Anti-Semitic Muslim Protesters Chant ‘Heil Hitler’ in London

Rioters in London.

A previously unreported video filmed last month in heart of London and posted to YouTube illustrates the anti-Semitic rage enveloping Europe since the start of the latest Gaza war.

Chants of “Heil Hitler” and “Oh Jew, you will die” could be heard from the Algerian crowd amid pro-Palestinian signs saying “End the Siege on Gaza,” “Free Palestine” and “Freedom for Palestine.” Others carried the Algerian and Palestinian flags.

Protesters chanted “Allahu Akbar!” – God is greatest – as they burned an Israeli flag.

These protests underscore Europe’s lingering problem with anti-Semitism – this time fueled by Muslim and leftist animus against Israel.

Jews elsewhere in the United Kingdom have faced Nazi-tainted taunts from Arab or Muslims. British police and Jewish leaders have counted more than 100 hate crimes targeting Jews in July alone.

“Every time we see a conflict in the Middle East, there is an immediate increase in anti-Semitism here in the U.K.,” Mark Gardner of the British anti-Semitism watchdog group Community Security Trust told the BBC. “This latest conflict between Israel and Hamas has dragged on for longer than most of them do, and the anti-Semitism therefore has built and built, and become increasingly worrying for the Jewish community.”

A group of pro-Palestinian men, described as South Asian, reportedly shouted “Heil Hitler” and pelted pedestrians with cans and eggs as they drove through in a multi-car caravan through Broughton Park, a predominately Jewish suburb near Manchester on July 12.

In another UK demonstration, demonstrators carried signs saying, “Hitler you were right!” according to The Daily Mail.

Anti-Semitism in France has been more intense and occasionally turned violent.

Rioters attacked Jewish-owned stores on July 20 in the French town of Sarcelles, near Paris. Algerian demonstrators rioted in Paris, hurling chairs and other objects to protest Israel’s bombing of Gaza. Protesters attacked a synagogue in Paris and some chanted “Death to Jews.”

In Germany, a Molotov cocktail was thrown through the window of the Bergische synagogue in Wuppertal, previously destroyed on Kristallnacht in 1938, last month. Slogans such as “Jew, coward pig, come out and fight alone,” and “Hamas, Hamas, Jews to the gas” have been used by pro-Palestinian protesters in demonstrations across Germany.

“These are the worst times since the Nazi era,” Dieter Graumann, president of Germany’s Central Council of Jews, told The Guardian.

Dutch Jews have not fared much better. A pro-ISIS demonstration took place in The Hague on July 24 where protesters talked about killing Jews.

  • There is little anti-semitism in Ausralia, but when I talk to French people they seem to think there is a definite Jewish dark side emerging. I don’t know, but it makes me wonder, where’s there’s smoke…

    • “where there’s smoke”? What a ridiculous thing to say. There is a definite dark side emerging alright, but it’s not from the Jews!

  • I am sure that those,on the left, the anti nazi league et al, will utterly condemn these acts…..!!
    Who are worse? Those who support ghoulish murder in the name of religion, or those that tacitly support them and undermine the rights of millions through lies, hypocrisy and deceit.

    I talk about the dangerous trend in Anti-Semitism in my latest Times of Israel blog post: http://blogs.timesofisrael.com/anti-semitism-2-0-why-the-latest-incarnation-of-jew-hatred-is-so-dangerous/

  • The jihad is going well. Cameron will have to proclaim more “Nothing to do with Islam” bullshit. When he gets back from holiday…

  • lol at the title “Anti-Semitic Muslims”

    wut?

    • Obvious, isn’t it? Or RU a delusional muslim (oxymoron)?

      • Andree Penrice

        “Anti-Semitic Muslims” is an ironic statement because Arab peoples (which most Muslims are) are actually Semitic peoples themselves. Jews and Arabs have a common origin and ancestry. So when Arabs are anti-Semitic… they’re actually in a way hating themselves.

        • It’s commonly accepted that “antisemitic” refers to Jews.
          I agree muslims hate themselves, but they “transfer” that to Jews as a way of freeing themselves.

          • No, it is not commonly accepted accept by those lacking intelligence and education (i.e, the religious). Arabic, Greek, Jewish people etc. are ‘commonly accepted’ as belonging to the ‘semitic’ peoples, for example. Further, most of the individuals in the region itself are quite literally racially non-distinct – i.e they are the same.

  • Anti-Semitism is nothing more than the obscene notion that no one is allowed to question, criticize, or disagree with a certain privileged group. It is paralleled by application to American blacks, for which violation one would be labeled “racist” instead.

    No culture or race is above and beyond human discourse; to place themselves beyond human discourse is to relinquish their own humanity and the protection inherent in law. Further, to demand that culture or race as personal attributes should also be beyond anyone’s consideration is itself a form of mental and political tyranny.

    No free person should stand for another to demand his thoughts be limited away from a particular notion or observation. Race and culture, stereotype and mindset are as legitimate points of discussion and discrimination as any other requirement of the problem under consideration.

    Yes, it’s harder than slavishly cleaving to grade school principles or calling someone “Nazi”. But freedom of thought is worth millions of lives to defend, and without it, there is no freedom for anyone.

    Islam is bad. Judaism is worse. They’re cut from the same cloth of believing that who you are is more important than what you do. And that’s the very place from where terrorism comes.

    Some 3,000 years ago, King David probably never imagined cars racing at 240 kilometers per hour (150 miles per hour) through the ancient capital of the Jewish people.

The second annual non-competitive Jerusalem Formula One Road Show had been [...]
