More French Jews drifting to National Front party


Moderate direction coupled with tough talk on ‘Islamization’ helping French right-wing faction gain more support

ed note–but, but, but…the nationalists are constantly telling us that it is organized Jewish interests responsible for the ‘brown tide’ sweeping Europe and America, and now we read that these same organized Jewish interests are finding common cause with Marine Le Pen and her ‘nationalist party’?

How many other ‘white nationalist’ groups/individuals have been co-opted in the same way, where the enemy uses the frustration and friction they themselves caused through war/exploitation to then harness and channel that energy into more war that only benefits the synagogue?

Times of Israel

From the window of his Paris home, Michel Ciardi can see into the waiting room of a government welfare agency where a predominantly Arab and African crowd awaits government checks.

A former communist, Ciardi once believed the scene at the agency was a necessary element of French efforts to help integrate new immigrants. But that changed in 2000 after the second Palestinian intifada triggered a massive increase in anti-Semitic violence, much of it committed by Arab and African immigrants.

The violence was enough to shift his political allegiance to the National Front, a far-right party long demonized by French Jews as anti-Semitic and a threat to republican values.

“I never considered voting National Front,” Ciardi told JTA. “But I realized you need to defend yourself, your community, society and country against those seeking to subdue us.”

French Jewry has long viewed the National Front as an enemy, an abominable vestige of the pro-Nazi Vichy state. But under the leadership of Marine Le Pen, the photogenic daughter of party founder Jean-Marie Le Pen, a political provocateur convicted multiple times for hate speech and Holocaust denial, the party has tried to shed its image as decidedly outside the mainstream.

The younger Le Pen has aggressively courted Jewish voters by emphasizing its opposition to “the Islamization of France” and asserting that Jews have far more to fear from Arab anti-Semitism than from the racist rhetoric of some far-right activists.

Her strategy appears to be working.

A recently published survey of 1,095 self-identified Jews showed that the National Front had more than doubled its share of the Jewish vote in the 2012 presidential elections, earning 13.5 percent of Jewish support — a finding that has set off alarm bells among leaders of France’s major Jewish groups.

“Rich community bosses and well-educated students don’t understand what’s happening because they don’t live with the Muslims in the workers’ neighborhoods,” Ciardi said. “There Jews are realizing that the immigration policies and political correctness of past governments created a reality where they cannot wear their kippah outside.”

Marine Le Pen assumed the leadership of the National Front in 2011, replacing her father. He had run the party with his deputy, Bruno Gollnisch, who was also convicted of denying the Holocaust, though the ruling was overturned by a higher court. Together they seemed happy to make the National Front the bete noire of the political establishment.

Since taking the helm, Le Pen has worked to elevate the party to a level of respectability it could never achieve under her father, whose often blunt racism cost National Front many votes and left the movement isolated.

After assuming the party leadership, Le Pen stripped Gollnisch of his duties at the European Parliament, leading him to observe last year that she “seeks to keep me and her father in a certain state of virginity” — a phrase pundits took to be a euphemism for impotence. She repeatedly has condemned anti-Semitism and punished a party official who made anti-Semitic statements. In 2011, Le Pen dispatched her life partner and National Front Vice President Louis Alliot on a bridge-building mission to Israel.

“The fact that Marine Le Pen took the party in a more moderate direction is a major factor for many Jews,” said Gilles Goldnadel, a prominent attorney and a former member of the executive board of the CRIF umbrella group of French Jewish communities. “Today in France, there is a greater danger from Islamo-leftism than the danger posed by the far right. It’s not surprising some Jews, like non-Jews, vote for the far right as a reaction to this threat.”

Under Marine Le Pen, party officials for the first time began courting Jewish votes by addressing letters to their communities. One such letter was sent this month by Julien Leonardelli, a party regional secretary from the Toulouse area, to a local Jewish community center that assailants earlier this year attacked with firebombs.

Leonardelli wrote of his “grave concern at the increase of anti-Semitic attacks” in France, which he said were the result of irresponsible immigration policies by the Socialist Party and the UMP party of former President Nicolas Sarkozy.

