Daniel Greenfield has revealed that Izmir Koch is a Turkish Muslim, hailed along with his two brothers by the Dayton Daily News in 2014: “They’re paying taxes on the property and created jobs for the area right here.” But they also brought crime. Greenfield notes, among other things, that “Izmir had already been facing two counts of felonious assault, one involving a deadly weapon, from 2016.”
And it looks as if Izmir Koch also brought his Islamic Jew-hatred to Ohio. The Qur’an depicts the Jews as inveterately evil and bent on destroying the well-being of the Muslims. They are the strongest of all people in enmity toward the Muslims (5:82); they fabricate things and falsely ascribe them to Allah (2:79; 3:75, 3:181); they claim that Allah’s power is limited (5:64); they love to listen to lies (5:41); they disobey Allah and never observe his commands (5:13). They are disputing and quarreling (2:247); hiding the truth and misleading people (3:78); staging rebellion against the prophets and rejecting their guidance (2:55); being hypocritical (2:14, 2:44); giving preference to their own interests over the teachings of Muhammad (2:87); wishing evil for people and trying to mislead them (2:109); feeling pain when others are happy or fortunate (3:120); being arrogant about their being Allah’s beloved people (5:18); devouring people’s wealth by subterfuge (4:161); slandering the true religion and being cursed by Allah (4:46); killing the prophets (2:61); being merciless and heartless (2:74); never keeping their promises or fulfilling their words (2:100); being unrestrained in committing sins (5:79); being cowardly (59:13-14); being miserly (4:53); being transformed into apes and pigs for breaking the Sabbath (2:63-65; 5:59-60; 7:166); and more. They are under Allah’s curse (9:30), and Muslims should wage war against them and subjugate them under Islamic hegemony (9:29).
Is Cincinnati diverse enough yet?
CINCINNATI — A Huber Heights man faces a federal charge for attacking a man he believed to be Jewish last year, the U.S. Attorney’s Office announced Wednesday.
Izmir Koch, 32, beat the victim outside a Greater Cincinnati restaurant Feb. 4, 2017, according to the indictment.
The victim stepped outside to smoke a cigarette and meet a friend. Koch yelled out asking if anyone was Jewish, the indictment says, and the victim responded he was.
Koch punched him in the head and continued to hit and kick him while he was on the ground, the indictment says. The victim suffered bruised ribs and a fractured eye socket.
As it turned out, the victim wasn’t even really Jewish, U.S. Attorney Benjamin Glassman said.
But because Koch believed he was, Glassman said, a federal grand jury indicted him on one count of committing a hate crime.
“It does not matter under the law whether the assailant is correct in thinking that the victim is Jewish or Christian or Muslim or any religion,” Glassman said. “If that’s the basis, if that’s the reason for the physical assault, that’s a federal crime.”
He declined to give details beyond the indictment because it’s a criminal case undergoing prosecution.
Koch was arrested Wednesday morning. If convicted, he could face up to 10 years in prison.
