The Left has Learned Nothing from the Rabin Murder

Thursday, February 19th, 2015

The Left has learned nothing from the Rabin murder.

The media can stop this and calm the spirits.

Mr. Herzog – the writing is on the wall, and you can stop this and calm the spirits. You do not have the right to remain silent. When leftists, including members of your party, take part in violent events against my party, you may not remain silent.

Last night I arrived to a Bayit Yehudi campaign event in Haifa. My security detail would not let me enter the building. We argued for 30 minutes. My security team told me that there was danger to my life if I enter an event being held by my own party, because of radical leftist activists who had entered the hall.

When the event began, shouting and violence by the leftists began, and the security people asked to take me out of the hall. I refused, and soon afterwards refused for a second time.

Two days ago, leftist activists drew swastikas on a picture of me and they also gave me a Hitler mustache. After this incident it was decided to provide me with personal bodyguards. Earlier this week I was forbidden from entering an event at an academic institution in certain hours, ‘because there are Arabs at the same time and security-wise, you cannot be allowed into the event’.

That is not all. A Channel 10 journalist compared me to a fascist leader. A journalist in The Marker says that ‘I have the blood of five soldiers on my hands.’ In the Haaretz peace conference a few months ago, hundreds of leftists shouted ‘fascist’ and ‘murderer’ at me and force was even used against me. The organizers did not denounce the occurrence – after all, it was just Left violence against the Right.

We still haven’t mentioned Ayelet Shaked. Just the other day, someone wrote her before she was supposed to appear at a panel: ‘You had really better not come to the Gimnasia Harealit High School on Sunday – or I will carry out a Stalin-style purge against the Bayit Yehudi people’.

The violent leftists dress up as someone different each time. Sometimes they are activists for public housing, other times they are LBGT activists or organizations against the ‘occupation’. There is one small problem, these are political activists, and they include activists in Herzog’s Labor party.

All of their violent events are planned, documented, everything is written, and everything is saved.

I know, if a group of right wingers went to crash leftists’ events, and provoke violence there time after time, they probably would already be under administrative detention somewhere, and the media would probably be agitated.

I really can’t tell you that I have any expectations here.

Let me clear on this. I am a representative of the public.

Our public cares about this nation, opposes a Palestinian state and opposes releasing terrorists. I will not give up one centimeter of the Land of Israel.

This violence by leftists will not change my schedule by one inch. No one will silence us. No one.

‘Six Million More’ graffitied on Greek Jewish Cemetery

Thursday, December 25th, 2014

A Jewish cemetery in Larissa, Greece, was vandalized with hateful Nazi-esque graffiti on Dec. 23, 2014.

The graffiti included a call for “six million more,” and large swastikas.

The Jewish presence in Larissa dates back to the Roman era. According to the site Kosher Greece, there is currently one synagogue and this one Jewish cemetery in Larissa. The cemetery is kept locked, which may explain why the vandalism was restricted to the gate and outer wall of the cemetery.

Larissa is located in central Greece. Achilles, of Greek mythology, was claimed to live in Larissa.

FM: International Palestinian Incitement Sparked Attack on Israeli Embassy in Athens

Sunday, December 14th, 2014

An attack on the Israeli embassy in Athens on Friday has been blamed on the continuing anti-Israel incitement disseminated around the world by the Palestinian Authority.

Foreign Ministry officials said in a statement over the weekend, “The international community must condemn this continuing incitement that leads to these results.

“Israel thanks the Greek authorities for their close cooperation in investigating the incident,” a Foreign Ministry person said.

“We are hopeful that the perpetrators will be caught and punished.”

The embassy building was sprayed with gunfire at 3:20 am Friday, according to the AFP news agency. Two gunmen riding on the back of motorcycles had aimed at least 54 rounds from a Kalashnikov while passing the embassy, situated at the corner of a busy intersection in an affluent northern Athens suburb.

“There were two bursts of gunfire … they must have emptied an entire clip,” a gas station attendant told reporters in a television news report.

Kalashnikov assault rifles used in the attack were also used in a similar assault on the German ambassador’s residence last December, Greek police said. They told reporters late Friday a far-left group, the People’s Fighter Group, was likely responsible for the attack. Both American and German offices have been targeted by terrorists in previous attacks last year, and in 2007.

