Fact 234: "On May 19 2002, an explosion at the only synagogue in Quebec City damaged the front door and shattered glass, but caused no injuries. One man was arrested in connection with the blast apparently caused by an incendiary device at the vacant synagogue in the capital of Quebec, Canada's Francophone province. The explosion was one in a series of attacks on synagogues in Canada in 2002, including a fire at a downtown Toronto synagogue that damaged 2,000 religious texts, some dating to the 1860s."

The Evening Standard (www.thisislondon.co.uk) has published an article that shows how some English Muslims are completely brainwashed and have joined the fascist Muslim movement that has declared Jihad ("Holy War") against Western Democracies:
Four young British Muslims in their twenties - a social worker, an IT specialist, a security guard and a financial adviser - occupy a table at a fast-food chicken restaurant in Luton. Perched on their plastic chairs, wolfing down their dinner, they seem just ordinary young men. Yet out of their mouths pour heated words of revolution.
It is clear that not all Muslims are fascist, racist and violent bastards. But it also clear that some are freaks who wish for the destructions of Israel, the United States and other Western Democracies, and would not hesitate in murdering millions.
I receive a lot of death threats and hate mail from such British Muslims and I find it outrageous that these brainwashed morons enjoy the rights of the very Democracies they wish to destroy.

Ha'aretz (www.haaretzdaily.com) reports that an Israeli Arab Muslim tried to hijack an El Al (Israel's airline) plane:
Alert security guards and passengers prevented a possible hijacking Sunday evening of an El Al flight from Israel en route to Istanbul after an Israeli Arab tried to stab a stewardess and rush the cockpit. [...]
There are about one million Arab Muslims who are citizens of Israel and have the right to vote and political parties of their own - see the Democracy page for details.
Unfortunately in the last few months a certain number of these Arab Muslims, citizens of Israel, turned to terrorism. I copy the full article below.
The Washington Times (www.washingtontimes.com) has published an article that describes how Israel has arrested and brought to trial Marwan Barghouti, Arafat's "security" chief, responsible for many terrorist attacks that killed hundreds of Israeli and American unarmed civilians and injured thousands.
By the middle of October 2000, Mr. Barghouti had become the head of a joint coordinating body including all of the leading Palestinian radical groups: Fatah; Hamas; Islamic Jihad and the PFLP. The groups began working together in carrying out attacks on Israelis.

Le site DesInfos.com a publie une traduction d'un article parut dans le journal Israelien "Yediot Aharonot" qui decrit comment les Palestiniens sont responsables de leur sort.
La deuxième Nekba palestinienne (catastrophe)
Guy Bechor (Yediot Aharonot) - traduit par le service de
presse de l'Ambassade de France en Israël.
Voilà plus de 54 ans que les Palestiniens crient au scandale de leur pays spolié et qu’ils accusent les Juifs, Israël, les Britanniques, les Nations Unies et les Etats arabes, prenant un soin tout particulier à s’épargner et à apparaître “ blancs comme neige ”.
The "Middle East Media Research Institute" (www.memri.org) has published a video translating content from the Arab media so we can hear for ourselves what Hamas, a terrorist organization currently in power in Palestinian Gaza, is all about:
I wonder what would happen if one Israeli or American politician used such language? I hope CNN, the European media and other biased sources show this video, but I seriously doubt this will ever happen. The war on Hamas, the Palestinian Islamic Jihad and other Islamic fanatics continues.
I copy below more information on how you can share this video with others.
USA Today (www.chron.com) has a good article on how certain Mathematicians are attempting to use abstract theories to fight the mass murdering Islamic Supremacists from Al-Qaeda and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad:
"[...] A small group of thinking men and women convened at Rutgers University last month to consider how order theory — a branch of abstract mathematics that deals with hierarchical relationships — could be applied to the war on terrorism. [...]
I copy the full article below. Found the original story on the cool Israely Cool blog.
The Jerusalem Post (www.jpost.com) reports that the Palestinian terrorist group Islamic Jihad blew up a a car stuffed with over 220 pounds of explosives next to a bus in northern Israel, murdering 15 people and wounding over 50. A 2-year-old and a 4-year-old kid are critically injured, still fighting for their lives.
The Palestinian Islamic Jihad
Deliberately murdered 15 people,
trapped inside the bus
"I cannot forget what I saw today people were burned alive inside my bus," said driver Haim Avraham, who escaped with light wounds.
Let's hope the victims recover soon and that the murderers from the Palestinian Islamic Jihad get what they deserve.
I copy the full article below and another article that describes the murders as well.
Reuters AlertNet (www.alertnet.org) reports that Israel is ready to retaliate if Iraq chooses to fire Scud missiles targetting Israeli civilians.
Israel is more able to retaliate against Iraqi missile attacks now than during the 1991 Gulf War and has prepared new intelligence and anti-missile defence systems, an Israeli politician said on Monday.
Iraq launched dozens of Scud missiles against Israel after the US first attack on Iraq during the Gulf war. Yasser Arafat fully supported Iraq during the 1991 Gulf War and many Palestinians were seen dancing on their roofs while the Scuds were landing in the Israeli cities. Israel never retaliated.
I lived in Haifa in 1991 when I was attending college at the Technion, Israel's Institute of Technology (similar to MIT).
There was much fear that Sadam Hussein was going to launch gas attacks against the Israeli civilian population so daily, during every attack from Iraq, all civilians, including kids, babies and women had to wear gas masks and run to the bomb shelter.

