THE DEAFENING SILENCE OF ELIE WIESEL

One would think that a man that supposedly suffered would be the first to speak out against others suffering….. but one would be wrong to assume something like that when the person involved makes his living by wailing about his own suffering…. caring nothing about the plight of others.

This is what the ‘holocaust industry’ is all about….. it’s all about money and the hell with everyone else! Below is one person’s opinion on this matter…..

An open letter to author Elie Wiesel regarding Gaza

Dear Mr. Wiesel,

First time I read Night, your memoir that describes your horrific experiences during the Holocaust, was in 2003. In my opinion, two books everyone in the world should read are Night and Nelson Mandela’s Long Walk to Freedom.

I also suffered in my childhood. In 1992, my life was turned upside down when the civil war broke out in Bosnia, my country. At this time, I was thirteen and my sister was eleven.

My family is Serbian and we stayed in our city, Gorazde, which was held under siege by the Serbian forces. Overnight, many of our Muslim neighbors and even some friends began seeing us as the enemy. For two years, my family endured treatment that no human being should ever be subjected to. We were shot at, terrorized, put in a detention camp, starved, and eventually stripped of everything we owned. All this because of our ethnicity.

When I was seventeen, I almost killed a man who had attempted to kill my family during the war. After years of emotional struggle when I considered revenge as the only way to move on with my life, I was blessed to get involved in a youth program designed to help young people in Bosnia to become leaders in their communities. I worked with “former enemies” and this helped me open up my mind.

Over the years, yours and Nelson Mandela’s books, experiences, and work for peace made me think about my wartime experience and subsequently led me to a complete personal transformation.

I went from a teenager seeking retribution to a person seeking healing, reconciliation, and peace. I wrote about my wartime experience and search for peace and reconciliation in Not My Turn to Die: Memoirs of a Broken Childhood in Bosnia, published in March 2008 by AMACOM Books.

I found somewhere a quote where you say: “I swore never to be silent whenever and wherever human beings endure suffering and humiliation. We must always take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented.”

I completely agree with you.

I tried to find an Op-Ed, an interview, a statement made by you, in which you say something about the current conflict in Gaza and condemn the killings of innocent people.

I couldn’t find anything.

Like you, I dedicated my life to peace building and conflict transformation and management worldwide and promised to never be silent whenever and wherever human beings endure suffering and humiliation.

I am not influential like you, but I still do everything I can to voice my opinion. I write and publish articles. Over the years, I wrote extensively about Rwanda, Darfur, Zimbabwe, and other places where people suffer.

I’m currently writing about the crisis in Gaza and condemning killing of over 300 innocent Palestinian children who were brutally murdered by the Israeli forces in three weeks.

Will you?

Sincerely,
Savo Heleta

    Cheers DP:) You are 100% correct there, it IS all about the money http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-3488389,00.html

    and also using the Holocaust as the rally cry of “never again” so long as that “never again” applies to only Israel. I hate talking about the holocaust, because it truly was so very wrong. And I do feel for Jews on that count. But, they don’t own the rights to suffering, that is my problem with the holocaust. Many other civilisations and people have sufffered as well. I’m Irish (surprise LOL) and our people have had several holocausts. Our population was halved three times in history AND our population has NEVER recovered, but we dont use that to beat up others and an excuse to attack people we don’t like, or worse, an excuse to break international law. It happened, we survived and we moved on. Israel must do the same.

    Never again must apply to ALL people, or none IMHO

    LOL I’m on a roll here, I also want to say that I find it stunning that of all the atrocities in this world, why is it that in American schools reading “The Diary of Anne Frank” is required reading for young people? Just that simple little thing is quite telling as to how much the Israeli lobby has infiltrated into American life. I have no problems with it being read, so long as other atrocities are also on offer for reading. Yet that is not the case, young children are not offered a choice to read about the “Nakba” or “Anne Frank” or the “Irish famine” or how America Stole Indian land, only ever one choice, so the seeds are sown early. And don’t even get me started on Hollywood movies………………

    “Freedom Writers” which should have been a feel good movie was nothing more than a holocaust propoganda piece that centered on “The Diary of Anne Frank”, which is now being revealed as a fraud. Also, Wiesel’s book has also come under fire for not being truthful, which begs the question, what else is he not being truthful about?

    Eli Wiesel is a fraud. He is somebody who assumed the idendity of someone else, according to a former inmate of the real Eli Wiesel.

    Writing a letter to an imposter is a waste of time. Elie Wiesel was a Hungarian Jew who spent time in a concentration camp. He should have a number (A-7713) tattooed on his forearm, this imposter does not. This imposter speaks with a clearly French accent, and does not respond to questions spoken in Hungarian. He has never been recorded speaking in his supposed native language. His cellmate at the Auschwitz camp says this man is an imposter. Through deception they shall wage war.

    I agree with “IrishforPalestine” – Like her I too have been a victim of 700 years of English Rule and if that is not a reason for backing any underdog, nothing is. As for Mr. Weisel, he is a disgusting fraud and what he is afraid of is his “outing.” He has made millions from his lies stolen from another man and has never served a day in a concentration camp in his life.

    We need a scientific impartial investigation into the holocaust because it is really now leaving an indelible mark upon peoples lives worldwide. Peoples lives who had nothing to do with it are being destroyed and even countries. So, we have to have an enquiry into what really did happen.

