Holocaust Survivors as Villains: The Self-Hatred of the Jewish Left


Pages: 1 2

The left-leaning Jewish daily Tablet found itself the target of an unexpected backlash last week after it published a shocking piece smearing Holocaust survivors as “villains masquerading as victims.” Commentary’s John Podhoretz called it “the most disgusting piece of anti-Semitism I think I’ve ever read outside of the arrant lunacy of schizophrenic letter writers.”

In a pop culture critique of the popular TV series Breaking Bad, called “Breaking Bad Karma” (with the eyebrow-raising subtitle, “How the cancer victim at the center of the AMC series justifies my skepticism of Holocaust survivors”), first-time Tablet contributor Anna Breslaw began with this distasteful personal confession. That section is worth quoting in its entirety, because every sentence is jaw-droppingly vile:

Since I was 12 I’ve had an unappealing, didactic distrust of people with the extreme will to live. My father’s parents were Holocaust survivors, and in grade school I received the de rigueur exposure to the horror – visiting geriatric men and women with numbers tattooed on their arms, completing assigned reading like The Diary of Anne Frank and Night. But the more information I received, the less sympathy the survivors elicited from me. Each time we clapped for the old Hungarian lady who spoke about Dachau, each time Elie Wiesel threw another anonymous anecdote of betrayal onto a page, I eyed it askance, thinking What did you do that you’re not talking about? I had the gut instinct that these were villains masquerading as victims who, solely by virtue of surviving (very likely by any means necessary), felt that they had earned the right to be heroes, their basic, animal self-interest dressed up with glorified phrases like “triumph of the human spirit.”

I wondered if anyone had alerted Hitler that in the event that the final solution didn’t pan out, only the handful of Jews who actually fulfilled the stereotype of the Judenscheisse (because every group has a few) would remain to carry on the Jewish race – conniving, indestructible, taking and taking.

First, a little background on Breslaw. Her previous writing experience ranged from recapping Real Housewives of New Jersey episodes for New York magazine, to contributing to a vapid sex-and-celebrity-gossip site called Jezebel (named after the Biblical idolater queen), to blogging about sex, love, and life for Glamour magazine online in short pieces with such self-parodic titles as “Is Your Dude More Into Legs, Butts, Or Boobs? Here’s What It Might Mean” and “What’s the Weirdest Thing You’d Trade for Sex?” So, an attempt at insightful pop culture commentary apparently took her out of her depth – and exposed her Jew-hatred.

Back in 2009 Breslaw thought dressing up as Anne Frank would make a killer Halloween costume. In a piece for a website called Heeb (a variation on an anti-Semitic slur), which describes itself with painfully self-conscious hipness as “a take-no-prisoners zine for the plugged-in and preached-out,” she explains,

I cut a Star of David out of a yellow cereal box, wrote “Juden” on it, taped it to a blazer and carried a Moleskine notebook around even though my mom didn’t want me to.

She notes that she felt an affinity for Anne Frank because, like the 15-year-old Jewish girl famous for the diary recounting her experiences hiding in Nazi-occupied Amsterdam, Breslaw too is “uncomfortable in small quarters.” Now that’s edgy humor! Anne Frank and her family were betrayed and she was shipped off to Bergen-Belsen where she narrowly escaped the gas chambers, only to die of typhus weeks before the camp’s liberation. So you can see how this would make for an hilarious Halloween gag.

    Such Jews as this are worse than non-Jews who support another Holocaust. Beneath contempt is perhaps the mos measured description I can find ot describe such Jews. Traitors to their own ethnicity, to civilised values, to society and the world, these would be equally appropriate.

    There will be a day of reckoning, and trash like this girl and her Goebles style publication will be on the wrong side.

    • SHmuel HaLevi

      Absolutely true. The unJews day of reckoning is barreling down on them. This time the capos will not be given any opportunity to do as their predecessors did in Europe.

        Another arrogant, stupid pseudo intellectual leftist moron….Ann Breslaw doesn't know it but she is disgusting beyond words and has no honor. Her shallow words and "hip" contempt for victims of the Holocaust reveals her as a pile of garbage. I urge her to read ALL BUT MY LIFE, by Gerda Weissman Klein…to get a notion of what actually transpired.. Then perhaps she will be shocked into regretting her words.

