These people want to kill us....

Jihadi tapes reveal ‘PB&J’ code in ‘culinary school’

The American who coordinates the Islamic State’s online propaganda efforts was caught on tape by the FBI in 2006 plotting “peanut butter-and-jelly sandwiches” from “culinary school” — code for terrorist attacks and training camps.
The phone and online conversations give a chilling look inside the head of a homegrown terrorist.
The CIA says at least 2,000 of the estimated 31,500 jihadists the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria has recruited are from America and other Western nations.
Ahmad Abousamra, the ISIS recruiter-propagandist who sits on the FBI’s most-wanted list, communicated with a cell of jihadists in the Boston area.
Knowing the feds were monitoring their phone and online conversations, they spoke in a strict coded language, including referring to terrorist training and attacks as cooking classes.
“They regularly used ‘Brian’ (and sometimes ‘Bob’) as a code for FBI agents,” one federal court document says. Iraq was never called Iraq but “Raafidayn” or “land of the two rivers.”
“P-town” was code for Pakistan, another key stop on the jihad circuit.
They justified the lies with an Islamic concept called “takiyya,” which allows the faithful to hide their beliefs and actions when dealing with “kufar” or non-Muslim authorities. From Arabic, it translates roughly to “expedient duplicity.”
Before fleeing the country in December 2006, as the FBI closed in on him, Abousamra traveled extensively to terrorist hot spots seeking training.
But he always lied to customs officials, saying he was traveling to study Arabic or serve as a translator in Iraq, according to his indictment.

Ahmad Abousamra
One of Abousamra’s confederates, Tarek Mehanna — who isserving 17 years in federal prison after being found guilty of translating material for al Qaeda in Iraq, the precursor to ISIS — was particularly thrilled that 9/11 ringleader Mohamed Atta was once in Boston.
In an online conversation recorded by federal agents, he speculated that maybe “we saw him at the ISB [Islamic Society of Boston] or something.”
The Post reported last week at least eight notorious extremist Muslims — including Abousamra and the Boston Marathon bombers — attended the same Cambridge, Mass., Islamic Society mosque.
Both Abousamra and his best pal Mehanna cheered the 9/11 attacks and idolized the hijackers as “heroes.”
Mehanna had some 30 photos of Ground Zero on his computer, including one in which he is shown grinning and making a “We’re No. 1” sign. Some were sent to Iraq jihadists.
In one communication, they laughed at the victims in the World Trade Center and prayed Allah would show “the sinners” in the towers no mercy in the afterlife. “May Allah’s curse be on those who died on Sept. 11,” it said.
They made tribute videos to the hijackers and distributed them on the Internet. In 2006, they discussed their desire to be the “media wing” for al Qaeda in Iraq.
Soon, they became adept at translating what they called “jihadeos” depicting grisly violence against US soldiers into English to help recruit jihadists in the West.

One video showed a soldier dragged on the ground and set on fire. “Texas BBQ is the way to go,” Mehanna said. They even expressed delight in seeing the “ribs and internal organs” of mutilated Americans, whom they called “uluj,” or dirty infidels.
He and Abousamra also translated the lessons of “39 Ways to Serve and Participate in Jihad” and posted it on a list serve called At-Tibyan Publications, where English-speaking Muslims praised al Qaeda. One of those lessons is to “assist the jihad on the Internet,” advising that “electronic jihad…is a blessed field.”
After they failed to obtain automatic weapons to murder mall shoppers and U.S. officials in Washington, their weapons became a keyboard and computer.
Authorities believe their translations were “very important and successful” in attracting English-speaking fighters to ISIS.

Abousamra’s computer skills are still being used for recruiting, as he produces the slick if ghastly videos of American beheadings and posts them on Twitter and Facebook.
While in Boston, Abousamra and his jihadist buddies also would gather at mosques and discuss “who it is halal [proper] to kill” under Islamic law.
“I hate this stupid kufr [sinful] land,” Abousamra said in a February 2006 communication. intercepted by the FBI. “I hate being surrounded by kaafirs.”
Two weeks after the FBI questioned Abousamra in December 2006, he departed Logan Airport for Syria, telling customs officials he was visiting his wife, even though he was divorced. He never returned.
Authorities suspect he’s producing hate propaganda from Aleppo, Syria.
Paul Sperry is a Hoover Institution media fellow and the author of “Infiltration: How Muslim Spies and Subversives Have Penetrated Washington.”

