German vigilante group vows to protect women from migrant attackers as 34 suspects are arrested – including three for gang-raping two teenagers

  • Hundreds of women were sexually assaulted, robbed on New Year’s Eve 
  • The attackers were migrants who taunted police saying: ‘Merkel invited us’ 
  • Three Syrians arrested for raping two teenage girls in southern Germany 
  • Vigilante group ‘Dusseldorf is Watching’ has since gained 8,000 followers
  • Threatening notes in German were found on one of the arrested suspects 

Thousands have pledged their support to a German vigilante group which has vowed to protect women from migrants in the wake of the New Year’s Eve attacks in Cologne.

A week after a mob of ‘drunk and stoned’ migrants sexually assaulted and robbed 100 women on the streets of Cologne, a group known as ‘Dusseldorf is Watching’ has gained more than 8,000 Facebook members.

The group says it wants to make the streets safer through ‘presence’ alone but police have warned that ‘searching for offenders is not a job for citizens’.

German police have said 18 of the 31 suspects arrested in connection with the Cologne attacks were asylum seekers.

Shall I just buy a burka and get it over with? Europe’s governments may be desperate to cover it up but Cologne proves that many Muslim men have NO respect for white women – or the cultures of the countries they are invading

We might look back and say the last day of 2015 was the start of it.

The moment when displaced people became so angered by their miserable migrant lives, they decided to take it out on the women of Cologne.

The head of police said there was a relaxed atmosphere, and the New Year’s Eve celebrations passed off peacefully.

Yet there were two rapes, 100 attacks on women, and gangs 1,000-strong harassing and thieving from others. And still we are not supposed to talk about it.

Published time: 9 Jan, 2016 03:01

© StringerTurkish forces foiled an attack on their training camp in Iraq, killing 18 jihadists, said President Erdogan in defense of an unauthorized military deployment. However, Iraq’s military said no battles between Turkish troops and ISIS recently took place.

Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) militants attempted to infiltrate the Turkish training camp in Iraq this week, Recep Tayyip Erdogan has claimed, referring to an event that allegedly took place on January 7.

“I have been told that some 18 Daesh [the Arabic name for IS] terrorists who tried to sneak into the Bashiqa camp were neutralized,” he said, adding that no Turkish troops were injured in the fight.

The Turkish President has taken the opportunity to praise the usefulness of the military installation located near the city of Mosul, saying that the ISIS attack “proves just how appropriate was the step taken regarding the camp.”

Kerry: Iran ‘days away’ from meeting nuke deal commitments

(JTA) — Iran may be only “days away” from complying with the nuclear deal signed last summer, according to Secretary of State John Kerry.

Iran removed most of its stockpile of enriched uranium last week, Kerry said Thursday, The Associated Press reported.

“Iran literally shipped out its capacity, currently, to build a nuclear weapon,” he said, adding that “in the next days, with the completion of their tasks, we will meet our target of being more than a year of breakout time.”

Kerry said the Obama administration plans to address Iran’s missile and other activities, including its detention of several American citizens, but he did not offer details.

Report: Adelson offered US $1 billion to fund Iron Dome batteries

WASHINGTON (JTA) — Sheldon Adelson reportedly offered the United States $1 billion to assist in the support of Israel’s Iron Dome anti-missile program.

The Las Vegas-based casino magnate contacted the White House in 2013 through his home state senator, Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nev., then the majority leader, Politico reported Thursday.

“Congress had just passed a funding bill for the joint Pentagon-Israel Iron Dome missile system when Reid fielded a phone call from Sheldon Adelson, the Las Vegas multibillionaire and GOP donor,” Politico reported without naming its sources. “Adelson made an offer: He would personally finance $1 billion for Iron Dome batteries, paid through the federal government, so committed was he to safeguarding the Jewish state.”

Is Marco Rubio really outraged by US spying on Israel?

Republican presidential candidate Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., has made seemingly contradictory statements about the seriousness of reported U.S. spying on Israel.

Democrats have been eager to point out the apparent discrepancy.

In the aftermath of the Wall Street Journal revelation last month that the National Security Agency eavesdropped on Israeli officials, including Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Rubio, speaking on Fox News, offered a nuanced take.

“This is one of those complicated issues when it comes to intelligence matters,” he said. “We have to be very careful about how we discuss it, especially since there’s a press report that I don’t think gets the entire story.”

Published time: 8 Jan, 2016 21:22

Gerhard Puerstl © Herbert Neubauer Vienna’s police chief has come under fire after he advised women to refrain from going outside alone at night. His comments came after reports of sexual assaults against women in Austria’s Salzburg and Germany’s Cologne on New Year’s Eve.

