Hungary’s Jews march after anti-Semitic incidents

More than 1,000 Jews marched through Budapest's Old Ghetto district on Tuesday in response to a series of anti-Semitic incidents in the lead-up to Hungary's elections.

The marchers defied a police recommendation to keep a low profile, marching in the neighbourhood of the Great Dohány Street Synagogue wearing yarmulkes. The police recommendation was issued last week, after the windows of Rabbi Shmuel Raskin were stoned in the same district during a Passover Seder.
Over the last week, anti-Semitic graffiti has appeared in various places in Budapest, a Holocaust memorial was damaged in the western Hungarian city of Zalaegerszeg and neo-Nazis held an anti-Semitic rally in the eastern city of Tiszaeszlár, where a notorious blood libel against the local Jewish community led to pogroms in 1882-83.
Organized by the Association of Hungarian Jewish Religious Communities, the Budapest demonstration was secured by the police and no violance was reported.
Jews have expressed concern about anti-Semitic overtones in the national election campaign. In election set for April 11 with a possible runoff on April 25, the ruling party Socialist party is expected to be toppled by the country's main Conservative party. A far-right party is also expected to score significant gains. Hungary's Jews traditionally vote center-left.

Hamburg police search for car arsonists after fiery weekend (Germany)

Hamburg police on Tuesday were searching for suspected left-wing arsonists who destroyed 10 parked vehicles early in the morning, as part of a continuing car-burning spree in the northern German port city.

The fires in the Flottbek district spurred a search for the arsonists that included more than 20 patrol cars, but officers reported no trace of the perpetrators so far.

On the previous night unknown culprits lit six other vehicles on fire in the city’s Harvestehude district. There fire fighters were able to save a nearby apartment building and a carport from the flames.

In the last year, about 150 cars have been burned in Hamburg, many attributed to left-wing extremists and anarchists.
In late March daily Bild reported that the number of politically motivated offences in Germany had soared to its highest level since record began.
Citing an Interior Ministry report, the paper said there were 33,917 politically motivated crimes committed in 2009. Many of these include car burnings in Hamburg and Berlin.

Although offences committed by right-wing extremists are twice as common as those committed by the left, it is a massive jump in left-wing crime that is responsible for the new peak.
The number of left-wing extremist crimes climbed 39.4 percent to 9,375. Among those were 1,822 violent offences – a rise of 53.4 percent.
Crimes by the far right, meanwhile, fell by 4.7 percent compared with 2008, totalling 19,468. Assault is a particularly common far-right crime, the report said.
Towards the end of last year, there was a spate of far-left attacks, including incidents in which perpetrators threw Molotov cocktails, paint bombs and cobblestones at Berlin’s Treptow district Federal Criminal Police (BKA) office. Around the same time, offices for the centre-left Social Democrats and the conservative Christian Democrats were also vandalised with anti-war graffiti.

And in Hamburg, about 10 masked perpetrators attacked a police precinct in the Schanzenviertel neighbourhood, setting a police cruiser alight, damaging other police cars and breaking windows with stones.
At the time, the head of the German Police Union, Rainer Wendt, branded the attacks a “declaration of war.”
Meanwhile the car burnings have spawned copycat crimes. According to a Hamburg police spokesperson, on Monday night an eight-year-old in Osdorf district managed to light two cars on fire using paper.

Google removes Russian terrorist’s video from Youtube

Google has removed a video from its Youtube video service in which a Chechen warlord claimed responsibility for recent attacks in the Moscow Metro.

Propeller Alla Zubrovskaya, a spokeswoman for Google Russia, told the Russian News Service website that the video in which terrorist Doku Umarov claimed responsibility for the Metro attacks had been found and removed from Youtube by Google moderators. However, she admitted that the video was accessible for several days. The official said this was due to huge amount of videos Google has to check daily. She also said that several more videos by Doku Umarov were still available, but promised that they will be found and deleted.

“If we take this particular subject, it is against the rules to upload such videos. That is why it was deleted. Google does not support terrorists,” Zubrovskaya said.

Hungary's reputation tarnished by extremism, analysts say

Hungary's reputation abroad has been tarnished in the past few years by the rise in extremism, street riots and tensions in Slovak-Hungarian relations, Nepszabadsag daily said on Friday.

