THE CHRISTIAN HOLOCAUST I: Ritual Sacrifice of ‘Infidels’ by US supported Muslim Rebels in Syria

Please listen to every word as though your life depended on it. It may. . .

_______

The ‘unholy alliance’ of the political left and the Jihadis, hates Christians and Jews. Their respective genocidal and brutally oppressive histories confirm this fact. That is why the US state-sponsored-media and State Department under the Obama administration are unconcerned with the holocaust against Christians that is taking place in the Middle-East and North Africa as we speak. It is a direct consequence of US Foreign Policy related to the so-called ‘Arab spring’.

Concurrently they are trying to undermine Israel’s capacity to defend itself against neighbors with genocidal intent, by turning Israel back to the 1967 borders. The Israeli conservatives call these the ‘Auschwitz borders’.

Christians and Jews . . . quoting Psalm 44:22

As it is written: “For Your sake we are killed all day long; We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.” Romans 8:36

Christians and Jews . . . and whose newspapers cover it? Israeli . . . [1]

The slaughter in Syria that is being conducted by US-supported rebels (FSA and DASH), is pagan-ritual human sacrifice. It took an ex-Muslim, ex-terrorist, Palestinian Christian to bother uncovering it.

By Michael Horowitz’ 1990’s reckoning of 400 martyrs per day, the Christian church is by now approaching the 3,000,000 mark in it’s latest holocaust. Christians and Jews . . . .

CONSEQUENCES : Yesterday and Today

“The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president.”
Source: attributed to an article published in the Czech Republic, Prager Zeitung, 28 April 2010.

The Czech Republic should know about princely fools. Czechoslavakia was sold out in 1938 by France and Britain in return for “peace in our time’ with Adolph Hitler. It was a land-for-peace deal: sound familiar? Then again at the end of the Second World War to the USSR and then again in 1968, during the Prague Spring. Prague Spring was a REAL Spring . . . not like the so-called Arab Spring which is in fact the Arab winter (as confirmed by events in Egypt and Libya recently).

Czechoslovakia provided the necessary military and topographical barrier to Hitler’s expansion that could have prevented the Second World War had Britain and France abided by the treaty they had signed. The Czechs were sold out in a ‘land for peace’ appeasement that cost Europe 30 million lives, effected the destruction of the most advanced industrial nation in Europe (Germany) and the devastation of the Jewish people. Israel is the modern-day Czechoslovakia and the same terrorist-appeasement slogans are being tossed about today against Israel in order to destroy her safety and sovereignty in a disastrous play for regional peace. The ‘princes’ are negotiating for peace with the ideological offspring of Hitler’s Palestinian Reichsfeurer: Haj Amin Al Husseini[1]. It was Yasser Arafat in his day and (unless he resurrects during the exhumation procedure) it is Holocaust-denier and ‘partner-for-peace’ Mahmoud Abbas (Abu Masden)[2] today. Haj was their ideological ‘daddy’.

The recently sanitized terrorist organization (Hamas) is not currently the terrorist-of-choice, flavor-of-the-month for the US administration. Given the recent vote for Palestinian statehood at the United Nations[3], Fatah have been chosen as the ‘good terrorist’ and will appear in their business suits as “moderate realists” in the days to come, planning the destruction of Israel by diplomacy, because Kassams and Katushya failed.

Just as Hitler destroyed Czechoslovakia’s sovereignty at the Munich Conference with British and French complicity[4] (using a contrived ‘oppressed ethnic minority’) the UN are manufacturing the demise of Israeli sovereignty by their goal of eventual Palestinian statehood. Czechoslovakia was not invited to the table either. Sound familiar?[5]

Then the ‘princes of fools’ (after virtually ‘guaranteeing’ the Nazi occupation) again sold Czechoslovakia out to Stalin (Soviet occupation) for Stalin’s part in the defeat of his former ally, Adolf Hitler[6]. More fools then stood idly by as the Czech Prague Spring was crushed by Soviet tanks on Aug 21, 1968. The Prague Spring was a REAL Spring not like the so-called ‘Arab Spring’ which has already turned itself into the predictable Arab Winter. Recent events in Egypt and Libya were so inevitable that only CNN, BBC, ABC, NBC, CBS and the Obama administration could miss it.

