There are times in history when people stood up and made the difference, good, or bad. The world is at this tipping point, ‘for better or for worse’, as the wedded couple vows to each other, with a twinkle of unlimited love in their eye.
Nowadays, the world is fast turning back to dark and miserable pages in history. Today, we see atrocities committed by man against man everywhere.
Today, we face evil again, the evil of Islam.
It is time to look back at ancient and not so old history,
It is time to reopen the archives, not ignore them,
It is time to clean up the dust from thousands of horrific pictures which document the unforgivable atrocities of the last World War, WWII, as they are likely to happen again.
It is time to speak up; speak up loud.
It is time to walk on the path of history, in the path of the last march of the Jews to their death. Because this type march is taking place in Africa and in the Middle East and the confused world is silent, or incapable of acting right.
It is time to tell the world, and repeat it, again and again, about repulsive crimes against the Jewish people the Moslems want to repeat. And when they finish with the Saturday people, the Jews, they will start with the Sunday people, the Christians. And as reality attests, the Moslems already begun this process; they got rid of the Jews and the Christians in their midst, in their lands.
The problem in the world today is not Israel or the Jews, rather it is Islam that is scapegoating the Jews as the world has done just that for two millenniums.
But the Jewish people are eternal and the most ancient people on earth. All those who attempted to slash the Jewish people were the ones who were slashed from the paged of history. They have vanished while the Jewish people stand and thrive!
One reason is that Jews have the ability not to forget and to tell the story of their existence, a story of dark clouds, suffering and agony , but also of resilience, determination, perseverance, optimism and above all, the zest for freedom.
The power of the Jewish people and the state of Israel is to fight every day for every Jewish soul all over the world.
The world is in a deja vu mode!
In Europe, for centuries, Jews were hunted and killed. In the 1200’s Jews were expelled from England, in the 1400’s they were expelled from Spain. Once they thrived in a country and built a strong community they were told to leave, they were expelled. During WWII Hitler attempted to exterminate the entire European Jewry and he was almost successful.
Finally, in 1948, when the modern state of Israel was born, Jews were permitted to return back to their ancestral Homeland, a safe place that belongs to them.
But now, in the 21st century, Jews are being scapegoated and persecuted again; in Venezuela, under the auspices of the military police, Jews are no longer safe and so is in many other countries. In the Netherland, the Former European Union Commissioner Dutch politician, Frits Bolkenstein, said that Jews have no future in the Netherlands because young Moslems, of Moroccan origin, are anti-Semites; he recommended that the Jews emigrate to the US or Israel. Thus, he insinuated that the Netherlands should become Judenrein-Judenfrei-cleaned and free of Jews.
Europe is infested with anti-Semites again.
Those who still chose to have their heads in the sand and think there is no problem, must remember the famous saying attributed to Pastor Martin Niemoller: “First they came for the Communists, and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a communist, then they came for the trade unionists, and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a trade unionist. Then they came for the Jews, and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a Jew. Then they came for me and there was no one left to speak out for me.”
It always starts with the Jews but it does not end there…
Only when we remember the past we can fulfill the mission of present time and prevail in the future. Therefore, if one believes in human dignity, that people were born equal, and that one should do his or her utmost to prevent another Holocaust, another unfathomable atrocity, the nations of the world need to stand up.
Stand up with Israel and the Jews against evil. It is the responsibility of the nations of the world to prevent this kind of horror again, a responsibility to prevent a future Hitlers and Ahmadinejads from destroying other people and other nations.
Silence is not an option again. Because the world should listen, learn and act to make sure that this crime will never happen again, neither to the Jewish people, nor to any other nation.
Wake up and get involved to do whatever possible to fight against the evil of our time.
