Stockholm School ‘Love-Bombed’ after Nazi Graffiti Attack

Tuesday, March 11th, 2014

The youth wing of Sweden’s Liberal party organized a “love bombing” Monday night and pasted heart-shaped papers on the same school that was attacked by neo-Nazi vandals the night before.

Stockholm’s “Vasa Real” school was sprayed with swastikas and slogans, such as “disgusting Jews” and the number 1488 that is a symbol for white power and the Nazi Heil Hitler salute.

“We wanted the pupils at the school to be greeted by love in the morning instead of all the hate they saw on Monday,” young Liberal Bawar Esmail told The Local, Sweden’s largest English daily. “So a group of us got together and cut (out) some heart-shaped paper and put them up on the doors and in the hallways at the school,” he explained. “People passing by joined in, and everyone wrote messages for the students.”

The messages contained words such as “Love overcomes hate” and “Love comes in all shapes and colors.” Others wrote that there were 1,000 times more people lovers than haters in Sweden.

More than 800 children study at the school, which includes three high school  classes with Jewish children studying both the Swedish curriculum and Hebrew and Jewish studies.

Greek Doctor Arrested for ‘Jews Not Welcome’ Sign

Sunday, March 2nd, 2014

A Greek doctor who posted a “Jews Not Welcome” sign outside his office was arrested for inciting racial hatred.

The doctor, a 57-year-old neurologist from Thessaloniki, also was charged with weapons possession and pro-Nazi beliefs, according to the Greek Reporter.

The sign was written in German. The doctor, who has not been named, is a member of the Greek ultranationalist Golden Dawn party and an avowed Nazi supporter, according to reports. The party is known for its Nazi swastika-like flag and Holocaust-denying leadership.

Police found three daggers, 12 knives and pills without prescriptions at the doctor’s home. Two of the daggers were engraved with Nazi symbols.

The Jewish community of Thessaloniki was an important center of Sephardic Jewry for 450 years following the expulsion from Spain. It had a pre-World War II Jewish population of 55,000; now about 1,000 Jews live there.

Pope’s Prayers for Peace Omit Iran and Korea

Wednesday, December 25th, 2013

Pope Francis’ first Christmas message was full of hope for peace in war-torn Syria and South Sudan, the “often and overlooked” war-torn Central African Republic and – as if the chaos and mutual barbarity are comparable – for a “favorable” outcome” in talks between Israel and the Palestinian Authority.

He made no mention of what are the widely acknowledged two biggest threats to the world’s security – the nuclear threats from Iran and North Korea. He also did not utter a word about neo-Nazism.

Not surprisingly, the Associated Press led off its report with the pope’s prayers for “successful Middle East negotiations between Israel and the Palestinian Authority,” followed by peace in Syria and African countries. An estimated nine million Syrians – one third of the country’s population – are homeless, and hundreds of thousands, if not millions, have been killed and wounded.

The world has not been able to do anything to stop the barbarity in Syria, but Pope Francis prayed that Jesus would “bless the land where you chose to come into the world and grant a favorable outcome to the peace talks between Israelis and Palestinians. Heal the wounds of the beloved country of Iraq, once more struck by frequent acts of violence.”

Speaking to a cheering crowd of 70, 000 outside the Vatican, the pope explained his idea of peace.

“True peace is not a balancing of opposing forces. It’s not a lovely facade which conceals conflicts and divisions. Peace calls for daily commitment,” he intoned.

That brings to mind “commitments” made by Israel and the Palestinian Authority in previous accords. Virtually no one has accused Israel of not living up to commitments. Israel has a list longer than the width of the country of commitments that the Palestinian Authority has not fulfilled – such as halting incitement and tearing apart the terrorist infrastructure.

He has made the establishment of a Palestinian Authority state his highest priority by announcing a visit to Israel and Bethlehem in May.

Pope Francis also called on atheists to join the effort for peace. “I invite even non-believers to desire peace,” he said.

Greek City to Build Holocaust Museum and Research Center

Monday, December 23rd, 2013

The northern Greek city of Thessaloniki will build a Holocaust research center at the site where some 50,000 of the city’s Jews were deported to Nazi death camps. “This is the fulfilment of a historic responsibility for Thessaloniki,” city Mayor Yiannis Boutaris told reporters.

The agreement to establish the Memorial Center on Holocaust Education Remembrance and Research at the city’s old railway station was signed among the Thessaloniki Jewish community, the city and the Greek transport ministry.

