The Jewish community of Greece protested Friday after an arson attack against the only synagogue on the Island of Crete, urging the authorities to take measures in order to get rid of “similar phenomenons of anti-Semitism.” According to local police, unknown individuals broke into the Etz-Hayyim synagogue’s yard an hour after midnight and set fire to an outdoor wooden ladder which leads to the library.

Nativist Leader Starts Website to Attack ‘Subversive’ Groups | Hatewatch | Southern Poverty Law Center

A new website purports to expose the machinations of “extremist” organizations that supposedly are trying to stifle debate about immigration. These groups represent “the well-funded far-left anti-enforcement mob that is ‘the other side’ of the majority of Americans,” states the website, Center for Immigration Truth. hat Center for Immigration Truth doesn’t say is that the website is another project of John Tanton, a retired Michigan ophthalmologist who in many ways has been primary architect of the contemporary nativist movement. Tanton, who has a long history of bigotry and racist associations that has been documented by the Southern Poverty Law Center, is the registrant and administrator of the website, according to the Public Interest Registry database. The address in the registry is that of Tanton’s Social Contract Press, which publishes a quarterly journal featuring articles by prominent white supremacists. (The Social Contract Press is listed as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center, or SPLC.) The website launched several months ago with the motto “monitoring the subversive La Raza open borders network.” (The National Council of La Raza is a major Latino advocacy group that actually has supported several recent immigration enforcement measures.)

Transit attack linked to white supremacists

The man accused in a scary attack on a C-Train driver is linked to a local white supremacist group, according to sources. The 22-year-old was arrested after a four-year transit veteran was chased by a knife-wielding man, narrowly escaping injury when he ran into a train cab and locked himself inside early Monday morning. The man now charged in the attack is said to be an associate or member of the Aryan Guard, sources confirmed.

John Richard Marleau — a white supremacist who has attended most of the neo-Nazi group’s events, though he claims not to be an official member — faces multiple charges in connection with an attempted stabbing this week on a Calgary city train (CTrain). According to a city of Calgary news release, the incident occurred shortly before 1:30 a.m. on Jan. 4, when an emergency button was activated on a CTrain. After being told that the button had been pressed accidentally, the driver stopped the train and left his cab to deactivate the button. As he entered the center car, a knife-wielding man darted toward him. With his would-be attacker in pursuit, the driver ran back to his cab, locked himself inside, and called law enforcement. When police caught up with the suspect at a train platform nearby, Marleau allegedly removed the knife from his jacket and waved it in front of him. After he refused to drop the knife, police subdued him with a Taser and took him into custody.

More Connections Found Between Tea Partiers, Minutemen, and White Supremacy

A recent English newscast produced by Al Jazeera draws solid connections between white supremacists, anti-immigration activists, and Tea Party protesters. The program, called White Power USA, was produced by journalists Rick Rowley and Jacquie Soohen in an effort to find out if the election of biracial president Barak Obama has fueled Nazi efforts in the United States. Together, Rowley and Soohen travel from skinhead thrash concerts to secluded areas of the Arizona desert, meeting with various members of the National Alliance, an admitted Nazi group. But more interesting is the fact that the National Alliance and other white nationalist groups have clearly used discontent with Obama’s policies to subtly recruit new members.

White Power USA: Neo Nazis in America Gearing Up To Fight “Racial Holy War”

As the People of the United States are taught to fear nebulous dark skin terrorists hailing from far away lands who work feverishly to attack the precious freedoms of America, most are oblivious to the fact that it is the terrorists of White Extremism who are gaining a dangerous foothold in our culture- under the radar and right in our own backyards. The blinding extremism, ignorance, violent intent and hatred is as rampant- or more rampant- through the White Supremacists, as the worse we hear about the nefarious “Muslim Terrorists” who are consistently portrayed by our media as a threat to our “freedom” and “safety”. All the while, our media continuously ignores the fact that racially and religiously motivated crimes have risen exponentially since the election of President Barack Obama. Last spring, a U.S. Department of Homeland security report warned that Right Wing extremists are now “the most dangerous domestic terrorist threat in the United States”.

