Haaretz: Our Holocaust Flak Jacket is almost over.


One of Israeli’s leading papers said that Israeli can no longer take the support of the US and Europe for granted. The paper says that the Holocaust gave Israel a free pass for the past 65 years, but as time goes on Israeli can not continue to expect the same treatment.

Currently Israeli has the largest, most powerful foreign lobby in Washington. However, the Jerusalem Post states that 80% of American Jews voted for Obama, the candidate least likely to help Israel. Most Israeli newspapers endorsed McCain. Meanwhile Haaretz blames Europe for the rise in attacks on Jews, yet deliberately conceals and distorts the fact that these attacks are committed by Muslim immigrants. Immigrants that were championed by Jewish organizations in Europe.

Haaretz…

The 6 million were the reason for the UN General Assembly’s partition resolution of November 1947. Were it not for them, the required majority would not have been reached. It was only the onerous guilt feelings of the nations of the world, who did nothing to stop the so-called Final Solution while it was being implemented, that tipped the scales. On November 30, 1947, Haaretz ran a special front-page editorial that said, “The nations of the world have resolved to redress the injustice of 2,000 years … the aspiration of a persecuted people, one that has known suffering and has undergone a Holocaust, is about to be realized.”

If it were not for these guilt feelings, the Czechoslovaks would not have shipped us weapons during the War of Independence, the Germans would not have stood by our side in all circumstances and situations, and the Americans would not have supplied us with money and warplanes year after year. So it is right to connect Holocaust Day with Memorial Day. They are both the basis for Independence Day.

But strengthening the IDF does not depend upon us alone. It depends on this country’s status, which in turn depends on the nations of the world and public opinion. Sixty-five years after the horrors of the Holocaust became clear, more and more voices in Europe say to Israel: No more. Guilt feelings as well have their limits. From now on we’ll treat you like a normal country. You will be judged by your deeds, for better or worse.

And indeed, the latest reports reveal that the number of anti-Semitic incidents rose sharply in 2009. This is a new kind of anti-Semitism that combines the ancient hatred with strong opposition to the occupation. In other words, time is working against us. Support for Israel and for bolstering the power of the IDF can no longer be taken for granted. The world’s guilt feelings are gradually becoming dulled, making it possible for the global criticism of the occupation of Palestinian territories to strengthen.

And because in the West it is public opinion that ultimately determines how governments act, we must reach an agreement that will get us out of those territories and make Israel a moral and just country once again.

This is because the Holocaust flak jacket won’t last forever. It is cracking as we watch, and soon it will no longer be able to protect us.

Blaming Muslim attacks on white Europeans.

The claim about “anti-Semitic incidents” is pure defamation against the Europeans. The vast majority of violent attacks and vandalism against Jews in Europe are committed by Semitic immigrants. Muslims from North Africa and the Middle East. The term “anti-Semitic” seems to be a deliberate attempt to confuse and distort the truth. The perpetrators are more Semitic than the victims in this case. In fact, Jewish organizations in Europe were at the forefront of promoting open borders and “multi-culturalism” in Europe.

The claim of “ancient hatred” is also pure defamation against the Europeans. The Muslims target Jews for vandalism and attacks in Europe as a way to feel like they are striking back for the Palestinians. It is not “ancient hatred.” It is something that only started with the Arab-Israeli war of 1948.

Historically, Jews had been thriving in Muslim nations for hundreds of years before 1948. Turkey was considered the main “safe haven” for Jews for over 450 years before 1948. In fact, one of the political parties in the Israeli Knesset is a Sephardi Jewish party that believes things were better in the Middle East before the Ashkenazi Jews moved in and established the nation of Israeli.
