Kristallnacht Redux

Outrage over proposal to boycott Jewish-owned shops

"Jewish leaders in Rome today expressed outrage over a trades union proposal to 'identify and boycott' Jewish-owned shops in the Italian capital amid fears of a resurgence of anti-Semitism linked to Israeli actions in Gaza.
Jewish leaders said the proposal, put forward by Giancarlo Desiderati, leader of the Flaica-Uniti-Cub union, which represents 8,000 shop assistants in Rome, was reminiscent of the anti-Semitic racial laws adopted 70 years ago by the Fascist dictatorship of Benito Mussolini in imitation of Nazi Germany." Hitler and Mohammed were very similar in many ways.

In Australia trade unionists have joined Hamas demonstrators in Melbourne. Syd Ryan, President of CUPE, had called for the removal of Jewish professors in Canadian Universities much reminiscent of what the NAZI party did in Germany in the 1930's. Socialists, some trade unions have made common cause with Islamofascist anti-semitism worldwide.

Meanwhile Hamas continues to fire rockets into Israel during a temporary ceasefire to facilitate humanitarian supply efforts.
