Seventeen seconds of shocking footage has been released, showing the Queen of England at the age of seven performing a Nazi salute in a video filmed in the 1930s.

Prince of Wales Edward VIII expressed sympathetic views about pre-war Hitler. Perhaps that could explain why he is shown in this video encouraging the others to do the Nazi salute. Various explanations have been offered as this shocker circulated throughout the world.

It shows that a dark history exists for the royal family, causing many to call for opening the royal archives. Prince Charles has been favorable to the Jewish people, so perhaps we should judge the royals for who they are today.

Regardless, in today’s climate of increased anti-Semitism and delegitimization of Israel, Jews must indeed be very careful about who their friends really are.
