This is a German TV video on neo-nazis in Israel.
Today, there are nazis not just in Croatia, in Hungary, in the United States armed forces, and elsewhere … also in Israel, where many survivors of Adolf Hitler’s horrible anti-Semitic terror live, there are not just far Right nationalists who think it is OK to collaborate with European anti-Semites … but open admirers of Hitler as well.
From the Jerusalem Post in Israel:
Suspected Israeli neo-Nazi arrested at Ben-Gurion
By YAAKOV LAPPIN
Dimitri Bogitch, headed gang that allegedly carried out hate crimes in Petah Tikva, detained upon extradition from Kyrgyzstan.
A suspected head of a neo-Nazi gang who allegedly terrorized homeless people in Petah Tikva in 2007 and filmed the attacks, was arrested in Kyrgyzstan and deported to Israel on Monday.
The suspect, Dimitri Bogitch, fled Israel in 2007 after police began investigating the gang, made up of Russian immigrants, and arrested eight suspects who have all been convicted of racist assault, illegal possession of firearms and obstructing the course of justice.
After becoming a fugitive, police put out an international arrest warrant, resulting in Monday’s deportation.
Police arrested Bogitch as soon as he landed at Ben Gurion Airport, and he will appear before the Ramle Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday for a remand hearing.

None of these films advocates fascism as a form of government, or disputes that Hitler was a nasty piece of work. But apparently there were nice fascists too – and in contemporary Western cinema we’re cheering them on. This trend represents a qualitative change in how fascism is treated on film, and demands an obvious question: Why are some film-makers trying to show followers of modernity’s most vile political doctrine in a sympathetic light?
