I am a Jewess; I am about to celebrate the entry of the Jewish calendar year 5776.
Look as the positive side, the Jewish nation is a lucky nation;
For 2000 years, we survived, as Jews, faithful to our tradition, while scattered all over the world;
Since we were given the Ten Commandments, we did our best to adhere to the ten simple rules, all lift the value of life;
Hitler and his Nazi army are dead; we, the Jewish nation, have gone back to procreate and catch up on the numbers of Jews who died and in 2015 we have caught up. The souls of the six millions Jews murdered in the Holocaust are now in six million living Jews. We have as many Jews today as there were before the Holocaust. From here on, as per our God’s blessing, we multiply.
We now have a country its ancient and new name is Israel; it is the refuge and home for every Jew on earth, the wing under which every Jew can find a safe, protective place.
Israel saved the Jews of Yemen and Ethiopia from extinction. Without Israel they would have had no place to run to and be saved. So is in the case of every threatened Jewish community anywhere in the world. “Come home” the Prime Minister of Israel tells them and they do, in droves.
Israel is a country where Western Civilization was born; she is now an example of western values while other western countries are fast losing those values. No matter how much the enemy next door wants to destroy Israel, she stands proud for what and who Jews stand for and holds this mast with pride.
Our Jewish nation is smart. It invents, it leads by example in many aspects. Israel is seen in the front row of every human rights movement, disregarding the fact that those who denied Jews human rights for centuries are asking for Israel’s help.
Jews do not hold grudge. We are light unto the nations and lead by example, no matter what.
With all the threats, the heavy burden of wars and the hardship, Israelis make a happy nation.
These days, Israel is facing another Persian Haman - the Fanatic, Islamo-Nazis Mullahs in Iran - and their partners, United States president Obama and his fair-weather friends, Russia, China and the Europeans. Israelis and all Jews have one other mission. We need to spread the truth that Iran and the Middle East is the 21st century’s anti-Semitism and a possible Holocaust – Shoah - hottest bed.
The holocaust, some call this vicious phenomenon ‘Genetic Terrorism’ and some call it ‘Banality of Evil’ is indescribable; there are no words, in any language, to describe what the Nazis did to 6 Million Jews.
The Holocaust happened during the 20th century, only seventy years ago; it happened during our time, in very recent history. The Holocaust took place in the heart of Europe, in Germany, assuming the most intelligent, advanced and cultured country in the world.
In 1993, during the inauguration of the Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington D.C., President Bill Clinton delivered a speech in which he said, "I am ashamed of my government's complicity during the Holocaust and the untimely rescue of the victims of the Holocaust."
The word complicitY rings a bell today. It cuts sharp through one’s brain; President Clinton knew what the people did not know. It was 50 years since the war ended and information about the war was going through the president's office for declassification.
We now know that during the years when the Holocaust was in the making the USA War Department, the State Department, the American media, the American people were not ignorant about what was taking place across the ocean in Europe. It was all willful indifference, not willful ignorance. President Clinton, Nobel Laureate Elie Wiesel and many other people call it complicity.
President Roosevelt, the State Department to the media’s involvement and reaction, or lack of, to what was taking place in Europe in the late 1930s-early 1940s is still disturbing today; the failure of a timely rescue by the American leadership, and that includes the American Jewish leadership, still resonates.
We are dealing with the magnate of money; it is Iran’s oil asset and the billions of dollars the deal the West signed with this terror sponsor state will release. Like then and now life is not first priority. Then there were other, more important issues than stopping the rivers of innocent Jewish people's blood. Now there are irrelevant issues, such as loyalty to partly line and lack of moral values that leave a predicted war with Iran behind a heavy curtain of deceit and lies.
The Holocaust was a human tragedy like no other. It was the death of human conscience, it was the failure of Democracy. Sadly, today the United States, Europe, Russia and China are regressing to pre 1938 era. Anti-Semitism that brought about the Holocaust is on the rise in the United States, Europe, and many other spots on earth. It is the Jews who are to blame for a sickening world.
Jews do not own the Holocaust, they were its victims. Humanity owns the Holocaust.
The duty of the new generations, born to the now fast expiring surviving victims of the Holocaust and those who fought to defeat the Nazi evil, is to make sure, in words and deeds, that humanity does not EVER slip into making such atrocity happen AGAIN.
I hope we are not experiencing déjà vu, a collusion in the making of a possible 2nd Holocaust.
The entire world is dealing with Iran again. Haman of Persia wanted to kill the Jews of Persia, Iran’s mullahs want to destroy the State of Israel and the 6 million Jews living there. Iran vows to wipe Israel off the map.
We are certainly seeing complicity again, we are hearing insane rhetoric that makes no sense. Jews side with President Obama’s myopic foreign policy and his mountain of lies that the deal with Iran is good for Israel, it is good for the world.
Are we looking at deliberate indifference again?
Are the governments of the West keeping the public in the dark?
I will say yes to all of the above only that I am here to remind us all, that we, Jews, are a lucky nation. We have a homeland Israel, a beacon of light and truth. A happy country. Israel will protect the Jews and perhaps with her constant warnings about the danger Persia-Iran poses to the world she will wake up all the asleep.
Happy New Year to all!
