(July 26, 2019,/ JNS) Djamel Boumaaz, a legitimate inside the southern French city of Montpellier, celebrated his birthday with a swastika-adorned cake. In a Facebook publication discussing his fortieth birthday, he wrote, “I spent a beautiful day with my circle of relatives, tune, meals inside the domestic of my SS buddy, then my birthday cake arrived, a gift from my SS pal.” Boumaaz, who’s Muslim, formerly a member of the long way-proper National Front
Party, has a record of neo-Nazi activism. He became 2d at the party’s listing for the neighborhood 2014 elections in Montpelier. Two years later, Boumaaz’s Twitter account was investigated, as it marked that it had become “forbidden to puppies and Jews” and protected tweets denying and mocking the Holocaust. He has previously been fined for acting the quenelle gesture—an inverted Nazi salute popularized via French political activist and comic Dieudonné M’bala M’bala, acknowledged for his anti-Semitic views—at a session of the Montpellier city council, consistent with the Simon Wiesenthal Center.