The Czechs understand and mourn a once-reliable ally: The United States of America. They are wise enough to know that it is After America. They saw President Obama pat Medvedev’s leg at the 2012 Nuclear Summit negotiations[7] in South Korea and request (off mike) that Vladmir ‘give him some space’ till his “. . . second term”. The Czechs knew what that would likely mean.

Thus, a man who surrounded himself with (a) liberation Theologians (Jeremiah Wright), (b) an unrepentant domestic- ex-terrorist (Bill Ayers – now a respected educator), (c) Marxists and ‘911 truthers’, (d) who spent more taxpayer dollars in four years than President George W. Bush spent is eight, (e) who may have abandoned American citizens and sovereign US territory to Al-Qaida on 9/11, 2012 (Benghazi, Libya), (f) who saw unemployment figures, gas prices and deficit statistics rise in a way that should defeat any incumbent president,(g) whose Attorney General is embroiled in multiple scandals including Fast and Furious (where US Agents were killed by weapons sold in a failed, federally sanctioned arms sale to Mexican Drug Cartels) . . . this man was re-elected by American citizens to head the ‘Free’ World on November 6th.

Jamie Foxx at the November 8th Soul Train Awards in Las Vegas called Barak Obama his lord and savior, further authenticating the idiocy of the Hollywood propaganda machine that worked so energetically to assure Obama’s re-election on November 6th.

“Paul Devereaux was not a politician. Jonathan Silver was. He knew that, in politics, what is real is not important. The important is what appears to be real to the gullible. And what appears to be real is purveyed by the media and purchased by the gullible.”

Frederick Forsyth. The Cobra. p.377 [8]

THE DIFFERENCE

Psalm 2:1-9

New International Version 1984 (NIV1984)

1 Why do the nations conspire
and the peoples plot in vain?
2 The kings of the earth take their stand
and the rulers gather together
against the LORD and against his Anointed One.

Mass graves at Bergen Belsen concentration camp, 1945.

Ezekiel 37:21-22

New International Version 1984 (NIV1984)

21 and say to them, ‘This is what the Sovereign LORD says: I will take the Israelites out of the nations where they have gone. I will gather them from all around and bring them back into their own land. 22 I will make them one nation in the land, on the mountains of Israel. There will be one king over all of them and they will never again be two nations or be divided into two kingdoms.

Psalm 83:1-5

King James Version (KJV)

1Keep not thou silence, O God: hold not thy peace, and be not still, O God. 2For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult: and they that hate thee have lifted up the head. 3They have taken crafty counsel against thy people, and consulted against thy hidden ones. 4They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance. 5For they have consulted together with one consent: they are confederate against thee

In the name of Allah, Most Merciful and Compassionate(???)
Go Out and Kill Jews, Christians, Buddhists and Hindus!

Over the last 1400 years, 270 million non-believers were murdered by Muslim jihadists. Islam destroyed the Christian Middle East and Christian North Africa. It is estimated that upwards of 60 million Christians were slaughtered during this conquest. (www.masada2000.org/islam.html)

Ezekiel 38:10-12

New King James Version (NKJV)

10 ‘Thus says the Lord GOD: “On that day it shall come to pass that thoughts will arise in your mind, and you will make an evil plan: 11 You will say, ‘I will go up against a land of unwalled villages; I will go to a peaceful people, who dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates’— 12 to take plunder and to take booty, to stretch out your hand against the waste places that are again inhabited, and against a people gathered from the nations, who have acquired livestock and goods, who dwell in the midst of the land.

Ezekiel 38:16

New King James Version (NKJV)

16 You will come up against My people Israel like a cloud, to cover the land. It will be in the latter days that I will bring you against My land, so that the nations may know Me, when I am hallowed in you, O Gog, before their eyes.”

Zechariah 14:2-3

2 I will gather all the nations to Jerusalem to fight against it; the city will be captured, the houses ransacked, and the women raped. Half of the city will go into exile, but the rest of the people will not be taken from the city.
3 Then the LORD will go out and fight against those nations, as he fights in the day of battle.

