Jews and the Gaza holocaust

In June, 1942, in reprisal for the assassination of the Nazi commander Reinhard Heydrich, the Germans carried out a murderous rampage of murder and terror throughout Czechoslovakia. The small Czech village of Lidice bore the brunt of the German revenge, with the SS killing all the men, deported all women and children and razed the village to the ground.

Similarly, in March 1944, thirty-three German soldiers were killed when members of an Italian resistance group set off a bomb close to a column of German troops who were marching on via Rasella in Rome. Adolph Hitler got furious and ordered that within 24 hours, ten Italians were to be shot for each German soldier that had been killed. Herbert Kappler, the local German commander, quickly compiled a list of 320 civilians who were to be assassinated as vengeance. On March 24, the victims were transported to the Ardeatine caves where they were summarily executed by the SS.

Numerous other ‘pacification operations’ were carried out by the Nazi armies against civilians throughout Nazi-occupied Europe, in which men, women and children were brutally killed to avenge the death of German occupation soldiers by local resistance fighters.

Now what is the difference between these Nazi atrocities and what Israel, the “only democracy in the Middle East” is doing in the Gaza Strip, where “the most moral army in the world” is slaughtering babies as young as six-months’ old? I know that many Jews, especially Zionist Jews, have developed almost instinctive knee- jerk defensive reactions to any comparisons between Israel and Nazi Germany. However, the truth must be proclaimed aloud, irrespective of how many Zionists will get angry.

Israel claims that it doesn’t murder innocent civilians deliberately. But this is a big, obscene lie, of which even most Israelis are aware. Mistakes happen a few times, but when the wanton slaughter of children occurs each day and every day of the year, it means it is policy.

In addition, when the number of victims, especially innocent victims, as in Gaza, even intent itself becomes irrelevant.

In the final analysis, murdering knowingly is murdering deliberately, regardless of the prevarication and the verbal juggling.

Hence, Jews around the world, especially those who support Israel, should be willing to bring themselves to recognizing that what their wonderful state is doing to these helpless Palestinians is a virtual holocaust or at least a holocaust in the making.

How else can any honest person relate to these phantasmagoric images that keep coming from Gaza, haunting the conscience of every human being?

True, Israel had not introduced gas chambers in Beit Hanun and Khan Younis or Rafah. But we have F-16s raining down bombs and death on sleeping children and women and innocent civilians.

If Jews who support this satanic entity are not willing to call the spade a spade and recognize a holocaust as a holocaust, then they should be viewed as active accomplices in this wanton rampage of murder and terror.

This is not a war. Calling the current Israeli onslaught on Gaza a war is like fornicating with words. Wars occur between armies and states.

What is happening in Gaza is actually a merciless and brutal rampage of murder and terror waged by a Wehrmacht-like army against a blockaded, beleaguered and starved people who want to survive and be free, very much like Jews did under the Nazi occupation of Europe.

Indeed, when Israel murders a hundred Palestinian, mostly innocent civilians, for every Israeli killed, there is a name for that, it is massacre.

It is conscionable that honest people around the world, including many conscientious Jews who can’t bear watching the heinous crimes Israel is committing in their collective name, must call the spade a spade. A holocaust, after all, doesn’t become lesser when perpetrated by Jews. There is no such a thing as a kosher holocaust or kosher massacres.


Now, once again, human decency is being affronted and insulted by this reptile terrorist Matan Vilnai, Israel’s deputy defense minister, who has gone as far as threatening the thoroughly tormented Gazans with a holocaust.

Speaking to the Israeli army radio Friday morning, 29 February, Vilnai said “the more Qassam rockets fire intensifies and the rockets reach a longer range, the Palestinians will bring upon themselves a bigger holocaust because we will use all our power to defend ourselves.”

Well, if Israel thinks that carrying out a holocaust against its victims in Gaza and Rafah and Khan Younis can be justified, then why blame Hitler for effecting a holocaust against his own respective enemies? Is Vilnai vindicating the holocaust?

I think Jews should realize that this criminal state, with its manifestly intransigence and bellicosity, is forcing them to make a moral judgment. In the face of evil, and Israel is a clear embodiment of evil, one can’t be neutral. It is either one stands with evil or stands against it.

Today, people around the world, including millions of Jews, are watching the pornographic slaughter in Gaza live on their TV screens. And no amount of spin, lie, or hasbara will make the images of mutilated babies look innocuous.

Finally, the people of the world will not be duped by the propagandistic lies about so-called rocket attacks on Israeli towns, which are meant first and foremost to create an artificial equation between the wanton extermination of Gazans and the mainly psychological discomfort experienced by some Israeli citizens as a result of the fall of these nearly innocuous fire-crackers, fired by some desperate Gazans in order to deter Israel from killing more of their children.

This is because Israel knows very well how calm and peace can be restored for both the people of Gaza and Israelis across the border: Lift the criminal siege on Gaza, allow Gazans to access food and to travel, allow them to export and import, and stop these daily massacres. And then not a single Qassam will be fired onto Israel.

    No the name is not Massacre – it is GENOCIDE AND HOLOCAUST

    Israeli Zionists = Nazis.

    Whenever Palestinians get killed, it doesn’t get mentioned in the zIONIST controlled press !!!

    Yet, when an iSRAELi is a casualty, it get media time over and OVER again !!!

