A jihad attack took place at a church in Rouen, in the French province of Normandy, and cost the life of a priest, who may have been graphically murdered. The two jihadists who committed the crime were shot dead, but the tragic loss of innocent life remains.

The UKIP's condemned the attack, and said:
Party defence spokesman Mike Hookem MEP has said in a statement to press that leaders, including Britain’s new Prime Minister Theresa May need to up their game to defeat radical Islam. The former Royal Marine said: “This latest appalling murder in France shows that militant Islam is at war with the people of Europe and with peaceful religions.

“Every day now we have a new story of bloodshed and European leaders need to face facts rather than spend their time trying to convince people this isn’t a problem. Juncker, Merkel and other EU leaders who oversaw the mass migration without any security checks have blood on their hands.

“May needs to up her game.

“Normandy, the home of the D-Day landings where thousands lost their lives to free Europe from fascist tyranny has today witnessed a different form of fascism.

“But we defeated the Nazis so we can defeat these murderers if our leaders admit to what we are facing.”
The guy's correct. Any and all political leaders who vehemently refuse to do anything about the horror that's now engulfing Europe and elsewhere only ensure it'll continue to leave more dead innocents in its wake. They're going to have to start closing off all those enclaves and exile the barbarians dominating within them. For now, it's impossible to tell what'll be in the future, but we cannot let evil triumph by doing nothing.

He went on a rampage with a machete before being stopped:
A Syrian asylum-seeker killed a pregnant woman with a machete and wounded two others Sunday outside a bus station in the southwestern German city of Reutlingen, as the country remained on high alert after last week’s massacre in Munich that left nine dead.

German authorities said the 21-year-old man behind the fatal slashing was known to them and had an argument with his victim, a kebab-stand worker, before attacking her around 4:30 p.m.

The unidentified victim was pregnant, the German magazine Bild reported.

The suspect wounded another woman and a man as he fled. He was quickly captured nearby. Police said they do not suspect any terror links.
Here they go again. It's not whether a single culprit has links to a terrorist gang that matters, it's what their ideology is that's driving them to commit graphic murders. And authorities are still blind to the challenging answers.

Last week, there was an Islamofascist who attacked Chinese tourists on a train with an axe. Now, there's been another attack and murder committed by an 18-year-old in Munich:
A German-Iranian teenager who shot dead nine people in Munich was a deranged lone gunman obsessed with mass killings who drew no inspiration from Islamist militancy, police said on Saturday.

The 18-year-old, born and raised locally, opened fire near a busy shopping mall on Friday evening, triggering a lockdown in the Bavarian state capital.

Seven of his victims were themselves teenagers, who police said he may have lured to their deaths via a hacked Facebook account on what was the fifth anniversary of twin attacks by Norwegian mass murderer Anders Breivik that killed 77 people.

The Munich shooting, in which a further 27 people were wounded, some seriously, was the third act of violence against civilians in Western Europe - and the second in southern Germany - in eight days.

Bavarian state crime office president Robert Heimberger said the gunman, who German media named as Ali David Sonboly, was carrying more than 300 bullets in his backpack and pistol when he was later found dead of a gunshot wound.
He may not have been a member of a terrorist cell, but no matter what the police say, he most definitely was influenced by the Religion of Peace, and they're doing a terrible disfavor for the millionth time by refusing to acknowledge the links he has with that repellent belief system.


While the bloodbath in Nice was going on, there was another Muslim attack over in the north that the press won't report on, and the UK Telegraph's only being vague about:
A French woman and her three young daughters were seriously wounded in a knife attack at an Alpine resort on Tuesday by a man who reportedly complained that they were scantily dressed.

The man was arrested after the attack at the Alpine resort of Garde-Colombe, near Laragne, in southern France.

The youngest girl, aged 8, was rushed to hospital in Grenoble with a punctured lung, according to initial reports.

Her mother, 46, and sisters aged 12 and 14, were being treated at the hospital of Gap, closer to the scene of the attack. Their injuries were serious but not life-threatening, hospital sources said.

Initial reports claimed the man struck because he was angered by the women being "scantily dressed," but a local prosecutor denied this.
In other words, the district attorney's adding insult to injury for the victims. But as the article goes on to say:
The attacker, named as Mohamed B, 37, "may have acted out of religious motives", French television channel TF1 reported.

