Perhaps he saw these reports out of supposedly advanced Western societies:

An 18-year-old Jewish man claimed on Friday he had been punched in the face in an unprovoked attack while wearing a skull cap in the centre of Berlin, in what would be the second such incident in less than a week. Police had to step in to protect an Israeli tourist couple from protesters who charged at them shouting “Jew! We’ll get you”…One Facebook page created in the last week, entitled Jeunes Revolutionnaires Francais, or Young French Revolutionaries, posted the names, photographs and addresses of 32 French Jews encouraging members to target them. After the picture of one young man seen wearing a skullcap was put up, he was attacked in his home in the Paris suburbs on Thursday evening by a group of masked men with iron bars.The group, which picked up 2,000 followers and more than 1,500 “likes”, was taken down on Friday night after it was reported to the social network.

The Washington Examiner’s Philip Klein says Facebook was warned about the group before its call to violence was acted upon, but only took the page down after someone was beaten with iron bars by masked thugs.  The social network also initially declined to delete a community group called “Death to zionst [sic] baby killer israeli Jews,” but eventually relented under pressure.  For the record, I’m generally not a fan of bans and boycotts, but violent threats and ethnic cleansing advocacy cross a bright line.  Bye:

Last week, pro-Hamas forces at the United Nations repeatedly accused the Jewish state of perpetrating a “genocide” against Gazans — a common refrain from conspiratorial and historically-illiterate Israel haters.  Jonah Goldberg eviscerated this slander in a recent column:

The Palestinian population has grown more than 100 percent since 1970. The population in the Gaza Strip has grown nearly threefold since 1990. The Palestinians themselves expect the population to double over the next two decades. “Genocide” is a loaded political term, but under any remotely reasonable definition, shouldn’t those numbers be going the other way? It’s just a hunch, but if the Israelis wanted to wipe out as many Palestinians as possible, never mind commit genocide, they probably wouldn’t issue warnings to Gazans (by phone and leaflet) to get out of harm’s way. Nor would Israel continue to allow hundreds of trucks of food and medical aid to enter Gaza even as hundreds of rockets leave Gaza.

The least “successful,” ahem, “genocide” in human history.  But still, why must Israel attack ‘civilian’ targets, leading to a ‘disproportionate’ body count?  Because Hamas intentionally runs its operations out of hospitals, schools and private homes — and urges its innocents to disregard Israeli warnings and serve as human shields.  The Jerusalem Post quotes a senior IDF source who explains how the terrorist organization’s tactics deliberately erase distinctions between “daily life” and “military infrastructure,” which he describes as “totally interwoven.”  On that score, here’s a handy “bomb-making at home” Hamas manual IDF forces have discovered upon raiding private residences:

Palestinian leaders and the international media (this example is particularly egregious) were quick to blame Israel for lethal explosions at a hospital and a refugee camp in Gaza today, but the IDF says both shells were Hamas misfires.  The Israeli military released a map depicting the points of impact of dozens of Hamas rockets landing within the Gaza strip.  According to the IDF, these payloads were intended for Israel’s civilians, but rained down on Gazans instead:

I’ll leave you with links to Israeli and American officials warning of an unfolding crisis in relations between our two countries.  Israeli leaders are livid with US Secretary of State John Kerry for undermining Egypt’s reasonable ceasefire effort, instead embracing a plan that is heavily slanted in Hamas’ favor. (The “Kerry ruined everything” assessment comes from Israel’s leading left-leaning newspaper).  Obama administration officials are furious with their Israeli counterparts for…criticizing the Obama administration.  You know who else is “fuming” at Kerry for scuttling the Egyptian deal?  Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.  Yes, Team Smart Power has managed to rankle both Netanyahu and Abbas by choosing to team up with representatives from Qatar and Turkey — whose leader just offered this magnanimous gesture to Jews in his country:

In a statement to the public earlier today, the Israeli Prime Minister reiterated that Israel’s current military campaign will not end until they’ve destroyed Hamas’ infiltration tunnels.

Now that’s just FUNNY, right there.

Police had initially said they would not allow the rally scheduled for 8 p.m., as the mutually agreed 12-hour truce between Israel and Hamas was set to expire at the same time. Police said a large-scale gathering of thousands of people as Tel Aviv remained under rocket threat would not be permitted.

However, when Israel agreed to extend the truce until midnight, police allowed the rally to go forward, but Hamas resumed rocket attacks after 8 p.m., claiming it had never agreed to the 4-hour extension. The protest and the right-wing counter-demonstration were then dispersed.

