The brother of 44-year-old Malik Faisal Akram, the British national who was shot dead after taking four people hostage at a Texas synagogue, says his brother suffered from “mental health issues.”
In a statement shortly after learning news of his brother’s death at the hands of the FBI’s elite Hostage Rescue Team, Gulbar Akram expressed deep sorrow over the events that transpired at Beth Israel synagogue on Saturday.

“It is with great sadness I will confirm my brother Faisal passed away in Texas, USA, this morning,” said Gulbar. “We are absolutely devastated as a family. We can’t say much now as there is an ongoing FBI investigation.”
Malik allegedly took hostages to secure the release of convicted Pakistani terrorist Aafia Siddiqu, a.k.a. Lady al-Qaeda. Gulbar emphasized that his family does not in any way condone violence and expressed sympathy for the victims.
“We would like to say that we as a family do not condone any of his actions and would like to sincerely apologize wholeheartedly to all the victims involved in the unfortunate incident,” he said.
Gulbar added that his brother “was suffering from mental health issues” and did not believe he would have harmed the hostages, admitting that there was nothing his family could say or do to make him surrender.
“Sitting in the incident room all last night at Greenbank until the early hours liaising with Faisal, the negotiators, FBI, etc,” he continued. “And although my brother was suffering from mental health issues, we were confident that he would not harm the hostages.
“There was nothing we could have said to him or done that would have convinced him to surrender,” he added.
The FBI has yet to label the attack antisemitic, arguing that Malik was not directly targeting the Jewish community when he demanded the release of Lady al-Qaeda.
I believe that the readers should see this article from 7 years ago. Make sure that you read the Commandments of Antichrist. If you have not read about the Georgia Guidestones, then I do believe that what is happening presently in our world will come into sharper focus for you.
“The Georgia Guidestones is a granite monument erected in 1980 in Elbert County, Georgia, in the United States. A set of ten guidelines is inscribed on the structure in eight modern languages, and a shorter message is inscribed at the top of the structure in four ancient language scripts: Babylonian, Classical Greek, Sanskrit, and Egyptian hieroglyphs.
Here are the 10 guidelines (Commandments) etched in the stones:
Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature.
Guide reproduction wisely — improving fitness and diversity.
Unite humanity with a living new language.
Rule passion — faith — tradition — and all things with tempered reason.
Protect people and nations with fair laws and just courts.
Let all nations rule internally resolving external disputes in a world court.
Avoid petty laws and useless officials.
Balance personal rights with social duties.
Prize truth — beauty — love — seeking harmony with the infinite.
Be not a cancer on the earth — Leave room for nature — Leave room for nature
The first one should alarm the normal person. We have over 7 billion people on the earth right now. To be in “Perpetual balance with nature” 9 out of 10 people would have to be eliminated! *****(from the writer: Do not forget that 7 years later, there are closer to 8 billion people on planet earth)
****If you care to do the math for the reduction of the population to be under 500,000,000, then you should be alarmed to see that this would involved mass murdering over 95% of the population!
The second one no doubt has to do with sterilization and abortion
The third is extremely interesting- Unite humanity with a living new language. Remember when God stopped the construction of the Tower of Babel by confusing the languages?
The fourth is a big problem for Christians – tempering our faith – very telling.
The sixth speaks of a World court. Brings to mind a One World Government.
The ninth sounds very Wiccan and New Age.
The tenth reinforces the first – speaking of people as of little worth, a cancer upon the earth.
Mother Earth is in the end— most important.
So, the new 10 commandments are all for the good of the earth. They are worshiping the creation and ignoring the Creator. We can look at the Bible and clearly see that everything Satan did was contrary to God’s Word. He started in the Garden of Eden, speaking lies to Eve so that she would doubt that which God had spoken to her.
But we need to go back to the beginning to truly understand Satan’s mission here on earth. When he was still Lucifer, the most beautiful of all of God’s created angels, he became jealous of God and sought to sit on God’s throne instead of Him.
God knew the intent of Lucifer’s heart, and because of his arrogance and pride, he was cast out of heaven, along with 1/3 of the angels who chose to follow him.
