Menachem Z. Rosensaft: A´Neo-Nazi Beauty Pageant – Nefarious Glorification of Anti-Semitism at its Worst


Menachem Z. Rosensaft: A neo-Nazi beauty pageant – nefarious glorification of anti-Semitism at its worst

20 Oct 2014

The following article was first published by the ‘Huffington Post’.

One of the most insidious, and perhaps ultimately one of the most dangerous, manifestations of neo-Nazi resurgence may well be its steady subversive infiltration of contemporary popular and consumer culture.

Rabidly bigoted – anti-Semitic, anti-Roma, generally xenophobic – modern day neo-Nazi parties and movements such as Jobbik in Hungary and Golden Dawn in Greece are relatively easy to identify and fight through political, judicial and legislative means. They are the violent heirs of the Nazi Brown Shirts, the SA, who terrorized non-fascist Germans throughout much of the 1920’s and early 1930’s as part of Hitler’s rise to eventual absolute power.

Then there are the more nuanced modern-day fascists such as Marine Le Pen’s Front National in France who combine reactionary views with a calculated strategic effort to make themselves appear more palatable to the political mainstream, often with frightening success. Still, these ultra-right wing extremist movements and parties are relatively easy to identify and expose for what they are – at the end of the day they leave little to the imagination. Bigotry, after all, remains bigotry regardless of any intellectual or dialectic attempts to legitimize the preying on fears and often deep-seated prejudices.

But below the radar screen, there are nefarious attempts to legitimize Nazism and all that Nazism stood for in the popular psyche under the guise of cutting edge fashion, perverse home decoration, and even crass, prurient sexual exploitation. Among some of the more egregious recent examples are:

  • The peddling of silver ‘Swastika Rings’ on Sears’ online Marketplace that “are going to make you look beautiful at your next dinner date.” Faced with consumer outrage, Sears quickly yanked this example of what had been described as “gothic jewelry” and removed the offending vendor from its site.

  • The sale on the Walmart, Sears’ and Amazon websites of a “home decoration” poster featuring the “Arbeit Macht Frei” (“Work makes you free”) gate of the Dachau concentration camp. All three retailers pulled this item after their attention was called to it. “We were horrified to see that this item was on our site,” declared Walmart. “We sincerely apologize, and worked quickly to remove it.”

  • The Spanish retail clothing chain Zara was forced to apologize for marketing a striped concentration-camp-like tee shirt complete with a six-pointed yellow star. For what it’s worth, Zara had previously sold handbags embossed with swastikas. Lovely.

The latest, and possibly the most nausea-inducing example of this particular fad is an ever so sexy beauty pageant out of the former Soviet Union. Before it was apparently suspended by the Russian social media site Vkontakte, a page on that website solicited women who consider themselves Nazis to submit photos of themselves and statements on precisely why they admire Hitler.

To be eligible, according to the contest’s rules, a contestant had to be, among other things, “a woman Nazi” and “a woman who hates Jews.”

Among the entries are sultry Ekaterina Matveeva from St. Petersburg, Russia, who proclaims that “Adolf Hitler’s position is genius and true, that races are different not only in appearance, but also in intelligence,” and Katya Shkredova from Mogilev, Belarus, who “adores Adolf” and loves his willingness to “experiment on people.”

The winner of this revolting pageant was to be crowned Miss Ostland – the name given by the Nazis to the German occupation regime for the territory covering Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia and part of what is today western Belarus – and receive a piece of jewelry featuring one of the Nordic runes that were popular with Heinrich Himmler and his SS. Second prize: a pendant with the German Iron Cross.

Granted, there is no indication that this particular beauty contest ever had a mass or even large-scale following. Nevertheless, it is a timely and potent reminder that neo-Nazism in its vilest form is enjoying a significant revival among at least some segments of society, and the Vkontakte page in question purportedly did have more than 7,000 Russian and Ukrainian followers.

In Kentucky, a white supremacist write-in candidate named Robert Edward Ransdell who is running for the US Senate is posting signs proclaiming “With Jews We Lose” that leave little to the imagination. Ransdell also took advantage of an invitation to participate in the University of Kentucky’s Constitution Week to spew his anti-Semitic bile to college and high school students.

And in Sydney, Australia, a neo-Nazi group is sending out flyers declaring that “It’s time for all White Australians to stop being blinded by political correctness and Jewish lies about equality, multiculturalism and the need for so called diversity. Diversity really means white genocide.”

