Israel PM Netanyahu: US, France, UK Allowed The Holocaust
By Joel Leyden
Israel News Agency
Jerusalem, Israel --- June 15, 2013 Part of the following was communicated by the Israel Prime Minister's Office to the Israel News Agency.
Prime Minister of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu, made the following remarks on Thursday at the dedication ceremony for the permanent pavilion at Block 27 at Auschwitz-Birkenau Concentration Camp.
"The leaders of the Allies (UK, US, France) knew about the Holocaust in real time. They understood exactly what was happening in the death camps. They were asked to act, they could have acted, and they did not. To we Jews the lesson is clear. We must not be complacent in the face of threats of annihilation. We must not bury our heads in the sand or allow others to do the work for us.
From here, the place that attests to the desire to destroy us, I, the Prime Minister of Israel, the state of the Jewish People, say to all the nations of the world: The State of Israel will do whatever is necessary to prevent another holocaust."
Netanyahu made the comments as other Israeli government ministers, Polish Minister of Culture and National Heritage Bogdan Zdrojewski, Director of the Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum Piotr Cywinski, Chairman of the Yad Vashem Directorate and exhibition curator Avner Shalev, Chairman of the Yad Vashem Council Rabbi Israel Meir Lau and Holocaust survivors looked on.
A definition of "Holocaust Shoah" is written on the wall of the exhibition foyer. As the visitor leaves the entrance, and enters this hallway in Auschwitz-Birkenau, the senses are suffused with the words and melody of prayer - a Jewish and universal expression of the human spirit. Upon entering the adjoining space, visitors are engulfed in an enveloping 360-degree cinematic montage of original footage of Jewish life between the two world wars. Following this sweeping panorama, visitors are confronted with the central tenets of Nazi German racist ideology, the main motivation behind the Germans' imperative of annihilating the Jewish people.
Netanyahu stated that the "so-called" Iranian presidential election will "change nothing" in the Islamic republic's quest for nuclear weapons and that the regime will continue to pursue a bomb aimed at destroying Israel.
"This is a regime that is building nuclear weapons with the expressed purpose to annihilate Israel's 6 million Jews," Netanyahu said, alluding to the number of Jews killed by the Nazis during World War II. "We will not allow this to happen. We will never allow another Holocaust."
I don’t disagree, but I would state that FDR and his Nazi-sympathetic opinion did most of the enabling. Much of the anti-Nazi people that tried to spread the word in the US were shut down.
Alas unfortunately he’s right.
Most Jews vote Democratic, against their material interest, partly because theyre worried about evangelicals establishing a Christian nation, but also because of a history lesson passed on from parents to children: Franklin Roosevelt purportedly stood up for Jews against reactionary interests. Barack Obamas anti-Israel position has shaken some of that support, and if the story told in Rafael Medoffs FDR and the Holocaust: A Breach of Faith (David S. Wyman Institute, 2013) gets out, Democrats will receive fewer legacy votes.
Medoff details Roosevelts disparaging remarks about Jews and includes previously unpublished interviews with Jewish leaders who say Roosevelt hoodwinked them and didnt lift a finger to help Jewish refugees from Hitler. Had the United States allowed in escapees instead of sending them back to Europe, or had FDR pressured Great Britain to allow refugees to settle in what is now Israel, many lives could have been saved. Even as late as 1944, U.S. action could have helped the 400,000 Jews of Hungary, most of whom then died at Auschwitz.
I would not disagree.
Take it up with Roosevelt and the rest of the socialists/commies he surrounded himself with.
The worst of that bunch (the so-called "Brain" Trust) was the evil Frances Perkins, who hated Jews as much she loved labor thugs and the minimum wage. She, as much as anyone in the Franklin Diablo Roosevelt dictatorship, is responsible for setting the stage for the likes of Hussein Obama.
“....partly because theyre worried about evangelicals establishing a Christian nation....”
But they’re not worried about their fellow muslim democrats establishing a sharia nation?
There is something BASICALLY screwed up in their thinking.
