A jihadi throws a shoe near the Downing Street residence of Britain's Prime Minister Gordon Brown today at a huge protest against the Jews
It is hard to believe that while Shoah victims and holocaust survivors still walk among us, that we would witness an evil so severe and grotesque that it would make the rhetoric of the Third Reich look mild.
Yes, the Nazis killed millions -- that was the obvious monstrous result of their campaign.
We have not yet witnessed the "final solution" of Islamic jihad -- but there are incontrovertible facts that are blinding. The Nazis hid their crimes. The Nazis pretended to be doing one thing while subversively carrying out its "extermination" of Jews, gypsies, "undesirables", etc. They engaged in rhetoric and obfuscation.
This time is different. The Muslims are not engaging in rhetoric. They are not pretending. They want the Jews dead and they exult in their wild screams of blood lust. Such joy, such happiness at their Jew hating chants from a joyless people.
The Germans went to war, conquered countries and with the help of those weak governments and people annihilated the Jews. The Holocaust was a German initiative subsequently carried out by every nation the Nazis conquered in Europe, with the exception of Denmark.
It's not a national initiative this time. It's global........... a wave of evil has washed over this earth like a veritable tsunami and it has colored everything.
I expect this barbarity and Jew hatred from the Arab/Islamic world. It's what they do and what they have always done.
But what was the lesson that Europe learned after the holocaust? It was not that evil is bad and that they behaved like monsters, but, as Caroline Glick said in our interview, that " rather that everything was caused by nationalism and therefore what we really need to do is have a European Union that will obviate our need for nationalism so that we can become this transnational gobbletygook and we'll all get together and therefore we won't have another Auschwitz". But really the lesson the Europeans should have been is that "we were evil and we have to be good. And that is the lesson we have to learn and and we have to be able and willing to make moral distinctions and stand up for the good and fight evil and that is something the Europeans refuse to do."
Once again Europe chooses to embrace madness and evil as its central unifying characteristic. And this time England is leading the way.
I believe good will triumph over such overwhelming odds and numbers. I know it in my bones, but one has to look at the global landscape and say, at what cost?
LONDON (Reuters) – Thousands of chanting, banner-waving demonstrators marched in cities across Europe on Saturday to demand a halt to Israeli bombing in the Gaza Strip.
Protests were held or scheduled in Britain, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands and Spain as the Israeli offensive entered its second week. Kuwaitis also took to the streets, a day after bigger Middle East rallies.
In Paris, police said more than 20,000 demonstrators, many wearing Palestinian keffiyeh headscarves, marched through the city center chanting slogans like "Israel murderer!" and waving banners demanding an end to the air attacks.
Similar protests were planned in some 30 other towns.
London police said more than 10,000 people staged a noisy march and rally to urge an end to an Israeli offensive against Hamas militants that has killed at least 435 Palestinians.
In many European cities people waved shoes -- recalling the action of an Iraqi journalist who hurled footwear at U.S. President George W. Bush in Baghdad last month in a symbolic insult.
British demonstrators threw dozens of shoes into the street as they passed the gated entrance to Downing Street, where Prime Minister Gordon Brown lives, and shouted angrily at a line of 40 police officers on guard there.
Paul Mukerji, 42, from Birmingham, acknowledged Israel had security reasons but called its action disproportionate.
Who dictates the proportion? The jihadis?
"The best way for peace for Palestinians and Israelis is to end the occupation," said Mukerji, who said he had spent six months working with Jewish and Palestinian peace groups.
What occupation? There has not been an Israeli toenail in Gaza since 2005. All lies, lies lies.
Ali Saeed, 24, from Luton, said Western governments had failed to condemn Israel's actions.
Failure to condemn self defense? The will to live?

The commonality of despising the Jews sure brings out the godless.
UPDATE: BERLIN, GERMANY: SWASTIKAS ON HOLOCAUST MEMORIAL Associated (with terrorists) Press
BERLIN (AP) -- Berlin police say vandals have daubed swastikas on some of the slabs that make up the German capital's Holocaust memorial.
"DAUBED"? WTF kind of word is that? An AP kinda word.
A police statement says security guards discovered the swastikas and anti-Semitic slogans on 12 slabs Saturday lunchtime. Authorities ordered the graffiti's swift removal.
The memorial to the Holocaust's 6 million Jewish victims consists of a field of 2,700 gray slabs situated close to the capital's Brandenburg Gate.
It opened to the public in 2005 and is freely accessible around the clock. Similar vandalism has occurred on several previous occasions.
"occasions" WTF kind of word is that?
AMSTERDAM: An Atlas reader in Holland sent these translations: the sign reads in Dutch "Anne Frank draait zich om in haar graf, oh Israel " in English "Anne Frank turns herself around in her grave, oh Israel." This is a Dutch expression - the English equivalent would be Anne Frank is spinning in her grave. Yes, I am sure she is.
"Israel herhaalt de Holocaust met de steun van Nederland." Translation: "Israel is repeating the Holocaust with support from the Netherlands".