To be sure, much of the virulent present-day anti-Semitism emanates from Radical Islamic and leftist pro-Palestinian sources. But these are increasingly finding disturbing common ground with the extreme right.

Cries of “Gas the Jews” are suddenly being heard once more in demonstrations in Germany and elsewhere. “The fear is that now things are blatantly being said openly, and no one is batting an eyelid,” Jessica Frommer, who works for a nonprofit organization in Brussels, told the New York Times. “Modern Europe is based on stopping what happened in the Second World War. And now 70 years later, people standing near the European Parliament are shouting, ‘Death to Jews!’ “

As Ronald S. Lauder, the president of the World Jewish Congress, has emphasized, the prevailing atmosphere in which anti-Semitism has become acceptable empowers other equally odious manifestations of bigotry. “When hundreds of thousands of Christians – men, women and children – are killed, this isn’t war,” he declared at a recent gathering of Evangelical Christians in Jerusalem. “This is genocide. And we Jews know what happens when the world is silent to genocide.”

“Anti-Semitism has always been, historically, the inability to make space for differences among people, which is the essential foundation of a free society,” Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks, emeritus chief rabbi of the United Hebrew Congregations of the British Commonwealth, wrote in the Wall Street Journal. “That is why the politics of hate now assaults Christians, Bahai, Yazidis and many others, including Muslims on the wrong side of the Sunni/Shia divide, as well as Jews. To fight it, we must stand together, people of all faiths and of none. The future of freedom is at stake, and it will be the defining battle of the 21st century.”

As we approach the 70th anniversary of the end of the Holocaust and the liberation of the Nazi death and concentration camps by Allied troops, we must bear in mind that while the Third Reich was defeated at the end of World War II, the ideology that made possible the genocide of European Jewry is very much alive throughout much of the supposedly civilized world. We ignore or dismiss its presence in our midst at our peril.

Menachem Z. Rosensaft is general counsel of the World Jewish Congress and teaches about the law of genocide and war crimes trials at the laws school of Columbia and Cornell Universities. He is the editor of ‘God, Faith & Identity from the Ashes: Reflections of Children and Grandchildren of Holocaust Survivors’ (Jewish Lights Publishing), available December 2014

Fear of a Fat Planet: Nearly a Third of the World Population Is Now Overweight


r of a Fat Planet: Nearly a Third of the World Population Is Now Overweight

A new study shows the scale of the global obesity crisis.

The Global Obesity Crisis: Nearly a Third of the World Population Is Now Overweight

May 30, 2014

There are 1.35 billion people living in China, another 1.23 billion living in India. The world’s two most populous nations are each home to a crush of humanity that’s almost impossible to comprehend. But those numbers pale next to the overweight people who live in the world today—2.1 billion, or nearly a third of the world’s population.

The numbers come from a study published yesterday in the journal The Lancet. Researchers looked at 1,700 studies from 188 countries conducted between 1988 and 2013 in order to come up with a comprehensive view of what’s a truly global obesity epidemic.

However, it wasn’t North America—where Mexico and the United States have vied for the title of the fattest nation in the world—that registered the highest obesity rate. Rather, the Middle East and North Africa are the worst; nearly 60 percent of men and 65 percent of women are too heavy. The study says the U.S. is home to 13 percent of the world’s overweight population, the highest percentage of any country.

The sky-high rates in North Africa and the Middle East may come as a shock in the West, where public health stories from the Arab-speaking world can’t break through the wall of coverage of American invasions, oil, revolution, civil war, and military coups. If anything, most of the region borders the Mediterranean, which is most famous in dieting circles as a way to eat a healthy diet heavy in plants, seafood, and the occasional glass of red wine. Even if there’s less wine consumed with dinner in these predominately Muslim countries, they still consume a whole lot of olive oil. But the red flags have been flying for decades, however, and a combination of urbanization, globalization, and regional cultural norms has created a massive public health crisis.

In 2001, a study published in The Journal of Nutrition looked at the obesity rates in Morocco and Tunisia and found that while their governments were still working to address issues of malnutrition and micronutrient deficiencies, the waistlines of women in both countries were expanding at an unhealthy rate. Public health officials were doing little at the time to address the problem, according to the researchers, “especially since female fatness is viewed as a sign of social status and is a cultural symbol of beauty, fertility and prosperity.” With more people living in urban areas, where processed foods were cheap and easily accessible, issues like malnutrition were steadily being alleviated. But the study goes on to say that, “Western culinary influences lead to new consumption patterns, which affect dietary habits and even the rhythm of consumption.” The study continues, “These new dietary habits have created conditions for chronic diseases like obesity and diabetes to take hold.”

