Holocaust Survivors join NYC’s Ad War, accuse Israel of genocide

You might have missed the recent uproar about controversial MTA ads depicting a Palestinian man donning a kefiyah next to the words “Killing Jews is Worship…That’s his Jihad, What’s Yours?” Or the one before that, by Elie Wiesel, published in the New York Times, wherein he condemns “child sacrifice by Hamas.” But they are not alone. There is an Israeli-Palestinian conflict raging in NYC – in newspapers and on billboards all over the city.Screen Shot 2015-04-23 at 3.34.20 AM

I saw a pro-Palestinian MTA ad first-hand, two weeks ago, on the A line, but unfortunately didn’t take a photo of it. NYC is turning into ground zero for the war of words on Israel and Palestine.

Now, New Yorker’s have yet another ad to chew on, this time sponsored by Holocaust survivors. The group of 300 survivors and their descendants have chipped in to buy an ad in the New York Times, condemning Israeli atrocities against Palestinians, which they unabashedly describe as – yes, genocide. And if that weren’t blasphemous enough, they call for a “full economic, cultural and academic boycott of Israel.”

I can already hear the cries of “anti-semitism” and “self-hating Jews” by those who place Israel’s existence above everyone else’s – including Jews. These days, in the mainstream media, everyone’s an “anti-semite,” even if they’re Jewish and survived the Holocaust.

Dozens of Holocaust survivors, together with hundreds of descendants of Holocaust survivors and victims, have accused Israel of “genocide” for the deaths of more than 2,000 Palestinians in Gaza since the conflict erupted in July.

In an open letter released by the International Jewish Anti-Zionist Network and published as an advert in The New York Times, the group calls for a full economic, cultural and academic boycott of Israel over its “wholesale effort to destroy Gaza”.

“Genocide begins with the silence of the world,” the statement reads, “We must raise our collective voices and use our collective power to bring about an end to all forms of racism, including the ongoing genocide of Palestinian people.”

The statement also condemns the United States for its financial and diplomatic support of Israel.

The signatories express alarm at “the extreme, racist dehumanization of Palestinians in Israeli society, which has reached a fever pitch.”

This condemnation was designed as a response to a widely-published advertisement from Nobel prize-winning author Elie Wiesel that condemned Hamas for its “use of children as human shields”.

The statement reads: “We are disgusted and outraged by Elie Wiesel’s abuse of our history […] to justify the unjustifiable.”

Of the 327 signatories, 40 survived the Holocaust and the other 287 are descendants of Holocaust survivors or victims.

    The truth is this, nowhere is it writen that Jews is to be slaughtered in islam, anyone stating this, isnt a Muslim.
    No more Muslim that Christians slaughtering Others in the name of their belife or god.
    And both use “religion” to justify atricetys and crimes comitted to land and people, nowhere is this alowed to do, in all the monoestic religions on this earth.
    Its simply not alowe to kill.

    The Torah, is the beginning, the New testament is the fundation of this faith, Islam is the consolitation of direction and faith, and is exactly the same teachined by Jesus, no differenc what so ever, the only diffenece is time and the settings, the teachings is the same.

    The Herbrews is reagarded as the followers of The Book, as it was writen in the semittic language Allah.
    And they where and stil is protected by an good and true Muslim and Islamic countrys as it should be.

    Never blend this into the ZioNiazis agenda to conquer Palestina, they will in the end, destroy both lands and its people, one been clensed and one will be scorn, and the Zionists will once again dragg the “jewish” into the mudd with consequenses we dont know yett.
    The “jews” greatest enemy is the Zionists insane cult.
    I hope and pray with those “jews” that sees the same, its in the end not about Jews at all, but about simple imperialism and greed.

    wake up israel

    peace

  2. Religion and the excuse to use your belief system to control, to conquer, to destroy!

    Alla, Christ, Enki, Krishna, I don’t see people yelling out Screaming Enki Wills it as they slaughter some other culture.

    your all brain washed worthless low vibrational tools used for an agenda you have no idea is happening.

    Islam is fine if people aren’t using it to slaughter others and impose there will, same for Christians.

    And The Holocaust WHAHAHA! Give me a Break! It never happened no jewish Holocaust no gas chambers, no jewish torture, soap skin, toilet fetishes, nothing! It’s all made up!

    But Palestine is happening now, what happened to Libya, what is happening to Yemen, these are happening now.
    We need to do something about it.

    Books are words from someone else in history. Do they still function in a modern peaceful society?
    7000 years ago they had more wisdom!
    But the same psychology flawed and weak came and burned down the library of Alexander and with it began the secret society.
