Muslim Krystallnacht Chicago 2008: Reader David’s Synagogue (and 4 Others!) Attacked (Obviously by Muslims)

By Debbie Schlussel
I’ve repeatedly warned about this. It’s not just the Muslims overseas. It’s the Muslims in America. They are no different, no less extreme, no more “moderate” than Muslims anywhere else.
Recently, I told you about a Molotov cocktail thrown at a Chicago synagogue and destruction at a Lubavitch synagogue in North Carolina. Now, reader David writes about how, Saturday–the Jewish Sabbath (also called “Shabbos” or “Shabbat”), he walked to synagogue on the way to a special celebration he and his family planned. But they arrived to yellow tape around their vandalized synagogue, complete with anti-Semitic slogans:

I don’t know what happen in other cities, but let me tell you what happened in Chicago early this Shabbos morning.
My father in law passed away a little over a year ago. His name was Morton Pliskin and he was the Chazan [DS: cantor] of a Traditional Synagogue named Lincolnwood Jewish Congregation in Lincolnwood Illinois (a suburb of Chicago, near Skokie).


“Religion of Peace” Vandalizes Lincolnwood Synagogue Near Chicago

With “Death to Israel; Free Palestine” Graffiti, Broken Windows

To commemerate the long years of service my father in had to the synagogue, my family dedicated the chair he used to sit in and sponsored the kiddush [DS: a Jewish reception blessing wine (and usually featuring food)].
When we walked to synagogue this morning, we saw yellow crime scene tape around the front steps. On the wall near the door was painted “Death to Israel long live Palestine“. Also, the glass on the front doors was taped. It seems that bricks were used to smash the windows. We are not certain, but we believe an there were plans to enter the synagogue and to destroy everything inside.
There is a couple that lives in the synagogue. In return for a free place to live (I am sure they receive a salary and other expenses but I don’t know the entire agreement), they serve as caretakers for the building and help set up for special events. The husband is also kind enough that whenever it snows he takes care of making sure my Mother-in-Law’s sidewalks and driveway are clean.
The wife heard a noise and woke up. She saw the two perpetrators. They immediately ran away. Unfortunately she cannot identify them because these “heroes of Islam” were wearing ski masks.
The police told us other (I believe 4 but I do not remember) Synagogues in Chicago were also hit.
Something struck me in synagogue today when I was thinking about what happened. Something that myself and I am sure everyone else takes for granted. I was wondering how many mosques in Chicago (or anywhere else) were hit last night.
David Makowsky

Of course, David is being facetious with that last comment. We Jews–and Christians–don’t attack their mosques. We put the “civilized” in civilization. They take it away and replace it with their own special Greater Barbaria they’ve put in place around the world.
More (thanks to reader Eu Wei for the tip):

Vandals spray-painted the words “Death to Israel” on two synagogues and a Jewish school early Saturday in three separate incidents police say could be linked and are being investigated as hate crimes.
In each case, the vandals – at times donning masks – used orange-colored paint, also shattering glass windows with bricks and rocks at two of the buildings.

That Was Then . . .


This Is Now . . .

A witness and security cameras identified the perpetrators as two men.
Moshe Perlstein, rabbi at Lubavitch Mesivta of Chicago, said cameras captured video of the men damaging his rabbinical school at 2756 W. Morse starting at around 4:40 a.m. The footage shows one man spray-painting the side of the building while the other ran around to the front and threw rocks at the front door, breaking a glass window, he said. The video has been turned over to police.
Similar graffiti was found at Anshe Motele Congregation, 6526 N. California, rabbi Alan Abramson said.
Lincolnwood police said vandals also scrawled “Death to Israel” and “Free Palestine” on the outside walls of Lincolnwood Jewish Congregation, 7117 N. Crawford. Mitchell Sandler, past president of the congregation, said they threw at least two bricks at the front doors, damaging four windows.
Lincolnwood Police Lt. Mark Brines said police were notified at 6:10 a.m. that a caretaker in the building heard a brick crash through a window at the temple. The caretaker saw “two unknown males running from the scene,” Brines said.
Because all three buildings were used by orthodox Jews, Sandler said it appeared the men were targeting more devout Jews.
“This was a cowardly act in the middle of the night,” Sandler said. “Obviously there is dismay because of what’s been happening in the Middle East.”
Local Jewish leaders were alarmed by what they see as a “rash” of incidents targeting Jews.
“It’s disturbing,” said Jay Tcath, senior vice president of the Chicago Jewish Federation.
The incidents come a little more than a week after Ida Crown Jewish Academy, at 2828 W. Pratt, received a mailed bomb threat that also made reference to other Chicago-area Jewish institutions and day schools, said Jay Tcath, senior vice president of the Chicago Jewish Federation.

