The neo-Nazi Chrysi Avgi (Golden Dawn) political party in Greece, which is gaining popularity in the financial crisis, is establishing close contacts with neo-Nazis in Bavaria in Germany. Golden Dawn is led by Nikolaos Michaloliakos and has called for a revolution in Greece and an "ethnically pure" nation. Members of the party are accused of physically attacking immigrants and members of the country's left-wing. They also regularly stage intimidating marches, wearing military uniforms and singing Nazi chants, in immigrant neighborhoods of Athens. Spiegel

Japan blanketed by suffocating smog from China

As we recently reported, China's coal consumption has triped in the last decade, and continues to surge, with the result that heavy, dangerous smog is covering much of eastern China, not only creating respiratory disease, but even causing traffic accidents because of reduced visibility. Now air pollution over western Japan is reaching dangerous levels, as prevailing winds bring airborne particles from China. According to one person on the streets, of Tokyo, "It is very worrying. This is dangerous pollution, like poison, and we can't protect ourselves. It's scary." AFP

Israel considers a 10-mile buffer zone within Syria

Israel is considering creating a buffer zone inside Syria to protect Israel from Syrian militias. The buffer zone could reach 10 miles inside Syria, and would be modeled on the Lebanese security zone, which is jointly policed by the South Lebanese and Israeli armies. There is already a 20-foot steel wall being constructed along the border, replace a 40 year old fence. The buffer zone would serve as temporary protection until the wall is completed. UPI

Conspiracy theory alleges link between Jews and Muslim Brotherhood

A conspiracy theory circulating in the Arab world, presumably among those wishing to attack both Jews and the Muslim Brotherhood, is claiming that the Muslim Brotherhood is cooperating with the Jews in order to control Muslims and establish a "Greater Israel." According to an official of the Anti-Defamation League,

"It would seem that no allegation made against Jews and Israel is too absurd when it is used to discredit others. However bizarre and ludicrous, it is an increasingly popular conspiracy theory that the Muslim Brotherhood is a Jewish production to destroy Egyptians."
