History is again repeating itself… in an ugly way.

They came first for the Communists,
and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Communist.
Then they came for the Jews,
and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Jew.
Then they came for the trade unionists,
and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Catholics,
and I didn’t speak up because I was a Protestant.
Then they came for me,
and by that time no one was left to speak up.

The above is a well known poem written by Pastor Martin Niemöller.

The same ideologies live on today, with a Star of David replacing the swastika… the same mentalities, the same evil.

The Judeo-nazis celebrate the murders of the week and now go after the gay community… same old, same old.

Unlike the man in the above poem, I WILL NOT BE SILENT!

These animals have to share the guilt of the actual murderers, they must be charged with treason against humanity and sent away for eternity.

Don’t be silent on this… JOIN ME!

Kahane supporters praise Gaza killings as ‘holy’

Supporters of assassinated rabbi Meir Kahane hold ceremony to commemorate killed rabbi, say ‘holy canon’ fired shells at family in Beit Hanoun in which 18 Palestinians died on Wednesday

Kahane supporters take credit for compromise on gay pride parade: Some 200 right-wing activists gathered in Jerusalem on Thursday evening for a commemoration of rabbi Meir Kahane who was killed 16 years ago.

Activists linked his memorial to the gay pride parade and praised Yishai Schlissel, who stabbed a man at the gay pride parade in Jerusalem last year and was sentenced to 12 years in jail.

“Thanks to him today large protests exist today and we saw how they (gay groups) are retreating more and more. That’s what rabbi Kahane taught us – self-sacrifice,” right-wing activist Noam Federman said.

Federman said: “The abomination parade, that’s not the first time it is taking place, suddenly this year there is a wave of protest that
wasn’t. The public is awakening. I asked myself what happened this year. The answer: Self-sacrifice. A year ago, one Jew, Yishai Schlissel of Kiryat Sefer stood up. No one heard of him. He stabbed the homosexuals.”

Right-wing activist Baruch Marzel spoke of the killings in Beit Hanun: “After so many cannons, we see today that one cannon managed to hit, the holly cannon, and all rush to apologize.”

He continued: “If you would have listened to rabbi Kahane this wouldn’t have happened to you, leave!”

Speaking of the gay pride parade he said: “Thank God we scored big wins …Sometimes people wonder what’s happening, how they have power to protest. The story of this parade is the story of rabbi Kahane. For years we were alone against this abomination which entered Jerusalem. This year, thank God, the whole country went noisy and stormy.”

He vowed to protest against holding the gay pride parade in Tel Aviv, saying the city is also “part of the Land of Israel.”

“We need to expel them completely out of Jerusalem, what do fags have to do with Jerusalem? These left-wingers, these proxies, to hell with them. This is a group which decided that any trace of Judaism should be eliminated, and therefore our biggest fight is against the High Court of Justice.”

Right-wing activist and president of the “State of Judea”, Michael Benhorin said: “We vowed to bring justice to Jerusalem and to save its good name. Those who supported the abomination parade are Durit Beinish and Meni Mazuz, who are preventing Jews from praying on the Temple Mount.”

    You won’t be silent?? That makes two of us as I won’t either !!!!!!!
    It is a matter of moral obligation to speak up against injustice and to stand by and defend the weaker and whoever doesn’t think this way, does have a serious problem.
    I love the poem … it is true, VERY true … sadly enough!
    Thanks so much dear friend!! Let’s plough along … together with ALL the others – to spread the truth and fight for justice and human rights!! 🙂

    I KNOW you won’t be silent Karin… nor would you have been in the dark days that the poem was writtn.
    Our voices will be heard and we will drown out the sounds of the guns and bombs… of this I am sure.

    Again I am disgusted at the depths to which our brethren are capable of sinking. Unfortunately I am no longer surprised. This is just a further demonstration, if any were needed, how much hate has grown in Israel. Is this the inevitable result of destroying our humanity with 40 years of colonial occupation, repression and apartheid?

    Lenny… it’s beyond me how you can can consider these animals brethren… I cannot even consider them to be human.
    They are animals without souls… creations of satan.

    I am very proud of my brave gay and lesbian brothers and sisters who marched in Jerusalem today. I am straight but not narrow and support their human dignity. I was very moved by the film “Trembling Before God” about gays in the orthodox Jewish community. I hope everyone can see it.

    Desertpeace: Interesting comment about ‘brethren.’ Made me think about it. I think I still consider myself part of the Jewish and Israeli community although I do have feelings sometimes that I would prefer to totally disassociate myself from that group. In one way it is a complex ‘love-hate’ relationship Although neither love nor hate describe accurately either side of that emotional scale but the expression communicates that ambivalent and conflicting situation. I think my continued self-identification helps me to empathize with both sides while having a clear vision of where the majority of ‘right’ and ‘wrong’ lie now. And I also realize that I a maybe can’t and don’t want to negate something that is a part of who I am and where i come from. Thinking of them as ‘brethren’ is part of my feelings of hating what they do while not hating them (at least most of them, although some of them I do hate). And finally, I can see still the positive in my heritage and in my brethren which is maybe one major thing that keeps me believing that things can change because there is good and it is the good that needs to be spoken to and tapped.

    Actually a good question and issue for an extended post on my own weblog now that you have brought it up to the surface in me.

    Oh and by the way, I am also very proud of my gay and lesbian brothers and sisters who dared to march today in defiance. And I mean literally brothers and sisters since I am also gay. An interesting detail now that I am being personal is that my partner and obvously my ‘family-in-law’ are SE Asian muslims.

    Peter… good for you! Many times I thought your comments here were larger than the original post…
    Your new post and Bens new cartoon inspired my latest post.

    Good to see you Lenny… interesting comment. I hope you go ahead and post something on your blog as you say you will… should make for some interesting discussions.
    As far as you being gay… reminds me of a joke…
    Nikita Khrushev was once being interview on a New York TV show by David Susskind..
    Susskind asked… “Is it true that Tchaikovski was gay?”
    Khruschev’s reply was..
    “Yes, but that is not the only reason the Soviet People love him.”
    If you are a good person Lenny, then I love you too!
