A look at the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions Movement
2015 was a year of phenomenal growth for the BDS movement.
An article recently appearing in The Times of Israel highlights a poll conducted in Israel which found that “over 80% of Israelis think the Holocaust will one day fade from memory,” according to the article. The article continues:
The survey was conducted by The Center of Organizations of Holocaust Survivors ahead of Israel’s Holocaust Remembrance Day, marked April 16, in an attempt to glean contemporary perceptions surrounding the Holocaust in Jewish-Israeli society, the NRG news site reported Wednesday.
Five hundred Jewish-Israeli adults were canvassed for the study.
Asked whether the Holocaust will lose its significance as the seminal catastrophe of modern times and fade into history as “just another event,” 36.6% of respondents said the matter was a certainty, 45% said that it may happen, and only 17.5% responded that such a situation would not transpire.
Asked, however, if the public memory of the Holocaust influences everyday decision making in the private and public spheres in Israel, 42.2% answered in affirmative. Ten point one percent said the memory of the Holocaust has personal resonance only, while 26.9% responded that it only dictates national policy. Just 15.5% of respondents said that the memory of the Holocaust has no influence. […]
The head of the organization behind the study believes the findings indicate a worrying trend in which the lessons of World War II will hold little significance for future generations — a course that should be counteracted with a rethink of Holocaust education in the Jewish state.
“It’s hard to think what would happen when the last [remaining] Holocaust survivors will no longer be with us,” Colette Avital, chairwoman of the Center of Organizations of Holocaust Survivors, said.
“This data should worry the country’s leaders and all those who [believe in] the continuity of Jewish history,” she said.
Unfortunately, given the organized Jewish community’s highly effective marketing and public relations campaign centered around the promotion and perpetuation of the false “Holocaust” narrative of WWII, I very much doubt this anti-White, anti-German narrative of history will “lose its significance as the seminal catastrophe of modern times,” as many Israelis polled apparently believe.
Not a day goes by without a mention or invocation of some aspect of the fake “Holocaust” story. Virtually every single year, one or more movies based on the “Holocaust” are made, often receiving high praise and even Academy Awards. The false “Holocaust” narrative is constantly reinforced and perpetuated through “Holocaust survivor” testimony, memoirs, books, plays, and through the Western educational system. One cannot avoid it. The “Holocaust” is rammed down our throats, stuffed into our brains, and implanted and reinforced in our minds every single day practically.
Indeed, the entire New World Order agenda, which in reality is simply a Jewish plot to enslave the world politically, economically, and culturally, destroying racial consciousness and national distinctions in the process while creating a world of mindless consumers and workers, is largely based on implementing the “lessons of the Holocaust,” as Jewish leaders have openly declared.
“The Holocaust stands as Western Civilization’s greatest failure,” Ian Kagedan, former National Director of Government Relations of B’nai Brith Canada, wrote in a 1991 Toronto Star op-ed piece entitled Memory of the Holocaust Central to New World Order. “It was a natural outcome of centuries of racism and of anti-Semitism. To deny the Holocaust is to deny racism’s capacity to undercut our civilization’s basic values and to destroy democracy. Achieving our quest of a ‘new world order’ depends on our learning the Holocaust’s lessons.”
We would be foolish indeed to think our Jewish overlords and traitorous politicians would allow us to “forget about the Holocaust” and the “important lessons” it has taught humanity.
A visit to the grave of mass-murderer Baruch Goldstein

Commenters on the conflict often speak of the grave of Baruch Goldstein, the Jewish extremist who gunned down 29 Muslims inside the Mosque of Ibrahim in Hebron in 1994. Jeff Klein recently visited the grave. This account appeared on his site, At a slight angle to the universe, on June 22.
On a hillside in the settlement of Kiryat Arba, overlooking the large West Bank Palestinian city of al-Khalil — known to Israeli Jews and most foreigners by its biblical name of “Hebron” – is the grave monument of Dr. Baruch Goldstein.
On the Jewish holiday of Purim, February 25, 1994, Goldstein, then a reserve officer in the Israeli army, walked into the Mosque of Ibrahim (the traditional burial place of the Patriarch Abraham) in uniform and with his army-issued weapon, opening fire on the Muslim worshippers. 29 people were murdered outright and 125 wounded before the survivors managed to disarm Goldstein and kill him on the spot.
For many far-right Israeli Jews and especially the settler movement Goldstein was a martyr to the cause of religious Zionism. His grave in a ceremonial plaza overlooking the Palestinian town became a place of pilgrimage and celebration – to the great embarrassment of the Israeli government and many of its supporters in the US.
The ceremonial plaza around the grave was ordered dismantled, but the park and monumental walkway leading up to his grave remain in place. The park is dedicated to Meir Kahane, the US-born rabbi who was a founder of the violent Jewish Defense League and later the leader of the fascist Kach party — which was so openly racist that it was eventually banned in Israel. Kahane was assassinated in New York in 1990, but today you can still find stickers and graffiti around Israel with the slogan “Kahane Lives” or in English “Kahane Was Right!”
The Hebrew inscription on Goldstein’s grave monument reads, in part:
“The revered Dr. Baruch Kapel Goldstein… Son of Israel. He gave his soul for the sake of the people of Israel, The Torah, and the Land. His hands are clean and his heart good… He was assassinated for the Sanctity of God”
The stones on the grave are customarily left by visitors to express their mourning.
During the annual observance of the Purim holiday, settlers gather at Goldstein’s grave to celebrate his deed and sing songs in praise of the man they regard as a noble martyr. One of the songs includes the verse: “Dr. Goldstein, there is none other like you in the world. Dr. Goldstein, we all love you… he aimed at terrorists’ heads, squeezed the trigger hard, and shot bullets, and shot, and shot.”
Then the settlers march down to pray at the Mosque/Synagogue of Abraham, accompanied by a massive show of force by Israeli army troops.
The 1994 Hebron Massacre launched a fierce outburst of violence in Israel and the Occupied Territories, which included the first suicide bombings carried out by Hamas within the 1948 borders.
But in this case (Jewish) terrorism worked. The ancient burial place of the Patriarchs, which had been converted into a mosque over a thousand years earlier was now divided into a Muslim and a Jewish section and made accessible to Jewish worshipers and foreign tourists.
Ironically, it’s impossible for anyone to visit both parts of the shrine at a single occasion, since people approaching the heavy security at the shrine must declare their religious affiliation and are allowed into one or the other section depending on their answer. Muslims are not allowed into the Jewish section and Jews are not allowed into the Muslim section. Non-Jewish tourists can choose one or the other, but not both. (I know this from a previous visit with my son to the Mosque side).
On the day I was there, a large group of Swedish tourists, the men sporting incongruously small white Jewish kippot (“yarmilkas”) given to them at the entrance. Jewish religious law does not require non-Jews to have their heads covered.
Meanwhile religious Jewish yeshiva students were chanting fervently and loudly just behind them.
