One response to “The Holocaust: The Darkness and the Light

  1. [2] Since today’s topic is THE HOLOCAUST, these quotes are relevant:
    ===================================

    Harvard Law Professor Alan M. Dershowitz said:

    “Too few of Israel’s critics seem to understand
    the Jewish determination to avoid
    another Holocaust, this one in Israel.

    Too few understand why Israel cannot and
    should not trust its survival to nations that stood
    idly by while millions of innocent Jews were destroyed.

    Too many nations seem willing to have Israel
    take risks for an uncertain regional peace that
    they themselves are unwilling to take for a
    more important world peace.”

    ===================================

    Harvard Law Professor Alan M. Dershowitz said:

    “…if Israel’s military power were ever to be diminished
    to the point that the combined armies of the Arab world
    could defeat it, I believe there would be another Holocaust.

    No Arab dictator who could defeat Israel and forebore
    from doing so would survive the continuing frenzy
    for jihad [Islamic holy war against non-Muslims].

    And an Arab military victory over Israel – unlike
    the Israeli victories over the Arabs – would not
    result in a mere occupation or even detention of Israeli Jews.

    It would result in a mass slaughter,
    designed to rid Arab holy land of Jewish intruders.

    Most Jews know this, though they rarely speak of it openly.”
