The Miracle of Zionism

"Israel is the only nation in the world that is governing itself in the same territory, under the same name, and with the same religion and same language as it did 3,000 years ago." - Historian Barbara Tuchman

"Israel is the only nation on the face of the earth that was created by a sovereign act of God" - Pastor John Hagee

"All things are mortal but the Jew; all other forces pass, but he remains. What is the secret of his immortality?" - Author / Atheist, Mark Twain (long before the Holocaust and Israeli-Jewish statehood)

"They are the most glorious nation that ever inhabited this Earth. The Romans and their Empire were but a Bauble in comparison of the Jews. They have given religion to three quarters of the Globe and have influenced the affairs of Mankind more, and more happily, than any other Nation ancient or modern." - President John Adams - His 1808 response letter criticizing the depiction of Jews by the French Enlightenment philosopher Voltaire.

Yom HaShoah

The 27th day of Nisan on the Hebrew calender (April 11, 2010 of this year) commemorates the anniversary of the Warsaw ghetto uprising. 1 It is called Yom HaShoah in the Hebrew and it is known in the West as the "Holocaust Remembrance Day". The word (שואה) means, "tumult / tempest / desolation" and is used in the Hebrew Bible in Isaiah 47:11.

The ashes within the Nazi ovens produced a great hastening to seek a world "Jewish safe place". This safe place became the State of Israel. Therefore, since this blog-site is primarily centered around Biblical Zionism, I seek to "remember" the Shoah (Holocaust) through a Biblical Zionism perspective.

So What Are We Remembering Exactly?
We already have a day set aside in remembering military sacrifices in which our friends and family members have became included. That day is Memorial Day (and Veteran's Day). Therefore, what should be our focus on Yom HaShoah? Are we to just remember a war-time tragedy of war crimes by the Nazi regime or something far beyond the ordinary in the epic of mankind? For me, remembering the Holocaust is to journey into spiritual world that goes much deeper than just "events" of the Holocaust and into a place of origins that reveal that the Holocaust did not begin nor end with the Nazis!

Was The Holocaust Strictly Jewish?
About three years ago my wife and I was touring the Holocaust exhibition at the Sherwin Miller Museum of Jewish Art in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Soon after beginning the tour I noticed a group of three ladies (one of them being elderly) just ahead of us reading the words on one of the displays that was addressing the many Jewish children that were put to death (1.5 million Jewish children). Immediately the elderly women of the group spouted off, "These Jews need to understand that there were others who died during the Holocaust and not just them". Because I had visited this exhibit prior to this particular visit and therefore knew the layout of the exhibition, it was all I could do to not address this woman by stating the following:

"Listen you gentile-devil, if you'll turn your evil back and cast your Jew-hating eyeballs onto the display behind you, you will see huge display that is bigger than the one you just viewed that is dedicated to the non-Jews effected by the Holocaust! Perhaps then 'you' yourself it might 'understand' that the ones to whom you refer as "these Jews" in literally every venue regarding the Holocaust go elaborately far out of their way to acknowledge not only the non-Jewish victims, but the righteous Gentiles who put their lives on the line for Jews!"

There is no doubt in my mind that there are antisemites who will go to Holocaust memorials with a mindset to criticize as did the woman mentioned above. There has even been white supremacists / neo-Nazis visit such exhibits in order to gloat over the tragedy itself! Because recognition by Jewish educators of the Gentile Holocaust victims is so prevalent in books, lectures, memorials, web-sites, radio, ect., it is an antisemitic based claim to even suggest that there is some sort of Jewish "conspiracy" to avoid acknowledging Gentile suffering during the Holocaust. Myself being a Gentile, I would argue that Jewish Holocaust educators actually go too far in Gentile victim recognition. Trying to place the Gentiles in the same grouping as the Jews negates the main purpose, root-cause, and focus, of the Holocaust which was none other than "Jewish annihilation". It must be completely realized that it was Hitler's "War Against the Jews" that indeed was the sole root cause for the 45 million Gentile deaths during World War II.2
There is also the fact that antisemites actually exploit and give preeminence to Gentile victimhood in order to avoid or dilute the Gentile Holocaust sin - the worst of mankind's history!

Fact: Only an antisemite will overly place strong emphasis on the Holocaust Gentile victims without acknowledging the root cause of "Jewish annihilation"!
Fact: While it is expected of everyone in mainstream society to condemn the Holocaust of which every incognito antisemite will do, a true antisemite will NEVER go beyond Holocaust-condemning lip-service and condemn the Gentile origins and makeup of the Holocaust!

