House Passes Bill Protecting Circumcision, Ritual Slaughter As Religious Freedoms:
There have been increasing calls in recent years in northern European countries for an end to circumcision and ritual slaughter, spurred in part by anti-Muslim hostility, U.S. Government and European Jewish officials have said. Ref. Source 9s.
Law enforcement officials believe that many of the recent threatening calls to Jewish community centers originated overseas.
The threats will be among the topics in President Donald Trump's speech to Congress tonight, an administration official told CNN. Ref. CNN.
I can understand many people calling and threatening to harm the Jewish people because they dislike them. To know they are coming from over seas does not surprise me. I hope that the Jewish people understand that most Americans are with them and will not persecute them.
Missouri man arrested in connection with wave of threats targeting Jewish community centers
Juan Thompson, 31, is accused of making bomb threats against Jewish institutions in New York and across the country as part of a bizarre cyberstalking scheme to retaliate against a former girlfriend, federal prosecutors allege. "Thompson's alleged pattern of harassment not only involved the defamation of his female victim, but his threats intimidated an entire community,'' FBI Assistant Director William Sweeney Jr., said Friday. Ref. USAToday.
It's amazing what people will de for the dumbest of reasons. Targeting any group because of religion, ethnicity, race, or any similar reason is just plain wrong.
Yes I agree. This man did these things as a way to get back at his ex girlfriend. I feel that something was not quite right with him and she was right to get away. To persecute one religion over another is wrong in so many ways. I say let each person decide for themselves and do not judge others for then you yourself will be judged.
There is actually something on the news about this right now. This guy just had something wrong with him and picked a group and then tried to pin it on his ex. She is definitely better off without him.