The Jerusalem Post (www.jpost.com) reports that the US Ambassador to Israel, Daniel Kurtzer, is disappointed in Arafat's handling of Palestinian terror. Arafat has done nothing to stop the Islamic Jihad, the Hamas, and his own terrorist groups, such as the Al-Aqsa martyr's brigade and the Tanzim, from killing unarmed Israeli civilians.
"Disappointing sounds like too weak a word... It has been abysmal in terms of using the resources at his disposal the PA's police, security forces, and intelligence apparatus to stop this kind of activity," he said.
Yesterday's homicide/suicide attack that killed a Grandmother and her 1.5 year old granddaughter was perpetrated by the murderers of the Al-Aqsa's brigade, a Palestinian terrorist group that directly reports to Arafat.
The official US position still is that Arafat is not a terrorist, but even though I disagree, at this point it doesn't really matter. In either scenario (Arafat is a terrorist or an incapable buffoon) Israel's military response to stop Palestinian terror is completely justified. In both cases Islamic fundamentalists who are only interested in killing unarmed civilians and destroying the State of Israel should be stopped.

The Jerusalem Post (www.jpost.com) reports that a mass murderer from the Palestinian Islamic Jihad has blown himself in a two-story Jerusalem bus, killing 18 and injuring over 100 Israelis:
Paramedics try to revive an Israeli baby
after a mass murderer from the Palestinian
group 'Islamic Jihad' blows himself in a bus
A suicide bomber blew himself up onboard a bus in Jerusalem at about 9:15pm on Tuesday, killing at least 18 people and wounding scores, many among them children.
Israeli radio reports that there were many children killed and injured in this massacre - including a one month baby who lies in critical condition, alone; the hospistal staff does not know who and where are his parents.
Israeli radio also reports that the government of Israel has frozen all diplomatic talks with the Palestinians - in any case it is clear the Israeli army will not leave the 4 West Bank cities as planned, and control of these cities will not be handed over to Arafat's murderers as agreed last week. I also just heard that the alert level of the IDF (Israel's army) has been raised. The IDF is now just one level under total mobilization.

The Jerusalem Post (www.jpost.com) reports that Andrew Cuomo, a candidate for governor of New York, declared that the Palestinian Authority (Arafat's make shift government in the West Bank and Gaza), should be defined as a foreign terrorist organization.
"I have told the Secretary of State [Colin Powell] that it is my belief that the PA should be added to the list of foreign terror organizations," Cuomo said Thursday during a visit to the bombed-out cafeteria at the Mount Scopus campus of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
More and more people are realizing how much Arafat and his thugs from the Palestinian Authority finance, organize and support the deliberate murder of unarmed civilians, including babies and children.
The evidence is so overwhelming that you have to be an European leftist or an American ultra-liberal to continue in denying that Arafat is a terrorist. Arafat and the PA are no different than the Hamas, the Palestinian Islamic Jihad and the Hizbullah who are proud of murdering babies and unarmed civilians.

