Seemingly they have been very successful : We are all properly ' Holocausted '. We accept the suffering of the Jewish people -- and we have even managed to draw a universal message from it all. [Ron: See my above comments.].
We do accept that a real Shoah is taking place in front of our eyes in Palestine, where the Jewish state locks millions of Palestinians behind bars: it starves them, it stops medical supplies, food, cement, and educational materials from getting in. But it does not stop there -- when the Jewish state feels like it, it also kills Palestinians indiscriminately. It either blitzes them with white phosphorous , or sends in its tank battalions to drive over Gaza.
In preparation for Holocaust Memorial Day (1), London Zionist mouthpiece The Jewish Chronicle is very disturbed by a UK-based pro Palestinian web site named shoah.org.uk. The site is obviously dedicated to the Palestinian Holocaust.
The Jewish paper insists that the Shoah -- like Israel -- is a ‘Jews only club’. They do not want to 'let anyone else in'.
Karen Pollock, chief executive of the Holocaust Educational Trust told the Jewish paper, "Using the word 'Shoah' in this context is done with the sole intention of causing offence to Holocaust survivors, their families and the wider Jewish community and shows the greatest possible disrespect to the tragedy of the Holocaust." [Ron: Typical Jewish (NOT Zionist) bullshit. See my above comments.]
I would fiercely argue that Pollock is wrong. Using the word 'Shoah' in this very context is there to awaken the world, the Jews, and holocaust victims in particular, to the fact that the biggest current perpetrator of crimes against humanity -- is actually the Jewish state. [Ron: No! Using the word 'Shoah' at all, first and foremost reinforces the LIE which that word represents! And Atzmon and almost all other "liberal" Jews regularly indulge in this same sly misrepresentation technique. While ostensibly railing against Israeli actions in Palestine they covertly reinforce the Holocaust LIE again and again. This is not surprising given that the special power and status of ALL Jews depends upon the rest of humanity not waking up to the truth about the HoloHoax. Once seven billion gentiles realise they have been "had" by the Jews with their 'Shoah' and other lies, Jew dreams of world domination will be gone forever.]
Mark Gardner, of the Community Security Trust, said: "This website is yet another sickening example of how the Holocaust is perverted by anti-Zionists in order to attack Israel and Zionism." [Ron: Spare me! These fecken Jews never give up! How could anyone "pervert" the Holocaust LIE any more than the perversion which that LIE constitutes in itself?! AND Atzmon repeats this garbage!].
Mark Gardner is almost correct; [Ron: I rest my case against Gilad Aztmon.] anti Zionists do indeed use the Shoah as a means of mirroring. And it is now an accepted fact that the Palestinians are the last victims of Hitler.[Ron: Has Aztmon no shame? Hitler and his government protected the Jews and they did their best to arrange for Jews to be resettled in Madascar or Palestine.] It is also becoming accepted that the Israelis are the Nazis of our time [Ron: This is just a further (totally gratituous in the circumstances) slur on the German nation. WHY do Aztmon and his ilk inevitably slur and defame the Gerrman nation when ostensibly discussing the actions of Jews in Palestine 65 years after WWII? What possible relevance can the German government in WWII have to do with the slow motion genocide of Palestinians being carried out by Jews today?]. And tragically enough, the crimes in Palestine carried out by the Jewish state are also being committed in the name of the Jewish people [Ron: Don't these Jews ever ease up? Are we supposed to FEEL that the Jewish people are somehow VICTIMS of the "crimes" of THEIR Jewish state? WHO funds and carries out Israeli attacks on Palestinians and WHO defends those war crimes and crimes against humanity in the UN, the US and the global media etc?!]. As if this is not enough, it is Jewish pilots who drop white phosphorus from planes which are decorated with Jewish symbols. [Ron: Sooo?]
These facts are disturbing and demand the immediate attention of world Jewry. [Ron: Really? "Disturbing"?! Is that all? And why only now? This has been occurring for over 60 years.]
Jon Benjamin, chief executive of the Board of Deputies ( another morbid institute that claims to represent British Jews ) told the Jewish Chronicle that "even without delving into what is clearly a one-sided and skewed narrative, by virtue of its title, this website is extremely provocative and any trivialisation of the Holocaust in which over six million Jewish men, women, and children were systematically murdered is completely abhorrent." [Ron: Again the LIE. Only now its "over six million Jewish men, women, and children were systematically murdered". If Gilad Atzmon wants to endlessly repeat this ridiculous BLOOD LIBEL he ought to at least try to provide some PROOF for it.]
Benjamin is probably too lame [?!?] to grasp that what we see here is the total opposite -- We are actually witnessing an acceptance of an astute [?!?] universalising of the holocaust as carrying a humanist message for all of us. We can see a deeper understanding of the true moral meaning of that historical event. [Ron: "Non-event"! If you thought that Atzmon was not a purveyor of Jewish lies here is your proof that he IS.].
Surely we need to stand up against all forms of ethno-centric homicidal policies. [Ron: Judaism is a religious ideology and hence Jews are NOT a race. Note again, the sly implication that Jews are perennial VICTIMS who were allegedly subjected to 'ethno-centric homicidal policies' although Judaism is a religious ideology and there's no evidence given of alleged anti-Jewish homicidal policies. Moreover, THIS discussion is ostensibly about Jewish atrocities against Palestinian Semites TODAY.] And it seems clear that Israel is no different from Nazi Germany [?!?] in that regard. In fact Israel is far worse, because Israel acts under the guise of being a democracy, and its merciless policies are a reflection of the majority Israeli population's yearning to live in a 'Jews only' state.
However, a few questions are still left open -- Why exactly do the aforementioned Jews from the Jewish Chronicle and the Board of Deputies want to maintain the notion and reality of historical suffering as being exclusively Jewish property? Why don’t they want anyone else to use the word 'Shoah'? Why do they demand a total control over the usage of words and applications of meanings ?
Can you imagine a Ukrainian protesting against the word 'famine' being applied to the situation in Ethiopia?
I really wonder why so many Jews insist on grounding their identity politics on suffering and being hated by others?
For clearly, one must admit that being loathed is not exactly something to brag about.
I am bewildered. [Ron: Bewildered or not Gilad Atzmon is a subtle purveyor of Jewish lies and the horrendous 'Shoah' BLOOD LIBEL by Jews made against the German nation.]
(1) It is interesting to read the definition of the Holocaust Memorial Day on the official HMD's site:
"HMD is about remembering the victims and those whose lives have been changed beyond recognition of the Holocaust, Nazi persecution and subsequent genocides in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and the ongoing atrocities today in Darfur."
Basically everywhere except in Palestine.
