I Am A Child Survivor of the Holocaust - I can no longer suppress my rage
The American Thinker ^ | April 18, 2012 | Malka

Posted on 04/18/2012 5:12:34 AM PDT by Cincinatus' Wife

I am a child survivor, and went through the destruction of a defenseless people by an enemy called Nazism.

Now, the blood of Israel flows in its streets. A second wave of Nazism breaks over us. And I hear phrases of blame like "cycles of violence," "ending the occupation," as if something we were doing, rather than our very existence were responsible for attacks against us.

I hear lies, distortions, self-serving versions of history. Occupation? Years ago when there was no occupation, what did they do? They murdered our athletes at the Olympics; they hijacked planes; they pushed a man in a wheelchair off a ship into the sea. What excuse will they use when there is no occupation again?

As a survivor of the Holocaust, I can no longer suppress my rage. I must express this rage without any restraint. Then I can go in peace.

The form that my rage takes is a question.

What would have happened had the Jewish people, as of V-E Day, behaved like the Palestinians?

The answer is bitterly obvious.

At the end of World War II, in response to the murder of 6 million of our people, rabbis and Jewish leaders could have declared their own holy war of terror. A Jewish Hezb'allah or Hamas could have raised money through innocuous seeming charities to pay for murder. They could have targeted Germans and Poles, Hungarians and Italians,all of those whose sins of commission and omission permitted us to be murdered.

They could have targeted populations in all the other nations who attended the Evian Conference. There, in 1938, the international community joined together to assure the Nazis that no nation had any interest in intervening to protect individual Jews in Europe, and that the international community would do nothing to rescue, or...........

Also: the ‘Palestinians’ haven’t suffered through anything remotely resembling the holocaust.

It’s a very good piece.

I wish I could have posted it all (it isn’t long but it states the simple, profound truth).

Yeah, well, I love ya my Jewish brothah but a lot of this could've been avoided if your fellow Jews hadn't spent so much time, effort and money getting politicians who despise you elected to office over the last 5 decades or so.

It's not too late to change that. It's close to being too late, but it's not too late.

It would be gratifying to know that at least the worst of the Nazi jackals were hunted down and killed. Yes, tens of thousands of them were put on trial and the rest would spend the remainder of their worthless lives looking over their shoulders, but still....

Why do many Jews support Obama? Liberalism in general if not outrite Communism?

Jesus is still weeping over Jerusalem.

(Actually they believed the lie that Soviet Russia freed them from the concentration camps..........the Germans got the killing technology from the Soviets)

Heck, the worst thing to happen to the Palestinians is their permanent refugee status. That is a product of policies of the surrounding Arab nations which are not willing to allow them citizenship so they can remain a propaganda tool.

Just like the race pimps in the United States who will constantly carp about racism because once racism is gone, there goes their gravy train.

It’s the unfortunate Kibutz politics. Liberals are hostage of ideas or aspects of the legacy of communism.

It’s hard to get to, but if you are interested in Jewish culture, go to mark 53 minutes. It is a great song of the Jewish theatre Dos Pintele Yud. I found it just the other day and the words inspired me.

“Little Jew, that spark is your crown - everyone bathed in your blood”

I’d like to feel sympathy, but I’m not even sure the writer is who he/she claims. In what concentration camp did the writer survive? In what attic did the writer hide. From where in Europe did the writere originate? There are no details. We’re merely told that the writer survived the Holocaust, as if it were some monolithic event, rather than a particular individual experience. I’ve known at least one faker before, and my suspicions are up. Furthermore, the arguments made are too unfactual and illogical to even follow in the excerpt posted. During the Munich massacre and the Achilles Lauro hijacking, there was indeed an “occupation”. It started in 1967, predating all the events cited in the article. I consider it a liberation of lands stolen by the Muftists and Jordan in 1933-6 and 1948, and not an “occupation,” but that’s beside the point. I strongly suspect that this “survivor” is an imposter, making straw man arguments for a left winger or Pali sympathizer to later knock down. The essential point (when there is no longer an occupation, what will their excuse be then?) could have been made better by simply getting the facts straight, which the writer conspicuously failed to do.

Note to author:

Time and time again the Jewish community supports politicians who support the anti Israel agenda. Frankly, I'm getting tired of stories that are seemingly directed at me, as if I can do something about the self destructive path Jewish Americans seem to have chosen. By all appearances they are still supporters of Obama.

Just read the whole thing. My first impression has been reenforced. This is all straw man argument. I can see how the leftos would tear this apart, and I believe it’s a setup for just that sort of treatment.

I work with several Jewish colleagues. One is a strong conservative. One (he's 65) has switched from being a lifelong staunch Democrat to being a raging right winger. The rest are Obama love slaves.

Those love slaves and their ilk will bring about the destruction of Israel. It is past the tipping point IMHO. Not saying the Israelis won't take a bunch of their enemies with them. But their neighbors have turned from a bunch of rock throwers to battle hardened, well equipped, martyrs.

In spite of it all, we’ll be left standing when the smoke clears. 3,500 years. Egypt, Babylon, Persia, Greece, Rome, Arabia, pogroms and crusades, nazis, muftists, communists, PLO, Hamas, all wanted to obliterate us at one time or another. Some came closer than others. All except the most recent wishful thinkers are gone. We’re still here, because G-d wills it. The latest attempts will fail as well.

After much effort I found these lyrics:

In every land, in every place
The Jew hears only one thing
You are a Jew, go away.
You are an outsider

The Jew wanders, doesn’t get tired.
The spark of Jewishness is in his heart.
He laughs at his enemies
When God is with him,
Who can do him harm?

Many time little Israel’s spirit is broken
He bends before the slightest wind
But the strongest storm cannot uproot
The little, beautiful spark

The spark of Jewishness is very dear
Honor and pride
It gives to you.
Value, respect, and guard it.

Little Jew, that spark is your crown.
You have suffered much for it,
They wore out your limbs
Tortured your brothers,
Everyone bathed in your blood
There are endless lies against that spark
But it is always courageous
The wise Jew laughs at his enemies.
