Sign that’s not for tampering

INFAMOUS: The notorious sign at Auschwitz

SOME things should be taboo. Like parodying the cynical and sickening “Arbeit Macht Frei” sign on the gates of the Auschwitz death camp, where a million Jews perished.

But that’s just what a right-wing Polish TV station has done.

It changed the words of the notorious slogan from “Work sets you free” to “Reparations make you free”.

...and the parody by a Polish TV station

Republika TV thought that this would be a clever way to illustrate Poland’s demand for Second World War reparations from Germany.

Following complaints, Republika removed the graphic from its Twitter account . . . but not from its website.

So it obviously hasn’t learned that manipulation of that hateful symbol is just not on.

Alex is Ku Klux Krazy

NUTTY Alex Jones has taken conspiracy theories to a new level.

The Donald Trump-supporting radio host has said the Ku Klux Klan members rioting in Charlottesville were . . . Jewish actors.

He added on his show this week: “I mean, quite frankly, I’ve been to these events, a lot of the KKK guys with their hats off look like they’re from the cast of Seinfeld.

“Literally, they’re just Jewish actors. Nothing against Jews in general, but they are leftist Jews that want to create this clash and they go dress up as Nazis.

“They’re just up there heiling Hitler. You can tell they are totally uncomfortable — they are totally scared, and it’s all just meant to create the clash.”

Erm, OK, Alex!

Eclipsing a dictator

NEXT week’s solar eclipse in America was predicted 100 years ago by a rabbi to signal the end of North Korea.

The Yalkut Moshe, written by Rabbi Moshe ben Yisrael Benyamin in Safed in 1894, claims that when a solar eclipse occurs exactly as it will next week, at the beginning of the month of Ellul, “kings of the East will suffer great loss,” explained Rabbi Yosef Berger, the rabbi of King David’s Tomb on Mount Zion.

The eclipse will also be accompanied by storms and the death of animals, says Rabbi Berger.

He added that the “kings of the East” clearly refers to “the despotic leader of North Korea, Kim Jong-un, and the loss he will suffer if he continues to taunt President Trump”.

Seems that darkness will set over North Korea.
