FDR wanted Jews spread thin and kept out of US

Jerusalem Post
May 2, 2018
By: Daniel J. Roth

NEW YORK - New evidence suggests that as the Jews of Europe were being slaughtered across continent during the Holocaust, President Franklin D. Roosevelt did not want them seeking refuge on American shores. Tucked away in a secret vault inside the White House during his 12 year tenure as commander-in-chief, the newly revealed documents recently made public via the FDR Library paint a portrait of the President’s plan to ‘spread thin all over the world’ the remains of European Jewry.

Among the files in Roosevelt’s safe was evidence of a secret initiative dubbed the “M Project,” a study he commissioned that outlined options for post-war migration of the millions of Europeans, especially Jews, expected to be displaced by the war, according to Tablet Magazine. The project was first proposed in the summer of 1942, with Roosevelt enlisting the assistance of former diplomat and writer John Franklin Carter, who ran an informal secret intelligence service for the President, along with Carter’s colleague Henry Field. “I know that you and Henry Field can carry out this project unofficially, exploratorially, ethnologically, racially, admixturally, miscegenationally, confidentially and, above all, budgetarily,” FDR wrote to Carter in a secret memo authorizing the plan in July 1942. “Any person connected herewith whose name appears in the public print will suffer guillotinally,” the memo added.

The White House plan called for Carter and Field, a trained anthropologist, to seek the assistants of academics and geographers to survey “the vacant places of the earth suitable for post-war settlement,” specifically in Africa and South America, and the “type of people who could live in those places.”

Roosevelt’s initial choice to lead the clandestine resettlement plan was the curator of physical anthropology at the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History, Aleš Hrdlička. A prominent public intellectual and disciple of the eugenics theory - the science of improving a human population by controlled breeding to increase the occurrence of desirable heritable characteristics - Hrdlička was convinced of the superiority of the white race and obsessed with racial identity. Roosevelt’s relationship with Hrdlička existed years before the presidency, with the two exchanging letters for more than a decade. The documents show Hrdlička’s zeal for theories on racial mixtures and notions of human racial “stock,” ideas that appeared to strike a chord with the President.

Kanye

Is this a brilliant publicity stunt?

Have the writing of Walter E. Williams legitimately changed his mind?

Have the Kardashian shrews ruined him?

Was Rep. Maxine Waters out of line for saying he "talks out of turn"?

Is Dr. Phil right that he's crazy?

What say ye?

A Series of Unfortunate Events

I am watching this series on Netflix with my grandchildren.

Last night, there was a scene where the narrator places a stone on the grave of a lovely lady, unexplained, in the midst of his narration. This is but one of the lovely overt and subtle references to Judaism (or in-jokes in some cases) in the series that few but Jewish people would understand.

The Baudelaires (both the actors and the characters) are obviously Jewish, although this is never expressly stated.

My favorite in-joke was the antagonist trying to explain away a mysterious tattoo on his ankle. He said it was part of his religion. When asked what religion, he said "Judaism!"

Klaus (one of the protagonists) promptly responded "But Judaism discourages tattoos."

To which the antagonist responded (after a whispered hint from his minion) "Re-constructionist Judaism!", which was promptly accepted as a valid point by all present, including what appears to have been a Rabbi.

All in all, it's a very Jewish series, with Jewish morals and teachings.

I encourage watching.

As a final aside, my 13-year-old grandson has a massive crush on Violet Baudelaire, which I totally understand. She's both sharp and lovely.

Video of anti-Semitic attack in central Berlin sparks outrage

thelocal.de
18 April 2018

https://www.thelocal.de/20180418/jewish-men-attacked-with-belt-by-arabic-speaking-youth-in-central-berlin


German political and religious leaders expressed shock Wednesday over an alleged anti-Semitic attack on two men wearing traditional Jewish skullcaps in central Berlin filmed by one of the victims.

One of the young men targeted, who captured the incident on his smartphone, said they were confronted by three Arabic-speakers shouting insults at them, one of whom lashed out at him with a belt. Berlin police in their report on Tuesday's suspected anti-Semitic attack said that the suspect later also threatened his victim with a glass bottle.

In a twist to the story, the author of the video tape, which went viral on social media, a 21-year-old student called Adam, said Wednesday that he is an Israeli Arab. He told broadcaster Deutsche Welle that he wore the Jewish kippa gifted to him by a friend to see whether it was safe to do so on the streets of his upmarket Berlin neighbourhood.

He said he filmed the attack as evidence "for the police and for the German people and even the world to see how terrible it is these days as a Jew to go through Berlin streets".
"I'm not Jewish, I'm Israeli," he said. "I grew up in Israel in an Arabic family and I think that it was an experience for me to wear the kippa."

The video shows the attacker shouting "yahudi", Jew in Arabic, and later a bruise on Adam's torso.

