An aside. But a rather important one:
‘Europe is lost’: Barcelona’s chief rabbi urges Jews to move to Israel
“I tell my congregants: Don’t think we’re here for good, and I encourage them to buy property in Israel,” Rabbi Meir Bar-Hen said in an interview with Jewish news agency JTA.
“This place is lost. Don’t repeat the mistake of Algerian Jews, of Venezuelan Jews. Better [get out] early than later.
Weaponized migration to Europe looks to be good for Israel’s expansionist agenda, no?
Barbara Spectre anyone?
If Europe is "lost" why is that, exactly?
An informative comment
The man wielding a knife and wearing a mock suicide belt was named as Artur Gadzhiev, 19, originally from Dagestan, in the Caucasus.Dagestan. That brings to mind the Boston bombing suspects: The Dagestan connection
"the two brothers implicated in the deadly Boston Marathon bombing, lived briefly in Dagestan before coming to the United States"Back to Siberia:
Law enforcement officials were checking whether the incident was a terrorism related attack.
The man appeared to strike out randomly at passers-by in central Surgut.
All the victims are alive, but two are reported to be in a grave condition.
Gadzhiev's name was published by Mash, a media seen as close to law enforcement sources.
He was from Khasavyurt town, and it was unclear why he was in Surgut.
He was reported to be a supporter of Zenit St Petersburg and Manchester United football clubs.
The same media earlier published the name Bobichel Abdurakhmanov, 23, with links to Central Asia as being the identity of the dead knifeman.
There did not appear to be a man of this name in Surgut.
Gadzhiev's father Lametulakh was reported to be registered with police as an extremist and supporter of radical Islamic religion.
Some sources said there were more victims, up to 15, with reports of incidents in several parts of the city.
There were also unconfirmed claims that the attacker had accomplices.
The attack came at around 11.20am on Saturday in the city, in western Siberia's Khanty-Mansi autonomous region, some 2,100 km east of Moscow.
Initially there was information that there were two attackers and one of them fled.
Later officials said the attacker was alone.
'A man was running along the main streets stabbing people", TASS reported.
The Investigative Committee said the attacker was 'liquidated'.