      • BS77

        I have a feeling this Breslaw is unattractive….she is bitter and confused about her life, I am certain. Her remarks show a complete disconnect from understanding recent history. She must be very shallow….very poorly educated. She has absolutely no grasp of the WW II era,

  • Larry

    She's not some much callous as mind numbingly stupid and willfully pig ignorant.

    As someone who was taught at school by a Bergen-Belsen miracle survivor (July 1940-May 1945 in Nazi hands) my personal opinion is that every body who comes into contact with her, every time, every day, should bitch slap her.

    Genesis 12:3 God says this:
    "I will bless those who bless you (Israel),
    and whoever curses you I will curse;
    and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you."

    ~The Bible declares that God determined to keep His chosen people separated to Himself (Exodus 33:16; Leviticus 20:26; etc.) because He would bring them back into their land in the last days (Jeremiah 30:10; 31:8-12; Ezekiel 36:24, 35-38; etc.) prior to Messiah’s second coming.

      There are those among the Jews who are not of God. John 8:44 "Ye are of your father the devil and the lusts of your father ye will do…….." And who was Jesus speaking to? Scribes and Pharisees, "holy" men. As it was, so it is. Rev. 2:9….they "claim" to be our brother Judah, but are of the synogogue of satan…..

      • oldtimer

        In other words, there were betrayers even among the leaders in Jesus' time, and there are betrayers now. Israel belongs to Israel, God gave it to them. And as not only Christians, but all the world should support Israel.

      • κατεργάζομαι

        Respectfully, oldtimer…….. The Second Chapter of Revelations is delivered to the "Seven Churches" –
        of Christ. – - – It does Not refer to Israel.

        The Seven Churches have a fourfold reference in eschatology.

        These messages by their very terms go beyond the assemblies mentioned. However that does not extend into Israel. Your post is unclear to me.

        Revelations 2:9 was directed to the Christian Church of Smyrna, as well as a "type" for a later historical period.

        It does not reference the Jews.

        • oldtimer

          Respectfully also, were there not 12 tribes of Israel, 10 of which were scattered, maybe I may not be as learned as you but I have always felt kinship with Israel because of this. If id did not refer to the Jews, than why does it say Judah?

          • oldtimer

            What is written is a warning that all who claim to be Jews are not, but in their hearts are fakes.Those referenced in the above article are not true Jews, and I hope that is how you feel also.

            Hello oldtimer! Where does Revelation Chapter Two, verse 9 mention Judah? I missed it.

            For reference: Parallel translations (20 of them) including the following do not mention Judah.

            New International Version (©1984)
            New Living Translation (©2007)
            English Standard Version (©2001)
            New American Standard Bible (©1995)
            King James Bible (Cambridge Ed.)
            International Standard Version (©2008)
            King James 2000 Bible (©2003)
            American Standard Version
            English Revised Version

            I am very familiar with John's Revelation Chapter 2 message to the Seven Churches. His message to Smyrna, in verse 9 was the church under persecution. It characterizes the church under persecution from A.D. c. 100 -316

            Maybe I did not understand your post.

            Re parallel Bibles; I even have one with 30 translations. BUT, what is fascinating is that ALL versions are essentially the same except for those aberrant sects and cults who devise and re-arrange words to fit their doctrinal screed. ~ take care.

        That prophecy and promise, so long awaited, was fulfilled in the rebirth of Israel in her Promised Land in 1948, nearly 1900 years after the final diaspora at the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 AD by the Roman armies of Titus.

        This restoration of a nation after 25 centuries is utterly astonishing, a phenomenon without parallel in the history of any other peoples and inexplicable by any natural means, much less by chance”

    The Arabs and Islamists remake history to serve their own interests, and their tales of woe and suffering are in reality intended to lull people into a state of pacifism to enable their eventual domination and subjugation of the world.

    That was the strategy Joseph Goebbels, Hitler's propaganda director, used in his war against the Jews of Europe and it worked.

