Pro-Israelis Outnumber London Neo-Nazis 20-1

Sunday, July 5th, 2015

 

Hundreds of Jews and other anti-Nazi demonstrators grossly outnumbered a total of 21 neo-Nazis who paraded in a rally aimed against “Jewification” of London.

Even the number of police surrounding the neo-Nazis outnumbered the hate group, which was met with signs such as “Nazi scum – off our streets.”

The neo-Nazi rally originally was scheduled for the heavily Jewish-populated Golders Green neighborhood, but London officials changed the venue to the Whitehall area because of the fear of a confrontation.

Approximately 200 police officers were present to separate the lower-than-expected numbers of neo-Nazis from the pro-Israel and-anti-Nazi groups.

Among those protesting the neo-Nazi rally were the Green Party and the Socialist Worker Party as well as the left-wing “Jewdas.”

The London Jewish Chronicle reported that a Jewdas spokesman said:

We should oppose Nazis wherever they happen to be, to make a loud noise to show that we’re opposing them in central London too – it’s not just Golders Green.

There are Jews here too. By being here at least passers-by aren’t walking by and just seeing another rally, they’re seeing people opposing them.

“These people don’t just have crazy ideas, they have racist ideas. They hurt people, they beat up people. We stand against them.

A New Hitler: Dylann Roof’s Anti-Jewish-Spanish-East Asian Manifesto

Sunday, June 21st, 2015

A 2,500 manifesto that apparently was posted by Dylann Roof Storm reveals his obsession against Jews, Hispanics and East Asians, as well as the American flag.

Storm, why has pleaded guilty the murders of nine blacks in a Charleston, S.C. church last week, wrote his rant on the Last Rhodesian website, which originally was registered in his name, according to The New York Times.

The only thing differentiating Roof from Hitler seems to be a moustache.

Photos have appeared of Roof burning and stomping on an American flag.

His manifesto of hate includes referees to blacks, whom he calls “Negroes” and sometimes “niggers,” are stupid and violent. As for Jews, he wrote:

In my opinion the issues with Jews is not their blood, but their identity. I think that if we could somehow destroy the Jewish identity, then they wouldnt [sic] cause much of a problem.

The problem is that Jews look White, and in many cases are White, yet they see themselves as minorities.

Just like niggers, most Jews are always thinking about the fact that they are Jewish. The other issue is that they network. If we could somehow turn every Jew blue for 24 hours, I think there would be a mass awakening, because people would be able to see plainly what is going on.

Roof’s manifesto may be good evidence for his lawyers to prove to the court he is insane. There are several contradictions in his rant.

He wrote:

This White superiority complex that comes from learning of how we dominated other peoples is also part of the problem….. But of course I don’t[sic[ deny that we are in fact superior.

I wish with a passion that n****rs were treated terribly throughout history by Whites, that every White person had an ancestor who owned slaves, that segregation was an evil an [sic] oppressive institution, and so on.

…But it isnt [sic[ true. None of it is…..it is all based on historical lies, exaggerations and myths.

… Only a fourth to a third of people in the South owned even one slave. Yet every White person is treated as if they had a slave owning [sic] ancestor.

As for Hispanics, Roof declared:

Hispanics are obviously a huge problem for Americans. But there are good Hispanics and bad Hispanics…..They have respect for White beauty, and a good portion of Hispanics are White…..

There is good White blood worht [sic] saving in Uruguay, Argentina, Chile and even Brasil [sic].

But they are still our enemies.

He also stated that East Asians are racists.

Roof wrote, “I hate the sight of the American flag,” and he said that “modern American patriotism is an absolute joke” but he “would have rather lived in 1940’s American than Nazi Germany.”

His Hitler-minded manifesto states that “drastic action” is needed to keep minorities from taking over the United States.

Roof maintains that black are inherently different from white, explaining that “anyone who thinks that White and black people look as different as we do on the outside, but are somehow magically the same on the inside, is delusional. How could our faces, skin, hair, and body structure all be different, but our brains be exactly the same? ”

One photo of Roof has a clear reference to Hitler. He is shown at a beach with the number “1488.” a code used by White supremacists. The number 14 refers to a 14-word slogan: We must secure the existence of our people and a future for White Children” and is apparently inspired by an 88-word passage in Mein Kampf.

The digits “88” have at least two meanings. The letter “H” is the eighth letter in the alphabet, and two of the letters together, which would be 88, are the initials for Heil Hitler.

Tony Blair Appointed Chairman of European Council on Tolerance

Thursday, June 4th, 2015

Tony Blair, outgoing Quarter envoy to the Middle East and the former Prime Minister of Britain, has been appointed chairman of the European Council on Tolerance and Reconciliation (ECTR), an international organization based in Brussels that fights against racism, anti-Semitism and xenophobia.

