David Duke: Trump-Hitler comparisons might be good for Hitler

(JTA) — David Duke said comparisons of Donald Trump to Adolf Hitler might be helping the Nazi leader rather than hurting the Republican presidential front-runner.

On his radio show Tuesday, the former Ku Klux Klan leader mentioned an unidentified commercial that compared Trump’s pledge to “Make America great again” to Hitler’s drive to restore German greatness.

“It was a commercial against Trump, but I don’t think it’s having the effect that they want it to have,” Duke said, according to a report Wednesday by Right Wing Watch. “They might be rehabilitating that fellow with the mustache back there in Germany.”

Major Jewish group condemns violence in US politics after Trump warns of riots

WASHINGTON (JTA) — The American Jewish Committee said “violence has no place in American politics” after Donald Trump warned that denying him the Republican presidential nomination could spark riots.

“Violence and threat of violence have no place in American politics,” the AJC said in a statement released Thursday, which did not mention Trump by name and emphasized that the Jewish advocacy group is non-partisan and does not endorse candidates.

Trump, speaking earlier Thursday on CNN, had warned that a brokered Republican convention in Cleveland, Ohio, in July could lead to rioting.

Jewish leaders plan to protest Donald Trump at AIPAC confab

WASHINGTON (JTA) — A number of Jewish leaders are planning to protest Donald Trump’s campaign for the presidency when he speaks at the upcoming AIPAC conference.

Two rabbis, Rabbi David Paskin of Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, and Rabbi Jesse Olitzky of Congregation Beth El in Orange, New Jersey, have organized a protest they dubbed “Come Together Against Hate,” a play on the theme of this year’s America Israel Public Affairs Committee annual conference in Washington, D.C., “Come Together.”

The rabbis plan to have volunteers hand conference-goers stickers with the slogan as they enter the event, and to organize a two-pronged boycott of Trump’s speech. Some protesters will simply not attend, while others will walk out when Trump enters and convene at another spot in the Verizon Center, a sports arena where the conference is taking place, to study Torah passages against hate.

Germany has temporarily shut down its various representative offices in Turkey in response to “concrete” evidence of potential terror attacks against its diplomatic missions.

The perceived threat forced the closure of the German embassy in Ankara as well as its Consulate General and Deutsche Schule, or the German School, in Istanbul on Thursday.

The German Foreign Ministry said the diplomatic premises took the measure due to the threat of possible imminent attacks, while the school had been shut down because of an “unconfirmed warning.”

“Yesterday evening, our security authorities received several concrete and very serious leads that terror attacks against our German representations in Turkey were being prepared,” German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier told reporters in Berlin.

The consulate has also warned German citizens away from the three locations.

The development came after a huge bomb attack hit a busy square in the Turkish capital over the weekend, leaving 37 people dead and 125 others wounded. The Kurdistan Freedom Falcons (TAK), a Kurdish militant group with ties to the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK), has claimed responsibility for the blast.

Turkey has been engaged in a large-scale campaign against the PKK in its southern border region in the past few months. The Turkish military has also been conducting offensives against the positions of the group in northern Iraq.

According to the Ankara-based Turkish Human Rights Foundation, around 200 civilians have been killed in military operations against the PKK since last August.

Several thousands of Kurdish residents in Diyarbakir in southeastern Turkey have fled the embattled city amid intense clashes between government forces and the PKK militants.

The 28 European Union states have arrived at a joint position on a refugee deal that will be proposed to the Turkish PM on Friday once the technical details have been finalized.

The common proposal was hammered out in Brussels, where EU leaders gathered to discuss a deal that would be reasonable, legal and would not lead to mass deportations of migrants. According to Luxembourg Prime Minister Xavier Bettel the EU proposal will be presented to Ahmet Davutoglu early Friday for Turkey to consider.

“The 28 have agreed on a proposal,” French President Francois Hollande said. “It was late in the evening, but it has been done.”

German Chancellor Angela Merkel told a press conference that Ankara must meet international standards on refugee protection and mentioned that negotiations with Turkey are not expected to be easy despite all of the EU countries looking forward to a deal.

