A poll published Wednesday showed a quarter of Germans believe there were at least some positive aspects to Nazi rule – a finding that comes after a popular talk show host was fired for praising Nazi Germany’s attitude toward motherhood.
Pollsters for the Forsa agency, commissioned by the weekly Stern magazine, asked whether National Socialism also had some good sides (such as) the construction of the highway system, the elimination of unemployment, the low criminality rate (and) the encouragement of the family. Forsa said 25 percent responded yes – but 70 percent said no.
A right-wing Jewish extremist has been disseminating calls for the assassination of leftists and Ashkenazim on Internet sites in Israel and abroad.
One film clip posted on YouTube, for instance, declares: “You are about to view a handful of leftist Ashkenazim that Hitler and Eichmann did not manage to incinerate. Before we begin, please remember: 90 percent of the moderate left are Ashkenazim!! 100 percent of the extreme left are Ashkenazim!!”
Next comes a picture of President Shimon Peres with the caption: “The murderer!” It is followed by pictures of Benjamin Netanyahu, Yossi Beilin and other politicians.
The clip concludes: “Now, after you have seen these unclean Ashkenazim, how degraded the Ashkenazi race is, and what a pity it is that Hitler and Eichmann did not finish off the Ashkenazim, I ask of you: Search for information on Google about Stiven Malik; there ‘the document’ awaits you.”
The document in question is also full of incitement to violence: “If only we, too, could finish what Hitler began by destroying all the Ashkenazim, the descendants of the Jews who betrayed Germany.”
As I’ve written many times before, there is little chance that Nazism will rear its ugly head again in Germany. But the Jewish far-right are growing in size and political power within Israel.
And the Jewish state only has itself to blame.
