John Demjanjuk was found guilty on Thursday of involvement in the murder of 27, 900 Jews by a court in Germany. He was living in Ohio. His trial started in 2009 after he was stripped off his U.S. citizenship and handed over to Germany. Does this mean that we are Nazis and has been hiding Nazis for almost 70 years? Then, why Pakistan is “hiding terrorists” if Osama Bin Laden was found in Pakistan.
This is just another case in a long series of cases, in which a German war criminal Nazi or Nazis were found hiding in a almost every Caucasian majority country. Since Nazis are Caucasians and their ideology is based on the supremacy of certain Caucasian races, it is easier for them to hide in a Caucasian majority country. Just like it is easier for Arabs or Muslims to hide in Pakistan or any other Arab or Muslim country. Some people say that Pakistan’s case is different. Pakistan has lots of supporters for these terrorist organizations. Do these people know that there is a very powerful, global phenomenon going on, known as Neo-Nazism. It includes, militant nationalism, fascism, racism, xenophobia, homophobia and anti-Semitism. Please, check Wikipedia article, Neo-Nazism. Far right parties are among the strongest in Austria. They include National Democratic Party (NDP) and Freedom party of Austria (FPO). They have virtually been a shelters for Nazis since their inception. Jorg Haider, the leader of FPO is a known proponent of Nazism. In 1994 FPO won 33 percent of votes in Carinthia and 22 percent in Vienna. Haider has openly welcomed former Nazis and has went out of the way to address Schutzstaffel (SS) veterans. Haider left Freedom Party in 2005 and formed Alliance for Austria’s future. He was killed in an accident in 2008. Freedom Party’s new leader, Barbara Rosenkranz is well known for her pro-Nazi statements. She is married to Horst Rosenkrantz, who is a key member of banned Neo-Nazi party and has published far-right books. Rosenkrantz says that she sees nothing dishonorable in her husbands work. The volume Rechtsextremismus in Österreich seit 1945 (Right-wing Extremism in Austria since 1945), has listed nearly 50 far right active organizations in Austria.
The Belgian Neo-Nazi organization, Bloed, Bodem, Eer en Trouw (Blood, Land, Honor and Faithfulness) came into existence in 2004 after splitting form international network (Blood and Honor). In September 2006, it’s 17 members were arrested (including 11 military members), because they were planning terrorist attacks to “destabilize” Belgium.
Bosanski Pokret Nacionalnog Ponosa (Bosnian Movement of National Pride) was founded in Bosnia and Herzegovina in February 2010, is a Neo-Nazi organization, which proclaims, “Jews, Gypsies, Chetniks, the Croatian separatists, Josip Broz Tito, Communists, homosexuals and blacks” as their main enemies.
Peruvians, Bolivians, Gypsies, homosexuals and prostitutes are the major targets of hate crimes in Chile. A concert in Zagreb by Thompson, a popular Croatian singer in May 2007, was attended by 60,000 people, most of them wearing ustase, a pro-Nazi uniform.
In addition to this, there have been reports of similar activities and crimes, on regular basis, from countries like France, Germany, Greece, Israel, Mongolia, Russia, Serbia and Sweden.
The free society of Teutonia was formed in United States in 1924. The organization merged with the friends of New Germany to form German-American Bund. In 1958 the National States’ Rights party was formed by Edward Reeds Field and J. B. Stoner for racial integration in American South with Nazi inspired publications and iconography. George Lincoln Rockwell founded American Nazi Part in 1959 and achieved high profile coverage in press through their public demonstrations. Anti-Defamation League and Southern Poverty Law Center are other Neo-Nazi organizations that exist in United States. Most Neo-Nazis in United States operate underground, and recruit, organize and raise funds, while only a small proportion of them is believed to be operating openly. Skokie Affair grabbed a lot of attention when Neo-Nazis threatened to march through a pre-dominantly Jewish suburb in Chicago. Neo-Nazis are known to attack and harass Jews, African Americans, homosexuals, Asian Americans, Latinos, Arab Americans, Native Americans, Catholics, and people with different political or religious opinions. American neo-Nazi groups often operate websites, occasionally stage public demonstrations, and maintain ties to groups in Europe and elsewhere.
I don’t know, if I am intellectually challenged or what, but, I am unable to find any major difference in modus operandi of these organizations and the mode of operation of Al-Qaeda and Taliban, and other Islamic terrorist organizations. Only difference I find is that one set of groups is comprised of Islamists and the other is comprised of white supremacist. Does this difference makes one terrorists and others not? Why the countries harboring one group of these organizations are bad and others are not? Isn’t this just a sheer bias created by media and politicians? Nobody has ever been able to explain it to me in acceptable logical terms.
Plus, when talking about war crimes, what do you think about over a million Iraqis killed in war for oil?
Unfortunately, as usual, it depends on your own perspective and what media and politicians are inserting in your heads, with highly manipulated, biased and ignorant reporting. I think, I was thought, very early in my life, if I make conclusions, without a reference to the context, then, my conclusions will most likely be wrong. I can’t believe, how often this is done by media and politicians and most of the time we just fall for it. This will help us in every aspect of our lives, if we start to always analyze information in it’s broader context. Inability to analyze information in it’s broader context destroys not only the national, international and political relations, but, in many cases personal and business relationships, too. People make wrong decisions and take incorrect steps and initiatives all the time, in daily life, because they jumped onto a conclusion, without having full the information and without analyzing that small piece of information, in it’s broader context. Sneaky people, businesses, media and politicians take advantage of this human weakness, all the time. A good analysis also takes into account various possible biases in the news. information and reports.
