The One Lesson of the Holocaust

Daniel Greenfield brilliantly hits it out of the park again in this blistering calling out of the cowardice of Leftist Jews for not more forcefully opposing Obama’s delusional Iran Nuclear Deal and for so cynically supporting the predictably catastrophic “Two State Solution” for the Arab/Israeli conflict, despite the Arabs stating clearly that a Palestinian State would be merely the first phase in their determined quest to rid the Middle East of Israel & its Jews once & for all.

Daniel Greenfield’s article: The One Lesson of the Holocaust

Yom HaShoah (Holocaust Remembrance Day)  comes and goes. A day for looking back at what has happened and a day for looking away from what will happen.

Millions of dollars have been spent building memorials to the victims of the Holocaust, even as Iran is spending its millions on building another kind of memorial to the Holocaust, in the form of nuclear technology that will be used to finish that piece of history that the Islamic terror state claims never took place.

Millions more are spent, by some of the same groups that claim an interest in Holocaust education, on bringing Muslim migrants to America and Europe to carry out the promise of an Islamic apocalypse in which, as the Hadith states, “The last hour would not come unless the Muslims will fight against the Jews and the Muslims would kill them until the Jews would hide themselves behind a stone or a tree and a stone or a tree would say: Muslim, or the servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me; come and kill him.” That is what the Islamic Holocaust looks like. And it’s underway.

A Jew is murdered in France. Another in Jerusalem. And another and another.

The Final Solution, with its immediate extermination of the Jews, has been replaced by the Two State Solution, an intermediate process in which the land on which Jews can live in security is partitioned into smaller and smaller pieces.

The Lebensraum (German, esp. Nazis – “living space” – the additional territory that a group, state, or nation believes is needed for its natural development) of Islam demands ever more breathing room. And fewer breathing Jews. Israel is carved up into smaller indefensible ghettos. The number of places where the world decides that Jews can be allowed to live, shrink. The rest become “settlers” who must be evicted for the sake of peace. Even if the place they’re “settling” is Jerusalem. The oldest Jewish city on earth.

And this Two State Solution, this intermediate process, has the almost universal backing of the major Jewish organizations who are so very deeply concerned about the Holocaust. It has the backing of the diplomats and politicians who put out canned statements urging that we learn the lessons of the Holocaust. The only lesson they have learned though is that another Holocaust needs better marketing.

It is comparatively easy to build a memorial. You hire the architect, raise the money, buy the land and then cut the ribbon. It is a much harder thing to do something about the need for those memorials in the first place. That is what learning the lessons of the Holocaust is about.

It is easier to build another memorial than to look into your heart and ask why two generations later, the majority of the American Jewish community was still too cowardly to stand up to a liberal icon in the White House… when the lives of millions of Jews were on the line.

From FDR to Obama, American Jewish leaders had two opportunities to stand up to a liberal icon and save Jewish lives. No amount of memorials can disguise the fact that they learned nothing.
The reassurances from American Jewish leaders that Obama meant well, that he will not sell out Israel and that he cares sounded familiar. The American Jewish leaders of the 30’s and 40’s echoed the same sentiments. Even as the St. Louis was turned back and its passengers were sent to the gas chambers, even as every effort made to aid or save Jews from the Holocaust was frustrated and shut down with the active complicity of the liberal American Jewish leadership who were loyal to FDR.

The same people who let millions die went on to light candles and issue their hypocritical sanctimonious statements of mourning for the dead.  More candles have been lit. More memorials have been built. But the lessons of the Holocaust continue to go unlearned.

Regardless of which administration is in office, the Two State Solution and any support for the Islamic terrorists seeking to exterminate the Jews, as they have already exterminated many of the Christians in the region, must be fought. When we fail to do this, then whatever our politics are, we abandon our obligations to the dead and to the living.

The most important lesson of the Holocaust is that the details of how it happened don’t really matter. Had Hitler not come to power, had Germany not turned National Socialist, the Holocaust would have happened anyway. Stalin had one planned too before his death. Had it not been Hitler or Stalin, it would have been someone else. It still might be.

The Holocaust did not happen because of intolerance or fascism, as most liberals would like you to believe. It happened for the same overriding reason that any person or group of people is murdered. Because the Jews lacked the means of defending themselves against it.

