WORDS REALLY DO MATTER . . . So, when I read or hear about atrocities Describing a Genocide as a HOLOCAUST, not only is this a Grossly INCORRECT use of the word, but it is an INSULT To The Memory Of The 6-MILLION Jewish Men, Women & Children, who were Totally Dispossessed, Disenfranchised, Humiliated, Intimidated, Beaten, Raped, Tortured and MASS MURDERED FOR THE SINGLE CRIME OF BEING JEWISH.
And to make it even MORE EGREGIOUS . . . The Jews couldn’t leave Europe and the Nazis, no matter how much they wanted to, because OUR FATE was to be ERADICATED from the Gene Pool of Humanity.
SO I DON’T WANT TO HEAR . . . from the LEFT, or anyone else, and certainly NOT from a Moslem Arab, on how the Syrian People are being MURDERED in a HOLOCAUST. Because, unless they have somehow Miraculously become Jews in this Horrible Time for them, they can easily and honestly compare their Plight to a Genocide, Slaughter, Massacre or anything else . . . BUT NOT THE HOLOCAUST.
BUT FOR MOSLEM/ARABS . . . Who HATE Jews, especially Israeli Jews, and CELEBRATE every time Jews are Slaughtered, same as they DANCED IN THE STREETS at the NEWS of the MURDERS & DESTRUCTION at the TWIN TOWERS & THE PENTAGON ON 9/11, to refer to what their OWN KIND are doing to them in Aleppo and elsewhere in the Arab/Moslem World as their HOLOCAUST . . . IS BEYOND THE PALE.
IN MODERN TIME ALONE . . . there have been so many Genocides and Slaughters, that amongst them, they include the Armenians at the hands of the Turks, The Rwandans, the Cambodians . . . and to many – the plight of North American Indians – BUT ONLY ONE GENOCIDE STANDS OUT FOR ITS UNIQUENESS.
I am not suggesting that the Genocides suffered throughout History are irrelevant, BUT I AM STATING, that it’s far too easy to DIMINISH ONE to support the others.
AND IF THE HOLOCAUST IS EVER REDUCED to the point, where it is measured as JUST ANOTHER GENOCIDE in The History of Mankind, the full Meaning of the HOLOCAUST, and the CULPABILITY of EVERYONE Responsible, from those who did the actual KILLING, to those who supplied the material and services, to those who knew and did nothing – would all become Meaningless . . . AND THAT CANNOT BE ALLOWED TO HAPPEN!
It is indeed Heart Rending to see the Women and Children of Syria, and their whole lives being Laid to Waste. But it is NO LESS HEART RENDING TO ME, to see, read and hear the Syrian Men, Women, and Children . . . amongst a VAST Number of other Arabs when POLLED . . . who freely admit that they think Israel should be WIPED OFF THE MAP, that the Jews in Israel should be PUSHED INTO THE SEA, that TERRORISM Against Jews is Acceptable, and that Jews Worldwide are EVIL.
How are Americans supposed to respond to People Who Hate Americans for Being Americans? And how much sympathy should we all have for a People who are being MURDERED by their own People . . . WHO, if they had a chance, would do it to their enemies, as their enemies are doing it to them?
How am I supposed to feel and react . . . when I read what is being taught to Palestinian School Children about HATING Jews, IDOLIZING Murderers (Terrorists) of Jews, and going to a kind of “Scout Camp” to learn how to Train Children to want to Kill Jews?
AND IT’S NOT JUST PALESTINIAN CHILDREN . . . who are raised and taught to HATE Jews. And it’s not just Arabs and Moslems who are taught to HATE Jews, since JEW-HATRED has been a Global Reality for more than 2000-Years.
And there were very few if any Arabs and Moslems in numbers of consequence throughout Europe during the time of the HOLOCAUST.
So . . . now that MILLIONS of Moslem/Arab JEW-HATERS are Murdering and Massacring Hundreds of Thousands of other Moslem/Arab JEW-HATERS . . . Please Tell Me How I’m Supposed to Feel? And what is my Response supposed to be?
BUT WHAT I REALLY DO KNOW . . . Without Question – is that the Arab-On-Arab Genocide has NOTHING whatsoever to do with the TRUE Meaning and Reality of the HOLOCAUST.
IN 1948 . . . The Arab and Moslem Armies from Asia, Africa and the Middle East converged on the Infant Reborn-Jewish State of Israel, resettled by People who had just 3-Years Earlier SURVIVED THE REAL HOLOCAUST.
And what did the World Do to either Save or Help the Jews, when most of the World were all but certain that the Jews would be ANNIHILATED . . . ? Nothing, Nada, Gornisht.
AND THEN IN 1973 . . . As the Combined Arab Armies and their Accomplices SNEAK ATTACKED Israel on the Evening of Yom Kippur, bringing Jews once again to a HAIR’S BREADTH . . . from being SLAUGHTERED in a Second HOLOCAUST, to the Point that Prime Minister Golda Meir was organizing TERMS OF SURRENDER, in the hopes that the Arabs wouldn’t Massacre all the Jews they could, before Israel could finally capitulate. Where was the world then?
But now it’s the Arab/Moslems turn where the entire West is debating upon ways to stop the Slaughter and stop the HURT . . . and it seems to be a different story.
SO WHY ARE THE Arabs/Moslem Countries NOT stepping up with Money, Services and a Territory, where they could ACCEPT, HOUSE & CARE for the Syrian Refugees?
AND IF ARAB/MOSLEM COUNTRIES . . . want nothing to do with the mostly Arab/Moslem Refugees, why should it be FORCED THROUGH GUILT UPON US?
And after seeing what the Arabs and Moslems have done in “GRATITUDE” to Europe for Taking-In Moslem and Arab Refugees . . . does anyone really think we should do the same as well?
President-Elect Trump has made it Repeatedly CLEAR . . . that America is BROKE, and CANNOT afford to Finance the World’s Miseries, and I will add . . . that this inability to cover the costs of INSANITY must also include MAN MADE MISERIES like Syria, while at the same time, Arab and Moslem Countries throughout the Middle East, Africa and Asia are AWASH IN PETROL-DOLLARS . . . SO WHY AREN’T THEY ANTEING-UP to protect and add succor to their own?
NONE OF US ON THE CONSERVATIVE SIDE . . . should be made to feel Guilty Enough to pick up the Mantle to Defend those who intrinsically want to Destroy us, much less to come to our countries, with which to bring SHARIA, Internecine Hatreds, Hatred of Jews, and Hatred for our Western Freedoms.