Here are excerpts of online and phone conversations intercepted by the FBI between Americans Tarek Mehanna, who is serving 17 years in prison for aiding al Qaeda, and Ahmad Abousamra, who fled the US and serves as ISIS’s propaganda chief.
While condemning a Muslim feminist reformer on June 12, 2006:
Mehanna: She needs to be raped . . . with a broomstick.
Abousamra: lol
On July 13, 2006:
Mehanna: Man . . . did you see the vid of the mutilated uluj [dirty infidel/US soldier]?
A-S [likely Abousamra’s screen name]: no
Mehanna: Man . . . it was . . . Texas BBQ sauce . . . all the way
A-S: lol
From FBI’s recording of cellphone conversation on Dec. 12, 2006. (“Culinary school” is a training camp; “PB&J” is jihad.)
Al Qaeda operative speaking overseas from training camp: Come — come with Ahmad [Abousamra] . . . come now though, now . . . Right now I’m in a culinary school, and I just make peanut butter and jelly.
Mehanna: Uh, right. Masha’Allah [Whatever Allah wills].

France arrests anti-Semite black power leader

France arrests anti-Semite black power leader

Paris (AFP) - Paris police have arrested a convicted anti-Semite and radical black power activist after he arrived in France to promote a new book, a police source told AFP Sunday.
Kemi Seba, head of the French branch of the New Black Panther Party, was detained Saturday after a public appearance at the Main d'Or theatre in the French capital, the source said.
A magistrate then ordered his incarceration on Sunday because Kemi Seba, whose real name is Stellio Capo Chichi, was wanted for having violated the terms of a 2009 suspended sentence for violence.
He has been living in Senegal and had told followers he would tour France to promote his recent book. The theatre where he had appeared is used by the controversial comedian known as Dieudonne, who has been repeatedly convicted of anti-Semitism.
Kemi Seba is no stranger to brushes with the law.
Two groups that he founded -- Tribu K and later Jeunesse Kemi Saba -- were dissolved by the French justice ministry for inciting "racist and anti-Semitic" ideology.
In October 2012 he was expelled from Switzerland for fear he would incite violence.

Illegals get Passports social security numbers on same day...

Passport and social security number in one day if you are illegal

I spent three hours yesterday at the Romanian Embassy trying to obtain a passport renewal for my 82-year-old mother who wants to travel to visit her sister and brother she has not seen since 1996. It may be her last trip.

Because her passport expired in 1998, it appears that it must be verified that she is still a Romanian citizen and that she has not given up her citizenship to another country without their knowledge, even though I provided them with her resident alien U.S. re-entry permit (a form of passport for legal immigrants) that also expired in late 90s, and her resident alien card.
The Romanians must check that she is a legal entity, that she exists, said the condescending clerk in the consular office, a Romanian citizen still, for the fee of $81 in cash.  How do they know that she has not sworn allegiance to another country in the interim?
After an alleged wait period of 60 days, she will be eligible for a new passport, providing that the right paperwork, filled out correctly according to bureaucratic speak, name and surname, her deceased parents, my deceased father, her life story, etc.  will be filed. I have no clue what the fee will be or how long that would take, hopefully her siblings will still be alive and Mom will be ambulatory and/or able to travel.
But that is not all. I must then proceed with the renewal of her U.S. re-entry permit, facing the legal immigration bureaucracy gauntlet of the United States, and I have no idea how long that would take, considering the backlog of 4 million legal immigrants who are awaiting patiently the resolution of their cases, and the priority that the flood of illegal aliens from Honduras, Guatemala, Mexico, and El Salvador are receiving.
If Mom was an illegal alien freshly arrived from Mexico, she would be getting her passport and visa on the same day, and from the Social Security office.

That is exactly what happened to a busload of Mexicans who arrived from Laredo in Memphis, Tennessee. According to the video posted by, an American citizen confronted some of the members of the group who spoke no English, had been in the U.S. one day, but already had Social Security numbers and new Mexican passports issued not by the Mexican Consulate but by the Social Security office in Memphis.
As the videographer says in his citizen video, “They should get these [passports] in Mexico. We need jobs, we have no money in our country, we are giving it all away, and look at this, our tax dollars hard at work, there’s your bus full of people, there’s the Social Security office, and they are giving passports away to illegals.
Chances are, after writing about this egregious issue and the concerned American citizen videographer, my Mom will never get travel papers from the United States. 
We have to stop the flood of illegal aliens into our country who claim bogus refugee status.  They are here for jobs because of bad economic conditions in their countries, and to receive welfare from the strapped American taxpayers. American businesses want illegals here for cheap labor, replacing American workers. We have our own severe economic problems in the United States and our middle class is struggling under the heavy burden of taxation, the loss of jobs, and the lack of job creation.