Elsewhere in the region, especially in oil-rich countries, diet trends have followed a similar course. In Saudi Arabia, meat consumption increased by 500 percent between 1973 and 1980, according to a 2011 article in The Journal of Obesity. Changes weren’t as dramatic in less wealthy nations, but the same paper notes that people in Jordan nearly doubled how much meat they ate over the same period, and that the percentage of calories consumed as fat by children in Lebanon increased from 24 percent to 34 percent between 1963 and 1998.

Wealth and development can change diet and health by increasing the amount of meat used in regional cuisines—but American-style dining also seems to crop up in emerging markets around the world, and the Middle East in no exception. Just as global fashion brands and, more recently (and disastrously), institutions like New York University, have tried to catch some of the shimmer of the Gulf’s oil wealth, so have fast-food companies.

This $1,000 McDonald’s-Inspired Dress Is About More Than Income Inequality

“Demand for fast casual dining, which includes the more traditional fast-food chains such as McDonald’s as well as the table service brands like IHOP, is growing amid a rise in disposable income, extravagant shopping malls, and a seemingly unquenchable appetite for Western food concepts,” reads a 2012 trend story on the website Arabian Business. The article cites a study from the research firm Euromonitor that predicts the fast-casual dining in the United Arab Emirates will expand from $6.4 billion in 2011 to $8.7 billion in 2015. Burger chains are expected to propel the boom.

And just as meat consumption has increased across the region, so has the saturation of fast-food brands. The trade website Food Business Africa points out that the demographics across the Middle East and North Africa present an ideal market for fast-food companies: Huge populations of young people who have “grown up eating processed foods and dining in Western-style fast-food restaurants and coffee shops.” For the youth in this region—and around the world, for that matter—drive-through hamburgers are as much of a birthright as for kids in the U.S.

American-style fast food is no longer a foreign novelty, and neither is American-style obesity.

Moslemversammlung Norwegens fordert Steinigung von Ehebrecherinnen und Homosexuellen


Moslemversammlung Norwegens fordert einhellig Steinigung von Ehebrecherinnen und Homosexuellen

katholisches.info/2013/11/groesste-moslemversammlung-norwegens-fordert-steinigung-von-ehebrecherinnen-und-homosexuellen

(Oslo) Ein Video zeigt die größte bisher stattgefundene islamische Versammlung in Norwegen, mit der die Moslems eine eigene Vertretung im Parlament forderten. Die Versammlung stimmte einhellig für die Steinigung von Frauen, die des Ehebruchs beschuldigt werden, und für die Steinigung von Homosexuellen.
Der Vorfall geht bereits auf den vergangenen März zurück, wurde aber erst jetzt bekannt. Das Video zeigt nicht irgendwelche Untergrundmoslems in einem verborgenen Keller, die sich der staatlichen Autorität entziehen. Ganz im Gegenteil. Das Video zeigt die Versammlung eines offiziellen Islamzentrums in der norwegischen Hauptstadt Oslo. Dort hatte sich nicht klammheimlich eine verbotene Islamistengruppe getroffen. Die Filmaufnahmen zeigen eine reguläre Versammlung ganz normaler in Norwegen lebender Moslems, von denen viele bereits die norwegische Staatsbürgerschaft besitzen. An der dreitägigen Versammlung mit dem Titel Peace Conference Scandinavia 2013 von Islam Net nahmen vom 23.-25. März insgesamt rund 4000 Moslems teil…

Is There An Association Of Lyme Disease With Autism Spectrum Disorder?


Is There An Association Of Lyme Disease

With Autism Spectrum Disorder?

By Catherine J. Frompovich

According to research and resulting protocols from Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt, MD, PhD, who has licenses to practice medicine in European Union countries and also in the United States, 98% of children on the autism spectrum have confirmed Lyme disease as per PCR (polymerase chain reaction) [1] testing.

I spent close to an hour trying to listen to Dr. Klinghardt’s video discussion regarding his findings, but I have problems with my Microsoft Operating System insofar as what it doesn’t want me to see or hear, I get interferences, and the sound for that video was not very loud even though I had it at 100%.  So, if I mistakenly report something you find Doctor said differently, please understand why, as it was at times almost…

Die entscheidende Frage: Wird es ein Junge oder Mädchen? Abtreiben, bis es ein Junge wird Doku


Die entscheidende Frage: Wird es ein Junge oder Mädchen?

