No university is proposing legislation to prohibit Islamic Jew-hatred.
President Obama is not taking to the airwaves to condemn Islamic Jew-hatred.
No media frenzy is decrying Islamic Jew-hatred.
No media swarm at the Miami synagogue.

The real question we are supposed to be asking is, will the islamophobia never end?

“Muslim accused of threatening to cut off heads of Jewish congregation denies allegations”, Iran Aware, March 10, 2015

muslim miamiMIAMI BEACH, Fla. (WSVN) — A man accused of threatening the congregation of a Miami Beach synagogue over the weekend denied having made the incriminating remarks after returning to the scene of the incident late Tuesday afternoon.

Diego Chaar was arrested Sunday and is facing misdemeanor assault and stalking charges. When asked why he approached Orthodox Jews at Ohev Shalom Synagogue Saturday night with the purpose of converting them, Chaar replied, “I want to take them to paradise. I don’t want them to burn in hell for the rest of eternity. I feel like that they’re worshipping right now is nothing, it’s fake. It don’t exist, in my opinion.”

Rabbi Pinchas Weberman, the synagogue’s head rabbi for over 54 years and a chaplain for Miami Beach Police and Miami-Dade Police, said he remains concerned for his congregation’s safety after the suspect approached members of the congregation, including his son. “A group of young men were outside in the front area, the front lawn, sitting on the benches, and they were approached by somebody who was screaming, ‘Allahu akbar (‘God is great’ in Arabic). I’m gonna cut your heads off.’ He repeated that, and they went and called the police. They used the term that the terrorists used when they killed the infidels, and they threatened to cut their heads off.”

Miami Beach Police patrolled the synagogue Tuesday to ensure the safety of the congregation, but the stepped-up police presence did not stop Chaar from showing up outside the premises. He told 7News he has the “responsibility” to convert people to Islam, adding he converted while in prison.

Chaar, however, said he didn’t want to come across as he was forcing the congregation members to convert to Islam. “I don’t got to force it upon them, but I could offer them my insight, I could offer them what I think is the truth, is the right path to Heaven,” he said.

Chaar then denied having said he wanted to cut off the congregants’ heads. “Oh I did not say that,” he said.

Weberman said he now wants the case investigated as a hate crime. “I never like to over-exaggerate, and I don’t like to minimize, so what I do is, I report this to law enforcement agencies, those that I feel are responsible for it and those that I feel will take a professional approach to it and handle it,” he said.

The rabbi is also urging his community to be more cautious of any suspicious or harmful behavior. “I like the Jewish community to be aware of these things,” said Weberman. “It’s happened in certain places, which it was really a serious thing, and therefore, if they see anything suspicious, they should report it immediately.”

    Two words: open carry

    • mjazzguitar

      I was thinking concealed carry.

    • OldNYFirefighter

      You can’t open carry in Florida, it is CCW with a permit only.

    • paul

      Two better words; conceal carry. They will shoot the armed man on sight. Better to wait till they point and someone else then surprise them to hell.
      The cops shoot the armed man, too.

  • CJP

    He’s going to offer people “insight” and “truth”? Who want’s to leave the civilized world and live like wild dogs?

    Clear cut case of Jewphobia.

  • Nathan

    If I was a muslim, I’d be an apostate. Just so I could sleep at night. How can anybody who’s not mentally retarded align themselves with this ‘religion’?

    • paul

      So they don’t kill you. islam is not optional.

  • wtd

    Chaar’s denial is pathetic, why hide behind a car then? Also,

    “Weberman then called 911 from his cell phone, the arrest affidavit says, and police responded. But before they arrived Weberman had managed to follow Chaar and spotted him hiding behind a car. Police briefly questioned Chaar and wrote up a report, but released him.

    Then, according to the police report, about 45 minutes later or shortly after 10 p.m., Chaar returned to the synagogue, walked past Weberman again, and repeated “Allahu Akbar,” before walking away. The victim called police again, who found Chaar on Sunday, took him to the police station, and arrested him.

    He feels that the best way to show the benefits of what he believes, and gain the true peace that he himself feels, is to shout Allahu Akbar I will cut your head off.
    Nice.
    He doesn’t have a silver Toyota yet.

    We are often told that we post these things “too much” by those who refuse to acknowledge or believe that these things are happening, are in denial or who just do not care. They also say we are making too much out of nothing. I can feel them scoffing. I’ve had to “unfriend” several. It is frustrating and infuriating, not to mention insulting. But, then again, those who say such things are
    brainwashed and programmed. I mean, after all, if it’s not in the “news.”………

    First adult I’ve seen in the room.
    Point is: ppl ARE waking up to the very real threat. Despite CAIR’s squawking.

    • OldNYFirefighter

      CAIR is an agent of the Muslim Brotherhood & probably laundering money to support ISIS. Obama has more visits from CAIR than he does from out military leaders.

      • Philip

        Until they uniformly, publicly denounce Taqiya, how can even the meekest Muslim be trusted?

        • JacktheRipper

          “denounce taqiyya.”? That’s like asking someone to promise not to make promises. A renunciation by muslims would be worthless. To them taqiyya is serving their god, their filthy demonic god. Good luck changing their minds about that one.

          • Philip

            It’s on them to do what they wish with their philosophy. I choose not to believe them. Seems to make more sense than trusting anything they say.