British jihadist medical student, 21, is pictured holding severed head while wearing her white doctor's jacket

British jihadist medical student, 21, is pictured holding severed head while wearing her white doctor's jacket 

  • Woman calling herself Mujahidah Bint Usama posted image on Twitter
  • Also wrote 'dream job, a terrorist doc' with smiley face and love hearts
  • Woman has also posted images of 9/11 attacks and mutilated soldiers 
  • Has been linked to all-female al-Khanssaa brigade based in Raqqa, Syria
A woman believed to be a British medical student who left the UK in order to join ISIS has posted an image on social media of herself holding a severed head.
The woman, who goes by the Twitter name of Mujahidah Bint Usama, claims to be a doctor for the terror group based in Raqqa, Syria.
In the image, which was used as her profile picture but has since been removed, she can be seen wearing a full burka and white lab coat while holding the head of a middle-aged man.
Scroll down for video
A British medical student calling herself Mujahidah Bint Usama, 21, posted this image online of her holding a severed head while two children look on (censored by MailOnline)
To the left of the image, two children can be seen standing beside her.
Her name reflects her jihadi convictions, with Mujahidah appearing to be the female version of mujahadid - meaning soldier of God.
Bint translates as 'child of', while Usama likely references Osama Bin Laden.
The gruesome image appears alongside the message 'Dream job, a terrorist doc,' followed by images of smiley faces and love hearts. 
According to the Sunday Telegraph, she is a 21-year-old British medical student.
Bint Usama, who has more than 800 followers on the social media site, has previously tweeted images of dead soldiers and the 9/11 terror attacks, alongside information on how to treat an injured knee and insomnia.
GCHQ and MI5 are known to be monitoring the accounts of around 60 female British jihadis who are believed to be in Raqqa in order to put together a picture of their activities.
The Government has previously stated that those who take part in atrocities such as beheadings and massacres will be prosecuted for war crimes and terror offences if they return to the UK.
In other online messages Bint Usama praised Anwar al-Awlaki, an extremist Yemeni preacher who became an Al-Quaeda spokesman and is believed to have inspired hundreds of Western jihadis.
She also praises women to push their husbands into fighting for Islam, and shared images of the execution of U.S. journalist Steven Sotloff, who was beheaded by ISIS earlier this month.
Sixty female British jihadis are now thought to be with ISIS, including Aqsa Mahmood, 20 (left), who is believed to be leading the al-Khanssaa brigade in Raqqa, and Zahra Halane, 16, who fled the UK with her twin sister
Bint Usama has been linked through her Twitter account to the al-Khanssaa brigade, an all-female group of jihadists who are charged with punishing 'un-Islamic' behaviour by women in Raqqa.
The name likely derives from Al-Khansa, a famous 7th-century female poet and contemporary of the Prophet Muhammad who converted to Islam and wrote elegies for his brothers, father and children after they were killed in battle. 
This week members of the brigade, which is thought to be led by British extremists, were reported to be acting as madams running brothels filled with captured Yazidi women, according to the Mirror. 
As many as 3,000 women and girls have been taken captive from the Yazidi tribe in Iraq as Isis militants continue their reign of terror across the region.
The think tank MEMRI (the Middle East Media Research Institution) released a report saying that IS had taken many Yazidi women to be sold and used as sex slaves.
The al-Khanssaa brigade is a female-only militia set up by the Islamic State in Raqqa, Syria, with a key figure believed to be Aqsa Mahmood, 20, of Glasgow, who fled to the country last year. 
Academics at King's College London have identified three other British females as members of the group - and say there are about 60 UK women who have gone to Syria on jihad.
Most of these women - including privately-educated Mahmood - are aged between 18 and 24, with al-Khanssaa said to be seeking out people engaging in Western culture in Raqqa.
It is believed that US hostages James Foley and Steven Sotloff were both beheaded in the desert near Raqqa - and therefore the British women in al-Khanssaa could know who killed them.
All of the women are thought to be based in the ISIS stronghold of Raqqa, Syria (pictured), where the female al-Khanssaa brigade has been established to punish un-Islamic behaviour among women

Crazy Things Progressives Believe

Crazy Things Progressives Believe

These days I live in a state of almost continual amazement, bedazzled by the things progressives believe. Earlier this week the New York Times had to print a correction which is probably the number one all time winner in a long line of their recent corrections: “Correction: September 8, 2014
An earlier version of a summary that appeared with this article misstated the former title of Dick Cheney. He was vice president, not president.”

