Recent demonstrations in the UK have revealed a phenomenon that one would have never have thought possible; an alliance of anti-Islam ideologies between Zionist extremists and ultra right-wing neo-nazis and fascists who apparently hate Islam more than they used to hate each other.
While not exactly marching arm-in-arm in the streets just yet, ultra right-wing skinheads belonging to the fascist English Defence League have been photographed prominently displaying an Israeli flag at their demonstrations. Clearly, the two groups of extremists that would normally hate each other have found a common enemy. It also seems that the strengths of their hatred for Islam have been enough to form some kind of provisional alliance. It may be that the old animosities of the last century between racist Nazis and Jews have been dulled by time and events. It may be that today’s youthful right-wing extremists, instead of following the Nazi creed of racial superiority and anti-Semitism, are following more in the footsteps of the old Italian style of Fascism whose ranks in the early days was full of Italian Jews and financed heavily by Italian Jewish bankers who saw the Fascists of Italy as a bulwark against communism. It may be that today’s youthful right-wing extremists now view Jews not as Hitler and the Nazis viewed them but rather as a people defending their nation and the world against what they view as the Western worlds enemy, Islam.
It is unlikely that die-hard Nazi-style white-supremacists will ever become allied to the Zionist cause – indeed, many actually see themselves more in sympathy with Islam who are battling Zionism for totally different reasons than the Nazi style right-wing.
This new phenomenon has only recently emerged. It is far too early to predict how it will evolve but it is possible that a split will occur among the ultra right-wing of Europe where some will remain staunch anti-Semitic Jew-hating neo-Nazis while others will see themselves more along the lines of early Italian Fascism where even hard right Zionist Jews will be among their ranks.
On the other hand, it may all simply be a flash in the pan and Europe’s skinheads will settle down again to ultra violence at soccer matches once the soccer season gets properly underway again.
