[Jpost] Police have released a knife-wielding Syrian refugee who had to be subdued by pepper spray by security guards outside a Berlin synagogue after he crossed its security barrier.
Investigators said they had to release the man, a 23-year-old from Damascus, because they did not have enough evidence to charge him with a crime at this point. The investigation is ongoing, according to the state Prosecutor’s Office.
The response was woefully inadequate and even dangerous, Josef Schuster, head of the Central Council of Jews in Germany, said in a statement Monday. He said the violent nature of Friday’s incident prior to Shabbat services at the historic Neue Synagogue should have merited a tougher response.
A "dangerous man" is now on the lam, he said.
According to a statement from the Prosecutor’s Office, two security guards drew guns on the man, identified by police as Murad M., after he crossed the security barrier, but he did not respond to their order to drop his knife and continued mumbling in Arabic. Local media reported that he said "God is great" in Arabic, a phrase often used by Arab terrorists.
“Allahu akhbar,” said Murad M. to the volunteer guards while they awaited the arrival of the police, and “Fuck Israel.” The motivation seems brutally clear to me, but then I believe open threats, unsubtle naif that I am.
Police subdued the man using pepper spray. He dropped the knife and was arrested.
The man has a residency permit ending in December 2020 and did not have a prior police record.
No wonder, when he is released without charge for so blatantly illegal behaviour. It’s as if no one wanted any official record to suggest he might ever become a problem.
On Saturday morning, the man was released after a search of his apartment initially failed to turn up any evidence for a motive.
India too has severe gun laws like EU countries but we allowed a 'community watch' type militia in Himachal Pradesh to arm themselves against antisemitic attack. The Home Ministry even gave them some Tavor rifles, since the IWI had made them for us.
Berlin press is NOT amused.
Btw it is illegal to carry a knife of reported length in public, let alone threaten police with it.

So is it in France, EC. Didn't save the police.
Isn't enough for the media to write and speak against the bureaucratic largesse to muslims. It is the people themselves who need to protect their country. Weapons and laws are not enough to protect people. What it requires most is public intent.
I've seen third world villagers mob an armed posse of sasquatches and beat them to death with sticks and shovels. When the police came to 'rescue them', they were beaten too !
I think Austrians are faring better in that regard. The populations of the west have become easy targets because of lax immigration control, zero protection of the citizen against the 'affirmatively' privileged diversity, and disconnected leaders with no accountability.
Next thing you know, you have your own Trump/Orban/BoJo.
According to Sarah Hoyt
Even in Europe I suspect when this bursts — and there it will burst. The elites flaying and screaming is only making it worse — you’re going to see things that will make you wonder why on Earth good American boys died in WWII. Because we’re about to get National Socialism, the sequel. National because they’re getting tired of the international elites (and who isn’t) and socialism because the poor bastards have not experienced anything else their entire adult lives.
[DAWN] The Jamaat Ulema-e-Islam ...the political wing of the Pak Taliban... -Fazl (JUI-F) on Monday termed as "fabricated" a document being shared widely on social media that lists a set of instructions allegedly by the party to the participants of its upcoming anti-government protest in Islamabad.
[DAWN] The Jammu Kashmir ...a disputed territory lying between India and Pakistain. After partition, the Paks grabbed half of it and call it Azad (Free) Kashmir. The remainder they refer to as "Indian Occupied Kashmir". They have fought four wars with India over it, the score currently 4-0 in New Delhi's favor. After 72 years of this nonsense, India cut the Gordian knot in 2019, removing the area's special status, breaking off Ladakh as a separate state, and allowing people from other areas to settle (or in the case of the Pandits, to resettle) there.... Liberation Front (JKLF) on Monday asked the Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) government to remove the containers at the Muzaffarabad-Srinagar Highway which had obstructed the movement of their march towards the Line of Control (LoC) since Sunday, warning that the marchers would otherwise continue to stage a sit-in before the hurdles for "an indefinite period".
"The AJK government should remove the hurdles and allow the marchers to cross the ceasefire line (LoC) or else the sit-in will continue at this place for an indefinite period," said Mohammad Rafiq Dar, central spokesperson for JKLF, at a presser in Jiskool, located 8 kilometres before the LoC, where the administration had placed containers, barbed wires, electricity poles and mounds of earth to block the march.
