    Neo-Nazis: We'll be back

    A neo-Nazi march through the city has been postponed now that the group’s state leader has been suspended because of an outstanding warrant for his arrest.

    The controversial march was scheduled for Friday in the city of Cincinnati.

    But plans were canceled over the weekend after the American National Socialist Workers Party said it learned that Justin Boyer is a wanted man in the state of Washington, said national leader Bill White. The warrant for Boyer’s arrest was issued more than a year ago on allegations of domestic assault.

    White said he learned that police here intended to arrest Boyer at the march.

    Boyer could not be reached for comment Sunday.

    “The city was planning to use this to embarrass us,” White said in a telephone interview on Sunday.

    White said the march would go on, but just not on Friday, and without Boyer.

    Boyer had been a Seattle-area leader of the large neo-Nazi group, the National Socialist Movement, prior to moving back to Ohio less than a year ago. Here, he became the Ohio leader of the American National Socialist Workers Party, a splinter neo-Nazi group now headed by White.

    According to the new group’s Web site, White, Boyer and 19 other state and unit leaders of the National Socialist Movement left the group in mid-July because of scandal involving another leader. White said that leader had a checkered past, patronized convicted sex offenders and had been in a 15-year relationship with a man in a bi-racial marriage.

    “We try and hold ourselves to a different standard of behavior,” White said.

    When asked about the accusations of domestic violence against Boyer, his now-suspended Ohio leader, White said that he did not know the details and wanted to see how it played out in the court system before commenting on the behavior. White said he conducted criminal background checks on its leaders and the warrant for Boyer never surfaced.

    Boyer lives north of Dayton, White said. He is now replaced by Kenny Fields, White said.

    White did not know when the March in Cincinnati would take place. He said that unlike in early April, when the group applied for and was granted a city permit to march in Over-the-Rhine more than two weeks ahead of the planned event, his group will no longer give the city a heads up by asking for a permit.

    Relations between the group and the city have been tenuous since Boyer received the permit in early April. The April 20 march was to coincide with the 118th anniversary of the birth of Adolph Hitler. On April 6, the day the initial report of the march appeared in The Cincinnati Enquirer, City Manager Milton Dohoney revoked the neo-Nazi’s group’s permit and set off a chain-reaction of threats of lawsuits by the group. The group was told it could march, but not in the Over-the-Rhine, which is a predominately black neighborhood.

    White said his group will march where it likes. The same group appeared last October in a Toledo neighborhood and sparked rioting. White said he feared rioting in Cincinnati.

    “I don’t really care what their reasons are for not coming. I’m just glad they are not coming,” said Cincinnati City Councilwoman Laketa Cole, who led the recent charge to create a city ordinance that would have prohibited marches and parades by groups that use “fighting words.” The version that was recently enacted also requires groups to pay for police officers, firefighters and other city services required for its events.

    White vowed on Sunday the group did not intend to stay away from Cincinnati for long.

    “We do not have a specified date except for soon - which could mean Saturday and it could mean June,” White said of a replacement march.

        Neo-Nazi ring busted in Israel, police say

        In a case that would seem unthinkable in the Jewish state, police said Sunday they have cracked a cell of young Israeli neo-Nazis accused in a string of attacks on foreign workers, religious Jews, drug addicts and gays.
        Eight immigrants from the former Soviet Union have been arrested in recent days in connection with at least 15 attacks, and a ninth fled the country, police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said, in the first such known cell to be discovered in Israel.

        All the suspects are in their late teens or early 20s and have Israeli citizenship, Rosenfeld said.

        "The level of violence was outrageous," Maj. Revital Almog, who investigated the case, told Israel's Army Radio.

        A court decided Sunday to keep the young men in custody. They covered their faces with their shirts during the hearing, revealing their tattooed arms, and did not comment.

        News of the arrests came as a shock in Israel, which was founded nearly 60 years ago as a refuge for Jews in the wake of the Nazi Holocaust and remains a most sensitive subject. Any forms of anti-Semitism around the world outrage Israelis, and the discovery of such violence in the country's midst made the front pages of newspapers and dominated talk on morning radio shows.

        The gang documented its activities on film and in photographs. Israeli TV stations showed grainy footage of people lying helpless on floors while several people kicked them, and of a man getting hit from behind on the head with an empty bottle.

        Police found knives, spiked balls, explosives and other weapons in the suspects' possession, Rosenfeld said. One photo that was seized showed one suspect holding an M16 rifle in one hand and in the other, a sign reading "Heil Hitler," he added.

        Police discovered the skinhead ring after investigating the desecration of two synagogues that were sprayed with swastikas in the central Israeli city of Petah Tikva more than a year ago, Rosenfeld said.

        Police computer experts have determined they maintained contacts with neo-Nazi groups abroad, and materials seized include a German-language video about neo-Nazis in the U.S.

        The group planned its attacks, and its targets were foreign workers from Asia, drug addicts, homosexuals, punks and Jews who wore skullcaps. In one case they discussed planning a murder, Rosenfeld said, without providing details.

        Some of the victims filed official complaints with police, and other victims were identified after police viewed the films and photos.

        In the past, there have been only isolated cases of neo-Nazi activity in Israel. "This is the first time that we've ... arrested such a large number of individuals who are part of an organized neo-Nazi group," Rosenfeld said.

        Under Israeli law, a person can claim citizenship if a parent or grandparent has Jewish roots. Authorities say that formulation allowed many Soviets with questionable ties to Judaism to immigrate here after the Soviet Union disintegrated. About 1 million Soviets moved here in the late 1980s and early 1990s.

        Rosenfeld said all the suspects had "parents or grandparents who were Jewish in one way or another."

        Israel doesn't specifically have a hate crimes law, and suspects in past cases have been tried as Holocaust deniers, he said.

        The Anti-Defamation League, a U.S.-based group that fights anti-Semitism, condemned the neo-Nazi cell, but urged Israelis not to stigmatize the entire Russian immigrant community based on the acts of what appeared to be a marginal group.

        "The suspicion that immigrants to Israel could have been acting in praise of Nazis and Hitler is an anathema to the Jewish state and is to be repelled," the statement read. "The tragic irony in this is that they would have been chosen for annihilation by the Nazis they strive to emulate."

        Amos Herman, an official with the semiofficial Jewish Agency, which works on behalf of the government to encourage immigration to Israel, said the phenomenon was not representative of the Russian immigration.

        He called the gang a group of frustrated, disgruntled youths trying to strike at the nation's most sensitive core.

        "We thought that it would never happen here, but it has and we have to deal with it," he said.
