Today we mark Holocaust Remembrance Day. We mourn the millions of Jewish men, women, and children who were brutally slaughtered by the nazis and their sympathizers. After Germany lost the war, most survivors who attempted to return to their former homes found that they were no longer welcome. Their former friends and neighbors had confiscated their property with no anticipation of ever having to give it back. Even more disturbingly, quite a few survivors were murdered by their countrymen whose anti-Semitism never faded. Israel was their only hope for a homeland where Jews can be Jewish without any fear. As Israel’s president Shimon Peres stated “There is no substitute for a homeland of our own.”
Today Israel and Jews worldwide face a new enemy that is trying to wipe us off the face of the Earth. Not only did the Islamic world collaborate with the Nazis in WWII, today’s Islamic extremists have steadily been working towards eliminating Israel and exterminating all Jews in the world. Ever since becoming a country in 1948 Israel could count on the US as an unwavering ally. Since Obama got elected, however, that has drastically changed. Who of us still hear the call of the Holocaust dead? Instead of standing with Israel, our strongest ally and only true democracy in the Middle East, this president and his hand chosen cabinet have aligned themselves with Israel’s enemies.
President Obama turned his back on the peaceful protesters in Iran, thus giving Mahmoud Ahmedinejad (who has openly referred to Israel as a “stinking corpse” and repeatedly called for its annihilation) the power to impose his brutal tactics to crush the protesters and tighten the reigns on his rule of terror. Soon after, he sided with the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, an entity of Hamas whose primary mission is wiping Israel off the map, and called for the Egyptian president and Israel’s longest standing ally in the Middle East Hosni Mubarak to step down and hand the country over to the extremists. Reform could have come to Egypt and Mubarak through political pressure but that was not really this administration’s goal. Now the new government of Egypt is calling for the nullification of the peace treaty and starting a war with Israel.
To say that Israel is on a precipice is a gross understatement. With Islamic migration spreading across the world and Sharia Law insinuating its way throughout Europe, and now making footholds in America, there is a dreaded potential for the long-sought 12th Imam being called to appear by the Islamic world. This so-called Caliphate will hinge on the destruction of Israel and America. It is no fantasy. It is no dream. It is a nightmare that began in great measure during the Holocaust. It went underground. Now it is too big to hide. Some leaders abet it, like Obama. Some are too blind to see it. Sadly, 80% of American Jews voted for Obama and most continue to express their support.
For Jews to aid in their own destruction feels reminiscent of European Jewish leaders who tried to make friends with the nazis thinking that their communities would be spared. Aligning with the American Left and Obama is suicide as was the futile and insane attempts of our ancestors to pacify Nazis. Continue supporting the American Leftists collaborating with Israel’s (and America’s) enemies at your peril, Jewish brothers and sisters! Or choose a path closer to the intellect manifest in our heritage, and seek your friends in America’s politically conservative Gentile majority. They await you with open arms and offer comfort and faith on this day of Holocaust Remembrance.
