Every time a Jew is murdered by a Muslim who states clearly that he is killing the Jew in the name of Islam, the authorities and the news services fall all over themselves declaring that he was a nutcase, an extremist, or both. Or they play down the attack, refusing to call it what it is: Muslims simply obeying the Koran, which tells them to murder Jews.
“We do not want to predict the result of the investigations … and whether or not the criminal’s motives were political or not,” he told Reuters.
The BBC can’t figure out why a Jew was killed by a Muslim: “Security sources said it was not clear if the killer’s motives were political.”
The AP can’t figure out why a Muslim killed a Jew, either.
A Yemeni police official says a suspected Muslim extremist has been arrested for allegedly shooting and killing a Yemeni Jew.
The official says Moshe Yaish Nahari was gunned down in the northern town of Riydah on Thursday but police have little information about the motive behind the killing.
It’s a mystery. I wonder if we can solve it. Perhaps we should read the Yemeni media reports.
During investigations al-Ubadi said that he warned the Jews in the area through a message telling them they must either embrace Islam, leave the country or be killed, al-Suraihi said.
On Thursday morning, in a market in the area, al-Ubad met with Yahuda, the brother of the grand rabbi of Jews in the province, and held a conversation after which he shoot dead Yahuda.
Of course, the standard excuse is that he was mentally ill. Funny how many mentally ill Muslims kill Jews.
Reasons for the murder might be due to mental illness as al-Ubadi tow years ago killed his wife the case which ended with tribal reconciliation, al-Suraihi said.
Al-Ubadi was also a former pilot in the Yemeni Air Forces but he was dismissed for bad manners and extremist thoughts.
I’m not quite sure what “bad manners” is, but I suspect a bad translation of, perhaps, violent tendencies. The man murdered his wife two years ago, and was not imprisoned because he paid the blood debt to the victim’s family, a really charming facet of Yemeni culture. But also in the Yemeni media story are these facts:
The rabbi claimed all Jews in the two district of Raida and al-Souk al-Jadeed suffer many violations and continuous attacks.
He said that he filed several complaints about this to tribal elders and officials in the area but all went in vein, saying all people are unable to protect us.
“The situation of Jews has more worsened as my brother was killed in the daylight, in a market before the eyes of many people, but none was moved.” The rabbi said.
He said Jews are prevented from carrying weapons and wearing the traditional danger Jampyah.
I don’t know what that means, either. If any of my readers know any Yemeni Jews, perhaps they could find out for me.
Arutz Sheva didn’t seem to have any trouble finding the reason why a Jew was killed by a Muslim, either.
Moshe Nahari, a Torah teacher and a well-known figure in Yemen’s Jewish community, was murdered on Thursday morning in Reida, a city north of the capital city, Sanaa. According to the Arabic daily Ash-Sharq il-Awsat, Nahari’s attacker called out, â€œJew, receive the message of Islamâ€ before shooting at him.
[..] The murderer fired on Nahari several times, made sure he was dead, and then waited for police to come. Ash-Sharq il-Awsat identified the killer as Abed el-Abdi, a former pilot. El-Abdi murdered his wife two years ago, but was not imprisoned because he agreed to give his wife’s family financial compensation.
Yemeni officials said the shooter who killed Nahari was deranged. The shooter was arrested, and allegedly told police he had killed Nahari because â€œThose Jews need to become Muslim.â€
The Jewish community in Yemen has been under direct threats by Muslims for quite some time now.
Jewish residents of the Saada region in northern Yemen have received explicit threats to leave the area within 10 days from followers of radical cleric Hussein Badr Eddin al Houthi, according to the Saudi newspaper Al-Watan.
Following complaints from the threatened Jews, a meeting of the local authorities and the districtâ€™s sheikhs was held.
The Jews demanded they be treated as equal Yemenite citizens, and at the end of the meeting a religious verdict determining the relationship between them and the Muslims was given.
This verdict, which was also signed by Jews, did not guarantee them immunity from threats.
So after a little digging, we find that the reason a Muslim killed a Jew in broad daylight, in the marketplace, is because his religious leaders told him to do so. Not that he’s crazy. Not that he’s an “extremist.” But that he’s being a good Muslim, according to his own clerics.
The story linked above is from January of last year. Yemeni Jews have been in the country at least since the second century of the common era, and according to their legends, since the time of Solomon. Yet another thousands-year-old Jewish community, destroyed by Islam—the “religion of peace” that neither forcibly converts people, nor threatens “People of the Book,” who are supposedly under Muslim protection.
Lies, whitewashed by the world media, which I will detail in another post.