          • JacktheRipper

            You’re right, I don’t believe them either. Instead I look at
            the ill-effects of their presence in Europe to know the
            outcome here. I prefer the evidence of my own eyes and
            people I trust and respect, like Geller, and Wilders, Le
            Pen, R. Spencer, D. Murray, Harris, Hirsi Ali, and Hitchens
            (deceased) to know the true nature of psychopathic islam.
            The same things that motivate muslims to commit religious
            mass murder in the M.E. are the same things that motive
            “our” enclaved muslims to riot, sue, protest for sharia,
            threaten, and murder us in the streets, they’re all soldiers for the same demon-god, all doing their strategic best to fulfill Islam’s plan of world domination.

            And I hope you don’t think I was snarky in my first reply. It just struck me as odd that you think a muslim renunciation would have any value. Kinda like asking nazis not to hate Jews and expecting the request to be sufficient for change. Oh, if only it were that simple.

      • paul

        I thought CAIR was our military leader, when mus bro hood was not available. We voted them in!

  • Philip

    Ok second adult technically, but Pam is more akin to an angel.

  • Only JUDAISM and CHRISTIANITY is RIGHT as we have the same GOD who art in HEAVEN!!

  • irwinpenny18

    Hey Chaar, you despicable, ugly, animal, ex con, druggie–Hashem is greater, and I am going to cut your balls off!!! And by the way, your mother is ugly, just like you.

    • SJS

      He looks human. Undomesticated, or at least reverting to the wild.

  • Larenzo1

    When he uttered the words he was going to cut there heads off someone should have pulled a pistol and shot him. Self defense

    • JacktheRipper

      Yeah, and then just resume the service as if nothing had happened. lol Then the janitor sweeps him away. With respect of course. lol

      • PPs43

        I keep my distance.
        Blade can’t reach my neck.
        Squeeze, trap, and reset.
        Two to the chest.
        Do it again,
        One to the head.
        Nothing more needed.
        Mohammed is dead.

    • paul

      Then Holder sharpton and obola will come…..They have control of the US government

  • Steve Smith

    Interesting, isn’t it, that Obama’s plan is good for ten years? Hudna, anyone.

  • RiverFred

    But how can you hate such nice people as these Muslims? They only want to destroy our democracy, deprive us of our liberties, impose Sharia Law, enslave our women,
    quash religious freedom, rape and sexually mutilate our young daughters, kill
    the Jews/Christians, and destroy the best in human rights…I’m sure if we just
    learn to be more patient with Muslims everything will work out just fine.

    Qur’an :12
    – “I shall cast terror into the hearts of the infidels. Strike off their heads,
    strike off the very tips of their fingers.” As quoted by Mohammed, “the perfect
    man.”

    • Thumbs up!

      I suppose you’re right. They’re bound to see things our way and abandon their 1400 years of religious jihad, antisemitism, and cultural indoctrination. I’m sure one day all us islamophobes will look back on this and laugh, laugh, laugh…IF WE STILL HAVE OUR HEADS!

      • paul

        When they have 10% of the population it will look like the book of Revelation. If you don’t take the sign of islam it will on the street executions 7,000 Syrians coming every year to get it done. Call your senator and congressmen to get this UN travesty stopped.

    • paul

      But we elected a president who follows this religion of pieces….. To prove we are not racist islamophobes

  • roccolore

    Hamas-CAIR approves of this since they still think Islam is the victim.

  • Metatrona

    Enact laws to make anti-Semitic actions A FELONY! ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!

  • Divineconnection7

    Hate crime!!!

  • SJS

    Rabbi, it’s called stand your ground. Use it.

  • Chief

    If someone walks up to you and screams Allah Snackbar and then screams I’m going to cut your head of, just shoot the bastard.

  • thinkingforyourself

    converted in prison? why doesn’t that surprise me.

  • John P

    It is time to deal with t5hese warped minds and evil bodies! If someone likes Moslem culture send them to a Moslem country and not allow them to return!

  • Mr Lawrence

    Local police have always been ready and willing to do whatever is needed when called to a synagogue or other Jewish building after a antisemitic incident.
    I myself is prepared to offer my security experience to a congregation that needs protection. Call me what you want but Nazis or Islamists as described above should think twice if they show up where I and my friends are waiting.

  • Peter

    Florida CCW is very easy to get. You don’t even need to be a Florida resident. There are several of us who carry in our synagogue (in CA). Let’s not be sheep to the slaughter.

  • drdias

    Islam the Male dominated ideology of death and enslavement can only delivers peace and tolerance to those it can enslave, traumatize, tyrannize, and murder in cold blood!

    There is no logical, moral, ethical, academic, social, or even any irrational reasoning to compare the Male Dominated tyrannical dictatorial Ideology of Islam to any known Religious, Culture or Ethnic group.

  • ReaganAK47

    Can someone help ask the Muslims why they are so Jewishophobia?

  • Rob Porter

    The Jewish Defence League in Toronto has set a good precedent. Operating under the motto ‘Never again’ its member have no intention of ignoring and will respond to Muslim threats and acts of violence. Jewish communities all over North America should take a leaf from this JDL. Among other things it teachers how to physically defend yourself and in the process inflict serious damage.

    Placidly waiting and hoping to avoid a confrontation is a waste of time and downright demoralizing, rather prepare yourself to take lethal action against Muslim vermin..

  • paul

    Jews supporting obola and islam are getting a road built to Auschwitz. They better vote with their head instead of their liberal ideas. The Jewish leaders need to start educating their people
