ISIS Active Plot to Attack Jewish Kindergartens, Schools, Youth Centers

ByPamela Geller on March 28, 2016

Islamic Jew-hatred – it’s in the Quran.

Attack plots have surfaced to slaughter Jewish children, this just after yesterday’s slaughter of Christian children on Easter.

Islam. It’s not like other religions.

Intelligence source cited by Sky News says concrete threat to Istanbul synagogue and community center, after Turkey and Israel both warn of increased danger for Jews and Israelis
By Times of Israel staff March 28, 2016:

Islamic State terrorists are planning an imminent attack on Jewish kindergartens, schools and youth centers in Turkey, according to a report by Britain-based Sky News Monday.

The report came hours after Jerusalem issued an alert for all Israeli citizens to leave Turkey as soon as possible, citing an Islamic State threat, and nine days after three Israelis were killed in a bombing in Istanbul.

According to Sky News, citing an “intelligence source,” terrorists are plotting to attack a synagogue which also doubles as a school and community center in the Beyoglu neighborhood of Istanbul.

The source said the threat was imminent and could happen at any moment.

“This is a more than credible threat. This is an active plot,” the source said. “We don’t know when it’s scheduled for. It could be in the next 24 hours or next few days.”

The report was likely referring to the Neve Shalom synagogue, Istanbul’s largest, serving many of the country’s estimated 17,000 Jews.

The synagogue has been the site of two previous deadly attacks: a 1986 shooting and a 2003 bombing.

The source said the intelligence was related to the capture of a group of Islamic State operatives, including a suicide bomber, in Gaziantep, in southern Turkey, last week, and added that security was being beefed up along with increased anti-terror measures.

On Saturday, Turkish police warned of possible Islamic State attacks against Christians and Jews over the weekend.

The police issued a nationwide alert warning of possible attacks targeting churches during Easter on Sunday, as well as synagogues, the state-run Anatolia news agency reported.

Israeli officials followed up that warning Monday by raising the terror risk in Turkey from level 3 (basic concrete threat) to level 2 (high concrete threat).

The Prime Minister’s Office cited a March 19 attack in central Istanbul in which three Israelis were killed and several others wounded.

That attack, the PMO said in a statement, underscored the threat emanating from Islamic State cells that seek to attack tourism sites and proved that IS has “high capabilities of carrying out further attacks.”

“Terrorist infrastructures in Turkey continue to advance additional attacks against tourist targets – including Israeli tourists – throughout the country,” the statement added.

Israelis in Turkey should “leave as soon as possible,” it said.

Despite chilly ties between Jerusalem and Ankara, Turkey remains a popular tourist destination for Israelis.

IS has been blamed for four of six bombings that have rocked Turkey in the past eight months, including a double suicide attack at a peace rally in the capital, Ankara, in October that left 103 people dead.

A radical offshoot of the rebel Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) claimed the other two attacks.

The police have warned that IS group members may have scouted out places of worship as well as consulates and embassies, saying that churches and synagogues especially in Ankara, as well as foundations belonging to non-Muslims, should be on their guard.

    It is time for counter attacks on mosques, every were at anytime, if terrorism is the only thing islam understands, then terrorism is what they shall be given.

    • Ari Chen

      Good opportunity for this counter strike is coming soon.. The beasts will be lame and tamer during their fake fasting month in June. Ramadan will start on Monday, the 6th of June and will continue for 30 days until Tuesday, the 5th of July.

      • Mahou Shoujo

        Good, spring training has begun with terrorists throwing out the first grenade.

        • IslamophobicCanadianAthiest

          And it was caught and a very nice long pass was returned and caught by mihambone den Dover for 2 points and 12 teammates.

          Nice game was enjoyed by all except the receiving team who failed RPG catching badly and lost 12 team members during the skirmish for the RPG..

          • Mahou Shoujo

            They’re all dead, but listen to the applause, the fans love it.

      • RevnantDream

        Ramaboom is upon us again

      • Dr. Doomsday

        I’m sure Obama will have a good time of it again, at the Bathhouse…

    • Libertybells

      In an ideal world we would take those measures, I do indeed 100% support that, but in the real world, we so much as look at a mosque the wrong way, its a automatic hate crime, Throw a package of bacon at one its “right wing terrorism” but yeah, the only way to ever have a fighting chance is to take a page or two out of their playbook.

      • Mahou Shoujo

        What is required is a few leaders who are willing to stand up for what is right, not grovel for political correctness and multiculturalism.

        • Libertybells

          Then lets keep our fingers crossed for November.

          • Mahou Shoujo

            Cross the threshold of the voting station and vote, that will do much more good.