Ezekiel 38:21-23

New International Version 1984 (NIV1984)

21 I will summon a sword against Gog on all my mountains, declares the Sovereign LORD. Every man’s sword will be against his brother. 22 I will execute judgment upon him with plague and bloodshed; I will pour down torrents of rain, hailstones and burning sulfur on him and on his troops and on the many nations with him. 23 And so I will show my greatness and my holiness, and I will make myself known in the sight of many nations. Then they will know that I am the LORD.’

Zechariah 12:9-10

New International Version 1984 (NIV1984)

9 On that day I will set out to destroy all the nations that attack Jerusalem.
10 “And I will pour out on the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem a spirit of grace and supplication. They will look on me, the one they have pierced, and they will mourn for him as one mourns for an only child, and grieve bitterly for him as one grieves for a firstborn son.

Students of Eschatology disagree on the chronology of events. There may well be several wars depicted here but clearly, whether Psalm 83 (specific nations) or Ezekiel 38 (specific and different nations) Zechariah 14 (all nations), those who have bloody intentions against the Jewish people will pay a price. The Germans did, the Russians did, the British are and all other nations will.

Be forewarned Islam and your leftist allies. A tiny little nation of less than 6 million people handed the mighty Soviet Empire its only military defeat in conventional warfare. The mighty Chinese empire and the new Russian confederation and the newly Islam-icized Europe and the USA are messing in dangerous territory. God has claimed that land and that people and if you attack them you are sticking your finger in GOD’S eye. As Adolph Hitler, the Soviet Stalinists, the British Empire, Gamal Abdul Nasser, and Sadam Hussein learned: there is a price to pay.

As the Jewish people celebrate Hannakah and the Christians celebrate Christmas there will be no more entries on this blog till the New Year.

This blog and it’s content are dedicated to the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the GOD of the Jews and the Christians. Our debt to the Jewish people is immeasurable as they have brought us the Oracles of God in the Torah and Tenakh.

DEJA VU

Posted: December 1, 2011 in history, holocaust, Israel, partisan movement

In the lead-up to the Second World War, the world betrayed Czechoslovakia and fed it to the Nazi monster in return for a peace that was a fantasy. In so doing, America and the Western European nations guaranteed war. Then, under cover of darkness, the Holocaust began.

The Jews were faced with a choice when the true magnitude of the Final Solution was told them: believe a fantasy of food and work as they died of disease and starvation or face the hardships of the forest and return the violence on the heads of those who would exterminate them. The tiny minority who chose to define their humanity in a fight for survival and retribution, became an integral part of the birth of a new nation: Israel. For the first time in 2000 years they had the means and the right to fight for their survival as a sovereign nation.

Like Adolph Hitler, the Hitler of Tehran has told the Jews what he has in store for them. Once again the Jews are faced with a decision. Few will choose to fight and take on the hardship of ‘the forest’ in the face of threatened annihilation. They are blackmailed by the fictitious ‘international community’ (like Czechoslovakia) into trading away their land and capacity for self-defense in return for a fantasy of peace.

Man learns nothing from history.

So the ‘Desert Partisans’ (Israel) who know what’s at stake, will once again take the war to the Nazis rather than waiting for the Nazis to bring it to them. The rest will die slowly in the ghettos.

The Jews: outnumbered, out-gunned, abandoned, despised and betrayed . . . again. . . courageously uphold their slogan: “NEVER AGAIN“ .

DONNING THE YELLOW STAR:
ISSUES RAISED BY THE JEWISH PARTISAN MOVEMENT
PART II

What emerges from these diaries – is a picture of a community devastated by barbarism , never embracing underground movements, partisan fighters or strategies based on violence that might bring mass reprisal. Diary entries critical to an understanding of the Jewish community’s despair describe a population increasingly suffering physical weakness and debilitation, and forced to confront the terror of not being able to protect children. By the time these victims reached the gas chambers – if they had not been killed by disease, brutality, and mass starvation –they had been depleted by hunger and the war waged by the Germans on physical survival.

