Montreal newspaper glorifies stabbing attacks against Israelis

Jonathan D. HaleviRebel Blogger Mike Fan

On November 22, 2015, Israeli citizens and IDF soldiers foiled a stabbing attack committed by 16 year old Ashraqat Taha Ahmed Qatanani resident of Nablus. A driver who noticed the Palestinian female teenager trying to stab Israelis with a kitchen knife rammed his vehicle into the terrorist.

Talking to Hezbollah’s Al-Manar website, Taha Al-Qatanani, father of Ashraqat and an operative of the terrorist organization the Islamic Jihad, said that he gave her the name “Ashraqat Palestine” (meaning Palestine has shined) “after her martyrdom” adding that “she inherited the love of the resistance [euphemism for the terrorist organization Hezbollah] and the love of Sayyed [Hassan] Nasrallah [leader of Hezbollah] from me.”

Al-Manar website reported that “Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah phoned the Palestinian martyr Ashraqat al-Qatanani’s father to congratulate him on the martyrdom of his young daughter.”

The bi-weekly magazine Sada al-Mashrek is printed in Montreal and distributed for free in Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto, Hamilton and Windsor. Its co-founder and editor is Hussein Hoballah (حسين حب الله) and the editorial board included in 2013 Hussein Yusuf (حسين يوسف), Ali Hassan Sabiti (علي حسن سبيتي) and Khadija Abu Abduallah (خديجة ابو عبد الله).

Sada al-Mashrek’s representatives were Ahmed Harish (أحمد هريش) in Ottawa (Tel. 613.262.0060), Ibrahim Yassin (ابراهيم ياسين) in Toronto (Tel. 416.543.9513), Hassan Harb (حسن حرب) in Hamilton (Tel. 905.746.7932) and Ali Awad (علي عواد) in Windsor (Tel. 519.992.9929). The head office is located at 5201 Rue Jean Talon East Montreal Quebec H1S 1K8.

The editorial Sada al-Mashrek (Issue 412, December 1, 2015, P. 1) was dedicated to Ashraqat Qatanani a.k.a Ashraqat Palestine. The following are excerpts of the editorial (originally in Arabic):

“The extent of the Zionist crimes… is gravest and more heinous than [the crimes committed] in Syria, Iraq, Yemen, Nigeria, Paris and Beirut. That’s why a new [Palestinian] generation rebelled and the [Israeli] occupation is unable to prove its connection to any of the Palestinian forces.

“[The new generation] rebelled in order to redirect the compass of the conflict towards the original issue and to remind the world that the source of the problems in the region is the [Israeli] occupation and that the inflicted injustice on the people of Palestine is resulted in creating a feeling of rage, ire, suffering of seeking refuge, deprivation, poverty, destitution and humiliation that creates people who are ready to join any raging Takfiri [Sunni Muslim who accuses another Muslim of apostasy] group [implying mainly to ISIS] which takes advantage of their feelings and direct them to channels which do not serve whatsoever their just cause.

The 16 year old Palestinian teenager, Ashraqat Taha Qatanani (اشرقت طه قطناني), is a role model to this generation that is proud of the muqawama [Hezbollah] in Lebanon… and affiliates itself psychologically and intellectually with the leadership which brings about, by people like them, the dignity and the victory even with modest capabilities such as hurling stones, stabbing, running over or any other modest action.

“Nevertheless, these actions express will and determination to resist the [Israeli] occupation and sincerity and dedication that derive them [the new Palestinian generation] to the death at the prime of their youth that projects freshness, vitality and love of life.

“The name Ashraqat contains wonderful connotations and meanings suggesting that the sun of Palestine will rise again… Ashraqat is a sufficient and appropriate answer to whom it concerns that the [Israeli] occupation is in its way to disappear. Ashraqat was killed by the fire of the [Israeli] occupation but the glimmer of hope for freedom was not lost because of the spirit of Ashraqat as a tribute for Palestine.”