Street riots in 2006 following the leak of a speech by then Prime Minister Ferenc Gyurcsany telling his party members that they had lied about public finances, the growing popularity of the radicals and attacks against the Roma minority have dented Hungary's image as a liberal country open to reform, Gereon Schuch, a researcher for the German Council of Foreign Relations (DGAP) told the paper.

The stand-off between the two main political camps makes problem-solving - handling the economic crisis, implementing social reform, integrating minorities and maintaining good bilateral relations - next to impossible, Schuch said.
A new Fidesz government, with a comfortable majority in parliament and broad social support, presents not only an opportunity but a responsibility, too. Fiscal consolidation must continue and energy should not be wasted on political battles, he said.
Michael Schafir, a political scientist at Babes-Bolyai University in Cluj Napoca, said that all the efforts of Hungary's Socialist governments to improve Hungary's reputation after the "catastrophic heritage" from the 1998-2002 Orban cabinet had been made in vain due to extremist and racist trends over the past year and a half. The Socialists have exacerbated problems due to corruption, a cause which the radical nationalists have taken up to powerful effect, he added.
Slovak political analyst Miroslav Kusy said Hungary's two main political camps are both responsible for Hungary's declining reputation. The Socialists maintained irresponsible spending that resulted in high indebtedness, while Fidesz torpedoed all reform efforts of the government.

Despite having a Socialist government in both Slovakia and Hungary over the past four years, bilateral relations worsened, Kusy noted.
"Viktor Orban ... will have to be far more empathetic and pursue more careful political relations with neighbouring states than he has promised so far. At home, he will have to tackle the extremists because that's the only way to maintain the stability of central Europe," Kusy said.


“You’ll be found dead on the streets” – the message from a BNP supporter (UK)

“You’ll be found dead on the streets” – the message from a BNP supporter
By Dominic Carmen
‘You’ll be found dead on the streets.’ That was the message I received a few weeks ago from an identifiable BNP supporter. Why? Because I was taking a stand against Nick Griffin. When someone writes this to you because you’re fighting as a Lib Dem in a parliamentary campaign against Griffin and the BNP, it makes you think very hard about your political opponent and the campaign they intend to fight. It also makes you think about how you should respond.

I reported the threat immediately to the police. They came to my house and have since referred the matter to SO15 – Counter Terrorism Command. I also urged Nick Griffin to intervene and condemn the culprit. I wrote: “This is London in 2010, not Berlin in 1933.” The response: silence.
The Guardian reported the matter. And that of another death threat – a video put on the web in the name of Wandsworth BNP, featuring Equality and Human Rights Commission chief Trevor Phillips. It suggested he be “dealt with”.
On March 21st, a BNP activist was arrested for threatening to kill Labour peer, Baroness Uddin. His Facebook message read: ‘were (sic) going to hang you one day. Regards the BNP.”
This weekend comes the news that senior BNP official and parliamentary candidate, Mark Collett has been arrested on suspicion of making threats to kill Nick Griffin. Collett was arrested after Griffin made a statement to the police. A Humberside Police spokesman said: “A 29-year-old man has been arrested and bailed on suspicion of threats to kill. We can’t comment further.”
Griffin becomes the fourth person in four weeks to have received a death threat from a BNP member. As BNP chairman, he should not be surprised. His party membership list is full of criminals with convictions for violence. This is the true face of the BNP showing itself in public: a party of violence, committed to violence, using the language of violence.
And Griffin himself uses the language of violence frequently. He once called for a defence of white rights with “well directed boots and fists.” He told me in interview that people “have the right to hurt people to maim and blow things up when they are not allowed any other any way of expressing a legitimate grievance.”

When he had Dominic Kennedy of the Times roughed up and ejected from a BNP meeting in February, Griffin said it proved his party was “not going soft.”
When I asked Nick Griffin who was his political hero, it was not Adolf Hitler or Oswald Mosley. The man he chose was Gerry Adams. Griffin would perhaps do well to remember: ‘Hate begets hate; violence begets violence.’ If he has received death threats from within his own party, then it is perhaps a true reflection of the culture of violence he encourages and supports.
Admin: The incident mentioned by Dominic in regard to the death threat's made to Trevor Phillips on a You Tube video was also reported to the counter terrorism unit and is being investigated.