Despite the prosecutor's denial, TF1 reported that he was angry that the girls were wearing shorts.
So he was acting as a "public moralist", and he even had a record for petty crimes. The worst part is that the mother had helped him earlier when he was allegedly ill, and this is how he returned favor. And the DA is actively participating in downplaying the seriousness of the issue.

Breitbart's London section reveals that the jihad attack on the Bataclan theater last year was worse than previously reported:
The French government has been accused of covering up the barbaric torture of victims of the Islamic State (IS) attacks on Paris in November.

A government committee has heard testimony, suggesting terrorists gouged out eyes, castrated victims, and shoved their testicles in their mouths in the Bataclan Theater, where 60–100 concertgoers were taken hostage and 89 died.

Critics claim the information was deliberately “suppressed” to minimise outrage in the wake of the attacks. Prosecutors, however, argued reports are “a rumour”, claiming that no knives were found at the scene and shrapnel could have caused the injuries.
It sounds like the prosecutors are suppressing information, and determined not to do justice. Some of the details given here are truly repulsive, and if they tried to conceal all that, they should all resign from their posts. They've done a colossal disfavor to tons of innocent people in a tragedy that could've been avoided.

Following the mass murder by a Tunisian jihadist in Nice, France, the Jewish world is also expressing solidarity with the victims:
Still shocked and horrified by the senseless carnage that took place in Nice, France late Thursday evening, the Jewish world conveyed its deepest sympathies to victims of the deadly Bastille Day terror attack, which saw over 80 killed and scores injured after a 31-year-old Franco-Tunisian gunman rammed a truck into a of crowd of spectators out enjoying a fireworks display.
It's horrible to learn that children were among the murdered:
A French official on Friday said 10 children were among the 84 people killed when a gunman rammed a truck through a crowd of thousands celebrating Bastille Day on the French Riviera on Thursday evening.

The driver was shot dead by police and no one immediately claimed responsibility for the Thursday night attack on France’s national holiday, which rocked a nation still dealing with the aftermath of two attacks in Paris last year that killed a total of 147 people.

Police sources said the driver had been formally identified as a 31-year-old Franco-Tunisian man whose identity papers were found in the vehicle after the attack.

Police have not yet released the attacker’s name, but they said he lived in Nice. Other sources said previously he was already known to police for minor criminal offenses. A police source said the vehicle had been rented in the region “a few days ago.”

Christian Estrosi, the regional president in Nice, confirmed that 10 children had been killed.

Estrosi said some of the city’s 1,200 security cameras had pinpointed the moment the attacker boarded the truck, far from the beachfront “in the hills of Nice” and could follow his path to the promenade. Estrosi called for the investigation to focus on any accomplices.

“Attacks aren’t prepared alone. Attacks are prepared with accomplices,” Estrosi said. “There is a chain of complicity. I expect it to be unveiled, discovered and kept up to date.”

Estrosi said France needed to think carefully about its next response to attacks, as previous responses were not enough to protect the people.
Indeed they're going to have to take serious steps, because if not, there's bound to be more horrors like this one very soon. They're going to have to start setting martial law upon the suburban neighborhoods where many of these creatures dwell.

And Francois Hollande would do well to resign, because he's clearly unfit to manage the situation.


Another terrorist attack struck France, this time in Nice during Bastille Day:

Our condolences to the families of the victims. As for Francois Hollande, this is decidedly the fault of people like him, who're taking little or no proper steps to defeat jihadism. How are they going to deal with the situation this time?

Here's another report from ABC.

A Hamas terrorist was arrested for trying to smuggle funding to the jihadists in his shoes:
One of two Hamas agents who were named last week by the Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) for smuggling around 10,000 euros in his shoes was indicted in the Beersheba District Court on Sunday.

The two Gazans were arrested in June by the security agency with terrorism-financing cash hidden in their shoes on its way with them from Gaza to the West Bank. They enabled Israel to gain valuable intelligence on the underground network of tunnels Hamas and Islamic Jihad are digging in Gaza.