Not what you would think; this is actually a special agent who worked undercover to get the goods on the white supremacist movement. Bart McEntire was with the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms. Are racist white Americans a threat to the country’s security? Experts say the answer is yes. It was only last spring when the U.S. Homeland Security Department issued a report cautioning that Rightwing extremists are now, “The most dangerous domestic terrorism threat in the United States”{1} . The report by U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano offended veterans and she ultimately issued an apology, but the point had been made{2}. As Al Jazeera shows us in the video below, a pair of filmmakers, Rick Rowley and Jacquie Soohen took their camera inside the white nationalist movement to investigate. The results are chilling. Bart McEntire was a Special Agent with the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms. He says the nation’s current economic picture, the mere fact that Obama is a black President, and a Democratically controlled Congress, are factors fueling the fires of racist sentiment in the U.S.{3} . He says that the problems posed by white racists could quickly spiral out of control. “The numbers might be small in the U.S. but you know there is an event sitting out there that could spark the movement and all of a sudden you would see those numbers increase exponentially.”

Eastern Europe Jews urge antisemitism fight

The World Congress of Russian-speaking Jews urged action to fight Holocaust denial and antisemitism in former Soviet republics in a conference in Berlin last month. At issue is the alleged glorification of wartime Nazi collaborators, rehabilitated today as nationalist heroes, particularly in Estonia, Lithuania, Latvia and Ukraine, charged Boris Shpigel, president of the WCRJ. Some critics have said that Russia is trying to whitewash its own past, while criticising its former satellites. But Mr Shpigel, who is a deputy in the Russian Parliament, countered that there are genuine reasons to be concerned about rising nationalism in eastern Europe. In two resolutions, representatives urged a halt to historical revisionism and Holocaust denial, to the “downplaying of the crucial role of the Soviet Union’s victory over Nazi Germany and attempts… to equate Soviet and Nazi regimes”. The conference drew 500 guests from 28 countries, including many former Soviet veterans of World War II, quite a few of whom now live in Israel.

Death of accused Holocaust museum shooter leave some frustrated he won’t stand trial

The death of a white supremacist accused of opening fire at the Holocaust museum has left some conflicted — not sorry he’s gone, but frustrated that he won’t stand trial. The 89-year-old James von Brunn, who faced charges that could have earned him the death penalty, died Wednesday at a North Carolina federal prison while awaiting trial. Authorities say von Brunn walked up to the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum on June 10 carrying a vintage rifle and shot Stephen T. Johns, who was black, as the guard was opening the door for him. Von Brunn was shot in the face by return fire.

Von Brunn reportedly had chronic heart disease and was struggling with several issues at the time of his death. He claimed he shot the man at the Holocaust museum to stop what he viewed as a Jewish takeover of the world. The shooting that he was involved where he killed the security guard at the museum commemorating the Holocaust in Washington D.C. caused him great health problems due to the wound that he suffered. Von Brunn actually died at a hospital near the North Carolina prison where he was being help. Public reaction to his death appears to be that it seems to have saved the taxpayers of this nation some money; Radicals React: Holocaust Museum Killer Was a Hero (or a Patsy). White supremacists reacted swiftly to the death of Holocaust Museum shooter and long-time neo-Nazi James von Brunn by lauding his actions and promoting conspiracy theories about his demise. (…) On Stormfront, the leading white supremacist Web forum, posters speculated this afternoon that von Brunn might not have died of natural causes, suggesting that evil forces were actually responsible for his demise. “I knew that case would never go to trial,” wrote “LawAbidingCitizen.” “There were so many holes in the ‘official’ story that it would have been a laughingstock.” Added “MedicineHat”: “Sounds like a clear cut case of ‘Jewicide.’” Many others praised him as a hero. “James Wenneker Von [sic] Brunn died a martyr,” wrote “starviego.” “Long live James Wenneker Von Brunn.” Said “allkesh”: “Great man who gave his best for his people!” “Kennewickman,” a Stormfront moderator, put it like this: “Every man or woman who expresses opposition to ZOG [a neo-Nazi acronym for Zionist Occupation Government, meaning the federal government] and dies in ZOG’s hands is a martyr, automatically.” Not everyone was so enamored, however. “He was an idiot, a crazed old kook,” wrote “Notakook.” “His actions might as well be scripted in Hollywood: ‘Mean, hateful, old racist, Jew hater, evil NAZI attacks Holocaust Museum. Honest, Black African American doorman/security guard is murdered!’ Yeah, that’s really a heroic act, really helps our ‘movement.’ We have to find things for our old men to do that do not involve military invasions of museums!