Seriously, someone was hired to and does write for the major progressive publication in America who thought that Dick Cheney had been our president. And what we are led to believe is a legion of equally bright and sharp-eyed editors seem to have shared this mistaken belief.
Mark Landler of that same publication reported on the president’s brief remarks on ISIL (or ISIS, take your pick) this week, with this gem: “Unlike Mr. Bush in the Iraq war, Mr. Obama has sought to surround the United States with partners.”
There must be a new disease, Progressive Dementia, affecting the Old Gray Lady. Though they aren’t the only publication to be struck dumb by it
26 days after the September 11 attacks, Operation Enduring Freedom commenced in Afghanistan. The campaign to oust the Taliban from power, rid the region of al-Qaeda, and build a sustainable post-war Afghan government eventually involved 58 nations, many of them non-NATO members. In Iraq, 45 nations joined the United States in the March, 2003 mission to oust Saddam Hussein from control in Baghdad. By April, Angola and Ukraine had committed to joining the mission, raising the total number of coalition countries including the United States to 48.
Traditional American allies like Canada, France, and Germany objected to the Iraq War and refused to participate in initial combat operations. The United Nations, too, declined to sanction the campaign to change the regime in Iraq. This gave birth to the prevalent myth that the United States engaged in a unilateral operation in that Mesopotamian nation.
This is powerful lore, and it is enjoying new life as commentators and politicians and seek to defend Obama’s strained efforts to justify an indirect response to what his White House has determined are “terrorist” attacks on the United States.
So who are our allies in this latest Obama creation -- a sort of video game conflict where we have no boots on the ground and yet somehow know where the enemy is?  
After meetings at last week's NATO Summit, U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel spoke of a newly formed  "core coalition." President Barack Obama said it would take on ISIS. The nations are Australia, Britain, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, Poland and Turkey, in addition to the United States.
Turkey, a NATO member, is the only nation in that group located close to ISIS, which is also known as ISIL and calls itself the Islamic State. It has taken over parts of Iraq and Syria.
Two short days later Australia, Britain, and Germany aren’t so certain to be forming part of the war core any more.
By September 11 Turkey made clear it would not allow its airbases to be used to fight ISIS.  
Oddly it appears we are counting mostly on Iran’s help in Syria and Saudi Arabia’s in Iraq although I had thought they were major enemies of each other and certainly no reliable allies of ours. Pity the U.S. servicemen and women with the hokey-pokey commander-in-chief (we put the troops in, then we take the troops out). I expect our only ground intelligence will have to come from Moslem Brotherhood members at the core of this administration.
At the moment Sunnis supported by the Saudis and others are beheading Shiites and Shiites are beheading Sunnis, a situation David Goldman has likened to Europe’s Thirty Years’ War, a prelude to what he considers the death of Islam. 
That is what civilizational decline looks like in real time. The roots of the crisis were visible four years ago before the so-called Arab Spring beguiled the foreign policy wonks. Hundreds of thousands of displaced Syrian farmers already were living in tent camps around Syrian cities before the Syrian civil war began in April 2011. Israeli analysts knew this. In March 2011 Paul Rivlin of Tel Aviv University released a study of the collapse of Syrian agriculture, widely cited in Arab media but unmentioned in the English language press (except my essay on the topic). Most of what passes for political science treats peoples and politicians as if they were so many pieces on a fixed game board. This time the game board is shrinking and the pieces are falling off.