“How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High. Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.” Isaiah 14:12-15 (KJV)
“And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.” Revelation 12:7-9 (KJV)
THE GARDEN OF EDEN
“Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil. And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.” Genesis 3:1-6 (KJV)
Clever and crafty is the evil one. I believe that the New Age movement is actually not “new” at all. I think that it was born the moment that Satan said to Eve that God knew if she and Adam ate from the forbidden tree, that they would be as gods. He appealed to the rebellious and prideful side of Eve. She desired wisdom. She desired to be a god. She and Adam had been created by God with free will to choose good or evil. God had placed Adam and Eve in the most perfect setting. A beautiful garden, where they could walk and talk with Him. They had everything they would ever need. All they had to do was to obey Him.
Satan has been present throughout human history. If people are not following God, then they are following the devil. Some would say that is not true. They would say that a person has the right to choose to go their own way. Yes, God gave them that right. But since God created all people, does He not have the right to ask for their devotion and obedience?
“But now, O Lord, thou art our father; we are the clay, and thou our potter; and we all are the work of thy hand.” (Isaiah 64:8)
THE TEN COMMANDMENTS OF GOD
“And God spake all these words, saying, I am the Lord thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.
Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.
Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain; for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.
Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work: But the seventh day is the sabbath of the Lord thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the Lord blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.
Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.
Thou shalt not kill.
Thou shalt not commit adultery.
Thou shalt not steal.
Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.
Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour’s.”Exodus 20:1-17 (KJV)
It seems that from the beginning of time, people wanted to worship that which they could see. Not only that, but they wished to fashion these graven images with their own hands. When Moses was on Mount Sinai, receiving the law of God, written with His own finger, the people were busily making a golden calf.
They stood back and admired the work of their own hands, and then they worshiped it. This angered Moses to the point of smashing the tablets on which God had written His law.
God in His mercy, wrote the Commandments again for Moses to take to the people.Moses spent 40 days and 40 nights in the presence of the Lord. When he descended the mountain, the people could not look upon the face of Moses, because the brightness of the Glory of God shone from his face. He actually had to place a veil over his face when he was with the people, which he removed when he went back into the presence of God.
I think that it was merciful of God to allow the Shekinah Glory to shine from Moses for the people to see. The Lord God knew that these people whom He loved were weak, and needed a sign. How much greater was the Shekinah glory of God on Moses’ face, than the glimmer of the golden calf which they had made with their own hands?
God also knew that people would not be able to keep His whole law. He gave us His law to show His standards — His holiness, His righteousness, His perfection. In His incredible love and mercy towards us, He sent His only Son, Jesus, to pay the penalty for our sins, and in turn He gave those who believed, the righteousness of Jesus, so that we might be reconciled to Himself.
“There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death. For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh: That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.” Romans 8: 1-4 (KJV)
NEW AGE FOLLOWERS
Remember when Satan spoke to Eve about being as gods? Those powerfully tempting words brought about the fall of Adam and Eve, and so the rest of us. Satan and his demons love to whisper lofty words into the ears of unsuspecting people.
Those whom God has redeemed learn to discern when the devil is speaking lies to us. Sometimes, when we are weak, we stumble and fall, before we realize that our enemy has tripped us up. Thankfully, the Word says:
“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” 1 John 1:9 (KJV)
But those who have not been redeemed are following after the devil. Some just call it “doing their own thing.” But some consciously follow evil and do it unapologetically.
I wrote an article about the United Nations and the Lucis Trust not long ago. This satanic organization was birthed by a woman named Alice Bailey, a known occultist and spiritist. Through her work, the New Age philosophies permeated the United Nations, and to this day is their “religion.”
Bailey wrote extensively about waiting for Lord Maitreya, whom anyone associated with the New Age movement knows is their messiah. He is known to Christians throughout the world as Antichrist.
WICCA, WITCHCRAFT, OCCULTISM AND NEO-PAGANISM
Wicca: From the Anglo-Saxon word wicce. It means to bend or shape nature to your service.
Witchcraft: The practice of magic or sorcery by anyone outside the religious mainstream of a society. This term is used in different ways in different times and places.
Occultism: Belief in practices such as astrology, alchemy, divination and magic that are based on “hidden knowledge” about the universe and its mysterious forces. Occultists try to tap into this unseen knowledge to bring about whatever effects they desire.
Neo-Paganism: The recent revival of ancient polytheistic European and Middle-Eastern religions. Neo-paganism is a loosely defined system of worshiping nature and the gods of nature.
Did you notice that “nature” is mentioned a lot? That’s because the people who participate in these practices, worship the earth — actually they call earth “Mother earth.”
If you asked these people about Satan, most all of them would tell you that they don’t believe in him. These sects of occultism are different from Satanists. Their “god” is nature and our planet.
