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

August 11, 2014 10:54 am 14 comments

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.

  • Please tell me…where terrorism comes from?how many ISRAELIS blow themselves up for all those virgins? How many of them try to explode underground, stations etc?How many Jewish people go into others religious places (churches,mosques etc) and kill people in there? So please get ur facts right first, and then make comments on Judaism being “worse”….

  • 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!

    • Why is this going on one might ask or where is the smoke coming from. It’s simple all roads lead to Israel. The final battle we all know is Armageddon. Many people fill that Jesus hated the Israelites after they rejected him as there true Messiah so this was Hitler’s charge to punish the Jews. Except he was very wrong the fact is Jesus will come back to reign and this time Israel will acknowledge their mistake this is found in the book of Zechariah so what is happening the world and Europe is becoming anti Israel with all the hate messages of Islam the whole world is on edge and we are all preparing for Armageddon all roads lead to the valley of Jezreel or Megiddo the world is blindly walking towards judgement!!! And nothing will stop it Europe Russian the United States and other nations will go to war and it will be the precursor to Armageddon. Better known as the 6th trumpet war found in the book of Revelation it will be a nuclear war that kills 2 billion men and women and children this also canot be stopped. Mankind is destroying hisself one way out of hear Jesus is the way. Right after the sixth trumpet war will start 7 years better now as the years of tribulation a covenant with Israel and the world community will be reached three and a half years of peace.And then all hell breaks loose and this will be the saying all roads lead to Israel mankind’s appointment with Christ good and evil will be judged in the valley of Jehoshaphat. Believe it or not it’s coming like a locomotive and no one can stop it my friends prepare your home because this is coming very soon. May the Lord bless you all and open the eyes of the blind an those that are death let them hear the word of the Lord for he is faithful.

  • 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/

  • 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.

  • None of these believers protest when Yazidis are being massacred in Iraq

    Hypocrites ?

    Tom Brady: Best Part of My Summer Was Watching Julian Edelman Lather Himself in Mud at Dead Sea in Israel

    New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady may have been bogged down this offseason over the NFL’s “Deflategate” scandal, but he found unusual recourse in images of teammate Julian Edelman lathering his body with potent Dead Sea mud in Israel. Indeed, as Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski became the latest celebrity voice to offer directions on the Israeli-developed navigational app Waze, and wide receiver Matthew Slater happily got married, Brady has been facing legal issues after NFL commissioner Roger Goodell reaffirmed a four-game suspension for Brady as part of a ball-deflating scandal […]

Whereupon, King asked the fan where he was from. When the man said Saudi […]

    Two Jewish men were the only unwitting participants in a social experiment conducted by Jimmy Kimmel, for his popular TV show. As part of a candid-camera-like sketch featured Monday night on Jimmy Kimmel Live, the host devised different street scenes to observe human behavior — in particular, to see how long it would take people walking down California’s bustling Hollywood Boulevard to notice and interact with others in distress. One scene involved a man in a Spongebob Squarepants costume who had “fallen down” on the sidewalk and needed help […]

She said she was shocked when she learned that a genocide was taking place in Rwanda while she was in school learning only about the horrors of the […]

    JNS.org – A new book that draws parallels between the Holocaust and the Palestinian Nakba (the Arabic term for the displacement of Palestinian refugees during Israel’s War of Independence) has sparked outrage ahead of an official book launch, to be hosted by the Van Leer Jerusalem Institute on Sept. 7.

In an interview with the U.K. Independent she added that the trauma should make Jews more empathetic to others who have also experienced hatred. “Sometimes it can be subverted to fearmongering and like ‘Another Holocaust is going to happen,’” the Israeli-American star said. “We need to, of course, be aware that hatred exists, antisemitism exists against all sorts of people, not in the same way.

    A Righteous Gentile Navigates the Sharkpool of Washington’s Middle East Correspondents (REVIEW)

    The Tribalist, by Louis Marano, is ostensibly a work of fiction but at its core a kind of love song by a gentile journalist for the State of Israel, and especially its secular Zionist core. (Because of the relentless attacks by left-wing polemicists on Israel’s allegedly “messianic” fringe, it’s often forgotten that most of Israel’s founders and all its leaders have been secular Zionists.) The author, the product of an Italian-American family in Buffalo, served two tours of duty in […]
