President Obama’s relatively mild gun control proposals have provoked a blizzard of ridiculous Hitler/Nazi analogies from right wingers on Twitter. Read the comments for this page for dozens more.
International non-governmental organizations, helping mass murderers and genocidal fanatics escape justice for more than 50 years: Nazi Eichmann’s passport found in Argentina.
The passport used by notorious Nazi war criminal Adolf Eichmann to enter Argentina in 1950 has been found by accident in an archive in Buenos Aires.
The passport, still in good condition, was issued by the International Committee of the Red Cross in Geneva.
Eichmann was one of the main executors of Adolf Hitler’s ‘final solution’, the Nazi genocide of Jews during World War II.

NonParty Politics has a post with screenshot evidence of YouTube’s gross double standard of allowing truly evil jihad videos and radical Islamic propaganda, while instantly cracking down on anti-jihad videos and deleting the accounts of people who post them—even when, as in the case of Nick Gisburne, the video consists entirely of direct, factual quotations from the Koran. As NP Politics points out, this is a deliberate campaign (similar to the Diggbats campaign) by a Muslim YouTube community group to shut down the anti-jihad voices.
Allahpundit has another example of the repellent material that remains on YouTube despite being “flagged as inappropriate” many times: “Jew Watch” on YouTube.
I received at least a dozen emails from readers about an article that appeared in Israel National News, claiming that former president Jimmy Carter had issued a plea for leniency for a Nazi SS guard proven to have taken part in numerous murders of Jews. I was a little skeptical and decided to wait for confirmation before posting.
Well, here’s that confirmation, as Daniel Freedman publishes the actual handwritten note from Carter: Exclusive: Handwritten Note From Jimmy Carter Interceding for Nazi SS Guard.

But caveats are in order, because the source of the letter above has credibility problems: Neal Sher: Consider the source.

To my admittedly untrained eye, the handwriting seems to match. This is from the letter published at the New York Sun:
And this is a sample of Jimmy Carter’s handwriting (from this page):
I’m not going to post this vile video, but have a look at what YouTube is allowing on their service, while anti-jihad videos are routinely flagged as inappropriate and often removed: The Kosher Tax. (Hat tip: Carl in Jerusalem.)
The video is credited to “michbubba88.” The number 88 is code in the white power freakazoid world for the eighth letter in the alphabet, H. Two of them together stands for “Heil Hitler.” Lovely people.

Also at YouTube: at least 191 videos with the keyword “mujahideen.”

That Indian restaurant named after Adolf Hitler has been forced to change its name.
Those who run the 1,000 sq ft restaurant have removed a poster of Hitler and the swastika pasted in the restaurant following the outrage from the Jews. But they are refusing to bend further and change its name.
“I have no sympathy for Adolf Hitler. The name was just chosen because it seemed so radically different from any other restaurant name. I don’t understand why no one has raised objections to at least a dozen such brand names,” 26-year-old managing director Punit Sabhlok said.
Furiously rattling off the names of kid’s fashion labels, liquor brands and tobacco products bearing Hitler’s name, Sabhlok said similar standards would have to be applied to everybody.
“I don’t wish to change the name of my restaurant, but if they insist, I would want them to change the names of all these other brands as well. Why only me?”
From the “World Gone Nuts” file:
MUMBAI (Reuters) - A new restaurant in India’s financial hub, named after Adolf Hitler and promoted with posters showing the German leader and Nazi swastikas, has infuriated the country’s small Jewish community.
‘Hitler’s Cross’, which opened last week, serves up a wide range of continental fare and a big helping of controversy, thanks to a name the owners say they chose to stand out among hundreds of Mumbai eateries.
“We wanted to be different. This is one name that will stay in people’s minds,” owner Punit Shablok told Reuters. “We are not promoting Hitler. But we want to tell people we are different in the way he was different.”
But India’s remaining Jews — most migrated to Israel and the West over the years — say they are outraged by the gimmick. “This signifies a severe lack of awareness of the agony of millions of Jews caused by one man,” said Jonathan Solomon, chairman of the Indian Jewish Federation, the community’s umbrella organization. “We are going to stop this deification of Hitler,” he said without elaborating.
The small restaurant, its interior done out in the Nazi colors of red, white and black, also has a lounge for smoking the exotic Indian water pipe or “hookah.” Posters line the road leading up to it, featuring a red swastika carved in the name of the eatery. One slogan reads: “From Small Bites to Mega Joys.”
A huge portrait of a stern-looking Fuehrer greets visitors at the door. The cross in the restaurant’s name refers to the swastika that symbolized the Nazi regime.
“This place is not about wars or crimes, but where people come to relax and enjoy a meal,” said restaurant manager Fatima Kabani, adding that they were planning to turn the eatery’s name into a brand with more branches in Mumbai.
