France’s comedian Dieudonné M’bala M’bala has created a political party to run in the upcoming parliamentary elections. The French high court threw out a petition to ban this party from running in the elections as a racist party.
Their platform essentially states the usually rhetoric that Israel, the USA, and the French (by implication) led by the ‘powerful Zionist lobby’ are an axis of evil bent on overturning the world.
Notice how they found the token bearded Jew for this campaign poster to assure voters that they are not ‘anti-semitic’.
People, wake up! European ambivalence to Jews has already been shaken by change in demographics. The not-so subtle shift of European anti-Israeli populist movements jumping to the forefround is a harbinger of things to come.
How much longer before America’s populist agenda, especially with the maverick Obamian policies, turns ambivalent, or even worse, against Israel?