A little unfair. France was flattened as soon as the war broke out. What could they have done? Britain struggled to hold on to what it had throughout. And the US population at that time was strongly against military action, so a war before Pearl Harbor would have been one against our will. No wonder, since the New York Times covered up the Holocaust so nobody knew what was going on in Nazi Germany. All we knew about Hitler was that he was a TIME icon.
France participated, but they were under the hammer at the time. The U.K. did not act, but they were desperately fighting against the threat of a German invasion.
I would agree that FDR was the chief culprit. He knew damned well what was going on, but he refused to admit Jewish refugees and did nothing to defend them or call Hitler to account. He was the one who was in a position to do something. But he was anti-Semitic.
The lefties and the Jews hate to admit it, of course. FDR is their hero. So they refuse to talk about it.
I’m surprised that Netanyahu raised this issue. I suspect that it is intended as a jab in the direction of Obama and his pals, who likewise cannot be counted on to defend Israel.
And if the Hungarian Jewish “leadership” hadn’t sold out its own people - after having been warned by Rudi Vrba after his heroic escape from Auschwitz - instead they got their own families to safety and let everyone else be exterminated - the Jews of Hungary, if informed, could have resisted.
If “Jewish leadership” won’t save their own brethren, how can more be expected or demanded from anti-Semitic politicians?
FDR and the unions turned back refuge ships from Germany wanting to embark in the US. The refugees of course died when the got back. FDR in our family is anathema.
Until the allies had a foothold on the continent after D-Day, what could they have done?
We sure as hell didn’t do much to stop it.
The US refused the immigration of millions of Jews before it began.
The Germans loved their leader (Hitler) and so did Time Magazine.
Obama has taken his big stroke of arming militant Muslim terrorests in Seria; that places the US at odds with YEHOVA, and we will pay dearly for that.
Obama is indwelt by Satan!
To we Jews the lesson is clear. We must not be complacent in the face of threats of annihilation. We must not bury our heads in the sand or allow others to do the work for us.
From here, the place that attests to the desire to destroy us, I, the Prime Minister of Israel, the state of the Jewish People, say to all the nations of the world: The State of Israel will do whatever is necessary to prevent another holocaust.”
Hear oh Mullahs, hear Imams, the voice of the Jewish
people. Ams Israel Chai!
Netanyahu , the Ronald Reagan of Israel
Just think, IF Netanyahu was born in Kenya, he could be our president now.
The arguement is that they could have bombed the rail
lines to the camps and even the camps themselves.
The allies focus was the destruction of the Nazi war
machine, the jews paid the price.
Never have understood why some effort wasn’t made to
He was at the Holocaust memorial but his comments should also be taken in light of the current situation: the US is arming al Qaeda to overthrow Syria, Israel will soon be surrounded by Muslim Brotherhood countries put in place by...the West. He is telegraphing that if another 6 day war onslaught is tried Israel will stop at NOTHING to prevent their being pushed into the sea. Damascus is said to be destroyed in a single day, Isaiah 17. Israel knows with ObamaMuslim they are alone and the world has been warned.
Jews supported FDR with 90% of their votes in 1940 and 1945, which improved over the 82% in 1932, and the 85% in 1936, he was their guy.
I don’t know how my father was voting, he was pretty tied up with the war during that time, as the American Navy was fighting for survival.
If the democrats did something wrong during the 1930s and 1940s, in regards to Jews, it has never hurt them with the Jewish vote.
Demoncrat Jews be among the first slaughtered, along with homos, liberals, their women and children. They don’t even see it coming.
That’s why this admin consider us enemies.
Why are you lumping sodomites in with Jews? They have nothing whatsoever in common. If you're alluding to the Nazi reign of terror, the well-documented reality is that most of Hitler's most trusted advisers and confidants were homosexuals.
Bibi speaks the truth. A shameful chapter in America’s history. When the real King comes back he’s going to kick some serious butt. So don’t worry about Roosevelt (or Obama for that matter). Just make sure you and yours are on the Lord’s side and are faithful unto death - if necessary. What’s coming will melt every heart. “If the righteous scarcely be saved where will the ungodly and the sinner appear?”
