The Central Council of Jews in Germany has condemned the strong vote for the Alternative für Deutschland (AfD) party over the past weekend as an “indictment of Germany” and a “nightmare come true.”
Israeli-born Central Council of German Jews president Josef Schuster expressed his “shock” to the Jüdische Allgemeine that the AfD had polled 20 percent of the vote in the Mecklenburg-Vorpommern state elections.
“The AfD is not an option for Germany, but an indictment of Germany,” Schuster said.
The AFD, “with their tactics of stirring up resentment against minorities and offering slogans rather than solutions, has unfortunately been successful,” he said.
Given the AfD’s electoral success, the “established parties” should “focus more closely on the concerns and needs of the people,” Schuster said, adding that “clearly many voters are not aware or play down the fact that the AfD do not clearly distance themselves from right-wing extremists, in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania or anywhere else in the country.”
Schuster also said that he was “gratified” that the National Democratic Party (NPD) would not be represented in the state legislature.
“Nevertheless, the NPD continues to be a base” for what he called “right-wing extremists” and as a result, Schuster said, the Jews would “continue to press for a ban on the NPD as the correct and necessary thing to do.”
Meanwhile, Charlotte Knobloch, the president of the official Jewish organization in Bavaria, the “Jewish Community of Munich and Upper Bavaria” (Israelititschen Kultusgemeinde München und Oberbayern, IKG) called the AfD vote a “nightmare come true.”
“That an extreme-right party which blatantly incites hatred against minorities in a disgusting way can rise unhindered in our country is a nightmare come true,” Knobloch told München TV.
“The AfD is an openly far-right party. It is pathetic when a party—in which xenophobia, antisemitism, racism, homophobia, historical denialism, and conspiracy theories are the basis for argument—can become such a strong social and political influence,” she said.
Knobloch warned that, “in collaboration with other far-right parties, the AfD had the strength to threaten Germany’s democratic foundations.”
The hypocrisy of these Jewish organizations—which all support Israel—remains breathtaking. On the one hand, all these Jews support Israel—which has immigration laws based on race and DNA profiling to ensure racial purity, yet at the same time they viciously condemn and smear Germans who only want to stop the Third World invasion of their country.
In addition, Israel has refused to take in any “refugees” at all, and instead built a wall to keep them out—but in Germany, even a suggestion that “refugee” numbers should be limited, is attacked and condemned as “racist, anti-Semitic holocaust denial” etc. by these same Israel-supporting Jews.
Knobloch and Schuster’s condemnation of the AfD is yet another example of the now firmly established Jewish tactic of “one rule for Jews, another for non-Jews.”
