years Israelis and Zionists have
been pumping 'Shoah' into our veins by
using every possible propaganda outlet: media, education,
Seemingly they have been very successful : We are all properly ' Holocausted '. We accept the suffering of the Jewish people -- and we have even managed to draw a universal message from it all.
We do accept that a real Shoah
is taking place in front of our eyes in
In preparation for Holocaust Memorial Day (1), London Zionist mouthpiece The Jewish Chronicle is very disturbed by a UK-based pro Palestinian web site named shoah.org.uk. The site is obviously dedicated to the Palestinian Holocaust.
The Jewish paper insists that the
Shoah -- like
Karen Pollock, chief executive of the Holocaust Educational Trust told the Jewish paper, "Using the word 'Shoah' in this context is done with the sole intention of causing offence to Holocaust survivors, their families and the wider Jewish community and shows the greatest possible disrespect to the tragedy of the Holocaust."
I would fiercely argue that Pollock is wrong. Using the word 'Shoah' in this very context is there to awaken the world, the Jews, and holocaust victims in particular, to the fact that the biggest current perpetrator of crimes against humanity -- is actually the Jewish state.
Mark Gardner, of the Community
Security Trust, said: "This website is yet another sickening example of
how the Holocaust is perverted by anti-Zionists in order to attack
Mark Gardner is almost correct; anti
Zionists do indeed use the Shoah as
a means of mirroring. And it is now an accepted fact that the
Palestinians are the last victims of Hitler. It is also becoming accepted that
the Israelis are the Nazis of our time. And tragically enough, the crimes in
These facts are disturbing and demand the immediate attention of world Jewry.
Jon Benjamin, chief executive of the Board of Deputies ( another morbid institute that claims to represent British Jews ) told the Jewish Chronicle that "even without delving into what is clearly a one-sided and skewed narrative, by virtue of its title, this website is extremely provocative and any trivialisation of the Holocaust in which over six million Jewish men, women, and children were systematically murdered is completely abhorrent."
Benjamin is probably too lame to grasp that what we see here is the total opposite -- We are actually witnessing an acceptance of an astute universalising of the holocaust as carrying a humanist message for all of us. We can see a deeper understanding of the true moral meaning of that historical event.
Surely we need to stand up against all forms of
ethno-centric homicidal policies. And it seems clear that
However, a few questions are still left open -- Why exactly do the aforementioned Jews from the Jewish Chronicle and the Board of Deputies want to maintain the notion and reality of historical suffering as being exclusively Jewish property? Why don’t they want anyone else to use the word 'Shoah'? Why do they demand a total control over the usage of words and applications of meanings ?
Can you imagine a Ukrainian protesting against the word
'famine' being applied to the situation in
I really wonder why so many Jews insist on grounding their identity politics on suffering and being hated by others?
For clearly, one must admit that being loathed is not exactly something to brag about.
I am bewildered.
(1) It is interesting to read the definition of the Holocaust Memorial Day on the official HMD's site:
"HMD is about remembering the victims and those
whose lives have been changed beyond recognition of the Holocaust, Nazi
persecution and subsequent genocides in