  • The origional roger

    I’m sure this threat against the Jewish schools is weighing heavily on Ergodans’ mind, up all night fretting and anxious.
    Netanyahu should be given permission to station Israeli guards in these places if the Turks can’t protect them, not that that will ever happen.

  • Libertybells

    Another attack on innocent children. Such brave fearless warriors. Surly they do their imaginary moon devil proud.

    • SRN99

      Muslims should question what is so great about Allah and why a pedophile prophet is needed to spread this religion

      • IslamophobicCanadianAthiest

        Then they would have to sell off their favorite goats,look under the face tent and see just how bad a double baggier they married/kidnapped. and they ill have to admit that they been had by a pedo dead for years before the kuram was even written and allowed muslime murderers free reign.

  • The Jewish families need to keep their kids home until further notice. Elementary school is stupid and pointless enough….it’s not worth your kid’s life

    • IslamophobicCanadianAthiest

      Why not keep any one even remotely connected with Big Al the virgin goat tester totally away and allow the kids their rights?

      Why should anyone have to NOT DO ANYTHING NORMAL to please these fanatic neanderthals?

      Time to institute the Tit for Tat Rule.

      When any islamic related person with the easily identifiable trait of worshiping a pedophile closet pig raper kills 1 Human ( any one breathing with even 1/3 their mental capacities,not connected to the pedo prince) police select 10 animals ,randomly, from the nearest mosque during morning ass exercises, and put to death.Starting with the M&M up front.(first).

  • Good America Jews need to learn the hard way

  • IslamophobicCanadianAthiest

    They are going to get their asses kicked. These kids are Americans and will not take this crap from a bunch of low mental cave men.

    Even a sharp pencil will send these pussies running and hiding.

    Unless they send in 300 troops the normal kindergarten

    And even then if they wake the kids during nap time they could get slaughtered before cookies.

  • Drew the Infidel

    Besides being a reflection of the cowardice of IS-holes one has to wonder why anyone would visit or live in Turkey in the first place with its leader Erdogan being a certifiable nut case. No wonder Israeli school teachers carry M-1 carbines on field trips.

  • Stephen Honig

    All these evil bastards who are planning this should suffer and incurable disease and die slowly with tremendous pain.

  • SmithWinston6478

    The result of inbreeding 1400 years is violent, merciless primitives in pajamas. We must not submit to the demented tyranny of their frenzied, barbaric, retrograde religion and inbred culture. The longer contemporary man cowers to socially-retarded, chromosome-damaged, stone-age misogynists and pedophiles to avoid violence, the more gruesome the ultimate conflagration will be.

    In the civilized world, we have evolved beyond the mentality of a brutal pedophile who called himself a prophet. Anyone who cannot understand or abide by freedom and tolerance should be banished to that barren corner of the Earth where their brutal inhumanity is isolated from normal mankind. Pity the children and females enslaved, mutilated, sometimes tortured, and often killed in that degenerate, macho, oppressive culture.

  • Metatrona

    Muslims are such disgusting pit-bulls.

  • meangirl

    Coming to Europe and US soon. The cowards love to murder children. Our leaders are even bigger cowards for facilitating it.

  • Dennis

    The slime that is Islamic fundamentalism must be eradicated from this planet. These terrorists, and that is what they are, must be extinguished totally. They breed only hate and murder from their belief system. They hate ALL non-Muslims, especially those of Jewish culture, as well as Christians and others. It is so obvious that the free world must eradicate these insane believers, whose only desire is to reach the unknown afterlife, and refuse to even consider that their conduct in reaching the so-called afterlife will either simply leave them dead and no longer enjoying what being alive brings to all of us who treasure life, or a death that is simply the end or involves a place in hell. Because that is how they believe, we, who love and bless LIFE, must terminate these believers forthwith, without mercy and as expeditiously as we can. This cancer that they represent must be ended, and it is time for the free world to take concerted action to do so NOW while we still can.

  • IzlamIsTyranny

    Synagogues are liked armed fortresses in Turkey — but that didn’t stop the muslums from bombing two of them in Istanbul Turkey in 2003.
    I can’t imagine being a non-muslim in Turkey, especially in Erodogan’s Turkey.

  • Mike Knox

    Ergodan is an Islamist Fundamentalist with a desire for a new Ottoman Empire. Turkey is poised to finish off the EU with millions of “visa free” travelers. I’m sure the authorities in Istanbul could care less if Jews are killed.

  • joe1429

    Trump is right… disband this useless nato, which the us foots most of the bill for . The soviet union is dead. And put together a coalition of countries to fight the real threat to us all… Terrorism
