HERITAGE FLORIDA JEWISH NEWS, NOVEMBER 21, 2014 ISIS beheads American aid worker, an Iraq war veteran (JTA)--The Islamic State jihadist group beheaded an American hostage. tn a video posted online Sunday morning on jihadist and social networking sites, the group also known as ISIS and ISIL said it beheaded American aid worker Peter Kassig, who went by the name Abdul-Rahman Kassig after converting to Islam. Kassig, 26, of Indianapo- lis, was abducted in October 2013 in Syria He founded a Turkey-based nonprofit group that assists refugees on both sides of the Syria- Turkey border. Kassig served in the U.S. Army during the Iraq war and was honorably discharged in 2007 over a medical ailment. President Obama con- firmed that the vide6 was au- thentic and said that Kassig was killed in "an act of pure evil by a terrorist group that the world rightly associates with inhumanity." The video reportedly did not show the actual behead- ing but showed a black- masked man speaking with a British accent with a bloody decapitated head at his feet. "This is Peter Edward Kassig, a U.S. citizen of your country; Peter who fought against the Muslims in Iraq while serving as a soldier," the masked man said. The one who purport- edly is Kassig is dressed and sounds the same as the man seen in four other beheading videos, including that of dual American-Israeli citizen Steven Sotloff. For the first time, the video identified where the beheading took place. "Here, we are burying the first American crusader in Dabiq, eagerly waiting for the remainder of your armies to arrive," the believed execu- tioner said. Dabiq is located in north- ern Syria near the border with Turkey. The video also reportedly showed the beheading of several men identified as Syrian military personnel, the French news agency AFP reported. Kassig founded SERA, 6r Special Emergency Re- sponse and Assistance, work- ing from Turkey to provide food and medical supplies to refugee camps on both sides of the Syria-Turkey border while helping refugees flee the more then three-year- long civil war in Syria, ac- cording to ABC News. Videos released since Aug. 19 have shown the beheading of Sotloff, American journal- ist James Foley, and British aid workers David Haines and Alan Henning. Netanyahu accuses Abbas of incitement in Jerusalem JERUSALEM (JTA)--Is- raeli Prime Minister Ben- jamin Netanyahu accused PalestinianAuthority Presi- dent lahmoud Abbas of in- citement as the P.A.'s official media called for a day of rage in Jerusalem. Netanyahu pointed out the call at the beginning of the weekly Cabinet meeting on Sunday. On Thursday, Netanyahu, U.S. Secretary of State John Weekly roundup of world briefs from JTA Kerry and Jordan's King Abdullah II agreed after meeting in Amman to de- escalate the situation on the Temple Mount and make it clear that the status quo will be upheld. "Abu Mazen must halt the incitement that leads to acts of violence," Netanyahu said Sunday, using Abbas' nom de guerre. "This is one of the roots of the inflamed moods that are fueled by Islamist extremist propaganda and propaganda by the Palestin- ian Authority." Netanyahu also called rumors that Israel intends to change the status quo on the Temple Mount "a gross lie." Since capturing the holy site during the 1967 Six- Day War, Israel has severely restricted access for Jewish worshippers, in part not to inflame tensions. The status quo continues to restrict Jewish worship on the mount. The day after the Jordan meeting, Israel removed its age limitation on entrance to the Temple Mount, for the first time in two weeks allowing Muslim men under the age of 50 to enter the compound that contains the A1-Aqsa Mosque, Army Radio reported. The Palestinian Maan news agency reported Sun- day that Netanyahu will meet again with Abdullah in the coming days to continue discussions over tensions surrounding the Temple Mount, citing Jordanian parliament member Moham- med al-Katatshe. Israel bans Norwegian doctor, co-author of Lancet letter, from Gaza JERUSALEM (JTA)--A Norwegian doctor who was among the authors of a letter slamming Israel published in The Lancet was banned permanently from the Gaza Strip. The Israeli government said the ban on Dr. Mads Gilbert was for security rea- sons, according to an email from the Norwegian embassy in Tel Aviv to The Local, a Norwegian daily. Gilbert, 67, told The Lo- cal he believes he is being excluded because he has made critical comments against Israel. The doctor said he has spent over 30 years working in international conflict areas, especially Gaza, The Local reported. He spent more than a month this summer work- ing at Gaza's Shifa Hospital helping to treat some of the thousands injured in Israel's operation in Gaza. Gilbert reportedly was traveling to Gaza late last month and was prevented from crossing from Israel into Gaza. Norwegian government officials reportedly have asked Israel to change its decision. In "An open letter for the people of Gaza" published this summer in The Lancet, a British medical journal, Gilbert and his co-authors accused Israel of committing a"massacre" in Gaza, among other things. "This is not about me. This is about Israel denying the Palestinian people in Gaza international support," Gil- bert told the British daily The Independent on Saturday. "To deny