Jews Vilified by Bosnian-Muslim Neo-Nazi Group
A new Bosnian Neo-Nazi group, the Bosanski Pokret Nacionalnog Ponosa (Bosnian National Pride Movement), is increasingly championing anti-Semitism in the country. Ninety-five percent of its members are Muslim.
“The Jews have immense influence throughout the world—in [the domains of] politics, economy, culture, and religion,” the group writes on its website. “Freedom of speech is granted to a handful of ‘privileged’ politicians, journalists and functionaries that are puppets of the Zionist mechanism.”
According to the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), this group reveres the alliance between Muslims and Nazis during World War II. Bosnia does not ban Neo-Nazi groups, unlike many fellow European nations, in the wake of the Holocaust.