The Arab states are failed states, except for the few with enough hydrocarbons to subsidize every facet of economic life. Egypt lives on a $15 billion annual subsidy from the Gulf states and, if that persists, will remain stable if not quite prosperous. Syria is a ruin, along with large parts of Iraq. The lives of tens of millions of people were fragile before the fighting broke out (30% of Syrians lived on less than $1.60 a day), and now they are utterly ruined. The hordes of combatants displace more people, and these join the hordes, in a snowball effect. That’s what drove the Thirty Years’ War of 1618-1648, and that’s what’s driving the war in the Levant.
Obama also keeps insisting that ISIS/ISIL is not “Islamic”. Most think this defies belief, given that the first “I” in either acronym stands for “Islamic”, the slaughters are being carried out in Islam’s name and are perfectly consistent with the Koran and the long history of that religion. As are the demands that non-believers either convert, pay the Jizya tax, or be executed.
Just One Minute commenter “daddy” sees some upside to this rhetorical legerdemain:
A nice thing about ISIS/ISIL not being Islamic, is that when we capture their warriors we shouldn't have to feed them Halal Foods, nor should we have to be respectful of the Quran and not pee on it or flush it down the toilet, or have to put on Infidel proof plastic gloves to handle the damn thing.
If we did have to do all that stuff it'd be a tacit acknowledgement that they are Islamic, so now that the President has cleared that up for us and we know ISIS/ISIL is definitely not Islamic, we can dispense with all that.
Good to know that the future does not belong to th[ose] who slander the Prophet of Islam by claiming to be Islamic when they ain't.
And while we are on the subject of Democrat Party theologians and Middle East culture, how many remember that after Suha Arafat accused Israel of using poison gas, Hillary Clinton gave her a warm embrace and big kiss? Years later during a campaign swing she responded to criticism before a Jewish audience by appealing to her greater understanding of the Middle East: ''Some of you may or may have not been to the Middle East,'' Mrs. Clinton said, ''but a kiss is a handshake.”
To her husband oral sex isn’t sex and to Hillary a kiss to a person who just uttered a blood libel against Israel is just a handshake, and doubtless the same audience believed them both. Progressives are funny that way.
In contrast, when he appeared this week at a Conference of Middle Eastern Christians sponsored by top Clinton donor Lebanese-Nigerian billionaire Gilbert Chagoury (to bring attention to their persecution at the hands of Moslems) Senator Ted Cruz was booed for defending Israel. Without a teleprompter or notes he argued “If you will not stand with Israel and the Jews then I will not stand with you,” and walked off the stage.
He didn’t stick around to kiss any of the other speakers (it’s just like a handshake in the Middle East, remember). Speakers like Maronite Patriarch Cardinal Bechara Raï, “who has defended Hezbollah’s right to attack Israel and has called for a meeting with the Iranian-backed terrorist group’s leader Hassan Nasrallah.” or “Syriac Orthodox Church Patriarch Moran Mor Ignatius Aphrem II, who boasted on his official Facebook page last week about his Sept. 5 meeting with a “high level delegation from Hezbollah.” or “Antioch Church patriarch Gregory III Laham, who has blamed terrorist attacks against Iraqi Christians on a “Zionist conspiracy against Islam” aimed at making Muslims look bad. It is actually a conspiracy planned by Zionism and some Christians with Zionist orientations, and it aims at undermining and giving a bad image of Islam,” Laham said in 2010, according to the Daily Star.”
I’d like to think Cruz will be remembered for his courage and honesty: “Those who hate Israel hate America. Those who hate Jews hate Christians. If those in this room will not recognize that, then my heart weeps. If you hate the Jewish people you are not reflecting the teachings of Christ. And the very same people who persecute and murder Christians right now, who crucify Christians, who behead children, are the very same people who target Jews for their faith, for the same reason.”
But I wouldn’t be surprised if the New York Times will someday have to issue a correction along these lines: “We erred when we said Ted Cruz kissed Suha Arafat after she accused Israel of using poison gas. It was the wife of some other American political figure.”

