This gives me extraordinary PAIN TO WRITE . . . But in the Past, SILENCE got SIX MILLION of my co-religionists slaughtered . . . And now, LEFTIST Jews are at it again, supporting a Candidate who would do us in as quickly as she can look at us.
AND I WILL NOT NOW . . . NOR EVER – SIT IN SILENCE!
I write this, because my FREEDOMS in Canada, and the FREEDOM of Expression in the United States of America, gives me the RIGHT to express myself, and the OBLIGATION to Fight to the Death to protect this RIGHT.
I AM NOT RELIGIOUSLY OBSERVANT . . . But I am 100% Jewish. I was partially educated in a Montreal Yeshiva (Rabbinical College), but was also educated in a Christian Protestant Environment, and while growing up, I spent a great deal of my time with French Speaking (Quebec) Catholics . . . so I have no reluctance to claim some level of authority on the subject of a variety of cultures.
WHILE GROWING UP IN MONTREAL . . . I was equally comfortable in the midst of Jews, Catholics and Protestants. Just as I was absolutely comfortable amongst French, English, Greeks, Italians, Asians, Blacks and others – BUT I NEVER FORGOT OR QUESTIONED WHO I WAS.
WHAT I QUESTIONED WITHOUT UNDERSTANDING . . . at least not until I got much older, was – NOT how Europe allowed and participated in the SLAUGHTER OF 6-MILLION JEWS, but rather – HOW DID 6-MILLION JEWS WILLINGLY WALK THROUGH THE GATES OF HELL?
My Canadian Born Father was a FIGHTER . . . My Canadian Born Mother was a FIGHTER. My Dad’s Brothers and Sisters were FIGHTERS too. They grew up on the TOUGH STREETS of Montreal, where you used your FISTS to stand-up to the bullies, or you cowered behind the people who would.
I GREW UP THE SAME WAY . . . But not on the Tough Streets of Montreal as my family had done, where being Jewish meant you were a target. I grew up protected in a safe environment, amongst civilized people, and in the midst of NON-JEWS who had little to no enmity for me. But, from the time I could comprehend, I understood that 6-MILLION JEWS were slaughtered in Europe only because they were Jews.
And from Time-To-Time, when the rare occasion arrived, when I had to FIGHT because of Anti-Semitism, I ALWAYS gave better than what I got.
And from my earliest memories, I saw the photos of Dead Jewish Men, Women and Children, including the Rotting Piles of Human Flesh, which the BUTCHERS didn’t have time to bury, and the Burnt Skeletons that were still in the Ovens after the Liberation of the Death Camps.
I WAS TOO YOUNG TO GRASP . . . the correlation between those who were SLAUGHTERED because they committed the CRIME of being Jewish, to the FACT, that had my family and I been in Europe at that time, we too would have been amongst the SLAUGHTERED Piles of Rotting Flesh, or a Skeleton in an Oven.
AFTER THOUSANDS OF YEARS – NOTHING HAS CHANGED . . .
For Jews everywhere – life is EPHEMERAL. It doesn’t matter how much Money we have or don’t have. How many Awards we’ve won or haven’t won. How much Property we own or don’t own, how much Political Influence we have or don’t have, how much Humanitarian Good Work we’ve Committed . . . and on and on. Life for the Jewish People is always just a matter of time . . .
Because . . . whatever we have or we don’t have – ALL OF IT CAN BE TAKEN AWAY, INCLUDING OUR LIVES, just as swiftly and as assuredly as it happened throughout Nazi Europe, not much more than just 70-Years Ago.
AND FOR SMUG JEWS WHO SAY IT CAN’T HAPPEN TO ME . . . It has happened repeatedly throughout our entire Jewish HISTORY, as recently as the Spanish and French Inquisitions, the Polish, Russian, and Ukrainian POGROMS . . . and even in Canada and the United States of America, where just up until the 1960’s, there were University Quotas on Jewish Enrollment, where the few Jews that were let in, needed much Higher Standards than anyone else.
There were Restrictions on where Jews could live and stay in Hotels. There were whole communities that restricted Property Owners from selling homes to Jews, and there were Clubs and Public Areas that banned Jews from stepping foot . . . and so on, and so on. AND THIS WAS EVEN AFTER THE HOLOCAUST.
AND BY THE WAY . . . As a Jew – I don’t need lectures from Black Lives Matter.
Because you might be a RICH Jew, or a University Professor, or a Lawyer, or an Accountant, or a Successful Business Owner, or a Banker, or a Ranking Business Manager, or a Wall Street Investor, or a Hollywood Mogul, or a Famous Entertainer, or a High Tech Guru, or a Major Property Owner/Developer – DOES NOT MAKE YOU SO SMART, so as not to see, nor does it make you IMPERVIOUS to the HELL of a repeat of the HOLOCAUST . . . because you’d be amongst the first to be rounded-up . . . just like they were in Nazi Europe.