I note that the victim is an Israeli Arab who chose to wear a kippah because he's pissed off about antisemitism.

Contrary to what the fake "woman's march" and other antisemitic groups will tell you, Arabs in Israel are full citizens, free to practice whatever religion they want (or no religion). In fact, Israeli Arabs are the highest educated and wealthiest Arabs in the Middle East (and, in fact, Christian Arabs in Israel are the wealthiest group of people in Israel). So much for "Israeli apartheid" and other lies.

Truly, this brave man is righteous among the nations

Murder of elderly woman in Paris probed as anti-Semitic

March 26, 2018

http://www.fox5ny.com/news/murder-in-paris-probed-as-anti-semitic

By: Associated Press

French authorities say the killing of an elderly Jewish woman in Paris is being investigated as an anti-Semitic murder. The woman, identified in French media as Mireille Knoll, was stabbed at least 11 times and her body was set on fire.

The Paris prosecutor's office said Monday two suspects have been put in custody. It said it is asking investigating judges to charge the pair with premeditated murder of a vulnerable person for anti-Semitic motives.

The office also asked for the suspects to be jailed pending trial.

Leading Jewish group CRIF said the 85-year-old woman was slain last week in Paris' eastern 11th district. The victim had reportedly escaped a round-up of Jews in Paris during World War II. The group says a neighbor who had previously made anti-Semitic statements was one of the people under arrest. They didn't confirm reports that the man was Muslim.

CRIF asked for "utmost transparency in the ongoing investigation so that the reasons for this barbaric crime are known to everyone as soon as possible."

The group plans a rally in her memory and support of her family on Wednesday.

The body was found the same day a gunmen killed several people in an attack on a supermarket in southern France.

++++++++

Just another one of those daily "isolated" anti-Semitic attacks in Europe.

Please remove head from sand; I've been through this before.

Paris Taxi Driver Tried To Kill Jewish Passenger

The original of this article (with video) is here:

http://www.maariv.co.il/news/world/Article-628435

It's in Hebrew, so I will more-or-less summarize.

An Jewish tourist visiting his brother in Paris has claimed that a taxi driver in the French capital threatened to slit his throat after realizing that he was a Jewish.

The Jewish man, Ronen Edri, took a taxi to visit his brother in Paris. The radio was very loud, so Edri asked the driver to turn down the radio so he could give him the address. The driver responded "Who are you? What do you think you are? You do not live here! you have no rights here! You are not even the owner of this vehicle!”

He said the driver then cursed at him and yelled, “I will show you what Muslims do to Jews.”

The driver made a phone call in French. Edri recorded the side of the conversation he could hear. The driver said, “this son of a whore, I’m going to cut his throat in my car.”

The taxi driver would not stop and pulled out a knife. Edri then jumped out of the car and broke his ankle.

Anti-hijab protesters defy Iranian authorities after the arrest of nearly 30 women

Anti-hijab protesters defy Iranian authorities after the arrest of nearly 30 women for not wearing headscarves

Daily Mail (UK) February 6, 2018

By: Alistair Tancred



Protests against the compulsory wearing of hijabs in Iran have continued despite the arrests earlier this week of 29 women for appearing in public without a headscarf.

Symbolic protests took place throughout the country this week with women posting videos and photographs on social media of themselves standing on utility boxes, street sidewalks and other public places as they defiantly waved their hijabs.

Chief Prosecutor Mohammad Jafar Montazeri played down the escalating protests on Wednesday, saying they were 'trivial' and 'childish' moves possibly incited by foreigners.





The defiance of the women comes as an influential Iranian activist said that disquiet over the hijab showed that women are symbolically rejecting the wider 'interference of religion' in their lives.

'We are fighting against the most visible symbol of oppression,' said Masih Alinejad, who hosts the website My Stealthy Freedom where women in Iran post photos of themselves without hijabs.

Under Iran's Islamic law, imposed after the 1979 revolution, women are obliged to cover their hair with a scarf, known as a hijab, and wear long, loose-fitting clothes. Violators are publicly admonished, fined or arrested.

'These women are saying, 'It is enough - it is the 21st century and we want to be our true selves,'' the Iranian activist told the Thomson Reuters Foundation.

Iranian police said on Thursday that 29 women who took part in the campaign had been arrested in Iran for protesting against the country's compulsory hijab rules, the semi-official Tasnim news agency reported.

Those arrested were accused of public order offences and referred to the state prosecutor's office, Iranian media reported.

Alinejad said the protests picked up momentum after video and images were posted online of a woman waving a white scarf on a stick in December - a day before demonstrations erupted against economic conditions in eastern Iran.

Unrest quickly spread across the country and the focus broadened as protesters began calling for Iran's supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, to step down.

