In Germany
On Day
Of Kristallnacht

What is Kristallnacht? It was the night in 1938 (actually it was two nights) when the anti-Semitic forces Hitler had been stirring finally broke completely free. Germans ransacked Jewish homes in a murderous pillaging spree that crossed the country.

Well, German neo-Nazis celebrated Kristalnacht the other night with a rampage of their own:

CNN: BERLIN, Germany (Reuters) -- German neo-Nazis, some shouting "Sieg Heil," rampaged in the eastern city of Frankfurt on Oder and destroyed wreaths placed to mark the anniversary of the 1938 Nazi pogrom against the Jews, police said on Friday.

A police spokeswoman said the group had launched an attack on Thursday evening, shortly after a memorial service by community and Jewish leaders at a monument where a synagogue once stood.She said the neo-Nazis trampled floral wreaths placed at a memorial stone to the synagogue in the Polish border city that was destroyed 68 years ago in the Nazis' Kristallnacht or "Night of Broken Glass."

CNN: MUNICH, Germany (AP) -- Nearly 70 years after Adolf Hitler declared Munich's main synagogue an "eyesore" in the center of his power base and personally ordered it torn down, the city's Jews are celebrating a return to the heart of the southern German city.

On Thursday, the 68th anniversary of Kristallnacht, or the Night of Broken Glass, Torah scrolls were marched with fanfare through the winding, cobblestone streets of downtown Munich to a newly built synagogue in the heart of the city.

Everything old is new again, huh?

By the way, what do you think of the fact that the German neo-Nazis are now donning Palestinians Kaffiyehs?

Why not, Hitler colluded with the Arabs to kill Jews, so why shouldn't his spawn do the same?
