The Necessity to Remember.
by Steven Shamrak.
Since the end of WW2, May 2 has been established
as an auspicious day, Yom Hashoa – Day of Remembrance, in the Jewish calendar!
It is one day each year when Jews around the world remember the six million Jewish lives
that were lost during the Holocaust. It must never happen again; we say it
again and again. Please remind your friends and members of your family.
Israeli and other politicians especially need this reminder. It seems that they
have forgotten it! Someone wrote:
my grandfather left Europe in 1935,
on the walls was saying:
Jews, go to Palestine!
now, when I visit Europe, the graffiti says:
Jews, get out of
short memories these Europeans have!”
Palestine is Jewish land! The sooner we
all realise it, the sooner we’ll be able to free Eretz-Israel of its enemies
and peace come to Israel. It is time to look for workable, alternative
solutions to the conflict. The bogus peace process does not work. It is easier
to deter external enemies! We said “Never again”, but have continued to allow
enemies of the Jews to terrorise Israel for 60 years.
At the same time, non-Jews must realize that the remembrance
of the Holocaust is not about Jews only. It is also about death of 20 million
Russians, 10 million Christians including 1,900 Catholic priests who were
murdered, massacred, raped, burned, starved and humiliated by Nazis with the
help of ordinary Germans, Austrians, Poles, Latvians, Ukrainians, Russians and
others who looked the other way or actively participated in genocide! It
is also about millions of Germans who lost their lives it the madness of WW2
and their children and the grandchildren who carried the shame of Nazi Germany.
Remembrance of the Holocaust, contrary to common belief, is
not about guilt, shame or even financial compensation. It is about the future
of the humanity! We must end the pattern of hate and violence of human society.
It destroys humanity and our planet. Since WW2, the world has again allowed
genocides in Cambodia, Ruanda, Yugoslavia and Sudan! It is time for humanity to
learn the lesson!
On my way home after a Purim party last
Thursday I was verbally assaulted by four guys in the middle of one of the
busiest street of Melbourne. Make no mistake, Israel’s deftest policy and
excessive empathy toward a repulsive enemy has always been considered as a
weakness of Israel and Jewish people and it emboldens all anti-Semitic scum
around the world. This gutlessness is the main reason behind the sharp rise of
the anti-Semitism worldwide since the Oslo agreement!
Latvia: March to Honour SS Unit. Thousands of
Latvians marched in the capital city of Riga on last Sunday in honour of the
Latvian Legion, an SS unit that fought with the German army in World War II.
Local police protected the marchers from angry counter-protestors.
Quote of the Week:
and Muslim terrorists have not stopped trying to kill us, they have been less
successful thanks to our security services' vigilance and effectiveness.
We, in the USA and in Israel, are still very much at war with Jihadist and
Islamic genocidal terrorists.” - David Meir-Levi.
Cycle of the Fake Peace Process. Israel's chief negotiator,
Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni, met last Monday with her PA counterpart, Ahmed
Queria, after a hiatus declared by the PA side in protest at a bloody five-day
Israeli offensive against Hamas rocket crews in northern Gaza. "Terror will
not be an excuse to suspend talks," Livni said. (What
a stupid thing to say! Wasn’t Abbas offended just recently by Israel’s response
to Hamas terror attacks and suspended talks?)
‘Human Shields’ is not a Secret. A senior member of Hamas,
Fathi Hammad a member of the Hamas parliament, is seen bragging about the
Islamic group’s use of women, children, and the elderly as “human shields” in a
video by saying that Hamas terrorists “have formed human shields of the women,
the children, the elderly, and the mujahideen (terrorists), in order to
challenge the Zionist bombing machine.” (Will this
crime against humanity, which the enemies of Israel commit, receive any
international condemnation? You can bet your last dollar it will not!)