"Otherwise, the government should bring here any special representative of the United Nations ...the Oyster Bay money pit... Secretary General as well as representatives of the five permanent UN Security Council members so that we are able to give them our charter of demands," added Dar, who was flanked by JKLF’s ailing acting chairman Abdul Hameed Butt and other leaders. "And a pony. We want a pony, too!"
"How can we lead a normal life here when our brothers and sisters across the ceasefire line are going through nightmarish conditions at the hands of the Indian army," he questioned.
The JKLF front man said the best option in the prevailing situation was the deployment of UN peacekeeping forces in Jammu and Kashmir until a plebiscite was held to ascertain the opinion of Kashmiris about their future.
He said other demands would be shared soon in the shape of a memorandum.
The JKLF led marchers had reached Jiskool on Sunday afternoon to be greeted by the road blockades. While a majority of them returned to Chinari and other rear areas to spend the night, the leaders and many others took shelter under a big canopy that was erected on the main road late at night.
Baghdad (IraqiNews.com) ‐ Internet services were partially back to normal in Iraq after several days of blackout due to ongoing anti-government protests, which entered their seventh day.
It’s unclear which of Iraqi districts restored the internet service, Sky TV channel reported.
Earlier on Wednesday, internet access was cut off across much of Iraq including the capital Baghdad with connectivity falling below 70%, internet blockage observatory NetBlocks said, amid renewed anti-government protests that turned violent and spread nationwide.
Social media platforms Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, as well as messaging application WhatsApp all appeared to be have been disabled across Iraq except in the semi-autonomous Kurdistan Region which has a separate internet infrastructure.
The services were only accessible by using a VPN, which effectively disguises the location of a device.
No doubt. Just not the malicious hands they’re pretending they believe them to be.
[PRESSTV] Iraqi officials say there are "malicious hands" behind the killing of both protesters and security forces during the recent spate of unrest in Baghdad and some other cities.
Interior Ministry front man Saad Maan confirmed for the first time on Sunday that 104 people had been killed, including eight security officers, and more than 6,000 maimed in the protests.
Maan said the ministry was working with other government institutions to find out who was behind the killings. According to medical sources, the majority of protesters killed were struck by bullets.
The protests began last Tuesday, with demonstrators calling for better living conditions. The rallies soon turned into riots as some protesters started vandalizing public properties and attempted to enter the Green Zone in the capital Baghdad -- which houses government offices and foreign diplomatic missions.
On Saturday night, armed elements and violent rioters attempted to take over local TV stations in Baghdad after the government removed a days-long curfew.
Maan said protesters burned 51 public buildings and eight political party headquarters but Iraqi security forces did not confront them.
[THEBAGHDADPOST] The Iraqi military has acknowledged for the first time that some of its troops used "excessive force" against unarmed protesters as the corpse count from six days of anti-government protests
The statement came after at least 15 people were killed overnight in Sadr City, a densely populated Shia neighbourhood of Baghdad, where security forces fired live ammunition at crowds of demonstrators.
Adel Abdel Mahdi, Iraq’s embattled prime minister, ordered the army to withdraw from Sadr City after the killings and be replaced by police units.
"Excessive force outside the rules of engagement was used and we have begun to hold accountable those commanding officers who carried out these wrong acts," the military said in a statement. "Our bad"
The acknowledgement came as social media was flooded with videos of Iraqi troops opening fire on unarmed demonstrators. One video appeared to show the military firing a rocket at a crowd of protesters.
[THEBAGHDADPOST] Speaker of Arab Parliament ...At the Arab League Summit of 2001-Amman, the Arab states came up with a resolution to have the Secretary General create a Parliament. Since throughout the Arab world rights accrue to the states, not to the people, each member state sends four members and nobody gets to vote on which ones. The headquarters was in Damascus until in 2012 the sessions were suspended and transferred to Cairo. The League is now preparing to move the headquarters of the parliament to Baghdad, from whence it will issue Pronouncements of Grave Import.... Dr. Meshal Fahm al-Sulami, has criticized the ongoing situation in Iraq.
Al-Sulami condemned the killing of demonstrators and security forces and setting public buildings on fire.
