Genuinely sympathetic profile of an Israeli Jewish “terrorist” – Who is Meir Ettinger, really? – HaKol HaYehudi

מאיר_אטינגר211

There have recently been several articles in outlets like Haaretz, and others with titles something along the lines of “Who is Meir Ettinger?” In their articles they describe how Meir is the grandson of Rabbi Meir Kahane and how he is the head of a “terrorist” organization.

But, none of that really tells you about who Meir really is. None of that tells you what it would be like to meet him or what it would be like to live in a state that reflected Meir’s vision. As someone who has met Meir, on many occasions, and as someone who considers him a friend, I’d like to tell you who Meir Ettinger is, really.

The first time I met Meir was while he was learning in yeshiva. I saw him learning very intensely and decided that I wanted to meet this holy Jew. I introduced myself and I could immediately tell how much he cared for me as a fellow Jew. He was soft spoken, yet clearly very learned in Torah and Chassidus.

The next time I recall meeting Meir was when we spent Shabbos together. This was before he got married, and Meir had prepared Shabbos meals for a group of young people who had come to help settle one of the Jewish hilltops in the Shomron. I remember his smile as he joked that since he could cook he didn’t need to get married. A few of us mentioned that the potatoes were undercooked and he joked that maybe he’d have to get married, but his wife would only have to make the potatoes.

FORWARD

As the crusaders continue to reveal their intense hatred and animosity towards Islam through their relentless bombing and drone campaigns on the Islamic State, a new breed of crusader continues shedding light on the extent of their hatred towards the religion of truth. This breed of crusader aims to do nothing more than to anger the Muslims by mocking and ridiculing the best of creation, the Prophet Muhammad Ibn ‘Abdillāh (sallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam), under the pretext of defending the idol of “freedom of speech.” Yet, such brazen attacks on the honor of the Prophet (sallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam), rather than deterring or disheartening the Muslims, serve as further incitement, spurring them into confronting the forces of kufr with whatever means they have available. Such was the case with Elton Simpson and Nadir Soofi, two brave men who took it upon themselves to remind the enemies of Allah and His Messenger (sallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) that as long as they choose to wage war on Islam, they would have no peace and security, would not be able to walk their own streets without looking over their shoulders, and would not be able to make public appearances without being surrounding by a legion of bodyguards and security personnel. The two lions of the Khilāfah arrived at the Curtis Culwell Center in Garland, Texas three weeks ago during a convention that featured a competition to draw the Prophet (sallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) in an attempt to mock and ridicule him. The two mujāhidīn came armed and ready to wage war, ignited a gun battle with the policemen guarding the center, and attained a noble shahādah in pursuit of vengeance for the honor of our beloved Prophet (sallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam). Their determination to support the cause of Allah and punish those who insult the Prophet (sallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) should serve as inspiration to those residing in the lands of the crusaders who are still hesitant to perform their duty. Those men who have read the countless āyāt and ahādīth on the virtues of jihād and have made sincere du’ā’ to Allah asking Him for shahādah but have yet to act, should consider that Allah will not grant them their du’ā’ until they take a step towards this noble duty. {And if they had intended to go forth, they would have prepared for it [some] preparation. But Allah disliked their being sent, so He kept them back, and they were told, “Remain [behind] with those who remain”} [At-Tawbah: 46]. Dabiq9

How ISIS controls life, from birth to foosball – CNN

ShuraCouncil

(CNN)It has all the key points you’d expect on a birth certificate — baby’s weight, length and date of birth confirmed with an official insignia. The difference here is the governing authority’s stamp: The Islamic State in Iraq and Syria.
It’s one of many official documents relating to matters such as vaccination schedules, fishing methods and rent disputes in the areas now controlled by ISIS.
For ISIS sees itself as a government operating under a rule of law, even if the group is most often talked about for its barbaric punishment of anyone who resists or defies its medieval interpretation of that Islamic law.
The ISIS documents, some shared with CNN by researcher Aymenn Al-Tamimi, give a window into the bureaucracy of the self-declared caliphate.
Last summer, ISIS fighters swept through the Iraqi city of Mosul. Once they took power, leaders wanted to show they could bring stability allowing daily life to resume. So, they quickly reopened the University of Mosul, albeit under a radically altered curriculum. Read the or watch the video here.

Camp Jihad? – a little more from the latest edition the IS online mag “Dabiq” #isis #isil

I LOVE this picture.  Happy, heavily armed young men joining their brethren from across the globe in a noble battle to conquer evil and create a better world!

JihadCampThe copy ain’t half bad either…

“The Khalīfah (hafidhahullāh) said, “O Muslims everywhere, glad tidings to you and expect good. Raise your heads high, for today – by Allah’s grace – you have a state and khilāfah, which will return your dignity, might, rights, and leadership. It is a state where the Arab and non-Arab, the white man and black man, the easterner and westerner are all brothers. It is a khilāfah that gathered the Caucasian, Indian, Chinese, Shāmī, Iraqi, Yemeni, Egyptian, Maghribī (North African), American, French, German, and Australian. Allah brought their hearts together, and thus, they became brothers by His grace, loving each other for the sake of Allah, standing in a single trench, defending and guarding each other, and sacrificing themselves for one another. ”

Don’t get me wrong.  I oppose this movement and think it should be stopped. But I respect their excellent marketing skills. This is from edition #8 which you can get here.  You can read them all at Jihadology.net

Whatever else you say about the IS they have good graphic designers and put out an attractive online mag! #isis

There’s been much handwringing in the west about educated, middle-class kids can become “radicalized” and want to join the fight against for a Caliphate. Part of the answer is maybe the excellent information and recruitment materials they publish.

Resistance not to remain silent over Saudi attacks on Yemen: Hezbollah

Lebanon’s Hezbollah has reiterated its condemnation of Saudi airstrikes against Yemen, saying the resistance movement will not remain silent over the aggression.

Hezbollah’s Media Relations issued a strongly-worded statement on Wednesday, saying Saudi Arabia is attempting to create divisions in the region and fragment the regional countries, Lebanon’s al-Manar TV reported.

The statement further noted that Saudi Arabia murders innocent people through purchasing consciences, importing armies and soldiers, and sowing discord.

Extermination operations as well as mass murders are being committed during the course of the Saudi aggression against innocent Yemeni civilians, the statement said.

It also described Saudi Arabia as the regime of ignorance and murder in the Arabian Peninsula which is exporting terrorism, extremists and subversive ideologies. http://www.presstv.ir/Detail/2015/04/16/406542/Hezbollah-slams-Saudi-aggression-again