After the suicide bombings in Moscow, attributed to two female suicide bombers from the North Caucasus, religious leaders and Muslim intellectuals have sought to distance terrorism from Islam. "As a matter of justice, because terrorism has no religion ever" as some say, but also for the well-founded fear that in the wake of the massacre in the metro the community is being overwhelmed by a veritable wave of xenophobic attacks, as some episodes in the news already indicate. The greatest risk is that Islamophobia, which has been creeping into Russian society, is being exploited for political purposes by those who aspire to an independent Caucasus, but also by those who aim to implement a political agenda aimed at repression and the strengthening of central power. Several Internet sites dealing with religious information, such as Portalcredo.ru denounce the dangers of the authorities "ambiguity”: "On one side pointing the finger at Islamic terrorism, on the other claiming that Islam has nothing to do with violence". While attacks continue in Ingushetia and Dagestan and the investigators dig into the lives of the two "black widows" responsible for the deaths of 40 people in Moscow, two women have already been attacked and beaten by unknown groups after the March 29 bombings. Their crime was they wore a veil or had a dark complexion, a characteristic that is associated immediately with the Caucasian population. Nargiza, 17, has been forced to leave the city: the daughter of an Armenian mother, she was attacked in the street. "They pulled her hair, tore her clothes and bruised her face," says Galina Kozhevnikova of the Sova Centre in Moscow, which deals with racially motivated crimes. A similar incident occurred, according to Radio Echo of Moscow in the afternoon the same day when, on the capital’s Metro, two Muslim girls wearing headscarves were beaten and forced off the train by a group of men and women. According to witnesses, no one reacted or called the police. The fear is that, as reported in local blogs and websites, it is now rare to see veiled women outside the borders of the Russian Federation republics with a Muslim majority.
Beyond the natural condemnation of the Moscow bombings, the Islamic community in Russia is pondering the cause of the massacre. For Ruslan Kurbanov, from the Institute of Oriental Studies, the Moscow suicide bombers are "a provocation to increase anti-Muslim hysteria and give new impetus to the process of destroying the social, cultural and political life of Russian society and of distancing the Caucasus from the rest of the Federation". According to Gaidar Jemal, president of the Islamic Committee of Russia, the fact that blame was immediately placed at the door of "Chechen separatism, which no longer exists, shows a renewed intention to demonize Caucasian Islam as a whole ... Maybe to justify an enhanced Central power, similar to what happened in the aftermath of Beslan in 2003”. Yesterday, reports of graffiti such as "Allah Akbar" and "Death to Russia" appearing on the walls of the Planernaya stop in Moscow Metro, rekindled Muslims’ suspicion that the wave of Islamophobia is being exploited for political purposes. The news appears to fit ad hoc: it comes from an anonymous witness and police say it is difficult to identify those behind the graffiti because of "the absence of cameras on site”. Hard to believe, not even a week after the bombs. Interpretations aside, the line on which all agree is well expressed by Berdijev Ismail, President of the Coordinating Centre of Muslims of Northern Caucasus: "The important thing now is to stay united and not panic".


Despite the fact that no Jews have resided in the Slovakian town of Zvolen since the days of the Holocaust, it appears anti-Semitism hasn't left the region. A Jewish cemetery in the area was recently desecrated when unknown individuals broke into its gates and spray-painted hate slogans on the site's walls and tombstones. Eyal Bloch, whose father grew up in Zvolen and escaped the town when World War II broke out, saw pictures of the desecration. He told Ynet that the town's cemetery contains the graves of the majority of the local Jewish community, which originally consisted of 700 members who died during the Holocaust. Only 10 survivors originally from Zvolen currently live in Israel, in addition to Bloch's father, who fought as a partisan in its nearby forests. Bloch noted that over the years the townsmen stole dozens of tombstones from the cemetery, which makes it harder for Jews arriving in the region to trace the burial spots of their relatives. "My father warned me over the years not to deal with what's going on in the cemetery since the population there is very anti-Semitic. When I showed him the photos he was horrified. " Over the years family members of Jews who originated in Zvolen tried to commemorate their loved ones whose tombs have been removed by installing a plaque with their names on the cemetery's wall. "Whoever did this never met a Jew in his life and it really hurts," Bloch said.