He succeeds Aleksander Kwaśniewski, former President of Poland

Blair said after his appointment:

The work they [ECTR] are doing is crucial, because despite our best efforts to build a consensus around tolerance in Europe, we still see injustice, discrimination and hideous acts of violence on the continent.

Incidents of extremism, rising anti-Semitism and surging Nationalist forces who seek to cultivate a spirit of resentment by playing on people’s fears, threaten our European ideals of freedom, equality and a desire for peace.

Among ECTR’s ongoing projects is the Model Statute for the Promotion of Tolerance, designed to introduce legal parameters of tolerance across Europe. The statue has been introduced at the European Parliament and various national parliaments across Europe.

“In his role at the Tony Blair Faith Foundation, it is clear that Mr. Blair has a strong commitment to the promotion of inter-religious and inter-cultural dialogue through practical education, which aligns very clearly with the ECTR’s mission and goals.” Dr. Kantor added. “His international reach will also allow the organization to address globally the fight against anti-Semitism, racism and xenophobia.”

Blair’s big name and big bucks are a magnet for influential people, and his appointment could be a two-edged sword for Israel if he tries to “balance” a campaign targeting incitement against Jews by appeasing the Palestinian Authority with charges of racism against Israel for the chutzpa to sanction organized soccer teams in Judea and Samaria.

Police Finally Fire Officer Who Assaulted Soldier of Ethiopian Origin

Thursday, May 14th, 2015

Police have finally fired the officer who was caught on video assaulting Damas Pakada and then arresting him for supposedly having attacked him.

Police commissioner Yochanan Danino explained that the unidentified police officer was not dismissed immediately because he “made several claims” and that discussions on in the incident included legal advisers.

The broadcast of the video of the assault set off violent protests by the Ethiopian community against police brutality and racism.

The fired police office still faces possible criminal charges, which Danino said are pending the outcome of an investigation and if there is enough evidence to indict him.

The video shows that the police officer approached Pakada, who was on a sidewalk with his bicycle, spoke to him and within one second started beating him.

‘Anarchists’ Inciting Violence at Ethiopian Protest against Police [video]

Monday, May 4th, 2015

Police said Monday morning that anarchists incited protesters to violence in last night’s march in Tel Aviv against police brutality and racism, undermining the demonstrators’ objectives.

Protesters were armed with rocks and metal objects which they hurled at police officers, 56 of whom were injured lightly. Police arrested 43 demonstrators and hurled stun grenades in the middle of a crowd blocking a major artery at rush-hour in Tel Aviv.

Both a senior police official and “Elazar,” who made Aliyah from Ethiopia years before the massive airlift in Operation Shlomo, told Voice of Israel radio (Reshet Bet) that the protest turned violent partly because of anarchists, whom the interviewer later said could be “leftists or rightists,” although the term “right-wing anarchist” in Israel is almost contradictory.

Left-wing elements, many of them funded by American Jews and non-Jews, often have been accused of inciting Arabs and illegal African immigrants to violence.

The charge of “racism,” which undoubtedly is true but not always to the Nth degree as sometimes described, is a good way to rile up the riff-raff. That is exactly what happened last night.

Mahratta Baruch-Ron, the deputy mayor Tel Aviv and an Ethiopian, tried to calm down the protesters, but to no avail; the anarchists and trouble-makers took over.

Like last week’s protest in Jerusalem that turned violent when nearly 1,000 protesters surged towards to the official residence of the Prime Minister, last night’s demonstration lacked responsible leadership.

Police did not interfere Sunday night even when protesters blocked major arteries near Rabin Square in downtown Tel Aviv, and it appeared that some people in the crowd were itching for a fight by deciding to proceed towards the high-speed intra-city Ayalon Highway.

Yediot Acharonot, which never misses an opportunity to whitewash leftist criminals and find cause against Netanyahu, reported that “social activists” joined the protesters.

The protests were sparked by a video shown on Israeli television last week of two policemen assaulting, without any provocation, an Ethiopian soldier, who was clad with kippa. Discrimination against Ethiopians is widespread while the police show no discrimination when it comes to excessive violence.

The protesters have concentrated on racism, while political leaders, including Bayit Yehudi (Jewish Home) chairman Naftali Bennett, have hitched a ride on the “race card” rather than pursuing the opportunity to demand massive reform in the police force.

The plagues of racism and violence against police, as well as police violence against civilians, elicited an immediate response from Prime Minister Netanyahu.

He is meeting Monday with Ethiopian community representatives, soldier Damas Pakada who was filmed being beaten by the policemen. Police Commissioner Yohanan Danino, and representatives of the Public Security, Social Affairs and Social Services, Aliyah and Immigrant Absorption, and Interior ministries.

They will make statements announcing funding for projects aimed at the Ethiopian community and will ignore police brutality.

