Birds Of A Feather

This is one of these stories that make you feel as if you need to take a shower after you've read it. It involves two of the slimiest human beings on the planet, who've now had a meeting of the minds over a common racist agenda. But, in the world of "politics makes strange bedfellows" it's hardly surprising that an American white supremacist would find an ally in an Arab head of state. After all, it's not the first time an Arab leader and an avowed Nazi have rallied behind the same cause. Something about the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem and Adolf Hitler seems to ring a bell.

White Supremacist Holds Rally in Syria

David Duke tells Syrian crowd: "My country is occupied by Zionists, like the Golan Heights."

The notorious Louisiana-based white supremacist leader, David Duke, has visited Syria last week, where he delivered an anti-Semitic speech attcking "Zionists occupying New York" and the State of Israel. The speech was carried by Syrian state television.

Television footage of the rally has been made available by the Arabic translation service, MEMRI at:

Duke, who was once a "Grand Wizard" of the Ku Klux Klan, addressed a cheering crowd waving Syrian flags, saying: "I come form the peace-loving people in Ameica to the peace-loving people of Syria."

"It is only in America and around the world, it is only the Zionists who want war rather than peace," Duke said in a speech which seemed to illustrate the convergence of white supremacist ideology with the rhetoric of radical voices in the Arab world.

'It hurts my heart to tell you that part of my country is occupied by Zionists, just as part of your country, the Golan Heights, is occupied by Zionists. The Zionists occupy most of the American media and now control much of American government," he said.

Duke said that "It is not just the West Bank of Palestine, it is not just the Golan Heights that are occupied by the Zionists, but Washington D.C. and New York and London, and many other capitals in the world."

"I bring you a message from many Americans; from many people in Britain, and around the Western world. We say in unison: No war for Israel," he concluded.

According to the Anti-Defamation League, in an article entitled "The Black Plague," Duke once wrote in an editorial: "A black...gets a job with a white-owned company. He is the only black at the firm. He works hard, but he's fighting a losing battle against his genes."

Duke's latest website entry contains a pro-Holocaust denial message in which he laments the "Zionists who use the Holocaust as the sword and shied of the racial-supremacist state of Israel."

His website carries a qote by Syrian parliament member, Muhammad Habash, in which Habash welcomed "Duke's wonderful visit."

Habash is reported to have added: "He has given us a new and very positive view of the average American."

It'll be interesting to see what sort of spin the far left will put on this event. But, not to worry. I'm sure they'll find a way to gloss over the fact that one of their favorite Arab despots has gotten into bed with one of their favorite bogeymen.

I heard about this on Arutz Sheva. Don't you just want to tell the Syrians to keep him?

One more American puke, showing the ugly side of our Nation ... a side that every nation has to some degree.

The islamic media "lives" for this free propaganda! :(

Duke is an evil man and it's no surprise that he would be drawn to other evil men.

As you said Rory, - "Birds Of A Feather".
All they need now is Alison Weir and the Counter Punch crowd to make it a real "Happy Get Together" event.

I can't recall one single word about this story on the msm, but maybe I missed it.

Rachel Ann,
Yes. In fact, there are a lot of things I'd like to tell the Syrians, and that would definitely be one of them.

Sergeant America,
I was thinking that since the Syrians felt that David Duke was giving them a "very positive side of the average American," maybe Duke should replace Karen Hughes as our emissary to the Muslim world, because I doubt she's going to make much headway.

Seawitch,
Very true, and it's particularly interesting that even when two evil men have nothing else in common, they can still be of a like mind when it comes to anti-Semitism.

Felis,
Apparently, every democracy has its cross to bear when it comes to these bigots.

AOW,
I guess we all must have missed it, but you can be sure that if Ariel Sharon had met with him, it would have been all over the front page of the New York Times.

Well, at least he told them some good news!!!

Bozwell,
Yes, and I suspect that Ted Turner, in particular, would have been rather alarmed to discover he was a Zionist.

Rory, I had the same reaction as you when I saw this. Can we just start a list of dangerous idiots whose passports we want revoked so they can't come back to this country? Let Syria keep him. He fits right in.

Esther,
Yeah, if only somebody would send the miserable SOB into exile, and then we'll see what happens when that imbecile, Assad, finds out what the term "white" supremacist really means.

I've seen stories like this in the past. I really don't see the connection between white supremacy and Islamic groups. To me they seem to be polar opposites with the exception of being an extremist group. I guess for white supremacist and radical Islam their hate for Jews override all other concerns. Good post.

American Crusader,
Thank you. And you've got it exactly right. It's only their Jew-hatred (masquerading as anti-Zionism) that unites them. The same thing is true for the extremes on the left and right who have absolutely nothing in common otherwise.

 
At 2:09 PM, Blogger Esther said...

Rory, you are absolutely right. The far right and the far left meet at anti-Semitism. Isn't that lovely?

Ahhh, david duke. No one here listens to him anymore. He has to look for an audience in syria.

really nice.

Esther,
Yeah, isn't it amazing how two diametrically opposed ideologies can share a common pathology? Pretty scary, if you ask me.

Birdwoman,
I know. That publicity-seeking maggot must have been getting really desperate for attention.

Drummaster,
I think sometimes we have to laugh to keep from tearing our hair out.
