A-G Orders Inquiry Into neo-Nazi Web Site

Attorney General Elyakim Rubinstein yesterday ordered an investigation into the operators of an Israeli neo-Nazi Internet site in the Russian language.

According to a report on the Web site's activity that appeared in Haaretz last month, the site contains racist comments against both Jews and Arabs. It also presents a list of addresses of stores that sell books on Holocaust denial and neo-Nazi poetry.

The site also includes a practical suggestion to enlist in the Israel Defense Forces in a combat unit, in order to get weapons and begin to shoot at Arabs.

The site's operators are suspected of incitement to violence, racism and Holocaust denial.

The site also displays pictures showing the activists of the organization, "The White Israeli Union," some of them in IDF uniforms, on the backdrop of military bases and saluting with raised arms.

The text on the site is divided into sub-sections. There is a section on "Who we are," in which the managers of the site introduce themselves as "Ilya from Haifa and Andrei from Arad," and are described as "people who have pride in themselves and are sick of living among the dirty bastards."

The "Who our enemies are" section extensively documents all the organization's "enemies" - Jews, Arabs, immigrants from all Muslim republics of the former Soviet Union, Moroccans and foreign workers. The site collectively terms all these groups "the black-asses."

The guest forum on the site includes various other viewpoints too - for example, that hatred of Jews should lead to an alliance with the Arabs.

The site also features a "codex" section of rules of behavior for members of the organization - among them, respect for parents, and also "not to be miserly, because a miser is a Zhid," a derogatory Russian word for a Jew.

Notably, the site also includes a rich section of jokes, the greater part of which is devoted to all kinds of funny incidents in concentration camps that end badly for the Jews.
