George Santayana: “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” and today we hear prominent Muslims such as the President of Iran Mahmoud Ahmadinejad denying the Holocaust ever happened.
As in the rise of Nazi Germany under Hitler in 1930, the world witnessed the most horrific hate imaginable as woman, children and man lined up to be gases and thrown into ditches, why.. because there were Jewish.
Is Europe whom professed to never see such acts on their continent again, be going toward the same path of hatred? The answer is an astounding Yes, under the guise of political correctness European are silent while the Muslims minority spews hatred all to similar to Nazis from and era that should never be repeated. All to soon and sadly all too tolerated and brushed under the rug once again.
There was a TimesOnline report out recently that nearly 37 per cent of the Muslims in Britain believe that the Jewish community in Britain is a legitimate target “as part of the ongoing struggle for justice in the Middle East”.
Moreover, only about half think that the state of Israel has the right to exist. One in six of all Muslims questioned thinks suicide bombings on civilians can sometimes be justified in Israel, though many fewer (7 per cent) say the same about Britain. I wonder how many Israelis believe that a Palestinian nation has no right to exist, or that Muslims in general are legitimate targets?
In Sweden Judith Popinski moved to Malmo in the South of Sweden after her rescue from a Nazi concentration camp,
She raised a family in the city of Malmo, and for the next six decades lived happily in her adopted homeland – until last year.
Jewish cemeteries were repeatedly desecrated in Malmo, Jewish worshipers were abused on their way home from prayer, and “Hitler” was mockingly chanted in the streets by Islamic masked men.
“I never thought I would see this hatred again in my lifetime, not in Sweden anyway,” Mrs Popinski said.
“This new hatred comes from Muslim immigrants. The Jewish people are afraid now.”, “Jews came to Sweden to get away from persecution, and now they find it is no longer a safe haven,” said Rabbi Shneur Kesselman.
Mr Eilenberg said he and his wife considered moving to Stockholm where Jews feel safer than in Malmo. “But we decided not to because in five years time I think it will be just as bad there,” he said.
“This is happening all over Europe. I have cousins who are leaving their homes in Amsterdam and France for the same reason as me.”