    Are we all the victims of an awful hoax? Or did the Jews just embellish everything? We certainly need to know the answers and soon.

    Nice try to make it seem that Jews are the problem.

    The problem is: Zionists trying to exploit whatever mass murder occurred in the first half of the last century as an excuse for Palestinian holocaust.

    You Blind fools
    The holocaust:
    Was and, still is, to those blind enough to believe anything. The biggest hoax played on the human race.
    It is a disgusting Lie, fabricated by the greatest liars, thieves and murderers, in history.
    The only thing chosen about these liars, and ragger bonds, was back in history when they where chosen to be remove from decent Humans, and cast out into the desert. Only because of their lying, and thieving ways.
    Which to this date has not changed?
    To believe any of the sewerage that comes out of their mouths, is a blight on our own society.

    E-Lie Weasel has been the Holocaust ™ Poster Boy for so many decades, he’s become an iconoclast of human rights.

    But, in truth, he’s the archetype of a self absorbed professional Zionist whose mission in life is to make everybody else think that Jews have cornered the market on human suffering and persecution.

    His clarion call is “Never Again”.

    But the incessant whining, moaning and monstrous hypocrisy of E-Lie and his cohorts have a lot of people seriously thinking about “again”..in a big way.

    Nobody has a choice as to what ethnicity their parents are.

    But everybody has a choice as to whether or not they will support, promote or even remain mute to racist apartheid, war crimes, ethnic cleansing and brutal militarist colonialism.

    This is what E-Lie is an apologist for.

    And this is the case even while he’s incessantly bemoaning the “6 Million” canard which has since been debunked by all serious historians and scholars of Holocaust ™ mythology.

    You see, to those like E-Lie Weasel, human suffering and repression is only a reality when it happens to Jews.

    The day people start holding Zionists accountable will be the day when human suffering and repression will finally start being purged at long last.

    Indeed, to follow up on a previous posters comment on Hollywood Zionist propaganda.

    I went to a first run film last night titled “Taken” starring Liam Neeson. It’s a drama focusing on the international sex slave racket.

    It’s no secret that the Israeli Mob is reputed to be among the most prolific and ruthless purveyors of human chattel of all.

    But guess who the “oh so slimy and swarthy slavers” were and where they originated ? How many guesses do you really need? They were Bosnian Muslims working for an Arab Sheik – what else?

    Nice try Ms. Heleta. Elie Wiesel is the chief of the HOLOCAUST INDUSTRY. He runs a big business to victimize all others for the benefit of Jews only. He has no concern for humanity at large. I would much like to see the response to your open letter if there is any.

    Re: ‘Irish ignorance is disgusting’
    Well, I was born in a very infamous concentration camp in Germany. It was ‘liberated’ by American carpet bombing. Most people in the camp were killed. I survived under the rubble. There were some other mothers with their kids who also miraculosly survived. My mum said there were about five children like myself.
    I could never claim the status of ‘holocaust survivor’ although, unlike many people, I have genuine credentials.
    But I am not a holocaust survival because I do not belong to ‘bene nati’. Never got any money, no compensation and no recognition of myself or my mother’s suffering. Nobody would ever interview me, or any non-Jew survival.
    During the Remembrance Day it was clearly stated that Holocaust is defined only for the Jews. Wiesenthal once publicly stated that the Jews ‘have a unique suffering’. (Apparently, ‘Holocaust’ means ‘burning offering’ so yes, probaly not appropriate for non-Jews.)
    As all the Jews from the camp I was born, perished under the American bombs, and many other camps were completely destroyed to the ground, no-one can claim the exact number of victims. There are no records apart from, probably, Auschwitz as it was liberated by the Red Army and the people were released. It is said that the Soviets took all the documents.
    The Auschwitz mythology is also confusing. There were 49 subcamps and three main camps in the Auschwitz region. The treatment of the people was different for those who were fit enough and could work, and the very inhumane treatment of those who were not. Thus, the different opinion about the bloody Auschwitz.
    High time, the camp literature were collected and published. There was plenty of it right after the war. It does not get re-published for some mysterious reasons. I have never seen a film, an interview, a story recently published about a non-Jew survival. All we are allowed is to read, ad nauseam, Ann Frank, the book which is not a camp literature at all.

    Thanks for posting my letter here. The letter was published around the world during the Israeli attack on Gaza in the begining of 2009. I also emailed the letter to a few people at the Elie Wiesel Foundation.

    However, I never received any response. Some time ago, an Italian journalist asked Mr. Wiesel about my letter in an interview and he said he never saw it.

    Since when did Jews ever claim they “own the right to suffering”????

    They don’t claim they own the right to suffering. Rather too many claim that the Shoah was unique. (For example, they have managed to link the word Holocaust to their cause so effectively that it almost has no other meaning now.)

    Yet there have been other Holocausts. Some are famous — the Armenians in Turkey. Some are not — the Chechens under Stalin. Too many Zionists would rather these not be mentioned, because they deflect attention from their uniqueness.

    I don’t doubt the truth of the Jews’ suffering under Hitler, unlike a couple of the idiots above. But they cannot expect us all to treat them as a “special people”, who can treat their enemies (namely the Arabs) with impunity. They should behave properly and humanely if they want respect.