No date has so far been set for the start of transferring “irregular” migrants back to Turkey, Merkel said, adding however that the procedure must start soon to avoid a “pull factor.”

EXCLUSIVE: ‘Dial one if you know a Jew dating an Arab’: Shocking Israeli campaign group set up ‘hotline’ to inform on ‘traitors diluting the Jewish race’ – and tried to split up model Bar Rafaeli and Leo DiCaprio

  • Racist Right-wing anti-assimilation group is against Jews marrying Arabs
  • Groups runs a hotline to report Jews in relationship
  • Members have targeted Israelis and Palestinians, Leonardo DiCaprio and supermodel Bar Rafaeli, and even Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg
  • They even protested at a wedding of a Jew who had converted to Islam 
  • Lehava believes relationships between a Jew and a non-Jew is a Biblical sin
  • Critics say Lehava seeks to sow hatred between Jews and Arabs in Israel

Racist extremists who set up a ‘hotline’ to inform on Jews in a relationship with ‘Arabs’ and who targeted Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg are openly peddling hate and violence – but the Israeli government won’t act.

Lehava, a radical fringe group in Israel, hunts down people sleeping with ‘goys’ – or non-Jews ‘- then ‘persuades’ them to separate, attacks Christians as ‘vampires’ and ‘bloodsuckers’ and is justifying attacks on churches using the Bible.

It accused supermodel Bar Rafaeli of ‘diluting the Jewish race’ if she did not split up Leonardo DiCaprio and has faced calls to be banned by the Pope.

Yet despite being under investigation for four years, the hate-filled campaigners operate in the central square of Jerusalem where they openly incite violence every Thursday night, the eve of the Israeli weekend.

And leader Benzi Gopstein boasted to MailOnline that he receives ten calls a day from Jewish people informing on friends who are dating non-Jews.

Supermodel: Bar Rafaeli, who is Jewish and was dating Leonardo Dicaprio, is one of the high-profile names who have been urged not to marry outside their own religion

The supermodel was told to dump DiCaprio in case she 'diluted the Jewish race'

Supermodel: Bar Rafaeli, who is Jewish and was dating Leonardo Dicaprio, is one of the high-profile names who have been urged not to marry outside their own religion by far-right radical fringe group Lehava

Non-Jew: Benzi Gopstein, the head of Lehava, wrote to Mark Zuckerberg, urging him to 'separate from the non-Jewish woman (Priscilla Chan) and find a good Jewish one'

Watch ‘The Daily Show’ take on ‘anti-Semitic incidents’ at Donald Trump rallies

(JTA) — It was just a matter of time before Donald Trump supporters turned against Jews, said Adam Lowitt on “The Daily Show.”

Lowitt, the Comedy Central hit show’s “senior Jewish correspondent,” said in a segment aired Wednesday night, “We were just wondering when it was going to get around to us. First it was Mexicans, then it was Muslims. We were on the sidelines going, ‘Hello, Jews here.’”

“The Daily Show” host Trevor Noah, who last year took over for beloved Jewish comedian Jon Stewart, had said Lowitt must be shocked to see all these “anti-Semitic incidents at Trump events.”

Lowitt singled out supporters of Trump, the Republican front-runner, for making references offensive to Jews.

Pyongyang has fired two ballistic missile off its east coast into the Sea of Japan, with one burning up mid air. The launch comes after the US slapped it with new sanctions in attempt to punish Pyongyang for its ballistic missile and nuclear tests.

The South Korean military said that the first missile took off at around 5:55am near Sukchon, in the western part of the country, and flew roughly 800 miles before falling in the Sea of Japan. The type of the rocket was not immediately known, but the Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) alleged it to have been a medium range Rodong missile.

“The missile hit waters within the Japanese Air Defense Identification Zone,” the JCS said.

JCS says that the rocket appears to have been launched from a a mobile missile vehicle using transporter erector launcher.

North Korea also fired a second rocket 22 minutes after the first launch according to radar data which lost its trajectory at an altitude of 17 km, as the military believes it may have exploded in the air before reaching the target area.
