An illustration of this can be seen from the results of the recent Greek election. This was won by a party characterised as far left, but they have lost little time joining hands with their supposed enemies on the far right. The common cause? Anti-Semitism. This from Kiwiblog
The Herald reports:
Alexis Tsipras was sworn in as the new Prime Minister of Greece, after his radical left-wing movement forged an unwieldy alliance with a far-right party. …
Tsipras’s party, Syriza, scored a historic victory in Greece’s election but fell short of an outright majority in the 300-seat Parliament, gaining 149 seats. While he moved quickly to arrange an awkward coalition with the Independent Greeks party, who won 13 seats, it immediately raised doubts over the longevity of the new Government.
The Independent Greeks leader claimed last month that Jews in Greek pay less tax than other citizens. So the communists have gone into alliance with an anti-semitic nationalist party. This will not end well.
Similar economic conditions to those prevailing in the inter-war years last century are leading to the same search for a scapegoat for their economic woes with the same predictable result. It is what it has been for centuries, the Jew. Anti-Semitism is on the rise throughout Europe. French Jews are fleeing to Israel in large numbers to escape the escalating attacks from Muslims, highlighted by the terror attacks in Paris this month.
More Jewish people are immigrating to Israel from France than any other country, figures revealed on Friday.
The statistics show France has now overtaken the former Communist countries of Eastern Europe as the world's main source of Jewish emigration, and highlight growing insecurity among France's 500,000-strong Jewish population – the biggest in Europe – after a wave of anti-Semitic attacks since June.
The brutal and violent attacks are mostly by youths of Muslim origin, citing Israel's conflict with Hamas in Gaza. In July, for instance, pro-Palestinian demonstrations twice erupted into anti-Jewish riots that ended with attempts to attack synagogues.
The world is becoming more unstable as strong economies falter under the weight of failed political philosophies. Nationalism is on the rise again as a counterbalance to the growth in super-national organisations seeking to dominate their diverse cultures. Super-national organisations like the European Union, the United Nations and the European Court are flexing their muscles by trying to imposing their sovereignty over nation states.
It is all fascinating but as Kiwiblog says this will not end well.