My sister went to and is a graduate of Ida Crown Jewish Academy, so this hits close to home. What also irks me is the phony Jay Tcath. Jay Tcath is part of the problem. He was bought off by Islamic-owned, terrorism-supporting Caribou Coffee (which boycotts Israel and is anti-Semitic), after they donated thousands to his organization and told Jews to go patronize this bloody coffee chain. Note that he doesn’t chastise the perpetrators of these attacks: Muslims. It’s quite clear that no Samoans or Wiccans are spending their late Friday nights doing this and risking losing their freedoms. It’s obvious who did this.

And police said they are investigating as a hate crime a Dec. 29 incident in which a man hurled a Molotov cocktail at Temple Sholom of Chicago, 3480 N. Lake Shore Dr., after making “derogatory comments” to a passerby.
The FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force has been notified, police said.
No arrests have been made.

Don’t look for Famous But Incompetent’s do-nothing Joint Terrorism Task Force to do anything. It’s like hiring Arthur Andersen and Inspector Clouseau to do your investigation.
Like I said, we need not look at Europe. Islam’s violence is here. Barbarians inside the gate.
We see the new SS, and instead of a swastika and stormtrooper boots, they wear a crescent on their sleeve.
Pamela Geller/Atlas Shrugs has more pics of the vandalism.
By the way, I blame the federal government and the unelected “leadership” of the Jewish Community for helping this Muslim vandalism along the way. Especially post 9-11, the feds empowered extremist Muslims and, for example, have yet to prosecute Muslim hate crimes against Jews, like this set of Holocaust-denial Muslim rape, torture, and death threats against me by Dearbornistan Heights, Michigan Muslim Lola Elzein.
The Jewish Federations and Jewish Community Relations Councils, of which Jay Tcath is a big part, constantly pander to these extremist Muslims and won’t denounce them. They didn’t do a damned thing about the death threats against me and continued to applaud the “moderate” Islamic community around us. In the 1940s, they’d have been doing the same with the German American Bund.
In Detroit, David Gad-Harf a/k/a “Abu Gad-Harf” as head of the Jewish Community Council, now with a New Jersey Jewish Federation, worked with Muslims to make immigration laws more lenient toward Muslims. Now, we are reaping the rewards of that absurdity.

Debbie, it’s a given that Muslims will attack us anytime Israel unloads. I suppose if the Jews of Chicago or anywhere else ever stood up for themselves, the synagogue desecrations might not be so routine. I also suppose the Jews here are more comfortable being victims and complaining after the fact. G-d bless the Israelis for standing up for themselves.

What do you expect from the population of the land that bred the Obama crowd? Check out the Skolnick reports sometime. Irish Roman Catholic politicians have NEVER been a friend to the chosen racial Jews despite what they profess. Who sits at the top of the pyramid? Not a Jewish banker, I can guarantee you that much for sure. The only solution to the Palestine issue is a one state solution. Let the pope pay for the relocation of every Palestinian. Send them to any Religion of Peace country in the Middle East and see if they would like life better under strict Sharia law rather than Israeli democracy.

I wonder when the Leftist government there in Chicago, the ones that relentlessly want charge Christians and those that don’t see it their way with “hate crimes”, will be hunting down the Islamic garbage that committed these hate crimes? That is what they are. There no question about that.
Oh, that’s right. Those laws are only for Christians and Jews. How silly of me?

Ironeagle on January 11, 2009 at 12:54 pm

Do you see one mention of “Islam” in any of the incidents Debbie has profiled in the MSM? Clue me in. You can only read about it here or on Pamela Geller’s Atlas Shrugs site. The point is where the men are gutless to do the right thing, its Jewish women who have to step in to save the day. And Debbie’s biblical namesake, the prophetess Deborah was the first.

