Miami was the site of a violent, pro-Hamas, pro-terror demo last week tied to the Hamas-tied CAIR. This is the poison fruit of CAIR’s incitement to hate and violence. Signs like this were displayed at the demo. Journalists were attacked shouting “We are all Hamas,” “We are all jihad.”
“I’m gonna kill you mother fucker, you and all the Israelis!” “You want a push, I’ll show you a push!” He’s a Zionist, this guy is not one of us, he’s a Zionist!” (code for Jew) On Sunday July 20, 2014, these violent and hateful words were combined with physical assaults against an innocent Jewish reporter in Miami Florida. On this beautiful sunny Florida day the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) crossed a cultural and maybe legal red line by sponsoring a HAMAS demonstration where this man, a Jewish reporter working undercover was identified and attacked by an angry crowd of HAMAS jihadists.
During the confrontation one of the HAMAS pulled out an improvised weapon and moved in to stab the Jewish reporter before someone stopped him while another CAIR jihadist made a clear, direct and profound threat to kill the reporter.
Clad in the war garb of the jihad, the keffiyeh, and chanting the Islamic death dirge, “Khaybar, Khaybar, ya yahud, jaish Muhammad sa yaoud.” The threat of Khaybar is the threat of extermination, harkening back to Muhammad’s annihilation of an entire tribe of Jews, the Qurayzah.
“Synagogue in North Miami Beach vandalized,” WSVN, July 27, 2014
NORTH MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (WSVN) — Authorities are searching for the vandals who spray painted anti-Semitic messages on a South Florida synagogue.
Residents who voluntarily patrol the area discovered swastikas and the word, “Hamas” spray painted in red on columns on the Congregation Torah V’Emunah at 1000 NE 175th St, early Monday morning.
“I saw this and then I stopped and I said, ‘Wait a minute. What am I seeing here?’ and then I backed up again and I looked again and I immediately sent a text to the two supervisors,” said resident and neighborhood watchman Yona Lunger.
Residents are now trying to figure out who would want to desecrate their place of worship. “Absolute hate and why are you doing this, what have we done to you? We want to live at peace over here, we’re not fighting with you, we want to get along,” said Lunger. “We don’t go to any mosques, we don’t go spraying, anything like that. All we want to do is get along.”
Some residents are even concerned about their safety.
“I mean honestly it makes you question if it’s safe to walk around, wearing your yamaka, like how safe you really are in America,” said neighbor Josh Rosenberg.
Pictures of the defaced columns were posted on Facebook and many people around the world are reacting. “It’s like disgusting,” said Yossi Rosenberg.
The vandalism has since been removed.
This incident comes a day after a Miami Beach family’s vehicles were egged and defaced with the words, “Jew” and “Hamas” smeared on the windshields.
These hate crimes are happening amid turmoil in Israel between Israelis and Palestinians. However, local residents are trying to figure out why they are being targeted. “Why would they do it here? If it’s all the way in Israel, why would they come here and do it,” said a young boy.
If you have any information on these crimes, call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS. Remember, you can always remain anonymous, and you may be eligible for a reward.
UPDATE: CBS local has more:
MIAMI (CBSMiami) – For the second time in as many days, messages of hate targeted members of South Florida’s Jewish community.
Early Monday morning, spray painted swastikas and the word “Hamas” were discovered on the pillars in front of the Congregation Torah Ve’emunah, at 1000 NE 175th Street, in northeast Miami-Dade.
“It was the worst thing that one wants to see on his own place of worship,” said a member of the temple.
A member of the community watch discovered the vandalism around 1 a.m.
“As I was rolling by I noticed some coloring on the wall,” said Yona Lunger. “I back up again, looked again and I said ‘wow, it’s a swastika’. It’s very disturbing, very disturbing.”
On Saturday, a family who lives along Meridian Avenue in a predominantly Jewish neighborhood of Miami Beach found their cars had been vandalized as they left to attend a service at their synagogue.
“They wrote “Hamas” on the back of the car window and they wrote “Jew,’” said Joshua, who didn’t want us to publish his last name.
The two vehicles were covered with eggs and smeared with cream cheese, but it’s the meaning behind the words that left many in the predominantly Jewish community concerned.
“Since it was a Jewish holiday people were going back and forth and it was the talk of the neighborhood and they were all scared,” added Joshua. “That we have a hate crime in our own Jewish neighborhood.”
“Everyone was shocked,” said Rachel, whose car was also targeted. “No one knew what was going on, we’re like this is America, this is Miami. Why would we be targeted here? We’re supposed to be safe, free from anti-semitism.
With the escalating aggression between Israel and Hamas in the Middle East, some are wondering if the right abroad has now made it to their own home turf.
“It’s terrible and it really shows that the Islamic terrorists have taken this fight to the United States,” said Mark Goldstein.
“I think what has happened here is terrible and it should never happen,” said Pauletta Hayle. “if it happened over there it should stay over there. They shouldn’t bring it here.”
Police are investigating the actions as a potential hate crime and many in the neighborhood are now planning to install surveillance cameras.
