Canada: Arabic newspaper praises jihad massacre at synagogue as a “qualitative attack”

From Jihad Watch

The Canadian Arabic newspaper, Al Forqan, based in Windsor, Ontario and “distributed in Canada and the United States described a terrorist attack against a synagogue in Jerusalem as a ‘qualitative attack’ carried out by ‘two heroes.’”

Six people were murdered in the jihad attack; the Palestinian Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) claimed responsibility.

Would a Jewish paper ever publish such a report if Muslims had been murdered in cold blood in a mosque? Of course not, but imagine the outcry if the same such despicable report were indeed published by a Jewish or Christian publication. But Jewish and Christian papers do not publish such hate and incitement. The bigotry of low expectations and the guilt for past wrongs continue to allow for a two-tier legal system, one that enables victimizers and denigrates victims and potential victims. A system that in fact ignores a stark breach of hate laws on one side (as we see in this case) and on the other, punishes people for calling out hate, discrimination, murder and intolerance of jihadists and Islamic supremacists.

Not long before Christmas, Al Forqan also published “hadith, accounts of sayings attributed directly to Muhammad, that speaks about Muslims killing Jews as part of the final Islamic fight to establish Sharia law and justice in the entire world.”

The founder, CEO and Editor-in-Chief of Al Forqan Newspaper‎ is Mohammed Khalifeh. He once “posted a video on his Facebook page accompanied with the following caption: ‘The grandsons of al-Mukhatr – a poem dedicated to the mujahideen of Gaza and Palestine. We ask Allah to help them, to plant their feet firmly. I hope you like it.’”

“Canadian Arabic Newspaper Called Terrorist Attack on Synagogue a ‘Qualitative Attack,’” by Jonathan Halevi, Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs, February 20, 2019:

An article on Al Forqan newspaper distributed in Canada and the United States described a terrorist attack against a synagogue in Jerusalem as a “qualitative attack” carried out by “two heroes.” Six were killed in the attack: five worshippers and a policeman.

The Palestinian Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) took responsibility for the attack.

According to its website,1 “Al Forqan is a daily online newspaper and a monthly printed newspaper issued by the Al Forqan Media Foundation, Editor and Managing Director Mohamad Hisham Khalifeh, and a group of administrators and highly qualified individuals.”

Al Forqan states:

An independent, political, and cultural newspaper, it does not follow any political party yet pursues a policy of truth and justice and includes sections on education, culture, sports, and society. Al Forqan is a contemporary newspaper, which deals with life affairs and includes topics of interest to all segments of society (Arab and Canadian writers, elite, doctors, professors, and professionals).

The opinions expressed in the articles published on this website are strictly those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the opinions of Al Forqan Newspaper, its publishers or employees.

In Issue 23, November – December 2014, Al Forqan published an unsigned article titled “The incidents in Al-Quds – is this the spark of a looming intifada?” Here is an excerpt from the article (originally in Arabic):3

In light of all this pressure by the occupation, a number of young [Palestinian] Jerusalemites carried out independent vehicular attacks and stabbing operations that caused the death and injury of a number of settlers and soldiers of the occupation. Yehuda Glick, the engineer of storming the Al-Aqsa [mosque], did not escape the bullets of the [Palestinian] Jerusalemites when he was the target of an assassination attempt. He was seriously injured but was saved from death. [The most important operation] was the qualitative attack carried out by two heroes in the Jewish synagogue in which five [six] Zionists were killed, in a natural response to the repeated crimes perpetrated by the Zionist entity against Al-Aqsa Mosque and the residents of Palestine and [the city of] Al-Quds [Jerusalem].

“The qualitative attack” mentioned in Al Forqan’s article refers to the terrorist attack that took place on November 18, 2014, in the Kehilat Bnei Torah in the Har Nof neighborhood in Jerusalem. Two terrorists armed with a handgun and cleavers stormed the synagogue, attacking the Jewish worshippers during the morning prayer. A police officer and five Jewish worshippers were killed in the attack….
