Dogs and Cats Hating Together

Amidst reports of indifference to anti-Semitic violence in France, comes this odd story of French extremist Jewish and neo-Nazis working together online to incite hatred against Mulims:

    Members of extreme-right groups were prepared to set aside their anti-Semitic feelings to share Web space and know-how with extremist pro-Israeli campaigners, amid a rise in violence in the Middle East, the study found.

    “This is a new phenomenon,” Mouloud Aounit, head of the MRAP group which published the 170-page report, said Thursday.

    “We wanted to ring an alarm bell over the worrying development of this form of racism which is not only virtual, but has also spread to everyday life,” he said.

    The report said 26 Web sites, traced to right-wing and Jewish extremists groups in France, operated from the same server in the United States between 1999 and March this year.

    Members of the groups also shared advice on how to send messages without leaving electronic trails.

    Investigators believed the sites were taken down because of disagreement between the groups over the U.S.-led war in Iraq, with Jewish extremists supporting the action but some French far-rightwingers against it.

    French police had no immediate reaction to the report and France’s main Jewish organization, CRIF, was not immediately available for comment.

    Aounit said the unlikely alliance could resurface soon. [Reuters]

The enemy of my enemy is less an enemy than my enemy. Hatred is a powerful bond. That Jews would in any way cooperate with Nazis would indicate an utter loss of direction.