    The Arabs may not be very original but they certainly have figured out how to seize upon a good idea and run with it! Comparing the plight of the Jews of Germany to that of the Arab-"Palestinians" was a stroke of genius. A very BIG Lie… but brilliant nevertheless!

    were subjected to the worst Holocaust in history."

  • ★FALCON★

    Self-hating Jews like this bitch are nothing new. Many were Nazi's collaborators, like George Soros / György Schwartz. Soros was asked about his time with the Nazi's and replied that he had no regrets and it was the best time of his life. He further said – if he didn't do it, someone else would.

    These haters need to be repudiated at every turn and shunned in the work place and in open society.

  • Phil

    What a tragic story…..as a half Jew, I can maybe shed some light, on this problem….my father is Jewish, and divorced my mother at around two years old, but as her only child she took me and moved back to New York, but because my father was wealthy, I became a source of her support.

    But, I recently figured out, that she probably hated my guts “sub- consciously” because of unresolved anti-semitic stereotypes…try, instead of being so critical of her; try to understand the pain she most be going through, and struggling with in a culture in America that has become in many ways anti-semitic; someone, like me I can cope with it, because I became a ultra liberal pacifist, way before the Muslim invasion, so I'm trained to deal with large social evils such as the wave of Muslim anti- semitism that has covered our nation in it's sewage.

    There is such a thing as the Stockholm syndrome.

      Sorry to hear that your have a bad experience related to human's sin (Rom 3:23). Guess that's the reason why you don't like Jews. But you need to forget your father for your own sake, otherwise your bitterness will not only affect you adversely but people around you. You can not devour a poison and expect the person you hate to die from it. Bring your sorrow to your God and your Father in Heaven will give you comfort and peace that your father in flesh can't.

          I would have changed my Jewish name; if I had thought no one loved me at all in my family.

    Identifying with Anne Frank is the latest chic –maybe not so latest — among the phonies This woman is beyond despicable. Just one correction, Mark Tapson, for the sake of accuracy: Anne Frank was sent to Auschwitz where she "barely escaped the gas chambers." She later died of typhus in Bergen Belsen.

  • Miriam

    "and in grade school I received the de rigueur exposure to the horror – visiting geriatric men and women with numbers tattooed on their arms, completing assigned reading like The Diary of Anne Frank and Night."

    My thought is: Did she receive any Jewish education? Did she learn Jewish history? Was she taught the Bible?
    I think not. I think all she knows about being Jewish is that she is a part of a people who suffered in the Holocaust and she wants out from that.. Without knowing the historical, religious, philosophical and economic context her small mind tried to make sense of the devastation caused to the lives of her relatives and came to the conclusion that they could not have survived if they had not been culpible in some way.

    It is very sad. Her parents probably thought they were doing well by her in her education. But in fact they cut her off from a four millenial history. She is Jewish In Name Only – as so many other of the Leftist Jews of her generation.

    And just as she was denied a knowledge of the background, all American children are being denied a knowledge of their country's history. From grade school to college the courses have been removed. And we are seeing the same kind of hatred for America and its way of life.

    To disparage the 'will to live' is to place oneself in the company of suicide bombers. It is diametrically opposed to a basic premise of Judaism.

    Moses said: I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your seed may live. He would not have had to make this statement if there were not others in his time who, because of religion or philosophy, chose a cult of death. It is this will to live, to prepare for the future, to invest in children and in ventures that is responsible for success in the endless struggle against entropy.

  • marios

    It is tragedy for G-d chosen people that Jewish establishment betrays them. Those Jewish traitors of their own people are not big numbers but they exist. On the other hand is any nation is perfect? Any nation has their own heroes and their own villains. For anti-Semites Jewish traitors are a great gift to justify their anti-Semitism.
    It is applicable to Muslims overall and to Palestinians mostly as they use Leftists Jews who betray their own Jewish people as very important weapon in ideological war against Israel, against Jews. But what you want from Leftists, communists, socialists (which are almost identical in meaning) ? They are Marxists who takes care about their own interests independent of their nationality, ethnicity, etc.