Glass. Jewish Resistance. Op. cit. p.23

The politicians and their media stenographers tell us that economic development and the taste for democracy will replace the impulse to Communist totalitarianism and Jihad. After all, we are all self-interested individuals are we not ? We all want freedom and the democratic way do we not ? Computers, internet gaming, pizza, football and Lady GaGa will replace ‘death-to-the-Jews’ summer training camps for youth in Palestine(1), will they not ?

Self-interest did not motivate the Nazis: an ideology of hate did. It has returned.

Francis Fukuyama was wrong.(2) The collapse of the Soviet Union was not the End of History. . . Communist ideology never died as we see university students donning the red star, hammer and sickle, Mao hats and jackets, Fidel and Che Guevara memorabilia. Fascist ideology never died and the new Islamist-Fascism has shown more genius than the other two ideologies combined.

Just as Neville Chamberlain, the Jewish Police and well-meaning collaborators now live in the history of infamy by their appeasement of Nazism, so too will the ‘realists’, ‘pragmatists’, and ‘rationalists’ when the Jihad gains irresistible momentum in alliance with Russia, North Korea and the Communist Chinese. As Tarek Fatah said in his 2011address to Ideacity (3), “If we do not confront them today, our children will not forgive us tomorrow. . .”

As the ghettos and the trains froze, starved, infected, de-humanized and neutralized Jewish men, women and children, the partisans created survival and resistance communities in the inhospitable forests.(4) Most Jews were unwilling, unable or incapable of joining them.

Much Jewish behavior had been conditioned by history And the culture of getting by and negotiating differences. But the suddenness of the German advance and the unremitting war the Germans waged against Jewish children and Jewish families through ghettoization and the policy of mass reprisals severely restricted the Jewish response.

Glass. Jewish Resistance. . . op.cit. p. 13

A ‘philosophy of resistance’ to annihilation (with a specifically Jewish character) developed and after the defeat of Germany, it moved to Palestine to continue the fight for survival as in contravention of international law, five Arab armies swept down to eradicate the newly formed Israeli state. Had they been successful, they would have erased the only place on earth where armed Jewish women and men could legitimately defend their families and fight as Jews for their right to survive as Jews. It was an experience they had not known for 2000 years.

Though the Russians continuously tried to absorb the Jewish partisans into their ranks, the Bielski brothers(5) and Abba Kovner’s(6) group resisted and were mostly successful. They were well experienced with Russian, Polish, Ukrainian, Baltic and Balkan anti-Semitism. For these men, loss of their identity into groups that hated them as Jews, would have been akin to jumping from the frying pan into the fire. Besides, as the atrocities against Jews (trying to return to their homes in Europe)(7) began to leak out, the Zionist predictions of Theodore Hertzl came true and Palestine was the only realistic option. Jews would never again be safe in Europe.

Even after the Second World War, Europe remained treacherous for the Jews. Why ? Because history does not follow the abrupt changes suggested by the dates in the history books, which read like stage directions: Exit Fascist Germany, enter Democratic Germany. The massacre did not make the Poles sympathetic to the Jews, nor did it convince most Germans that they were wrong – about the Jews, about anything. . . The decent Germany that appeared so soon after the War was an American construct, a story we told ourselves to get through the Cold War.

Cohen. The Avengers. Op cit p. 175

Jews who tried to return to their homes were ‘welcomed’ by new gentile occupants who mobbed, beat or murdered them and drove them out of communities where they had lived peacefully for centuries.

The Partisans were a key strategic feature of the war and the Jewish partisans(8) got little credit for the disproportionate damage they did to the German war machine – given their extremely small numbers. During the peak of partisan resistance the Germans lost close to 1000 trains a month, millions of dollars in lost equipment and munitions and of psychological importance – they lived in open defiance of German rule. Estimates vary as to German casualties but the lowest are in the range of 7000 (German stats) vs Soviet estimates of 500,000. Within this movement the Jews had to protect themselves from the other Partisan groups seeking to assimilate them (Soviets) threaten them or wipe them out. It became abundantly clear that most of their comrades at arms – basically hated them, but for a moment they shared a common goal.

Abba Kovner Partisans

However, for the Jewish partisans, rescue and revenge were their primary motivators amidst the very specific attack that had been made on them as a people, unlike any other people: “. . . the perpetrators were going to pay for exterminating my mother, my father, my sisters, my brother, my aunt, my uncle, my neighbours, my friends, my community, my work, my life, my history, my people, my humanity. . .”