There have been two Jewish responses to the Holocaust, on the one hand promoting tolerance and assimilation and on the other hand the State of Israel. Tolerance has done nothing to prevent the hatred and murder of Jews. In many cases it has actually served to promote it.

Every Muslim attack in Europe and America can be laid at the door of tolerance. When a Jewish woman is thrown out of a window in Paris or a Rabbi is beaten in Brussels, the true perpetrator is “tolerance”.

The State of Israel stands as the only meaningful response to the Holocaust. Rather than building stone memorials and going back to business as usual, the State of Israel is not only a living future for the Jewish people, it is a response to the fundamental lesson of the Holocaust. The Holocaust happened because it could happen to a people who couldn’t defend themselves. The State of Israel with its armies and borders was the best physical defense against it happening again.

Today the two responses to the Holocaust are battling out to the death, Tolerance and Assimilation vs the State of Israel. And the State of Israel is getting the worst of it. The teachers of tolerance blame Israel for the failure of their own ideology, manifest in the rising hatred of Jews around the world. If Israel wouldn’t exist, somehow Jews wouldn’t be hated, their thesis goes. As if Anti-semitism had been discovered lying around in a dustbin sometime after 1948.

But it is tolerance meanwhile that is killing Israel. The left has pushed Israel to the wall, because it represents the inversion of their ideology, it represents the reality that the best hope of the persecuted is not in multiculturalism or in tolerance classes, but in taking responsibility for their own safety and survival.

COULD A JEWISH STATE HAVE STOPPED THE HOLOCAUST?

We Jews are a convenient scapegoat for the failures of this world. How Inconvenient for our enemies that we now defend ourselves against those who hate us! What if Israel had been established in the 1930's?

We Jews are a convenient scapegoat for the failures of this world. How Inconvenient for our enemies that we now defend ourselves against those who hate us! What if Israel had been established in the 1930’s?

Ronn Torossian is CEO of a top 20 US PR Agency, and author of “For Immediate Release.” His article in The Algemeiner reviewed a new novel on this question and the Editor of The Algemeiner tweeted for readers to state their opinions.

Here’s my comment, currently awaiting moderation:

“Had Israel existed in the 1930’s, the extent of the danger facing European Jewry would have been accurately assessed. After all, Hitler’s ideas were exhaustively communicated in Mein Kampf and in much of his rhetoric prior to him becoming Chancellor. Whilst still contained to Germany, an Israeli State would have used its intelligence capabilities to investigate the National Socialist party and infiltrate it. Information would have flowed out of Germany in a torrent & the Israeli Government would have formulated strategies to either save Europe’s Jews by joint diplomatic efforts involving other nations that were able to ignore the representations of Jewish organisations but could not have ignored an Israeli Prime Minister and Cabinet. Had Israel existed then, its strategic importance would have made it a natural ally of the U.S. and Britain, as they would have established forward operating bases in Israel that would have assisted greatly in the Nth Africa & Middle East campaigns. One could go on and on, because the apparatus of the State delivers power and credibility. Jews would have been far more likely to leave a Europe about to explode and settle in Israel, a nation that would have rapidly built its Armed Forces to dissuade the Nazis from attacking. If Israel had existed, Hitler would likely have stuck with his original plan, to expel Europe’s Jews to create his Jew Free Europe. It was the refusal of any other nation to take Europe’s Jewish refugees in any realistic numbers that delivered success to those like Himmler, Eichman & Haj Amin Al Husseini, who virtually badgered Hitler on a daily basis that expulsion could not “solve” the Jewish problem and that extermination was the only action that would succeed in them achieving their diabolical goals. Finally, if Israel had existed, numerous Jewish scientists would have flocked there and Germany would have likely been unable to develop the frighteningly dangerous weapons that allowed it to rain rockets on London, where 45,000 people were killed in the Blitz. Faced with a vicious World War, Israeli scientists would have worked night and day to develop weapons to stop the Nazis march southward………possibly including beating the U.S. in developing a nuclear weapon. A lot to think about indeed!!!”

TERRIBLE DISCOVERY IN POLAND BRINGS GRIEF FLOODING BACK – ANNOUNCED 17TH SEPTEMBER 2014

Posted in PERSONAL with tags , , , , on September 20, 2014 by drjgelb

Archaeologists in eastern Poland claim they have discovered new evidence related to the Nazi regime’s evil and murderous history.

