Victor LaszloRebel Commentator

1. Jewish man, 69, attacked in Paris by assailant shouting about Allah and Hitler

(JTA) — A 69-year-old Jewish man wearing a kippah was assaulted in Paris by a young Arab man who shouted about Allah and Hitler.

In Tuesday’s incident, the alleged assailant hit the Jewish man, pushed him to the ground and dragged him by his hair while shouting “Alla hu akbar, long live Hitler, death to the Jews,” the National Bureau for Vigilance Against Anti-Semitism, or BNVCA, wrote in a statement Wednesday. The call in Arabic means “Allah is the greatest.”

Police apprehended the suspected assailant, the report said. A police physician recommended transferring the suspect to a psychiatric institution for observation because he was in a “state of over-excitement,” according to the information received by BNVCA.

2. Turkish man beats Jews in front of kosher shop in Vienna

24-year-old man attacks Jews in front of kosher restaurant in Austria capital before assaulting woman

Several Jews were physically assaulted in Vienna on Thursday outside of a kosher restaurant.

The incident occurred in Vienna’s Leopoldstadt district Thursday morning, on Tabor Street.

According to Austrian media outlets, a 24-year-old Austrian man of Turkish origin attacked three Jewish men in front of a kosher restaurant and near a synagogue.

Witnesses say the assailant jumped one of the victims, knocking him to the ground. The suspect then began to beat the victims.

4. Britain's youngest convicted terrorist, 14, asks courts for anonymity for life: Boy plotted from his bedroom to behead police officers in Australia and also turn a kangaroo into a suicide bomber

Britain's youngest convicted terrorist who plotted to behead police officers when he was just 14 has asked the courts for lifelong anonymity.

[...] RXG was jailed for life in October 2015 for inciting terrorism but will be eligible for release in 2020 after serving a minimum term of five years if he no longer poses a threat, reports the Sunday Times.

In March 2015 the teenager took on the role of “organiser and adviser” to Australian jihadist Sevdet Besim, 18, telling him to murder police officers by beheading in Melbourne on Anzac Day.

The youngster exchanged more than 3,000 encrypted mobile app messages with Besim after he became swiftly radicalised by online Islamic State propaganda.

They also discussed packing a kangaroo with explosives, painting it with an Islamic State symbol and setting it loose on police officers.

5. The Islamic school run from the home of a rapist: Owner attacked girl, 16, but council can't prevent his wife teaching primary pupils in the front room

The home of a convicted rapist is being used as an unregulated Islamic school for children.

Ghulam Haider’s wife is teaching around 17 children of primary school age at the madrassa that she runs from their front room at weekends.

Former taxi driver Haider, 61, was jailed for six years in 2006 after a court heard he brutally raped a 16-year-old at a derelict churchyard.

The madrassa highlights a safeguarding loophole around children attending “out of school education” centres, which require no monitoring from education watchdog Ofsted or local authorities.

6. Exposé: Life in Egypt is “Hell” for Christian women

Egyptian Muslim men routinely treat Christian women as “whores,” which makes life in Egyptian society a living hell, a female Coptic journalist wrote in a revealing op-ed this week.

“To be a woman in a country where most of her people see women as a disgrace, and at best look at her from a sexual point of view, it is a heavy burden, but even worse when you are a Christian woman,” wrote Engy Magdy in the Brooklyn-based Catholic news website The Tablet Wednesday. “It is hell!”

In her exposé, the Cairo-based journalist said that sexual harassment in Egypt should be treated as a country-wide “epidemic,” citing a 2013 United Nations study that found that 99 percent of Egyptian women have been victims of harassment.

7. Bavarian town votes against building mosque

Citizens in the small Bavarian town of Kaufbeuren voted not to provide public land for a mosque. A local initiative was started by a retired detective and garnered enough votes to stop the negotiations.

In a local vote on Sunday, the residents of Kaufbeuren, a small town in Bavaria, decided against providing public land for the construction of a mosque.

At issue was the question of whether the city would provide the local branch of the nationally active Turkish-Islamic religious association DITIB with a 5,000-square-meter (54,000-square-foot) plot in an industrial area.

At least 45 percent of approximately 34,000 eligible voters took part in the local referendum. A minimum turnout of 20 percent was necessary to make the vote valid. The city must now break off its negotiations with DITIB.

DITIB is a Turkish organization which has been exposed by German news on several occasions.


8. Villagers murdered, kidnapped in suspected Boko Haram attack in Lake Chad region

Eighteen people have been killed in an attack by suspected Boko Haram jihadists in the Lake Chad region, a Chadian military source said Sunday.