NormanF on January 11, 2009 at 2:48 pm

And one big reason for the inaction of Chicago’s Jewish ‘leadership’ is that they don’t want to embarrass Daley or Hussein.

c f on January 11, 2009 at 3:13 pm

I am not Jewish but have had many Jewish friends and associates. Islam is the problem and further government is the problem by it’s inaction where it should be and it’s actions where it has no business.

These attacks hit close to home. I was Bar Mitzvahed at Temple Sholom. I used to live in Skokie, less than one mile from the most recent attacks. I went to high school with Lt. Mark Brines. My mom still lives right down the street from the temple in Lincolnwood. Many survivors from the Holocaust settled in Skokie. There are still some still living there.
It’s no coincidence Skokie was chosen for vandalizim. Chicago nazis came to march. I was in high school the first time. There were many survivors there. They had tears in there eyes. They said this is how it started. A few crazys protected by the authorities spreading there ideas for hate. Eventually the numbers grow and the momentum grows. I showed up with rocks and a sling shot to shoot them. There were so many cops, I couldn’t get a clean shot without hitting a cop. I didn’t do anything. They got away with it, got on the news, made the paper, and upset many people. Skokie had a population of about 100,000 people of with possibly half was Jewish, half Christian. Everyone got along and still does. It’s a peaceful place to live and a great place to grow up.
I studied the holocaust quite a bit. A common question is WHY. Why did they let it happen. How come they walked to the trains-gas chambers? Why didn’t they fight back?
This is a war. We are in a war we did not start, a war we did not want. We have to fight this war with the support and guidence by our country. Freedom of speach does not mean freedom of hate-speach and freedom to incite violence. That crosses the line of a crimminal act. I wish the Jewish lawyers at the ACLU agreed.
To vandalize in the cover of darkness wearing ski masks is a cowardly act. Look for it to be duplicated just like the church bombings. Lets catch these criminals and bring them to justice.

I fear that this is only going to get worse once Hussein occupies the White House. The mohammedans are already claiming he’s one of them (and by their law, he is), and he’s already expressed that his sympathies lay in their direction.
Fifty-two percent of voters were deluded (or hate-filled) enough to elect a corrupt, treasonous, likely non-citizen from the most anti-Semitic ethnic group in this country. May God forgive us for our idiocy in seating that fraud in the highest office in this land.

    Got it! Thanks a lot again for henilpg me out!

    Suevonne on May 25, 2014 at 5:29 pm

I see where you’re coming from, John the Baptist. While I will make common cause with you in defense of the Jewish People, I emphatically reject your idea that the popes and the Catholic Church are the root of modern evils, including the Holocaust; nor is the modern Catholic Church the enemy of Jews or Judaism (we still affirm a universal message and mission, to Jew and Gentile alike).
But, of course, I don’t expect to sway you in the least, or disabuse you of conspiratorial anti-Catholic canards. Wrong as I think you are, I accept your sincerity and good faith, provided that you rein in any gratuitous malice.

John C on January 11, 2009 at 5:42 pm

I don’t give a damn being PC on this issue. The Christian and Jewish men need to quickly grow a spine and exercise our 2nd Amendment rights and guard these buildings. NO ONE ELSE IS GOING TO DO IT FOR US!!!
Where have all of the men gone????? Government and law enforcement has no intentions of doing anything to stop these types of crimes from happening. We live in a completely upside down country!!!

newinnewark on January 11, 2009 at 5:43 pm

I’ve got an idea how the police can EASILY catch the scum. Stake out synagogues which haven’t yet been hit. Within a few days they’ll catch some scum. And they can throw the book at them for hate crimes.
That ought to throw liberals into a tizzy.