From the NY Times:

More than 1,000 Palestinians, mostly civilians, and at least 48 Israeli soldiers and three civilians on the Israeli side have been killed in the conflict.

Anyone notice the death tolls are always spelled out as “X Palestinians killed; 48 Israeli soldiers and 3 civilians have died”?

Can anyone point me to a photo of an official Hamas military uniform – the type that they are supposed to wear to be identified as members of an enemy force while in battle?

How about a photo of Hamas soldiers who have been killed in battle?

Why not?

Alien on July 28, 2014 at 8:35 PM

‘Palestinian’ death tolls are total bullshit. They come from Hamas, no one can confirm them in a war zone, and it is to Hamas’s great advantage to grossly exaggerate death numbers. It’s just more Pallywood, same as it ever was:

The media has engaged in journalistic malpractice by reporting casualty figures for civilians coming from Gaza as gospel. The figures come from the Gazan Ministry of Health, which is controlled by Hamas. The Ministry of Health counts everyone not in uniform as a civilian. Most Hamas fighters don’t wear uniforms. The UN is sometimes sourced for the figures, but the UN gets its figures from … the Gazan Ministry of Health…

We need to defend and protect the Jews here in the US especially, but also in Israel. Not only is it the right thing to do, but it also is the smart thing to do. Should Israel be wiped out, then the pigs who wiped them out will come for us full force. Their god, be it Allah or socialism in all of its various forms (Naziism, Communism, Socialism, etc.) hates and want to wipe out the one true God of Abraham and Issac.

They are coming for Jews now, but Christians are also in the cross-hairs.

(Isn’t it interesting how, throughout history, nearly every regime, country or creed that we have considered evil has hated Jews? The U.S.S.R, Nazi Germany, radical Islam, The Spanish Inquisition, etc.. In my opinion, if you can get along with people, then you must be a generally good person. But as soon as you start espousing hatred for anybody, but especially for Jews, then a bunch of alarms go off for me. I am very, very wary and do not trust anybody who espouses hatred for them.)

And, as we know from history, many of those killed in Gaza have been able to make it home in time for dinner to be killed again the next day, too – sometimes being killed multiple times.

And if I never see another picture of some snaggletoothed crone with her face contorted by ‘grief’, arms in the air, standing in front of what apparently is *another* of her many homes destroyed by Israelis (homes also seen in other photos dating back *years* and already in rubble-like conditions)… it will be too soon.

Sadly, the first reaction to photos of dead and destruction now is… “yeah, right”. I have no doubt there are casualties, but I am also equally certain that a majority of the numbers are bullshit, most of the ‘dead’ are not, etc. The Palestinians – with assistance and complicity from major media – have simply ruined their benefit of the doubt by all of their well-publicized ‘Paliwood’ antics over the years.

In the end, it seems like Leftists support Muslim Jihad because they want to see Christians dead. And they want Jews dead because the sooner the Jews are dead, the sooner Muslims can move on to exterminating Christians.

Why? Because the very existence of Christianity makes Leftists feel guilt. And they don’t feel that they should ever have to feel guilt.

HikaruKitsune on July 29, 2014 at 12:23 PM

zoyclem, I am Jewish and voted Dem for a long time – too long, though there was a time when there were liberals who didn’t hate America and Israel from Truman to Henry Jackson to Zell Miller and Joe Lieberman. The last two were drummed out of the party. I broke with the Dems for good during the Gulf War when it was clear that the Michael Moore wing of the party had taken over. When Obama ran in 2008 his anti-Israel bias was overwhelmingly obvious to me and I just cannot understand how any sincere friend of Israel could have *ever* voted for him.

Some people here say that American Jews don’t care about Israel any more. While that may be true of a far-leftist fringe I think that a large majority of American Jews still support Israel but an *awful* lot of them are in denial about the anti-Israel turn the Democrats as symbolized by Obama have taken. The non-Jewish leftists voting Dem – as exemplified by the trolls here in any Israel thread – hate Israel anyway so it’s not a conflict for them.

When will American Jews wake up and understand that democrats do not support Israel or Jewish issues in general? I am not a Jew, so perhaps there is something I am missing….but I just cannot understand how the vast majority of US Jews voted for Obama the second time around, when it patently obvious that he was anti-Israel. Every move that he has made with regard to the middle east has come at the expense of Israel and/or has benefited radical muslim factions. Do they not care about Israel?

Obama has been almost as big a disaster for Israel has he has for the US.
