    Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson said Monday he "absolutely" stands by his preferred running mate's comment comparing Donald Trump's immigration plan to Nazi Germany. "Absolutely, absolutely. In New Mexico here, is my door going to be knocked down because I'm going to get checked for papers?" Johnson, who served as New Mexico's governor for two terms, when asked by CNN's Jake Tapper on "The Lead." Former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld -- who is expected to be picked alongside Johnson to run on the Libertarian Party ticket at a nominating convention this weekend -- told The New York Times on Thursday...

    A senior British MP has compared a violent anti-Israel riot at a London university last week to kristallnacht, as condemnation of the violence carried out by pro-Palestinian activists continues to mount. In an interview with Sky News on Sunday morning, Sir Eric Pickles - a former minister who now serves as the United Kingdom's Special Envoy for post-Holocaust issues - likened the incident, in which windows were smashed and at least one Jewish student was physically assaulted, to the Nazi pogrom in which anti-Semitic thugs ransacked Jewish-owned synagogues, shops and other establishments in Germany. ...
  • MK Zoabi uses Kristallnacht speech to compare Israel to Nazis

    Controversial MK: 'It is easy to notice [Israel's] gradual moral descent that reminds us of Germany during the 1930's.' MK Haneen Zoabi (Joint List) spoke at an Amsterdam ceremony honoring Kristallnacht this evening. The event is described as an "Alternative Kristallnacht Commemoration," and is put on by leftist organization, with minimal attention paid to the mass slaughter of Europe's Jews. The Arab politician may seem an odd choice, particularly in light of her strong insistence that Prime Minister Netanyahu was wrong to draw a connection between Palestinians and the Holocaust, she made her purpose clear by trying to convince the...

    It is up to Israel to display the wit and the will to resist this European pressure, because the Europeans, as with much of what they are doing to themselves and to us, are simply wrong As a million anti-Semitic, anti-Zionist migrants flood Europe they find a host continent in support of their anti-Israel passion. As Jews commemorate Kristallnacht, the Night of Broken Glass, when Nazi brown-shirts burnt Jewish books, burnt down synagogues with Jews inside, and led a boycott against Jewish businesses; European politicians are drafting a plan to stick another Yellow Star on Jewish products from Judea &...

    On the evening of 10 November 1938 many people all over Britain would have sat down, taken a sip of their Bournevita, and with a comfortable sigh, opened their latest issue of Homes and Gardens. Meanwhile in Germany, seven months after the country had invaded Austria, Kristallnacht began – the Night of Broken Glass, when with sickening violence, the Nazis burnt over 1000 synagogues and destroyed 7,000 Jewish businesses throughout Germany and Austria. Ninety-one people were killed by the Stormtroopers and for the first time Jews were arrested on a massive scale and about 30,000 Jewish men were sent to...

    Just as Kristallnacht targeted the Jews of Berlin, the sound of terror and broken glass were the alarm signals to Jews and civilization everywhere For French Jews, January 9, 2015, was Kristallnacht, a seminal watershed of no return. That was the day that the Islamic fever that had infested France and most of Europe turned its fury away from attacking a satirical magazine that poked fun at them to its greatest enemy—Judaism. In Paris, a gunman, linked to the perpetrators of the Charlie Hebdo massacre who had shot a policewoman in the back the previous day, selected a Jewish target...

    Anti-racism activists in Norway have refused to participate in a Holocaust commemoration because members of the Jewish community were also invited to it, according to a Norwegian blog cited by the International Business Times (IBT). According to blog “Norway, Israel and the Jews,” Norwegian organization New SOS Racisme – which claims to act against racism – demanded that the "Zionist Jews of Bergen" be banned from attending the Kristallnacht memorial event held earlier this week. They "refused to participate in the Kristallnacht commemoration since a representative from the Mosaic Congregation [a conservative Jewish Congregation ] was invited. Yes, they balked...

    It seems hard to believe that racist demonstrations, verging on riots in some places, could take place today in America with no intervention from the authorities, but that is exactly what happened in cities across country in the wake of Israel’s defensive actions against Islamist rocket attacks from Gaza.   In Boston anti-Semitic chants such as "Jews back to Birkenau" and "Drop dead, you Zionazi whores" were followed by assaults on Jews and pro-Israel demonstrators.  One of the assaulted students, Chloe Valdary, a University of New Orleans senior, pressed charges with the Boston Police Department against a woman for...

