The following is an official release from:

The Office of Prime Minister Stephen Harper

re: In response to the situation in Israel

Prime Minister Stephen Harper today issued the following statement in response to the situation in Israel:

“The indiscriminate rocket attacks from Gaza on Israel are terrorist acts, for which there is no justification. It is evident that Hamas is deliberately using human shields to further terror in the region.

“Failure by the international community to condemn these reprehensible actions would encourage these terrorists to continue their appalling actions. Canada calls on its allies and partners to recognize that these terrorist acts are unacceptable and that solidarity with Israel is the best way of stopping the conflict.

“Canada is unequivocally behind Israel. We support its right to defend itself, by itself, against these terror attacks, and urge Hamas to immediately cease their…

CALIPHATE GOES NUCLEAR: ISIS Seizes 88 Pounds of Uranium From Mosul University

Posted by Jim Hoft on Wednesday, July 9, 2014

The uranium could be used for “manufacturing weapons of mass destruction.”

The uranium could be used for “manufacturing weapons of mass destruction.”

The Iraqi ambassador told the United Nations this week that ISIS terrorists seized 88 pounds of uranium from Mosul University.
Reuters reported, via The News Commenter:

Insurgents in Iraq have seized nuclear materials used for scientific research at a university in the country’s north, Iraq told the United Nations in a letter appealing for help to “stave off the threat of their use by terrorists in Iraq or abroad.”

Nearly 40 kilograms (88 pounds) of uranium compounds were kept at Mosul University, Iraq’s U.N. Ambassador Mohamed Ali Alhakim told U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon in the July 8 letter obtained by Reuters on Wednesday.

“Terrorist groups have seized control of nuclear material at the sites that came out of the control of the state,” Alhakim wrote, adding that such materials “can be used in manufacturing weapons of mass destruction.”

“These nuclear materials, despite the limited amounts mentioned, can enable terrorist groups, with the availability of the required expertise, to use it separate or in combination with other materials in its terrorist acts,” said Alhakim.

The Iraqis also admitted this week that ISIS looted the Muthanna chemical weapons complex in June.

So now ISIS has nuclear material and chemical weapons material in their arsenal.
How comforting.

Haym Salomon: The rest of the story

Michael Feldberg

haym.salomonhttp://www.jewishworldreview.com IN the pantheon of American Jewish heroes, Haym Salomon (1740-1785) has attained legendary status. His life was brief and tumultuous, but his impact on the American imagination was great. The U.S. Postal Service issued a stamp hailing Salomon as a “Financial Hero of the American Revolution.” A monument to Salomon, George Washington and Robert Morris graces East Wacker Drive in Chicago and Beverly Hills, California, is home to an organization called the American Jewish Patriots and Friends of Haym Salomon.

However, Salomon’s life was not all triumph. A successful financier in the early 1780s, he died in 1785 leaving a wife and four young children with debts larger than his estate. When his son petitioned Congress to recover money he claimed his father was owed by the government, various committees refused to recognize the family’s claims. In 1936, Congress did vote to erect a monument to Salomon in the District of Columbia, but funds for the actual construction were never appropriated.

Born in Lissa, Poland, in 1740, Salomon spent several years moving around western Europe and England, developing fluency in several languages that served him well for the remainder of his life. Reaching New York City in 1772, he swiftly established himself as a successful merchant and dealer in foreign securities. Striking up an acquaintance with Alexander MacDougall, leader of the New York Sons of Liberty, Salomon became active in the patriot cause. When war broke out in 1776, Salomon got a contract to supply American troops in central New York. In 1777, he married Rachel Franks, whose brother Isaac was a lieutenant colonel on George Washington’s staff. Their ketubah resides at the American Jewish Historical Society.

In the wake of a fire that destroyed much of New York City, British occupation forces arrested and imprisoned Salomon. He gained release because the British hoped to use his language skills to communicate with their German mercenaries. Instead, Salomon covertly encouraged the Hessians to desert. Arrested again in early 1778, Salomon had his property confiscated. A drum-head court martial sentenced him to hang. Salomon escaped – probably with the help of other Sons of Liberty – and fled penniless to Philadelphia. His wife and child joined him soon afterward.

In Philadelphia, Salomon resumed his brokerage business. The French Minister appointed him paymaster general of the French forces fighting for the American cause. The Dutch, and Spanish governments also engaged him to sell the securities that supported their loans to the Continental Congress.

In 1781, Congress established the Office of Finance to save the United States from fiscal ruin. Salomon allied himself with Superintendent of Finance William Morris and became one of the most effective brokers of bills of exchange to meet federal government expenses. Salomon also personally advanced funds to members of the Continental Congress and other federal officers, charging interest and commissions well below the market rates. James Madison confessed that “I have for some time … been a pensioner on the favor of Haym Salomon, a Jew broker.”

While supporting the national cause, Salomon also played a prominent role in the Philadelphia and national Jewish community affairs. He served as a member of he governing council of Philadelphia’s Congregation Mikveh Israel. He was treasurer of Philadelphia’s society for indigent travelers, and participated in the nation’s first known rabbinic court of arbitration. Salomon helped lead the successful fight to repeal the test oath which barred Jews and other non-Christians from holding public office in Pennsylvania.

He operated within the context of a society, and an age, that considered all Jews as Shylocks and money grubbers. In 1784, writing as “A Jew Broker,’ Salomon protested charges that Jewish merchants were profiteering. Salomon thought it unjust that such charges were “cast so indiscriminately on the Jews of this city at large . . . for the faults of a few.” His impassioned defense of his fellow Jews brought him national approbation.

Within five years of his arrival in Philadelphia, Salomon advanced from penniless fugitive to respected businessman, philanthropist and defender of his people. He risked his fortune, pledged his good name and credit on behalf of the Revolution, and stood up for religious liberty. Despite financial setbacks at the end of his life, Salomon’s name is forever linked to the idealism and success of the American Revolution, and to the contributions Jews have made to the cause of American freedom.

