NARRAGANSETT — School officials have assembled a team of faculty, parents and religious leaders to address students about tolerance after anti-Semitic graffiti appeared in a boys bathroom at the high school earlier this month.

 

In addition to the graffiti, Superintendent Katherine E. Sipala cited other incidents involving a small group of students perpetrating hateful speech and teasing other students about their ethnicity in the school. She said the behavior is unacceptable and the district is addressing the issue full force.

“When I heard about the graffiti, I was so sad about it,” Sipala said. “But we’re not going to get frozen by it. We’re taking this seriously and want parents to know that we’re going to deal with it appropriately.”

Principal Daniel F. Warner sent a letter to parents on Tuesday explaining what happened. He said the graffiti was “hurtful” and “disturbing” and “goes against everything we are trying to accomplish here at Narragansett High School.”

A team lead by school psychologist Ruth Anderson, consisting of parents, faculty and community members – including local clergy – will meet with students and is in the planning stages for a broader response in the coming days. The group was formed immediately after the graffiti incident.

Sipala said that clergy members will help the district bring in speakers to address the issue of intolerance and help staff and students deal with their feelings if they have been discriminated against.

In terms of the students who have been teasing other students, Sipala said it is a small group of younger students, consisting mostly of freshmen. Those students have been spoken to on an individual basis and their parents have been involved.

As far as the student who wrote the graffiti, Sipala said that the police have been notified and there is an ongoing investigation.

But the broader issue isn’t finding and punishing the student responsible for the graffiti, Sipala said. It’s to use the situation as a learning experience and opportunity to improve the overall school atmosphere.

In addition, school officials are asking parents to lead by example. In his letter, Warner wrote, “A heartfelt conversation centered on being accepting of one another would speak volumes to your children.”

The situation also gives Warner hope that students who have witnessed discriminatory behavior will feel empowered to speak up, or will realize that their silence can be interpreted as condoning such behavior.

“By doing nothing,” Warner said, “they give tacit approval that these events are within the boundaries of acceptable high school behavior. They are not.”

Anti-Semitic Incidents Decline for Fourth Straight Year

New York, NY, June 1, 2009 … The number of anti-Semitic incidents in the United States declined for the fourth consecutive year, according to newly issued statistics from the Anti-Defamation League (ADL). The League’s annual Audit of Anti-Semitic Incidents, issued today, counted a total of 1,352 incidents of vandalism, harassment and physical assaults against Jewish individuals, property and community institutions in 2008, representing a 7 percent decline from the 1,460 incidents reported in 2007.

The Audit identified 37 physical assaults on Jewish individuals, 702 incidences of anti-Semitic vandalism, and 613 cases of harassment in 2008.  They included acts against high-profile Jewish community institutions and communal properties, such as the repeated vandalism of the San Francisco Holocaust Memorial, and the desecration of dozens of graves at a Jewish cemetery in Chicago with swastikas and hate group symbols.

Of the total 1,352 incidents, 42 percent occurred at homes, private buildings or businesses, and 23 percent took place in educational establishments, including public and private schools and universities, according to the Audit.

 “It is encouraging that the number of anti-Semitic incidents continues to decline, but the sheer volume of incidents reported and the violent nature of many of the physical assaults is a reminder that we cannot be complacent,” said Abraham H. Foxman, ADL National Director.  “Had law enforcement not thwarted the alleged terrorist bombing plot against synagogues in Riverdale, New York, it would have been a horrific anti-Semitic attack.”

The 2008 Audit comprises data from 44 states and the District of Columbia, including official crime statistics as well as information provided to ADL’s regional offices by victims, law enforcement officers and community leaders.  The Audit identifies criminal acts, such as vandalism, violence and threats of violence, as well as non-criminal incidents of harassment and intimidation, including hate propaganda, leafleting and verbal slurs.

“The Audit is one barometer of anti-Semitism,” said Mr. Foxman.  “The explosive expansion of the Internet and social-networking sites such as Facebook and YouTube has become a new frontier for anti-Semitism, and so anti-Jewish expression is hard to quantify in this environment.  It’s here today, gone tomorrow, and back the next day.

“In 2008, the financial crisis brought about an increase in rhetoric targeting Jews, with letters in newspapers and on Web sites blaming Jews for the misdeeds of a select few, with Bernard Madoff topping the list,” added Mr. Foxman.  “Hate groups and anti-Semites used the global economic downturn to breathe new life into old myths of greedy and money-hungry American Jews, and these took on a life of their own on the Internet and in the real world.”

Anti-Semitic incidents last peaked in 2004, when the League reported 1,821 incidents in the U.S.

For reporting purposes, the Audit divides anti-Semitic incidents into three categories: Anti-Semitic Assaults, involving violence against Jewish individuals or those thought to be Jewish; Vandalism, such as property damage, cemetery desecration or anti-Semitic graffiti; and Harassment, including threats, slurs and activity by anti-Semitic hate groups:

• Assaults: A total of 37 anti-Semitic assaults were reported in 2008.  The assaults included attacks with baseball bats and other weapons, punching and rock-throwing.  In some cases, victims were hospitalized.

