British National Party: Yesterday’s Enemy, Today’s Ally?
by Bill Levinson
The British National Party came to our (favorable) attention via “The Stoning,” which was posted by rockchickhoney at YouTube.
Love and support a free Iran, love, support and respect the troops, love and support Israel, vote BNP if you are British. Islamic extremists and illegals should be deported. Our great countries are being contaminated with filth and we are all in danger of losing our freedom. Fight this menace!! Check out my video exposing CAIR and click on the link provided. If you’re a Jew hater, get the **** off my channel. Jews are our friends, Islam is the enemy!!
The British National Party was once a racist and anti-Semitic organization that, at least according to Wikipedia, engaged in Holocaust denial. Under the leadership of Nick Griffin, however, its focus has changed to support of Israel and opposition to Islamic supremacy.
In “Nationalism and Israel,” the BNP acknowledges its past promotion of anti-Semitism, recognizes it as a self-destructive mistake, and identifies the real enemy in no uncertain terms.
- The BNP has moved on in recent years, casting off the leg-irons of conspiracy theories and the thinly veiled anti-Semitism which has held this party back for two decades. The real enemies of the British people are home grown Anglo-Saxon Celtic liberal-leftists who seek to destroy the family as the building blocks of society and impose multiculturalism on a reluctant indigenous population and the Crescent Horde – the endless wave of Islamics who are flocking to our shores to bring our island nations into the embrace of their barbaric desert religion.
In addition, a Google search on site:bnp.org.uk and “Jews” does not produce vicious anti-Semitic material, in contrast to searches on site:moveon.org and “Jews” (in 2006) and site:my.barackobama.com and “Jews” (2008). The searches on site:bnp.org.uk and “Jews” often turn up unequivocal condemnations of anti-Semitism instead, along with condemnations of Israel’s enemies that make Likudniks look like Kumbaya-singers. This at least opens the possibility of collaboration with the BNP against the common enemy of Civilization, and positive influence to remove the last vestiges of racialism from the BNP. We can appeal to the writings of Rudyard Kipling for the latter objective.
The BNP and Anti-Semitism: A Response to the Board of Deputies adds unequivocal condemnation of anti-Semitism:
The BNP has made its position clear many times. We are not ‘Zionists’, our overall concern is to look after the interests of our own country, and not to bother ourselves with or interfere in the affairs of other nations. But we have repeatedly denounced the neo-Nazi cranks who infest the fringes of British politics, and we reject anti-Semitism as part of a dangerous and outdated cycle of last-century hostility between Jews and Gentiles – a hostility that can only benefit our mutual enemy, Islamic imperialism.
Loyal British Jews are our natural allies in the fight against the Islamic fundamentalists who want to destroy the Western civilisation so many of whose core values we hold in common.
We do not agree with the BNP’s opposition to interracial marriage, but it is hard to condemn the BNP while many Jews oppose intermarriage with Gentiles:
When the Chief Rabbi a few years ago wrote a book entitled “Will Our Grandchildren Be Jewish?” he articulated precisely the same concern that we have for the future of our people in the same overcrowded multi-cult nightmare that threatens traditional Jewish and British identities alike. Just because a Jew wants to preserve and celebrate his ancestral culture and identity doesn’t make him a ‘hater’ of Gentiles, and nor does our wanting to preserve and celebrate our ancestral culture and identity make us ‘haters’ of Jews, or any other ethnic group for that matter.
Furthermore, it seems that British anti-Semitism is to be found elsewhere than the BNP:
In London there is a particular problem – ‘Red Ken’. One Jewish BNP supporter puts it like this:-
Q. Who Compared a Jewish journalist to a Nazi guard?
* Portrayed young British Jews as potential soldiers in the Israeli army, thus raising the accusation of “dual loyalty” (it is well-known that only Israeli citizens can serve in their country’s army)?
* Edited a newspaper which ran a cartoon showing then-Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin dressed in an SS Uniform and captioned with the words “The Final Solution” in Nazi-style Gothic script?
* Embraced Sheikh Yusuf al Qaradawi, a leading ideologue of Islamist terror and an avowed anti-Semite?
A. Not the BNP but Ken Livingstone.
The BNP also shares our view of the Third World, as shown by The Muslim march the BBC didn’t let you see
The violence broke out as the largely Third World mob marched to the Israeli embassy, burned Israeli flags and hurled missiles including signs, crowd control barriers and fireworks at police officers.
Chanting “Allah Akbar” and other Islamist slogans, the Third World mob, all of whom have been welcomed into Britain by the immigration policies of both Tories and Labour, eventually surrounded the heavily outnumbered police on two sides.
The riot in London has once again underlined the inevitable consequences of mass Third World immigration. These people have not ‘become British’ but have instead brought their culture, way of life, belief systems and moral codes with them, and are simply colonising Britain.
