Calling Jews 'Nazis' may be criminalised

Parliament will be asked to consider whether the use of Nazi symbols and terms in reference to Jews, Israel and Zionism is breaking the law on incitement to racial hatred.

A new report by the European Institute for the Study of Contemporary Antisemitism (EISCA) has highlighted the increasing use of what it terms the “Nazi card” in antisemitic discourse and has called for a number of measures to try to combat its spread.

“Playing the Nazi card” has been defined in the report as the use of Nazi-related terms or symbols — for example intertwining the swastika with the Star of David — while negatively referring to Jews, Israel, Zionism or other aspects of what it calls the Jewish experience.

The report, which was jointly published by EISCA and the Department for Communities and Local Government, recommends that the Home Office, the Association of Chief Police officers (ACPO) and the Crown Prosecution Service should prepare new guidance for the police on whether this kind of terminology amounts to incitement.

The report says that universities and adult education colleges should be surveyed to establish how they deal with antisemitic discourse.

It also suggests that the University and College Union and the National Union of Journalists use the EU Monitoring Centre on Racism and Xenophobia’s definition of antisemitism to improve their harassment policies.

Cohesion Minister Shahid Malik, who launched the report on Tuesday alongside EISCA chairman Denis MacShane MP, said: “It is vital to reiterate the significance which my government places on tackling this scourge which has blighted our world for centuries.

“Where antisemitic discourse flourishes unchecked, an atmosphere develops where Jews and other minorities — for it is certain that other minorities will also be targeted — feel isolated and vulnerable.
“Antisemitic discourse is not targeted at an identifiable victim but at Jews as a group.

“The tone in which issues affecting Jewish people are raised or addressed by politicians, the media, educators or the business world, affects the way in which Jewish people are perceived by the wider public.”

After the launch, Mr Malik said that the report’s proposals would be overseen by the cross-government working group set up as a result of the 2006 All-Party Parliamentary inquiry into antisemitism.

Also on Tuesday, the Community Security Trust published its second report on antisemitic discourse.

Author Mark Gardner, the CST’s communications director, said that while antisemitic discourse openly targeting Jews was “extremely rare” in mainstream British politics and media, “nevertheless, antisemitism is an important matter that must be better understood and challenged before it worsens any further”.

Contemporary antisemitic discourse, he argued, “is most often revealed in language and imagery that evokes the central antisemitic allegation of a powerful and hidden Jewish conspiracy against all non-Jews”. continues here

It seems that Jewry doesn’t like it when the boots on the other foot, it is perfectly okay to play the “Nazi card” against nationalists ,perfectly okay to invent a whole persona for those tagged Nazi, yet when Jewry acts in the self-same way or worse, then it must be outlawed. Can any, any right-thinking individual, really state with confidence that this community does not wield disproportionate power, certainly today should an individual endeavour to claim that they do not, then they appear quite, quite ludicrous.

Yet still even today, Jews are perceived as victims, victims, this a community that rides roughshod over the feelings of indigenous peoples, creates a bandit state, steals secrets ,commits war-crimes and indulges in all manner of clandestine evil. Perhaps after all we must refer once again to that old adage ,”there is no smoke without fire”, certainly if one were to look to just recent legislation, proposed or passed, then unmistakably there is the hand of the Jew, I must reiterate this for nu-nationalists, “it isn’t the Muslims” but will they listen, doubtful and so stupidity rules the day and we march to war, many unaware. In any event the report can be downloaded here by concerned individuals, stay strong out there, there are rough times ahead…
