Global Re-Nazification and Yom Hashoah

Global Re-Nazification and Yom Hashoah

Today is Yom Hashoah, Holocaust Commemoration Day. As usual the
Jewish left will strive to commemorate the Holocaust by trying to
promote a second one….

It has become fashionable in certain quarters, including among
some self-hating Jews, to challenge the uniqueness of the Holocaust,
to argue that it was just another in a long list of human savagery and
mass barbarism, no different from the deaths of Armenians in WWI or of
Cambodians or of Rwandans or of Gypsies. (The Cambodian genocide was
made possible in part by Noam Chomsky serving as promoter and
apologist for the Khmer Rouge and denying throughout that the Khmer
Rouse was annihilating millions of Cambodians. Talk about ”Holocaust
Denial”). According to this ”approach,” there was nothing unique
about the Holocaust, no reason why it should be regarded as sui
generic, and hence Jews should stop all their ”yapping” about it.

What is one to make of such people? It is certainly true that
there have been other cases of large-scale mass murder. But the
comparisons with the Holocaust are absurd.

There are many reasons why this is so. But I was struck by the
fact that in today’s Haaretz, one of the worst Oslo leftists managed
to put his finger smack accurately on what may be the most important
of these reasons. The most important difference is very simple. When
Noam Chomsky’s friends were murdering millions of Cambodians, the
world (other than the doctrinaire Stalinists) was horrified, demanded
that something be done, and denounced the atrocities. When the
Rwandans were butchering one another, the civilized world was
horrified, tried to stop the murders, tried to intervene, and
denounced the atrocities.

When the Jews of Europe were being annihilated, the “civilized
world” was indifferent, and much of it was downright supportive of the
annihilation. Large segments of the “civilized world” collaborated
with the genocide. Very few in the “civilized world” demanded serious
military efforts to end it. The “civilized world” sat in silence in
the decade leading up to the Shoah, while Hitler expounded his plans
openly. Many in the anti-Semitic West sympathized with his program.

I mention all this, because I think that one of the best litmus
tests of the extent of re-nazification of the planet is to observe the
reactions of the world to the assassination of the Gaza Nazi, Rantisi.
All those denouncing Israel’s hit on Rantisi as ”state terrorism,”
as a crime, as a violation of ”international law,” as violating
Palestinian ”rights,” as aggression, as itself ”nazism,” ALL such
people are today’s most visible illustration of global
re-nazification. ALL of these people are in fact in favor of the
random mass murder of Jewish children. ALL of these people oppose
every form of Jewish self-defense except capitulation to Nazism and
passive Jewish marching into the gas chambers. All of these people
would cheer if the Islamofascists ever succeed in building
concentration camps for Jews. The leftists Jews who will no doubt now
denounce the assassination of Rantisi, with all the usual lame
”reasons” (bad timing, will just bring forth worse extremists,
violation of Palestinian ”sovereignty,” creates more motivation for
terrorists, etc. etc.), should be formally dubbed the Jews for a
Second Holocaust.

And right on schedule, the British government and the British
Israel-Bashing press, especially the BBC, denounced Israel’s
verminating Rantisi as a ”crime.” Now let me see if I have this
correct. Only days after the British, as part of the Allied
anti-Islamofascist coalition in Iraq, participate in the extermination
of over a thousand Iraqis in Fallujah and elsewhere, many of them
innocent civilians, and now the British declare that when Israel
recycles a nazi mass murdering Islamofascist who has murdered hundreds
of Israeli civilians, many children, this constitutes a crime and
violation of ”international law.” It appears that it is only a
matter of days before the chief Shi’ite terrorist in Najaf Iraq will
be terminated by the good guys, including the Brits. Will the BBC
also regard that as a crime? Probably it will!

Don’t get me wrong, by the way. I endorse the Allied actions in
Iraq. But did you notice that the mowing down of the thousand Iraqis
was the Allied response to the murder of four Americans and the
hanging of their corpses on a bridge? And the greatest hush-hush
secret the media are refusing to report this week is that the killing
of the thousand resulted in near tranquility this week in most of
Iraq! Perhaps there are military solutions to the problems of
terrorism after all?

“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.” - WS