“As a National Front representative and spokesperson for Marine Le Pen, I express deep indignation over these acts and assure all our Jewish compatriots of our full support in the fight against all forms of anti-Semitism,” Leonardelli wrote.

Within the party, such efforts have prompted a backlash from the old guard, including Le Pen’s father and Gollnisch, who wrote a 1,700-word blog post earlier this month in response to the IFOP survey in which he bemoaned the party’s failure to follow the ideological course set by its founders.

After Le Pen briefly removed her father’s blog from the party website after he said that a Jewish singer should be “put in the oven,” he accused his daughter of cowering before “the blood hounds that constantly search for anti-Semitism.”

“She is being criticized internally within National Front for her choices because there is still an anti-Semitic, Holocaust-denying element within the party,” Ciardi said.

With Jews representing less than 1 percent of the French population, the bump in support is negligible in electoral terms. But the survey by the IFOP polling company grabbed headlines in major publications because it was seen as a worrisome indicator that a party once shunned by the mainstream is gaining traction.

“The glass ceiling that prevented National Front from becoming a majority party is beginning to seriously crack,” Valerie Igounet, a historian who specializes in the French far right, told Le Figaro.

Among Jewish leaders, the party remains well beyond the pale. CRIF President Roger Cukierman recently told the RCJ Jewish radio station that Le Pen’s disavowals of anti-Semitism are mere “lip service” from a party that still harbors “Holocaust deniers and anti-Semites in it ranks.”

But even he credited Le Pen with “taking care not to offend our community and making a step in the right direction.”

    Id like a bit of clarification please.

    Just Who or Whom in or when has Germany, Sweden, Finland, Ireland, Scotland, Norway, Iceland, Switzerland, Holland, Belgium, Italy exploited or warred with anyone in the muslim world?

    I think that logic is quite flawed and false to say these nations warred and exploited muslims or Africans when it is not true-except perhaps Belgium in the Congo-but great advances and infrastructure was brought there in trade.
    Thank you

    ed note–Congo?

    Algeria
    Libya
    Sudan
    Somalia
    Egypt
    Morocco
    Afghanistan
    the entirety of the Levant and greater Middle East

    This is just a short list of countries the west has either invaded, destroyed, colonized or exploited over the course of the last 400 years. As far as those countries who were not directly involved, they have been tacitly involved through their membership in NATO, the EU, etc.

    Any party will be thrown to the fringe or they will succumb and be infiltrated. Marine cowered had to or die. The article says Jew is less than 1% of the population. The point is the point.

    “…The link above describes fairly well the process by which racism and Islamophobia have been normalized in France except for one key point: Nicolas Sarkozy (Jew) did everything he did not because he was incompetent, but because it was his aim right from the outset to clear the road for Marine Le Pen (Gentile). Once we understand that the rise of the far-right is all part of the Zionist plan, everything else falls into place…” http://aryanism.net/politics/multiethnic-society/

    Furthermore, I always find it funny when people use the old-colonial argument to justify the enslavement and murder of other peoples, “well, we brought them western civilization too…”.

    I would have to agree with Mark Glenn, and Adolf Hitler:

    “The Whites have carried to these (colonial) people the worst that they could carry: the plagues of the world: materialism, fanaticism, alcoholism, and syphilis. Moreover, since what these people possessed on their own was superior to anything we could give them, they have remained themselves… The sole result of the activity of the colonizers is: they have everywhere aroused hatred.” – Adolf Hitler (7th February 1945).

    Thanks for the response. Still trying to see your logic….

    So YOU Claim that nations like Ireland, divided and conquered and made a member of the EU about 2 decades ago, is now deserving the forced diversity of 3rd world blacks and muslims into her nation, though Ireland herself hasnt warred with another nation except England in the last 1000 years and has invaded no nation?

    Same with Switzerland, Norway, Finland, Sweden et al. Or Germany being flooded with Turks and Somalis. Or Italians the same.
    One has to go back 400 or so years to find wars they were involved in, and they were not colonial wars but fought with other Euro nations.