'Local authorities to blame'
He also noted that he installed locks on the gate two years ago, which have now been ripped out. The cemetery was declared a heritage site by the Zvolen Municipality, according to Bloch. Bloch blamed Slovakian authorities for failure to punish the perpetrators. "I turned to the embassy in Israel as well as the Israeli embassy there and filed a complaint with local police. I highly doubt they'll do anything." He further noted that in the past there were 500 tombstones in the cemetery and now only 50 remain due to repeated desecrations. He is scheduled to visit Zvolen on Wednesday in order to find ways of solving the matter with local authorities.

South Africa face-off at Eugene Terreblanche hearing (S.Africa)

Black and white South Africans have scuffled outside a court building as two farm workers were charged with the murder of a white supremacist leader.

Police stepped in to stop the face-off between people from the local black community and supporters of Eugene Terreblanche, found dead on Saturday.
Officers built a barricade from razor wire to keep the two groups apart in the north-western town of Ventersdorp.
The killing has raised racial tensions in the country.

But the authorities have played down any political motive to the killing, and police said the pair had admitted beating Terreblanche to death in a dispute over unpaid wages.
The suspects, aged 28 and 15, did not enter a plea but face four charges, including murder, housebreaking with intent to rob, attempted robbery with aggravating circumstances and crimen injuria - assaulting the dignity of the victim.

"After they assaulted the deceased, they pulled down his pants and exposed his private parts," said chief prosecutor Menzi Simelane.
Terreblanche's paramilitary group AWB (Afrikaner Resistance Movement) had threatened to take revenge for the killing, but retracted their threat on Monday.
The BBC's Jonah Fisher in Ventersdorp says about 500 people gathered outside court - divided equally between white supremacists, local black residents and the police.
Pushing, shoving and scuffles broke out after a woman in the crowd of AWB supporters appeared to throw a drink at a group of black people.
The police stepped in and coiled razor wire between the two groups to keep them apart.

Inciting to kill?
Pieter Steyn, an AWB leader, apologised for the drink-throwing incident.
He had earlier reiterated that the AWB was not a violent group.
"As soon as the court proceedings are completed, we will all disperse and go home and gather again on Friday for the funeral," he told AFP news agency.

The group blames ANC Youth League leader Julius Malema for contributing to the killing by recently singing a song from the anti-apartheid struggle called "Shoot the Boer".
Boer is an Afrikaans word for farmer, which has become a derogatory term for all white people.
Mr Malema has denied any responsibility for Terreblanche's death and the ANC argues that the song does not incite people to kill but is part of the country's history and the fight against white minority rule.

t is planning to appeal against a court judgement banning the song as hate speech.
President Jacob Zuma has appealed for calm and condemned the killing.

Past conviction
Terreblanche, 69, was fiercely opposed to the end of apartheid in South Africa, which led to the ANC winning the country's first democratic elections in 1994 and Nelson Mandela becoming the country's first black president.
He served three years in jail after being convicted in 2001 of the attempted murder of a farm worker.

Court papers identified one of those suspected of his murder as 28-year-old Chris Mahlangu.
Because the other suspect is classed as a minor, his identity is not being released and the case is being held behind closed doors.

The pair are due to appear in court again on 14 April.

Auschwitz theft suspect extradited 'this week' (Sweden)

Former Swedish neo-Nazi Anders Högström is to be extradited to Poland this week to answer charges in connection with the theft of the "Arbeit Macht Frei" sign from the Auschwitz death camp, a prosecutor said on Tuesday.
"He hasn't appealed, the decision is final since the 1st of April," the prosecutor in charge of the case, Agnetha Hilding Qvarnström, told AFP.