The British National Party has consistently warned against this process, and has been the only party which has linked immigration, asylum and Islamist terrorism, arguing that the primary cause of terrorism in Britain today is allowing the Middle East conflict to be imported onto these shores.
Note that this piece does not even attempt to morally equate Israel and Palestinians; instead, it denounces non-assimilable Third World immigrants as the human refuse they are. Here, meanwhile, is what “Nationalism and Israel” has to say about Hezbollah terrorists.
These so called ‘Nationalists’ that attack Israel at the whim of the media can also be found standing shoulder to shoulder with Far Left activists, Communists, the United Nations and various repugnant Islamic terrorist groups, and yet never seem to think about the logic of them doing so. Any ‘ alliance’ that involves nationalists agreeing with the media and communists etc is based either on stupidity or a misunderstanding of the nature of the issue. They should start understanding the future, instead of navel gazing into the past.
Hezbollah are a terrorist group whose aims are to destroy Israel and then fight for a global Jihad and exterminate all non-Islamics and impose a global Islamic caliphate. Negotiation with such groups is a waste of time. It’s a ‘Them or Us’ situation. (6) You cannot negotiate with a rabid dog, you can only kill it. [We wonder if they borrowed this line from our cartoon.] Those that say that negotiation is possible with Hezbollah fail to understand that the aims of Hezbollah are not based on rational politics, they are based on theological absolutism. They do not want to negotiate with us, they just want to destroy us. Therefore terror must be met with terror.
The fact that ‘Nationalists’ are busy using the same facile, emotive and asinine language as the allegedly ‘Zionist controlled media’ in their increasingly shrill reportage on the dispute in the nationalist movement, shows how far they have become lost in their own political psychosis. The fact that the British media has become the European propaganda wing of Hezbollah and churns out endless montages of wounded children, old men and women whilst never showing any footage of dead Hezbollah terrorists, blown up Hezbollah weapons dumps and footage of bombed Hezbollah camps should get some people thinking.
For decades the lunatic fringe of the Nationalist movement has said that the media is controlled by the ‘Jews’ and Israel.
The BNP not only does not say that Jews control the media, it denounces this statement as “lunatic fringe” material. On the other hand, MoveOn.org’s disgraced Action Forum and my.barackobama.com both contained numerous Web pages about Jewish control of the media. The article continues to support (in the future, as it was written in 2006), Israel’s recent Gaza campaign.
As a Nationalist I can say that I support Israel 100 % in their dispute with Hezbollah. In fact, I hope they wipe Hezbollah off the Lebanese map and bomb them until they leave large greasy craters in the cities where their Islamic extremist cantons of terror once stood. The 21st Century is the Islamic Century. Unless we start to resist the threat of Islamic extremism then within 100 years the West will have become Eurabia.
During the Second World War when we faced VI and V2 rockets and missiles targeting our cities we reacted with a campaign of targeted aerial bombings and strikes across Germany.
We have made the same argument here, and we added Sir Arthur Harris’ observation that, as the Nazis sowed the wind with their own terror bombing campaign, they had to reap the whirlwind.
We therefore contend that it is worthwhile to at least approach the British National Party with an alliance that would include the deployment of military-grade propaganda to expose the menace of militant “Islam.” We would also propose to the BNP an idea that would move it into the political mainstream while eliminating all vestiges of racial politics. The basic idea is that a person’s merit is defined by his or her culture as opposed to race or ethnicity. A person of Euro-American culture, such as a Hindu, Sikh, African-American, or Japanese, is “one of us” while a person of Islamic supremacist culture is “one of them.” This was clearly recognized by Rudyard Kipling, in an era when it was socially acceptable to be racist:
With ‘is mussick on ‘is back,
‘E would skip with our attack,
An’ watch us till the bugles made “Retire.”
An’ for all ‘is dirty ‘ide,
‘E was white, clear white, inside
When ‘e went to tend the wounded under fire!
You Lazarushian-leather Gunga Din!
Tho’ I’ve belted you an’ flayed you,
By the livin’ Gawd that made you,
You’re a better man than I am, Gunga Din!
Kipling’s protagonist therefore acknowledges that it is Gunga Din’s behavior (tending the wounded under fire) and not his race (dark-skinned Asian Indian) that defines him as a man, and in fact a better one than the light-skinned British soldier who often abused him. The same idea comes through in Ballad of East and West:
OH, East is East, and West is West, and never the twain shall meet,
Till Earth and Sky stand presently at God’s great Judgment Seat;
But there is neither East nor West, Border, nor Breed, nor Birth,
When two strong men stand face to face, tho’ they come from the ends of the earth!
In other words, it doesn’t matter where you were born, or whether you are white, black, or something in between; your behavioral choices define you. Were the BNP to adopt this position, we think its political fortunes would improve very rapidly.