From Private to Colonel: Jewish Service in the Revolutionary War

Peter Egill Brownfeld
Spring 2006

Too bad none of this is taught in our public, government run, politically correct, schools

The American Revolution ushered in an unparalleled freedom for Jews and is the first war in Western history where Jewish service became expected and even obligated, representing a certain admission to American society. Jews answered the call and served alongside their gentile colleagues in a wide range of roles. They engaged in what were more typical Jewish professions at the time — financing the war effort, privateering, and supplying the troops. However, many Jews also served in combat roles from the most humble foot soldier to that of officers ranking as high as colonel. Jews served as officers in the American army at a time when they could only become officers in Britain if they took an oath as a Christian. The Jewish population in the colonies was approximately 2,500, and about 100 men engaged in military service including active combat and affiliation with local militias. Their stories include dramatic acts of bravery and a willingness to lay down their lives to help build the new country.

Some writers have attempted to glorify the American Jewish experience of the Revolutionary War as one of undiluted patriotism for the colonial cause. No tale from history is so clear-cut, and the story of American Jews during the Revolution is as layered and complicated as that of their counterparts of other faiths. The Revolution was not only the fight of colonists for independence, but also a fight between colonists. There were three distinct groups of roughly equal size during the Revolution: Loyalists, who remained faithful to the British Crown; Whigs or Patriots who joined the rebellion; and those without a strong opinion who wanted to avoid an active role in the conflict. The fact that Jews fell into these categories just like all Americans is no stain on their patriotism, but rather a sign that they were so well integrated that their sympathies did not significantly diverge from their non-Jewish neighbors.

The importance of the Revolution on world Jewish history cannot be underestimated. Jacob R. Marcus, Professor of American Jewish History and Director of the American Jewish Archives at Hebrew Union College, writes: “In some respects the American Revolution was the most important event in world Jewish history since the third century. In the year 212 the Emperor Caracalla granted Roman citizenship … to all free inhabitants of the empire. After that day the Jewish people lived through a dozen holocausts nursed by social and legal disabilities that reduced them to the status of second-class citizens or, worse, outcasts. Then came the American Revolution with its Great Promise in the Declaration of Independence, that inasmuch as all men are created equal they are endowed with certain inalienable rights. The Jews interpreted ‘life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness’ to mean political, social, and economic opportunity, as well as religious equality.”

Jewish Military Service

Jewish military service largely mirrored that of their Christian neighbors, which was significant because of the historic exclusion of Jews from western militaries and because of its implications for future acceptance in American society. About 15 of the 100 Jewish soldiers on the American side served as officers in the colonial army, a number roughly matching the proportion in the army as a whole. The stories of several individual soldiers are dramatic and lead to a fuller understanding of the Jewish wartime experience.

Solomon Bush is probably the Jewish officer with the longest war record. Bush wrote in a petition to Congress on 8 December 1780 that he entered “the service of our country in the earliest period of our most glorious contest, that animated with zeal he pushed forward to meet the foe, and received a considerable wound which has deprived him of serving his country in the field.”

Samuel Rezneck, in his book “Unrecognized Patriots: The Jews in the American Revolution,” describes Bush’s story in detail: “Solomon enrolled as a captain and adjutant early in 1776 in the famed ‘Flying Camp of Associators of Pennsylvania.’ He saw action in the Battle of Long Island, which led to a retreat and the loss of New York by Washington’s army. Many of this unit were taken prisoner. It was mobilized again in 1777 for the defense of Philadelphia against an expected attack. It came in the fall, and Bush, now a major, had his thigh broken shortly after the Battle of Brandywine. In the meantime, Bush had been promoted to lieutenant-colonel and was made deputy adjutant-general of the Pennsylvania militia. The injured Bush hid out in his father’s house during the British occupation, but was discovered, taken prisoner, and placed on parole. He was incapacitated for further service, although he wrote to a friend, Henry Lazarus, in Virginia: ‘My wishes are to be able to get satisfaction and revenge the rongs [sic] of my injured country.’ The Supreme Executive Council of Pennsylvania commended Bush for his earlier military exploits, ‘when the service was critical and hazardous.’”

Southern Patriots

Francis Salvador was a prominent exponent of the American cause, who lost his life in the Revolution. Born in London in 1747, he emigrated to America in 1773, and built an indigo plantation in South Carolina. Despite his British roots, Salvador adopted the anti-English sentiment common in frontier regions like the one where Salvador had established himself. He became politically active, serving in the First and Second Provincial Congresses between 1773 and 1776, helping prepare South Carolina’s first state constitution. In these roles, he was the only Jew to play a policy making role during the Revolution. His military activities began when he volunteered for a local militia raised under Major Andrew Williamson. Salvador was killed on August 1, 1776, when a band of Cherokee Indians incited by local Tories ambushed the militia unit and shot and scalped Salvador.

Another leading Jewish patriot from the South was Mordecai Sheftall, who was a chairman of a Committee of Safety in Savannah, which sought to rally support for the American cause, while discrediting the Loyalists. In 1776 he organized and led a group that forced its way onto a vessel in the harbor and removed its gunpowder, which was then shipped to Boston for Washington’s army. The royalist governor of Georgia complained to the government in London that the Jews “were found to a man to have been violent rebels and persecutors of the King’s loyal subjects. They must not be allowed to return to Georgia.” In the Disqualifying Act of 1780, the British listed Mordecai Sheftall as “chairman of the Rebel Parochial Committee,” who had interfered with the King’s business. This act, which disqualified many Georgians from future political activity in the state, also excluded at least five other Jews—Levi Sheftall, Sheftall Sheftall, Philip Minis, Cushman Polock, and Philip Jacob Cohen, all of whom were shopkeepers.

In Charleston, South Carolina, there was a company led by a Captain Lushington, that was referred to as a “Jew Company” because it included between 26 and 34 Jews. According to Barnet Elzas, Charleston’s rabbi a century later and historian of the Charleston Jewish community, Jews contributed proportionately as much as their neighbors and gave “as freely as their means to the cause.”

David Franks’ Story

David Franks’ story of service to America spans three continents and several roles, including soldier and diplomat. He was born in Philadelphia in 1743 and was among the first Jews to start a business in Montreal after the British conquest in 1763. In Montreal in 1775, a statue of King George III was vandalized with the words ‘This is the pope of Canada and the fool of England.’ Franks played no role in the incident, but was suspected of being involved and arrested after having been overheard saying “in England men are hanged for such small offenses.” Although he was released after a week, the governor, Sir Guy Carleton, included him in a “list of principal leaders of sedition.”

