Likud hosts Israeli visit by Austria’s Strache

You may recall the 2010 visit to Israel and some West Bank settlements by a delegation of far-right European politicians, hosted by a group of far-right Israeli politicians.
Among the visitors was Heinz-Christian Strache, head of the Austrian Freedom Party (FPÖ), formerly led by the late antisemite and Nazi sympathizer Joerg Haider.
Perhaps Strache’s Israeli hosts hoped [...]

National Action’s ‘White Man March’

Today National Action plan to march through the centre of Liverpool. For some background to this extreme far-right group, here’s a link to last year’s cross-post from Student Rights, and their report on a brutal attack on a man because he ‘looked Asian’.  The neo-Nazi group insists that only white people can be British and seeks [...]

Downplaying the US domestic terror threat

If people on the Left are often too eager to downplay the Islamic aspect of Islamic terrorism, many on the Right are equally anxious to do the same with the extreme-right and anti-government nature of domestic terrorism in the US.
On the 20th anniversary of the bombing of the Oklahoma City federal building, which killed 168 [...]

Pro-Kremlin party hosts extreme Right at St. Petersburg conference

After this, how can any “leftwing” apologists for Vladimir Putin even pretend that he and his regime are interested in “fighting fascism”– in Ukraine or anywhere else?
Russia’s appeal to Europe’s fringe was on full show Sunday [in St. Petersburg] at the International Russian Conservative Forum, a conference organized by a pro-Kremlin ultranationalist party to cement [...]

This is a guest post by Jurek Molnar
It is a great opportunity for me to provide for the readers and commentators of Harry’s Place some useful insights into the widely recognized but nevertheless often misunderstood phenomenon of PEGIDA. The purpose of this little essay is to introduce those readers who are not so familiar with [...]

Counter-terrorism awareness week

Nick Cohen, writing in today’s Observer, offers some serious reflections on the dangers posed by the government’s recent proposals:
I suspect that Theresa May’s order that internet and mobile phone companies must allow the police to identify who was using a device and when will probably fail to stir you too. Essential clues for 21st-century crime [...]

National Action appear at University of Leeds

This is a cross-post from Student Rights
In July Student Rights reported on efforts by the neo-Nazi group National Action to target several London universities with posters.
At the time we wrote that institutions should be concerned about the group’s efforts to target campuses, and that further activity was likely.
We have now uncovered a photograph which shows up to [...]

Nazi sympathizer invades pitch at World Cup (see update)

It doesn’t say much for security at the World Cup in Brazil that an asshole with pro-Nazi messages on his torso was able to invade the pitch during the Germany-Ghana match. And nobody seemed in much of a hurry to remove him.
Said asshole was finally ushered off the field by the Ghanian player Sulley Muntari, [...]

Another far-Right attack on US law enforcement

In case you missed it (and you probably did), there has been another attack on law enforcement officers by an extreme-right ideologue.
Fortunately– unlike in Las Vegas last week– nobody was killed.
Talking Points Memo reports:

The man accused of shooting two law enforcement members in California, including a Bureau of Land Management ranger, has had at [...]