• Vandalism:  There were 702 cases of anti-Semitic vandalism reported in 2008, up from 612 cases in 2007. 

• Harassment: A total of 613 incidents of anti-Semitic harassment were reported in 2008.  (In 2007, the categories of assaults and harassment were combined for reporting purposes, for a total of 745 incidents.  In 2008, the combined total of assaults and harassment was 650).

“The bad news is Jews continue to be the number one religion group targeted for hate,” said Glen S. Lewy, ADL National Chair.  “The good news is there’s a greater awareness within local Jewish communities that the potential for anti-Semitic activity should always be a concern. Communities have responded with heightened security and by partnering with law enforcement in an attempt to mitigate the threat.”

Continuing a longtime trend, the states with the highest totals were those with large Jewish populations.  The top four states accounted for 59 percent of the anti-Semitic incidents recorded by ADL. 

The states with the highest totals were New Jersey (238, down from 247); California (226, up from 186); New York (207, down from 351); Florida (122, down from 127); Pennsylvania (97, down from 99); Massachusetts (52, down from 95); and Connecticut (38, down from 49).

Neo-Nazis

Some nit-wit going by “John Adams” has some odd crush on me. Everyday I keep getting spam comments from him. He claims I am an FBI informer. Actually, no I’m not. I have never been used by the FBI nor have I been paid by them. I have however, been a witness in their behalf against Neo-Nazis who commit illegal acts. “John Adams” is the typical Neo-Nazi coward. He spends his time online being a coward. I wish these Nazis would use their real names and face me in person instead of hiding behind a computer. Then again, like most, he has no life. What should I expect?

Warning to those who threaten me

All comments that contain threats will be given to the FBI. I could care less who likes me or who hates me. My blog was not created to make friends. I deal with Jewish History, such as lies against them and ect. I know many of the lies about the Jewish people  because I was guilty of much of it myself. My goal is to educate people about the Jewish people from the “Gentile” point of view.

As a Christian, I owe much of what I believe and follow to the Jewish people. If that upsets people, then so be it. I have already turned in threats in the past. And for those who don’t  know, action has been taken against certain people. And trust me, I don’t mind turning in more people. If people go to jail, so be it. I could care less. You want to make threats, deal with the FBI. I won’t tolerate them.

My letter to the Courier-Journal – the ungodly newspaper of Louisville, KY

Like always, the Courier-Journal posted a letter from some ignorant Bible quoter. This writer claimed that Jesus never said marriage was only between a man and woman. Not sure where he got that lie from. This is an attack on both Jews and Christians who love our Lord Yahweh.  Below is my letter in bold.

I laughed out loud after reading the letter by the writer who made the claim that Jesus never spoke out against gay marriage. What Bible does he read from? I own 12 translations and quickly came across Matthew 19:4. Jesus clearly states marriage is between a man and a woman. I would pay money if this writer could find one verse in the Bible where Jesus says homosexual marriage is accepted.

 

Of course what should I expect from a person who supports gay marriage? I shouldn’t be shocked he is ignorant in regards to Scripture. Of course Jesus stated that those who follow Him can understand Him. This writer, along with homosexuals, can’t (John 8:47).

 

Hopefully the Courier-Journal (I know they won’t) will actually do research before posting such ignorant comments which are anti-Christian. The writer should also read what the prophet Hosea (4:10) once said and take his advice, “My people are destroyed from lack of knowledge.”

Israel Holds War Games

 JERUSALEM  —  Israel’s air force held a large-scale exercise simulating war on several fronts with enemies that include Iran, Israeli defense officials said Friday.

The practice this week involved Israel’s entire air arm and was meant to prepare for an all-out war, including missile attacks aimed at Israeli cities, the officials said. It lasted four days, ending Thursday.

Israel periodically conducts such exercises. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because the details of the exercise were not made public.

The military said it was part of its annual training program, using the word “routine” twice in a brief statement sent to reporters.

But it comes at a time of increasing friction surrounding Iran’s nuclear program, which Israel believes is aimed at producing a nuclear weapon it sees as an existential threat.

Israel has said it prefers to block the Iranian threat through diplomacy, but will not rule out a military strike.

The military said the exercise included both regular army personnel and reservists, releasing no further information. Israel plans a nationwide exercise next month simulating missile attacks aimed at civilians.

Randy Gray, who is more than likely a closet homosexual, it still crying in Midland Michigan. He was kicked out of office. He is being taken to court and will lose. Here is the funny videos he’s been making on Youtube.
For those who don’t know, Gray is a KKK members who stalks me and harasses me online. In the past he has photo shop postings of mine to make it appear I am homosexual. In my personal opinion this is due to his own gay fetish and to the fact he hides his true sexuality which is, homosexuality. Continue reading