Jabaliya resident Itallah Sarahan, 37, was arrested at the Erez Crossing and when he was questioned, security forces learned that he received a permit to enter Israel for trade purposes two weeks prior to his arrest.

On his first day visiting Israel, a Hamas policeman on the Gazan side of the crossing asked Sarahan if he would smuggle cash to Hamas in the West Bank. Sarahan “expressed his willingness to do so,” the Shin Bet said, leading the Hamas police officer to take him to a meeting with the Islamist regime’s operatives, who paid him for the mission and provided him with special shoes in which the money was hidden.

He was promised help if he got caught by Israeli authorities.

Sarahan allegedly smuggled funds on the day before his arrest, as well being caught with more cash on the day of his arrest.

The suspect works as a truck driver in Gaza, clearing sand from Hamas and Islamic Jihad tunnel digging sites. “Sarahan passed on much information about the tunnels he was exposed to, including which terrorist organization was responsible for digging which tunnels, their exact locations, and the status of the digging work,” the Shin Bet said.

The investigation underlines Hamas’s cynical use of Israeli efforts to ease economic conditions for the Gazan civilian population. Thousands of Gazans enter Israel every month for humanitarian, medical, and trade purposes, and Hamas often attempts to exploit these entries to transfer terrorist finances, the Shin Bet said.
They don't deserve any money since all they truly want it for is to fund jihad.


And this creepy character pulled his stunt on a site that's starting to be loathed by anybody with common sense:
Army Radio chief Yaron Dekel suspended the station's film critic Gidi Orsher on Saturday, following a controversial Facebook post by Orsher in which he derided Israel's Mizrahi community. The post, lambasted as racist, followed the public debate over a recent Education Ministry decision to introduce additional Mizrahi Jewish heritage studies into school curriculum.

Orsher's post read, "All you professional Mizrahi whiners, the next time you have a heart attack, just skip the catheterization and fling a chicken leg over your head, or any other of your old wives' remedies. The next time you huddle in a secure room when missiles are flying over your heads, just ignore Iron Dome -- recite psalms or wait for the matriarch Rachel to protect you."

The post earned scathing criticism from across the political spectrum.

"The remarks made this weekend by Army Radio's film critic, blatantly and disgracefully defaming Mizrahi Jews, are reprehensible," Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said. "A man holding such racial biases has no place in public broadcasting in Israel. We must disregard the voices trying to create a rift between us, and we must work together to promote social unity in Israel."
As some may know, Facebook was recently panned by Israel's internal security minister for sabotaging efforts to combat terrorism. It seems like just the place where such a disgusting man would want to post such bile, and this whole subject reminded me why I don't want an account with Facebook. Orsher should be ostracized for his cracks, which do a terrible disfavor to the Mizrahi members of my own family too. It's more or less the same kind of reprehensible treatment some Haredi schools have been conducting against people of Mizrahi backgrounds. The film critic's simply not fit for his job.

It's good to see that right-wingers in the Knesset understand the seriousness of the issue, and note that the late Elie Wiesel also referenced Armenia's tragedy in the early 20th century:
Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein and other MKs called for the government to recognize the Armenian Genocide Tuesday, despite recently signing an agreement improving relations with Turkey.

“We cannot ignore, dwarf or deny this terrible genocide,” Edelstein stated. “We must disconnect current interests of this time and place from the difficult past.”

Edelstein quoted Nobel Prize-winning author, philosopher and Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel, who died on Saturday, as saying apathy to suffering helps the enemy.

“We cannot remain apathetic, even if it’s late, to the suffering the Armenians experienced. Recognizing the Armenian genocide is important to us as human beings who carry the moral responsibility and constantly hope to improve the world and society,” Edelstein stated.
One more reason why the ill-advised agreement with Turkey was a bad mistake. It complicates matters even further.

Another murder took place around Hebron, this time a rabbi and father name Michael Mark was the victim:
Mark, 48, one of the founders of the Orthodox community of Otniel in Judea, was killed on Friday afternoon in a drive-by terrorist shooting on Route 60, in the South Hebron Hills. Mark's wife and two of his 10 children were wounded in the attack. A manhunt for the terrorists, who remain at large, is ongoing.
Read more, and also this extra article for his daughter's eulogy. These murders by jihadists are absolutely disgusting.

