Muslim group puts fifteen prominent Danish Jews on hit list
The Jerusalem Post (www.jpost.com) reports that a Muslim group has put 15 prominent Danish Jews on a hit list.
The people on the list reportedly include Deputy Foreign Minister Michael Melchior's father, Binyamin, a rabbi in the community, and the father of Ron Pundak, one of the architects of the Oslo Accords. [...]
Every time I post an article on such anti-Semitic garbage I get emails that tell me that "Arabs are also Semitics" or "This is not anti-Semitism since the violence is politically motivated". Before you send such a message, here's the definition of anti-Semitism from Dictionary.com:
anˇti-Semˇiˇtism (nt-sm-tzm, nt-) n. 1. Hostility toward or prejudice against Jews or Judaism. 2. Discrimination against Jews.
This group targets a group of people simply because they are Jews - they are anti-Semitic Muslims stuck in the Middle Ages.
I copy the full article below.
Report- 15 Danish Jews on Muslim group's hit list
Fifteen prominent Danish Jews have been put on a hit list by an extreme Muslim group in the country, a Danish newspaper revealed last week.
The people on the list reportedly include Deputy Foreign Minister Michael Melchior's father, Binyamin, a rabbi in the community, and the father of Ron Pundak, one of the architects of the Oslo Accords.
The Simon Wiesenthal Center has called on Danish Prime Minister Anders Rassmussen to personally intervene in the case.
The Muslim group believed to be behind the list is Hizb Ut Tahrir, whose aim is to create worldwide Islamic rule.
Deputy Foreign Minister Michael Melchior told The Jerusalem Post Monday night that he could not confirm or deny that his father is on the list. However, he said that the Danish authorities are "taking the matter seriously" and have contacted the people on the list.
Melchior said the newspaper, Jyllands-Posten, obtained the list through Muslim connections, but was pressured not to publish it.
He also said that the attorney-general of Denmark is considering outlawing the Muslim group that is reportedly behind the plot. According to Melchior, the group has been active for the past few years, and the incidence of extreme Muslim activities is on the rise since the outbreak of violence between Israel and the Palestinians two years ago.
Binyamin Melchior was the chief rabbi of Denmark and is still a prominent Jewish figure in the country. Pundak lives in Israel and in Denmark and was the editor of a leading Danish newspaper.