Hidden underneath the ground at a former Nazi concentration camp on the outskirts of the village of Sobibor, archaeologists reputedly found gas chambers that were intentionally hidden by Nazis after an uprising in 1943. Officials estimate roughly 250,000 Jews were killed in the gas chambers.

Following an uprising at the camp on Oct. 14, 1943, German forces reportedly demolished the gas chambers. The site of the mass killing of Jews was later covered with anasphalt road.

Yoram Haimi, one of the archaeologists on the project, told Reuters that they “were amazed at the size of the building and the well-preserved condition of the chamber walls.” Officials are now working to establish just how large the gas chambers were, which will give them a better idea of how many people were murdered at the camp.

Haimi also has a personal connection to the grisly discovery. Two of his uncles were reportedly captured by Germans and later killed at the Sobibor death camp.

The Yad Vashem International Institute for Holocaust Researchhas more information on the extermination camp:

The Sobibór Extermination Camp was located near the village and railway station of Sobibór, in the eastern part of the Lublin district in Poland, not far from the Chełm-Włodawa railway line. The camp was established along with the extermination camps of Treblinka and Bełżec as part of Aktion Reinhard. Built in March 1942, it was basically composed of three parts, each individually fenced in: the administration area, the reception area, and the extermination area. In addition, there was a section of forest in the northern part of the camp where the Nazis had begun to construct a bunker. During the period of the camp’s operation, April 1942 – October 1943, about 250,000 Jews were murdered there. In the wake of the camp uprising that occurred on 14 October 1943, the Germans decided to dismantle the camp. Apart from certain structures that have been dismantled since the war and the few buildings in connection to the camp that are still standing, the site has remained bare lacking any real trace of the former extermination camp.

Another archeologist involved in unearthing the gas chambers, identified as Wojciech Mazurek, offered a bone-chilling description of the concentration camp.

“The extermination of people took place there; murder by smoke from an engine that killed everyone within 15 minutes in these gas chambers, in torment, shouting,” he told Reuters Television. “It is said that … the Nazis even bred geese in order to drown out these shouts so that prisoners could not have heard these shouts, these torments.”

Very few prisoners ever made it out of Sobibor alive. Due to this tragic fact, and because German forces destroyed the camp, there is still much unknown about the infamous site.

Of the roughly 300 prisoners escaped during the 1943 uprising, most were captured and killed. Only 50 Sobibor prisoners came out alive at the end of World War II, according to Reuters.

PETITION TO REFER THE ISLAMIC STATE’S LEADERSHIP TO THE ICC

Posted in MIDDLE-EAST POLITICS with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 17, 2014 by drjgelb

I signed an online petition today that has collected tens of thousands of signatures calling for international partners to refer the Islamic State to the International Criminal Court for crimes against humanity. A few hours after I signed the petition, this automated reply from the British Foreign Secretary arrived:

“Thank you for your email.

The Foreign Secretary is receiving a large volume of emails on Iraq and abuses being carried out by actions by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL). He regrets that he is unable to reply personally to each one.

The Foreign Secretary shares the concerns of many in the UK about the suffering of civilians in Iraq and condemns in the strongest possible terms the atrocities that are being committed by ISIL. They are targeting people of all religions and ethnicity, different ages, male and female, including the most vulnerable.

We now have confirmed reports that ISIL continues to kidnap large numbers of people, mostly women, and credible information that women and children are being held by ISIL in a number of locations. We have confirmed reports that some women have been executed, possibly because they refused to change their religion, while others have been sold or allocated as slaves. We are also receiving distressing reports from displaced persons fleeing ISIL of family separation and their heinous crimes.

We utterly condemn the acts of horrific violence and slavery reportedly being carried out by ISIL in areas under its control. These are serious breaches of the Geneva Conventions and all parties to the conflict must do everything in their power to prevent them and to protect the civilian population.

The Government is working closely with the United Nations, the Iraqi authorities and international partners to ease the humanitarian situation in Iraq, including providing humanitarian support assistance to displaced people, many of whom have been the victims of ISIL’s abuses and persecution.