Food for Thought. by Steven Shamrak
and ambition wise there is no difference between the aims of Islam and
Christianity. Modern Islam is asserting itself as a prevailing religion, using
force and terror, the same way that Christianity used to a few hundred years
ago! Now in a position of power, Christianity is using the rules of law and
democratic principles to keep itself in a position of power. Throughout
history, the leaders of both sides have been instigating hate toward Jews in
order to destroy Judaism, thus their followers would not be reminded about the
ugly distortions and falsifications that had been introduced into the theology
from which both Christianity and Islam have taken root. Therefore, it is not
surprising that both sides, although detesting each other, have absolutely the
same hateful attitude toward Jews and Israel
, as a Jewish state!
Ongoing Hypocrisy. UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon condemned Israel
during his speech at the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) summit in
Senegal's capital Dakar: "Israel's disproportionate and excessive use of
force has killed and injured many civilians including children ... I condemn
these actions and call on Israel to cease such acts". (He did not ‘balance’ his speech with condemnation of
rocket attacks from Gaza, which are terrorising and killing civilians in
Israel. And, he did not condemn use of civilians as a human shield by Hamas and
Al Qaeda! At the same time, he said nothing about civilian casualties in Iraq
and Afghanistan that are caused by both sides! There was no condemnation of ethnic cleansing in Darfur, committed
by Sudan. Like his predecessors, he is playing the same ugly
Sudan: Another Genocide for UN to Answer for. "The weapons, the cars, all that you see, we got it from the
Government," Mohammed Hamdan, a Janjaweed commander said. This support was
given in direct breach of United Nations Resolution 1556, passed in July 2004,
which gave Sudan's regime 30 days to disarm the Janjaweed and bring its leaders
to justice. The war, which began in 2003, has claimed up to 300,000 lives from violence,
starvation and disease. At least 2 million people have fled their homes. (The Holocaust was facilitated by the League of
nations and member states. The UN (“Useless Nothing”) is responsible for
genocides in Tibet, Cambodia, Ruanda, war in Congo and more.)
Why is the US Financing Arabs in Israel? An alliance of
Israeli-Arab dialogue groups, 55 organizations, has lobbied Congress and the
Bush administration for more funding. Past lobbying led to a $9 million
allocation for such groups in the 2008 budget. Now this group is asking for
congressional appropriation for $11 million for 2009. (Why must the
American taxpayer indulge the social and anti-Israel activity of Arabs in
Israel? The money could be better used to provide education or health care for the
poor in US.)
the ‘Loaded’ Headlines:
vows to expand Jerusalem settlement” - msnbc.msn.com – But article started with: “Prime Minister Ehud Olmert
said Monday that Israel would keep expanding a Jewish neighbourhood in eastern
Jerusalem.” – So, it is not
a ‘settlement’ as the headline claims, but part of the natural expansion of
Jerusalem! Just because someone had made an illegitimate claim to your
property, would you stop you normal life?
Nothing is Enough!
Doris Wise Montrose and Anne Lieberman.
13th trip to Israel culminated in the murder of eight Torah students in the
heart of Jerusalem on March 6, 2008.
It would have been enough if she had continually excused Palestinians as
It would have been enough if she had overlooked the widespread popularity
of Hamas in Palestinian society.
It would have been enough if she had ignored Fatah's support for Hamas in the
face of Israeli attempt to end the missiles on Israeli cities.
It would have been enough if she had ignored Fatah's terrorist activities through its
own al Aksa Martyr's Brigade.
It would have been enough if she had insisted that the only way to end violence is to
establish a Palestinian state, rather than the other way around.
It would have been enough if she had called for Israel to step up its
humanitarian aid to Gaza, instead of holding Hamas responsible for any
It would have been enough if she had urged Israel to
demolish the communities built by Jews in Judea and Samaria.
It would have been enough if she had announced that the US will be giving $148
million to UNRWA in 2008 to support ‘refugee camps’ that are all
hotbeds of terror recruitment, training and indoctrination.
It would have been enough if President Bush had overridden a congressional
ban on the transfer of $150 million to a corrupt Fatah. (It appears, 60 years of Israel’s history
proves it, that nothing is enough for the enemies of Jewish people. Anything
short of the demise of Israel will be unacceptable to them!)