The new protest movement is continuing Monday morning with a march in Jerusalem. Travelers are advised that major arteries, including Sderot Herzl, Rabin, Shazar, Ben Tzvi and Ruppin are closed as of 11 a.m.

The U.S. Embassy yesterday warned citizens that protests that are “intended to be peaceful can turn confrontational and escalate into violence” and advised, “You should avoid areas of demonstrations, and exercise caution if in the vicinity of any large gatherings, protests, or demonstrations.”

Below, an Ethiopian protester tells Channel 2, in Hebrew, that outside inciters turned the peaceful march into a violent riot.

Bibi Apologizes to Arabs but Obama Does not Apologize to Jews

Tuesday, March 24th, 2015

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has apologized to Israeli Arabs for his Election Day statements urging Jews to counter the “droves of Arabs” at the polls, but President Barack Obama and American media have not apologized to Netanyahu for falsely representing his remark.

The New York Times lead off the hit parade of Netanyahu-bashers by calling the Prime Minister’s remarks a smack of “racism.” and Obama picked up the thread by accusing Netanyahu of inciting racism.

But what did Netanyahu actually say? Here is his quote, widely reported by thousands of news outlets:

Right-wing rule is in danger. Arab voters are going to the polls in droves. Left-wing organizations are bringing them in buses.

That’s it. He did not imply or even suggest that Arabs should not vote. He simply stated that because Arabs are “coming out in droves” to vote, presumably for the Joint Arab List that might agree to allow a left-wing coalition government, Jews needed to show up at the polls and vote for the Likud.

The New York Times editorial the day after the elections reads as if Netanyahu had said something else. The editorial stated:

This outrageous appeal to hard-line voters implied that only he could save Israel from its enemies, including the country’s Arab citizens, who represent 20 percent of the population and have long been discriminated against….

In his desperation, Mr. Netanyahu resorted to fear-mongering and anti-Arab attacks.

Anti-Arab? “Enemies.” That is what The New York Times may wish Netanyahu had said, but fiction makes for good reading at the Times.

President Barack Obama followed by stating,

Although Israel was founded based on the historic Jewish homeland and the need to have a Jewish homeland, Israeli democracy has been premised on everybody in the country being treated equally and fairly.

And I think that that is what’s best about Israeli democracy. If that is lost, then I think that not only does it give ammunition to folks who don’t believe in a Jewish state, but it also I think starts to erode the meaning of democracy in the country.

Where, pray tell Mr. President, did Netanyahu even hint that Jews and Arabs are not treated equally?

The president’s reaction, along with that of the NY Times and the Israel anti-Netanyahu media, is an egregious libel  based on a non-truth and a twisted interpretation that is unparalleled outside of dictatorial regimes where truth is another word for a lie.

Netanyahu’s comments certainly were undiplomatic and offensive in a country where the Arabs are a minority and often discriminated against, but they were not racist by any stretch of the imagination. They simply touched a raw nerve by referring to Arabs as a political group that could block a right-wing government.

He apologized Monday, stating that he “knows my comments last week offended some Israeli citizens and offended members of the Israeli-Arab community. This was never my intent. I apologize for this. I view myself as the prime minister of each and every citizen of Israel, without any bias of religion, ethnicity or gender.”

But President Obama, The New York Times and the Israeli establishment media have not flipped to  the other side of the coin.

If it is wrong for Netanyahu to scare Jews into voting by warning that the Arabs might usher in a left-wing government, is it kosher for  pro-Arab groups to urge Arabs to vote to counter Jewish right-wing ballots?

In the weird world of truth in the bankrupt left, the end justifies the means when it comes to defeating the right wing.

At least two pro-Arab groups, The Abraham Fund and Ameinu, have admitted to organizing a campaign to urge Arabs to vote, and  there is suspicion that The Abraham Fund may have done so with the help of the American taxpayer.

The Abraham Fund’s election campaign slogan was “Building a shared future for Israel’s Jewish and Arab citizens.”

It launched a “Broad-Based Action Plan to Increase the Participation of Arab Citizens in upcoming Elections for Knesset.” The Abraham Fund, based in Jerusalem, New York City and London,  stated that it “focuses its plans on a number of areas including running conferences for Arab students in colleges and launching a media and advertising campaign to persuade the Arab public to participate in the democratic process and vote in the elections.”

Fair enough, but targeting Arabs to vote is no less “racist” than targeting Jews to vote, regardless of the reason.

But it is not fair if State Dept. grants are used to encourage Arabs, and not Jews, to vote.

WorldNetDaily journalist Aaron Klein reported, “In 2010, the State Department provided the Abraham Fund a $999,715 three-year grant for an education initiative in cooperation with Israel’s Ministry of Education. Another part of the grant was designated to a project with the Israeli security services aimed at fostering closer Arab-Jewish ties.

