What's In A Name?

Well, a lot when your friends call you Hitler and you are running for candidacy in the Fascistine elections :

Jamal "Hitler" Roub [left] On His Way To Carry Out An Excecution

JENIN, West Bank The candidate's name is Jamal Abu Roub, but everyone here calls him Hitler because, well, that is the name he has answered to quite comfortably since he was a teenager.
Roub, 40, is a leader of the militant Al Aksa Martyrs Brigades in this turbulent corner of the West Bank and has spent the past five years leading his ragtag band of gunmen in frequent clashes with the Israeli military. Roub's deeds include hauling a Palestinian suspected of collaborating with Israel and of molesting his own daughters into a town square, where the man was shot to death.

Now Roub is a candidate for the Palestinian Parliament and is virtually assured of winning a seat in elections Wednesday. He is wanted by Israel, and therefore does not appear at rallies, yet this seems only to have bolstered his reputation.

The Al Aksa Martyrs Brigades, which is made up of members of Abbas's Fatah party, emerged soon after the latest Palestinian uprising began in 2000.

Abbas has repeatedly called on Al Aksa to lay down its weapons, but the group's various factions largely have ignored his call. At Abbas's urging, a large number of militants have been incorporated into the Palestinian security forces in the past year, and the Islamic faction Hamas is taking part in national elections for the first time.

Indeed, Israelis often argue that Abbas, who came to power after the death of Yasser Arafat in 2004, is rewarding men he should be jailing.

Roub contends that the election offers him a better way to continue his struggle with Israel, which has consumed his whole life.

Roub said he has always been adamant about his beliefs, so much so that when he was 16 a high school friend began calling him Hitler, and it stuck. Roub said Hitler's slaughter of the Jews was wrong, yet he seems quite willing to keep the nickname.
I wonder, what beliefs would earn a man the nickname, "Hitler"? Could it be that he is anti-Israel, or anti-Jew?

When Roub was leaving after an interview, a group of Palestinian women spotted him and a buzz swept through the room. "It's Hitler; it's Hitler," they said, one after another. Roub could not resist speaking to them for 15 minutes.

Of course, if a western leader running in a western election had the nickname "Hitler", his career would be quickly ruined by the MSM. But when it is a middle eastern "Youth" locked in a battle against the Jews, the media goes into neo-Nazi tolerance mode and can't find a critical thing to say.

Comments:

I'm not sure which is worse, denying there's been a holocaust altogether, or naming yourself after Adolf Hitler.

not to mention that it sounds a bit daft when someone says ;

"i'll name myself after the man behind the holocaust, and err, there was no holocaust"

Pool staff bashed as youths riot


FOUR swimming pool staff have been beaten in an attack in Melbourne's north.

Stunned witnesses said about 30 youths had punched and kicked staff, including a young woman, on the grass at Oak Park Aquatic Centre about 4pm yesterday.
One witness, Alex, said families had recoiled in horror at the bashings.
"I've never seen anything like it," Alex said.
"I thought, 'Not another Cronulla'.
"There seemed to be dozens of people involved, with most wading into the staff and people trying to help them.
"They all appeared to be Middle-Eastern youths.
"It was very upsetting and scary. There were hysterical children everywhere."
Nicholas Burt, leisure manager at Moreland Council, which runs the pool, said the riot had occurred after a male lifeguard had tried to calm two teenagers arguing on the grass embankment.
Mr Burt said a third youth had butted in and when the lifeguard had escorted him to his belongings, after asking him to leave, a struggle had broken out.
"That's when up to 30 other patrons started to physically attack staff," Mr Burt said.
Three male lifeguards and one female security guard had been set upon by the group.
Mr Burt said that amid "blows to the back of the head and around the face", the staff had been driven into the pool's reception area.
He said the attack had continued until police arrived.
The staff, including one who suffered a smashed cheek, had been taken to hospital for treatment.
Asked how a minor dispute between teens escalated into a riot, Mr Burt said: "I'm not sure what could have sparked it.
"Until we have more information I wouldn't say it was necessarily a culturally or racially motivated attack, but I would not preclude it."
He said security camera footage would be reviewed as part of investigations.
The popular pool and its giant water-slide were shut immediately after the fracas.
Council chief Peter Brown said it was hoped the pool would reopen today.
Police said a youth, 17, had suffered a dislocated shoulder.