"Then according to the law the Polish authorities have 10 days to come and get him, so the 10th of April is the last day to come and get him," she added.
"We keep him here in Stockholm until they come and get him ... but I can confirm that he's still in Stockholm."
Högström, 34, was arrested on February 11th over the theft of the "Arbeit Macht Frei" sign which disappeared on December 18 from over the gate of the notorious World War II camp set up in occupied Poland by Nazi Germany.
On March 11th, a Stockholm court allowed his extradition to Poland to face trial for the theft.
Högström in 1994 founded the National Socialist Front, a Swedish neo-Nazi movement he headed for five years before quitting.
He has told Swedish media he was supposed to act as an intermediary to pick up the sign and sell it to a buyer, but claimed that he ended up informing Polish police about the people behind the plot.

Polish police recovered the five-metre metal sign, whose German inscription means "Work Will Set You Free", on December 20, two days after the theft. They arrested and charged five Polish men.
The sign, which had been cut into three parts, was returned by investigators to the Auschwitz museum on January 21, less than a week before commemorations marking the 65th anniversary of the camp's liberation by Soviet Russian troops.
The sign has long symbolised the horror of the camp where some 1.1 million people - one million of them Jews - were victims of Nazi German genocide from 1940 to 1945.
Polish judicial authorities indicted Högström in January and issued a European arrest warrant for him on February 2, after Sweden provided additional information on his place of birth, parents' names and residence.

Main parties accused of failing to confront the BNP

An all-party campaign against the British National Party has accused Labour, the Conservatives and Liberal Democrats of boosting the BNP's general election prospects by not tackling the party head-on.

In an interview with The Independent, James Bethell, director of the Nothing British group, warned that Gordon Brown, David Cameron and Nick Clegg were adopting hopelessly out-of-date tactics and failing to address the legitimate grievances of alienated white working-class voters.
Mr Brown called the BNP a "nasty extreme party", Mr Cameron labelled it a "ghastly piece of filth" and Mr Clegg said it was made up of "fascist thugs". But Mr Bethell said mainstream parties should be more open about policy issues such as immigration to address the anger of up to five million people. He warned that the BNP had "struck a nerve" among people with "no hope" and could become a permanent force in British politics, with a potential 12 per cent share of the vote.

The BNP will field a record number of general election candidates on 6 May – possibly more than 300. Nothing British is sending a guide to the other candidates in constituencies where the right-wing party is standing. It warns that the BNP is modernising, has shelved talk of forced repatriation and is as likely to campaign against the war in Afghanistan as immigration. It is choosing presentable candidates including more women, and screaming "fascists" at the party is as likely to annoy the public as persuade them, says the guide.

Mr Bethell, a Conservative who was managing director of the Ministry of Sound nightclub, said: "The mainstream parties must have the guts to confront toxic issues – immigration, national identity, Islamism and the divided nature of our society."
He argued that traditional attacks on the BNP would not work because they did not accord with people's experience of the party. Its members now wore suits and fluorescent jackets and took part in social action projects such as building a scout hut, clearing snow and even removing racist graffiti.
Mainstream parties have often sought to deny the BNP the "oxygen of publicity" – refusing to share a platform with it or addressing its policies directly. But Mr Bethell said: "In the old world of a handful of newspapers and the BBC, it was possible to keep the BNP out of the headlines. Those days are over. It doesn't need the national media. It operates below the radar using 'guerrilla marketing', and has a strong online presence. People turning to its politics have bona fide grievances.

"The people thinking of voting for it will have been hardest hit by globalisation, which has been good for the better off but an unmitigated disaster for those whose jobs have moved somewhere else. Politicians need to stop sitting on their hands and get stuck in."

Mr Bethell praised Mr Cameron for taking social issues seriously but said he had been "overly cautious in confronting the extremism and racism of the far right". Anti-BNP campaigners think Tories with northern roots such as party chairman Eric Pickles have taken a more proactive stance against the BNP than the "Notting Hill" set around Mr Cameron, who favour a low-key approach to immigration after the Tories were branded "the nasty party" for raising it during the 2005 election.
"The [Tories'] missing component is not necessarily policies. It is empathy and being prepared to engage with people who are angry and frustrated," said Mr Bethell.

Yesterday senior BNP figures met after the sacking of the party's publicity chief Mark Collett, who was arrested on suspicion of threatening to kill its leader Nick Griffin.