When the American army captured Montreal in 1775, Franks joined them, later commenting, “My good offices and purse were ever open to them, at a time when they had neither friend nor money.” When the American army retreated from Montreal, Franks followed it, having been issued a pass that certified him as “a friend to the American cause.”

Rezneck writes: “Franks attached himself to Benedict Arnold, whom he had met in Montreal, and was possibly with him as a volunteer at the Battle of Saratoga in 1777. He was perhaps with him, too, in the Albany hospital where Arnold recovered from serious wounds. Because of his knowledge of French, he was later a liaison officer to Count d’Estaing, the commander of the French forces in America, and he was perhaps also for a time an aide to General Benjamin Lincoln in South Carolina.” After Arnold’s betrayal, Franks requested a public court of inquiry to clear his name. Washington agreed, and the court exonerated Franks, with the following statement: “every part of Major D.S. Franks’ conduct was not only unexceptionable but reflects the highest honor on him as an officer, distinguished him as a zealous friend to the independence of America, and justly entitles him to the attention and confidence of his countrymen.”

Diplomatic Missions

Between 1781 and 1787, Franks served in various diplomatic missions, shuttling back and forth between Europe and America. He worked with and for Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, John Adams, John Jay, and other American diplomats in Europe. Early in 1784, Franks was charged with carrying to Europe one of the three copies of the peace treaty ratified by Congress. He remained in Europe for three years acting as a courier, and carrying messages and papers to and from Jefferson, Adams, and Jay.

Jefferson commented on Franks in a letter to James Madison: “He appears to have a good eno’ heart and understanding, somewhat better than common but too little guard on his lips. I have marked him particularly in the company of women where he loses all power over himself and becomes almost a fright. His temperature would not be proof against their allurements, were such to be used as engines against him. This is in some measure the vice of his age but it seems to be increased by his peculiar constitution.” Madison agreed with Jefferson’s description, and wrote: “For all unconfidential services he is a convenient instrument. For anything farther … I am afraid.”

Franks’ other diplomatic roles included vice-consul at Marscilles and participating in the negotiation of a treaty with Morocco, which he then brought back with him to America in 1787. Before Franks left for America, Jefferson wished him “health, happiness, and good passage.” Jefferson wrote to Madison at the same time: “You will see Franks, doubtless he will be asking some appointment. I wish there may be one for which he is fit.” He offered a mixed recommendation: “He is light, indiscreet, active, honest, affectionate.”

A distant relation to David Franks was Isaac Franks, who enlisted in Colonel Lasher’s Volunteers of New York at the age of 17. His service was not as exciting as David’s, but probably more typical. Rezneck writes: “He served in the Long Island campaign in 1776, when he was wounded and taken prisoner. He escaped to New Jersey in a leaky skiff with one paddle and rejoined Washington’s army, with which he remained through all its many changes of fortune. He became a forage master and performed its routine functions conscientiously. … In 1781 he was commissioned an ensign in the Seventh Massachusetts Regiment, also stationed at West Point, and he remained with it until he was discharged in the following year for a complaint of kidney gravel.”
Benjamin Nones

Benjamin Nones, who was born in Bordeaux in 1757 and came to America in 1777, volunteered for the American army, and ultimately served as an officer. Nones wrote to Jefferson in 1800: “as an American throughout the whole of the Revolutionary War, in the militia of Charleston, and in Polaskey’s [Pulaski's] [sic] legion, I fought in almost every action which took place in Carolina, and in the disastrous affair of Savannah, shared the hardships of that sanguinary day, and for twenty-three years I have felt no disposition to change my politics, any more than my religious principles.” In December 1779, French Captain Verdier, who was attached to Pulaski’s corps wrote “to certify that Benjamin Nones has served as a volunteer in my company during the campaign of this year and at the siege of Savannah in Georgia, and his behavior under fire in all the bloody battles we fought has been marked by the bravery and courage which a military man is expected to show for the liberties of his country and which acts of said Nones gained in his favor the esteem of General Pulaski as well as that of the officers who witnessed his daring conduct.”

Philip Moses Russell was born in Philadelphia and enlisted with the American forces as a surgeon’s mate in 1777, although he does not appear to have had any medical training. In addition to serving in the Battle of Brandywine, he suffered the hard winter of 1777-1778 at Valley Forge. Because of exhaustion and an attack of camp fever, his sight and hearing suffered. He had to leave service in 1780, and received a special commendation from General Washington “for his assiduous and faithful attention to the sick and wounded, as well as his cool and collected deportment in battle.”

Service in Virginia

Mordecai Abrahams (Abrams) commanded a company of militia of German origin. Jacob Cohen was captain of a cavalry company in the continental line and was at the Battle of Yorktown in 1781, as attested to by Lafayette. Moses Myers, born in New York in 1752, became a major in the Virginia militia. He served with General Sumter and was present at Yorktown. Samuel Myers, the son of Myer Myers, the famous New York silversmith, also served in a Virginia unit during the Revolution. Moses Myers finally settled in Norfolk, where he was elected president of the city council and Samuel resided in Richmond, where he served as an alderman.

“An unusual sidelight on the Revolution in Virginia,” writes Samuel Rezneck, “is supplied by Dr. John de Sequeyra of Williamsburg. Born in London of a Portuguese Jewish family, he was trained as a doctor at Leyden in Holland and emigrated to Williamsburg in 1745. Here he practiced medicine for half a century, dying in 1795. He was too old to participate actively in the revolution, but he kept a diary reporting diseases prevalent in Virginia for many years. It is interesting to note that for 1781, the year of the great victory at Yorktown, de Sequeyra recorded the serious spread of smallpox brought by the British army, for which many died.”

During his years in Williamsburg, it is reported, de Sequeyra treated Jefferson, Washington and others active in the patriotic cause.

Smuggling, Supplying, and Financing

In addition to military service, Jews played significant roles as financiers, suppliers, and privateers. In fact, it was in these areas that they made their greatest contributions because of their experience in these fields. The best-known Jew of the revolutionary era and probably the one who made the greatest contribution to the American cause, was the financier Haym Salomon, who had the title “Broker to the Office of Finance of the United States,” as well as “Treasurer of the French Army in America.”

