Jihad occurred in Ohio, and it's possible that the assailant was attacking the restaurant because the owner came from Israel:
A man wielding a machete on Thursday stormed a restaurant owned by an Israeli in Columbus, Ohio, CNN reported.

The man attacked several people before he was killed by police, authorities said.

The suspect was the only one killed. Nobody inside the Nazareth restaurant and deli said they knew him, according to police.

The owner of the restaurant was identified as Hany Baransi, an Arab Christian originally from Haifa.

Sources told NBC News on Friday that investigators are looking into whether the attacker carried out his attack the eatery in the mistaken belief that the owner was Jewish.

Columbus police Sgt. Rich Weiner told CNN after the attack that the suspect "immediately began swinging a machete at customers and employees inside. There was no rhyme or reason as to who he was going after as soon as he walked in, according to some of the witnesses."

The attacker, identified to NBC News by law enforcement sources as Mohamed Barry, had asked a worker at the Nazareth Restaurant and Deli where the owner was from, investigators said.

Four people were in the attack injured and transported to the hospital, according to CNN. One victim who was in critical condition underwent surgery and is now "stable," Weiner said
While it's likely the jihadist targeted the owner and patrons because he thought they were Jewish, it's also possible he'd done it because he viewed them as pro-Israel. The FBI is investigating this incident as a lone wolf terrorist attack (Hat tip: Pajamas Media):
CBS News has identified the suspect as Mohamed Barry, however neither 10TV nor Columbus Police have confirmed the suspect’s name. CBS News also reports Barry has a Somali background and may have traveled to Dubai in 2012.

Law enforcement tells them the incident appears to be the type of “lone wolf terrorist attacks they’re trying to stop.”

The FBI is assisting in the investigation.
The scumbag was probably a Salafist too.

Update: here's more on Breitbart.


The Haaretz paper has a sugarcoated article on how participants in anime/manga conventions in Egypt go about:
EgyCon was the brainchild of Islam Risha, 27, the self-proclaimed “godfather of Egyptian anime events.” He is a big bear of a man with a charming baritone and zebibah (the marking on the forehead of devout Muslims).

Risha discovered anime 10 years ago, when he walked into a cyber café and became intrigued by a bunch of hirsute men watching cartoons. After peeking over their shoulders for a bit, he was hooked. He began connecting Egyptian anime-lovers through Facebook and organizing small get-togethers – the second of which took place one day after the Arab spring protests broke out at Tahrir Square on January 25, 2011.

“The country was having a revolution, but we were sitting somewhere else talking about anime,” Risha recalls. “We didn’t care.”
First, I wouldn't take that part about "not caring" about the "Arab spring" at face value. That could be taqqiya, and what if some of the local otakus took part in all those riots?

Now, here's an example of how Islam is not left at the door of anime fandom there:
Doha, 27, is dressed as Ahri, a voluptuous fox-lady with nine white tails and flowing blue hair from the video game “League of Legends.” But instead of showing cleavage and wearing a miniskirt, she is modestly wrapped in a long-sleeved dress over thick white leggings.
Gee, in that case, why be a fan at all? Surely the character's styling and what the creators stand for goes against her thinking?
It was only when Egyptians gained access to the natural habitat of the otaku – the Internet – that they learned about the broad subculture that surrounds manga. But in Egypt, access to the Internet is not widespread, so to be a manga fan usually requires being financially well-off.

“It’s a matter of social classes,” explains Noor, 18, who wears a hijab and a hoodie from “Avenger.” (Many of those interviewed for this article asked that only their first names be used for reasons of privacy.) “The majority of Egypt is poor,” she says, “and doesn’t have access to culture or the Internet.” So the otaku are middle class? “Upper-middle,” she laughs.
The reason internet access isn't so easy to get in Egypt is because of the religious/socialist structure - coupled with anti-western hostility - that's rendered the country poor. And it wouldn't surprise if there's mutawa (religious authorities) still prevalent around Egypt who'd persecute the attendants for taking up hobbies that represent democratic countries, or anything they consider anathema to Islam. Speaking of which:
Cosplay can be a costly hobby, especially without local specialty stores. Most costumes at EgyCon are handmade, with a few purchased from Amazon (reluctantly, admits one participant, because it represents the West). The attendees all enjoy a level of social comfort; one of them, Ziad, 17, says he travelled to Japan recently on a family vacation.

Content broadcast on state television is subject to censorship; parts of shows that might offend the country’s more pious Muslims are scrapped. “In Egypt, the government has to watch a show before airing it,” Noor explains. “When we watched ‘Detective Conan,’ there would often be missing scenes, and some episodes weren’t broadcast at all.” But the Internet has given Egyptians access to newer, edgier and, more importantly, uncensored shows.
When some early anime products were subject to editing in the USA, it was never anything as severe as this. I have no doubt, however, that what enraged the Islamic censors had to do with sexuality, whereas in the USA, it would be more along the lines of jarring violence, and even in the early phases, there were plenty of anime series full of that. Don't be surprised if a lot of those situations remain intact over in Egypt.
At EgyCon, there is no contradiction between faith and fantasy: the overwhelming majority of otaku are practicing Muslims. Men excuse themselves to pray during the salat (the five obligatory daily prayers) and women have skillfully incorporated the basic dress codes of Islam (covering their hair; not showing skin above the wrists or ankles) into their cosplays. Even women in full-body niqabs make it work, dressing up as masked characters, robed sages or ambiguous ninjas.

