France train shooting: Passengers recall drama

22.08.2015 Three American men are being hailed as heroes for overpowering a heavily-armed gunman on a train in northern France. The incident happened on the high-speed Thalys service near Arras. A 26-year-old Moroccan man was arrested at Arras station. One of the Americans said they took an AK-47 assault rifle and a handgun from the attacker as they saw him walk down the aisle of the train. They then put him in a chokehold until he was unconscious. Two of the American men who overpowered the gunman, Spencer Stone and Alek Skarlatos, are members of the Air Force and the National Guard respectively. They were travelling on the train from Amsterdam to Paris on Friday evening with a childhood friend, Anthony Sadler, who also helped restrain the attacker. "Spencer got to the guy first and grabbed the guy by the neck," Mr Skarlatos told Sky News. "I grabbed the handgun, got that away from the guy and threw it.  Then I grabbed the AK-47, which was at his feet, and started muzzle-bumping him in the head with it. "Everybody just started beating the guy while Spencer held the chokehold until he went unconscious." When he checked the AK-47, Mr Skarlotos said it had jammed and would not have been able to fire. The cartridge for the handgun had also been dropped, he said. French authorities said three people were injured, two of them seriously - one with a gunshot wound, the other a knife wound. Chris Norman, a British man living in France, was also hurt while trying to subdue the attacker. "I came in at the end of it all and helped get him under control," he said at a news conference in Arras. "The guy pulled out a cutter and started cutting Spencer - he cut behind his neck and nearly cut his thumb off." Another man, who has not been identified, suffered severe cuts to his neck. Spencer Stone went to help him despite his own injuries. Mr Stone remains in hospital. "I'm really proud of my friend that he just reacted so quickly and so bravely," Anthony Sadler said. "He was really the first one over there. Even after being injured himself, he went to go help the other man who was bleeding also. Without his help, he would have died. "That man was bleeding from his neck profusely." Social worker Christina Coons from New York was one of the 554 people on board. She told BBC Radio 5 Live she ducked under her seat when she heard shots. She said: "None of these men were in uniform. They were just regular passengers, this afternoon, who stepped up to the plate as soon as they saw what was happening." The passengers included French actor Jean-Hugues Anglade, the star of Betty Blue and Nikita, who was lightly wounded breaking glass to sound the alarm. The American men and Mr Norman were awarded medals for bravery by authorities in Arras. US President Barack Obama was among those to praise those who took action. "The president expressed his profound gratitude for the courage and quick thinking of several passengers, including US service members, who selflessly subdued the attacker," the White House said in a statement. "It is clear that their heroic actions may have prevented a far worse tragedy." French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said the passengers were "particularly courageous and showed great bravery in very difficult circumstances", adding: "Without their composure we could have been confronted with a terrible incident." Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel called the incident a "terrorist attack". French media said the arrested man was known to the intelligence services but he has so far refused to talk to police in Arras. AFP and El Pais newspaper said he used to live in Spain until last year, when he moved to France. They reported that he was known to intelligence agencies. He is now being questioned by anti-terror investigators in Paris. Images shared on social media appeared to show him being restrained on the station platform in Arras. France has been on edge since the attack on the Charlie Hebdo magazine and a Jewish supermarket in Paris in January, which left 17 people dead. And in June a man said to be inspired by the Islamic State group beheaded his boss and tried to blow up a gas plant in southern France.

Héros du Thalys - «Peu d'hommes auraient eu ce courage»