Salomon was born in Poland, and at the age of 32 emigrated to New York in 1772. Salomon continued the career as a currency trader that he had begun in Europe. When the war broke out, he began trading Continental currency for hard Dutch and French currencies. In his book “A History of Jews in America,” Howard M. Sachar writes: There is no doubt that Salomon’s “efforts to negotiate Continental currency and bonds were a godsend to the revolutionary government, as were his personal interest-free loans to government officials, among them Madison, Jefferson, James Wilson, Edmond Randolph, and Generals von Steuben, St. Clair, and Mifflin of the Continental Army.”

Jewish shippers and smugglers also played a key. role in supplying the American cause. Jews from the Dutch Caribbean island St. Eustatius smuggled vital goods through the British blockade. One firm that had particular success in smuggling goods was Isaac Moses and Company. The Amsterdam-based firm, in accordance with Dutch sympathies, shipped goods to St. Eustatius and local Jewish shippers transported them to American ports. In 1781, when British forces under Admiral George Rodney seized the island, its population, and particularly the Jews, were punished for their assistance to the American cause.

Jews also acted as civilian contractors. In his book “A History of Jews in America,” Howard M. Sachar writes: “In their European tradition, numerous Jewish wholesale merchants provided the army with clothing, gunpowder, lead, and other needed equipment. Bernard and Michael Gratz manufactured uniforms, employing the manpower of local poorhouses. Joseph Simon manufactured rifles in Lancaster. More commonly, suppliers subcontracted. It was a financial risk. The Continental Congress took its time settling accounts, and some contracts never were recompensed. … Nearly every Jewish contractor, privateer, and financier of note came out of the Revolution with his fortune either gone or painfully diminished.”


It would be a mistake to either ignore Jewish Loyalists or attempt to downplay their role in order to highlight Jewish contributions to the American cause. Jews who remained loyal to the British crown did so for a range of reasons, including because they were natives of Britain, because of the relatively low-level of anti-Semitism in Britain, as well as for personal political and financial reasons. The decision of some Jews to side with Britain when the war broke out shows that Jews in colonial America were engaged in the political process and did not act jointly as an isolated minority.

According to Jonathan D. Sarna, the author of “American Judaism: A History,” New York’s 400 Jews were sharply divided on the lines of Tory and Patriot, while in Newport, a substantial number of Jews remained loyal to Britain. “Many Jews vacillated and pledged allegiance to both sides in the dispute for as long as they could. Jews scarcely differed from their neighbors in this regard. Nativity, ties to Europe, and economic factors determined the loyalties of many colonists,” Sarna writes. Among the most prominent Jewish loyalists were: David Franks, royal purveyor and commissary-general of British troops; Myer Hart, supplier to British troops in Pennsylvania; Moses Nunes, searcher of the port of Savannah; and Myer Pollock, who aided the British war effort in Newport.

During the colonial period, Newport was a thriving Jewish center, and it was also the home to many Jewish Loyalists. Among the Loyalists were the Hart family, which had supplied the British army during the French and Indian War as well as engaging in privateering. After the war at least one of the Harts, Jacob, left America for England, where he was granted an annual pension of 40 pounds. When American forces recaptured Newport in 1779, they drew up a list of 50 Loyalists, which included at least 8 Jews— Haym and Simon Levi, Isaac and Jacob Isaacs, Benjamin Myers and his mother, Rachel, and Isaac Eliezer and his son.

Aid Peace Negotiations

One rather unusual story of a Jewish Loyalist is that of the British-born Jew Abraham Wagg, who sought to aid the peace negotiations. On 22 August, 1778, he drafted a letter titled “The Sentiments of a Friend to Great Britain and America,” which he sent to three British Commissioners for Peace. Wagg advised the British that they did not have enough men to pacify the colonies, and encouraged Britain to withdraw in order to concentrate on the preservation of its other possessions in Canada and the West Indies. He added that America’s “natural alliance” was with Britain, for economic if no other reason.

During the 1782 peace negotiations, Wagg offered more advice, this time to Britain’s foreign minister, Lord Shelbume. His titled his letter “Private Suggestions on a Plan to Dissolve the Connection of America with France.” Wagg advised the recognition of American independence and accurately predicted Anglo-American friendship based on a common culture and trade. Wagg wrote, that if such an alliance should develop, the Americans will “tell France and Spain that the law of nature and nature’s God entitles America … to be perpetually allied with Great Britain by the nearest ties of consanguinity, being of the same religion, speaking the same language, and remembering their former intercourse …” Although Wagg’s predictions would ultimately come true, his British interlocutors were not ready for these ideas, and his correspondence was ignored.

Independence for America, Liberty for Jews

For those Jews who risked their lives and their fortunes for the American cause, they were soon rewarded with the affirmation that Jews would have a secure place in the new country. The Declaration of Independence stated that “all men are created equal,” with no distinction based on religion. The First Amendment affirmed that “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.”

In July, 1790, Charleston’s synagogue, Beth Elohim, addressed a letter to President Washington. Composed by Jacob Cohen, a veteran of the Revolution, it recited the blessings and benefits of the new government in three long pages. It declared: “To the equal participation and enjoyment of all these (the natural and inalienable rights of human nature) it has raised us from the state of political degradation and grievous oppression to which partial, narrow, and illiberal policy and intolerant bigotry has reduced us in almost every other part of the world. Peculiar and extraordinary reason have we, therefore, to be attached to the free and generous Constitutions of our respective states, and to be indebted to you, whose heroic deeds have contributed so much to their preservation and establishment.”

When George Washington was inaugurated as the nation’s first president, in his now-famous letter to the Jewish congregation of Newport, Rhode Island, he made his position clear. “It is now no more that toleration is spoken of, as if it were by the indulgence of one class of people that any other enjoyed the exercise of their inherent natural rights. For happily the Government of the United States, which gives to bigotry no sanction, to persecution no assistance, requires only that they who live under its protection demean themselves as good citizens, in giving it on all occasions their effectual support. May the children of the Stock of Abraham, who dwell in this land, continue to merit and enjoy the good will of the other inhabitants, while everyone shall sit in safety under his own vine and fig tree and there shall be none to make him afraid.”

