|…Shalom laYehudim, Shalom laBnai Noach, Shalom laGoyim. It’s the evening of the 6th day, kaf-khes beNissan, Parashas Tazria-Metzora, tav-shin-ayin-bes, the evening of the 5th day, Thursday, 19 April, 2012, webcasting from the Israeli State of Israel on its version of Holocaust Remembrance Day.
There are three such days. The non-Zionist misnamed ultra-Orthodox – which is as much a misnomer as ultra-pregnant – did not stand still today at 10 a.m. when the sirens wailed because they see the behavior as non-Jewish. They also believe that the Six Million martyrs should be grouped with all Jewish martyrs remembered on the 9th of Av, the granddaddy of a day slated for all the Jews who suffered in history, and some of those people on that day will set aside a psalm just for the Six Million.
Then there is the day in January when Nations United Against the Jews Organization chose to remember our Holocaust, International Holocaust Day, and of course all the holocausts, all the genocides, the oppression of people who suffered from their race, religion, sexual orientation and any other collective one can think of in order to dilute the specific associative connection between the term Holocaust and the Jewish people, the only people at the UN discriminated against by barring them de facto from sitting the Security Council.
If I were Israel’s ambassador to the UN, I would work for a resolution declaring an International Day of Protest Against Anti-Semitism at the UN.
Not that it would pass…
