Germany: MP accused of making anti-Semitic, racist videos for far-right group

Posted: 29 Nov 2017 08:00 AM PST

Via Politico:
A senior member of the Alternative for Germany party is accused of having produced anti-Semitic and racist videos for a radical far-right group.

According to the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, Peter Felser, a member of the Bundestag and one of the AfD's parliamentary party deputies, is an owner of a production company called wk&f Kommunikation which, from 2001 to 2003, made campaign films for the extreme-right Republikaner (Republicans) party.

The Republikaner party has in the past been monitored by German intelligence services because of extreme views, FAZ reported.

The videos produced by Felser's firm were banned. A German court found that one of the video clips was "endorsing, denying or downplaying the Holocaust," Spiegel reported.

Felser told Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung he regretted the films, and agreed that "indeed, they could be understood as a denial of the Holocaust."

Russia: Bishop caims that Jews killed Czar in ritual murder

Posted: 29 Nov 2017 07:00 AM PST

Via Haaretz:
Russia's largest Jewish organization protested a local bishop's claim, repeated by a justice ministry official, that the country's last czar was murdered by Jews for ritual purposes.

Marina Molodtsova, a senior investigator for a special ministerial committee on the 1917 killing of Czar Nicholas II of Russia, said on Monday during a conference in Moscow that her committee will conduct "a psycho-historical examination" to find out whether the execution of the royal family was a ritual murder, the state-run Ria Novosti news agency reported.

At the same event, Father Tikhon Shevkunov, a Russian Orthodox Church bishop, said that, according to "the most rigorous approach to the version of ritual murder, a significant part of the church commission [on Nicholas II's killing during the Russian revolution of 1917] has no doubt that this murder was ritual."

Europe: Historically, labelling Jews as such has significant, overwhelming and unambiguously anti-semitic cultural meaning

Posted: 29 Nov 2017 05:57 AM PST

This comment (screen shot) was left @ Politico following an article about "the decision to label settlement goods" which "causes friction within the bloc and strains ties with a staunch ally".  
Clockmed: "We should exterminate all Jews everywhere"

Reader Sebastian makes some interesting points on the comments section.  They are worth noting:
After all, Israel's arguments that it is being singled out for labelling solely because it is Jewish. This is exacerbated by the fact that historically, labelling Jews as such has significant, overwhelming and unambiguously anti-semitic cultural meaning from the perspective of virtually all Jews.

Personally, I would be happy if all occupied territories around the world were labelled as such, but the fact that the EU is "technically" now in a situation of apartheid by treating the Israeli people as second class citizens under the law, it is impossible for me to ever see this anger by Israel going away.

The EU seems to be calculating that they will take a bit of flack from Israel and things will get back to normal. I think they have massively massively underestimated the cultural significance and outright seriousness of their actions. I can't see Israelis or any government they elect ever letting this one go.

The only difference is that neither Morroco nor Turkey are Jewish states and the Turks and Moroccans affected are not Jewish. That and that alone (directly or indirectly) is why Morroco and Turkey have never been threatened with labelling. You want more examples world wide. I believe there are about 200 of them.
Posted on 1/5/16 | 3:41 PM CET
Israel signed an FTA with the EU that makes a clear distinction between Israel and Israeli-occupied territories. Nobody forced it to. That is why Cyprus and the Sahara are totally irrelevant in this context. Turkey and Morocco are not violating the obligations they voluntarily undertook viz. the EU. Israel is."

Livni did it because she was forced too. The EU has never attempted to force such terms on Morrocco or Turkey or China or anybody else exploiting disputed or occupied territories. [...] 

The difference now is that this discrimination has entered into EU law as it is actually implemented in practice, which now means the EU is technically in a state of apartheid.

