First Nations leader praises Hitler

Damian Penny alerted me to this disgusting news:

A respected Saskatchewan Indian leader said Friday Hitler did the right thing when he “fried” six million Jews during the Second World War.

In comments one local Jewish leader described as unfortunate, David Ahenakew, a senator with the Federation of Saskatchewan Indian Nations (FSIN), a former chief of the organization and a former chief of the Assembly of First Nations (AFN), said in an interview Friday the Nazi leader was trying to clean up the world during the war.

“The Jews damn near owned all of Germany prior to the war,” Ahenakew said.

“That’s how Hitler came in. He was going to make damn sure that the Jews didn’t take over Germany or Europe. That’s why he fried six million of those guys, you know. Jews would have owned the goddamned world. And look what they’re doing. They’re killing people in Arab countries.”

I must admit, words fail me. Except to point out that the rise in worldwide antisemitism in the past two years among the fringe extremes has exactly mirrored the rise in anti-Zionism among people who consider themselves more “mainstream”.

But one, of course, has nothing to do with the other. (Insert sarcasm tag here).

    Rhetoric often expresses more about the speaker than about those of whom they speak.

    It is typical for most neo-Nazi’s and
    Nazi sympathizers, like Mr. Ahenakew,
    to use the Arab-Israeli conflict to
    support their antisemitic views. Just
    go to Storm Fronts website or the
    holocaust denial site codoh.org and
    you will find whole sections on
    “racist” Zionism and how Israel treats
    the palestinians.

    There is of course a very strong link
    between anti-Zionists and antisemites
    despite what the SPHR and CSU say.

    I heard Ahenakew’s comments on a news report last night and read parts of his speech today (see source below). He’s f***ing insane.

    His rhetoric of DISEASE (“How do you get rid of a disease like that…”) and POLLUTION (“they were trying to clean up the world”) is a mirror of Nazi rhetoric.

    Its too bad, however, that this is precisely how the Asper papers, Hillel, B’nai Brith, and, of course, several Israeli politicians and rabbis, speak of Arabs.

    Well, when the Nazis are against you, you know you must be doing something right.

    “He’s f***ing insane.”

    Hanthala, I’m surprised to hear you say
    this. After all, he is one of your allies.
    And there are plenty more like him. The
    “Palestinian” cause is high on the neo-Nazi

    I wonder why?

    “Hanthala, I’m surprised to hear you say this. After all, he is one of your allies.”

    Yeah, well, that’s one of your biggest mistakes and the one that will be your downfall.

    Hanthala: What is the derivation of your name? Diana

    Diana wonders: “Hanthala: What is the derivation of your name?”