    It's here. Kristallnacht, literally, "Night of Crystal," is often referred to as the "Night of Broken Glass." The name refers to the wave of violent anti-Jewish pogroms which took place on November 9 and 10, 1938, throughout Germany, annexed Austria, and in areas of the Sudetenland in Czechoslovakia recently occupied by German troops. Instigated primarily by Nazi Party officials and members of the SA (Sturmabteilungen: literally Assault Detachments, but commonly known as Storm Troopers) and Hitler Youth, Kristallnacht owes its name to the shards of shattered glass that lined German streets in the wake of the pogrom—broken glass from the...

    To embrace the Muslim Brotherhood is to endorse a direct descendant of the Nazi Party. As the military (with the support of secular groups that don’t want an Islamist state) battles the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and Americans argue over how to react, we should look back at history to understand why we should support the military as the lesser of two evils and hope for its success. Those who know the history of the Muslim Brotherhood and see the murderous attacks it has launched on the homes, businesses, schools, and churches of Coptic Christians, who represent about 10 percent...

    I will not address the scientific grounds for circumcision (which among other things drastically reduces the transmission of infections including AIDS), because your decree has nothing to do with science. Rather, as Heinrich Heine wrote in 1844 of your city of Cologne, Dummheit und Bosheitbuhltenhier GleichHunden auf freierGasse; Die Enkelbruterkennt man nochheut An ihremJudenhasse. (Stupidity and evil mated here / Like dogs in the open gutter / You still can recognize their descendants today / By their Jew-hatred).

    Seekers of peace and social justice should take note of today's 100th birthday celebration of the life of German theologian and Nazi resister Dietrich Bonhoeffer. As much as anyone - and as early as anyone - Bonhoeffer spoke out against the wickedness of Adolf Hitler's regime and took some of the most significant actions to thwart it. It was Bonhoeffer and a small circle of Lutheran ministers who first condemned the virulent anti-Semitism and reawakened militarism in Germany. It was Bonhoeffer who most loudly denounced his country's suicidal summons for war. It was Bonhoeffer who attacked the timidity of German...

    Once again, the real news in France is conveniently not being reported as it should. To give you an idea of what’s going on in France where there are now between 5 and 6 million Muslims and about 600,000 Jews, here is an email that came from a Jew living in France. Will the world say nothing – again – as it did in Hitler’s time? “I am a Jew — therefore I am forwarding this to everyone on all my e-mail lists. I will not sit back and do nothing. Nowhere have the flames of anti-Semitism burned more furiously...

    Germany on Wednesday marked the 73rd anniversary of the Nazi pogrom that paved the way to the Holocaust with solemn ceremonies throughout the country and the opening of a new synagogue. The Kristallnacht pogrom, also known as the Night of Broken Glass, saw Nazi thugs plunder Jewish businesses throughout Germany, torch about 300 synagogues and round up some 30,000 Jewish men for deportation to concentration camps. Chancellor Angela Merkel called November 9, 1938 a "day of shame". "Germans hunted Germans because they were Jews," she told a conference in Berlin. ... Before 1933, Germany had one of Europe's strongest Jewish...

    Turning Three By Ari Bussel Starting Year Four, that is quite an achievement. Unexpectedly it has arrived. I had not noticed it before, but it coincides directly with the Jewish New Year. So we celebrate. Over time we were delisted at some locations while others were added. Our readership grew, and depending on extraneous events, like waves our words spread and then contracted, almost with predictable regularity. Some “regulars,” wrote to us directly or posted comments on websites where the Postcards appear. Along with others we read and consider what is being said, although we rarely respond, after learning long...

    One of the fiercest gun-control advocates in Congress, Rep. Carolyn McCarthy (D-N.Y.), pounced on the shooting massacre in Tucson Sunday, promising to introduce legislation as soon as Monday. McCarthy ran for Congress after her husband was gunned down and her son seriously injured in a shooting in 1993 on a Long Island commuter train. Pennsylvania Rep. Robert Brady, a Democrat from Philadelphia, told CNN that he also plans to take legislative action. He will introduce a bill that would make it a crime for anyone to use language or symbols that could be seen as threatening or violent against a...
