LibDem MP David Ward says Jews are Nazis – why can’t they be cossacks or Egyptians?

by | 26th, January 2013

IN readiness for Holocaust Memorial Day,   LibDem MP David Ward  takes to his  website  to call the Jews Nazis:

“Having visited Auschwitz twice – once with my family and once with local schools – I am saddened that the Jews, who suffered unbelievable levels of persecution during the Holocaust, could within a few years of liberation from the death camps be inflicting atrocities on Palestinians in the new State of Israel and continue to do so on a daily basis in the West Bank and Gaza.”

He then adds:

“It appears that the suffering by the Jews has not transformed their views on how others should be treated”

Those barbaric Jews, eh. Will they never learn?
Can it be possible for anyone sane and not bigoted to compare the industrial murder of millions to Gaza? It is an egregious insult designed to hurt Jews and undermine their history. Israel’s population is 20% Arab. Their equal rights are enshrined in law. They are in Israel’s Army, football team and Parliament. But Ward’s not talking about Israel. He’s talking about those bloodthirsty Jews.
Why are the Jews always Nazis? Why can’t they be the Cossaks, Crusaders, Egyptians, Papists or any group that has attacked them? Why always the Nazis?
We’ve been here before. The Spectator   published a few words on Holocaust Memorial Day by Anthony Lipmann:

I will think not just of the crematoria and the cattle trucks but of Darfur, Rwanda, Zimbabwe, Jenin, Fallujah.

Adding:

“What would I have done?” I ask myself. “What should I be doing now? What am I doing for those being persecuted today – among them the Palestinians, who are suffering at the hands of Jews? But for a turn of fate, could I have been a Nazi too?… This little band of 600 [Holocaust survivors attending a reception hosted by the Queen] has a terrible responsibility – to live well in the name of those who did not live and to discourage the building of walls and bulldozing of villages.

Jewish Holocaust survivors are held to account for Israel? And Jenin ? Mark Steyn wrote about it:
Jenin? Would that be the notorious 2002 “Jenin massacre”? There was no such thing, as I pointed out in this space at the time, when Robert Fisk and the rest of Fleet Street’s gullible sob-sisters were going around weepin’ an’ a-wailin’ about Palestinian mass graves and Israeli war crimes. Twenty-three Israelis were killed in fighting at the Jenin camp. Fifty-two Palestinians died, according to the Israelis. According to Arafat’s official investigators, it was 56 Palestinians. Even if one accepts the higher figure, that means every single deceased Palestinian could have his own mass grave and there’d still be room to inter the collected works of Robert Fisk. Yet, despite the fact that the Jenin massacre is an obvious hallucination of Fleet Street’s Palestine groupies, its rise to historical fact is unstoppable. To Lipmann, those 52-56 dead Palestinians weigh in the scales of history as heavy as six million Jews. And what’s Fallujah doing bringing up the rear in his catalogue of horrors? In rounding up a few hundred head-hackers, the Yanks perpetrated another Auschwitz? These comparisons are so absurd as to barely qualify as “moral equivalence”.

… The reality is that the nation states of the region all date back to the 1930s and 1940s: the only difference is that Israel, unlike Syria and Iraq, has made a go of it.

As for the notion that this or that people “deserve” a state, that’s a dangerous post-modern concept of nationality and sovereignty. The United States doesn’t exist because the colonists “deserved” a state, but because they went out and fought for one. Were the Palestinians to do that, they might succeed in pushing every last Jew into the sea, or they might win a less total victory, or they might be routed and have to flee to Damascus or Wolverhampton.

But, whatever the outcome, it’s hard to see that they would be any less comprehensively a wrecked people than they are after spending three generations in “refugee” “camps” while their “cause” is managed by a malign if impeccably multilateral coalition of UN bureaucrats, cynical Arab dictators, celebrity terrorists and meddling Europeans whose Palestinian fetishisation seems most explicable as the perverse by-product of the suppression of their traditional anti-Semitism.

There is a very good account of the British media’s race to believe the worst of the Jews in Jenin here and here. The Guardian went to town  on the ‘massacre’.
Note: The Palestinian nationalist movement was by Nazi agent Haj Amin el Husseini. Mahmoud Abbas is a Holocaust denier. Calling Jews Nazis is loaded to appeal to racists and cause offence.

  • 10 mil jews died in the camps no wait it was 9 million no wait it was 6 million o mabee 4 million any way they have locked the palastine into one big getto and rape and kill the women and murder the men

  • Got any data for the organised State-rape of Gaza? Maybe the Jews can be like the Japanse in Nanking or the nutters in Rwanda? It wold be progress. From the all-time low of being Nazis, things are looking up for the Jews…

    Like all Homo Sapiens, we’ve all got to hate some one. You kill off the competition
    then you start on your neighbours and finish with your family.

    It’s just so lovely, living in Gaza. That’s why Anorak is relocating there, just to prove you all wrong.

  • dairy

    it is just too easy for someone of limited intelligence to hate anyone or anything which is different to themselves and the consequences can be devastating, as we see all over the world, not just in the Middle East. A sorry state indeed….

    Anti-semetic dinner parties? It’s all Islamophobia in Blighty these days. Israeli’s don’t get a look in except with the journos. It probably helps having an army of Israeli astro-turfers silencing online public indignation with a press of the abuse button, whenever Israel makes the news.

    Judaism is NOT Zionism . It is a very slick and sick trick to try to tie in anti-Zionism as being anti-semitic.
    Zionism is predicated upon an ethnically cleansed Palestine/Israel, just as South Africa Apartheid , Australia, and the founding of America. Stop ignoring Theodor Herzl’s clear teachings- ” Israel is to be rid of Arabs”. Isn’t that the racism of Zionism ?
    Should the racism of Zionist ruling Israel be condemmed ? Yes !!
    I am anti Zionism, just as I am anti-racism. Read Herzl and see.
    Read Yoseff Weitz and Ben-Gurion- Judaism is NOT racism and Zionism is not Judaism.
