View Full Version : Hahaha, Israel has a neo-Nazi problem

I don't know if these news were already posted somewhere on Skadi, as they aren't brand-new, but they are too good. :D

This is from the Internet news "Israel today":

Neo-Nazis in the Jewish State!

Swastikas on the walls of synagogues and desecrated Jewish graves are anti-Semitic incidents that do not only occur outside of Israel. According to the Information Center for Victims of Anti-Semitism in Israel, more than 500 anti-Semitic incidents were reported over the last three years in the Jewish state!

“It is a sad irony that Jews who immigrated to Israel because of the anti-Semitism in the former Soviet Union are now harassed by anti-Semites here,” Zalman Gilichinsky, the information center’s director, told israel today. “But we have to remember that a full 75 percent of the Russian immigrants arriving in Israel over the past three years are not even Jewish.”

Sieg Heil!

For years, the Israeli government has been ignoring the increasing anti-Semitism in Israel. It was only when the major daily newspapers like Yediot Ahronot and Ha’aretz reported on it that the government started to wake up. For instance, the Attorney General has opened a case against a Russian Internet site called The White Union of Israel, which features a torn Israeli flag and a photo of two youths with their arms raised in a Hitler-style salute. The Russian bookstore chain Arbat is also under investigation for distributing anti-Semitic books in Israel imported from Moscow, including works that “debunk the Holocaust myth.”

Harassment of Russian Jewish Immigrants

The new Israeli anti-Semites are mostly non-Jewish Russian immigrants who were able to immigrate because of a distant Jewish relative or with forged documents claiming to be Jewish. They are either atheists or nominal “Christians.” “They are against Jews, Moslems and foreign workers,” said Gilichinsky.

In 1999, graffiti proclaiming “Death to the Jews, long live Russia—SS” was smeared on the wall of a building in Jerusalem. A year later, when Russia’s soccer team played against Israel in Haifa, spectators could not believe their ears as some Russian immigrants cheered for the opposing team with calls to “strike the Jews.” A local Russian-language newspaper reported that three Russian immigrants were seen with swastikas tattooed on their arms. A Hebrew newspaper told the story of a Russian Jewish immigrant whose non-Jewish Russian neighbors made her life miserable. “It‘s a shame that the fascists in Russia didn’t kill you,” they shouted at her.

No Israeli Identity

In a statement, the Jewish Agency, which is responsible for immigration, admitted that “the majority of Russian immigrants have not integrated into Israeli society.” A survey conducted by Jerusalem’s Hebrew University found that 71 percent of Russian immigrants do not identify as Israelis, and 51 percent are not proficient in Hebrew. On the other hand, the survey found that every fifth soldier in an Israeli combat unit is a new immigrant, and they are held in high esteem by the military.

Can this be Israel? Israel’s neo-Nazis are non-Jews who immigrated from the former Soviet Union. One of the youths shown here is wearing an Israeli army uniform.

Israel checks out website run by Russian racists

By Chris McGreal in Jerusalem, Wednesday June 25, 2003

The Israeli attorney general has launched a criminal investigation into a local neo-Nazi website that jokes about gas chambers, advocates shooting Palestinians and denies that the Holocaust happened.

The website, published in Russian by a group calling itself the White Israeli Union is believed to be the work of immigrants from the former Soviet Union who claimed to be Jews when they entered Israel but who are blamed for the sharp rise in anti-semitism and advocacy of white supremacy.

Among other things, the site encourages readers to join an Israeli army combat unit to kill Arabs. Its pictures include one of a man in Israeli military uniform with his arm raised in the Hitler salute.

The website says it is run by "Ilya from Haifa and Andrei from Arad", who describe themselves as "people who have pride in themselves and are sick of living among the dirty bastards".

They have drawn up a list of "enemies" collectively derided as "black arses". They include Jews, Arabs, foreign workers and, tellingly, immigrants from Muslim republics of the former Soviet Union.

About a million Russians and others from former Soviet states have emigrated to Israel over the past 10 years. It is an open secret that many have only distant ties to Judaism and some bought forged birth certificates with Jewish names to escape the collapsing Soviet Union. The Israeli government, desperate for new immigrants to counter the burgeoning Palestinian population, turned a blind eye.

But the recent immigration has also brought a novel form of anti-semitism with the appearance of graffiti in public places such as: "The end of the Jews is near." Swastikas have been painted on walls in Russian-speaking neighbourhoods of Jerusalem and other Israeli towns.

One Russian immigrant, Rabbi Zalman Gilichinsky, was so disturbed after spotting young skinheads sporting swastikas, that he launched a campaign for action by the government which he says "campaigns against anti-semitism in Ukraine, Zimbabwe and the Bahamas, but ignores it at home".

He said: "In every city in Israel they have these anti-semitic groups. They're mostly young kids. I blame the government because they encouraged immigration by families who have no feeling toward Judaism or Israel.

"Many new immigrants to Israel have found to their horror that they encounter anti-semitic harassment and humiliation from non-Jews who arrived from the former USSR. They had hoped to escape anti-semitism, or at least to be protected from it, when they came to Israel." Among the White Israeli Union website's most controversial claims is that Hitler's Nuremberg laws were merely based on Jewish religious law in defining race.

Crude "humour" on the website includes jokes about the extermination camps of the Nazis and a list of "rules of behaviour" which warns all readers not to be miserly "because a miser is a Zhid". Zhid is a derogatory Russian word for Jew. The attorney general's office said that the website was being investigated for racism, for incitement to violence and for Holocaust denial.

Now that's something you wouldn't expect :P

Reminds me of a case where a "'Dutch' skinhead" shot at some Moroccans and then fled to Israel.