The ultimate shame and disgrace to all Palestinians…

ob3 on January 11, 2009 at 7:47 pm

Get ready for lots more of these mini-Kristallnachts, folks. Soon, regular beatings of Jews (and anyone who comes to their defense) in the streets; violent threats from the Imams in America, on TV and elsewhere, as B. Hussein tilts more and more toward Islam and castigates Israel, now that he’s firmly ensconsed in power for the next four years, at least; some sort of Reichstag fire scenario, where a “Jew” is captured with lighter fluid and matches, about to set fire to the Capitol, enabling Barry to claim absolute authority to stop the “Jewish terrorist attacks” on the country (gotta save those innocent, harmless Muslims from any danger, of course); soon enough, “re-education” camps for non-believers (well, just for the infidels; all the Jews must be exterminated as beyond hope of conversion or servitude, like the Christians).
Way to go, American Jews! You voted for this, now you’re gonna get it . . .

theendisnear on January 11, 2009 at 8:05 pm

I cannot believe that even the Chicago PD cannot stop this before it gets further out of control.
As someone else said, it is time for the good people to grow a spine and defend their god given rights. Although as I recall Chicago has some stupid gun control laws, it does not seem to do much to reduce crime. I am reminded of the words of “La Marseilles”:
“Arise children of the land
The day of glory has arrived
Against us tyranny’s
Bloody standard is raised
Listen to the sound in the fields
The howling of these fearsome soldiers
They are coming into our midst
To cut the throats of your sons and consorts
To arms citizens
Form your battalions
March, march
Let impure blood
Water our furrows”
Remember too, that it is far far better to have a gun and not need it than to need a gun and not have one. Be prepared. Stand firm and know that you are not standing alone.
I am a gentile, but I stand with Israel, the IDF and Jews in this battle for life and freedom.

Here was the new Koran of faith and war: turgid, verbose, shapeless, but pregnant with its message.
– Winston Churchill (equating Adolf Hiler’s “Mein Kampf” to it’s predecessor Mohammad’s Koran in his book the “The Gathering Storm”)

feralcat9 on January 11, 2009 at 8:35 pm

Imagine there’s no Islam
It’s hard but you can try
No suicide hijackers coming down at us
Above us only sky
Imagine all those people
Still alive today…
Imagine there’s no Islamic countries
It’s hard but you can try
No Mohammad for them to kill or die for
And no Imams too
Imagine all the Christians, Jews and Infidels
Living life without them…
You may say I’m a deamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday all dhimmis will join us
And the non-Islamic world will be as one
Imagine no Burkhas
I wonder if you can
No need for Medina or Meca
A brotherhood of non-Islamic woman and man
Imagine all the people
Living without Shariha…
You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday all dhimmis will join us
And the non-Islamic world will be as one

feralcat9 on January 11, 2009 at 8:38 pm

How awful-I really hope this does not get to be too common-this kind of hate breaks my heart

mindy1 on January 11, 2009 at 9:23 pm

You never hear of American Jews vandalizing or setting a mosque on fire, as a retaliation, do you?
Maybe it’s about freaking time.
Israel is doing it right now, no?
No, wait, most American Jews don’t want to be called “anti-Semitic” or “racists.”
And they are too sissy to fight back.
Let the police and FBI, a.k.a. the Muslims allies, defend the Jews!
And now that Hussein is planning to have intercourse with HAMAS, Hizbollah and the enemies of America, the Jews and the Gentiles are doomed, here and abroad.

Independent Conservative on January 12, 2009 at 8:44 am

My, my…there are more “moderate” muzlums in America than I thought there were.
But, then again, they’re just practicing what their phony prophet instructed them to do.

Thee_Bruno on January 12, 2009 at 10:07 am

i wish the Israelis would stop pussyfooting around.
Take all the land, knock that dome down, then one-way ticket the ‘refugees’ to any of the surrounding sandy islamic sh-thole countries.
A One State solution is the best bet.

live from dearbornistan on January 12, 2009 at 12:31 pm

Will never be reported by MSM because Orthodox Jews are not considered a minority. Liberal Jews being attacked would be front page news. Palestinians are the minority and will be coddled by MSM. All their attacks will be seen as a “reaction to oppressive Israel”, therefore the MSM won’t hold them accountable. However any response by Israel will be seen as wrong and oppressive by MSM. This same mentality is shown with illegal immigration. The illegals are the victims and anyone saying deportation or secure the border “must be hateful and oppressive”. The MSM is so sick in their own myopic beliefs.