professionals from the medical field the right to go to Gaza is another aspect of the collective pun- ishment. They're exercising the siege in an increasingly harsh and brutal way.,' Jewish man stabbed with screwdriver in Jerusalem JERUSALEM (JTA)--A Jewish man was stabbed with a screwdriver in central Jerusalem. The victim, 32, was treated on the scene for stab wounds to his upper body before be- ing taken to Shaarey Zedek Medical Center in the city. The assailant reportedly was a Palestinian youth who was seen fleeing toward the Damascus Gate on the northwest side of Jerusalem. .Police said they set up roadblocks in their search for the attacker. The attack comes on the heels of Arab unrest in Je- rusalem and several attacks using cars and stabbing in the past two weeks. Debate tabled on bill naming Israel national homeland for Jews JERUSALEM (JTA)--A Knesset committee vote on a law to officially make Israel the nation-state of all Jews was postponed. Justice Minister Tzipi Livni, head of the centrist Hatnua party, on Sunday postponed her ministerial committee for legislation's vote on the bill known as the Nationality Law. "The explosive situation that exists in the Arab sector at the moment has a/ready led to violent clashes and casualties. A discussion on the Nationality Law at this time is irresponsible," Sci- ence, Technology and Space Minister Yaakov Peri said in requesting the delay of the vote during the committee meeting. The bill calls Israel the national homeland of the Jewish people and would make Hebrew the official language, with Arabic hav- ing "special status." It also calls Jewish law a basis for new legislation. Prime Minister Benja- min Netanyahu, who sup- ports the bill, said after the committee meeting that he would submit the bill directly to the full Cabinet for discussion. "The S{ate of Israel is the national state of the Jewish People," NetanYahu said in a statement. "This is a central issue which is important for the future of the Jewish People in the State of Israel." The statement came hours after Netanyahu had opened the Cabinet meeting by saying he would move for- ward on the bill, which was proposed by Zeev Elkin, a member of his Likud party. Netanyahu acknowledged, however, that the bill "will yet undergo many changes and discussions, but we will make it clear that the State of Israel is the national state of the Jewish People, while providing for equal rights - and ensuring equal rights - for all its citizens." Israel orders razing of Palestinian car attack- er's family home JERUSALEM (JTA)--The family home of the Pales- tinian man who killed two people when he drove into a crowd of commuters at a Je- rusalem Light Rail stop was ordered to be demolished. Israel sent the family of Abdelrahman al-Shaludi the &molition order on Friday; the family had 48 hours to appeal. The home is on the fourth floor of an apart- ment building in the eastern Jerusalem neighborhood of Silwan. • Shaludi crashed his car on Oct. 22 into the Ammu- nition Hill light rail station in northern• A 3-month-old girl died at the scene and a 22-year-old visitor from Ec- uador, who was in the process of converting to Judaism, died four days later. Eight people also were injured in the attack as passengers were disembarking from the train. Shaludi attempted to flee on foot and was shot and killed by police, who con- firmed that he had previously served time in an Israeli prison. The family has denied that Shaludi executed a terror at- tack, saying he lost control of his car. The B'Tselem human rights organization in a statement issued Sunday called the demolition order "collective punishment that is both unlawful and im- moral." The group called upon the authorities to reverse the demolition order. Knesset advances bill forcing free Adelson- owned newspaper to charge readers JERUSALEM (JTA--Is- raeli lawmakers in a prelimi- nary vote approved a bill that would make free distribution of a major newspaper illegal. The bill's chief target is Israel Hayom, a free Israeli newspaper owned by Ameri- can billionaire Sheldon Adelson. The bill passed its first reading last week by a vote of 43 to 23. Sponsored by Labor party lawmaker Eitan Cabel, the bill will now be sent to a Knesset committee to be revised for its second and third Knesset plenum votes. While the bill targets all newspapers that are dis- tributed for free, it has been clear its intent is to force the Adelson-owned newspaper, which is considered to be a mouthpie& for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netan- yahu, to charge customers. Founded in 2007, Israel Hayom is the only major free Israeli paper and recently became Israel's most-read. The bill would mandate that Israel's least-expensive major paper charge no less than 70 percent the price of its next-most-expensive competitor. "This is a bill in favor of pluralism and multiple opinions," Cabel told the lawmakers. "It is a battle so that, in a few years, we do not become a country with only one newspaper. Sheldon Adelson wants to bury a mar- ket that is fighting for its life. "Israel Hayom does not exist because of its success as a newspaper but because of the hundreds of millions in gambling funds that are funneled to it from overseas. Does anyone in this room honestly think that this is how a model for a