Religious Freedom

In 1785, Virginia passed its Act for Religious Freedom, authored by Thomas Jefferson, which stated that “no man shall be compelled to frequent or support any religious worship, place or ministry whatsoever … but that all men shall be free to profess and by argument to maintain, their opinions in matters of religion, and that the same shall in no wise diminish, enlarge or affect their civil capacities.” The Constitution (1787) and the Bill of Rights (1791) banned religious tests “as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States,” and forbade Congress from making any law “respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.”

Jews joined with their Christian neighbors to celebrate when the Constitution was adopted. Benjamin Rush commented on the ecumenical nature of the celebration: “Pains were taken to connect ministers of the most dissimilar religious principles together, thereby to show the influence of a free government in promoting Christian charity. The Rabbi of the Jews locked in the arms of two ministers of the gospel, was a most delightful sight. There could not have been a more happy emblem contrived, of that section of the new constitution, which opens all its powers and offices alike, not only to every sect of Christians, but to worthy men of every religion.”

How the Jews Saved the American Revolution

By Jerry Klinger

 star spangled banner

“They (the Jews of St. Eustatius, Caribbean Antilles) cannot too soon be taken care of – they are notorious in the cause of America and France.”
Admiral Sir George Rodney commander of the British Fleet, February, 1781.

The Colonial American Jewish experience 1654 – 1770 was characterized by sharp departures from historic European anti-Semitic patterns of isolation, social, economic, physical, legislative and religious discrimination. The American Colonial world was growing, changing and evolving so rapidly it did not have time to focus on historical Jewish scapegoat-ism. The demands of the frontier and the expanding new American economic power needed the best of all of its people.

Jews in Colonial America struggled and won rights that were inconceivable and nonexistent in Europe. Jews struggled for and won the rights to equal economic opportunity, to own land, to go to higher secular education, to serve in the armed militias, to vote and in some colonies to become members of the legislative bodies. In some colonies the struggle was easy, in others it was very hard.

The American experience was not an automatic entitlement to toleration and sufferance, rather the pre-revolutionary experience was one that permitted the old discriminations to be challenged and eventually to be put aside. Hatred of the Jew and imported anti-Semitism did exist but it could not flourish in the melting pot of common need and survival.

Patrick Henry, the revolutionary war governor of Virginia, rose in assembly and made his famous “Give me Liberty or Give me Death,” speech. He did so with the belief in liberty for all except for Jews, Blacks and Indians.

Jews traced their earliest participation in Virginia’s life from the 16th century with Sir Walter Raleigh through Jamestown and the revolution. The first permanent synagogue community Kehilah ha Kadosh Beth Shalome, was founded in 1789 in Richmond, Va.. Beth Shalome built its first permanent building in 1820 in Richmond. The president of the congregation at the time of dedication was Jacob Mordecai, born in 1762 in Philadelphia. His mother Elizabeth (Esther) Whitlock had been a Christian convert to Judaism.

Who could do the best became more important than who was who’s parentage in Colonial America. It was not until many years later that who were your parents and where did they come from became more important than what can you do to better yourself, your community and your country.

In 1753, the British Parliament, to legitimize and encourage economic development both in the colonies and in the mother country passed a Jewish Naturalization Bill. The purpose simply enough was to grant limited rights, such as land ownership, to foreign born Jews who wished to become British subjects. The bill had the opposite effect in England stirring intense violent anti-Semitic feeling and prejudices. The bill was repealed by Parliament in 1760. In Colonial America the legislation was generally ignored or circumspectly treated.

For almost a hundred years, if one colony refused to grant citizenship to a Jew the expedient thing was to go to another colony that would grant it or more simply ignore the issues of Naturalization entirely as most immigrants did. For the most part the tiny Jewish community was not affected by the machinations of the mother country’s bigotry. Jews were generally free to develop economically, participate in colonial life and practice their faith.

Political equality was not a universal right but an evolving right in colonial America. Yet it left a lasting impression on Jews before the Revolution that the old world, if given the opportunity, would try to transfer it’s bigotry to the new world. The repeal of the Naturalization act placed an awareness in the minds of much of colonial Jewry that America was different from Europe. It was the commonality of the challenge of America that was to shape American views and identity.

The colonies were different from each other, the North from the South, or the West. The British struggled to impose a central government on a frontier world that was rapidly developing far away from London. For the Jew, the Colonial experience was different in that there was no fully established homogenous world that they encountered. Rather they encountered a world that was being established and was not fully formed or mature. It was not until many years later, as the American frontier officially closed, (1890), that Nativism and the weak seeds of anti-Semitism would grow as Americans searched for identity.

The Jews tended to settle wherever doors were open; most frequently in the urban environments but also in rural and frontier areas. Jews did not come seeking freedom of religion as much as freedom of opportunity. Traditional Judaism weakened in the face of American freedom of choice only to be reborn later with an American voice.

The American Revolution, 1776-1783, did not start out intentionally as a revolution. The Colonial American world was an evolving, growing English world that demanded fair representation from the British Parliament. The British government saw the Americas as a source of money, power and natural resources to be delivered and ruled unquestioningly by the mother country.

The British government failed to realize that the Colonials saw themselves as British Americans with the right to a voice in their affairs, to influence their laws, their economy their frontiers and their taxation. The Revolutionary war was to be the longest war in American history prior to Vietnam. It was fought over a one thousand five hundred mile front on the developed farmlands of thirteen colonies, on the sea and on the frontier.

Oct. 25. 1765, a group of Philadelphia merchants gathered in the State House to sign the non-importation agreement to fight the hated Stamp Tax of the British government. The first man to step forward to sign his name was the president of Mikve Israel Congregation, Philadelphia’s only synagogue, Mathias Bush.

As the tensions between Britain and the American Colonies increased and finally erupted into war the American Colonial population was split almost into thirds; one third supported the war, one third was neutral and one third was pro British. The small Jewish population of America was also divided – the choice though was very heavily and disproportionally in favor and support of the American Revolution. Not only did the Jews pledge their fortunes and sacred honor for America but their very lives.

Compromise between Britain and its colonies could not be reached. The British blockaded Boston and sent an occupying army to take the city. The call to arms rang throughout the countryside. Volunteers rushed to defend the city at the Battle of Bunker Hill, June 17, 1776. The famous order of the American commander during the battle was “do not fire until you see the whites of their (the advancing British Regular’s) eyes.”

