On Holocaust Remembrance Day: Calls For A New Holocaust
The enemies of Israel and the Jewish people picked Holocaust Remembrance Day (Yom HaShoah) to call for a new Holocaust, one that would destroy Israel.
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahemdinejad, renewing his calls for Israel to be destroyed, said:
We say that this fake regime cannot not logically continue to live
Open the doors [of Europe] and let the Jews go back to their own countries
conveniently ignoring the fact that a majority of Israel's Jewish population didn't come from Europe and has no ties to that continent. He also threatened to pull out of the IAEA and the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty:
What has more than 30 years of membership in the agency given us? Working in the framework of the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty and the agency is our concrete policy, (but) if we see that they are violating our rights, or they don't want to accept (our rights), well, we will reconsider.
Meanwhile, in New York City, protesting Islamists promised a new nuclear Holocaust for Israel, chanting in Arabic:
Zionists, Zionists You will pay! The Wrath of Allah is on its way! Israeli Zionists You shall pay! The Wrath of Allah is on its way! The mushroom cloud is on its way! The real Holocaust is on its way! Israel won't last long Indeed, Allah will repeat the Holocaust right on the soil of Israel Another mushroom cloud, right in the midst of Israel!
Any guess who they think might deliver this Holocaust?
Outgoing Israeli Defense Minister Shaul Mofaz warned:
Of all the threats we face, Iran is the biggest. The world must not wait. It must do everything necessary on a diplomatic level in order to stop its nuclear activity. Since Hitler we have not faced such a threat.
He is, of course, quite correct, but I fear too many in the world still don't care about Jews or Israel and are, in any case, ready to repeat the mistakes of Neville Chamberlain. Prime Minister Olmert summed up my feelings very well in his Yom HaShoah speech:
...appeasement, concessions and weakness amount to a recipe for holocaust. Anti-Semitism, tyranny, lust for murder and terrorism have not passed forever. Even today, they hang over the head of the free world like a sword of Damocles... Only a determined and firm moral stand, only willingness to fight for and protect liberty will guarantee the future of humanity.
Brave words, Mr. Prime Minister. Do you have the courage to act on them? I fear the rest of the world, including the United States, is poised to disappoint you and I and all others who care about Israel's future.
In response a number of bloggers have been quick to point out that Iran's president has conveniently ignored "the fact that a majority of Israel's Jewish population didn't come from Europe and has no ties to that continent".
Maybe Chana will be honored with her very own Iranian fatwa.
That should say linked, not liked. I don't think Iranians would like Chana very much. She keeps calling for military action against Iran as I do.