The video went viral as police cracked down, and Alinejad said the woman was arrested. She has since been released, according to a Facebook post by Iranian human rights lawyer Nasrin Sotoudeh.

On Monday, a woman named locally as Nargess Hosseini, was arrested after standing on an electricity box in central Tehran, waving her head scarf in front of her.

Journalist and campaigner Masih Alinejad, the founder of the White Wednesdays and My Stealthy Freedom movements, which fights the compulsory hijab in Iran, has claimed that Ms Hosseini's bail has been set at a record-high level to detain others from protesting.

'While the law imposes a maximum of $12 or two months of jail time, the court has recently asked for a bail of $125,000 to release one of the newly detained women,' Ms Alinejad tweeted Thursday.

A prominent human rights lawyer told AFP on Tuesday that one of the detained women had her bail set at more than $100,000 (80,000 euros).

lthough the wider anti-government demonstrations have ended, women across Iran are 'fed up' and continue to protest against 'the interference of religion in our personal lives', said the activist.

Alinejad said she is now flooded with videos and photos of women imitating the viral video and she shares them on the My Stealthy Freedom Twitter account and Facebook page.

'These people are not fighting against a piece of cloth, they are fighting against the ideology behind compulsory hijab,' said Alinejad, who called the movement the 'true face of feminism'.

Puerto Ricos Biggest Newspaper: The U.S. Hasnt Helped Us Because Of The Jew

The Forward
January 10, 2018
By: Jeffrey Boxer


It has been nearly three months since Hurricane Maria devastated Puerto Rico, and the island’s recovery has been slow. The U.S. territory is struggling with shortages of food and medical supplies, and a full 45% of residents still don’t have power.

San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz blames Washington for failing to devote adequate resources to Puerto Rico’s recovery — she recently dubbed President Trump the “disaster-in-chief”. But a journalist for El Nuevo Día, the newspaper with the largest circulation in Puerto Rico, has found a different culprit: “the Jew.”

Columnist Wilda Rodríguez wrote a piece on Monday, titled “What Does ‘The Jew’ Want From The Colony?” According to Rodríguez, it is “Wall Street types,” not politicians, that dictate U.S. policy. And, who are the power brokers on Wall Street?

“In the end, Congress will do what ‘the Jew’ wants, as the vulgar prototype of true power is called,” she wrote.

Rodríguez added a disclaimer: “No offense to people of that religion.” She even argued that the term is a source of pride for Israeli Jews.

“More than 20 years ago, the Israeli paper Ma’ariv had an article in Hebrew that explained how the Jews control Washington,” she wrote. “For Israelis, recognizing Jewish power over Washington is not an offensive statement. It is the victory of the Diaspora.”

What does ‘the Jew’ want? Rodriguez believes that Wall Street is punishing Puerto Ricans because of the island’s $70 billion debt. “That we could get away without paying would be fatal to Wall Street morale,” she wrote. “The punishment needs to make it clear to the debtor world that Wall Street cannot be manipulated.”

El Nuevo Día has since added an editorial note to the top of the article that apologizes to the island’s Jewish community, adding, “we do not promote content that can be interpreted as anti-Semitic.”

Muslim Citizen of Jewish State: Israel Is not an Apartheid Nation, Im Proud to Speak on Its Behalf

The Algemeiner
By: Staff
Date: 10/18/2017


“Israel is not an apartheid state and anyone who believes this should be ashamed of himself,” a Muslim citizen of the Jewish state declared in a recent media interview — a video of which has gone viral online this week.

Appearing on an Arabic-language news channel, Dema Taya — a resident of the central Israeli city of Qalansawe — told the program host, “You live in this country and enjoy the full benefits of its citizenship. You are free to work, study, express yourselves and whatever you desire. You lead and educate the next generations in a state that respects you. Look at Syria, Iraq, Egypt and the rest of the Arab countries. What have they done for the good of their people?”

Taya is currently in the US as part of a delegation conducting a speaking tour organized by Reservists on Duty to tell the stories of Israel’s minority communities.

“I’m proud to stand up and speak for Israel and that I’m an integrated part of it,” Taya said in the interview.

Islamic state claims Las Vegas shooting, says attacker recently convert to Islam

Source: Reuters

CAIRO (Reuters) - Islamic State has claimed responsibility for a shooting that killed at least 50 people and wounded over 400 in Las Vegas early on Monday, and said the attacker had converted to Islam a few months ago.

“The Las Vegas attack was carried out by a soldier of the Islamic State and he carried it out in response to calls to target states of the coalition,” the group’s news agency Amaq said in reference to the U.S.-led coalition fighting the group in the Middle East.

“The Las Vegas attacker converted to Islam a few months ago,” Amaq added.

Strikes me as a bit opportunistic on the part of ISIS. I don't see a 64 year old itinerant gambler as being a likely Islam convert.

But you never know.
