Argentina: Antisemitic politician kicks off campaign with vows to expel Israel envoy

The Left has normalized the demonization of Israel in the mainstream media, social media, and on college campuses. This is the result. The Left is bringing us back to pre-Holocaust times.

Anti-Semitic Argentine politician kicks off campaign, vows to expel Israel envoy, TOI, May 28, 2019:

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina — An accused neo-Nazi running for president in Argentina has said he would expel the Israeli ambassador if elected.

Alejandro Biondini, a veteran far-right ultra-nationalist leader, is the presidential candidate for the Patriotic Front party. On Friday, Biondini launched his presidential campaign for the October 27 elections in front of the Italian civil organization, the Unione e Benevolenza, in the center of Buenos Aires.

“I define myself as a clear defender of the Palestinian State,” he tweeted in February. “I repudiate the colonialist genocidal Zionism. I reaffirm: when I am president I will expel the British and the Israeli ambassadors.”

In launching his campaign, Biondini reiterated his promise and warned the country’s Jewish leadership.

“I said to the DAIA [Argentina’s Jewish political umbrella organization] that this is Argentina … this is not Israel,” to applause and shouts from the crowd. There was violence in the street before the event.

Biondini has openly espoused anti-Semitism and his admiration for Adolf Hitler.

Swastika painted at Jewish Buenos Aires Barber Shop, TOI, May 28, 2019:

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina — Swastikas were painted in front of a Jewish-owned barbershop “Javerim” in the traditional Jewish neighborhood of Villa Crespo in Buenos Aires.

The hair salon Javerim, the Hebrew word for friends, is a neighborhood icon. The swastikas were discovered on Saturday morning.

“I reject any type of discriminatory or xenophobic behavior, and I encourage you to continue working for an Argentina with a mosaic of identities where we all live together in peace and harmony,” Avruj tweeted.

In addition to the swastikas, a neo-Nazi pamphlet was hung near the store.

Argentina’s Federal Police and the Ministry of Justice and Human Rights are investigating the incident, which appears to be part of a wave on anti-Semitic attacks in the Argentinean capital. One week ago a man wearing a kippah was beaten and subject to anti-Semitic epithets on a street in Buenos Aires.

Buenos Aires Cantor attacked, Jerusalem Post, Maayan Jaffee-Hofman, May 24, 2019:

 

A cantor was brutally attacked Friday night after leaving the Mikdash Yosef synagogue in  Buenos Aires’ Palermo neighborhood.

“I left the shul with a friend and we were about to cross the street when suddenly I felt something strike my head and cheek from the side,” Cantor Eliyahu Chamen told The Jerusalem Post. He said he turned around to see what hit him and saw a man poised to attack.

“He was screaming, ‘the Jews,’ ‘the Jews.’ He started shouting antisemitic slurs,” Chamen said. “I called for the police, but there were no police. Then he came at me again, chasing after me and broke my hand, but I just kept running.”

Chamen said several passersby witnessed the incident but neither stepped in nor offered comfort when the event was over. This, he said, is what hurt the most.

“Maybe they could have helped, maybe not,” he said, “But when you see something like this happen, why don’t you come over? Help me calm down. Tell me it’s going to be OK. Say we’ll call the police. Something. Anything. But there was nothing.”