Notable Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel, who authored memoirs like Night, has died at 87 years of age. He'll be very missed.


This week, a reconciliation deal with Turkey was signed, for all the good it'll ever do. But if Israel's government thinks Erdogan will actually try to curb Hamas, for example, that's only buying into taqqiya.

At the end of the day, the Israel-Turkey reconciliation agreement boils down to interests -- not trust and certainly not sympathy. This deal will not usher in a new golden age in Jerusalem and Ankara's relations, but it will normalize relations with a major Middle East power.
For heaven's sake. "Normalization" is just crap. So long as Islam reigns in Turkey, it'll never truly be so.

Update: here's another op-ed explaining everything. And here's an article explaining why the Jewish Home opposed the deal: because the Hamas isn't going to return the bodies of 2 dead soldiers they murdered, and Turkey's unlikely to persuade them.

A terrorist infiltrated Kiryat Arba, and fatally stabbed a young dance student:
A Palestinian terrorist stabbed a 13-year old to death in her bedroom on Thursday morning after he infiltrated the West Bank settlement of Kiryat Arba, which is located next to Hebron.

“My daughter was sleeping calmly when he [the terrorist] came into her bedroom,” Hallal’s mother Rina told Army Radio. “She was happy,’ she added.

A Magen David Adom paramedic said that when he arrived at the scene the teenage girl, Hallel Yaffa Ariel, was unconscious and was not breathing. They were able to resuscitate her at the scene, but it was touch-and-go during the whole journey to Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem, as they continuously fought to keep her alive.

She was pronounced dead shortly after her arrival, without ever regaining consciousness.

After the attack, the IDF and one of the Prime Minister Office’s spokesman tweeted a photograph of her blood-stained bedroom.

Hallel had been a member of a dance troop and had performed in Jerusalem the night before. Her step-father, Amihai, is a cousin of Agriculture Minister Uri Ariel, and runs a boutique winery. She will be buried in old Jewish cemetery in Hebron. The funeral procession will leave from Kiryat Arba at 6 p.m. The terrorist, Mohammad Tarairah, 17, breached the settlement’s fence and then entered the Ariel home that was located on a security road, near a yeshiva high school for boys.

The settlement’s security team responded to the incident. According to the IDF, the terrorist stabbed a member of that security team, before another member of the team shot and killed Tarairah.
Another absolutely repulsive incident. It's fortunate that the terrorist himself was gunned down, and contrary to what the Muslims are taught, he'll just go to hell and not find any virgins.

One of the monsters responsible for this incitement is MK Hanin Zoabi, who just recently incited against the IDF:
Incitement by MK Haneen Zoabi (Joint List) is to blame for the death of 13-year-old Hallel Yaffa Ariel, MKs on the Right posited Thursday.

“The blood of the 13-year-old girl murdered today is on Zoabi’s hands,” MK Nava Boker (Likud), a Deputy Knesset Speaker, said. “This is the result of the incitement she speaks from the Knesset’s stage.”

On Wednesday, Zoabi called IDF soldiers “murderers” during a speech in the Knesset, leading to a near-brawl in the plenum when several MKs from the coalition and opposition shouted at her and tried to rush the stage. Following the melee, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu asked Attorney-General Avihai Mandelblit to look into legal ways of removing Zoabi from the Knesset.

Boker said Zoabi “encourages terrorist attacks against Jews and the murder of children in their beds.

“Until we put an end to it and get rid of her in the Knesset once and for all, we will continue to see terrorist attacks like the one today,” the Likud MK added.
I'm afraid they'll continue until they show the courage to abolish Islam once and for all.

Finally, justice was served in the case of the Haredi moonbat who thought disagreement over homosexual practice literally permits murder, and violation of the Ten Commandments:
Yishai Schlissel, the man recently convicted of the murder of 16-year-old Shira Banki and six more counts of attempted murder, all perpetrated at the Pride Parade in Jerusalem on August 2015, has been sentenced to life in prison and 31 more years.

In addition to the prison sentence, he has been ordered to pay monetary compensation to the tune of NIS 258,000, the maximum amount, to the Banki family and each of the other victims, for a total of NIS 2,064,000.