normal newspaper looks? That this is how fair competition looks?" Opponents of the bill, however, say it is a violation of democratic rights. "What is this? Since when do parliaments close news- papers? Are we Bolsheviks?" asked Likud party lawmaker Moshe Feiglin, who has been the object of significant criti- cism in the newspaper. Following Jordan talks, Israel lifts Temple Mount age limitation (JTA)--TFollowing tri- lateral talks with Jordan and the United States on de-escalating tensions in Jerusalem, Israel removed its age limitation on entrance to the Temple Mount. Last Friday, Israel for the first time in two weeks allowed Muslim men under the age of 50 to enter the Temple Mount compound, which contains the Al- Aqsa Mosque, Army Radio reported• The limitation came af- ter several weeks of violent clashes in eastern Jerusalem between Israeli troops and Palestinian protesters, and a spike in terrorist attacks in Jerusalem and the West Bank. Its lifting came hours after U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry met in Amman with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and King Abdullah II of Jordan. At a news conference in Amman on Nov. 13, Kerry said that in the talks the leaders agreed "to make sure that they de-escalate the situ- ation, and that the Steps they take will instill confidence that the status quowill be up- held." He declined to specify the steps in question. "There are firm commit- ments, particularly from the custodian of the holy mosque," Kerry said in ref- erence to Jordan, "as well as Israel, to guarantee that they will take these steps." Asked whether Jordan would return its ambassador to Israel, who was recalled for consultation during the escalation period, Jordanian Foreign Minister Nasser Judeh said: "Let's see what happens and then we'll review our decision, but we have to see what happens on the ground first." Meanwhile, security forces in Jerusalem were deployed in large numbers to respond to 'rioting, Army Radio reported. On Nov. 13, an 11-year-old Palestinian boy was injtred when a sponge bullet fired by Israel Police hit him in the face. The incident happened during a demonstration in the eastern Jerusalem neighborhood of Issawiya. Police fired the bullets, as well as tear gas and other crowd control methods, as masked Palestinian youths threw rocks at them, AFP reported. The bullet smashed the youth's nose and caused heavy bleeding. He is being treated at Hadassah Medical Center in Ein Kerem, where he is listed in moderate condition. Suspected Kansas City JCC shooter says he targeted Jews (JTA)--The white su- premacist suspect in the PAGE 13A shootings of three people at two Jewish institutions in suburban Kansas City said he wanted to "be sure I killed some Jews befm:e I died." Frazier Glenn Miller, who also goes by the name Frazier Glenn Cross, told the Kansas City Star in an interview published Sunday that he decided in March to carry out the April attacks on two Jewish sites in the city after he became so sick with em- physema that he thought he would soon die. "I was convinced I was dy- ing the," Miller, of Aurora, Mo., told the newspaper in his first published interview since the April 13 attacks. He went on to say, "I wanted to make damned sure I killed some Jews or attacked the Jews before I died•" Miller is suspected of kill- ing William Lewis Corporon, a retired physician, and his 14-year-old grandson, Reat Griffin Underwood, in the parking lot of the Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City in Overland Park, • Kan., and then shooting to death Terri LaManno, a Catholic mother of two, in the parking lot at Village Shalom, a Jewish assisted-living facil- ity a few blocks away, where she was visiting her mother. None of the three victims were Jewish. Miller, a former Ku Klux Klan grand dragon, told the newspaper that he conducted reconnaissance missions of the Jewish Community Cen- ter and Village Shalom in the days before the shootings. "Because of what I did, Jews feel less secure," he said. "Every Jew in the world knows my name now and what I did. As for these ... white people who are ac- complices of the Jews, who attend their meetings and contribute to their fundrais- ing efforts and who empower the Jews, they are my enemy, too.Alot ofwhite people who associate with Jews, go to Jewish events and support them know that they're not safe either, thanks to me." He told the newspaper that he regretted killing "the young white boy." Miller was charged in April with capital murder and first-degree premeditated murder. The capital charge carries a death sentence; the premeditated murder charge • could result in life in prison. He had served three years in prison on weapons charg- es and for plotting the as- sassination of Morris Dees, founder of the Southern Poverty Law Center. French Muslims see Jews controlling na- tion's economy, media (JTA)--New surveys con- ducted in France suggested that Frenchmen of Muslim origin were far likelier to espouse anti-Semitic views than the general population. In the two surveys, which were conducted in recent months, 74 percent of re- spondents who self-identi- fied as observant Muslims agreed with the statement that Jews have too much in- fluence on French econom- ics, compared to 25 Percent in the general population.
