The past few days Bibi has spoken out about the Holocaust three times during major speeches in Jerusalem and Germany. He’s gotten at least one response, that from Angela Merkel who had to say simply “I am sorry. We confirm and recognize our part.” Nethanyhu often brings up the Holocaust as many Israeli politicians do. Not by designation, he usually says gruffly, but sadly “We lost six million Jews.”
With in the context of these speeches a Zionist historical story surfaces as part justification for the taking of Palestinian land. Back in the early 1930s the Arab Mufti of Jerusalem visited Berlin and met with Adolf Hitler. I saw the scratchy newsreels, and several balanced documentaries of the event. The story goes the Mufti put a bug in Hitler’s ear to start a holocaust that is a little difficult to believe. The Mufti was, without proof, is reported to have said “You should get rid of those Jews who are ruining your country.” (I don’t know, I wasn’t there) It is common knowledge most Arab nations supported Nazi Germany during WWII, but it is hard to believe in just a couple short meetings with the Mufti that Hitler directly received the advice, and if it ever was provided. Moreover, that it had a timely effect on Adolf. Remember Hitler was the worlds greatest, most bitter anti-Semitic in history, and held the ideology for several decades before gaining power over the nation. Hitler hated the Jews. (With the exception, as a teenager, he had a crush on a Jewish girl who rejected him. If true?)
I have read Mein Kampt one and a half times in my life, and it is to me disorganize trash. In it Hitler, as a poor struggling artist, describes walking down Vienna Avenues to see the repugnant face features of the Jew minority, their separation from the rest of the German people, with long dark hair, beards, and black coats and hats. He writes, as if they were from another country, a country within a country, different from the great German nation to be. After soldier Hitler was gassed I’m quite sure he took to heart the popular “Stab in the Back” theory, that the wealthy banker Jews and other weaklings took the patriotic spark of winning from the German people and the nation went down to defeat. The theory goes the Jews secretly sided with the West and benefited and got rich.
By Jews mentioning the subject of the Holocaust on occasion may be good for social acceptance and particularly in politics and business in America. The U. S. has almost as many Jews, and wealthier one, than there are in Israel. They generate Holocaust Museums, study halls, tours, and remembrance ceremonies that abound throughout the world, Japan, China, and Washington DC, and particularly Poland, as examples. These nurture worldwide sympathy, donations, and significant reparations past and present that recreate horror and profit for a this ‘peace-loving nation’ that constantly maintains, “We have the right to defend ourselves.”
Sure, sure absolutely, and you can do it with your well-trained IDF, and large nuclear arsenal. But let’s not take it out on the Palestinians. Haven’t Zionist done enough to conquer, destroy, suppress, and kill poor helpless people in the West Bank and Gaza? One reason Israel acts so flagrantly and arrogantly is it has the full support of the U. S. Congress and most of hometown America taking in the Jewish capital New York City, and its second capital Hollywood. These interest have supported Israel from near day one of its independence with generous economic and military aid. The U. S. is currently morally bound to provide support to Israel not only because they are white, but because Israel has many enemies. One of the most uncooperative and disliked nations in the world.
There have been many holocausts and mass-massacres in history and unfortunately, God help us, in this nuclear age there could be more horrible examples of murder done this time in a split second. Readers let us not forget the Jewish Holocaust, honor it, but again not worship it so as to cloud our political perspect . Let’s prevent the next one.
All the best
Note: Netanyahu is fond of old-soldier-politician-Kerry. He likes Kerry because he took in and cared for an orphaned Jewish lady who happens to own Heinz Ketchup, and Bibi appreciates that. He spreads Heinz Ketchup on his Kosher matzah balls every chance he gets.
