New Song: God is a Criminal

I wrote a song the other day! It goes like this:

 

1. God is a criminal, it isn’t hard to see

In the book of Acts He breaks the law to set the captives free

An unjust law is no law at all, compassion is the key

God is a criminal, so that’s what I want to be

 

2. God is a hippie, it isn’t hard to tell

He commands us to love our enemies and all our stuff to sell

Among the poor and prostitutes is where He likes to dwell

God is a hippie, and so am I as well

The Rise of Neo-Nazism in Greece

The far right is on the rise in Europe. Xenophobic, islamophibic and racist parties and movements have gain ground dramatically the past decade, probably fueled by the economic crisis.

In Switzerland, the Schweizerische Volkspartei, the country’s biggest party, depict immigrants as black sheep that needs to be kicked out, and they have succeeded with banning minarets.  In Hungary, the third-biggest party Jobbik has formed a paramilitary Hungarian Guard that marches in romani areas, and a Jobbik member of parliament recently said that it was time to “assess how many MPs and government members are of Jewish origin and who presents a national security risk to Hungary”. But the most worrying far-right movement in Europe is, I would say, the Greek party Golden Dawn.

Golden Dawn Symbol

Golden Dawn is the first Nazi party to occupy seats in a European parliament since the second world war. The party themselves denies being neo-Nazi, however, the evidence that Nazi ideology is an inspiration to them is enormous. Their party symbol, an ancient Greek meander, is often depicted black on a burgundy coloured background, which makes it strikingly similar to the Nazi swastika. On numerous occasions members of the party have given the Roman sallute, widely used by the Nazis, and one Golden Dawn MP has “Sieg Heil” tattooed on his arm.
