1939 is back!

Something is terribly wrong in France. I am working on a few pieces about this. Unfortunately I have been without Internet for a week and blogging from my Smartphone for long posts is less than ideal. Hoping to be up and running again tomorrow. In the interim please visit BCF and Laura Rosen Cohen (endofyourarm.com) for updates on the deteriorating situation in France and elsewhere.

Cherish Life

The past few weeks have seen some very dark days.  There is much evil in the world, and we must fight this evil with every ounce of our beings.  If we cannot continue to live life, love life, cherish life, then evil has already won.

The sun is shining here.  The air is warm.  My family is well.  This weekend we will take time to celebrate life.

Grad Rocket Attack Kills 23 in Ukraine

Rusty says:  I wish the Ukrainians all the luck in the world in taking back territory lost by Putin's brownshirts, but I just wanted to also say thank God for the Iron Dome (90% success rate!) and, of course Palestinian incompetence!

Amen brother!

The Appeasement Police

It is old news now that last week’s protest, organized by the Jewish Defense League, outside Palestine House in Mississauga, Ontario turned violent.  Not surprising is the non-event this was for the media, with the exception of Ezra Levant, an article in the National Post, and a small blurb on CP24.  Equally unsurprising is the reaction of Peel Police.  The only people arrested on the scene were there to support Israel, and the force has subsequently stated: It appears that these two parties had opposing views and were voicing their opinions in a public forum and unfortunately brought fighting to the streets of Mississauga.”  Two parties with opposing views.   How quaint Constable Ruttan.  While it is plausible there was some pushing and shoving from both sides, the assault with a weapon that took place and sent a Jewish man to the hospital via ambulance was clearly one sided.  Charges should be laid and the suspect should have been arrested or at the very least detained by police. 

This lack of police response is at best their idea of diffusing a situation, at worst a cynical attempt to appease Palestine House.  Either way, Peel Police have shown complete and total ignorance of the dynamics at play and this is dangerous.  At a time when tensions are extremely high, and anti-Semitic attacks are popping up around the globe, “Jewish blood on the streets of Toronto” cannot be ignored.  Appeasement policing, which seems to be the preferred method of crowd control used by Ontario police forces, will only encourage further violence.  These protests, be they pro or anti-Israel, will escalate in size.  Sadly, this violence and the lack of consequences will read as an open invitation for those looking to escalate violence at a future protest.  There was a whiff of indignation when police stated that only twice before in the force’s history had they been forced to call out such numbers (30-40 officers) – ie. Why can’t those Jews just stay away?  But this also seems like amateur hour and suggests that Peel Police have almost zero experience with this type of violence.


Several years ago I covered a vigil outside the Israeli Embassy in London, organized by the Jewish community, in support of Operation Cast Lead.  Let me tell you how police there deal with these types of situations: Riot barricades were set up where supporters of Israel entered (like a pen) after going through a security check to make sure they were not actually there to hurt Jews.  When it became known that hundreds of London’s ample anti-Israel crowd were going to show up, a separate barricade was set up and a SWAT vehicle (not a car – a bullet proof miniature tank) was parked between the two barricades along with hundreds of police in full riot gear.  This was not to stop Israel’s supporters from getting out of hand – it was to protect them from the mob of blood thirty anti-Semites who showed up and screamed death threats at them while waving Hamas and Hezbollah flags.  When the pro-Israel demonstration was over, its participants left under police escort, again for their own protection.  Then a funny thing happened – the anti-Israel crowd did not leave.  Instead, they stayed around to firebomb Starbucks, smash the windows of local businesses, and attack police.  Several police officers were injured, including an officer who was knocked unconscious and beaten.  However, this was not enough to satisfy they crowds.  Later that night Jewish businesses in North London were vandalized.  The sidewalks in another neighbourhood were painted with JIHAD 4 JEWS.  


As Laura Rosen Cohen observes, attacks against Jews elsewhere always find imitators in North America.  It is only a matter of time.  Blood has been spilled, and police should not underestimate the blood lust of anti-Semitic hooligans residing in Canada.

York Region Police: it really is a banana republic

Paging Pamela Geller....
This is what the YRP is up to when theyre not threatening Rabbis who invite you to speak at their synagogue.

Where have I been?

