Some years ago I came across a Finnish Leftist blog describing her frustration with her German Leftist co-ideologues during a summer camp exchange. Her fellow Leftists refrained from using what could be described as, classic Jew hatred rhetoric, against the Jewish state of Israel. However, what she saw as a weakness, was actually moral character.

Berlin – A German Labor Federation has taken legal action to block the promotion of an employee who engaged in anti-Semitic activity on his Facebook page.
The case against the union member, who crossed out a Star of David and wrote “F*** You Israel”on his Facebook page, is slated to be litigated in the fall, according to the website of the Confederation of German Trade Unions (DGB). The posting remained on his Facebook page for over a year.
The 35-year-old union member, who is a Muslim, previously sought to a remove Christian crosses from his co-workers’ work stations because they injured his personal feelings. The local works council, as well as DGB, argued his promotion would disrupt “industrial peace” in the company.
The employee works for Hasco, a global supplier tool and mold-making equipment, which is located in the city of Lüdenscheid in North Rhine-Westphalia.
