CONVICTED IN FRANCE, ANTI-SEMITIC COMEDIAN HEADS TO PERFORM IN NORTH KOREA

The North Korean news website NK News reports that the popular French Muslim anti-Semitic “comedian” Dieudonné will travel to North Korea to perform at what is being dubbed a “peace festival” to be held next Saturday, September 9.

He will travel there with Alain Soral, a notorious former leading communist and anti-Semitic agitator who then joined the French far-right party, the National Front.

The event will not be open to the media. At previous events, Dieudonné made vicious anti-Semitic remarks, and has been convicted on several occasions for breaching France’s hate speech laws.

SUSPENDED PRISON SENTENCE

As I reported on this list at the time, in 2013 Dieudonné called for a French Jewish journalist to be sent to the “gas chamber”. And in 2015, he was given a seven-year suspended prison sentence by a French court after he praised the terrorist who murdered four Jews in a kosher supermarket in Paris hours after the Charlie Hebdo massacre.

His songs and performances frequently contain jokes connected to the word “Shoah,” the Hebrew for “The Holocaust”.

Dieudonné is banned from entering several counties, including Canada, Britain and Belgium, as posing a threat to public order.

As for Soral, last year a French court fined him 10,000 euros and handed him a six-month suspended prison sentence for his Facebook post saying “Hitler should have finished the job” in regard to the Holocaust.

Soral also has many previous convictions for minimizing or mocking the Holocaust.

 





 

BRITISH LABOUR AGITATORS USE ZIONIST SMEAR TO GO ON WITCH HUNT AGAINST MP WHO DEMANDED JUSTICE FOR CHILD VICTIMS

After British Labour MP Jess Phillips spoke out about the British-Pakistani-led gang who had sexually abused, and in many cases raped, 1400 white women and girls in and around the British town of Rotherham, party leader Jeremy Corbyn’s far-left supporters are launching a campaign of harassment against her to try and have her thrown out of parliament.

One of the smears they are using is to denounce her as a “Zionist” (for example, in the poster above) as if that were a negative thing. To my knowledge Phillips has no particular connections to Jews or Israel.

Last month Corbyn fired Sarah Champion, the Labour MP for Rotherham, from his shadow cabinet after she made outspoken remarks defending the abuse victims.

Corbyn’s supporters have been denounced as “the Fascist left” by many in Britain.

Here is a short interview with me from June on Corbyn’s views on foreign policy and Zionism. After his strong performance in June’s British general election, Corbyn has a realistic chance of becoming Britain’s prime minister after the next general election.

 

TERROR GROUP PERMITTED TO RUN FOR PARLIAMENT IN GERMAN ELECTIONS

The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), which has been banned as a terror organization in the US, EU and elsewhere, is to be allowed to field candidates in September’s national election to Germany’s Bundestag.

The PFLP will run on a joint list with the Marxist-Leninist Party of Germany. The PFLP believes it has substantial support among German Muslims, including some newly arrived migrants to the country.

The PFLP has murdered dozens of Israelis in terrorist attacks and was a pioneer in the hijacking of airplanes.

Volker Beck, a Green Party Bundestag MP is among those calling for the PFLP to be banned from the election. Beck criticized Germany’s Interior Ministry for refusing to outlaw the party. Critics point out that Germans also elected the Nazis through democratic elections.

A PROVOCATIVE FOREIGN MINISTER

Earlier this year, Germany’s Foreign Minister, Sigmar Gabriel, was criticized in Israel for downplaying the Jewish centrality of the Holocaust.

After returning from a visit to Israel in April in which he was criticized for using Israel’s Holocaust Memorial Day to meet with representatives of Breaking the Silence and B’tselem (two far-left NGOs which in the views of many Israelis are more interested in defaming Israel than in promoting a genuine Israeli-Palestinian peace agreement), Gabriel gave a provocative interview to the Frankfurter Rundschau newspaper in which he said that the Social Democrats, his own party, were “the first victims of the Holocaust”.

(He later changed this to say to claim that they were “the first victims of the Nazis”.)

DUTCH JEWS DEMAND POLICE TAKE ACTION OVER THREATS TO KILL JEWS AT BDS ROTTERDAM RALLY

The Dutch Central Jewish Board made a formal complaint last Wednesday to Dutch police, demanding that they take action over the previous month’s (July 22) rally outside Rotterdam’s Central Train Station, which contained mass chanting for the murder of Jews.

The Netherlands has one of the worst records in Europe in relation to the murder of local Jews during the Holocaust.

The July 22 rally, called to protest the temporary placing of metal detectors to protect worshippers at the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, was hosted by the Rotterdam branch of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement, and promoted on Facebook.

INVOKING 7th CENTURY MASSACRES AS ISLAM WAS FOUNDED

Participants at the rally shouted in Arabic, “Jews, remember Khaybar, the army of Mohammed is returning for you,” referring to the seventh century massacre of Jews by Muslims in the town of Khaybar, located in modern-day Saudi Arabia.

(There was a substantial Jewish presence for many centuries in Saudi Arabia and throughout the Arab world before Islam was founded in the seventh century.)

The Rotterdam rally, which included other anti-Semitic chants, was broadcast live by the Shebab News Agency, an agency banned by the Palestinian Authority because of its ties to Hamas, but permitted to operate in Holland.

Dutch Jewish leaders are requesting that the police enforce laws against incitement to racist violence. Earlier this year, a Belgian court convicted a Belgium Muslim who shouted the same words about Mohammed and Khaybar in 2014 in Antwerp.

The conservative faction on Rotterdam City Council, has demanded the mayor of Rotterdam prevent such anti-Semitic events occurring in future in their city.

The heads of BDS Rotterdam have released a statement condemning the chanting by those at the rally.
