Old and busted: Consulate worker in Israel smuggling guns to palestinians.
New hotness: Embassy worker in Israel wearing a Nazi t-shirt.
They can sure pick ’em!
Austria’s foreign ministry has recalled an employee of its embassy in Israel after an Austrian weekly said he posted a picture of himself on social media wearing a T-shirt bearing the name of a Nazi tank division.
The Falter weekly published a screenshot of the attache’s Facebook page which shows him in a green shirt with the words “stand your ground” and “Frundsberg.” Frundsberg was a German Waffen SS armored division during World War Two.
The attache, Juergen-Michael Kleppich, is a member of the far-right Freedom Party, which is a junior partner in Austria’s coalition government. He was sent to Tel Aviv in December to help out at the embassy for a few months, Foreign Minister Karin Kneissl told radio station ORF on Wednesday.
Das, was wir vorhin fanden, ist noch krasser.
"Ehre usw" ist nicht schön, aber er trug in Israel auch ein Shirt mit Anspielung auf Landser und indirekt SS-Panzer

If his mission was truly to “help out at the embassy”, he was DOING IT ALL WRONG!
By the way, this is not Kleppich’s first Nazi social media post : he reportedly previously posted a photo of his grandfather in a Nazi uniform, complete with swastika.
I just wish he had tried to act like a Nazi while walking around Israel. I doubt he would be standing his ground – or even be left standing – then.
