|Barcelona's chief rabbi Meir Bar-Hen told his congregation to move to Israel to flee terror|
Barcelona's chief rabbi has urged Jews to move to Israel after warning that Europe has been 'lost' because of the threat from radical Islam.
At least 14 people were killed and some 130 others injured when attackers ploughed into pedestrians on a promenade in the tourist area on Thursday evening.
ISIS has claimed responsibility for the Barcelona outrage and another attack in Cambrils yesterday, which resulted in one person dying and seven people being injured after five men wearing fake suicide belts drove an Audi A3 into crowds on the seafront.
Western Europe has been a regular target for jihadists over the last few years. And Barcelona's chief rabbi Meir Bar-Hen told his congregation to move to Israel to flee terror.
In an interview with Jewish news agency JTA, he said: 'I tell my congregants: Don't think we're here for good, and I encourage them to buy property in Israel'
'This place is lost. Don't repeat the mistake of Algerian Jews, of Venezuelan Jews. Better (get out) early than late. Europe is lost.'
The Federation of Jewish Communities of Spain did not to share Bar-Hen's pessimistic outlook. The organization issued a statement Thursday, saying: 'Spanish Jews trust the State Security Corps that work daily to prevent radical fanatics and Islamists from sowing chaos and pain in our cities.'
The group also urged politicians to 'deal intelligently and determinedly with the struggle against fanaticism and in favor of freedom and democracy.'
The terrorists had originally planned to drive three vans packed with explosives into iconic parts of Barcelona including the Sagrada Familia cathedral, it has been reported.
Had their butane-filled gas containers not accidentally detonated the night before the atrocities on Thursday, the 12-person terror cell would have used them to maximise deaths in the tourist hotspots of the Spanish city, local media suggest.
They intended to explode one van in Las Ramblas, a second by the world-famous Sagrada Familia cathedral and the last in the port area of the city, El Espanol has claimed.
The cathedral, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is one of the most visited attractions in Europe.
Architect Antonio Gaudi began construction in 1882 and, despite him dying in 1926, it is still officially incomplete.
In 2010 it was consecrated by Pope Benedict XVI as a minor basilica.
New Jersey Attorney General Christopher Porrino posted a $25,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of whoever vandalized a recently-erected eruv in Mahwah.
The mission of the Bias Crime Unit, within the New Jersey Division of Criminal Justice, is "the statewide coordination of efforts to eliminate crimes motivated by prejudice against others based on race, color, religion, sexual orientation, gender, disability or ethnicity," Porrino wrote.
Porrino's announcement came after Mahwah Mayor Bill Laforet offered a $1,000 reward that was matched by Teaneck Councilman Mark Schwartz and a fellow Teaneck resident (The total: $27,000).
"This is the second crime of this nature," Laforet told Daily Voice Saturday morning. "This sends a very strong message to anyone involved in this crime: We are not a community of hate, and hate has no home in Mahwah."
Last week, township Police Chief James Batelli announced that anyone caught vandalizing the PVC piping along utility poles would be prosecuted under state bias crime statutes.
The piping creates a religious enclosure, known as an eruv, for Hassidics attending temple services across the state line in Rockland County.
Damage was found earlier this month and last month, amid a backlash from residents.
A Monsey-based group has sued the township in federal court, contending that its members' civil rights were being violated by officials and residents who are trying to have the eruv removed.
Rockland Utilities said the work was done legally after the proper documentation was filed and approved.
ANY TIPS on the Mahwah eruv vandalism should be reported either by phone at 1-800-277-BIAS or online atwww.nj.gov/oag/bias .

A 2012 clip from the Judge Judy show features two parties who claim to own the same dog named Baby Boy.
Judge Judy decides that the best way to determine the real owner is to bring the white poodle into the courtroom and let him loose so that he can choose his companion.
The defendant is a woman who says she bought the dog off of the street.
The plaintiff argues that the dog actually belonged to him.
The defendant tries to argue that the dog doesn't belong to the other man because a vet told her that the dog is a different age than the man says.
When the dog is brought into the courtroom Judge Judy says: 'Madame, listen to me carefully: Put the dog down! Put the dog down'.
When the dog is placed on the floor he immediately sprints over to the plaintiff.
The defendant tries to justify it by saying that the dog 'does that with everyone' but the judge rules that Baby Boy has picked his parent.

"There Will Be Questions About Whether Barcelona Attack Was ‘Copycat’ of Charlottesville"
CNN comparing Barcelona attack to Charlottesville:
Liberal Anti-Trump CNN host Wolf Blitzer said Thursday there would be questions if the Barcelona terror attack involving a van crashing into a group of people was a "copycat" of what happened in Charlottesville, Va.
At least 13 people were killed and more than 50 were injured in Barcelona on Thursday when men rammed their van into a crowd of pedestrians at Las Ramblas, a popular tourism area in the city in northeastern Spain.
CNN national security correspondent Jim Sciutto said the "shared tactics" of the attackers in both instances was "alarming."
"In light of the uproar of the last couple days, five days apart you have a white supremacist in Charlottesville use a vehicle to kill, and here you have attackers at least following the modus operandi of terrorists using vehicles apparently to kill as well, and those shared tactics should be alarming," Sciutto said.
So now CNN believes that the Barcelona attacker learned this from the Charlottesville attacker.... how sick and crazy is that?
Arabs have been plowing vans into innocent people for years!
At least 13 people have been killed and dozens injured after a van in Barcelona ploughed into pedestrians in a busy tourist street.
More than two hours later a man was shot dead after bursting through a roadblock in a Ford Focus, injuring two police officers.
Terror police have arrested a man, believed to be Driss Oukabir, a Catalan resident in his late 20s of Moroccan origin.
Oukabir had earlier rented one of the vans used in the deadly attack 15 miles from where the atrocity was committed, Spanish police say.
The suspect is being treated 'as a terrorist', police in Barcelona have confirmed.
Horrifying pictures and video emerging from the scene show armed police and paramedics rushing around Las Ramblas, a busy promenade in the centre of the city, as victims lie hurt in the street.
It remains unclear how many attackers were involved in the incident, which is being treated by police as a terror attack.

He is a central figure in a network that allegedly takes young, pregnant Haredi women from Israel to the United States to give birth before giving the child away in an "adoption" arrangement for a fee.