A few people have asked so.....
No, I was not on a supersekrit Zionist antijihad mission for the past 3 years, although that would make a great post.  For awhile I was commuting back and forth between Canada and the UK while working and writing a book, which left me with little to no time for SMW.  Then I expanded the family, which resulted in even less SMW time.  We are back in North America for the time being.  There are so many great bloggers here (Blazing Cat Fur, Laura Rosen Cohen, Kathy Shaidle, etc.) that I was not feeling any great urge to get back on the keyboard.  Lately there seems to be a lot of evil going around and this is one of the ways that I know to fight it - and so SMW is back.  The format will be slightly different then before.  Stay tuned...

The Death of Klinghoffer and the Justification of Terror

Much has been written about the New York Metropolitan Opera’s upcoming production of The Death of Klinghoffer.  Originally slated to broadcast in theatres around the world, the Met bowed to public pressure and agreed to “cancel” the production – or at least this is what was widely reported.  What they have done in fact is agree to cancel the broadcast – not the production.  The Death of Klinghoffer is still scheduled to run this November at the Met.  The opera is based on events surrounding the murder of Leon Klinghoffer, a wheelchair bound American Jew who was shot by terrorists and subsequently thrown overboard the Achille Lauro, an Italian cruise ship on which he was vacationing with his wife in 1985.  On its website, the Met describes this terrorist attack as a “tragic incident.”  The opera presents a sympathetic view of the terrorist hijackers who killed Klinghoffer in cold blood, while reinforcing numerous anti-Semitic stereotypes.   John Adams, the composer is quoted as saying, “there are reasons why a terrorist behaves the way he or she does”, and the opera certainly implies that the reason a terrorist behaves the way he or she does it not genocidal motives, but rather because of their suffering at the hands of the Jews.  What they are saying is, yes terrorism is bad but those Jews were asking for it.  This opera presents far more justification than it does understanding.   Adams and his colleague Alice Goodman have included lyrics such as:

Let the supplanter look
Upon his work.  Our faith
Will
Take the stones he broke
And break his teeth.

The day that I
And my enemy
Sit peacefully
Each putting his case
And working towards peace,
That day our hope dies
And I shall die too.  (this lyric is sung by one of the terrorists)

Wherever poor men
Are gathered they can
Find Jews getting fat
You know how tocheat
The simple, exploit
The virgin pollute

While ancient slanders and stereotypes against Jews are reinforced, the terrorists are described as men of ideals.  This opera recalls an era not so long ago when anti-Semitic propaganda was filling theatres, and museums across Europe.  Le Juif et la France, an exposition held at several museums in Paris was not described as anti-Semitic at the time, but rather as an educational tool to help the French understand the risks the Jews allegedly posed to society.  This propaganda was used to dehumanize Jews and rationalize their extermination.  Anti-Semitic propaganda has been used through the ages to justify the terror and murder of Jews.  While some Jewish organizations have spoken out against the Met’s decision to run The Death of Klinghoffer, it is still scheduled to run and the response from outside the Jewish community has been extremely muted – except for those speaking in support of the opera. 

It is disturbing, that in 2014 an NBA team owner who makes racist, abhorrent comments in private can be ostracized and shamed by the media, but the public production of an opera which justifies acts of terror while demonizing Jews is met with silence by the public at large.  Every individual involved in this opera, from the writers, to the Met, to the actors, needs to be shamed.


One has to wonder if Goodman and Adams woke up this morning and thought, “Finally – new material!”…..coming to the Met in 2020: The Deaths of Shaer, Yifrah, and Frankel.

Nazi Suspect Will not be Extradited Due to "Technicality"

It is a popular idea that the Nazis got what they deserved after the Holocaust.  Not really true.  Perhaps because many people confuse the bombing of Germany (ie Dresden), the division of Germany, etc. with punishing the Nazis.  Not true either.  A great many Nazis left Germany, Hungary, Austria and went on to live wonderful happy lives in South America, the US, parts of the Middle East and Europe.  The idea that they were appropriately punished is a myth - first of all because what appropriate punishment is there for the heinous acts they committed?  Second, because they just moved somewhere else and lived new lives, something their 6 million plus victims never got to do.

Case in point:
Charles Zentai, now 90, was accused by Hungarian authorities of beating to death a Jewish teenager, Peter Balazs, in Budapest in 1944.
Australia's highest court ruled that Zentai could not be extradited to the country of his birth because the offense "war crime" did not exist in Hungarian law at the time the murder was alleged to have been committed.

