For Jews, 'Never Again' is just a phrase while this picture paints 1,000 words!

At the end of January, Holocaust Remembrance Day was meant to serve as a reminder for the world that what happened mere decades ago could never be allowed to happen again!

At that time I had observed in an article titled, 'The Holocaust! Do you remember?', that days with historic names such as Holocaust Remembrance Day and symbolic phrases like 'Never Again' don't prevent the unthinkable from happening any more than the empty rhetoric of politicians results in tangible action.

'For example how many Jews around the world even knew that this day of remembrance was taking place? To be honest I didn't know until I read about it after the fact.

Then there was the rhetoric of some around the world who took a slightly different tone, such as the words of Silvio Berlusconi who "...praised Benito Mussolini for `'having done good" despite the Fascist dictator's anti-Jewish laws. Berlusconi also defended Mussolini for allying himself with Hitler, saying he likely reasoned that it would be better to be on the winning side..." (Source)'

Then, about one week after Holocaust Remembrance Day, I wrote an article titled, '21st Century Brownshirts', which sadly looked at the present-day reality of the Jewish condition in Europe versus the wishful thinking.

'Soon, no survivors to the horrors of the Holocaust will remain to tell the story while schools, historians, politicians and the PC crowd will slowly work to erode the memory.

In that article of January 28th I had included links to four articles clearly showing that unless Jews make a concerted stand to reverse the tide of anti-Semitism, the phrase "Never Again" will be just another saying with little impact or meaning behind it. History, as history so often does, sadly may repeat itself...

...Israel’s ambassador to Denmark and the head of Copenhagen’s Jewish community have both warned Jews in that city that if they don’t want to be roughed up on the street by anti-Semites, they’d better not wear anything that would identify them as Jews – and, for good measure, they should also lower their voices when speaking Hebrew. The other day, in a supremely depressing article for Israel National News, Giulio Meotti provided a round-up of similar developments from around Europe.

For instance: a Jewish theological seminary in Potsdam has asked its rabbis not to wear yarmulkes in public. Pupils at a Jewish school in Berlin have been warned to speak German, not Hebrew, on school trips – and to wear baseball caps over their yarmulkes “so you don’t give stupid people something to get annoyed about.” Jews at Rome’s main synagogue now remove their yarmulkes when leaving services; so do Jews in Malmö, Sweden.'

Now this from the streets of Budapest!

Finally, I received this text and photo in an email which illustrates the fact that anti-Semitism is unfortunately alive and very well in Europe!

This poster describes a local "hunk" in uniform, fairly similar to the SS, holding a "small" Jew by his hair.

The little Jew is ugly, his face distorted, hooked nose and trembling with fear.

The pockets are designed to express that Jews have "pockets full of money".

In case you are wondering, the poster is not from Germany, in the years of 1932 to 1945, but it is printed now, tens of thousands of copies all over Hungary.

Yes, anti-Semitism and hatred of Jews is rearing its head, and so began the roots that led to the Holocaust of the Jewish people.