German schoolbook publisher apologizes for anti-Semitic illustration

Posted: 29 Nov 2017 05:57 AM PST

Via JTA:
A schoolbook publisher has apologized for using an anti-Semitic illustration in a text about the euro crisis and said it will send a substitute page to schools.
On Thursday, Berlin-based Klett-Verlag also said it was halting all further deliveries of the book, calling the error "serious." The substitute page can be pasted in.
The book will not be removed from German schools' bookshelves.
Klett-Verlag told Vice magazine blogger Philipp Frohn that the "regrettable mistake" would be corrected in a future edition, which will not come out for several years.
At issue is an image in the firm's textbook about politics, called "Impulses 2." It depicts the euro as a Pacman-like chomping mouth about to devour Europe superimposed over a symbol with the words "Rothschild Bank."
The notion that the Jewish banking family is controlling the world for its own selfish purposes "is a classic anti-Semitic conspiracy theory that the Nazis made good use of," Frohn wrote.
"The message to pupils … is clear: The driving force behind the whole nasty affair is a bank. A Jewish bank," he added.
The book credits the notorious American illustrator David Dees, whose work the New York-based Anti-Defamation League called "anti-Semitic and conspiratorial" in a 2008 report. The ADL noted that Dees, on his own website, said he hoped his images would "wake others up about the onslaught of the elite's power hungry world government plan of domination."
His current illustrations include portrayals of Hillary Clinton as a zombie; Donald Trump chained around the neck by a golden fob bearing the words "The Fed" and a Star of David; and work suggesting that mass shootings in schools are a Jewish conspiracy against the NRA.
Frohn said the publisher reacted with surprise to his questions about how Dees' illustration ended up in the textbook, which has been used in schools across Germany since 2012. The publisher responded after "internal discussions" to say that "the use of this caricature is in fact a regrettable mistake," and promising to remove the image from its online version of the chapter "as soon as possible." But it could take years before a new edition is published, a spokesperson added.

Spain: First travelling Auschwitz exhibition hit by anti-Semitic hate campaign

Posted: 29 Nov 2017 05:49 AM PST

Via Daily Telegraph:
Organisers of the first major off-site exhibition of objects and artefacts from Auschwitz have been targeted by virulent social media attacks leading up to the world premiere opening of the display in Madrid on December 1.

"People use the anonymity of social media to launch negationist and hate-filled messages. This shows us that there are still people who need to know this story," Luis Ferreiro, the director of Spanish company Musealia, told the Daily Telegraph.

More than 100 messages have been reported to the Spanish authorities, including messages denying the Holocaust.

The exhibition features more than 600 objects from Auschwitz, including one of the freight wagons used to carry prisoners to the camp.

Europe: 60 MEPs urge Federica Mogherini to marginalize financially and politically anti-Israel groups like BDS

Posted: 29 Nov 2017 01:57 AM PST

This initiative comes shortly after, the European Parliament decided that terrorists like Leila Khaled would not be granted further access to the Parliament.

Via European Jewish Press:
In a letter, the cross party group of 60 [out of 751, less than 10 per cent, full list below] Members of the European Parliament urged Federica Mogherini to marginalize, both financially and politically organizations such as BDS that are increasingly becoming a virulent source in the spread of anti-Semitism and anti-Zionism under the pretense of exercising freedom of speech and association. 
The move is spearheaded by representatives of the four major political groups, MEP Cristian Dan Preda, MEP Ioan Mircea Pascu (S&D, Romania) and a Vice-President of the  European Parliament, MEP Petras Austrevicius (ALDE, Lithuania), MEP Arne Gericke (ECR, Germany). 
It "calls upon ensuring that no public funds go to organizations calling for a boycott of the State of Israel, and to instruct agencies not to engage with companies, organizations or other entities involved with the BDS movement". 
MEP Cristian Dan Preda, foreign affairs coordinator for the largest political group, the European People's Party, and co-initiator of the letter underlined  his party's  opposition to calls for the suspension of the bilateral agreements with Israel  as some of his extreme left wing colleagues echo directly from the BDS playbook.   "It's in the interest of this House, and of our citizens, to see an upgrade in the partnership agreement with Israel. We should not allow the current stalemate in the peace process to dictate the terms of our relationship with Israel." 
Swedish MEP and President of Europe Israel Public Affairs (EIPA) political Board Lars Adaktusson - a co- signatory - underlined that "the Union, and the Parliament, is in danger of being deemed irrelevant as a peace broker if it fails to address the incitement on its own soil against Israel."  
Vice President of the European Parliament, Ioan Mircea Pascu indicated that boycotting strategic ties with Israel, a leader in the international intelligence and defence community, may prove counterproductive to the common security interests of both, EU and Israel. 
The 60 signatories, among which are Chair of Security and Defence, MEP Anna Fotyga (ECR, Poland), Vice-Preident Pavel Telicka (ALDE, Czech Republic), Dietmar Koster (S&D, Germany), Vice-Chair of Human Rights Beatriz Becerra (ALDE, Spain) urged their Foreign Affairs chief to "address the incitement to hatred and violence and discriminatory practice of calls for boycotts, divestment and sanctions against the State of Israel."