“Boko Haram elements attacked a village south of Daboua,” not far from Chad's border with Niger, at around 9:00 pm (2000 GMT) on Thursday, the military source said.

The assailants “cut the throats of 18 people, wounded two others and kidnapped 10 women”.

Boko Haram's Islamist insurgency has devastated the region since it took up arms in 2009 in Nigeria, leaving at least 20,000 people dead, displacing more than two million others and triggering a humanitarian crisis.

Chad, Cameroon and Niger have all joined the military effort by Nigeria to crush Boko Haram.

9. WARMINGTON: Was Danforth attack terror, or terrorism?

It was terror on the Danforth no question.

But was it terrorism?

In the hours following the evil carnage that took the lives of two girls, just 10 and 18 and wounded 14 others in a merciless flurry of gunfire along the restaurant-lined streets of Greektown, a complicated picture is emerging of 29-year-old Faisel Hussain, who also died after exchanging gunfire with police.

His family released a statement to CBC News expressing their “deepest condolences” to victims and their families, saying their son struggled with “severe mental health challenges.“

Meanwhile, my law-enforcement sources confirm investigators are looking at every avenue — including a potential Jihadi-inspired mission.

10. Faisal Hussain ID'd as gunman in deadly Danforth attack, Special Investigations Unit says

Faisal Hussain has been identified as the gunman in the deadly Danforth Avenue shooting rampage.

Ontario's police watchdog, the Special Investigations Unit (SIU), released Hussain's identity on Monday evening, hours after investigators say the 29-year-old Toronto resident opened fire on a number of Danforth Avenue restaurants in an attack that has left the city in shock.

Witnesses captured several chilling images and videos of the attack, which took place around 10 p.m. on Sunday and left a 10-year-old girl and 18-year-old Reese Fallon dead. More shooting victims remain in hospital, with some having undergone multiple life-saving surgeries, according to doctors.

Allan Peterson,

What does WWII have to do with anything that we are talking about here?
Ah, the truth hurts as you said, so now you resort to the fallacy of chronological snobbery to avoid answering the question. So why don’t you just answer it? It isn’t a very hard question.
commented 2018-07-24 22:01:50 -0400
But as every lefty will tell you, “They’re not all terrorists”.
commented 2018-07-24 18:37:20 -0400
This is seeming like an obvious cover-up. How do these poor old Muslim people push out a perfect press release as fast as they release name. Any family even around?
commented 2018-07-24 18:03:28 -0400
MUTA WEEN besides all i have seen ,of course unverified re his being known to the intelligence agency and previously having been interviewed by same previously and his travels to the middle east and his support for Islamic terrorists .
The retired police officer on CP24 made an observation from his police experience and he noted that the way the shooter held the gun when he fired it indicates he has had training firing guns
If we wait for facts we will be waiting for a long time , this will get swept under rug,
As for your statement “and the status regarding his his possession of that firearm.” i think a picture of him firing that firearm indicates he had possession of that firearm
commented 2018-07-24 14:37:35 -0400
Ron Shea writes “he was highly trained in use of firearms”. What information do you have that validates this statement or conclusion? Was he the member of a gun club and practiced regularly? Did he receive some special training that is documented by a qualified firearms instructor?
So far in the media reports I have seen no reference to what firearm was used and the status regarding his his possession of that firearm.
As Sgt.Joe Friday used to say on Dragnet , “just the facts ma’am , just the facts” .
commented 2018-07-24 12:13:37 -0400
The Toronto shooter was an Islamic terrorist. He was highly trained in use of firearms. CSIS knew about him. The RCMP knew about him.

There was nothing mentally ill about him. Daily reading of the Koran convinced him he must murder.

The CBC were interviewing his family an hour before his name was even released to the public.

I wrote the Conservative Party again yesterday and asked if Andrew Scheer was going to call out CBC as fake news, call the attack Islamic terrorism and have as one of his election promises the complete ban of the Islamic cult in Canada. No response.