Panorama TV-Dokumentation
Solange abtreiben, bis ein Junge geboren wird
Veröffentlicht am 11.11.2015 | Lesedauer: 5 Minuten
Von Kathrin Rosendorff

Die entscheidende Frage: Wird es ein Junge oder Mädchen?
Quelle: ZDF und Rafael Ben-Ari
Schwanger mit einem Mädchen? In China und Indien ist das eine schlechte Nachricht, dort werden gezielt weibliche Föten abgetrieben. Doch auch in Europa ist der sogenannte „Genderzid“ trauriger Alltag.

 

Monda sieht fertig aus. Sie hat viel zu tiefe Falten für eine 33-Jährige. Sie sagt: „Ich fühle mich wie tot, wie zerstört.“ Dreimal hintereinander hat sie abgetrieben. Nicht, weil sie die Kinder nicht wollte. Ihr Mann zwang sie dazu, weil es jedes Mal Mädchen waren.
Die junge Frau muss aber endlich einen Sohn, einen Stammhalter gebären. Sie haben zwar schon zwei süße Töchter, aber die zählen nicht viel. „Mein Mann ist so erzogen worden: Entweder einen Sohn oder das Leben in der Familie wird zur Hölle.“ Selbst die Schwiegereltern verachten sie. Die Frau ist schuld. Ganz klar. Willkommen in Europa, genauer gesagt in Albanien 2015.
Für ihre Dokumentation „Hauptsache ein Junge“, die am Mittwochabend um 20.15 Uhr auf 3sat läuft, reisen Birgit Wuthe und Magdalena Schüßler nicht nach China oder Indien, sondern forschen in Albanien, Armenien und sogar in der indischen Community in England. Überall dort ist die geschlechtsbezogene Abtreibung, der sogenannte Genderzid gängige Praxis.

Aktuell kommen in Albanien auf 100 Mädchen 112 Jungen. Nur in China und Aserbaidschan werden laut der Dokumentation noch mehr Kinder abgetrieben.

Der Grund in Albanien: Der Trend zur Kleinfamilie und die Tradition. Zwei Kinder sollen es sein, eins davon muss männlich sein. Auch dort ist die Abtreibung bis zur 12. Schwangerschaftswoche erlaubt. Zu dem Zeitpunkt kann man aber das Geschlecht noch nicht eindeutig erkennen, also treiben die Frauen viel später ab.

Monda geht in eine Privatklinik zur illegalen Abtreibung. Da ist der Fötus bereits sechs Monate alt. „Die Ärztin sagte, dass ich Tabletten nehmen müsste, weil das Baby schon so groß ist. Ich ging nach Hause, nahm die Tabletten, bis die Fruchtblase geplatzt ist. Dann ging ich zurück ins Krankenhaus, bekam eine Narkose. Ich merkte nicht viel.

                                                     Das Kind landete im Mülleimer.“

Sechs Monate nach der letzten Abtreibung wurde sie dann endlich schwanger mit einem Jungen. Er kann bei den Dreharbeiten gerade mal laufen und spielt fröhlich mit seinen beiden Schwestern, während die Mutter in der Minieinzimmerwohnung das Interview gibt.

                         Ihr Mann erlaubt ihr, das Interview zu geben, aber nur weil er dafür 200 Euro bekommt.

Millionen werden keine Frau finden

Er selbst taucht nur auf einem Foto auf. Darauf lächelt er happy mit seinen beiden Töchtern um die Wette. Als seine Frau aber keinen Jungen bekam, rastete er aus und schlug sie. Warum hat sie ihn nicht verlassen? Was denken Frauen, die verzweifelt versuchen, ein Kind zu bekommen, wenn sie sehen, dass Mädchen in anderen Ländern abgetrieben werden? Doch schnell wird klar, eine eigene Entscheidung treffen oder Flucht ist leider oft keine Option. Diese Frauen sind vom Geld des Mannes abhängig. Monda sagt: „Wäre ich in einer besseren finanziellen Situation, hätte ich nie abgetrieben.“
Alleine hat sie keine Chance, sich eine Existenz aufzubauen. Egal ob Muslime, Christen oder Orthodoxe: Religionsunabhängig ist sich die Mehrheit in Albanien einig: Alle wollen einen Jungen.
Weltweit gibt es bereits jetzt ein Defizit von 160 Millionen Mädchen und Frauen, 60 Länder kämpfen mit einer Geschlechterschieflage. „Die extremen Folgen werden erst Jahre später spürbar sein“, warnt der französische Demograf Christopher Guilmoto in der Dokumentation. Millionen von Männern werden keine Frau finden und können keine Familie gründen.