In the front ranks of the smoke and fire of battle was Aaron Solomon standing shoulder to shoulder with his Christian comrades of the Gloucester volunteers. Eight hundred miles to the South the British were stirring up the Cherokee Indians to attack and kill settlers on the South Carolina/Georgia frontiers.

Francis Salvador, a Jew of Sephardic heritage, the first Jew to be elected to a Colonial constituent assembly rode out to carry the alarm and raise the volunteers to repel the impending Indians attacks. He returned at the head of a force of frontiersmen only to be ambushed, shot down and scalped, July 1, 1776. Salvador had the dubious honor of being the first American Jew to give his life for his adopted country.

A few days later in Philadelphia, July 4, 1776, the Declaration of Independence was written. A copy was sent to Amsterdam via the small Dutch Caribbean Island of St. Eustatius. The Declaration was intercepted by the British at sea. An accompanying letter with the Declaration of Independence was also intercepted and sent to London as being a secret code about the document that needed to be deciphered – the letter was written in Yiddish.

The war was not going well at first for the young American army. Though facing hard times and even defeat, Jews stood and fought along with their neighbors. Into the terrible dark cold winter at Valley Forge, Abraham Levy and Phillip Russell stood their watch. Joseph Simon from his frontier forge at Lancaster, Pa. supplied the Army with the famous Henry Rifles. Jewish trading merchants, peaceful before the war, outfitted their ships to become privateers and ravage the British at sea. The cost to many was great, the great merchant traders of Newport, Rhode Island saw their fortunes lost.

Men such as Aaron Lopez were bankrupted supporting the Revolution when their ships were lost to the British. In the area of finance the young American government might have foundered too except for the financial genius and personal financial risk and support taken on by Hayim Solomon. Solomon was to die bankrupted by his total support of the American cause. Though small in number the Jews chose to caste their fate with America.

But how did the Jews save the American Revolution? As late as 1781 the war had not been won by the Americans nor was it lost by the British. Arms were being funneled into the Colonies by arms merchants running the British blockade primarily from the tiny free trading Island of Dutch St. Eustatius. Jewish merchants and arms traders were a major presence on the island.

In 1781, the British realized they had to cut off the open door of arms shipments to the rebels through St. Eustatius. Admiral Sir George Rodney was sent to capture the island. His goal was to destroy the supplies and destroy the island’s commercial and merchant class so they could not provide any more aide to the rebels. Early in 1781 the lightly defended island fell to the heavy presence of the main British battle fleet. Rodney in his vehemence destroyed the warehouses and the supplies. He burnt every home. He paid particular venomous attention to the Jews of St. Eustatius. The British burnt their homes and the synagogue, Honen Dalim, “She Who is Charitable to the Poor” – built 1739. Jewish property was confiscated and the men imprisoned with particular cruelty. Rodney spent months directing half his fleet to convey much of the stolen treasure back to England.

While Rodney was engaged in St. Eustatius, Lord Cornwallis and his army of British regulars were forced out of the Carolinas and retreated to the small port of Yorktown, Virginia on the James Peninsula. He needed to await critical re-provisioning and fresh reinforcements being brought by the British fleet. The weakened British fleet, with Cornwallis’s reinforcements, was intercepted at sea by the French fleet under Admiral DeGrasse and soundly defeated. DeGrasse took up positions at the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay blockading Yorktown from the Sea.

General George Washington saw his chance. Washington trapped and besieged Cornwallis. In short course Cornwallis surrendered. The war was over. The Americans had won with the help of the French.

But how did the Jews save the American Revolution? If the Jews had not helped turn St. Eustatius into a major arms center for the Revolution and if Admiral Rodney had not spent so much time destroying St. Eustatius and particularly the Jews, the war might have ended differently. There is little doubt that Admiral Rodney’s anti-Semitism helped squander his time and played a role in delaying and weakening the British fleet. Ironically it was the Jews of St. Eustatius who helped win the American Revolution.

Digging Out the Graves of Non-Muslims for Vengeance or Looting – A ‘Holy’ Tradition of Prophet Muhammad

A Christian Cemetery in Britain, desecrated by Muslims.

A Christian Cemetery in Britain, desecrated by Muslims.

by, Mirza Ghalib | Islam Watch

Recently a Christian father in Egypt was murdered in broad daylight on the street in front of his son by the followers of the ‘religion of peace’. The killing itself didn’t become big news for the world community, as if it is the right of Muslims to oppress and kill non-Muslims in Muslim-majority countries. However, the incident became a news only after the Muslim barbarians did the unimaginable:They dug out the corpse of the murdered Christian father from his grave, dragged it through the streets, and mutilated it.

This incident will certainly be shocking to non-Muslims. It will also be shocking to most of the ignorant Muslims, who bang their heads five times a day, without ever knowing much about their ‘religion’. But had they known Islam, the ‘Religion of peace’, well enough, this incident would not have been shocking or unusual to them. It is indeed a Sunnah, the holy tradition of Prophet Muhammad, left to his followers to emulate for the eternity to come. There are many incidents during the prophet’s time recorded in Sahih Hadiths, wherein Muslims dug out the corpse of non-Muslims from graves as a vengeance or for looting.

Digging out corpse of Muhammad’s rebellious Christian scribe from grave

It was impossible for illiterate Muhammad with a bunch of illiterate and low-class companions to fabricate a holy like the Quran for deceiving the Arabs. So he sought guidance and help from a few educated and knowledgeable Christian and Jewish scribes to write for him his ‘holy’ book by plagiarizing from other scriptures. Beyond that, his dominant method of converting the people was either bribing or terrorizing them. One such Christian scribe later on left him and used to say: “Muhammad knows nothing but what I have written for him”. Muhammad spared nobody who satirized or criticized him, be they men or women, young or old, free or slave. Soon after the rebellious Christian scribe said those things about Muhammad, he was ‘mysteriously’ dead. Whether or not Muhammad’s hand was behind his death, Muhammad certainly did not allow dead-body to ‘rest in peace’ in grave because of his exposing of Muhammad’s embarrassing secrets. After he was buried, the followers of the holy prophet dug out his dead-body repeatedly from his grave until the relatives of the deceased man became fed up and left the body unattended. Here are the hadiths:

