British Politician Suspended for ‘Zionists Caused Holocaust’ Claims

A small, rightist British party suspended one of its local representatives over reports she posted antisemitic comments online.

Anna-Marie Crampton of the U.K. Independence Party in East Sussex was dropped as a candidate in Thursday’s election for the council of the town of Crowborough south of London because of comments on Jews made on her website, the BBC reported Thursday.

The website contained claims that Jews deliberately caused World War II and sacrificed their own people in the gas chambers to promote Zionism. She has denied writing the remarks, and said her account had been hacked.

Crampton’s Twitter contained a message saying she was not antisemitic and that she had been “trolled.”

But Nigel Farage, the leader of the UKIP party which clinched three percent of the vote in the 2010 general elections, said: “From this moment she does not have the endorsement of our party.”

The article on Crampton’s website read: “The Second World Wide War was engineered by the Zionist jews and financed by the banksters.”

    If she really said this, she should be expelled from any party that wants to be considered sane. What a stupid, cruel, anti-semitic remark. Sadly, beliefs like this are becoming more and more common. Why? What is the source of this garbage?

    Factually Britian and the USA abetted the nazis with the murder of the Jews in the camps. Britian blockaded safe haven to the Jewish homeland of Israel and together with the USA allies refused to a simple bomb of the railroad tracks not only to the camps but same was also used to move arms to the front angain the allies which shows where their priorties were and still are.

    I wouldn't be surprised if this latest "Zionist Conspiracy" Story, wasn't "fabricated" by the fiercely Anti-Zionist: Boycott/Divest/Sanction (BDS) Movement. It sounds a lot like the "chatter" I receive over the internet on my Facebook News-Feed! After accusing Israel of being a: Racist/Ethnic-Cleansing/Genocidal/Apartheid State that is "Occupying" Palestine, Deliberately starving it's People, & Bulldozing their Homes in order to "Expand Israeli Settlements" (You can throw-in: "Murdering Babies"; & they Post photos of "Dead Arab Children" 2 foment even "More Arab/Muslim Hate")… these "Beelzebub, Devilish, Satanic" (BDS) so-called "Peaceniks", who only want 2 "Save the Poor Palestinians"! But they never tell U their "HIDDEN-Agenda": most of these BDS "Peaceniks" R Co-opting the "Genuine Peace Movement" in their own "Selfish-interests". Most of them are Extreme-Leftwing Communists, Anarchists, & Pacifists, who want 2 "Bankrupt" America & Israel 2 "Overthrow Capitalism"! (Don't confuse them with the "Occupy Wall St." people who I "Support", & are only trying to "Reform" Waste/Fraud/Abuse of "Corporatism", restore Jobs, Income-equity, & strengthen the "Social Safety Net" from the "Vulture Capitalists" who R hiding their assets abroad (Swiss Bank Acounts, Cayman Islands, etc.) & R laying off American Workers, 2 invest their Capital in "Cheap Labor" abroad; there's a HUGE distinction between "Overthrowing" & merely "Reforming" Monopoly-Capitalism!) Anyway this BDS-Crowd's claiming: America & Saudi Arabia & the Muslim-Brotherhood, all "acted in collusion" 2 finance Hamas, 2 overthrow Arafat & the PLO (now PA) in order that Israel could do all the "Bad Things" 2 the Palestinians, I mentioned-above! Imagine a "Conspiracy Theory" that BIZARRE of America/Saudi/Brotherhood "Conspirators" (who they call: "Zionist Axis of Evil") 2 "Enslave & Murder all of the Poor-Palestinian Refugees, on it's Borders, all for the "Rich Capitalist Americans, Saudi's & Israeli's"; & where the Muslim-Brotherhood comes in- I'm really "confused about"!) So, if this Article about "Jewish-Zionists", Plotting with "Nazi's", during the Second World War seems "Bizarre"… check out Internet 2 find out what "Peaceniks" R Saying "NOW"!

    Anti Semites Are Having a Field Day.

    The shenanigans going on with the Holocaust Claims Conference and the daily reports in various newspapers is reprehensible. If I were not a child of Holocaust survivors and Jewish I would truly develop anti Semitic feelings and be jealous with hatred of the Jewish people. Why? Jews have been hated throughout history because non Jews believe we control the financial world and find every possible method to steal money from others.. I am sixty five years old and was born in a DP camp.. My parents, survivors of Auschwitz and Buchenwald died when I was relatively young. Except for a cousin, their entire families perished in the Holocaust and all their property including land and businesses was taken from them. Any elderly Holocaust survivor who is in need of food, medicine or financial assistance which Germany just made available should receive the additional funding through the Holocaust Claims Conference.

    Due to the mishandling and theft involved with the Holocaust Claims Conference the world is regarding the entire Jewish population as thieves. Is this the legacy we want after many of us lost most of our families to the Nazis?

    While I realize Holocaust survivors will say that the money given by Germany belongs to them, I can suggest other venues where this money would help the children, grandchildren and future generations of those who suffered in the Holocaust. There certainly are many Holocaust survivors who financially did well after the war. I am sure they would also like to see funding from the Holocaust Claims conference used for the Jewish education of their children and future generations. How many Rabbinical Theological schools offer courses in Holocaust history or education? This is the way to preserve the memory of the Holocaust and those who died. Day schools are in desperate need of financial assistance and synagogues are having financial problems. Many young Jewish families, especially Religious families are struggling to keep kosher, send their children to Yeshivas, support synagogues and purchase homes in religious neighborhoods.

    Are we going to allow the same leadership of the Holocaust Claims Conference to misappropriate and mismanage funds to the point where over fifty million dollars was stolen? It is time for new leadership. Unless others join me in speaking out, ten years from now we will be reading about more theft and misuse of funds while most of the Holocaust will have died.