Now, although they do not speak of Satan, you will find many who talk about Lucifer. Alice Bailey and other occultists in the U.N. believe that Lucifer is to be exalted and revered. To them, he is a source of enlightenment and the first “rebel” which they see as righteous, and a wonderful role model.
GLOBAL WARMING AND CARING FOR MOTHER EARTH
Are you beginning to see from where the millions of ‘Save the earth’ people emerge? They are doing what anyone who worships the earth would do, right? They have absolutely no time for Christians, who speak of sin, repentance and trusting in Jesus Christ for forgiveness of sins.
But you WILL hear them speak of THE Christ. Please know that this is NOT our Savior Jesus Christ of whom they speak. There are many terms for the one for whom they wait. Lord Maitreya is one name. Even though these people say that do not believe in Satan, they would be shocked to know that they all were fooled by him, and they ARE following him.
“Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.”Romans 1:21-23 (KJV)
The Mother Earth worshipers believe that the earth and the animals are worth much more than people. As a matter of fact, most of them are on board with population control. ANYTHING to help Mother Earth to be all she can be! I joke, but it’s very sad.
It’s especially sad when you think that all of these people who have worshiped God’s creation instead of Him, the Creator, will be in hell when they die, if they don’t repent of their beliefs.
We are definitely in the last of the last days. We are waiting for the Blessed Hope — the Lord Jesus catching those of us who love Him, away from this wicked earth, and He will take us to heaven to be with Him forever.
Those who are worshiping the earth, believe that a messiah is coming. I have very bad news for them. He is no messiah and he is EVIL incarnate. If they didn’t believe in Satan before, they will meet him face to face in Antichrist. Such a terrifying thought, and they have absolutely no clue that this is what will happen.
Keep this article in mind when you watch Pope Francis give his global warming speech at the UN in September. I believe that the Lord will open the eyes of many people that day – especially when he speaks of the earth as “Mother Earth.”
Pastor Aaron Musser of St. Luke’s Lutheran Church of Logan Square in Chicago recently dressed in full drag for the Sunday service, wearing a long white dress emblazoned with a golden cross on its chest, a long blonde wig, and full makeup in order to lead the children’s message.
The pastor began the message by calling the children up to the front to sit with him and asked if they’d ever seen a drag queen before.
The kids responded in the negative.
“I have an awesome story to share with you today,” Musser said. “I am also a boy most of the time when I’m here, but today, I’m a girl.”
His message to the children was clearly not your typical children’s Bible story, but an agenda to indoctrinate vulnerable children with his Queer Theology.
Musser’s actions while shocking to some are part of a long established trend of LGBT activists that have infiltrated the church, including it’s leadership.
At the forefront of this push has been the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) which has taken more steps to promote Queer & Progressive Theology than possibly any other denomination.
In September of last year it appointed it’s first openly transgender bishop, The Rev. Megan Rohrer to lead one of the church’s synods, which means she will have direct leadership over 200 congregations.
With her appointment it was announced that the bishop should be addressed with the pronouns “they/their”.
Rohr was the first transgender person to be ordained by the ELCA in 2006 and now makes “history”, the pro-LGBT group Extraordinary Lutheran Ministries said. “We anticipate the day when all queer ministry leaders will be called to ministry settings without hindrance or barrier and will be affirmed in their God-given calls”.
According to this group, there are already over 400 queer ministers in the ELCA at this point.
The ELCA is known for its strong theological shift in the last 15 years towards an “inclusive” theology, except when it comes to Israel.
Last year the Danish Bible Society, which is also run by the Evangelical Lutheran Church, came under heavy fire for the Danish “translation” of the Bible that virtually wipes out “Israel” from the New Testament.
In the Greek New Testament, the word “Israel” occurs more than 60 times. However, it is found only once in the new Danish version called Bibelen 2020. That’s right, just once. And that one occurrence is a direct quote from an Old Testament verse. Otherwise, “Israel” is gone.
The reason for this, the society argues, is that Christian readers must not connect “Israel” in the New Testament with the nation of Israel today. The ELCA has long promoted the idea of “replacement theology”, also called supersessionism, which essentially teaches that the church has replaced Israel in God’s plan. Adherents of replacement theology believe the Jews are no longer God’s chosen people, and God does not have specific future plans for the nation of Israel.
The presiding “bishop” of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America, The Rev. Elizabeth Eaton, has also expressed her belief that although Hell may exist, it is entirely empty because “God doesn’t give up on those who reject Him.”