    This is not really about the Jews. It is about Anna Breslaw and her own psychopathology of self-hatred. Her unwarranted and undeserved vile attack on the innocent victims of the Hallocaust reveals a severely cold and unfeeling individual incapable of compassion or empathy. She is a Narsicist of the first order. Such hate-filled ramblings should not be treated as serious discourse. It should be identified for what it is — the psychopatholoy of a spiritually bankrupt individual.

    • Looking4Sanity

      Bingo. But the question remains. Why would an organization publish such garbage? It is their motivations that need scrutinizing.

  • Gizelle

    Breslaw is a sad example of what I call… the "walking dead"…they live, and walk about…without a beating heart. Remember as a small child my father showing me the pictures of the people that fell victim to Hitler's evil. Stacks of bodies…stacked as wood…someone's mother, father, daughter, son…someone's child…each a human being with a name. I wept at the horror. Hitler, himself, said "if you tell a big enough lie long enough, and tell it frequently enough…it will be believed." Is this Breslaw's intent…lie about the evil…to protect and cover its very existence? She is one of Satan's puppets. Some are used willingly by evil, as they are truly the "walking dead." And, Breslaw, is a perfect example of this as she lives out her life with the character of a deceiver, and a child…of the "father of all lies."

    I suggest anyone who hate the Jews/Israel (many times this boundary is really interchangeable) visits at least one Nazi Concentration Camp, including in Germany (many Germans, esp. from the hard Left are denying that such camps exist in Germany). I myself had visited the Sachsenhausen Nazi Concentration Camp not far from Berlin (English translation is everywhere in the camp), and was almost absolutely shocked by the stark real horrors of it all (despite having watched films such as Schindler’s List) – especially the Butchering rooms and the small ovens (thus Jewish victims were cut up to fit into the ovens). And then to meet Germans or anyone who try to deny such horror or erase such history from Germany – this should not be accepted! Israel and the Jews must fight to keep the Jewish Holocaust history alive, especially in German/European’s schools and Integration classes and texts for immigrants (especially from Jew-hating Islamic land), so that such barbarism never happen again! Especially many Left/Socialist and Muslim fanatics in Germany/Europe have joined up to aggressively demonise the Jews through demonising Israel!

    • kong.ming

      What happened to the Native Americans was not genocide. It was the result of "virgin land". The same thing happened to the Europeans by the Mongols with the black plague.

      There was no African genocide. There was the African slave trade, where the majority of slaves were captured due to the result of tribal war between Africans and brought into the Arab slave trade which has existed since prehistory and continues to modern day.

      What's ironic about your comment is you call for remembering all genocide, yet conveniently forget the leftist systematic mass murders like Ukraine, Cambodia, China, as well as the political murders in Cuba and modern Venezuela.

    This woman is a genius. Kudos to Mr. Tapson, who through his ceaseless misogyny for Israel, advertises, albeit negatively, another good critical thinker. Ms. Breslaw is so right. Stealing the boots off a man and eating his bones while lying about your cellmates and later using this to guilt your offspring for cheaper Cheerios is not "triumph of the spirit," it is rank human mammalian animal atavism and self-interested savagery. Otherwise, FPM would be fibbing when they vilify George Soros.

    Carl Sagan would be proud to see Elie Wiesel reduced to the Far Side cartoon that he is, a man who like feeder crickets at the pet store, nibbles the limbs of his fellows in a musky darkened tank, reliving his memory with more pathos and exaggeration each time, embroidering nothingness and fiddling sad songs with his back. Cheers to Ms. Breslaw for calling foul on all of that survivor smut peddling.

      When even Nakba tells this idiot to give it a rest, you have to know how bad his Jew-baiting has become.

    • Touchstone

      So what I take from your post is that the Jews you hate the most are the ones who suffered terrible atrocities and lived to tell about it. Nice. (In another life you must have been a camp guard.) I actually admire Elie Wiesel that much more now, knowing how much he drives you mad. I hope FPM features more articles about him and other survivors.