Five Obama lies

5 lies that have shaped the Obama presidency

If past presidents are remembered for their signature achievements, Obama will be remembered for his signature lie: “If you like your health care plan blah, blah, blah.” The reader knows the rest. Although the most consequential of Obama’s lies — it got him reelected — it’s far from his only prevarication.
I’ve counted 75 significant lies since his campaign for president began, but that doesn’t begin to tally the casual fibs and hyperbole he spouts seemingly every day. Here are five that illustrate just how much Obama’s presidency is built on falsehoods.

5. “My father left my family when I was 2 years old.”

Obama made this claim in September 2009, when addressing the nation’s schoolkids. By then, the blogosphere knew that baby Obama had never spent a night under the same roof as his father, let alone two years.
For years, Obama and his advisors invested enormous political capital in what biographer David Remnick called Obama’s “signature appeal: the use of the details of his own life as a reflection of a kind of multicultural ideal.”
Remnick called Obama’s autobiography, “A mixture of verifiable fact, recollection, recreation, invention and artful shaping.” In other words, the truth is never good enough.

4. “The Fast and Furious program was a field-initiated program begun under the previous administration.”

Obama spun this fiction at a September 2012 Univision forum knowing it was false. In fact, the bizarre, deadly idea to let American guns “walk” into Mexico, where they were used by drug cartels to kill dozens, began in October 2009.
Three months earlier, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney had made the same bogus claim virtually word for word at a press conference and got shot down on national TV. “It began in fall 2009,” corrected White House correspondent Jake Tapper, then with ABC.
Carney refused to acknowledge he lied, and the president continued to lie weeks later. It’s all part of Obama’s ducking of responsibility — it’s always someone else’s fault.

3. “Not even a smidgen of corruption.”

Obama said this in response to Bill O’Reilly’s question about the IRS scandal: “You’re saying no corruption?”
If there were not even a “smidgen of corruption,” as Obama insisted, it is hard to understand what outraged him, or at least seemed to, when news of the IRS scandal first broke. “It’s inexcusable, and Americans are right to be angry about it, and I am angry about it,” Obama said in May 2013. Obama routinely expressed anger when some new scandal erupted on his watch — IRS, the failed ObamaCare website, the VA scandal, Fast and Furious — but never before had he shoved a scandal down the memory hole so quickly.
And how could Obama know there wasn’t a smidgen of corruption before the investigation was even over? Perhaps because the administration knew that any proof of that was gone with deleted e-mails and destroyed hard drives?

2. “We revealed to the American people exactly what we understood at the time.”

Modal Trigger

During that same Super Bowl Sunday interview, Obama made this claim in response to O’Reilly’s inquiry about the attack on the American consulate in Benghazi. Obama continued to dissemble: “The notion that we would hide the ball for political purposes when a week later we all said, in fact, there was a terrorist attack taking place and the day after I said it was an act of terror, that wouldn’t be a very good coverup.”
In fact, it was exactly a week after the attack, on Sept. 18, that Obama took his first questions about Benghazi. Bizarrely, he did so to David Letterman. “Here’s what happened,” Obama said.
“You had a video that was released by somebody who lives here, sort of a shadowy character who — who made an extremely offensive video directed at — at Mohammed and Islam.”
We know now that the administration knew this wasn’t true. Not a week later; not even the very night of the attacks.
On many levels, this was Obama’s most telling lie. He only deals with the world as he sees it, not as it is.

1. “Transparency and the rule of law will be the touchstones of this presidency.”

Modal Trigger

Obama told this whopper to his assembled staff on his first day in office. He promised it to the press. Instead, his administration refuses to hand over documents and Obama refuses to answer questions. As liberal constitutional scholar Jonathan Turley assessed the presidency, “Barack Obama is really the president Richard Nixon always wanted to be.”
What do these lies, just a sample of many, tell us? Obama never stopped “artfully shaping” his life.
The scary thing is he might actually believe these lies. He believes that posting a shot from his personal photographer online is “transparent.” That targeting conservative groups for audits isn’t corrupt. That everything that has gone wrong with his presidency is Bush’s fault.
Knowing that, how can we believe anything that he says?

German newspaper targeted by neo-Nazis

This week vandals sprayed the words "Jews" and the Nazi slogan "Sieg Heil" on the office windows of the Lausitzer Rundschau, a newspaper known for its coverage of far-right groups.
The week before four swastikas were daubed on other offices of the paper as well as "Jews, kill them" and "We'll get you all". There were similar incidents against the daily in 2012.
"These threats and acts of vandalism must be stopped and I am confident that the authorities will take the necessary precautions to ensure journalists' safety," the OSCE's media representative Dunja Mijatovic said.
"I welcome the condemnation of these attacks from the highest level of the German authorities in Brandenburg state and trust that these incidents will be swiftly and thoroughly investigated," she said in a statement.
The chief editor of the newspaper, Johannes Fischer, told the Berliner Zeitung that it would fight back with words which were "the most powerful weapons against spray cans and baseball bats".
Chancellor Angela Merkel will speak at a rally at the iconic Brandenburg Gate in Berlin against anti-Semitism on Sunday coinciding with a World Jewish Congress (WJC) meeting in the German capital.