In the sentence, the judges wrote the following: "We have before us, then, a man who does not see those around him as people. A cruel man. A dangerous and heartless man. A man for whom the Judaism of pleasant ways, the Judaism of peace, the Judaism that teaches that people--all people--are created in the image of God, is completely foreign. A man who sees himself as giver and taker of life according to principles he has appointed himself to enforce. This dangerous man can no longer be allowed to roam the streets of Jerusalem or anywhere else."

It should be noted that the prosecution had requested a sentence of life in prison plus 60 years for the Schlissel's crimes.
While he fully deserves to rot in prison for his repellent crime of murdering a defenseless teenage girl, what has to be the most stupefying part of this whole case is that he apparently wanted to trash his future in the worst way possible and live the remainder of his life in prison. Is that sane? Of course not. As noted here:
Schlissel will almost certainly not appeal his sentence as he has made very clear throughout the process that he doesn't recognize the court's right to judge him, and even refused to cooperate with his attorneys.
It wouldn't be one bit shocking if he also wanted to damage the ability to dissent on legitimate terms with the practice of homosexuality, and take away attention from Islamofascism's own danger to homosexuals and lesbians. Seriously, that's what I think some of these mental cases want to do.

And here's a reminder of how he was able to commit his crime:
Schlissel was on a list of six potential violent attackers about which police were notified before the parade. Still, no steps were taken to monitor him, leaving him free to embark on a killing spree.
Why do I get the feeling even the police with their own share of leftists had no problem about something awful happening?

Even Schlissel's own community has to shoulder blame, of course, if they welcomed him back to their neighborhood with no reservations after he was released from prison, all without supervision and probationary measures. If he were to be released again today, I've got a sick feeling they'd still be okay with having him around even after the brutal murder he committed that desecrated the religion he falsely claims to follow. It's clear they made no attempt on their own part to stop him, so even if they're distancing themselves from him now, it makes little difference. They'd probably still have no concern about his returning to their neighborhood after the horror he perpetrated.

Schlissel fully deserves to rot in prison for murdering Shira Banki. But lessons still remain to be learned in many places.

Here's something president Rivlin's said that certainly makes sense:
In a speech Wednesday at the European Parliament in Brussels, President Reuven Rivlin called on European countries to invest their efforts to establish trust between Israel and Palestinian, instead of attempts to force a diplomatic settlement.

"The French Initiative adopted only a few days ago suffers from fundamental flaws," Rivlin said. "The attempt to return to negotiations not only will it not bring us closer to a solution, it distances us. The undermining push for a permanent solution is a chronicle of failure foretold form the start, that only pushes the two nations deeper into the fold of despair," he continued.

The President stated that the three main reasons the deal wouldn't work were the split between the Palestinian Authority in the West Bank and Hamas in Gaza working for the destruction of Israel, the sever economic distress undermining stability and fueling violence and the lack of total faith at all levels between the two parties.
However, I must voice disappointment that he believes trust can be established with the PLO, when they themselves aren't trust-worthy. A movement built on Islamofacism isn't trustworthy at all, not even for Europeans.


This happens to be a positive development for Europe, since it proves Britain's citizenry understand what's wrong with the EU today:
Prime Minister David Cameron, who had led the campaign to keep Britain in the EU, said he would resign by October and left it to his successor to decide when to invoke Article 50, which triggers a departure from European Union.

"I will do everything I can as prime minister to steady the ship over the coming weeks and months," he said, "but I do not think it would be right for me to try to be the captain that steers the country to its next destination."

Polls ahead of the vote had shown a close race, and the momentum had increasingly appeared to be on the "remain" side over the last week. But in an election Thursday marked by notably high turnout — 72 percent of the more than 46 million registered voters — "leave" won with 52 percent of the votes. [...]

After winning a majority in Parliament in the last election, Cameron negotiated a package of reforms that he said would protect Britain's sovereignty and prevent EU migrants from moving to the U.K. to claim generous public benefits.

Critics charged that those reforms were hollow, leaving Britain at the mercy of bureaucrats in Brussels and doing nothing to stem the tide of European immigrants who have come to the U.K. since the EU expanded eastward in 2004. The "leave" campaign accuses the immigrants of taxing Britain's housing market, public services and employment rolls.