      You've set a very, very low bar for "genius" (no wonder you believe you're going to accomplish great things!). What you call "genius" is what Tapson rightly calls "execrable musings" (an apt description of your own ramblings). A hateful creature speculates that the people who survived the camps are the worst among us (those who "actually fulfilled the stereotype"), and like a trained seal you reflexively applaud this unscientific, unprovable, addle-brained hypothesis and deem it the work of "genius". (sigh) Genius has never meant so little.

      You never stop to think that her premise might be flawed. You blindly accept her speculations because they condemn the same people you like to slander. You just can't resist the temptation to jump on the Wiesel-bashing bandwagon. You don't mind writing thousands and thousands of words deconstructing the Israeli request for a minute of silence at the Olympics, but Breslaw's sewage you swallow without hesitation. And you never for a moment think of condemning the Nazi monsters that forced innocent people into a purely survivalist mode in the first place. No, you focus only on what you think the great experiment in genocide teaches us about the lowly Jew. Like the thoughtless Breslaw, you prize any hasty rush to judgment that confirms your stubborn prejudice.

      You're so very selective in how you apply whatever paltry aptitude for critical thinking you possess. Seething ethnic hatred will do that to a person. Breslaw is Pavlov, this article is the bell, and you're the salivating dog.

      • Schlomotion

        I don't hate any Jews. I don't know where you keep coming up with that preposterous idea. I simply disagree quite strenuously with some of them. Ultimately, yes, Ms. Breslaw is a genius because in a vast room full of demented Zionist ideologues, she has covered her mouth and nose and gagged quickly to the exit to find the fresh air. Then she rather humorously and explicitly told the tale. She earns my esteem for that. She was so good to punch a hole in the cult of suffering and the (Marxist, really) interpretation of Nietzsche that that which does not kills me makes me stronger. Sometimes that which does not kill you, simply maims you and leaves you a troglodyte, or as Mr. Breslaw aptly put it, a "sheisse… because every group has a few… conniving, indestructible, taking and taking." Bravo to her words. Your response is to proclaim her musings execrable and flawed instead of philosophical and refreshing. You have tried to claim ethnic hatred as the basis for the criticism, but self-pitying bunghole and con artist is not a race or ethnicity, it is a profession. To scourge that professional is not ethnic or racial in any way.

        • Touchstone

          I see. I suppose any living witness to the Nazi genocide is a "self-pitying bunghole" and a "con artist". They should all just shut up and stop frustrating the plans of Holocaust deniers, lest they be considered shysters. I suppose that Wiesenthal, who lost around 90 relatives to the Nazis, should never have tried to bring any of them to justice, even though nobody else in the whole world gave a damn.

          According to you:

          Wiesel is a villain for surviving and telling the tale.

          Wiesenthal is a villain for pursuing Nazi murderers.

          Breslaw is a hero for her "refreshing" and "philosophical" musings that Holocaust survivors represent the worst among Jews.

          Morality doesn't get much more warped and twisted than this. You're scum, Bowelmotion. Truly scum. And you revel in it.

          "I don't know where you keep coming up with that preposterous idea."

          From over a thousand posts, that's where. I don't know where you keep coming up with your feeble denials.

          "I simply disagree quite strenuously with some of them"

          In the same way that Goebbels and Mengele did, perhaps?

          • Schlomotion

            You do that thing where if somebody disagrees with a Jew you scream "help! someone is committing genocide against me!" It's the same as when somebody contradicts a campus feminist and she screams "help! somebody is raping me!" It does no good to point out that women have been raped in the past, or that in theory women can be raped. That doesn't make disagreeing with such a woman turn me into Son of Sam or Genghis Khan any more than disagreeing with charlatans like Wiesel makes me Goebbels.

          • Touchstone

            I'm not screaming any such thing, and I'm bloody tired of having to point out when you're shamelessly distorting something I say to make another specious point. Obviously what I'm saying is that you're full of hate, so it's laughable to pretend that you "simply disagree" with Jews when in fact what you communicate is such disdain and hate it is indeed reminiscent of the garbage purveyed by Der Sturmer's masterminds. Plus you're so obtuse you didn't even grasp the fact that I was using a device known as a "callback" by mentioning the names of the same two Nazis you yourself used. A pile of molasses would cotton on faster than you. Goodness.

