I know very little about events in Greece, so what follows rests entirely on information provided by others. But if they’re right, there’s a lot to be worried about.
A British academic currently in Greece recently sent me some information about the Golden Dawn party and some of their supporters, [...]
Although this video showing a thuggish BNP patrol harassing anti-fascists was disturbing, the furthest right parties in Britain are generally in a welcome state of disarray. This is not so in other European countries – France, Hungary and particularly Greece.
It’s chilling to read the steady stream of news stories charting the rising popularity of Golden [...]
On Tuesday Marine le Pen addressed the Cambridge Union. Not surprisingly, the decision to invite her attracted criticism. Student Rights, for example, expressed reservations:
“Universities do have a duty to uphold freedom of speech, but they are no place for the promotion of fascist views, and university authorities have a duty of care to their students [...]
It’s been quite a while since The Islamic Far Right in Britain blog sent these questions to iERA. I don’t know about you, but I’d be fascinated to hear their answers, which I’m sure would be most instructive.

Iran’s state-controlled English-language TV station Press TV– for which George Galloway still does a program, apparently gratis– interviews white supremacist/antisemite David Duke about his belief that Israel was involved in the 9/11 attacks, and reports with obvious approval that “Iran has increased the bounty on the apostate writer Salman Rushdie’s head by $500,000 [to $3.3 [...]
Supporters of and apologists for the vile English Defence League have an unfortunate habit of turning up in the comments boxes every time we post about the EDL. But I want to note the disgusting reaction of some EDL members to the conviction and sentencing of Norwegian mass murderer Anders Breivik:
…Breivik admirer, Nick Greger – [...]
A fascinating article at the Spiegel Online sets out the evidence that the PLO worked with Neo-Nazis in Germany:
The men who were arrested in the Munich house of former Waffen-SS member Charles Jochheim late on Oct. 27, 1972 were armed like soldiers on their way to the front. In one suitcase, police found three Kalashnikov [...]

Tuesday morning this week in Brussels saw a sight that should put to rest any ideas that there is anything legitimate about the leadership of the rightwing Jewish settler movement in the occupied territories, and scare the living daylights out of Jewish communities on the European continent.
Gathered in one of the large [...]