Those concerns were magnified by the refugee crisis of the past year that saw more than 1 million people from the Middle East and Africa flood into the EU as the continent's leaders struggled to come up with a unified response.
The good news is that as of recent, a lot of UK voters now see Islam as dangerous and incompatible with their values, and this ties in with the view they have now, which is rightly worried about all the uncontrolled immigration coming into the UK as a result. If the government respects the electorate, then leaving the EU - which is responsible for influencing a lot of these policies - can help as a result. Even on the mainland of Europe, there's movements who want to leave the EU as well. So Britain's vote for Brexit could lead to something that'll be a lot better for all of the continent.

As for Cameron, he certainly should resign for adopting such awful politics that enabled the Islamigrant disaster. He could've avoided supporting the bad policies he did, but failed. Now, it's best that he go.


Veteran British actress Helen Mirren, who's been performing for a few decades, is against anti-Israel boycotts:
Oscar-winning actress Helen Mirren said Wednesday she was a "believer" in Israel and rejected efforts to boycott it.

Mirren showered Israeli artists with praise and said she opposed both the efforts by pro-Palestinian groups to boycott them and the decision of some international artists to shun Israel.

"I think that art is an incredibly important way of communication," she said at a press event in Jerusalem. "The artists of the country are the people you need to communicate with and make a relationship with and learn from and build upon. So I absolutely don't believe in the boycott, and here I am."
And I'm impressed. She's doing the right thing to avoid taking the same kind of degrading positions held by anti-Israelists in the UK, and proving a much better representative.

The philanthropist who was famous for helping recover Israel land properties stolen in the past century by Islamofascists has died this week. A special service was held in his memory.

A co-worker of the jihad monster confirmed he was as religious as can be:
A former co-worker of Omar Mateen says he was “a devout Muslim” who prayed several times during his shifts at the security company where they both worked.

Monday night, Fox News’ Megyn Kelly spoke with Daniel Gilroy who worked with Mateen for about a year at a security company. Gilroy tells Kelly he and Mateen were alone each work day during a shift change and that Mateen made bigoted remarks on every single occasion they were together. After 8 months of this, Gilroy finally went to his supervisor to report what was happening.

Asked why he waited so long to report Mateen, Gilroy replied, “I wanted to make the job work. I wanted to keep the peace. I wanted to not be the trouble-maker at work.” But the company didn’t fire Mateen so after four months or requesting a transfer, Gilroy quit. Asked if he was surprised to learn Mateen had carried out the attack in Orlando, Gilroy replied, “No, not at all.”
Good grief. The man truly was a product of the Koran's mentality. Truly disgusting.

A jihadist who was only under surveillance and not jailing murdered a policeman and his wife. Their son, who was also threatened, survived:
A police commander and his partner were stabbed to death at their home west of Paris. Their three-year-old survived.

The attacker was killed in an police assault on the house.

He had spent time in jail over jihadist links and had a list of targets including public figures, police say.

Named by French sources as Larossi Abballa, he had also been under recent police surveillance, including a wiretap, say media reports quoting police sources.

Paris Prosecutor Francois Molin said that Abballa had pledged his loyalty to IS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi during negotiations prior to the police assault on Monday, and had stated that he was answering his call "to kill infidels".

Three people linked to the man were arrested and placed in custody, he said.

Police say the man lay in wait outside the policeman's house on Monday evening before the ambush took place at around 20:30 (18:30 GMT). After the murder he went inside the house and killed the policeman's wife, and held their three-year-old son hostage.

Abballa, 25, was shot and killed when police entered the couple's home in Magnanville at about midnight, hours after he posted a 13-minute video on Facebook Live in which he swore allegiance to IS.

In the video, he was shown considering what to do with their son, according to French jihad expert David Thomson, who watched it.
The son was lucky to survive. And the police did the right thing to gun down the jihadist, who should've been kept in jail, and above all, sent for psychological evaluations. However, according to this information:
Abballa was sentenced in 2013 to two and half years in jail due to his connections to a Jihadi group with links to Pakistan. He was freed after serving his sentence and was awaiting trial.
So they released a dangerous monster when he should've been kept incarcerated. Because of that jaw-dropping irresponsibility, an innocent man and woman are now dead. If they don't start modifying procedures to ensure satanic creatures like that jihadist won't be released, this could happen again.


