Yom Hashoah

Today is Holocaust Remembrance Day, a day that was once a memorial day, a day of looking back, but is now a chilling tocsin of what the future might hold.  Everywhere in the world, antisemitism is on the rise.  Nor is this the cold, clinical antisemitism that once characterized England — the kind where people would sniff at someone and say “Oh, he’s a Jew.”  Jews might be socially ostracized and subject to petty humiliations, but they were not tortured, killed, or denied civil rights by their own government.

All over the world today, including in England, Jews are facing a worldwide rise in violent antisemitism that his not just a “chill,” is a scary, furnace-like heat.  (I keep mentioning England because it has swung more violently than any other European country from an “I don’t care” view of Jews to a blood-thirsty hatred for Jews and Israel.)  I don’t have the heart or the time to detail the attacks.  I will share with you a video showing what happens to Jews when the world turns on them, with the background music being an extremely rare recording of Bergen-Belsen survivors signing the “Hatikvah.”

By the way, David Goldman (Spengler) has the good news, which is that Jew hating-societies are dying off, because off low birth rates.  Jews stand for life (“I say to you, choose life“), so it’s not surprising that these cultures embrace death, their own and other’s.  The problem, of course, is that these dying cultures can still cause a lot of trouble as they grapple with their own convulsive death throes.

    I wish that Anti-antisemitism were to vanish all together.  But I fear that while Euro antisemites may be dying off the Muslim faction as pointed out in “Because They Hate” By Brigitte Gabrielle noted their reproduction rate outpaces those around them.  She recalls the fall of “Paris of the Middle East” aka Lebanon that the predominant religion was Christian and those parents would have two children and send them to college and as time went on the Muslims would have eight and not send them to college…then the war.  I know there is more to it than that but that is the gist of what I remember.  Ah, remember also her impression as a 13 year-old being transported across the border into Israel and how she was treated versus how her ‘countrymen’ treated her.  Let’s the scales fell from her eyes that day and she became a friend of Israel.

    The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, and the orchard is rife with rot. The UK has set the template and tolerance of anti-Semitism with the elected and unelected. Ken Livingstone: “I will make London a beacon of Islam…”
     
    Bookworm, thanks for posting the recording. I’ve had a copy of it in a folder for many years. In Israel on Yom Hashoah, the sirens wail for two minutes. Traffic stops, drivers exit their vehicles and pedestrians stand in place and for a moment each year – the collective soul of the Jewish people stop to remember the dead. It will happen again next week on April 15th as the country stops again for Yom Hazikaron, to remember those that have died within Israel from her enemies. It’s more than an overwhelming experience and there’s not another country in the world that honors her fallen in quite the same way.
