Israel's Friends in Low Places

The corporate press being what it is, you're most unlikely to learn that Norwegian Christianist terrorist, Anders Behring Breivik, is a strong supporter of Zionism:

"Were the majority of the German and European Jews disloyal? Yes, at least the so-called liberal Jews, similar to the liberal Jews today that oppose nationalism/Zionism and support multiculturalism. Jews that support multiculturalism today are as much of a threat to Israel and Zionism (Israeli nationalism) as they are to us. So let us fight together with Israel, with our Zionist brothers against all anti-Zionists... Whenever I discuss the Middle East issue with a national socialist he presents the anti-Israeli and pro-Palestine argument. He always seems unaware of the fact that his propaganda is hurting Israeli nationalists (who want to deport the Muslims from Israel)..." (From Anders Behring Breivik's 'manifesto', quoted in Anders Breivik, Norwegian terror suspect, admirer of Israel, Avigdor Lieberman,, 23/7/11)

Breivik's words will only come as a surprise to those ignorant of the symbiotic relationship between anti-Semitism and Zionism: the former, whether real or hyped, being used by Zionists to justify the creation and maintenance of an ethnographic 'Jewish' state in Palestine. As the father of Zionism, Theodor Herzl predicted: "The anti-Semites will become our most dependable friends, the anti-Semitic countries our allies." And so it came to pass.

Apart from Breivik, contemporary "friends" of Zionism include such colourful characters on Europe's far right as:

Geert Wilders, leader of the Dutch Party for Freedom: "I believe the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is not territorial. Those who make this claim have no idea what they are talking about. If you return the West Bank and parts of Jerusalem to the Palestinians, it won't end the conflict. After a certain period of time - a month, a year, a decade - they'll want the rest of the land, because this is an ideological conflict. So the solution cannot be territorial, but ideological. The Palestinians believe - and this is the nature of Islam - that Israel is their country and that they are fighting the non-Muslims in the West through it. The struggle against Israel is a struggle against us. We are Israel. The reason Dutch parents can sleep calmly without having to worry about their kids is that Israeli parents stay awake at night because their children are in the army. This doesn't mean Israel cannot be criticized, but I'm not ashamed to fight for Israel... Jordan is Palestine... I am against ideas of a transfer or ethnic purification. But if Jordan turns into a Palestinian state, Palestinians could be encouraged to move there." (Quoted in Geert Wilders: Israel fighting our war, Eldad Beck,, 30/11/10)

Tommy Robinson, leader of the English Defence League (EDL): "The EDL was formed 2 years ago. One of the fundamental beliefs that this movement was built on was its support for Israel's right to defend itself. In our first demonstrations, we went to Birmingham, and we flew the flag of Israel, the Star of David. In the first public speech I ever gave, I wore the Star of David in Leeds. The reason for this is because Israel is a shining star of democracy. If Israel falls, we all fall." (Quoted in EDL Chief: 'Any rogue elements within the EDL that go against our mission statement will be removed from the organization',, 30/6/11)

Heinz-Christian Strache, head of the Austrian Freedom Party: "During their trip [to Israel], the Europeans drove through Palestinian villages in a bulletproof bus to meet Jewish settlers in the desolate West Bank outpost of Har Bracha, set on a windswept mountain bluff with views into Jordan. While their they vowed that the settlements were necessary to defend Israel against its Arab enemies. As if to prove his readiness to defend the Holy Land, Strache donned camouflage war paint and an Israeli Defense Forces combat jacket for a picture with paratroopers of the 101st 'Cobra' Battalion on their base near the Gaza Strip (The last photo of Strache in military regalia became a minor scandal in Austria when it surfaced in 2008. The picture showed him with leading Austrian neo-Nazis and Holocaust deniers, and was apparently taken around 1990 when Strache was reportedly active in the Viking Youth, an illegal neo-Nazi group.)... In an interview before his death in a 2008 car crash, Jorg Haider, the longtime leader of the Austrian Freedom Party and Strache's predecessor, talked of Strache's plans to use Israel to make the party more respectable. 'If the Jews accept us, then we won't have a problem', Haider said Strache told him... Strache likes to play on history. In campaign literature, he is depicted in Knight's armor, promising a hot sausage [!] to a blond, slingshot-wielding Austrian boy if he 'hits that mustafa'. Kara Mustafa commanded the Muslim armies in the 1683 siege of Vienna - but, in today's Austria, 'mustafa' is more common as a derogatory epithet for any ethnic Turk." (Europe's extreme righteous: Far right European politicians find love - and common cause - in Israel, Stefan Theil, Newsweek, 27/2/11)

Kent Ekeroth, international secretary for the Sweden Democrats: "Europe's right-wing parties have 'realized, whoops, we've been wrong about Israel and the Jews in the past', says... Ekeroth, adding that their newfound love for Israel isn't surprising. 'It's all about Islam', he says. 'You can't be against the Islamization of Europe, and, at the same time, support the Arabs in the Israel-Palestinian conflict'. Ekeroth, who is himself Jewish and says he runs 'the anti-Islam activities' of his party, believes that 'Jews who fight us instead of their real enemy are digging their own graves'." (ibid)

Those done and dusted include:

Adolf Eichmann, SS-Obersturmbannfuhrer: "[Eichmann's] new boss... required him to read Theodor Herzl's Der Judenstaat, the famous Zionist classic, which converted Eichmann promptly and forever to Zionism... From then on, as he repeated over and over, he thought of hardly anything but a 'political solution' (as opposed to the later 'physical solution', the first meaning expulsion and the second extermination) and how to 'get some firm ground under the feet of the Jews'... His first personal contacts with Jewish functionaries, all of them well-known Zionists of long standing, were thoroughly satisfactory. The reason he became so fascinated by the 'Jewish question', he explained, was his own 'idealism'; these Jews, unlike the Assimilationists, whom he always despised, and unlike Orthodox Jews, who bored him, were 'idealists', like him." (Eichmann & the Holocaust, Hannah Arendt, 1963/2005, pp 8-9)

Hans Gunther (1891-1968), German 'Nordic race' supremacist and eugenicist in the Weimar Republic & the Third Reich: "Gunther also synthesized current ideas about Europe's 'Jewish problem'. The Jews were 'a nation' rather than a race. Still, the racial composition of the Jews was 'quite other' than that of most Europeans, with Asian, African, Mediterranean, and east Baltic roots. Moreover, due to 'seclusion and interbreeding' the Jewish nation was 'on the way to become a race, a 'secondary race' '. Europe's 'Jewish problem' concerned the 'influence of the Jewish spirit, and influence won through economic predominance, [which] brings with it the very greatest danger for the life of the European peoples and of the North American people alike'. A solution 'lies in the separation of the Jews and the Gentiles, that withdrawing of the Jews from the Gentiles which Zionism seeks to bring about'." (The Rise & Fall of the Caucasian Race: A Political History of Racial Identity, Bruce Baum, 2006, p 156)