Le Monde (www.lemonde.fr) a publie un article qui montre comment Israel n'utilise pas toute sa force lorqu'elle reagit aujourd'hui contre les attaques du Hamas et du Jihad Islamique Palestinien.
Durant la première guerre mondiale, l'Allemagne a utilisé le gaz moutarde contre les tranchées françaises, il n'a pas fallu attendre longtemps pour que la France fasse de même. Durant la seconde guerre mondiale, les Allemands ont bombardé les villes anglaises. Dès que les Anglais en ont eu les moyens, c'est-à-dire la maîtrise du ciel, ils ont bombardé les villes allemandes tout comme les Américains, qui ont aussi tué dans les bombardements contre des usines d'armement en France des centaines, sinon des milliers, de Français innocents. Durant cette période, les Français craignaient bien plus les avions alliés que les SS ou la Gestapo.

I received the following message from Michal Karel Petelczyz (firstname.lastname@example.org):
"You jews ARE "pigs and monkeys", and the sooner the Palestinians all their land libertae and jewish swine vermin exterminate , the better. You jews too much world opinion control and distort it to portray yourselves as victims. The sooner a virus that targets and kills juden is developed and shipped the better. Das Welt - Judenfrei, bitte. You are a filthy, inbred race, that has caused havoc throughout the history of the world and the quicker to all you swine death comes, the besser will it be. Stinking Schwein!"
Normally I would just ignore such filth since I receive many racist and anti-Semitic messages.
What makes this incident regretful is that Mrs. Michal Karel Petelczyz sent her message from a computer belonging to Australia's department of Defence.
I traced back her message to the IP address - 18.104.22.168 - which corresponds to a computer that belongs to Australia's Department of Defence - the server defepx01.defence.gov.au .
I doubt the name and email addresses are valid but the IP address is and if someone from Australia's Department of Defence shows some cooperation we will be able to locate this rabid anti-Semite and hopefully Australia's Dof will take some action.

The Jerusalem Post (www.jpost.com) reports that Palestinian murderers have killed again:
A couple from the Jewish community of Eli were killed last night when Palestinian terrorists shot at their car on the Ramallah-Nablus road, near Shilo, Israel Radio reports.
The Jerusalem Post (www.jpost.com) has a good analysis by Prof. Dershowitz on how Israel will ignore the decision made by the International Kangaroo Court of the Hague. This group of clown judges has decided that Israel's security fence is "against the law":
The Supreme Court of Israel recognized the unquestionable reality that the security fence has saved numerous lives and promises to save more, but it also recognized that this benefit must be weighed against the material disadvantages to West Bank Palestinians. The International Court, on the other hand, discounted the saving of lives and focused only on the Palestinian interests. By showing its preference for Palestinian property rights over the lives of Jews, the International Court displayed its bigotry.
I, and most Israelis, accuse the judges sitting in the Hague of never standing up for the Israeli children who are deliberately murdered by mass murdering bastards from the Palestinian Islamic Jihad and Hamas.
This decision has made it very clear: while the International Kangaroo Court of Justice holds us to certain standards, the same brain dead judges from the Hague never hold the Palestinians responsible for deliberately murdering and slaughtering Israeli women and children.
I, and most Israelis, will ignore what the International Kangaroo Court of Justice has decided. I, and most Israelis, will do everything we can to stop the barbaric Islamic mass murderers from the Islamic Jihad and Arafat's Al-Aksa Brigades. I, and most Israelis are tired of this hypocrisy from the United Nations and Europe - how can people that do not live under Islamic terror judge Israel who has to face Palestinian barbarism on a daily basis?
Since Israel has started building its security fence the Palestinian mass murderers have had a much harder time in executing their homicide bombings. For more details, including a graph that shows how the number of homicide bombings has decreased, click here or here. The fence has saved many lives already and it's definitely here to stay.
