Only days after the desecration with "Free Palestine" graffiti, the Thessaloniki Holocaust memorial was vandalized by Greek nazis with "Golden Dawn" graffiti (see photo of the new vandalism below).

Tens of thousands of Greeks protested today in Thessaloniki the use of the name "Macedonia" in a solution to a dispute between Greece and Republic of Macedonia.

...

Earlier today, Greek news outlet thestival.gr detected antisemitic leaflets at the White Tower square targeting the Mayor of Thessaloniki, Yiannis Boutaris, and calling him "a slave of the Jews".

UK: Police investigating claims of antisemitic abuse at Liverpool-Spurs Premier League match

Posted: 07 Feb 2018 04:00 AM PST


Via JC:
Police are investigating allegations that Liverpool supporters directed antisemitic language towards Tottenham Hotspur players after the two sides' heated Premier League match on Sunday.

Video footage appeared to show a Liverpool fan in the Main Stand section of Anfield using the term "Jewish c**ts" moments after Spurs forward Harry Kane converted a contentious penalty to draw the match level at 2-2.

"Three or four" fans in total were also heard calling Tottenham players "Yid c**ts", according to a journalist covering the game.

He said: "There was about three or four people that passed me on the way out of Anfield who were engaged in it.

"One supporter spotted some Spurs fans celebrating Kane's penalty and started screaming 'Yid c***s' repeatedly as he left and was gesturing towards them.

"I'm sure (Liverpool's) stadium cameras would pick him out if they provided it. Others just shouted about 'Yids'."

Germany: 'Hitler bell' mayor won't repeat 'Nazi-jargon' about Jews

Posted: 07 Feb 2018 03:00 AM PST


Via DW:
Georg Welker, the independent mayor of southern German town Herxheim am Berg, has promised that he will never again make statements that draw distinctions between Jewish and German victims of Nazi crimes.

During an appearance on the German public television show Kontraste, Welker spoke about a controversial Nazi-era church bell in Herxheim. Welker argued that the bell, which is emblazoned with the words, "Everything for the Fatherland – Adolf Hitler," should be kept as a monument to those who suffered under the Nazis. He said that when the bell rings: "I hear the victims, these were German citizens, not just Jews."

Welker was immediately sued by a city resident after making the statement, and was sharply criticized by Josef Schuster, the president of the Central Council of Jews in Germany.
Schuster accused the mayor of ridiculing victims with his words, saying that Welker was espousing Nazi ideology by drawing distinctions between Jews and Germans. Welker denied that he sought to make such a distinction, adding that he was simply thinking of all of the people that he had buried during his time as a pastor in Herxheim. Welker said many of those people had been the victims of Nazi crimes as well.

Poland : Israel's embassy receives wave of antisemitic messages after Holocaust bill

Posted: 07 Feb 2018 02:14 AM PST


Via  Jerusalem Post:
Ambassador to Warsaw Anna Azari said on Friday that there has been a wave of antisemitic verbal attacks in Poland in the days following the passage of a bill that would make it criminal to suggest that Poland was complicit in the Holocaust.

"In the last few days we could not help but notice a wave of antisemitic statements, reaching the embassy through all channels of communication," the embassy said, adding that Azari was personally targeted in many of the messages.
While Krzysztof Czabanski, head of the National Media Council, said that "there is no place for antisemitic statements on the public media," the embassy said that the problem is on-going.

"We would like to use this opportunity to repeat that Israel stands with Poland in using the proper term for the death camps – 'German Nazi camps,'" the embassy statement read. "We hope that over 30 years of work and dedication of wonderful people, both in Poland and in Israel, will not be in vain and that we will be able to cooperate in an atmosphere of dialogue and shared understanding."
