    The Allied Powers knew about the Holocaust two and a half years before they intervened, newly accessed documents show, according to a report in the UK’s Independent newspaper. The U.S., the UK and the Soviet governments had even prepared war crime charges against Adolf Hitler and head Nazis, aware that at least two million Jews had been killed and another five million were under threat, but in the end did little to stem the bloodletting. “The major powers commented [on the Holocaust] two-and-a-half years before it is generally assumed,” Dan Plesch, the author of “Human Rights After Hitler,” told The...

    Hemlock Society Founder Pushes for Euthanasia of Mentally Ill People by Wesley J. Smith | LifeNews.com | 11/5/13 10:37 AM It really is astounding how the media continue to assume that assisted suicide/euthanasia is only for the terminally ill.HereÂ’s the latest example: Hemlock Society founder Derek Humphry was in Arizona advocating for assisted suicide for the mentally ill, and Arizona Star columnist Tim Steller is shocked!From the article: If you think the idea of assisted suicide is controversial, welcome to the farthest frontier in the debate.

    Israel on Monday slammed statements by French far-right presidential contender Marine Le Pen suggesting that France was not responsible for the roundup of Jews at a stadium in Paris during World War II. “I don’t think France is responsible for the Vel d’Hiv,” she told RTL radio on Sunday, referring to the Paris cycling stadium where 13,000 Jews were rounded up in July 1942 before being sent to Nazi death camps. "I think that generally speaking if there are people responsible, it's those who were in power at the time. It's not France," National Front party leader Le Pen told...

    Anyone remember this from the Cairo leg of the Obama 2009 Apology Tour: Obama equated the Holocaust to Palestinian “dislocation.” In his words: “The Jewish people were persecuted. . . . anti-Semitism . . . culminated in an unprecedented Holocaust. . . . Six million Jews were killed. . . . On the other hand, it is also undeniable that the Palestinian people — Muslims and Christians — have suffered in pursuit of a homeland.” This parallelism amounts to the fictitious Arab narrative that the deliberate mass murder of six million Jews for the crime of being Jewish is analogous...

    Archer Shurtliff and Jordan April, both 17, felt “weird” when in February they received an assignment asking students to argue for the extermination of Jewish people. The words “TOP SECRET” were stamped across the top in red. The “memorandum,” first posted online and addressed to senior Nazi party members, asked students to put themselves in the shoes of Adolf Hitler’s top aides. Archer and Jordan, who are not Jewish, wondered if they understood the assignment correctly. Did their teacher, Michael DeNobile, really mean for his students to argue in favor of the “Final Solution,” the Nazis’ justification for genocide? During...

    Okay, this  is pure gold I gotta share. I know its Sunday but this needs to be shared especially with atheists and skeptics who ridicule the faithful, say Christians are menace, a nuisance and so on. You think those of us who seek the lord and who are Christian are a threat equal to Islamic jihad? THINK AGAIN... This was shared with me by a friend. On a satanic forum called the 600 club, the satanists have basically advocated that all the homeless and disabled are parasites. For the homeless, the alternatives to mandatory excution are either A.

    Muslim students mocking the Holocaust, inciting violence against Jews, delegitimizing the existence of Israel, and pushing a false Palestinian and “Islamophobia” victimhood narrative has become commonplace. The media is trying desperately to portray President Trump as responsible for antisemitism in the U.S.; in reality, they should be looking at Students for Justice in Palestine and its allied groups. And now this hatred has even entered schools for the youngest children. Nancy Salem, who is quoted in the article below, taught at The Children’s Courtyard in South Arlington, Texas. Salem was also “a member of the UTA chapter of Students for...

    President Donald Trump wants to drain the swamp. Well here's the perfect place to start. Remember this name: Ben Rhodes. I’ll get back to Ben in a moment. He is the centerpiece to Obama’s final vicious attack on Israel. Obama made many shocking, damaging attacks on Israel. The list is so long it would take me an entire book to list them all.Need proof? It accelerated in his final days. It was as if he had to show his true hatred for Israel with his last official acts.Many Americans know Obama allowed the United Nations and their anti-Semite representatives to condemn Israel for...

    Thuringia’s state parliament has marked International Holocaust Remembrance Day without regional Alternative for Germany (AfD) leader Björn Höcke. He was uninvited. State parliamentary speaker Christian Carius told Höcke that his presence at the event would be seen as a provocation. Höcke accepted the decision, Carius said in his opening remarks. The state parliament had invited survivors from the Buchenwald concentration camp near Weimar. Höcke was also excluded from Thursday’s wreath-laying ceremony at the camp. His speech last week in which he labeled Berlin’s Holocaust Memorial a “monument of shame” provoked angry reactions, also within his own party. “He needs a...

    OSWIECIM, Poland (JTA) — I did a shameful thing on my first visit 20 years ago to the former Nazi death camp of Auschwitz-Birkenau. In a guestbook outside an Auschwitz museum exhibit featuring information on 70,000 Polish non-Jews who were murdered here, I downplayed the significance of their deaths by writing: “Your pain is no credential here, it’s just the shadow of my wound.” Those words — a quote from a Leonard Cohen song that I abused as a high school student from Israel while touring the camp that my grandmother had survived — resurfaced in my consciousness last month...

    (excerpt) And while planning for the program began almost two years ago, it happened to align with the episodes of hate and racism that came before and after the presidential election, which, teachers said, made the program all the more impactful for students. “In terms of the timing, it just really worked out,” said Kate McGerity a teacher at Rancho Cotate who taught the program to her 10th-grade world history students. “It worked as kind of a platform or a jumping off place to responding to prejudice, and the kind of hatreds we’re seeing — the wall building idea, the...

    Egyptian human rights activist Hany Elsadek recently defended Hitler, saying that what he did was "no worse than what France did in Algeria." In two video-clips that he posted on his social media accounts on October 31 and November 8, Elsadeq, who heads the "Middle East for Rights and Freedoms," said that Hitler got his reputation in the media as an arch-killer "because he exposed the truth about the Jews." Holding up a Arabic-language copy of "Mein Kampf," he claimed that Hitler, "a respectable man who loved his country," had killed only four or five thousand Jews, but that they...

    The publication of Thomas Keneally’s book Schindler’s Ark (1982) and the release of the Steven Spielberg Oscar-winning film “Schindler’s List” (1993), made the basic story of Oskar Schindler widely known. German industrialist, Nazi Party member, war profiteer, alcoholic, and shameless womanizer, Schindler (1908-1974) was both a cynical, greedy exploiter of slave workers and an authentic Holocaust hero best known for risking his life and spending his entire fortune during World War II to save over 1,200 Jews by employing them at his Krakow enamelware factory and protecting them by bribing German officials. When the Nazis invaded Poland in 1939, the...