Canadians, you are being lied to. The politicians and media would rather you all be killed then tell the truth about an Islamic cult that does not and never should have been allowed to come to our country.
commented 2018-07-24 10:23:42 -0400
Trudeau has no trouble killing babies but can’t bring himself to restrict immigration of those who would do us harm. He doesn’t sound like a leader that likes this country. All right thinking people should VOTE HIM OUT on election day which, for me, can’t come soon enough.
commented 2018-07-24 10:12:47 -0400
So, now we know the government and media are calling orthodox muslims mentally ill, rather than identifying Islamic terror attacks for what they are.
Why are so many “mentally ill” people coming to Canada or returning from ISIS defeated land with the blessings of PM?
commented 2018-07-24 08:28:54 -0400
Justin Trudeau is as guilty in the deaths of these precious Canadian girls as the shooter himself.
This is what globalism brings to us. This is what islam brings to us. THIS is what the LIBERALS bring to us. DEATH

#9. – Hows that diversity working out for you mayor Torey.???? Haven’t enough white/Christian Canadians died for Trudeau’s treasonous agenda?
commented 2018-07-24 02:39:54 -0400
Well I guess all there is left to do, is wait for the next one. By the time that happens, this latest one will have been effectively covered up, just like the van driver case on Yonge St. 3 months ago.
Diversity is Our Strength, keep repeating that until you get good and mad. Perhaps mad enough where you become mentally ill.

I saw this Claudio guy being interviewed on CBC, he is some expert from York U I think. He stated how he felt for the parents of Faisal’s, how difficult it must have been for them that their son was suffering mental illness. Others on the CBC reportage of this tragedy, same thing, we have to help people like this that are suffering mental illness. Not a word of sympathy for the dead, wounded and THEIR FAMILIES.
It’s as if the victims are responsible for triggering this guys break with reality. If it turns out he is Muslim, I don’t think he is mentally ill, just another Jihadi demonstrating the hate. The van killer had mental illness and there is an endless number of such incidents in Europe and the USA where the traitorous, cowardly media and politicians call it mental illness. They are the ones that are mentally ill, not doing anything to prevent this or punish after the fact.

Further to my comment 2 hrs ago, re: naming the culprit right away if they are White.
During the change of the Parliamentary Guard in Ottawa today , a guy jumped the rope, ran at a Guard, apparently with a small knife, but was stopped before he could do any damage.
CTV announced his name right away as Jessie Lonie, a non Middle East name.
commented 2018-07-24 00:26:01 -0400
Canada like all other western countries, is at war. The problem is that Canadians are not permitted to shoot back and if they did they would be arrested. Shooting people of Islamic faith is a terrible sin and strictly forbidden under Trudeau’s rule. Perhaps if Trudeau was no longer with us, the death rate would fall.
commented 2018-07-24 00:21:28 -0400
In a letter, Ralph Goodale tells me ISIS returnees are simply high risk travellers. Could Hussain have been one?
Why is his brother in a year long coma? Health? Injury?
Hussain previously lived in Afghanistan and Paskistan. Apparently. Hmmm?
Apparently has been inquired (monitored) upon by law enforcement. Guns and violence reasons. How and why was he reported previously? What reason would they have to be monitoring him?
What are the police learning from Hussain’s computer and social media activity?
Are you beginning to form a picture? Mentally ill alright.
commented 2018-07-23 23:35:20 -0400
Prayers and compassion to all the victims and friends and families who have lost loved ones. As well as those in recovery. Let’s pray the wounded fully recover. May knowing Jesus comfort them at this grievous time.

God how senseless, needless and tragic.

Wake up Canada.

How is it that almost simultaneously the murderer’s family released an obviously well crafted press release at the same time the killer’s name was released? Close collaboration between the SIU, PMO and CBC I suspect? For what reason? Sickening; this Liberal Broadcasting Corporation who obviously were being kept current of the situation a step ahead of other news networks.
Is there truth to the reports that previous 6 years of Hussain’s facebook activity has been bleached? Bleach social media before releasing his name.
If that is true, even more pathetic.

Wake up Canada.

Pass this on Gerry:
Trudeau, you made such a big deal of a bear spray incident in BC and a hijab incident. Found to be orchestrated. I suppose Goodale will send me one of his fabricated replies claiming the gunman was irregular cause he had mental illness and the gun is illegal so we should start another registry to solve the problem. ’Cause with a registry an irregular killer would never have gotten his hands on a gun.
Trump is right you are dishonest and weak.

Wake up Canada

Mental illness, depressed. Depressed people don’t plan mass shootings, murderers do.
You won’t find any politicians prepared to do anything about this. They’re all cowards.
Stephen Harper, please come back.

/10 Faisal Hussian sounds a little like a Islamic name, don’t you think?
That is the reason that the MSM and the leftist Police waited so long to tell us.
If it were a White shooter, we would have had his name minutes after the reporting started on Sunday night.
This sneaky way of reporting works against the left as when we don’t hear any description of the shooter, the average person automatically assumes that the authorities are hiding something and the killer is working on behalf of Allah.