The Holocaust Unholy Trinity:
There are three methods of thought from which the antisemitic Gentile world portrays the Holocaust:
  1. Holocaust Denial - Usually a denial of the Nazi usage of gas chambers and number of "Death Camps" while greatly reducing the number of Jewish victims (from 6 million to a mere one hundred thousand or so) while greatly inflating the non-Jewish victims of Nazi Germany. Also known as "Holocaust Minimizers".
  2. Holocaust Glorification - Mostly coming out of the Islamic countries in which Hitler is actually praised and rebuked (for not finishing the Jewish annihilation job). The claim is that the Jews / Zionist purposely caused the Holocaust by "oppressing" the Nazi-electing German people. Note: This is the exact same claim that Palestinian advocates use today against the Jewish people of Israel in defending the Hamas-electing Palestinian people!
  3. Holocaust Relativism - An attempt to make all victims equal as "targets" while denying or purposely avoiding the core-root cause of the Holocaust which was Hitler's "War Against the Jews" (The Russian Jewish Bolsheviks and the Jewish capitalists West) culminating in the "Finial Solution" of which no Jew-hating Gentile was slated to become its victim.
It must be pointed out that all three method of thoughts are antisemitic based and work together with the same goal and mindset against the Jews. A Saudi Arabian Holocaust Glorifier will find common ground with a European Holocaust Denier, and a European Holocaust Denier will find brotherhood with an American Holocaust Relativist, and so on. Where they are politically banned together is a place called "The Quartet".

I had a discussion just this week about Holocaust remembrance with a person that I would label a "Free-Palestine' Liberal". She advocated "Holocaust Relativity" by suggesting that the Holocaust was equally "forced" on all peoples who outside the Nazi regime - Jews and Gentiles alike. It was that suggestion that prompted me to write this blog. Her being a Catholic immediately reminded me of a 26 foot Catholic cross being place at Auschwitz by Carmelite nuns in 1988> http://www.scrapbookpages.com/poland/Crosses/Crosses.html

A "cut to the chase" response to such Holocaust Relativism is to ask: What was the "question" that connects with the answer, "The Finial Solution"? In other words, the "Finial Solution" was an answer to a "problem", therefore, what was the "problem / question"?
Fact: In Nazi ideology "The Finial Solution" is the answer to the "Jewish Problem / Question".

The "Finial Solution" wasn't linked to a POW, political prisoner, mentally retarded, homosexual, Jehovah Witness, and Gypsy "Problem / Question" even though these groups all shared as Holocaust victims with the main target - the Jews. As it has been stated, "Not every target was a Jew, but every Jew was a target". Every other victim-group exception perhaps being the Gypsies,3 could have changed their "target valve" by siding with the Nazis and their ideology, of which the Jews (having tainted inferior blood in the Nazi view) didn't have such a choice.

From Hitler's Mein Kamph written in 1924 to his last political statement written a single day before his suicide in April 1945, focused solely on the Jews as his cause for war. To Hitler, it was only "International Jewry" that is blamed for the war between England and Germany - no other people (target) could be so deviant. > http://www.hitler.org/writings/last_testament/

Just Another Genocide?
The Jewish people are unique in the world of "genocide" (a word coined as a result of the Holocaust). Whether it is the region of Darfur region of Sudan, the "Killing Fields" of Cambodia, or Rwanda, no other people has the three millennium tract record of being the target of a WORLD SOUGHT ANNIHILATION BY "GENOCIDE"! In other words, it has been only the Janjaweed who has sought to murder the black Christians of Sudan, only the Khmer Rouge regime who sought a Cambodian genocide, and only the Hutus who worked a genocide on the Rwandan Titsis. Jewish genocides on the other hand, has been physically sought from every part from within the New World and Middle East from time immemorial, and is currently being sought yet once again by Ahmadinejad and the Quartet even after all the 20th century genocides!

It is the world concept of "Deicide" (the murder of God) of which no other people besides the Jews has been identified which has caused the Jews to be singled out for a "special" genocide throughout Replacement Theology Christendom. Of this genocidal concept Islam connects both physically and in theology. 4

This uniqueness of being a genocidal target throughout history is displayed in the Jewish ritual Passover reading of the Haggadah. Even centuries before the Crusades, the Inquisitions, the Pogroms, the Holocaust, an now before Ahmadinejad, the eight century Haggadah states:
"In each and every generation they rise up against us to destroy us. And The Holy One, blessed be He, rescues us from their hands."

Perhaps it would be a good Holocaust remembrance practice to "remember" this statement above that is contained within the Jewish Haggadah every Holocaust Remembrance Month that happens for the most part to be in April? Isn't it ironic that the Jews are reading such a statement every April while the Gentiles focus only on the years 1933-1945?