            P.S. You're the charlatan, not Wiesel.

          • Schlomotion

            I just think you can't fathom how someone can have an antithetical view to those held by certain Jews. It's not supposed to happen!

        • Foolster41

          Where could people be getting this crazy idea from that you're an anti-Semite? it's baffling! Maybe your use of phrases accusing Jews of "eating bones" which is near identical to the sorts of Jew-as-monster imagery used in Nazi and soviet communist propaganda, and is still the sort of propaganda used in the middle east? Nah, Maybe it's because you're praising someone who is calling holocaust victims "villains", who contenues the stereotype of Jews and connivers (which you praise)? Can't be! Maybe it's your hostility to the the Jewish state, which has every right to exist and give more rights than any muslims naiton is the target of a number of genocidal wars and thousands of terrorist attacks? Couldn't be!

          I have no idea! Baffling!!

          • Schlomotion

            Ah, but I am not an antisemite. An antisemite exhibits belief or behavior hostile toward Jews just because they are Jewish. I never do that.

          • Foolster41

            Riiiight! I quote a number of actions that are clearly "hostile toward Jews just because they are Jewish" (particularly your anti-semetic imagery of "bone eating" and your one-sided hostility to the Jewish state) you can't deny it, so you pretend it's not there!

          • Schlomotion

            Oh my goodness! Why can't I have two-sided hostility to the Jewish state? Why not a two-sided solution? Why can't I have a hostility toward the Jewish state that puts me in favor of the Jewish state? Or don't I?

          • Touchstone

            Sure you do. You exhibit such behavior all the time. You're not just disagreeing "strenuously" with a few columnists and posters. You make sweeping, damning statements about Jews, Judaism and Israel. You always say that "Israelis are bad people" and that "Israel is a bad country". You've listed qualities you hate in Jews, like "obnoxious". You've called Jews "inconsequential people". You've said disparagingly of Jews, "Regale me with what there is to envy". The only columnists who move you to violent rhetoric are Jews, such as Ben Shapiro (whose "neck" you want to "ring"). You shy away from criticizing enemies of Jews and Israel. You always side with anti-Jewish bigots and critics. You blame Jews for making the USA "uninhabitable". When you get stopped at a checkpoint, you blame the Jews. You want Iran to have nukes, even though you know they support terrorists and antisemites , and hold Holocaust denial conferences, and even antisemitic cartoon contests, and you know what anti-Israel rhetoric they spout. You've expressed admiration for Henry Ford, America's most notorious antisemite, a man who inspired Hitler and the Nazis (and received the highest civilian honors from them too). You laud a creature who condemns and defames Holocaust survivors, calling her a "genius". You condemn Wiesenthal for his efforts, a man who heroically stood alone in his quest to track down Nazi murderers. You blame Jews like a reflex because you consider Jews villains to begin with. That's why you blamed all of Muhammad's hate on the Jews themselves. And on and on and on. Truly, on and on and on!

            It's not just what you say explicitly, but what you imply. If Wiesel and Wiesenthal and every pro-Israel columnist you've read are such evil villains, you're implying that you're OK with Nazis brutalizing Jews, and you're OK with those same Nazis escaping justice, and you're OK with discrediting anyone who works to support Israel, meaning your aim is to see Israel fall. And you never decried what happened to the Israelis in Bulgaria. Instead, you condemned an author for hyperbolically linking it with the Holocaust. Your callousness where Jews are concerned is palpable.

            You've given yourself a get-out-of-jail-free card by narrowly defining antisemitism and drawing a slippery, self-serving — yes, SELF-SERVING — conclusion that you don't satisfy your own chosen criteria. How convenient. Alas, your body of work reeks of anti-Jewish hate, and your incessant denials reek of self-serving insincerity.

          • Schlomotion

            The sweeping, damning statements about Jews, Judaism and Israel are just common sense. They are like a nice, polished baseball bat for when I am making a correct and accurate point and you wob up a greaseball of collective self-pity and stolen outrage so I can smack that baby out of the park.

