ACTIVISM. Activists from the Danish branch of the Nordic Resistance Movement conducted an information campaign in several towns and cities over Easter to make people aware of the Jews’ foreign customs.
The history of Easter (påske in Danish) goes back a long way. The original Easter has its roots in the celebration of the vernal equinox and the beginning of spring, which has been celebrated for many, many years. The vernal equinox takes place on 20, 21 or 22 March, but the “official” date for the spring equinox is 21 March. The equinox marks the end of winter and the arrival of spring. Biologically and culturally, it represents the end of the barren season (especially in the Nordic climate), the rebirth of life, fertility and reproduction. One of the earliest references to this feast we have comes from Babylon, 2400 B.C.E. In the city of Ur, the moon and the vernal equinox were celebrated in March and April.
It is believed that the Jews adopted Passover from the Babylonian celebration of the vernal equinox when many Jews were held captive in the Babylonian kingdom. For the Babylonians, the solstices and equinoxes served as important events in the year.
The word påske, which we use for this festival in the Nordic countries, comes from the Hebrew word pesach. Pesach literally means “pass by” or “pass over” and refers to the time when the Jews in Egypt rebelled and vengefully killed the firstborn children of their host nation.
Via economic speculation, cunning and unscrupulousness, the Jews “bought” themselves into the land of Egypt and lived there in wealth and comfort like parasites. When the ruling Pharaoh died and a new Pharaoh came to power, he saw how the Jews indulged in the luxury of Egypt without working, he saw how the Jews’ power had grown, and he saw that these Jews were internationally minded and “friends” with Egypt’s enemies, and thus a great danger. The Pharaoh then put the Jews to work for the nation and for their daily bread, like everyone else, and for this the Jews wanted revenge. Possibly the first Bolshevik uprising was brewing, and the Jews now blamed their hard life on the landowners, industrialists and bourgeois – and, as is the case in Jewish/Bolshevik revolutions, the Jews persuaded the lower strata of society, the mob, to revolt against their own flesh and blood in a struggle for “The Chosen People”, who had created their problems in the first place. (Workers of the world, unite!)
This bloody revolt against the pillars of society has since been turned into the story of Yahweh’s liberation of the Jews from slavery in the Jews’ own fanciful tale, wherein God commanded that all the firstborn children in Egypt be killed. If a door was painted with lamb’s blood, Yahweh’s henchmen would simply “pass over” it and spare the Jewish children. This is the origin of what constitutes the Jewish Passover, and from which the Christian Passover got its name in the Nordic countries.
The Jewish festival of Pesach in modern times – which this year is celebrated from Saturday, 27 March to Sunday, 4 April – involves animal cruelty in the form of the bloody ritual slaughter of a lamb on Pesach night, as well as baking the traditional matzah-bread, which was historically made with human blood.
A little over a month ago, the Jews observed another bloodbath-related holiday – Purim, when they celebrate the massacre of 75,000 “anti-Semites”.
In September, the Jews celebrated Yom Kippur, a holiday when, among other things, a live hen is swung over the head in order to proactively ask for forgiveness for all the lies and deception the Jews will commit until the next Yom Kippur.
