Holocaust Remembrance Day is a national holiday in “Israel”, one replete with official ceremonies which are, of course, sufficiently solemn. “Never again!” is liberally sprinkled like confetti at a parade. Officials stand by with folded hands at memorial sites looking, again, sufficiently solemn.
In truth, “standing by with folded hands” is precisely what the nascent State of “Israel’s” first leaders did before, during and after the dark years of World War II. The only difference is that then they weren’t passively standing at memorials, they were accomplices at crime scenes.
Yom HaShoah is, at best, a limp attempt at salving the collective guilty conscious of the Zionist Establishment and, at worst, a blatant and cumbersome piece of propaganda. Someone must have forgotten to tell the “Israeli” government. Fiction needs to be plausible.
Though pontificating might somehow satisfy this writer’s outrage at “Israel’s” presumption to commemorate the suffering of European Jewry, their own words should be adequate condemnation.
American rabbi Abraham Jacobson once said,
“’How many times have we heard the impious wish uttered in despair over the apathy of American Jews to Zionism that a Hitler descend upon them? Then they would realize the need for Palestine.”
(New Palestine. Abraham Jacobson)
When the only way to convince someone of your political views is mass murder by proxy, you’re on very shaky ground indeed.
“Israel’s” first president, Chaim Weizmann, sympathized (so to speak),
“The only dignified and really effective reply to all that is being inflicted upon the Jews of Germany is the edifice erected by our great and beautiful work in the land of Israel.”
(Weizmann – Last of the Patriarchs, p. 182)
Considering saving the Jews of Germany and other European countries was apparently neither dignified nor effective.
Perhaps one of the most unabashed statements was made by Enzo Sereni, a World War II era, prominent Italian Zionist and co-founder of Kibbutz Givat Brenner.
“We have nothing to be ashamed of in the fact that we used persecution of the Jews in Germany for upbuilding of Palestine.”
Rabbi Michoel Ber Weissmandel, of blessed memory, a Slovakian rabbi who almost single-handedly saved thousands of Jews during the Holocaust, wrote a letter in 1942(?) to the Jewish Agency in Switzerland pleading for money to stop transports of Czech Jewry to the gas chambers in Auschwitz. Nathan Schwalb, then serving as the Agency’s representative in Zurich, had this to say:
“As to the cry that comes from your country, we must be aware that all the nations of the Allies are spilling much blood and if we do not bring sacrifices, with what will we achieve the right to sit at the table when they make the distribution of nations and territories after the war? And so it would be foolish and impertinent on our side to ask the nations whose blood is being spilled for permission to send money into the land of their enemies in order to protect our own blood. Because only through blood will the land be ours. As to yourselves – members of the group – you will get out, and for this purpose we are providing you with funds by this courier.”
The Temple of Zionism requires “sacrifices” be brought to its altar.
In 1948, Rabbi Weissmandel published his “10 Questions to The Zionists”. Below are his questions.
1. IS IT TRUE that in 1941 and again in 1942, the German Gestapo offered all European Jews transit to Spain, if they would relinquish all their property in Germany and Occupied France; on condition that:
a) none of the deportees travel from Spain to Palestine; and
b) all the deportees be transported from Spain to the USA or British colonies, and there to remain; with entry visas to be arranged by the Jews living there; and
c) $1000.00 ransom for each family to be furnished by the Agency, payable upon the arrival of the family at the Spanish border at the rate of 1000 families daily.
2. IS IT TRUE that the Zionist leaders in Switzerland and Turkey received this offer with the clear understanding that the exclusion of Palestine as a destination for the deportees was based on an agreement between the Gestapo and the Mufti.
3. IS IT TRUE that the answer of the Zionist leaders was negative, with the following comments:
a) ONLY Palestine would be considered as a destination for the deportees.
b) The European Jews must accede to suffering and death greater in measure than the other nations, in order that the victorious allies agree to a “Jewish State” at the end of the war.
c) No ransom will be paid.
4. IS IT TRUE that this response to the Gestapo’s offer was made with the full knowledge that the alternative to this offer was the gas chamber.
5. IS IT TRUE that in 1944, at the time of the Hungarian deportations, a similar offer was made, whereby all Hungarian Jewry could be saved.
6. IS IT TRUE that the same Zionist hierarchy again refused this offer (after the gas chambers had already taken a toll of millions).
7. IS IT TRUE that during the height of the killings in the war, 270 Members of the British Parliament proposed to evacuate 500,000 Jews from Europe, and resettle them in British colonies, as a part of diplomatic negotiations with Germany.
8. IS IT TRUE that this offer was rejected by the Zionist leaders with the observation “Only to Palestine!”
9. IS IT TRUE that the British government granted visas to 300 rabbis and their families to the Colony of Mauritius, with passage for the evacuees through Turkey. The “Jewish Agency” leaders sabotaged this plan with the observation that the plan was disloyal to Palestine, and the 300 rabbis and their families should be gassed.
10. IS IT TRUE that during the course of the negotiations mentioned above, Chaim Weizmann, the first “Jewish statesman” stated:
“The most valuable part of the Jewish nation is already in Palestine, and those Jews living outside Palestine are not too important.”
Weizmann’s cohort, Greenbaum, amplified this statement with the observation,
“One cow in Palestine is worth more than all the Jews in Europe”.