However, the competing forces of the precepts of Islam and the cultural trends of Japanese otaku – which can be sexually suggestive – do create some tensions.

Abdul, 17, who is dressed as the ninja Kakashi from “Naruto,” is clearly upset about how some women don’t wear a hijab for their cosplay because they want to look more like the Japanese.

“It’s just not right,” he says. “You can’t be a Muslim only on the days you feel like it ... I love anime and come here to show my love for it, but we also have our own culture. We should also celebrate and be proud of it.”
And there we have further proof how there's Islamists in Egypt who won't put their differences aside and recognize the legitimacy of sexuality. Who think the "culture" they go by is something to be proud of. And, who think beauty is bad. I'm sorry, but anybody that opposed to creativity and freedom is not a real otaku.

Two Muslim girls arrested for trying to attack with knives let it be known they were indoctrinated very badly:
The wannabe teen terrorists were brought to a juvenile court Thursday in Ramle.

The two 14-year-olds were charged in connection with a terror attack at the city’s central bus station on Feb. 4.

Both girls, residents of Ramle, were charged with attempted murder, conspiracy to commit a crime and possession of a knife.

The indictment submitted by the prosecutor indicates the two teens had talked about the current terror wave about a month before the attack, and together conspired to become shahidas, (martyrs), in a holy war against “the Jews” by being killed while stabbing as many Jews as possible to death, according to police.
And all this is the result of Islamist brainwashing:
Known throughout the Middle East by his nom de guerre, “Abu Mazen,” Abbas has quietly headed an effort to deliberately brainwash an entire generation to grow up as future jihadists and anti-Israel terrorists.

PA leaders continue to glorify Arab killers with Jewish and Israeli blood on their hands. They honor them by marking events, public streets and other venues in their names.

Social media campaigns, sermons in the mosques, school textbooks and government-approved children’s television programs all continue to wipe away the existence of the State of Israel. In its place, such media encourage their young impressionable consumers to launch daring, bloodthirsty attacks against Jews and Israelis.
So it's no wonder these two Muslim girls could've been so far gone at an early age either.

The case of gender segregation in Saudi Arabia is still prevalent, as seen with this latest distasteful news:
A Saudi court sentenced six women and five men to imprisonment and flogging on charges of “obscenity” after they were caught together in a villa in the city of Jedda.

The Jedda Police’s vice squad raided the seaside house following complaints from neighbors. Alcohol and indecent photos were found in the possession of the revelers, some of whom were reportedly drunk and resisted arrest.

The court initially sentenced them to between eight days’ and a year’s imprisonment and 150 lashes, but after an appeal was upheld they were sentenced to between two months and a year’s imprisonment and 300 lashes.

By law, Saudi women are banned from mingling with men to whom they’re not related

This is the latest setback for women in the country.
The same article notes that the Starbucks coffee chain has been panned for adhering to the country's offensive gender segregation laws. I think this is grounds for boycotting Starbucks for doing business in such a hellhole.


Herbert London wrote about the toll all the Muslim interlopers in Europe are taking on the continent, and how Germany's politicians have screwed up royally:
Roberta Flack, years earlier, sang what has become the Europeans theme song, “Killing Me Softly.” Despite the reported wilding spree of at least a thousand North African refugees who groped women at the New Year celebration in Cologne, Germany, despite allegations of two rapes, despite condemnation by Prime Minister Merkel, the mayor of the city has requested that women monitor their “code of conduct.” Apparently German authorities will contest to their last breath that tolerance dedication will not yield. This is the tolerance that kills, softly at first and violently in time.

What Germany represents is a continental death knell in which tolerance trumps personal safety and even survival. Compassion is the sentiment of the day. Yet it is hard to imagine inviting one million citizens into the country who are not assimilable with many on the public dole. This is one of those rare moments in history when people are paid for bad behavior.

Much of the chaos Germany now endures was predictable. After all, many Muslim men treat woman as inferior, mere objects for their sexual delectation. The Koran endorses the proposition that a woman has half the rights of a man in any legal proceeding. Nonetheless, the compassion crusade goes on.
If they intend to pay welfare (or jizya) to these invaders, then that too will confirm socialism hasn't worn off in one of the countries that made the worst use out of it.

But those who know what the Hamas operates on can probably guess their excuse. The Wash. Post says:
Hamas, the Islamic militant group that rules Gaza, said Sunday that it has killed one of its own commanders over unnamed “moral and behavioral violations.”

Hamas said in a short Twitter statement that Mahmoud Eshtewi, a local member of the group’s military wing, was killed after he confessed. It said the decision to kill Eshtewi, who was detained in January 2015, was taken by its “military and religious judiciary,” a previously unheard-of department.

Hamas seized the Gaza Strip from forces loyal to the Western-backed Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas in 2007. During periods of fighting against Israel, Hamas has killed dozens of Palestinians it accused of spying.

The group is not known to have killed its own members during peacetime, and the vague language used in the statement indicated Eshtewi was killed for reasons other than spying.

“We are shocked,” his sister, Buthaina, screamed over the phone. “He can’t be executed based on the reasons they provide.”
Unfortunately, he could be, for it makes little difference to them, given that their ideology is Islam. Presumably, he was executed because he didn't follow Islam as they demanded. It still isn't clear, but that could've been it. It's just no surprise that Hamas could kill even their own over the most petty of reasons.