    When Jews worldwide are treated as Israel treats the Palestinians, this will stop.

    From BBC News website tonite…

    “Article Two of the convention defines genocide as “any of the following acts committed with the intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnic, racial or religious group, as such:

    Killing members of the group
    Causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group
    Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part
    Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group
    Forcibly transferring children of the group to another group”

    There’s the law… its about time the law stopped being a negotiable thing or something held to ransom for the fear of being called “anti-semitic” and applied as equally, as vigorously as it was applied to the Nazi’s.

    There is NO point in feeding their propoganda machine with violence against Jewish people around the world, it will only serve their needs further and make us pay more and why should we stoop to their level by attacking innocent people who do not do any of these things, any nation that is a member of the ICC can bring about a prosecution, perpetrators can be tried in absentia or Interpol can issue warrants for their arrest, they can cry “anti-semite” but the law is the only way to deal with this, Blair, Bush and others and bring them to justice for war crimes, crimes against humanity, crimes against the peace, genocide and more.

    33 WALLs + ONE surrounding Gaza.

    The world must pressure iSRAEL to STOP the wall !!!

    Even the holy town of Bethehem is surrounded by a 30 foot wall topped with guard towers, razor wire, video cameras and machine gun implacements …

    This is precisely why I liken Gaza to the Warsaw Ghetto. In fact, I advocate that the Palestinians in Gaza should put up large billboards saying “You are now entering the Warsaw Ghetto” at every entry point into Gaza.

    I noted recently the wry irony that at a time of the worst Genocide to have been perpetrated since the Second World War (the current Holocaust in Gaza), this should co-incide with the release of a new Hollywood Blockbuster staring Daniel Craig, about the ‘heroic’ struggle of a group of Jewish escapees fighting against the very type of Holocaust that their decendents are currently carrying out in The Gaza Strip.

    The fact that the arch Holocaust-whingers…a people who have turned the suffering and ordeals of their predecessors into a multi-billion dollar ‘industry’ for the justification of all manner of suppression and moral blackmail, whilst carrying their own Holocaust in Gaza, is utterly repellent.

    But this aside…not only is this current phase of the long running Holocaust in Gaza reprehensible to the utmost…but actually…in all respects, it exactly mirrors the actions of the Nazis…crimes that the Nazis were indicted for by International Courts after WW2…except there is a vital difference.

    If such crimes were so heinous 70 years ago…then their perpetration now is far worse (especially from a country whose whole existence and funding was derived from their ‘victim’ status after WW2)…ergo…logically…it would be entirely fair to say that Israel is worse than the Nazis.

    For example in 1945 Hermann Goering and his Luftwaffe was indicted for the War crimes of bombing civilian areas indiscriminately…but so are the Israelis now in the Gaza Holocaust…ergo…Israel is worse than the Nazis.

    The German Army was indicted in 1945 for reprisals against innocent civilians, the relatives of wanted suspects and murdering children…the Israelis have done all of this in the Gaza Holocaust…ergo…Israel is worse than the Nazis.

    The SS was indicted after the war for many ‘crimes’ that today seem to be ok
    today…torture, detention, rounding people up into ghettos and rounding up civilians into buildings which are then bombed…and yes…the Israelis have done all of this in the Gaza Holocaust…ergo…Israel is worse than the Nazis.

    Perhaps one day these modern day Israeli Nazis will face the consequences of their actions.

    Oh…and the next time that you hear a Jew whinge about Nazi Holocaust…just ask them one thing.

    To my best knowledge, the Jewish State is one of the most important concepts to most Jews…after all, apparently God promised them the land (I must admit though, If I were one of Gods personally chosen people and he promised me Israel instead of somewhere really nice like Hawaii, Thailand, or The West Indies…i’d be inclined to think that I’d been mightily short changed)…but I digress…the next part of this, is that most Jews in pre-war Europe had been integrated completely within their respective countries for centuries.

    Without the disruption of the war, they would never have even considered moving to Palestine and there would certainly NEVER have been an ‘Israel’…ergo…the price of Israel = 6 million Jewish lives.

    If you were to ask Jews worldwide if they would rather have those 6 Million people back or have the State of Israel, i’m inclined to think most would go for the latter…therefore, they should stop whinging about the Holocaust…perhaps even give the next Nazi that they come accross a pat on the back and thank them for their lovely new country…and most of all…stop their own Genocidal Holocaust in Gaza!

    Israel’s actions in Gaza are an atrocity. Israel must stop the bombing and those in charge held accountable for their actions.

    But all of you preaching violence and hatred in response are animals.

    The state of Israel was started by spilling the blood of the Palistineans and sorry to say the British who were sheltering them and arming them to do more bloodshed they themselves were killed by the zionist genocidal gangs they ceated “Stern and Irgun” and the amazing thing is the British did nothing to stop them,but they were blessed by the Americans! No wonder. What started by shedding blood will continue so till they are stopped and will never live in peace .Zionist Israel will never live in peace not in a thousand years .Afterall they are occupiers.

    Yes, this is a holocaust on the Palestinians. The rockets on Israel kill a few, which gives them license to unload and kill many civilians.

    Here is an article that compares the Jewish and Palestinian holocausts just by using photos: The Jewish Holocaust and the Palestinian Holocaust
