More from the moderates in the West — funny how this “moderation” is spreading across Muslim communities in the West.
Once again we hear the infamous Khaybar chant. Always the same chant, always the same hate, always the same Islamic sanction of Jew-hatred. 1,400 years of “Khaybar Khaybar ya Yahud, Jaysh Muhammad sawfa ya’ud” (Khaybar, Khaybar, O Jews, the army of Muhammad will return)” = the army that exterminated entire tribe of Jews.
….when modern-day jihadists invoke Khaybar, they are doing much more than just recalling the glory days of Islam and its prophet. They are recalling an aggressive, surprise raid by Muhammad which resulted in the final eradication of the once considerable Jewish presence in Arabia. To the jihadists, Khaybar means the destruction of the Jews and the seizure of their property by the Muslims.
That Khaybar is repeatedly invoked today as a historical model for Hizballah should be a matter of grave concern for Western analysts and policymakers. It should play a significant role in discussions of whether and how a ceasefire should be pursued, and how much of a Hizballah presence can be tolerated indefinitely in Lebanon. But because most Western analysts are still dogmatically committed to the proposition that Islam has nothing, or nothing important, to do with the present global unrest, they recuse themselves from considering such data.

Hague Muslim protest features menacing calls about Jews, JTA, July 7, 2014
THE HAGUE, Netherlands (JTA) — Dozens of demonstrators shouted menacing slogans about Jews at a rally at one of the largest immigrant neighborhoods in The Netherlands.
The demonstrators gathered Friday in the Schilderswijk, a neighborhood of approximately 33,000 residents in The Hague where half the population was born either in Turkey or Morocco, or to parents who were born in those countries.
The rally was a show of support for ISIS, or the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, a radical Sunni militia group fighting Shiites and others in both countries.
Holding up the black ISIS flag, the crowd chanted in Arabic, “Jews, remember Khaybar, the army of Muhammad is returning.” The cry relates to an event in the seventh century when Muslims massacred and expelled Jews from the town of Khaybar, in modern-day Saudi Arabia.
The demonstrators — all men and many of them wearing masks and hoods that concealed their faces — also chanted “Allah is the greatest” and protested efforts by Dutch police to track down Muslims jihadists who fought or are planning to fight in Syria.
“Our Muslim youngsters have to deal with terror and intimidation of the police in The Hague,” one of the speakers was filmed saying. “We are fed up; this has to end now.”