    What exactly is your point?
    You say the West. But THE WEST is chiefly England, America, Canada doig the heavy lifting as far as war and funding goes.
    Yet it is not those nations impacted nearly as much as Euro nations mentioned who have done no warring, only part of a union to trade and have their currency inflated by these organization and yet YOU claim THEY deserve this fate of cultural destruction via invasion of their lands?

    Would you at the ugly truth describe yourself as sadistic, anti European or anti white in any way?

    ed note–firstly, let’s call things for what they are–‘anti-white’ is the new ‘anti-Semitism’. Just as paranoid Jews use the charge of ‘anti-Semitism’ to stifle all criticism of their abberent actions, likewise ‘white’ activists do the same thing. It is a rallying cry and a way of shutting down all legitimate, intelligent debate on whatever subject is being discussed.

    Next, no one is saying that the people of Europe ‘deserve’ the influx of immigration they are suffering. What we are saying is that it is the natural, inevitable outcome of Europeans invading and destroying the countries where these people once lived and who now have no choice but to become refugees. End your invasions of their countries and likewise their invasions of yours will end as well.

    To the TUT editor:
    Do you deny that vile Zionists are behind organizing the utterly disproportionate influx
    of African, Arabian, Asian and Eastern-European immigrants into the small West of Europe,
    into the Occident as whole?

    The Zionist Barbara Lerner Spectre says so in the YT Video:
    Barbara Lerner Spectre calls for the destruction of Christian European ethnic societies.

    The vile racist Rabbi Emanuel Rabinovitch said in 1952:
    “White women – must – cohabit with members of dark races, white men with black women.
    Thus the white race will disappear, for the mixing of the dark with the white means
    the end of the white man and our most dangerous enemy will become only a memory.
    We shall embark upon an era of 10,000 years of peace and plenty, the Pax Judaica,
    and our race will rule undisputedly over the world. Our superior intelligence will easily
    enable us to retain mastery over a world of dark peoples.”

    The vile genocidist Noel Ignatiev, Jewish Harvard professor and editor of
    Race Traitor Magazine, wrote in the Washington Times, on 4 September 2002:
    “We intend to keep bashing the dead white males, and the live ones, and the females
    too, until the social construct known as the White Race is destroyed.
    Not deconstructed, but destroyed.”

    Do you really believe that the elitists of European countries that have looted
    other nations (Ireland never did) have shared their loot with the working classes???

    FYI, recently 80.000 new African immigrants were dumped on the shores of Ireland.
    The small Irish population has been for hundreds of years oppressed, demoralized,
    looted, genocided, driven from their ancestral land and homes and displaced
    by settlers of the Anglo-Saxon Zionists, yet these Irish people are famous for having
    been the most generous people of all with non-stop sharing the little money
    they worked for with Africa, and any other country in crisis.

    Do you believe that the working class people anywhere ever had, or ever will have
    a grain of influence on the politics of their deceitful, impotent Judaic “democracies”?
    Or, that the working class slaves get everything given to them on a silver plate,
    and all people live in luxury in Europe?

    Do you deny that the working class people throughout Judaic-European history
    have protested endlessly, that countless people have been tortured, thrown into prisons,
    or died in the fights against the tyranny of their corrupt governments
    and corrupt priesthood?

    Do you now say that the weaponless working class slaves should topple their
    despotic regimes?
    How ??? Tell me, HOW ???

    How appalling of you to accuse the white European people overrun by tsunamis of
    by Zionists organized enforced mega-immigration of culture clashing immigrants.
    of suffering from spme same mental disease called anti-semitism.

    Arabia is huge.
    Asia is huge.
    Africa is huge.
    Eastern Europe is huge.
    The west of Europe is tiny compared to these gigantic realms.

    I can’t understand why the people living in these huge realms who are caught
    up in the ruthless Zionist colonization & wars do not move into countries
    with the same cultural traditions.
    Can you explain that to me?

    It must be that they are cunningly brainwashed with the Zio-slogan:
    Go and get back what was stolen from you.

    We now all know who the biggest colonialists, thieves and genociders were/are:
    The landless Zionists who started their reign of patriarchal terror in
    matriarchal Greater Europe some 4000 thousand of years ago.

