    Former Mayor of London Ken Livingstone said, in an interview with Al-Ghad Al-Arabi TV, that when Hitler came to power in 1932, he did not want to kill the Jews. He just wanted to "deport all the Zionists to Israel," said Livingstone, who further claimed that Britain and the U.S. should have absorbed the Jewish refugees following WWII, rather than enabling the establishment of the state of Israel, which was "fundamentally wrong." Livingstone added that he never buys Israeli products and that the failure to resolve the Palestinian problem leads Muslims to join ISIS. The interview was conducted on May...

    When I tell people I'm moving to Berlin for the summer, I usually get one of two reactions: 1. Berlin! Such a cool city. I'm jealous! 2. Why? I would never step foot in Germany. Berlin made headlines among Israelis when the "Milky controversy" broke out in 2014. An Israeli Berliner bragged how cheap the cost of living is in Berlin compared to Israel, if grocery receipts are the judge. According to the chocolate pudding index (the Israeli brand being “Milky), the difference is 300 percent. My calculations are not necessarily financial, although I don’t think I could afford living...

    Croatia's Jews will boycott the country's official ceremony honoring the victims of the pro-Nazi regime of World War II, accusing the current government of doing little against what they say is a resurgence of neo-Naziism.

He decried as “heartless” the region’s opposition to accepting refugees and argued that the attitude was rooted in the region’s “murderous...

He was sent to the Nazi's infamous Auschwitz concentration camp, but somehow managed to survive. He was the only member of his family to live through the Holocaust. Kristal claims the...

Klein said Sanders has a “unique obligation” to not let surrogates “trivialize” the Shoah because the secular Jewish socialist lost many family members to Nazi persecution. Klein contended that law professor William Black, who dropped the H-bomb during a campaign conference call with reporters, should have just called Obama’s economic policies “disastrous.”

    JERUSALEM -- Samuel Willenberg, the last survivor of Treblinka, the Nazi death camp where 875,000 people were systematically murdered, has died in Israel at the age of 93. Only 67 people are known to have survived the camp, fleeing in a revolt shortly before it was destroyed. Treblinka holds a notorious place in history as perhaps the most vivid example of the "Final Solution," the Nazi plan to exterminate Europe's Jews. Unlike at other camps, where some Jews were assigned to forced labour before being killed, nearly all Jews brought to Treblinka were immediately gassed to death. Only a select...

When the time comes, the Fatah men who in the last few weeks started jockeying for position will duke it out for real. Such chaotic political fighting often leads to violence. Once that violence ebbs, a new strongman will emerge. But not a peaceful, democratic state of Palestine. This week, the UN’s Ban Ki-moon said Palestinian terrorism...

    Uncovering Holocaust perpetrators where few have lookedMuslim Nazis, female death camp guards, and Dutch ‘bounty hunters’ are coming out of the archival closet, even as fewer Shoah eyewitnesses remain alive to testify BOSTON ~ With new access to archives and other primary sources, historians are supplanting archetypal images of Aryan Nazi men as the Holocaust's sole perpetrators. Previously obscured perpetrator "sub-groups" are being exposed one portrait at a time, ranging from women who guarded death camps to Dutch bounty hunters of Jews in hiding. And as researchers uncover an array of Europeans involved in the murder of Jews and other...

    Police in Britain have begun an investigation into an on-air phone call to a BBC radio program, in which a caller ranted for 13 minutes against "Zionist Jews" and their "rule" over British society. During BBC London's Simon Lederman program on December 22, the man, introduced as “Andy from St. Margaret's," said the world was controlled by "Zionist Jews," including "the Rothschilds, the people who own the Bank of England, the people who own the Federal Reserve." He then continued with a long tirade in which he complained of an obsession with the Holocaust and said, "we are dominated by...

    Daniel Greenfield's article: The Ghosts of Auschwitz in the Middle East Posted: 04 Feb 2015 08:35 AM PST In exile in Argentina, the world’s most wanted man was writing a defense of the indefensible. He rejected “so-called Western culture” whose bible “expressly established that everything sacred came from the Jews.” Instead he looked to the “large circle of friends, many millions of people” whose good opinion of his crimes he wanted. These millions of people were not in Germany. They weren’t even in Argentina. His fellow Nazis had abandoned him after deciding that the murder of millions of Jews was...

    US President Barack Obama on Tuesday drew a comparison between Syrian refugees today and Jewish refugees during World War II, during a speech at a naturalization ceremony of 31 petitioners seeking United States Citizenship held at the National Archive in Washington DC. At the ceremony, marking the 224th anniversary of the ratification of the Bill of Rights, Obama chided those who would seek to clamp down immigration, as he continued to defend his plan to resettle thousands of Syrian refugees in the US. “In the Mexican immigrant today — we see the Catholic immigrant of a century ago. In the...

    May I remind John sKerry that it is existing federal law (8 USC) that anyone associated with the Nazi Party and the Holocaust, despite the passage of time, is permanently ineligible to enter the United States. May I also remind John sKerry that one's political affiliation is, just like their religious affiliation, a voluntary matter. And may I further remind John sKerry, along with the mainslime media and the other so-called "candidates" who are evidencing a desire to see terrorists attack Americans on American soil, and thus should be run out of town on a rail, that only a very...
  • DNC: Anti-Refugee Rhetoric Is Same As Turning Away Jews in 1939

    The Democratic National Committee cannot tolerate Republican rhetoric against the Obama administration's Syrian refugee plan. Rejecting these migrants is equal, in Debbie Wasserman Schultz's eyes, to America's turning away Jews in 1939, forcing them back into Nazi territory. "We have seen this movie before. In May 1939, the SS St. Louis left Hamburg, Germany carrying more than 900 passengers, nearly all of them Jewish and seeking refuge in the United States. Our country turned them away, and many who were sent back to mainland Europe were killed in the Holocaust. Instead of learning from that mistake Republican candidates and politicians were...

    In a TV debate, Egyptian intellectual Dr. Mamoun Fendy compared the Arab and Islamic communities in Europe to the ghettoes of the Jews prior to WWII and presented an extreme position: "that it's possible that the Europeans will do to the Muslims what Hitler did to the Jews." The debate aired on Sky News Arabia on November 19, 2015. Following are excerpts: Mamoun Fandy: Let me say something somewhat extreme about the Muslims living in the West, and I hope that we are talking about a worst case scenario. We have a "geography of extremism" in the West today. The...

    In the opening chapters of “Black Earth: The Holocaust as History and Warning,” Yale professor Timothy Snyder forcefully acknowledged what he calls the “ecological” Anti-Semitism of the Fuhrer, “An instructive account of the mass murder of the Jews of Europe must be planetary, because Hitler’s thought was ecological, treating Jews as a wound of nature.” In spite of such an assertion, however, the great caveat of Snyder’s book is he inexplicably fails to discuss the Nazi ecological historical record that should have informed his thesis ...

    A vast and historically valuable trove of Holocaust-era documents, long thought destroyed during the second world war, has been found hidden in a wall cavity by a couple renovating their Budapest apartment. The haul of 6,300 documents are from a 1944 census that was a precursor to the intended liquidation of the Hungarian capital’s 200,000 Jews in Nazi death camps. Brigitte Berdefy, co-owner of the apartment overlooking Hungary’s parliament, said in August a worker detected paper after jamming a screwdriver through a crack in the wall....