Narrated Anas: There was a Christian who embraced Islam and read Surat-al-Baqara and Al-Imran, and he used to write (the revelations) for the Prophet. Later on he returned to Christianity again and he used to say: “Muhammad knows nothing but what I have written for him.” Then ALLAH CAUSED HIM TO DIE, and the people buried him, but in the morning they saw that THE EARTH HAD THROWN HIS BODY OUT. They said, “This is the act of Muhammad and his companions. They dug the grave of our companion and took his body out of it because he had run away from them.” They again dug the grave deeply for him, but in the morning they again saw that the earth had thrown his body out. They said, “This is an act of Muhammad and his companions. They dug the grave of our companion and threw his body outside it, for he had run away from them.” They dug the grave for him as deep as they could, but in the morning they again saw that the earth had thrown his body out. So they believed that what had befallen him was not done by human beings and had to leave him thrown (on the ground). (Sahih Al-Bukhari: 4:56:814)

Anas b. Malik reported: There was a person amongst us who belonged to the tribe of Bani Najjar and he recited Sura al-Baqarah and Surat Al-i-’Imran and he used to transcribe for Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him). He ran away as a rebel and joined the People of the Book. They gave it much importance and said: He is the person who used to transcribe for Muhammad and they were much pleased with him. Time rolled on that ALLAH CAUSED HIS DEATH. They dug the grave and buried him therein, but they found to their surprise that the earth had thrown him out over the surface. They again dug the grave for him and buried him but the earth again threw him out upon the surface. They again dug the grave for him and buried him but the earth again threw him out upon the surface. At last they left him unburied. (Sahih Muslim/ Book 38/ Hadith 6693)

Please refer to the following hadiths for similar killing orders of other scribes issued by Muhammad. (Sunan Abu Dawud/ Hadith: 2677, 4345 & 4346)

Muhammad’s digging out corpse of the rightful Medina leader, Abdullah ibn Ubay

In another similar incident, Muhammad’s showed his most evil mind by digging out the corpse of his another opponent, Abdullah ibn Ubay, for spitting into dead Abdullah’s mouth. Abdullah was the leader of the city of Medina when Muhammad migrated there. He was of noble birth, and abhorrent toward violence and inclined to peace and justice. As Muhammad’s Muslim gang grew fast after he started raiding and plundering for making a leaving and offered booty to bribe those who would join him, Abdullah became sidelined from the leadership position. He even had to convert to Islam outwardly, but remained respectable in Medina until his death. He opposed Muhammad’s most barbaric actions, often saving thousands of lives from Muhammad’s slaughter—the Banu Qainuqa and Nadir Jews, for example. Barbaric as he was, Muhammad naturally hated him intensely until he died, and showed his hatred toward Abdullah in the most horrifying way in how he dealt with Abdullah’s buried corpse:

Narrated Jabir: The Prophet came to (the grave of) ‘Abdullah bin Ubai after his body was buried. The body was brought out and then the Prophet put his saliva over the body and clothed it in his shirt. (Sahih Al-Bukhari 2:23:360)

Jabir reported Allah’s Apostle (may peace be upon him) came to the grave of ‘Abdullah b. Ubayy, brought him out from that, placed him on his knee and put his saliva in his mouth and shrouded him in his own shirt and Allah knows best. (Sahih Muslim/ Book 38/ hadith 6678)

Readers can learn more about Abdullah ibn Ubay from this article: Death of Noble Abdullah bin Ubayy and the Extreme Meanness of Prophet Muhammad.


Muhammad not only looted the non-Muslims caravans and communities for making a living, but also plundered the graves of rich non-Muslims after their death. The readers may feel stunned to learn about incredible incident:

Narrated Abdullah ibn Amr ibn al-’As: When we went out along with the Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) to at-Ta’if we passed a grave. I heard the Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) say: This is the grave of Abu Righal. He was in this sacred mosque (sanctuary) protecting himself (from punishment). When he came out, he suffered the same punishment which his people suffered at this place, and he was buried in it. The sign of it is that a golden bough was buried with him. If you dig it out, you will find it with him. The people hastened to it and took out the bough. (Abu Dawud/ Book 13/ hadith 3082)

Muhammad justifies his digging of graves for looting by blaming the Jews

To water down or justify his most shameful deeds, Muhammad had to invent lies to put the blames on non-Muslims:

Narrated Rabi bin Hirash: ……….Uqba bin ‘Amr said, “I heard him (Muhammad) saying that the Israeli used to dig the grave of the dead (to steal their shrouds).” (Sahih Al-Bukhari 4:56:659)

What an evil genius that Muhammad was!


Let us end this article with another shameful incident of Muhammad’s disrespect toward the graves of non-Muslims. Even today, Saudi Arabia has millions of square kilometers of unused barren land, and yet he chose to construct his Medina mosque and the living quarters for his community on the burial ground of Banu Najjar, one of the Jewish tribes that living in Medina when Muhammad arrived there. Muhammad ordered to dig out the corpses of deceased Banu Najjar men and women from their graves and built his mosque and living quarter upon it. This is the way Muhammad showed his gratitude toward Banu Najjar, in whose city his community found refuge in times of desperation. There are many hadiths speaks about this incident:

Narrated Anas: The Prophet came to Medina and ordered a mosque to be built and said, “O Bani Najjar! Suggest to me the price (of your land).” They said, “We do not want its price except from Allah” (i.e. they wished for a reward from Allah for giving up their land freely). So, the Prophet ordered the graves of the pagans to be dug out and the land to be leveled, and the date-palm trees to be cut down. The cut date-palms were fixed in the direction of the Qibla of the mosque. (Sahih Al-Bukhari 1:8:420/3:30:92/ 5:58:269) & (Sahih Muslim: Book4: Hadith1068)


Unless Muslims study their sacred religious scriptures and understands the evil teachings and personality of Prophet Muhammad, and the world wakes up to the reality of Islam, and understand how the age-old barbarism of Islam—temporarily in hibernation—is being revived over the past few decades, the future of our children and grandchildren is doomed. The challenge is right in front of us.

‘Muslim Mafia’ Author: ‘..Muslims Working With Facebook to Silence Critics of Islam..’