Two years ago, over 30,000 ELCA teenagers attended the ELCA’s national youth gathering. Popular ELCA pastor Nadia Bolz-Webber (who loves to swear during her sermons and tells her congregants that there is nothing wrong with porn) led the students to say after her “I renounce the lie that queerness is anything other than beauty”.
At the youth gathering an 11-year-old boy who thinks he is a girl was put on stage to promote transgenderism.
This past summer the ELCA in convention passed an interfaith resolution stating that we do not know what God thinks of non-Christian religions. A delegate got to the microphone to offer an amendment, saying that we do know because John 14:6 says that Jesus is the only way of salvation. His amendment was voted down by 97 percent.
The church also raised some red flags with its promotion of praying by addressing God as “Mother” instead of Father on its official Facebook page as well as via Twitter:
“Mother God, you have fed us with the nourishment of your spiritual food. Raise us up into salvation and rid us of our bitterness, so that we may share the sweetness of your holy word with all the world,” the ELCA tweeted as part of their #Bread4theday series of Twitter posts.
The tweet has gotten a fair amount of negative attention. Hans Fiene, a conservative pastor who oversees the popular Lutheran Satire YouTube channel, responded with a simple message to people who still value Biblical literacy:
“Leave the ELCA,” he succinctly replied when retweeting the ELCA post. Thankfully many have headed his call. The ELCA had over five million members when it was first launched in 1988. It currently has 3.3 million members and its decline has been accelerating as it continues to adopt many unbiblical practices.
The scriptures warn against associating with such people as fellow believers; “having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away….ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth” 2 Timothy 3:5-7
Sadly, the ELCA are not alone in their Queer Agenda push and many other churches are following suit.
Last month the Anglican Church in Canada introduced a new liturgy full in transgender ideology which supports and outlines the blessing and affirmation of gender transitions. The liturgy text endorses people physically changing their genders and even says it honors God.
“Taking steps physically or spiritually to manifest our gender identity more fully is to participate in God’s commandment to tend and love all that God has made,” a deacon is supposed to say.
The presider also asks for God’s blessing for “the gender transition process.” There is even a special prayer for the surgery part of transitioning.
Not to be outdone Anglicans in the UK have been promoting their alternative for Baptism for those who have transitioned.
The “Renaming Ceremony” seizes on the theme of “rebirth” and the tradition of conferring a name in Christian Initiation. “Change of name” is treated as tantamount to change of sex. The idea being that there are “echoes in the Bible” of such a practice, as when Abram became Abraham, Sarai Sarah, Jacob Israel, and Saul Paul. None of them apparently noticed that Abram did not become Sarah nor Jacob Rachel.
In the “Renaming Ceremony,” the name-change is justified because it “is a recognition of a pre-existing truth that has been obscured.” Transgender ideology puts huge weight upon the culture, but, in this instance, the “pre-existing truth” is not “male and female God created them” but some hidden, self-discovered reality which even God has been apparently complicit in obscuring.
Clothes are also important to the Renaming Ceremony. The rubric provides that candidates are to be dressed in gender neutral clothing but bearing symbols of their birth gender. Symbols of their birth gender are then put under a cloth and a kind of a baptismal candle is then extinguished. Symbols of their newly assumed “gender” (wherever it happens to be among the fifty shades) will then be taken up and a new candle lit.
In a true baptismal rite, a candle is lit as a symbol of “the light of Christ.” The lighting and extinguishing of candles in the “Renaming” ceremony (associated with some kind of putting on and taking off of “genders”) is more symbolic than they realize.
Those choosing to adopt such ideologies have traded the light of Christ for a false gospel and a false light that will eventually lead only to darkness. SOURCE
What does Jesus think about causing children to sin??
“But whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to sin, it would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were drowned in the depth of the sea” (Matthew 18:6).

Soon after the FBI freed four hostages held by a gunman for 11 hours at Congregation Beth Israel in Colleyville, Texas on Saturday, Special Agent in Charge of the Dallas Field Office Matthew Desarno made a truly baffling statement.
“We do believe from our engagement with this subject that he was singularly focused on one issue and it was not specifically related to the Jewish community, but we are continuing to work to find the motive,” Desarno said.
*****Pardon me, but no statement ever made by a “Special Agent” has ever been this asinine.
The idea that any attack on a synagogue is “not specifically related to the Jewish community” is absurd enough.