Internationally, the UK chaired an emergency meeting of the United Nations Security Council on 7 August to discuss ISIL’s attacks and the humanitarian situation. The UK Government has driven UN Security Council Resolution 2170, which was unanimously adopted at the UN Security Council on 15 August. This builds on our strong contribution to the humanitarian response to the current crisis in Iraq by providing measures to choke ISIL’s recruitment and financing and sanctioning ISIL individuals.

Any decision to refer to the International Criminal Court must be made on the basis of what will be the most effective means to bring the perpetrators of these atrocities to account. We will look at every available option to ensure accountability and to work with our international partners on what can be done to both assist the victims and to bring those responsible to justice.

If you have contacted the FCO as a member of the public, thank you for your email. Your email will be forwarded to the relevant part of the FCO for reply.”

ALL EUROPEAN LIFE DIED IN AUSCHWITZ By: Sebastian Vilar Rodrigez

I walked down the street in Barcelona , and suddenly discovered a terrible truth – Europe died in Auschwitz … We killed six million Jews and replace them with 20 million Muslims. In Auschwitz we burned a culture, thought, creativity, talent. We destroyed the chosen people, truly chosen, because they produced great and wonderful people who changed the world. The contribution of this people is felt in all areas of life: science, art, international trade, and above all,as the conscience of the world. These are the people we burned. And under the pretense of tolerance, and because we wanted to prove to ourselves that we were cured of the disease of racism, we opened our gates to 20 million Muslims, who brought us stupidity and ignorance, religious extremism and lack of tolerance, crime and poverty, due to an unwillingness to work and support their families with pride.

They have blown up our trains and turned our beautiful Spanish cities into the third world, drowning in filth and crime. Shut up in the apartments they receive free from the government, they plan the murder and destruction of their naive hosts. And thus, in our misery, we have exchanged culture for fanatical hatred, creative skill for destructive skill, intelligence for backwardness and superstition.

We have exchanged the pursuit of peace of the Jews of Europe and their talent for a better future for their children, their determined clinging to life because life is holy, for those who pursue death, for people consumed by the desire for death for themselves and others, for our children and theirs.

What a terrible mistake was made by miserable Europe!!!!

The Jews are NOT promoting brain washing children in military training camps, teaching them how to blow themselves up and cause maximum deaths of Jews and other non Muslims. The Jews don’t hijack planes, nor kill athletes at the Olympics, or blow themselves up in German restaurants. There is NOT one single Jew who has destroyed a church. There is NOT a single Jew who protests by killing people. The Jews don’t traffic slaves, nor have leaders calling for Jihad and death to all the Infidels.

Perhaps the world’s Muslims should consider investing more in standard education and less in blaming the Jews for all their problems. Muslims must ask ‘what can they do for humankind’ before they demand that humankind respects them.

Regardless of your feelings about the crisis between Israel and the Palestinians and Arab neighbors, even if you believe there is more culpability on Israel’s part, the following two sentences really say it all:

“If the Arabs put down their weapons today, there would be no more violence. If the Jews put down their weapons today, there would be no more Israel .” Benjamin Netanyahu

General Eisenhower warned us it is a matter of history that when the Supreme Commander of the Allied Forces, General Dwight Eisenhower, found the victims of the death camps he ordered all possible photographs to be taken, and for the German people from surrounding villages to be ushered through the camps and even made to bury the dead.

He did this because, as he stated in 1945:

“Get it all on record now – get the films – get the witnesses, because somewhere down the road of history someone will get up and say that this never happened.” Recently, the UK debated whether to remove The Holocaust from its school curriculum because it ‘offends’ the Muslim population which claims it never occurred. It is not removed as yet. However, this is a frightening portent of the fear that is gripping the world and how easily each country is giving into it.

It is now more than 60 years after the Second World War in Europe ended. This article is dedicated to the memory of the, 6 million Jews, 20 million Russians, 10 million Christians, and 1,900 Catholic priests who were ‘murdered, raped, burned, starved, beaten, experimented on and humiliated’ while the German people looked the other way. Now, more than ever, with Iran , among others, claiming the Holocaust to be ‘a myth,’ it is imperative to make sure the world never forgets. How many years will it be before the attack on the World Trade Center ‘NEVER HAPPENED’ because it offends some Muslim in the United States?
