A vast amount of writings, movies and lectures has surfaced since the Nazi holocaust years on the extermination of the Jewish race in Europe beginning in the 1930’s. This unspeakable orgiastic celebration of death graphically showing the hatred and cruelty that a human being can do to another has no rational explanation. Normally, in order to preserve sanity, the human brain functions so as to erase sad and cruel nightmarish events, but in the case of the Holocaust, it is of the utmost importance to retell this unbelievable sadistic and inhumane time in history throughout the ages and should not be erased from human memory so that it won’t happen again. But will it?
The Holocaust was fermented by one of the most educated and sophisticated societies in the world. Nazis had humanitarian laws even for the protection of their animals. Germany was established as the “land of poets and philosophers,” and produced Richard Wagner, one of Hitler’s favorite composers. That such an advanced and cultural society could perpetrate the “Final Solution” of six million Jews, including 1.5 million children, in the most inhuman and systematic fashion baffles anyone’s comprehension. The Jews in Germany prior to the Holocaust successfully assimilated into the socio-political and cultural mainstream and many were totally secular considering themselves simply as Germans. In fact, they called Berlin their New Jerusalem. Yet, no matter how much the Jews tried to integrate into German society, they were still considered as Jews “in disguise.” For Hitler, the “Final Solution” was even more important than winning the war. Even in his last moments of his life in April, 1945, his obsessive hatred towards Jews were reflected in his final words “Above all, I charge the leaders of the nation and those under them to scrupulous observance of the laws of race and to the merciless opposition to the universal poisoner of all peoples, international Jewry.”
Back to the 21st century, the Jewish people continue to be abhorred and their every move is scrutinized by the world community. The new Hitler, Ahmadinejad of Iran, threatens to create another Jewish genocide. The hatred of Jewish nationalism is so intense that many Arab leaders have embraced Nazi anti-semitism and are bringing back the old caricature labels of Jews drinking blood of non-Jews and of bringing ills to the world. And the Western world’s weak concept of appeasing the Islamists by pressuring the Government of Israel to commit suicide is gaining full steam. Holocaust deniers abound, and the world is bonding together to concoct the demise of the Jewish state through the carving of another Muslim terrorist entity in the heart of Israel.
Jew hatred throughout centuries is the price Jews pay for their position of bringing the knowledge and the belief in one God to the world. The very word “Jew” continues to provoke fervor unlike any other religion or race in the world. To counter this continued hatred, the creation and continued existence of the State of Israel is a miracle of the 20th century, has astonishingly been victorious against several Arab countries bent on its destruction, and has one of the strongest armies in the world. Moreover, the Jewish prophets’ prediction over 3,000 years ago of bringing all Jewry back to the Holy Land is actually happening and the search for the lost 10 tribes of Israel continues, will eventually be discovered and will return to the House of Israel. The defenseless and naïve Jews of the Holocaust years have been finally replaced by a strong and alert Israel committed to combat the forces of evil hovering over them and to ensure that what happened 65 years ago in Europe will never occur again.
