Jews - the lie must stop! Genocide denial is unconscionable coming from Jewish quarters. I expect it from Islam - it's what they do to advance the installation of the caliphate. It is their obligation to conquer, kill destroy to advance Islam.
Jews bear witness to evil - it defines us. Foxman and his dhimmi ilk must be ostracized, vanquished of their power.
Charles Jacobs, a national treasure, tells it like it is in the advocate;
JEWISH WITNESS TO AREMENIAN GENOCIDE Charles Jacobs
Jews, it turns out, were among the first to fathom, chronicle and warn the world about the Armenian genocide. Henry Morgenthau, U.S. Ambassador to Turkey (1913-1916), summed up the horrors unfolding before him: “The government is using its present opportunity … to obliterate the Armenian race.”
The response of Absalom Feinberg, a Jew working for British intelligence, reprinted in Andrew Bostom’s indispensable “The Legacy of Jihad,” should guide our actions today:
He notes the slaughter’s enormity: “… the Turks have promised that only 500,000 of the 2,500,000 Armenians living in the empire will be left … one sees long files of young and old men … in forced labor … old men, old women, children … pursued along the [railway] line. No bread, clothing or cloth on their heads against sun or cold … it is forbidden to give alms to this hapless people.”
He rails against the jihadi practice of enslaving captives: “Do you know what was done with the young girls and young women … THEY HAVE BEEN SOLD! … Very small girls torn from their mothers, young brides taken from their husbands, young girl ‘kaffirs’ [infidels] become the slaves of the debauchery of the ‘faithful!’”
He chides the powerful Christian world for its silence on this Muslim slaughter of its spiritual brethren, and he sees that he, because he is a Jew, must speak out to save Christians – notwithstanding centuries of Christian persecution of Jews:
“Since those [Christians] who … sometimes claim a monopoly of works of Love, of Charity … are silent, there is need once again for a son of the Old Race who disregards the Pain, overcomes the Torture, or denies the Death which for twenty centuries …[Christians] offered to us.”
He shrieks at the world’s cowardly silence: “Look! You who refuse to open your eyes.”
Finally, to overcome a Jew’s fear to speak against Islamic terror, he invokes Jewish morality: “Ecclesiastes says: ‘A time to keep silence, and a time to speak … as honest people, should one not speak out, and is it a young, rebellious Jew who must do it?!”
UPDATE 9/1/07: Dr. Bostom lays it out brutally. The Jewish lay leadership has
failed the diaspora for far too long. While this latest act of
capitulation and submission may seem shocking, it is not. It is the
natural progression of Jewicidal thinking. Either we demand they speak
truth, however ugly, or we throw the bums out. They represent the worst
of Jews. Genocide is genocide .........who better than us?
Turkish Antisemitism and Jewish Dhimmitude Dr.Andrew Bostom, American Thinker
The 16th century dhimmi Jewish leadership's deliberate misrepresentation of the actual plight of Ottoman Jewry was described by Hacker with obvious contempt. Tragically, and in our modern era, inexcusably, this pathological behavior persists five centuries later among contemporary Jewish leadership elites, who appear incapable of identifying, let alone adequately defending against, the resurgence of jihadist Islam in Turkey. Gifted writer Diana West's evocative language depicts the ultimate outcome if this self-destructive dhimmitude is not reversed: "in denial there is defeat."
But a liberating victory can still be achieved if the leadership of the Turkish Jewish community, Israel, and American Jewish advocacy groups simply muster the intellectual courage to overcome their own craven denial. Collectively galvanized, they could confront Erdogan's AKP government over the ugly living legacy of anti-dhimmi and Antisemitic discrimination against Turkey's Jews, and demand immediate efforts at amelioration of their plight: marginalization and legal punishment of Turkish politicians and public intellectuals whose discourse incites Jew-hatred, and potentially, anti-Jewish violence; the implementation of concrete reforms, ensuring in practice equal rights, opportunities, and public safety for Jews. And if all these measures were not implemented rapidly, with tangible evidence of success, Turkey's Jews would be allowed unfettered, mass emigration without any economic penalties.
Such bold, forthright action -- joint "anti-dhimmitude" -- would put an end to the ongoing phenomenon of a vestigial de facto dhimmi Jewish community of Turkey (via its dhimmi leadership) and American Jews hostage to the whims of an oppressive Turkish government, in the throes of a transformative fundamentalist Islamic revival.