You've probably already heard how Marvel's modern staff turned Steve Rogers aka Capt. America into a Hydra agent. Well, here's something related. Comics critic Plummer's opinion on Nick Spencer's inside-out retcon of Steve Rogers was mentioned in some news sources. Having read it in full, certainly there's plenty of vital points she's made. But the following highlighted parts are what turned the impact soggy, and makes me question whether she's being altruistic about this:
It’s easy, especially if you’re not Jewish, to think that anti-semitism is a thing of the past. It’s not. It flies under the radar, mostly, until suddenly it doesn’t: with graffiti in Spain, hateful party games in American high schools, vicious threats being flung at Jewish journalists for criticizing Trump. With physical attacks—with deaths—in France. Nor is neo-Nazi rhetoric, which hews closer to 616 Hydra’s shtick, a goofy make-believe thing. Not when the Republican presidential nominee spouts fascist ideology that echoes Hitler’s rise to power and spurs a literal rise in hate crimes against Muslims.
The beginning line in this paragraph is impressive. But my heart sank when I saw the last line there, and realized she was resorting to moral equivalence by claiming there's a "literal rise of hate crimes" against Islamists. Just what has that got to do with this subject anyway? Does she really buy all the victimology of the same movement whose Koran influenced them to commit anti-semitism? The one-sided attack on the GOP is another serious letdown, and does she also believe the claims made against Trump at immediate face value? It's also curious that, while she links to a NYT article that does acknowledge Islamofascists are behind the violence today in France, she doesn't actually mention that in her own words.

As mentioned once before, Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster once wrote a story in Action Comics 30 where the Man of Steel took on some Islamic bandit types, Lee Falk featured an Islamist in one of his Mandrake the Magician comic strips as a member of a kidnapping gang, and Will Eisner's last graphic novel, The Plot, was about Muslim-engineered antisemitism. It wouldn't be surprising if Kirby/Simon and their ilk had ever written a story involving Muslim-style criminals too. If she really thinks "hate crimes" against Muslims have literally risen in every way, then by that logic, Siegel, Shuster, Falk and Eisner are guilty of encouraging them too. But as studies by sources far better than a pretentious site like Common Dreams note, there's anything but a "rise" in alleged hate crimes against Islamists.

Reading that ill-advised line by Plummer made me wonder: if anybody wanted to pitch a story where Captain America actually takes on jihadists, without even resorting to the 9-11 Truther propaganda the 2002 Marvel Knights series went by, would people like her oppose it bitterly? I've got a terrible feeling the answer is "yes". If so, that would only compound the impression she has no idea what she wants the Star-Spangled Avenger to be about, or what the character should stand for/against.

This also made me think of something: even if Captain America hadn't been created by Jews, that doesn't mean offense at Brevoort/Spencer wouldn't be warranted. Similarly, if a minor character like Sylvester Pemberton, the Star-Spangled Kid (and later Skyman), who was created by Siegel, had fallen victim to such disgust, it would've been reprehensible too. And the same goes for if Ted Knight, the original Starman, and Janet VanDyne/the Wasp, had been subjected to such sickness. Point: it shouldn't be just because the creators of any notable superheroes, major or minor, are Jewish that offense should be taken. There were plenty of non-Jewish creators in the Golden Age, including William Marston of Wonder Woman fame, whose creations shouldn't be subjected to the PC abominations we're seeing in modern times either, and doing so would be as much a slap in the face to them as it is to Simon/Kirby. Speaking of which, must I remind that Simon was a Republican in his time, and condemned bin Laden? If Simon were alive today and wanted to vote for Trump, how would she react?

I'm very disappointed with Plummer for inserting such a slapdash line that dampens the edge from the article she wrote, and risks suggesting her sentiments aren't altruistic. Moral equivalence does nothing to help protest an injustice. Only being a realist and focusing on the meat-and-potatoes gist of the subjects does the job right.
