Since the late 1970s “Holocaust Remembrance” has become ever more important in the
This year, the memorial was as big as the honouring of the troops at the Cenotaph for Canadian troops on Nov.11. And they still touted the 6 000 000 dead and laid a wreath. When I was young this was not done. Only in the last year or two has this event become televised and treated so religiously. This creation of the myth only really began to kick into gear after Lyndon Johnson, Jewish, became US President. One "survivor" actually brought out the false bars of soap to a group of children in Grade 5. This particular hoax was admitted to be just that ~ a hoax.
Every major American city has at least one Holocaust museum or memorial. Worldwide there are more than 250 Holocaust museums and memorials, most of them in the
The largest is the US Holocaust Memorial Museum in
Meanwhile for the 80 000 000 killed by the Jews and others in WW2, a 10 foot statue on a busy street!
The public is continually reminded of Jewish suffering during World War II. Between 1989 and 2003 alone, more than 170 films with Holocaust themes were made. 
In many American and European schools, and in all Israeli classrooms, a focus on the wartime suffering of Europe's Jews is obligatory. 
Yehuda Bauer, a prominent Holocaust specialist who is a professor at
Tim Cole, a history professor and prominent specialist of Holocaust studies, writes in his book Selling the Holocaust: “From a relatively slow start, we have now come to the point where Jewish culture in particular, and Western culture more generally, are saturated with the 'Holocaust’. Indeed, the ‘Holocaust’ has saturated Western culture to such an extent that it appears not only centre stage, but also lurks in the background. This can be seen in the remarkable number of contemporary movies which include the 'Holocaust’ as plot or sub-plot.” 
How did the Holocaust come to play such a large role in

Exploiting the Holocaust
What’s behind the Holocaust remembrance campaign? Whose interests does it serve?
It is, of course, fitting and proper to remember victims of genocide, war and oppression. But Holocaust remembrance is not, as its supporters claim, a noble effort motivated by sincere concern for humanity. Instead, this relentless campaign is an expression of Jewish-Zionist power, and is designed to further Jewish-Zionist interests.
On the occasion of the opening of the US Holocaust Memorial Museum on the Mall in
“It’s not Jewish tragedy that’s remembered
on the Mall this week;
it’s Jewish power to which homage is paid.” 
The Holocaust Remembrance campaign encourages sympathy and support for Jews and
It also reminds average Jews that they are at the mercy of the dark forces of the goyim and must send money into Jewish Holocaust organizations. It reinforces in the mind of the ordinary Jew, that he must stick with his own kind and never forget these horrors, and also that this Holocaust, among all the others, is the only one of importance in the world due to the "special status" of the jew in God's eyes.
Norman Finkelstein, a Jewish scholar who teaches at DePaul University in Chicago, writes in his bestselling book, The Holocaust Industry, that “invoking The Holocaust” is “a ploy to delegitimize all criticism of Jews.”
He adds: “By conferring total blamelessness on Jews, the Holocaust dogma immunizes
Paula Hyman, a professor of modern Jewish history at Yale University, has observed: “With regard to
The invocation of the suffering endured by the Jews under the Nazis often takes the place of rational argument, and is expected to convince doubters of the legitimacy of current Israeli government policy.” 
This view is echoed by another Jewish scholar, Tony Judt, who is director of the Remarque Institute at
“The Shoah [Hebrew term for Holocaust] is frequently exploited in
SHOAH is what was promised to the Palestinians during the high rhetoric stage of the last massacre.
It allows Israel to trump any other nation's sufferings (and justify its own excesses) with the claim that the Jewish catastrophe was unique and incomparable; and (in contradiction to the first two) it is adduced as an all-purpose metaphor for evil ~ anywhere, everywhere and always ~ and taught to schoolchildren all over America and Europe without any reference to context or cause.
This modern instrumentalization of the Holocaust
for political advantage is
ethically disreputable and politically imprudent.”
In Israel, says Tom Segev, a prominent Israeli journalist and author, the Holocaust has become “an object of worship.” Moreover, he writes, “the 'heritage of the Holocaust,’ as it is taught in [Israel’s] schools and fostered in national memorial ceremonies, often encourages insular chauvinism and a sense that the Nazi extermination of the Jews justifies any act that seems to contribute to Israel’s security, including the oppression of the population in the territories occupied by Israel in the Six-Day War.” 
Amira Hass, an award-winning Israeli journalist and author, is even more blunt. Writing in a leading Israeli daily paper, she says: 
The suffering our parents endured in the ghettos and concentration camps that filled Europe, the physical and mental anguish and torment that our parents were subjected to every single day since the `liberation,’ are used as weapons to thwart any international criticism of the society we are creating here.
This is a society with built-in discrimination on the basis of nationality, and the discrimination is spreading on either side of the Green Line. This is a society that is systematically continuing to banish the Palestinian nation from its land and usurp its rights as a nation and its chances for a humane future."
The great lesson of the Holocaust, says
No Similar Remembrance of Non-Jews
Non-Jewish victims of genocide, oppression and war do not merit the same consideration as do Jewish victims of the Holocaust. There are no comparable museums, memorials or solemn ceremonies to commemorate, for example, the vastly greater number of victims of Soviet and Chinese Communism.As historians acknowledge, the non-Jewish victims of Soviet Russian dictator Joseph Stalin greatly outnumber the Jews who perished as a result of Hitler’s policies.
Robert Conquest, a prominent scholar of twentieth century Russian history, estimates the number of those who lost their lives as a consequence of Stalin’s policies as “no fewer than 20 million.” 
Authoritative estimates of the number of Chinese who perished as victims of killings, repression, starvation and forced labor under the Communist regime of Mao Zedong range from about 30 million to more than 60 million. Americans are trained and encouraged to “know” that six million Jews were murdered by the Nazis in World War II.
But few Americans, even well-educated ones, have any idea of how many Russians, Poles, Chinese or even Americans lost their lives in that global conflict.Estimates of the number of Chinese who lost their lives as direct and indirect victims of Japanese aggression and occupation during the 1930s and 1940s range from about ten million to more than twice that number. The Chinese government has put the figure at 35 million. 
During the years 1885 through 1908, an estimated five to eight million Africans perished in the
'Holocaust Denial' Laws
In some countries special “Holocaust denial” laws stifle free and objective discussion of the Holocaust issue.
Even factually accurate statements that violate “Holocaust denial” laws are punished. Over the years, many individuals in those countries have been fined, imprisoned or forced into exile for disputing Holocaust claims.
The Holocaust is often treated with reverence, and as a central event of world history. For many Jews, says Rabbi Michael Goldberg, a Jewish author and religious leader,
the “veneration” of the Holocaust has become a new religion.
“And as with any organized church,” he adds, “this Holocaust cult has its own tenets of faith, rites, and shrines.” 
The Holocaust remembrance campaign reflects an arrogant view of Jews as a special and superior people. Abraham Foxman, head of the Anti-Defamation League ~ one of the most influential Zionist groups ~ has declared:
“The Holocaust is something different. It is a singular event. It is not simply one example of genocide but a near successful attempt on the life of God's chosen children and, thus, on God himself. It is an event that is the antithesis of Creation as recorded in the Bible; and like its direct opposite, which is relived weekly with the Sabbath and yearly with the Torah, it must be remembered from generation to generation.” 
Jewish death and suffering do not deserve to be venerated more than the death and suffering of non-Jews. The Holocaust remembrance campaign deserves scorn, not support, because it is a one-sided effort that serves narrow Jewish and Israeli interests and bolsters Jewish-Zionist power. (Guilt enables the Zioists to get away with more and also demand even more money in reparation from Germany)