“Women should in general not go out on the streets at night alone, they should avoid suspicious looking areas and also when in pubs and clubs should only accept drinks from people they know,” Purstl said in an interview with the Krone newspaper in the wake of the New Year’s Eve attacks on women.

Police have arrested three men in Salzburg, noting in a statement that they are Syrian and Afghan nationals.

However, Purstl urged everyone to stay calm, highlighting that no assaults connected with refugees had been registered in the Austrian capital.

Dutch chief rabbi: Rabbinical pro-Christian statement ‘goes too far’

AMSTERDAM (JTA) — A prominent European rabbi who is known for his interfaith work criticized a pro-Christian statement by other rabbis, which he said “went too far.”

The criticism by Dutch Chief Rabbi Binyomin Jacobs on Friday concerned a document published on Dec. 3 and signed by more than 50 Orthodox rabbis from Israel, the United States and Europe, including several chief rabbis such as Simon Livson of Finland and Kotel Dadon of Croatia.

Titled “To Do the Will of Our Father in Heaven,” the statement says Christianity is part of a divine plan in which God would have Jews and Christians work together to redeem the world — an idea that Jacobs warned might be seen as “lumping the two religions into a single meatloaf religion,” as he told the Friesch Dagblad in an interview published by the daily Friday.

According to the rabbinical document, Christianity is “willed by God” and is “a gift to the peoples,” whereas Jesus “strengthened the Torah of Moses.” It also states: “We Jews recognize the continued constructive validity of Christianity as our partner in the redemption of the world.”

Lisbon municipality to open Jewish museum next year

(JTA) — Lisbon’s city council said that a Jewish museum will open in the Portuguese capital next year.

The new museum is scheduled to open in the first three months of 2017 in the vicinity of Sao Miguel Square in Alfama, Lisbon’s oldest quarter, according to a report Tuesday by the Lusa news agency based on correspondence with unnamed city officials.

A municipal spokesperson told Lusa the quarter was selected because it is “emblematic for the Jewish community and for Lisbon itself, because it was home to medieval Lisbon’s largest Jewish population.”

But the municipality declined to say when and exactly where construction or renovation will begin, Lusa reported. Queries as to the new museum’s cost and funding were also unanswered.

UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon has expressed concern over Saudi Arabia’s intensifying airstrikes against civilians in Yemen, warning that Riyadh’s use of cluster bombs in the capital, Sana’a, may amount to a “war crime.”

UN spokesman Stephane Dujarric told reporters on Friday that Ban is “deeply concerned” about Saudi Arabia’s intensification of airstrikes in residential areas and on civilian buildings in the Yemeni capital, including the Chamber of Commerce, a wedding hall and a center for the blind, “despite repeated calls for a renewed cessation of hostilities.”

He added that the UN chief has also received “troubling reports” that cluster munitions have been used against civilians in many locations in Sana’a.

“The use of cluster munitions in populated areas may amount to a war crime due to their indiscriminate nature,” the UN spokesperson pointed out.

At least one Yemeni civilian was killed and a number of others were injured after Saudi jets pounded various districts of Sana’a, using cluster bombs early on Thursday.

Saudi warplanes also bombarded residential buildings in the al-Marzaq district of Hajjah Province, killing four people and injuring two others.

Leading rights group Human Rights Watch has confirmed the cluster bomb attack in the Yemeni capital’s residential areas, saying it amounted to “a war crime.”

Hitler’s ‘Mein Kampf’ published in Germany for first time since WWII

Published time: 8 Jan, 2016 18:15

Copies of the book 'Hitler, Mein Kampf © Michael DalderAn annotated edition of Adolf Hitler’s “Mein Kampf” has gone on sale in Germany. It is the first version of the notorious manifesto to be published in the country since World War II, and contains academic notes which are critical of Hitler.

Published by the Munich-based Institute for Contemporary History, the plain-covered “Hilter, Mein Kampf: A Critical Edition” hit bookshelves on Friday, just days after the copyright of the original book expired at the end of 2015.

Bavaria’s state finance ministry owned the copyright on the original version, using it to prevent the publication of new editions. The book was not banned in Germany, however, and could be found online and in secondhand bookshops and libraries.

He says the new publication is needed “at a time when the well-known formulae of far-right xenophobia are threatening to become…socially acceptable again in Europe,” AP reported. He noted that it is “necessary to research and critically present the appalling driving forces of National Socialism and its deadly racism.”

The new edition contains thousands of academic notes and “exposes the false information spread by Hitler, his downright lies and his many half-truths, which aimed at a pure propaganda effect,” according to Andreas Wirsching, director of the Institute for Contemporary History.
