I am familiar with some (not all) of these. I Googled a few to refresh my memory. How many of these killed or martyred themselves shouting "God is great"? How many killed in the name of religion; justifying their murders on Biblical texts, teachings; by the life of the founder of their respective religion?

Dovetailing nicely with this piece, one scholar on Islam wrote the following this evening:

In wake of Ottawa shootings, Police Chiefs send letters to Muslim leaders inviting Muslims to contact them if they fear “backlash”

The politically correct Ottawa Police Chief seems to have imbibed the lesson well: after every jihad attack, Muslims are the victims, and need special reassurances. Of course, there should be no “backlash” against any innocent people and almost certainly won’t be, but this endless pandering is grotesque. Who is reassuring non-Muslims about keeping them safe from jihad attacks? Who is calling upon Muslim leaders in Canada or anywhere else to back up their condemnations of jihad terror with real action against it, including programs to teach young Muslims to reject that understanding of Islam?

“It turns out that even when a British Muslim decapitates a British Christian, there will always be someone to blame the Jew,” Bennett said.

You've got to love Naftali Bennett.

Palestinians obviously cannot, nor will they reconcile themselves to a Jewish state. They should be encouraged to emigrate to any number of Muslim-Arab states where they will feel more welcome and at home.

President Barack Obama is an unmitigated disaster. It is disappointing to me that American Jews voted for and continue to support this man.

'The idea that we saw a black president in our lifetime is wonderful,” said New York City’s former mayor, Ed Koch. “It conveyed to us that this country has come such a long way. But I never fully accepted that Obama didn’t hear his minister [Jeremiah Wright] make those awful anti-Semitic statements over twenty years. I wanted to believe him. I willed myself to believe him.... What he has done is break that trust. Like Humpty Dumpty, once you break it, you can’t put it together again.”

Why isn't The Jewish Daily Forward covering this Ebola thing. There must be a Jewish angle from a Torah perspective about contagious diseases and what to do about them, travel restrictions from infected areas, etc.

No, my point isn't that the U.S. should return these territories capture by a war of aggression against Mexico to Mexico. Neither should Israel give territories re-acquired by means of wars of self-defense to the Palestinians.
