  • Anti-Semitic riots in France

    I know Nazi comparisons are frowned upon online for good reason, but this really reminds me of Kristallnacht.

    AFAIK nobody died, the French government isn't complicit (quite the opposite) and Kristallnacht was well organized whereas this is just another day at the office for the average French "youth".

      I mean the literal meaning of "night of broken glass", obviously there are plenty of differences.

        Yeah, like how the Nazis were white people who admired Arab anti-semites, whereas this is more arabs who admire white anti-semites.

        (Hey, French Jews, how's that whole 'encouraging multiculturalism and mass immigration' thing working out for you?)

              France bans collecting racial statistics so there's no way to know if the US is the same or worse. The US does take law enforcement more seriously than France though. If the US had france's disregard for criminal rioting it would probably be a third world country by now.

                Iran Supreme Leader: The Only Solution For Crisis Is Israel’s Destruction

                http://dailycaller.com/2014/07/23/ir...#ixzz38OmharLD

                Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, stated on Wednesday that the only solution for the region is the destruction of Israel, and that the armed confrontation must expand beyond Gaza.

                Meanwhile, revolutionary guards announced new missiles which could destroy Israel’s Iron Dome missile defense system.
                Is all out war far off?

                  Here's a good New York Times article from today that puts this into a wider perspective; one in which anti-Semitism is becoming more socially acceptable in Europe.

                    With Europe still shaking from a populist backlash against fiscal austerity, some Jews speak of feeling politically isolated, without an ideological home. Many left-wing political parties are anti-Israel. Many right-wing parties, some with anti-Semitic origins, are extremist and virulently anti-immigrant. And many Jews who have voted with the Socialist Party in France and Belgium worry that those parties are weak and becoming more dependent on fast-growing Muslim voting blocs.

                    ...

                    “We are a microcosm of the Middle East,” said Philip Carmel, European policy director for the European Jewish Congress. “The Middle East is being imported into Europe.”
                    "Is being imported." Thank you for reminding me once again why I don't feel any sympathy for these people.

                    An early sign that these broader resentments were morphing into more open expressions of anti-Semitism came with the emergence several years ago of Dieudonné M’bala M’bala, a French comedian who lashed out at Jews and played down the Holocaust. He has since allied himself with Jean-Marie Le Pen, the 86-year-old founder of the far-right National Front, who this summer used an apparently anti-Semitic pun, which alluded to Nazi crematories, as a riposte to a Jewish critic. Many of the comedian’s shows have since been banned in France, but his popularity has continued to rise, unnerving many Jews.
                    Turns out suppressing free speech wasn't such a great idea huh?

                    a voice on the intercom of a commuter train that announced a stop as "Auschwitz" and ordered all Jews to get off.
                    Looks like the 4chan generation is finally reaching adulthood.