According to the Israel’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, from September 13, 2015 to January 27, 2016 the number of people murdered in the Palestinian terrorist intifada reached 30 and 291 people were injured (26 of them seriously). The Palestinian new wave of terrorism included 113 stabbings, 39 shootings and 22 car rammings in addition to firing rockets (from Gaza), detonating explosive charges, and many thousands incidents of stone throwing and firebombings.

I don’t know how to stand up against people who willfully believe in lies, hate, prejudice, and are prepared to kill innocent Israeli’s. I support Israel. I suppose Israel has its faults but how can you begin to see them in the midst of the disgusting and hateful attacks perpetrated on the people of this small but noble country.
I have recently been learning a bit about Israel’s war for independence (1948), the six days war (1967), and the Yom Kipur war (1973). If you have an irrational hatred for Jews and the state of Israel then you should check your moral compass and go see a psychiatrist. If you plan on attacking Israel or trying to destroy this nation and its people you might want to consider its recent establishment and victories over its enemies. Maybe, just maybe, these are special people. Maybe, that is also why they are hated so much.

Thats all they are saying? Wow. Did you watch that vid? I don’t understand how anyone can go down the moral relativist road with these savages.

This is exactly why we need a leader with a clear and decisive stance in support of Israel ,like Harper had. Trudeau is yet again disgracing the country and what we stand for. Shameful.

Charles. How dare you defend these monsters. You don’t like this country – GET OUT!!!

Hello Chris Kealey, They are not saying kill people, they are saying please kill the people that want to kill us. That is all they are saying.

" By Allah we will use it to turn you into body parts", that’s not what I call a religion of peace. They are being told to kill Jews from the time they go to nursery school, when they are read a bedtime story. Hate and kill, its all they know. It is being spread here.

I’m all for free speech but there is something called hate speech and it’s illegal in this country. If telling people to go out and kill someone because of their religion isn’t hate speech I don’t know what is. This website should be shut down and the people who run it arrested.

With Harper it was clear to Israel where Canada stood. With Trudeau, not so much. Imported hatred and violence on our own streets is what we will get.

Kudos to the driver who ran her down the stupid twat. More Palestinians should meet this end. They are assholes who are taught to hate from a young age. This proves it and therefore they should get exactly what they say they love. Martyrdom.

If they’re carrying knives then I’m carrying a sword

Re some comments below;

Mosque burning sounds like a fun pastime, maybe we could make it a National Sport. It would be more fun if the Mosque’s were full at the time if ignition…☻☻

I hope Muslims have a sense of humor.

All Muslims, in and coming to Canada, who want to stay here should first agree to Castration and Frontal Lobotomy. Canadians may live longer, that way

One of the You Tube videos I watched mentioned that this BS about Islam being the religion of peace has a caveat. Peace only comes after the muslims have conquered the entire planet and all living people have submitted to Islam. This is the only reason the muslims say they believe in world peace. Until that happens it’s all out jihad.
Most of the mosques get funding from Saudi Arabia and from their own people who are compelled to give a certain percentage of their income which I believe is 10%. That explains why so many muslims in Canada can afford to sue people like Ezra because they are not paying out of their own pocket. It also radicalizes the non violent muslim to be a part of the jihad by forcing them to hand over their own money.
I would like to see Canada watch for funds transfers to any and all mosques. Fintrac is the government capability to accomplish this. At the same time Canada could and should record all video/audio of any activity inside these building that are used to promote hate, violence, jihad, etc. It would be easy to nail these pigs if the government wanted to but it’s not going to happen under shit for brains Trudeau.

Peterborough has it right. Burn down the mosques.

This is the kind of shit goes on in the mosques in Canada… It’s time we order all mosques to broadcast on CBC so Canadains can see the true meaning of the relgion of peace and then broadcast a Christian service To see which is the religion of peace
commented 2016-01-28 13:41:48 -0500
And people say that Islam is a religion of peace. I say bull excrement!
