Berlin Teacher Taught Students to March and Sing Nazi Anthem

Friday, April 17th, 2015

Berlin police have questioned a teachers who marched her 11th-grade students to the tune of a Nazi song whose lyrics they sang, the German Local newspaper reported.

The students marched to the tune of Nazi party anthem “Horst-Wessel-Lied” and sang lyrics that include, “Millions full of hope look up at the swastika…. Soon Hitler flags will fly over every street.”

Police in Berlin questioned a high school music teacher after she made her pupils march up and down a classroom singing a Nazi song, it was reported on Tuesday.

A student who was not in the classroom but apparently heard of it and reported it to the police.

German law prohibits publicly displaying Nazi symbols, which includes publicly singing Nazi songs. The maximum penalty is three years in jail.

However, the police spokesman noted, “A Museum can display a swastika if it does so in a critical setting.”

Prosecutors now have to decide if the teacher taught the song in a “critical context” or was encouraging Nazism.

‘Enigma’ Code-Breaker’s Notebook Sells at Auction for $1M

Tuesday, April 14th, 2015

A 56-page handwritten notebook belonging to World War II Nazi code-breaker Alan Turing sold for more than $1 million at auction Monday by Bonhams in New York.

Turing, a British pioneer in computers and a mathematical genius, led a team of cryptographers in cracking the “unbreakable” Enigma code of Nazi Germany’s military. He is believed to have had a significant impact on helping to end the war.

The notebook, which dates from 1942, is believed to be the only extensive Turing manuscript in existence; its sale price was considered by the auction house to be a tribute to the code-breaker.

Part of the proceeds from the $1,025,000 sale will be donated to charity, according to NBC News. The identity of the person who purchased the manuscript were withheld by Bonhams at the request of the buyer.

Cassandra Hatton of Bonhams said in a statement to media, “It has been a great privilege to have been involved in this sale and we are immensely pleased that all the people who bid for this unique item and indeed the wider public have recognized Turing’s importance and place in history.”

The 2014 Oscar-winning movie, “The Imitation Game” was based on the real life story of Alan Turing and his race against time to break the “Enigma” code.

Archaeologists Find Suspected Nazi Hideout in Argentine Jungle [video]

Tuesday, March 24th, 2015

The Nazi regime under Hitler apparently set aside the structure in the jungle of Argentine for shelter if leaders of the Third Reich had to flee, according to archaeologists who discovered the suspected Nazi hideout.

The building was found on the border with Paraguay and could be reached only after using machetes to cut away vines, according to the team of archaeologists, as reported by the London Telegraph.

The archaeologists found German coins from the 1930s and porcelain fragments on which were written “Made in Germany.”

The conclusions that the location was a Nazi hideout was reached by the team, whose leader Daniel Schavelzon told the Telegraph, “We can find no other explanation as to why anyone would build these structures, at such great effort and expense, in a site which at that time was totally inaccessible, away from the local community, with material which is not typical of the regional architecture.”

Residents in the area believe that the house may have belong belonged to Martin Bormann, Hitler’s right-hand-man who committed suicide in 1945, but Schavelzon told the Argentine newspaper Clarin that the Nazis had a secret project to build shelters in remote locations in the event of defeat.

The Nazis did not need the building because Argentine opened its arms to approximately 5,000 Nazis, including Adolf Eichmann who was captured in Buenos Aires in 1960 by the Mossad.

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
