Indictment Filed Against MK Hanin Zoabi

Thursday, January 7th, 2016

MK Hanin Zoabi was indicted Thursday by the Northern District State Attorney’s Office on charges of “disgracing a public servant.”

The prosecution filed the charge as part of a plea bargain in which the Knesset member agreed to plead guilty as charged.

In return, the prosecution agreed not to charge the lawmaker with a more serious accusation of incitement to racism or threats.

The prosecution is also expected to seek a suspended prison term; Zoabi, however, is expected to vigorously oppose this and argue for a fine.

The accusation results from a July 6, 2014 incident in which Zoabi sneered at Israeli Arab security personnel. The MK told a mob of demonstrators at a court in Nazareth that Israeli Arabs who work for government security forces “should be scared of us.”

Zoabi called Israeli Arab police officers “traitors.” She told the mob to spit in their faces and made remarks with implied threats towards the officers.

The plea deal worked out with the MK was signed in December by Zoabi and outgoing Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein.

Trump Tweets Photo of Bush and Swastika

Wednesday, November 4th, 2015

Donald Trump has committed political suicide.

The flamboyant “love him or hate him” candidate for the Republican party prudential nomination has tweeted a montage of pictures of candidate Jeb Bush, with a swastika placed next to him.

NBC News reported:

Tuesday’s tweet from Trump appeared to be quoting from — or a partial retweet of — a supporter’s message with a photo collage of anti-Bush imagery.

One of the pictures in the montage shows Bush, whose wife is Mexican, wearing a sombrero and standing next to a cactus.

Trump finally has fulfilled pundits’ predictions, albeit six months late, and has fallen from first place in polls, which now shows retired black neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson leading the pack.

The racist post does not necessarily reflect pressure that Trump feels by losing his lead. It simply may just be another brainless outburst from the real estate mogul who has done a great job of entertaining the media and Americans since his announcement that he would run for president.

The tweet of a swastika next to Bush is bound to earn guffaws from his supporters in the Ku Klux Klan but is just as likely to cost him a lot of support from normal right-wing voters.

Liverpool Jews Brace for Neo-Nazi ‘White Man March’ Set for Sabbath

Wednesday, August 12th, 2015

Jews in Liverpool are bracing themselves to face a nasty round of ugly neo-Nazi hate with the ‘White Man March’ held on the Sabbath, courtesy of British law.

In fact, neo-Nazis all over the Twitterverse are salivating over the upcoming event. As the organizers themselves explained in a tweet:

White Man March UK @WhiteManMarchUK – Jun 6
We do not stand to oppose the colour of a man’s skin, we stand to oppose a sick Jewish ideological system @SmashCM79

Previous similar marches have been held as a platform for neo-Nazis to commit hate crimes in Britain, the Meyerside Jewish Representative Council noted in a petition to Chief Constable Sir Jon Murphy QPM of Meyerside Police.

The first ‘White Man March’ was held on March 21 of this year in Newcastle where neo-Nazis were “completely unopposed,” organizers bragged in a tweet. Footage of that event is self-explanatory.

Activists on the Twitter social networking site have been tweeting for nearly a month about the upcoming event.

“This march is a disgrace to the culture heritage of Liverpool and is a vehicle from which unnecessary violence could derive.” wrote one person today (Wednesday, August 12.)

“This is a march to incite racism. This kid has sent serious threats to our mayor and our city. Why hasn’t he been arrested?” asked another in a tweet, also posted today.

“I am a Christian minister and a supporter of Liverpool’s Jewish community,” tweeted a third.

But these voices of reason are being drowned out by the vicious anti-Semitism and racist garbage being fired across the Internet by neo-Nazi organizers and White Supremacists.

White Man March anti-Semitic tweets

The Meyerside Jewish Representative Council asked the Chief Constable to exercise his powers under Section 14 of the Public Order Act 1986 to restrict the planned march.

Instead, the community activist group is asking Murphy to force the neo-Nazis to hold their demonstration at a location away from major thoroughfares and residential areas, for a short time and restricted to a small number of participants.

In addition, the Jewish group has called on Meyerside Police and the Liverpool City Council to apply for an injunction against the neo-Nazi event under Part 1 of the Anti-Social Behavior, Crime and Policing Act 2014.

They are hoping to ban the organizers and speakers for the planned march from making or causing to be made or distributing any statement or image likely to cause harassment, alarm and distress; and holding any kind of public assembly within two hundred meters of a synagogue, Jewish cemetery, or Jewish community or cultural center.

The march, organized by Wayne Jarvis of Castleford, is backed by the far-right National Action (NA. Also supporting the march are other racist) and anti-Semitic groups, including the North West Infidels (NWI), the Misanthropic Division and the National Front.

An equally active “Stop the Nazi ‘White Man’ March” movement is organized on Facebook and is urging members to retweet and share posts until gathering at 11am at William Brown Street in Liverpool, an hour before the scheduled start of the neo-Nazi march.

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.