Why are you lumping sodomites in with Jews? They have nothing whatsoever in common.
They are not muslims.
Yes, there is a better than even chance, that Damascus will eventually disappear under mushroom clouds. In the end times, I am sure that nucs will be thrown around with regularity.
That's my thinking as well.Also,I've heard it said that the decision was made at the highest levels that,given the circumstances,the best way to help the Jews was to win the war.I'm no military strategy expert (highest rank attained=SP5) but that sounds like a logical...realistic...approach.
They’re all Infidels. Sharia law will require all to be slaughtered to purify the new caliphate lands.
Granted my history is thin for this era, but as I currently understand it, Eastern European Jews began heavily immigrating to the U.S. in the 1880s. This wave of Jewish immigration was responsible for bring socialism to the U.S. and making it flourish in the unions. American natives got tired of it and pressured Congress to pass the Emergency Immigration Act of 1921 which heavily restricted new immigrants.
The SS St. Louis sailed from Germany in May 1939 carrying 936 (mainly German) Jewish refugees. On 4 June 1939, it was also refused permission to unload on orders of President Roosevelt as the ship waited in the Caribbean Sea between Florida and Cuba. Initially, Roosevelt showed limited willingness to take in some of those on board. But the Immigration Act of 1921 made that illegal and public opinion was strongly opposed. The ship returned to Europe. 620 of the passengers were eventually accepted in continental Europe, of these only 365 survived the Holocaust.
The Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965 (Hart-Celler Act, INS, Act of 1965, Pub.L. 89236) abolished the National Origins Formula that had been in place in the U.S. since the Emergency Quota Act of 1921. It was proposed by U.S. Representative Emanuel Celler (D-NY). His paternal grandparents and maternal grandmother were German Jews. This was the culminating moment in Celler's 41-year fight to overcome restriction on immigration to the U.S. based on national origin.
The Hart-Celler Act replaced the EQA with a preference system that focused on immigrants' skills and family relationships with citizens or U.S. residents. It marked a radical break from the immigration policies of the past. The law as it stood then excluded Asians and Africans and preferred northern and western Europeans over southern and eastern ones. At the height of the civil rights movement of the 1960s the law was seen as an embarrassment by, among others, POTUS #35 JFK, who called the then-quota-system "nearly intolerable". Some historians thought that JFK saw a chance for retaliation in response to the anti-Irish Catholic bigotry by WASPs he encountered as a younger man. After Kennedy's assassination, POTUS #36 LBJ signed the bill at the foot of the Statue of Liberty as a symbolic gesture. In order to convince the American populace - the majority of who were opposed to the act - of the legislation's merits, its liberal proponents assured that passage would not influence America's culture significantly. POTUS #36 LBJ called the bill "not revolutionary", SoS Dean Rusk estimated only a few thousand Indian immigrants over the next 5 years, and other politicians, including Senator Ted Kennedy, hastened to reassure the populace that the demographic mix would not be affected; these assertions would later prove wildly inaccurate.
What else was there to do, but win the war as quickly as possible?
I would dare say if France and England actually did something to help Poland in her hour of need, as they had promised, they could have at least slowed down Hitler.
Then they would have just shot them all like at Babi Yar.
He’s probably right. The lesson is, his country also shouldn’t count on our current worthless President, for ANYTHING.
You mean. "Voyage of the Damned."
They could have kept on fighting.
The French worked hand in glove with the Nazis.
FDR was more subtle, but the effect was the same.
Sporadic reports during the time of the killing fields in Cambodia also elicited nothing from the west or the peanut farmer. Recall the Rwandan slaughter when the toon did absolutely nothing or worse. FDR sort of set a template no?
Yes, England and France were not entirely blameless. Nobody was blameless.
It was a bit off topic, but I nearly said in my earlier post that that, unlike the French, many Poles did plenty to help the Jews, even though they were under the hammer of both Hitler and Stalin.
Typically, the left continues to blame the Pope and the Poles for the Holocaust, although they both did what they could to help the Jews, but they never mention the culpability of FDR. Sure, some of the worst death camps were in Poland, but that was because the Nazis found it convenient to put them there. They killed millions of Poles in the camps, as well as Jews.
