Hodges is currently in the employ of the Center for European Policy Analysis as its Pershing chair in strategic studies and as a partner in Berlin Global Advisors.
In a NPR op-ed Hodges, has been highly critical of President Donald Trump, condemning his “wrecking ball” approach towards America’s European allies in Brussels during a NATO summit in 2018. Hodges complains Trump, “publicly humiliated our most important allies” — mostly notably the German Chancellor, Angela Merkel. Given his once high ranking position in the U.S. military, General Hodges is curiously sympathetic to the German position. In that same NPR opinion piece he argues,
“Germany is our essential ally: We need Germany to be a part of everything that is important to us because the German brand is so respected around the world.”
Serbs and Jews are unlikely to share Hodges view of the Germans, given both communities were murdered in enormous numbers in Nazi concentration camps in World War II at the hands of the Germans and their fascist Albanian, Croat and Bosnian- Muslim collaborators. Continue reading
“There are Jews everywhere,” Hammad shouted. “We must attack every Jew on planet Earth! We must slaughter and kill them, with Allah’s help,” he said, appealing to the “seven million Palestinians abroad.”
“We will lacerate them and tear them to pieces,” he added.
According to Hammad, Palestinians in Gaza, Judea and Samaria, and all over the world have “many methods and means” “up their sleeves” that will “powerfully explode” in Israel’s face. Continue reading
“In front of the newly opened Reichstag building, former concentration camp prisoners in convict clothes protest against the trivialization of fascism”
“In Pancevo the second time plants of the chemical industry were bombed. Biting smoke makes breathing difficult. The Municipal Information Office advises citizens to leave their homes with only a gas mask or protect their eyes and airways with cloth soaked in bicarbonate. Huge columns of smoke waft into the sky and are easily recognizable from the capital of Belgrade, which is around 15 kilometers away. The on-site visit reveals the whole dimension of the destruction. The Asoterra factory is completely out of service. Toxic vapors pour from broken lines, you can still see the heavy smoke clouds of the also bombed oil refinery. For thirty-seven years, fertilizer for agriculture was produced at the plants, explains Asoterra’s director Miralem Dzindo to representatives of the international press .” Continue reading
The tactical advantage this narrative provided was significant. The victims of Nazi genocide, tiny, remnant populations of Serbs and Jews, would henceforth be recast as militaristic perpetrators of ethnic cleansing against Muslims. Once established, Serbs and Jews could do no right, irrespective of the deadly peril they faced. Each and every military response they took in defense of their national security and civilian populations would be branded as fascist aggression and condemned. Henceforth, each and every attack upon them—no matter how heinous and horrific— was not just discounted, but excused, even commended as justified retaliation.
Henceforth, as Hitler’s loyal bodyguard announced, “only muslims are slaughtered.” Continue reading
“From 1941 to 1944, Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini created a Greater Albania that was made up of Kosovo and Western Macedonia. Kosovo was regarded as the “New Albania” and “the annexed territories”, but Kosovo was part of Hitler’s Greater Albania nonetheless.”
“The Albanian government and Albanian authorities took an active part in the extermination of Albanian Jews: In June, 1943 the Albanian police chief suggested the jailing of certain Jews:
“According to our investigation the Jews listed below are dangerous because they are propaganderizing [sic] against the Axis (Rome-Berlin) and they want to organize and hold meetings. We think these people should be taken away from here as soon as possible to one of the concentration fields, because their staying here could be dangerous to the regime.” ”
“My principle is to try and kill as many Jews as possible” Continue reading
20 years ago today, U.S. President Bill Clinton, using the power of his office, went to war against the Serbian people; he attacked a tiny European nation that had been America’s ally in both World War I and World War II. The Serbian people were in bewildered, horrified disbelief. Even today, they cannot fathom why … Continue reading
“Hitler had no executioners more willing, no ally more passionate, than the Fascists of Croatia” — A. M. Rosenthal, New York Times “I must admit, I am obsessed by the criminal character of the independent state of Croatia. Even the Germans were appalled by the crimes committed in it. — Simon Wiesenthal Continue reading
Many do not know the horror of the Jasenovac concentration camp in Croatia’s Slavonia region, but it considered one of the most brutal and notorious concentration camps, run by the WWII Croatian pro-Nazi government. Holocaust Institute Historian-in-Chief Gideon Greif discusses his book on the camp with host Eylon Levy. Continue reading
“The chain of camps known as Jasenovac, located on 46 square kilometers, six times larger than Auschwitz, was actually a reflection of pure cruelty. The Ustashas enjoyed their cruelty, they enjoyed torturing people. I would say that they had perfected the death,” said Greif. Continue reading
