As the decent, civilized side of the world commemorates Holocaust Remembrance day, the spike in Jew hatred worldwide portends another catastrophe.
The Holocaust, while it was a German initiative, was carried out by every nation in Europe, save for the Danes. Denmark saved its Jews. There were Dutch Nazis, Polish Nazis — Europe as a continent decided it was a good idea to get rid of the Jews. Holland had the highest rate of collaboration with the Nazis, higher than any other country in Western Europe. 95% of Dutch Jews were murdered. The lesson that Holland and Europe should have taken away from the Holocaust was that they were evil and they have to be good. And that is the lesson they had to learn. But they didn’t. They have to be able and willing to make moral distinctions and stand up for the good and fight evil and that is something the Europeans refuse to do. Germany, Holland et al decided to embrace madness and evil as their central unifying characteristic under the Nazis. That was what the problem was. Subsequently they took all the wrong lessons from World War II and are applying them (i.e. nationalism is bad therefore EU transnational gobbledygook is good), while ignoring the only lesson that’s really relevant from their defeat in WWII, which is that you have to choose good and defend good and fight with the intention of defeating evil.
This is important at such a time where we are witnessing a return to that deadly pattern.
The answer is not to fetishize six million dead Jews but to stand against norming Jew hatred and support Israel.
Berlin: More than a thousand antisemitic incidents
In 2018 there were 1083 antisemitic incidents in Berlin. This figure is disclosed in a new report of the Research and Information Center for Antisemitism in Berlin [RIAS]. It represents an increase of 14% over 2017. The incidents included 46 physical attacks, 43 cases of intentional damage to property, and 46 threats.
The increase in these three areas is far greater than the overall increase in antisemitic incidents. RIAS concludes that this reflects two simultaneous trends in Berlin: an increasing violent expression of antisemitism and a lowering of the hate threshold. Also some non-Jews have become victims of antisemitic incidents.