            I am sure I learned the word "canard" from Abe Foxman, who uses it to mean "any statement about real actions by a Jew which can be discredited by linking it to a sweeping racist statement about the Jews uttered by Hitler, Goebbels, Wagner, Luther or the ancient Romans." Really, a canard, means to half-sell a duck, meaning relay a false, unfounded, or otherwise baseless belief. So really, for years someone like Abe Foxman has been slapping a stamp tax on communication and labeling as treif, a whole lot of legitimate discourse. Hasbara is a canard.

            Now it is 2012, and one of Mr. Foxman's most long time foes, Louis Farrakhan is invited by Rahm Emanuel to come to his office and discuss using the FOI to put down violence in Chicago. We are snugly back in the year 1997 at Cabrini Green, or 1989 in the same place, and the Hasbara press is flipping out that Farrakhan has to renounce his antisemitic statements, and Mayor Daley or Emanuel has to denounce his statements and enforce a boycott. No one says Mayor Daley has to renounce his corrupt machine politics, or that Rahm Emanuel has to denounce his father Benjamin Emanuel (aka Ezekiel Auerbach) who was a terrorist bus bomber for Irgun who assassinated Count Bernadotte, the UN envoy to Palestine. Nobody says Rahm Emanuel should use his given name, or denounce Irgun, or Jabotinsky, or Mussolini, or vilify the Mafia or utterly reject his past and apologize that his father after years of committing acts of terrorism came to the US to drop Rahm as an anchor baby in 1959.

            You know who will probably get a get out of jail free card? Jon Pollard. Rod Blagojevich. All the people who lied us into the Iraq War. All the people who destroyed the central economy of the United States and then made off with bailout money. The people who are setting up predator drones to surveil Americans. Sheldon Adelson. Jon Corzine. Eliana Benador. Tony Hayward. Meir Abergil.

            Nazis are such old news.

      Schlomotion,you have a lot in common with Ms. Breslaw. You both lack the most basic empathy for others. Her paternal grandparents survived the Holocaust. Unfortunately,their lessons were lost on her. I wouldn't be surprised if her family disowned her after what she wrote. She has a heart made of stone and so you,Shlomotion.
      In all honesty,I'd call you a modern day Julius Streicher. For those who don't know who this guy,he ran a newspaper called "Der Sturmer." That newspaper was notorious for attacking Jews simply because they existed. You would have loved that paper,Schlockmotion,because it reveled in anti-Jewish filth,the same as you do. Anna Breslaw would have made a perfect contributor to that newspaper. You also would have been a contributor,considering how much you hate Jews.

      • Schlomotion

        It is exactly that kind of wolf-calling that makes charges of antisemitism laughable.

        • Ghostwriter

          You're unbelievable,Schlomotion. You can't respond to anything I wrote so you attack me. Deep down,you know what I'm saying is the truth. But,you're such a hate-filled jerk that you don't care. You don't care about anyone other than yourself. I hope some day you get a brain and a heart because it seems you have neither.

    Socialists are at least gullible people if not intentionally liars. Their ignorance are shocking. Holocaust is only genocide based on purely people nationality. Only because they were Jews they were killed by Nazis. We must remember it to not allow to repeat next Holocaust. Islam is supremacists political ideology to conquer all the world. By Koran world divided on Muslims (believers in Allah) and infidels (unbelievers: Christians, Jews, Hindus, Buddhists, etc). There is two choices: Convert or die. They demonstrated it hundreds times. As per Koran:
    War is ordained by Allah, and all Muslims must be willing to fight, whether they like it or not. Q 2:216
    Kill disbelievers wherever you find them. If they attack you, then kill them. Such is the reward of disbelievers. Q2:191-2
    80% of Koran are alike above ones.

  • marios

    About Indians genocide it is myth concocted by Liberals, socialists. Read Michael Medved great book " 10 big lies about America".
    About African genocide during the slave trade: it is myth again. Non of whites including of course Americans ran and catch them in Africa. They were sold by their own tribes leaders, they were slaved and sold as prisoners by winner's of tribal war leader, they were sold by Muslims who were the biggest slave traders for centuries. By the way slavery was banned in 1999 in Muslim country Mauricio. Slavery was banned (but still used) in Saudi Arabia in 1966.
