Holocaust memorial day – we get it

Today is the official UN International Holocaust Remembrance Day.

 It was on this date that Auschwitz was overrun by the Red Army.

Jews do not need a particular date on the calendar to remember the humiliation, torture, and murder of our people by the Nazis and their many, many, many willing helpers.

The UN resolution representing the nations of the world is very little, very very late, and hypocritical.

The nations of the world would have done better to find their conscience and moral compass when the Jewish people needed it most. They would do well to finally find it today.

But they don’t.

Only a tiny handful of saintly souls who chose the path of good did not loin the rest of the world who were either active or silent accomplices in the attempt to murder the Jewish nation a few years ago.

One should not be confused about the UN resolution that condemns the genocide of the Jewish people and then proceeds to place Israel in a “bad corner” designed and reserved only for the Jews. The UN created a special category for the pariah state that the Jewish survivors built and defends from annihilation.

The well-worn accusations and libels of the nations and the official world body don’t surprise us anymore. We have heard the same for thousands of years.

The long list of truly monstrous, criminal countries that are warmly welcomed into the family of nations while the Jewish state is always maligned no longer surprises us.

We no longer seek logic or justice.

 Just a few years after the Holocaust nations again openly prepare to wipe the Jews off the face of the earth.

Individual Jews the world over, are increasingly attacked verbally and physically.  Nothing has changed.

Again, or still, there are Jews who will ask “what can we do to convince them that we are really good and be accepted. How can we correct ourselves? There must be a reason for their hate.

“Jewish guilt”, as Jewish as chicken soup.


It’s not about borders or “Palestinians”. It’s much older and much deeper than any political conflict.

It’s about Jews, it’s called antisemitism.

The holocaust was the greatest Hillul Hashem (disgrace of G-d’s name) in history because the forces of evil humiliated the chosen People of G-d the vehicle he chose for His message of good.

The Jewish people have always been that small annoying voice reminding the world that they are expected to choose good over evil.

Not everyone likes this reminder.

In their eyes, the Jews were the biggest threat to the rule of evil and had to be humiliated and killed to the very last Jewish baby.

They understood. There was logic to their obsession.

In this, it was also a Kiddush Hashem (Hallowing G-d’s name). We are the ones that Evil has always identified as their enemy, today as well. What an honor!

That is a big statement.

How does one logically explain the constant attack on the Jewish state in the UN?

Why is Israel the only country slated for annihilation?

Why does Europe pay lip service to Holocaust conscience and memory and then enable those in the Muslim world who revel in Jew-hatred and actively try to destroy the country of the Holocaust survivors?

Why does Europe, and the rest of the world champion the manufactured “Palestinians” in their quest to wipe out and replace the Jews in their promised land?

Why the urgency, why the obsession? Are there no other problems in the world?

Is this what being “enlightened ” looks like?

 Dear enlightened world, we don’t expect logical answers or justice.

We know the answer.

Now that we understand each other, shall we end the charade?

Listen well.