******YES – ASININE
Even with the broadest definition of who is considered Jewish, Jews make up only 2.4% of all American adults and only 0.6% of the population of Texas. It beggars belief, in most cases and in this one in particular, that someone outside the densest Jewish populations in America would have randomly stumbled upon a synagogue while looking for people to hold hostage.
Add to that the fact that the gunman entered Congregation Beth Israel on a Saturday morning when Shabbat services are held. The timing was clearly intentional.

But the specifics of this crime also show a deep current of antisemitism running through the “one issue” on which the hostage-taker was “singularly focused.
”Perhaps at first glance, that issue, the release of Aafia Siddiqui, currently serving an 86-year prison sentence for attempting to murder American troops and FBI agents, does not seem to be “specifically related to the Jewish community.” But Siddiqui was a raving antisemite, and that information is readily available.
The gunman said that he and Siddiqui were “sisters” – though apparently in ideology and not in the literal sense – and that they would meet in “Jannah,” meaning paradise after he dies.
Siddiqui, nicknamed “Lady Al-Qaeda,” was born in Pakistan and traveled to the US on a student visa in 1990. She got her PhD in neuroscience from Brandeis University, founded by the Jewish community in 1948 and named after the first Jewish Justice in the US Supreme Court.
After Siddiqui was arrested in Afghanistan for her part in plotting al-Qaeda terrorist attacks in the US, UK and Pakistan, shooting at US Army troops as they detained her, she said that the case against her was a Jewish conspiracy.
Siddiqui dismissed her legal defense team because she said the lawyers were Jewish, and she demanded that jurors in the trial take DNA tests to make sure they were not Israeli or Zionists, in order “to be fair.”
She also wrote a letter to then-president Barack Obama telling him that Jews “have always back-stabbed everyone who has taken pity on them and made the ‘fatal’ error of giving them shelter.”
“It is this cruel, ungrateful back-stabbing of the Jews that has caused them to be mercilessly expelled from wherever they gain strength. This is why ‘holocausts’ keep happening to them repeatedly! If they would only learn to be grateful and change their behavior!!” Siddiqui wrote.
After her conviction, Siddiqui said: “This is a verdict coming from Israel and not from America. That’s where the anger belongs.”
The likelihood of someone being so passionate about releasing Siddiqui that he would hold people hostage at gunpoint and not know of her widely-reported and Wikipedia-listed views about Jews is slim.
One of the organizations that has been advocating Siddiqui’s release in recent weeks is the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). In November, CAIR’s Texas chapter and MPower Change, a Muslim activist group, hosted an online event titled “Injustice: Dr. Aafia and the 20-year legacy of America’s wars.”
In addition, CAIR San Francisco Executive Director Zahra Billoo gave a speech in November, in which she told attendees to “know your enemies.”
Speaking at a convention for American Muslims for Palestine (AMP), Billoo said: “When we talk about Islamophobia, we often think of the vehement fascists… but I also want us to pay attention to the polite Zionists, the ones that say ‘let’s just break bread together.’…We need to pay attention to the Anti-Defamation League, we need to pay attention to the Jewish Federation, we need to pay attention to the Zionist synagogues, we need to pay attention to the Hillel chapters on our campuses.”
It must be said that CAIR National Deputy Director Ed Ahmed Mitchell condemned the hostage-taking in Colleyville.
******** YES…….CAIR always has one Jew Hater from their organization designated as the “We condemn this act” voice of reason. blah blah blah
“This latest antisemitic attack at a house of worship is an unacceptable act of evil,” Mitchell said. “We stand in solidarity with the Jewish community… No cause can justify or excuse this crime. We are in contact with local community leaders to learn more and provide any assistance that we can.”
We don’t know much about the hostage-taker, since the FBI is not releasing information. But we know that he targeted a synagogue in order to free a woman who did not hide her hatred of Jews. And we know that a leading figure in the same organization that advocated Siddiqui’s cause put synagogues and other major Jewish organizations on a list of “enemies” who spark Islamophobia.
These seem like directions of inquiry that the FBI ought to be taking seriously.
What more must it take for a crime to be viewed as “specifically related to the Jewish community?” What more needs to happen for antisemitic hate crimes to be viewed as such? Source
Being a Jew, and growing up with vile Jew hatred all around me, the subject of this jpost article does not shock this writer.
However, this clearly shows the rampant anti Semitism in America. It makes me wonder if the “internment” camps for the unvaxxed might have special sections for the “Juden” even if they are vaxxed. I mean a Jew is a Jew, right?
The powers that be won’t let a good crisis go to waste.