I will tell you about a world that went crazy, a world where humans became beasts, turned worthless, and the forests became “home”. And I will tell you about people who refused to surrender to bestiality, people who resisted the descent into darkness. Most of them are gone, but I see them still, in their tattered rags, city boys darting from tree to tree in the forest, repaying death with death.I too, was a city boy, and although I survived, I have never really left those forests.
Glass. Jewish Resistance. Op cit pp. 97-98.

Thus, these Jewish Partisan Warriors, motivated by the desire to rescue their ‘race’ and to avenge their family’s deaths, were of remarkable strategic significance in defeating the Nazis by disrupting the supply lines to the Russian Front. Especially in Belarus, the Jewish Bielsky Otriads dignified themselves with the rescue of some 1200 Jews (in what would otherwise have been a totally obliterated community) by inflicting significant damage on the German war machine.

But what was most important to the Jewish mind was the development of a ‘resistance community’ that not only defied extermination and defended itself but a community forged in the forests that was determined to exact a very high price in violence against those who considered them (the Jews) to be without humanity. In so doing, they psychologically and socially established their indisputable humanity. But the values of civilized Jewish, European urban life had to be replaced by a new social dynamic: survival as a people.

Bielski’s Rousseauian community demonstrates how fragile traditional values in dealing with the ‘outsider’ are in an environment where the political and cultural rules of the game have been shattered. What today we take for granted – individuality, tolerance skepticism, suspension of belief, respect for the rules of the game, and so on – in the ghettos and forests became serious dangers to life.

Glass. Jewish Resistance. . .op cit p. 100

Driven from their homes, from nations to which they had been loyal, from a continent and a civilization to which they had contributed disproportionately, the Jews went on to Palestine where a new attempt was made to drive them out.

But after May 14th, 1948 they had a Jewish nation, a Jewish government, a territory (not named by other national groups) and the right to fight to the death or to life, dressed in a uniform that was not marked with the symbols of ‘the nations’ but had the Jewish Star on it. They could open their doors to every other Jew in the Diaspora to join them in their fight to survive the genocidal impulses of their ancient neighbours and to not be ruled by goyim who would eventually scapegoat them for every failure of their own administrations. They would have sons and daughters, each of which represented new birth and resistance to a world that wished them to disappear off the face of the earth

The ‘Resistors’and The Avengers were instrumental in building the Israeli Defense Force and in psychologically motivating the new soldiers. Israel’s survival against overwhelming odds in 1948, 1956, 1967 and 1973 was significantly influenced by these ‘fighting survivors’ who were heroes to those who had grown up in Israel. They were instrumental in the development of the ideology of specific Kibbutzim and the foundation of a nation whose slogan was: “Never Again. . . “

Their heroic resistance was not primarily (nor even significantly) motivated by Torah nor Tanakh as was the case with most of the Zionist groups to settle in Palestine before Independence. The modern state of Israel is primarily a secular culture. But in a remarkable (but oft-repeated) phenomenon, one might say it was the faithless who by their actions became the instrument God used to fulfill the prayers of the faithful.

And he will set up an ensign for the nations, and will assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth.
Isaiah 11:12

DONNING THE YELLOW STAR:
ISSUES RAISED BY THE
JEWISH PARTISAN MOVEMENT
PART I

A few nights before, the girl, who was about seventeen, had been found in the forest by Jews out foraging for food. The girl was bruised and bloody, and was wearing no clothes. She had been walking for two days. She had seen the Jews of Vilna killed in the forest of Ponar. . . The girl was taken to Jacob Gens. She told him she had seen the Jews of Vilna lined up and shot; she told him how she had escaped. . . . He did not believe her story. She was crazy. Very clearly. It was sad, but how could what she said be true ? No. He could not believe it. It threw into question his very sense of the world. Gens saw himself as a realist; like all other realists, he believed that man is motivated by self-interest. Killing the Jews of Vilna could not be in the self-interest of the Germans.