“Amnon Beeri-Sulitzeanu, co-executive director of the Abraham Fund, told KleinOnline the U.S. government funds are not being utilized for the voter-participation drive.

“‘The initiative is being paid for by private donations from donors interested in Arab participation,’ he said.

“He acknowledged, however, that ‘some (money for the project) comes from our core funding at the Abraham Fund. Since our workers are getting paid anyway, some of their job is dedicated to the vote project.'”

Another group that tried to get more Arabs to vote in last week’s elections is Ameinu, an American non-profit organization. It director Kenneth Bob said at a J Street panel Sunday, “We helped put together a get-out-the-vote effort in the Arab community.”

He confirmed charges by Netanyahu that U.S.-funded groups were behind the move to bring Arabs to the polls. The Washington Free Beacon quoted Bob as saying, “When Bibi spoke about the tens of millions of dollars pouring into this effort, my only correction was it wasn’t tens of millions. He exaggerated a little bit.”

The Free Beacon reported in February on a confidential memo drafted by Ameinu in December 2014 outlining the Arab-targeted initiative led by the group Givat Haviva, which “brought a delegation of Arab-Israeli mayors to the United States in February to meet with Democratic leaders and learn political organizing techniques.

“The State Department expedited the mayors’ visas, according to internal correspondence obtained by the Free Beacon.

“One week before the trip, Darawshe and other Givat Haviva representatives also met with high-ranking American diplomats, including the deputy mission chief, at the U.S. embassy in Tel Aviv to discuss the planned visit.”

No one has apologized for encouraging Arabs, but not Jews, to vote in the elections.

Cops Shot in Ferguson, Missouri: Racism Heating Up America

Thursday, March 12th, 2015

The vicious racism that has simmered so long under America’s polite society is again beginning to rise to the surface. And it’s not confined to one social group by a long shot. But it may – and in fact already has – affected the Jews, as most social issues usually do.

In the wee hours of Thursday morning, just hours after the city’s police chief resigned, two police officers were shot in Ferguson, Missouri, a city of 21,000.

Protests – riots, violence, looting, marches, demonstrations and everything else in between – have continued for 200 days. The unrest began when a grand jury cleared Darren Wilson, a white police officer for shooting Michael Brown, the unarmed black 18-year-old who attacked the officer after stealing cigars from a store and attacking the store’s clerk. Wilson has since resigned.

Thursday’s attack came during a demonstration – the largest yet — in front of the Ferguson police department. Protesters were chanting, “Racist cops have got to go.”

But the shooter was not among the mob, claimed protesters who spoke with CNN, and is still at large.

Meanwhile, demonstrators are now demanding the disbanding of the entire police force and the resignation of the city’s mayor. The judge who oversaw the court system in the city has resigned, the city’s court clerk was fired last week and two police officers have resigned. The city manager is resigning as well.

No Ferguson police officers were involved in covering the protest: Police from surrounding communities were assigned to the Ferguson demonstration when the shooting occurred.

St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar told CNN that neither officer was from the Ferguson Police Department: one, shot in the shoulder, was a 14-year veteran of the county police force. The second – shot in the face – was a 7-year veteran of the Webster Groves force. Both are listed in serious condition.

“I have said all along that we cannot sustain this forever without problems,” Belmar told media.

“That’s not an indictment on everybody that’s out there, certainly ‘expressing their First Amendment rights.’ But we have seen, in law enforcement, that this is a very, very, very dangerous environment for the officers to work in.”

Just a few days ago, a fraternity house at Oklahoma University was shut down after a video of its members singing an anti-black racist chant went viral on the Internet. The students who led the chant – which implied lynching black people – were expelled.

The University of Texas said this week in a statement that it, too, is now investigating claims that its SAE chapter at Austin had also used the same chant. A number of other chapters nationwide are being investigated as well.

Tensions are rising, as Twitter comments that the chant is not new are being pulled off the Internet, and graffiti is being spray-painted on to the offending former frat house.

For days, the scandal rocked America and each detail was scrupulously televised and massaged by the media.

What has not been reported nationwide, nor has received the same government scolding and concern, is the long-standing issue of rising anti-Semitism on American campuses.

Posters that proclaim the banner “STUDENTS FOR JUSTICE IN PALESTINE” (SJP) show a photo of what appears to be two muscular male college students in black tees and cargo pants, both holding assault rifles and wearing black ski masks, standing with a kneeling younger unidentified student in jeans and a tee shirt between them, hands tied behind his back with a bag over his head. Below the photo is the hashtag, #JewHaters .

A second poster with the same slogans showed a photo of two terrorists riding a motorcycle dragging a victim on his back through the streets, tied to the back of the bike by his feet.
