    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...

    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...

    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...

    This year’s Kristallnacht event in Germany hosts a former German Jew, whose presence inherently connects the pogrom with his known opposition to a Jewish presence in Judea and Samaria and his blame of Israel for “promoting anti-Semitism globally.” In what may signal a desire of Germans to leave the past further behind them, Germany hosted a French-German intellectual – in a church – who fled the Nazi regime in 1933 and did not experience the horrors of the Holocaust but now equates Gaza with a concentration gap. Kristallnacht, or the “night of broken glass,” occurred on this day in 1938,...

On the night of November 9, 1938, synagogues all over Germany were destroyed, the windows of Jewish-owned shops were smashed and the merchandise looted, Jewish schools and community institutions were laid to ruin, and Jewish residents were beaten, arrested, and sometimes killed.

    So, according to Frank Rich of the New York Times, the Tea Party protesters are indulging in a “small-scale mimicry of Kristallnacht.” There is a “tsunami of anger” gathering across the land, he writes, and an “accompanying rise in right-wing extremism”. Well, I detest some of the expressions reported in recent days and I’m hoping the Tea Party movement – where I’ve met many thoughtful, responsible people – will begin a little self-policing. I’m also hoping that the worst sign-carriers will be taken aside and questioned — as I would be willing to bet that some of them are plants,...

    This is the seventieth anniversary of Kristallnacht, the night when the Nazis unleashed a wave of physical violence against German Jews and their enterprises. The name comes from the shattered glass that filled the streets of Jewish neighborhoods, and it made it crystal clear that Hitler fully intended to annihilate the Jews of Germany, and, eventually, everywhere else that he could reach. Even the New York Times, which had a very mixed record on reporting the events of the Holocaust, described it on their front page in terms that left no doubt what was going on: A wave of destruction,...

When the violence ended, at least 96 Jews were dead, 1,300 synagogues and 7,500 businesses destroyed and countless Jewish cemeteries and schools vandalized. A total of 30,000 Jews were rounded up and sent to concentration camps. The broken glass strewn through the streets from the mayhem caused the pogrom to be called "Crystal Night" or Kristallnacht.

    Do Muslims in America lack the conviction of their religion to condemn sacrilege when it is committed by Muslims against others? Imagine if Jewish settlers in the Gaza Strip destroyed two dozen mosques. There would be mass rallies in front of Israeli embassies around the world, and in America organizations like CAIR and MPAC would issue righteous condemnations calling on the American government to restrain Israel. However, as we've seen today, when Palestinians streaming into liberated Gaza set fire to synagogues there is deafening silence from most Muslims and certainly from the leadership of the American Muslim community.

With all due respect, Mr. Molyviatis is way off base. "Remain multiethnic"? Multiethnicity in Kosovo died when President Clinton supported Osama bin Laden's Kosovo Liberation Army, an army of which The Washington Times' own Jerry Seper wrote in May 1999, "Some members of the Kosovo Liberation Army, which has financed its war effort through the sale of heroin, were trained in terrorist camps run by international fugitive Osama bin Laden."

    Kristallnacht Almost immediately upon assuming the Chancellorship of Germany, Hitler began promulgating legal actions against Germany's Jews. In 1933, he proclaimed a one-day boycott against Jewish shops, a law was passed against kosher butchering and Jewish children began experiencing restrictions in public schools. By 1935, the Nuremberg Laws deprived Jews of German citizenship.

    CLEARLY KRUGMANI'm not going to write a National Review Online piece on Paul Krugman's column today -- this particular fly didn't rise to the level of annoyance to justify a full swat. I've already exposed the conflict of interest implicit in a New York Times columnist using op-ed ink to accuse a Times Company competitor, Clear Channel Communications, of political corruption due to its alleged sponsorship of pro-war rallies. And I will quote extensively from several smart takes from around the web today, taking on Krugman from other angles. There's good stuff here. Reader Paul Philp of Radical Results writes,...
