My uncle, who teaches about the Holocaust in South Florida, still bears the tattoos given to him by the Nazi's. He has small hands, which the Nazi's deemed good for cleaning artillery shells, so they kept him alive. A reminder to him, that he was nothing more than a useful animal to them.
But there is another side to this that is often forgotten - G-d heard our cries when we refused to surrender. When we refused to bow to the mental sickness that is Nazism, He saved us again.
With an outstretched hand, He reached out through our brothers & sisters from across the Atlantic, who rallied in defense of Godliness and Righteousness. It is not the Jewish people who were destroyed ultimately, but the Nazi party. Crushed under the treads of armored steel, bombed into rumble from the air, the devastation of their civilization was catastrophic.
To forget the many important lessons from this event in the course of history would be to let millions of people die in vein. Jews, who rather die, than betray their own beliefs.
In America, we have a great deal of Jews who don't think twice about this, because it's part of their overall abandonment of G-d. They see nothing but bitterness, a desire to blame G-d for what they see as his lack of involvement in human affairs.
Take Debbie-Wasserman Schultz for instance, who the DNC rolls out to be an expert on Judaic issues. She's not. This is a women who believes in abortion, for any reason, right to birth. Her histrionic reaction to Scott Walker's right to life bill, which was a cavalier analogy to real domestic abuse, she had to walk back. There is no doubt that she strongly supports PlannedParenthood, and has been noticeably silent as the videos of their selling of baby body organs has stirred the national attitude.
This is not one who is exposing Jewish values at all. Abortion is a pagan value. One in which the person feelings outweigh the innocent babies right to life.
The commands in the Torah are clear- Hashem detests the destruction of innocent life. Above all, the right to life is supreme.
It's no surprise, that the Torah makes specific references to tribes that destroy their own children. These tribes are evil incarnate, deserving of G-d's wrath.
"Not to pass a child through the fire to Molech (Lev. 18:21) (negative)."
"Always to remember what Amalek did (Deut. 25:17) (CCA76)."
"That the evil done to us by Amalek shall not be forgotten (Deut. 25:19) (CCN194)."
Clearly, Debbie-Wasserman Schultz does not represent Jewish values. Whatever values they are, they are not Godly in the least.
Her demand that Huckabee apologizes for his comments is frankly absurd.
Not to mention, it shows how much she knows about her fellow Jews feelings, particularly those in Israel who are almost uniformly against the Iran Deal. She seems, like the rest of her party, to be purposeful ignorant of the common opposition to this deal.
It's time that the Democrats stop being the only ones allowed to stand on the graves of the dead. They feel free to use events like Charleston and Ferguson to bully people on every issue they don't like. They do not define which tragedies are ok to talk about, and which ones are not.
So no, they do not own the rights to the Holocaust. In fact, this Democrat party is closer to the National Socialism that was once at the heart of the National Socialist German Workers Party, known in short as Nazi's, that caused the Holocaust in the first place.
If they can't take their own medicine, too bad.