In a statement issues on Sunday he called on the Iraqi government to respond to legitimate rights of the demonstrators.
Al-Sulami further reiterated the full support of the Arab Parliament for the security, stability and illusory sovereignty of Iraq and non-interference in its internal affairs, the Saudi Press Agency reported.
[THEBAGHDADPOST] Iranian government front man, Ali Rubaie called on the Iraqi people to show more restraint to overcome the current ordeal and fulfill their legitimate demands."The Iraqi government has confirmed that there have been no festivities between security forces and demonstrators, and that opportunist groups have committed this crime, and we call on the Iraqi people to exercise greater restraint and seek democratic and legal solutions to meet their demands," Rubaie said at his weekly presser. Then his lips fell off.
He added: "The Iraqi citizens, within the follow-up to their demands, must be vigilant required to prevent the bad people from exploiting their protests and not be allowed to achieve their evil aims."

Formerly a fairly civilized nation ruled by a Shah, it became a victim of Islamic revolution in 1979. The nation is today noted for spontaneously taking over other countries' embassies, maintaining whorehouses run by clergymen, involvement in international drug trafficking, and financing sock puppet militias to extend the regime's influence. The word Iran is a cognate form of Aryan, the abbreviation IRGC is a cognate form of Stürmabteilung (or SA), the term Supreme Guide is a cognate form of either Shah or Führer or maybe both, and they hate JewsZionists Jews. Their economy is based on the production of oil and vitriol... Militia in Iraq and Syria (IMIS) has said it was ready to implement government orders to prevent "a coup d'etat or a rebellion" after protests that have left more than 100 dead.
Speaking to news hounds, Faleh al-Fayyadh, who heads the force, said he wanted "the fall of corruption, not the fall of the regime."
"We know who stands behind these protests. The plan to bring down the regime has failed," Fayyadh said.
Protests swept through Baghdad and major Iraqi cities last Tuesday with calls to reduce youth unemployment and corruption but have spiraled to demand a total overhaul of the Iraqi political system.
The Iraqi government says more than one hundred protesters were killed and hundreds maimed as security forces reacted to the unrest, while other reports said government snipers on rooftops directly targeted protesters.
On Monday, Iraq’s military admitted for the first time it had used "excessive force" against the protesters.
[PRESSTV] More than 16,000 scared residents have fled an unrest-hit city in Indonesia's Papua region, the military says, as one of the deadliest eruptions of violence in years sparked calls for an independent probe.
Several dozen people were killed when violence broke out in Wamena city last month, with some victims burned alive when buildings were ablaze, and others stabbed in the chaos, according to authorities.
Since mid-August, Papua has been hit by waves of mass protests and violence fueled by racism against indigenous Papuans by Indonesians from other parts of the archipelago, as well as calls for self-rule in the impoverished region.
The majority of Papuans are Christian and ethnic Melanesian with few cultural ties to the rest of Moslem-majority Indonesia.
On Monday, the air force said about 11,400 people -- mostly migrants colonists -- had been evacuated aboard military aircraft.
Several thousand more have left aboard commercial aircraft since late September, it added.
[Bangkok Post] A Thai court on Friday approved the Department of Special Investigation's (DSI) request to further detain for questioning a suspected militant who was arrested on Thursday after 14 years in hiding.
Mahamarormuelee Samae, a resident of Yala province, was taken into custody by the DSI in Pattani's Nong Chik district, where he was interviewed about bomb and gun attacks in Pattani's Khok Pho district last month. The 56-year-old suspect was accused of conspiring with others in recruiting people for the Barisan Revolusi Nasional (BRN) and wanted by the DSI for his alleged involvement in insurgency activities between 1993-2004.
Mr Mahamarormuelee is also accused of being involved in the Sept 16 attacks on a teacher protection unit in Khok Pho district in which two people were killed and four others injured. It is alleged that he procured mobile phones and SIM cards for the attackers. Police found one of the SIM cards at the scene and traced it to Mr Mahamarormuelee, a religious teacher at a school in Satun.
On Friday, the Criminal Court approved his detention for 12 days, from Oct 4-15.
[IsraelTimes] Under terms of 2015 nuclear deal, Tehran had committed to not using this array until late 2023; enrichment now at pre-deal daily capacity, country’s nuclear chief says.