Well Australia isn't exactly know for its stellar record of ousting Nazis:
Australia has never convicted a Nazi war criminal, even though hundreds found sanctuary there after the war. A special unit set up by the federal government in 1987 investigated 841 suspects. It was shut down in 1992 without a single successful conviction.

Hey speaking of AlQuds day - how about dinner at a Toronto Rec Centre to celebrate our hatred of Israel?

These people must just sit back and laugh at the stupidity of Westerners.

Well well well CASMO, our local Muslim David Duke Aficionados are putting on an Al-Quds Day Dinner at The Centennial Recreation Centre, a City Owned venue.

The use of Government facilities is a deliberate strategy by the Khomeinist Anti-Semites to present the public veneer that they are just another ethnic group.


Check it out at BCF.

Transport for London Happy to Promote JewHate Day

This should not come as a surprise to anyone with a clue. The groups said that while the ad campaign on more than 400 London buses described the annual Al-Quds Day march as an event about "the freedom of the Palestinians", the organisation founding the event posted anti-Israel comments on its website. TfL claims it is reviewing its policy and that the ad campaign ends shortly anyway. And guess what.....part of this ad campaign involves soliciting donations for the Islamic Human Rights Commission. Using TfL to raise money for some unholy causes - no wonder people believe infidels are stupid. A quick visit to the IHRC website will show you the supporting organizations of London's Al Quds rally, organizations I have written about extensively in the past such as Stop the War, Innovative Minds, the Muslim Council of Britain, etc. Here is the head of this group - Massoud Shadjareh - at last year's Al Quds rally in London - reminding everyone that "the Zionists are waiting in the shadows" and that people should not give "even a penny" to Israeli businesses, or even people who support Israeli businesses. IHRC is the same group that campaigns for Muslim prisoners across the globe and has a bleeding heart for convicted cop killer and American Islamic leader Jamil Al Amin, currently in a US prison and the subject of an IHRC campaign called Prisoners of Faith. The IHRC is sanctioned and funded by the UN. Need I say more? Probably not, but I will.... One of the IHRC's current projects is "Muslim Experiences: Canada 2012." Yep, they are doing a UN funded study to determine how hated Muslims are in Canada. However, the study isn't really needed given that the questionnaire is sub titled with "Being a Member of a Hated Society." And there you have it folks. Anti Israel ads and requests for donations that are sure to fund some unsavoury activities, run by a group sanctioned by the UN that hearts cop killers, and posted freely by Transport for London on its buses across the city. Britain is beyond repair.

Underground Islamic Sect

This is just weird. Some of the children, aged between 1 and 17, have never seen daylight, health officials said. The sect's 83-year-old founder Faizrakhman Satarov, who declared himself a Muslim prophet in contradiction with the principles of Islam, has also been charged with negligence, Irina Petrova, deputy prosecutor in the provincial capital of Kazan, told The Associated Press. No members of the sect, who call themselves "muammin" after the Arabic term that means "believers," have been arrested, she said. The children were discovered last week when police searched the sect grounds as part of a probe into the recent killing of a top Tatarstan Muslim cleric, an attack local officials blame on radical Islamist groups that have mushroomed in the oil-rich, Volga River province. Satarov, a former top imam in the neighboring province of Bashkortostan, declared his house outside Kazan an independent Islamic state. He ordered some 70 followers to live in cells they dug under the three-story building topped by a small minaret with a tin crescent moon. Only a few sect members were allowed to leave the premises to work as traders at a local market

Heading Stateside

Getting ready to head out for some time in the US of A. Expect updates beginning early next week.

Who said Justice was swift? Hundreds of trials still to come over UK riots

Evening Standard: Hundreds of people accused of being involved in the London riots have still not faced justice. As the first anniversary of the violence approaches, it emerged there could be at least 600 cases yet to deal with. With more than 3,000 prosecutions launched over the riots, this means at least 20 per cent of people charged during the trouble have not faced trial. I remember last summer pretty vividly. I remember chatting with a Red Cross worker (they were in fact deployed during the riots to help Londoners) and hearing how two blocks from my house rioters were trying to set cars on fire........with passengers inside of them. Animals.
