Holocaust Memorial Day backfires
The UK Jewish lobby has been thrown into panic as Holocaust Memorial Day boomerangs. In fact, the memorial day has turned the floodlights on to the deeply problematic inclinations that are sadly inherent in Jewish political culture and collectivism.
Last weekend it became clear that, because of the crimes that are committed by the Jewish state in the name of the Jewish people, many Britons are finding it difficult to genuinely empathize with Jewish suffering. If anything, it is the other way around: more and more people expect the Jews and their state to become more empathic to the suffering of others.
The day before Holocaust Memorial Day, Member of Parliament David Ward expressed his dismay at the lack of Jewish empathy. He wrote on his blog:
“I am saddened that the Jews, who suffered unbelievable levels of persecution during the Holocaust, could within a few years of liberation from the death camps be inflicting atrocities on Palestinians in the new State of Israel and continue to do so on a daily basis in the West Bank and Gaza.”

Mr Ward had to issue an immediate apology following relentless pressure mounted by the “non existent” Jewish lobby. In essence, he and the British public were privileged to examine the “imaginary” lobby performing one of its power pirouettes, bringing an elected British politician on his knees.
On Holocaust Memorial Day, just as Britain was preparing itself to commemorate the shoa, another shred of truth made it into the Sunday Times: a cartoon by Gerald Scarfe depicting Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu building a brick wall containing the blood and limbs of Palestinians.
The notorious ultra-Zionist Board of Deputies of British Jews was outraged. It insisted that the cartoon was “shockingly reminiscent of the blood libel imagery more usually found in parts of the virulently anti-Semitic Arab press”.
Obviously, it isn’t. The cartoon doesn’t refer to “the Jews” or “the Jew”. It actually points at a specific brutal person who happens to be a war criminal as well as the Israeli prime minister. Moreover, the cartoon depicts the true reality of the Palestinians. I guess that the Board of Deputies must be convinced that Israel and its politicians are beyond criticism – exactly what you would expect from a Jewish supremacist organization.

As if this wasn’t enough, also on the Holocaust Memorial Day, the Independent newspaper reported that the Jewish state gave birth control injections to Ethiopian Jews without their consent. Israel isn’t just racist towards the goyim [gentiles]; it is obviously white supremacist to the bone and discriminatory towards black Jews as well. In the context of the Holocaust Memorial Day, the verdict is clear: the Israelis learned something in Auschwitz, but apparently not the most obvious ethical lesson.
I guess that those British Jews who came to their senses probably realized by now that imposing a Holocaust Memorial Day on the British people was a grave mistake. However, I am delighted with this commemoration day. It is indeed a very special opportunity we should all cherish. Every year we will use this commemoration to remind Israel and its lobby what we think of the Jewish state, its politics and its repellent operators in our midst.
