Peace process started in Holocaust

By Obadiah Shoher - Samson Blinded

The world’s attempts at the peace process can only be understood in historical context. On their own, they are unintelligible. Why, indeed, the countries are so concerned with national rights of a three-million-people no-nation? The West doesn’t support independence for hundreds of liberation movements worldwide even when they clearly involve historically, linguistically, and genetically distinguishable nations. Nor is the West overly concerned with one country taking another’s land: the paragon of democracy had itself annexed a third of Mexico; Russia, Poland, Czechoslovakia, and France annexed core German lands. Nor is anyone really concerned about suppressing minorities, especially when they are hostile: there is no need to appeal to the well-known example of Russia and Chechens when France legalized Breton names only a few years ago. It’s also hard to see how is the West concerned with religious freedom in the places like Saudi Arabia.

Perhaps Israel is pushed to inessential concessions only? On the contrary, the Road Map plan demands us ceding the Temple Mount, Jerusalem, and Judea. If there are Jewish territories on earth, those are the ones. It’s a sort of Russia abandoning Kremlin or America selling the White House.
Maybe some painful concessions are historically normal? Not for victors. There is not a single instance in the world history when an attacked country won the war, conquered the land from its enemy, and then relinquished it out of goodwill. Israel was attacked half a dozen times in six decades; taking over the enemy’s land is a historically standard retribution.

Is there any benefit for Israel in agreeing to the concessions, however bizarre? No, they are clearly suicidal. No state can possibly exist in eight-mile-wide borders, let alone a state besieged by three hundred million enemies.

International attitude to Israel is clarified by the auxiliary demands. Israel has to fight nicely, send her children into urban combat, and even there somehow inquire of the terrorist affiliation before shooting. Israel has to be liberal – that is, abandon Judaism which demands strict morality. Israel has to open herself to foreign influence, thus forgoing uniquely Jewish lifestyle. Israel has to be democratic: in plain English, allow Arab voters to subvert the Jewish state. Israel has to be tolerant to minorities and accept Arabs as one third of her population. What remains of the Jewish state when all those ultimatums are implemented?

Look further. The US, our closest ally, bans our attack on Iran which will get nuclear weapons the next year. The US Administration is therefore okay with nuclear Iran which wants to wipe Israel off the map. This is not an isolated event: America condemned Israel for bombing the Iraqi nuclear reactor. In 1967, the outlook was apocalyptic, Jews digged tens of thousands of graves and prepared for total annihilation, but the US barred us from preempting; likewise in 1973. Two years after Holocaust, the United Stated and Britain did not give their UN votes for establishing Jewish state. When the state was established nonetheless, they embargoed weapons sales.

Polls indicate moderate anti-Semitism in America up to 1937, around 15%. In the terms of today’s polls, those were hardcore anti-Semites, with about twice that many latent Jew-haters. Not surprisingly, then, that polls indicate a sharp rise of American anti-Semitism in 1939-41 when papers delivered the news of anti-Semitic repressions in Germany and Austria. Common Americans saw that anti-Semitism is actionable and socially acceptable. During the war, polls steadily placed Jews as the most disliked group in America well ahead of its German and Japanese citizens.

In 1944, Germans came up with an offer to release up to one million Jews; the Allies refused to negotiate. When Jewish organizations scrambled to collect the necessary amount, the Allies informed them that the borders would remain shut. The Jews were sent to Auschwitz.

During the Holocaust, America, Britain, and Russia conducted daily radio broadcasts on occupied territories. Millions of people listened to every word. Not a single time had the broadcasters warned the Jews to flee or told about the massacres. Stalin new about the extermination from day one, Roosevelt and Churchill – at least from January 1942, probably earlier. Their intelligence intercepted German radio transmissions with exact numbers of murdered Jews, but they did not warn the Jews to flee. So when the Jews boarded the trains to Auschwitz, the name meant nothing to them.

Before the war, when Germans and Austrians repressed the Jews atrociously, Britain concurred with exactly similar measures: just like Germany and Austria, Britain forbade Jews to buy land – in the Jewish national home, entrusted to Britain by the League of Nations. The 1939 White Paper formally reneged on the Balfour declaration and the Mandate’s terms, limited Jewish immigration to a trickle, subject to Arab approval, and blocked Jews from the only place in the world they could escape to.
The free world gathered at the Evian conference to find a place for Jewish refugees. At the time, immigration to the US ran well below the legally established quota; even without moral considerations, the law allowed about 100,000 more immigrants per year. The US and Britain announced they would not admit any refugees, a euphemism for Jewish undesirables. The Britain reneged on its obligation to establish Jewish national home in Palestine just when it was most needed, and curtailed immigration into our own land; a laughable explanation was that the Arabs were upset about the coming Jews – as if the Britain cared in the least about opinions of Palestinian peasants. There was no place for Jews in other parts of the globe-spanning British empire, too. Other countries happily followed the suit. The Germans got the message: their opponents don’t want the Jews anywhere.

The Holocaust was a four-headed beast: America, Britain, and Russia played their parts.

The peace process is just another means of Holocaust