Nur sechs Monate Haft für Mord an der eigenen Frau
Ein Besuch bei der albanischen Menschenrechtsaktivistin Sevim Arbana. Sie ist die Leiterin der Organisation Useful to Albanian Women. Sie beklagt, dass die Regierung sich bislang kaum bei dem Thema einmischt. Ein Problem sei, dass Frauen, die vor ihren gewalttätigen Männern fliehen, die staatlichen Unterkünfte bereits nach sechs Monaten wieder verlassen müssten.

„Wenn sie rauskommen, hat ihr Mann entweder eine neue Frau oder das Haus verkauft.“ Im schlimmsten Fall bringen die Männer ihre zurückgekehrten Frauen um. Keine Seltenheit. Denn die Männern erwarten meist nur milde Strafen: Sechs Monate Gefängnis seien nicht ungewöhnlich. Arbana fordert: „Diesen missbrauchten, ungebildeten Frauen muss die Möglichkeit zur Weiterbildung gegeben werden.“ Nur so können sie sich selbst finanziell absichern und unabhängig sein.
Ortswechsel England, indische Community: 2012 filmt ein Journalist des „Daily Telegraph“ mit versteckter Kamera, wie eine englische Ärztin, obwohl die indische Patientin zugibt, dass sie nur abtreibt, weil sie ein Mädchen bekommt, sagt: „Ich stelle keine Fragen, wenn Sie eine Abtreibung wollen, bekommen sie eine.“ Oft seien diese Ärzte selbst Teil der indischen Community.

Armenien hat das Problem erkannt

Dann geht die Reise nach Armenien. Es ist laut den Recherchen der Filmemacherinnen das erste Land in Osteuropa, das das Problem der geschlechtsspezifischen Abtreibung erkannt hat und sogar aktiv wird. Schon Ende der 90er fällt auf, dass etwas nicht stimmt. Auf 116 Jungen kommen 100 Mädchen. Heute ist es kaum besser.
Die Regierung will die Zahl der Töchter mit staatlichen Zuschüssen steigern. Und es gibt Kurse von der Hilfsorganisation World Vision: In einem Raum sitzen die Männer mit ihren Frauen. Ihre Hände werden mit einem orangefarbenen Band verbunden. Hier sollen sie lernen, dass Mann und Frau gleich sind. Und auch wenn einige Männer zunächst nur mitgekommen sind, weil es bei Teilnahme kostenlose Kinderkleidung gibt, lernen sie dazu.

Teilnehmer Artur sagt: „Wir haben gelernt, uns zu lieben und mehr aufeinander zu hören, früher hatte nur ich immer recht und traf alle Entscheidungen.“ Nun hilft Artur auch im Haushalt mit. Beim Besuch in ihrer kleinen Wohnung spielt er sehr liebevoll mit seiner Tochter. Seine Frau Susanna sagt: „Es macht nichts, dass das Kind ein Mädchen ist, ist auch ein Kind.“ Liebevoll klingt anders. Spätestens, als sie zu ihrem Sohn geht und sagt: „Ich selbst mag Jungs. Es ist einfach so“, weiß man, dass es noch ein ziemlich langer Weg ist, bis die Mädchen dort genauso willkommen sind wie die Jungs.
„Hauptsache ein Junge“, 11. November um 20.15 Uhr auf 3sat oder direkt in der Mediathek

New Book, Called “The Case Against David Suzuki: An Unauthorized Biography”.


Suzuki has spent his life whipping up baseless hatred against Alberta, and anyone else who don’t share his extremist views.

Well, today I’m publishing a rebuttal on behalf of all Canadians. It’s my new book, called The Case Against David Suzuki: An Unauthorized Biography.

It’s a quick read — you can get through it in about an hour. But it’s meticulously researched, with 140 footnotes.

You’ll learn things about Suzuki that the mainstream media, especially the CBC state broadcaster, have tried to bury. That’s why I call it the unauthorized biography.

For nearly 50 years, Suzuki has carefully crafted an image that hides the truth about the man: a vain, abusive multi-millionaire whose private life contradicts every public scolding he’s ever given to “the little people”.

Here’s a video where I explain why I’ve written this book:

The Case Against David Suzuki is an essential rebuttal to decades of his own self-serving propaganda. And it’s a…