    Your comment here is pure Zio-propaganda against white people.
    Totally depressing, and shows that there is no hope for humanity.

    You know well that colonialism stems from patriarchal Judaism,
    but it is now clear to me that you will deny till the end of times
    that patriarchal Judaist colonialism, looting, misogyny, rape and genocide
    was alien to the minds of the matriarchal people in the Middle & Near East
    and Europe, indeed alien to the pre-patriarchal whole wide world !!!

    Alas, you are afraid of true history, because studying true history
    exposes the fact that the patriarchal system is pure fascism.
    Attacking the white people for wanting to preserve their white culture
    compounds the fact that from Abrahamic and patriarchal men
    we have nothing to expect that is of true value for the liberation of humanity
    from the fascist patriarchal system that has barbarized men, demoralized people,
    and is bend on exterminating humanity.

    Peace.

    ed note–for the life of me, I will never understand the short-circuiting that takes place in the minds of people like you. And yes, I DO believe that ‘anti-white’ is the new ‘anti-Semitism’ charge. All one needs to do is look at your comment above as proof of it. Substitute ‘white’ or ‘european’ with ‘Jew’ or ‘Jewish’, mix a few other items around, and it might as well be an op-ed appearing on Forward or Algemeiner.

    Ok, for the record now (not that it will do any good, as experience has taught me on occasions too numerous to count, that no matter how clearly, unequivically and unambiguously I say the following, it will fly through one ear and out the other and you will continue on as if I had said nothing) here is the position we maintain here at this website-

    1. Immigration, both in Europe and America, is a problem, and the peoples of all said places mal-affected by immigration have every right to deal with it in whatever manner their political systems allow.

    and–

    2. The primary culprits utilizing immigration as a means of placing social/demographic pressure on Europe and America are Jews working for powerful organized Jewish interests.

    HOWEVER, it must also be understood that one of the PRIMARY components to creating/facilitating the immigration problem is the displacement and deliberate instability being wrought on countries peopled by brown skinned individuals, and those bringing this displacement and instabtility are ‘white’ countries found in Europe and the Americas. Whether it is centuries of colonialism and exploitation or whether it is through the mechanism of war that–as far as the Middle East is concerned–has been going on since WWI, the reason these people are leaving their countries and coming to yours/ours because white armies are/have been invading THEIR countries and bringing with them war, devastation, displacement, etc.

    How many boatloads of refugees from Syria, Gaza, Egypt, Libya, etc, have to arrive on the shores of Europe, fleeing from wars that have been facilitated by ‘white’ countries, before people like you can/will do the simple math in seeing that it is you who are creating the very problems you are crying about now?

    I am sure however that despite all this, I will receive the obligatory response bemoaning what is befalling Europe, with quote after quote by powerful Jewish leaders extolling immigration as a weapon of war and then it will be topped off by accusing this website of engaging in ‘anti-whiteism’.

    Thankyou Mark Glenn once again for your wisdom, honesty and forthrightedness in your words! I hope the ‘White Nationalists’ reading your apt and correct responses to their illogical and clone like droning on about ‘the poor whites’ and ‘immigration’ are finally making an impression, even if only in small increments. Facts are facts. The European invasion to ‘The Americas’ is prime example of this. So many times these individuals make the erroneous claim as to ‘America’ being a ‘White Nation’ and other such bogus assertions. And to Chris#3; LOVE your quote from Adolf Hitler! He was indeed a great man. Vilified to no end by the supremacist jews.

    My Arab girlfriend asked me this question long ago, “What did we ever do to you that you brought this shit into our land?” I am sure there are many countries, from our own, and other continents, that are asking the same question of us. I watched not long ago, an African man from Britain, accent and all ask, “If you steal the wealth from our lands, how can you be surprised that we emigrate to your “White countries”. “We are just following the money and livelihoods you stole from us. We would love to stay in Our Own lands. You have made it nearly impossible for us to do this”. Now, back to my girlfriends original question. How would you Mr and Mrs White Euro/American preservationist, how would you answer this question and still make your point relevant?