The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun. - Ecclesiastes 1:9

When I first started my in-depth study the Holocaust it was the Kielce Pogrom that happened after the supposed Holocaust years (1939-1945) that stood out in my mind. Poland, the home to the infamous Auschwitz, Dachua, Treblinko, concentration - extermination camps, and Death Marches, was not finished with Jew-murder in "1946". After 1.5 million Jewish children being murdered mostly at Auschwitz, the Poles of Kielce including police officers of all people, acted on yet another child-kidnapping blood libel and murdered 42 Jews and wounded 40 more. Apparently, these Poles didn't appreciate 200 Jews returning and reclaiming their homes after having the audacity to survive the German concentration champs. > http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kielce_pogrom

This pogrom to me was a small yet powerful sign that even though the Nazism regime had forever ended, the "spirit" behind Nazism continues on. The fact is, this spirit is not a "Nazi spirit" that began in 1933 with the rise of German Nazism. It is the spirit of Jew-hatred (I called it the "Spirit of Covenant Hatred") that has expressing itself since time memorial. The only thing the Nazi did new that past Jew-hating generations didn't use as a method of expression was the use of Zyklon B gas. The Nuremberg Laws, ghettos, yellow badges, Hitler's "blood purity" ideology, Jewish expulsion, and of course Jewish book & body burning, have all been a method of expression many times over in past centuries and in past generations! > http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Timeline_of_antisemitism These past murdered Jews - murdered for the same exact reasons (for being Jews) as was the Jews of the Nazi era - should be remembered with the same reverence every Yom HaShoah. For me, they are remembered - they're one of the main reasons I wrote this blog.

"...because ye build the tombs of the prophets, and garnish the sepulchers of the righteous, and say, if we had been in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets. Wherefore ye be witnesses unto yourselves, that ye are the children of them which killed the prophets. Fill ye up then the measure of your fathers." - Matthew 23: 29-32

In turning around this first century old "New Testament" condemnation of the Jews onto this Gentile generation that is guilty of Holocaust-murdering Jews, I have to say, the Gentiles are very good about "garnishing" European Holocaust memorial "sepulchers". I mean the Europeans did a garnishing good job at preparing and polishing up the attic at the Anna Frank Memorial in Holland and the "European Holocaust Memorial" in Landsberg, Germany (in the land of the Holocaust) has been nicely prepared and looks to be very well kept. >http://www.buergervereinigung-landsberg.org/english/index.shtml
No doubt, the members of the Gentile World Quartet would state that they would not be partakers of Hitler's European "willing executioners" while they go out of their way to supply the new generation of the "Haj Amin Al-Hussini people" with weapons, billions of dollars, bias media coverage, and of all things, a world-recognized state - a state of Jew-murderers! 5 Therefore the Europeans are "witnesses unto yourselves" that their Quartet (and all who support them) "are of them" that murdered 6 millions Jews during the Holocaust - "filling up the measure" of their European Holocaust-guilty fathers!

It must be remembered that the same "spirit" behind the Nazi regime that manifested itself centuries before > http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Timeline_of_antisemitism is very much in the present (in the form of the "Haj Amin Al-Husseini ideology people") and will continue to be in the future. Therefore we have among in the world there is the "democratically elected" Hamas just west of Jews (inside the very Land of the Covenant) Hizbollah just to the north of the Jews, and of course there's Ahmadinejad with his soon to be nuclear Shahab III missiles. Therefore, when I remember the Holocaust I'm not only look into the past but the future as well, knowing that not so long ago in a time prior to 1938, the Nazi Holocaust was then a "future" event.

Notes:
1. The Warsaw ghetto uprising actually occurred on Nisan 14th. but being that day was the day before Pesach (Passover) Yom HaShoah was moved to the 27th of Nisan, which like all Hebrew holidays varies every year on the Gregorian calendar.
2. "Germany was at the present time engaged in a life and death struggle with two citadels of Jewish power: Great Britain and Soviet Russia" - quoted by Adolph Hitler / - A Lethal Obsession by Robert S. Wistrich - page 670
3. As pointed out in the book "Why the Jews?" by Dennis Prager and Joseph Telushkin - pages 137, 217 - Gypsy murder was due to their incompatibility with Aryanism and Nazism. Indeed some Gypsies as individuals were spared and some even served in the Nazi army! The Jews on the other hand were targeted for their "Characteristic of Jewish blood" that sought to dominate the Germanic Aryan world, thereby leaving no alternative that no "Jewish blood" could be spared in the mindset of Hitler and the Third Reich.
4. Islam is a spin-off of the Catholic Church (i.e. veneration of Mary and usage of the rosary called Misbaha or Tasbih as well as many other ritual and ideological connections). Both religions single out and depict the Jew as the main enemy of their faith - see I Thessalonians 2:15 and Koran 5:82. The End of Days according to Islam is the total "Genocide" of the Jews - see Hadith "Muslim - book 041 number 6985.
5. There is currently only four "countries" that are on the US State Department list of "State Sponsored Terrorism >http://www.state.gov/s/ct/c14151.htm My question would be "how long" will it take the US State Department to add "Palestine" to the official list of "terror 'state' sponsors" once they have been recognized by the UN and have carried out terrorist acts across the UN green-line border into Israel? Maybe placing "Palestine" on the US "State Sponsored Terrorism" list will be the "first official act" towards a state of Palestine that the US (along with the rest of the Quartet) are trying so hard to create? That would make a lot of sense wouldn't it?