, in a move likely to intensify pressure on Europe ...the land mass occupying the space between the English Channel and the Urals, also known as Moslem Lebensraum... to save Tehran’s collapsing nuclear deal with world powers.
Ali Akbar Salehi told Iranian state TV that an array of 30 IR-6 centrifuges will be inaugurated in the coming weeks.
Under the terms of its 2015 deal ‐ which the US unilaterally withdrew from over a year ago ‐ Iran had committed to not using the array until late 2023.
Iran has steadily increased its breaches of the nuclear accord as it pushes its European partners to find a way around US sanctions that have kept it from selling oil abroad and crippled the Iranian economy.
Salehi also said Iran is now producing up to six kilograms of enriched uranium daily.
"It means we have restored pre-deal" capacity, he said.
In September, Iran inaugurated an array of 20 IR-6 centrifuges that can produce enriched uranium 10 times as fast as the IR-1 that Iran was already using.
Iran is currently enriching uranium to about 4.5%. Prior to the nuclear deal, it only reached up to 20%, which is a short technical step away from the weapons-grade levels of 90%.
[ALMASDARNEWS] The United States will not support The Sick Man of Europe Turkey ...Qatar's satrapy in Asia Minor... in its operation in Northern Syria, the White House announced after phone talks between US President Donald Trump ...dictatorial for repealing some (but not all) of the diktats of his predecessor, misogynistic because he likes pretty girls, homophobic because he doesn't think gender bending should be mandatory, truly a man for all seasons...... and his Ottoman Turkish counterpart His Enormity, Sultan Recep Tayyip Erdogan the First ...Turkey's version of Mohammed Morsi but they voted him back in so they deserve him. It's a sin, a shame, and a felony to insult the president of Turkey. In Anatolia did Recep Bey a stately Presidential Palace decree, that has 1100 rooms. That's 968 more than in the White House, 400 more than in Versailles, and 325 more than Buckingham Palace, so you know who's really more important...

"Today, President Donald J. Trump spoke with President Recep Tayyip Erdogan of Turkey by telephone. Turkey will soon be moving forward with its long-planned operation into Northern Syria. The United States Armed Forces will not support or be involved in the operation, and United States forces, having defeated the ISIS ...embracing their inner Islamic Brute... territorial ’Caliphate,’ will no longer be in the immediate area," the White House statement says.
According to Ottoman Turkish presidential front man Ibrahim Kalin, Ankara will create a safe zone in Syria to exterminate forces of Evil and ensure the safe return of the refugees to their homeland.

"[Iran’s] deterrence [power] has today reached a point where Israel and Saudi Arabia are worried that something may happen, leaving no trace of them," the semi-official Entekhab news website quoted holy man Abdollah Haji Sadeghi, Khamenei’s representative in the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), as saying.
Iran has accomplished far more in the past six months since taking the approach of "resistance" than it has done negotiating in the past six years, he said.
Iran is accused of pursuing aggressive policies in the region, including attacking Saudi Arabia’s oil facilities, threatening shipping in the Arabian Gulf, and continuing to support proxy organizations in Leb, Iraq, and Yemen ...an area of the Arabian Peninsula sometimes mistaken for a country. It is populated by more antagonistic tribes and factions than you can keep track of... Tensions in the region have been heighted after the September 14 attacks on Saudi Aramco oil facilities, which Iran is widely accused of carrying out.
Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman ...Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia as of 2016.... has said that the response to Iran must be well-calculated, adding that "The political and peaceful solution is much better than the military one."
The US said it will be deploying a Patriot battery, four Sentinel RADARs, and nearly 200 support personnel to Saudi Arabia in response to the recent attacks.
Sadeghi had previously claimed that Iranian-backed Hezbollah can inflict irreparable damage on Israel. Hezbollah and Israel clashed over the Lebanese border in late August. The terrorist organization recently reaffirmed its loyalty to Iran, with its leader His Eminence Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah ...The satrap of the Medes and the Persians in Leb... saying that Khamenei was key to its foundation.
Iran continues to threaten to destroy Israel. IRGC commander Hossein Salami said last week that Iran is capable of attacking its enemies anywhere, and added that Israel’s destruction is now an "achievable goal.”
