Finnish Amnesty leader use Nazi blood libel against the state of Israel

Frank Johansson would easily been granted membership in the Nazi party of Adolf Hitler.

Frank Johansson is the head of Amnesty International in Finland. He calls the state of Israel for a “scum state”.

Writing in his blog, which appears on the Web site of Finland’s third largest newspaper Iltalehti, Johansson wrote on Monday that:

“A friend of mine who works in Israel was visiting [and] while piling wood in the shed, we got to [talking about] his favourite topic. [After] several years of residence in the Holy Land, he has come to the conclusion that ‘Israel is a scum state.’ Based on my own visit[s], which occurred during the 1970s and for the last time in the 1990s, I agree.”

An English translation of Johansson’s blog first appeared Tuesday on the Web site Tundra Tabloids, a pro-Israel blog that monitors anti-Israeli sentiments in the Finnish media and blogosphere.

Speaking from Finland, Kenneth Sikorski, who runs the Web site and picked up Johansson’s remarks, told The Jerusalem Post that Johansson’s comments are “absolutely atrocious and indicative of a problem of systematic anti-Semitism.”

Asked why he termed Israel a “scum state,” Johansson told the Post in a telephone interview that it was because Israel has “repeatedly flouted international law,” and due to his “personal experiences inside and outside of Israel with meeting Israelis.”

NGO Monitor chief Gerald Steinberg condemned Johansson’s remarks in the context of his organization as a whole. The head of the watchdog organization, which tracks anti-Israel activity among NGOs, told the Post in an e-mail on Tuesday that “Amnesty International has promoted an intense anti-Israel ideology, resulting in statements like these”.

“Such one-sided ideological campaigns, with false allegations of war crimes, are entirely inconsistent with Amnesty’s claim to support ethical principles and universal human rights”.

My comment:

That the head of Amnesty International in Finland in the Nazi party leader Adolf Hitler seems to be using the same language in regards to Jews, is a disgrace.

Adolf Hitler.

Lets see that Hitler wrote about the Jews in his book “Mein Kampf:.

” The black-haired Jewish youth lies in wait for hours on end, satanically glaring at and spying on the unsuspicious girl whom he plans to seduce, adulterating her blood and removing her from the bosom of her own people. The Jew uses every possible means to undermine the racial foundations of a subjugated people”.
-Adolf Hitler (Mein Kampf)

“…the personification of the devil as the symbol of all evil assumes the living shape of the Jew”.
-Adolf Hitler (Mein Kampf)

  1. I’m very sorry to read, that this kind of comment came from our nation.
    We have here suprisingly many Christians, who openly support Israel. And many non-Christians at least are not against Israel. But it seems like most of the leaders – of this country and some big organizations – are very much against Israel. That is a big shame.
    I think there has to be some kind of unofficial agreement among the leaders that they are against. I don’t know how else they could be so like-minded.

    1. Dear Mikko.


      Thanks for this comment. I took my first political exam at the University level on the security and defense policies of the Finnish Government during Paasikivi and Kekkonens years of Governance. ” Politics as the art of doing what’s possible”.

      I am like you, very troubled by today’s Finnish elite being so “Islam-friendly”, and old ally of the Nazis. The Finnish elite seems to have completely forgotten their own past. Many people in Finland have still not forgotten.

  2. Finland doesn’t suffer scornful inferiority that much as the finnish foreign minister Alexander Stubb visited Gaza “He stressed the need for freedom of movement for people and goods in and out”

    Amnesty international reported on Finnish arms trade that flouts EU regulations, These dealings made Finland the second largest provider of missile technology to Israel, playing second fiddle only to the United States. Finland is also Israel’s ninth most important supplier of arms and ammunitions, according to Amnesty International

    While Israeli flags are being burned in many European capitals in the aftermath of the dead flotillaraid, thousands of people took part a pro-Israel rally in Helsinki on Thursday.

    The Finnish capital’s streets were filled with Israeli and Finnish flags as participants marched towards the port while chanting slogans in support of the IDF and waving banners protesting what they claimed was the biased media coverage of the flotilla raid.

    There are churches where the Israeli flag is proudly displayed side-by-side with the Finnish national colors, and where entire Christian congregations recite “Hatikva” first in Hebrew and then in Finnish.

    More finnish troops to Afghanistan, Meanwhile, finland increased its troops in the Afghanistan, its current deployment of about 120 soldiers by more than 50.

    Finland hopes to withdraw its 180 troops from war-torn Afghanistan at the earliest, though it could take anywhere between three and six years, foreign minister Alexander Stubb said Tuesday in capital Helsinki.

    “In practice, this means anything between three and six years,” Stubb told reporters after speaking at a foreign policy forum.

    In addition, Finland appointed a homosexual lobbyist as its new foreign minister on April 1, replacing former minister Ilkka Kanerva.

    Alexander Stubb, who served as a Member of European Parliament for Finland, was chosen to replace Kanerva following a scandal in which the media revealed over 200 sexually suggestive text messages Kanerva sent to a stripper.

    Stubb, who turned 40 the day he was nominated for the position of foreign minister by Finland’s National Coalition Party, Kokoomus, has served as a MEP since 2004. He is the vice-president of the European Parliament’s Gay and Lesbian rights intergroup, a lobbyist body that ensures the goals of gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transsexuals are implemented in the decisions made by EU institutions.

  3. As much as I do not condone antisemitism, why should there be special protections for speech against the Jewish people? A hate crime is a hate crime. And I do find it disturbing that there is an entire network of people who sit around monitoring the press and attempting to threaten them into submission with wildly subjective accusations. But its okay because they are Jewish and defending Israel?

    Free speech is apparently fine as long as I don’t speak out against Israel? That’s what it says to me.