Posted by sharia unveiled on May 30, 2014


by, Joe Newby | The Examiner | Thank you to Christopher Collins

On Wednesday, Dave Gaubatz, a former Air Force investigator and author of “Muslim Mafia,” told Examiner.com that he “infiltrated” a Muslim conference held in Detroit earlier this month. While at the conference, he reportedly spoke to a representative of a group known as Muslim Advocates, who said the organization is working “closely” with social media sites like Facebook and Twitter to close down accounts of users critical of Islam.

“They are asking these groups to close the accounts of anyone who is critical of Islam,” he said. “This is considered serious hate speech and should not be allowed on the Internet.”

According to Gaubatz, the representative also said that “anyone critical of Islam and sharia law are haters.” Ditto for those who oppose either the construction or expansion of a mosque in the United States.

“We are experts with deep experience in the courtroom and powerful connections in Congress and the White House,” Gaubatz recalled being told by the Muslim Advocates representative.

“This should be of no surprise to anyone,” Gaubatz said.

Gaubatz also said the conference, which was attended by representatives and leaders from several groups, should have been named the “U.S. Constitution and the 1st Amendment are for MB terrorists and not for American Patriots.” For four days, he said, he stayed at the same hotel as leaders from over a dozen groups that support the Muslim Brotherhood.

He reportedly met and spoke with executives from the Islamic Society of North America and the North American Islamic Trust.

“I was informed that NAIT owned several hundred million dollars of property in America, and has the funding from 400 plus Islamic Centers in America,” he added.

But Gaubatz’ report of collusion between these groups and social media sites like Facebook and Twitter present a clear danger to the fundamental right of free speech and Americans’ ability to freely express themselves online. As we have reported multiple times, Muslim activists have called for global blasphemy bans and an end to free speech in the United States, despite the clear language of the First Amendment.

Last Wednesday, we reported that one page critical of Islam — “Islam Exposed” — was yanked by Facebook after administrators received death threats. Facebook later restored the page, saying it was yanked in error.

On Wednesday, a post at the page advising visitors to avoid hateful speech was removed by Facebook for allegedly violating the site’s community standards. Facebook did not explain why the post was pulled and one administrator received a 30-day ban.

But as we have reported, Facebook routinely turns a blind eye to threats from users with Muslim-sounding names. Last August, for example, Facebook told a conservative female they could not confirm direct threats she received violated their community standards. One threat reported to Facebook was quite specific: “We will kill you.”

Ironically, Facebook has said it supports free speech and reviews all complaints equally.

We contacted both Facebook and Muslim Advocates to verify Gaubatz’ claim and received no reply as of this writing.

Update: A few hours after this article was published, Facebook falsely flagged the link as “unsafe” in what appears to be a bid to keep it from being circulated. We have reached out to Facebook, but have not received a response.

Update #2: Muslim Advocates spokesperson Fatima Khan responded with an email claiming we misquoted their representative, even though we did not. The statement relayed to us was Gaubatz’s recollection, not a direct quote from MA or any of their representatives. We specifically asked Khan about the quote, and about allegations the group is working to shut down social media accounts of those critical of Islam. Khan never responded. The article was flagged by Facebook after our contact with Khan. More on the incident can be seen here.

US State Department Promotes a Muslim Cleric That Backed a Fatwa on ‘..Murdering American Soldiers..’

Abdallah Bin Bayyah.

by, Adam Kredo | The Washington Free Beacon

The State Department’s Counter Terrorism (CT) Bureau promoted on Friday a controversial Muslim scholar whose organization has reportedly backed Hamas and endorsed a fatwa authorizing the murder of U.S. soldiers in Iraq.

The CT bureau on Friday tweeted out a link to the official website of Sheikh Abdallah Bin Bayyah, the vice president of the International Union of Muslim Scholars (IUMS), a controversial organization founded by a Muslim Brotherhood leader “who has called for the death of Jews and Americans and himself is banned from visiting the U.S.,” according to Fox News.

Bin Bayyah is reported to have been one of several clerics who endorsed a 2004 fatwa that endorsed resistance against Americans fighting in Iraq, PJ Media reported in 2013, when Bin Bayyah met with Obama’s National Security Council staff at the White House.

The CT Bureau tweet linked to a press release on Bin Bayyah’s site condemning the kidnapping of hundreds of Nigerian girls by the Boko Haram group.

However, Bin Bayyah himself has been known to back controversial causes.

Bin Bayyah has “urged the U.N. to criminalize blasphemy,” according to reports, and spoke “out in favor of Hamas,” the terror group that rules over the West Bank.

The cleric also issued a fatwa in 2009  “barring ‘all forms of normalization’ with Israel,” according to Fox.

The 2004 fatwa on Iraq stated that “resisting occupation troops” is a “duty” for all Muslims, according to reports.

Terrorism analyst Patrick Poole said that the State Department must more carefully choose the Muslim leaders it promotes.

“This administration is continuing to push extremist clerics like Bin Bayyah as part of a fantasy foreign policy that somehow they are somehow a counter to al Qaeda,” Poole said. “But in Bin Bayyah’s case, it was his organization that issued the fatwa allowing for the killing of U.S. soldiers in Iraq and said it was a duty for Muslims all over the world to support the Iraqi ‘resistance’ against the United States that gave religious justification for al Qaeda’s terrorism.

“And [Bin Bayyah] said nothing as his pal Qaradawi issued fatwas authorizing the use of suicide bombings and publicly defended terrorist groups like Hamas, Hezbollah and Palestinian Islamic Jihad,” Poole added. “If anything, clerics like Bin Bayyah and [Yusuf] Qaradawi have actively aided al Qaeda.”

The Obama administration came under fire in June 2013 for holding a meeting with Bin Bayyah at the White House.

The cleric was confirmed to have met with members of Obama’s National Security Council at the White House to discuss poverty and global health efforts, according to multiple reports at the time.

Yusuf Qaradawi, the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood leader who founded the IUMS—where Bin Bayyah served as vice president—has been called a “theologian of terror” by the Anti-Defamation League (ADL).

Bin Bayyah himself has advocated for the criminalization of “the denigration of religious symbols,” which critics call an infringement on free speech.

A State Department spokesman did not respond to a request for comment on the issue.

This Muslim Terrorist SOB was on the “Terrorist Watch List” which banned him entry into the United States, at the same time that Barack al-Husseini Obama invited him into the White House to meet with the US National Security Council:
