AUSTRIA: Passenger beaten for complaining about Holocaust denial,” by Cnaan Liphshiz, JTA, May 27, 2021 (thanks to the Geller Report):

It didn’t go well: One of the passengers punched him in the face.

The incident happened on May 21 near Amstetten, a city located 70 miles east of Vienna, the Heute newspaper reported Wednesday.

The alleged assailant, whom witnesses said looked Middle Eastern, was speaking about Israel to a fellow passenger, who also looked Middle Eastern and was wearing a kaffiyeh, an Arab headdress that in Europe is also called a “Palestinian shawl” and is commonly worn at pro-Palestinian events.

According to the Heute report, the conversation, which was replete with antisemitic statements, veered into Holocaust denial, which is illegal in Austria. The 32-year-old victim, who was not named, asked the other men to stop making antisemitic remarks but was ignored.

Before exiting the train, one of the passengers hit the victim three times in the face, wounding his lip. Police are looking for the two men, who left the train after the assault….

(AUSTRIA) JUST IN: Raids on suspected Muslim Brotherhood & Hamas members in Austria last year led to the discovery of an “enemies list” of opponents of political Islam, according to people targeted by the groups #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Apr.25: Austrian police carried out dozens of raids in an anti-terrorism operation last November, which led to 30 arrests. Operation Luxor, took place in the early morning with searches at more than 60 addresses allegedly linked to Islamist extremists in four different regions.

Austria: Police find ‘enemies list’ in raids on members of Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas: ‘Austrian police find ‘enemies list’ in raids targeting Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas,” by Tim Stickings, The National, April 22, 2021 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

The Styria region prosecutors’ office said in a statement it was “carrying out investigations against more than 70 suspects and against several associations which are suspected of belonging to and supporting the terrorist Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas organisations”

It came days after four people were killed when a gunman who had previously been convicted of trying to join ISIS opened fire in Vienna, although the two investigations were not linked.

Kawther Salam, a Palestinian journalist living in Vienna, told eXXpress that authorities had shown her a list of names, including hers, which was reportedly found in the files of one of the suspects targeted in the raids.

“I have nothing against Islam. But to the Muslim Brotherhood I am apparently an enemy,” she said.

“This list is making its way around. What are these people trying to achieve with it? What is their plan for the future?”

She said that while some of her journalism criticised alleged corruption among Palestinian authorities, most of her work was about Austria.

But, she said, she received a veiled threat after clashing with the organisers of a pro-Gaza demonstration in Vienna in 2009.

On a separate occasion, she disagreed with a university professor who was researching Islamophobia.

She suspected that those two episodes were the reasons for her inclusion on the list.

The list is said to include about 40 names, with photographs of the people mentioned.

Raids follow calls for purge of Islamic extremism
Amer Albayati, an Iraqi-born journalist in Vienna, said his name was also on the list.

He said he was surprised to be on it, because he had been on friendly terms with the owner of the list and attended the same mosque for a time.

“Many well-known people are on the list, respected people, including journalists and a former MP, but also completely ordinary people,” he said.

Albayati is a terrorism expert and a co-founder of a group called the Liberal Muslims’ Initiative in Austria….

VIENNA: ‘ AUSTRIAN POLICE ARREST COUPLE IN CONNECTION WITH SUSPICION OF TERRORISM IN GERMANY ‘

Austrian police have arrested a couple alleged to have trained with radical Islamic fighters in Syria and sought in Germany on suspicion of terrorism.

Law enforcement officials say a 20 year-old man and his 33-year old partner were detained early Thursday on a train headed for Germany shortly before it reached the border.

An 8-year old child traveling with them has been handed over to childcare authorities.

State prosecutor spokesman Markus Kitz says an extradition hearing is set for next week.

The authorities agreed on an amendment to the Abzeichengesetz (Badge Law), which bans the display of symbols, flags and uniforms of several organizations, primarily Nazis and extreme far-right race hate groups.

According to a spokesman for Interior Minister Johanna Mikl-Leitner, a final agreement is not yet confirmed, but will be ready next week, when the authorities agree on sentencing options for courts.

AUSTRIA: ‘ Hospitals to Suspend Circumcisions Motivated by Religious Custom ‘

#AceWorldNews – AUSTRIA (Vorarlberg) – September 13 – The governor of Vorarlberg has told hospitals run by Austria’s westernmost province to suspend circumcisions motivated by religious custom, citing a German regional court ruling that the practice amounted to causing criminal bodily harm.

Markus Wallner says he sees the German decision last month, arising from the case of a child whose circumcision led to medical complications, as “precedence-setting judgement.”

He told provincial hospitals Tuesday not to perform the procedure except for health reasons until the legal situation is clarified in Austria.

The decision does not affect religiously motivated circumcisions performed outside hospitals run by the Vorarlberg government, and comes a week after two Swiss hospitals announced that they would temporarily stop performing circumcisions.

On Thursday, the Zurich children’s hospital announced that it was temporarily halting circumcision operations. “We are in the process of evaluating the legal and ethical stance in Switzerland,” said Marco Stuecheli, a spokesman for the hospital. 

“There can be complicated cases where the mother of a child wants a circumcision but the father is opposed to it,” he added.

` Social Networks Becoming New Stamping Ground for Recruitment to Al-Qaeda-Linked Groups Across Europe ‘

#AceNewsServices – AUSTRIA – April 21 – Austrian authorities say they believe two teenage girls that vanished from their homes in Vienna earlier in April may have been tricked into going to Syria to join foreign-backed insurgents and terrorists in the country in the name of “holy war.” (Alalam)

The first hints of where Samra Kesinovic, 16, and Sabina Selimovic, 15, went were a number of social media posts claiming the girls had gone to fight a “holy war.”

The development comes as al-Qaeda-linked Takfiri propagandists and local preachers across Europe have become increasingly active in social networking site and a number of community mosques, deceiving Muslim youth and young converts into joining terrorist gangs in the Muslim nation of Syria and kill other Muslims in the name of a “holy struggle.”

The girl’s parents told the Dnevni Avaz (Daily Voice), a newspaper in Bosnia and Herzegovina, that the pair had left behind letters in which they said they were going to Syria to fight “for Islam.”

New photos on Facebook pages of the two female teenagers show them holding Kalashnikov automatic rifles, and in some cases they are surrounded by armed men.

In their latest post, they said they were going to get married so they could become “holy warriors,” according to the Daily Mail.

` German Police have arrested a former `Nazi Medic ‘ serving in `Auschwitz ‘ on suspicion of ` aiding and abetting Murder ‘

#AceWorldNews – German police have arrested a former Nazi medic on suspicion of “multiple counts” of aiding and abetting murder when he was serving as a medic in the Auschwitz death camp, according to the local prosecutors’ office.

A 93-year-old suspect was arrested on Monday at his home near the town of Neubrandenburg, in the federal state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern in northern Germany.

A doctor examined the man after his arrest and determined that the suspect “was in good enough health to be held in custody while authorities investigate further,” according to Stefan Urbanek, spokesman from the prosecutors’ office in Schwerin, the state capital.

The prosecutor refused to reveal the pensioner’s identity due to German privacy rules.

The man is now being held in pre-trial detention.

A former member of the SS (Schutzstaffel), a major paramilitary organization under the Nazis from 1925 to 1945, the accused allegedly assisted in massacres of prisoners transported from Germany, Austria, France, Italy, the Netherlands and Slovenia to the Auschwitz -Birkenau camp in September 1944.
