Catalonia Independence Activist: Jewish Community Split Over Secession Vote

The Jewish community in Catalonia is “heavily split” on the question of possible independence for the region of northeast Spain,...

“The investigation into the attack is making progress and we have succeeded in recreating 95 percent of the face of the murderer,” Dobrev reportedly told President Shimon Peres of Israel during a meeting in Jerusalem.

“Within a few days you will receive full pictures of the terrorist, those who sent him and his accomplices,” said Dobrev, adding that the investigation has so far revealed that the terrorist was in Bulgaria for approximately twenty days before he detonated a bomb on a bus packed with Israelis at the Burgas airport, killing five Israelis, including a pregnant woman, and the Bulgarian bus driver.

Dobrev also informed that a search for more possible accomplices to the bombing is currently in progress.

In the aftermath of the attack, Bulgarian authorities released the airport’s closed circuit television footage displaying a young man with long hair who is believed to be the perpetrator.

His age is estimated to be “between 25 and 30-something” and he is described as having a fair complexion, possibly of Arab heritage, according to Galina Mileva, the coroner who inspected his remains.

Israel has condemned both Iran and Hezbollah, who are believed to be responsible for the attack, for their ongoing terror activity against the Jewish state.

    JEWISH YOUTH LEARN TO SHOOT
    by Jewish Defense Organization
    http://WWW.JEWISHDEFENSE.ORG
    After September 11, the horrible attempted massacre of Jewish children in Los Angeles, and
    shootings of Jews in Chicago, there has been debate about the need to “get security” for
    synagogues and Jewish institutions. One recent author in the Forward even titled his well written
    piece “If Jews were armed” and advocated Jews being armed with guns as a deterent.

    But even the best of the writers have missed “historical precedent” which a knowledgeable
    Jewish Militant will always be sure to cite. The actions of Jewish resisting forcefuly against their
    oppressors is many, but the story of one brave Jewish Militant leader founder of the Jewish
    Self-Defense Organization Zev Jabotinsky needs to be told, and retold, so that no Jewish group
    and no Jews will make the mistakes of the past happen again.

    The year was 1905, and Jabotinsky had been speaking all across Russia trying to organize
    self-defense units like the one that had been put together in Odessa. It was launched after the
    Kishinev Pogrom. Jabotinsky spent day and night trying to arm Russian Jews just in case of a
    repeat of the horrible pogrom were to occur. His men actually saved Jews in a number of places,
    but many of the Jewish Establishment rejected his call for armed self-defense. Never was any
    Zionist leader condemned as loudly as he was, but never did the Jewish youth, teens, and college
    age students embrace a cause as the first modern day Jewish self-defense force. Jabotinsky after
    his men protected Jews became a household name, and many other Jewish groups imitated what
    his outfit had so bravely done.

    Following this Jaobtinsky spread his message of armed self-defense for Jews around the world.
    His slogan “Jewish Youth Learn to Shoot!” was even the title of an article he wrote in the
    Yiddish press in the late 1920’s a few short years before the coming storms of the Nazis.
    Jabotinsky set up special training camps all across Europe to teach young Jews to shoot.

    As the Nazis were rising to power, reform Rabbi Leo Baeck misleadingly told German Jews “the
    Nazis like dark coulds will pass.” Baeck, and many other leaders of the German Jewish
    establishment, urged German Jews to ignore Jabotinsky and his warnings of doom and his call
    for Jews to arm with guns. A few years later most of those Jews who laughed the loudest at
    Jabotinsky’s prophetic warnings would end up the chimney stacks of Auschwitz. Many looked
    back wishing they would have heeded Jabotinsky’s warning and acquired as much proficency in
    firearms as many of those unfortuante Jews had in the Greek classics. In many speeches I have
    asked Jews “if German Jews would have had guns before the Holocaust how many more Jews
    would be alive today?”

    The fact is neo-nazis today and yesterday’s nazis are cowards that are very good at shooting
    Jewish children. Now, if they had to face highly disciplined well trained legally armed Jews don’t
    you think that the pejorative “tables” and guns would have been turned? Who would they have
    been turned on? The neo-nazis who think think the entire Jewish community is an easy mark and
    every Jew a potential victim. We must learn from the mistakes of the past or we are doomed to
    repeat them. We must tell any Jewish Establishment leader that dares oppose this program that
    the blood of the children shot in the JCC is on their heads for not having security teams of trained
    Jews. We must also remind them that it was their predecessors 60 years ago that opposed
    Jabotinsky’s plan to arm and train Jews before the Holocaust. We will repeat Jabotinsky’s most
    famous quote on the right way to fight anti-semites until it’s in their heads, and they act on it. “It’s
    better to have a gun and not need it, than to need it and not have it!” This is what Jabotinsky
    taught then We can implement it now. It is the surest way to have safety in our synagogues, and
    in our homes.
