Today world leaders convened to commemorate the 75th Anniversary of the Liberation of Auschwitz at the Yad Vashem Holocaust museum in Jerusalem.
Since the end of World War II, what have world leaders learned and done to prevent another Holocaust? Seventy-five years after the liberation we still see genocide, mass killings and human rights abuses. World leaders meet and talk. There will often be a moment of silence to remember and declare “Never Again.” There always are lots of photo ops and networking. Meeting over and everyone heads for home.
Except surrounding today’s event many of the leaders are adding a visit to Ramallah for a visit with Abu Mazzen who wants to wipe Israel off the map.
What is wrong with this picture?
We know that swift and decisive action during World War II that might have put a stop to the Nazi killing machine was not taken. At the height of the killing, the Allied leaders had first person witness accounts of what was happening and Germany’s plan for the “Final Solution” were published but downplayed by the media.
When it comes to Israel, seventy-five years later we still see disbelief, excuses and lies, along with double standards, demonization and delegitimization.
That Israel is the legal, historical and biblical homeland of the Jewish people is a fact.
Accepting the truth about Israel is still a problem for too many.
The truth about Israel is downplayed, smeared and twisted by the enemies who refuse to acknowledge the truth.
“Never Again” will Jews be dependent on anyone for anything.
“Never Again” will Israel be unable to DEFEND ITSELF.
“Never Again” will Israel fail to REMAIN A SOVEREIGN STATE.