The Jewish community of Thessaloniki was one of the most important centers of Sephardic Jewry for 450 years following the expulsion from Spain. Known as the Flower of the Balkans, it was the center of Ladino culture in the region. In March 1943 the Nazis began sending Jews in railway convoys to the Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp. By August, 49,000 out of the city’s pre-war population of 55,000 Jews had been deported. Fewer than 2,000 survived.

Boutaris has been instrumental in acknowledging the city’s rich Jewish history and the extent of its devastation. Earlier this year he organized a public march to commemorate 70 years since the first deportations, the first such display by the Jewish community since the end of the war.

The Thessaloniki Jewish community said the project was a long-held dream and particularly important at a time when Greece is struggling to deal with the neo-Nazi Golden Dawn Party which has 18 seats in parliament.

Italian Police Launch Crackdown on Neo-Nazi Internet Group Stormfront

Saturday, November 16th, 2013

Italian police launched a widespread operation against the neo-Nazi Internet hate organization Stormfront.

On Thursday, police searched the homes of 35 people aged 17-51 in more than 20 towns and cities up and down the Italian peninsula on suspicion of spreading ideas on the Internet “based on racial and ethnic hatred and incitement to commit acts of discrimination and violence for racist and ethnic reasons.”

Police also uncovered weapons and a swastika flag in the home of a man in Mantova, and they confiscated at least one anti-Semitic video, according to reports.

“This is a dangerous organization under an ideological profile that finds its roots in a historical period that apparently seems distant,” prosecutor Giancarlo Capaldo told a news conference. “We must deal with the ideological extremism that is stirring in Europe.”

Renzo Gattegna, president of the Union of Italian Jewish Communities, issued a statement expressing “warm thanks” to the forces of order for the “massive” crackdown.

Thursday’s operation came one year after another widespread operation against Stormfront in which police blocked the Italian version of the group’s website and arrested four people on charges of inciting racial and ethnic hatred and anti-Semitism. They also raided the homes of 17 others, confiscating fascist and neo-Nazi material.

Hordes of Nazis Visiting the Jewish Press, Get Out the Good Kristall

Monday, November 4th, 2013

Last week I published here an article about an international committee that set out to establish, once and for all, what constitutes Holocaust denial. I wrote the story in near-deadpan delivery, believing in the power of the nonsensical assertions on the part of the government official making those pronouncements to provide its own tongue in cheek: the newly accepted definition of a holocaust denier is “anyone who doubts the number of Jews killed, who denies the existence of the gas chambers, as well as anyone who claims the Jews have brought on the holocaust intentionally, to serve their own ends, such as the establishment of the State of Israel, and also anyone who includes the 1939-1945 holocaust among other great tragedies in human history.”

The child of a Holocaust survivor, I’ve long since learned to own my father’s experience and my own consequent complex emotional ties with those dreadful years. I also believe I’ve earned the right to speak out on these issues honestly and fearlessly. There are no sacred cows in my Holocaust meadow.

I also believe the Holocaust is a purely Jewish issue, painfully intimate, like the destruction of two temples we mourn on Tisha B’Av. Who the heck cares what some gentile thinks about Tisha B’Av? In that same vain, who the heck cares if some gentile denies that my grandfather, Chanina Yanover, may God avenge his blood, was murdered in Auschwitz?

But I didn’t add that last paragraph, just relied on the deadpan delivery to deliver the message.

And then the Nazis showed up, at the comments section. I’m saying “Nazis” for shorthand. I’m sure many of them are not Nazis, not even remotely related to any Nazi or neo-Nazi group, but when there’s a wave happening, it tends to obscure the subtle differences between innocent commenters and dedicated followers of the Führer. For sure, my article was cited lavishly on neo-Nazi forums out there, and their readers took the link ride over to our own corner of the Web.

Here’s a chilling one, from Jonna Larsen, of Lyngby, Kobenhavn, Denmark:

“The time is not far away when Jews like Moshe Kantor, president of EJC, Abe Foxman, of the ADL and Zuroff and Cooper from the Wiesenthal Center, as well as a whole bunch of other prominent censorship promoting Jews, will fall victim to the laws they designed themselves. “

OK, very critical but still reasonable. Then she writes this:

“I seriously think of finding a good opportunity to put one or more of these people on trial for their endless slander and hate speech against white people, Christians, whole Nations and other groups and individuals who oppose the efforts of international Zionist Jewry to darken the world with their heinous proposals for censorship and state prescribed enforced history, thereby undermining the very corner stone of Western Civilization.”

