Lawyers want bombing suspects moved

Posted on

Lawyers for two alleged White supremacists charged in a 2004 bombing that injured a Black city official in Scottsdale want their clients moved from a county jail to a federal prison because they say the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office violated their rights. Twin brothers Dennis and Daniel Mahon are being held at the county’s Fourth Avenue jail. The brothers are charged in a bombing on Feb. 26, 2004, when a package detonated in the hands of Don Logan, Scottsdale’s diversity director at the time, injuring his hand and arm and hurting a secretary. Dennis Mahon’s lawyer, Deborah Williams, said in a court filing Dec. 11 that sheriff’s deputies have repeatedly denied her client access to pertinent documents in his case and violated attorney-client privilege by reading them. (…) Authorities found assault weapons, hundreds of rounds of ammunition and White supremacist material in the home

Blood and Honour plant ‘We Are Back’-concert

Posted on

De neonazi-organisatie Blood and Honour Vlaanderen plant komend weekend ergens in België een ‘We Are Back’-concert. Dat meldt De Morgen. Eind vorige week raakte nog bekend dat het federaal parket drie leden van de extreemrechtse organisatie wil vervolgen op basis van de racismewet. Op 2 februari verschijnen drie Blood and Honourverdachten voor de raadkamer van Veurne. Ze riskeren maximaal een jaar cel. Het trio maakt deel uit van de ‘traditionele tak’ van Blood and Honour Vlaanderen, die tegenover de hardere afscheuringen als Combat 18 of het ter ziele gegane Bloed, Bodem, Eer en Trouw staat. Ook de organisatoren van het aankomende ‘We Are Back Event’ zouden deel uitmaken van die traditionele tak.

Prvnízprávy.cz: Czech neo-Nazis training assassins

Posted on

The analytical section of the League against Anti-semitism (Liga proti antisemismu – LPA) says it has discovered an instruction portal on the web called Zone18 that is accessible to members of neo-Nazi organizations. The professional site was launched at the start of December 2009. “The LPA analytical section is a group of our co-workers who perform their activity in total anonymity. They never participate in our public actions, they don’t speak to the media,” LPA chair Věra Tydlitátová said in an interview for Prvnizpravy.cz. The LPA has delivered information on the website to Deputy Interior Minister Col. Jiří Komorous. Prvnizpravy.cz reports that he has submitted the information to the Organized Crime Detection Unit. The Zone18 portal contains a number of instruction manuals for terrorist groups and individuals. Materials entitled “Preparing Assassins” describe how to dispose of people: “… once the gunman is a few meters away from the victim, he then shoots him dead. On a busy street, no one will notice anything suspicious. The victim, collapsed on the ground, may just look like someone in temporary discomfort to passers-by,” says the manual. The instructions list many other approaches to murder. “Poison can get into the victim’s body orally, with his food, or can be absorbed through the skin when mixed into cosmetics. The recommended method is to use poison as an auxiliary to causing the victim’s death by other means. Stabbing the victim with a poisoned knife basically increases the possibility of his potential death even if the wound itself is not fatal,” the instruction manual says. The instructions for producing Molotov cocktails are very detailed and are almost identical to manuals which have appeared on other neo-Nazi portals in the past. It is more than likely that the perpetrators of the arson attack in Vítkov last spring drew on information from these sources. Prvnizpravy.cz reports that the text entitled “Partisan Experience” was allegedly developed by a former member of a WWII-era rebel group and describes armed warfare in natural settings. The neo-Nazis express their thanks to the author for providing the information.

Neo-Nazis launch web plot to attack Republican march in Glasgow – The Daily Record

Posted on

A MOB of English neo-Nazi thugs plan to battle Irish republicans on the streets of Glasgow. The football hooligans, right wingers and loyalists, under the Scottish Defence League banner, have secret plans to cause chaos at a march next week to mark the 38th anniversary of the Derry Bloody Sunday massacre. A Sunday Mail investigation has revealed that SDL yobs aim to attack marchers from Irish republican groups on Sunday. SDL fanatics were forced out of Glasgow in November after failing to stoke racial hatred. Hundreds of police hemmed in around 70 racists and BNP thugs as they met at a city centre pub after failing to march on the central mosque.

The fate of blacks in Nazi Germany

Posted on

During the Third Reich, Germany had a small black community, yet relatively little is known about their life in the Nazi era. Deutsche Welle takes a look at survival strategies under Hitler’s oppressive regime. Between 20,000 – 25,000 blacks lived in Nazi Germany under Hitler’s rule.When asked about blacks in the Third Reich, Germans are most likely to talk about the Afrika Schau. In his book, “Hitler’s Black Victims,” American University researcher, Dr. Clarence Lusane writes that the Africa Schau was a traveling show that began in 1936. The show’s owners were Juliette Tipner, whose mother was from Liberia and her white husband, Adolph Hillerkus. The aim of their spectacle was to showcase African culture in Germany. In 1940, the Afrika Schau was taken over by the SS and Joseph Goebbels who “were hoping that it would become useful not only for propaganda and ideological purposes but also as a way to gather all the blacks in the country under one tent,” writes Lusane. For blacks who joined the Afrika Schau, it became a means of survival in Nazi Germany.

Swedish suspect in Auschwitz theft speaks out

Posted on

“I was asked if I wanted to take the sign from one location to another,” Anders Hoegstroem, 34, a former Swedish neo-Nazi, told tabloid Aftonbladet. “We had a person who was willing to pay several millions (of kronor, or hundreds of thousands of dollars/euros) for the sign,” he said. A Swede who admitted taking part in planning the theft of the infamous Nazi German “Arbeit Macht Frei” sign from Auschwitz spoke out in the Swedish media Friday, appearing with his name and photograph. Anders Hoegstroem, 34, a former Swedish neo-Nazi, said he was supposed to act as an intermediary to pick up the sign and sell it to a buyer, but in the end he wound up informing Polish police about the people behind the plot.

Posted on

Am Abend des 9. Januars fand in Dortmund-Dorstfeld ein Konzert mit vier bekannten Neonazi-Bands statt. Etwa 200 Rechte feierten ungestört im Vereinsheim der Kleingartenanlage “Im Wiesengrund” in der westlichen Innenstadt – und das offenbar nicht zum ersten Mal. “Bis in die frühen Morgenstunden wurde im Kameradenkreis gefeiert, alte Kontakte gepflegt und neue geknüpft. Erneut wurde unter Beweis gestellt, dass sich politischer Aktivismus und nationale Konzerte nicht ausschließen, sondern in Einklang gebracht werden können!”, so berichten Dortmunder Neonazis auf ihrer Internetseite. “Hängt dem Adolf Hitler den Nobelpreis um” Als “Headliner” spielte mit “Radikahl” eine der ältesten und bekanntesten RechtsRock-Bands Deutschlands, berüchtigt für ihr regelmäßig live vom Publikum eingefordertes “Hakenkreuz”-Lied mit der Text-Zeile “Hängt dem Adolf Hitler den Nobelpreis um”. Daneben traten die aus der Region kommenden “Angry Bootboys” und die aus dem Hunsrück kommende Formation “Breakdown”, sowie “Twelve Golden Years” auf.
