Muslim Anti-Semitism in America - Star of David Carved on Infidel's Back

I have learned from Pajamas Media that an Arab author by the name of Mr. Alaa Alsaegh, who is an immigrant to the U.S. from Iraq, was attacked on August 14 of this year by Muslims in St. Louis, MO.  In the attack, Muslims stabbed him and carved a Star of David onto the flesh of his back.  






And not a peep from the Left-Stream Media on this hate crime. Shame. Shame. Shame.  What if the tables were turned would there be an outcry from the media? 


Apparently Muslims were offended because Mr. Alsaegh used his free speech rights to craft a poem called “Tears at the Heart of the Holocaust” on the website ArabsForIsrael.com to express his love for Jewish people and his sadness over 6 million Jews being murdered during the Holocaust. Mr. Alsaegh was branded an infidel by the Muslims in his community, believed his expression of freedom speech which was highly favorable to the Jewish people was a thought crime, and had threatened him many times prior to this outrageous, hate-filled, and vile incident. 


From Pajamas Media



In broad daylight and heavy traffic on Aug. 14, Alsaegh paid the price for expressing love for the Jews. And it happened in the streets of St. Louis, right here in the heart of America. Author and courageous freedom fighter Nonie Darwish describes the horrific event:
As he was driving at 10:30 in the morning on Compton St. near Park Ave., a small white car cut him off and hit his car, while another car stopped behind him. The occupants of the cars, some of whom wore security guard-type uniforms, quickly entered Alsaegh’s car, pointing a gun at him. They pushed his upper body down against the steering wheel, stabbed him and pulled off his shirt to expose his back. Then, with a knife, they carved the Star of David on his back while laughing as they recited his pro-Jewish poem.

The FBI has concluded that this was a hate-crime.

Jamie Glazov goes onto ask these three questions:


[1] What if Alaa Alsaegh was a Muslim who was attacked by Christians in St. Louis who carved a cross on his back? Do you think this story would make it into the media?
[2] What if Alaa Alsaegh was a black man who was attacked by skinheads who carved KKK or a swastika onto his back? Do you think this story would make it into the media?
[3] What if Alaa Alsaegh was a Jew who expressed love of Muslims and was attacked for that by Jews who carved a crescent moon and star, a recognized symbol of Islam, onto his back? Do you think the story would make it into the media?



Jamie gives one more example of the media's silence when there is brutality and hate-crimes committed against Jewish people. 


This phenomenon explains why Ilan Halimi, a Jewish boy in France, was kidnapped by a Muslim gang several years ago in Paris, held in a secret Muslim concentration camp and barbarically tortured for 23 days until he died (with the torturers calling his mother and reciting Koranic verses to her while she heard his screams), and his name is still to be spoken in our media.
It is understandable, of course, why Halimi’s name is not spoken — or known — in our culture. If it were, then the fact would become well known that in the apartment building in which he was tied up and tortured, the myriad of dwellers in the building, all Muslims, heard Ilan’s screams. Not only did they not do anything to stop it, but many of them got in line to participate. And they took gratification and consolation from torturing their Jew, for Islamic theology dispenses numerous mandates and incentives for Muslims to hate, hurt, and kill Jews. To accept this fact annihilates the foundational structures of the leftist belief system; it takes the legs out from the progressive lies on which our culture is built. It is safer, therefore, not to acknowledge the names of Alaa Alsaegh and Ilan Halimi, let alone what happened to them and why.
The notion that his own society is unjust is the bedrock of the leftist’s vision. To recognize the evil of the people who carved the Star of David on Alaa Alsaegh’s back or who tortured Ilan Halimi, and to recognize the evil of the ideology that inspired them, is to admit the existence of pernicious adversarial faiths. Such an admission concedes that there are cultures and systems that are much more unjust than ours. This is an untenable step for leftists to take, because it means acknowledging that there is something superior about our civilization that’s worth saving and defending.
Showing compassion for Alaa Alsaegh and Ilan Halimi is, therefore, extremely dangerous for any leftist, as it would undermine his political faith. As I have documented in United in Hate, it would also expose him to potential excommunication from his social community — which is unfathomable for the majority of leftists, whose politics are, in the end, their social lives and, therefore, their sense of personal identity.

Where are all the "moderate" Muslims in our society who are willing to speak up against all violence, violence against the Jewish people or any other people besides Muslims?  But yet when people speak the truth and reveal the harsh intolerant nature of Islam they are called "Islamophobes".  I read Eric Metaxas's book on Dietrich Bonhoeffer and in it he pointed out that people were marginalized and demonized when they spoke out against Hitler, and then it was too late when people realized the evil nature of Hitler.   People need to wake up. 


BTW - I have been working on the Eagle Freedom Links so that post will be up this weekend. Sorry about the lack of Eagle Freedom posts the past few weeks but I've been feeling under the weather for awhile. Any suggestions for themes would be greatly appreciated.

How sad, Teresa. How sad.

A good blog post, T. Many people turn the other way. Where were the moderate muslims when little Ilan was being tortured. Not one called the police? I will not hold my breath for protection by moderate muslims. They are simply the taqqiya (lies) that muslims hide behind. Such as "look how moderate we are" until their numbers are great enough to back up violent totalitarianism. Then the gloves come off. Each and every time.

This is heartbreaking. That poor man, and in Missouri, of all places.

The religion of tolerance prevails again. And still no one speaks against radical Islam.

It's here in the States and people had better start waking up.

I feel bad for this poor man. I hope his scars heal, both the physical and the mental.

No offense meant to anyone who wonders why moderate Muslims don't speak against this sort of thing, but let me ask you to do something...

Put yourself in their shoes, just for a moment or two.

If, by speaking against one of your co-religionists for something heinous they did - which is actually sanctioned in your Holy Writ - you could quite literally pay for it with your life and the life of your spouse and children (in particularly brutal ways)... what would you do?

Same thing applies for anybody - not just other Muslims - when they blather on about Islam being a 'Religion of Peace' and that we shouldn't be Islamophobic; beneath that lies the unspoken plea, Please don't pi$$ them off, or they'll kill us.

I don't condone them not speaking out ... but I bloody well understand it.

Great post, this kind of thing needs to be exposed, we must never again allow this to become acceptable.

On a side note, I think people do not realize what a Semite is. Arabs are actually Semites, but for some reason it has become a term used only for Jews.

This is not surprising when you know that the america media generally leans left and the left in this country to a large extent is pro-arab when it comes to the relationship between Israel and the arab states. If you notices some of the signs carried by the wall street protesters many of them are anti-semitic and anti-Israeli. The MSM is careful not to show many of these, because they realize that most americans don't agree. Reporting on a story like this just goes against the grain with liberal reporters.

Good grief, I never hear of this, just unbelievable that the msm would ignore. Shame on them and their Muslim masters.