Now, that’s Nazi talk, girl, don’t you know that? Don’t you know if you keep talking like that you’ll get a hairy, Chaplin style moustache growing right under your nose? Oh, but she goes on:

“The main part of organized Jewry is a threat to all other peoples on earth wherever it manifests itself politically. Always mongering for war, always (more or less legally) bribing their way in order to get the results they want. More special rights for Jews, including animal abuse and bodily mutilation of infants, more wars for Israel, mass immigration, censorship and hate speech laws for the Goyim.”

And she’s frothing at the mouth at this point, making it difficult to understand which specific Jew things she’s hating.

So that one was truly vile. At that point, our website boss, Steve, who had been fighting bravely to chop off those five-headed dragon messages, was getting a serious case of carpal tunnel syndrome. The last time he had to work so hard to clean up the messages was when I suggested the Turkish head of Intelligence who sold out Israeli agents to Iran deserved a spanking, causing approximately half of Turkey to visit us and express their unintelligible indignation. And before that, he had to fight the anti-Turks, when we ran here a few items by Turkish Muslims who love Israel. man, that caused a stir.

Would Normal Americans Sign Petition for Nazi State? Yes! (Video)

Tuesday, October 22nd, 2013

Call him an activist, a conspiracy theorist, a trouble maker or plain cuckoo, but Mark Dice has proven that there are ordinary Americans willing to sign their names and list their birthdays on a petition to support a Nazi state “to keep people safe in the good ol’ USA.

Dice, trying to keep a straight face, signed up passers-by in San Diego for a “Nazi-style Orwellian police state…to keep the community safe.”

His YouTube does not show how many people did not sign or perhaps cursed him, but there were enough positive reactions from “normal” Americans to raise a few eyebrows.

Dice’s previous pranks on YouTube have shown that it does not take any more than a mild suggestion to convince Americans to back weird programs. He said in the latest video when people so willingly signed, “Am I not making myself clear?”

Dice explained to people in a matter of fact manner that budget cuts have harmed the ability of San Diego police “keep the community safe” and that there is a need to “increase the Orwellian system.”

He told other supporters, “We just want to model it after the Nazi Germany system to keep people safe and secure” and “Thanks for supporting the police state.”

“Not a problem,” one man responded,

“The City Council does not know what it is doing,” a woman told Dice as she signed.

He replied, “We need to keep the police state funded in the Brave New World.”

In the past, Dice has signed up people to grant President Barack Obama immunity for all crimes he supposedly has committed, such as adding birth control drugs to the water supply.

Dice is branded by some people as cuckoo and by others as a dangerous man. Under the name John Connor, he wrote a book about the New World Order.

One notation in Wikipedia states, “In June 2008, Dice launched a campaign urging people to send letters and DVDs to troops stationed in Iraq which support the theory that the 9/11 attacks were an inside job.’ ‘People want the facts. The Marines are hungry for the truth — what got them there [in Iraq], why are they risking their lives — and we’re going to help them understand that,’ he told Fox News.”

Syndicated talk show host Michael Reagan, the adopted son of President Ronald Reagan, responded by declaring that Dice should be found and killed for treason.”

But the question should not be about Dice but rather the people who signed the petition for a Nazi state in the United States of America.

Golden Dawn Leader Jailed Ahead of Trial in Greece

Thursday, October 3rd, 2013

A Greek court has ordered the head of the ultranationalist Golden Dawn party held in jail until his trial following six hours of testimony that ran through the night.

Nikolaos Michaloliakos was arrested last week with several other lawmakers and senior Golden Dawn members on charges of forming a criminal organization, part of an unprecedented crackdown on the neo-Nazi party. Government spokesman Simos Kedikoglou hailed the decision on Michaloliakos an important victory for the Greek legal system, calling it “the most dynamic confrontation of a neo-Nazi criminal gang in European, and possibly world, history.”

Golden Dawn has 18 seats in the 300-member parliament and is known for its Nazi swastika-like flag and Holocaust-denying leadership. Its leaders have denied the charges against them, saying the arrests were part of a political witch hunt against the party.

The crackdown on Golden Dawn, which included the arrest of more than 10 other party leaders, follows widespread outrage and protests in Greece in the wake of the Sept. 18 killing of anti-fascist rapper Killah P by a suspected Golden Dawn member.