But government minister Vassilis Kikilias told the Ana news agency while inspecting the scene of the attack, “No one is going to affect the relations between Greece and Israel.” Government spokesperson Sophia Vultepsi added that Athens is taking “determined steps” against terror groups.

Israel and Greece have good relations, but the government has been very critical of Israeli policies towards the Palestinian Authority, and the neo-Nazi Golden Dawn party has gained popularity in the co

Hanukkah-Decorated Florida Home Vandalized with Swastika

Saturday, December 13th, 2014

A Jewish man found a swastika drawn on the gate to his home where he had put up decorations for Hanukkah.

David Cohen, 72 and a resident of North Fort Myers, Fla., told police that he found the swastika drawn onto his gate on Monday afternoon.

“I can’t even say how mad it makes me feel,” Cohen told news-press.com. “If it was a kid, I’d say they were very stupid. If it was an adult, they are very ignorant.”

The swastika was about four inches in length.

“I first saw it Monday when I came back from the North Fort Myers Community Center,” Cohen said.

Cohen reported the incident to the sheriff’s office and kept the fence open in order to avoid seeing the swastika and then painted over it.

He also placed a Menorah, dreidel and a Star of David near and around his lawn, which so far has been not vandalized.

 

 

 

 

 

When is a Swastika not a Swastika?

Tuesday, December 9th, 2014

Walgreens announced Monday that is removing all rolls of wrapping paper from its shelves nationwide after a woman from the Northridge community of Los Angeles complained Sunday about the swastikas in the design.

“I couldn’t believe my eyes, I had no idea what to do,” Cheryl Shapiro, the distressed shopper told L.A.’s NBC News affiliate. “I came home and spoke to my rabbi. He couldn’t believe it.”

Shapiro’s experience brings up a larger issue: How close to a swastika should something look to be considered offensive?

The wrapping paper is only the latest in a series of swastika products spotted on the market in recent years. In October, Sears apologized profusely for selling a ring with a swastika on it in its “men’s punk rock style” jewelry collection. In 2013, a clothing line called “Spiritual Punx” began putting colorful swastikas, which might also be seen as donuts, on clothing, stickers and accessories.

In 2007, Zara was caught selling a handbag that featured four green swastikas next to an array of flowers.

The swastika dates back thousands of years, well before Hitler’s rise to power. Before the late 19th century, the symbol was primarily associated with the cultures of Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism, in which it represented good luck or well-being. By the start of the 20th century, the swastika could be seen throughout Europe, not just in Germany. Today it is still seen on temples in places like India and Indonesia.

In any modern Western context, the swastika is inextricably associated with Nazi Germany and the Holocaust.

However, is the geometry of the Walgreens wrapping paper in the same category as the Sears “punk rock” ring? After all, the hooked cross, while iconic, is a simple enough design to accidentally replicate if one is drawing enough lines and right angles.

Presumably, Walgreen’s now will be extra careful in scrutinizing its products to assure they do not offend.

Fashion and Perfume Tycoon Chanel Exposed as Having Been Nazi Spy

Thursday, December 4th, 2014

A French television documentary has dug up World War II documents proving that fashion icon Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel spied on behalf of the Nazi regime’s Germany’s secret military intelligence organization, the Abwehr.

The documents from France’s Defense Ministry archives show that Chanel was known by the Germans as agent F-7124 and was given the code name of Westminster, a reference to the Duke of Westminster with whom she had a romantic affair in the 1920s, only one of her escapades.

“Chanel’s love affairs with high-ranking Nazis, including senior Gestapo officer of Baron Hans Gunther von Dincklage, have been widely known for years. But this is the first time a French state broadcaster has admitted that she went so far as to spy for the occupiers,” France 24 reported.

During the Nazi occupation of France, Chanel moved into the hotel that the Luftwaffe used as its headquarters.

She also tried to use her influence to gain access to the perfume business that had been owned by Jews, who she did not know had sold it to non-Jews in an anticipation of Nazi laws forbidding Jews from owning businesses.
