"The Executive Committee of the World Jewish Congress... notes with alarm the growing expressions of anti-Semitism and the rise of the extremist and violently racist Chrysi Avgi (Golden Dawn) movement, which has parliamentary representation, manifest in: its open denial of the Shoah and the existence of gas chambers at Nazi death camps; a series of anti-Semitic and racist statements; and physical assaults on dark-skinned people and immigrants...On 28 March 2013, The Jewish Chronicle told us more:
Recalls with immense sadness the fact that the failure by Germany’s democratic parties to effectively combat the Nazis, led to the appointment, 80 years ago, of Adolf Hitler as German chancellor and the establishment of a murderous dictatorship that ultimately led to World War II and the Shoah;
Urges the Greek authorities to: take serious and concerted actions against Holocaust denial, anti-Semitism, racism and xenophobia; implement all relevant European laws in that domain; and unite all democratic forces against the enemies of democracy, so as not to allow society to drift into the darkness of racial hatred and anti-Semitism.
Calls on Greece to consider BANNING POLITICAL PARTIES, such as the Golden Dawn movement, which pose a serious danger to liberal democracy;
Calls on the European Union to ensure that political movements that actively espouse a platform of discrimination of ethnic or religious minorities, in contravention of the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights, are dealt with in a coordinated manner in all EU member states."
"At the recent WJC Executive Committee meeting in Thessaloniki in northern Greece attended by Greek Prime Minister Antonis Samaras... WJC President Ronald Lauder said that Golden Dawn was a 'a threat to democracy' and called them the 'new Nazis'...
In response, a post on Golden Dawn’s New York-based blog ‘Xaameriki’ called for a boycott of a list of cosmetic companies owned by Estee Lauder, which is owned by the Lauder family of which Ronald Lauder is a member. Included were Estee Lauder, Mac, Clinique, Bobbi Brown and Israeli company Aveda. Many of the companies listed, including Estee Lauder, are Jewish owned.Maram Stern, deputy secretary-general of the WJC, said: 'To announce a boycott of ‘Jewish’ companies a few days before the 80th anniversary of the first organised boycott of Jewish businesses in Germany by the Nazi government, on 1 April 1933, shows the true face of Golden Dawn. Both in words and in actions these fanatics behave like the Nazis did 80 years ago.
Once again, this is a reminder that they need to be opposed vigorously by all democratic forces, not just in Greece but everywhere they operate'...
A spokesperson for Golden Dawn said:
'We are not encouraging the boycott of Estee Lauder because it is owned by Jews, if there was a Chinese, Armenian, or Martian international institution that was attempting to undermine freedom and democracy in Greece, we would boycott them too. Our boycott is peaceful, and in the name of Greek freedom and self-determination to choose its own path'."So, the World Jewish Congress calls for a legitimate political party, popular with those who have suffered most at the hands of the international financiers, to be banned because it isn't prepared to toe the 'democratic' party line favoured by a similar elite body. Responding in kind, Golden Dawn calls for a ban on Estée Lauder products. Ronald Lauder, current head of the WJC, being the heir to the Lauder fortune.
The deputy secretary-general of the WJC then plays the nasty Nazi card, complaining that the counter ban is redolent 'of the first organised boycott of Jewish businesses in Germany.'
In other words, ladies and gents, the Jew can call for an entirely legitimate Greek political party to be banned but the Greeks who are thus threatened cannot then call for a range of cosmetics to be treated similarly.
Instead of telling these jumped-up finger-waggers where to go, the Greek Prime Minister was cowed by the implied threat and, subsequently, promised to enact legislation 'completely intolerant to violence and racism.' National governments had to 'be very careful not to let them (Neo-Nazis) gain ground as they did in the 1930s,' he said.
You see, ladies and gents, democracy in the western world doesn't mean what you think it means. It means whatever the Ronald Lauders, the Maram Sterns and their bought Prime Ministers want it to mean.
As we also know to our cost.
Boycott Estée Lauder.