There were 6-MILLION Jews, many of whom, who were really Smart and Talented, who in one way or another were all of the ABOVE . . . BUT – who were either Too Stupid, Too Greedy, Too Full of Themselves, and/or Too Cowardly to see it coming, and be ready to do whatever had to be done to STOP IT, FIGHT, OR RUN . . . so they did neither, and they and their loved-ones died.
In all of Europe . . . Just before the Holocaust, there were slightly less than 10-MILLION Jews. After the Holocaust, there were slightly less than 4-MILLION Jews.
And in all of Europe TODAY, there are about 1.4-MILLION Jews, with the majority, LITERALLY HALF – living in France and England, with the MOST in France. And even though the European Jewish Population throughout the rest of Europe is sparse, ANTI-SEMITISM IS RAMPANT.
AND MAKE NO MISTAKE ABOUT IT . . . the BDS Movement isn’t about Israel, it’s about UNABASHED HATRED FOR JEWS. And for all the LEFTIST Jews who participate in this OUTRAGE, they are helping to FUEL THE FLAMES of the next HOLOCAUST.
I was just reading a report, which focused on the American Jewish LEFT, and their absolute Commitment to the Democrat Party, which has embraced BDS and Black Lives Matter. And how some Jewish Neo-Conservatives have openly announced their support for Crooked Hillary, because Trump Stands in the way of their RINO Entitlements.
NOT ONLY ARE THEY BACKING THE WRONG HORSE . . . they’re backing the Horse of Armageddon.
But as I wrote earlier in this Editorial . . . HISTORY REPEATS ITSELF, and what I am witnessing is the answer to why more than 6-MILLION Jews didn’t FIGHT-BACK some 70-YEARS ago, because some 70-YEARS ago, they were probably behaving the same way as they’re behaving today.
The speech was at a Synagogue in an Upper Income Community in Montreal, where quite a few (elderly) Holocaust Survivors came after the War. Virtually all of them came to Montreal, just as Jews who survived the Holocaust arrived throughout North America, with literally nothing but the shirt on their back, and HORRID Memories of unthinkable cruelty and loss.
They came alone, to a strange land, where they had to start all over again from scratch, while dealing with the HORRORS of what they went through. Yet, they came, worked hard, raised families and prospered.
So . . . here I was speaking before hundreds of people, many Holocaust Survivors amongst the crowd, where I was speaking about Ethnocentric Nationalism in the Province of Quebec, and the Anti-Semitism that walked hand in hand with this type of Nationalism.
And even though there were many Holocaust Survivors in the audience, I made it clear, that CAPITULATION to any form of RACISM IS NOT AN OPTION, and trying to live on your knees is not living.
And during the Q&A portion of my speech . . . one of the Holocaust Survivors stood and asked this simple question:
“What would I have done, if I was in Europe during the Holocaust”?
If I was confronted by a KAPO (a willing Jewish helper of the Nazis), or a JUDENRAT (a Jewish conciliator who helped organize for the Nazis, in the idea of appeasing the Nazis for the Common Good), and a NAZI . . .
IF I HAD 1-GUN WITH 1-BULLET – THE NAZI WOULD LIVE TO SEE ANOTHER DAY.
NOT ONLY IS ANTI-SEMITISM ALIVE AND WELL IN EUROPE . . . it is alive, well, growing, and becoming MAINSTREAM throughout North America. It is Permeating like a Disease throughout our Universities, Unions, Social Groups like Black Lives Matter, the Green Parties and the Democrat Party.
AND WHEN IT HITS THE FAN . . . as it will, because it always does, and History never Lies – The first to feel its wrath, will be the JEWISH IDIOTS, who think for some reason they would be immune, because of their SPECIAL STATION IN LIFE, or because they didn’t identify with Mainstream Jews, or rather encompassed the Groups, which stood against the Jewish People in the Guise of Punishing Israel, for the way they imagine and have created the myth about how Israel is mistreating the Palestinians.
AS I SAY – THAT WHEN IT COMES TO CHOOSING SIDES . . . Anne and I have already made our CHOICE long ago – and have chosen to stand with REAL CONSERVATIVE JEWS & REAL LIKE MINDED CONSERVATIVE CHRISTIANS, and to HELL with everyone else who thinks that APPEASEMENT and the LEFT are the way to go.
And anyone who thinks that ALL JEWS are LEFTISTS, and all Jews support the Democrats, they are as wrong as are the people who think that all Jews succumbed to the Nazis during the Holocaust, since many didn’t. Many saw the writing on the wall and got out when they could, while just as many fought from the Beginning to the End.
Who will not go gentle into that good night.