From Edwin Black’s War Against the Weak:
Eventually, Americas eugenic movement spread to Germany as well, where it caught the fascination of Adolf Hitler and the Nazi movement. Under Hitler, eugenics careened beyond any American eugenicists dream. National Socialism transduced Americas quest for a superior Nordic race into Hitlers drive for an Aryan master race. The Nazis were fond of saying National Socialism is nothing but applied biology, and in 1934 the Richmond Times-Dispatch quoted a prominent American eugenicist as saying, The Germans are beating us at our own game.
Nazi eugenics quickly outpaced American eugenics in both velocity and ferocity. In the 1930s, Germany assumed the lead in the international movement. Hitlers eugenics was backed by brutal decrees, custom-designed IBM data processing machines, eugenical courts, mass sterilization mills, concentration camps, and virulent biological anti-Semitismall of which enjoyed the open approval of leading American eugenicists and their institutions. The cheering quieted, but only reluctantly, when the United States entered the war in December of 1941. Then, out of sight of the world, Germanys eugenic warriors operated extermination centers. Eventually, Germanys eugenic madness led to the Holocaust, the destruction of the Gypsies, the rape of Poland and the decimation of all Europe.
But none of Americas far-reaching scientific racism would have risen above ignorant rants without the backing of corporate philanthropic largess.
Within these pages you will discover the sad truth of how the scientific rationales that drove killer doctors at Auschwitz were first concocted on Long Island at the Carnegie Institutions eugenic enterprise at Cold Spring Harbor. You will see that during the prewar Hitler regime, the Carnegie Institution, through its Cold Spring Harbor complex, enthusiastically propagandized for the Nazi regime and even distributed anti-Semitic Nazi Party films to American high schools. And you will see the links between the Rockefeller Foundations massive financial grants and the German scientific establishment that began the eugenic programs that were finished by Mengele at Auschwitz.
The US / UK could have bombed / sabotaged the railroad tracks, all support systems leading to the camps, assassinated the camp commanders. There was much that could have been done. But FDR and his crew did not give a sh*t about the Jews. One of, if not the worst chapter of American history.
Today we have another Holocaust - Sudan. What is the US doing about this? What is the US doing to prevent Africa from falling into the hands of Islamic Jihad? Read what's going on here: South Sudan News
I’m sure that the muzzie terrorists that Obummer plans to admit will do less harm to us than those Jews.
He is mostly right, but he makes it sound like they knew the extent of it from the time it started and we could have had boots on the ground any time we wanted.
How much sooner does he think D-Day could have been advanced?
Stalin was the “ally” closest to the situation
He’s wrong. The leaders of the Allies ‘heard’ 2nd and 3rd hand that atrocities were said to be occurring in special Nazi detainment camps. FDR was not going to launch a military strike against a major power based on hearsay.
Even the villagers around the concentration camps were not fully aware of the genocide that was taking place. Many commented in interviews that they noticed acrid smells in the air coming from the camps but they had no firsthand information of what was taking place.
We can bet that the Nazis did not disclose what they were doing, we know from the historical record that when the Nazis were questioned through diplomatic channels that they denied the allegations. So how is it that anyone ‘knew’ except for third party reports and rumors?
There was an undercurrent in the USA at the time of anti-semitism but there was never tolerance of any kind among America’s greatest generation for the diabolical extermination of fellow human beings. Bibi should be ashamed of his implicating good people in something so horrific.
Bibi should not have said the Allied Leaders ‘knew’, he should have said they ‘heard about’ or were ‘warned’ or ‘told’, and could not under the circumstances do much. His message is that Israel cannot count on the US Cavalry to ride to the rescue or any such fantasy rescue. In much the same way that American citizens do not allow themselves to think the local police will save them from local attack and therefore take up arms to defend themselves, the Israeli population must not be lulled into thinking that some NATO nuclear force or US anti-missile shield will save them from a nuclear missile attack from Iran. Bibi was correct on this, wrong on implicating good Americans in the Holocaust.