 23.08.2015 Héros du Thalys - «Peu d'hommes auraient eu ce courage» Depuis vendredi soir, quatre hommes sont devenus de vrais «héros». C'est grâce à ces trois Américains, Anthony Sadler, Alek Skarlatos, Spencer Stone, et à ce Britannique de 62 ans, Chris Norman, que l'attentat dans le Thalys reliant Amsterdam à Paris n'a fait aucune victime. Du président Obama, au premier ministre britannique David Cameron, en passant par la classe politique française entière, tous ont salué le courage, la réactivité de ces hommes. Grâce à leur intervention rapide, le suspect, armé d'une kalachnikov et de nombreuses munitions, a pu être stoppé net avant qu'il ne puisse commettre un carnage à bord du train. Sur des images filmées au téléphone portable à l'intérieur du train, on peut voir l'assaillant, un jeune homme mince, portant un pantalon clair et torse nu, plaqué au sol sur le ventre, les mains attachées dans le dos. Une kalachnikov est posée contre un siège et du sang est visible sur une vitre du wagon.  «C'est une chance pour tous les passagers que ces hommes qui sont des marines, étaient en vacances dans ce train. Ils ont évité le pire», souligne Rémi, un voyageur arrivé en Gare du Nord ce samedi matin, après être resté bloqué la veille au soir à Arras. Comme lui, de nombreux anonymes croisés sur les quais ne tarissent pas d'éloges. «Peu d'hommes auraient eu le cran de faire ce qu'ils ont fait», rebondit une mère de famille qui attend son train pour Lille. «Sans eux, je n'ose pas imaginer ce qu'il se serait passé».  Le président François Hollande, lui, a annoncé qu'il recevra les héros du Thalys à l'Elysée «dans les prochains jours».

7 Tage unter Juden (Reportage)

 17.01.2015 Datteln, Zimt und Kiddusch-Wein kommen zusammen in eine Küchenmaschine. Es duftet nach einer fremden Welt in der jüdischen Gemeinde zu Oldenburg. "Jede Zutat, jedes Gericht hat hier eine Bedeutung", erzählt Oshra Levi. Sie kocht für die Pessach-Feiertage. Pessach ist das Fest, das an den Auszug der versklavten Israeliten aus Ägypten erinnert. Tradition wird großgeschrieben Oshra kommt aus Israel und hat die jüdischen Rezepte von ihrer Mutter erlernt. In ihrer Heimat hat sie als Kind in der Schule auch das erste Mal von Konzentrationslagern in Deutschland gehört. Diese Brutalität, die dort herrschte, konnte sie sich kaum vorstellen. "Für viele Leute ist das immer noch das Land, in dem ein Massenmord stattgefunden hat", sagt sie. Trotzdem ist Oshra mit 20 nach Deutschland gekommen und geblieben. Nun kocht sie die Familienrezepte für Pessach in der Gemeinde. In sieben Tagen erfahren Nikolas Müller und Benjamin Arcioli, wie die 3.000 Jahre alte jüdische Geschichte bis heute als Tradition gelebt wird. Sie wollen wissen, wie es sich in der jüdischen Gemeinde zu Oldenburg lebt. Und: Welches Bild haben die Oldenburger Juden von Deutschland, ihrem Zuhause? Der Film zeigt hebräischen Gesang, koscheres Essen und Gespräche über den Juden namens Jesus.

Ephraim Kishon

From Wikipedia

 Ephraim Kishon (help·info) (Hebrew: אפרים קישון‎, August 23, 1924 – January 29, 2005) was an Israeli author, dramatist,screenwriter, and Oscar-nominated film director. He was one of the most widely read contemporary satirists in the world.[ Ephraim Kishon was born on August 23, 1924 by the name of Ferenc Hoffmann into a middle-class Jewish family in Budapest, Hungary. In his youth he did not know Hebrew nor Yiddish. His father worked as a bank manager and his mother was a former secretary. Kishon also had a sister who was a writer. His writing talent became evident in his youth. In 1940 he won his first prize for writing a novel for high school students. Due to the racial laws applied in Hungary during World War II, he was not allowed to continue his studies at the university and therefore he began to study jewelry making in 1942.,,,, Kishon initially lived in the "Sha'ar Ha'Aliyah" transit camp near Haifa, and soon afterwards moved to Kibbutz Kfar Hahoresh, in which he worked as a male nurse while learning the Hebrew language during his free time with the help of his neighbor Joseph Bilitzer. During this period he wrote several humorous lists for the Hungarian newspaper "Új Kelet". Afterwards Kishon moved to a housing project. He studied Hebrew at the Ulpan "Etzion" in Jerusalem, and soon became proficient in the language. Nevertheless, his heavy Hungarian accent accompanied him throughout his life.