Rich Cohen. The Avengers. A Jewish War Story.
Vintage Books. New York 2001. pp. 38-39

The ‘realists’ in the White House and the Western European parliaments ‘know’ that the Muslim nations of the world are really motivated by self-interest and the wish to work for Microsoft. They know that the seed of freedom and democracy throbs in their breast and it could not possibly be in their interest to nuke Israel or destroy America. To them the alternative is unimaginable . . . to a rationalist, a secular humanist. It cannot be true. Unimaginable but true for Jacob Gens and for today’s foreign policy commissars.

The reason ? It was not self-interest that drove the Germans to the Holocaust nor Jihadists to the Apocalypse. It is ideology.

As the “Arab Spring” brings murder, torture, rape and expulsion to North Africa’s Christian communities and 1000 Palestinian terrorists flood onto the streets of Israel’s cities after the release of Gilad Shalit(1), the White House and its stenographers in the media celebrate the birth of democracy in the Middle East. The Unholy Alliance(2) (the Left and Islamic Jihad) has a proud history of persecuting Christians and Jews to the applause of their ‘bots’ in their various state-sponsored media so there is little new to report. But in the context of the ‘Yellow Star’ what questions does this raise for Christians and Jews and the organizations which represent them.

Well, for the newly ‘Chrislam’(3) evangelicals, trying to harmonize the Koran and the Bible, it is not much of an issue. We can simply become Muslims. Alternatively, for those who have decided that Islam is God’s Judgment on backslidden Jewry and the Christian Church, the task is largely to prepare oneself Spiritually for being “. . . lambs to the slaughter”(4). But is this Biblically the only legitimate course of action ? If so then ‘Donning the Yellow Star’ would mean joining the Jews in their walk to ‘the camps’.

Although nearly anathema as a topic of discussion in the Christian Church, the Biblical position or positions (i.e. the ‘Pacifist’ vs ‘Just War’ debate) should be raised now because when your brothers and sisters are being subjected to violence, persecution and discrimination, (as is the case in 1/3 of Christendom) that is not always the point at which prayerful, careful, reasoned, Biblically-founded conclusions can be drawn.(5) The Jews have been faced with this issue for 2000 years as have sub-groups of Christians but in North America and Western Europe we have been lulled to sleep by our media anesthesiologists in the era of relative peace, prosperity and stability.

None of us can imagine what it is like to live with those memories, those uncertainties, and the abject feeling of not having been able to save your family. Nothing replaces that kind of severed and truncated experience of loss.

James M. Glass. Jewish Resistance During the Holocaust:
Moral Uses of Violence and Will
.
Palgrave Macmillan, Hampshire UK 2004. p. 5

But nothing has changed and everything has changed. Anti-Semitism has once again emerged to a psychotic level and spreading its toxic waste throughout the western world. For Christians (as Michael Horowitz pointed out), they represent the number one human rights issue of the late 20th and early 21st century.(6) But you wouldn’t know that to listen to the scribes of the state religion of Secular Humanism. And the auto-genocidal (read: “suicidal”) West accelerates drunkenly toward the Great [historical] Rift.

The opening quote of this piece speaks of the Nazi program of using rational, intelligent, cultured, pragmatic Jews to administer and control the ghettos. It was masterful. They were men inured in the concepts of science, administration, art, technology, rationalism, realism, progress and the decency of the common man. They were Humanists. The Nazis made them Chiefs of Police or chairs of the Jewish Councils. They were men who often worked day and night to find ways to negotiate with the Nazis to save their people, keep the ghettos fed and to manage the slave-force required by them. They were also responsible for arranging the selection and recruitment of large numbers of Jews for transport on the trains to receive ‘food and work’. That is NOT where they were going. They believed in social self-interest. They believed the Germans were rational and incapable of the atrocities they were being accused of. They were wrong.

Thus their realism and rationalism was used against them and served only to assist in the control, oppression, neutralization and ultimate extermination of the Jewish people.

Bielski Partisans

The partisans knew what was happening and at risk to their lives, entered the ghettos to convince the Judenrat (7) that the Nazi programs were based on a plan to exterminate them, not to just re-locate them or use them for labour in the war effort.

