Holocaust Day (Yom HaShoah in Hebrew) is today. I, for one, am sick and tired of the fetishism of dead Jews and the endless memorials to Holocaust victims, while the world rubs its hands in gleeful anticipation of another one.
I am sick of the false narrative. The role of the Mufti of Jerusalem was pivotal to the extermination of the Jews during World War II, and yet his role and that of jihad was scrubbed from the history books.
And here we are 60 years later, and Islam is back in full bloom, with Muslims sharpening their machetes for the beheading of the Jewish state — much the way Muhammad annihilated the Qurayzah tribe, beheading all the men of the last Jewish tribe of Arabia (after he exiled the other two). Today we have Ahmadinejad and every Islamic leader, imam, and cleric calling for the death of the Jews.
Now a new survey shows that 2009 was the worst year for anti-Semitism in at least two decades. Anti-Semitic attacks and events around the world more than doubled in 2009.
The European Jewish Congress (EJC) and The Stephen Roth Institute for the Study of Contemporary Anti-Semitism and Racism at Tel Aviv University say that part of this increase came from an “orchestrated and concerted attempt to delegitimize the Jewish People and Israel” in Western Europe.
There were “mass demonstrations and verbal and visual expressions against Israel and the Jews, with “the worst offenders” appearing in “Western Europe, particularly in the UK and France, followed by Canada.”
And many of these are Muslim immigrants who have come to those countries and brought their Islamic anti-Semitism with them. They’re following in the footsteps of the Mufti: in 1941, Haj Amin al-Husseini fled to Germany and met with Adolf Hitler, Heinrich Himmler, Joachim Von Ribbentrop and other Nazi leaders. He wanted to persuade them to extend the Nazis’ anti-Jewish pogrom to the Arab world.
He lived in the lap of luxury in Berlin from 1941 to 1945, making weekly broadcasts to the Muslim world from Berlin, inciting the ummah to exterminate the Jews and fight the allied forces.
Himmler recalled: “Muslims responded to the call of Muslim leaders and joined our side because of their hatred of our joint Jewish-English-Bolshevik enemies, and because of their belief and respect for, above all — Our Fuhrer.” And when the Jewish Rescue and Relief Committee in Budapest, tried to get the Germans authorities to allow 1,861 Hungarian Jews to emigrate to Palestine, Adolf Eichmann himself turned down the request: “I am a personal friend of the Grand Mufti. We have promised him that no European Jew would enter Palestine anymore.”
And Eichmann’s assistant Dieter Wisliczeny, said:
The Grand Mufti, who has been in Berlin since 1941, played a role in the decision of the German Government to exterminate the European Jews, the importance of which must not be disregarded. He had repeatedly suggested to the various authorities with whom he has been in contact, above all before Hitler, Ribbentrop and Himmler, the extermination of European Jewry. He considered this as a comfortable solution of the Palestine problem. In his messages broadcast from Berlin, he surpassed us in anti-Jewish attacks. He was one of Eichmann’s best friends and has constantly incited him to accelerate the extermination measures. I heard say that, accompanied by Eichmann, he has visited incognito the gas chamber at Auschwitz.
The Islamic world never apologized, never expressed remorse, never made restoration or reparation to the Jewish people and the victorious allied forces.
Their unspeakable war crimes go unpunished to this very day. Their vile Islamic texts inciting to Jew-hatred and violence remain revered and part of their vicious teachings.
And so today anti-Semitism rises again in Europe, courtesy the Muslims. Same jihad, different day.
Did six million die for nothing? Could it be possible they died in vain? And once again will the American Jewish Diaspora fail their brethren, in a horrible repeat of history?
I’m sick of it. And sick of the liberal American Jews who sell their souls and their children just so that they can get on with the barbarians.
With Barack Hussein Obama in the White House, things will go from bad to terrible in short order.
