...And Across into Asia

They'd hate to be left out. Our global anti-Semitism tour has hit Europe, Africa, and South America so far. And now, representing the continent of Asia ... Bangladesh!
As reported by the editor and publisher of the Weekly Blitz, peace activist Salah Uddin Shoaib Choudhury, Mohammad Asafuddowlah said, "My soul bleeds when I recall the recent atrocities against the people of Gaza. And if I was a young man, I would have gone to Gaza with a weapon to exterminate Israel."

It is not just Israel's extermination Asafuddowlah seeks, however. "Now I believe that what Adolph Hitler did during the Holocaust was absolutely correct. He should have done this more extensively, to eliminate the total Jewish population from the world," he added.

Abdul Hye Sikder, the host of the TV program on which Asafuddowlah appeared, reacted to the genocidal statements with agreement, echoing the sentiments. Sikder, Choudhury reports, was at one time a leading activist of the Bangladesh Nationalist Party.

Incidentally, the BNP is a conservative (center-right) party, so at least this one can't be blamed on the "left". But the lamentations about Hitler's failures are unfortunately becoming a bit of a trend.

The really disturbing thing is that this stuff isn't more widely reported (which contributes to supposedly anti-racist orgs doing anything about anti-Semitism.)

At least it proves that Jews don't "control the media."

The issue here for the BNP is not right or left but Islam.

Allah's Apostle said, "The Hour will not be established until you fight with the Jews, and the stone behind which a Jew will be hiding will say. "O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him."

Anti-Semitism has been built into Islam ever since the Jews of Mecca rejected him. And it has never been rejected because the Koran is the literal word of allah and Mohammed is a "perfect" man. Consider reading The Legacy of Islamic Antisemitism for a more detailed background that can be hard to find in most media.