It is no different today. Those in the Jewish community (such as Arutz Cheva 7)(8) and its hosts and guests (like David Bedein, Jay Shapiro, previously Tovia Singer) warn the Israeli Jews and the Diaspora as to what is planned for them. They are labeled ‘right-wing’ and ‘fanatics’ and ‘extremists’ and the warnings go unheeded by a population weary of fighting. But there are those in the conservative think-tanks who bother to do the research, acquire and read the Hamas and Fatah Covenants and the European-funded Palestinian textbooks to see what their enemies have in store for them and uncover the hate-mongering that is the Palestinian education system.(9)

They confront the ‘realists’ in the Israeli left who would disarm and appease and give away land-for-peace. . .who say. . . “that’s not possible. . . they (Fatah and Hamas) don’t really mean it, it is just a bargaining position. . . its really all our fault because we are seen as an occupying force. . . “

In so many ways it seems a perfect parallel with the partisans who were warning the Judenrat of the dimensions of the Holocaust and facing the ghetto Jews with a very difficult option: die in the ghetto, in the camps (virtually inevitable) or risk dying while fighting in the forests as free people.

With the Unholy Alliance propaganda-machine’s demonization, de-legitimization and imposition of double-standards upon the Jewish state (all established pre-cursors to genocide) Jews are once again faced with the same dilemma.

The Jewish Heart

Posted: September 8, 2011 in holocaust, Israel

TO AND FROM THE JEWISH HEART

What is a Jew ? This question is not at all so odd as it seems. Let us see what kind of peculiar creature the Jew is, which all the rulers and all the nations have together and separately abused and molested, oppressed and persecuted,trampled and butchered, burned and hanged – and in spite of all this is yet alive!
What is a Jew, who has never allowed himself to be led astray by all the earthly possessions which his oppressors and persecutors constantly offered him in order that he should change his faith and forsake his own Jewish religion ?
The Jew is that sacred being who has brought down from heaven the everlasting fire, and has illuminated with it the entire world. He is the religious source, spring, and fountain out of which all the rest of peoples have drawn their beliefs and their religions. The Jew is the pioneer of liberty.

. . . The Jew is the emblem of eternity. He whom neither slaughter nor torture of thousands of years could destroy, he whom neither fire nor sword nor inquisition was able to wipe off the face of the earth, he who was the first to produce the oracles of God, he who has been for so long the guardian of prophecy, and who transmitted it to the rest of the world – such a nation cannot be destroyed. The Jew is everlasting as is eternity itself.

The Six Days of Yad Mordechai
[1948 Israel War of Liberation]

“This book is about a struggle. A handful of people who tilled the soil stood against great odds and by their resistance pinned down a brigade-size force and thus took the brunt of battle from other villages.”

“. . . Knowingly and with the force of their conviction, the people of Yad Mordechai prepared for an unequal struggle and with all the odds against them. For six days the resistance of the few continued, day in and day out, until at the end they felt that they could not continue in their village. Therefore, carrying their wounded, they withdrew to another settlement in order to seek reinforcements to retake the ground they had lost. . .” (p.5)

“They felt a responsibility toward the fields which they had reclaimed from the desert and which they had fought so hard to defend. They could not say, “We have done enough, now let us live in peace.” (p.255)

“. . . Together with the seventeen men and one woman who had died in the battle and the retreat, this represented a loss to the kibbutz of nearly a third of it’s manpower.
. . . Today, Yad Mordechai is a tree-shaded community of nearly 500 people. At the foot of the hill where the fallen water tower lies tipped over on its side, the Bohinia tree puts out its pale blossoms, and across a wide expanse of lawn stands the grove of cypress trees. A rose garden, a little pool and benches set under flowing Oleanders, contribute to the sense of restfulness and peace. Except for the marks of bullets in some cement buildings, all signs of the battle’s destruction have been erased. “ (p. 256)

A survivor described to me ghetto life in Warsaw:
You have no idea what it was like, the filth, hunger, dead bodies all over the streets, thousands of children, many covered head to foot with lice, begging and wandering aimlessly. I remember one woman, walking down a street, stumbling over bodies, murmuring something like “Mendel, Mendel,” her arms stretched out in front of her, her eyes crazed; she had no shoes, her clothes hung off her body in tatters.’