californiascreaming on January 12, 2009 at 1:52 pm

live from dearbornistan:
You’re absolutely right. There already IS a “two state solution anyway, as Jordan is a de facto, and de jure, Palestinian Arab state, and has been since the British reconfigured Mandatory Palestine to create Transjordan, an area far more than twice the size of Israel, as a Judenrein territory, reserved for Arabs only. The original Mandatory Palestine incorporated the so-called West Bank and Gaza as a home for the Jews because of the continual Jewish presence there for over two millenia, and the clear and fully acknowledged (by all sane and educated people) ties – religious, historical, and cultural – to the land by the Jewish people. The Arabs, attacking Israel in a multi-front war intended to be a war of annihilation, succeeded in wresting the so-called West Bank as well as Gaza from the infant Israel, and held these areas until 1967. Israel offered to cede Gaza to Egypt in the 1970s but Egypt rejected the offer, rightly viewing the Gaza strip as a hotbed of trouble.
Israel should recognize for itself that it is under no obligation whatsoever to cede even one inch of land to implacably hostile, murderous Arab Muslims and their Arabic-speaking dhimmi Christian allies. An aggressive Arab coalition attacked Israel in 1967, Israel defended itself, and won territories, which it is now entitled to in perpetuity, and which are needed for its defense and for its growing population. It need not apologize, nor feel guilty. These territories were originally intended as part of the Jewish homeland, as originally approved by the League of Nations, and reaffirmed by the UN after World War II.
Israel, instead of feeding Gazans, providing medicine, issuing warnings before bombing buildings, and using rubber bullets to dispel rock-throwing, murderous thugs, should embark upon a scorched earth policy and not hold back, not continue its half-measures against HAMAS, which exists solely to annihilate Israel, and which was elected by the popular vote. Israel’s goal should be, unequivocally, HAMAS’s unconditional surrender, and then a retaking of the strip. Population transfer on a massive scale must then follow. The USA can help here by offering temporary financial aid to Jordan (my stomach turns as I write this, but this is reality) in order to effectuate the transfer of Gaza’s population. Israel, too, may offer temporary financial aid to Jordan, or to the Gazans themselves, to facilitate their resettlement. And the next step for Israel is to reclaim the West Bank for itself, and do the same as it did in Gaza. Sixty years of diplomacy have been tried, to no avail. It is time for not only Israel but also the rest of the civilized world (which appears to be shrinking rapidly, judging from the world’s reaction to Israel’s defensive actions in Gaza) to acknowledge that no “two state” solution is possible. Israel, to ensure (or at least maximize) its chances for survival must indeed do what you, dearbornistan, state so adamantly.

Indian Vedic contribution is a reservoir of Vibrant Information and Harmonious Creativity. May the Womb of Nature Embrace all with Tranquil Blessings from this day forward. Let this attract one’s attention affecting them Positively. It is a Sanctuary of the Self , a Creative Venue which serves as an Enduring Expression of Lightness, where a peaceful Atmosphere with Sunlight Flows and serene atmosphere prevail.

In the storm of life we struggle through myriads of stimuli of pressure, stress, and muti-problems that seek for a solution and answer. We are so suppressed by the routine of this every life style that most of us seem helpless. However, if we look closely to ancient techniques we shall discover the magnificent way to understand and realize the ones around us and mostly ourselves. If only we could stop for a moment and allow this to happen. May all beings be happy (Loka Samastha Sukhino Bhavanthu)

The ancient Hindu philosophy of keepiing mind and body for the well being, has entered the managerial, medical and judicial domain of the world. Today it has found its place as an alternative to the theory of modern management and also as a means to bring back the right path of peace and prosperity for the human beings. Let me bow to Indian Maharishi Veda Vysa with folded hands who helped in removing the impurities of the mind through his writings on Vedas, impurities of speech through his writings on puranas, and impurities of body through his writings on other sacred texts.

The Holy Gita is the essence of the Vedas, Upanishads. It is a universal scripture applicable to people of all temperaments and for all times. It is a book with sublime thoughts and practical instructions on Yoga, Devotion, Vedanta and Action. It is profound in thought and sublime in heights of vision. It brings peace and solace to souls that are afflicted by the three fires of mortal existence, namely, afflictions caused by one’s own body (disease etc), those caused by beings around one ( e.g. wild animals, snakes etc.), and those caused by the gods (natural disasters, earth-quakes, floods etc).
