Five years of austerity measures have left Greeks frustrated with their government. In response, some have turned towards the ultra-nationalist Golden Dawn party. The group denies it is Neo-Nazi, but its violent past may have caught up with it.
My journey to Islam is, it safe to say, not the usual one. Most white converts I have met came from a liberal and very open background. My upbringing was far from this. Both of my parents were in the US military and my upbringing was very strict. My father was very racist, and because of this, I was very racist myself until about the age of 24. I can remember as a child listening to my father lambast and attack Arabs and Muslims and bash the religion, their way of life, and their race. As this was the way I was raised this is the position I took as well. I had a very troubled childhood, as the above can only begin to describe.
Over 300 Survivors and Descendants of Survivors of Victims of the Nazi Genocide Condemn Israel’s Assault on Gaza
Jewish survivors and descendants of survivors and victims of Nazi genocide unequivocally condemn the massacre of Palestinians in Gaza
327 Jewish survivors and descendants of survivors and victims of the Nazi genocide have signed this letter written in response to Elie Wiesel’s manipulation of the Nazi Genocide to attempt to justify the attacks on Gaza.
Military says there is a personal price to pay when carrying out attacks against Israelis. Shiulie Ghosh speaks to Avi Bell – a professor of law at Bar-Ilan University and a specialist in international and property law; Bill Van Esveld – an Israel and Palestine researcher at Human Rights Watch, and a specialist in human rights law and armed conflict; and Jeff Halper – director of the Israeli Committee Against House Demolitions.
225 Jewish survivors and descendents of Jewish survivors of the Nazi genocide have signed a letter condemning Israel’s massacre in Gaza and calling for an end to the genocide of the Palestinian people. In the letter, they also speak out against the abuse of their histories to promote the dehumanization of Palestinians.
The survivors further condemned “the United States for providing Israel with the funding to carry out the attack, and Western states more generally for using their diplomatic muscle to protect Israel from condemnation.”
“Genocide begins with the silence of the world,” they wrote.
“Never again must mean never again for anyone,” survivors and their descendents wrote.
